Alan Leatherman: Detour Ahead

Read "Detour Ahead" reviewed by Doug Collette

Two tracks into Alan Leatherman's Detour Ahead and the phrase “sweet soul music" comes to mind. But this isn't the rarified realm of Sam Cooke or Otis Redding with ballads. Rather, Leatherman resides--and comfortably so--in the role of classic torch singer

There is a lot to like about vocalist Christine Rosholt, who's based in Minnesota's Twin Cities region. On her debut album, she displays a good jazz sensibility on thirteen time-tested tunes.

The album begins promisingly with an easygoing “East of the Sun" and continues with the rarely heard Johnny Mercer lyrics to Woody Herman/Ralph Burns' ...

Randy Johnston: Detour Ahead

Read "Detour Ahead" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan

One of the few no nonsense guitarists of the current set following in the footsteps of Tal Farlow, Chuck Wayne, Johnny Smith, and other mainstream legends, Randy Johnston has built a solid catalog with varied and disparate albums for such labels as Muse, HighNote and J Curve. He also counts among his supporters and employers Houston ...
