A Professional Jazz Musician? Really? What's That?

Read "A Professional Jazz Musician? Really? What's That?" reviewed by Peter Rubie

I've been around as a musician long enough to understand when a promoter or booker ghosts me. “Yeah, sure, send me an email," they say in that sincere way that sounds like someone saying, “Of course I love you" just to shut you up. It comes with the territory, and a musician has to be Zen ...

Rachelle Garniez: Swimming Pool Blue

Read "Swimming Pool Blue" reviewed by Luca Muchetti

Tutto vero, non ci nascondiamo dietro un dito: per molti ascoltare la Rachelle Garniez di questo sobrissimo e super-elegante Swimming Pool Blue, potrà sembrare una operazione di pura nostalgia per i bei tempi andati del jazz cantato al femminile, un album nato dalla e per la voglia di regalarsi ancora una volta una seduta discreta e ...

The Humanity Quartet: Humanity

Read "Humanity" reviewed by Dr. Judith Schlesinger

This release is from four veteran, first-call jazz instrumentalists who are all concerned about the worldwide loss of humanity (hence, the title of both the quartet and the CD), and wanted to demonstrate what can happen when grown-ups truly connect. As co-producer, bassist, and composer Sean Smith explains in his articulate and passionate liners, ..."the Humanity ...

The Humanity Quartet: Humanity

Read "Humanity" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Music with a message? With a name like the Humanity Quartet and a CD titled Humanity, one might certainly presume no less. Music designed to help save the world from itself?

Si trattava di una scelta di cinque brani, elaborati con il criterio della lunga divagazione e riflessione geniale. Inoltre, il discorso era stato affrontato ...

David Lyttle: Leading Jazz Into The Hinterlands

Read "David Lyttle: Leading Jazz Into The Hinterlands" reviewed by Ian Patterson

There was a time when jazz groups would zig-zag all over the country, by train, in customized buses or in cars, playing date after date in towns big and small. Tours that kept a band on the road for months at a time were once the norm for many jazz outfits--the bread and butter of countless ...
