Jason Palmer's Hat-Trick At Giant Step Arts

Read "Jason Palmer's Hat-Trick At Giant Step Arts" reviewed by Pat Youngspiel


Were this a different century, trumpet virtuoso Jason Palmer might have a bigger name--maybe even grace magazine covers beyond the few jazz-focused publications of our times. The North Carolina-born post-bop marvel dresses smart, not in the Superdry-sweater, beanie hat, recyclable coffee mug New York-style one might encounter in the next neighborhood café, but in the last ...

Melissa Aldana: Visions

Read "Visions" reviewed by Serena Antinucci

In Visions (Motéma Music, 2019) ci sono architetture sonore difficili da verbalizzare e, a volte, le parole scompaiono timidamente sommerse dai suoni. ...
