Douye: At Last, A Sophisticated Lady

Read "Douye: At Last,  A Sophisticated Lady" reviewed by Jim Worsley

Arturo O'Farrill, Chucho Valdes: Familia: Tribute to Bebo & Chico

Read "Familia: Tribute to Bebo & Chico" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Dizzy Gillespie ricordava con amarezza il modo con cui la critica jazz aveva trattato la sua collaborazione col conguero Chano Pozo, giudicandola un'eccentricità marginale. Il trombettista la giudicava invece il momento culminante della sua carriera. Quell'atteggiamento verso il cosiddetto Latin Jazz è ancora diffuso e il multiforme terreno d'incontro tra jazz e musiche dei caraibi è ...

Albert Marques Trio: Live In The South Bronx

Read "Live In The South Bronx" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


There's something uncommonly special about the way that the young Spanish pianist Albert Marques manages to wed elegant expressions with rumbling designs in his work, limning the very nature of his being and his adopted Bronx turf through fingers and keys. He's “tough but sweet" according to Arturo O'Farrill, who penned the liner notes for this ...

The O'Farrill Brothers Band: Sensing Flight

Read "Sensing Flight" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

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!
