Favorite Reissue:

Matt Merewitz describes himself as “writing from the bottom of the rung of jazz journalism. I’ve been writing for over a year now and never been paid for an article. I hope that changes soon. I’m in the world of college radio as a DJ and genre director at a station that has a ridiculous amount of jazz that doesn’t get played often enough (Carnegie Mellon University). I am honored to have my picks featured in this listing. Hope you dig on what you’ve heard and dig deeper what you haven’t.”
