Jason Stein Quartet: Lucille

Read "Lucille" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Jason Stein continues to curve a niche in the jazz world, but it's not what you might assume. Listeners straightaway assume that he is an idiosyncratic outlier because his sole instrument is the bass clarinet. We've grown accustomed to saxophonists like Eric Dolphy and David Murray doubling on the bass clarinet. Stein's constancy to this one ...

Carmen Rothwell: The Art of Intuition

Read "Carmen Rothwell: The Art of Intuition" reviewed by Paul Rauch

Seattle, a city synonymous with alternative rock, has long sustained a provincial jazz culture, without a signature sound, but with an openness to innovative, progressive invention. To outside jazz partisans, the city is known for phenomenal high school talent that usually flies the coop, heading east for conservatory training and to pursue professional ambitions.

Albert Ayler Quartet: Copenhagen Live 1964

Read "Copenhagen Live 1964" reviewed by Mark Corroto

It's almost as if the phenomenon that was saxophonist Albert Ayler was just a dream. Nearly fifty years after his death, listeners (and musicians, for that matter) are still catching up to him, and realizing his gift. His life, like that of Charlie Parker, ended at age 34. But where Parker (an originator of bebop) developed ...

Read "Arthur Blythe, 1940-2017: A Remembrance" reviewed by Todd S. Jenkins

A poet, a muezzin, an angry activist, a lamenting lover: Blythe conjured a broad array of sonic images through his nonpareil approach to music. The beloved altoist, who had battled Parkinson's disease for the past ...
