Music gifts for Christmas: From Sinatra to Charles Ives" Detroit Free Press


• Tom Harrell, "Roman Nights" (High Note): State-of-the-art post-bop by one of the most vital and visceral working bands in jazz, with Harrell, a poetic composer, trumpeter and flugelhornist, outdoing himself on the title track, an original ballad so pure and touching that it brings tears to the eyes.
