Eric Dolphy: Gone In The Air

Eric Dolphy: Gone In The Air

BY MARK WERLIN
June 20, 2018

Newly-remastered SACD reissues of Eric Dolphy's albums for the Prestige label mark the 90th anniversary of his birth. The recording sessions that Eric Dolphy led in the last four years of his life advanced the evolution of jazz. It was a tragedy that Eric Dolphy gave himself so completely and unselfishly to art that he neglected to attend to the mundane demands of bodily health. The impact of his death on June 29, 1964 at age 36 ......

June 20, 2018

Speak Low (Enja Records, 2017), the debut release of her current Trio of the same name, catapulted Lucia Cadotsch among the new artists that promise to write original chapters of vocal jazz while showing deference to the artists that preceded them. Playing a compelling brand of music that has been aptly described as “acoustic retrofuturism" --think of it as the musical version of Blade Runner's stunning blend of futuristic ambience and vintage elegance --Lucia Cadotsch, bassist Petter Eldh and saxophonist ......

Organist Jocelyn Michelle's newest CD, Live At Viva Cantina (Chicken Coup Records, June 8, 2018), is a toe tapping, festive project of serious music that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Although she’s lived on the Big Island of Hawaii for several years, she decided to record this CD back in Los Angeles, her old stomping ground, where she and her husband, guitarist John Rack, lived and worked for many years. Viva Cantina is a Mexican restaurant and music performance venue ......

Expressive Vocalist Gary Brumburgh Releases "Moonlight" On Cafe Pacific Records

BY HOLLY COOPER
June 20, 2018

For vocalist Gary Brumburgh, the lyrics of a song are like dialogue from a play, and when he sings, he approaches the material much like an actor prepares for a role. The lyrics, along with the music, suggest to him a scene and a persona with distinct emotions and motivation. This technique allows him to pour himself into a song, creating a highly personalized interpretation of the lyrics. Thinking like an actor comes naturally to Brumburgh, who has a long ......

Andreas Varady: Guitar Wizard On The Rise

BY R.J. DELUKE
June 18, 2018

Listening to Andreas Varady play guitar, it's difficult to guess his age. Its not just the fleet fingers across the fret board, the subtle bending of notes and the dexterity. Many young players display those features. He possesses a warm tone, a mature style with free-flowing ideas that go to interesting places. His style is mature and he's a teller of stories. Mature and strong enough to impress Quincy Jones, who brought the guitarist into his management company ......

The Bach's Beach Vision Of Jazz Heaven

The Bach's Beach Vision Of Jazz Heaven

BY ARTHUR R GEORGE
June 17, 2018

Heaven for some is a baseball diamond in an Iowa cornfield. For Pete Douglas, it was a house on a beach with a jazz club in his living room, a would-be heaven also for anyone who dropped in. Douglas passed on, in 2014 at age 85, sitting at his desk overlooking the Pacific Ocean. But his vision lingers at the Bach Dancing & Dynamite Society, aka the Douglas Beach House, at Miramar Beach on Half Moon Bay in Northern California ......

Soon after The Embers opened in New York City in late 1951, Joe Bushkin and His Quartet spent 16 memorable weeks there. With Milt Hinton and Jo Jones, Bushkin was joined by Buck Clayton on trumpet. Astoundingly, Art Tatum had a solo piano gig there at the same time. Bushkin and Tatum listened to each other every night. The crowd was as distinguished as the players. Louis Armstrong sat in with Bushkin, and Vladimir Horowitz was in the house one ......
