Harry Skoler: Living in Sound - The Music of Charles Mingus

Read "Living in Sound - The Music of Charles Mingus" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

L'autore e primo solista di questo progetto è un clarinettista--già allievo di Jimmy Giuffre al New England Conservatory e da anni professore al Berklee College--la cui vita è stata radicalmente influenzata dalla passione per l'opera di Mingus. In collaborazione col sassofonista ...

Read "Jazzmeia Horn at Jazz Alley" reviewed by Paul Rauch

Jazzmeia Horn Jazz Alley Seattle, WA December 7, 2021 The arrival of jazz vocalist Jazzmeia Horn in Seattle for a two-day run at Jazz Alley represented in many ways, the return of international touring jazz artists to the esteemed and historic venue, after a fall that featured resident jazz artists and r&b stars.

Read "Some Girls' (Voices) Are Bigger Than Others" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

Most of these are brand new releases, so grab them up and support musicians stuck, with the rest of us, in lock-down mode. Pop matters trots out some obscure artists including Faun Fables, Paolo Nutini and Lorna Hunt. Playlist Discussion of Leslie ...

Showtime, don't ya know? Jazzmeia Horn was scheduled to perform in Baton Rouge recently, but the gig got 'coronaed.' So, we do a mini-concert here, and hope she can reschedule when this plague dissipates. Shoot, they even cancelled the St. Patrick's Day parade here; so you know this is serious business. We also continue centennial celebrations for Dave Brubeck (Time Further Out) and Charlie Parker (recreating a Savoy 45rpm release). More Sonny Rollins, too: this time with Monk from the ...
