Live at the Detroit Montreux Jazz Fest 1981Bob Szajner (Piano), Ed Pickens (Bass), Frank Isola (Drums)Live at the Detroit Montreux Jazz Fest 1981
CADENCE JAZZ 1215: Bob Szajner is a bopster and prolific composer. He's been in and out of the Detroit Jazz scene since the 1950's. This release documents one of his last concerts and gives ample evidence of his talents and abilities. Complementing this package are extensive notes by the pianist along with perspectives by Michael Nastos and Bob Rusch. This nicely fills in a gap in Detroit's Jazz history and is the complete package. If You Should GoTomas Ulrich (Primary), Rolf Sturm (Guitar), Michael Bisio (Bass)Welcome to the debut of Tomas Ulrich's Cargo Cult. This recording so impressed the folks at CIMP Records that they immediately contracted for three recordings on that label. Hard to describe this group as it comfortably draws from a broad pallet, not just from the Jazz/improvised music genre but from the so-called Classical, Pop, and Rock genres. On this live date you'll get Cargo Cult in the raw ... Ride Of Your LifeGeorge Dulin Disband (Primary), Danny Zanker (Bass), Take Toriyama (Drums), Jordan Perlson (Drums), George Dulin (Piano)This is George Dulin’s first release and what a wondrous debut. Cadence Jazz suspects he may be a new stylist—but with only one release it’s hard to tell. What is certain: he is assured and mature in his original workings based, basically, on some great old standards.
For those who think inside can no longer challenge direction and performance, this will test that assumption. The liners say he’s “an alchemy of Bud Powell and Don Pullen” while George Garzone calls him unique. We just call it wonderful listening. 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" ... Partners in CrimeMat Marucci (Primary), Doug Webb (Saxophone), Joe Dolister (Bass)This Marucci-Webb collaboration predates the remarkable CIMP recordings by this well matched team (CIMPs 346 and 356). This trio recording‚Äîmade live in 2004 in Sacramento, California‚Äîis a nice combination of originals and standards. Those familiar with their previous releases will immediately recognize the style of this one's accessible inventiveness. If this is a crime, it sure is a ... AireMathias Rissi (Tenor-Alto Saxophone), Guerino Mazzola (Grand Piano), Heinz Geisser (Percussion)With this release, AIRE, this charging, dynamic, and inventive trio completes the cycle of elements of life that previously included Fuego (Creative Works Records), Tierra (CadenceJazz 1130) and Agua (CadenceJazz 1150). If you're still not familiar with the individual or group work of these 3 dynamos, this is as good a place to start as any. Hard music for hard listening. My Fingers Will Be Your TearsAndrew Drury (Primary), Briggan Krauss (Saxophone), Myra Melford (Piano)Andrew Drury, as evidenced on this fine recording, is obviously a drummer with both a secure rhythmic sense and the ability to mess with metronomic time (yet still hold the flow of the music). Andrew brings together Myra Melford's directional piano and Briggan Krauss' distinctive sax approach/sound to form a power trio that fearlessly throws itself into edgy compositions and constructions. ...
