Read "Hiding Place" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


Mark Murphy's 2018 release Pocketful of Rainbows (Self Produced, 2018) was a surprise stand-out recording that year. Now, this Mark Murphy is not that Mark Murphy (1932 -2015), icon of jazz vocals.

Peter Nelson: Ash, Dust, and the Chalkboard Cinema

Julian Shore: Filaments

Read "Julian Shore: Filaments" reviewed by Dave Wayne


There is nothing wrong with mellow jazz. As long as distance can be maintained from the hackneyed, dialed-in feel of smooth jazz, it can be a refreshing change of pace from the intensity and analytical focus of a lot of modern art music, jazz or otherwise.
