Dick Griffin: Time Will Tell

Read "Time Will Tell" reviewed by William Carey

This set of eight original tunes, all penned by trombonist/leader Dick Griffin is a testament to the old KISS adage: keep it simple, stupid. Get some good players together, write some straightforward melodies, and blow, and Griffin has assembled some good players

“Could It Be the Blues" strikes the perfect mood to open ...

Nicole Herzog: Time Will Tell

Read "Time Will Tell" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Slight and striking, the coquette-voiced German Nicole Herzog has the stones to lead her own septet on Time Will Tell. Rather than opting for a trio or quartet format as her ride, Herzog employs the “little big band" concept developed and perfected by Miles Davis with his famous 1949 nonet and 1958 sextet.

Dom Minasi's DDT+2: Time Will Tell

Read "Time Will Tell" reviewed by John Kelman

Dom Minasi had a brief relationship with Blue Note Records in the mid-‘70s, when he released two recordings and then, disillusioned by the changes in label direction, walked away from recording for nearly twenty-five years. While he continued to play in the intervening years, honing a style that seems to combine a warm tone and slightly ...

Dom Minasi: Time Will Tell

Read "Time Will Tell" reviewed by Jim Santella

The modern mainstream is served righteously with Dom Minasi’s latest album, which features his chamber jazz quartet interpreting six originals and two integral standards. Combining elements of free jazz with straight-ahead luxury, the quartet sparkles with its melding of fresh, new ideas and familiar melodies.

Minasi writes from a straight-ahead jazz experience. That’s ...

Dom Minasi's DDT+2: Time Will Tell

Read "Time Will Tell" reviewed by Elliott Simon

Sandwiching original tributes to Trane, Dizzy, Miles, and Dolphy between Wayne Shorter?s ?Witch Hunt? and Monk?s ?Round Midnight,? Time Will Tell continues guitarist Don Minasi?s laudatory deconstruction of the jazz masters. The third in a loose trilogy of CDs ( Takin? the Duke Out, 2001; Goin? Out Again, 2002) that has featured ingenious ?out? tributes, Time ...

Dom Minasi: Time Will Tell

Read "Time Will Tell" reviewed by Franz A. Matzner

Intersecting spirals, overlapping glissandi, free form excursions accelerating to abrupt halts. Reversals. Short melodic phrases rupturing into florid runs. The cello's persistent, mournful grace bound to the guitar's sharper, interpolating voice, both riding on, then blending with the bass's firmer, deeper resonance, gliding within and without the drums' tight pulse and rhythmic report, the runnels and ...

Dom Minasi: Time Will Tell

Read "Time Will Tell" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Time Will Tell is the third release from guitarist Dom Minasi on his CDM Records label. On the other two recent discs ( Takin' the Duke Out and Goin' Out Again ), Minasi has taken great glee in allowing his brutally unique approach on the guitar to step front and center. Mr. Minasi has recast standards ...

Dom Minasi: Time Will Tell

Read "Time Will Tell" reviewed by AAJ Staff

New York guitarist Dom Minasi inaugurated his CDM label in 2001 with the live record Takin' Out The Duke, a restless outburst of unbridled expressionism. It was a far cry from his two mid-'70s Blue Note records, which tread familiar ground and took smaller chances. He shook things loose again with Goin' Out Again, a similarly ...
