Bill O'Connell: Jazz Latin

Read "Jazz Latin" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

I tre protagonisti del disco--il pianista Bill O'Connell, il bassista Lincoln Goines e il batterista Robby Ameen--sono stati a lungo partner del flautista Dave Valentin, scomparso nel marzo 2017 a cui hanno già dedicato tributi. Sono musicisti di valore che si conoscono bene e ribadiscono un'appartenenza stilistica influenzata dalle musiche latine ma prettamente jazzistica. Il taglio ...

The Avengers: On A Mission

Read "The Avengers: On A Mission" reviewed by Dave Wayne

If there's such as thing as good old basic, meat-and-potatoes straight ahead jazz, then The Avengers' new album On A Mission could fairly be characterized as good old basic meat-and-potatoes jazz-rock fusion.

James Cammack: Both Sides Of The Coin: Part 1

Read "Both Sides Of The Coin: Part 1" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Though James Cammack began on electric bass in the mid-1970s, he's best known as the double-bassist for legendary pianist Ahmad Jamal, a role that kept him on his toes for a remarkable 29 years. Cammack has graced many of Jamal's best latter-day recordings, but it's really live, locking horns in an improvisational cauldron with Jamal and ...

Andrea Brachfeld: Lady Of The Island

Read "Lady Of The Island" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Andrea Brachfeld's association with Charanga '76, Wayne Wallace, Tipica Ideal, Tito Puente and many others helped to establish her as the first flute lady of Latin jazz, but that designation, while flattering, is limiting. Lady Of The Island posits that she's actually been a closeted straight ahead player all along. For her fifth leader date, and ...
