The magical voice from South Korea: With the album IMMERSION the Korean singer YOUN SUN NAH breaks new ground and combines the intensity of the vocals with the expressive power of jazz, rock, folk and the claim of great songs. MMERSION is a stylistically diverse album, an immersion into many worlds, from the ASTURIAS Andalusian Classics to the Motown carefree YOU CAN NOT HURRY LOVE and the

Based on 33 years of scholarship and promotion by the Istituto Nazionale Tostiano and a lifetime of studies on the part of Francesco Sanvitale, this volume lives up to its predecessors in bringing to wider attention the work of a born songsmith, at home in the English and French tongues as well as his native Italian, and one who brought the genre of salon song to a peak of perfection. No one, not

Bassist Nenad Vasilic has made the themes and rhythms of his home region of Serbia, but also of the whole Balkans, an essential part of his musical concept. In conjunction with elements of contemporary jazz music, he developed over time an independent variety of European world jazz. "Bass Room" is a pure bass album, recorded and recorded in "real time" - only on the bass. With his "Cosmopolitan

After many years and many permutations, GYPSY MEETS INDIA reunites the current music of these two rich musical cultures once again.

A stunning collage of improvisations, standards and originals from one of today's more accomplished and innovative pianists… Pianist Luis Perdomo goes solo on this lyrical and flowing album that mixes original themes with some richly interpreted covers. His heart is in the Latin Quarter, with his reading of “Si Te Contrara” and “Mambo Mongo” filled with percolated rumblings and pulses. He does a

Sensitivity and sadness are often known to link hands, but it’s usually not done out of love, less a public display of affection and more like a necessary, binding union. Sensitivity doesn’t always equal an automatic brand of sadness, but on Patterns (Repeat), where David Wenngren’s piano shines upon a lake of black silk, illuminated by nothing more than the pale light of the moon, the two not

Josep Colom’s latest album includes Beethoven’s legendary last three piano sonatas (Opp. 109-111) and Bonn genius’ latest piano work, the Bagatelles op.126. Colom’s original and exceptional vision brings out a fresh and different view on Beethoven’s masterpieces, one which creates a single narrative path to weave together the individual movements of these three sonatas and the six bagatelles by

An aspect of the jazz music business that tends to be ignored is touring. There are only so many venues with budgets and booking agents. Artists who manage to find both are either popular sensations or lucky, especially in a country as spread out and diverse as the United States. It takes a lot of motivation, courage and a devil-may-care attitude to strike out on the road on your own. Brass

"Recorded live in the South of France as part of the ""Moondog Season"", the new album from the 13-member Neo-Bigband, Initiative H, highlights the work ""Sax Pax for a Sax"" by composer Moondog, originally recorded by the London Saxophonic in 1994. The arranger and bandleader, David Haudrechy, pays tribute to ""Viking of Sixth Avenue"" with this quivering homage to the magistral work and thus
