Tom Guarna: The Wishing Stones

Read "The Wishing Stones" reviewed by John Kelman

An unfortunate reality for too many musicians--even those who are well-known--is that most of their audiences are aware of but a portion of their true work...their fullest capabilities. Recordings only tell part of the story, since artists often tour with groups that are never documented. And even those tours, for those fortunate enough to experience them, ...

Blaque Dynamite: Killing Bugs

Read "Killing Bugs" reviewed by Kevin Press

As people age, it's not uncommon to commemorate birthday milestones--specifically, those marking the passing of decades--with special celebrations, ranging from parties to vacations. In most cases, however, these festivities are private events, restricted to family and friends.

Not Chick Corea.
