Nick Grondin: A View Of Earth

Read "A View Of Earth" reviewed by Ljubinko Zivkovic

As a guitarist, nowhere are you more exposed than in jazz, particularly if you aim for that clean, Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, Grant Green sound; elsewhere, particularly in pop and rock, the riffs, add-ons, the band, even studio wizardry can cover the lack of skill or mistakes. And then, unless it is a solo guitar album, ...

Meet Andrew Rothman

Read "Meet Andrew Rothman" reviewed by Tessa Souter and Andrea Wolper

Lawyer, audiophile, lifelong arts enthusiast, our newest Super Fan's life plan was to be a classical pianist, until college took him in another direction. But it was two “major epiphanies" (the first time he heard Miles Davis and, later, Bill Evans) that turned him into a jazz Super Fan--such a Super Fan, in fact, that he ...

For Pittsburgh guitarist Mark Strickland, it was Kenny Burrell's Midnight Blue (Blue Note, 1963) that first sparked his interest in ...

Coltrane 58: The Prestige Recordings

Read "Coltrane 58: The Prestige Recordings" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan

John Coltrane: Coltrane '58: The Prestige Recordings

Read "Coltrane '58: The Prestige Recordings" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Sure these 37 tracks, predominantly standards, blues, and ballads have been released before on such earlier, pre-iconoclast recordings as Black Pearls, Soultrane, Bahia, and Setting The Pace, (Prestige, 1958) but never as chronologically curated as they are presented here on Coltrane '58: The Prestige Recordings.
