The Last Dance Volumes 1 and 2Dominic Duval (Bass), Cecil Taylor (Piano)Recorded live in performance, this is arguably the definitive collaboration between Dominic Duval and Cecil Taylor during their 10-year tenure together. And for those who think they know all Cecil Taylor, this is something else; Cecil Taylor like you've never heard before. Additionally, it's a budget priced 2-fer in a soft pack. StringsSalim Washington (Primary), Alva Anderson (Saxophone), Charlie Burnham (Viola), Henry Cook (Flute), Akua Dixon (Cello), Melanie Dyer (Viola), Rosi Hertlein (Violin), Clarissa Howell (Cello), Hakim Jami (Bass), Howard Johnson (Clarinet), Mark Johnson (Drums), Jaribu Shahid (Bass)Here is an ambitious effort by all concerned, a unique gathering and scoring of some very heartfelt music. The result is uplifting spirit music to both dance to and ponder. This is a celebratory event and will appeal to a broad range of Jazz and "non-Jazz" ...

PandemoniumBarry Wallenstien (Primary), John Hicks (Piano), Curtis Lundy (Bass), Vincent Chancey (French Horn), Daniel Carter (Saxophone), Serge Pesce (Guitar), Barry Wallenstein (Vocals)Barry Wallenstein is both a poet (he wrote the text on these fifteen cuts), a voice (his is the distinctive and warm voice heard here), and a player (dig how his texts, delivery, and coloring integrate within the septet). This is the second issue on Cadence Jazz Records for this much-honored poet whose other recorded collaborations over the past 30 years have included Stanley Cowell, Charles Tyler, and Arthur Blythe. Barry's poetry speaks warmly of hard things and over the course of the program conveys a range of emotions, all very human, all very believable. A 20-page booklet with full text accompanies this exceptional work. Easily accessible to both those who appreciate unhackneyed prose and poetry as well as those who appreciate uncompromised improvised music. Live at KaldisRon Enyard (Primary), Paula Owen (Vocals), Cal Collins (Guitar), Ed Felson (Bass)This is only Paula Owen's fourth release and once again she is in the presence of Indy Jazz guru/mentor, Ron Enyard. An historical date from 1995, it features the late guitarist, Cal Collins; Ed Felson on bass completes the quartet. Fans of great Jazz singers know Paula and treasure the few recordings she has made. Any new Paula Owen release is an event to be enjoyed. This is an unexpected ... Don't Count On GloryLindsey Horner (Bass), Jeff Berman (Percussion), Uri Caine (Piano), Jim DiSpirito (Percussion), Marty Ehrlich (Saxophone), Colter Harper (Guitar), Neal Kirkwood (Piano), Brian Lynch (Trumpet), Pete McCann (Guitar), Allison Miller (Drums), Ben Opie (Saxophone), Bobby Previte (Drums), Lou tellute (Saxophone), Eric Susoeff (Guitar), Dave Throckmorton (Drums), Lieven Venken (Drums)Lindsey Horner is best known as a bassist (though his reeds make an appearance on this date) who's been one of the players in the thick of the post '70s New York improvising scene. But for those who have followed his own releases, it's clear that his is a rather distinct color from most of his colleagues. This recording was a few years in the making, but as Bob Rusch says in the program notes, "...this is the logical point Lindsey‚Äôs music has been moving toward...and is his most idiomatically realized to date." Emotional and intellectual depth unite here, making good music great music. Beyond Is And Is NotChris Kelsey (Soprano Saxophone)The return of Chris Kelsey after a short hiatus continues to bear tasty and distinct fruit. Kelsey is one of the most distinct soprano saxists on the scene, a composer of substance and a very intense player. After two brilliant recent CIMP outings, Chris turns to Jazz standards and goes solo. It's a gutsy statement by someone who takes recording and his artistry seriously. This will set a standard for the future. All The NotesCecil Taylor (Piano), Dominic Duval (Bass), Jackson Krall (Drums)All the notes here are in the music, not in the liners. This is the concert that Minnesotans have been speaking about since 2000. This massive 3 part improvisations featuring Mr. Taylor with his trio of the past 10 years finds them at the top of their game. An important document and a memorable night.
Improvisation I - Improvisation II - Improvisation III. You Must Believe In SwingMarc Pompe (Vocals), Joey Defrancesco (Hammond B-3), Henry Johnson (Guitar), Byron Landham (Drums), Curt Warren (Guitar), Judy Roberts (Piano)Marc Pompe is a distinct and memorable singer. he's been at it for over 50 years, but had scarce documentation. More concerned with the art than the commerce, Mr. Pompe, Cadence Records, and CIMP Records have set about to rectify the situation with a series of 3 recordings to be released over the next handful of months.
You Must Believe in Swing is simply a great recording. And if you're a fan of the art of the Jazz singer - give this a try. With 2 more releases to follow, you know we stand behind Marc Pompe's artistry. In The SunlightBob Magnuson (Soprano Saxophone), Tom DeSteno (Drums), Cameron Brown (Bass), Jason Hwang (Violin), Rolf Sturm (Guitar), Ed Neumeister (Trombone), Scott Healy (Piano), Gary Guzio (Trumpet), Eric Goletz (Trombone)This is an odd one for Cadence Jazz and the Magnuson-Desteno duo. Electronics, synthesizers, even a suggestion of fusion. But musically it has integrity and all the parts hang together (tracks range from under a minute to over 17 minutes) to produce a haunting whole that’s greater than the sum of its parts. CongenialityMitch Seidman (Guitar), Charlie Kohlhase (Alto Saxophone), Jeff Galindo (Trombone)What an odd set of instruments for a trio: guitar, sax, and trombone. Odd, but the musicality is undeniable as they ramble through 9 tracks of material by Monk, Hemphill, Mangelsdorff, Basie, and originals from Galindo and Kohlhase. And it all seems so natural that one can ignore the challenge if one so chooses. But this will delight those who like to be engaged by music.
