Maria Neckam: Unison

Read "Unison" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian


Vienna native and New York-based vocalist, composer and lyricist Maria Neckam is one of those rare artists whose work is accessible without being ordinary, and cerebral without being abstruse.

Maria Neckam: Unison

Read "Unison" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Gideon Van Gelder: Perpetual

Read "Perpetual" reviewed by Mark F. Turner


By implementing diverse styles without being confined to any particular one, pianist Gideon Van Gelder provides stimulation for the mind and ear with Perpetual.
