Tarana: A Fire Of Flowers Grows Around Us

Read "A Fire Of Flowers Grows Around Us" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Musical explorations never cease. Jazz musicians are, by nature, curious and intelligent people who listen to and--for more than just economic imperatives--play all sorts of music. The farther musicians stray from their “home base," be it jazz or whatever, the deeper and richer their music becomes. The members of Tarana, Ravish Momin and Rick Parker, are ...

David White Jazz Orchestra: The Chase

Read "The Chase" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Flashpoint, released three years ago (in 2011), introduced listeners to a splendid New York-based orchestra led by composer / trombonist David White.

David White Jazz Orchestra: The Chase

Read "The Chase" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The Chase is one heck of a wild ride. Trombonist David White has followed up his Jazz Orchestra's debut--Flashpoint (Mister Shepherd Records, 2011)--with an album that's short on material but rich in content. A scant thirty-four minutes of music can be found on this one, with all but one of the six tracks falling in the ...

David White Jazz Orchestra: The Chase

Read "The Chase" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Some of the same high school kids that we're jamming with composer/arranger/trombonist David White more than fifteen years ago still occupy a space alongside newer faces in his New York based jazz orchestra. Tradition and transition are very much at the core of White's approach to progressive swing. White continues to express his unique style of ...

9Volt: Open Circuit

Read "Open Circuit" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

The career of Israeli guitarist Eyal Maoz, now based in New York, is a schizophrenic one.
