Read "Art Pepper: Presents “West Coast Sessions” Volumes 3 & 4" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Today is the day that I finally come clean about Art Pepper and me. In 1984, I was taking a year off between having finished Pharmacy School and beginning a graduate program in Medicinal Chemistry and Drug Design. During this time, I had my yearly eye appointment with my ophthalmologist, one Dr. A. Henry Thomas, with ...

SFJAZZ Collective: Live: SFJAZZ Center 2016 - Music of Miles Davis & Original Compositions

Read "Live: SFJAZZ Center 2016 - Music of Miles Davis & Original Compositions" reviewed by John Kelman

In the thirteen years since the SFJAZZ Collective first came together in February 2004, this revolving door octet (septet, in 2009) of “cream of the crop" US-based jazz musicians has, most years, followed a consistent modus operandi: select a well-known jazz (and, in two cases, beyond jazz) musician and pay tribute through innovative arrangements of his/her ...

Sonny Rollins: Swiss Radio Days, Vol. 40 - Zurich 1959

Read "Swiss Radio Days, Vol. 40 - Zurich 1959" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

The quantity and quality of music released in 1959 have led many to call it a watershed year for modern jazz. Even just cursory research calls up such landmark titles as John Coltrane's Giant Steps (Atlantic), Ornette Coleman's The Shape of Jazz to Come (Atlantic), Dave Brubeck's Time Out (Columbia) and Miles Davis's Kind of Blue ...

Louis Hayes: Serenade for Horace

Read "Serenade for Horace" reviewed by Niccolò Lucarelli

La lancetta del jazz torna indietro all'epoca d'oro dell'hard bop, nella New York febbrile e colorata degli anni Cinquanta e Sessanta. Per il suo omaggio al maestro Horace Silver (con il quale esordì nel 1956 sostituendo Art Taylor), Louis Hayes ha realizzato un album di carattere, musicalmente sublime e concettualmente profondo, interpretando il repertorio dello stesso ...

Louis Hayes will turn 80 on May 31 (2017), but the party is still goin' hearty. He started celebrating this milestone back in February with an 18-day tour that began in Barcelona and concluded in jny: Amsterdam.

Trumpet From On High

Read "Trumpet From On High" reviewed by Jeff Fitzgerald, Genius

I recently celebrated my sixteenth anniversary at AAJ with a quiet ceremony held in the mahogany-paneled Writer's Lounge at AAJ Headquarters in jny: Philadelphia. I'm not much of a cake person, but there were cheesesteaks from Sonny's and enough alcohol to get an entire fraternity through a regulation 30-day month. Commodore Ricci and my fellow member ...

Jack Wilson: Something Personal – 1966

Read "Jack Wilson: Something Personal – 1966" reviewed by Marc Davis

Maybe I'm imagining it, but pianist Jack Wilson owes a great big thank-you to John Coltrane on Something Personal. At least that's how I hear it on the opening track, “Most Unsoulful Woman," one of two highlights on this 1966 album.

Coltrane, the legendary saxman, released his masterpiece A Love Supreme in 1965. It ...
