Bob Berg: Remembering Bob Berg

Read "Remembering Bob Berg" reviewed by John Kelman

When saxophonist Bob Berg was tragically killed in December, 2002 at the age of 51, he'd just recorded two projects that would demonstrate just how passionate and far-reaching a contemporary post bop player he was. On one hand, trumpeter Eddie Henderson's So What (Eighty-Eights, 2003) was built on the kind of atmospheric and open-ended approach of Miles Davis' mid-1960s quintet with Wayne Shorter--a seminal influence on Berg. On the other hand, on vibraphonist Joe Locke's 4 Walls of Freedom (Sirocco ...

Bob Berg, Randy Brecker, Dennis Chambers, Joey DeFrancesco: The JazzTimes

Read "The JazzTimes" reviewed by Jim Santella

When a tune has a catchy sound to it, the melody lingers on. Paul Bollenback, Randy Brecker, Joey DeFrancesco and Bob Berg each contribute memorable compositions to this album; compositions that catch your ear and leave you happy to hear them again. Berg placed his tune “Friday Night at the Cadillac Club" on two previous albums as well as on Dizzy Gillespie’s 1992 Rhythmstick album. The piece works. Like Brecker’s “The Ada Strut" and Eddie Harris’ “Freedom Jazz Dance," Berg’s ...

Bob Berg: Another Standard

Read "Another Standard" reviewed by Robert Spencer

“In order for a tune to become a standard," says Karen Bennett in her liner notes, “it has to have enough appeal and substance to keep both musician and listener engaged on many levels for many years." Late Miles alumnus Bob Berg's Another Standard asserts that status for a lineup of familiar but not front-line tunes: “You and the Night and the Music," “Summer Wind," the Beatles' almost unrecognizable “Michelle," “Just in Time," “My Man's Gone Now" from Porgy and ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
