With “Baby Coffee” topping the BILLBOARD jazz charts, Michael J Thomas’ DRIVEN LP is a no-brainer. It’s even better on vinyl, a format few (Chris Alvarado, Gileah Taylor, and that’s about it) Beachcomberland musicians have ventured into. You’ve done us all proud, MJT.
C.J. Tudor’s debut novel THE CHALK MAN skillfully jumps between past and present with a grisly 30-year-old murder at its center. The seemingly endless twists are reminiscent of Harlan Coben, pages before Ms. Tudor drops the bestselling author’s name.
