Gary Bartz NTU Troop: Live In Bremen

Read "Live In Bremen" reviewed by Chris May


In the early 1970s there was fusion and there was NTU Troop.

On it, Bartz ...

Paul Winter Sextet: Count Me In

Read "Paul Winter Sextet: Count Me In" reviewed by Duncan Heining


The Paul Winter Sextet might just be one of the best early sixties groups you never heard. Their story, and that of their leader and altoist Paul Winter's, is certainly one of the most remarkable in jazz. Had some director made a film of the Sextet's short life, jazz buffs would have scoffed at the conceit. ...

Jack DeJohnette: Return

Read "Return" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Bunky Green: Urgency and Continuity

Read "Bunky Green: Urgency and Continuity" reviewed by Anil Prasad


Saxophonist Bunky Green bristles at the idea of playing by the rules. On more than one occasion, the Milwaukee, Wisconsin native was on his way to jazz stardom, but each time his principles guided him elsewhere. This is a significant reason why the highly influential musician has mostly remained unsung and out of the spotlight for ...
