Peter Eldridge and Kenny Werner: Somewhere

Read "Somewhere" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Approximately ten years ago, pianist Kenny Werner invited his Berklee colleague, vocalist Peter Eldridge, to the studio for a library music recording session. When Eldridge arrived, expecting an intimate duo setup, he received the shock of a lifetime: Werner was there with an orchestra, 40 deep. That curve ball, which Eldridge, of course, took in stride, ...

Shambhu: Soothing Guitar for Stressful Times

Read "Shambhu: Soothing Guitar for Stressful Times" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

It covers sixteen recordings made by oboist McCandless spanning a forty-year period (1970-2010), all save three with the Winter Consort. Needless to say, a large number of musicians were involved; their names ...

Winston Byrd: Once Upon a Time Right Now

Read "Once Upon a Time Right Now" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello


"Once Upon A Time" usually prefaces a fairy tale, Aesopian fable, or, a Hollywood action movie. While no tale of witches, Princess Brides, or cigar-chomping cowboys, this recording from trumpeter Winston Byrd and his magnificent more-than-seven is an overall right now hoot. An aural feast where Byrd is Exec Chef, the production delivers superbly-performed ...

Alberto Mizrahi: Matzah to Menorah: A Holiday Jazz Celebration

Read "Matzah to Menorah: A Holiday Jazz Celebration" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian


There is a well-established legacy of fusing the sacred with the secular in jazz. Pianist Duke Ellington's Concert of Sacred Music (RCA, 1966) is, perhaps, the most ceremonial example of this but there is a myriad of other recordings. Guitarist Grant Green's gospel-inspired Feelin' the Spirit (Blue Note, 1962), pianist/harpist Alice Coltrane's exploration of Hinduism and ...
