Chris Massey & The NJP: Whosoever

Read "Whosoever" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Drummer Chris Massey's debut--Vibrainium (Self Produced, 2011)--was an Art Blakey-influenced quintet date that put a modern slant on the hard bop tradition; this follow-up follows the same guidelines, but puts a greater emphasis on the modern.

The ...

"Freedom Riders" CD Review by indie-music.com

Although he may not be a familiar name to most, Willerm Delisfort makes jazz that must be heard. All three of his selections are excellent. “Modalic Blues" is a live recording, which is driven by particularly noteworthy bass, while harmonized saxophones nudge the gentler “The Island of Ziesha" along. Delisfort doesn't take centerstage until “Tuskegee Experiment", ...
