Michael Feinstein: Errands and Rhythm Galore

BY ROB WOOD
September 21, 2018

"If you could have dinner with anyone from history, who would you choose?" That's a game many of us played as we imagined chatting up apostles, prophets, and heroes from the past. With Michael Feinstein, it's not a game. He's done it. He, more than anyone else, is the jazz Boswell: observer and companion to the likes of George Shearing, Rosemary Clooney, Frank Sinatra, Andre Previn, Ira Gershwin, Johnny Green, and many more who wrote or interpreted great ......

Available on November 16, 2018 from Origin Records CD Release Celebration: Nov. 17 @ Scullers, jny: Boston, MA For several years now vibraphonist/composer/bandleader Joe Locke has had two musical purposes: one, to speak in a vernacular which reaches people, and two, to continue challenging himself as a player, writer and arranger. In 2013 Locke released Lay Down My Heart (Blues & Ballads, Vol. 1), which dealt with the first directive. Then in 2015 he completed the astounding Love ......

Detroit Jazz Festival 2018

September 19, 2018

Detroit Jazz Festival Downtown Detroit Detroit, Michigan August 31-September 3, 2018 Over the course of its 39 year history, the largest free jazz festival in North America has seen its shares of up and downs. It once swelled to a five-day event starting on the Thursday evening before Labor Day and there was even a time when names such as Chaka Khan and Nancy Wilson rubbed noses with more mainstream sensibilities. There were even moments ......

Rising Stars: Wondrous Woman

BY JEFF FITZGERALD, GENIUS
September 18, 2018

For those of you who may not be aware, Your Own Personal Genius was once a fresh-faced music major at Mars Hill University in North Carolina. My principal instrument was euphonium (I also had a minor in trombone). Later, I left to study Jazz with Ellis Marsalis during his residency at Virginia Commonwealth University. As a double-threat Classical euphoniumnist/Jazz trombonist, I discovered two things early on: 1) There was virtually no demand for my talents, which is why I ended ......

Beethoven, Barber and Vivaldi The Jazz Corner Hiltonhead Island, SC September 9, 2018 For half a year, this writer has been working with Mrs Lois Masteller, owner of the Jazz Corner on Hilton Head Island SC, and Noel Freidline searching out a way to present classical music fully integrated with jazz inflections. That's not an easy aspiration to fulfill: the history of crossover collaborations has been uncomfortable. Symphony orchestras have invited jazz ......

Monique Debose Will Release The Sovereign One On September 27

BY CARY GOLDBERG
September 18, 2018

Monique De Bose has never been one to shy away from life’s challenges. The Sovereign One, which drops on September 27, encapsulates a wealth of experience into seven songs in which the LA-based songwriter and vocalist offers up messages that are both personal and universal, messages of acceptance, of empowerment and of pride. The journey to this time and place—emotionally and stylistically—has been a rather circuitous one. The daughter of a mixed-race couple, Monique realized at a very early age ......

Bryan Ferry at the Macedonian Philharmonic Hall, Macedonia 2018

September 16, 2018

Bryan Ferry Macedonian Philharmonic Hall Skopje, Macedonia September 9, 2018 Everything about Bryan Ferry's grand performance at the Macedonian Philharmonic Hall seemed to revolve around style and presentation. The Philharmonic Hall was dimly lit and filled with smoke, effects trying to achieve a certain after-hours intimacy. Ferry's backup singers and the very able saxophonist and keyboard player Jorja Chalmers seemed to have just stepped out of a fashion magazine. Backed by this very able band ......

Dinosaur Hare & Hounds June 14, 2018 Tonite, for one nite only, this is the band called Dinoseb, or perhaps Polarsaur. For some mysterious reason, Dinosaur's regular sticksman Corrie Dick went missing, to be guest-starred by Seb Rochford, most famed for his own combo, Polar Bear. Even more shocking was the manifestation of this supreme fill-in drummer in his shiny-domed state, now completely hairless after decades of boasting the biggest bush in Britain (at ......

Maria Muldaur Readies 41st Album: "Don't You Feel My Leg - The Naughty Bawdy Blues Of Blue Lu Barker" Out September 28th

BY LISA BEST
September 16, 2018

When a 24-year-old Blue Lu Barker stepped up to the microphone at Decca Records studio in Manhattan in 1938 to record Don’t You Feel My Leg, she had no way of knowing that that initial recording would turn out to be such an enduring piece of blues artistry. An immediate hit, the song instantly established Barker as a leading female blues vocalist, fueling a recording career that continued unabated throughout dozens of blues and jazz releases on Decca, Apollo, and ......

BY CHRIS MAY

Binker & Moses Jazz Cafe London September 12, 2018 Binker & Moses began life around five years ago, when saxophonist Binker Golding and drummer Moses Boyd started playing ferocious, free-association duets during pre-performance sound checks as members of Zara McFarlane's band. Both musicians still tour and record with the singer, in fact Boyd co-produced McFarlane's 2017 blinder, Arise (Brownswood), but since 2015 they have also released three sublime albums under their own ......

BY TERRI HINTE
September 13, 2018

Anne Sajdera’s remarkable acumen as both a pianist and a composer finds rejuvenation on New Year, set for November 2 release on her own Bijuri Records. The album hits close to home for Sajdera—her ancestral home, that is, of the Czech Republic and its storied capital, Prague.

While in Prague, however, she encountered trumpeter/flugelhornist Miroslav Hloucal and alto ......
