After a touring absence of more than 25 years, the potent jazz-rock flagship quartet edition of Return to Forever returns in 2008

Greg Byers: Take A Bow

Read "Greg Byers: Take A Bow" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Greg Byers does not like hearing that something is not possible. Or perhaps he does, for the cellist seems to thrive on challenges that others deem impossible or unrealistic. Taking a jazz major in cello? It just isn't done, he was told. Well, ticked that box. Learning Charlie Parker's solos on upright bass? ...

Jack DeJohnette: Sorcery

Read "Sorcery" reviewed by Scott Gudell
