Roger Kellaway: The Many Open Minds Of Roger Kellaway

Read "The Many Open Minds Of Roger Kellaway" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Criticize pianist Roger Kellaway? You must be kidding. Describe Roger Kellaway? That's a fair bet and far more advisable. Kellaway, who is eighty years old as this is being written, embodies the boundless exuberance, creative power and impeccable technique of any player half his age, all of which he displays unfailingly on The Many Open Minds ...

Frank Wess: Magic 201

Read "Magic 201" reviewed by Maurizio Zerbo


Maestro riconosciuto dell'arrangiamento per big band jazz, Frank Wess si distingueva altresì per le linee morbide e sinuose del suo sax tenore. In questa veste lo ritroviamo protagonista di questo CD, registrato due anni prima della sua scomparsa. Lo affianca un notevole quintetto che con classe e discrezione ripercorre un ammaliante filo della memoria, intriso di ...

Frank Wess: Magic 201

Read "Magic 201" reviewed by Jack Bowers


The cover of the late Frank Wess' final album, Magic 201, closely resembles that of its predecessor, Magic 101--so much so that a reviewer who didn't look closely enough might assume he'd been sent a second copy of the earlier album by mistake. (Oops!) Wess recorded Magic 201 in September 2011, two months after Magic 101 ...

Jeremy Steig: Flute Fever

Read "Flute Fever" reviewed by Carlo Wolff

It was also the debut of Denny Zeitlin, a Bay Area psychiatrist whose singularly imaginative jazz moonlighting has resulted in numerous fearless disks over the past five decades. Backed by veterans Ben Riley on drums and Ben ...

Frank Wess: Magic 201

Read "Magic 201" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


IPO Records has become the jazz destination for seasoned jazz veterans. Saxophonist James Moody (1925--2010) recorded his last two releases for the label: Moody 4A (2009) and Moody 4B (2010). Hard on Moody's heels is saxophonist Frank Wess (1922- -2013) who followed his Magic 101 (2013) with the predictable titled Magic 201. Pianist Kenny Barron and ...

Frank Wess: Magic 201

Read "Magic 201" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


Despite a career that spanned more than half of a century, Frank Wess was not a household name. The flautist/saxophonist spent the 1950s and 60s playing with some of the best known big bands in the U.S. including those of Billy Eckstine, Count Basie and Clark Terry. During that period he was primarily recognized as a ...

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!
