The origin of new music featured each week encompasses various branches of jazz, which exudes a wealth of complex and distinctive styles, insinuating textures, immaculate melodies, and relentless rhythms exalted by the definitive voices of creative artists serves up sounds to quench our immutable thirst for quality music.
Featured Album of the Week
Vijay Iyer - Solo (ACT Music, 2010)
Vijay Iyer -][- Solo – [ACT Music, 2010]
ACT Music presents Vijay’s most personal statement yet: a kaleidoscopic solo piano album, his first, presents bold originals alongside works by Ellington and Monk, as well as a reverent take on Michael Jackson’s “Human Nature.” Release date: August 31, 2010. —ACT Music
“Bursting with both emotion and intelligence, this album is a dispatch from the vibrant forefront of jazz”
—The Utne Reader
“even more compelling than its predecessor… Iyer dives deep to find new twists and turns and harmonic surprises; all of them, however radical, sounding ineffably right, all of them glistening with a sense of revealed mystery… magic, from start to finish.” —All About Jazz
