    A massive love letter to fans, this walloping twenty-seven disc boxed set is the kind of love that stares in your windows and goes through your trash. This version of King Crimson was one of it’s most revered with leader Robert Fripp on guitar and mellotron, John Wetton on bass and vocals, David Cross on violin and keyboards and Bill Bruford on drums and percussion. The box covers the band’s 1973-1974 tour of Europe from Scotland to Germany. Setlists were relatively similar night to night, with the staples being the fan favorites like the crushing “Easy Money” and “The Great…

    When Stan Kenton was asked where jazz was going next, he said, “Tomorrow night we’ll be in Detroit.” It is in the nature of creative music that the question cannot be answered. Still, it would be less than human for someone who takes jazz—or any important music—seriously, not to speculate. It is impossible to know […]

Yesterday morning at Hatch Hall in the Eastman School of Music, the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival announced its lineup for this year's festival, which will take place June 19-27. As usual it is a great smorgasbord of music, with a lot of new sounds that I'm looking forward to tasting during those 9 days in June. There are new venues and some other changes, plus the last of the headliners, Steve Gadd with a special guest (do you think it might be Chuck?). As the…

I have been using a separate service for my mobile readers for quite a while and will keep that until I'm happy with how mobile display is working. As I move things around and try out different design elements, 2 vs. 3 columns, font sizes, etc., I would love it if you would provide feedback on how you're seeing it out there.

It’s an ancient but durable pop classic done with great style by Rebecca Kilgore, Duke Heitger, trumpet; Dan Block, tenor saxophone; Dan Barrett, trombone; Rossano Sportiello, piano; Paul Keller, bass; Ed Metz, drums. This glowing performance took place on April 25, 2014, at the place where such things flourish — the Atlanta Jazz Party – which this year takes place from April 17 to April 19,…

    My title doesn’t refer to someone’s hallowed solo or a famous 78 recording.  No, it’s music created this month, March 2015. I have watched with pleasure and amusement the birth and development of a new band — no, a new instrumental ensemble with its own gravely whimsical music.  The object of my affection is the Endangered Species Trio, which brings together Emily Asher, trombone; Tom Abbott, bass saxophone; Rob Reich, accordion. I could make a case for all species as being endangered these days, but the title refers more to the three instruments, which have been the…

    For the moment, the usual media sources have tired of telling us that jazz is dead, but some anonymous blogger launches heavy satire that it is “the worst,” while another source reports that jazz is the least popular music on the planet.  I find it difficult to care about such blurts . . . because beautiful performances and many new discs prove those slighting words untrue. Today’s delight is drummer Ai Murakami’s CONCEPTION (Gut String Records) where she leads Zaid Nasser, alto saxophone; Tardo Hammer, piano; Hassan Shakur, string bass, through eight lyrically…

    Music and More

  • Atomic - Lucidity (Jazzland, 2015)

    28 Mar 2015 | 9:12 pm
    Atomic is a stalwart modern jazz band from Scandinavia featuring Havard Wiik on piano, Fredrik Ljungkvist on saxophone and clarinet, Magnus Broo on trumpet, Ingebrigt Haker-Flaten on bass and Hans Hulboekmo on drums, replacing Paal Nilssen-Love. The music is their trademark free-bop, beginning with “Laterna Interfult” which opens with a mysterious melody before diving into some more powerful improvised sections, where the music stutters and sways, and the horns weave and joust around each other. Ljungkvist breaks lose on saxophone, before stopping on a dime, moving the music back to a…
  • Book: The True Adventures of the Rolling Stones 30th Anniversary Edition by Stanley Booth (Chicago Review Press, 2014)

    26 Mar 2015 | 8:20 am
    Author Stanley Booth had an opportunity that a writer would never have has before or since, a chance to be part of the Rolling Stones as they toured the United States successfully in 1969 and then crashed and burned at the infamous Altamont Festival. Booth chronicles everything from the ever present drugs to groupies, managers and hangers on. He does stall the narrative on a few occasions to talk about his own problems of getting his book deal and advance, but for the most part stays on topic. He will juxtapose the narrative of the 1969 tour with vignettes of the Stones early tours, where…
  • Anat Cohen - Luminosa (Anzic Records, 2015)

    22 Mar 2015 | 1:50 pm
    Using Brazilian music as a jumping off point, multi-instrumentalist Anat Cohen plays a wide range of music on this balanced set of mainstream jazz. She is joined by Jason Lindner on keyboards, Joe Martin on bass, Daniel Freedman on drums, Romero Lubambo and Gilad Hekselman on guitar and percussionist Gilmar Gomes along with special guests. The album begins with “Lilia” which has a slow and patient opening, building to a mid-tempo clarinet solo that smears long slippery notes over piano, bass and drums. Joyful clapping percussion introduces “Putty Boy Strut” which wouldn’t sound out…
  • Jim Snidero - Main Street (Savant, 2015)

