HAL
GALPER with JEFF JOHNSON & JOHN BISHOP   “How
Deep Is The Ocean”    “Take The Coltrane” 
E  PLURIBUS  UNUM  Live In Seattle   
Origin
Records

Hal Galper attacks the piano trying to out do himself
,every time, which means you get the best possible out of this jazz
giant,  every time.



MARIA
NECKAM
     “Indestructible Fort” “Happy Song”  
DEEPER 
   Sunnyside Records 


Charming with rare innocence, Viennese vocalist Maria
Neckam settles in NYC, which means, she has the tenacity to do her
own thing.  She writes her own songs which always intrigue us. 




NOAH
BAERMAN/WAYNE ESCOFFERY/ AMANDA MONACO/VINNIE SPERRAZZA/HENRY LUGO   
“Yes,
Yes, Oh Yes!”  “Baby Man”  PLAYDATE

Posi-tone Records

There's a kind of coolness going on here that's special,
sojourning a Saturday night in Reykjavik, so cool and non
pretentious, centered in a real, no b. s.  presence.

Don't know who's the inspiration,
Baerman/Escoffery/Monaco/Spearraza & Lugo. 


But this law is firm on all the above. “Baby Man” is
out a sight!




NANCY
HARMS
   “Great Indoors”  IN
THE INDIGO
    nancyharms.com 


This Minneapolis vocalist, Nancy Harms, out of the blue,
comes on with her own style, sans Blossom Dearie. We played a John
Mayer tune, “Great Indoors.” Watch out for this young lady. She
conquers every song she sings...




PAT
METHENY 
 “Orchestrion”
 
ORCHESTRION 
   Nonesuch Records

Pat Metheny creates another masterpiece in his prominent
diverse palate of successes with this masterpiece , where, as a rare
feat, he performs all the instruments. How he does it, is a mystery.
Stay tuned.




HAVANA
CARBO 
   “Poinciana”  
PHANTOM OF LOVE
    MODIL
MUSIC

Havana Carbo is a Cuban-American poet, singer and
artist.   She's assembled the best Latin jazz artists in the world
for this CD, which means it's a special, historical and relevant to
the cultural un-inhabiting of America over the last 200 years.




DR.
LONNIE SMITH
  “Softly As The Morning Sunrise”  THE
 ART  OF
 ORGANIZING
   Criss
Cross Jazz  


This is a very tasty, serene and smooth Dr Lonnie Smith
with guitarist Peter Bernstein playing his best runs, and there are
quite a few, with drummer Billy Drummond trap setting up a storm. 
Recorded in 1993 and released last year with all the joy and
'glad-i-tude' the good doctor can muster. After all, Dr Lonnie Smith
is the unquestioned master of the Hammond B-3.




HADLEY
CALIMAN  
  “Blues For PT”  “Totem Pole”    
STRAIGHT AHEAD

Saxophonist Hadley Caliman  teams with the extraordinary
trumpet player, Tom Marriott on Joe Locke's “Blues For PT.”  We
just has to player the other one, Lee Morgan's “Totem Pole,”
another hard bop fix for the energy is there with Hadley Caliman and
Thomas Marriott.

And Hadley Caliman reminds me of Dexter Gordon.... 





DEXTER
GORDON   “We
Dot”    LIVE
AT THE  BOTH/AND AFTER CLUB
SAN
FRANCISCO/ August 7 1970   BPM
Records

We had to go back to 1970to the Both/After Club in San
Francisco to hear this by Dexter Gordon with George Duke, Donald
Garrett and Oliver Johnson. 


With a generous introduction by Dexter Gordon on  JJ
Johnson's bop tune, “We Dot.”

Although Hadley Caliman will ascribe to Harold Land, we
feel that his 'pre suppose' also fills into Dexter Gordon's nonstop
“We Dot.”




THE
IAN CAREY QUINTET 
   “Contextualizin' “  CONTEXTUALIZIN'
  


Kabocha Records
“Ian
Carey is one of us,”  he exclaimed, a jazz ex-plainer may have
said, when elating to the new Ian Carey  Quintet CD,
“Contextualizin.”

Born in Binghampton New York, Ian Carey lived there,
then attended junior high where he studied cornet in Folsom
California. 


He studied classical trumpet, University of Nevada,
graduated from the New School of jazz and contemporary music in NYC
and relocated back to the Bay Area.

He's one of us!  


For all his talent and resourcefulness, we're fortunate
he's one of us-  a reincarnation of Chet Baker.




ERICA
LINSAY & SUMI TONOOKA      “Mingus
Mood”   INITIATION
   ARC
Records



This is for all the late night lost souls/ all night
creature features who can't let it go/searching for the third
stream/all noted for consciousness/ for inner freedom/heralding from
freeway blues, parking tickets, crimes against humanity and
impersonal turpitude.
“Freedom
>From The Known” is on the way.
