Brad Goode: Nature Boy

Read "Nature Boy" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Classe ’63, Brad Goode vanta un curriculum di tutto rispetto, che lo ha portato a collaborare con artisti del calibro di Curtis Fuller, Ira Sullivan, Eddie Harris e Jack De Johnette. È un brillante trombettista di formazione boppistica, che ama trarre dal suo strumento le inflessioni più morbide e delicate. Nel disco per la Delmark ampio è infatti il ...

Brad Goode: Nature Boy

Read "Nature Boy" reviewed by Nic Jones

Trumpeter Goode is one of those musicians for whom the post-bop continuum fits like the proverbial glove. In the still far from overdone setting of trumpet and rhythm section he brings something fresh, to pieces such as the title track and “I Remember You." Both almost literally qualify for the term venerable and do indeed in ...

Brad Goode: Nature Boy

Read "Nature Boy" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza

Trumpeter Brad Goode brings a mixed bag to this recording. He set his sights on pop tunes from the past and the present, jazz standards, a Latin tune as well as his own work. They serve him well. He dips in and brings out the nuances and the range, turning this into a recording well worth ...

In the liner notes McBirnie is modest about his talents, but he needn’t be. He has great ...

Jackie McLean: Nature Boy

Read "Nature Boy" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The best analogy I could use to describe alto saxophonist Jackie McLean’s sound is that of a boxer. Maybe Rocky Graziano or Jake LaMotta, scratching, clawing and always coming at you with everything he’s got. McLean, a childhood friend of Sonny Rollins, studied with Bud Powell and eventually Charlie Parker. His musical bloodline runs directly from ...

Jackie McLean: Nature Boy

Read "Nature Boy" reviewed by Jim Santella

At 67, Jackie McLean sounds better than ever. Highly recommended, his latest album surrounds that distinctive alto saxophone tone with a seasoned trio, presenting classic songs – the kinds of songs that got us interested in jazz in the first place. “Nature Boy" swings lightly with a loose bebop flavor after McLean first offers the melody ...
