Jazz Right Now reviews Sandra Weiss at 65Fen in Brooklyn.

Third Coast Percussion has released an IOS app that allows you to play with the parameters of a Steve Reich composition.

The Peter Brötzmann Quartet will perform in Orlando, Florida on May 10.

The Chicago Reader features and profiles drummer Alison Miller.

DarkMatterHalo will perform with Wadada Leo Smith this August in New York.

And last but not least, a new study concludes that going to concerts can lower one’s stress levels. I suppose that this can depend heavily on the concert and who else is in the audience.
