Eddie Harris • Exodus to Jazz

Review by Steve Huey One of the biggest hit jazz LPs of the post-rock & roll era, Eddie Harris’ Exodus to Jazz seemed to come completely out of left field. It was the debut album by a previously unknown artist from an under-publicized scene in Chicago, and it was released on the primarily R&B-oriented Vee […]

Cal Tjader • Cuban Fantasy

Review by Ken Dryden Cuban Fantasy consists of previously unissued selections from two 1977 concerts by Cal Tjader at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, though this is anything but an example of clearing out tape vaults simply to issue new product. Joined by pianist Clare Fischer, conga player Poncho Sanchez, guitarist Bob […]

Le Chinois And Friends , “Jazz Manouche” – 2016

  Guitariste passionné par le jazz manouche, Sébastien Kauffmann apprend à jouer de son instrument dès l’âge de 12 ans. Mais le réel désir de faire de cette passion un métier est né de sa rencontre avec Yorgui Loeffler deux ans plus tard. Ce dernier lui a prêté sa 1ère guitare avant de devenir son […]

Pat Martino • All Sides Now

Review by Scott Yanow Veteran Pat Martino is teamed up with a variety of different fellow guitarists on this interesting if not quite essential release. Martino matches wits with guitarist Charlie Hunter (who on Stevie Wonder’s “Too High” often sounds like an organist), Tuck Andress, Kevin Eubanks, Les Paul (“I’m Confessin’”), Mike Stern and Michael […]

Bobby Timmons Trio • Born To Be Blue!

Throughout his career, Bobby Timmons was typecast as a soulful and blues-oriented pianist due to his hits (“Moanin ‘,” “This Here” and “Dis Dat”). But as he shows on this 1963 trio date (with either Sam Jones or Ron Carter on bass and drummer Connie Kay), Timmons was actually a well-rounded player when inspired. The […]

Pat Martino • Cream

Review by Matt Collar The 32 Jazz compilation Cream collects tracks from some of guitarist Pat Martino’s best albums, including Consciousness and his post-brain aneurysm 1987 comeback Return. Although 32 Jazz also reissued most of the albums these cuts come from, having them in one place makes for a nice introduction to Martino’s distinctive ambient […]

Michel & Tony Petrucciani • Conversation

Review by Ken Dryden Michel Petrucciani always excelled in front of a live audience, and this 1992 concert with his father Tony accompanying him on guitar is no exception, though it’s a shame it wasn’t released until 2001, some two years after the pianist’s death. An adventurous exploration of “Summertime” serves as a strong opener, […]

Lou Mecca, Bill de Arango & Chuck Wayne • 3 Swinging Guitar Sessions

Originally issued on three 10-inch LPs, these albums feature three outstanding but underrated jazz guitarists: Lou Mecca, Bill de Arango and Chuck Wayne. Crisp, inventive and fleet-fingered, Mecca found his own voice from his main inspiration, Tal Farlow, whom he replaced in the Gil Mellé Quartet. Lous classical guitar sound is complemented in this 1954 […]

Lou McGarity Quintet • Music From Some Like It Hot

Artist Biography by Scott Yanow A very talented trombone soloist influenced by Jack Teagarden but possessing his own brassier sound, Lou McGarity was a strong asset to many bands and jam sessions. He started out playing violin when he was seven, not switching to trombone until he was 17. McGarity studied at the University of […]
