Jeff Lorber: Chemistry in Fusion

Read "Jeff Lorber: Chemistry in Fusion" reviewed by Jim Worsley

I don't know that anyone would confuse Jeff Lorber with a mad scientist, but you know, as they say, if the shoe fits. Lorber is far from mad, so okay, let's take that out of the equation. However, if the art of music can be further developed and shaped by scientific measures then Lorber resembles Albert ...

Jeff Lorber Fusion: Prototype

Read "Prototype" reviewed by Jeff Winbush

Fusion. Is there a dirtier word to the refined ears of the jazz connoisseur? For them the sound of their sacred music mashed up with low-brow rock or common R n' B rhythms must be as harsh and annoying as sharpened nails dragging across a blackboard.

Well, suck it up, buttercups, because Prototype is ...

Read "Tony Kadleck Big Band: Around the Horn" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Tony Kadleck, who has done almost everything one can do on a trumpet, adds the designation big-band leader to his resume with Around the Horn, an impressive debut CD for which he has written all the charts and enlisted a group of the New York area's A-list musicians to interpret them.

Global Noize
A Prayer For The Planet
Lightyear/EMI
2011

Global Noize isn't simply a rather unconventional band. It's also a high concept on a mission. Take a musician with plenty of experience making jazz and pop music (keyboardist Jason Miles), mix in a turntablist (DJ Logic, who knows his way ...

Andy Snitzer: Traveler

Read "Traveler" reviewed by Jeff Winbush

Even without uttering a single word, music can convey many moods, and Traveler, Andy Snitzer's first album in a decade, finds the saxophonist in a reflective mood. The degree of restraint and reserve in Snitzer's playing runs counter to many of his contemporaries, where loud and long soloing is standard operating procedure.

If overplaying can ...
