The Jussi Lehtonen Quartet Philly Joe's Jazz Bar Tallinn, Estonia July 28, 2021 Philly Joe's Jazz Bar is, somewhat appropriately, situated right on Freedom Square, a key central location in the Estonian capital city of Tallinn.

Kendall Carter: Introducing Kendall Carter

Read "Introducing Kendall Carter" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Listening to Kentucky-bred organist Kendall Carter's debut album, aptly titled Introducing Kendall Carter, is akin to taking a pleasant stroll through a park on a warm and sunny day. While Carter is technically flawless, he doesn't overwhelm the listener with waves of sound but plays organ from a pianist's point of view, sacrificing sheer volume on ...

Ahmad Jamal: Marseille

Read "Marseille" reviewed by Roger Farbey


There are few true jazz legends left alive now let alone still recording albums of the calibre of Marseille. Ahmad Jamal is one such venerable figure and the octogenarian (born July 2, 1930) has recorded an album of consistent brilliance.

Brandi Disterheft: Blue Canvas

Read "Blue Canvas" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


A canvas is often viewed as a neutral starting point, but it needn't be so. Even a so-called “blank" space can be suffused with certain color(s) before brushstrokes are ever applied, as Brandi Disterheft reminds us. Her fourth album is a trio date painted atop, around, over, and with the color blue. It's a work that ...
