Kabadayas: IV

Read "IV" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski

IV--the exciting debut from an international quartet founded by its ferocious rhythm section of bassist Djole Maksimovski and drummer Dino Milosavljević--represents a fairly strong start. The group thrives on the cohesive whole, playing as one but in a state of continual conversation. As the name itself suggests--"kabadaya" is local Macedonian archaic jargon for swagger(s)--the musicians do ...

The Erroll Garner Trio: The Greatest Garner

Read "The Greatest Garner" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Erroll Garner imperturbably played more or less the same piano style throughout his career, blending jazz and pop with a bounce and grin. When he rocks a tempo hard, as on this version of “Confessin,’” he nearly sounds the second coming of Fats Waller, completely free from the bebop influence felt by many of Garner’s piano ...

The Ornette Coleman Quartet: Ornette!

Read "Ornette!" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Saxophonist Coleman recorded Ornette! about a month after his milestone Free Jazz sessions, retaining bassist Scott LaFaro, drummer Ed Blackwell, and the amazing Don Cherry on pocket trumpet. Four tracks, each titled with an acronym, from the original 1962 release are supplemented by a fifth, “Proof Readers,” for this reissue.

Ornette! uniquely blends musical ...

Anita Baker: The Best of Anita Baker

Read "The Best of Anita Baker" reviewed by Daniel Garrett

On The Best of Anita Baker, the singer goes from singing that “love like ours is heaven sent, each day a day to remember” in the song “Angel” to singing “you should have heard the way he shouted and the way that I screamed” in “I Apologize,” a movement from a romanticism that is positively adolescent ...

Mike Stern: Voices

Read "Voices" reviewed by Mike Perciaccante

Mike Stern has had the makings of Voices within him for quite some time. Only now has it come to the surface. Voices is his tenth recording for the Atlantic Jazz label. With Voices, Stern has poised himself for popular (i.e. commercial) acclaim. Always a critical darling, Stern has remained somewhat unknown to the CD buying ...

Tom Lehrer: The Remains Of Tom Lehrer

Read "The Remains Of Tom Lehrer" reviewed by Mike Perciaccante

Did you know that the classic songs (heard regularly on Dr. Demento's show) “The Vatican Rag," “The Masochism Tango" and “Poisoning Pigeons In The Park" -- not to mention, “Silent E" (from the Electric Company) all came from the fertile mind and imagination of one man? Tom Lehrer is the genius behind these great musical and ...

Charles Mingus: The Very Best Of Charles Mingus

Read "The Very Best Of Charles Mingus" reviewed by Mike Perciaccante

Mingus was a genius. The music on this CD is incredible. Anything that Mingus recorded was incredible. This being the Very Best Of, what does one expect, but fantastic performances. The only real complaint her is why one CD an not two. Mingus released enough “must have" classic compositions, that two CDs would be the most ...

Various Artists: Rhapsodies In Black: Music And Words From The Harlem Renaissance

Read "Rhapsodies In Black: Music And Words From The Harlem Renaissance" reviewed by Mike Perciaccante

This collection is a four-star, four-CD set complete with a 100-page booklet that in itself could serve as a textbook of the Harlem Renaissance and the music that it spawned. Rhino has again created an innovative package. Rhapsodies In Black includes CDs tucked into graphically cool sleeves that feature the art and music of that Harlem ...

John Coltrane: Ole Coltrane

Read "Ole Coltrane" reviewed by Mike Perciaccante

Following his classic releases Giant Steps, Coltrane Jazz, My Favourite Things and Coltrane Plays The Blues in the Coltrane catalog, Ole Coltrane was the master's final recording for Atlantic before moving to the Impulse! label.

Perhaps that is why this album seems to be one of his most overlooked recordings. Ole which was originally released in ...

John Coltrane: Coltrane Plays The Blues

Read "Coltrane Plays The Blues" reviewed by Mike Perciaccante

These recordings come from the same sessions that produced 1961's My Favorite Things. This is one of the least well know Coltrane albums, partly because it is an all blues format and partly because it was released at the end of his association with Atlantic records.

Plays The Blues features the talents of McCoy Tyner, Elvin ...
