Musician

Reza Khan

Born:

A socially conscious musical citizen of the world, Reza Khan has a long-established history of blazing fresh trails, pushing limits and finding unique ways to redefine what is possible in contemporary jazz. Working with some of the genre’s most revered sidemen, the Bangladesh born and raised, NYC-based composer/guitarist has, since his 2009 debut Painted Diaries, taken a freewheeling approach to creating his dynamic, infectious yet unpredictable fusion of pop, jazz, soul and world music influences. Having scored his first Billboard Top Ten single with “Drop of Faith” from his critically acclaimed fifth album Next Train Home, the most logical approach moving ahead would have been a slick, in the pocket urban/smooth jazz session

The Bill Evans Trio: On A Monday Evening

Read "On A Monday Evening" reviewed by Stefano Merighi


Ricordo interviste in cui Bill Evans puntualizzava l'ossessione per l'esercizio, un'insicurezza stabile, che lo faceva provare in continuazione anche il minimo dettaglio. Sembra grottesco, all'ascolto soltanto del prologo di “Sugar Plum," dove la fraseologia evansiana sgorga come acqua di fonte e dove si intuirebbe un'innata facilità per l'assoluta padronanza strumentale.

Vince Guaraldi: A Charlie Brown Christmas

Read "A Charlie Brown Christmas" reviewed by Marc Davis


A Charlie Brown Christmas is the corniest jazz-Christmas album ever made. And that's OK. It's even good. I know the dig. What Vince Guaraldi played wasn't jazz, it was lounge music. It was sentimental. It was lightweight. It was sappy. Yep. All of that. So what?
