Read "Live: SFJAZZ Center 2016 - Music of Miles Davis & Original Compositions" reviewed by John Kelman

SFJAZZ Collective: Remembering Miles

Read "SFJAZZ Collective: Remembering Miles" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke

The SFJAZZ Collective has been operating since 2004. In the beginning, it may have seemed to some as just another all-star collection of musicians who strut their stuff for a while, then go about their own business. It has shown over time it is much different.

Quinsin Nachoff: Flux

Read "Flux" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Saxophonist Quinsin Nachoff sounds right at home on Mythology Records--saxophonist/producer/provocateur David Binney's label. Everything on Mythology has a intensity and modernity, a brashness and in-your-face confidence of delivery, whether it's Binney as the leader, or on sets headed up by pianists John Escreet or Edward Simon, or Quinsin Nachoff.

Flux is Nachoff's debut on ...
