Marques Carroll: The Ancestors' Call

Read "The Ancestors' Call" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


This is the debut album from Chicago-based trumpeter Marques Carroll and he uses it to address very specific concerns—the ongoing struggle for identity and freedom that African-Americans have been going through in the USA for centuries. He does this in compositions that represent a dialogue between generations, music that reaches back to the spiritual jazz of ...

Patrick Lui Jazz Orchestra Hong Kong City Hall French May June 17, 2021 Yes, that date above is correct--and if the world's ongoing global nightmare has offered any relief to musicians of late, it might be the fresh appreciation afforded often overlooked players in their own communities.

Carlos Vega: Art of the Messenger

Read "Art of the Messenger" reviewed by Jack Bowers


In case you didn't quite catch the “message" subtly embedded in the title of Chicago-based tenor saxophonist Carlos Vega's new recording, Art of the Messenger, here is a brief reminder that it was drummer Art Blakey who formed the Jazz Messengers in the mid-1950s and led the celebrated hard-bop ensemble until his death in 1990. The ...

Shortly before the COVID pandemic went full force lockdown, Troy, New York drummer Joe Barna and his group, “Sketches of Influence" recorded this live album at the Middle C Jazz Club in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Savoy Almost Gave Me a Migraine & More!

Read "Savoy Almost Gave Me a Migraine & More!" reviewed by Marc Cohn


I promised to play more from that fabulous 1968 Houston Person release this week--so yeh, that's here (Soul Dance, Prestige 7621) with Boogaloo Joe Jones). It's criminally out-of-print, as is our Carmen McRae centennial feature (the classic As Time Goes By on JVC, issued for 'a minute' as an LP on Catalyst in the US many ...

John Coltrane: Blue World

Read "Blue World" reviewed by Victor L. Schermer


Discovering old and forgotten audio tapes of a jazz icon like John Coltrane is always exciting, but their posthumous release can have mixed motives. Taking advantage of the musician's name to make money is less salutary than, say, providing more great music for the public or providing opportunities for enthusiasts and scholars to fill in gaps ...

Roger Beaujolais: Sunset

Read "Sunset" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Maybe it should be a law that every vibraphonist is required to cover Bobby Hutcherson's “Little B's Poem." Okay, perhaps we don't need such a law, but as with pianists covering compositions by Thelonious Monk, a requirement like this would enable us to get the measure of the musician. Here Roger Beaujolais, on his 19th studio ...

Jon Davis: Happy Juice

Read "Happy Juice" reviewed by David A. Orthmann


Whitney Balliett once wrote, “good musicians do not copy their elders; they only use them as primers." These are words to keep in mind while listening to Jon Davis' Happy Juice, a ten track recital that acknowledges a number of modern jazz piano masters (Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans, Chick Corea, McCoy Tyner, Keith Jarrett, and Red ...
