Kareem Kandi – saxophones, Delvon Lamarr – organ, Jacques Willis and Adam Kessler – drums, Rob Hutchinson – bass with Julian Mcdonough 

”If you want a true jazz experience go hear Kareem Kandi. Just sit back and transport yourself to any jazz club in the world where you imagine you want to be and Kareem will take you there because he is a classic jazz musician.” –Northwest Jazz Profile

 

 

 

 

 

Circuit Rider: Ron Miles, Bill Frisell, & Brian Blade

Circuit Rider

Ron Miles, Bill Frisell, & Brian Blade

“Ron Miles, a discreetly insurgent musician, is back with a little help from some notable friends. Following up on the well-received live souvenir Quiver, the Denver cornetist reconvenes his trio for the studio successor, Circuit Rider. This, of course, is no ordinary trio; joining Miles again are “guitar-god” Bill Frisell and “drum-god” Brian Blade, perfect companions for a leader who only uses jazz as a starting point for his music, but typically ends up in a place not easily classifiable. It oddly feels comfortable, anyway….In leading this group of tonal and melodic masters, Ron Miles once again makes music ideal for those who savor those things served up in with angularity and superb group dynamics” –Something Else Reviews

The Great Lakes Suites: Wadada Leo Smith (2 CDs)

The Great Lakes Suites

Wadada Leo Smith 

The Great Lakes Suites finds trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith collaborating with drum vet Jack DeJohnette, saxophonist Henry Threadgill, and bassist John Lindberg on these reflective compositions. Dedicating each track to an individual lake, Smith creates thoughtful, organic pieces that amply highlight each musician’s skills. “This is perfectly balanced music with heavy input between four improvising and interpretive masters – no one dominates but each one consistently soars,” says AllAboutJazz.com. “If you’re new to Smith’s music, The Great Lakes Suites is a perfect place to start.”

Map to the Treasure: Reimagining Laura Nyro

Map to the Treasure

Reimagining Laura Nyro

The critically acclaimed and Grammy-nominated Map to the Treasure finds award-winning composer/arranger/pianist Childs collaborating with modern greats such as Renee Fleming, Yo-Yo Ma, Esperanza Spalding, Wayne Shorter, Alison Krauss, and more. Celebrating the songs of the darkly influential Laura Nyro, this album is more than just a collection of covers; it is a fully realized, beautifully orchestrated program that pays homage to the singer-songwriter who inspired countless artists.

Heritage: Lionel Loueke

Heritage

Lionel Loueke

“Lionel Loueke’s Heritage deftly intertwines modern jazz constructs with traditional African themes in a highly personal exploration of these two cultural streams which define Loueke’s upbringing and musical identity. The result is a gracious, elevating and welcoming sound that still challenges preconceived notions.” –All About Jazz

The Thought of You: Otis Brown III

The Thought of You  

Otis Brown III

After working alongside the likes of Terence Blanchard, Esperanza Spalding, and Joe Lovano, drummer Otis Brown III releases his first LP on Blue Note Records. At the helm of his core band are the bright lights of pianist Robert Glasper, trumpeter Keyon Harrold, saxophonist John Ellis, and bassist Ben Williams. Featuring guests ranging from organist Shedrick Mitchell, guitarist Nir Felder, and vocalists Gretchen Parlato and Nikki Ross, The Thought of You is a testament to an exemplary new generation of musicians. “Otis has become one of those drummers who once you hear him play, his experience becomes your experience in the moment,” says co-producer and bassist Derrick Hodge.

Nostalgia: Annie Lennox

Nostalgia  

Annie Lennox

The Scottish songstress and former Eurythmics front woman draws from the Great American Songbook for her first album in four years. Apropos of the record’s title, songs such as “Georgia on My Mind,” “I Put a Spell on You,” and “Strange Fruit” elicit the magic of yesteryear, without being over-sentimental. Lennox’s inimitable vocals breathe new life into these classics, creating an enjoyable record for any listener.

Hamburg ’72: Keith Jarrett, Charlie Haden & Paul Motian

Hamburg ’72  

Keith Jarrett, Charlie Haden & Paul Motian

The Munich-based ECM label is respected for its vast and sophisticated jazz and classical catalogue, but there is no doubt that Keith Jarrett’s work has been its bread and butter over the years. This fascinating trip to the archives reveals an eclectic live recording from an NDR Jazz Workshop radio session on June 14, 1972. In this all-star trio, Jarrett plays piano, flute, percussion, and alto sax, in spirited interactions with the legendary Paul Motian on drums, and the great Charlie Haden. At just under an hour of track time, Hamburg ’72 is a straight-up jazz treasure.

The Cool World: Dizzy Gillespie

The Cool World

Dizzy Gillespie, James Moody and Kenny Baron

The consummate cool and fiery jazz soundtrack to the dark, disturbing Shirley Clark film. As the only film (to that date) to be filmed exclusively in Harlem, The Cool World, with Mal Waldron’s brilliant soundtrack, conveyed the dangerous urgency of Black, inner-city life in the tumultuous mid-sixties. With Dizzy Gillespie, James Moody, and Kenny Baron all playing at the peak of their significant careers, this recording has become an essential document of its time.

