Fiona's Comments

Brilliant album. Whether its the full force bull rush of large ensemble avant garde tracks, the spacey blissed-out tracks, or the brilliant covers of Charles Mingus and The Beatles, Hum is one of the under-recognized best albums of 2011. Highly Recommended. Jazz from the Copenhagen and Berlin scenes.

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.
