Tim Warfield: Tim Warfield's Jazzy Christmas

Read "Tim Warfield's Jazzy Christmas" reviewed by Edward Blanco

Neil Podgurski's New Fire: Revolutions

Read "Revolutions" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

There's a lot of joy and quirky, off-center energy in pianist Neil Podgurski's playing; his style brings Bud Powell or Elmo Hope to mind. Podgurski is the leader of the group New Fire, and he is also the composer of all the tunes on the band's debut disc, Revolutions.It's great to hear a debut ...
