Swingadelic: The Other Duke: Tribute To Duke Pearson

Read "The Other Duke: Tribute To Duke Pearson" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Most four-letter words come with a negative connotation attached, but that's not always the case. When big band fans hear the word “Duke" uttered aloud, positive thoughts tend to take over and Duke Ellington immediately comes to mind. His legendary compositions and historic recordings elevated him to the very top of the jazz world, and one ...

Paul Carlon Octet: Roots Propaganda

Read "Roots Propaganda" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

"I am interested in combining all roots music," explains saxophonist, bandleader, composer, and educator Paul Carlon. “Not necessarily to make a point, but because I love it all. So I'm trying to take these disparate elements and put them into a jazz context." Carlon continues, “That was the idea behind Roots Propaganda. We need some propaganda ...

The Paul Carlon Octet: Roots Propaganda

Read "Roots Propaganda" reviewed by Michael P. Gladstone



For his sophomore effort as a leader, multi-reed player Paul Carlon has found quite an interesting project. Roots Propaganda retains most of the musicians from his debut, Other Tongues (Deep Tone, 2006), and also the impression that each track represents a totally different shade of Latin jazz. Although only two albums have been released, ...

The Paul Carlon Octet featuring Ileana Santamaria: Other Tongues

Read "Other Tongues" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Attivo da oltre un decennio sulla scena jazz e latin-jazz di New York, il sassofonista e compositore Paul Carlon raduna per il suo debutto da leader un ottetto privo di nomi altisonanti, ma assolutamente funzionale al tipo di musica proposta in Other Tongues.

The Paul Carlon Octet: Other Tongues

Read "Other Tongues" reviewed by Elliott Simon

Taking exceptional advantage of the octet format, tenor saxophonist Paul Carlon's sophomore effort as a leader, Other Tongues, presents his wide-ranging compositional skills in the context of a lively, Latin-based showcase. Rhumba-tap dancer Max Pollak adds additional rhythmic spice; the exceptional vocal stylings of Ileana Santamaria lend a beauty to this otherwise fairly muscular presentation. Carlon ...
