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 ... 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.
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.
