Mareike Wiening: Metropolis Paradise

Read "Metropolis Paradise" reviewed by Don Phipps

Composer-drummer Mareike Wiening's album, Metropolis Paradise, is a homage to her six-year residency in New York. And what a special time it must have been--judging from the music--a warm, sunny collection of shimmering and breezy beauty. Wiening wrote all the compositions, and they reflect what might be a perfect day sitting in Central Park under a ...

Harold Danko: His Own Sound, His Own Time

Read "Harold Danko: His Own Sound, His Own Time" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

The famous sculptor, Henry Moore, hit the nail on the head when he said: “there's no retirement for an artist, it's your way of living so there's no end to it."

Niculin Janett Quartet: Complexes

Read "Complexes" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Despite the connotations of its title, the sound of Complexes doesn't suggest anything excessively technical (or mental issues either, for that matter).

Read "Culture Clubs: A History of the U.S. Jazz Clubs, Part II: New York" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Jazz didn't abandon jny: Chicago but its further development only began to take on a distinct personality in the 1960s. By the late 1920s, the next phase of the jazz scene had shifted from Chicago to New York though, initially, there was no red carpet rolled out. As jazz bands made their way to New York ...
