The Very Singular Mr. Ran Blake

Read "The Very Singular Mr. Ran Blake" reviewed by Duncan Heining

There have been few American composers and musicians, with the ability to encapsulate their country's music in all its racial and ethnic complexity. We might perhaps point to Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, Charles Ives and perhaps, in their own distaff ways, Harry Partch and Steve Reich. In jazz, their number is fewer still--Duke Ellington and George ...

Joel Miller: Unstoppable

Read "Unstoppable" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Greg Reitan: West 60th

Read "West 60th" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Pianist Greg Reitan is based in Los Angeles, a good place to take advantage of the work he has found in film and television. He has also served up four previous top-shelf jazz trio recordings, beginning with his terrific debut, Some Other Time (2009), followed up by Antibes (2010), Daybreak (2011) and Post No Bills, all ...

The Toronto Jazz Orchestra, aka TJO, was created to perform music by the major jazz composers, like Miles Davis and his Miles Ahead (Columbia Records, 1958), the trumpeter's collaboration with Gil Evans, for one. With 20, the group celebrates the composition and arranging skills of its artistic director, Josh Grossman. With a twenty year ...

Holiday 2014: Nearly Christmas

Read "Holiday 2014:  Nearly Christmas" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Where is your sense of humor? No, not one of these discs could practically be called “Holiday" or “Christmas" music. Para-Christmas music, maybe, but not the bona fide real deal. I just exercise my critical prerogative to call these closely related releases okay for review as holiday releases, mostly because of their Christian emphases and sacred ...

Using The Jazz Trope For Assimilation

Read "Using The Jazz Trope For Assimilation" reviewed by Scott Krane

I read an interesting thing in the Harvard Gazette today. Hansung Ryu a cellist from Seoul who played a summer concert at Harvard said “If Harvard were an Aaron Copland song, it would be 'Hoe-Down'--difficult to play but very colorful and exciting." Ryu played selections from “Rodeo" at Harvard's Sanders Theater on August. 3. The Gazette ...
