Pinheiro-Amado-Pedroso - Triology (2014)


Source & Label: Sintoma Records
Gab's Rating: ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ 




"O trio guitarra, baixo e bateria é das formações mais marcantes da história do jazz nas ultimas décadas.

Desde a tradição de Wes Montgomery ou Joe Pass, a estética desta formação tem sido renovada atè aos dias de hoje por nomes como Jim Hall, John Scofield, Bill Frisell, Mike Stern, Kurt Rosenwinkel entre muitos outros.

O projecto TRIOLOGY, constituído por três músicos com vasto percurso no panorama musical português, emerge dessa tradição, apresentando uma estética moderna a um repertório onde constam jazz standards bem como temas mais populares de bandas como Beatles ou Soundgarden."

"The trios composed of guitar, bass and drums are one of the most prominent instrumentations in modern jazz history.

Departing from the tradition of Wes Montgomery or Joe Pass trios, the art of this formation was pushed forward to present days by names such as Jim Hall, John Scofield, Bill Frisell, Mike Stern, Kurt Rosenwinkel, amongst many others.

TRIOLOGY is the result of collective work of three musicians with a large background in the portuguese jazz scene, following the tradition of the jazz guitar trio, but also exploring modern approaches to jazz standards as well as songs from bands like The Beatles and Soundgarden."

Patrick Wolff & The SFRJQ - Go Down Swinging (2014)


Gab's Rating: ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆


"Go Down Swinging" is the first release by the SFRJQ, a highly respected group of some of the Bay Area's finest jazz musicians. The quartet has evolved around Wolff's explorations of great and underplayed jazz compositions by musicians like Elmo Hope, Clifford Jordan, Lucky Thompson, Thelonious Monk, and others. Now entering its' third year of a weekly residency at San Francisco's Club Deluxe, the group plays with the loose, rolling energy and integrated sound that can only come from a working band. To capture the natural feel of the group in performance this album was recorded live to tape with no isolation, overdubs, or edits at Tiny Telephone Studios, engineered by Ian Pellicci, and mastered by A.T. Michael MacDonald.

Ignore the starchy name, with its intimations of formality and overthought programming. The San Francisco Repertory Jazz Quartet is a tough, gutsy and consistently inspired band dedicated to exploring a treasure trove of overlooked tunes.
Led by tenor saxophonist Patrick Wolff, the group plays compositions by mostly forgotten masters of the 1950s and '60 like pianist Elmo Hope and saxophonists Lucky Thompson and Clifford Jordan. While the music all falls within the modern jazz mainstream of the era, each tune is rife with idiosyncratic details that make it a welcome revelation.
"From about 1955 to 1968 was a golden age of jazz composition," says Wolff, who brings the SFRJQ to Cafe Stritch on May 31. "There was too much music for people to really take it in at the time, and some of these tunes were only recorded once. We're trying to take the time to actually explore them."
Wolff launched the band in 2012 on one of his ongoing Wednesday night gigs at San Francisco's Club Deluxe, a jazz spot in the Haight that features a regular rotation of top Bay Area musicians. Determined to use the opportunity to develop an interesting body of music, he decided against rounding up the usual standards.
Featuring Santa Cruz-raised drummer Smith Dobson V, pianist Adam Shulman and bassist Eric Markowitz, the band released its debut album last year, "Go Down Swinging." The most fascinating material is by Clifford Jordan, an undeservedly overlooked Chicago tenor saxophonist who died in 1993. While deeply influenced by John Coltrane's music of the early 1960s, Jordan distilled his sound to essentials. Read more...
