Read "Tyshawn Sorey: Composite Reality" reviewed by Daniel Lehner

Though Tyshawn Sorey's Oblique-I (Pi Recordings, 2011) is his most recent release to date, it's actually comprised of some of the percussionist/composer's earliest work.

Jeff Hackworth: Night Owl

Read "Night Owl" reviewed by Edward Blanco

New York saxophonist Jeff Hackworth--who performs in the style of jazz greats like Gene Ammons, David “Fathead" Newman and Stanley Turrentine--keeps the tradition alive on Night Owl.
