Read "Jazz From Around the World: Asia" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

John Scofield: Peaceful Pursuits

Read "John Scofield: Peaceful Pursuits" reviewed by John Kelman

Sometimes a recording comes together easily, with a minimum of muss or fuss. Other times, life seems to conspire against it, but that doesn't necessarily mean it doesn't get done, or that it suffers as a result. Sometimes, in fact, it can make the end result even better.
