John and Kelly Fumo With Fumosonic: Grape

Read "Grape" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Long time studio whiz and sometimes avant-garde-er, trumpeter John Fumo, teams with the Fumosonic ensemble, including vocalist Kelly Fumo, to explore a set of Great American Songbook gems, laid down mostly in a mellow mood. The group approaches the familiar songs with reverence and sass, beginning with “Don't Wait Too Long," from the Blossom Dearie songbook. ...

John and Kelly Fumo with Fumosonic

Fumosonic is the culmination of 20+ years of marriage and collaboration between John and Kelly Fumo. The vision of these two musician/composers from Los Angeles, CA is a transformative musical experience that draws upon John’s jazz influences and Kelly’s love of music. The pair met while doing a recording session for singer Delaney Bramlett and had an instant connection. Their journey began with the first song they created called “Shut Up and Go Home!”, which showcases the unique formula of a heavy beat, Kelly’s strong vocals and some free jazz improvisation by John. John’s trumpet playing may be heavily influenced by Miles Davis and the free expressions of jazz music, but he has worked as a side man with the likes of Neil Diamond, James Brown, Beck and Brian Setzer

The Jeff Gauthier Goatette: Open Source

Read "Open Source" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Open Source would have made a good alternative name for violinist Jeff Gauthier's ensemble, as it draws inspiration from myriad sources. Goatette continues its near twenty-year journey into territory ranging from avant-garde and sci-fi soundscapes, and deep funk grooves colored by searing electric guitar, to an altogether more pastoral melodicism reminiscent of the Mahavishnu Orchestra at ...

The Jeff Gauthier Goatette: Open Source

Read "Open Source" reviewed by John Kelman

When two-thirds of a group has “effects" in their instrumental credits, it's a safe bet this ain't your granddaddy's jazz. When it's violinist Jeff Gauthier's Goatette, punctuating the quirky theme in the first moments of “40 Lashes (With Mascara)" with thundering drums and high-octane power chords, it's clear that Open Source is going to make plenty ...

Erin Dickins: Rediscovering Repertoire

Read "Erin Dickins: Rediscovering Repertoire" reviewed by Nick Catalano

One of the great challenges for any established recording vocalist is finding material. Often, even the best arrangements fall short if the composition is a tired standard that has been recorded to death. Success in this area is rare, so when a debut CD contains one thoughtfully performed obscure gem after another, it is time to ...

George Kahn: Cover Up!

Read "Cover Up!" reviewed by Edward Blanco

West Coast jazz pianist George Kahn presents fresh new arrangements to pop and rock tunes associated with such groups as Cream, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Bill Withers and John Mayer, in a sense redefining or adding to the controversy, or, as the title of his album would suggest, the Cover Up! of what truly defines the ...
