ForwardBrian Landrus (Saxophone), George Garzone (Saxophone), Allan Chase (Saxophone), Jason Palmer (Trumpet), Michael Cain (Piano), John Lockwood (Bass), Rakalam Bob Moses (Drums), Rupac Mantilla (Percussion)There's a new baritone sax voice in town–Brian Landrus, who impresses also on bass clarinet, alto flute, and as a composer of the majority of this program's compositions. Joining him are a few veterans including George Garzone, John Lockwood, Allan Chase, and Bob Moses; each known not only by his past body of work but also for the select company each chooses to keep. BuffaloAdam Lane (Bass), Vinny Golia (Tenor Saxophone), Paul Smoker (Trumpet), Vijay Anderson (Drums)In February 2005, Adam Lane's Trio recorded two releases for the CIMP label (#s 325 and 335), collectively and individually still considered to be among the participants' finest work.
After those CIMP sessions, the trio concluded its tour with a performance in Buffalo, NY. At that time they were joined by Paul Smoker and here are the results. It doesn't get better than this. 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. GenesisMat Marucci (Drums), Markus Burger (Piano), John Tchicai (Tenor Saxophone), Doug Webb (Tenor Saxophone), Adam Lane (Bass), Steve Gundhi (Alto Saxophone), Tony Passarell (Baritone Saxophone), Steve Roach (Trumpet), John Allen (Percussion), Fred Randolph (Bass)Mat Marucci and Markus Burger began collaborating in 2002. Their concepts are wide and full as this varied, but whole, work proves. Solid playing and complete compositions manage to make the 11 parts of the CD hang together as a satisfying complete suite. Duocity in Brass and WoodPaul Smoker (Trumpet), Dominc Duval (Double Bass), Ed Schuller (Double Bass)Paul Smoker is a creative improvising trumpeter without compare. Passionate, humorous, and quirky, he is a trumpeter‚Äôs trumpeter. This specially-priced 2 CD set simply pairs him in live duo settings with 2 different bassists: Ed Schuller and Dominic Duval. That should just about convince any fan of creative improvising music of its value, and this is a real value. 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. Full Throttle OrchestraVijay Anderson (Drums), Aaron Bennett (Tenor Saxophones), Myles Boisen (Electric Guitar), Jeff Chan (Tenor Saxophone), John Finkbeiner (Electric Guitar), Darren Johnston (Trumpet), Adam Lane (Bass)This is the follow-up to Adam’s amazing recording debut on Cadence Jazz 1104, Hollywood Wedding. Today many have come to expect brilliance from Mr. Lane, but, after listening to the first two Cadence recordings, obviously it was all in place by the end of the 1990s. And Now I Can See Crows Mating in the MistPam Purvis (Voice), Wilber Morris (Acoustic Bass), Denis Charles (Drums), Bob Ackerman (Flute), Herb Robertson (Trumpet)The group here was a joining of musical artists who often got together “at home” to woodshed, work out musical ideas, and play for their own pleasure. Both the late Wilber Morris and Denis Charles had the spirit of giving and music that encouraged such gatherings. In putting together this informal approach in the more formal setting for recording, Bob Ackerman invited his friend Herb Robertson (who was in town) to join “The Quartet.” Herb did and here are the results. Liner notes from Mr. Ackerman and Ms. Purvis relate the background and circumstances of the gatherings. 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. 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 Suite EmpathyWilber Morris (Double Bass), Ehran Elisha (Drums), Roy Campbell (Trumpet)Ehran Elisha keeps his group together for years but remains elusive “on the scene.” He works big ideas in his music and isn’t afraid to go out all the time, admirably making the whole greater than the sum of its parts. This music, though just a powerful trio, is both driving and orchestral and impressed us so much we did a number of recordings with his groups for CIMP.
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. 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)
