Ayn Inserto Jazz Orchestra: Down a Rabbit Hole

Read "Down a Rabbit Hole" reviewed by Jack Bowers

If you must venture Down a Rabbit Hole, as Ayn Inserto has done on the first album as leader of her Jazz Orchestra in a decade, it's comforting to encounter in its depths musicians of the caliber of trombonist John Fedchock, tenor saxophonist George Garzone and trumpeter Sean Jones who add luster and bravado to the ...

Jason Anick & Jason Yeager: United

Read "United" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Violinist Jason Anick and pianist Jason Yeager share an open-minded approach to jazz.

Daniel Bennett Group: The Mystery at Clown Castle

Read "The Mystery at Clown Castle" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

The Daniel Bennett Group's music is seductive.

He even manages to make spoken word go down just as easily as vocals, no doubt greatly aided by the skills of guest ...

Jason Yeager: Affirmation

Read "Affirmation" reviewed by Mark Corroto

No sophomore slump for pianist Jason Yeager. His trio disc Affirmation actually has the feel of a mature artist's fourth, fifth, and sixth recording. Maybe that is because his trio is a true working unit with bassist Danny Weller and drummer Matt Rousseau or possibly it's his ability to integrate varying musical concepts without sounding imitative. ...

One of the Berklee College of Music's youngest instructors, violinist/mandolinist Jason Anick had already made a name for himself in 2008, when at twenty two years of age he was invited to tour with Grammy-winning guitarist John Jorgenson. Anick's tremendous virtuosity was to the fore on the acoustic Rhythm Future Quartet's Sleepless (Self Produced, 2011), a ...

Daniel Bennett: The Bear Truth

Read "Daniel Bennett: The Bear Truth" reviewed by Ludwig vanTrikt

Whether considered a member of Generation X or Y, saxophonist/multi-instrumentalist/composer and bandleader Daniel Bennett's career certainly is indicative of how many young artists' careers are ascending with the advent of the internet. But Daniel has a measured cynicism towards balancing live performance with the wonders of tech.

Moreover what is also refreshing about ...
