Part of this is that I don't have the time, the eyes, or at the moment even the equipment. I never request DVDs. Album), some publicists insist on sending them anyway. Here's a list. They're all pending, and will probably remain that way until hell freezes over. But, at the end of the day, with a collection of songs near-Jungian in their familiarity, and terrific charts from DeSare and trumpeter Steve Guttman, it's Carlton's visceral tone and ability to get to the heart of each song in an unfailingly personal way that make this song set, at just under forty minutes, a thoroughly appealing look back, for those who miss the days when The Sound of Philadelphia ruled the airwaves.
As much as Album) fits more in the adult contemporary category than jazz, Carlton peppers the session with plenty of markers that make clear his jazz roots remain an undercurrent beneath everything to which he sets his mind. It may not be edgy or forward-thinking, but it grooves to its sources with plenty of booty-shaking soul, all the while providing the ever-tasteful Carlton with plenty of room to deliver.
And deliver he does, from start to finish. Labels: CD Review. Upcoming New Jazz Releases - March 22, jazz. New album in stores March Contact - completely produced, arranged and co-written by James - is driven by the signature soulful grooves the world has come to expect from him, but with an added intensity.
Six years after it sounded to all those presents in Brugges' Concertgebouw. One is a mix of Boeren's and Coleman's writingsbut distintcively with a clear European approach. The music is energetic, sometimes even quite abstract, with lots of swing. Intentionally playful and, when decisions have to be made, always with a"stream-of-consciousness".
Note their tricky counterpoints. Boeren and Moore may be acting in the place of Don Cherry and Ornette, but in no way this is a mere copy of things previously done by both masters: they're not followers, but heirs of a particular understandement of music. Otherwise, Delbecq is a fine pianist — I recommend his album, Phonetics, but you get a taste of that here.
Lawnmower — West CF The label really seems to like group names, something Moon Inhabitants - Eric Boeren 4tet - Song For Tracy The Turtle: Live At Jazz Brugge 2004 (CD try to minimize in my filing: most seem like fronts for some principal, and even when group distribution is genuine so many group names become difficult to follow.
I originally tried filing this under drummer Luther Gray: he produced and wrote the very brief liner notes. Of course, the person you hear is alto saxophonist Jim Hobbs, who is always out front. Some bits of Americana worked into the mix, Album) it a bit of folk-gospel roots, but recast as free jazz, of course.
Assembled from three concerts — the one patch of applause comes at a bit of surprise, even if well earned. Still, Schriefl is a smoldering trumpet player, and this never settles into the ordinary. A bunch more good jazz or whatevah records Back to the Clean Feed stack…. On tuba, Sergio Carolino is an agile soloist; at times, listening to his rides is an experience akin to watching a portly man doing handsprings and cartwheels.
A stunning surprise. All but two compositions are by him, the opening and the closing tunes by, respectively, Linkous and Mompou. Some of the music was conceived for cinema and theatre, a specialization of this great artist. Difficult to remain confined in the ambit of critical Album) when listening to the emotion-eliciting records that the Portuguese pianist delivers with impressive regularity.
Emaciated linearity, melodic unambiguousness, memories now fading, now perfectly clear. A world of forgotten glories and smiling sadness, in which one breathes slowly while watching life unfold without a clue on how to change it.
An indispensable interior geometry bathed in uniquely sober romanticism, never transcending to mellifluousness.
