Jazz From Around The World: Latin America and the Caribbean

Read "Jazz From Around The World: Latin America and the Caribbean" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

The focus of the second installment of Jazz from Around the World is Latin America and the Caribbean.

Read "Dizzy Reece: Star Bright – 1959" reviewed by Marc Davis

In the 1950s and '60s, there were two jazz trumpeters named Dizzy. One was famous. This is the other guy. Dizzy Reece is a pretty obscure name, even among Blue Note fans. He was a young hard bop trumpeter from Jamaica who spent most of the 1950s playing in Europe, recorded four very good ...

Duke Jordan: Flight to Jordan - 1960

Read "Duke Jordan: Flight to Jordan - 1960" reviewed by Marc Davis

If this isn't a perfect hard bop record, it comes awfully close. And coming from an artist who is virtually forgotten, it's all the sweeter. Duke Jordan was an A-list pianist who was there at the birth of bebop. He was part of Charlie Parker's classic quintet in 1947. So why don't we know ...

Jazz Takes To The High Seas

Read "Jazz Takes To The High Seas" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Explorers, of the musical and non-musical variety, always seem to be fascinated by the bountiful bodies of water that cover the earth.
