9th Review: Ben Williams-Coming of Age

Ben Williams's second full length album, "Coming of Age," was released in 2015 to pretty remarkable reviews from various jazz critics. Williams infuses elements of R&B/neo-soul, fusion, post-bop, funk, and hip-hop into his innovative compositions. The 31-year old Washington D.C. upright bass player, Ben Williams, sheds a new prominent voice in the rising jazz scene

2nd Music Review: Take Me To The Alley–Gregory Porter

My second album review is a late discovery of the 2016 Blue Note Grammy Award winning record, Take Me To The Alley by Gregory Porter. The Brooklyn, NYC resident delivers a remarkable album full of ballads and jazz tunes full of love and tribulations. Porter's voice is like a hot heater warming your body on a frigid winter's evening.
