Article: Out and About: The Super Fans

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.

Dean Brown: Global Fusion on Acid

Read "Dean Brown: Global Fusion on Acid" reviewed by Jim Worsley


From the outset, the equation was simple enough. Jazz + rock = fusion.

Nick Storring: My Magic Dreams Have Lost Their Spell

Read "My Magic Dreams Have Lost Their Spell" reviewed by Chris May


Now here is a strange one. My Magic Dreams Have Lost Their Spell was conceived and composed by Toronto-based multi-instrumentalist Nick Storring as a homage to Roberta Flack.
