Ed Neumeister: Suite Ellington

Read "Suite Ellington" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Trombonist Ed Neumeister opened his excellent quartet outing, New Standards (Meistero Music, 2005) with an energized take Duke Ellington's signature tune, “Take The 'A' Train." It was apparent that he had a way with Duke's music. A quick dip into Neumeister's resume finds that he played in Duke Ellington's Orchestra for sixteen years, post-Duke, when the ...

Ed Neumeister: Suite Ellington

Read "Suite Ellington" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

A complete summary of trombonist Ed Neumeister's musical career would date back to his pre-school years. Initially a regular fixture on the San Francisco circuit, he later immersed himself in the New York jazz scene dividing almost thirty-five years between the Duke Ellington Orchestra and the Mel Lewis Big Band. His additional experiences with classical orchestras ...

John Surman: Flashpoint: NDR Jazz Workshop - April '69

Read "Flashpoint: NDR Jazz Workshop - April '69" reviewed by Nic Jones

In the necessarily modestly expansive booklet note which accompanies this CD and DVD set, Brian Morton sets out the development of jazz in Britain, from its point of origin in the early decades of the twentieth century. He also rightly identifies the musical generation that came of age in the 1960s as having no sense of ...

Laurie Antonioli: American Dreams

Read "American Dreams" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

In order to have specifically American Dreams, exile may be necessary. An extended stay in a foreign country lends a certain detached perspective on the homeland. For returning San Francisco-based jazz vocalist Laurie Antonioli, that foreign stay was in Graz, Austria, at KUG University, where she taught vocal jazz from 2002 until 2006.A fortuitous ...

Laurie Antonioli: American Dreams

Read "American Dreams" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

The remarkable ingenuity of Laurie Antonioli's voice is owed, not just to the impossible range--some three octaves--but to vocalist's breathtaking ability to find the hidden quarter tones that sound between the so-called right ones. In suggesting that these notes she sings are “wrong," the idea of a Thelonious Monk-like reality emerges in Antonioli's singing. The elemental ...

Laurie Antonioli: A Constellation In The West

Read "Laurie Antonioli: A Constellation In The West" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

While vocalist Laurie Antonioli may not be a household name, she is not exactly an unknown quantity. The Bay area native has been singing pre-professionally and professionally since the late 1970s, initially influenced by the diamond songwriting talents of Joni Mitchell, James Taylor and Neil Young. She took a right turn listening to her grandmother's 78s ...

Laurie Antonioli: American Dreams

Read "American Dreams" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Calling American Dreams a jazz album is too narrowing a description. This record is actually an odyssey through the American musical landscape. After recording Foreign Affair (Nabel, 2004), with a multi-cultural cast of musicians while living abroad, vocalist Laurie Antonioli's mind drifted back toward thoughts of home. In exploring her vision of America, Antonioli touches on ...

Ed Neumeister Quartet: Reflection

Read "Reflection" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Quando subentra il rimpianto per il vecchio vinile... Cosa c’entra questo con Reflection di Ed Neumeister? C’entra, eccome! Perché l’ultima fatica discografica del trombonista di origine viennese, ma da anni residente negli Stati Uniti, sarebbe stato un piccolo capolavoro di grazia e di musicalità se solo avesse avuto venti minuti in meno rispetto ai quasi sessantacinque ...
