Read "Joe Frazier Round 3 (CD Single)" reviewed by John Kelman

In the world of music, there are plenty of “could have beens," but far fewer “should have beens." Count Jeff Berlin amongst the latter.

Jay Leonhart: Don't You Wish?

Read "Don't You Wish?" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

Jay Leonhart has been active as a jazz bassist from the 1960s, and since 1983's Salamander Pie (Digital Music Productions, 1990), he has, from time to time, headlined records as that rara avis, the singer-songwriter who plays acoustic bass rather than acoustic guitar.
