Fabled: Short Stories

Read "Short Stories" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

Anyone who has ever pulled pints for a living probably has some stories to tell. Sam Rapley, the leader of Fabled, used to work behind the bar in Manchester's renowned Band On The Wall club. A favoured site during World War II, its jazz acts often played on during air raids. Legend has it that twenty-four ...

Gary Alesbrook: Jazz In Movies

Read "Jazz In Movies" reviewed by Dr. Judith Schlesinger

This excellent debut by British trumpeter Gary Alesbrook is notable for four reasons: 1) he's leaping straight from well-known session musician to frontman; 2) he's been playing for 33 years, mostly for high profile, non-jazz bands in the UK like The Super Fuzzy Animals and The Scissor Sisters; 3) while eclectic in his taste and experience, ...

Read "Dan Shout: In With a Shout" reviewed by Seton Hawkins



While it might be a cliché to say it, one can expect the unexpected when listening to the music of Dan Shout.

Bob Reynolds: Communication Is Key

Read "Bob Reynolds: Communication Is Key" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke

Bob Reynolds, a saxophonist and composer of note with nine recordings under his own name and a work load that has him playing with artists like Larry Carlton, Snarky Puppy, Josh Groban, John Mayer and others, pauses when considering the genre of jazz and how he fits in.

Reynolds doesn't have to apply his ...

Miguel Zenon: Yo Soy La Tradicion

Read "Yo Soy La Tradicion" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

With You Soy La Tradicion, alto saxophonist Miguel Zenon digs deep into his Puerto Rican roots with an exploration of his take on the “jazz with strings" genre. This is his eleventh CD release as a leader. He dabbled in the approach with Awake (Marsalis Music, 2008), adding a string quartet to his jazz quartet on ...

Ten Men

Read "Ten Men" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

My unscientific estimate contends that there are three female vocalists for every male vocalist. This does not mean that there are no male vocalists out there as evidenced by these ten examples. They just take a little longer to accumulate.

Brian Bromberg: Thicker Than Water

Read "Thicker Than Water" reviewed by Chris Mosey

Brian Bromberg specializes in smooth jazz. That's music with rough edges removed. He plays it on basses, upright and electric, and on piccolo basses which are tuned to sound like guitars.

It's all fiendishly clever but Bromberg remains modest. He uses a whole side of the album's cover to thank everyone, including God, ...
