Albums Reviewed In Our June Issue

All of our content is now posted online, including reviews for these items, so this column will not be continued… look at the full issue here: June 2018

You’re probably here for Tuba Skinny, that review is here: Tuba Skinny, Stars of the New Orleans Renaissance: Three Albums Reviewed

Hot Jazz Jubile

Here are links to albums reviewed in our June issue so you can purchase them knowing the artists will receive as much as possible. In general we’d prefer you buy the CD so you can enjoy the liner notes, and support the small labels producing such good music. The experience of reading liner notes while listening can be a better education than any reference work and has over time produced many a well informed jazz ear.
