Day 2 Of 8th Annual Red Hook Jazz Festival Re-scheduled To September 20, 1-6pm

“The Red Hook Jazz Festival exists contentedly on the margins, like its namesake neighborhood and much of the music on its bill... The mood in the audience was neighborly, with a higher ratio of small children to youngish adults than I’ve seen at any musical event not expressly pitched as a kids’ show.” —Nate Chinen, New York Times “The lineup seems ...

Reggie Quinerly: Invictus

Read "Invictus" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

Drummer Reggie Quinelry's second release as a leader Invictus is a collection of short, tightly woven and compelling pieces that Quinerly and his quintet interpret with understated fervor and sublime elegance.

Read "C. Andrew Hovan's Top 10 for 2014" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan

This will be a first in some time. For a variety of reasons, I had to curtail my writing activities about five years ago. As a result, my limited work for All About Jazz consisted mainly of photography and live reviews. As a result, I felt less then prepared in previous years to present any kind ...

Brian Charette: Good Tipper

Read "Good Tipper" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Nine of the eleven tracks on organist Brian Charette's Square One (Posi-Tone, 2014) were originals, but that doesn't mean he's uninterested in tackling the music of others. In fact, judging by this album, it would seem that he really digs digging into covers. Everybody from film score icon John Barry to tunesmith Jimmy Webb to saxophonist ...

Walt Weiskopf: Overdrive

Read "Overdrive" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan

Since making his first two records on the independent Iris label back in the early '90s, Walt Weiskopf has staked a claim as one of the most advanced and iconic tenor saxophonists in jazz. However, even as he went on to record one great record after another for Criss Cross beginning in 1993, Weiskopf remained under ...

Brian Charette: Square One

Read "Square One" reviewed by Mark F. Turner

It is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery but that can be a double edged sword with respect to self-expression and individuality. Reverence to past influences such as the pioneering organists Larry Young and Jimmy Smith is commonly heard in many contemporary jazz organ players including New York based Brian Charette who breathes ...

Walt Weiskopf: Overdrive

Read "Overdrive" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

After a string of well-received dates on the Criss Cross imprint, and a one-off for the Capri label, tenor saxophonist Walt Weiskopf arrives at Posi-Tone with this pleasing sextet date. The music on Overdrive is all original, save for the penultimately-placed cover of Michel Legrand's “What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life?," and it ...

Read "Brian Charette: The Question That Drives Us and Square One" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

Classically trained pianist turned organist Brian Charette is an accomplished master of the Hammond B3 with an elegant yet passionate touch. His signature style imbues the many recordings of his various ensembles with a light, crisp sound and an effervescent melodicism that is, unapologetically, mainstream without being pedestrian. In 2014 Charette cut two charmingly seductive albums ...
