You're right Larry.....Jamie sounds fantastic but I'll add that the band helps make this CD what it is. The arrangements are top notch and Butch Miles is swingin his you know what off. Nothing worse than hearing a great singer with a weak band or visa versa. Very nice indeed. 
  Since we're on the topic of new recordings.......
  Scott Hamilton's "Nocturnes & Serenades".....no doubt he's one of the premier tenor saxophonists AND ballad players today. He seems to get better with time. 
  Vocalist Laika......"Look At Me Now"........great voice and a superb song selection....
  Enrico Pieranunzi...."Ballads".......beautiful....
  Trio Beyond....."Saudades"......DeJohnette is layin down the wood on this one....It's good to hear him opening up again on record and paying tribute to the great Tony Williams. Tony was a huge influence on Jack and I would highly recommend to anyone - that has never heard the "Life Time" to check out "Emergency" to see where "Saudades" is coming from conceptually. The ECM channel has let Jack produce some of the most inspiring drumming performances ever recorded...... "New Directions," "Double, Double You," "Gnu High," "Of Mist and Melting," "Sound Suggestions," "Voice From the Past," etc.....

I know I may be a little late because " the latest journalistic report," as 
writer Albert Murray calls it, says so, but I am just floored by Jamie 
Davis' new seriously hip album. It is about as good as it gets in my book. 
I was just wondering if anybody else feels the same way. The treatment of 
"Another Star" deserves five stars and is worth the price of admission 
alone. Forget the Joe Williams comparisons, this cat stands alone! When is 
he coming to the "beast" (east) coast?

This week's sponsor: Sunnyside Records - Steven Bernstein's Millennial Territory Orchestra


MTO Volume 1 is the debut album from Steven Bernstein's Millennial Territory Orchestra. The nine-piece outfit features some of Gotham's most original musical voices, wicked and well-traveled improvisers who tear into and savor Bernstein's arrangements like the tangiest Kansas City barbecue. The selection of tunes includes classic '20s fare (Charlie Johnson's ''Boy in the Boat,'' Bennie Moten's ''Toby'') and the kind of contemporary pop and R&B hits (Prince's ''Darling Nikki,'' Stevie Wonder's ''Signed, Sealed, Delivered'') that have long been part of Bernstein's repertoire. The vibrancy of the playing, the wit and sass of the arrangements, uncovers the genetic code that makes Bennie Moten and Prince funk-soul brothers of the first order. All this, without once conjuring the snoot of academe or dreaded notions of ''post-modern jazz.''

The Millennial Territory Orchestra is: Steven Bernstein (trumpet, slide trumpet), Ben Allison (bass) Peter Apfelbaum (tenor) Charlie Burnham (violin) Clark Gayton (trombone), Erik Lawrence (baritone, soprano) Matt Munisteri (guitar, banjo, vocal), Ben Perowsky (drums) Doug Wieselman (clarinet, tenor saxophone) and special guest Doug Wamble (guitar, vocal) on ''Signed, Sealed & Delivered''
