Yimba Rudo is the self-titled recording debut by a trio consisting of vibraphonist-percussionist Kevin Norton, bassist Steve LaSpina and drummer-percussionist Jim Pugliese. “Yimba Rudo” (which means “Sing Love” in Zimbabwe’s Shona language) is an adventurous yet accessible avant-garde jazz group that displays the influence of African rhythms and World Music. During the thought-provoking set by the chamber jazz trio, Yimba Rudo explores seven originals by Norton, four from Pugliese and a pair by LaSpina. Each of the musicians has their opportunities to be in the lead in the democratic group.
Among the highlights are “Reconcile The Classical View” (which has a sly bass pattern behind the vibes solo), the percussive theme and variety of sounds of “Toronto,” the stormy interplay by bass and drums on “Moonstruck,” several introspective ballads (including “Winter Retreat,” a gloomy “The Faustian Bargain,” and “Tearing Down Walls”), and the catchy “Walking The Dogma.” Utilizing both improvised and worked-out ensembles, the trio thinks as one, following each other’s ideas spontaneously and creating their own style of music.
Each of the members of Yimba Rudo has a long and impressive resume. Kevin Norton has performed with everyone from Anthony Braxton to Milt Hinton including Fred Frith, Scott Robinson, John Zorn, Connie Crothers and Paul Dunmall. He founded the Barking Hoop label (which is releasing Yimba Rudo) in 1999.James Pugliese has ranged from adventurous jazz and rock to experimental music in his career, appearing on over 90 CDs. He has performed with the New York City Ballet and in the New York Philharmonic Horizon Series, recorded the music of Edgar Varese and Charles Wuorinen when he was 18, and among his diverse associations have been John Zorn, Marc Ribot, Bobby Previte, John Cage, and Philip Glass.
Steve LaSpina has been an important bassist on the New York jazz scene for over three decades. Along the way he has worked with such greats as Benny Carter, Chet Baker, Marian McPartland, the Mel Lewis Orchestra, Stan Getz, Phil Woods, Jim Hall, Carmen McRae, Randy Brecker and countless others in the who’s who of jazz.
All three of the musicians have also worked and recorded as leaders. Now, as they combine their skills as Yimba Rudo, they are creating fresh new music that deserves a close listen.

REBECCA DUMAINE
AND THE DAVE MILLER TRIO Appearing at
Savanna Jazz
Saturday, July 13th 8:00 pm – 11:30 pm
Tickets & InfoNEW CD
REBECCA DUMAINE
AND THE DAVE MILLER COMBO
“CHEZ NOUS”Summit Records SMT-748
Street Date: June 7, 2019
shem.gif

Jazz singer Rebecca DuMaine releases Chez Nous, a program with 14 superior standards that are given swinging and infectious treatments.

Rebecca DuMaine has a beautiful tone, impeccable articulation, swinging phrasing that finds her placing every note in the perfect spot, and an inviting musical personality. On her newest Summit release, Chez Nous, the jazz singer is joined by pianist Dave Miller (her father), bassist Chuck Bennett, drummer Bill Belasco and, on eight of the 14 selections, guitarist Brad Buethe.  With Miller contributing colorful solos sometimes reminiscent of George Shearing, Buethe adding fire, versatility and creative ideas on guitar, and Bennett and Belasco offering a solid foundation, Rebecca DuMaine has the perfect group for her warm vocalizing.

The wide-ranging program is filled with highlights. The playful “When In Rome” (inspired by Blossom Dearie) begins the set on a joyful note. Antonio Carlos Jobim’s “So Danco Samba,” which has Ms. DuMaine singing in Portuguese, is followed by a surprising medium-tempo version of “I’ve Never Been In Love Before” (normally performed as a ballad), a cooking rendition of the ironic “Everything I’ve Got Belongs To You,” Rebecca singing “ChezMoi” is French, and “I Didn’t Know What Time It Was” which includes the rarely-heard verse. A Latinized version of “Tangerine, ” an emotional rendition of “Yesterday” (featuring a father-daughter duet) and the happy 1930s swing tune “You’re Getting To Be A Habit With Me” precede a soulful revival of Grover Washington’s “Just The Two Of Us,” the optimistic “Give Me The Simple Life,” a transformation of the waltz “Alice In Wonderland” into a swinger in 4/4 time, and the obscure Rodgers & Hart song “Do It The Hard Way.” The memorable program concludes with Rebecca singing in both French and English on “Que Reste-t-il/I Wish You Love.”

Rebecca DuMaine was raised in the San Francisco Bay area where her father Dave Miller has led his trio since the 1970s. Although she always loved to sing, her first career was as an actress on stage in New York City and regionally, as well as in commercials and voice-overs. Over time she found that she preferred singing jazz over musical theater. Since moving back to Northern California in 2010, Rebecca has worked regularly with her father’s trio, recording four CDs (Deed I Do, Better Than Anything, The Consequence Of You and Happy Madness) prior to Chez Nous.

Rebecca DuMaine, who consistently digs into the meanings behind the lyrics, has the ability to make even the most familiar song her own. Chez Nous is a major step forward in her career.

INKY DoT MEDIA
Announces the 45-rpm Red Vinyl EP release—Steve Tintweiss Spacelight Band
“Whistle Stop Tour” b/w “Ash Dung Blues”IDM 2018 EP001
shem.gif
This record inaugurates the INKY DoT MEDIA imprint, launched to share the contents of Tintweiss’s voluminous recording archive; moreover, IDM 001 is the first officially published recording of bassist Steve Tintweiss as composer or bandleader.
The Steve Tintweiss Spacelight Band: guest artist Byard Lancaster (alto saxophone);
Ric Frank (tenor saxophone); Steve Tintweiss (double bass, composer, leader);
Lou Grassi (drums);On side A: Rowan Storm (vocals and doumbek drums); whistling by Tintweiss and ensemble.Recorded Labor Day, September 7, 1992 at Forest Park Bandshell, Queens NY City.
Tintweiss founded the Spacelight Band in 1976 as a flagship ensemble for showcasing his music. Like all of his efforts, this ensemble was dedicated to performing his unique compositions—both newly composed works and the durable staples of his catalog of original music and lyrics, in the tradition of modern jazz with modern poetic lyrics. The name, band, and concept continued with minor personnel changes into the 21st Century. These 1992 tracks are among the best versions of two standout originals, as selected by composer Tintweiss, who produced the performance and this release.

Best known internationally as bassist on the final Albert Ayler live recordings in France at the Maeght Foundation, and numerous pioneering ESP-Disk’ albums including the Patty Waters Sings rendition of “Black is the Color of My True Love’s Hair”, Steve Tintweiss now introduces on this recording his activities as iconic free-form jazz artist, composer, bandleader and producer of avant-garde music concerts in the greater New York City area over the past 55 years.
Since the mid-1960s, Steve Tintweiss has played bass with Albert Ayler, Sam Rivers, Gato Barbieri, Patty Waters, Perry Robinson, Byard Lancaster, Burton Greene, and many other legendary jazz artists. In the very active musical ferment of the Sixties, he appeared throughout the northeast with the Burton Greene Quartet, Ms. Waters, the Uni Trio, and in the panoply of loft sessions, rehearsals, radio broadcasts, jams, benefits—from Tompkins Square Park to Woodstock, New York arts venues. He played bass with Van Morrison in multiple rehearsals for a pending Bert Berns produced Bang recording session to establish Van’s solo career in the US. 
A graduate of Queens College, Steve studied with bassists Steve Swallow, Gary Peacock, and David Izenzon. Formal studies in electronic music composition with Hubert Howe and John Watts, as well as jazz arranging with John Carisi, enhanced his musical style.
Tintweiss’s own bands began with the Purple Why in 1966, delivering his tunes as played and sung with the free flow of Jazz improvisation and the raw energy of psychedelic rock. Forthcoming releases in 2019 will illuminate the whole breadth of that group: They haunted Town Hall, St. Mark’s Church, Studio We, the Village, Lincoln Center Bandshell, Peace Ship, public radio, libraries and Forest Park Bandshell in Queens, helping to stake out the turf that was later declared Loft Jazz by the New York Musicians Organization in 1972. By the mid-Seventies, those early groups gave way to the Spacelight Band as the major vehicle for his music. 
He founded the New York Free Music non-profit association in 1969 and has received grants from New York State Council on the Arts, Poets & Writers, Meet the Composer, AT&T, and Queens Council on the Arts.As Chairman/Founder, Steve produced concerts that presented a wide range of styles, including jazz, blues, rock, punk (featuring early Blondie performances in Forest Park), classical, dance, and poetry, in public programs emphasizing cutting-edge avant-garde styles. 
Mr. Tintweiss was selected to be String Coordinator and Arts Administrator for Queens Symphony Orchestra CETA Artists Program in 1979 (he managed a string quartet, a brass quintet and a woodwind quintet), which presented 540 concerts, workshops and open rehearsals in 53 weeks of existence. Steve was the bass player for Albert Ayler’s final tour at Maeght Foundation which resulted in a 1970 French Grand Prix du Disque for best album, In/Memoriam, Swing Journal Silver Award 1971 in Japan, and a documentary movie of the event by Jean-Michel Meurice titled Albert Ayler, Le Dernier Concert (France 1970). He continues to expand his music production activities as an entrepreneur and archivist—exploring the realm of new media technology including virtual reality high-definition audio, video, and multimedia.

IN CONCERT, DENNY ZEITLIN
RE-IMAGINES COMPOSITIONS
MILES DAVIS WROTE,

MAY HAVE APPROPRIATED, OR WAS ASSOCIATED WITH
OVER HIS LONG CAREER

shem.gif

Sunnyside Records SSC 1553

for Denny Zeitlin Solo Piano: Remembering Miles
CRITICAL ACCLAIM

“On Remembering Miles Denny Zeitlin takes all the measures of what makes pianism great and relocates them to another rarefied realm… There is nothing contrived or attention-seeking about his approach… His traversal of this music is instantly spellbinding for all the right reasons… Everywhere Mr. Zeitlin strikes a compelling balance between volatility and elegance, while maintaining the intuitive sensibility of a jazz artist.” Raul da Gama, JazzdaGama
“…Remembering Miles represents the culmination of six decades of recorded jazz by Denny Zeitlin and you have to listen to it to truly understand how special it is in terms of the gift of the experience and genius that Denny brings to his music. Few pianists could have rendered the music of Miles Davis in a solo piano setting with such discrimination and heartfelt sincerity.”  Steven Cerra, Jazzprofiles.blogspot
“… An extraordinary recording career that began in 1963…with [this 2019 CD] Zeitlin taking these selected tunes on–and interpreting liberally–with just his piano and his own idiosyncratic reimaginings, you get an essence of two souls… Zeitlin is always startlingly virtuosic, and he is blessed with freewheeling improvisational elasticity… One of the most compelling and beautiful albums of Denny Zeitlin’s career.” 
Dan McClenaghan, AllAboutJazz

“… Denny’s solo piano approach here is more to use the songs almost like loose backdrops for sonic poetry–these incredibly complex lines on the piano that are at once free and melodic, modern and meaningful… The album is as revolutionary as anything the pianist recorded decades back…” DustyGroove
“… By the end of Zeitlin’s recital, it is fair to marvel at the range of Davis’s music, of course, but also at the versatility of this pianist, a master of so many styles and approaches… Denny Zeitlin is a musician who never got stuck in one way of approaching the art…” Will Layman, PopMatters
“… Doing more with a solo piano than anyone else can, Zeitlin serves as an explosive and revelatory meeting of the minds that finds the octogenarian playing with the verve and smarts of a 20-year-old with an old soul. Another in a series of penultimate dates from the master.” Chris Spector, MidwestRecord
“… By reaping the best of both worlds and respecting Miles’ original portrayals of his songs and moving them forward with imaginative, dynamically fresh takes, Denny Zeitlin pays ultimate homage to Miles Davis. The Prince of Darkness was a master at recognizing other people’s good ideas and making them great; Zeitlin does the same while he’s Remembering Miles.”  S. Victor Aaron, SomethingElseReviews
“… Denny Zeitlin is a master. His love for this music comes shining through the notes he plays and how he rearranges the song so you hear them  anew… Splendid recording, sweet sound, and great music…”  Richard B. Kamins, StepTempest.blogspot
“Arriving on the jazz scene in the mid-60s while simultaneously practicing and teaching psychiatry, pianist Denny Zeitlin has consistently conducted his musical career on multiple tracks. He has played postbop as well as free improv, veered between electric and acoustic settings, drawn from classical composition and fusion, and played solo when he wasn’t leading duos, trios, or larger ensembles…all those influences resonate through the music heard on Remembering Miles…it all adds up to an intriguing collection of Miles’ musical stories, familiar but given refreshing new spins.”
Philip Booth, JazzTimes
“one of our most lyrical pianists, Denny Zeitlin delivers a tour de force solo performance, interpreting songs from the wide ranging Miles Davis songbook… Like his previous interpretation of Wayne Shorter material, this one’s a real treat and a moving tribute to an artist that bridged wide gaps…”  George W. Harris, JazzWeekly
“… Zeitlin’s a master at reconstructing melody, mood, and movement, making a meal out of nuance in the great artists of the times– himself included… Denny Zeitlin puts a lot of his own adventurous, thought-provoking spirit into each and every weird and wonderful note for quite a show, and quite an album.” Carol Banks Weber, FestivalPeak
“…[Remembering Miles] is one of Zeitlin’s finest and best solo piano releases and is a must-listen… Pianist Denny Zeitlin is a master of solo performance. His solo piano concerts are always memorable and not to be missed…”
Doug Simpson, Audiophile Audition (AudAud)

Back in Baby’s Arms – A Chicago Tribute to Patsy Cline featuring Harmonica Maestro Howard Levy
with Susie Blue & the Lonesome Fellas

 

Chicago’s Susie Blue & the Lonesome Fellas has a new single out for summer, a tribute to the great Patsy Cline with an updated, feisty cover of  “Back in Baby’s Arms”.   The band has been making history as Chicago’s most notorious and innovative Western Swing Group, but over the past year they have been busting genres  with a unique Chicago-styled Rockabilly and Retro Country sound, releasing singles that have hit the airwaves on radio stations like BBC Radio, NPR, Dublin FM, WFUV and thousands of other Alternative  based radio stations across the US and Internationally.   Their recent single, a vocal version of the Peter Gunn Theme that was written by Henry Mancini for Sarah Vaughan, crossed over from Alternative to Jazz and Blues radio stations featuring a boisterous horn section with Chicago sax maestro Eric Schneider and trombonist Jack Gallagher.   And now the band frolics back to their Retro Country roots with sui generis update of the classic Patsy Cline favorite.
The song opens at a rollicking pace with harmonica maestro Howard Levy of Bela Fleck and the Flecktones  flirting through the first few bars, inviting the listener into the familiar tune but at a faster and more boisterous pace than we are accustomed to.  Neal Alger plays a distorted rockabilly guitar  while drummer Phil Gratteau lays out a combustable tempo that even Paul Cook of the Sex Pistols would be proud of.  Vocalist Solitaire Miles holds the original song down with her Cline-esque  vocal,  keeping the sound nostalgic,  while Levy cavorts around her swing-styled back phrasing,  transforming the song into a romping melee of genres.   Neal Alger has a rockabilly style solo, but remains arioso since Alger is also a jazz guitarist.   In fact  all of the band are veterans of the Chicago Jazz scene, but they have been transforming their styles and sounds over the past year, to create a rockabilly/jazz amalgamation to the delight of many listeners across the globe.
So if you’re looking for a fun and frisky song to play at a party or just jam to in your car,  this single will hit your nostalgic meter at 10 and also get you singing along with the classic  lyrics for an entertaining and lively 3 minutes, and maybe make you want to play it all over again.     – Jean M Reid, Chicago Music Guide.
You can find the song at itunes, Amazon, CD Baby and at their
Bandcamp page

