“ Roberto Fonseca is a 38-year old Cuban born composer and pianist. He’s the son of singer Mercedes Cortes Alfaro, who has sung on his records, and the half-brother of drummer Emilio Valdes and pianist Jesus “Chuchitos” Valdes. ”Along with touring with Buena Vista Social Club, Fonseca has released eight albums including this one, dropped recently by Concord Music. It’s a spectacular melding of a number of influences -- from Cuban sonority to African rhythms to traditional jazz harmonies -- that's easy to digest while still encouraging multiple listenings. The dazzling “Mi Negra Ave Maria,” which features a beautiful poetry reading by Mike Ladd, is, alone, worth the price of admission.
“ WASHINGTON, DC-- The first time I ever heard of Blues Alley in Washington, DC, was as a performer with the Al Dowe Quintet. Dowe, a Pittsburgh trombonist/bandleader, had performed there and often spoke favorably of the world-famous jazz club. Thirty years later, on a recent Tuesday night, I finally visited Blues Alley. The club is quite quaint and holds just about 120 people, comfortably. On this warm September evening, I caught the first of two shows featuring locally- acclaimed keyboardist, Kevin Toney, formerly of The Blackbyrds. ”The club's menu also provided an unexpected Pittsburgh flavor, including several menu items named for legendary Pittsburgh musicians such as Stanley Turrentine's crab cakes; Phyllis Hyman's stuffed shrimp and Ahmad Jamal's pasta with pesto.
This book celebrates the public emergence of an extraordinary visual and audio archive that was initiated by Ian Bruce Huntley in Cape Town fifty years ago. Electric Jive is very happy to announce that a limited edition print run of 500 copies is now at the printers. The book is expected to be available towards the end of November. Covering the period 1964 - 1974, the Ian Bruce Huntley archive opens a window to a little known era of South African music history, documenting an ‘underground’ jazz scene that persisted in creative defiance of all that grand apartheid threw at it. In addition to 120 historical images, 56 hours of live recordings from many of the photographed performances are indexed in this book and will become available for free download through Electric Jive.
Pepper Adams was one of hard bop\'s most significant baritone saxophonists. His dark, hearty tone on the horn and driving rhythmic sense provided the antithesis to the lighter, floating (and consequently more popular) styles of Gerry Mulligan.
“ Ginger Baker is not a rock drummer. His words, not mine. In today's Wall Street Journal (go here or please buy the paper), I profile Ginger, who as a founding member of Cream in 1966, revolutionized rock drumming with lengthy,...”
