Andrew Rathbun: Atwood Suites

Read "Atwood Suites" reviewed by Paul Rauch

The mingling of jazz music and poetry is not a new concept. It has always been an amiable, yet at times, uncomfortable fit. From a verse standpoint, it is in many ways liberating. While most vocalized lyrics and spoken word forms rely on rhyme to speak to cadence and rhythm, free verse poetry liberates the narrative ...

Adam Nussbaum: The Lead Belly Project

Read "The Lead Belly Project" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

The blues is simple music. What do they call it? Three chords and the truth? They say the same about country music and rock, but that's another article. But for much of American music, blues is the bedrock, be it rock, soul, funk, a good slice of country western, and, yes, jazz. Drummer Adam ...
