Delfeayo Marsalis: Kalamazoo

Read "Kalamazoo" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

How is it that we haven't been gifted a live album from trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis before? He's been such an important part of the fabric of this music, whether producing works of lasting significance for other jazz greats in the studio, sharing space with his famous family, or leading his Uptown Orchestra through a rousing set ...

B.J. Jansen: Common Ground

Read "Common Ground" reviewed by Matthew Aquiline

Cincinnati-born baritone saxophonist B.J. Jansen's tenth album is titled Common Ground for good reason: his sextet consists of NEA Jazz Master trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis, drummer Ralph Peterson, trumpeter Duane Eubanks, pianist Zaccai Curtis, and bassist Dezron Douglas--all of whom revel in improvisation. His group's shared affinity for jazz in the straight-ahead vein compelled Jansen to employ ...

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. While there's a specific progression and certain stylistic considerations that mark music as such, there's undeniable variety within the fixed aspects. No two people feel, sing, or play the blues exactly the ...

Hentoff helped pave way for jazz journalism’s acceptance

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

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 ...

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 ...
