The BBB Featuring Bernie Dresel: The Pugilist

Read "The Pugilist" reviewed by Jack Bowers


No, drummer Bernie Dresel hasn't taken a day gig at the Los Angeles-area Better Business Bureau; the BBB in front of his name stands for Bernie's Big Band or Bernin' Big Band or Bernie's Bernin' Band or something like that. It's really hard to say, as the band's full name isn't spelled out anywhere, even on ...

Jon Armstrong Sextet: Reabsorb

Read "Reabsorb" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Saxophonist Jon Armstrong reminds us that life and death are two sides of the same coin. Although seemingly disparate, like two sides of an LP, they cannot be separated. His sextet recording Reabsorb models this contrasting device by presenting two contrasting compositions, one on each side of an LP (also available as a CD and download). ...

After all, Pocatello is a far cry from the multi-cultural hustle and bustle of his hometown of Los Angeles. It's not surprising that Armstrong's new album, Burnt Hibiscus is a ...

Jon Armstrong Jazz Orchestra: Farewell

Read "Farewell" reviewed by Dave Wayne


I am beginning to wonder if every jazz musician has, in some dark corner of their psyche, a suppressed ambition to lead a big band. Economically unfeasible, logistically impossible--but artistically gratifying--a big band is perhaps the ultimate way to make manifest one's greatest musical ambitions. You get to conduct, pick your own solos, compose and arrange ...

Kirsten Edkins: Art & Soul

Read "Art & Soul" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian


Saxophonist Kirsten Edkins delivers a delightful and charming batch of mainstream jazz with her engaging and exuberant debut Art & Soul. The tracks alternate between soulful, smoky burners and cooler, airier ones with relaxed tempos and intricate arrangements. Keyboardist Larry Goldings' earthy, simmering Hammond B3 often drives the former type. For instance, “Mean Greens" ...
