Anna Kolchina: Wild Is The Wind

Read "Wild Is The Wind" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


Anna Kolchina's debut Wild is the Wind is a masterclass in ensemble performance. Backed by pianist John Di Martino, bassist Peter Washington, and drummer Willie Jones, Kolchina is more an equal quartet member than a singer backed by a trio.

Organ Grinder Swing–Adrienne Fenemor, Little Charlie, Matthew Kaminski, Music Soup, King Louie & LaRhonda Steele

Read "Organ Grinder Swing–Adrienne Fenemor, Little Charlie, Matthew Kaminski, Music Soup, King Louie & LaRhonda Steele" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


There are certain things that evoke memory more than smells and sound. Unfiltered Lucky Strike cigarettes, just lit, make me think of my dad's office in the 1960s. Unfiltered Lucky Strike cigarettes, iced-cold Budweiser in the bottle, and organ jazz and blues, make me think of what dark, urban dives should smell, taste and sound like ...

Steve Turre: Spiritman

Read "Spiritman" reviewed by Luca Muchetti


Torna Steve Turre, il “suonatore di conchiglie," o -se preferite -il sideman di giganti come Ray Charles e Carlos Santana. Spiritman rappresenta un vero e proprio back to the roots, verso quella essenzialità swing che il trombonista sembrava aver messo da parte da tempo in favore di percorsi più concettuali e, in parte, segnati anche dall'utilizzo ...

Read "Thelonious Monk" reviewed by Chris Kompanek


The remastered Monk is actually two mini-sets melded into one with the first quintet consisting of the underrated trumpeter Ray Copeland, tenor saxophonist Frank Foster and bassist Curly Russell, with the legendary Art Blakey holding it all together on drums. These first four tracks (including a beautiful rendition of the Jerome Kern classic “Smoke Gets in ...

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!
