Marcus Miller: America's AmBASSadoor

Read "Marcus Miller: America's AmBASSadoor" reviewed by Jim Worsley

Marcus Miller is most often described as a jazz, funk, soul, fusion, and R&B bassist. As much as that is accurate, it is a description that falls well short of the mark. Miller is a high-end musical sponge who manages to incorporate today's cultures and rhythms into his compositions, layered within the framework of sound he ...

Beloved of The Sky

Read "Beloved of The Sky" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan

Kenny Barron: Concentric Circles

Read "Concentric Circles" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Hard to believe that, as Kenny Barron turns 75, Concentric Circles is his Blue Note debut, one that is as muscular, fleet, and entertaining as any debut by any man two-thirds his age.

Trust Barron's deeply-versed quintet to swing like a big band plus, and “DPW" leaps out at you with a jumping, bop ...
