Dennis Gonzalez: Ts'iibil Chaaltun

Read "Ts'iibil Chaaltun" reviewed by Don Phipps

Dennis Gonzalez's trio, Ataraxia is comprised of trumpet (Gonzalez), bass (Drew Phelps), and percussion (Jagath Lakpriya), a mix of instruments that on the surface would alone suggest interesting music.

The Young Mothers: A Mothers Work Is Never Done

Read "A Mothers Work Is Never Done" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Ingebrigt Håker Flaten reminds us that jazz is the musical equivalent of a dark star, a musical black hole, absorbing all musical energy and classifications. The Norwegian-born bassist-turned Austin, TX resident assembled a multi-genre sextet under the uncategorizable name The Young Mothers.
