Craig Buhler: Skykomish

Read "Skykomish" reviewed by Edward Blanco


Reed man Craig Buhler, an educator by profession, is in every sense of the definition a West Coast jazz musician.

Craig Buhler: Skykomish

Read "Skykomish" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


On Capistrano Sessions (Discernment Music, 2007), saxophonist/arranger Craig Buhler boldly updated the sound of West Coast Cool, effectively making him the heir proper to composer Marty Paich.

Craig Buhler: Capistrano Sessions

Read "Capistrano Sessions" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
