Chicago Jazz Philharmonic: Sketches of Spain Revisited

Read "Sketches of Spain Revisited" reviewed by Jack Bowers

One by one, the trio of classic big-band collaborations by Miles Davis and Gil Evans is being rediscovered and reinvented by contemporary jazz ensembles: Miles Ahead, Porgy & Bess and last but not least, the tasteful and picturesque Sketches of Spain, reappraised here by trumpeter Orbert Davis (no relation to Miles) and the splendid Chicago Jazz ...

Orbert Davis: Blue Notes

Read "Blue Notes" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Orbert Davis, one of the Chicago area's favorite sons and best-kept secrets (although that status is rapidly changing), hasn't tinkered much with his third and latest album--it's essentially straight-ahead small-group jazz--but has managed to place the engine where the caboose should be.

Orbert Davis: Blue Notes

Read "Blue Notes" reviewed by AAJ Staff

No pretense surrounds Chicago trumpeter Orbert Davis's third effort, Blue Notes. The album eulogizes the hard bop ethos of the '60s Blue Note catalog.

The trumpeter's own composition, “Back in the Day," sounds like a cross between “Watermelon Man" and “The ...
