Rising Malian singer and songwriter Fatoumata Diawara has been nominated for two Grammy™ Awards. Her critically acclaimed Fenfo in the Best World Music category and for her collaboration with UK based electronic music duo Disclosure on the song “Ultimatum” in the Best Dance Recordingcategory.

The 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards®. Music’s Biggest Night® returns to Los Angeles’ STAPLES Center on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019, and will broadcast live on the CBS Television Network at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. Nominations for the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards will be announced in all 84 categories on Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2018, and will honor the best in recordings released between Oct. 1, 2017, and Sept. 30, 2018.

Fatoumata has performed with some of the biggest names in contemporary music, including Bobby Womack, Herbie Hancock, Roberto Fonseca, Amadou & Mariam, Oumou Sangaré, Toumani Diabaté, Flea, David Crosby, Snarky Puppy and many more. From an appearance January 2018 at Carnegie Hall, Rolling Stone noted that “the singer and guitarist, originally from Mali, provided two of the night’s most striking moments. Her ode to the power of women, ‘Mousso,’ sung in her native language, was hypnotic, and her captivating stage spins enhanced her anthemic ‘Unite.’”

Diawara broke out in 2011 with her debut album, Fatou, which featured guest performances from legendary musicians John Paul Jones, Tony Allen and Toumani Diabaté. The record was hailed by Pitchfork as a “beguiling album” that “simply surrounds you with its atmosphere,” while The Guardian praised it as “an enjoyable, impressive set.”

THE EBONY HILLBILLIES –
THE PREMIER AFRICAN-AMERICAN STRING BAND IN AMERICA!

From the street corners of Manhattan to the hallowed stages of Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center to TV appearances on the BBC and ABC’s “Good Morning America,” The Ebony Hillbillies are a true phenomenon, reviving the lost art form and American legacy of string band music for a whole new generation.

Continuing to bring a fresh urgency to the genre for a 21st Century world in need of some deep musical education, the dynamic ensemble – led by Henrique Prince (fiddle, vocals) with Norris Bennett (banjo, mountain dulcimer, guitar, vocals), Gloria Thomas Gassaway (on vocals and bones), acoustic bassist William “Salty Bill” Salter (3x-Grammy winning co-writer of legendary pop hits like “Where is the Love” and “Just The Two of Us”), Allanah Salter (shaker, vocals), Newman Taylor Baker/Ricky “Dirty Red” Gordon (washboard percussion) and A.R. on “cowboy” percussion kit – are releasing their latest full length album, 5 MILES FROM TOWN [EH MUSIC].

Infused with the Hillbillies’ trademark mix of pop, country, bluegrass, folk and jazz, the full length collection reflects a soulful, gritty and alternately funky, romantic and socially conscious place where toes are always tapping, percussion is slapping, fiddles are jamming, front porch chairs are rocking, banjos are plucking and voices are raised in determination and triumph.

Mixing lively instrumentals and vocals over the course of 11 tracks and 3 alternately playful and hard-hitting snippets/skits, the group performs everything from a down home fiddle jam (“Hog”), the gentle romantic cautionary tale “Fork in the Road” and an intimate cover of Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me” to the incisive social commentaries “Another Man Done Gone (Hands Up Don’t Shoot)” (about black men and police shootings) and “I’m on My Way To Brooklyn,” which rolls as a lighthearted NYC inspired spiritual until the end…and three gunshots.

The Ebony Hillbillies started out on the streets of Manhattan, but their vibe and influence has extended over the years to acclaimed live performances at legendary venues like Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center; appearances on the BBC, Good Morning America, NBC, CBS, etc., international music workshops and festivals, visual artist collaborations at museums (including The Whitney with phenom Kara Walker and The Smithsonian Museum), Guest school programs, Foot stomping and Hand-clapping Dance parties and more. In the digital era, they have sold thousands of hard copies of their four CDs – Sabrina’s Holiday, I Thought You Knew, Barefoot and Flying and 2015’s Slappin’ A Rabbit – Live! – at their shows and via their globally popular website, https://www.theebonyhillbillies.com/home

Funeral Services for James Jordan

shem.gif

Funeral services for James Jordan, the retired, former Director of Music Programs for the New York State Council on the Arts, will be held on Tuesday, December 18th at 11 a.m. EST at Benta’s Funeral Home in Harlem. Benta’s is located at 630 St. Nicholas Avenue.  Visitation begins at 10:30 a.m.

Statement from  Denardo Coleman

To all of our friends we are sad to relay the news that Ornette’s cousin and long time manager, James Jordan has passed away at the age of 87.
James and Ornette were inseparable virtually growing up as brothers in Fort Worth Texas. Both played in the Mother AME Church band as well as the IM Terrel high school band. James on tenor sax.
James played professionally in big bands for Big Joe Turner, BB King and others.
James then went on to begin a successful career working as a music educator in Columbus, Texas, and as a member of a popular jazz band in Austin. He later became a community activist in the war on poverty, and served as Executive Director of the Human Opportunities Corporation in Travis County.
In the late 1960s Ornette asked James to join him in New York as his manager. They went on to accomplish many milestones including mounting Ornette’s historic symphonic work Skies of America. The belief and support that Ornette could compose such a work was not there. With that, James managed to secure advances for 2 jazz combo recordings from Columbia Records. Unbeknownst to the company he and Ornette flew off to England where they hired the London Symphony Orchestra. There they recorded what was to be one of Ornette’s seminal albums, Skies of America, James Jordan producer.
Subsequently James Jordan’s unique qualifications came to the attention of the New York State Council on the Arts. James was asked to become the Director of the State Council’s Music Program. He would be with the Council for 29 years, retiring in 2005.
The NYS Council for the Arts serviced all of the state’s arts institutions from the Metropolitan Opera to the AACM NY Concert Series. With James as director countless small creative arts organizations knew they had a champion in the State House. Someone who truly understood how important it was to support the independent artist.
As a leading figure in Jazz related work, James was the founding secretary of the board for the creation of the National Jazz Service Organization.
He also served as Chairperson of the Policy Panel for Jazz as well as for the Grants Panel for the National Endowment for the Arts
After retirement James, rejoined Ornette as his personal manger. They went on to tour the world for the next several years. Including performances of Skies of America in Europe.
James Jordan–another one of Fort Worth’s giants.

Dear music lover, colleague, friend, and/or family (or all of the above!),

I’m writing to let you know about an Indiegogo campaign that we’ve just launched for a new TV pilot called “Rhythms of Life with Arturo O’Farrill.

Most of the important things in life — culture, family, work, love and politics — are shared through music. It’s the universal language. Arturo uses music as a window into the lives of people around the world.

Arturo is a six-time Grammy Award winner as well as a warm, enthusiastic performer with an abundant mix of curiosity, scholarship, and talent. He has performed all over the globe teaching and learning at every location. Arturo is a natural for TV, and the pilot episode for this program will bring that home.

In divisive times, it is important to focus on what brings us together. Music is a language that emanates from the soul and is expressed through culture. Think along the lines of Anthony Bourdain’s “Parts Unknown,” featuring local musicians in domestic and foreign locations.

Please check it out here, and if you’re interested in helping the project come to life, make a contribution — any amount is welcome, of course — and there are some perks involved, too.

We have a cinematographer and production company in place to shoot this pilot in February of 2019 while Arturo and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra will be in residence at NYU Abu Dhabi. The residency will include a mambo concert, master classes, and a final concert featuring several Middle Eastern musicians and ensembles as well as the ALJO Big Band.

Please see our Indiegogo site to get the big picture and help us to create an even bigger picture for TV audiences in the US and around the world.

With thanks and best wishes for a great holiday,

Fred Miller

A FEW REVIEWS OF DENNY ZEITLIN’S SOLO PIANO PERFORMANCES “…he is an improvisational artist whose skills are so expansive that he can integrate everything he hears into the fabric of his soloing. In the best sense, in the manner that has always been true of jazz’s finest improvisers, Zeitlin constantly stretches the creative envelope, measuring himself only against the infinite demands of his music.”
Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times
“…Zeitlin delivered a riveting solo performance.”
George Goodman, New York Times
“In supreme command of the keyboard…he employs striking dissonances, he constructs extraordinary edifices of harmonics, he can be marvelously pianistic, with a velvet subtlety of touch. He is an original…Denny Zeitlin stretches jazz piano beyond any hitherto defined limits.”
Don Freeman, San Diego Union
“…He didn’t show his brilliance through his technique (which he has), but through subtle improvisation, advanced and finely-tuned harmonic development, and a stupendous internal sense of meter…Denny Zeitlin’s solo piano was the unpretentious highpoint of the festival.”
Munchner Merkur (Munich)

Growing up as a Nuyorican kid in the Bronx, Bobby Sanabria first watched “West Side Story” in the movie theaters, on the 10th anniversary of the film’s release. “I was mesmerized,” said the Latin Jazz drummer and composer. Last year, “West Side Story” celebrated its 60th anniversary and to honor this milestone, Sanabria re-envisioned what Latino New York City actually sounds like. The result was his album, “West Side Story Reimagined.” Maria Hinojosa talks to the drummer and composer about what the iconic musical means to him and how he paid tribute to its legacy.

Celebrate The Musical Legacy Of
Jazz Giant Gil Evans
At Multiple December Events
Discover the enduring influence of renowned NEA Jazz Master and multiple Grammy winner
Gil Evans at Dec. 15 NYPL panel discussion, and more 

shem.gif

You might say December is unofficially Gil Evans month in the Big Apple, as three exciting events turn the spotlight on this legendary jazz composer, arranger, pianist, and long-time Miles Davis collaborator. On the schedule this month are a lively symposium, the release of the first studio album by the Gil Evans Orchestra in more than four decades, and an all-star CD release gig that’s sure to attract a who’s who of the New York music scene.

Gil Evans made a lasting mark on numerous areas of jazz. He led swing dance bands, pioneered the cool school of jazz, and did landmark work with jazz icon Miles Davis, which can be heard on enduringly acclaimed albums such as Sketches of SpainPorgy and BessBirth of the Cool,and others. Evans also delved into electronic music and jazz-rock fusion, drawing new listeners with his arrangements of Jimi Hendrix songs for large brass- and synth-heavy ensembles.

“Gil was a great innovator,” says his son Miles Evans. “He had the next great sound as an orchestrator and arranger, after Duke Ellington.” Gil Evans also had a knack for attracting the cream of the musical crop. In addition to mentoring and collaborating with the greatest jazz musicians across a half century, he formed strong ties and recorded with pop icons like Sting and Paul Schaffer. In recognition of his work, Evans garnered three Grammys and 13 nominations, received one of the first Guggenheim Fellowships ever awarded to a jazz musician, and was named a Jazz Master by the National Endowment for the Arts in 1985, among other honors.

On Dec. 15, at 11 a.m., MOMENT NYC and the NYPL are hosting a symposium on the jazz genius at NYPL for the Performing Arts in the Astor Gallery at 40 Lincoln Center Plaza. Expect to gain insights into Gil Evans’ art and more through presentations by his biographer, Stephanie Stein Crease, the author of “Gil Evans: Out of the Cool: His Life and Music”; Miles Evans, and NYPL’s David McMullin, who will present highlights from the library’s Gil Evans archive. And as with any Gil Evans event, there’s always the chance there will be surprise special guests on hand.

The NYPL for the Performing Arts setting is a good fit for the event, Miles Evans says. “At NYPL, they’re very knowledgeable about Gil’s music. They’re aware that you can hear the Ravel chords in his music, you can hear Debussy; and the people at NYPL know Gil went to the library to listen and study up.”

The event also will include a display of photos, sketches and audio samples from the Evans family’s collection, a Q&A session, and samples of music from a new recording from the Gil Evans Orchestra, “Hidden Treasures Monday Nights, Volume One” (Bopper Spock Suns Music).

The brand-new album, set for Dec. 7 release, is the first studio recording by the Gil Evans Orchestra in more than 40 years. It features several mainstays of the band that held court every Monday for more than a decade at the fabled Greenwich Village club Sweet Basil. Instead of going the “greatest hits” route, “Hidden Treasures” features seldom-heard tunes from the extensive Gil Evans repertoire, many of them written by long-time band stalwarts. “We wanted to showcase the fantastic cast that played with the band,” Noah Evans says. “We wanted to bring back memories of all those great Mondays at Sweet Basil, and bring Gil back to people’s awareness.”

More than a dozen Monday Night Band alumni and several special guests will be on hand Dec. 22 to celebrate the release of “Hidden Treasures Monday Nights, Volume One” at the Cutting Room (44 E. 32ndSt., NY; tickets and info: https://tickets.thecuttingroomnyc.com/event/1796799).

