Read "C. Michael Bailey’s Best Recordings of 2017" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

This year marks my 20th contributing to AAJ. Twenty years ago, I was 38 years old looking for an outlet for my music writing that had somehow avoided me until I came across an opportunity disguised as a call for articles from one Michael Ricci in jny: Philadelphia. I emailed my review of Art Pepper's San ...

Low Society's 2014 release You Can't Keep a Good Woman Down (2014, Ice House Records) was a revelation to me.

Read "C. Michael Bailey's Best Recordings of 2014" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

This year turned out to be a watershed of jazz and beyond vocals, instrumental jazz and important reissues. It was a year of music that further opened my eyes and ears to music I had not previously valued or considered. How short-sighted of me.

Low Society: You Can’t Keep a Good Woman Down

Read "You Can’t Keep a Good Woman Down" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Let's not insult Low Society lead vocalist Mandy Lemons by noting she was influenced by Janis Joplin. That is the lazy critic's out. Better we describe her as the love child of a serious Amy Winehouse and Big Mama Thornton, irradiated by beta particles that had once passed by an AM radio, late at night, playing ...
