”This is very good jazz record that is never boring, and demonstrates a very mature vision.” -Matthew Sweeney, Foreign Accents

“Poontet è una piccola, sorprendente finestra aperta sulla effervescente scena musicale di Seattle. . . . Poontet è un'idea del batterista Brad Gibson realizzata con autorevolezza e piglio da leader, con leggerezza e sensibilità negli arrangiamenti, attraverso i quali prende forma una visione musicale matura e convincente.” -Vincenzo Roggero, All About Jazz Italia

“If smooth jazz (and I use that term for anything that isn’t straight ahead swing nor Latin-ish) but if smooth jazz didn’t suck and was actually awesome, it would be this record.” -HB Radke

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