Knudstock 2000Herb Robertson (Cornet), Frank Grasso (Piccolo Trumpet), Steve Swell (Trombone), Bob Hovey (Trombone), Bob Ackerman (Flute), Knud Jensen (Tenor Saxophone), Jim Hart (Guitar), Hans Tammen (Guitar), Chris Lough (Contrabass), Tom Sayek (Drums), Herb Fisher (Drums)This was one of the many informal jams a group of improvisers engaged in at Knud’s place in New Jersey. A musician’s jam for musicians. This one was recorded and its dynamic unpretentious self is here as presented. Included are some delightful background notes by the artists themselves. Just PeaceRosella Clemmons Washington (Vocals), Bill Meek, Jr. (Keyboards), Dawn Crist (Keyboards), Tyrone Brown (Bass), Dave Brown (Drums), Grover Washington, Jr. (Tenor Saxophone), John Blake (Violin), Cecil Bridgewater (Trumpet)As the liners detail this was an imperfect date in that, shall we say, the recording mechanics were skewed and flawed. But what is evident is the exceptional voice of Rosella Washington in her debut release. Fortunately some things can be “redone,” as was the case here due to the unfortunate death of Grover Washington. But even so this is a phenomenal record of memorable music unforgettably delivered by Ms. Washington. A true case of perfect imperfection. Sweet DreamsAmanda Pucci Jhones (Primary), Kenny Barron (Primary), Hilliard Greene (Primary), Dwayne "Cook" Braodnax (Primary), Casey Benjamin (Primary), Karl Martin Almquist (Primary), Morten Faerestrand (Primary), Kenyatta Beasley (Primary)Cadence and CIMP don’t record vocalists often, but, when we do, you can bet they are distinctive. This was Pucci Amanda Jhones’ first recording and directly led to a CIMP session (#170). It’s a remarkably strong and distinctive debut. Orkestra Kith 'n KinHans Reichel (Guitar), Thomas Borgmann (Soprano Saxophone), Lol Coxhill (Soprano Saxophone), Erik Balke (Sopraino Saxophone), Dietmar Diesner (Soprano Saxophone), Jonas Akerblom (Bass Saxophone), Martin Mayes (French Horn), Pat Thomas (Piano), Christoph Winckel (Bass), Mark Sanders (Drums)Wow. Big group, powerful personalities, led by the powerhouse, Mr. Borgmann. Perhaps it’s led by “Turning Loose”—contained within the structure of this extended work is fiery unrestrained playing. The CD concludes with some prime Lol Coxhill humor creations. Home On The RangeChuck Florence (Tenor Saxophone), Jaki Byard (Piano), Alan Dawson (Percussion), Clipper Anderson (Bass)Chuck Florence lives in Montana. In fact, his first recording (with a little known but outstanding group that included Jack Walrath, Bob Nell, and Kelly Roberts) was called U. Home on the Range is Mr. Florence’s debut as a leader and it’s a refreshing Bop outing as expansive in its approach and directness as the Big Sky Country itself. Special note to the featured work of Jaki Byard who, though not the leader, lays down some of his most classic work.

InnocenceJoe Gallivan (Drums), Marcio Mattos (Bass), Elton Dean (Alto Saxello), Evan Parker (Soprano), Neil Metcalf (Flute), Guy Barker (Trumpet), Gerard Presencer (Trumpet), Claude Deppa (Trumpet), Jim Dvorak (Trumpet), Paul Rutherford (Trombone), Ashley Slater (Bass Trombone)Big works by a big group. This remains our favorite Joe Gallivan recording in a career that was first documented back in 1961. Unfortunately this astounding assemblage of players was documented on only one recording, but the extended tracks offer up just the kind of intriguing power and movement that you might hope for from some of Europe’s finest improvisers. Passionate music. Seeking SpiritBobby Zankel (Alto Saxophone), Odean Pope (Tenor Saxophone), Johnny Coles (Trumpet), Ray Wright (Baritone Saxophone), Tyrone Brown (Bass), Stan Slotter (Trumpet), Sumi Tonooka (Piano), Craig McIver (Drums), Uri Caine (Piano), David Gibson (Drums)A distinctive orchestrater, composer, and instrumentalist Bobby Zankel over the years has remained a Philadelphia musicians’ musician. This is his debut recording and it remains one of his finest. If you’re not familiar with this notable musician’s work, start here and we think you’ll be impressed enough to move through other documents of his body of work Ernie Krivda JazzErnie Krivda (Tenor Sax), Bob Fraser (Guitar), Jeff Halsey (Bass), Gary Aprile (Bass), Roger Hines (Bass), Chris Berger (Bass), Pat Hallaran (Trombone), Pete Selvaggio (Accordion), Joe Hunter (Piano), Paul Samuels (Drums), Scott Davis (Drums), Dennis Reynolds (Trumpet), Mike Hazlett (Trumpet)
