Karl Ackermann's Best Creative Music of 2021

Read "Karl Ackermann's Best Creative Music of 2021" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


2020 was a disaster and 2021 was less than a beacon of hope. COVID-19 is in the rear-view mirror but closer than it appears.

Read "Once Upon A Time - Live in Avignon" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Eberhard Weber: Hommage à Eberhard Weber

Read "Eberhard Weber: Hommage à Eberhard Weber" reviewed by John Kelman
