I always look forward to my hometown festival and over the past 30 years I have photographed Canadian and international artists that have performed at the Ottawa Jazz Festival.

Ricordiamo Michael Brecker

Read "Ricordiamo Michael Brecker" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Sono trascorsi più di dieci anni dalla morte di Michael Brecker, avvenuta il 13 gennaio 2007, il giorno dopo quella di Alice Coltrane. Brecker è stato il massimo e più influente sax tenore post-coltraniano ed è quanto mai doveroso ricordarne la vita e il percorso artistico.

Hudson - DeJohnette Grenadier Medeski Scofield: Hudson

Read "Hudson" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Rightly vaunted as a 'supergroup,' specifically in the Tony Williams Lifetime mold, this eponymously titled band really does qualify as a super quartet, so much so that any background information on these four protagonists would seem superfluous.

Budjana's three decades of performing and recording, including collaborations with jazz A-listers as Peter Erskine, Joe Locke and Larry Goldings, are worth the retrospective. ...

Bill Evans: Another Time: The Hilversum Concert

Read "Another Time: The Hilversum Concert" reviewed by Geno Thackara

As charmed good-luck magnets go, producer Zev Feldman is the jazz world's equivalent of the guy who keeps winning the lottery year after year. He and Resonance Records specialize in finding and curating unreleased gems to share with the wider world--not dodgy bootlegs, but quality material in terms of content and sound--and giving each discovery the ...
