released album, the date consists of all original compositions and arrangements).

CHERYL BENTYNE – “LET’S MISBEHAVE” – {Summit}

creative home for more than 160 tenants associated with the pop-music industry.
The new release is an eleven-track collection featuring renditions of classic songs
that came out of the Brill Building.)

JON HAMAR – “HYMN” – {Origin}

trio format, Hamar explores the textural, dynamic and melodic possibilities of
unconventional instrumentation configuration. Mostly originals.

GRUPO LOS SANTOS – “CLAVE HEART” – {OA2}
(A unique collective quartet, creating a wide spectrum of sound and texture while
combining inspiration drawn from New York City’s jazz scene and traditional
folkloric music of the Americas. A dynamic set of all originals).

(Legendary vibraphonist and NEA Jazz Master with a live session recorded over
the course of two sold-out sets at Dizzy’s Coca-Cola in Jazz at Lincoln Center,

Bernstein and Byron Landham.

written by the two).

scene. After three years on the Berlin scene, this is his debut recording put
together with a local trio and the brilliant Vancouver clarinetist Francois Houle
guesting on two tracks. This is a diverse date that displays a range of grooves,
from stompin’, jazzed-up rock’n’roll to free improvisation. All originals).

WILLIAM PARKER ORCHESTRA – “ESSENCE OF ELLINGTON” – {AUM}
(Preeminent jazz composer/bassist with his latest manifestation of his orchestral
concepts in which he interprets selections from the Duke Ellington book. A
progressive large ensemble recording that was part of a worldwide concert debut

REGGIE QUINERLY – “MUSIC INSPIRED BY FREEDMAN TOWN”
(One of the busiest freelance drummers on the New York Jazz scene with his

slaves directly following the Civil War. The collection features a number of
involved musicians playing originals and a couple of standards.)
