An interview with Senegalese singer, Baaba Maal. One of jazz's leading critics and historians looks back on his life and times, while Woody Allen's New Orleans band stomps through standards on tour in London. Kat'a Kabanova at the Met is reviewed in the FT (via New York City Opera Fanatic). How much damage has the Pavarotti phenomenon done to classical music? Elvis Costello, Jamie Cullum and a gaggle of other musicians choose their records of the year. Finally, a reminder of my own choices in the Sunday Times, in case anyone is looking for a last-minute New Year's gift.
