Richie Kamuca's - Charlie (1979)


Beautiful Silver Label All Analogue 2nd Issue. Features Blue Mitchell, Jimmy Rowles, Ray Brown And Donald Bailey. “Richie Kamuca's Death From Cancer At Age 47 Just Months After This Final Session Was A Major Loss To Jazz. One Of The Top Proponents Of The Four Brothers Sound On Tenor, Kamuca Always Swung And His Tone Was Quite Attractive. This Particular Set Is A Tribute To Charlie Parker Featuring Kamuca's Quintet (Which Includes Trumpeter Blue Mitchell, Pianist Jimmy Rowles, Bassist Ray Brown And Drummer Donald Bailey). Most Unusual Is The Fact That Kamuca Decided To Play Alto Instead Of Tenor Throughout This Set And, Although This Was Clearly Not His Strongest Ax, He Solos Quite Well On This Date. The Music (Bop Standards And Blues) Receives Favorable And Swinging Treatment From The Talented Veterans.” Scott Yanow, AMG.

The Richie Kamuca Quartet- Richie



Kamuca was born in Philadelphia, and, like many players associated with West Coast jazz, grew up in the East before moving West around the time that bebop changed the prevailing style of jazz. His early playing, in what is generally considered the Lester Young style, was done on tour with the big bands of Stan Kenton and Woody Herman, where he became a member of the later line-ups of Herman's Four Brothers saxophone section with Al Cohn and Bill Perkins.

Kamuca stayed on the West Coast, playing with the smaller groups of Chet Baker, Maynard Ferguson, Shorty Rogers, and others. He was one of the Lighthouse All-Stars in 1957 and 1958, and recorded with Perkins, Art Pepper, Jimmy Rowles, Cy Touff and many others in those years, as well as leading recording sessions in his own right.

Kamuca was a member of the group Shelly Manne and His Men from 1959 through 1962, when he returned East and settled in New York. Here he worked with Gerry Mulligan, Gary McFarland, and Roy Eldridge before returning to the West Coast in 1972, where he recorded in the studios and performed with local groups.

Less well known to the general public than saxophonists, like Stan Getz, who played in a similar Lester Young-derived style, Kamuca died of cancer, in Los Angeles, just before his 47th birthday.

Reggie Padilla - Almost Home (2012)


Source: Teenjazz
Label: Pass Out Records

If you’ve happened across videos of a saxophonist playing while surfing on Youtube (or even here on Teen Jazz), you’ve already had an introduction to the talented, up and coming musician that is Reggie Padilla.
Having become a tour de force on the Hawaii jazz scene as a sideman and bandleader over the past few years, Reggie decided in 2013 that he was ready to take his career to the next level with his debut release, Almost Home (Pass Out Records).
And in (early) celebration of his upcoming Spring 2014 release, we’d like to share his debut project with you.
Almost Home was released March 1, 2013 and serves as an excellent representation of the next generation of jazz musicians staking their claim in the genre. The compositions on the project reflect both Reggie Padilla’s diversity and expertise as a composer and saxophonist with twelve full length pieces. The album was recorded live in two days.
While the album in its entirety showcases the talents of Reggie and his band, the stand out tracks for us were, without a doubt, “It Never Occurred to Me” and “Outside In.” “It Never Occurred to Me” is a bit funky and upbeat while “Outside In” is laid-back, bluesy, and has a hint of gospel influence to it and the track is one that I can just play on repeat.
Almost Home features the talents of some of Honolulu’s finest musicians such as Jim Howard (piano), Dean Taba (bass) and Abe Lagrimas, Jr. (drums).

Reggie Padilla was born and raised in Long Island, New York. He began playing the saxophone at the age of nine and classical piano at the age of seven. He earned his BM in Classical Piano Performance from Long Island University at CW Post and his Master’s of Music Education from New York University. He relocated to Hawaii in 2007 where he has collaborated with artists and groups including Eric Miyashiro, Yasuko Hayakawa, Dan Hill, Stephen Bishop, and Bop Tribal.

Brice Winston - Child's Play (2014)


On his Criss Cross debut, tenor saxophonist Brice Winston, an integral member of Terence Blanchard's ensembles since 1998, follows his long-time employer's policy of convening a band from the best and brightest of the generation following his, and giving them ample room to feed his imagination through their personal creativity.

Guitarist Mike Moreno, pianist David Virelles, bassist Joe Sanders and drummer Marcus Gilmore join Winston for a stimulating program, comprising five originals notable for their harmonic depth and melodic orientation, as well as two freshly reimagined Wayne Shorter classics, and the standard "I Thought About You".
