I just finished the liner notes for an upcoming Criss Cross Jazz release by trombonist Conrad Herwig. It's called A Voice Through the Door and is set to be released some time in September. Be sure to check it out. It features Ralph Bowen, Orrin Evans, Kenny Davis, and Donald Edwards.
Well, Labor Day weekend is coming up soon and if you're like me, you're thinking Detroit Jazz Festival. It's a great line-up this year with a new festival director. I'll be covering the fest for allaboutjazz.com and posting my photos and review. See the link below for more info.
