I am very excited to be performing solo guitar as part of a discussion of Philip Bohlman’s new book, Jazz Worlds/World Jazz. It’s a free event open to the public and should be a fascinating conversation with Philip Bohlman and Travis Jackson. Click here for more info.

Philip Bohlman discusses his new book Jazz Worlds/World Jazz with Travis Jackson. Michael Allemana will contribute musically to the evening’s conversations, performing jazz guitar from traditions close to home – the Chicago sound of the great Von Freeman, with whom Michael played for many years – and from traditions farther field, not least among them his own connections to Brazilian jazz.
