David Ricard Big Band: Parallels

Read "Parallels" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Whatever else the fates may decree, fortune must be smiling when one can open a big-band album with the workaday theme from “Spider-Man" and make it shine. Bassist David Ricard is fortune's beneficiary here, as are those partisans who are lucky enough to chance upon Parallels, Ricard's third and most recent treatise on big-band excellence. Whereas ...

Dave Pietro: New Road: Iowa Memoirs

Read "New Road: Iowa Memoirs" reviewed by Jack Bowers

In 2011, New York City-based saxophonist Dave Pietro was invited to spend three weeks as artist-in-residence at the University of Iowa. While there, he worked with young musicians in school programs across the state. It proved to be a rewarding commission for the native New Englander who was so enheartened that he chose to recreate the ...

John Proulx: Say It

Read "Say It" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello

The first thing one might ask encountering this album is “OK, how do you say Proulx?" It's pronounced “Proo," with a silent l and x. However, there's nothing silent or uncertain about this fine offering from Grammy®-winning pianist/vocalist/composer, John Proulx. Say It is an elegant, first class endeavor.

The ten-selection date opens with ...

John Proulx: Say It

Read "Say It" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Vocalist/pianist John Proulx has previously released three exceptional recordings on the MAXJAZZ Label (now owned by Mack Avenue Records): Moon and Sand (2006); The Best Thing For You (2006); and Baker's Dozen: Remembering Chet Baker (2016). With the death of MAXJAZZ founder Richard McDonnell, Proulx elected to self-release his recording Say It. The recording is produced ...

John Proulx: Say It

Read "Say It" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

This fourth date from John Proulx clearly marks a new chapter in his career. After delivering three albums on the now-defunct MAXJAZZ imprint, and after a hiatus from recording under his own name, this triple-threat vocalist-pianist-composer returns with his first independently-produced offering. The music spotlights a man who's grown more comfortable in his skin and lived ...

Owen Broder: Heritage

Read "Heritage" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

The cross-pollination of jazz and folk music is nothing new, but saxophonist Owen Broder does push things forward in this exploration of the idea, asking five different composers from varying generations and backgrounds to each write their own take on American folk music for an eight-piece ensemble.

Besides Broder himself, the compositions and arrangements ...

Dave Pietro: New Road: Iowa Memoirs

Read "New Road: Iowa Memoirs" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

In essence, New Road: Iowa Memoirs is the story of an urbanite's awakening to the rural lure. But to state this album's meaning in such reductive terms is to minimize its power and undercut the very beauty that inspired its creation in the first place.

Back in 2011 and 2012, The University of ...

The Diva Jazz Orchestra: 25th Anniversary Project

Read "25th Anniversary Project" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

The Diva Orchestra, with its vibrant sound and stellar soloists, is one of the premier large ensembles in jazz today. It also happens to be one of the few made up entirely of women. Therefore, it is both a creative hot bed for talented musicians and a forum for female instrumentalists, who remain sorely underexposed, to ...
