Craft Beer and Jazz

Read "Craft Beer and Jazz" reviewed by Thad Aerts

As I type these words, I'm sitting here sipping on an Apricot Peach Orange Whip Mimosa Gose while listening to Derek Bailey's Improvisation LP. If you aren't aware of Bailey's work, he was a British guitarist who championed the European “free" style. All improv, all the time-with no structure to speak of. Many have argued that ...

Read "Tomas Fujiwara: The More the Better" reviewed by Troy Dostert

Drummer Tomas Fujiwara is a man on a mission. With recent and upcoming projects too many to list, he's one of the most widely recorded and in-demand drummers in contemporary creative jazz.

Hermeto Pascoal: No Mundo Dos Sons

The packaging for the two-CD set from Brazil's Hermeto Pascoal, an 81-year-old multi-instrumentalist, shines of its own accord. Its trifold paper cover, unfolds like a lotus to reveal two CDs and a sleeve containing a large fold-out glossy paper.

Ron Carter: A Clew of Worms

Read "Ron Carter: A Clew of Worms" reviewed by Jim Worsley

So the saying goes, the early bird gets the worm. Occasionally, if one is so fortunate, you can get a whole lot more.

Roger Beaujolais: Sunset

Read "Sunset" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Maybe it should be a law that every vibraphonist is required to cover Bobby Hutcherson's “Little B's Poem."

Here Roger Beaujolais, on his 19th studio ...

Cuong Vu: Ballet: The Music Of Michael Gibbs

Read "Ballet: The Music Of Michael Gibbs" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Having recently immersed myself in Miles Davis' In a Silent Way (Columbia, 1969) and Bitches Brew (Columbia, 1969), the journey to the music on trumpeter Cuong Vu's Ballet (The Music of Michael Gibbs) is a necessarily short one. Davis had been working up to his “Freedom Principle" throughout his recordings with is second great quintet, featuring ...

The other three recordings were Cookin' with the Miles Davis Quintet (1957), Workin' with the Miles Davis Quintet (1959), and Steamin' with the Miles Davis Quintet (1961).
