Read "Playing With The Wind" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Pianist Misha Tsiganov seems to further his creative reach with each date he delivers.

But, since his acclaimed 2004 debut Forma Nueva, a couple of Grammy nods, and last year's quietly brilliant The Seasons, Valera's name and exciting blend of culture, tradition, and progression has spread deservedly like wildfire through the larger ...

Billy Childs: Rebirth

Read "Rebirth" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

It's been a while since we've heard pianist Billy Childs really dig in. While he certainly hasn't been dormant, reaching tremendous artistic heights in semi-recent times with a pair of highly refined chamber jazz explorations and a much-lauded tribute to Laura Nyro, the Childs of yore--the man that would throw down the gauntlet night after night ...
