Sinan Bakir is being hailed as not only a virtuoso player, but also a masterful composer. His album On My Way, with Thomson Kneeland and Mark Ferber, is described by Richard Kamins of the Hartford Courant as “a solid debut. It's easy to put this music on and just let it play.

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!
