Read "Hakos Trios" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

The self-titled debut from the Spain-based Hakos Trios is a cross-continental outing from diverse European and Asian influences. Working with straight-forward pentatonic scales as well as Baltic and Eastern inspirations, the resulting pieces take shape as unfamiliar but accessible. Billed as a double-trio, the Bulgarian, Serbian and Spanish musicians maintain a fixed rhythm section and trade ...

Read "Organ Grinder Swing–Adrienne Fenemor, Little Charlie, Matthew Kaminski, Music Soup, King Louie & LaRhonda Steele" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

There are certain things that evoke memory more than smells and sound. Unfiltered Lucky Strike cigarettes, just lit, make me think of my dad's office in the 1960s.
