Bunky Green: Urgency and Continuity

Read "Bunky Green: Urgency and Continuity" reviewed by Anil Prasad

Saxophonist Bunky Green bristles at the idea of playing by the rules. On more than one occasion, the Milwaukee, Wisconsin native was on his way to jazz stardom, but each time his principles guided him elsewhere. This is a significant reason why the highly influential musician has mostly remained unsung and out of the spotlight for ...

Keith Javors: Mo

Read "Mo" reviewed by Mark Sabbatini

Mo' City Jungle is a bit like a mediocre blind date where the person in question makes a nice first impression but reveals an unpleasant identity crisis as the evening progresses.

Pianist Keith Javors' third album is a bit frustrating because his septet of players indicate early what they're capable of, but seldom live ...
