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" ... 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. 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
