Big Brass is an appropiate name for the large ensemble arranged and conducted by Ernie Wilkins that accompanies the huge sound of Sonny Rollins. The energy within the leader's gospel-flavored shout "Grand Street" is considerable, while a swinging but no less powerful version of George & Ira Gershwin's "Who Cares" features a choice solo by guitarist Rene Thomas. Also added to this compilation are trio recordings with bassist Henry Grimes and drummer Specs Wright, including a brilliant leisurely stroll through "Manhattan," along with Rollins' tour de force unaccompanied tenor sax on "Body and Soul."

Let the rain come, drops of silent silver sorrow.” What a beautiful image, one of many in Leaving Traces, the second album from Sietske Roscam Abbing, a Dutch vocalist and lyricist who has studied in the United States and taught in India. What strikes you immediately about this album is its clarity. It’s not just about the recording quality (which is flawless), or the packaging (striking and beautiful), it’s the vision, the words and emotions expressed. Her enunciation is so perfect so you can savour the lyrics without having to resort to the insert for the words. The lyrics are poems in themselves, expressed with perfect phrasing, emotional depth and confidence.

This is not so much a jazz album as it is an intimate pairing of like-minded musicians performing as they might do for a few friends in their living room. Heather Keizur is a new name to me but she demonstrates skill and frankly, a lot of caring in the nine selections heard here. Interestingly, four of them are in French and she handles the language with ease, and often with passion. I was especially enamored with her version of the Jacques Brel tune “Ne Me Quitte Pas,” also known as “If You Go Away.”

Following two successful volumes of ‘Journey Into Deep Jazz’ on BBE, proprietor of London’s ‘IF Music’ record store and walking musical encyclopedia Jean-Claude kicks off a new “Introduction To…” album series with this affectionate retrospective of sister labels Black Saint and Soul Note. Cited by some as Italy’s answer to Blue Note, Black Saint and Soul Note have together amassed a catalogue in excess of five hundred albums between 1975 and 2008. Founded by Giacomo Pellicciotti (producer of Enrico Rava’s seminal “Katcharpari” album), Black Saint scored a home run with it’s very first release: Billy Harper’s 1975 “Black Saint” LP, the follow-up to his much lauded “Capra Black” album on Strata-East.

The spectacularly exceptional singer Esther Phillips performing a magical concert at Onkel Pö's Carnegie Hall, in 1978. The legendary Hamburg hot spot is once again turned into a seething cauldron of emotions. Phillips was rediscovered in the disco era: with "What a Difference a Day Makes", a song which had previously been an inherent part of the repertoire of Dinah Washington, an artist much admired by Esther. Of course, the song was also performed at Onkel Pö, just before the end of the concert. The concert, which was recorded by NDR and featured powerful accompanists and a highly enthusiastic audience - now documented on CD - showed her ability to completely enchant her audience.

One of Nat Adderley's finest albums. Sometimes the inclusion of tuba in a small-group modern jazz setting can produce whale-like results among a school of dolphin, but that's not the case here. Tuba man Laymon Jackson doesn't dominate or weigh down the proceedings, but merely gives them another texture. Nat is in fine form; I like his Miles mode on BLUE CONCEPT a lot. Tune selection for the date is also top rate: the two compositions by Duke Pearson (WHAT NEXT? and LITTLE MISS) are especially good. Nat Adderley fans and modern jazz lovers in general should like this ambitious CD very much.
