Lots of different New music this week being added to the Jazz 88 Music Library, including The Bad Plus (Jazz Live alums!) adding some electronics, new discs from pianists Cables and Mabern, progressive outings from McCaslin and Mazurek, and San Diego's own Danny Green's New One (interview soon?!), among others. Tune in to hear the debut of these on Jazz 88 on The New Jazz Thing with Vince Outlaw, Monday, October 1, 2012, 6-8 PM PT! Here's a little taste from The Bad Plus...
The complete list, descriptions, and videos after the split...
THE BAD PLUS – “MADE POSSIBLE” ~ Entertainment One
(Trio’s eighth studio album made up of eight collective originals plus a tribute
track to Paul Motion. An energetic release with layers of synth and electronic
drum sounds that accompany the trio’s acoustic palette; avant-garde populism)!
ANDREA BRACHFELD – “LADY OF THE ISLAND” ~ Zoho
(Flautist, often rooted in Latin jazz, offers up a new date of mostly straight-ahead
jazz tunes. All cuts address the three basic elements found in most Western
music: rhythm, melody, and harmony).
GEORGE CABLES – “MY MUSE” ~ High Note
(One of the most in-demand session pianists/composers leads a trio doing a mix
of originals and other jazz tunes. The album expresses a number of jazz elements
ranging from post-bop to gospel-tingled blues).
DENISE DONATELLI – “SOUL SHADOWS” ~ Savant
(Los Angeles-based and Grammy nominated vocalist reuniting with her Music
Director / arranger / accompanist Geoffrey Keezer for their latest collaboration.
She offers a program of spacious, un-hackneyed tunes by Peter Eldridge, Sting,
Pomplamoose and others with Keezer providing the interesting arrangements and
CHARLES GAYLE TRIO – “STREETS”CHARLES GAYLE TRIO – “STREETS” ~ Northern-Spy Records
(Blazing saxophonist leading an exhilarating free jazz trio. Title and cover photo
reflect on his own homeless days. This is a spiritual and heavy hitting session)!
