About the Album

"The Wonder of Being Here" is a track from Lafayette Gilchrist's masterful double album "NOW." "NOW” features Gilchrist's formidable group Specials Revealed with bassist Herman Burney and drummer Eric Kennedy in a program that addresses life in Baltimore, race relations in America and affairs of the heart. It’s the pianist's first trio album since 2007 and follows last year’s solo piano album, Dark Matter, which earned a place on many critics Best of 2019 lists.

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!
