Kate Reid: The Heart Already Knows

Read "The Heart Already Knows" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

There's a special sort of intimacy achieved when a singer performs with the accompaniment of only one instrument. On this CD Kate Reid explores that in a big way, recording duets with two different pianists and three different guitarists.

Reid has an appealingly husky alto voice with a casual coziness that adapts nicely to ...

Dan Pugach: Plus One

Read "Plus One" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

On this debut CD, drummer Dan Pugach shows himself to be a composer and arranger who has mastered the art of making a group sound much bigger than it is. His nonet plays intricate and soulful jazz with the punch of a much bigger band.

Pugach is very good at using brawny up-tempo rhythms. ...

Andrew Distel: It Only Takes Time

Read "It Only Takes Time" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

2017: The Year in Jazz

Read "2017: The Year in Jazz" reviewed by Ken Franckling

Mônica Vasconcelos: Brazil Songs of Resistance

Read "Mônica Vasconcelos: Brazil Songs of Resistance" reviewed by Duncan Heining

A tanned, beautiful young woman in a skimpy bikini walks through the lapping sea waters on the edge of a sun-soaked beach. Soft music plays, its shifting beat following her footsteps. It's a cliché, of course, but a powerful one when it comes to thoughts (male, mainly) of Brazil and its music.

UK-based Brazilian ...

Paul McCandless: Morning Sun

Read "Morning Sun" reviewed by Jack Bowers

First things first. The full title of this decorous CD is Morning Sun: Adventures with Oboe--Paul McCandless with the Paul Winter Consort: A Retrospective. It covers sixteen recordings made by oboist McCandless spanning a forty-year period (1970-2010), all save three with the Winter Consort. Needless to say, a large number of musicians were involved; their names ...

L'ultimo hipster. La vita e la musica di Mark Murphy

Read "L'ultimo hipster. La vita e la musica di Mark Murphy" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Non trovate accenni a Mark Murphy nelle più recenti storie del jazz, neanche il nome. Una lacuna che appare inspiegabile (a differenza di Frank Sinatra, Mel Tormè e Tony Bennett) che si giustifica solo col ritardo a collocare il cantante di Syracuse in una prospettiva storica.

Eppure già prima della sua scomparsa -il ...
