ARC Trio and the John Daversa Big Band: ARCeology: The Music of MSM Schmidt

Read "ARCeology: The Music of MSM Schmidt" reviewed by Jim Worsley


What would happen if fusion, already a hybrid of musical genres, was compounded with the sound of big-band? Further, that both genres were stretched well outside the box? An ensemble of bright musical minds came together on just such a project. The results could have been the disastrous soup of too many cooks in the kitchen or, perhaps, something special and creative. Fortunately, they served up an entree which is very much the latter. It starts with quality ...

Dolby ATMOS: Now HEAR This

Read "Dolby ATMOS: Now HEAR This" reviewed by Jim Worsley


I almost entitled this “A Vacation For Your Ears." Seemed a bit wordy, although surely accurate. An invitation to Studio1LA from owners and masters of immersive engineering Karma Auger (yes he is Brian Auger's son) and Erich Gobel (pictured left to right, respectively) was accepted with high expectations. Auger, the drummer, and Gobel, the guitarist, bring a musician's vibe and outlook to their projects. The thought of twelve separate channels being filtered into twelve separate speakers has a way of ...

Jimmy Haslip: Nightfall

Read "Nightfall" reviewed by Jim Worsley


A previous Jimmy Haslip and Joe Vannelli record entitled Red Heat (Blue Canoe, 2020) was a sizzling and heartfelt creation born out of Haslip's profound love and admiration for his father. He would have shouted that from a mountain top (perhaps he did). Red Heat was a double-edged sword of pride and accomplishment. The strength and inspiration for Nightfall was never blasted off a rooftop. Haslip's young daughter had a life-threatening medical problem that, understandably, was kept close ...

Jimmy Haslip: Red Heat

Read "Red Heat" reviewed by Jim Worsley


Music is our universal language. A message can be conveyed spiritually to a multitude of cultures and processed at innumerable human levels. Red Heat (originally released in 2000) is a rare and priceless gem that engages the masses with purely relatable emotions and feelings. It targets and strikes your core with purposeful marksmanship. This moving tribute to James Haslip (Jimmy Haslip's father) begins with the high-octane blast of “Los Feliz." The powerful undertow of the Caribbean flows through ...

Jimmy Haslip/Scott Kinsey/Gergo Borlai: ARC Trio

Read "ARC Trio" reviewed by Jim Worsley


A distant relative of Jimmy Haslip's first record as a leader, Arc (GRP, 1993), Arc Trio is a breath of fresh air. The core trio of Haslip, Scott Kinsey, and Gergo Borlai intelligently reimagine the fusion genre. While embracing essential elements of fusion past, they bring an enlightened vision to the epicenter as well as a broad spectrum of well-rooted branches. Each song feeds seamlessly into the next in a presentation that is intended to be captured in its entirety. ...

Jimmy Haslip: Amperes Beyond the BASSics, Part 2

Read "Jimmy Haslip: Amperes Beyond the BASSics, Part 2" reviewed by Jim Worsley


In case you missed it, Part One of my conversation with Jimmy Haslip covered a lot of ground and had a few good laughs along the way. Although we talked about the Yellowjackets, we delved more deeply into why and how he parted ways with the band some eight years ago. Haslip has been producing records for a number of years now. We spoke about the “other side of the glass'" and specifically about a few of those projects. Allan ...
