Read "Our Work Is Never Done" reviewed by Bridget A. Arnwine

Wayne Wallace Latin Jazz Quintet: To Hear From There

Read "To Hear From There" reviewed by Bridget A. Arnwine

Trombonist/composer Wayne Wallace and his music could probably be characterized by any number of clichéd phrases, but why use a cliché when the truth will do. The truth is that Wayne Wallace's To Hear From There is a far better record than its Grammy-nominated predecessor, ¡Bien Bien! (Patois, 2009), and that's saying a lot. Wallace's greatest ...

Tom Graf: Grafitti

Read "Grafitti" reviewed by Bridget A. Arnwine

There's a familiarity to the songs on composer Tom Graf's Grafitti, that makes the disc feel like an old favorite even though it goes from funk and cha-cha to bop and straight-ahead jazz. There's such an air of familiarity, in fact, that if Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, and John Coltrane could hear Grafitti in heaven, they ...

Nancy Harms: In the Indigo

Read "In the Indigo" reviewed by Bridget A. Arnwine

Jazz vocalist Nancy Harms presents In the Indigo, a sultry yet intelligent offering of old standards, original material, and the occasional pop cover. She sings like a woman who's sure of herself.

Dan Aran: Breathing

Read "Breathing" reviewed by Bridget A. Arnwine

When a CD is released, one of its most revealing aspects--and that of the artist's mindset during the recording process--is the title that has been assigned. With a title like Breathing, there are several things that can be presupposed: first, maybe the artist recorded the album in a stiflingly hot space and the title was chosen ...

Chicago Jazz Philharmonic: Collective Creativity

Read "Collective Creativity" reviewed by Bridget A. Arnwine

"Is it classical or is it jazz?" That is the question found on the Chicago Jazz Philharmonic's (CJP) website; a question that is asked and followed with the statement “you decide," as if the answer were something that only a listener should determine. Listening to the CJP's debut, Collective Creativity, the decision is not an easy ...
