Read "Grand Company" reviewed by Pierre Giroux

Ray Gallon is a pianist with a rich and complex musical vocabulary.

Adding to the enjoyment is the sophistication of the recording, which was made at the Van Gelder Recording Studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, under engineer Maureen Sickler.

Read "The Electric Years Box Set" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

In a year that has brought us a true bounty of previously unheard majesty including Evenings at the Village Gate: John Coltrane with Eric Dolphy (Impulse!), and Bill Evans; Treasures: Solo, Trio & Orchestra Recordings from Denmark (1965-1969), (Elemental Music) it is only fitting that Miles Davis get his due.

Blackstone Legacy

Read "Blackstone Legacy" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan

When trumpeter Woody Shaw passed away in 1989, he left behind a wealth of amazing music, notwithstanding the realized sadness inherent in wondering what more he could have accomplished had he lived a longer life. Back in the mid '60s, Shaw was ubiquitous as a sideman recording iconic albums with the likes of Larry Young, Horace Silver, Chick Corea, Art Blakey, and McCoy Tyner. Despite common misconceptions, Shaw led his first date as a leader in December of 1965, which ...

Ron Carter: An Evening With Ron Carter, Richard Galliano (Live At The Theaterstübchen, Kassel)

Read "An Evening With Ron Carter, Richard Galliano (Live At The Theaterstübchen, Kassel)" reviewed by Richard J Salvucci

The odds are that most readers are not intimately familiar with jazz accordion.

The Franco-Italian Richard Galliano should probably hold contemporary pride of place among accordionists, although even he, remarkable a player that he is, will not move the needle much. That is not a good thing.Galliano ...

Nanny Assis: Rovanio

Read "Rovanio" reviewed by Chris May

The Brazilian-born, New York City-based singer and composer Nanny Assis is a big talent with a low profile. His elegant blend of jazz and Brazilian music puts one in mind of another similarly inclined and relatively little known stylist, the Berlin-based composer and producer Meeco, well loved in this parish. The work of both musicians is caressing, lyrical and lush; the vibe is mostly sunny but there are dark corners. Assis and Meeco have arrived at the ...

M. E. B.: That You Not Dare To Forget

Read "That You Not Dare To Forget" reviewed by Doug Collette

With all due respect to Lettuce's A Tribute to Miles Davis--Witches Stew (Self Produced, 2017) and the all-star ensemble dubbed Bitches Brew Revisited, M.E.B. (formerly known as Miles Electric Band) is an inordinately creative homage to Miles Davis. And given the continually experimental path The “Man With The Horn" chose to follow throughout his career, it is no doubt one of which he would approve. That You Not Dare To Forget is a slightly less than half-hour audio ...
