Dave Zinno: Fetish

Read "Fetish" reviewed by Rob Rosenblum


While it is obvious that bassist Dave Zinno put a lot of thought into the writing and arrangements here, it is the quality of solo performances that gives this album its worthy distinction. Some may be familiar with pianist Tim Ray from his inclusion in the trio backing one of altoist Greg Abate's albums and his ...

Dave Zinno Unisphere: Fetish

Read "Fetish" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Dave Zinno's New York-based Unisphere is a quintet/sometime sextet that is rhythmically sound, melodically smooth and anchored by his assertive bass lines. The group employs a splendid two-horn front line (tenor saxophonist Mike Tucker, trumpeter Eric Benny Bloom) and adds a third, trombonist/arranger Rafael Rocha, on the freewheeling closer, “Meu Fraco e Cafe Forte" (in English, ...

Christine Fawson: Sings Jazz

Read "Sings Jazz" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Christine Fawson: a singer who plays trumpet or a trumpeter who sings? Flip a coin. Fawson carries out both assignments to good effect on her new CD but, considering its title, Sings Jazz, she seems to bend toward to former. Whatever the case, this much can be affirmed: Fawson is a performer who must be seen ...

AGNZ: Chance Meeting

Read "Chance Meeting" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Before proceeding, a word about the name of this admirable quartet: AGNZ (jazz from A to Z?) comprises the first letter in the last names of its four members--guitarist Jay Azzolina, tenor saxophonist Dino Govoni, drummer Adam Nussbaum and bassist Dave Zinno. It further denotes, presumably, a certain level of parity, a selflessness and camaraderie among ...
