Jon Crowley: I Walk Amongst Humans

Read "I Walk Amongst Humans" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello

There are recordings that seem to be made for the practice of looking out a window on a rainy day. “I Walk Amongst the Humans" by trumpeter Jon Crowley accurately fits that bill. It is a recording which exhibits a poetic nature through thought-provoking originals that are a platform for fine group interplay and superb improvisations. ...

Michael Eaton: Individuation

Read "Individuation" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

No Future Without New Fans

Read "No Future Without New Fans" reviewed by John Beaty

The Stretch Movement's main goal is to build a new young audience. This seems like it should be an obvious statement, but jazz has ignored the fact that new young listeners are not flocking to the music.

The State of Jazz Education

Read "The State of Jazz Education" reviewed by John Beaty

For my entire childhood, up through the moment I graduated high school, I was told of the importance of the SAT Reasoning Tests and attending college. I believe this was a message my entire generation heard from our parents, teachers, and society at large. While I was in eighth grade, I was introduced to jazz and ...
