John Dikeman And The Origin Of The Species

Read "John Dikeman And The Origin Of The Species" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Like early music by The Stooges, Dikeman's sound makes reference to the music of both Albert Ayler and Pharoah Sanders. It's a shame ...

Pittsburgh Jazz: A Brief History

Read "Pittsburgh Jazz: A Brief History" reviewed by Steve Rowland

This article was first published at the Explore PA History website.

He was at his best when paired with pianist Horace Parlan or his wife, organist Shirley Scott. In the following three videos, we get a sense of Turrentine's soul-jazz feel and ...

Read "Horace Parlan: Up and Down – 1961" reviewed by Marc Davis

I have a new hero: Pianist Horace Parlan. Until recently, I had heard of Parlan, but never really heard him. I certainly never knew his back story. It's inspirational--and his music is pretty damn good, too.

Parlan had a handicap. As a child, he lost some function in his right hand due to polio. ...
