John Beasley: Master of All Trades

Read "John Beasley: Master of All Trades" reviewed by Jim Worsley

In today's busy world, sometimes you just can't do it all. Apparently, John Beasley never received that memo. The pianist, composer, arranger, producer, music director, and film and TV composer is in high demand, and has an enormity of projects that would seem to belie the twenty-four hour day reality. It is perhaps the variance in ...

Sasha Mashin: Outsidethebox

Read "Outsidethebox" reviewed by Troy Dostert

For a debut record--and a drummer's album, no less--Sasha Mashin's Outsidethebox displays a remarkably assured ambition. In fact, Mashin even started his own label to ensure that his music saw the light of day. And with some top-shelf talent providing the compositions and instrumentation on these groove-heavy, stylistically diverse pieces, the results are consistently engaging and ...

Sasha Mashin: Outsidethebox

Read "Outsidethebox" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Drummer Sasha Mashin makes clear that he's the real deal within the first fifty seconds of this date. Opening “Sipiagin's Mood," the lead-off track on his debut release, with a solo drum introduction, Mashin immediately stakes his claim. Chops, of course, don't always equate to true artistry or position, but in this case technique and taste ...

The year 2015 was a curious blend of ups and downs, with glimmers of optimism offset by its losses. Venues opened to great fanfare, but others closed for a variety of reasons.
