Jazz Is in the (H)air!

Read "Jazz Is in the (H)air!" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu


Inspired by Head Full of Hair, Heart of Full of Song, Pyeng Threadgill's investigation in music about the role of hair in her life, family, community and throughout the African diaspora, this episode of Mondo Jazz builds a narrative about hair, because --whether it's a braided bun or flowing tendrils --hair has always mirrored the cultural ...

Slow Poke: At Home [MP 3]

Read "At Home [MP 3]" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Slow Poke: At Home

Read "At Home" reviewed by Troy Collins


Slow Poke was a unique band, even among the fertile late nineties Downtown (New York) scene. Gradually warming to neo-classical formalism, various Downtown line-ups began incorporating traditional elements into their compositions, progressively moving beyond their No Wave roots by embracing a more traditional aesthetic.
