Anna Mia: Miasophy

Read "Miasophy" reviewed by Martin McFie

People took to the streets and the president left town for a long trip to Russia, which then annexed the Crimea. This is not the plot of a Gilbert ...


Yakiv Tsvietinskyi


Jazz trumpeter Yakiv Tsvietinskyi is one of the modern voices of the Ukrainian jazz scene. Deeply rooted in classical and modernist music as a composer, Yakiv creates jazz pieces with developed complex textures while maintaining the freedom and spontaneity of the improvisational nature of jazz. His trumpet style combines the influences of Chet Baker’s lyricism, Clark Terry’s feel of motion, Tomasz Stanko’s sound and Kenny Wheeler’s unpredictability. Born in 1990s and being a classically trained trumpet player in industrial Dnipro, Ukraine, there was no way to learn jazz other than self-education

Konstantin Ionenko Quartet: Noema

Read "Noema" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Only Ionenko and drummer Pavel Galitsky remain from that group, joined by new members Dima Bondarev (flugelhorn) and Alex Maksymiw (guitar). There was precedent for working with a guitarist, ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
