The South Florida Jazz Orchestra: The Music of Gary Lindsay / Are We Still Dreaming

Read "The Music of Gary Lindsay / Are We Still Dreaming" reviewed by Jack Bowers

In other words, who is Gary Lindsay and why is the South Florida Jazz Orchestra performing his music? In brief, the answer is that Lindsay, an alto saxophonist and well-respected educator, has written and ...

Read "Conversations" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

That disc, and now WeWantSounds' 2018 vinyl edition, have restored to general circulation an album that can be filed alongside such mid-twentieth century jazz-guitar gems as Johnny Smith's Moonlight ...

Chris Monson: Seldom In The Wells

Read "Seldom In The Wells" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

What jumps out of the speakers at the beginning of the spin of Seldom in the Well--the debut of Toronto-based guitarist Chris Monson--is the full, rich sound.

Hard Bop continues to find a home in NY's Smoke Jazz & Supper Club. For decades the room featured One for All -a group whose stalwart players Eric Alexander, Steve Davis, David Hazeltine, John Webber, Jim Rotondi, and Joe Farnsworth had critics comparing them to Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers.
