Mike Baggetta Quartet - Thieves And Secrets (2014)


Source & Label: Fresh Sound New Talent
 

"On 'Thieves and Secrets', the New York jazz guitarist Mike Baggetta makes stealthy, mysterious music, with electric and acoustic guitar, and some electronics. He’s played his share of standard jazz repertory, and can improvise fast and fluidly, showing all kinds of learning. (His solos here on the title track and on “Country Wisdom” make that plain.) But this is something else. Mr. Baggetta is into making clearly delineated music, melodies and chord patterns and actual songs, but he’s also into sound and space and texture. He’s a soloist, but interested in the whole area of a piece of music: backgrounds and middle grounds as much as foregrounds. What’s especially good here — in a set of calm, slow songs with the saxophonist Jason Rigby, the bassist Eivind Opsvik and the drummer George Schuller — is that he’s trying to do something personal with collective improvisation without ever getting in the way of beauty."  Ben Ratliff - June 13, 2014 New York Times -

Benjamin Herman - Live (2014)


Label: Dox Records


Since 2007, Benjamin Herman has been playing twice a month at the De Kring in Amsterdam. Several of his albums, including Campert, Hypochristmastreefuzz and Café Solo, resulted directly from his musical activities at this legendary arts society. His latest album Live has Herman and his quartet playing on the occasion of De Kring’s 90th anniversary. His previous album Café Solo already included two tracks of those recordings and now, due to popular demand, the other tracks have been made available. Live also features two tracks from a concert Herman gave with his trio in November 2013 during Jazzfest at Amsterdam’s Studio/K.
Besides his usual rhythm section of Ernst Glerum and Joost Patočka, Herman is accompanied by the Spanish pianist Miguel Rodriguez, who has been the house pianist for De Kring sessions for the last 1.5 years. The track Rednose Distrikt also features the formidable Joris Roelofs on bass clarinet.

Andy Biskin Ibid - Act Necessary (2014)

Source: Andy Biskin

Clarinetist-composer Andy Biskin is up to his old tricks again on Act Necessary, the debut release by his new quartet, Ibid. Mashing up everything from polkas and New Orleans jazz to funk and Tin Pan Alley, Biskin shoehorns sophisticated compositional elements into epic miniature tunes. His all-star quartet, featuring cornetist Kirk Knuffke, trombonist Brian Drye, and drummer Jeff Davis, handles each musical hairpin turn with infectious enthusiasm and deep insight into the music’s many subtleties.

The impeccable horn trifecta of Biskin, Knuffke and Drye were seemingly born for these cinematic histrionics, interlocking, weaving in and about, taking turns and trading light jabs with a wielding of bubbly phraseology as Davis guides the rumpus with a swaggering backbeat.... While Biskin receives top billing as Ibid’s brain trust, Act Necessary presents a group of equals brimming with flawless interaction. —Brad Cohan, New York City Jazz Record

Satolu Oda aka Satoru Oda (real name)

Satoru Oda, tenor saxophonist, b. Fukuoka, Japan, September 27th 1927. Known to European festival audiences as "Japan's Lester Young," Oda has been a consistent advocate for good-time Kansas City swing.  His musical career began in 1943 as a clarinetist in a navy band; he first heard jazz in his ship's gun room, over an intercepted short-wave radio broadcast from the US.  He began studying the music immediately after Japan's surrender, performing in US servicemen's camps in Beppu and eventually heading to Tokyo in 1947.  He was an early mentor of Akiyoshi Toshiko.  After playing with Tokyo Jive, the Gay Septet, and the Midnight Suns, Oda formed his own band, the Pres Nine, in 1955 and has been performing under his own name ever since at clubs such as Birdland. Jimmy Lyons took a special interest in Oda and put him on the bill of the Monterey Jazz Festival for several years.  Satoru Oda has recorded with Hank Jones and performed with avant-gardist Yosuke Yamashita.

Eddy Palermo - Brincando entre Amigos (2014)


L'Italia è per tradizione il Paese dei grandi artisti. Tra questi hanno un posto nell'Olimpo dell'Arte i musicisti, compositori e interpreti, che hanno lasciato un segno importante nella storia della Musica.

Tra i grandi interpreti contemporanei a me è toccata la fortuna di conoscere e soprattutto l'onore di suonare con un artista di fama internazionale come Eddy Palermo, un virtuoso della chitarra jazz e non solo.

La sua maniera spontanea di suonare si esprime con grande abilità tecnica e con una eccezionale  velocità di esecuzione che lascia intatta e godibile tutta la  sensibilità e la musicalità di cui il Maestro è capace. Nell'improvvisazione, il fraseggio affascina l'uditorio per il suo gusto raffinato e la sua imaginifica creatività.

A tutto questo Eddy aggiunge, avvolto nel mondo del suo swing, una interpretazione molto personale di intendere la musica brasiliana come pochi altri. Comprensibile, quindi, l'entusiasmo e l'onore, provato per aver preso parte al suo ultimo cd e la gioia che mi ha procurato e che mi fa gridare "Viva Eddy che suona con il cuore"! Un abbraccio e buona fortuna. Toninho Horta
