Jon Regen's long-awaited new album LET IT GO is availble online now.

LET IT GO is available online now, and will be released on CD in the coming weeks.

REVIEW: Singer/songwriter/pianist Jon Regen returns with Let It Go, a collection of piano pop gems along the lines of his previous record Almost Home. Regen opens up his trio sound this time, adding guitarist Andy Summers to the excellent “Close to Me" and “Finding My Way Back to Me" and inviting singers Martha Wainwright and Kami Thompson and cellist Julia Kent to join him on a few tunes. But it's Regen's own writing and crooning that carry the day here: “Better Days," “Disappear" and the title tune make the most impact with no “name" assistance whatsoever. Regen's proven himself a master of jazz and pop on separate records; now it's time for him to rejoin the two sides of his personality and sew a truly distinctive place for himself in the music tapestry.

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!
