Nathaniel Cross: The Description Is Not The Described

Read "The Description Is Not The Described" reviewed by Chris May

Tenderlonious featuring The 22archestra: The Shakedown

Read "The Shakedown" reviewed by Chris May


In Britain, the incidence of self-taught jazz musicians has declined dramatically over recent decades. Jazz-studies programmes have mushroomed in colleges and more and more young players have been signing up to them. Successful stylists of earlier eras, who may have studied informally with an older musician but who learnt most of their art on the bandstand, ...
