  1. Randy Weston RIP. . .?

    Yes. Reported by Willard Jenkins who authored his biography. We have lost a true legend. I treasure my memories of hearing him play live. RIP Randy LWayne
  2. Tomasz Stanko R.I.P.

    Very sad news. I saw this information posted elsewhere as well. I was fortunate enough to see him live twice. Music much more vibrant than ECM recordings would suggest. LWayne

  7. Australian Jazz

    Saw The Necks locally last year. Two sets of imaginative,improvised, music. Highly recommended! LWayne
  8. Miles Okazaki

    I really enjoyed hearing him play with Jonathan Finlayson and Sicilian Defense last November in Columbus at the Wexner Center. In addition, his album "Trickster" was one of my favorites from last year. Any recommendations about other leader albums in the same vein? He is coming to Pittsburgh with Finlayson again in March. Thanks, LWayne

  11. Willie Pickens - RIP

    What a shame. Another one of the greats. Will be missed. LWayne
  12. Tyshawn Sorey

    I have many CDs where he has been a sideman. Always enjoyed his interactions; particularly with Steve Lehman Octet. Since he has deservedly gained a lot of publicity recently, my question is where to start in his recorded catalogue as a leader? "Verisimilitude" seems to be pretty esoteric from the samples I have heard. Any recommendations? Thanks, LWayne
  13. Richie Cole - Latin Lover

    Saw the group premier the CD last Saturday. They played the album straight through in chronological order. Richie Cole still has a great tone, and it really comes through in a live setting. Enjoyable CD. Agreed that the song selection is "interesting" to say the least. LWayne
