For Sale: Five Million CashDavid Haney (Piano), Julian Priester (Trombone)Here is a collaboration that, for a number of years, has been active‚and it shows. There is an intuitive interplay between these two as they present a live recording of 10 unhurried improvisations in a moving display of statement, tension, and space, all combining to make beautiful music sure to calm and inspire deeply. 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. Hollywood WeddingAdam Lane (Bass), Lynn Johnston (Reeds), Brian McFadin (Tenor Saxophone), Eddie Felix (Reeds), James King (Reeds), Todd M. Simon (Trumpet), Josef Leimberg (Trumpet), Mark Chung (Violin), Art Hirahara (Piano), Scott Ray (Trombone), Wadada Leo Smith (Trumpet)Quite simply one of the more impressive recording debuts. This was Adam’s first release in any manner: leader or sideman. His recording legacy began here and subsequent events have proved it was no fluke Bottoms OutScott Miller (Composer), Joe Fonda (Bass), Kevin Norton (Drums), Michael J. Stevens (Piano), Mark Whitecage (Alto Saxophone), David Bindman (Clarinet), David Schumacher (Baritone Saxophone), Robert DeBellis (Baritone Saxophone), Sam Furnace (Baritone Saxophone), Steve Swell (Trombone), Jim Leff (Trombone)Scott Miller and Joe Fonda brought together this potent ensemble, sort of a musicians’ workshop with, “A premise of the group that, in our music, there is an equal assertion of written composition and improvisation: The writing and the improvising are continuous and simultaneous throughout.” And “Though every member of Bottoms Out is a formidable soloist, the band is ultimately about a sense of ensemble.” The ensemble existed for a couple of years and was obviously an engaging unit, as witnessed by this sole issued document. 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. 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.
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)
