All About Jazz: When We Find Ourselves Alone

August 19, 2014

The Wall Street Journal: Freda Payne “Back to Big Band”

August 04, 2014

Ms. Payne's new album is essentially a return to her roots. The arrangements were done by Bill Cunliffe, and his work deftly captures the flavor of the '60s big-band recordings.

New York Times: Sean Jones Quartet at the Jazz Standard

July 22, 2014

Mr. Jones, 36, was born and raised in northeast Ohio, and while he made his name in New York City — notably during his six years as first-chair trumpeter with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra — he preserved his ties to the region, helping to update a Rust Belt image by virtue of its homegrown jazz scene.
