The Jazz.com Blog
January 24, 2008 · 0 comments
Jazz.com continues its quixotic but noble pursuit of reviewing all the great - and even not-so-great – jazz tracks recorded since Jelly Roll Morton was in swaddling clothes.
Here is a round-up of a few of the reviews published during the last the ten days. As always, we provide smart and final assessments, and a ranking based on our proprietary 100 point scale. We also include, whenever possible, links for fast (and legal) downloading. And site visitors are can add their own two cents, or even high denomination bills, in the 'comments' section at the bottom of every review.
You can search through all 1,400 reviews in our large (and constantly growing) database by using the search engine in the left sidebar on our Music page.
