However fine the playing is, I found the crowd noise very distracting, prompting me to pass on this release. I remember seeing Karrin Allyson at the Green Mill in Chicago a few years back and the owner there made a direct plea, almost an order, to the audience at the beginniing of the show to be quite while she was performing. Why more venue owners don't do the same is beyond me. If I'm paying good money to see an artist, wherever it may be, I would expect to be able to actually hear said artist. Obviously, common courtesy is in quite short supply in our society these days.

Guitarist/vocalist LUIS MARIO OCHOA - MOMENTOS CUBANOS w/ pianist Hilario Duran - sublime instrumental and vocal performances of classic and original Latin American tunes


Alto saxophonist JALEEL SHAW - OPTIMISM w/ Robert Glasper, Lage Lund, Jeremy Pelt - modern jazz as it's being created today!

Vocalist KAREN BLIXT - MAD HOPE w/ Patrice Rushen, Randy Brecker, Will Kennedy, Abraham Laboriel, Alex Acuna, Kenny Washington - a set of highly original jazz vocals!


Vocalist LAINIE COOKE and IT'S ALWAYS YOU w/ Joel Frahm. People who know a 'real' jazz singer when they hear one love Lainie.  Here she sings about finding and losing love in performances that contain no hype nor attitude but rather resonate with pure emoting backed by the gravitas only true life experience can endow in an artist.

FOLLOW THE NORTH STAR by alto saxophonist/flutist TK BLUE w/ Steve Turre and Onaje Alan Gumbs.  TK, who tours with Randy Weston when not on his own, exemplifies the Afro-centric tradition pioneered by Rashaan Roland Kirk, Yusef Lateef, Pharoah Sanders and Gary Bartz he, Turre and Babatunde Lea are keeping alive today.

I am curious about to know what you other programmers think about "The Way
I Play" - the new Bobby Broom record on Origin. Personally, I think the
playing is really good but I am conflicted about the sound quality of this
recording. Some of the tracks seem to have more of the restaurant noise
than others. When does a live recording become too live?
