Rick Mandyck: The Return From Now

Read "Rick Mandyck: The Return From Now" reviewed by Paul Rauch

It was a cold Tuesday evening the last week of December. 2016 was mercifully coming to a close, this evening, a final chorus of a long blues blown soulfully, and mournfully into the night. I sat at the bar at Seattle's storied jazz spot, Tula's, in eager anticipation of the evening's performance of a quartet led ...

Ray Vega & Thomas Marriott: Return of the East-West Trumpet Summit

Read "Return of the East-West Trumpet Summit" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Seattle-based trumpeter Thomas Marriott plays well with electricity. Specifically, with the Hammond B3 organ. The most memorable of his now nine CDs on Origin Records feature either the Hammond B3 or some serious Moog synthesier/Fender Rhodes work: Crazy: The Music of Willie Nelson (2007 ), with Ryan Burns on electric keys; Human Spirit (2009), featuring Gary ...

Brad Gibson: Poontet

Read "Poontet" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

Read "Tattooed by Passion: Music Inspired by the Paintings of Dale Chisman" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan
