In the first half of the twentieth century music critics were routinely dismissive of Hungarian composer Béla Bartók's work, often with a level of vitriol rarely seen in these enlightened times. ...

Soul Note
2005

In 2001, German saxophonist Gebhard Ullmann had the opportunity to record with the 20-piece NDR (North German Radio) Big Band, a project which he - a confessed non-fan of big band music - was hesitant to take on. It turns out ...
