Read "A Night In November - Live in New Orleans" reviewed by Dave Wayne


Hard to believe, but A Night In November--Live in New Orleans is the first drums / saxophone duet recording by legendary New Orleans free jazz saxophonist and educator Kidd Jordan.

Kidd Jordan & Hamid Drake: A Night In November - Live in New Orleans

Read "A Night In November - Live in New Orleans" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


New Orleans is valued for its storied traditional jazz legacy, and not so much for avant-garde persuasions.

Rob Wagner / Hamid Drake / Nobu Ozaki: Trio

Read "Trio" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


Since the post-Hurricane Katrina exodus from New Orleans, the city's fabled music scene parallels the uncertainties of habitation and commerce issues. Here, modern jazz saxophonist Rob Wagner aligns with a killer rhythm section for a set recorded in December of 2005 at the French Quarter's thoroughly hip Café' Brasil.
