From there, we listen to Sarah Vaughan and hear the great Tadd Dameron with his Sextet with the tune “The Squirrel." As the ...

Nick Sanders Trio
Playtime 2050
Sunnyside Records

Nick Sanders understandably sees some turbulence ahead at the midpoint of the century (not to mention the decades leading up to it). Disturbing as this cover may seem, though, he and a couple adventurous trio-mates make sure this speculative portrait keeps its ...

James Brandon Lewis, Mick Rossi and More

Read "James Brandon Lewis, Mick Rossi and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Finding your own path is one thing, staying on it is another. This show features several musicians who are doing that today. Bassist Moppa Elliott's urge to challenge the idiom is not confined to his occasionally controversial Mostly Other People Do The Killing. His new recording, Jazz Band/Rock Band/Dance Band, presents three distinctly different bands and ...

Jeong Lim Yang: Déjà Vu

Read "Déjà Vu" reviewed by Troy Dostert

On her excellent debut record, Déjà Vu, bassist Jeong Lim Yang proves that there's more than one way to make a first impression on a listener. Rather than taking the obvious route with up-tempo workouts or deviously complex compositions, Yang is content to carve out plenty of open space for her music to breathe. Her graceful ...

Nick Sanders & Logan Strosahl: Janus

Read "Janus" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Pianist Nick Sanders and saxophonist Logan Strosahl have named their duet outing Janus. The Janus of the Roman Empire era was a God with two faces, a God of time, with one gaze directed forward, the other backward in time.

Sanders and Strosahl began playing in the duo format a decade ago, wood-shedding in ...

Nick Sanders Trio: You Are A Creature

Read "You Are A Creature" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

It's sad to say, but many newly-formed piano trios tend to suffer by comparison before they ever get off the ground.
