Larry Young

A true innovator on the Hammond B3, Young took a different musical path than any of the other organ masters of his time: Although he started out drawing his major influences from the work of Jimmy Smith and the gospel and blues elements that other players employed, but eventually turned to a more complex, modal approach to the organ with sophisticated harmonic and chordal structure Larry Young was born on October 7, 1940, and hails from Newark, New Jersey. His background includes study of both classical and jazz music on the piano, but had a natural family bond with the organ. Larry Young, Senior, his father, was an organist and was the first major musical influence on his son

The Arrival of Joe Henderson (1963 - 1967)

Read "The Arrival of Joe Henderson (1963 - 1967)" reviewed by Russell Perry

Joe Henderson may have been the most significant tenor saxophonist to emerge in the 1960s. Gary Giddins wrote that he is ..."an irresistibly lucid player, whose adroitness in conjuring stark and swirling riffs contributed immeasurably to two of the most durable jazz hits of the '60s, Horace Silver's 'Song for My Father' and Lee Morgan's 'The ...

Read "Dave Stryker: Guitars, Organs & Eight-Tracks" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Guitarist Dave Stryker grew up in Omaha, Nebraska and moved to New York City in 1980. His big break came when he joined organist Jack McDuff's group for two years, from 1984-85. It was through McDuff that Stryker met tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine, who would occasionally sit in. After leaving McDuff, Turrentine asked Stryker to join ...

Pat Bianchi: B3 Master

Read "Pat Bianchi: B3 Master" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke

It may be that young Pat Bianchi had little choice but to follow a career in music. After all, his father and both his grandfathers played professionally in his hometown of Rochester, NY, an area that also produced the likes of the Mangione brothers (Chuck and Gap), pianist Frank Strazzeri, saxophonist Gerry Niewood and drum legend ...

Woody Shaw: At Onkel Po's Carnegie Hall: Vol. 1: Hamburg 1979

Read "At Onkel Po's Carnegie Hall: Vol. 1: Hamburg 1979" reviewed by Chris May

Woody Shaw was born a decade or so after quintessential hard-bop trumpeters Lee Morgan, Donald Byrd and Freddie Hubbard, Shaw's professed role model. He came to the party late but he came bearing gifts—a strong technique, an ability to play inside and outside with equal conviction, and a lot of soul. These qualities were to the ...

Blue Note's 80th Anniversary Vinyl Initiative

Read "Blue Note's 80th Anniversary Vinyl Initiative" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

Blue Note moves in mysterious ways. It seems like only a few months ago that the storied jazz label announced its Tone Poet vinyl series, because, well, it was only a few months ago, and here they are with yet another entry in the vinyl reissue game: the Blue Note 80th Anniversary Series. Like the Tone ...

Zhenya Strigalev and Federico Dannemann: The Change

Read "The Change" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Zhenya Strigalev and Federico Danneman previously recorded together on Strigalev's Blues For Maggie (Whirlwind, 2018), but with the possible exception of that album's penultimate track ,"Little Struggle," the fare offered there differed a little from what's on offer here. The Change unequivocally oozes rock-infused take-no-prisoners jazz. Perhaps the nearest comparison to this band, and this is ...

He reveals himself as a man for all seasons in being a confident saxophonist, music historian, and archivist with his new label Reel to Real (in cooperation with that maestro of the catalog, Zev Feldman.
