David Angel Jazz Ensemble: Out on the Coast

Read "Out on the Coast" reviewed by Troy Dostert


Every now and then one runs across musicians or composers who are well-known by their peers, or who have carved out loyal followings regionally, but who at the same time have for whatever reason escaped the notice of the wider jazz community.

Kim Richmond Concert Jazz Orchestra: Artistry

Read "Kim Richmond Concert Jazz Orchestra: Artistry" reviewed by Jack Bowers


On Artistry, the Kim Richmond Concert Jazz Orchestra pays homage to one of Richmond's former employers, the legendary Stan Kenton, not by rehashing music performed by the Kenton Orchestra--no matter how forward-leaning that may have been--but rather by renovating a few themes associated with Kenton (and quite a few others that weren't) in the manner in ...
