Read "The Power of the Blues: Eric Clapton & Wynton Marsalis at Jazz at Lincoln Center" reviewed by David Miller

Eric Clapton, Wynton Marsalis, Taj Mahal
Rose Hall
New York, NY

Brad Mehldau / The St. Paul Chamber Orchestra

Chick Corea Trio
Highline Ballroom
New York City, USA
October 1, 2010

Well, that was unexpected. Imagine a Chick Corea trio show where the pianist is not the centerpiece of the performance. In fact, his piano plays as much rhythm as the bass and drums. A trio of equals. Then you would have some ...

Krantz Carlock Lefebvre
Highline Ballroom
New York, NY
April 24, 2010

Dave Holland Quintet
Birdland
New York, NY
April 20, 2010

The Dave Holland Quintet (DHQ) is one of those rarest of things in jazz--a working group. These days, due to a number of factors (cough$$cough), jazz musicians are spread very thin in terms of the number of projects they participate in. They jump fluidly from ...

Habiba Koité & Bamada
Highline Ballroom
New York, New York
March 16, 2010

Many shows at the Highline Ballroom are general admission, but the venue will change things up for certain shows by putting in tables and turning the hall into a large jazz club. They probably made the wrong decision by bringing out the ...

This article will not be about the music. The music was great, as is to be expected from the two bands on the bill at the Iridium on this night. Group 1: E.J. Strickland (leader), Marcus Strickland, Tim ...

North Mississippi Allstars
Highline Ballroom
New York, NY
February 26, 2010

As expected, in the best way possible. When my friend (a North Mississippi Allstars virgin) asked what we were in for as the Allstars took the Highline Ballroom stage on a snowy Friday evening in New York, I told her some specifics: drummer Cody ...

The Kandinsky Effect

The Kandinsky Effect

SNP Records
2010



What do you get when you combine an American saxophonist, a self-proclaimed “total gringo" bassist and a French drummer, playing progressive jazz in Europe? There's no one-size-fits-all answer. But The Kandinsky Effect, composed of Warren Walker (saxophone), Gael Petrina (acoustic and ...
