Cedar Walton Trio and Dale Barlow: Manhattan After Midnight

Read "Manhattan After Midnight" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Dispiace dirlo, ma questo disco non sarà certo annoverato tra le opere più significative di Cedar Walton. Grande pianista, dal fraseggio elegantissimo, è qui imprigionato in un progetto anonimo. Certo il jazz praticato dal suo quartetto non mancherà di suscitare l’interesse di quanti amano quel mainstream ancorato alla grande tradizione. Piacevole ed a tratti energico, il percorso proposto è ...


Joris Teepe: Going Dutch

Read "Going Dutch" reviewed by Paul Olson

Dutch-born, New York-based bassist Joris Teepe's got a great band for his seventh album, Going Dutch, and it's a considerable pleasure to listen to Teepe, drummer Gene Jackson, pianist George Colligan, saxophonist Don Braden, and trumpeter Randy Brecker interact. The program of seven Teepe originals and two covers gives the quintet plenty of room to stretch ...

Read "Spy Glass Hill" reviewed by Javier AQ Ortiz

Quick and to the Point: Tight and steady debut with fat band tracks and smaller ensemble playing.

Featuring Eddie Palmieri’s jazz octet trumpeter Brian Lynch as well as Andrew Beals on alto sax, Peter Furlan’s New York love affair with the Caribbean is evident in the ambitious mambo big band arrangement for the 14-member ...

Cedar Walton Trio featuring Dale Barlow: Manhattan After Hours

Read "Manhattan After Hours" reviewed by Charlie B. Dahan

Cool enough to play at your dinner party, yet hot enough for a serious listen, The Cedar Walton’s Trio releases “Manhattan After Dark” featuring Dale Barlow.

Walton is among the elite of jazz history. He has appeared on such legendary recordings as John Coltrane’s “Giant Steps’ and several others by Art Blakey (whose ...

Vinnie Cutro & New York City Soundscape (with Mike Stern): Aberration

Read "Aberration" reviewed by Matthew S. Robinson

This album by Vinnie Cutro presents an interesting combination of featured guest artist and title. For the most part, it is Mike Stern’s washy technical noodling that makes for the aberrations on this otherwise authentic jazz exploration. With tracks by Woody Shaw ("Beyond All Limits"), Duke Ellington ("Sentimental Mood") and James Moody ("Moody’s Mood"), this album ...
