Larry Vuckovich: High Wall: A Real Life Film Noir

Read "High Wall: A Real Life Film Noir" reviewed by Woodrow Wilkins

Sequels are all too common in movies--so much so that rather than have distinctive titles, many simply add a sequential number to the original name. In music, however, a thematic sequel is rare. But the Larry Vuckovich Trio attempts to capitalize on the acclaimed Street Scene (Tetrachord, 2006) with High Wall: Real Life Film Noir.

Josh Workman: Jumpin' at the Border

Read "Jumpin' at the Border" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Guitarist Josh Workman's Jumpin' at the Border swings into that rare “I don't get enough of..." category. I don't get enough of his gypsy style with the Hot Club of San Francisco ("Kali Sara"); I don't get enough of his boppin' (Sippin' at Bell's); I don't get enough of Kim Nalley's bluesy and seductive vocals ("I ...

Josh Workman: Jumpin' At the Border

Read "Jumpin' At the Border" reviewed by Mark F. Turner

The music recalls the greats--Django, Bandolim, Dizzy, Ella, Pass, Vaughan, Ellington, Bird, and others. While it might ...
