Jazz on the Moon

Read "Jazz on the Moon" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu


On 20 July 1969, while Herbie Mann was over the figurative moon, because his Memphis Underground was the best selling jazz album in the country, the man was landing on the actual moon (apologies for the gender insensitivity here but otherwise the pun won't work...).

Michael Bates: Northern Spy

Read "Northern Spy" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Did you ever get a bit envious listening to a recording and thinking the band is having way too much fun making music?
