|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
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).
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:

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.
