Read "Eric Dolphy: Gone In The Air" reviewed by Mark Werlin

Newly-remastered SACD reissues of Eric Dolphy's albums for the Prestige label mark the 90th anniversary of his birth.

The recording sessions that Eric Dolphy led in the last four years of his life advanced the evolution of jazz. It was a tragedy that Eric Dolphy gave himself so completely and unselfishly to art ...

Lucia Cadotsch: Whispers Speak Louder than Screams

Read "Lucia Cadotsch: Whispers Speak Louder than Screams" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

Speak Low (Enja Records, 2017), the debut release of her current Trio of the same name, catapulted Lucia Cadotsch among the new artists that promise to write original chapters of vocal jazz while showing deference to the artists that preceded them. Playing a compelling brand of music that has been aptly described as “acoustic retrofuturism" --think ...

Andreas Varady: Guitar Wizard On The Rise

Read "Andreas Varady: Guitar Wizard On The Rise" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke

Anthony Braxton Quartet: (Willisau) 1991 Studio

Read "(Willisau) 1991 Studio" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Picture Miles Davis finishing a solo and stepping off the bandstand to smoke, while John Coltrane steps up to the microphone to play.
