Matt Mitchell: Phalanx Ambassadors

Read "Phalanx Ambassadors" reviewed by Troy Dostert

Pianist Matt Mitchell's music can be appreciated on a number of levels.

Noah Preminger: Pivot: Live At The 55 Bar

Read "Pivot: Live At The 55 Bar" reviewed by Budd Kopman

The first thing that should be said about tenor saxophonist Noah Preminger's Pivot: Live At The 55 Bar is the extremely exciting you-are-there feeling of the recording. Recording engineer Jimmy Katz has managed to capture the sound and visceral feel of a jazz quartet in full cry with no net. Many jazz listeners can remember a ...
