Henri Salvador: Room With A View (Chambre Avec Vue)

Read "Room With A View (Chambre Avec Vue)" reviewed by Jim Josselyn

On his new Blue Note release, Room With A View, Henry Salvador croons softly of “Jazz, Silver Moonlight." On the opener and the title track, Salvador overdubs his voice to less than wonderful results. The disc has a decided retro feeling to it, as the rhythm sections Latin and Bossa Nova accompaniments seem a little stuck ...

Ray Barretto and New World Spirit: Trancedance

Read "Trancedance" reviewed by Jim Josselyn

Ray Barretto and New World Spirit are one of the finest ensembles in Latin jazz and on the elegantly swinging “Trancedance" they prove why throughout.

Keith Ganz and Sean Smith: A Wish For A Wish To Come True

Read "A Wish For A Wish To Come True" reviewed by Jim Josselyn

This recording, with its soft acoustic guitar and bass, reminds me, in mood and tempo, of the recording that Charlie Haden and Pat Metheny made a few years back. The disc opens with guitarist Keith Ganz’s title track, a soft, pretty ballad with a memorable melody and pretty changes. Bill Evans’ “Time Remembered" is similar in ...
