Read "Jerome Wilson's Best Releases Of 2018" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

It may be unwieldy to keep a large jazz ensemble together for economic reasons but this year was still full of outstanding big band recordings, whether done through commissions, arrangers working with established orchestras or even actual working ensembles. Several of the releases on my list are examples of that. Also this year had the usual ...

Read "Dan Bilawsky's Best Releases of 2018" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Every little bit of the year 2018 will soon take form as memory--first recent, then distant--but the fine music gifted to us in those twelve months will be forever present, living on in ears, hearts and minds. I had the pleasure of hearing north of 400 albums this past year, and I had the privilege of ...

Kate McGarry: The Subject Tonight Is Love

Read "The Subject Tonight Is Love" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Kate McGarry/Keith Ganz/Gary Versace: The Subject Tonight Is Love

Read "The Subject Tonight Is Love" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The ancient Greeks spoke of love's many forms, codifying and distilling the essence of every one in detailed thought and language. Each of those documented variants rightly differs from the others, yet the keen mind can certainly discern that all of them basically stem from the same roots: connectivity and understanding. In something of a musical ...

Dan Bilawsky's Best Releases of 2014

Read "Dan Bilawsky's Best Releases of 2014" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

How does an album end up on this list? It really comes down to two things: strength on impact and staying power. Some records hit hard from the start, ultimately losing power with play after play. Other records come on gently, growing on the ear and the mind over time. But it's the truly rare one ...

All About Jazz colleague Dan Bilawsky indulges no hyperbole when he describes vocalist Kate McGarry or Genevieve and Ferdinand: Live: “There is no greater beacon of sincerity, honesty and emotional purity than Kate McGarry...Genevieve & Ferdinand doesn't contain bold proclamations or daring musical acts, but it's filled with some of the most genuine music that anybody ...

Kate McGarry and Keith Ganz: Genevieve & Ferdinand - Live

Read "Genevieve & Ferdinand - Live" reviewed by Dr. Judith Schlesinger

Kate McGarry has always defied easy classification. She's a jazz singer, and a folk singer too; she could also be filed under mainstream pop, but then, what's all that esoteric Brazilian music doing in her repertoire?
