Wolfgang Muthspiel: Where The River Goes

Read "Where The River Goes" reviewed by Matt Hooke

A song titled “For Django" would usually feature a hard-swinging gypsy rhythm and rapid-fire guitar lines.

Brad Mehldau Trio: Seymour Reads The Constitution!

Read "Seymour Reads The Constitution!" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Pianist Brad Mehldau has an adventurous and innovative side, one that he displays on Largo (Warner Brothers, 2002) and Highway Rider (Nonesuch, 2010), albums that feature expansive and--with Largo--electronic inputs. But he always returns to the acoustic trio format that brought him to prominence. It began with a series of five Art Of The Trio albums ...
