Heavy Organ Indeed: Chester Thompson and The Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio

Read "Heavy Organ Indeed: Chester Thompson and The Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio" reviewed by Doug Collette


No less of an esteemed musical figure than Steve Winwood has waxed rhapsodic about the instrumental potential of the Hammond B3 organ. Doubtlessly Chester Thompson and Delvon Lamarr would extol the keyboard's virtues too and neither would relegate their praise to mere words either, at least based on their two albums centered around it. Witness, for ...

Damon Fowler: Alafia Moon

Read "Alafia Moon" reviewed by Doug Collette


The title of Damon Fowler's Alafia Moon is enough to pique the curiosity, but the stylish and mysterious cover art makes listening to the album irresistible. And it's wholly worth it too, finding out in the process of absorbing the man's eighth solo album that the graphics are the creative output of Flournoy Holmes, artist for ...

The City Champs: Luna '68

Read "Luna '68" reviewed by Doug Collette


The instrumental trio of guitarist Joe Restivo, organist Al Gamble and drummer George Sluppick first came together as the City Champs in 2007. After the release of The Safecracker (Electraphonic Recordings, 2009) and The Set-Up (Electraphonic Recordings, 2010), the three musicians were then drawn in different directions; Restivo, a member of the Bo-Keys, supported artists such ...

Franco Ambrosetti: Lost Within You

Read "Lost Within You" reviewed by Doug Collette


The Franco Ambrosetti Band Band's Lost Within You is a supremely unassuming listening experience. An all-star band helps the trumpeter composer conjure a sensuous mood that only grows progressively engrossing over the course of the seventy-plus minutes playing time of the album. The seductive sensation is an inexorable process that commences with the very ...

Forest Sun: Stubborn Breathing Heart

Read "Stubborn Breathing Heart" reviewed by Doug Collette


Evocative as is Forest Sun's name, that moniker mirrors the vivid music on Stubborn Breathing Heart. At this point, after ten plus albums in his discography, the Cali native has not wholly evolved into a original thinker, but his deeply earnest sense of purpose renders his work here inordinately charming. As does his penchant for the ...

New Moon Jelly Roll Freedom Rockers: Vol. 2

Read "Vol. 2" reviewed by Doug Collette


The New Moon Jelly Roll Freedom Rockers Volume 2 is replete with the same instinctual camaraderie and musicianly savvy as its predecessor. Likewise culled from sessions recorded in 2007, this sequel is decidedly not comprised of mere leftovers or otherwise sub-par tracks originally left unreleased. On the contrary, the alternately upbeat and reflective atmosphere reaffirms the ...

Matthews Southern Comfort: The New Mine

Read "The New Mine" reviewed by Doug Collette


In hindsight, Matthews Southern Comfort's Like A Radio (MIG Music, 2018) seems to have foretold the gloom and doom of the 2020 pandemic. But the fifth album under that moniker (not counting numerous anthologies and live LPs) also spoke to the positivism of change, i.e., streaming music is 'like a radio,' but also decidedly not the ...

Graham Parker: Five Old Souls

Read "Five Old Souls" reviewed by Doug Collette


It only stands to reason Graham Parker would want to document the live performance that comprises 5 Old Souls. Cloud Symbols (100% Records, 2018) was an utterly remarkable return to form. With uncanny accuracy but not one iota of self-consciousness, the curmudgeonly Brit hearkened directly to that earthy one-two punch by which he first gained attention ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
