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 ... 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. 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, Thru, and OutHiro Honshuku (Flute), Jim Hobbs (Alto Saxophone), Jeff Hudgins (Alto Saxophone), Phil Scarff (Tenor Saxophone), Hans Indigo (Baritone Saxophone), Mike Peipman (Trumpet), Keiichi Hashimoto (Trumpet), Jim Mosher (French Horn), Bob Pilkington (Trombone), David Harris (Trombone), Jim Gray (Tuba), Rebecca Shrimpton (Voice), Art Bailey (Piano), Norm Zocher (Guitar), Rick McLaughlin (Acoustic Bass), Rich Greenblatt (Vibraphone), Harvey Wirht (Drums), Taki Masuko (Percussion), Darrell Katz (Composer), Laura Andel (Composer), Warren Senders (Composer)The Jazz Composers Alliance Orchestra outdoes itself on this release, creating large music carefully detailed and with climaxes worthy of the talents of this 18-piece ensemble. Included in the program is the tribute, “Hemphill,” a 4-part opus celebrating the spirit of Julius Hemphill. A big band with big concepts executed by big talents. 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. A Sandole TrilogyDennis Sandole (Guitar), Al DelGovernatore (Piano), Wendell Marshall (Bass), Frank Young (Drums), Michael Grossman (Piano), John Stubblefield (Tenor Saxophone), Tony Garnier (Bass), Mike Clark (Drums)Dennis Sandole was a legendary Philadelphia-based guitarist, teacher, and guru to a host of eventual East Coast Jazz giants. These recordings were recovered from the dustbin of Mr. Sandole’s archives and cover his work between 1958 to 1991, and sadly, account for a good percentage of his available recorded legacy. As an added bonus, one track features the Michael Grossman-John Stubblefield-Tony Garnier-Mike Clark 4tet playing a Sandole composition. 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. 48 MotivesGeoff Brady (Percussion), Marilyn Grispell (Piano), Vincent Davis (Percussion), Stephen Dembski (Conductor), Scott Fields (Guitar), Joseph Jarman (Alto Saxophone), John Padden (Double Bass), Hans Sturm (Double Bass), Matt Turner (Cello)Scott Fields works in highly disciplined forms. Here it’s a modern day bolero. When we first heard this we were puzzled, but, by the end, pulled in and subdued by its subtle combinations of repetition and improvisation. DreamlandDarrell Katz (Conductor), Julius Hemphill (Alto Saxophone), John Carlson (Trumpet), Rob Scheps (Tenor Saxophone), Bob Pilkington (Trombone), Doug Johnson (Piano), David Harris (Trombone), W. Marshall Sealy (French Horn), Douglas Yate (Alto Saxophone), Mike Peipman (Trumpet), Rick Peckham (Guitar), Diana Herold (vibraphone), Andrew D'Angelo (Alto Saxophone), John Dirac (Guitar)Darrell Katz is an enigma to those who know him. Obsessed and driven by his musical visions, he’s managed to squeeze out a handful of recordings over the years while somehow maintaining a stable group in the Jazz Composers Alliance Orchestra. If you like music that’s engaging of both mind and pulse, this is—as are all of his recordings—a feast. Anyone who has played or come in contact with this too overlooked aggregation will agree it is a distinct occurrence.
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)
