Drummer and composer Tyshawn Sorey has travelled far beyond mainstream jazz through his “new music" composing and collaborations with other cutting edge musicians such as Vijay Iyer and Roscoe Mitchell. Now he confounds expectations by leading a piano trio ...

Evan Sherman: Not Just A Throwback

Read "Evan Sherman: Not Just A Throwback" reviewed by David A. Orthmann
