Following a long dry spell, we return with new recommendations of three CDs, a DVD and a book. They cover music for a sci-fi adventure champion, the release of a legendary Gerry Mulligan concert in its entirety, the further adventures of a saxophonist who combines power with economy, a film about the ultimate road father, and the life story of a pianist who balances her famous charm and musicianship with understated toughness that has made for a long career.
For a while, you’ll see the recommendations immediately below in the main column. For much longer than that, they will be posted in the right column under Doug’s Picks. To find the item, click on the title.
