Salvo Losappio: Long Story Short

Read "Long Story Short" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Although Long Story Short is an entirely appropriate title for Italian-born tenor saxophonist Salvo Losappio's debut CD as leader, as its playing time is a lean LP-like thirty-eight minutes, Rush Job might have been an even better one. Losappio's name and face adorn the front cover of the album, which names his four sidemen but does ...

Six on Cellar Live

Read "Six on Cellar Live" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


Cory Weeds' record label Cellar Live has become a welcome home to straight-ahead mainstream jazz in the same way that Arbors Records has been the beacon for traditional jazz and swing. Think Norman Granz's Pablo label tele-transported deep into the 21st Century. Six recent releases illuminate Cellar Live's importance to jazz as a whole and to ...

Introducing Phil Stewart: Melodious Drum

Read "Melodious Drum" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Cellar Live Records continues its run of admirable mainstream albums with Melodious Drum, Canadian-born and New York City-based Phil Stewart's debut as leader of his own groups, which range from trio to sextet. It's an interesting title, as Stewart's drums may be congenial but aren't melodious in the manner of, say, Jeff Hamilton, Ed Thigpen, Shelly ...

Read "Roll On" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Add Grant Stewart's name to the growing list of tenor saxophonists who are gaining broad approval by reanimating exemplary yet by and large overlooked songs from the Great American Songbook and elsewhere and lending them a fresh coat of paint that not only accentuates their timeless charm but does so while swinging in the grandest jazz ...

Ehud Asherie: Organic

Read "Organic" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay


Organic is Israeli-born Ehud Asherie's fourth album as leader on the Posi- Tone label. It's also his second release of 2010, following the excellent Modern Life, although it was actually recorded two years before that album, back in 2007. It's another quartet recording of predominantly straight-ahead jazz and shows, once again, the young musician's affinity with ...

Ehud Asherie: Organic

Read "Organic" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Contrary to what some might believe, the designation of a musician as an organist or pianist does not have to be mutually exclusive. While some players choose to focus all of their time and energy on one of these instruments, many others prefer to branch out and try their hand at both. Fats Waller wasn't afraid ...
