John Chacona's Best Releases Of 2020

Read "John Chacona's Best Releases Of 2020" reviewed by John Chacona


It's tempting to say that this was the year the music died, and for clubs, concert and festival stages, that might generally be true.

Here are the releases that most ...

Steph Richards: Supersense

Read "Supersense" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


With all the threatening weirdness and desperate surrealism that has become life in the USA, it makes absolute sense that Supersense, daring trumpeter/composer Steph Richards' third full length album, starts out like an encroaching invasion of ants, or microbes, or a disruptive, divisive, myopic political movement.
