Ron Oswanski

Though Ron Oswanski is one of the most prodigious Hammond B3 players on a jazz scene rife with rising organ talent, he’s just starting to introduce himself as a force in his own right. Also an accomplished accordion player, Oswanski has forged a lithe, lyrical and rhythmically charged contemporary sound steeped in the B3’s earthy roots but informed by post-bop developments. With his finely calibrated sense of dynamics and expansive harmonic palette, he can burn with the best of them, and then slow things down for an exquisitely crafted ballad. He showcases his multifaceted sensibility on his stellar CD December’s Moon, a revelatory debut album featuring heavyweights such as guitarist John Abercrombie, bassist John Patitucci, drummer Clarence Penn, and saxophonist Tim Ries, who produced the project

Leonieke Scheuble's Journey Into The Art Of Jazz

Read "Leonieke Scheuble's Journey Into The Art Of Jazz" reviewed by David A. Orthmann

The setting is a living room in a suburban northern New Jersey home. For the most part, it's filled with things not necessarily available at the furniture outlets that line the local highways. An upright piano takes up most of the wall adjacent to the front door. A harpsichord spans the area between the entrances to ...

Dan Willis and Velvet Gentlemen: The Satie Project II

Read "Dan Willis and Velvet Gentlemen: The Satie Project II" reviewed by Dave Wayne

The music of Eric Satie may well be some of the most malleable and adaptable works ever composed. This could be partly due to the fact that Satie himself stood well outside of the musical mainstream of his time, thus his compositions are comparatively unencumbered by the stylistic baggage of his era. Satie was avant-garde before ...

Tom Dempsey: Saucy

Read "Saucy" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Highly-regarded New York City session guitarist Tom Dempsey's sixth solo endeavor pays homage to the classic organ combo format, topped with a piquant sense of swing. Tuneful and capacious, the guitarist's dark- toned sound nicely parallels with organist Ron Oswanski's warm phrasings, synchronous progressions and sleek solos. Dempsey's Wes Montgomery-like chord solos and soul-jazz riffs are ...

Ron Oswanski: December's Moon

Read "December's Moon" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello

With the possible exception of “love" and “you," “moon" enters as a most-welcomed word-muse to performers, composers and lyricists. When “jazz organ" enters into that equation, the expected aural summation might be the blues-infused funk of Jimmy Smith or the steamy straight-ahead of Joey DeFrancesco.December's Moon from multi-keyboardist/composer--and now leader--Ron Oswanski, is a performance ...

Read "December's Moon" reviewed by Edward Blanco

A modernist with the Hammond B-3 organ, Ron Oswanski introduces himself as leader for the first time crafting a vibrant modern jazz, almost fusion-like in texture, musical experiment on December's Moon. On tap are a host of exciting new originals as well as creative and swinging arrangements of music from trumpeter Kenny Wheeler whose “Kayak, and ...

Read "Carl Fischer & Organic Groove Ensemble: Adverse Times" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello

Carl Fischer & Organic Groove Ensemble Adverse Times Fisch Music 2010 Sometimes it seems that trumpet players get more of the spotlight than other instrument-playing bandleaders.
