Evan Sherman: Not Just A Throwback

Read "Evan Sherman: Not Just A Throwback" reviewed by David A. Orthmann


It is too easy to simply consign Evan Sherman to the throng of young drummers in the thrall of bebop masters such as Max Roach, Art Blakey, and Philly Joe Jones. Throughout Sidewalkin', Sherman's self-produced recording from 2021, and a recent live performance at the Madison Community Arts Center in Madison, NJ, these influences are perceptible, ...

Nadav Snir-Zelniker: The Sound of Surprise

Read "Nadav Snir-Zelniker: The Sound of Surprise" reviewed by David A. Orthmann


For the last dozen years or so I've frequented The Turning Point Café in Piermont, NY. I return to the small, informal venue time and time again to hear live jazz that's long on substance and short on pretense and ceremony. Though the town may seem removed from the hustle and bustle of jny: New York ...

Jeff Hirshfield on Rich Perry's SteepleChase Recordings

Read "Jeff Hirshfield on Rich Perry's SteepleChase Recordings" reviewed by David A. Orthmann


"Some drummers get carried away and stop listening, maybe because we are doing four or five things at the same time.

The Ambidextrous Greg Bufford

Read "The Ambidextrous Greg Bufford" reviewed by David A. Orthmann


Accompanied by his father, a boy approaches the drum kit, stops and stares, transfixed by the array of shapes and gleaming surfaces. Without a moment's hesitation, Greg Bufford, the man sitting on the drummer's throne, makes eye contact, smiles, and proffers an impromptu demonstration of articulate, swinging brush strokes. The sounds satisfy the boy's curiosity and ...

Shelly Manne: The Three & The Two

Read "Shelly Manne:  The Three & The Two" reviewed by David A. Orthmann


"When I'm playing, I think along melodic lines. For instance, I can go up as the notes go up. I may not hit them on the head, but the drums are a very sympathetic instrument and I can sometimes sound like I'm playing the melody without being right in tune. Naturally, I don't have the whole ...

Introducing Shawn Baltazor

Read "Introducing Shawn Baltazor" reviewed by David A. Orthmann


Forty-five minutes prior to New Tricks' opening set, Shawn Baltazor began to tote his drum kit from a parking space down the street from Trumpets Jazz Club. Four drums were neatly stacked and secured to a rolling luggage carrier. An oversized sack contained bulky metal hardware and miscellaneous equipment. A cymbal bag with a shoulder strap ...

Steve Johns with the Bob DeVos Organ Trio

Read "Steve Johns with the Bob DeVos Organ Trio" reviewed by David A. Orthmann


Bob DeVos' Organ Trio is a prime example of a band that possesses a recognizable sound yet resists facile categorization. Since 2005, along with organist Dan Kostelnik and drummer Steve Johns, the Northern New Jersey-based guitarist has played numerous live gigs and recorded two compact discs, Shifting Sands and Playing For Keeps, both released on Savant ...

Joe Corsello: Strong Second Act

Read "Joe Corsello: Strong Second Act" reviewed by David A. Orthmann


In the notes to an unfinished novel, the celebrated 20th Century author F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote, “there are no second acts in American lives." The vicissitudes of the lives of many jazz musicians, some of whom drop out of sight for years or even decades, are exceptions to Fitzgerald's often quoted dictum.The first act ...

Jason Brown

Read "Jason Brown" reviewed by David A. Orthmann


Six years ago I started writing the “Rhythm In Every Guise" column as a reaction to an imbalance that had crept into my record reviews. In many instances I was writing lots about the drummer at the expense of everyone else on the recording. The column became a means of paying tribute to venerable drum set ...
