Read "David Liebman & Jeff Coffin, Acamar Trio & More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Danish percussionist and drummer Marilyn Mazur has worked with some of the greats--Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Gil Evans, Jan Garbarek--but her latest project is unlike anything previously.

Read "James Brandon Lewis, Mick Rossi and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Finding your own path is one thing, staying on it is another. This show features several musicians who are doing that today. Bassist Moppa Elliott's urge to challenge the idiom is not confined to his occasionally controversial Mostly Other People Do The Killing. His new recording, Jazz Band/Rock Band/Dance Band, presents three distinctly different bands and ...

James Brandon Lewis: An Unruly Manifesto

Read "An Unruly Manifesto" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Il meglio del 2018 secondo Vincenzo Roggero

Read "Il meglio del 2018 secondo Vincenzo Roggero" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Anche quest'anno tanti gli ascolti, tante le proposte interessanti, e come al solito, difficile sintetizzare il meglio in dodici dischi. Non necessariamente i migliori ma quelli che, in un modo o nell'altro, hanno lasciato un segno.