The Man: Blues Union

John Carswell, Jud Sherwood, Josh Cook

Featured at Second Sunday at The Library, January 2015

“Blues Union is a soulful groove machine led by B-3 organist and blues vocalist John Carswell.  It’s Carswell’s incredible blues vocals that set him apart from those who claim to play the blues. He loves the good times and he loves to make you smile doing what he does best.” – (Rockfish Grill, Anacortes)

Identities are Changeable: Miguel Zenon

Identities are Changeable: Miguel Zenon

Puertorican, Alto saxophonist and composer – Miguel Zenon

Miguel Zenon won both a MacArthur Award and a Guggenheim Award in 2008, and has reaffirmed his genius year after year with brilliant concepts and jaw-dropping execution. This album concentrates on the national identity experience of the 1.2 million New Yorkers of Puerto Rican descent, through “dynamic, challenging, and intensely polyrhythmic” (Jazz Times), music that is (less-than-successfully) interspersed with previously recorded, spoken interviews with Puerto Rican New Yorkers. This is an engaging mid-career document by one of the most important jazz artists of his generation. – John Gilbreath

Perpetual Motion: a Celebration of Moondog

Perpetual Motion: a Celebration of Moondog

Led by the twin saxophones of Sylvain Rifflet and Jon Irabagon

Recorded LIVE at the thirtieth Banlieues Bleues Festival in 2013

About Moondog – “His influence snaked its way into jazz and minimalism during his lifetime, but 15 years after his death, Moondog’s legacy is probably more widely appreciated than it was when he was alive. His inventive sense of rhythm, playful counterpoint and instrumental onomatopoeia offer other musicians a lot to chew on. Led by the twin saxophones of Sylvain Rifflet and Jon Irabagon, musicians whose own sense of humor and irreverence makes them a fine match for Moondog’s oddball music, the band plays its way across the spectrum of the composer’s pieces, touching on concise rhythmic experiments and sprawling explorations of texture alike” (DownBeat).

Melody Lingers On: Houston Person

“Here’s veteran reedman Houston Person rolling in the deep again, his tone resonant as ever, his primary focus the Great American Songbook and its enduring lyricism. Unmistakably in his element, relaxed and yet fully engaged, the tenor saxophonist is clearly inspired not only by the stream of mostly classic melodies that comprise this collection, but also by the close kinship of vibraphonist Steve nelson, pianist Lafayette Harris Jr., bassist Ray Drummond and drummer Lewis Nash” (JazzTimes).

The accomplished pianist Kenny Werner, also respected for his remarkable performance-technique book, “Effortless Mastery,” has assembled a truly international Coalition of remarkable musicians. Beninese guitarist Lionel Loueke, Puerto Rican alto saxophonist Miguel Zenón, Danish saxophonist Benjamin Koppel, and Hungarian drummer Feren Nemeth, come together to provide, as JazzTimes notes, “the latest evidence that there is no typical Kenny Werner project. The pianist-composer-improviser keeps veering forward in directions that challenge his listeners and himself.” As, many would assert, Jazz should.  – John Gilbreath

This spirited piano-less quartet is both seasoned and fresh on this second release, invoking the past and future with equal spunk and virtuosity. As Down Beat magazine said, “this New York Quartet continues to invoke its moniker – although new drummer Anthony Pinciotti, who replaces Vinnie Sperrazza here, brings a heightened tension and increased volume – delving into deeply interactive improvisation that doesn’t need to shout to be heard.” – John Gilbreath

In My Solitude: Live at Grace Cathedral

Branford Marsalis

San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral has hosted many legendary jazz performances, including Duke Ellington’s first concert of Sacred Music in 1965, and this first-ever solo saxophone recording by the multi-award winning saxophone virtuoso Branford Marsalis. For this live recording, the cathedral’s deep acoustics are simply a blessing. Marsalis delivers a sonically stunning array of tunes, performing on soprano, tenor, and alto saxophones. With original material and compositions by Hoagy Carmichael, Steve Lacy, and more.  In My Solitude is a beautiful record. – John Gilbreath

Pure Imagination, Nuages

Pure Imagination, Nuages

Michael Paul Gurulé, Zach Zenovic, David Campbell & Travis Sipher

“Nuages” is French for “clouds,” and the CD can indeed bring to mind various forms of dancing atmospheric billows as they drift in the sky. Gurulé (saxophonist and band leader), who founded the ensemble in 2011, says the band takes its name from the title of a piece composed by the father of gypsy jazz, Django Reinhardt – “and since we are in the Northwest, Nuages seemed a perfect fit,” he says.  Nuages plays music that blends Eastern European gypsy flavor with a traditional swing sound.” – Bellingham Herald

And yes, “Pure Imagination” is inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

The Paragon Ragtime Orchestra Finally Plays The Entertainer

The Paragon Ragtime Orchestra Finally Plays The Entertainer  –  The Paragon Ragtime Orchestra

The Paragon Ragtime Orchestra –  Although the bill is dominated by Joplin rags, as it should be, (director) Benjamin also mixes in some other elements from the classic ragtime school; namely, Joseph Lamb, Arthur Marshall, and James Scott in arrangements much kinder to his music than that fashioned by Joplin…the PRO‘s use of period percussion and its greater understanding of the underlying rhythmic punctuations of this music, even exceeds that of the New England Conservatory Ragtime Ensemble of old. Moreover, these orchestral performances are more relaxed, lightly swinging, and possessed of period charm than most others of their kind. For devotees of the PRO, or ragtime music in general, Rialto Records “PRO Finally Plays the Entertainer” is well worth the wait. –Uncle Dave Lewis (AllMusic)

Keep Me in Your Heart for a While: the Best of Madeleine Peyroux

“Vocalist and composer Madeleine Peyroux has a stylistic reach well beyond that of jazz…. Her singing is closely set among the elaborate instrumentation, bearing a slight sepia tone without sounding archival.
