Read "For Lew" reviewed by Jack Bowers

The “Lew" referred to on Renaissance man Bill Warfield's latest big-band album, For Lew, is the late trumpeter Lew Soloff, whom Warfield remembers in the liner notes as “my mentor, colleague, friend and inspiration." The inspiration arrived when the teen-age Warfield, who had switched from trumpet to piano after losing his front teeth in an auto ...

2016: The Year in Jazz

Read "2016: The Year in Jazz" reviewed by Ken Franckling

Eyal Vilner Big Band: Almost Sunrise

Read "Almost Sunrise" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Suddenly, it seems, the state of Israel has become a focal point and incubator for contemporary jazz.

Dan Block: Duality

Read "Duality" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Sembra un album manifesto, questo del sassofonista Dan Block, come i Duets di Lee Konitz con musicisti dall'origine musicale disparata, da Ray Nance a Karl Berger.
