Eric Alexander / Vincent Herring: Friendly Fire

Read "Friendly Fire" reviewed by Jack Bowers

For those who long for the time when hard bop reigned supreme, Blue Note and Prestige Records were riding high, and no-holds-barred saxophone cutting contests and unscripted jam sessions were the order of the day, here's a sure cure for any lament that those days are lost and gone forever.

Tommy Newsom: Friendly Fire

Read "Friendly Fire" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Tommy Newsom, the butt of many a Johnny Carson joke when he played in the Tonight Show band, isn’t nearly as colorless as Johnny would have had us believe.

There is fire, and it ...

Joe Lovano/Greg Osby: Friendly Fire

Read "Friendly Fire" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The answer to the joke: What would John Coltrane and Charlie Parker be doing if they were alive today, is not, scratching on their respective coffin lids.
