Various Artists: Innerpeace: Rare Spiritual Funk And Jazz Gems

Read "Innerpeace: Rare Spiritual Funk And Jazz Gems" reviewed by Chris May

It took a few years for producer Bob Shad's newly formed Mainstream Records to nail its direction in the 1960s. A less than auspicious start was releasing the first singles by the latter-day Trump-boosting halfwit Ted Nugent. A better move, given hindsight, was releasing the debut album by Janis Joplin's Big Brother & The Holding Company. ...

Hal Willner's Rock 'n' Rota

Read "Hal Willner's Rock 'n' Rota" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

"The whole is greater than the sum of its parts." Anyone who has ever been at an all-star event--especially if that was a tribute concert--has learned the importance of Aristotle's maxim the hard way. Maybe the occasion was momentous, the cast probably star-studded, the heart certainly in the right place and the expectations high... however, at ...

John Coltrane: Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album

Read "Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album" reviewed by Luca Canini

Non un bootleg registrato alla meno peggio chissà da chi e chissà come; e nemmeno il remake di un remake spacciato per novità assoluta dopo un paio di goffi aggiustamenti e magari una manciata di minuti mai ascoltati prima. Stavolta l'inedito è clamoroso: quattordici brani fissati su nastro dal quartetto di John Coltrane il 6 marzo ...

The Last Night At The Old Place

Read "The Last Night At The Old Place" reviewed by Duncan Heining

By any standards the release of The Last Night At The Old Place will prove to be one of archive releases of the year, second only, perhaps, to the 'Lost' Coltrane album. All power, therefore, to Mike Gavin who has inherited the Cadillac catalogue from the late John Jack with his first release of archive material. ...

Wayne Escoffery & Tenor Traditions
Smalls
March 31, 2018

To assist with his investigation into tenor traditions, saxophonist Wayne Escoffery formed a full-thrust front line with Marcus Strickland and George Garzone, surely one of the most vibrant teams possible around current NYC clubland. The quintet was completed by bassist Yasushi ...

John Coltrane: Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album

Read "Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Half a century after his passing, the music of John Coltrane continues to be studied, analyzed and enjoyed for its historical and musical exceptionality. Every few years it seems that another undiscovered collection surfaces and is met with enviable enthusiasm, much of it centered around speculating where Coltrane's music was going at a point in time, ...

Monday nights, otherwise a down time for many music venues, have been magic for the Kuumbwa Jazz Center in jny: Santa Cruz, CA. Kuumbwa's most prominent shows occur, oddly, on off-calendar Monday nights or midweek, featuring headliners before or after their engagements nearby in jny: San Francisco and jny: Oakland and who are touring up or ...
