Joanna Pascale at Chris' Jazz Cafe

Read "Joanna Pascale at Chris' Jazz Cafe" reviewed by Victor L. Schermer

Joanna Pascale
Chris' Jazz Cafe
Philadelphia, PA
November 10, 2018

The content of this show came as a complete surprise to this reviewer. I expected vocalist Joanna Pascale, who is by now a Philadelphia legend, to sing a typical set of standards from the Great American Songbook. Instead, she blew everyone ...

Dexter Gordon Quartet: Espace Cardin 1977

Read "Espace Cardin 1977" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Hanna Paulsberg Concept + Magnus Broo: Daughter Of The Sun

Read "Daughter Of The Sun" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

Fourteen centuries before Cleopatra, queen Hatshepsut became one of the few women to rule Egypt. Artworks at the time portrayed her with masculine muscles and a Pharaonic beard, but these icons were smashed to smithereens in Hatshepsut's burial chamber. Clearly she upset the male hierarchy back then. Three and a half thousand years later, this fourth ...

Fabled: Short Stories

Read "Short Stories" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

Anyone who has ever pulled pints for a living probably has some stories to tell. Sam Rapley, the leader of Fabled, used to work behind the bar in Manchester's renowned Band On The Wall club. A favoured site during World War II, its jazz acts often played on during air raids. Legend has it that twenty-four ...

Gary Alesbrook: Jazz In Movies

Read "Jazz In Movies" reviewed by Dr. Judith Schlesinger

This excellent debut by British trumpeter Gary Alesbrook is notable for four reasons: 1) he's leaping straight from well-known session musician to frontman; 2) he's been playing for 33 years, mostly for high profile, non-jazz bands in the UK like The Super Fuzzy Animals and The Scissor Sisters; 3) while eclectic in his taste and experience, ...

Bob Reynolds: Communication Is Key

Read "Bob Reynolds: Communication Is Key" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke

Reynolds doesn't have to apply his ...
