Christian McBride Big Band: Bringin' It

Read "Bringin' It" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Where and how does Christian McBride find the time to do what he does? His plate is full about nine times over, what with his work as bassist, composer, bandleader, educator, jazz advocate, public speaker, radio personality, DJ, and Artistic Director for the Newport Jazz Festival. It's no wonder that it took him six years to ...

John Vanore: Stolen Moments

Read "Stolen Moments" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Although Oliver Nelson wasn't with us very long--he died in October 1975, age forty-three--the renowned composer / arranger / saxophonist bequeathed an impressive musical legacy and touched many lives along the way. Among his many admirers is trumpeter John Vanore who first met Nelson in 1966 at an Indiana University summer camp, a meeting, Vanore writes, ...

Steve Davis: Think Ahead

Read "Think Ahead" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan



Composer and trombonist Steve Davis found a home for his muse starting in the late '90s with Criss Cross Jazz. Over the course of seven dates as a leader and many times more as a sideman, he established his voice as a writer and performer. For the past ten years, his releases elsewhere have ...

Pete Malinverni: Heaven

Read "Heaven" reviewed by Fiona Ord-Shrimpton

Perhaps church would be fashionable again amongst lapsed Christians if every church had musicians at the spec of Pete Malinverni. We have, in part, much to admire of the LA based Newman family for their reach in music and its training, in which composer, Anthony Newman was an insightful mentor to Malinverni's dedication. It would seem ...

Berta Moreno: Little Steps

Read "Little Steps" reviewed by Troy Dostert

When first seeing the title of Berta Moreno's debut record, one might be tempted to interpret it as a self-effacing gesture. Perhaps the tenor saxophonist is acknowledging her debt to the giant steps of the master of the tenor, John Coltrane himself? Upon further investigation, however, Moreno makes clear in her notes to the album that ...

Billy Childs: Rebirth

Read "Rebirth" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

It's been a while since we've heard pianist Billy Childs really dig in. While he certainly hasn't been dormant, reaching tremendous artistic heights in semi-recent times with a pair of highly refined chamber jazz explorations and a much-lauded tribute to Laura Nyro, the Childs of yore--the man that would throw down the gauntlet night after night ...
