Generation Next: Four Voices From Seattle

Read "Generation Next: Four Voices From Seattle" reviewed by Paul Rauch

Each generation, an insidious notion arises, and is passed about the musical world that jazz music, the only uniquely American art form is somehow experiencing a slow, but certain death. Inevitably, this notion is set aside, and somehow projected forward in time, as a new generation of artists rise to the occasion, not only facilitating the ...

Tom Guarna: The Wishing Stones

Read "The Wishing Stones" reviewed by John Kelman

An unfortunate reality for too many musicians--even those who are well-known--is that most of their audiences are aware of but a portion of their true work...their fullest capabilities. Recordings only tell part of the story, since artists often tour with groups that are never documented. And even those tours, for those fortunate enough to experience them, ...

Five on Cellar Live

Read "Five on Cellar Live" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Patrice Williamson + Jon Wheatley: Comes Love - A Tribute To Ella Fitzgerald And Joe Pass

Read "Comes Love - A Tribute To Ella Fitzgerald And Joe Pass" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Centennial celebrations abound in 2017.

That list of giants forever changed the face of this music, but it's a list that's noticeably incomplete without the ...

Ian Faquini e Paula Santoro: Metal Na Madeira

Read "Metal Na Madeira" reviewed by Jim Trageser

For most of us in the United States, mentioning “Brazil" in a musical conversation connotes bossa nova or samba--which is a bit like describing all American music as blues or country.

Expertise in the music of Brazil is the work of a lifetime; much as with the United States, each region has its own ...
