Marlene Rosenberg: MLK Convergence

Read "MLK Convergence" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

There's MLK, and then there's MLK.

Mike Allen is another in an apparently never-ending line of talented saxophonists who seem to emerge, from time to time, from the Canadian provinces to ensnare the hearts and earn the admiration not only of their fellow countrymen but jazz enthusiasts in other climes as well. On Just Like Magic, Allen leads a deft and experienced ...

Larry Fuller: Overjoyed

Read "Overjoyed" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Pianist Larry Fuller isn't exactly coy about the substance of this record. Exuberance is an obvious through-line as he works his way across a dozen charmers that frequently live up to the promise of the title in different ways.

Chuck Redd: Groove City

Read "Groove City" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The answer to that multi-pronged question, while no doubt slightly different for every musician, can be boiled down fairly easily.

Michael Dease: Reaching Out

Read "Reaching Out" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Somebody has to be the keeper of the flame, right? In jazz, an art form that has only recently passed the century mark, that responsibility has seemed to diminish in importance. It's not that music schools aren't churning out graduates versed in the traditional repertory, and post-modern players aren't constantly pushing the envelope of possibilities. It's ...
