Read "Live: SFJAZZ Center 2016 - Music of Miles Davis & Original Compositions" reviewed by John Kelman

In the thirteen years since the SFJAZZ Collective first came together in February 2004, this revolving door octet (septet, in 2009) of “cream of the crop" US-based jazz musicians has, most years, followed a consistent modus operandi: select a well-known jazz (and, in two cases, beyond jazz) musician and pay tribute through innovative arrangements of his/her ...

Rick Hirsch's Big Ol' Band: Pocono Git-Down

Read "Pocono Git-Down" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Even though the days of cross-country bus trips, one-night stands and regular appearances on radio and TV have long since vanished, big bands continue to dot the landscape on all corners of the map, from such large population hubs as New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco and others to cities and towns so small ...

Read "I 10 CD nel CD-Player di... Logan Hone" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

01. Kate Bush -Hounds of Love (EMI -1985).
Negli ultimi quattro mesi l'ho ascoltato quasi tutti i giorni. Non mi annoia mai e suona sempre come la cosa più fresca mai ascoltata. Kate Bush è musicista davvero ispirata e stimolante, difficile trovare aggettivi adeguati per descrivere la sua musica.

Brian Bromberg: Brian Bromberg

Read "Brian Bromberg" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Talk about backstory! There are multiple backstories going on with bass virtuoso Brian Bromberg's Full Circle. The first actually involves Bromberg's back. Full Circle marks Bromberg's return to recording and full-on playing since suffering a debilitating spinal injury several years ago. Always a chops-meister, Bromberg truly projects the sheer joy of music-making throughout. Cutting loose seems ...
