Ron Miles: The Best Of The Denver Jazz Doyen

Read "Ron Miles: The Best Of The Denver Jazz Doyen" reviewed by Ian Patterson


Ron Miles left the planet all too soon, but the Denver cornetist and trumpeter has left a lasting mark, both in terms of the music he made and in the people whose lives he touched. This list, a guide to ten of Miles' most significant recordings as both leader and as a sideman, reflects his playing and writing strengths.

Ron Miles: Custodian of Beauty, Part 1

Read "Ron Miles: Custodian of Beauty, Part 1" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

Listeners have come to expect something a little different from ...

The group drew in top jazz artists to help craft their albums—saxophonists Wayne Shorter and Tom Scott, guitarists Larry Carlton and Lee Ritenour, drummers Steve ...
