Gabriele Trancina
Of Sailing Ships and the Stars in Your Eyes

Polyglot would be an appropriate descriptor for a German-born, Parisian chanteuse, with Brazilian stylings, who is considered a cross between Ute Lemper and Tania Maria. This is what we have in Gabriele Trancina, whose fourth release ...

Carol Welsman: Alone Together

Read "Alone Together" reviewed by Edward Blanco

Canadian jazz pianist and vocalist Carol Welsman unveils her eleventh album as leader with the audacious Alone Together where she's never alone and altogether very spicy and splendid on vocals as well as on the keys. The album contains a superb selection of time-honored standards like Sammy Cahn's “Day By Day," Rodgers & Hammerstein's oft-recorded “It ...

Chris Walden Big Band: Full-On!

Read "Chris Walden Big Band: Full-On!" reviewed by Jack Bowers

To say that Chris Walden's instrumental compositions and arrangements are the best part of his new big-band album, Full-On!, is not to dismiss the rest as less than adequate. Walden's charts for the ensemble, on the other hand, do provide much of the excitement in a session that is otherwise dominated by vocals (seven in all), ...

Chris Walden Big Band: Full-On!

Read "Full-On!" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

And then there was silence from Walden. ...

Carol Welsman: The Language Of Love

Read "The Language Of Love" reviewed by Jim Santella

Carol Welsman’s love letter sends its message around the world. She sings in English, French, Italian and Portuguese on this album of treasured memories. Traces of tango, samba and bossa nova mingle casually with sensual ballads and traditional fare. Poignant arrangements of “A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square” and Sting’s “Every Breath You Take” sweep away ...

Carol Welsman: Hold Me

Read "Hold Me" reviewed by John Sharpe

Spurred on no doubt by the growing popularity of the “smooth” jazz radio format, singer/pianist Carol Welsman’s latest CD is a decidedly middle-of-the-road affair. Though she’s often billed as a “jazz” singer, Hold Me contains a whole lot of “pop” and precious little jazz. Welsman floats through this 12-track collection without ever breaking a sweat, rarely ...
