Billy Childs: Rebirth

Read "Rebirth" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

It's been a while since we've heard pianist Billy Childs really dig in. While he certainly hasn't been dormant, reaching tremendous artistic heights in semi-recent times with a pair of highly refined chamber jazz explorations and a much-lauded tribute to Laura Nyro, the Childs of yore--the man that would throw down the gauntlet night after night ...

Glauco Lima: Once Upon A Time

Read "Once Upon A Time" reviewed by Geannine Reid

Brazil, perhaps more than any other country, has embraced jazz, the sound of 1950s jazz or the cool school as some like to call it, and the music world has benefited from this love affair.

Read "Untranslatable" reviewed by Ian Patterson

With his impressive debut Every Eight Seconds (Self Produced, 2012) garnering universally positive reviews, Australian-born, New York-based pianist Matthew Sheens returns with an even meatier, juicier follow-up. Every Eight Seconds introduced an original composer, one whose melodic and rhythmic ideas championed narrative over virtuosity. There's perhaps more of Sheens the Downbeat poll-winning pianist this time out ...
