The Complete Commodore & Decca Masters

Verve Music Group

2010

In 1959, Nina Simone made a black-pride point about her hit single, “I Loves You Porgy," very publicly proclaiming that she refused to use the (to her) demeaning dialect pronunciation “loves," substituting “love." It was the same year ...

Jacky Terrasson: Push

Read "Push" reviewed by George Kanzler

Since winning the Thelonious Monk Piano Competition 17 years ago, Jacky Terrasson has ranged far and wide from his original, striking early trio (with minimalist drummer/percussionist Leon Parker), exploring formats from solo and various duos to larger ensembles. For this, his first album for a new label, he returns with a new trio, featuring recent Monk ...

Bill Gerhardt: Momentum

Read "Momentum" reviewed by George Kanzler

It takes uncommon knowledge of jazz history to begin a solo piano album with a dedication to Herbie Nichols. “One for Herbie" is only one of the delightful surprises from pianist Bill Gerhardt on this winning solo recital, sumptuously recorded on a 10-foot Fazioli grand piano at the SteepleChase studios in Europe. Based in Asheville, North ...

Les Paul: How High The Moon: Hits & Rarities From The Wizard of Waukesha

Read "How High The Moon: Hits & Rarities From The Wizard of Waukesha" reviewed by George Kanzler

His name is on the classic Gibson guitar and his role in the development of the electric guitar, as well as in the creation of multi-track recording and overdubbing, is indisputable. But even though he spent the last two-plus decades of his life holding forth, as much as raconteur as musician, on Monday nights (Fat Tuesday's ...

Antonio Ciacca: Lagos Blues (with Steve Grossman)

It's creative jazz with a comfortingly substantial physicality, clean lines and rhythmic heft still anchored to a ...
