A slightly different album than usual from saxophonist David Binney – a set that still features plenty of the leader's great work on alto sax, but which also includes a few electric textures, and sampled sonic moments – elements used sparely, on short tracks before the main instrumental ...

A great setting for the saxophone sound of Seamus Blake – a cool little group that features some angular guitar lines from Lage Lund, which make for a surprisingly great match for Blake's tones on tenor and soprano sax! Other players include David Kikoski on piano, Matt Chohesy on bass, and ... (Jazz) read moreCD

A beautiful album from bassist Matt Brewer – a set that's got a very rich sense of tonal color and melody, but served up in some slightly unusual ways! Matt's bass is a key part of the record, as is his great songwriting – but the overall sound draws plenty from the balance between the ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Bold work from pianist Orrin Evans – a player we grow to love more and more with each new record! Evans has always been great, but in recent years he's really perfected a special style of his own – a way of pushing forth and fluttering fleet notes out with effortless ease – ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A great date that also features Woody Shaw on trumpet – Kenny Garrett's first set as a leader on alto, with tight rhythm from Mulgrew Miller on piano, Nat Reeves on bass, and Tony Reedus on drums!

An overlooked killer from Slide Hampton – an 80s date with long tracks and plenty of soul – and one of Hampton's few small combo sets of the time!

Lovely stuff from jazz pianist David Hazeltine – much deserving of his reputation as an stellar accompanist and sensitive interpreter – and also a excellent composer and leader! There's a trio of excellent Hazeltine originals on Inversions, including the excellent title track, the ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A stunner of a trio set – led by pianist Ethan Iverson, working with one of his heroes and a bonafide legend in bass player Ron Carter, and the always compelling Nasheet Waits on the drums! The group dynamic is solid, but there are some really nice moments with just Iverson's piano, too, ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A beautifully-balanced trio effort from pianist Dave Kikoski – one that's still strongly directed by his work on the keys of the piano, but which also draws equal energy from the bass of Christian McBride and drums of Jeff Tain Watts! With two players like that along for the ride, you can ... (Jazz) read moreCD

Pianist David Kikoski has added his talents to many great groups over the years – but the man himself always seems completely on fire when he's out front on his own – as on this wonderful trio set with Joe Martin on bass and Justin Faulkner on drums!

Bassist Boris Kozlov works here wonderfully alongside the guitar of David Gilmore – in a trio setting that has both of the string players trading lines over deft work on drums from Rudy Royston! Royston's nicely laidback and open – and really lets both musicians handle melody and ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Although Marsh first came onto the scene as a modernist in the 50s, he's one of the few players of his generation who really held strong to his initial sound, continuing to craft records of understated genius for years to come. And while this album's not his best-ever, it's certainly a nicely ... (Jazz) read moreCD

A tribute to the music of Thelonious Monk, but one that's got plenty of Tim Warfield's own spirit as well! Orrin Evans handles the piano here, and while he's certainly equipped to bring out the angularity of Monk's music, he's got his own way of approaching the tunes that are nicely fresh – ...
