Gary McFarland: The In Sound & Soft Samba

Read "The In Sound & Soft Samba" reviewed by Rob Caldwell

Arranger, vibraphonist and singer Gary McFarland is regarded as one of the major purveyors of orchestral jazz--a type of jazz which had its heyday in the 1960s, but which is not heard as much anymore.

Il percorso musicale raccoglie due famosi temi della contestazione giovanile degli anni sessanta («The Times They ...

In 2014 Tommy Igoe was voted the Worlds #1 Jazz Drummer in a Modern Drummers Readers Poll. Once you see him in action, you'll know why. Backed by his nine piece Birdland All-Star Band Igoe more than lives up to his reputation. Think of Buddy Rich on steroids. Steely Dan, the Beatles, Snarky Puppy, Latin, David ...
