Larry Klein

Larry Klein is a record producer, musician, and songwriter who is 4-times Grammy-winner and 10-times Grammy-nominated. He has been nominated for the Producer Of The Year (non-classical) 3 times. His latest release is “Here It Is: A Tribute To Leonard Cohen”, Klein’s tribute to his dear friend, the great singer, songwriter and poet Leonard Cohen. After Cohen’s passing, Klein found himself selecting many songs from various periods of Leonard’s work to revisit and re-interpret. He finally decided to propose the idea of doing an entire album of Cohen’s work through a genre-defying- lens, working with a stellar band of prescient and forward-looking musicians including Blue Note artists guitarist Bill Frisell and alto saxophonist Immanuel Wilkins, drummer Nate Smith, bassist Scott Colley, pianist Kevin Hays, organist Larry Goldings, and pedal steel guitarist Greg Leisz to Don Was, the president of Blue Note Records. With Was’ approval and the help of these great musicians who think outside the limitations of genre, these great musicians, Klein would endeavor to create a language with which to re-contextualize Cohen’s great poems, using the music to create a stark and cinematic back-drop for the darkly romantic ethos that Cohen created with his writing.

Freddie Hubbard: One Of A Kind

Read "One Of A Kind" reviewed by Richard J Salvucci

It is something of a challenge to review Freddie Hubbard's work from the early 1980s. He had changed direction in the early 1970s with Red Clay (CTI, 1970) moving toward soul-jazz and jazz-rock, although anyone listening to Hubbard's playing would hear his standard vocabulary of licks. Some listeners approved; some listeners did not; and some simply ...

Luciana Souza: Cometa

Read "Cometa" reviewed by Katchie Cartwright

Luciana Souza and Trio Corrente inhabit the deep intersections of Brazilian and jazz practices, a realm Souza's double-take Yemanjá-Lady Liberty garb suggests lies somewhere in the Atlantic (see the album cover). They share rarified air as Grammy winners, as composers and as performers. It seems inevitable that they would eventually collaborate. A fan of Trio Corrente ...

Billy Childs: L.A. Contentment

But he had a neighbor who also played. Childs looked up to him. It was that neighbor who showed him stuff--taught him to play “ Cantaloupe ...

Freddie Hubbard: At Onkel Pӧ's Carnegie Hall

Read "At Onkel Pӧ's Carnegie Hall" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Se si dovesse per gioco indicare un trombettista della storia del jazz che sintetizzasse tecnica strumentale, flessibilità espressiva, capacità mimetiche in relazione al contesto e ricchezza di curriculum forse la scelta cadrebbe su Freddie Hubbard. Il suo aplomb di giocatore era mirabile, valgano per tutte le sue apparizioni a fianco di John Coltrane, in Out to ...
