The Pete McGuinness Jazz Orchestra: Along for the Ride

Read "Along for the Ride" reviewed by Jack Bowers

On the third album as leader of his superlative New York-based Jazz Orchestra, trombonist Pete McGuinness proves again that he is one of the more astute and resourceful composer / arrangers on the scene today. From “Put on a Happy Face" through “One for the Maestro," McGuinness' impressive charts are decorous models of warmth and perception. ...

The Pete McGuinness Jazz Orchestra: Strength in Numbers

Read "Strength in Numbers" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Il jazz orchestrale cresce e si alimenta grazie anche al magistrale influsso esercitato da Bob Brookmeyer su decine di allievi al New England Conservatory.

The Pete McGuinness Jazz Orchestra: First Flight

Read "First Flight" reviewed by Jack Bowers

On the aptly named First Flight, the inaugural recording as leader of his own big band, Pete McGuinness does almost everything except drive the band bus and clean up the studio afterward--and I wouldn't doubt that he did that as well. McGuinness wrote six of the album's nine tunes, arranged them all, crafts likable trombone solos ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
