Upping the Ante
The feature article in the October edition of Jazz Times Magazine showcases forty essential jazz solos as chosen by musicians and contributors to the magazine. I have selected six from the forty, each featuring a different instrument. Everything from the "build a house in under five minutes" frenzy of John Coltrane to the restrained elegance of Miles Davis. Some of the greatest jazz artists of all time, who have had a profound effect on the next generations of musicians.

It's what I play!
