Nathen Page: Fiery Picker

Nathen Page: Fiery Picker

Guitarist Nathen Page was at home in the modal jazz idiom of the 1970s and '80s. Though not especially well known by jazz fans due to his retreat to Florida in the 1970s and his limited-distribution releases on his Hugo Music label, Page was a remarkable player. He straddled multiple genres, from a metallic sound found ...

Big 10 by Ben Webster

As part of my ongoing series on great female Brazilian pop singers of the 1960s and '70s, I'm focusing today on Maria Creuza. In particular, I'm looking at the 10 or so albums she recorded for Brazilian RCA from 1973 to 1982. Born in 1944, Creuza's specialty were ballads about heartbreak, and she was Vinicius de ...

Rob Madna: A Dutch Discovery

Rob Madna: A Dutch Discovery

For many JazzWax readers, this blog is a resource that happily turns them onto jazz musicians and recordings they didn't know previously. But every so often, that wow sensation happens to me. My own discovery happened a few weeks ago while posting about Joy Marshall (here and here). In the latter post, I featured a video ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
