ALL ABOUT JAZZ : Listening to The Angry St. Bernard by musician and composer Giulia Barba, it is surprising to learn that it is her debut recording. A baritone saxophonist (maybe the Italian equivalent to Claire Daly), she displays a jazz veteran's maturity in both her compositions and playing. (Mark Corroto, All About Jazz)

“With reforms like The Angry St. Bernard there is no need for a revolution. The avant-garde on this record means no break-up with the tradition, but an ingenious processing of it” (5 stars review, Het Parool, NL).

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!
