Terry Trotter: I Play the Piano Blu-ray Review

Terry Trotter, a real musician's musician, gives us a thoroughly enjoyable jazz piano recital that demonstrates why he has been in great demand for decades. AIX Records' recording team gives an excellent account of Trotter's Steinway to boot.

AC Timba Jazz: Neurosis Blu-ray Review

A group of talented musicians gives us four of the late Juan Sanchez Oliva's dance-inflected Afro-Cuban jazz. These are well recorded pulse-pounding numbers and the beat will get you.

Emin: After the Thunder Blu-ray Review

This debut CD/BD set from Emin Algarov, a young European-based singer, contains thirteen tracks, mostly penned by Emin himself, of which six are Blu-ray music videos with high-def audio. Emin has a pleasing voice, but these romantic ballads of love and loss are all quite similar and do not stand out from what is currently hitting the airwaves.

Ernest Ranglin: Order of Distinction Blu-ray Review

An exceptional studio recording of the grand old man of Jamaican ska music, Ernest Ranglin, who is assisted by a premier group of sidemen. Top notch audio and video recording makes for a memorable 60 minutes.

BNO: Here & There, Vol. II Blu-ray Review

AIX Records gives us a studio concert featuring some of the best bluegrass players around and cameo appearances by Albert Lee and Nathan Mceuen. Sonics are darn good but visuals come up a bit short in detail and color palette.

Wallace Roney: Stand Blu-ray Review

Wallace Roney, a lineal descendant of Miles Davis, gets his fellow musicians to deliver a terrific study in bebop. Great sound and decent picture give us an insider's view of what makes for great jazz.

James Walker and Free Flight feat. Bryan Pezzone: Threads Blu-ray 3D Review

Threads from James Walker and Free Flight's Threads, featuring the pianist Bryan Pezzone, is another superbly played and recorded release from audiophile label AIX Records.
