If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.
You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...
This week we begin with Vijay Iyer playing music from Far From Over, the powerful release he has recorded with his Sextet and profiling their show in Kansas City at The Gem Theater headlining a stellar night of jazz that was kicked off by a performance with Hermon Mehari and Logan Richardson. We also focus on Pittsburgh's jazz cat DK Anderson and a look into a chance meeting he had with the great Stanley Turrentine.
We also feature modern day bassist Max Moran and his current project, the Neospectric. Max talked about his roots that began with the mighty Charles Mingus and other tales involving Brian Blade. The proverbial jazz lights will be lowered in honor of Halloween with a classic called by Louis Armstrong and Jimmy Dorsey with his Orchestra.
