Read "Björk: Jazz Muse & Hyperballadeer" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

If jazz is, as someone put it, the sound of surprise, then it makes complete sense that countless musicians have become enamored with the music of Björk.

Judy Wexler: Crowded Heart

Read "Crowded Heart" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

For her fifth album, Judy Wexler has embraced a concept that's oddly foreign in the jazz vocal realm. Instead of walking her way down the all-too-familiar avenues for singers—classic Broadway-cum-jazz material, canonical works written by revered jazz figures, pop tunes reshaped with harmonic facelifts, self-penned originals—she takes the road less traveled by focusing on the work ...
