The Chicago Sound (1956 - 1961)

Read "The Chicago Sound (1956 - 1961)" reviewed by Russell Perry

Because it acted as a safe harbor for the New Orleans diaspora of the teens and twenties, Chicago played a key role in early jazz. By the 1950s, much of jazz was understood in the dialog between cool jazz and hard bop, aka West Coast and East Coast, with Los Angeles and New York playing inordinately ...

Eric Dolphy: Musical Prophet: The Expanded 1963 New York Sessions

Read "Musical Prophet: The Expanded 1963 New York Sessions" reviewed by Troy Dostert

Although his iconic Out to Lunch! (Blue Note, 1964) is one of a handful of undisputed avant-garde jazz masterpieces, Eric Dolphy's stature has never quite risen fully to the level of the jazz titans. Some of this is probably due to his untimely death at age 36, just as he was reaching new creative peaks; and ...

Eric Dolphy: Musical Prophet:The Expanded 1963 New York Sessions

Read "Musical Prophet:The Expanded 1963 New York Sessions" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Eric Dolphy's lone Blue Note album, 1964's Out To Lunch! is rightly regarded as a classic but the two records he made for the short-lived Douglas label just before that, Conversations (1963) and Iron Man (1963), have been largely forgotten, due in part to being out-of-print for many years. Now the Resonance label has done something ...

Clifford Jordan: Blowing In

Clifford Jordan: Blowing In

Clifford Jordan doesn't get the attention or praise he deserves. I'm not sure why. The tenor saxophonist was born in Chicago and spent most of his early years there, playing with touring artists who came to town. At age 26, Jordan moved to New York, where he recorded five albums for Blue Note in 1957 and ...
