Read "Steve Haines and The Third Floor Orchestra" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Dare al lettore—nel breve spazio di una recensione—l'idea del contenuto e del valore (in un giudizio ovviamente soggettivo) di un album spinge a usare tutte quelle classificazioni nate per orientarci. In poche parole, creare delle mappe è utile ma se il territorio è ricco di elementi diversi si rischia di usare etichette fuorvianti. ...

Jerome Wilson's Best Releases of 2019

Read "Jerome Wilson's Best Releases of 2019" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


The human voice was the first musical instrument and many of my favorite releases of the past year show how powerful the voice can be, whether the singer is in a choir, part of an instrumental ensemble or leading the band. Of course there were also many purely instrumental releases that were outstanding as well.

Steve Haines: And the Third Floor Orchestra

Read "And the Third Floor Orchestra" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


In the Fifties and Sixties it was very common to have jazz recordings that would feature a vocal or instrumental soloist like Ella Fitzgerald or Stan Getz in front of a full orchestra.

Steve Haines: And the Third Floor Orchestra

Read "And the Third Floor Orchestra" reviewed by Jack Bowers


This is by and large lovely music, to be sure, but to paraphrase a Burger King ad from years gone by, “Where's the jazz?" Aside from a handful of perfunctory solos by soprano saxophonist Chad Eby and pianist Joey Calderazzo, there isn't much here. Instead, composer / arranger Steve Haines and the Third Floor Orchestra canvass ...

Read "The Sweet Shel Suite" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello


For those who might not know him from his most famous written works, “The Giving Tree" and “Light in the Attic," or from his music, Johnny Cash's hit, “A Boy Named Sue," poet, cartoonist, playwright and Grammy®-winning musician, Shel Silverstein was about as unique and talented an artist as they come.

Chad Eby Quartet: The Sweet Shel Suite

Read "The Sweet Shel Suite" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Reading poet Shel Silverstein's The Giving Tree once again as an adult, it is improbable that one would take away the same message as you did reading the book as a child.
