What The Critics Are Saying

This lavish package looks to be a contender
for jazz gift of the year.
” – The Wall Street Journal

“It’s among the nicest box productions I’ve seen.” – Analog Planet

…the sound is ‘you are there’ outstanding!” – Michael Fremer, Analog Planet

A household name and major concert attraction in his prime, he has
recently regained a measure of cultural cachet
.” – NPR Music

“…the jazz pianist’s achievements are worthy of a centennial celebration
that arrives this week in the form of a 189-song boxed set.”
 – Forbes

Symphony Hall Concert
On January 17, 1959, jazz immortal Erroll Garner took the stage of Boston’s Symphony Hall for a historic performance to a sold-out crowd. Recorded 11 months prior to the Dreamstreet sessions, which heralded Garner’s return after a lengthy battle for control over his catalog, Symphony Hall Concert is a previously unreleased compilation capturing the unparalleled genius of Garner’s live performances at the beginning of one of the most defining years of his life.

Kenny Garrett’s Review in
“London Jazz News”

Photo by Hollis King

Kenny Garrett’s albums were nominated no fewer than eight times for the Grammy® in the period 1997-2013. It would be astonishing if Sounds from the Ancestors wasn’t also nominated; perhaps it might even win. Garrett continues to compose and perform at the highest level and to make tuneful and accessible music whilst still retaining his integrity.” – London Jazz News

Kenny Garrett’s Feature in Germany’s Leading Magazine “Jazzthing”

Photo by Hollis King

Kenny Garrett was featured in the September issue of Germany’s leading publication, Jazzthing. Inside, you will find an astonishing three-page feature about Kenny and his new album Sounds from the Ancestors.

Kenny Garrett knows very well the present is the tradition of tomorrow. Whether he, too, will be perceived in the future as a driving force of the present like the ancestors to whom he refers remains to be seen. With his new album, he is at least on a path of purification that no one would have believed him capable of ten years ago.” – Jazzthing

Happy Birthday Cécile McLorin Salvant!

“Cécile McLorin Salvant, the finest jazz singer to emerge in the last decade, combines the rigorous sensitivities of an artist with the wary calculation of a critic. Her whole bearing as a performer — judicious, confiding, theatrical, skeptical — suggests a watchful distance from the persona she so persuasively embodies.” – New York Times

Celebrate Cécile‘s birthday, coming up this Saturday, with this collection of her soulful, mesmerizing songs.

Michael Mayo’s Bones Review in German Magazine “RONDO”

Photo by Shervin Lainez

“In the video for his song ‘You and You,’ Michael Mayo appears as a double who sings with himself. The vocalist could not have chosen a more fitting image for his debut. For duality is the defining theme of the album debut, which the twenty-something…presents with Bones.

With all the ambivalences sung about so precisely, there is at least one thing that is unambiguous: Mayo, who also explicitly confesses his bisexuality and thus his inner duality with the recording, succeeds with Bones in a big way. Similar to the German Michael Schiefel or the Brit Jacob Collier, he redefines the possibilities of the voice in the age of its technical multiplication potentials. And he does so gently and at peace with himself.”  – RONDO

JAS Cafe Live: Christian McBride & Tip City ft. Emmet Cohen & Dan Wilson

“The phrase ‘Tip City’ was a phrase that two of my late great mentors used, the great pianists Mulgrew Miller and James Williams. They used to have this thing where if something was swinging really hard, they wouldn’t say it was swinging, they will say it was tipping… I used to think that was such a hit phrase. Now when it really got good to them, they would come off the stage and they would go: ‘Tip City!’ And I’ll say, ‘I’m keeping that.'” – Christian McBride

Watch Christian McBride & Tip City featuring Emmet Cohen & Dan Wilson from their live performance at JAS Cafe in Aspen, CO.
