Top Ten Jazz Tracks for Surf Music

Read "Top Ten Jazz Tracks for Surf Music" reviewed by Alan Bryson

The notion of jazz as surf music seems absurd at first blush, but it can work surprisingly well. Some time ago I learned this by happenstance while listening to an album by fusion guitarist Alex Machacek as I watched surf videos on YouTube. It was a true “ah ha" moment. Compared to the original soundtrack, Alex's ...

Music is wondrously implausible, an invisible art form that is arguably best appreciated with your eyes shut. Yet it is equally true that live music, like great sporting events, has the capacity to trigger powerful emotional responses, focus people on the present, and unite a disparate crowd around a shared experience happening on stage. Each approach ...

La recensione di tre serate di Vicenza Jazz 2014, durato dal 9 al 17 maggio, può essere sufficiente per individuarne la filosofia. Sotto il titolo “Visual & Visionary Jazz--Sull'Arka di Sun Ra, tra vecchie e nuove avanguardie," che ha funzionato come pretesto, come indirizzo indicativo, la ...

Talkin' Blues with Barbara Dennerlein

Read "Talkin' Blues with Barbara Dennerlein" reviewed by Alan Bryson

If there were a Guinness World Records prize for jazz artist with the biggest organ, it could very well go to Barbara Dennerlein. No doubt, her Hammond B3 was a disc-crushing bane for countless roadies over the past three decades, but a B3 pales in comparison to what she's been playing lately. Imagine five organs with ...

Ladder Is High, Women Keep Climbing

Read "Ladder Is High, Women Keep Climbing" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Unlike college sports, there is no Title IX program for women in jazz. Those who wish to pursue that line of endeavor have to elbow their way into what remains essentially a male-dominated profession (or art) and keep climbing the ladder one rung at a time. True, women have made notable inroads in recent years and ...

The Jazz Session: Oh, The Places You'll Go!

Read "The Jazz Session: Oh, The Places You'll Go!" reviewed by Jason Crane

It's been quite a year for The Jazz Session, my online jazz interview show: passing 300,000 downloads (and a few thousand away from 400,000 as I write this); forming a partnership with All About Jazz; adding more episodes per week; launching Facebook and Twitter pages; and just generally taking things up a level or two. I ...

The sold-out space in Ronnie Scott's Club was illuminated by candle light when Barbara Dennerlein and her band took the stage. The Ronnie Scott All-Stars had already finished the opening set with some familiar tunes featuring piano and flugelhorn as the lead voices, backed ...

Barbara Dennerlein: A Study in Contrasts

Read "Barbara Dennerlein: A Study in Contrasts" reviewed by Alan Bryson

In many ways Barbara Dennerlein is a study in contrasts. From a North American perspective she is an insider's tip, a superlative Hammond B3 player known to hardcore jazz fans, admired by fellow B3 players, and respected by her musical peers. We can contrast that with how she is known in the German speaking countries of ...

01. Jaco Pastorius Big Band - The Word Is Out! (Heads Up - 2006). Consiglio vivamente questo CD ricco di stupende composizioni di Jaco eseguite da una big band stellare. Una miscela di ritmi complessi, interessanti melodie, un suono eccellente ed elementi di World Music, unica e rivoluzionaria. 02. Maceo Parker - School’s In (BHM Productions - 2005). Il padrino ...
