Yoko Miwa Trio: Pathways

Read "Pathways" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Yoko Miwa is a pianist operating in the Boston area whose stylistic reach touches on funky gospel, bluesy bebop and dramatic pomp. She and her long time trio jump out nicely from the first track, the surging gospel rhythms of Marc Johnson's “Log O'Rhythm," drummer Scott Goulding providing a solid shuffle foundation to Miwa's pounding. They ...

Joe La Barbera: Experiencing Bill Evans

Read "Joe La Barbera: Experiencing Bill Evans" reviewed by Victor L. Schermer

In his own unassuming way, Bill Evans changed the face of jazz piano trio forever. He made the piano a lyrical, expressive voice for the most subtle and deep emotions, and he transformed the rhythm section from a time-beating, swing-maintaining outfit into an intimate, conversational musical unit. He loved tradition. It was just his grasp of ...

Paul Winter Sextet: Count Me In

Read "Paul Winter Sextet: Count Me In" reviewed by Duncan Heining

The Paul Winter Sextet might just be one of the best early sixties groups you never heard. Their story, and that of their leader and altoist Paul Winter's, is certainly one of the most remarkable in jazz. Had some director made a film of the Sextet's short life, jazz buffs would have scoffed at the conceit. ...
