Read "Remembering Turkish pianist and trombonist Elvan Araci" reviewed by Francesco Martinelli

From 1977 to 1999 Aracı lived in Sweden where he notably collaborated with Muvaffak `Maffy` Falay, Okay Temiz and Bernt Rosengren, notably in Maffy Falay's sextet with Rosengren, Åke Johansson on piano, ...

Brian Lynch: Unsung Heroes

Read "Unsung Heroes" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Trumpeter extraordinaire Brian Lynch is always willing, quite rightly, to acknowledge the masters who have gone before him. Some of the finest jazz trumpeters never made it big, while others no longer sit as securely in the minds of jazz fans as they once did. Nevertheless, they are all part, as Lynch writes, of “the jazz ...

Brian Lynch: Unsung Heroes

Read "Unsung Heroes" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Trumpet tribute albums are a tricky business. There are those in jazz, like Miles Davis and Louis Armstrong, who have been endlessly saluted, creating a culture of mass appeal and celebration that's not always a good thing. On the surface, projects that praise these jazz heroes bring well-deserved exposure to their music and might, but they ...

Laurindo Almeida, Charlie Byrd, and Ralph Towner

Read "Laurindo Almeida, Charlie Byrd, and Ralph Towner" reviewed by Sean Dietrich

The concert guitar is hailed by many as the perfect instrument. After being perfected in the Baroque age, virtuosos believed the wooden torso to posses the variety of an orchestra. The concert guitar produces a wide range of tone, timber, color, and dynamic expression unlike any other stringed instrument, capable of projecting a delicate voice of ...

Sammy Cahn, Vernon Duke, and Earl Zindars

Read "Sammy Cahn, Vernon Duke, and Earl Zindars" reviewed by Sean Dietrich

Standards are the language of jazz. Standards represent music that have withstood the ruthless test of time. Songs built by craftsman, instead of limericks scribbled by American idols adorned in sequins and leather chaps. Music that has been constructed to last, built with the brick and mortar of harmony and melody. And yet, too often, the ...

Vic Damon, 30th Street Studio, Village Vanguard

Read "Vic Damon, 30th Street Studio, Village Vanguard" reviewed by Sean Dietrich

The oft forgotten recording studio. It's humble presence remains under-acclaimed. Electric lights suspended high above a giant mess of cables. Omniscient microphones standing tall, appraising the heart of arrogant musicians who approach. Scribbled papers rest on music stands, while heated brawls are incubated among hot headed horn players. This is where music is born. And yet ...

Chu Berry, Joe Harriott, and Yusef Lateef

Read "Chu Berry, Joe Harriott, and Yusef Lateef" reviewed by Sean Dietrich

The role call for sax genius is a lengthy one. But upon briefly thumbing past names like Charlie Parker, John Coltrane and Coleman Hawkins, one finds a glow beneath the surface radiating from lesser known players. Members of the vast sax community, who don't often get the same press other celebrated players receive. ...

Read "Roland Hanna, Tete Montoliu, and Andre Previn" reviewed by Sean Dietrich

Throughout the line of musical history, certain pianists have changed the way audiences hear music. Musicians who dare to peek above a sea of bobbing heads, and create something unique. These specially cursed individuals have looked within themselves, and somehow added flesh to fantasy.While there are scores of brilliant pianists from years gone by, ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
