Charles Rumback: Cadillac Turns

Read "Cadillac Turns" reviewed by Troy Dostert

Drummer Charles Rumback has cultivated his melodically-informed sensibility on a number of fine records.

The album at hand, Cadillac Turns, is much the same, although now in a quartet format with James Singleton ...

Read "Charles Rumback, Kuzu and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Read "Dogs" reviewed by Doug Collette

The wit in the name of Nolatet finds a direct reflection in the music they make. Yet together as a four piece unit, keyboardist Brian Haas (Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey), vibraphonist Mike Dillon (Critters Buggin,' Garage A Trois), bassist James Singleton (John Scofield, John Medeski) and drummer Johnny Vidacovich (Charlie Hunter, Robert Walter), create a seamless ...
