La Miller vanta un curriculum di tutto rispetto, sia in ambito pop (le sue collaborazioni più ...

Allison Miller: Boom Tic Boom

Read "Boom Tic Boom" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Just say yes to records led by drummers. Why? Because drummers may rarely be the leaders or composers, but they're always the soul of any good recording.

Victor Prieto: Persistencia

Read "Persistencia" reviewed by William Grim

Spanish-born jazz accordionist Victor Prieto is the most exciting such player to come on the scene since Eddie Monteiro.
