We Jazz Festival
Helsinki, Finland
December 2-9, 2017

Being a party animal at latitudes above 60 degrees takes some doing in the winter months, in Anchorage as in Archangel. Helsinki is south of both cities, just, but is host to one of Scandinavia's hottest and yet coldest modern jazz festivals in ...

Read "Marc Copland: Zenith and Haunted Heart" reviewed by John Ephland

Zenith
InnerVoice Jazz
2016

There's some shared, ongoing history here. Between drummer Joey Baron and bassist Drew Gress, pianist Marc Copland has logged some pretty decent music time.

Jon Davis: Changes Over Time

Read "Changes Over Time" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

8th Annual Red Hook Jazz Festival Takes Place June 14 & 21 In The Urban Meadow

“The Red Hook Jazz Festival exists contentedly on the margins, like its namesake neighborhood and much of the music on its bill... The mood in the audience was neighborly, with a higher ratio of small children to youngish adults than I’ve seen at any musical event not expressly pitched as a kids’ show.” —Nate Chinen, New York Times “The lineup ...

Read "Sky/Lift" reviewed by Budd Kopman

Pianist Randy Ingram is an unabashed romantic and through Sky/Lift communicates all of the optimism, love of life and the sheer joy of making music for everyone to experience.
