David Benoit: Heroes

Read "Heroes" reviewed by Woodrow Wilkins


An ongoing trend in music is for veteran artists to do albums comprised of cover songs--whether to celebrate a particular musician, era or record label, revisit the music they grew up with or for commercial reasons. Done poorly, the collection can be trite. Pianist/keyboardist David Benoit attempts to avoid that pitfall with Heroes, a mixed bag ...

Roger Kellaway: Heroes

Read "Heroes" reviewed by Jim Santella


The Roger Kellaway Trio has no drummer. Rhythm isn't a problem though, since this group swings so well, but harmony is another matter. It's a challenge that pianist Roger Kellaway takes seriously, with considerable success. The Oscar Peterson trios with guitar, Kellaway's first and main influence, have paved the way for him to get excited about ...

Roger Kellaway: Heroes

Read "Heroes" reviewed by Larry Taylor


When pianist Roger Kellaway first thought about becoming a jazz musician in the '50s, keyboard legend Oscar Peterson was hitting his stride with his great trios. They included Ray Brown on bass, and first Barney Kessel, then Herb Ellis on guitar. Peterson's trios were a big influence on Kellaway. As he states in the liner notes, ...

The Roger Kellaway Trio: Heroes

Read "Heroes" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Classe ’39, Roger Kellaway è sempre stato un pianista dalla cifra espressiva camaleontica e per questo difficilmente riconducibile ad uno stile ben preciso. E lo testimoniano le infinite esperienze per big-band, musiche da film e perfino contesti pop che hanno connotato la sua carriera artistica. Per quel che riguarda il jazz, purtroppo poche sono le sue ...

The Roger Kellaway Trio: Heroes

Read "Heroes" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza


It's tribute time as Roger Kellaway tinkles the keys in homage to Oscar Peterson. On Heroes, Kellaway dwells mainly on tunes from the repertoire of Peterson's trio with Herb Ellis and Ray Brown, even working with a similar lineup alongside bassist Dan Lutz and guitarist Bruce Forman. There is some diversion; Kellaway tips his hat in ...

The Roger Kellaway Trio: Heroes

Read "Heroes" reviewed by Michael P. Gladstone


The last we heard from pianist/composer Roger Kellaway was last year, when he dazzled the world with his remembrances as Bobby Darin's musical director (undoubtedly timed to coincide with the release of the Darin biopic Beyond The Sea. Now, we have a dramatic and long-needed tribute to the “drum-less" piano trio (guitar/bass/piano) that dates back to ...

Donald Harrison: Heroes

Read "Heroes" reviewed by Jeff Stockton


Ron Carter, one of altoist Donald Harrison's heroes and the primary bassist on this recording, makes the point that Harrison comes from New Orleans, but doesn't insist that he does. Harrison approaches his tradition with a pure heart, and from his apprenticeship with Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers in the mid '80s through his own ...

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!
