MUSICIAN Born:

Yvonnick Prene

Born in Paris, he began as a guitarist, later switching to the diatonic harmonica, and eventually settling on the chromatic harmonica as his primary instrument. He first began playing the harmonica professionally in Parisian clubs at 17, then started his studies at Sorbonne University, from which he received a master's degree in music (2011). While still enrolled at the Sorbonne, Prené relocated to New York City and was awarded multiple full-tuition scholarships at The City College of New York, (MICEFA, 2007), Columbia University (Alliance Program, 2008) and at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music (Merit-Based Scholarship, 2009) where he had the opportunity to study with Lee Konitz and Reggie Workman among others

Scott Tixier: Cosmic Adventure

Read "Cosmic Adventure" reviewed by Luca Muchetti

C'era un violino in un paese lontano lontano. Ha davvero il sapore di una scorribanda stellare l'album del violinista statunitense Scott Tixier. In un album che scorre via veloce con rara piacevolezza il musicista francese, a quattro anni dal debutto di Brooklyn Bazaar, condensa in 46 minuti il meglio della sua estetica più recente fra ritmi ...

Read "The Big Beat: Edwin G. Hamilton, Scott Neumann, Donald Edwards, Arthur Vint, Rob Garcia, Jeremy Warren" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

This is a spotlight on drums...a pretty big spotlight. Edwin G. Hamilton The Whole World Must Change Self Produced2016 It's hard enough to find a drummer, much less one who sings. There is Les DeMerle, and he is fine, but, the drummer/singer is a pretty hard chair to fill, ...

Lorin Cohen: Home

Read "Home" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Vari aspetti distinguono quest'album rispetto alla produzione del mainstream contemporaneo. Per il suo esordio da leader il contrabbassista e compositore Lorin Cohen ha riunito un settetto dall'originale e accattivante tavolozza timbrica, ottenuta accostando i suoni del vibrafono (Joe Locke), dell'armonica (Yvonnick Prene) e dello steel pan (Victor Provost). Autore di tutte le composizioni, Cohen ...

Yvonnick Prene: Breathe

Read "Breathe" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Yvonnick Prene has called New York home since 2007, but jazz fans in and around the Big Apple and beyond can be forgiven if they lacked awareness about his harmonica skills until more recent times.

Lorin Cohen: Home

Read "Home" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

What's “home?" Is it where somebody's born and raised? Is it where a person resides at a given time? Or is it any place where an individual finds a high level of comfort, joy, and possibility? For Lorin Cohen, it's all three. This talented bassist-composer makes that fact plainly apparent on this, his leader debut.

Yvonnick Prene and Pasquale Grasso: Merci Toots

Read "Merci Toots" reviewed by Chris Mosey

It is often said--rather nastily--that nobody can name five famous Belgians. Jazz fans can certainly name one: harmonicist Toots Thielemans. Thielemans, who in 2014 announced his retirement at the age of 92, decamped from his homeland after the war to play with just about everyone in the US, including Charlie Parker and--primarily--George Shearing. ...

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.
