2011-08-01 The Latest Adds To The Jazz 88 Music Library
Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 Library Blog - New This WeekAuthor: Vince Outlaw Posted on: August 1, 2011
Here are the new add to the Jazz 88 Music Library for Monday, August 1, 2011, which will be debuted on the station on The New Jazz Thing with Vince Outlaw, Monday, August 1, 2011 6-8 PM PT!

AMIKAEYLA & TRELAWNY ROSE – “TO EVA, WITH LOVE” (@songbirdtribute, FB) (Female vocalists, with special guests, paying tribute to Eva Cassady.  Recorded live, with a somewhat folky feel, but jazzy enough on most tracks).

AllAboutJazz.com (C. Michael Bailey): So unique and fresh are these interpretations that their paying tribute to a singular talent is but the gravy in this recording. The two singers weave harmonic lines carefully managing the intended tension. Cassidy's show-stopping "Wonderful World" proves the same on this, one of the finest recordings of the year.

WENDELL HARRISON (FB , Free downloads from album!)– “IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME” (Saxophonist, in a funky, contemporary groove).




Sacramento Bee (Mark Stryker): "It's About Damn Time" finds Harrison in a populist mode, his gutsy tenor boogying on top of dance rhythms, vamps and electric bass and guitar. His solos have a homespun, sometimes quirky character, favoring visceral exhortations over technical fireworks and flashy harmony. The breezy melodies, grooves and circumscribed improvisations lack the experimental edge of Tribe, and Harrison says the music is pitched at younger fans who have recently discovered his vintage records or his work with Craig.

THE FALCONAIRES – “SHARING THE FREEDOM” ( Free Downloads!)(The United States Air Force Academy Band, swinging straight-ahead).


GEORGE LERNIS QUARTET (YouTube) – “SHAPES OF NATURE” (Drummer leading a quartet, doing all edgy, straight-ahead originals).

AllAboutJazz.com (Greg Simmons): Taking the liner notes at face value, Shapes of Nature is a master's thesis. These are well-sorted, truly original compositions that retain enough improvisational freedom to ensure that the participant's individual voices are well-represented. The opportunity to hear the direct results of a musician's academic studies—and to have them identified as such—is unusual, and in this case very successful.

MORTEN SCHANTZ TRIO (MySpace, FB) – “CONVEYANCE” (Piano trio, doing an interesting mix of jazz tunes, standards and new standards).


J.C. STYLLES (FB)– “EXHILARATION AND OTHER STORIES” @Motema (Guitar/organ trio, groovin’ straight ahead).

JC Stylles Finds His Exhilaration (free download there too!): The album was inspired after the trio had played a weekly residency for nearly 2 years in a Harlem Club, and I knew the communication level had reached a high enough point to be ready to capture.

MARK WINKLER (FB)– “SWEET SPOT” (Male vocalist, back by great musicians, doing straight-ahead standards and originals).

AllAboutJazz.com (C. Michael Bailey):
Perfect intonation or not, Winkler, like Caruso, possesses that most important vocal element for a singer—a distinctive voice. Winkler's sonics are less than perfect, his voice too refined to contain grit, possessing a rasp that makes it unique—and, more importantly, identifiable. Add this to his keen arranger's ear and Winkler turns a standard like "But Not for Me" on its ear.

Here are the new adds to the Jazz 88 Music Library for Monday, July 25, 2011 and will be debuted on The New Jazz Thing with Vince Outlaw, 6-8 PM PT, Monday, July 25, 2011.

FRED FRIED AND CORE – “ENCORE” (Acoustic guitarist, leading a trio, doing all
straight-ahead originals).

Jazz Sensibilities: “Leanne’s Number” is today’s focus. Beginning with the clear tones of two beautifully voiced chords, then Matsuki enters with a light straight eight figure, followed by Lavoie holding down double stops to add to the suspense. The tension is released by a fast unison figure that falls into the next statement. Fried masterfully develops the motif through this section, with ever evolving harmony and a play on notes, the listener flows through various feel changes and then the form is repeated. However, Fried surprises us with a flawless transition into a mid-up swing at the end of the form for the solos.

MONTY ALEXANDER – “HARLEM-KINGSTON EXPRESS-LIVE!” (Monty paying
homage to his Jamaican roots, with a wide variety of songs).

TERI LYNNE CARRINGTON – “THE MOSAIC PROJECT” (A vocal album, featuring
a variety of female vocalists, with an extremely varied choice of material).
The Guardian (John Fordham)Anyone who caught American drummer Terri Lyne Carrington's performance at the recent Barbican show featuring Dianne Reeves, Angelique Kidjo and Lizz Wright will want to check out this star-packed session.   Parlato's diametrically different and resonantly intimate accounts of I Got Lost in His Arms and the Beatles' Michelle follow. 

ETIENNE CHARLES – “KAISO” (Mostly straight-ahead session from this trumpeter,
with small group, orchestral and vocal tracks).

JOHN DAVERSA – “JUNK WAGON: THE BIG BAND ALBUM” (Very progressive
big band session, with strong use of electronics).

ELLEN KAYE – “3AM-THE DOGS, THE MILKMAN & ME” (Female vocalist, with a
distinct mix of old and new standards).

CHUCK REDD – “THE COMMON THREAD” (Vibist, leading a straight-ahead session,
doing mostly jazz tunes and standards).

SCENES – “SILENT PHOTOGRAPHER” (Edgy guitar trio, doing mostly originals, with
a few jazz tunes).

THE YOUNG LIZARDS – “OUR MODERN LIFESTYLE” (Sax/organ quartet, doing
mostly jazz tunes, with a couple of originals).

Irritating little impediments to ME becoming famous:(VO: OK, this blog writer needs a bit more exposure!)

Did I say “ME”?…..I meant “us”…because there is no “me” in “famous”;)  So we are working on the production end of a new CD, meaning the tracks are selected, EQ’d and mixed and now it’s just all that other stuff like artwork, liner notes, etc. All the stuff that I hate to do and aren’t much good at such as:

The latest additions to the Jazz 88 Music Library and debuted this Monday, July 11, 2011 on The New Jazz Thing with Vince Outlaw!

JAY ASHBY  / STEVE DAVIS – “MISTAKEN IDENTITY” (Two trombonists
collaborating on a straight-ahead session).

Innovative Entertainment Solutions: A New York Yankees fan and a Boston Red Sox fan make an odd couple on the bandstand. How do you get them to play nicely with others and how do you deal with the issue of two virtuoso jazz trombonists who are often mistaken for each other, even causing fellow jazz musicians to do the occasional double take? The answer to this little dilemma might find Jay Ashby and Steve Davis collaborating in a musical setting where one would be for the other, or one for all. That’s what you’ll hear on this CD, where orchestral tone, effortless three octave range, and gorgeous legato lines with saxophone-like speed are the standard on this most difficult of instruments. As an example, check out the stablemates on the smoking tootin’ for Toots. These two musicians have advanced the jazz trombone far into the 21st Century.
