leave a comment

www.criticaljazz.com About a year ago I reviewed a tribute to Ray Charles that was a train wreck from the start.

Like the other tunes on this entertaining disc, it gives each player plenty of blowing room. It’s a robust reminder of a time when jazz was sociable, and Gold’s light touch makes it cohere.

Well, yes.  Gold has a very vigor ...Read More
