Elijah Shiffer: Star Jelly

Read "Star Jelly" reviewed by Richard J Salvucci

Bobby Sanabria: Vox Humana

Read "Vox Humana" reviewed by Cary Tenenbaum


The opening track on Vox Humana could easily have been the encore of this live performance recorded at Dizzy's Club Coca Cola, part of Jazz At Lincoln Center in New York City.
