Mark Walker: You Get What You Give

Read "You Get What You Give" reviewed by Ljubinko Zivkovic

Nicholl and Farquharson: Della by Moonlight

Read "Della by Moonlight" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Keyboardist Matthew Nicholl and bassist Michael Farquharson assemble an adult contemporary jazz suite on Della by Moonlight. To be clear, this is not smooth jazz, and while smooth jazz has its charms--accessibility and listening ease being two of them--Nicholl and Farquharson's music requires a little more than just passive listening. The additional attention is more than ...

Tim Miller
Trio Vol. 2
Avenir Records
2008

Very few guitarists have digested, head-on, the daunting influence of Alan Holdsworth, and then assimilated it into their own playing. Fewer still have combined Holdsworth's no-longer-futuristic linearity with the science of melodic chord permutation, as promulgated by the likes of George Van ...
