All About Jazz Launches New Column With Pianist Ahmad Jamal!


Sign in to view read count
Since its inception, All About Jazz has delivered exhaustive coverage with some of the most extensive, in-depth interviews anywhere. AAJ will continue to provide the same degree of feature-rich coverage (e.g. Jack DeJohnette Week), but for those artists who have already received the “in-depth" treatment, our new Catching Up With column will allow us to revisit them while focusing primarily on recent topics.

AAJ Senior Editor Chris May kicks off the new column with Catching Up With Ahmad Jamal, where the legendary pianist talks about his latest recording, Blue Moon (Jazz Village, 2012)—and answers a question about trumpeter Miles Davis' famous quote, “All my inspiration today comes from Ahmad Jamal."

You can also read Chris' Extended Analysis of Blue Moon, set for European release on February 6, and a week later in North America, on February 14.

Be sure to check out our new Catching Up With column, and the buzz surrounding Ahmad Jamal and Blue Moon at All About Jazz today!

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
