Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw: Crossroads

Read "Crossroads" reviewed by Jack Bowers

The Netherlands's Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw, which started life in 1996 as the New Concert Big Band, a successor to such leading lights as Count Basie and Woody Herman, has evolved since then into an up-to-date ensemble that more closely resembles New York's Vanguard Jazz Orchestra or composer Bill Holman's legendary West Coast rehearsal band. ...

Ian Dogole and Hemispheres: Crossroads

Tim Coffman: Crossroads

Read "Crossroads" reviewed by George Harris

Tim Coffman's sophomore release provides a fine exhibition of how lyrical and soothing a trombone can actually be. Basing his music firmly in the hard bop of the early '60s Jazz Messengers, Coffman and his sextet crisply glide and breeze through a set of hard-driving jazz compositions. On Wayne Shorter's “Yes or No," and Coffman's title ...

Add another promising trombonist to keep your eyes on! With his debut album, the Chicago-based Tim Coffman shows a keen sense of melody, arranging skills, and a style that is inspired by J.J.