    21 Mar 2015 | 2:26 pm
    Jim Snidero is a veteran alto saxophonist and composer with several albums to his credit. On this album he leads a fine mainstream jazz band consisting of Fabian Almazan on piano, Linda Oh on bass and Rudy Royston on drums. Snidero tours widely, and that is relevant to this album as the song titles presents a travelogue of sorts. I grew up not far from there so “Post Time Saratoga” rings a bell, with a fast paced feeling evoking the famous racetrack and the strong swing of the song reflecting the excellent jazz scene of that area. “Duluth at Noon” leads of the album with a strong and…
  • King Crimson - Starless (Discipline Global Mobile, 2014)

    17 Mar 2015 | 1:39 pm
    A massive love letter to fans, this walloping twenty-seven disc boxed set is the kind of love that stares in your windows and goes through your trash. This version of King Crimson was one of it’s most revered with leader Robert Fripp on guitar and mellotron, John Wetton on bass and vocals, David Cross on violin and keyboards and Bill Bruford on drums and percussion. The box covers the band’s 1973-1974 tour of Europe from Scotland to Germany. Setlists were relatively similar night to night, with the staples being the fan favorites like the crushing “Easy Money” and “The Great…

  • The Pocket Herb- the genius of Herb Pomeroy

    31 Jan 2015 | 2:45 pm
    The teacher who had the biggest influence on me during my time at Berklee was Heb Pomeroy. I was quite fortunate to play in his Concert Jazz Orchestra for three years, as well as a few semesters in his Line-Writing band and his small combo. Herb was a true master composer, arranger, educator, improvisor and band leader. His influence of how modern Jazz harmony, composition and arranging can not be overstated. For instance, for many years the Altered Dominant scale was called the Pomeroy scale. Unfortunately I never took any of Herb's composition and arranging classes, which I have always…

    This past week, I interviewed TV and Broadway actress Victoria Clark for the "House Call" column in the Mansion section of The Wall Street Journal. Vicki is now appearing in Gigi at New York's Neil Simon Theatre. If you're a fan of Showtime's Homeland, Vicki also plays Carrie Mathison's mother. Carrie is played by Claire Danes. Vicki grew up in Dallas in the 1960s and was quite the tomboy by virtue of her older brothers, who toughened her up and made her fearless.

  • Jazz for Newbies: Vocalists

    Marc Myers
    26 Mar 2015 | 9:05 pm
    In my ongoing series that introduces jazz to those curious about the music but not quite sure where to start listening, I recently posted Part 1—a list of 10 jazz piano albums that were nifty entry points. All 10 are exceptional and easy to absorb for those with a beginner's ear.  In Part 2, the natural next step is to provide you with key recordings by pop and jazz vocalists. When I began listening to jazz in the early 1970s, I listened to the music on many of the following sets to develop an appreciation for basic song. Pop and jazz singers are fundamental to the learning curve…
  • Doug Raney: Phantom Guitarist

    Marc Myers
    25 Mar 2015 | 9:05 pm
    When talk turns to the finest guitarists of the post-war years, Jimmy Raney is often overlooked. Same goes for his son, Doug [above], who is virtually unknown here in the States. Jimmy Raney was born in Louisville, Ky., in 1927, and as a child listened to his mother play guitar in the 1930s. Raney studied with guitarist Hayden Causey, eventually replacing him in Jerry Wald's band, where he made his first recordings in 1944. In Chicago Raney worked with pianist Lou Levy and then joined Woody Herman in 1948.  After leaving Herman's orchestra in 1949, Raney [above] played with Al…

It happened in Miami last night. And the owner was in the house to listen as well.Mike and Jamie fooled around a bit before Nanami Orikawa got up to sing "I Love To Be Loved By You". She followed with a Latin rhythmed tune. It started as bolero & ended with a more lively beat. She did it beautifully albeit with an accented espanol. Mike and Jamie took alternate solos that impressed. Nanami's "scats" are well…

They are both entertainers who bring huge enthusiasm and experience to their craft, clearly enjoy working together, and are building a strong partnership. It's a great evening.

    José James - Yesterday I Had The Blues: The Music of Billie Holiday (Blue Note 00600406536204. CD Review by Peter Jones)With a string of genre-busting albums behind him, collaborations with everyone from Nicola Conte to Basement Jaxx, and a stellar performance at last year’s Love Supreme Festival, it seems José James can do no wrong. He has embraced hip-hop, rock and jazz. On early, groundbreaking tracks like Park Bench People (from his debut album The Dreamer), he staked out a piece of Gil Scott-Heron’s territory. Last year’s While You Were Sleeping featured both electric and…

Last September, I visited Emmanuel Baptist Church on Lafayette Avenue in Brooklyn to listen to the Eric Frazier-led sextet known as the Brooklyn Based Jazz Band, and Cromity was one of three singers who appeared with them. I was quickly won over by Cromity’s easy charm and sincerity, and these qualities are evident on this ten-song set that was recorded in June 2014. Many of the selections are associated…
