Read "Nichols, Newk with Kenny/Elmo, Prez & More" reviewed by Marc Cohn

We're rotating through our 2019 centenarians--this week Herbie Nichols with tracks from his first Blue Note LP. Our artist log tells me it's time for another deep dive into the vault, including another piano faceoff (because you loved the last one): this time Fats Waller versus Teddy Wilson & Art Tatum. There's more Newk too, recordings ...

I Sing the Lineup Eclectic

Read "I Sing the Lineup Eclectic" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

Cool organ, hot tenor, acapella movie theme and third-stream oboe musings—this episode has everything but a theme. While the albums discussed span the era from 1972 to 2014 the insights are timeless-probably. After that wide-ranging exploration of jazz and jazz adjacent fun, pop matters explores Talk Talk's Spirit of Eden as well as releases by Frank ...

November Birthday Salutes

Read "November Birthday Salutes" reviewed by Marc Cohn

It's time to celebrate November birthdays! Among the worthies, we also celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Phil Woods recording Alive and Well in Paris, which was slated for release on Impulse! in the States, but never released here; there must be a story about this, but I'm in the dark.

3 Play+: American Waltz

Read "American Waltz" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza

The music of a band is determined by its players. 3 Play+ assimilates its diverse influences to bring about a confluent whole.

3Play+: American Waltz

Read "American Waltz" reviewed by Mark Corroto
