Read "Apparent Distance" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Taylor Ho Bynum Sextet: The Middle Picture

Read "The Middle Picture" reviewed by Troy Collins


Tying together conceptual threads from his previous releases, The Middle Picture is cornetist Taylor Ho Bynum's most fully realized album to date. Making good on the promise of prior efforts, Bynum incorporates the relaxed spontaneity of his duet with drummer Tomas Fujiwara, True Events (482 Music, 2007), and the studied intricacy of his formal composing skills ...
