Mark Sullivan's Best Releases of 2018

Read "Mark Sullivan's Best Releases of 2018" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


2018 was another year with too many favorites to choose from. I'm struck by the number of “extended ensembles" on my list: groups of eight or more, including a chamber orchestra plus jazz group.

Xavi Reija: Reflections

Read "Reflections" reviewed by Matthew Aquiline


Deviating from his reputation within the realm of boundary-pushing progressive rock/jazz fusion, Catalan drummer and composer Xavi Reija removed the presence of electrified instruments that dominated previous works for an acoustic album that explores the jazz piano trio format.
