Brian Landrus: AGRA

Read "Brian Landrus: AGRA" reviewed by John Chacona

Picking one as the essential pigment in the Orchestra's sound is a fool's errand. But here goes: it was Harry Carney's baritone saxophone, without which the Ellington sonic signature is ...

James Blood Ulmer: Family Affair

Read "James Blood Ulmer: Family Affair" reviewed by Ian Patterson


Nobody does blues, funk or jazz quite like singer/guitarist James Blood Ulmer. “Family Affair," from Black Rock (Columbia, 1982), is a slow-grooving, soulful delight. Vocalist Irene Datcher's honeyed tones combine with Ulmer's gravelly blues to wonderful effect, while the guitarist's inimitable knotty playing growls and sparks over Amin Ali's churning bass ostinato and drummer Calvin Weston's ...

Musician

Bernell Jones II

Born:

Originally from Memphis, TN, Bernell Jones II is a NYC-based saxophonist and songwriter. He is known not only for his playing, but also his disruption of the content creation industry in the music sector with his consistent stream of viral music-comedy videos on Instagram and TikTok. 

At age ten, Bernell picked up the saxophone after primarily playing piano for four years. This was a huge turning point in his life. Although he doesn’t consider himself a professional pianist, it aided him in enhancing his compositional skills and his understanding of music. 

His discography showcases a variety of musical influences from his upbringing such as gospel, jazz, blues, r&b, etc. Bernell has worked alongside artists such as Ms. Lauryn Hill , Wyclef Jean, Philip Harper, Julius Rodriguez, and more. He credits his style of writing to the influences his parents played around the house growing up such as Earth, Wind & Fire, Michael Jackson, Maxwell, and Janet Jackson, along with jazz influences such as Roy Hargrove, Miles Davis, and Herbie Hancock.
