Camila Meza: Ámbar

Read "Ámbar" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

After finally stepping into the limelight with 2016's Traces (Sunnyside Records)--the record on which Camila Meza impressively solidified her very own character and place as a musician and composer--the Chilean singer / guitarist returns with an entirely different cast of musicians that has grown to orchestral proportions, and a new batch of intriguing tunes that consist ...

Kind Folk: Why Not

Read "Why Not" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Back in 2014, trumpeter John Raymond, alto saxophonist Alex LoRe, bassist Noam Wiesenberg, and drummer Colin Stranahan gathered in a tiny apartment in Brooklyn to test out their chemistry and let the music flow.

Daniel Meron: Sky Begins

Read "Sky Begins" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Though pianist / composer Daniel Meron gets top billing on Sky Begins, it's vocalist Maia Karo who steals the show here. Yes, Sky Begins is a vocal jazz album. But it's a quite striking one. Meron's tunes are by no means typical jazz tunes, and Karo isn't a typical jazz singer. Though the album is all-acoustic ...

Twins Jazz

In recent years, the guitar trio--with bass and drums--has reached mythic status. Once an obscure instrumentation, the setting has been elevated to new heights by young guitarists seeking the kind of interplay for which the piano ...