The late Gil Evans was one of the most respected orchestrators in jazz history and his fabled collaborations with Miles Davis, including “Birth of the Cool,” “Sketches of Spain” and “Porgy and Bess,” set the gold standard for modern jazz arranging. Accordingly, Evans played a key role in the development of cool jazz, modal jazz, free jazz and jazz fusion. All of these influences are strikingly present on “Monday Nights,” a particularly contemporary incarnation of Evans’ music. After a string of gigs that started in the late 70s, the Gil Evans Orchestra began a run of Monday night engagements in 1983 at the Greenwich Village club, Sweet Basil, which resulted in a number of successful live recordings by Gil Evans and the Monday Night Orchestra. The gig continued sporadically until 1994. Mr. Evans had a knack for bringing out the best in his groups comprised of first-call New York players including David Sanborn, Alan Rubin and Tom “Bones Malone,” and such musicians as George Adams, Hannibal Marvin Peterson and Howard Johnson. Gil’s sons, trumpeter Miles Evans and his brother Noah are keeping the flame alive with “Hidden Treasures,” a trilogy of recordings of which “Monday Nights” is the first. The concept here, is to feature compositions that the Orchestra played live in the late 70s and early 80s. Forthcoming are “The Classics,” featuring modern renderings of Evans’ original arrangements, including “My Ship,” and “The Meaning of the Blues,” and, the final release in the series, “Gil & Anita,” named for the late jazz icon and his wife. “Subway,” written and arranged by keyboardist Pete Levin opens the album and introduces the imperial command of the ensemble, anchored by drummer Kenwood Dennard. With dynamic twists and turns, and subtle musical shadings, this is one hell of a subway ride. Commanding solos by trombonist Dave Bargeron and tenor saxist Alex Foster, offering some respect for Wayne Shorter, add to the excitement. Trumpeter Miles Evans wrote and arranged “LL Funk” and once again Kenwood Dennard drives the music with a powerful funk beat good for both listening and dancing. With Darryl Jones on bass, special guests’ solos abound: keyboardist Paul Shaffer, even more laid back than usual; the criminally underrated Matthew Garrison and his highly original bass: and Vernon Reid bringing a thick almost heavy metal guitar tip to the track. The icing on the cake is David Mann, who weaves his bluesy, potent alto sax throughout the track. “I Surrender,” written by Delmar Brown and Alex Foster, and arranged by Alex and Charles Blenzig is a musical requiem for a heavyweight. Mr. Brown, a superb keyboardist who played with the Gil Evans Orchestra as well as Pat Martino, passed away in 2017 and “I Surrender” is his tribute. He is also present on several tracks recorded before his passing. A true musical heavyweight, Alex Foster offers another side of his soulful, highly expressive tenor. A very popular composition from the Sweet Basil days, “Groove from the Louvre,” written and arranged by John Clark, features the composer on french horn, trumpeters Shunzo Ohno and then Alex Sipiagin, percussionist Mino Cinelu, who came to prominence with Miles Davis and Weather Report, bass trombonist Dave Taylor. Deft and determined, drummer Dennard anchors the band through the gentle opening, and then the hard edged groove that follows. There’s a regal, totally swinging feel to the track, with superb ensemble work that shows this is more than just a group of soloists, but a real orchestra. “Lunar Eclipse” written by Masabumi Kiuchi and arranged by the master himself, Gil Evans, is evocative and cinematic. An Evans protégé, Gil Goldstein solos here, memorably, amidst a dreamy synthesizer background which follows him through his two solos on the track, the first of which gives away to Mino Cinelu on bongos and then drummer Dennard, raising the musical stakes once again. It’s a heady musical mixture. More of the master on “Moonstruck,” which is short, whimsical and very tasty. Tracking at 1:49, it’s an ensemble feature that’s both intriguing and attention grabbing. The recording closes with “Eleven,” also straight from the source, a Gil Evans composition and arrangement, which originally appeared as “Petits Machins (Little Stuff)on the 1968 Miles Davis recording, Filles de Kilimanjaro. The set closer is a bristling swinger, a fitting capper to this powerful set of absolutely stunning music. The groove is infectious, a potent platform for solos by alto saxophonist Chris Hunter, Charles Blenzig on electric piano and Alex Foster, who returns on tenor and continues to amaze.

Axel Gutzler: Recording/Editing/Mixing/Mastering
Michael Wayszak: Recording Engineer:

Barefoot Dances and Other Visions is a seven-part suite composed in 2014 for the Frankfurt Radio Big Band. Each piece expresses a different kind of fantasy. We performed it live in two concerts in Frankfurt February ’14, then recorded it in the studio in September of that year.

When I wrote this music I had been working with the Frankfurt Radio Big Band for about six years, so I knew the players quite well. The suite was written so that every one of the band’s soloists is placed in a framework that would be both familiar and challenging. Each piece features a pair of soloists, playing individually, sometimes together. Several of the pieces begin with a chamber-sized group, “in front of the curtain”. Then the curtain rises to reveal the whole band, having assumed yet another formation.

Bob’s Here imagines the return of composer/trombonist Bob Brookmeyer, who died in 2011. Black Snow conjures up the vision of a normally tranquil scene, still tranquil but rendered improbably dark. Barefoot Dances are just that, something I’ve never actually done in my life. A Glimmer of Hope tries its best to be optimistic, a difficult task these days. Redman Rides Again imagines the return of the arranger/reedman Don Redman. Among other things he was known for writing fantastic clarinet trios. This piece features a real clarinet trio, and a second “trio” formed by Oliver Leicht and his harmonized clarinet. Falling Upwards: try as I may, I still find it impossible. The Cosmic Hodge-Podge offers a vision of the cosmos where galaxies are replaced by blocks of sound; super novas become solo explosions; and a single black hole emerges at the end, emitting just a smidgen of light.     Jim McNeely

The late Gil Evans was one of the most respected orchestrators in jazz history and his fabled collaborations with Miles Davis, including “Birth of the Cool,” “Sketches of Spain” and “Porgy and Bess,” set the gold standard for modern jazz arranging. Accordingly, Evans played a key role in the development of cool jazz, modal jazz, free jazz and jazz fusion. All of these influences are strikingly present on “Monday Nights,” a particularly contemporary incarnation of Evans’ music. After a string of gigs that started in the late 70s, the Gil Evans Orchestra began a run of Monday night engagements in 1983 at the Greenwich Village club, Sweet Basil, which resulted in a number of successful live recordings by Gil Evans and the Monday Night Orchestra. The gig continued sporadically until 1994. Mr. Evans had a knack for bringing out the best in his groups comprised of first-call New York players including David Sanborn, Alan Rubin and Tom “Bones Malone,” and such musicians as George Adams, Hannibal Marvin Peterson and Howard Johnson. Gil’s sons, trumpeter Miles Evans and his brother Noah are keeping the flame alive with “Hidden Treasures,” a trilogy of recordings of which “Monday Nights” is the first. The concept here, is to feature compositions that the Orchestra played live in the late 70s and early 80s. Forthcoming are “The Classics,” featuring modern renderings of Evans’ original arrangements, including “My Ship,” and “The Meaning of the Blues,” and, the final release in the series, “Gil & Anita,” named for the late jazz icon and his wife. “Subway,” written and arranged by keyboardist Pete Levin opens the album and introduces the imperial command of the ensemble, anchored by drummer Kenwood Dennard. With dynamic twists and turns, and subtle musical shadings, this is one hell of a subway ride. Commanding solos by trombonist Dave Bargeron and tenor saxist Alex Foster, offering some respect for Wayne Shorter, add to the excitement. Trumpeter Miles Evans wrote and arranged “LL Funk” and once again Kenwood Dennard drives the music with a powerful funk beat good for both listening and dancing. With Darryl Jones on bass, special guests’ solos abound: keyboardist Paul Shaffer, even more laid back than usual; the criminally underrated Matthew Garrison and his highly original bass: and Vernon Reid bringing a thick almost heavy metal guitar tip to the track. The icing on the cake is David Mann, who weaves his bluesy, potent alto sax throughout the track. “I Surrender,” written by Delmar Brown and Alex Foster, and arranged by Alex and Charles Blenzig is a musical requiem for a heavyweight. Mr. Brown, a superb keyboardist who played with the Gil Evans Orchestra as well as Pat Martino, passed away in 2017 and “I Surrender” is his tribute. He is also present on several tracks recorded before his passing. A true musical heavyweight, Alex Foster offers another side of his soulful, highly expressive tenor. A very popular composition from the Sweet Basil days, “Groove from the Louvre,” written and arranged by John Clark, features the composer on french horn, trumpeters Shunzo Ohno and then Alex Sipiagin, percussionist Mino Cinelu, who came to prominence with Miles Davis and Weather Report, bass trombonist Dave Taylor. Deft and determined, drummer Dennard anchors the band through the gentle opening, and then the hard edged groove that follows. There’s a regal, totally swinging feel to the track, with superb ensemble work that shows this is more than just a group of soloists, but a real orchestra. “Lunar Eclipse” written by Masabumi Kiuchi and arranged by the master himself, Gil Evans, is evocative and cinematic. An Evans protégé, Gil Goldstein solos here, memorably, amidst a dreamy synthesizer background which follows him through his two solos on the track, the first of which gives away to Mino Cinelu on bongos and then drummer Dennard, raising the musical stakes once again. It’s a heady musical mixture. More of the master on “Moonstruck,” which is short, whimsical and very tasty. Tracking at 1:49, it’s an ensemble feature that’s both intriguing and attention grabbing. The recording closes with “Eleven,” also straight from the source, a Gil Evans composition and arrangement, which originally appeared as “Petits Machins (Little Stuff)on the 1968 Miles Davis recording, Filles de Kilimanjaro. The set closer is a bristling swinger, a fitting capper to this powerful set of absolutely stunning music. The groove is infectious, a potent platform for solos by alto saxophonist Chris Hunter, Charles Blenzig on electric piano and Alex Foster, who returns on tenor and continues to amaze.

Kristin Korb
That Time Of Year

Known for her exuberant spirit and contagious optimism, it is only fitting that bassist and vocalist Kristin Korb has recorded a Christmas project to celebrate her 10th CD and first with Storyville Records.

“I wanted to assemble a program that creates a feeling of “hygge” and joy without being overly sweet or boring. I carefully selected songs from my childhood, songs reflecting long-standing friendships, and songs that are just fun and wintery. This is a soundtrack for tree trimming, lighting candles, and hanging out with those you love.”

On board for this project are Korb’s long-standing trio mates Magnus Hjorth, piano, and Snorre Kirk, drums. As a holiday bonus, the trio is joined by Mathias Heise on harmonica. The sound of Heise’s harmonica fits the voice beautifully and adds and extra sparkle to the entire project.
In contrast to Korb’s recent projects, she has included two instrumentals to feature Mathias on the harmonica and the band as a whole. On “We Three Kings”, the bass, harmonica, and piano all take turns at the melody on the journey. “Angels We Have Heard on High” gets a Brazilian makeover, full of festive energy.

Korb captures that feeling of “hygge” with enough playful twists to freshen up last year’s playlist. That Time of Year will be a welcome addition to your treasured holiday collection.

Jackie McLean’s Artists Collective
Needs Your Financial Support
shem.gif
The Artists Collective founded in 1970 by the late world renowned alto  saxophonist, composer, educator and community activist Jackie McLean as an interdisciplinary arts and cultural institution serving the Greater Hartford area is in danger of closing its doors.
It is the only multi-arts and cultural organization of its kind in Connecticut emphasizing the cultural and artistic contributions of the African Diaspora with emphasis on music and jazz education.
Jackie McLean’s initial intent was to give youth an alternative to street activity, and especially the horrors of drug addiction.
Dwindling corporate and private donations have forced the nearly 50 year old,storied institution to appeal to the public for financial support for the first time since its founding.
The Artists Collective has touched the lives of thousands of Greater Hartford/Connecticut youth and their families by exposing students and the community at large to the great and too often overlooked artists of the past and present, with professional concerts that have featured the great innovators such as: Dizzy Gillespie, Art Blakey and many others. Many of today’s emerging jazz musicians had their first exposure, and earliest training through the Artists Collective, most notably Cindy Blackman and Jimmy Greene to name a few.
The Collective continues to offer the highest quality training in the performing arts-dance, theatre, music and visual arts.
Unfortunately, the challenges facing youth today are even greater now than they were in 1970  when the Collective was founded.
Please consider supporting the Artists Collective today.

Susie Blue and the Lonesome Fellas Release
New Christmas Song
“Santa Bring My Baby Back to Me”

Listen On
Bandcamp
shem.gif
Susie Blue and the Lonesome Fellas release their rollicking new Xmas song “Santa Bring My Baby Back to Me” this week.

“It’s a genre-busting crowd pleaser, sure to please fans of  Americana,  Roots, Blues, Rock, Western Swing and Jazz.  The tune was first performed by Elvis Presley, but the Lonesome Fellas rearm the standard with their unique Chicago sound so it’s a great holiday brew of fun.”  JM Reid, Chicago Music Guide

“Susie Blue and the Lonesome Fellows keep up their habit of genre hopping good times with this fantastically fun take on “Santa Bring My Baby Back to Me” that recalls the Jump Blues sounds of the 40s so effortlessly that it sounds timeless.   It is a perfect addition to any holiday playlist!”  Paul Abella – Music Director WDCB Radio Chicago

“Such fun!  Rockabilly spiced with some funky Blues licks and a hint of Country.   It should keep everyone toasty on a frosty night.” – Rob Hoff, WQLN Jazz Flight

“THIS is the song for Christmas 2018! It’s got Blues, Western Swing, and Jazz.  I like it, very much so!”  – Brian Clardy WKMS Radio
“The new Xmas track from Susie Blue and the Lonesome Fellas is destined to be a seasonal Classic. Paying tribute to all the original forms of American Music – Rockabilly, Western Swing, and pure American Blues, “Santa Bring My Baby Back to Me” is my pick for 2018’s seasonal hit of the year!” – Rockin’ Ritchie Ritch – Rollin’ Rhythm Roundup

“Solitaire Miles, better known as Susie Blue and the Lonesome Fellas skillfully blends Rockabilly, Country and Swing with her new Christmas song “Santa Bring My Baby Back To Me”, transcending all genres. The song appeals to all ages with its toe tapping infectious beat, and a flare of nostalgia for those that remember the times when Big Bands performed at dance halls across the nation. This is Americana at its musical best!”  – Scott Wikle, My Kind of Country

“Jump Blues with a 50s County flavour” – Fred Smith CHRW Western Radio

“People ask what kind of music do I like to play on my show?  I usually tell them GOOD.  Susie Blue and the Lonesome Fellas plays Swing, Blues, Country, etc. –  it’s just another reason why I like the band so much.” – Keith Parnell, Americana 441

 Christmas Jazz CD
From Chris Pasin and Friends
“Baby It’s Cold Outside”

Featuring
Chris Pasin – trumpet
Patricia Dalton Fennell – vocals
Armen Donelian – piano
Peter Einhorn – guitar
Ira Coleman – bass
Jeff Siegel – drums


shem.gif
“This is what a jazz Christmas should be.”
Mark Gilbert, Jazz Journal

“From subtle to sexy to swinging, Chris Pasin and friends shine a brilliant light on the best yuletide favorites.”
Jazz Global Beat

“The trumpeter and several collaborators, including pianist Armen Donelian, toggle between calm introspection and swinging heat as required for their treatments of the usual carols and secular songs.”

