Our favorite work by Albert Ayler – material we love even more than his better-known sides for ESP!

An amazing achievement for Ruben Blades – a full suite of tracks conceived and composed by Ruben as a "disco drama" on wax! The work isn't the disco-styled album you might think from this description – and is more of a mini-opera or concept album by Blades, one that features ... (Latin) read moreCD
Although he's mostly known for his "jazz meets classical" recordings, and to a lesser extent for his soundtrack work, Claude Bolling could also be a pretty great straight jazz pianist when he wanted to.
