Yuhan Su

In many ways, Yuhan Su represents the voice of the new generation of jazz musicians. Though she is firmly rooted in jazz tradition, her music is innovative, emotional, cerebral and most importantly, always lyrical. Her compositions and improvisations are uniquely hers, marked with an amalgamation of complexity, intensity and emotional resonance. And though she is capable of blistering technique, she always maintains a sense of melodic lyricism and wonder in her playing. "It's been a pretty wild music journey. From learning J.S. Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Johannes Brahms, Robert Schuman..'s music by playing piano, and getting highly inspired by Ravel, Debussy, Bela Bartok by studying composition, until my percussion study in the university and graduate school, John Cage, Steve Reich, Iannis Xenakis, Keiko Abe, Minoru Miki..

Read "A Room of One's Own" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Inner Circle Music: Creativity and Community Spirit

Read "Inner Circle Music: Creativity and Community Spirit" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

The music industry today is defined by a strange paradox: there are too few labels and too many. On the one hand, the major labels have merged and sign less jazz artists, meaning the dream of a company with plenty of promotional muscles becomes harder to achieve. On the other hand, more and more musicians have ...

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.
