Read "Lucia Cadotsch: Whispers Speak Louder than Screams" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

Speak Low (Enja Records, 2017), the debut release of her current Trio of the same name, catapulted Lucia Cadotsch among the new artists that promise to write original chapters of vocal jazz while showing deference to the artists that preceded them.

Read "Jazzfestival Saalfelden 2017" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Fotografare lo stato dell'arte nell'ambito del jazz e delle musiche limitrofe è compito che il festival di Saalfelden svolge assai bene ormai da decenni.

Igor Osypov Quartet: Dream Delivery

Read "Dream Delivery" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Igor Osypov's debut album, I (Unit Records, 2015), was quite promising in many ways. Yet, it was a snapshot of an artist still in the formative stages of the craft. Thus, the content of the Berlin-based plectrist's Dream Delivery came as a pleasant shock. Seemingly, within the past year, Osypov has taken prodigious strides towards staking ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
