Anthony Wonsey

Chicago native Anthony Wonsey is one of the most innovative jazz pianists on the planet. His dynamic compositions and imaginative arrangements make him a much in demand player internationally.

His progression flourished, resulting in a full scholarship to the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston

Evan Sherman: Not Just A Throwback

Read "Evan Sherman: Not Just A Throwback" reviewed by David A. Orthmann

It is too easy to simply consign Evan Sherman to the throng of young drummers in the thrall of bebop masters such as Max Roach, Art Blakey, and Philly Joe Jones. Throughout Sidewalkin', Sherman's self-produced recording from 2021, and a recent live performance at the Madison Community Arts Center in Madison, NJ, these influences are perceptible, ...
