David L. Harris: Blues I Felt

Read "Blues I Felt" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The blues isn't merely a form or genre. It's an emotional response, a personal internalization of an idea that invites extemporization in its reflection.

No two people feel, sing, or play the blues exactly the ...

Read "Hentoff helped pave way for jazz journalism’s acceptance" reviewed by Jim Trageser

Nat Hentoff's passing last week left me feeling, well, old. Whenever we lose a mentor--a grandparent, a teacher, someone who encouraged us--it's a reminder of our own mortality, that we are, in the parlance of football coaches, the next ones up.

I don't feel anywhere near to ready or worthy or capable of assuming ...

Jazz for President - Le suite di Delfeayo Marsalis e Ted Nash

Read "Jazz for President - Le suite di Delfeayo Marsalis e Ted Nash" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Gli anni sessanta sono lontani e con essi la controversia su jazz e politica. Com'è noto, la musica è un'arte asemantica e i musicisti non possono trasmettere significati (in questo caso politici) con il linguaggio delle note. Però gli artisti esprimono eventuali scelte ideologiche iscrivendo la loro musica in un quadro semantico più generale, fatto di ...

In Jazz We Trust: On The Politically Inspired Work Of Delfeayo Marsalis and Ted Nash

Read "In Jazz We Trust: On The Politically Inspired Work Of Delfeayo Marsalis and Ted Nash" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The current state of American politics--a veritable cesspool that makes reality television seem sane by comparison--leaves little to feel good about. Moral compasses are skewed, elected officials bicker like fractious toddlers, and candidates ranging from the lunatic sybarite variety to the bumptiously insincere seek the highest office in the land with strong approval from the loud ...

Mark Lomax Trio: Isis and Osiris

Read "Isis and Osiris" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Record collectors and DJs are fond of the term “spiritual jazz." Like most colloquialisms, its meaning is nebulous and vague; more emotional than factual, more indicative of a feeling that the music projects, as opposed to a distinct lineage or coterie of musicians.
