Enter L.A. session saxophonist Doug Webb, a contributor to film and television, and member of big bands led by Bill Holman, ...

David Ricard Big Band: Parallels

Read "Parallels" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Whatever else the fates may decree, fortune must be smiling when one can open a big-band album with the workaday theme from “Spider-Man" and make it shine. Bassist David Ricard is fortune's beneficiary here, as are those partisans who are lucky enough to chance upon Parallels, Ricard's third and most recent treatise on big-band excellence. Whereas ...

Dave Tull: texting and driving

Read "texting and driving" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello

Wallflower. The word has zero application to describe jazz drummer, vocalist and composer/arranger/producer, Dave Tull. He's more like a Venus Fly-Trap of talent, devouring all those activities and offering a keen eye for life's surrealities. He demos all on his second CD, texting and driving. It might just be what's needed for a long, endless drive ...

Doug Webb: Bright Side

Read "Bright Side" reviewed by David A. Orthmann

Dave Tull: I Just Want to Get Paid!

Read "I Just Want to Get Paid!" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Whoa! Is that a sharp new Dave Frishberg lyric we hear poking fun at the pompous and assailing the absurd? Could it be Bob Dorough, Mose Allison or perhaps Giacomo Gates? No, the often humorous and always perceptive sentiments expressed on I Just Want to Get Paid! are those of Los Angeles- based sideman Dave Tull ...
