Up now on eJazzNews is my review of UK pianist and composer Gwilym Simcock's new release Blues Vignette. Although in the past, I've been a bit of a stuffy purist about what defines jazz or blues -- in the manner of Stanley Crouch -- I've heard so much multi-tradition music over the past few years, I've changed my mind. Sometimes -- in fact, most of the time -- good music is just good music, aesthetics and categories be damned. As to Simcock, he is a gifted musician who has very intentionally and gracefully blended jazz and classical music on a number of levels. The more I listen to Blues Vignette, the more impressed I am.
