Wisps of an Unknown FaceStephen Gauci (Tenor Saxophone), Nate Wooley (Trumpet), Ken Filiano (Bass), Lou Grassi (Drums)Stephen Gauci has come on strong in the past three years. A veteran of the business, it's only of recent that he's decided to record. And that still slim body of work has been enthusiastically received by both the public and critics.
Here Stephen expands his core trio with trumpeter Nate Wooley—a brilliant choice. The whole of Gauci, Wooley, Filiano, and Grassi is music far more than the sum of its parts. Signs Of The TimesBurton Greene (Piano), Paul Smoker (Trumpet), Russ Nolan (Saxophone), George Schuller (Drums)This is Volume One of the results of a 3-day recording project devoted to the artistry of Burton Greene. This first set features Burton's music as played by a quintet (the following sessions are trio and solo) that handles some difficult charts with ease and improvisations with inspiration. Unique and identifiable, this is the first documentation of a notable occasion from a veteran artist at the top of his form. Recorded Aug. 16, 2005. Stellar SaxErnie Krivda (Saxophone), Bob Fraser (Guitar), Dominick Farinacci (Trumpet), Jeff Halsey (Bass), Carmen Intorre (Drums)One of the most distinctive and uncompromised stylists in Jazz, this new release from the quintet offers up four extended explorations including some new Krivda compositions, plus a fascinating solo invention off "Stella By Starlight." Sharing the front-line as he has on four other Krivda releases is Dominick Farinacci (trumpet) while Bob Fraser (g) and Carmen Intorre (d) also return. And Jeff Halsey's big bass finally reunites with Krivda after a long association that began in 1985. Recorded June 15 & 16, 2005. Celebration of the SpiritJazz Composers Alliance Orchestra (Group), Hiroaki Honshuku (Flute), Jims Hobbs (Alto Sax), Jeremy Udden (Alto Sax), Phil Scarff (Tenor&Soprano Sax), Hands Indigo (Bari Sax), Mike Peipman (Trumpet), Keiichi Hashimoto (Trumpet), Jim Mosher (French Horn), Bob Pilkington (Trombone), David Harris (Trombone), Jim Gray (Tuba), Richie Barshay (Drums), Winnien Dahlgren (Vibes), Soo-Jung Kae (Piano), Takaaki Masuko (Percussion), Rick McLaughlin (Bass), Norma Zocher (Guitar), Laura Andel (Composer/Conductor), Darrell Katz (Composer/conductor, dir. of Jazz Compose), Ken Schaphorst (Composer/Conductor), Warren Senders (Composer/Conductor)Here is an incredible combination: a big band full of exciting soloists playing the compositions of 5 composers recorded in real stereo, the CIMP way - with clarity, space and accurate dynamics. Everything about this recording will excite. You'll have to hear it to believe it. Recorded at The Tsai Performance Center at Boston University, Boston, MA October 5, 2003. Balafon DanceKhan Jamal (Vibes), Jemeel Moondoc (Alto Saxophone), Roy Campbell (Trumpet), Dylan Taylor (Bass), Dwight James (Drums)Khan reunites with a group of old friends and colleagues on this remarkable session of composition and energy. Khan Jamal is one of the most distinctive voices in creative music in both sound and compositional substance. This is his first recording in 5 years and only his second in 13. He's careful and deliberate about his music but presents for the listener finished, fully-formed, and wonderfully listenable adventures in music. This concert offers music accessible to a broad range of tastes but remains always uncompromising in its delivery and statement. Recorded March 18 & 19, 2002. Fo(u)r Being(s)Adam Lane (Bass), John Tchicai (Tenor Saxophone), Paul Smoker (Trumpet), Barry Altschul (Drums)This is bassist Adam Lane's third release. His first 2 offered a thunderous view of his writing/arranging work for larger groups. Again, the listener is treated to Adam Lane's compositional abilities, and, in addition, is better able to hear his instrumental abilities, well-exposed over the 6 tracks. In this all-star company there's no place to hide and Adam proves he's