Madison-based jazz duo The Stellanovas find love for jazz and each other

Published Nov. 13, 2014

For many bands, the health of the group relies on giving one another space when need be. In most cases, that's pretty easy; after all, after practice or a gig, usually everyone can go in their separate directions. That's a little bit difficult for Chris Wagoner and Mary Gaines, the core duo of the Madison-based jazz band The Stellanovas, who celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary this year.

Preservation Hall Jazz Band brings New Orleans flavor to Milwaukee

Published Aug. 26, 2014

For about half of the year, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band calls its New Orleans namesake home, playing bright brassy jazz to the residents of the Big Easy.

Published July 12, 2014

Perhaps it's a bit trite to fall back on the argument of "you weren't the first to..." when it comes to hipsters, but -- like every mind-shattering fact on the Internet -- a Wikipedia page has given us the true origin of the hipster.

After six concerts over three years, Milwaukee Jazz Vision is moving its "Eastside Jazzfest" to Tonic Tavern, the Highbury Pub, Club Garibaldi and Studio Lounge, as the Bay View Jazz Fest makes its debut during Bay View Gallery Night.

Published March 27, 2014

It was 11 years ago today when my mother called me from Milwaukee and told me Ron Cuzner had died that day at 64. I was stunned into a Cuzner-like pregnant-pause silence. I had moved to Madison in 1989, so I lost my close connection to Ron in those pre-radio streaming years. He had spun his last Ellington "Solitude" intro and uttered his last golden catch-phrase. He and his jazz program "The Dark Side" had finally moved on to the light.

Blame it on the Jazz

There is something about jazz that I just don't get.  You may say that it's because I'm not cultured enough but I think I've done a pretty good job at rounding myself out.  I have seen, participated and appreciated opera, jazz, blues and theatre and I've had fine wines and good cigars...
