Read "2013: The Year In Jazz" reviewed by Ken Franckling

The West Coast now has a jazz edifice of its own with strong roots, International Jazz Day grew in scope during year two, jazz made its mark on (and off) Broadway, and the number of musicians lost during the year was large and painful. Here's a look at significant happenings across the jazz world over the ...


Kat Gang: Kat Gang

Read "Kat Gang" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Vocalist Kat Gang must have been thinking of the old show business adage, “always leave them wanting more," when she conceived of and recorded this four-song EP; this sub-sixteen-minute musical appetizer whets the appetite, as Gang inhabits each song with a world-wise voice and delivery, and certainly leaves room for a larger portion to fill the ...


2012 Yuletide Offerings

Read "2012 Yuletide Offerings" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

While thoughts of Christmas don't enter many a consumer's mind until Black Friday comes, musicians turn their eyes toward the last page of the calendar a bit earlier. Artists and labels need to conceive of, put together, record, release and market their holiday-themed albums early, so they can make their way into eager listener's stockings before ...

Hilary Kole: You Are There

Read "You Are There" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Vocalist Hilary Kole is more than a mere interpreter of songs.

Danielle Eva: Road And Moon

Read "Road And Moon" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

What do you get when you mix one part Lizz Wright, one part Alyssa Graham and a dash of Chiara Civello? The answer is vocalist Danielle Eva. Eva's music could be characterized as roots-infused jazz with a pop spin on the production, but plenty of other influences seep into the mix. A large cast of musicians ...

She sings clear and cleanly, with a sure tone and an attractive sound. She's done cabaret and her voice is perfectly suited for it. But she sings with small jazz groups ...
