Lolly Allen: Coming Home

Read "Coming Home" reviewed by Jack Bowers

There was a time, and it wasn't that long ago, when women in jazz—apart from singers and the occasional pianist—were seen by many observers as unsolicited interlopers whose impact in what was essentially a male bastion could be no more than minimal at best. Needless to say that is no longer the case, as women's voices ...

Atlanta Jazz Festival 2019

Read "Atlanta Jazz Festival 2019" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Atlanta Jazz Festival Atlanta, GA May 25-26, 2019 Last year the festival operated under the threat of rain all weekend. This year's 42nd edition saw record-tying high temperatures: 93 and 94 degrees Fahrenheit (ten degrees above the historical averages). No doubt it is a coincidence that the programming was cooler than last ...

Conrado Paulino

Style "...is like an effortless blend of Joe Pass and Baden Powell" [Fabio Carrilho, Violão PRO Magazine, Brazil]
The style of guitarist, composer and arranger Conrado Paulino is an original fusion of three major musical schools. The first one embraces the repertoire of Brazilian music, a universe from which his creative basis takes its shape.
The second one reveals itself in a jazzy influence that becomes conspicuous in its harmonically modern concept and its ample room for improvisation on his arrangements.
The last one is the utilization of classical guitar techniques, notably in his use of arpeggios and counter-melodies

Aaron Goldberg: At the Edge of the World

Read "At the Edge of the World" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

A quattro anni di distanza dall'album The Now Aaron Goldberg presenta un sorprendente piano trio, sostituendo il lungo sodalizio col contrabbassista Reuben Rogers e il batterista Eric Harland.

The Scott Hamilton Trio: Live at Pyatt Hall

Read "Live at Pyatt Hall" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Even though the Swing Era vanished long ago into the mists of time, likely never to return, it continues to have its champions, especially on the tenor saxophone: masters such as Harry Allen, Ken Peplowski, Grant Stewart, Cory Weeds (who owns the Cellar Live label and produced this splendid album) and last but by no means ...

Anat Cohen's Brazilian Bonanza: Outra Coisa and Rosa Dos Ventos

Read "Anat Cohen's Brazilian Bonanza: Outra Coisa and Rosa Dos Ventos" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

It's not exactly a secret that Anat Cohen is smitten with the music of Brazil. Her clarinet is a key voice on the Choro Ensemble's albums, she's peppered her own dates with the work of Milton Nascimento, Chico Buarque, Luiz Bonfa, and Hermeto Pascoal, and she made the rounds in New York clubs--and on a pair ...

Paul Winter Sextet: Count Me In

Read "Paul Winter Sextet: Count Me In" reviewed by Duncan Heining

The Paul Winter Sextet might just be one of the best early sixties groups you never heard. Their story, and that of their leader and altoist Paul Winter's, is certainly one of the most remarkable in jazz. Had some director made a film of the Sextet's short life, jazz buffs would have scoffed at the conceit. ...

Doug MacDonald: Just for Fun

Read "Just for Fun" reviewed by Jack Bowers

While there are no household names on guitarist Doug MacDonald's new 2-CD set, Just for Fun (alto saxophonist Lanny Morgan or perhaps drummer Roy McCurdy may come closest), the sidemen he has chosen for a lively concert date billed as a “jazz marathon" are more than likely among the more accomplished jazz musicians you've seldom or ...
