Lage's latest CD elaborates on the singular pan-American chamber jazz approach on his Grammy-nominated debut. More than a nice place to visit, "Gladwell" sounds like a beatific getaway, with plenty of quiet spaces for introspection. Review by Andrew Gilbert for THE BOSTON GLOBE
Rory Block chats with Adam Perimutter from PREMIER GUITAR about her blues education, beloved Martins, and her compositional process.
Renowned jazz pianist Ramsey Lewis has composed songs over the decades of his career — a special piece for a certain performance or a new melody for an album. But in 2005 something changed. Lewis started composing large-scale musical works. Article by Caryn Rosseau for THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
"I pat myself on the back – it took a lot of courage to come here," Eric Clapton said at his show at New York's Rose Hall, glancing and smiling at the men with him on stage: eight members of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, including trumpeter and JALC artistic director Wynton Marsalis.

Any number of fleet-fingered lead guitarists who have steadily dazzled arena audiences would take umbrage at being described as a sideman. Jimmy Herring isn’t one of them. Feature by Dean Budnick for RELIX.
Like a Billy Eckstine or Sarah Vaughan, the jazz characteristics of Elling's art come from his singing more than his song selection. Like them, Elling can improvise a vocal line, placing himself in rare company: the singer who is as much an instrumentalist as the guy on a horn. Article by Jim Trageser for the NORTH COUNTY TIMES.
Last year Del McCoury appeared on The Preservation Hall Jazz Band’s star-studded benefit record Preservation singing “After You’ve Gone.” McCoury’s weathered “high-and-lonesome” voice finds immediate and arresting chemistry with the now 50-year-old Preservation Hall jazz tradition. American Legacies is the happy result.
