Justin Gray: New Horizons

Read "New Horizons" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

What's an artist to do if he can't find an established instrument to suit his musical needs. If you are bassist Justin Gray, you design and co-create one. It's called the Bass Veena, a a hybrid that combines the characteristics of the fretless bass and numerous Indian string instruments.

Elton John & Lady Gaga: New Horizons

Read "New Horizons" reviewed by Ken Dryden

With over 40 albums to his credit, numerous hit songs, and having co-written a successful Broadway musical, Elton John continues to sell out arenas in his fifth decade as a performer. Lady Gaga doesn't have his extensive résumé, but she has attracted a lot of attention with outrageous stunts and costumes as wild as some of ...

Ryan Haines Big Band: New Horizons

Read "New Horizons" reviewed by Edward Blanco

I just can't help but feel that the outlook for big band jazz keeps improving with every new release that hits the shelves these days.

The leader's trombone soars fluidly overhead as he solos with ...

Caribbean Jazz Project: New Horizons

Read "New Horizons" reviewed by Dave Hughes



These are new horizons, indeed, as this is a whole new band, save for Dave Samuels.   Former frontliners Paquito D'Rivera and Andy Narell, as well as their rhythmmates, have departed for other projects, and Samuels has replenished the line-up with equally impressive talent in flautist Dave Valentin and guitarist Steve Khan.  The change ...

Caribbean Jazz Project: New Horizons

Read "New Horizons" reviewed by Ed Kopp

Reedman Paquito D’Rivera and steel drummer Andy Narell recently quit the Caribbean Jazz Project, but founder Dave Samuels (vibes) didn't abandon his concept. Samuels convinced flutist Dave Valentin and guitarist Steve Khan to form a new Project. The revamped lineup just released its first album, and it's a very nice outing. New Horizons conjures images of ...
