The Jazz Session: Oh, The Places You'll Go!

Read "The Jazz Session: Oh, The Places You'll Go!" reviewed by Jason Crane

It's been quite a year for The Jazz Session, my online jazz interview show: passing 300,000 downloads (and a few thousand away from 400,000 as I write this); forming a partnership with All About Jazz; adding more episodes per week; launching Facebook and Twitter pages; and just generally taking things up a level or two. I ...

Jo Lawry: Singing Sideman

Read "Jo Lawry: Singing Sideman" reviewed by Jason Crane

Australian vocalist Jo Lawry is quickly establishing herself among the top tier of current jazz vocalists. And she's doing it--at least some of the time--by being a sideman.

Lawry hails from Adelaide, Australia. She's been in the U.S. for several years now pursuing advanced degrees in jazz, but she hasn't spent all her time ...

David Sanborn: Sound and Silence

Read "David Sanborn: Sound and Silence" reviewed by Jason Crane

Saxophonist David Sanborn is one of the most recognizable instrumentalists in modern music. From his many television appearances--on his own show, Night Music, and with David Letterman's band--to his popular records and tours, Sanborn is among the few names in jazz that non-jazzheads can recognize.

In 2008, Sanborn released Here & Gone (Decca, 2008), ...

The Fly trio has just released its second CD--and its first for ECM--Sky & Country (2009). Bassist Larry Grenadier, drummer Jeff Ballard and saxophonist Mark Turner redefine the saxophone trio by making it an entirely democratic group, with compositional contributions from all three of its members.

Satoko Fujii: Four And More

Read "Satoko Fujii: Four And More" reviewed by Jason Crane

For pianist Satoko Fujii, 50 is the new 20.

That refers to her age, although you could almost believe it refers to the number of albums she's released in 2008 alone. Fujii appears on four records this year: a trio session called Trace A River (Libra, 2008); a quartet session with her band ma-do ...

Kenny Garrett: Back To The Future

Read "Kenny Garrett: Back To The Future" reviewed by Jason Crane

Detroit's Kenny Garrett is a restless man. Before he'd even released his 2006 Nonesuch album Beyond The Wall, he'd already moved on to a different band with a completely different repertoire. And it's always been like that for Garrett, who is constantly searching for new territory to mine and new corners of the world--both geographical and ...

Donny McCaslin: Trio Toolbox

Read "Donny McCaslin: Trio Toolbox" reviewed by Jason Crane

Saxophonist and composer Donny McCaslin won the 2008 Down Beat Rising Star Award, which is both gratifying and hilarious, considering that he's been on the scene for nearly 20 years. In recent years, though, McCaslin has appeared in a number of high-profile settings, including the Maria Schneider Orchestra (for which he received a Grammy nomination) and ...
