All Jazz Reviews

Reviews of CDs/albums and gigs of all types of Jazz are listed in alphabetical order, that is, alphabetical by artist's or principal/first named artist's surname, or by band name (ignoring definite or indefinite article), then album title or for gigs, generally event title or venue and date; in the case of "various artists" type compilations, listing is alphabetical by album title (ignoring definite or indefinite article). (Dates are always in international format, i.e., YYYY/MM/DD.)

Each review also presents all factual information available, such as, for albums, release date, label, catalogue number, track list, credits, etc., as well as where possible, information on purchasing e.g. directly from the band/artist where albums are marketed directly.