Frank John Hadley, Downbeat 
“Baby It’s Cold Outside… is a shiny silver Christmas ornament, and a fine jazz album too. Dalton and Pasin make the title track into a dialogue rather than a song, like a snowbound Nichols and May.”

Michael Eck, Chronogram 

“It’s been a while since I gave trumpeter/flugelhorn player Chris my “PICK” in issue # 158, and now he’s put together a seasonal album that stands out nicely as one of the most cheerful I’ve heard in many years (for those who have been reading us for a while, you’ll know already that I seldom review holiday albums). …. the title track, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside“,…that’s more than enough to let you know how HIP this coming holiday season is going to be… some great dialogue between Chris and vocalist Patricia Dalton Fennell that will put you in the mood for the festivities!”

Rotcod Zzaj 

“Here’s a holiday outing that should satisfy traditionalists and adventurous spirits alike, a true rarity… the scintillating Baby It’s Cold Outside.”
David McGee, Deep Roots

“Baby It’s Cold Outside (Planet Arts – 301714) is a delightful Christmas album from trumpeter CHRIS PASIN. Pasin has enlisted a terrific group of musicians including pianist Armen Donelian, bassist Ira Coleman, drummer Jeff Siegel, bassist Rich Syracuse, guitarist Peter Einhorn and vocalist / producer Patricia Dalton Fennell, mixed them into a variety of combinations, and they have produced an eclectic 11-song program that holds your interest no matter the combination of players.”

Joe Lang, Jersey Jazz

“The highlight for me is the title cut, which has been turned into a two-way conversation between Patricia and Chris — I have heard many different versions of this song over the years, but this has to be the only one that oozes sex. Patricia often proves her vocal skills on other numbers, but here her spoken voice is like warm velvet and combined with the muted trumpet in the background and the laid-back feel of the arrangement makes this something quite extraordinary. Overall this is a beautifully conceived and performed album that is easy to listen to and totally enjoyable from start to end.”
Gonzo Weekly

“Nothing gets music lovers in a celebrating mood like listening to their favorite carols, and this CD, Baby, It’s Cold Outside, delivers a whopping dose of holiday cheer. On 11 of the most-beloved sounds of the season, trumpeter Chris Pasin and friends show they have a real gift for making such familiar material their own, while maintaining the spirit and warmth that’s such a major part of the yuletide celebrations.”

Republic of Jazz

“Perhaps the most notable is the title track, a vocal duet between Pasin and Fennell where the traditional roles are reversed. They turn the lyrics into an overlapping conversation, and Fennell plays the seductress with elan.”
Thomas Cunniffe, JazzHistoryOnline

Diane Moser’s Birdsong Trio

Featuring:
Diane Moser-piano
Anton Denner-flute/piccolo

Ken Filiano-bass



More Info About “Birdsongs” HERE

shem.gif

What the press is saying about Diane Moser’s Birdsongs”

Troy Dostert All About Jazz (USA)
“…..a superlative, brilliantly- conceived recording.”

Brian Zimmerman featured “Song of the Day” JAZZIZ Magazine
The album…creates lush landscapes through delicate brushstrokes and subtle lines, providing ample space for these artists — and the listener — to reflect on the present moment. You’ll feel as though you’ve been transported to your favorite outdoor spot.”

Kev Rowland Gonzo Weekly
“ Inspiring and inspired, this is a wonderful album for all jazz lovers, as well as those who want to hear music which is both beautiful and transcendent.”

Jerome Wilson All About Jazz (UK)
“This CD shows how the sounds of nature can inspire improvisation and be shaped into music of remarkable beauty. It is highly recommended.”

Marc Phillips The Vinyl Anachronist
“The more you listen to Birdsongs, the more exotic and original it becomes, which is why it’s such a special album.”

Kira Gruenberg Downbeat
“Intertwining musical structures with nature’s capricious beauty, Birdsongs provides a vivid oasis for those willing to let imagination lead.”

Fernando Bonete Vizcaino El Debate de Hoy
“A brilliant work, endowed with a superb inventiveness and imagination.”

Dick Metcalf Contemporary Fusion Reviews
“This is some of the most beautiful jazz you’ll ever hear…”

Vittorio Music Zoom
“A chamber jazz album that deserves a repeated listening.”

Leonid Auskern, Jazz Quad,
“Diane and her colleagues play chamber music, very refined, beautiful and inspired by the breath of wildlife. This, of course, is jazz, and high-end jazz.

Lynn René Bayley The Art Music Lounge
“This music is as great as anything I’ve heard accomplished by modern classical composers, and in those moments when Moser’s playing becomes more forward and more rhythmic, it simply acts as another variant in the ongoing musical discourse.”

Robert Bush New York City Jazz Record
“Each musician employs extended techniques on “Dancing With the Sparrows” to evoke the sound of its namesake and when Moser’s magisterial theme emerges, one can almost feel like a member of the conversation.”

Fiona Mactaggart for doobeedoobeedoo
“Birds have inspired many and disparate composers from Messiaen to Hidden Orchestra, and Moser’s Birdsong is a worthwhile addition to the list.This is thoughtfully curated, beautiful music.”

Dee Dee McNeil Musicalmemoirs
“This is a stunningly original package of music that celebrates birds in a very jazzy way.
This is a very beautiful production of original music by Diane Moser, capably interpreted by her stellar piano skills and the two talented musicians who accompany her on bass, flute and piccolo.”

Bruce Gallanter Downtown Music Gallery
“I felt as if I had been walking in the woods and communicating with the birds. Bravo to the immense amount of work that went into this monumental effort.”

Award-winning jazz pianist and composer Diane Moser releases her 7 th CD, Birdsongs, inspired by nature’s most lyrical master improvisers—songbirds. Birdsongs combines virtuoso playing, heartfelt originality, and a unique and personal vibe, resulting in music that is exotic yet accessible, like the aural creations of Moser’s fine feathered friends. This new album is likely to vault the multi-talented pianist from her longtime local-favorite status into the top tier of national voices to be reckoned with in jazz. On Birdsongs , Anton Denner on flute and piccolo, and Ken Filiano on bass join the pianist in a trio setting to present nine songbird-inspired tunes, including seven originals. Over the past decade, Moser has performed Birdsongs at venues across the country with different instrumentation from solo piano to big band, acoustic to electronic, and everything in between. “The reason I decided on this group with Anton and Ken, to record all of my birdsongs, was to give the music a little more space and lightness,” Moser explains. “I also knew that both Anton and Ken would play sonically in those in-between places that is so much like the songs and calls that birds make, not always an exact pitch, but somewhere in between.

 

Available at CD Baby, Amazon, iTunes and Downtown Music Gallery

A FEW REVIEWS OF DENNY ZEITLIN’S SOLO PIANO PERFORMANCES “…he is an improvisational artist whose skills are so expansive that he can integrate everything he hears into the fabric of his soloing. In the best sense, in the manner that has always been true of jazz’s finest improvisers, Zeitlin constantly stretches the creative envelope, measuring himself only against the infinite demands of his music.”
Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times
“…Zeitlin delivered a riveting solo performance.”
George Goodman, New York Times
“In supreme command of the keyboard…he employs striking dissonances, he constructs extraordinary edifices of harmonics, he can be marvelously pianistic, with a velvet subtlety of touch. He is an original…Denny Zeitlin stretches jazz piano beyond any hitherto defined limits.”
Don Freeman, San Diego Union
“…He didn’t show his brilliance through his technique (which he has), but through subtle improvisation, advanced and finely-tuned harmonic development, and a stupendous internal sense of meter…Denny Zeitlin’s solo piano was the unpretentious highpoint of the festival.”
Munchner Merkur (Munich)

In September 2017 the State Music Council of North Rhine-Westphalia awarded its SilverTuning Fork to MARKUS STOCKHAUSEN (its golden counterpart went to a completely different genre). The award provided an occasion for a concert with Stockhausen’s reconstituted band ETERNAL VOYAGE, which was kindly recorded by West German Radio 3 Jazzredaktion in Düsseldorf.

Though MARKUS STOCKHAUSEN has been known as a crossover artist for years, this band reaches an entirely new level of ensemble playing, a musical amalgam that packs a punch. Besides Stockhausen himself, the septet’s sound is essentially defined by the Persian musician ALIREZA MORTAZAVI, who plays a zither-like instrument known as a santur, and the Indian sitar virtuoso HINDOL DEB. But no less important are the contributions from Stockhausen’s wife, the Dutch clarinettist TARA BOUMAN, and the Lebanese singer RABIH LAHOUD, his longstanding confrère, who sings with sometimes spontaneously invented words in Arabic. Like Hindol Deb, two new musicians are working with Stockhausen for the first time: the German-Indian keyboard player JARRY SINGLA and the German-Polish percussionist BODEK JANKE, a virtuoso on the tabla. What we hear is, to a large extent, improvisations, with melodic themes from Stockhausen’s own pen. One example is the first piece, SEPTEMBER SONG, an elegiac essay that never once courts longueurs despite its 12 minutes’ duration. The other numbers likewise radiate a meditative serenity that is invariably tightly focused and inviting rather than soporific.

In AVANTI Stockhausen, Deb, Bouman and Lahoud bring off impressive unisono passages; ALAMEYN has almost hymnic qualities; and ALIREZA is, as might be expected, a showcase for Mortazavi. The entire concert abounds in riveting beauty and rare urgency. ETERNAL VOYAGE originated some ten years ago as a sextet and released its exciting first album in 2010. Of its original members, only Stockhausen, Bouman and Lahoud remain. But the band not only bears witness to the long-term planning that Stockhausen devotes to his various projects, it also serves as proof of the special affinity with which this flugelhorn player chooses musicians who fit himself and his band while having something of their own to say. Janke plays savagely and expressively, but also very precisely, and santur and sitar form an exquisite combination with their oriental flair. Singla is responsible for the harmonious cohesion of ETERNAL VOYAGE, functioning somewhat as the band’s rock-solid foundation. Lahoud and Bouman add special touches, spreading their wings and taking their listeners to unimagined heights. Enough ink has already been spilt on the unique tone and moving solos of bandleader Stockhausen. Suffice it to say that he never feels the need to place himself in the foreground; instead, he exudes a natural and warm-hearted authority – one quality among many that turns the album ETERNAL VOYAGE / L IVE into a genuine listening experience.

NEW RELEASE FROMThe Jack Mouse Group”Intimate Adversary”FeaturingJack Mouse drums

Bob Bowman bass
shem.gif
The Jack Mouse Group
“Intimate Adversary”
(Tall Grass TG 8284)
Street Date: November 2, 2018
For the extraordinary drummer/composer Jack Mouse’s latest album Intimate Adversary, he departs from his two previous collaborative and more freely improvised Tall Grass releases – Snakeheads & Ladybugs and Three-Story Sandbox – to focus on his outstanding compositional talents and mastery of classic jazz leadership. Accompanied by his brilliant longtime cohorts – tenor saxophonist Scott Robinson, Art Davis on trumpet and flugelhorn, guitarist John McLean and Bob Bowman on bass – his quintet takes on nine pieces that display their command of all forms of post bop era jazz, along with a delightful taste of 50s-style swing and a compelling gospel blues.

The musicianship is exceptional, not only in terms of the consummate artistry, but also in that most precious element of jazz expressiveness that can only exist in the essence of musicians who know, respect and love each other’s creativity, producing that perfect synergy of unified intent.  Even a seemingly simple blues is transformed into a multi-faceted gem. Further unifying the ensemble is Jack’s marvelous drumming – always viscerally creative, stimulating the soloists and providing the bonding substance that fortifies the structure. Mouse also composed eight of the nine pieces, the ninth co-copmposed with Robinson and Bowman – a work that embraces the more collective style of Jack’s other recent albums…. and provides tangible evidence that “free” jazz is of the identical substance in rich musicality  to the more traditionally recognized forms.

The title cut is part of a 2-part suite and is named for the legendary Pablo Casals’ description of his cello as his “most Intimate Adversary” and is firmly rooted in the Spanish flamenco ballad style and Spanish Gypsy fusion music. Launched with rubato arco bass morphing into a deliciously relaxed ostinato, the sinuous theme ushers in a most enjoyable expedition that evokes Grant Green’s wonderful Idle Moments in its sensuous exposition of great musicians playing in late night mode purely for their own joy…. and that of anyone else who may be fortunate to be in the room with them. The tail end of the suite is a gently up-tempo romp titled Adamant Inversary, an ideally confluent piece, and about which Jack aptly says “I know there is no such word as Inversary … but there ought to be.”

An infectiously atmospheric mood is also prominent on two other items. Inspired by Roy Hawkins’ The Thrill is Gone (immortalized by B.B. King), Twas Never Thus is a beautiful and appropriately blue-tinged ballad expressed in consecutive sections by tenor, trumpet and guitar, eliciting deeply emotive solos by each. Rooted in Jack’s boyhood experience of sitting outside the African American churches of his hometown and listening to choir practice Old, New and Used Testaments is a down home Gospel blues that features deeply soulful solos by McLean and Davis, buoyed by Jack’s ingenious punctuation, far more than the customary shuffle that is so often utilized in this style of music.

