Bob Dorough Trio featuring Michael Hornstein: But For Now

Read "But For Now" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

When But For Now first landed in 2015, it was a reminder of the good-natured brilliance behind the artistry of one of America's greatest living treasures. But with Bob Dorough's passing in April of 2018, the album's second coming plays more like a parting gift.

Recorded in 2014, when Dorough was already a ...

Dave Liebman: Expansions: The Puzzle

Read "Expansions: The Puzzle" reviewed by Budd Kopman

The Puzzle is the terrfic follow-up recording by David Liebman's new group, Expansions, the first being Samsara.

Read "There Was Never" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Saxophonist Dave Wilson cuts an imposing figure on the cover of There Was Never, his fourth album in total and his first on the Zoho Music imprint. There's intensity fixed on his face, with eyes closed in concentration and embouchure set for attack. And then there's his tenor saxophone. It has a larger than life presence ...
