2009: Gretchen Parlato - In A DreamArtist: Gretchen Parlato

Gretchen Parlato is a rising star in vocal jazz circles of the 2000s who everyone should pay attention to and enjoy. Her singing is pure sterling silver, accented with just a hint of ethnic shadings and a big helping of modern style that goes well beyond standard fare. As alluring, distinct, and mature as her youthful instrument is, she deserves extra credit for choosing some of the most interesting young players who also are ascending to major-league status. Guitarist/vocalist Lionel Loueke, keyboardist Aaron Parks, bassist Derrick Hodge, and drummer Kendrick Scott are all leaders in their own right, but add bright and inventive accompaniment that perfectly matches the pristinely hopeful sounds Parlato expresses. The music taps from many sources, including a cute vocal variation of Herbie Hancock's funky "Butterfly," Wayne Shorter's "E.S.P." with rain forest imagery, scat, and quirky 6/8 beats, or Duke Ellington's "Azure" in adapted 5/4 time with Loueke's guitar and Hodge in late. Stevie Wonder's "I Can't Help It" is a pining, crossover, Latin-tinged love song as Parlato sings and Loueke scats and add mouth pops, while Dori Caymmi's skittering "Doralice" is easily representative of expanded tropicalia sensuality. Parks, much like his peer Robert Glasper, has the modern spirit song, loose-repeat-phrased-and-deep-harmonic piano style down pat. As you listen to the Glasper/Parlato joint composition "In a Dream," or the 7/8 meter of "Turning into Blue," you are enveloped in this thin veneer of cloudy, dream sequence sound that identifies the heart and soul of these unique musicians. "Weak" turns this concept into a rock/funk beat emphasized by Fender Rhodes electric piano juxtaposing choppy rhythms versus Parlato's sweet voice, whereas "On the Other Side" flips the script in a shuffle with percussion in shades of renewal and retrial. A muffled, taped recording of Parlato singing at age two is tacked on two tracks, emphasizing the growth curve she has experienced, but more so how she appreciates the child-like wonder that her music clearly retains. Gretchen Parlato is going to be a major player on the contemporary vocal music scene, jazz or not. In a Dream already shows vast potential realized, and is easily recommended to those who appreciate vocal music with an instrumentalist's concept.

2009: Ad Colen Quartet - Free Music » Jazz » Modern Jazz
2009: Ad Colen Quartet - FreeArtist: Ad Colen Quartet
Album: Free
Label: Sweet Briar Music
Year: 2009
Format, bitrate: mp3, 320kb/s
Size: 142MB

The new CD of the Ad Colen Quartet is out.
The desire to play in a way that is free.
In his compositions, Ad Colen is always after narrative melodies, various harmonies and wonderfully crazy grooves.
New forms of improvisation have been integrated in the structure of the composition in a variety of ways.
To make this CD Free the Ad Colen Quartet has sought inspiration in everything that was going on around them, unblinkered and without restrictive thoughts. A free way of playing, resulting in a wonderful outcome.
Things are going well as far as Dutch jazz is concerned. The Ad Colen Quartet is a good example of this. This quartet has produced four magnificent CDs within the space of a couple of years. CDs full of compositions full of ambiance, dynamic solos and volcanic grooves, where the individual input of all musicians plays a decisive role.
Starting from September of 2008, Ad Colen got to work with a new quartet. After spending a decade playing with fantastic musicians such as Michiel Borstlap, Rob van Bavel, Erik Robaard, Chris Strik and Jasper van Hulten he started to feel the need to explore a new type of collaboration.
Ge Bijvoet (winner of the soloist award at the NOS Meervaart Jazz Festival), an idiosyncratic piano player who always gives his own touch to any music, was an obvious choice. He was joined by Wiro Mahieu, (winner of the Wessel Ilcken prize) one of the best contra bass players in the Netherlands, excelling through his groove, technique and lyrical sound. Yonga Sun (winner of the Dutch Jazz Competition), who combines incredible creativity and groove, was the perfect fit. These musicians were perfectly attuned to each other from their very first rehearsal, and they were able to achieve the exact touch that Ad Colen was trying to achieve with his music.
Not surprisingly, music reviewers have greeted the CD with great enthusiasm.
From the North Sea Jazz festival, to several tours and master classes in Indonesia, and performances at home and abroad: the music of the Ad Colen Quartet has definitely found its place in the international world of jazz.

1988: Supersax - Stone Bird Music » Jazz » BeBop
1988: Supersax - Stone Bird
Artist: Supersax
Album: Stone Bird
Label: Columbia
Year: 1988
Format: Flac
Time: 45:35
Size: 294 MB

With the release of Clint Eastwood's film Bird, Supersax got together for their first instrumental recording (without the L.A. Voices) in ten years. They returned to their original concept, using Charlie Parker's original recorded solos (reharmonized for five saxophones) as melodies and featuring solos by trumpeter Conte Candoli and pianist Lou Levy (but none by the individual saxophonists). Several of the numbers had been recorded previously, but these renditions still sound fresh. Most memorable are "Scrapple from the Apple," "Salt Peanuts," "K.C. Blues" and "Confirmation."

1987: Freddie Hubbard - Life Flight Hard-bop, Post-bop
1987: Freddie Hubbard - Life Flight
Artist: Freddie Hubbard
Album: Life Flight
Label: Blue Note
Year: 1987
Format, bitrate: mp3@320 Kbps
Time: 41.8 min.
Size: 93.9MB

This CD captures the great trumpeter Freddie Hubbard at the age of 48 just before he began to decline. Hubbard is heard in excellent shape on two selections apiece with two separate bands. One group, a sextet with tenor-saxophonist Stanley Turrentine and guitarist George Benson, recalls the trumpeter's glory days on CTI although the material ("Battlescar Galorica" and "A Saint's Homecoming Song") was of recent vintage. The other band, a quintet with tenor-saxophonist Ralph Moore, looks back toward his earlier Blue Note and Atlantic days; they perform two Hubbard originals ("The Melting Pot" and "Life Flight"). Overall this set (from an era when the veteran trumpeter was being overshadowed by Wynton Marsalis) gives listeners one of the last opportunities to hear Freddie Hubbard in peak form.
