MUSICIAN Born:

Dave Brubeck

Brubeck's mother studied piano in England and intended to become a concert pianist; at home she taught piano for extra money. Brubeck was not particularly interested in learning by any particular method, but preferred to create his own melodies, and therefore avoided learning to read sheet music. In college Brubeck was nearly expelled when one of his professors discovered that he could not read sheet music. Several of his professors came forward arguing for his ability with counterpoint and harmony, but the school was still afraid that it would cause a scandal, and only agreed to let Brubeck graduate once he promised never to teach piano

Steve Fidyk: Battle Lines

Read "Battle Lines" reviewed by David A. Orthmann

Battle Lines, the inaugural release of Steve Fidyk's Blue Canteen Music label, bears the stamp of a rhythm section capable of adroitly assuming multiple identities. During large portions of three amiable, bop-oriented tracks, “Bebop Operations," “#Social Loafing" and “Sir John," Fidyk's drums, bassist Michael Karn and pianist Peter Zak move the music along without any fuss ...

“No Instruction Sheet": Trout Mask Replica's Unfathomable Origin Story If you were a teenager who liked freaky stuff, on a June day in 1969 you could bicycle down to your local record store and buy a brand-new, shrink- wrapped album with a man covering his entire face with an actual fish head on the cover. A ...

Bite-Sized Morsels

Read "Bite-Sized Morsels" reviewed by Geno Thackara

In among the more usual full-length offerings (arguably one ideal standard for collections of music), it's also good not to overlook the appeal of servings in smaller sizes...

A Jazz Immuno-Booster: Part 2

Read "A Jazz Immuno-Booster: Part 2" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

Our sequestration continues. But so does this mix-tape series featuring music selected by jazz musicians to whom we have asked to share one song they rely on when they need to be uplifted, or soothed, and to make us fly beyond the walls that keep us protected from the greatest pandemic of our generation.

Jazzmeia, Newk, Bird, Dave & More

Read "Jazzmeia, Newk, Bird, Dave & More" reviewed by Marc Cohn

Showtime, don't ya know? Jazzmeia Horn was scheduled to perform in Baton Rouge recently, but the gig got 'coronaed.' So, we do a mini-concert here, and hope she can reschedule when this plague dissipates. Shoot, they even cancelled the St. Patrick's Day parade here; so you know this is serious business. We also continue centennial celebrations ...

Eldar Djangirov: Rhapsodize

Read "Rhapsodize" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Eldar Djangirov... None other than Dave Brubeck declared him a genius. Dr. Billy Taylor called his music a “brilliantly complex discipline." So, when inevitably asked who the masters of their craft may or may not be, does Eldar Djangirov immediately roll off anyone's tongue? More than likely not. And, with more than a handful ...
