Sax Gordon: In the Wee Small Hours

Read "In the Wee Small Hours" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Le esibizioni spettacolari da honker anni '40 lo hanno reso famoso al pubblico del blues ma gli amanti del jazz hanno gusti raffinati e non gli prestano molta attenzione.

Charles Brown: Blues And Other Love Songs

Read "Blues And Other Love Songs" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Labeled as a blues singer, pianist Charles Brown walks the line between jazz, blues and a long lost genre, popular music.

During the forties and fifties, singing R&B didn’t mean rap nor did it ...
