Iro Haarla, Ulf Krokfors & Barry Altschul: Around Again: The Music Of Carla Bley

Read "Around Again: The Music Of Carla Bley" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Although much of her music is imbued with subtle humor, Carla Bley's compositions are serious music. Finnish pianist Iro Haarla is a long-time admirer of the Bley, and on this CD she gives her music an appropriate gravity, while retaining its spirited nature.

Live in concert, the trade-off for the lack of second takes, is the musicians' ability to feed off of the energies of the audience. Their true identities ...

John Clayton: Parlor Series, Vol. 1

Read "Parlor Series, Vol. 1" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The Parlor Series was conceived of long before it came into existence. Bassist/Composer/Arranger/Educator extraordinaire John Clayton had long hoped to explore the piano-bass duo medium on record. He had admired albums like This One's For Blanton (Pablo, 1974), which paired his mentor--bass legend Ray Brown--with the great Duke Ellington, and Steal Away (Verve, 1995), which brought ...
