Adam Shulman Sextet: Full Tilt

Read "Full Tilt" reviewed by Jack Bowers

In music, as in life, not every new voice is worth hearing. Here's one that is.

Hampton Hawes: All Night

Hampton Hawes: All Night

I've never been a huge fan of pianist Hampton Hawes. His keyboard assault on many leadership trio albums are frantic and more concerned with speed and percussive impact than harnessed intensity. The result is a jarring listen followed by a headache. Dazzling jazz pianists who skillfully held their emotional horses include Art Tatum, Bud Powell, Al ...
