The Nimmons Tribute: Volume 1 - To The Nth

Read "Volume 1 - To The Nth" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Linda Carone: So Many Beautiful Men, So Little Time

Read "So Many Beautiful Men, So Little Time" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

That's certainly true of Octet Vol. 2, the second recording by Canada's Dave Young / Terry Promane ensemble. That does not mean, however, that the ...

Carn Davidson 9: Murphy

Read "Murphy" reviewed by Jack Bowers


The “Carn" in Carn Davidson 9 is trombonist William, the “Davidson" saxophonist Tara. They are Canadians, as are the other seven members of their Toronto-based ensemble. They are also first-class musicians, an assessment that applies as well to everyone in the Carn Davidson 9. This is apparently the second album by the nonet, ...
