This episode of OMJ attempts to prove that with sparkling new music from trios (Jason Robinson, Bruno Räberg & Bob Weiner -a definite must on my faves of 2020 list, Cuban/Polish saxophonist Luis ...

Read "Mark Harvey Group, Thumbscrew & Rez Abbasi" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Christophe Monniot & Le Grand Orchestre du Tricot: Jericho Sinfonia
