Read "The Power Station Sessions" reviewed by Jim Worsley

His Big Rhythm Band pulsates through a wide variety of tunes. Not knowing what is coming next can come off as disjointed. But, again, not here. ...

Yako Trio: OdesSea

Read "OdesSea" reviewed by Jim Worsley


Having a wonderful new record from Greece come to the fore is a reminder of how random it all is. There are so many works of brilliance out there, all over the world, that no matter how hard one tries to uncover every stone, it is impossible to come close. It is necessary to be discerning. ...

Daniel Rotem: Wise One: Celebrating The Music of John Coltrane

Read "Wise One: Celebrating The Music of John Coltrane" reviewed by Jim Worsley

If you are familiar with John Beasley's MONK'estra, then you may understand my excitement level at the prospects of seeing and hearing his music in a live show.

Marilyn Scott: The Landscape

Read "The Landscape" reviewed by Jim Worsley

ARC Trio and the John Daversa Big Band: ARCeology: The Music of MSM Schmidt

Read "ARCeology: The Music of MSM Schmidt" reviewed by Jim Worsley


What would happen if fusion, already a hybrid of musical genres, was compounded with the sound of big-band? Further, that both genres were stretched well outside the box?

Vincent Peirani: Jokers

Read "Jokers" reviewed by Jim Worsley
