Marcus Miller: America's AmBASSadoor

Read "Marcus Miller: America's AmBASSadoor" reviewed by Jim Worsley

Marcus Miller is most often described as a jazz, funk, soul, fusion, and R&B bassist. As much as that is accurate, it is a description that falls well short of the mark. Miller is a high-end musical sponge who manages to incorporate today's cultures and rhythms into his compositions, layered within the framework of sound he ...

The Last Night At The Old Place

Read "The Last Night At The Old Place" reviewed by Duncan Heining

By any standards the release of The Last Night At The Old Place will prove to be one of archive releases of the year, second only, perhaps, to the 'Lost' Coltrane album. All power, therefore, to Mike Gavin who has inherited the Cadillac catalogue from the late John Jack with his first release of archive material. ...

John Vanore: Stolen Moments

Read "Stolen Moments" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Oliver Nelson incise il magistrale The Blues and the Abstract Truth in una sola session nel febbraio 1961 con sette strumentisti lui compreso. Aveva 29 anni e guidava una formazione strepitosa con Eric Dolphy, Freddie Hubbard, George Barrow in front line e una ritmica comprendente Bill Evans, Paul Chambers e Roy Haynes. Quei nomi e la ...

Massimo Colombo: Powell To The People

Read "Powell To The People" reviewed by Jim Worsley

Powell To The People could certainly be heard as a tribute to jazz pianist Bud Powell. It could just as easily be heard as an introduction to the legend's iconic music. It fulfills both categories with the emotion and virtuosity Powell exuded in his playing.

Powell pioneered a new era of post swing bebop ...

Miles Davis: Miles Davis & John Coltrane - The Final Tour: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 6

Read "Miles Davis & John Coltrane - The Final Tour: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 6" reviewed by Doug Collette

It's a measure of Miles Davis' great respect for John Coltrane that the well-established jazz icon would ask the jazz icon in-the-making to do one more tour (of Europe) as the final component of latter's second stint in a quartet led by the man with the horn. The closure had begun with Coltrane's prior resignation, as ...

Six on Cellar Live

Read "Six on Cellar Live" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Cory Weeds' record label Cellar Live has become a welcome home to straight-ahead mainstream jazz in the same way that Arbors Records has been the beacon for traditional jazz and swing. Think Norman Granz's Pablo label tele-transported deep into the 21st Century. Six recent releases illuminate Cellar Live's importance to jazz as a whole and to ...

GoGo Penguin: Just Another Band From The Small Blue Planet

Read "GoGo Penguin: Just Another Band From The Small Blue Planet" reviewed by Ian Patterson

"Who are we? We find that we live on an insignificant planet of a humdrum star in a lost galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more galaxies than people."

This somewhat gloomy prognosis might sound like a line straight from Douglas Adam's surrealistic comic novel ...
