”Al Molina's album, “Straight From The Heart”, is exactly That...........so lyrical,sensitive to the point of being “fragile” yet on fire throughout. It's been a long time since I've heard such pretty, honest music released, seemingly unaffected by all of the heavy industry marketing currently going on. I hope the entire world gets to hear this beautful album .....” Bobby Shew

“One of the most lyrical,tasteful and melodic trumpet players on the jazz scene today” ........LarryVuckovich:

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.
