Scott Kinsey: Near Life Experience

Read "Near Life Experience" reviewed by John Kelman

It's been a full decade since Scott Kinsey last released an album under his own name (the 2006 Abstract Logix debut, Kinesthetics) and, if anything, Near Life Experience manages to trump actually its predecessor in both ambition and Kinsey's significant cast of invited contributors.

Heartfelt Performances And “remembering Joe Sample” At The Berks Jazz Fest

For all of the boasting that the United States can do being the birthplace of every major popular music genre since 1920, the United States cannot claim the credit for the widespread popularization of this music. That honor goes to Europe, and more specifically, the United Kingdom, who more than any other country, forced the United ...

Eliot Lewis

Read "Eliot Lewis" reviewed by Alan Bryson



At an early age Eliot Lewis was determined to make music his life's work, and in the ensuing years he has been living the dream. As you'll hear in the interview, even as an adolescent he had some extraordinary musical encounters which, if submitted as a screenplay, would probably be rejected as unbelievable. After ...
