April is Jazz Appreciation Month! In honor of which, every day during this month I will dig into the archives from my years as a jazz journalist (1987-1994), and post a random jazzy article here in A MUSIC LISTENER’S JOURNAL.

TODAY’S POST: a concert review of The Crusaders–the jazz group whose music was the bridge between the R & B of my youth to the more grownup instrumental music. It was the first article I wrote for THE WIRE, a London-based magazine. (click on image until readable)
