John Sharpe's Best Releases Of 2019

Read "John Sharpe's Best Releases Of 2019" reviewed by John Sharpe

There's sometimes a backlash against picking the year's best albums. Understandably so when it entails pitting one honest artistic endeavour against another. Best to view the selections as a chance to pick up on something that you might otherwise have missed. As a listener I always look forward to the annual year end lists for precisely ...

Jones Jones: A Jones In Time Saves Nine

Read "A Jones In Time Saves Nine" reviewed by John Sharpe

That's not exactly prolific, but may well be an accurate reflection of the challenge implicit in bringing together colleagues separated by the 5795 miles between reedman Larry Ochs and bassist Mark Dresser in California, and percussionist Vladimir Tarasov ...

The Ganelin Trio: Creative Tensions

Read "The Ganelin Trio: Creative Tensions" reviewed by Duncan Heining

Imagine a time, not so very long ago, when a foreign Jazz/Improvising Trio created such a stir in Britain that they made the TV news! Imagine the national newspapers queuing round the block for interviews. And imagine London's Bloomsbury Theatre filled with musicians, journalists and arts administrators--not to mention the odd, very odd, raincoated spook.

Slava Ganelin, Alexey Kruglov, Oleg Yudanov: Us

Read "Us" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Con lo stesso titolo di uno dei più celebrati album di Peter Gabriel, torna un artista nel suo orticello altrettanto leggendario, quello Slava (al secolo Vyacheslav) Ganelin che a cavallo fra anni Settanta e Ottanta alla testa del ben noto Ganelin Trio fece alzare le orecchie a parecchi a proposito di quanto il nuovo jazz era ...

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.
