Dave Zinno: Fetish

Read "Fetish" reviewed by Rob Rosenblum


While it is obvious that bassist Dave Zinno put a lot of thought into the writing and arrangements here, it is the quality of solo performances that gives this album its worthy distinction. Some may be familiar with pianist Tim Ray from his inclusion in the trio backing one of altoist Greg Abate's albums and his ...

Greg Abate: Magic Dance: The Music of Kenny Barron

Read "Magic Dance: The Music of Kenny Barron" reviewed by Rob Rosenblum


Magic Dance is an offering by multi instrumentalist Greg Abate, who is a proud keeper of the bebop flame. In the 75 plus years that bebop has been around, there have probably been hundreds of thousands of quartet records with sax, piano, bass and drums, a few of which have been contributed by Abate. But this ...

Greg Abate: Man on a Journey

Read "Greg Abate: Man on a Journey" reviewed by Rob Rosenblum


After a warm up tune by the trio of Frank Puzzullo on piano, Sam Edwards on bass and Edwin Hamilton on drums, a medium sized fellow with slicked back hair and very casual attire walks on stage. He seems almost reticent as he acknowledges his audience at Fox's Music House in North Charleston, South Carolina—most of ...

Dave Bass: No Boundaries

Read "No Boundaries" reviewed by Rob Rosenblum


While No Boundaries is technically led by pianist Dave Bass, it seems that the company is kind of burying the lead. The real headliner here is the multi talented Ted Nash. Nash certainly has a jazz pedigree, with both a father and an uncle who were top notch performers themselves. Nash has also been ...

Tim Ray: Excursions and Adventures

Read "Excursions and Adventures" reviewed by Rob Rosenblum


Although hidden away in classrooms at the Berklee School of Music or as the accompanying pianist with vocalist Tony Bennett, Tim Ray is a pianist of the highest order and this album offers all the evidence needed to prove the case. Ray's supporting cast are two exceptionally subtle and responsive players—John Patitucci, who is ...

Eric Wyatt: The Golden Rule: for Sonny

Read "The Golden Rule: for Sonny" reviewed by Rob Rosenblum


The Golden Rule: For Sonny sounds at times like a Sonny Rollins cover, especially on those tunes where Rollins' nephew and frequent sideman, trombonist Clifton Anderson, joins the front line, but a second listen shows that there is a lot more than slavish idolatry here. Wyatt is a talented young tenor player, whose admiration ...

Cannonball: A Man of the People

Read "Cannonball: A Man of the People" reviewed by Rob Rosenblum


This interview was conducted at Union College in Schenectady, New York in 1971 and was originally published in an arts newspaper called Transition. Julian Cannonball Adderley was only three when he began to dig jazz and his hunger for his music is yet to be satiated. The first music he remembers hearing was in ...

Greg Abate & The Tim Ray Trio: Gratitude: Stage Door Live @ the Z

Read "Gratitude: Stage Door Live @ the Z" reviewed by Rob Rosenblum


If you are going to be a bebop purist, you have to resist the temptation to dress your music up to appeal to the masses. Greg Abate is one of those brave souls who worship at the altar of Charlie Parker, and depends on pure inspiration to capture his audience's attention. Gratitude: Stage Door ...

Richie Cole: Cannonball

Read "Cannonball" reviewed by Rob Rosenblum


Richie Cole and Julian “Cannonball" Adderley. It's as natural as soap and water. In an interview on this site, Cole proclaimed that the famed jazz musician was his favorite altoist. Like Adderley, Cole can cover a wide range of music--from the hardest of hard bop to commercial ditties. And also like Adderley, for Cole the audience ...

Eric Bernhardt: The Four Sidemen Of The Apocalypse

Read "The Four Sidemen Of The Apocalypse" reviewed by Rob Rosenblum


On the surface, Eric Bernhardt is one of the many faceless, aspiring jazz musicians who hit the clubs on Frenchman Street in New Orleans, playing for tips and hoping to get noticed. What separates him from the rest is that he is a monster jazz musician. Recently encountered in a desperate-looking club called the ...
