Listener Favorites & DrJ’s Birthday Blowout

Read "Listener Favorites & DrJ’s Birthday Blowout" reviewed by Marc Cohn

It's time for our recurring '5' (as in Show 365) party, listener favorites from Shows 351-360. And a bonus--DrJazz's birthday blowout (we don't usually do this, but this one is a nice round number....'40.' Well, 70 is the new 40?), in which he indulges with some of the tracks that keep his motor running when he's ...

Blue Note 50th Anniversaries: January 1969 & More

Read "Blue Note 50th Anniversaries: January 1969 & More" reviewed by Marc Cohn

We celebrate Blue Note 50th anniversary recordings from Frank Foster (material never formally released until a CD reissue of Manhattan Fever), Lonnie Smith and Horace Silver. Certamente, there's more--including a 75th anniversary salute to sides by clarinetist Edmond Hall with Red Norvo and Teddy Wilson, and a 78 rpm recording of Blue Note 5 by Earl ...

Poetry and Jazz: A Chronology

Read "Poetry and Jazz: A Chronology" reviewed by Duncan Heining

My intention here is to offer a detailed but inevitably incomplete chronology of poetry and jazz. The focus is solely on the combination of the two art forms in performance, not on poetry about jazz or jazz musicians or poetry inspired by jazz but not performed to music. My definition of 'poetry' is fairly broad and ...

Ai Confini tra Sardegna e Jazz Sant'Anna Arresi 1-9.9.2018

Mettendo insieme una buona dose di ironia e di amara verità, il direttore artistico del festival Ai Confini tra Sardegna e Jazz, Basilio Sulis, ama definire Sant'Anna Arresi come Periferia dell'Impero. Da trentatré anni, tuttavia, nella prima settimana di settembre questo lembo di Sardegna ...

Tony Kofi: Point Blank

Read "Point Blank" reviewed by Chris May

British saxophonist Tony Kofi has made a specialism of heritage projects. Among the best of them is the Monk Liberation Front, a band which Kofi co-founded with pianist Jonathan Gee in 2003 and which performs Thelonious Monk's music. The work of Julian Cannonball Adderley is the focus of another venture. An early spin-off from the Front ...

Eric Sierveld: Walk The Walk

Read "Walk The Walk" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

Eric Sierveld's debut outing with the newly formed Organic Quintet is, true to its name, an organ driven affair which shares many similarities with some of the most traditional organ-based endeavors of the past five decades. Even the smoky production values of soaring brass and organ walls clashing with cymbal crashes are present in this production ...

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 C. Michael Bailey

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 ...

Dr Lonnie Smith: Evolution

Read "Evolution" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Inizia col contagioso groove di “Play It Back" il nuovo disco di Lonnie Smith, tornato a incidere con la Blue Note dopo 45 anni d'assenza. L'organista lo scrisse negli anni d'oro dell'hammond B-3, alla fine dei sessanta, ha sempre tenuto il brano in repertorio e oggi lo ripropone nel nuovo gruppo con due batteristi e Robert ...
