Customer Reviews


How can this be called a "Contemporary" list with guys on it like Miles Davis, Joe Zawinul, Wayne Shorter, Alice Coltrane, Jimmy Smith, and Herbie Hancock? Don't these musicians that were established in the 60's have there own category? If you sift through these, you will find today's jazz stars. What you won't find is what's going on in today's truly "new" jazz scene, the next stars. To find this talent, you must set down your issue of Downbeat and look to more progressive places like blogs or radio stations that play new artists.
