An intermission in production occurred after a dispute between North Coast Brewing and the Estate of the ...

Julian "Cannonball" Adderley: Swingin' in Seattle, Live at the Penthouse 1966-1967

Read "Swingin' in Seattle, Live at the Penthouse 1966-1967" reviewed by Luca Canini

Un imperdibile e prezioso inedito. Settanta minuti di musica mai ascoltati prima che arrivano dritti dritti dalla seconda metà degli anni Sessanta. Un periodo cruciale per Julian Cannonball Adderley e il suo quintetto, freschi di approdo alla californiana Capitol, etichetta con le spalle decisamente più larghe e molto meno “ortodossa" rispetto alla newyorchese Riverside, e lanciati ...

Bartoli's first recording was Rossini's Il Barbiere di Siviglia (London/Decca, 1989) opposite famous baritone Leo Nucci. My own introduction to Bartoli was through her Mozart ...

Dmitry Baevsky / Jeb Patton: We Two

Read "We Two" reviewed by David A. Orthmann

Alto saxophonist Dmitry Baevsky and pianist Jeb Patton constitute a crackerjack, precision jazz instrument, stretching and bending the fundamentals of bebop into full-blown statements that render the absence of a bassist and drummer superfluous. The individual heroics that one expects of bop are in evidence, but it's the ways in which the duo maneuvers as a ...

Bootsie Barnes & Larry McKenna: The More I See You

Read "The More I See You" reviewed by Jack Bowers

What a genuine pleasure it is to hang loose and appreciate the warm and enticing sounds and impressive teamwork of Philadelphia tenor saxophone legends Bootsie Barnes and Larry McKenna, a couple of seasoned pros who blend together as smoothly as marmalade on toast.

Val Wilmer: Dues And Testimony

Read "Val Wilmer: Dues And Testimony" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Free-jazz, which marked the first revolution in jazz since bebop, and, some might say, the most significant revolution in the entire history of the music, was controversial and divisive. Still today, over half a century later, free-jazz is sometimes dismissed out of hand as just so much noise, or worse, finds itself simply airbrushed from the ...

Victor Assis Brasil: Esperanto/Toca Antonio Carlos Jobim

Read "Esperanto/Toca Antonio Carlos Jobim" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

By the summer of 1970, popular music's lunatic joyride through the 1960s had fully careened into the new decade. Almost anything and everything still seemed possible. That summer, saxophonist Victor Assis Brasil returned to his home in Brazil from studies (alongside Dizzy Gillespie, Chick Corea, Ron Carter, and others) at the Berklee College of Music to ...