Jack looks back on his past as well with Nineteen Sixty-Five (“the year I wrote this, my first tune”). Inspired by his listening to the West Coast/cool school recordings of artists like Gerry Mulligan/Art Farmer, Chet Baker and Shorty Rogers, it testifies to the joyous simplicity of straightforward swing and its timeless appeal and essence without even a hint of parody or the excuse of tribute. But a touch of another kind of tribute is found inBarney’s Fife, a whimsical play on the popular Don Knotts TV character (“Yep, I’m a huge fan of the Andy Griffith Show.”). With a playfully jaunty theme in call-and-response between horns and drums, the excellent horn solos fluctuate between duet with drums and cadenza and are further stoked by Mouse’s highly melodic drumming. One more personal note is Jacomo (“an old high-school nickname bestowed on me by my old high school band director, the great Ormond Parker). At nearly nine minutes, both horns are given plenty of time to stretch, and they do quite vividly on this Hank Mobley-ish blues that concludes with a spirited trading of eights and twelves between drums and bass.

Three Heads Are Better than One is a highly textured driver shifting between straight and implied time, calling to mind some of the experimental explorations of adventurers like Jimmy Giuffre and Bob Brookmeyer in the early days of post-bop free jazz. “The title is really a description of a compositional technique with which I’ve been experimenting.  The players were given a written rhythmic line and asked to find notes on their own to fit over the harmonic changes of a 12 bar blues form. Essentially, each player is coming up with his own head, so every time we play it is completely different.”
Concluding this terrific album with the aforementioned “co-composition” – more precisely, a collective trio improvisation by Mouse, Bowman and Robinson – Three Free is also a powerful lesson.  Structured upon the freedom of improvisation and abstract expressionism that has been a part of the profound jazz legacy since its inception, and then brought into a new incarnation by the masters of the second half of the 20th century, this stunning piece is fully confluent with all of the music that precedes it in its sheer musicality, radiant swing and utterly compelling creativity.

Intimate Adversary is a wonderful excursion into jazz expression at the crossroads of tradition, adventure, virtuosity and joyful exuberance.

New Book Out Now:
Warren Benbow’s “A Drummers Story”!
shem.gif

Jazz is one of the major forms of musical expression. In the 1970s, jazz was moving away from strict acoustic instruments and was adding electric instruments— turning its style toward rock music. Warren Benbow, who has been playing drums since he was young, details the changes jazz music underwent in his artistic memoir, “A Drummers Story” @ https://store.bookbaby.com/book/A-Drummers-Story1
After attending the High School of Performing Arts in New York City, Warren Benbow started exploring the world of jazz. In his book, he looks back on the influences that emerged since the ’70s. He also recalls his performances and encounters with noteworthy musicians like Whitney Houston, Nina Simone, Betty Carter, Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, Ornette Coleman, and James “Blood” Ulmer. Aside from music, his memoir also mentions the shifts in racial integration and political dynamics in 1960s and 1970s America.

I’ve been fortunate to have performed or recorded with artists such as Whitney Houston, Nina Simone, LL Cool J, Betty Carter, Michael Urbaniak with Ursula Dudziak, Nancy Wilson, Mavis Staples, Teruo Nakamura and Super Friends, Mary J. Blige, Brian McKnight, James “Blood” Ulmer’s Odyssey Band and many others.

 

I went to the High School of Performing Arts (FAME) and the Mannes College of Music here in NYC. At the same time I also attended the Jazzmobile, here in NY as well, where many of the music instructors were members of Dizzy Gillespie’s big band. Meeting these people is how I began to get jazz gigs and work in New York.

While in high school I had a band with my classmates and we were playing the music of the Rascals and Vanilla Fudge. We were loud. At the same time I was playing jazz with singer Betty Carter that was much softer music, with light sticks and brushes. At first it was not easy to make the transition between playing loud with my band or soft with the jazz vocalist, but eventually I found a way.
I started out as a kid drummer, and although I’m not that kid drummer anymore, every time I get behind the kit I still feel like I am. I enjoy performing and I plan to keep on performing. Once a drummer, always a drummer!
I work in recording studios here in town, but I enjoy performing live around the world even more, though at times it can be quite hectic. In fact, I just got back from doing a couple of club dates in Europe with James “Blood” Ulmer. One show was in Vienna, and one in Munich. I flew to Vienna, arrived at the hotel in the morning, had an evening sound check and performance, and then did the same deal the day after in Munich. Performances were great, but not much time to sleep. The life of a musician…Ha!

I recently wrote a book about my drumming life in the
changing music scene in the ’70s and ’80s. It’s called,”A Drummers Story”.

“A Drummer’s Story is a walk through Bed Stuy., and Brooklyn in the 60’s and 70’s, and on to the High School of Performing Arts in NYC. Through his gigs with Whitney HoustonNina Simone, Betty Carter, James ‘Blood’ Ulmer and many more, Warren covers the NYC music scene from The Apollo, The Fillmore East and Hendrix’s Electric Ladyland Studios with Stevie Wonderand everything in between.

Warren has touched on a huge variety of the music from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s – from the civil rights movement, the assassinations of JFK, Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King into John Lennon, the summer of love and Jimi Hendrixplaying the Star Spangled banner at Woodstock. A lover of music from James Brownand Aretha to Sly Stoneand Miles DavisThe Beatlesand Ringo to drummers Tony Williams and John Bonham. Warren covers his life thru the streets and thru the music….”

Lenny White
An American jazz fusion drummer icon, best known for being the drummer of Chick Corea and Return Forever. ‪ White has been described as “one of the founding fathers of jazz fusion”…

” Warren Benbow’s words give you a literary landscape of the most influential musical periods of the style of Jazz in the last century. He’s lived in it and continues to live an eventful life”.

Warren Smith-
Jazz, and classical percussionist, and educator.
“I was privileged to read Warren Benbow’s book. I have known Warren, it seems, for most of his professional career. His narrative is quite interesting, especially to another musician, as well as a fellow percussionist. Seeing similar or shared experiences thru the eyes of another musician is always an interesting adventure. Warren’s story is reminiscent of my own early years in New York City.

This book chronicles the constant evolution of the music world thru the last few decades. Warren tells of the influence of technology upon the music, as well as the ever-changing styles and developments of the innovators, musicians and composers who most influenced the direction of African-American Music during the 20th and early 21st centuries. His breadth of experiences, and the way he uses them to navigate a successful career, is a must read for young musicians.

I am sure that anyone who starts this book will find it hard to put down, from cover to cover. Great job Warren. We need more active musicians to tell this story from the inside…”

Grammy Award Winning

Pablo Ziegler Jazz Tango Trio

Last performances of 2018

“The music… is arresting. It is ferociously beautiful and centered around the mathematical precision of the tango… Horizons blur in mighty syncopations and juicy jazz sojourns and a new hybrid drenched in the blues and jazz emerges.” 
Hot House Jazz Magazine

shem.gif
“astringent to sultry, gruff to tender, agitated to buoyant… balancing suave melodies with tense undercurrents”

The New York Times

 

“sophistication and refinement probably undreamed of by Piazzolla”

The Chicago Tribune

Pablo Ziegler’s playing style is often compared with Vladimir Horowitz and Bill Evans. Tango maestro Pablo Ziegler — the world­ renowned pianist and composer who helped shape the modern tango — will bring his Grammy­ winning-trio to California! Jazz Tango delivers stripped­down, jazz­tinged arrangements of Ziegler’s essential repertoire, offering a raw, elemental concert program.

From fiery, improvised solos to delicately woven ensemble playing, the trio (Ziegler on piano, Hector Del Curto on bandoneon, and Claudio Ragazzi on guitar) delivers unmatched readings of beloved works by Ziegler, as well as modern classics by his late, longtime collaborator Astor Piazzolla. As one the most important living interpreters of nuevo tango, a concert by Pablo Ziegler offers a chance to witness part the living history of this vital musical tradition with his futuristic vision that keeps pushing the boundaries of the genre.

Marco Pignataro’s “Almas Antiguas” 
on the Grammy Ballot for
Best Instrumental Jazz Album
shem.gif

International saxophonist Marco Pignataro’s new cd “Almas Antiguas” (Zoho Music) is on the 61th Grammy Ballot for Best Instrumental Jazz Album. The cd features Eddie Gomez, Alan Pasqua, Adam Cruz and George Garzone and has received enthusiastic praises, reviews and attention, including from Jazz@Lincoln Center, CNN en Español and Downbeat Magazine.

For the consideration of the voting members, the cd can be enjoyed on:

And on all the major online music platforms.

“On his ZOHO debut “Almas Antiguas” (“Old Souls”), Boston based saxophonist Marco Pignataro presents his all-star quintet. Six original compositions and five arrangements tell a “story of love”, signifying on elements of his Italian and Puerto Rican bloodlines. The music is evocative and powerful, blending modern jazz with shades of Mediterranean, folk & Latin influences. A remarkably cohesive, artistic recital, devoted to vivid melodies and lyrical beauty, in which all members illuminate the roiling emotions and romantic sensibility that underpin the songs.”
– Ted Panken

“The songs that Pignataro presents on “Almas Antiguas” are full of emotion and art. It is one of the most interesting albums of fall 2018.” “Dodie Miller-Gould” (LemonWire)

  “Bologna born, Boston based saxophonist Marco Pignataro’s ZOHO debut Almas Antiguas (“Old Souls”) is more than simply an wide ranging, eclectic stroll through a multitude of exotic, percussive global landscapes with greats Alan Pasqua (piano), Adam Cruz (drums) and Eddie Gomez (bass). It’s a heartfelt, alternately reflective and exuberant, multi-generational celebration of the love that flows through his culturally rich Italian and Puerto Rican bloodlines.” Jonathan Widran” (the JW Wibe)
 “Mr. Pignataro is one of the most dedicated, passionate and well respected  internationally known saxophonist, composer and educator today”  – Joe Lovano

The extraordinary vocal/guitar duo of Benji Kaplan and Rita Figueiredo
are making their debut European tour in he Fall of 2018.

Partners in life and in music, they are also partners in songwriting, with Benji’s outstanding compositions blending perfectly with Rita’s compelling and visually expressive lyrics. Likewise, Benji’s virtuosic guitar fuses seamlessly with Rita’s lovely and beguiling voice with an intimacy and unity of essence that is simply mesmerizing.

This tour follows upon the release of their first album together, Benji & Rita on the U.S. label Big Apple Batucada – a stunning achievement with Benji’s sumptuous chamber ensemble-supported arrangements of ten of his and Rita’s songs, plus three more in the stripped-down emotionally charged duo setting that will be the style of their upcoming tour.
While the duo format is far less complex than the righly textured dynamics of the album, the core elements of both of these exceptional artists are fully in play in this intimate, highly personal structure.

Benji’s unique compositions – fully-informed by jazz, chamber, Brazilian and Middle Eastern sonorities and rhythms – are met at a cinematic crossroads by Rita’s visual narratives that deeply reflect her artistry as a filmmaker. Bringing all of these elements together into a context of superb artfulness, the duo performance of Benji and Rita is an alluring and deeply rewarding experience for audiences of all ages and tastes.
The tour is scheduled to begin in November and will bring them to Portugal, Spain, England and Germany. The tour has been partially arranged by top Brazilian agent Renata Franchini, and also represented by Canadian agent Jean-Pierre Leduc’s Lunched Management.

MARIA MULDAUR’S

“DON’T YOU FEEL MY LEG:
THE NAUGHTY BAWDY BLUES OF BLUE LU BARKER” ON THE GRAMMY BALLOT FOR BEST TRADITIONAL BLUES ALBUM

shem.gif
Don’t You Feel My Leg: The Naughty Bawdy Blues of  Blue Lu Barker is on the 61st Grammy Ballot for Best Traditional Blues Album, Best American Roots Performance (Don’t You Feel My Leg), and Best Engineered Album – Non-Classical. The album is a tribute to popular vocalist and songwriter Blue Lu Barker, who made her mark in the late 30s and early 40s, and whom Billie Holiday once cited as her biggest influence. Featuring a stellar band of NOLA musicians including New Orleans A-listers David Torkanowsky on piano (Neville Brothers, Irma Thomas, Solomon Burke), Roland Guerin on bass (Allen Toussaint, Steve Earle, Chris Thomas King), and Herlin Riley on drums (Dr. John, Wynton Marsalis, Cassandra Wilson), among others.

 

 

“…Here she lightens her timbre in tribute to her friend Lu on top of a hyperactive New Orleans band, and she’s never sounded sexier or more committed….
Grade: A
” ~ Robert Christgau

 

Don’t You Feel My Leg: The Naughty Bawdy Blues of Blue Lu Barker pays tribute to a great New Orleans blues singer and testifies to the vitality and mastery of Maria Muldaur as she continues to mine rich veins of American Roots music.
Robert H. Cataliotti, Living Blues Magazine

“…Muldaur has done it again.” ~ Richard Ludmerer, MakingAScene.org

“[Muldaur] shares an intrinsic understanding of the music with the band members, so that their collective efforts revive these classics in all of their bawdy glory while adding exciting musical statements firmly rooted in the traditions.
Mark Thompson, Blues Blast Magazine

Puerto de Buenos Aires 1933

EL ECO with Guillermo Nojechowicz
Featuring Helio Alves, Fernando Huergo, Kim Nazarian,
Marco Pignataro Brian Lynch

Puerto de Buenos Aires 1933 was inspired by a remnant of Guillermo Nojechowicz’s family history, the passport that his grandmother carried when she fled Warsaw for Argentina in 1933 along with Nojechowicz’s father, who was then a small boy. Crossing Europe by train, they left behind everything familiar to face the unknown in Buenos Aires – a trip that spared them from the Holocaust, where so many others in their community later perished. The Latin Jazz Suite that chronicles their long, uncertain journey is the centerpiece of
EL ECO‘s new recording: Puerto de Buenos Aires 1933.

