The intent listening and bold responses displayed during saxophonist Lotte Anker's January show at The Stone typify ...

Pierre Dørge has what seems like a magical ability - he can re-imagine and rethink the way that music is voiced thus creating entire new worlds out of worlds we think we know. He can take an Ellington standard or ...
