    EARS NEW YORK: Live From San Francisco

    If one believes that New York and San Francisco are America's great cultural bookends (with all points in between, Reader's Digest - rim shot, please...), then the news from the Left Coast is monumental. Rising up through the fog, alongside the Golden Gate towers and the Golden State beacon that is the City Lights Bookstore, comes news of a spanking new building dedicated to jazz  - the SFJazz Center, a counterweight to New York's Jazz at Lincoln Center. The ribbon-cutting ceremonies took place on January 21.

    EARS NEW YORK: SUNKEN CONDOS

    Written by Jeff Levenson

    Donald Fagen's latest, Sunken Condos, might be his (and Steely Dan's) strongest record since 1982's The Nightfly. It finds Fagen confidently crafting his idiosyncratic take on jazz-rock - harmonic twists, infectious grooves, Beat-inspired narrators chorusing about life on the fringe.

It is a guitar-driven detour that finds Wilson making music for a label other than Blue Note. After a 20-year run spanning eight records (including "Blue Light 'Til Dawn," which came to be regarded among jazz vocalists as a game-changer in both style and repertoire), she has changed her home address.

    EARS NEW YORK: JAZZ LIVES 2012

    Written by Jeff Levenson

    Toronto, Ontario (April 25th, 2012) - Assembling high-octane talent on one stage is usually the province of dedicated presenters and promoters whose simple aim is to put on a show. Introduce too many moving parts, and there's a good chance that some unexpected rattle will shake or roll down the production. The wheels fall off, the train runs amok, skid marks, scorched earth, children in tears... Oh, the humanity.