B E S T   L A T I N   J A Z Z   A L B U M
This is a beautiful and important record. 
— Brazilian Jazz Vocalist Luciana Souza
One of the year’s most spellbinding releases.    
— Mark Holston, JAZZIZ

“Album of the Year” for the annual critics’ choices, to be published in the Winter 2019 issue of JAZZIZWith plenty of full-throated jazz soloing, the album has one foot in the southern hemisphere and one in the north, and the personnel also straddles the equator: Guillermo Nojechowicz’s sextet El Eco is rounded out by American trumpet ace Brian Lynch, Argentinian bassist Fernando Huergo, Brazilian pianist Helio Alves, and Italian saxophonist Marco Pignataro, with a string quartet added for additional grandeur. Conceived in solemnity and impressively executed with passion and precision, it succeeds entirely.
— Neil Tesser, JAZZIZ

SOLO
PABLO ZIEGLERPablo Ziegler releases an album of brand new arrangements of his nuevo tango pieces, as well as some new compositions and works by Astor Piazzolla, Alejandro Dolina, and Juan Carlos CobiánFRESH OFF 2018 GRAMMY WIN, PABLO ZIEGLER RELEASES HIS FIRST SOLO PIANO ALBUM FOR STEINWAY & SONS“He is cool, understated and makes everything look easy and natural…Just as a really suave tango dancer seems not to move with feet but on wheels, Ziegler skates the keyboard.”
 The Los Angeles Times“A stellar, sitting down piano recital in which he recrafts a bunch of his own classics, and of course Piazzolla’s, this is as good as it gets and should be heard by all no matter how they feel about tango, instrumental and other musical types that might not be on their normal radar.”
MidWest RecordPablo Ziegler, 2018 Grammy Award winner for Best Latin Jazz Album, writes music imbued with Buenos Aires soul. Following up on 2016’s Tango Nuevo with Christopher O’Riley, Pablo Ziegler Solo presents the composer and pianist on his own terms with new arrangements of his nuevo tango works, along with pieces by Juan Carlos Cobián, Alejandro Dolina, and Ziegler’s mentor, Astor Piazzolla.While Ziegler is accustomed to playing his music with orchestra or small ensemble, this new solo program is a natural extension of his love and affinity for his instrument. He remarks, “The piano is a way to have a conversation for me; I express my feelings through piano rather than words. I always hear music in my mind, and the piano has been always accompanied my journey.” Compositions recorded for the first time on Pablo Ziegler Solo include “Alguien sin Nombre,” a dream of an encounter with an unknown true love; and “Nana para un Niño Dormido,” inspired by Georg Büchner’s play Woyzeck.In choosing works by other composers for the project, Ziegler hoped to emphasize the varying sides of his identity, from classical to jazz to nuevo tango. Two works by Piazzolla – “Oblivion” and “Milonga del Ángel” – represent the time in Ziegler’s life when he and Piazzolla were performing together. Ziegler met Alejandro Dolina in the 1980s, and arranged and re-harmonized his piece “El Vals del Duende,” the album’s penultimate track. Juan Carlos Cobián graduated from the same conservatory as Ziegler and is considered the Chopin of Tango music; his “Nostalgias” closes the album.“Releasing this solo piano album is a new chapter of my life as a musician,” says Ziegler. “There is always a first time for everything. This album happened to be one of them.”VIDEO
https://youtu.be/a-mrO4I2eJgABOUT THE ARTISTFor decades, Buenos Aires-born, Grammy-winning pianist, composer and arranger Pablo Ziegler has been one of the most important figures in Argentine New Tango, the vibrant musical hybrid of classic tango, American jazz, and European art music. After performing in tango grand-maestro Astor Piazzolla’s legendary quintet for over a decade, and appearing on iconic Piazzolla recordings including Tango: Zero Hour, La Camorra and Central Park Concert, Ziegler has led his own groups for over 20 years, refining and reimagining the bounds of the modern tango tradition.Ziegler has performed at major venues and festivals including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center Out of Doors, Muziekgebouw, Verbier Festival, Ravinia Festival, SFJAZZ, Montreal Jazz Festival, the Ottawa International Jazz Fest, Tokyo Jazz Festival, Birdland, Blue Note and many others.
In 2016, for the Steinway & Sons label, Ziegler teamed up with pianist Christopher O’Riley for Tango Nuevo, a love letter to the traditions and culture of Argentina, particularly to the city of Buenos Aires.ABOUT THE LABELhttps://www.steinway.com/music-and-artists/label/solo-pablo-ziegler

Mike Freeman has been hailed as “masterful,”a “superb” vibes player, and “wildly talented.” Following Blue Tjade, his tribute to Cal Tjader, Venetian Blinds is a tip of the hat to Tito Puente and Bobby Hutcherson.When Tito Puente rolled in his vibes during the early days of the Palladium, people would say, “Here comes Tito with those venetian blinds!”— referring to the strung-together bars of the instrument. Four of the tracks on this recording were written for Tito Puente: “Those Venetian Blinds,” “Mambo Kings,” “Night Crawlers,” and “Qué Tal Tío” (What’s Up Uncle). Another three go out to the late vibraphonist and Jazz Master Bobby Hutcherson: “Clutch the Hutch,” “Bobby Land,” and “House of Vibes.”Mike Freeman ZonaVibe brings together a mix of original Latinjazz characterized by spirited soulful swing. Venetian Blinds is the latest in a line of clave-infused recordings Mike has produced over the past 18 years.The all-new lineup for this outing features stalwarts of the New York Latin music scene: trumpeter Guido Gonzalez and conga master Roberto Quintero, along with up-and-coming players Ian Stewart on bass and Joel Mateo on drums.
Mike Freeman’s recordings have appeared on numerous radio charts (jazz, contemporary, World) and syndicated radio programs (WOR radio network, Jazz After Hours, David Sanborn, Music Choice, United Airlines), with international airplay throughout Canada, Europe, the Caribbean, South America, and Australia. His recordings have been both Grammy and Latin Grammy entries and have received outstanding reviews. Mike is also known by fans and audiences for his work and recordings with several acclaimed Latin groups including Ray Mantilla; Lucho Cueto’s all-star salsa group Black Sugar; and Son Boricua with Jose Mangual Jr. and the late Jimmy Sabater (one of the architects of Boogaloo).

High-talent masterful vibraphone jazz Mike Freeman ZonaVibe – Venetian Blinds

Dick Metcalf, editor, Contemporary Fusion Reviews August 10, 2018

High-talent masterful vibraphone jazz Mike Freeman ZonaVibe – VENETIAN BLINDS:  “Old soul” Latin jazz fans (like me) can’t help but remember the hip sounds of players like Tito Puente and Bobby Hutcherson… this is vibraphonist Mike’s high-talent tribute to those stalwarts… as you listen to them on his August, 2018 release, you’ll realize why I found his playing so attractive… the 4:47 “Bobby Land” has a lilting groove that will transport any “true” jazz lover straight to Nirvana… just LOVE Mike’s vibe on this tune.

Mike’s work is highly complimented by trumpeter Guido Gonzalez; conga master Roberto Quintero, along with up-and-coming players Ian Stewart on bass and Joel Mateo on drums… all you need to do is scope out the 5:15 opener, “House Of Vibes“, to become a dedicated fan of this great group of players… one thing you’ll notice right away is how “together” they are… no players “stepping” on each other & every note is full of the kind of jazz energy most groups can only aspire towards; this is one of my favorite vibe-based tunes (yet) in 2018!

If you’re looking for music you can dance to, you’re gonna’ fall in love with “Fancy Free” right away… this song definitely has the soul you’ve been seeking… it gets a slot on my iPhone player, too… perfect cruising music… Ian’s bass solo lines on this one are just stellar!

It is the longest cut on the album that won my vote for personal favorite… “What’s Up With This Moon” clocks in at 6:11, and has some wonderful trumpet from Guido, along with all the other jazz masters.

I give Mike and his fellow players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.98 for this mighty mellow jazz excursion.

“Marty Elkins is the most effective purveyor of 1920s and ’30s swing vocals recording today.” C. Michael Bailey, All About Jazz, July 9th, 2018

MARTY ELKINS  FAT DADDY was selected TOP TEN CDs of 2018 inCadence Magazine

“While her previous CDs are excellent, Fat Daddy is Marty Elkins’ definitive recording so far and is highly recommended to fans of first-class swing singers.”
Scott Yanow, The Syncopated Times – August 1, 2018

“Surely the acid test for any record is whether you play it just once, just twice, or have to hear it again and again: it’s in your head always. Fat Daddy is an always record, and Marty Elkins is an always singer….Her lush voice caresses the lyrics of this imaginative and compelling collection of standards and discoveries…. Elkins can do anything.”

Soul Serenade – The Gloria Lynne Project

DIANE MARINO

shem.gif
Jazz vocalist Diane Marino “Soul Serenade – The Gloria Lynne Project” 
invites you to enjoy this album and please keep it in mind FYC… (Jazz Vocal Album)
LISTEN HERE
“Soul Serenade- The Gloria Lynne Project” is the title of my newest CD project. Although not exactly a “tribute” album, it is more of a celebration of the music made popular by the great vocalist, Gloria Lynne. As it turns out, I have been singing some of the material

she has been known for ever since I first began to sing professionally- so many years ago! “I Wish You Love” is one of the first ballads I ever sang on a gig. “I’m Glad There Is You” is a track I recorded for my CD “On The Street Where You Live”.
While performing on a recent gig with drummer Vince Ector, I sang “I’m Glad There Is You”, and he reminded me it was one of Gloria’s signature songs.
So, I began to research more of Gloria’s work and was instantly mesmerized by her voice, style and emotion. Additionally, her choice of material was instantly appealing to me. I tendto look for songs that are “beyond the norm” of the Great American Songbook repertoire. The songs Gloria Lynne recorded during her career stand alone in their originality and uniqueness. Her performances of these particular tunes move me every time I hear them.
I wanted to step away from the piano for this project in order to collaborate with someone else’s ideas that could influence the way I might want to sing a particular song. I feel that when you accompany yourself on piano the two elements are inseparable and it was time to do a project in a different way.I asked my dear friend Brad Cole (Music Director for Phil Collins, etc.) to take my concepts and write the arrangements and orchestrations as well as to play piano/keyboards on this project. He seemed to know exactly what I wanted to do with each of these songs. I think we’ve come up with a fresh approach to this material that Gloria Lynne’s recordings influenced me to explore and ultimately record!
Diane Marino – “Soul Serenade-The Gloria Lynne Project”
Reviews
Marino is sassy, upbeat on “Nothing Ever Changes My Love For You” and is soulful as she bops along Chris Brown’s brushes on “For You.” Stately and uptown.”
– jazzweekly.com – George Harris  ” A jazzy vocal album that works throughout, Marino is fully ready to take flight on her own, especially if she plans on keeping it classy. Well done.”
-Midwest Record – Chris Spector”Diane Marino brings the vocal magic on ballads like “Blue Gardenia” and “Out of This World.” “The Jazz in You” is produced as a sultry blues number and Marino steps up to the plate and hits a home run with this tune.”
-Musical Memoirs.com  – Dee Dee McNeil/Jazz Journalist “A thoroughly enjoyable contemporary pop/jazz album from vocalist Diane Marino from “Soul Serenade: The Gloria Lynne Project” w/ some fine orchestrations and arrangements by Brad Cole.”
– notesonjazz.blogspot.com – Ralph A. Miriello“A striking vocalist, Diane Marino chose songs that brought out the emotional depth of her register. Her inflections make lyrics stand out in the listener’s mind. She expresses human emotion through the range of her timbres and the elasticity in her vocal nuances. Revisiting songs from Gloria Lynne’s recordings prove to be a fine fit for Diane Marino.”
– Susan Franceson – Blog Critics: Marino emblazons each track with her personal touch ***** 5 StarsMarino wisely retains her own identity whilst conveying the feel of a Gloria Lynne performance. Which, in many ways, is the best of two worlds. Sultry, with just an edge of soul and blues and a lot of jazz. A great album that’s made me aware of TWO great jazz vocalists.”
– Bebop Spoken Here – Lance Liddle“Reverie and remembrance for the art of Gloria Lynne sing through this collection – due to the inordinately beautiful performances by Diane Marino and ensemble. ”
– 5 out of 5 stars A celebration of the spirit of Gloria Lynne – Grady Harp (Amazon)

Judi Silvano “Lessons Learned”

Best Jazz Vocal Album


Listen On Amazon

First Round Voting Closes October 31, 2018

shem.gif
Judi’s compositions are like her paintings… Magical!
Sheila Jordan, 2012 NEA Jazz MasterThe album “Lessons Learned”, recently released on Unit Records, consists entirely of Silvano’s compositions, some of them sharp and spiky (“Dark Things”) and others full of wonder (“Round and Round”). One subtle high point is a ballad titled “Hand and Heart.”

Nate Chinen, WBGO.org/post

Once again, the jazz vocalist finds that sweet spot between art chic and hard core pro as she delivers a real personal album.  Lyrically loaded with lessons all of us should really be thinking about, this is a Zen jazz set that’s sure to resonate.

Chris Spector, MidWest Record Review

Judi Silvano’s “Lessons Learned” has moved my thoughts and memories in countless directions, her words awakening so much of a life lived.  After careful listening to her thought-provoking lyrics, all I can say is the album has now become a permanent fixture on my iPhone playlist.
Eric Alan, alljazzradio/co.za/blogs-and-reviews, So.Africa

There comes a point in anyone’s life that is a place of reflection; a review of a lifetime’s worth of choices and decisions. At that point, songs emerge, and Judi Silvano’s “Lessons Learned” (Unit Records UTR4868) is a mature musical compilation of personal observations on life and love.