up to the company he keeps. ComPOsedLou Grassi (Drums), John Tchicai (Tenor Saxophone), Paul Smoker (Trumpet), Art Baron (Trombone), Perry Robinson (Clarinet), Wilber Morris (Bass)The latest from Lou Grassi's PoBand. This time the guest artist is John Tchicai. This concert by the PoBand is unique for a number of reasons (besides the always-fresh improvisations and presence of guest John Tchicai) in that, for the first time it deals with a compositional framework; Art Baron joins the band; and, sadly, this was the late Wilber Morris' last outing with the band that he helped establish in 1995. Thankfully, Wilber's spirit and voice (instrumentally and vocally) is well represented on the date. Eight wondrous cuts. CamoflageSteve Lehman (Alto Saxophone), Roy Campbell, Jr. (Trumpet), Kevin O'Neil (Electric Guitar), John Hebert (Acoustic Bass), Kevin Norton (Percussion)This is Volume 2 of the impressive debut from saxman Steve Lehman and his quintet: Volume 2, not leftovers; you know CIMP would never compromise the music. In this case, it is music out of the Jackie McLean – Anthony Braxton tradition, but roots, not retreads. Recorded May 14 & 15, 2001. ExposedFred Hess (Tenor Saxophone), Paul Smoker (Trumpet), Ken Filiano (Bass), Damon Short (Drums)Noted for establishing the Boulder Creative Music Ensemble in the mid-80's, composer, arranger, and tenor saxman Fred Hess takes a rare excursion outside of that role to expose his compositions and sax in a dynamic quartet. If Mr. Hess' previous activities have missed your attention, this release should put him in your sights. It's one of his best (we might even immodestly suggest that it is his best) to date. Recorded June 11 & 12, 2001. RitualHerb Robertson (Trumpet), Phil Haynes (Drums)This is a phenomenal recording of a single take of a single improvised excursion between Herb Robertson and Phil Haynes. A riveting tour de force, a singular listen and a milestone in the careers of these 2 master improvisers. Recorded February 29, 2000. Canticles for the New MillenniumJay Rosen (Drums), Vinny Golia (Clarinet), Paul Smoker (Trumpet), Mark Whitecage (Moosecall)Jay Rosen, sensitive and dynamic drummer on many fine CIMP sessions, steps out for his debut as a leader and it's impressive. Leading a bassless quartet made up of some of today's most dymnamic players, he not only lifts and drives some intense music but manages to integrate his dynamics in both a supportive and take-charge way. Rosen with Golia, Smoker, and Whitecage: a gutsy move with wondrous results. Recorded Sept. 1 & 2, 1999. GalleryHugh Ragin (Trumpet), Marc Sabatella (Piano)Hugh Ragin and Marc Sabatella have been working in duo situations since 1991. Their intuitive interplay and bold use of space create music of great dynamism and impressionism. With Marc playing a Steinway concert grand in duets with Hugh's perfectly pitched trumpet, this recording is an audiophile stunner as well as music of real quality and depth. recorded June 23, 1998. Through the WoodsFrode Gjerstad (Alto Saxophone), Bobby Bradford (Trumpet), Wilber Morris (Bass), Newman Baker (Drums)Frode Gjerstad is a dynamic Norwegian saxman obviously unafraid of the unknown; actually, he embraces it. On this strong quartet date, he matches his aptitudes with Wilber Morris, Newman Baker, and the (legendary?) avant garde trumpeter, Bobby Bradford. They've never sounded better, this is music of emotional and cerebral power. Recorded Sept. 15 & 16, 1997. DedicationAhmed Abdullah (Trumpet), Carlos Ward (Flute), Masujaa (Guitar), Alex Blake (Bass), Cody Moffett (Drums)Ahmed Abdullah's first release in ten years is a well-conceived and executed dedication to the late Charles Moffett, his colleague of many years. Cody Moffett took over his father's drum seat (and drums) for this eclectic and charming program of 9 tunes (La Vie En Rose and I'll Be Seeing You along with standards and traditional music. Recorded June 17 & 18, 1997.
