Anthony Braxton: Creative Orchestra (Koln) 1978

Read "Creative Orchestra (Koln) 1978" reviewed by Jeff Stockton

Jazz is often viewed as a progressive art form, one that by its very nature is constantly changing and reinventing itself. The paradox is that change isn't always what the audience wants to hear, so it frequently takes awhile simply to catch up. Such seems to be the case with the music of Anthony Braxton, one ...

Art Pepper: Unreleased Art Volume 4: The Art History Project

Read "Unreleased Art Volume 4: The Art History Project" reviewed by Jeff Stockton

In her liner notes to Volume IV of the Art History Project, Art Pepper's widow describes him as a self-hating, alcoholic sex addict who turned to heroin in order to suppress these tendencies. Second only to Charlie Parker in the DownBeat polls of the day, nobody played alto saxophone as smooth and cool as Art Pepper. ...

Wayne Shorter may look 20 years younger than 76, but he is quite simply one of the last giants, every bit as influential and artistically significant as Sonny Rollins, perhaps second only to John Coltrane when one considers ...

About Us continues in that vein, but as the title states, its focus is more on ...

Rob Brown Trio: Live at Firehouse 12

Read "Live at Firehouse 12" reviewed by Jeff Stockton

He has been ...
