Ted Chubb Band
Trumpets Jazz Club
Montclair, NJ

The other night I went to Trumpets Jazz Club to check out the Ted Chubb Band without any preconceptions as to what I was about to hear. I was nonetheless interested in answers to some basic questions. Knowing nothing about ...

Andrea Brachfeld: If Not Now, When?

Read "If Not Now, When?" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Of all of the necessary tools associated with the creative process, the most overlooked may simply be space to think and grow. While the mile-a-minute, multi-tasking mentality that dominates in modern society makes it difficult to find said breathing room, musicians occasionally need to take a step back to fuel their artistic impulses. Flutist Andrea Brachfeld ...

Bob DeVos Quartet
Trumpets Jazz Club
Montclair, NJ
January 26, 2018

We live in a time when some of the septuagenarian jazz survivors, with roots in the music's venerated years, are taking a well-deserved victory lap. They've earned the right to expect audiences to pay to hear them ...

Cory Weeds: Let's Groove: The Music of Earth Wind & Fire

Read "Let's Groove: The Music of Earth Wind & Fire" reviewed by Jack Bowers

When last heard from, Canadian Cory Weeds was wielding a mean neo-swing tenor saxophone with the superb Jeff Hamilton trio on the albums Dreamsville and This Happy Madness. On Let's Groove: The Music of Earth, Wind & Fire, Weeds moves from tenor to alto (with no loss of merit) alongside tenor and fellow Canadian Steve Kaldestad, ...

Hard Boppin' at Smalls

Read "Hard Boppin' at Smalls" reviewed by Dave Kaufman

Smalls Jazz Club in Greenwich Village is a remarkably vibrant music venue that enjoys considerable international renown. It is not the most mannered of clubs with loud and boisterous audiences. Nor is it the most decorous, but does offer a rather distinctive look. The club has a great vibe and is committed to treating its audience ...

Ken Fowser: Now Hear This!

Read "Now Hear This!" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan

Taking a cue from some of the other smaller jazz-based labels, Posi-Tone has done a remarkable job over the past few years of building a roster of budding talents worthy of wider recognition. Part of the allure of such an endeavor is the ability to see the evolution of an artist's muse unfolding like a rose. ...

Behn Gillece: Dare to Be

Read "Dare to Be" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan

When it comes to jazz vibraphone, the names of Stefon Harris and Warren Wolf are most likely to be found on a list of contemporary leaders. Add to that now the name of Behn Gillece, a gentleman who has been honing his skills on the New York scene since 2006. His talents first came to the ...

Dick Sisto/Steve Allee Quartet: Earth Tones

Read "Earth Tones" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

While Earth Tones is the first album credited to the Dick Sisto/Steve Allee Quartet, it's not this foursome's first rodeo. This group has been at it as a working band for quite a while now, and it previously released Spirit of Life (Jazzen, 2013)--a date under Sisto's name that concentrates on the work of John Coltrane, ...

The Dave Stryker Trio Swings A Log Church

Read "The Dave Stryker Trio Swings A Log Church" reviewed by Gloria Krolak

Once through pastoral Medford Village in Burlington County, NJ, you arrive at Medford Lakes, a community of period log cabins under towering pine trees just off Stokes, the main road. In this onetime lakeside resort, hand-hewn from local wood, beckons a big cabin called Cathedral of the Woods. Russell Quigliata, who managed Cecil Payne until the ...

Mike Davis: Fortunes and Hat-Tricks, Vol. 2

Read "Fortunes and Hat-Tricks, Vol. 2" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

Double bassist Mike Davis organizes his spontaneous, immediate improvisations-compositions according to two arbitrary guidelines. The Fortunes group of such compositions draw its inspiration from evocative song titles taken from about 100 fortune cookies, but Davis and his trio co-conspirators--saxophonist Jacob Duncan and drummer Jason Tiemann--never discuss their different interpretations of these titles before playing. The second ...