“Lessons Learned” was produced by Grammy winning saxophonist and composer Joe Lovano, who says “This is one of the most inspired and fun recording sessions I’ve ever been a part of; it’s full of beautiful, joyous music!”  His feelings are well reflected in his adventurous arrangements of these songs, from tender and spiritual to raucous and whimsical. That gamut is also a function of Judi’s songwriting. She’s not afraid to bare her heart and sing of intimacy, and she tackles the realities of aging with hilarious candor.

The musicians on the recording are members of Silvano’s Zephyr Band, an ensemble with an unusual lineup for a jazz singer: two electric guitars.  These are wielded by Kenny Wessel and Bruce Arnold, providing orchestral settings for the songs. The band is rounded out with Ratzo B. Harris on bass, Adam Kolker on bass clarinet, soprano and tenor sax, Bob Meyer on drums and Todd Isler on percussion. Joe Lovano lends his signature sound on tenor sax to two tracks.

They continue to find new directions for Silvano’s compositions and stories.

Mike Freeman has been hailed as “masterful,”a “superb” vibes player, and “wildly talented.” Following Blue Tjade, his tribute to Cal Tjader, Venetian Blinds is a tip of the hat to Tito Puente and Bobby Hutcherson.When Tito Puente rolled in his vibes during the early days of the Palladium, people would say, “Here comes Tito with those venetian blinds!”— referring to the strung-together bars of the instrument. Four of the tracks on this recording were written for Tito Puente: “Those Venetian Blinds,” “Mambo Kings,” “Night Crawlers,” and “Qué Tal Tío” (What’s Up Uncle). Another three go out to the late vibraphonist and Jazz Master Bobby Hutcherson: “Clutch the Hutch,” “Bobby Land,” and “House of Vibes.”Mike Freeman ZonaVibe brings together a mix of original Latinjazz characterized by spirited soulful swing. Venetian Blinds is the latest in a line of clave-infused recordings Mike has produced over the past 18 years.The all-new lineup for this outing features stalwarts of the New York Latin music scene: trumpeter Guido Gonzalez and conga master Roberto Quintero, along with up-and-coming players Ian Stewart on bass and Joel Mateo on drums.
Mike Freeman’s recordings have appeared on numerous radio charts (jazz, contemporary, World) and syndicated radio programs (WOR radio network, Jazz After Hours, David Sanborn, Music Choice, United Airlines), with international airplay throughout Canada, Europe, the Caribbean, South America, and Australia. His recordings have been both Grammy and Latin Grammy entries and have received outstanding reviews. Mike is also known by fans and audiences for his work and recordings with several acclaimed Latin groups including Ray Mantilla; Lucho Cueto’s all-star salsa group Black Sugar; and Son Boricua with Jose Mangual Jr. and the late Jimmy Sabater (one of the architects of Boogaloo).

High-talent masterful vibraphone jazz Mike Freeman ZonaVibe – Venetian Blinds

Dick Metcalf, editor, Contemporary Fusion Reviews August 10, 2018

High-talent masterful vibraphone jazz Mike Freeman ZonaVibe – VENETIAN BLINDS:  “Old soul” Latin jazz fans (like me) can’t help but remember the hip sounds of players like Tito Puente and Bobby Hutcherson… this is vibraphonist Mike’s high-talent tribute to those stalwarts… as you listen to them on his August, 2018 release, you’ll realize why I found his playing so attractive… the 4:47 “Bobby Land” has a lilting groove that will transport any “true” jazz lover straight to Nirvana… just LOVE Mike’s vibe on this tune.

Mike’s work is highly complimented by trumpeter Guido Gonzalez; conga master Roberto Quintero, along with up-and-coming players Ian Stewart on bass and Joel Mateo on drums… all you need to do is scope out the 5:15 opener, “House Of Vibes“, to become a dedicated fan of this great group of players… one thing you’ll notice right away is how “together” they are… no players “stepping” on each other & every note is full of the kind of jazz energy most groups can only aspire towards; this is one of my favorite vibe-based tunes (yet) in 2018!

If you’re looking for music you can dance to, you’re gonna’ fall in love with “Fancy Free” right away… this song definitely has the soul you’ve been seeking… it gets a slot on my iPhone player, too… perfect cruising music… Ian’s bass solo lines on this one are just stellar!

It is the longest cut on the album that won my vote for personal favorite… “What’s Up With This Moon” clocks in at 6:11, and has some wonderful trumpet from Guido, along with all the other jazz masters.

I give Mike and his fellow players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.98 for this mighty mellow jazz excursion.

 Review by Raul da Gama

At last the renowned Brasilian musician Antonio Adolfo, pianist and pedagogue has followed esteemed fellow-Brasilians Moacir Santos, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Hermeto Pascoal and Mario Adnet in creating music for a larger ensemble. While retaining all the foaming warmth and shuffling rhythms of (Carioca) Brasil Mr Adolfo’s music – much more fulsome with brass, winds and guitars here – cuts through the air with wonderfully sharp and silvery harmonics that weave sinuously through these ten melodies. Always, of course the music is guided onward by Mr Adolfo’s sometimes gliding, and often percussive, pianism and supported by the steady in-the-pocket drumming and percussion of Rafael Barata and Dadá Costa. And all of this is shaped by the sensuous bass lines of Jorge Helder who, together with Jessé Sadoc, a musician who Mr Adolfo has often called upon to anchor his groups – small and large.
Mr Adolfo’s music has always worked on two distinct planes. One has been the narrative – one on which he has built often fascinating stories and adventures. The other is the visual one and here Mr Adolfo has tinted the black dots with colours from a very large palette. The scope of these has been generously enlarged on Encontros. As a result this music now has the effect of a kind of epic depiction of Mr Adolfo’s beloved Brasilian landscape and taken together this music acts as a kind of soundtrack to a breathtaking adventure. And it is enormously beckoning from the agitated, jazzy shuffle of “Partido Samba-Funk” to another rippling jazzy rendition of Miles Davis’ “Milestones” where the musicians of Orquestra Atlântica mark a dramatic dynamic contrast between the spiky legato arpeggio accompaniment and the characteristically laconic melodic top line.

Mr Adolfo returns to the heart of Brasil with a deep-dive into the traditional “Capoeira Yá” and a dark, rumbling “Africa Bahia Brasil” which conjures the spirit not only of Moacir Santos, but also the great Dorival Caymmi. All the while Mr Adolfo employs tones and colours of the largest palette than one has ever been accustomed to hearing his music played. This also gives the arrangers the scope to introduce soloists who have been accorded time to improvise on themes and melodies. Each solo is a masterful essay and is played with intensity and a winning sweetness of tone and manner. The result is a programme that works exceedingly well for Mr Adolfo. Special mention need be mentioned of the arrangements and orchestrations by Marcelo Martins and Jessé Sadoc for without their extraordinary work this might have been a wholly different album of songs. As it is with this and the other musicians who play Mr Adolfo’s wonderful music this will be an album to remember for a long time to come.

“Rebecca Angel’s lyrical rearrangement of Brazilian Marcos Valle’s instrumental hit of 2005 is a wonderfully sensual interpretation. Sophisticated and charming in equal measure, Angel’s vocal and her band’s combined musicality masters the jazz, samba and pop fusions perfectly.” –Jason Balzarano 4-star review (Jazz Journal UK)
“Rebecca Angel’s voice makes the difference. With her refined charm, she gives the songs on What We Had the overwhelming splendor.” –Hans-Bernd Hulsmann
“WHAT WE HAD is a real treat, and Rebecca Angel’s voice and writing are superb evidence of an artist with a very bright future.”
Chris Gibson (Broadway World)
“Her voice often has a light, airy quality, which works to raise our spirits and make the world seems a bit better than it is.” –Michael Doherty
“Angel has a breathy, sweet voice that might be just as comfortable singing pop hits, but she’s able to bypass that observation through great taste in her material such as Hoagy Carmichael’s “Winter Moon” and a gorgeous and unique cover of “Stand By Me”… She’s done such a good job here, from the singing to the arranging to the composing and the choice of material.” –Marc Phillips (The Vinyl Anachronist)
“If you’re a true fan of youngbloods doing jazz vocal work, you’ll be just as excited as I am about Rebecca’s fresh and captivating new EP. […]Rebecca is definitely a star you’ll be hearing much more from over the coming months and years! […] The soulful performance Rebecca offers up on the classic “ Stand By Me” is (unquestionably) one of the most exciting covers of the tune I’ve ever heard.”

Powerhouse NYC recording artist Valerie Ghent salutes Dave Mason with the release of her new single, Feelin Alright – fifty years after the song’s initial release by English rock band, Traffic.

An electrifying remake of the soul-blues classic written by Dave Mason and made famous by Joe Cocker, Valerie delivers a strikingly powerful performance, heralding a band of world-class musicians recorded in New York City and France. In her full, live production complete with rock solid rhythm section, sizzling horns, a blazing piano solo and gospel-soul backing vocals, Ghent brings her multi-faceted talents (vocals, piano, organ, production, engineering & arranging) shaped by 20+ years working with music luminaries Ashford & Simpson, Nina Simone, Maya Angelou, Debbie Harry & Billy Preston to the forefront.

Feelin’ Alright features a new arrangement in the verses, plus stellar performances from Valerie on piano and vocals, and top musicians you have heard on countless R+B hits including Luther Vandross/Ashford & Simpson bassist Tinkr Barfield, Average White Band drummer Rocky Bryant, Blues Hall of Fame pianist Dave Keyes, world-renowned percussionist Bashiri Johnson, Roberta Flack backing vocalists Dennis Collins, Keith Fluitt and Toto’s John James. Add to the mix a blazing horn section from Paris featuring Nicolas Baudino and Marc Borlet-Hôte, Blues’Up organist Pierre Sibille, renowned French guitarist Jérôme Buigues, and Feelin’ Alright is ready to light up the world again in 2018!

“We’re thrilled to release our version of Feelin’ Alright in 2018,” Valerie says, “Feelin’ Alright is a timeless song, with a universal feeling everyone can relate to. Even though it was first released fifty years ago, to me the lyrics take on even more relevance today. Plus it’s such a fun song to play live! We had a blast putting our own NYC spin on it, while honoring the power of Joe Cocker’s version. We’ve been closing every show with Feelin’ Alright and audiences on both sides of the Atlantic love it. We salute you Dave Mason, and Joe Cocker, thank you both for bringing Feelin’ Alright into the world and giving us such a great song to sing.”

Valerie Ghent contributes her power packed vocals to a latest rendition of Mason’s classic. “Feelin’ Alright” is a fun and funky take on the decidedly downbeat topic of unrequited love. Her version features some of the classic soul/gospel elements (including those churchy backing vocals) heard in Cocker’s version. The horns on Ghent’s interpretation give the track a bit of a jazzy swing.

 “This is Milne at his most Ellingtonian, establishing moods and beginning various patterns that the band will soon take over. It is a mature, careful performance—one certainly easy to miss. Every time you pay attention to the piano parts, they are interesting, vital, subtle.”

Pop Matters

An oft-repeated piece of musical lore states that the great composer/arranger Duke Ellington wrote music specifically for the individuals in his orchestra. His knowledge of their musical lineage, strengths and weaknesses allowed him to customize parts for each voice. Pianist and composer Andy Milne takes this principle a step further on his new recording, The Seasons of Being. Applying the principles of homeopathic diagnosis, Milne generates an optimized environment for improvisation for his long running Dapp Theory ensemble and a host of special guests.A fearless, versatile explorer, pianist/composer Andy Milne has been a distinct and respected voice at the heart of New York’s creative jazz scene for over 20 years, collaborating with dancers, visual artists, poets and musicians spanning jazz, classical, pop, folk, and world music. At the piano he skillfully blends poetic gravitas with a playful sense of order.

He has recorded and toured throughout the world with Ravi Coltrane, Ralph Alessi, Carlos Ward and Carla Cook, and has collaborated with a range of artists including Andrew Cyrille, Sekou Sundiata, Avery Brooks, Bruce Cockburn, Fred Hersch, Ben Monder, Dianne Reeves, Jen Shyu, Tyshawn Sorey and Jamie Baum. A former student of Oscar Peterson, Milne was at the center of the M-BASE Collective as a core member of saxophonist Steve Coleman’s bands, as well as performing with Cassandra Wilson and Greg Osby. Milne composed and produced the scores for seven documentary films by acclaimed director William Shatner and has released nine recordings as a leader or co-leader.

(re: Terra Firma Irma)

If you’ve been in the jazz biz for any length of time, you’ll know the name Gabriel Mark Hasselbacha mad-skills hornmeister with a decidedly extensive palette of colors and textures.

Contemporary Jazz lovers will have heard many of his ubiquitous nine Billboard hits from a dozen albums
and know of his Album of the Year and Instrumentalist of the Year Awards

If you are a Classic Jazz lover, you would know Gabriel from his two mainstream JazzWeek charting albums,  including Come Out Swingin’, which included the debut of a young Michael Bublé, actually singing great jazz. 

Gabriel performed his MidCentury Modern Vol. 1 CD release shows during the New Orleans Jazz Festival, at the New Orleans Jazz Museum, so you know he can do that stuff too (we are talking funky, and swinging).

Refusing to be pigeonholed, Gabriel spreads his wings with MidCentury Modern Vol. 1, an engaging mainstream project, 

that showcases his commanding horn, and embraces all the highlights of the jazz experience without pandering or artifice. 

It seems to be an erudite and pleasing mix to the Grammy folks, too, so read the reviews ….. that’s why you need to have a listen! 

Good jazz is good jazz, and this album reaches jazz lovers of all stripes without dumbing-down the content or overwhelming any listener.

