JMancera: Mancera #5

Read "Mancera #5" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Contemporary jazz can't compare to its straight-ahead and left-of-center relatives in terms of complexity, weight, and scope, but that doesn't mean it has absolutely nothing to give. The masses who are taken with this form of music are well aware that it offers an escape, giving off thoughts of sunny days, sandy beaches, and starry nights. ...
