Jazz & Soundtracks

Read "Jazz & Soundtracks" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

Jazz has had a very close relationship with cinema and TV. To be perfectly frank in this relationship cinema and TV have not as generous as jazz has been towards cinema.

Read "The Complete Jan Akkerman: Focusing on a Life's Work" reviewed by John Kelman

Still, despite garnering major in-country recognition, ...

Paul Winter Sextet: Count Me In

Read "Paul Winter Sextet: Count Me In" reviewed by Duncan Heining

The Paul Winter Sextet might just be one of the best early sixties groups you never heard. Their story, and that of their leader and altoist Paul Winter's, is certainly one of the most remarkable in jazz. Had some director made a film of the Sextet's short life, jazz buffs would have scoffed at the conceit. ...

It was also the debut of Denny Zeitlin, a Bay Area psychiatrist whose singularly imaginative jazz moonlighting has resulted in numerous fearless disks over the past five decades.

Jeremy Steig: Flute Fever

Read "Flute Fever" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Flute Fever, the 1963 Columbia Records debut by flutist Jeremy Steig, has somehow, until now, avoided release on CD. Thanks to reissue producer Jonathan Horwich, Steig's beautifully remastered and packaged freshman recording is now available. And it's not only Steig's premier as a recording artist, it's also a recording first for pianist Denny Zeitlin, on a ...
