Hanna Paulsberg Concept + Magnus Broo: Daughter Of The Sun

Read "Daughter Of The Sun" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

Fourteen centuries before Cleopatra, queen Hatshepsut became one of the few women to rule Egypt. Artworks at the time portrayed her with masculine muscles and a Pharaonic beard, but these icons were smashed to smithereens in Hatshepsut's burial chamber. Clearly she upset the male hierarchy back then. Three and a half thousand years later, this fourth ...

Read "Delirios Vol. 1" reviewed by Dr. Judith Schlesinger

Sambaranda is an cappella group out of Sao Paulo, Brazil that melds a delicious tropical flavor with the very best of vocal jazz. Their first release was a Christmas album in November 2017.

Gary McFarland: The In Sound & Soft Samba

Read "The In Sound & Soft Samba" reviewed by Rob Caldwell

Arranger, vibraphonist and singer Gary McFarland is regarded as one of the major purveyors of orchestral jazz--a type of jazz which had its heyday in the 1960s, but which is not heard as much anymore. A fine line separates orchestral jazz from the dreaded “easy listening" tag. A line so fine, they're often one and the ...

Michika Fukumori: Piano Images

Read "Piano Images" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Japanese-born, New York-based pianist Michika Fukumori's first two albums--Infinite Thoughts (Key Click Records, 2004) and Quality Time (Summit Records, 2016)--found her comfortably ensconced in piano trio settings. That most time-honored of formats served her well on both, introducing and showcasing a player with a precision touch, sure sense of swing, and imaginative leanings. For this third ...

Read "Brazilian Brilliance: Kassin and Domenico Lancellotti" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

Brazilian music is much more than established icons like Antonio Carlos Jobim, Gilberto Gil and Hermeto Pascoal. The question is where to find the musical voices of the future? Fortunately, David Byrne's Luaka Bop label is dedicated to a mission of releasing world music that goes beyond the mainstream and has released two Brazilian albums from ...

The Ken Peplowski Big Band: Sunrise

Read "Sunrise" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Many contemporary big bands are all about “breaking new ground" and “exploring new pathways." Not this one. Ace clarinetist Ken Peplowski, who has performed and recorded with myriad large ensembles, at home and abroad, but has seldom led one--although he did record one other big-band album, Last Swing of the Century (Concord Jazz, 1999)--simply wants to ...
