”Of course, that’s not to say that the teaming of Patitucci, Lovano and Blade doesn’t deliver on its promise. ... When it comes to regional flavoring, though, nothing proves tastier than the Boccato-augmented quartet performance of 'Messaien’s Gumbo'.” - Mike Joyce - JazzTimes, Dec/09.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