Rick Bogart
“Concerto for Jazz Clarinet and Orchestra” REVIEW
By Mick Carlon
Rick Bogart’s “Concerto for Jazz Clarinet and Orchestra” is a deeply moving, beautiful musical experience.  With lush strings and varied jazz rhythms, the piece is as fascinating as it is lovely.
What does the composer and clarinetist have to say about this exceptional composition?  “Why are jazz musicians so relegated to playing with small groups in jazz clubs?  Why can’t a jazz musician stand in front of a symphony orchestra and play music that has an improvised aspect?  Mozart, Beethoven, Bach—they were all gifted improvisers.  I really wanted to create something different—something that I could play every night if needed.”
After an opening movement that immediately captures the ear with its depth and beauty, the concerto then switches into a sultry rhythm redolent of rainy New Orleans nights.  “I was trying to make a lush Debussy background with the strings,” says Bogart, “with voicings you can only achieve with a string section—from the bass fiddle to the cello to the viola and to the violins.  You can really voice a chord nicely that way, spread over three octaves. I painstakingly tried to give the strings a full voicing and not be background as in pop music. (I tried) to form different backgrounds and different feelings in each movement connected with cadenzas.”
To this listener, Bogart’s concerto is a deeply involving experience, grabbing both the ear and the intellect, and it is all led by the composer’s liquid, gorgeous clarinet.  “The cheeky part of it all is that I really wanted to make ‘music history’ by writing a concerto for clarinet and orchestra in which the clarinet part is 95 percent improvised.”
For all of its beauty, this is one concerto that does not forget to swing.  “The opening minor theme is completely written out for the clarinet part.  From then on it is an extended set of chord changes against different string backgrounds. There’s a section of twelve bar blues that is not recognizable unless you count it because of the altered chords and dissonances—yet it still has a bluesy feeling.  There are two uptempo sections—one is in major and one is in minor—then for the last movement the concerto moves into the old New Orleans stop time choruses. The strings are playing the stop time along with the rhythm section—then into full rhythm with a perfectly placed flatted fifth in unison with the violins, and then it goes out from there with the strings playing with the piano, bass and drums.  I wasn’t sure if I could do it but…here it is.”
Here it is indeed.  This jazz concerto is a masterpiece of American music, an innovative creation that should be played around the globe.  If there is any justice left—and I believe there is—Rick Bogart’s “Concerto for Jazz Clarinet and Orchestra” will be collecting Grammy Awards next March.Mick Carlon
Acclaimed author for major publications on the subject of Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and a fictional book entitled Girl Singer-which in development for Broadway as a musical. Mick is a jazz promoter, and speaker. Specializing in Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong. He is a patron of the Arts.

Multi-Grammy® Award winning Spanish Harlem Orchestra founder Oscar Hernández is all about tradition. Born into a large Puerto Rican family living in the Bronx, it was the nearby Spanish Harlem neighborhood that shaped his cultural musical sensibilities. The soundtrack to this bustling enclave in the ‘60s, emanating from any given window on any given day, was a mix of Latin Jazz and American pop radio. In the spirit of this tradition the Spanish Harlem Orchestra was born.

A FEW REVIEWS OF DENNY ZEITLIN’S SOLO PIANO PERFORMANCES “…he is an improvisational artist whose skills are so expansive that he can integrate everything he hears into the fabric of his soloing. In the best sense, in the manner that has always been true of jazz’s finest improvisers, Zeitlin constantly stretches the creative envelope, measuring himself only against the infinite demands of his music.”
Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times
“…Zeitlin delivered a riveting solo performance.”
George Goodman, New York Times
“In supreme command of the keyboard…he employs striking dissonances, he constructs extraordinary edifices of harmonics, he can be marvelously pianistic, with a velvet subtlety of touch. He is an original…Denny Zeitlin stretches jazz piano beyond any hitherto defined limits.”
Don Freeman, San Diego Union
“…He didn’t show his brilliance through his technique (which he has), but through subtle improvisation, advanced and finely-tuned harmonic development, and a stupendous internal sense of meter…Denny Zeitlin’s solo piano was the unpretentious highpoint of the festival.”
Munchner Merkur (Munich)

Sergio Pereira – “Nu Brasil”
Best Latin Jazz Album
Listen On Spotify
shem.gif

Contemporary Fusion Reviews

Nu Brasil” – one of the most spirited Latin jazz tunes I’ve heard (yet) in 2018… you’ll be hearing this one in regular rotation on jazz stations across the country, guaranteed”.
“…as I listen to Sergio’s splendid guitar on the percussion-driven opener, “Down South“, the “thrill is back” – no doubt!…”

​”Trem Do Tempo” (Time Train) will sway you gently on your way to Latin jazz oblivion… I can (easily) see this one winning awards this year….”, 

Latin Jazz Network
 “…Mr Pereira has also taken a leap into the great unknown, so to speak, with music that has complex orchestrations, thereby mixing the traditions of men like Laurindo Almeida and Baden Powell with those of Heitor Villa-Lobos…” 

The Vinyl Anachronist
“Pereira’s compositions and arrangements lean toward the impressionistic, resulting in a sound that envelops you with warmth, vivaciousness and a miraculous gift of seduction”.

Sergio Pereira
“Nu Brasil”
(Zoho ZM 201808)
Street Date: September 7, 2018

Sergio Pereira-guitar,  Saxophonist Alexey Leon, Spain’s alto sax great Perico Sambeat, Cuban-born flutist and longtime New Yorker Oriente Lopez and Valencia, Spain-based trumpeter-arranger VoroGarcia. Sao Paulo-based electric guitarist Marcus Teixeira, French pianist Baptiste Bailly, Valencia-based bassist Ales Cesarini, Cuban-born bassist Ariel Ramirez, Brazilian harmonica virtuoso Gabriel Grossi and two Brazilian-born musicians now residing in New York City, pianist Helio Alves and drummer Mauricio Zottarelli.

Vocalists Paula Santoro, Sergio Santos and Viktorija Pilatovic lend an air of mystery and allure to the proceedings while rapper Devin Malloy adds the cherry on top of the buoyant opener, Down South.

There’s a certain something inherent in the music of Brazil that goes well beyond the notes and speaks more of the soul of a culture. Like the music of New Orleans, where the feel for an authentic second line rhythm grows out of the pace, the food, the flavor of the Crescent City, the persuasive rhythms of bossa nova and samba are ingrained in the hearts and souls of musicians from Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. For guitarist-composer Sergio Pereira, that feeling is deeply imbedded in his DNA and emerges through his distinctive comping patterns.“I learned by growing up listening to samba rhythms and playing Brazilian percussion at a local school of samba,” says the 59-year Rio native and longtime resident of New York City. “Since I was a kid I have been always playing samba rhythm, making that ‘batucada’ rhythm with my hands and fingers at school until my teachers would tell me to ‘stopmaking that noise!’ I still do it all the time. It’s addictive.”

Pereira’s samba addiction comes to full fruition in spectacular fashion on his ZOHO debut release Nu Brasil,his follow-upto his acclaimed 2016 debut, Swingando.The title Nu Brasil (“nu” = “naked” in Portuguese) references the beauty of his home country where however social inequality still prevails.

A collection of ten thoughtful compositions, this superb set features contributions from a luxuriant crew of 18 world-class musicians including Cuban-born saxophonist Alexey Leon, Spain’s alto sax great Perico Sambeat, Cuban-born flutist and longtime New Yorker Oriente Lopezand Valencia, Spain-based trumpeter-arranger Voro Garcia. Also on board for Pereira’s sophomore release are Sao Paulo-based electric guitarist Marcus Teixeira, French pianist Baptiste Bailly, Valencia-based bassistAles Cesarini, Cuban-born bassist Ariel Ramirez, Brazilian harmonica virtuoso Gabriel Grossiand two Brazilian-born musicians now residing in New York City ispianist Helio Alvesand drummer Mauricio Zottarelli.

Vocalists Paula Santoro, Sergio Santosand Viktorija Pilatoviclend an air of mystery and allure to the proceedings while rapper Devin Malloyadds the cherry on top of the buoyant opener, Down South. Says the composer, “I started to work on this song last summer while vacationing ‘down south’ in Puglia, Italy. Changing environment and location often provides me with great vibes for inspiration. It’s a happy samba groove with a magical soprano sax solo from Alexey. Devin’s rap is basically describing the experience of failure in pursuit of your dreams and talks about how life will continue to evolve and will pick you back up after you’ve fallen.” Bailly adds a cascading piano solo here while Pereira contributes an appealingly melodic, clean-toned solo on electric guitar.

East River is Pereira’s poignant reflection on the view from his Upper East Side neighborhood in Manhattan. “I frequently jog on the East Side by the East River and many times, after the jog, I just sit on a bench next to the 59thStreet Bridge looking over Roosevelt Island and Long Island City,” he explains. “It’s very peaceful there with the nice breeze from the river, the sounds of boats going by and the FDR Drive humming with vehicles.” The easy-going number opens with sparse solo piano before being joined by lush strings arranged by Garcia. Pereira plays the opening strains of the melody on his nylon string acoustic then scats simultaneously with his solo on this affecting number, which also carries a slight tinge of melancholy. As he explains, “When my older daughter, now 23, was 4 or 5 years old, we lived on Roosevelt Island.  We had an amazing time together there and I miss those moments. The strings bring out the melancholic moments I had, which I dearly miss, when my daughter was little.”

The seductive Arpoadoris an ode to the beach of that name on the south side of Rio de Janeiro where Pereira spent a lot of his youth. “This was my favorite beach, where I used to wake up really early in the morning to go surfing with friends,” he recalls. “Cool and hip crowds used to hang out there at sunset. People fell in love, hearts were broken and memories were left behind. It’s reminiscing about the time when I was 19, right before I moved to New York — some of the best moments of my life.” Singer Santoro narrates the story of love, passion, beach, summer and the sea with an enchanting delivery that combines the smooth allure of bossa nova and the freewheeling abandon of jazz in her delicious scatting passages and call-and-response exchanges with pianist Bailly near the end of the piece.

Greta is an affecting jazz waltz that Pereira wrote for his newly-born niece. “She is sweet, mellow, easy and tender just like this song,” he says. Flutist Lopez brings the mellowness, tenderness and jazziness that the song calls for while singer Sergio Santos doubles Pereira’s tender electric guitar melody with some sweet falsetto singing. Drummer Zottarelli deftly underscores the proceedings with some briskly swinging brushwork.

The energized title trackNu Brasilis fueled by Pereira’s infectious comping and showcases Lithuanian-born singer Pilatovic, who engages in some rapid-fire scat-and-trumpet exchanges with Garcia at the tag. Originally an instrumental, lyricist Paulinho Nunes brings new life to the upbeat piece while Pilatovic, singing in Portuguese with a ‘Carioca’ accent, brings a jazzy flair to this groovy samba.

Garcia arranges the strings on the lush Per Teand offers a warm, melodic flugelhorn solo on this inviting number. The tight Joao Donato-influenced samba/bossa Sambinhacomes charging right out of the gate with guitar and harmonica locked in tandem on the buoyant theme. Sao Paulo-based electric guitarist Marcus Teixeira, a former teacher of Pereira’s, contributes a Bensonesque solo over the percolating undercurrent provided by drummer Zottarelli and bassist Ramirez. Pianist Alves adds some jazzy improvising on this infectious groove while harmonica ace Grossi contributes remarkably flowing legato lines over the top.
PercussionistDavid Gadeajoins Pereira to fuel this fiery samba groove.

The minor key Trem Do Tempocarries a tinge of melancholy on top of an undulating Ixeja rhythm. Lopez contributes a lovely flute solo while Santoro delivers the alluring Portuguese lyrics in her own inimitable style. Nunes again brings new life to the song with his thoughtful lyrics, which tell us a story about life and the passage of time: “Life is like a train/it slips through your hands/it does not stop in every station. Life is to be lived at each moment. Live it…live it…and live it.”

14 Clicks Away, a slow bossa nova fueled by Zottarelli’s brushwork and Pereira’s steady comping, features an elegant solo by pianist Alves and also showcases Sambeat in Getz-ian mode on this restful, gently grooving number.

The album closes with the jazzy bossa nova Lascia Stare,which fluctuates between sadness and happiness and features Pereira doubling the melody with Grossi. “I always heard the more melancholic first part of the song with a harmonica, so Gabriel was my number one choice to deliver that feeling,” says Pereira.” The leader’s electric guitar solo here is typically melodic and flowing while Bailly adds sparkle with his piano solo. The title, Pereira explains, is an Italian expression which roughly translates to ‘let it go’ or ‘don’t bother yourself with it.’”

From opener to closer, Nu Brasiltakes the listener on a journey that is brimming with exhilaration and passion, soulful reflection and deep-seated feelings that speak of Pereira’s homeland. — Bill Milkowski

“A great range of pieces with varying instrumentation but in each case the flute sings and soars – it’s great to hear new works that have a tonal basis and a melodic richness, and you perform with superb intonation, a great sense of tempo & dynamics and with a great interpretive sense – very well done & really great to listen to.”   Phoenix Classical

 

“Radiance is right! It is a beautiful experience to listen through all the magical music on the CD and feel radiant and nourished! I am so moved by your recording of Sonata (Three Lakes) — the current ebbs and flows, the exciting parts are excitedly stimulating, and the pacing is deeply romantic. I look forward to listening again and again! Brava”, Daniel Dorff

 

“Incredible work of Patty, Steve, Kristin, Kristy, Gerall, Jessica and Darren makes me feel extremely proud to have my song as part of this CD! Beautiful sounds of flutes, voice, piano and harp make my heart feel all the joy of this musical fest! Great selection of songs, magical sounds of flute, fabulous ensemble work, all of those make this disc truly unique!”