“I​ had so much fun creating this album! I hope you enjoy listening to it as much asI did making it.This is the first instrumental project I went into a live studio to record. The goal was to capture the sound of an era of music that has shaped the musical landscape we have today. I studied the music of Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Art Blakey, BadBadNotGood, and Adrian Younge before writing a single note. I think I captured THE sound. What is THE sound? “Shapes Of Music, Vol. 2” fuses together Hip-Hop, Jazz, RnB and Soul to deliver, what I believe, is a modern album with a classic sound like no other. ​” -​ ​Statik Link
About Statik LinkHailing from the Midwest, Statik Link, crashed onto the scene in 2014 creating his own lane for his unique sound. A live instrumentalist and producer, Statik Link intricately blurs the line of Jazz, Funk, and Soul while remaining true to his own raw, uncut, gritty sound.

His conducting, his trombone playing, and his arranging set the standard for countless musicians to strive for, however futile a task that may be.(Thank you, Slide!)”

GARY LUCAS NEWS AND UPCOMING APPEARANCES

Gary Lucas plays “The Goddess” at TIFF—the Transylvania International Film Festival 6/5/19   photo by Nicu Cherciu

GARY LUCAS recently sold-out two consecutive live film score appearances— the first on June 5th at the Transylvania International Film Festival in the old Basilica in Cluj Romania,  where Lucas’s live solo guitar score for Wu Yonggang’s classic 1934 Chinese silent film “The Goddess” was featured as part of the Focus China film series in the old Orthodox Basilica. Gary received a standing ovation for his live score, and much praise from the China Film Archive team behind the restoration of the original film print:

“Thank you very much Mr. Gary Lucas for playing the soundtrack to “The Goddess” at TIFF. Gary Lucas uses his guitar plus his understanding of the film to show the essence of “The Goddess” vividly. At the climax of the film, his guitar score drives the audience to tears. This is the best time I’ve seen famous diva actress Ruan Lingyu‘s show-stopping scene driven by music outside of China. Lucas’ score promotes the integration of Eastern and Western cultures, so that European audiences can better understand the film.”

–Jiao Xiang, head of the China Film Archive restoration team, Beijing 2019.6.18

Gary then returned to NYC to play his live film score for “The Golem” (1920, d. Paul Wegener ad Carl Boese) on June 15th at a sold-out screening with a newly restored print of the film courtesy Kino-Lorber– part of an ongoing retrospective of his live film scores at The Metrograph, NYC’s premier arthouse cinema,. curated by Jacob Perlin and Robert Melvin Rubin.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Lucas’ score which he debuted with his collaborator Walter Horn at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria in 1989, and has since gone on to perform in 20 plus countries.

Next up: a free concert on the Joe’s Pub Outdoors Stage with his longstanding Chinese pop project THE EDGE OF HEAVEN,

featuring Feifei Yang on vocals and erhu and Jason Candler on sax—part of the Make Music New York Festival.

VIC JURIS Needs Our Help


shem.gif
On June 14th, 2019, after a week of unexplained fatigue on his gigs, the great jazz guitarist VIC JURIS, one of kindest and most talented musicians in the world, was diagnosed with metastatic liver cancer. He is currently at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, NJ, receiving treatment.

Due to complications, we don’t yet know when Vic will be able to go home, to continue treatment, and work towards recovery, but we’re praying it will be soon.

Kate Baker, Vic’s wife, has informed us that while Vic does have some medical insurance, it only covers part of his needed treatment. It will be a long recovery before he’ll be able to work again so he needs help with his living expenses.

We are reaching out to our great musical community and friends for donations to help Vic through this terrible ordeal.

Most of all…Vic needs our positive loving thoughts and prayers as he travels the difficult road ahead.

Thank you in advance for any words you want to share with Vic and any financial help you would like to offer. Please spread the word.

Vic really needs us…

Gunnar Mossblad & Dave Stryker
