We don't use that word when the jazz fusion is carried out by Tony Williams, Wayne Shorter, and in this case saxophonist Avram Fefer. His assemblage called Big Picture Holiday merges not just jazz ...

Adam Lane: Live In Ljubljana

Read "Live In Ljubljana" reviewed by Mark Corroto

In light of today's economic hardships, jazz orchestras or more precisely innovative jazz orchestras are really only little big bands. When you cannot travel with two dozen musicians, a leader must recruit players who can project a synergetic sound that appears greater than the sum of their parts. Masters of the little big bands include Taylor ...

There are lots of other ways too, but you get the idea. Avram Fefer's new trio recording Eliyahu (Not Two ...
