Nicknames. Used to be that every baseball player worth his ash bat earned a nickname. The Babe, Yogi Berra, The Kid, Three Finger. Football and basketball were no different. Boomer Esiason, Big Spain, Birdman, Air Jordan. While soccer in America seems to have escaped this mostly male preoccupation of renaming people, golf, that most courteous sport, ...

Jure Pukl: Doubtless

Read "Doubtless" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Melissa Aldana guested on two tracks featured on Jure Pukl's previous album Hybrid (Whirlwind, 2017), so it's no surprise that she's been recruited again for Pukl's follow-up recording. However, taking a slightly different tack, the saxophonist has dispensed with a piano or any chordal instrument for this set. But having two front line tenor saxophones isn't ...

Roberto Magris Trio & Herb Geller: An Evening with Herb Geller & the Roberto Magris Trio: Live in Europe 2009

Read "An Evening with Herb Geller & the Roberto Magris Trio: Live in Europe 2009" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

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.
