Pat LaBarbera Kirk MacDonald Quartet with Adam Nussbaum & Kieran Overs: Silent Voices

Read "Silent Voices" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello


The oxymoronic title of Silent Voices belies and simultaneously validates interesting things about this recording. Far from silent in its artistic message, it is an intelligent, evocative, and brilliantly communicative effort. Its “voices" dominate, ring loud, and are intensely passionate.

John La Barbera Big Band: Caravan

Read "Caravan" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Summoning Juan Tizol's travel-worn “Caravan" to raise the curtain on a big-band album poses a challenge for any arranger, one that John La Barbera easily brushes aside on the third recording as leader of his own ensemble.

The La Barbera Brothers: Jazz DNA

Read "The La Barbera Brothers: Jazz DNA" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello


It's an interesting phenomenon how certain families enter and distinguish themselves in this marvelous world of jazz--The Joneses, Heaths, Candolis, Royals, Breckers, Mangiones, and others.

The Joe La Barbera Quintet: Silver Streams

Read "Silver Streams" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello


If there is a stream of any kind that runs through Silver Streams by The Joe La Barbera Quintet, it is the flow of energy--intense to the point of ignition--that is tapped. No meandering “Old Man River," this team drinks from the source with gusto and unified creativity. That shouldn't be a surprise, since La Barbera ...
