Talk Mode with Eamonn Lenihan—New Podcast Series Offers Three Jazz Interviews A Week

Darrell Katz and the JCA Orchestra: Rats Live on No Evil Star

Read "Rats Live on No Evil Star" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Listening to Darrell Katz's music, it boggles the mind that he is not celebrated as one of the best jazz composers-arrangers around. He has been creating ambitious and accessible works full of humor, social conscience and creativity for decades in the Boston area with the Jazz Composers Alliance Orchestra and other groups, yet you rarely hear ...

Read "Stefano Amerio: 20 anni di Artesuono" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Sono passati ormai diversi anni da quando abbiamo intervistato Stefano Amerio, tecnico del suono e patron di Artesuono, lo studio di registrazione più noto e affermato d'Italia e anche d'Europa, almeno per l'ambito jazzistico.

Glauco Venier, Michele Corcella: Mainerio!

Read "Mainerio!" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Già molti anni fa, era il 1996, Glauco Venier aveva usato l'espressione “l'insiùm" (che in friulano significa “il sogno") per dare il titolo a uno dei suoi primi dischi, in trio con Salvatore Maiore e Roberto Dani, nel quale prendeva spunto dalla cultura friulana per fare jazz.

Andrew Rathbun Large Ensemble: Atwood Suites

Read "Atwood Suites" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Andrew Rathbun is a Canadian saxophonist who has made a major musical statement here with this collection of suites, two of which are based on the poetry of author Margaret Atwood. Rathbun's writing shows the influence of another Canadian, Kenny Wheeler, in its lush sonority, the frequent gorgeous flugelhorn solos by Tim Hagans and the role ...

Welsh pianist and composer, Huw Warren, has been an important voice on the British jazz scene for many years. With a seemingly endless appetite for music, Warren has both been delving into Brazilian music with singer Maria Pia de Vito and played ethereal folk-inspired jazz music with another singer, June Tabor, in the trio Quercus.
