Ethan Iverson: Technically Acceptable

Read "Technically Acceptable" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

The funhouse genius of pianist Ethan Iverson hits full nor'easter with Technically Accepted, an album so loaded with invention and cool it rises instantly to the pack of hands-down favorites for the still unformed year of 2024. Unbounded, Iverson's many quirks and instigations hurl madly around the house, the studio, the bodega down the ...

Color Red Records: A Label, Sound, and Vision

Read "Color Red Records: A Label, Sound, and Vision" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

When Eddie Roberts, leader of The New Mastersounds, moved to Denver, Colorado, in 2015, he discovered a local music scene that contributed to his vision for a new type of music organization: a label that would be more than a label, producing and releasing music that would be more than (good) music--music that would establish a ...

Meet Clifford Bass

Read "Meet Clifford Bass" reviewed by Tessa Souter and Andrea Wolper

Our newest super fan's first jazz record was The Best of Nat King Cole, which he chose at just ten years old! The bug bit him so hard that, by age 14, he was listening obsessively to A Love Supreme. He is now such a fan of improvisational, in-the-moment performance that he rarely listens to recordings, ...

Meet Kenneth Cobb

Read "Meet Kenneth Cobb" reviewed by Tessa Souter and Andrea Wolper

We suppose it makes sense that our latest Super Fan, a high-level mathematician—a contractor for NASA, no less—would keep meticulous records about, well, everything, from his massive CD and LP collection, to his personal road trip “mix tapes," to every concert he's attended. But applying his mathematical genius to fitting an entire week's worth of music ...

Gary Bartz NTU Troop: Live In Bremen

Read "Live In Bremen" reviewed by Chris May

In the early 1970s there was fusion and there was NTU Troop.

On it, Bartz ...
