Montreal Jazz Trio: Montreal Jazz Trio

Read "Montreal Jazz Trio" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

We had the Modern Jazz Quartet, sometimes tagged MJQ, from 1952 until--after a stop and start or two--the early 90's.

Instead, it's the lead-off to Habitat, Jensen's second album with her Jazz Orchestra, a commissioned work for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Jazz Orchestra, its director, Dr. Paul ...

Steve Amirault: One Existence, Two Voices

Read "Steve Amirault: One Existence, Two Voices" reviewed by Pascal-Denis Lussier

Initially, I was disappointed to find out that pianist Steve Amirault was taking this new direction. Jazz singers have never really been my thing. Anyone that knows me knows I have a penchant for the lyric-less stuff--music that breaks all bounds, and language tends to impose extreme restrictions. Nonetheless, despite my own usual preferences, I'm always ...
