Michael Lauren: Give My Regards To Portugal

Read "Michael Lauren: Give My Regards To Portugal" reviewed by Jim Worsley

From Broadway to jazz to Portugal. A circuitous route for sure. One that has, however, served international musician Michael Lauren well. The now seventy-year- old multi-styled drummer came out of the womb with a kick pedal and has been holding down a symphony of beats ever since. Over the years he has played or recorded with ...

Julian "Cannonball" Adderley: Swingin' in Seattle, Live at the Penthouse 1966-1967

Read "Swingin' in Seattle, Live at the Penthouse 1966-1967" reviewed by Luca Canini

Un imperdibile e prezioso inedito. Settanta minuti di musica mai ascoltati prima che arrivano dritti dritti dalla seconda metà degli anni Sessanta. Un periodo cruciale per Julian Cannonball Adderley e il suo quintetto, freschi di approdo alla californiana Capitol, etichetta con le spalle decisamente più larghe e molto meno “ortodossa" rispetto alla newyorchese Riverside, e lanciati ...

Read "Cannonball" reviewed by Rob Rosenblum

Jay Thomas: We Always Knew

Read "Jay Thomas: We Always Knew" reviewed by Paul Rauch

Legacy is a fleeting notion. It is incomprehensible in real time when a career hits high points, when certain doors open to quantitative opportunity. Jay Thomas can tell you a thing or two about that, based on his own personal experience as a jazz artist over half a century. His story includes playing on the Seattle ...

Stefon Harris & Blackout: Sonic Creed

Read "Sonic Creed" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

In its most basic function, the music that makes up Sonic Creed serves as a mirror to African American life in the here and now. It explores the history, legacy, struggles, and joys of the Black community, speaking to all of it at once through sound and sentiment.

Sonic Creed arrives almost a ...

David Ricard Big Band: Parallels

Read "Parallels" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Whatever else the fates may decree, fortune must be smiling when one can open a big-band album with the workaday theme from “Spider-Man" and make it shine. Bassist David Ricard is fortune's beneficiary here, as are those partisans who are lucky enough to chance upon Parallels, Ricard's third and most recent treatise on big-band excellence. Whereas ...
