In 2009 Steve Morse joined forces yet again with Dave LaRue (Bass) and Van Romaine (Drums) for a new Steve Morse Band album. The result is an album as multifaceted as Morse`s career. "Out Standing In Their Field" is the 12th Steve Morse Band record. It combines Rock, Country, Jazz, Funk and Classic elements and reaches an unbelievable sound spectrum. The entirely instrumental album clearly reflects the remarkable talent of Steve Morse and distinguishes the influences of the artist`s musical history. On top of the fantastic 10 brand new songs, there is a special bonus track: the live recording of "Rising Power" mirrors the unique goosebumps feeling you get when attending a live concert. On the strength of Steve Morse`s fascinating guitar riffs, there is no space of thinking of lead vocals are missing.

Ahmed – the quartet of Pat Thomas (piano), Antonin Gerbal (drums), Joel Grip (bass) and Seymour Wright (alto saxophone) – make music of heavy rhythm, repetition and syncopation set deep into an understanding of jazz and the obscure depths of its history. Across the 2 LPs which make up ‘Super Majnoon [East Meets West]’ the group work and rework the music of the late musician Ahmed Abdul-Malik to create a stamping, swinging, relentlessly propulsive record where profundity and physicality root right back to ecstatic feeling.

This live CD captured a quite strong performance by the Dregs. You'll get straight rock and roll, country, fusion,some blues, and more… all performed incredibly tight by the band. In my opinion, The Dregs were one of the best ensembles out there, specially Guitar virtuoso Steve Morse, who can play any style in top form. He masters the instrument in an awesome way; even Steve Howe of Yes has expressed his admiration for his wide vocabulary, technique and feeling. Highly recommended.

Just over 50 years have passed since 22-year-old Mary Stallings established herself as the finest new voice in jazz with the release of Cal Tjader Plays, Mary Stallings Sings. Since then, Stallings has released fewer albums than the average person has fingers, the earliest dating to 1990. Tempting as it is to ruminate over what could have been, it’s better to celebrate the fact that she has been steadily active throughout the past two decades and remains, at 72, the consummate jazz singer.

Their best up to this point. I'm Freaking Out is the top composition they ever did. New keyboardist T Lavitz really shines on that one, as well as Morgenstein. The Great Spectacular is a re-recording of a song from their pre-label release of the same name, and it features one of Morse's best solos ever laid to wax. Both of the Dregs album standards, the classical piece and the country tune have strong representatives on here as well. They thought enough of Road Expense to open their first live album years later. Not a down track on here.

Eher aus Lust und Laune hatten die beiden Vollblut-Blueser Gregor Hilden und Richie Arndt im Jahre 2017 beschlossen, ein rein akustisches Album mit Neubearbeitungen von ihren persönlichen Song-Highlights der jüngeren Blues- Soul- und Rockgeschichte einzuspielen. Die Reaktionen waren enorm, und so liegt es nun auf der Hand, dass eine Fortsetzung mit elektrischen Zutaten und einer kompletten Bandbesetzung folgen soll!

These Parisian café tunes bring out the best in this stellar jazz singer, particularly on the opening title track. Accompanied by accordion, which introduces the song, Dee Dee Bridgewater takes you from Paris down to the French Riviera with a warm, slightly island sound as she sings en français. And she has no problem creating her soothing jazz pipes regardless of language. It's as if she's been influenced by the greats but also by the late Henry Mancini in terms of some of the arrangements. A cover of "La Mer (Beyond the Sea)" is a faster, up-tempo approach far different than the swinging version by Bobby Darin.

Tragic genius who reinvented the electric bass guitar, playing complex, long lines and amazing solos at remarkable speeds.
Jaco Pastorius was a meteor who blazed on to the scene in the 1970s, only to flame out tragically in the 1980s. With a brilliantly fleet technique and fertile melodic imagination, Pastorius made his fretless electric bass leap out from the depths of the rhythm section into the front line with fluid machine-gun-like passages that demanded attention. He also sported a strutting, dancing, flamboyant performing style and posed a further triple-threat as a talented composer, arranger and producer. He and Stanley Clarke were the towering influences on their instrument in the 1970s…

Beaux J Poo Boo is a quartet featuring four veteran musicians (pianist Shelly Berg, guitarist Fred Hamilton, bassist Lou Fischer, and drummer Steve Haughton) who are also well known for their contributions to jazz education. The diverse background that each player brings to the date is reflected in his performance, especially in the funky, gospel-inflected cut (penned by Les McCann) that inspired the group's unusual name. The opening blues, "Ferris Wheel" (written by Rick Margitza, a saxophonist deserving of wider recognition), is a real cooker featuring effective solos by Berg, Fischer, and Hamilton. "Tooth," Berg's touching waltz-time salute to the late Frank Mantooth, is a gorgeous waltz that has an undercurrent of anguish. Hamilton's "Dancing with Monk" is a hard bop cooker that ignites the band. They also deliver with a slowly savored interpretation of Benny Carter's "Only Trust Your Heart" (featuring Fischer's warm arco bass). ~ AllMusic Review by Ken Dryden

“We all listen to what’s happening moment to moment and try to contribute a part that no one else would think of. When we open it up, it’s like, whoa. It might not be obvious to listeners where the top or the bridge of the tune is. But we always come back.” – Peter Schimke, How Birds Work (Mpls-St Paul Magazine)

The 1997 release Full Circle from altoist Sherman Irby is mostly quite relaxed, with the majority of the selections being taken at slower tempos. Even John Coltrane's "Giant Steps" is interpreted as a relaxed waltz. Irby has a warm and soulful sound on alto while being quite skillful at improvising over complex chord changes. A change of pace on this generally introspective set takes place on "Wee," an up-tempo bebop jam with Charlie Persip taking Dana Murray's place on drums. Otherwise, Irby is joined by Murray, the fine piano soloist James Hurt, and bassist Eric Revis throughout a thought-provoking program of originals. ~ AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

Modal, Post-Bop, Bop | Country: USA | Label: Columbia - CK078826

For his third and final Columbia CD, young trumpeter Marlon Jordan (21 at the time) still sounded pretty derivative of inspiration Wynton Marsalis and Miles Davis. His hard bop quintet (which also includes tenor saxophonist Tim Warfield, the brilliant pianist Eric Reed, bassist Tarus Mateen and drummer Troy Davis) is heard performing six of the trumpeter's originals, plus John Coltrane's "Village Blues," with spirit and swing, although not many original ideas. Jordan was one of the youngest of the Young Lions but, even in the late 1990s, he has still plenty of unrealized potential. A good but not essential outing. ~ AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

Amazing and unique private soul/jazz-funk fusion LP, “New York To L.A.: Coasting” is the first release (1980) on Andrew Scott Potter and David Eric Tillman’s PO/ET label. Sublime from the beginning to the end, it has become, just like their second and final release “…Space…Rapture…”, a sought-after collector’s item.
