Profeti della Quinta, Elam Rotem The Carlo G Manuscript: Virtuoso liturgical music from the early 17th century Glossa Records 2016 One gets to the point where only the most obscure music is satisfying. Enter The Carlo G Manuscript. The only thing this story lacks is murder and a donkey. About 15 years ago, a portfolio now known as the “Carlo G Manuscript" was purchased at a Vienna yard sale for the equivalent of $65. This ...

The duet performance format is pretty naked. There is little place to hide for the two instrumentalists taking part in the delicate discourse that is making music. The following are five approaches trying to make the cut of creativity. Patrice Williamson & Jon Wheatley Comes Love: A Tribute to Ella Fitzgerald and Joe Pass Self Produced 2017 Ella Fitzgerald has been the object of recent homage attention in Jane Monheit's Songbook Sessions: Ella ...

Blues Men – Johnny Mastro, Ray Fuller, Lew Jetton, Billy T, Chris Antonik

Read "Blues Men – Johnny Mastro, Ray Fuller, Lew Jetton, Billy T, Chris Antonik" reviewed by

According to Digital Music News, as of 2015, Rhythm & Blues / Hip Hop made up 22% of the recording market (Jazz and Classical make up but 2% each, go figure). I am pretty sure that straight blues is simply folded into the R&B category since I can find no mention of blues alone in my cited reference. That said, like in jazz, the number of people recording blues is far more than that being sold. That is staying power ...

Men have no monopoly on having or playing the blues. Here are five women serious about their music. Lazy Eye Live at Chapel Lane Self Produced 2016 Live at Chapel Lane is a nice left turn on the greasy archetype of the guitar-organ jazz trio.

Jazz Trios. A variety of flavors... Free Nelson Mandoom Jazz The Organ Grinder RareNoise Records 2016 Free Nelson Mandoomjazz is not exactly your posterchild for traditional jazz trios, nominally comprised of wind player Rebecca Sneddon, bassist Colin Stewart and drummer Paul Archibald. <em>Organ Grinder</em> is a recording happily in the mode of UB40's completely mood-altering <em>Signing Off</em> (Graduate Records, 1980). &#147;Mood altering" in the sense that the music's effect is hypnotic ...

Organ Grinder Swing–Adrienne Fenemor, Little Charlie, Matthew Kaminski, Music Soup, King Louie & LaRhonda Steele

Read "Organ Grinder Swing–Adrienne Fenemor, Little Charlie, Matthew Kaminski, Music Soup, King Louie & LaRhonda Steele" reviewed by

There are certain things that evoke memory more than smells and sound. Unfiltered Lucky Strike cigarettes, just lit, make me think of my dad's office in the 1960s. Unfiltered Lucky Strike cigarettes, iced-cold Budweiser in the bottle, and organ jazz and blues, make me think of what dark, urban dives should smell, taste and sound like in the same period. Whether it is the southern chittlin' circuit or Mel's Colbalt Club in the upper 140s this is music for the ...
