Darek Oleszkiewicz: Rolls-Royce Groovin'

Read "Darek Oleszkiewicz: Rolls-Royce Groovin'" reviewed by Jim Worsley

Inspiring greatness has long been the two-word association with the grand luxury of Rolls-Royce. Britain's entry into automobile finery has thus become benchmark terminology. To hear bassist Darek Oleszkiewicz interact, navigate, and improvise with today's finest jazz musicians is to understand why he has been deemed the Rolls-Royce of the modern day upright. Carrying the torch ...

Marion Brown: Capricorn Moon To Juba Lee Revisited

Read "Capricorn Moon To Juba Lee Revisited" reviewed by Chris May

The release of this album is an event momentous enough to warrant repeating the preamble to the previously published review of Albert Ayler's Quartets 1964: Spirits To Ghosts Revisited.... Before considering the music on this disc, something else has to be celebrated--the resurrection of Werner X. Uehlinger's Hat Hut label (see past profiles). Founded ...

5 Videos: Bennie Maupin

5 Videos: Bennie Maupin

On Monday, I posted about Stanley Cowell, one of jazz's greatest living pianists. Today, I'm focusing on Bennie Maupin, another living jazz legend who doesn't get the recognition he deserves. Maupin is perhaps best known for recording with Horace Silver (Serenade to a Soul Sister), Miles Davis (Bitches Brew) and Herbie Hancock (Headhunters, Thrust). Here are ...

Michael Ragonese: Day to Day

Read "Day to Day" reviewed by Paul Naser

If you haven't heard Michael Ragonese's name before, you're sure to hear it a lot more. The award winning pianist is a constant fixture in Los Angeles; if he's not a sideman at one club, he's leading a band at another. Among the many luminaries he has performed or recorded with are: Bennie Maupin, David Binney, ...

ECM @ 50

Read "ECM @ 50" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

2019 marks the 50th anniversary of German record label ECM Records. Since its founding by Manfred Eicher the label has maintained unwavering standards of excellence, characterized by an unmistakable visual identity and rigorous production values.

John Beasley: Master of All Trades

Read "John Beasley: Master of All Trades" reviewed by Jim Worsley

In today's busy world, sometimes you just can't do it all. Apparently, John Beasley never received that memo. The pianist, composer, arranger, producer, music director, and film and TV composer is in high demand, and has an enormity of projects that would seem to belie the twenty-four hour day reality. It is perhaps the variance in ...

Dr. Mark Lomax, II: 400: An Afrikan Epic

Read "400: An Afrikan Epic" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

The origins of the continent's name are not clear, but in the language of most of its inhabitants, the spelling is Afrika. The colonizers from Portugal, Britain and France adulterated the spelling for uniformity to their own phonics beginning in the fifteenth century, as they launched the cultural marginalizing of tens of millions. Dr. Mark Lomax ...

Ant Law: Life I Know

Read "Life I Know" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Ant Law's third album and the follow-up to Zero Sum World (Whirlwind, 2015), is an impressive affair. The eight compositions reflect some of the guitarist's influences and experiences, real or imaginary. Since moving to London in the 2000s, Law has acted as sideman to various leading musicians including Tim Garland and recorded on Partikel's third album, ...

Cathy Segal-Garcia: The Jazz Chamber

Read "The Jazz Chamber" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

On this album, Cathy Segal-Garcia, a vocalist and educator on the Los Angeles jazz scene, comes up with something special, working with a chamber orchestra and a group of jazz musicians to produce a wide-ranging program that veers from lush romanticism to complex jazz-funk. On much of the disc, Segal-Garcia's thick, classically formal voice, ...

Charles Pillow Large Ensemble: Electric Miles

Read "Electric Miles" reviewed by Mark Corroto

You thought not, but you can put the genie back in the bottle. What we're talking about is the specter unleashed by Miles Davis with Bitches Brew (Columbia, 1970). Davis' expanded lineup for BB with ten-plus musicians, including the electric pianos of Joe Zawinul, Chick Corea, and Larry Young, Bennie Maupin playing bass clarinet, a young ...
