The polling place for jazz
From 1953, when it was set up, to 1964, when it was acquired by ABC, Riverside Records rivalled Blue Note and Prestige as one of the leading independent jazz labels based in New York City.

Joerg Steineck is a German filmmaker who has made both documentary and fictional films. His latest project Inside Scofield is, as the title suggests, a look at guitar icon John Scofield's career and life on (and off) the road as a touring jazz musician.By Mike Jacobs
The beauty of Frank Sinatra in his 70-year career is that there's never anything that becomes boring or stale.
