Top Ten Tracks from 2019 to help You Get Through The Day

Read "Top Ten Tracks from 2019 to help You Get Through The Day" reviewed by Nick Davies

As 2019 passes into 2020 it is a time to look back at some of the best records from the previous year. 2019 saw some very good jazz releases many of which were featured on the Crazeology Radio Show and it was really hard to decide a top ten. After many hours of deliberating with records ...

Randy Brecker: Rocks

Read "Rocks" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

The easiest answer isn't always the best answer, but sometimes it is. So it's both easy and proper to point out that trumpet and flugelhorn master, composer, and bandleader Randy Brecker was kind enough to simultaneously review his release with the NDR Bigband, the Hamburg Radio Jazz Orchestra, when he titled it Rocks.

4 Wheel Drive: 4 Wheel Drive

Read "4 Wheel Drive" reviewed by Geno Thackara

It may not quite be the loud and fast thrill-ride one might guess from the title, but that doesn't mean it lacks a few fun twists and turns.

4 Wheel Drive: 4 Wheel Drive

Read "4 Wheel Drive" reviewed by Phillip Woolever

Sometimes it's not so much who's doing the playing as how well they play together.
