Out of the Past

Read "Out of the Past" reviewed by Patrick Burnette


We listen to three releases from 2022, two exploring some interesting corners of jazz repertoire and one bringing back a format that thrived in the '50s. Then, just for kicks, we get a message back from the future of 1987. Does label Cellar Music contractually oblige its artists to cover a certain Benny Golson tune? Listen ...

Outstanding Hampton

Read "Outstanding Hampton" reviewed by Patrick Burnette


It's time for a deep dive, listeners, and the subject this round is underappreciated West Coast keyboard wizard Hampton Hawes. Hawes did most of his best-known recordings for Contemporary Jazz, and we'll look at a couple of releases on that storied (but also underappreciated) label, as well as a collaboration with Charles Mingus and a sample ...

Give the Drummer Less

Read "Give the Drummer Less" reviewed by Patrick Burnette


Drummers are the under-sung heroes of the jazz world. At their best, they lift up and enhance whatever the so-called front-liners are up to while being ready to step up and say their piece when called upon. But every now and then things get a bit... sticky. This episode explores four recordings where to varying degrees ...

Pop Goes the Jazzbo

Read "Pop Goes the Jazzbo" reviewed by Patrick Burnette


"Going Pop" can mean many different things where jazz musicians are concerned, from adding electricity (dang it, Miles, why you do that?), to covering pop songs, to actually experimenting with writing pop songs (not too many take this path and few emerge unscathed). And then there's rare jazzer combining jazz and pop songs, as you'll soon ...

Pianoism

Read "Pianoism" reviewed by Patrick Burnette


A great big heapin' helping of a certain blind pianist's work provides the anchor for this time's outing, as we look at one disc from six of a new box set and then fan out to look at a little known second-hand disciple of the great man along with two other stylists further removed. Pop matters ...

Brent Laidler: Wouldn't Be Here Without You

Read "Wouldn't Be Here Without You" reviewed by Patrick Burnette


As we slip deeper into the twenty-first century, jazz is a very broad church indeed, an umbrella term referring to dozens of sub-genres and styles. Even with all those tags and labels at our disposal, however, sometimes an album can be a little hard to pigeonhole. Guitarist/arranger/composer Brent Laidler's latest album, Wouldn't Be Here Without You, ...

Dead Center of the Mainstream

Read "Dead Center of the Mainstream" reviewed by Patrick Burnette


For all their excursions into the avant-garde, fusion, post-bop, and other “edgy" forms of jazz, sometimes the boys just want to wallow right in the middle of the stream—the main part of it, you might say. This fortnight's feast includes two instrumental and two vocal albums all centered in the tradition and happy to be there. ...

The Big O Meets Big Blue

Read "The Big O Meets Big Blue" reviewed by Patrick Burnette


Ornette Coleman and Blue Note—not exactly the chocolate and peanut butter of the jazz world, one might think, but for two productive years the avant-garde avatar toiled in the vineyards of the hard bop powerhouse. The label recently released Round Trip—a box set re-issuing the fruits of this odd collaboration—and the boys take a deep dive. ...

Keep It Big!

Read "Keep It Big!" reviewed by Patrick Burnette


After last episode's extravaganza we decided to keep our focus on larger ensembles for this outing. It's a mix of historical issues (some better engineered than others) and two nearly brand-new releases. What do they have in common? Ain't none of them trios. Pop matters gets historical as we contemplate Pitchfork's deathless mediations on the “oldness" ...

Latin It All Hang Out

Read "Latin It All Hang Out" reviewed by Patrick Burnette


We start off season ten with neither a bang nor a whimper, but rather the sound of exotic auxiliary percussion and the screams of excitable brass. It's a show devoted to “Latin" music in its many guises, both smooth and bumptious, with looks at an early innovator in the jazz field, a couple of main stream ...
