Charles Pillow Large Ensemble: Electric Miles

Read "Electric Miles" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Dave Liebman, Jack DeJohnette, Dave Holland, Kenny Werner: Fire

Read "Fire" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

La vibrante energia di quest'album emana da un quartetto la cui età media dei membri supera i settant'anni: i due estremi sono Jack DeJohnette (76) e Kenny Werner (67). Il percorso del disco è ispirato al fuoco, uno degli elementi del tetragono che è alla base dell'ordine universale, secondo le prime religioni e filosofie dell'umanità.

Read "Out of the Blues" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Out of the Blues, featuring Craig Fraedrich on trumpet and flugelhorn with The Jazz Trumpet Ensemble, would have sounded great in the sweltering hard-bop landscape that Cannonball Adderley, The Jazz Messengers led by Art Blakey, Horace Silver and other jazz legends began to explore in the late 1950s.

Fraedrich has been featured trumpet soloist ...

Read "Vagabond Soul" reviewed by Paul Rauch

Alto and soprano saxophonist Nick Biello has been gaining momentum as an artist on the New York scene in the late 2010s, culminating in this recording for Truth Revolution Records, Vagabond Soul.

Ten Men

Read "Ten Men" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

My unscientific estimate contends that there are three female vocalists for every male vocalist. This does not mean that there are no male vocalists out there as evidenced by these ten examples. They just take a little longer to accumulate.
