Adam Holzman: Truth Decay

Read "Truth Decay" reviewed by John Kelman

Truly a musician's musician, Adam Holzman's career, visibility-wise, has waxed and waned over the keyboardist's thirty-year career, but he's never been less than busy. His time spent with Miles Davis, during the last years of the music icon's life, helped raise the masterful and broad-reaching keyboardist/producer's profile.

Leonieke Scheuble's Journey Into The Art Of Jazz

Read "Leonieke Scheuble's Journey Into The Art Of Jazz" reviewed by David A. Orthmann

The setting is a living room in a suburban northern New Jersey home. For the most part, it's filled with things not necessarily available at the furniture outlets that line the local highways.
