Niculin Janett Quartet (feat. Rich Perry): No Parking Any Time

Read "No Parking Any Time" reviewed by Matthew Aquiline

Niculin Janett Quartet Featuring Rich Perry: No Parking Any Time

Read "No Parking Any Time" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Arranger/conductor Gunther Schuller coined, in 1957, the term “Third Stream," to describe a musical synthesis of jazz and classical music. Early examples of this sound include Miles Davis/Gil Evans' Sketches of Spain (Columbia Records, 1961), saxophonist Stan Getz' Focus (Verve Records, 1961), and the Dizzy Gillespie/J.J. Johnson collaboration, the oddly overlooked and excellent Perceptions (Verve Records, ...

This is a spotlight on drums...a pretty big spotlight. Edwin G. Hamilton
The Whole World Must Change

It's hard enough to find a drummer, much less one who sings. There is Les DeMerle, and he is fine, but, the drummer/singer is a pretty hard chair to fill, ...
