Daniel Smith: Jazz Suite for Bassoon

Read "Jazz Suite for Bassoon" reviewed by Jack Bowers

This one is far more agreeable, for at least two reasons: first, the territory Smith traverses seems to be relatively more familiar (especially the “Baroque Adaptations") and, second, he manages to play squarely ...

Resonance Records: Non-Profit Jazz Label with a Mission

Read "Resonance Records: Non-Profit Jazz Label with a Mission" reviewed by Samuel Chell


It's a story often heard before: musically, these are the best and worst of times. Only this time, in 2010, it seems different. Even as the pool of fresh talent expands, jazz continues to witness a dearth of venues along with the slump in CD sales.
