Carlos Vega: Bird's Ticket

Read "Bird's Ticket" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Saxophonist Carlos Vega's band crackles. The sound of “A Confluence in Chi-Town," the opener on his Bird's Ticket recording, has an on-the-edge urgency in its distinctive approach to the standard jazz quintet format--bass/drums/keyboard rhythm section and a trumpet and a saxophone--a line up like Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie used.

Vega, a veteran of ...

Roger Ingram: Roger Ingram Live at the College Hideaway with the Jim Stewart Orchestra

Read "Roger Ingram Live at the College Hideaway with the Jim Stewart Orchestra" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello

In 1960, there was a forgettable little movie titled Visit to a Small Planet (1960, Paramount Pictures) starring comedian Jerry Lewis (with an uncredited cameo by drummer, Buddy Rich). In the flick, all sorts of Lewis-looney shenanigans occur. Recently, trumpeter Roger Ingram landed his craft in Niantic, Connecticut and recorded a half-dozen neat cuts live with ...
