Who i'm listening to now...

Triad- Christian Dominick-Michael 300x300.webp

The incredible pianist Renee Rosnes with  Steve Nelson (v), Peter Washington (b), and Bill Stewart (d).  Special guest :Steve Wilson flute and sax.  

Ted Piltzecker

Ted Piltzecker's newest  CD, Vibes On A Breath, is one you'll want to own.  His fresh new arrangements of tunes "If I Only Had A Brain" and "Nature Boy," new instrumentation with powerful horns, some solid originals, and a team that listens and works together adds up to certainty on every tune.  There's a sense of wholeness and absence of ego under Ted's leadership.  I'll be playing it on Mornin' Gloria on WETF, South Bend, Indiana.  Highly recommended.

Dave Stryker & Bob Mintzer

Blue Soul, another superlative offering from Dave Stryker, the jazz guitarist who has stuck a flag in ‘70s territory and claimed it for his own.  This newest recording is a collaboration with saxophonist/arranger/conductor Bob Mintzer and the WDR Big Band, the highly regarded German jazz ensemble.   It includes Marvin Gaye’s “Trouble Man’ and “What’s Going On,” three of Dave’s originals, and Mintzer’s “Aha.”  Prince’s “When Dove’s Cry” and Jimmy Webb’s “Wichita Lineman” are given the Stryker treatment, as well as Stanley Turrentine’s “Stan’s Shuffle.”

One of my favorite vibraphonists, Steve Yeager, and I have teamed up to create an album of 15 of my poems from Jazz verse in the key of jazz.  Steve's original music creates a mood for each one that I read.  All the poems are built of jazz tune titles around a central theme.  The composer index reads like a list of the top 1000 jazz standards. The book and the CD make a perfect pair.  $10 or free with the purchase of Jazz Lines. See the My Book tab.
