Music For Ukraine

Read "Music For Ukraine" reviewed by Ian Patterson


Music For Ukraine is a benefit album whose proceeds are intended solely for humanitarian aid in Ukraine. This gargantuan compilation features artists from the roster of Finnish label We Jazz Records. The twenty-six tracks—contemporary jazz for the most part, with the odd foray into modern chamber and electronica-tinged experimentalism—amount to two-and-a-half hours of compelling music. A ...

Mankwe Ndosi, Marc Johnson & Damien Kingston

Read "Mankwe Ndosi, Marc Johnson & Damien Kingston" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

She's from Minneapolis, not that far from Chicago, the home of the AACM, and that's where Ndosi set out to incorporate AACM influences to her African roots ...
