Read "Dan Bilawsky's Best Releases Of 2015" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

A theme for this year's list? How about “Jazz Unbound?" I initially planned on placing my picks into different categories, as I've often done in the past. But I thought better of it. The releases that caught my ear in 2015 cover the entire spectrum of possibility--winning straight-ahead outings, audacious affairs, dynamic debuts, intimate encounters, stellar ...

Laurie Antonioli & Richie Beirach: Varuna

Read "Varuna" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

This absorbing release--an album that's something of a sequel to The Duo Sessions (Nabel Records, 2005)--finds vocalist Laurie Antonioli and pianist Richie Beirach painting one divine musical tableau after another. There are vivid numbers that place Antonioli's seraphic vocals atop Beirach's dense and full-flavored chords, spare readings that allow fragility and the human condition to come ...

Read "Dan Bilawsky's Best Releases of 2014" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

How does an album end up on this list? It really comes down to two things: strength on impact and staying power. Some records hit hard from the start, ultimately losing power with play after play. Other records come on gently, growing on the ear and the mind over time. But it's the truly rare one ...

C. Michael Bailey's Best Recordings of 2014

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.
