Read "Live at Ronnie Scott's" reviewed by Geno Thackara

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.

John McLaughlin & The 4th Dimension: The Boston Record

Read "The Boston Record" reviewed by Ian Patterson

The jny:Boston crowd's roars on this live set from John McLaughlin and the 4th Dimension's 2013 tour say as much about the dazzling interplay of the band as it does about McLaughlin's enduring appeal. For sure, McLaughlin remains one of jazz-fusion's major draws but the acclaim has little to do with nostalgia and everything to do ...
