Jason Rigby

Born:

Jason Rigby is an assured New York-based musician whose jazz mixes conventional and “outside” improvisation in stirring fashion.

After multiple replays the code remains unbroken. It seems something important is going on but... what exactly? It is rather like encountering Guiliana's fellow New Yorker, tenor saxophonist Oded Tzur ...

Mike Holober & Balancing Act: Don't Let Go

Read "Don't Let Go" reviewed by Jack Bowers
