Many jazz percussionists have dedicated their ...

Given his track record of eclecticism and ambition, ...

Jazz In Buenos Aires: Fresh Breezes From The South

Read "Jazz In Buenos Aires: Fresh Breezes From The South" reviewed by Mark Holston

Galería Apolo is one of many 1950s-style shopping arcades that flank Avenida Corrientes, the gaudy, pedestrian-packed “Broadway" of Argentina's cosmopolitan and bustling capital city. A dimly lit galería, it's the kind of one-stop-shopping destination where tiny specialty shops sell everything from comic books to costume jewelry and a visitor can get a watch repaired or satisfy ...