“A great collection of music played with musicality and virtuosity by you and all the musicians involved. I’m very proud that my composition Serenata was included in the repertoire of this beautiful recording.” Carlos Franzetti

A sublime three-movement symphonic poem for piano and orchestra. Franzetti reaches his peak as a classical composer, a master in the same level of Brouwer, Scriabin, Delius and Ogerman, while his wife Allison displays her virtuosic talents as one of the world’s greatest pianists.

From Latin Jazz Network by Raul da Gama:
This astonishing account from the pen of Mr. Franzetti clearly sets him up as one of Argentina’s greatest contemporary composers. The performance headlined by Ms. Brewster Franzetti’s piano work together with the ensemble performance by the City of Prague Philharmonic is fantastically seductive.

It’s just wonderful!”
 Alan & Marilyn Bergman  Legendary Grammy/Oscar winning songwriters“It was a wonderful surprise. I can’t think of a better Christmas present! Jake & Roger’s rendition truly brings the song to life.”
Johnny Mandel    Legendary Grammy / Oscar Winning Songwriter

“Swings like a young Tony Bennett. Add Roger Kellaway and some solid jazzbos to the mix and you get this record that runs so deep”. 
Chris Spector    Midwest Record

Broadway Star and Brooklyn Hall of Famer Jake Ehrenreich joins with Grammy winner / Oscar nominee Roger Kellaway in this critically acclaimed Holiday Release.

Jake and Roger first clicked musically when Jake sang Forget The Woman at a memorial for the great conductor and composer Ettore Stratta, who had written the song for Tony Bennett and his The Art of Excellence Album. The bond between the two was born. Jake flew to LA to record with Roger’s LA Trio featuring Bruce Forman and Dan Lutz. They added Kevin Winard on percussion and the result is this surprising and unique new recording.

A Jewish child of Holocaust Survivors who incongruously grew up loving Christmas music, Jake first explored this theme in his hit Broadway show A Jew Grows in Brooklyn, where the New York Times raved “…a beautiful medley of Christmas Songs written by Jewish composers. Mr. Ehrenreich has a strong voice…his finest moments are dazzling.”

This recording is truly a dream come true.

“…Certainly one of the most influential voices on chromatic harmonica since Stevie Wonder and the late Toots Thielemans….”   JazzTimes – Philip Booth“… While all jazz harmonica players start out in the shadow of Toots Thielemans, Meurkens has come the closest of anyone to filling the gap left by Thielemans’ passing. Meurkens has his own sound and approach to the instrument and can play bop, Brazilian music and ballads with the best…” L.A. Jazz Scene – Scott Yanow

“All of a sudden it seems that Hendrik Meurkens is the jazz harmonica player to know…“Cabin in the Sky” is an almost instant classic…(Meurkens’) approach to jazz and to harmonica playing have broadened the instrument’s use in the genre…(Meurkens) is now considered today’s pre-eminent jazz harmonica player….” Lemon Wire – Dodie Miller-Gould

“… truly some of the best duo jazz I’ve heard in 2018.”  Dick Metcalf – Contemporary Fusion Reviews

“It is perhaps inevitable that people should start hailing Hendrik Meurkens as the new Toots Thielemans…”  All About Jazz – Chris Mosey
Hendrik Meurkens and Bill Cunliffe present a dynamic harmonica/piano collaboration on their new release, Cabin in the Sky
Jazz harmonica maven Hendrik Meurkens teams up with acclaimed pianist Bill Cunliffe to present a unique and wonderful mix of tunes on their new duo album, Cabin in the Sky. In addition to several originals, the CD includes compositions by outstanding contributors to the jazz repertoire including Wayne Shorter, Joe Zawinul, and Antonio Carlos Jobim, plus surprises like a sultry, bluesy version of “Ode to Billie Joe,” the 1967 hit from pop/country singer Bobbie Gentry. Coincidentally, “Ode to Billie Joe” is one of several of the compositions on the album that have their roots in Broadway shows and movies, including the title track, “Invitation,” and “Speak Low.” According to Meurkens, “We did not choose the material with that in mind but as it happens some of the best songs out there are written for Broadway, and I love a good song. I am not so much interested in breaking the latest barrier and pushing the jazz envelope but I am interested in playing beautiful music that warms the heart.” Cabin in the Sky highlights include: “Afternoon”: Cunliffe wrote the rich string arrangements that add such warmth and delicacy to this Meurkens composition. Levity meets virtuosity in this delightfully unique version of Jobim’s “Wave,” replete with references to “Smoke on the Water.” Written by the unlikely duo of Kurt Weill and Ogden Nash, “Speak Low” is played at a slightly sprightlier pace than usual, but with great feeling nevertheless.
Cabin in the Sky is the first recording for Meurkens and Cunliffe, who have talked about meeting in the studio for years, perhaps inspired in part by Affinity, the classic harmonica/piano collaboration of Toots Thielemans and Bill Evans. “This CD goes a little bit in that direction, as it features mostly lyrical material, which is where the harmonica shines anyway,” notes the German-born, New York-based Meurkens. Hearing the legendary Toots Thielemans inspired Meurkens to switch to harmonica from his original instrument, vibes. Now widely regarded as today’s pre-eminent jazz harmonica players in the tradition of Toots Thielemans, Meurkens is also an acclaimed composer in jazz, Latin, and Brazilian styles. Having released more than two dozen albums as leader or coleader, Meurkens is also an in-demand sideman and soloist, appearing with Jimmy Cobb, Ivan Lins, Monty Alexander, Claudio Roditi, Astrid Gilberto, Ray Brown, Paquito D’Rivera, and others.
Pianist Bill Cunliffe has proved himself at home in multiple settings from this duo to trios, big bands, Latin bands, and classical-jazz ensembles; he is also an acclaimed soloist with symphony orchestras. A Grammy-winning arranger, Cunliffe has received multiple Emmy and Grammy nominations, and has released more than a dozen albums as a leader, authored several books, and composed several film scores. He is an in-demand jazz sideman, having worked with masters including Frank Sinatra, Buddy Rich, Joe Henderson, Woody Shaw, Freddie Hubbard, James Moody, and Benny Golson.
With Cabin in the Sky, Meurkens and Cunliffe reveal a new side to their virtuosity. Let’s hope this simpatico duo won’t keep listeners waiting to long for a follow up to this great new CD.

Best World Music Album 
Sultans of String – Christmas Caravan

 

This follows our great trajectory with this album that hit Billboard World Music Charts for three weeks, and was featured in the New York Times Christmas Hits List!

Christmas Caravan takes listeners on a world music tour. 3-time JUNO nominees and 3-time CFMA winning ambassadors of musical diversity Sultans of String have expanded the traditional notion of Christmas music with their new, genre-hopping disc, Christmas Caravan, injecting it with new-found energy and non-traditional sounds. Recorded and co-produced with JUNO Award winning engineer John ‘”Beetle” Bailey, this isn’t your typical holiday album. You may recognize a few titles, but you’ve never experienced seasonal music quite like this before.

“Canadian band Sultans of String keeps imaginative imperatives in overdrive for the entirety of Christmas Caravan, a generous pitch for global unity through the music of Christmas, Kwanzaa and Hanukkah. These five musicians have jubilantly recharged the classics with arrangements that demand attention. ★★★★ Downbeat, USA

“An amazing world beat Christmas where even the tried and true is taken to such new and amazing lengths. Very hot stuff clearly made to chase the cold winter away”
Midwest Record, USA

Sultans of String’s acclaimed world music tapestry has been amplified on this release through its embrace of orchestration and pop, and spurred on by a stellar cast of guest musicians, bringing even more colour to their lively palette.
“We wanted to make a real contribution to the Christmas repertoire, and hopefully create some new standards” says bandleader/violinist and Queens Diamond Jubilee recipient Chris McKhool. “This is a Christmas album, but approached from the perspective of a world-music band. We explored diverse genres, from Quebecois fiddle tunes to collaborating with a traditional Turkish string ensemble, and jump around from the classic sounds of the Andrews Sisters, to a Himalayan sleigh ride, African roots music, gypsy-jazz, rumba flamenco, ska, and the grandeur of the symphony.”

Featuring…

First, the band made a dream list of their favourite vocal and instrumental artists to join in on this musical sleigh ride. Their holiday wish came true with these amazing guests appearing on the recording:

• 6-time Grammy winning Paddy Moloney (The Chieftains),
• Ruben Blades & Luba Mason (Panamanian 7 Grammy and 5 Latin Grammy winner),
• platinum-selling jazz vocalist Nikki Yanofsky;
• 2-time JUNO/Grammy winner Alex Cuba;
• Benoit Bourque of Quebec’s La Bottine Souriante (3 JUNOs, 4 gold, 3 platinum records);
• Sweet Honey in the Rock (Grammy winning, all-woman, African-American a cappella group);
• Cameroon’s Richard Bona (Paul Simon, Herbie Hancock);
• Canada’s singer to the stars Rebecca Campbell (Emmylou Harris, Alanis Morissette);
• singer Mary Fahl from NYC’s October Project;
• Gundem Yayli Grubu, a recording collective of Turkish Roma violinists in Istanbul;
• Sudanese-Canadian singer Waleed Abdulhamid;
• Nashville-based JUNO Award winning country singer Crystal Shawanda;
• sitar virtuoso Anwar Khurshid;
• and hang drum player David Charrier from France.

Why make a Christmas album for a band that has earned its street cred on performing music from diverse cultures? McKhool explains “My parents are from Lebanese and Egyptian backgrounds, and also celebrated Christmas in the home. So Christmas songs as well as music from around the globe were always part of my upbringing. With this record we created the spiritual Christmas album I have always wanted to hear that honoured this tradition, as well as bringing in diverse cultures. As a violin player, I also performed with string orchestras in my youth, so the icing on the cake was traveling to Prague to record with the City of Prague Symphony Orchestra! One of my favourite tracks, Jesous Ahatonhia (The Huron Carol), is fascinating to me. I went back into the archives and found a direct transliteration of the original Huron-Wendat lyrics, which were written in the 1600s by St Jean de Brebeuf. This is Canada’s first Christmas carol, and while there are some complex issues around this song, it is of great historical significance. Now people can hear the intent of the original lyrics for the very first time. Ojibwe artist Crystal Shawanda vocal is so compelling on this song!”

JAZZIZ Magazine – Bossa Hit “Quiet Nights” Relives Its Past Courtesy of Vocalist Alexandra Jackson
 ABOUT THE ALBUM:  “ALEXANDRA JACKSON: LEGACY & ALCHEMY”
In 2018 we celebrate the 60th anniversary of Bossa Nova; in 2017 we celebrated the 100th anniversary of Samba; and the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics was a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” for Brazil music and its synergy with American Jazz to be reintroduced to the world on the largest stage ever.  Legacy and Alchemy saw this as the moment in time to honor the great Brazilian music legacy.
The instant classic double CD also features the late Al Jarreau, Oscar Castro-Neves, Rod Temperton and Dona Ivone Lara, as well as Larry Dunn, Al McKay, Carlinhos Brown, Banda Black Rio, Hubert Laws, Siedah Garrett, Paulo Jobim, Daniel Jobim, Teo Lima, Armando Marcal, Paulo Calasans, Arthur Maia, Darryl Jones, Charles Floyd, and other Brazilian and American greats contributing to the historic album.

Composer Sherrie MaricleThe orchestra’s impressive longevity can be attributed partially to the aesthetic clarity with which [Maricle] guides the band…”I like tunes with melodies,” Maricle said. “For lack of a better term, ‘straightahead’ and swinging all the way.”
Downbeat Lean, muscled, physical, all-original and totally in-your-face like a good big band should be, these women could hold their own with any big band in history.

For 25 years, the DIVA Jazz Orchestra has toured the world to both critical and popular acclaim, performing with many of the most notable icons in jazz, playing music composed and arranged by some of the greatest writers in music.

To honor DIVA’s 25 year history and legacy of the band’s founder, Stanley Kay, Sherrie has tasked herself and has asked 9 other band members to compose and arrange a new piece of music to commemorate this significant milestone. To have 10 composers in the band, writing for the band, who have played together for years, who helped forge DIVA’s style and sound, who know the band’s history, who know and respect each other musically and genuinely like each other, has given them a remarkable opportunity to create and share their first all-original DIVA plays DIVA recording; 10 original writers composing for 15 friends in 1 amazing band

GARY LUCAS PLAYS SPANISH “DRACULA” at THE METROGRAPH NYC FRI. OCT. 19th at 7:30pm

Gary Lucas in Liberec Bohemia   photo montage by Caroline Conejero and Richard Mader

GARY LUCAS accompanies the legendary 1931 Spanish-language “Dracula” film with his original live solo guitar score at The Metrograph, NYC’s premier art-house cinema, on Fri. Oct. 19th at 7:30pm.

Filmed in Hollywood at night on the same sets as Todd Browning’s “Dracula”, directed by George Melford  and featuring an-all Latin cast  (this was before the advent of dubbing technology), the film, like “Dracula” is music-free— Lucas has composed a continuous solo guitar underscore that plays throughout.

Many critics consider this version superior to the original film in terms of its fluid editing rhythms, mobile camera-work, more florid and sensual costumes, and memorable performances by Carlos Villarias as the Conde and Lupita Tovar as Eva.

A pioneer of live film scoring going back to his 1989 live duo score with Walter Horn for “The Golem”,  Lucas premiered his Spanish “Dracula” live score in Dec. 2009 at the La Rampa Cinema for the Havana Film Festival, where it received rave reviews— and has since gone on to perform with the film all over the world, including well-received shows shows at Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, the Transylvania Film Festival,

Sevilla Film Festival, Jerusalem Film Festival, Cineteca Nacional in Mexico City, Krakow Off-Plus Camera Festival, New York Film Festival, Lodz Cinergia Festival,  and many others:

This is the first installment in a retrospective series of Gary Lucas’ live film scores at The Metrograph:
