Curtis Stigers with the Danish Radio Big Band: One More For The Road

Read "One More For The Road" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Curtis Stigers è un cantante pop che ha debuttato nel 1991 con brani di grande appeal commerciale come “I Wonder Why," “Never Saw a Miracle" e “You're All That Matters to Me."

Mark Winkler: The Company I Keep

Read "The Company I Keep" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The Beatles had it right when they noted that we get by with a little help from our friends. It's a fact that vocalist Mark Winkler can surely testify to. In the wake of losing his husband, Winkler found the comfort and strength he needed through the company he keeps and in the music that feeds ...

Giacomo Gates: What Time Is It?

Read "What Time Is It?" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello

2:02.75. That might have been what longshot “Giacomo" (at 50-1) took to win the Kentucky Derby back in 2005. However, it will take longer--just short of an hour--to realize that this thoroughbred Giacomo rides home a winner with What Time Is It?. Hold the oats and roses and grab the ear buds.

L'ultimo hipster. La vita e la musica di Mark Murphy

Read "L'ultimo hipster. La vita e la musica di Mark Murphy" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Non trovate accenni a Mark Murphy nelle più recenti storie del jazz, neanche il nome. Una lacuna che appare inspiegabile (a differenza di Frank Sinatra, Mel Tormè e Tony Bennett) che si giustifica solo col ritardo a collocare il cantante di Syracuse in una prospettiva storica.

Eppure già prima della sua scomparsa -il ...

Mark Murphy: Live in Italy 2001

Read "Live in Italy 2001" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Quest'inedito concerto di Mark Murphy del 2001 è un documento prezioso che ci ricorda uno dei massimi vocalist della storia del jazz, il più eclettico e creativo della sua generazione. Incrementa il valore del compact la presenza di Marco Tamburini--allora 42enne--in uno smagliante quartetto con Marco Piacentini, Piero Leveratto e Marco Tonin.

Read "Meet Ari (ImpressARIo) Silverstein" reviewed by Tessa Souter and Andrea Wolper

Some people are jazz aficionados. Then there's Ari Silverstein. Hooked from the moment he saw the light of jazz, was he content merely to listen? Not Impress-Ari-o! Once he was in, he was in all the way, from organizing concerts to getting his New York tour guide license in order to start shepherding tourists to his ...

Read "Male Vocals – Mark Murphy, Theo Bleckmann, Gregory Porter, Jimmy Scott, Kurt Elling, Ron Boustead" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

What passes for male jazz vocals makes an interesting dichotomy with female jazz vocals. Judging by the number of female jazz vocal releases that come my way, I almost believe that every woman fancies that she can make a jazz recording. Interestingly, there are many good to great ones. Not so with men. I probably see ...
