Sonny Rollins: Holding the Stage: Road Shows Vol. 4

Read "Holding the Stage: Road Shows Vol. 4" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

At this point in his long and storied career, tenor saxman Sonny Rollins is probably incapable of releasing genuinely bad music (which isn't as obvious a statement as it may seem if, for example, you've tried to listen to Bob Dylan's Shadows in the Night Sinatra homage). Still, some sets are better than others, and Sonny ...

2016

Simultaneously dedicated to 20th century classical composer Olivier Messiaen and legendary rap and hip-hop producer J Dilla, Flam! Blam! Pan-Asian Microjam! is a musical adventurer's dream and a purist's nightmare. But anything more conventional from conceptualist, composer and guitarist ...

Krakauer's Ancestral Groove: Checkpoint

Read "Checkpoint" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Clarinetist David Krakauer has been exploring his Eastern European Jewish background through music for the past quarter century.

Monday Recommendation: The Jaki Byard Project

Monday Recommendation: The Jaki Byard Project

The Jaki Byard Project, Inch By Inch, Yard Byard (GM Recordings) An album in tribute to a prodigious pianist—without a pianist; it must have seemed a good idea when flutist Jamie Baum conceived it. And it was. Ms. Baum, drummer George Schuller and guitarist Jerome Harris studied with Byard at the New England Conservatory. He died in ...

Peter Davenport: Bolide

Read "Bolide" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Peter Davenport's Bolide is the sort of album that often flies completely under the radar. It's what record collectors call a private issue; completely self-produced, self-distributed and available on a very small scale; generally only through the artist. Nevertheless, Bolide is a worthwhile listening experience. While not a familiar name to me prior to hearing this ...
