An Old Coot who first heard Bro. Armstrong in 1953 and has made American Classical Music (as Ahmad Jamal has correctly labelled Jazz), a life-long pursuit!

  1. No Job Too Small
    by James Greening
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Mossman Mossman
    A sensational recording with so much going on, I'm tempted to compare this with a Degustation Menu We worked our way through in the Hunter Valley: All good, nothing missing, wonderful tastes which got better with each new course and each new Wine - This, then, is food for the ears, equally satisfying with rich beautifully recorded sound that is close to perfection!

    The Musicians play together so well and are un-questionably happy to be making this fine recording. Bravo!
  2. Not By Chance
    by Joe Martin
    featured track 00:00/00:00
    Semente Semente
    An inspired grouping! Great players don't always make great music - Here they do! No 'primadonnas' in this band; the music comes first & foremost. This is exciiting (& refreshing), impeccable playing by all members contributing to a stand-out recording where the music is paramount.

    It would be difficult and unfair to label a favorite track; they're all worthy contenders but if pressed I might say the title track!

    After weeks of regular playing, I find 'Not By Chance' among my top recordings!
  3. Parto Forte
    by Avishai Cohen
    A long and rather hypnotic track that never falters. Mr. Cohen, in addition to his many other attributes is indeed a Master Builder with an incredible sense of momentum and unlike many of his contempories shows, at all times, restraint in the development of the piece and of solos, never 'nailing it down' too soon in displays of technique. However, when the time is right, he can really 'let it rip'!

    Like all his work, this is a beautifully structured and well developed piece!

    Thank You!
  4. Goodbye Pork Pie Hat
    by Avishai Cohen
    track 00:00/00:00
    Wow! Imagine having Lester Young looking over one shoulder & Mingus over the other - It doesn't worry our Brave Trumpeter who turns in an electrifing performance with glorious tone, superb musicianship, wonderful technique & the utmost respect for these two Giants. This, by the way, is how beautiiful a Trumpet can sound (in the right hands) & I know Mingus and Lester would approve wholeheartedly.

    Truly a defining moment for Avishai - I'm sure there are others, I just haven't heard them, yet!

  5. All Brothers
    by Anat Cohen
    I bought this track without hearing a preview and the intro. set up a mood... but for what? Well as it turns out a rather swinging track, that rips along brilliantly! It's Anat, I should have known it would be first class!
    The trio, without Anat, come up with some amazing sounds. Lindner's playing on the piano strings is inspired, tasty and well executed!

    I never cease to be amazed by the Cohen Family; their musicianship, the form and structure (and originality) of their pieces is a delight!
  6. African Daisy [La Suite African]
    by Avishai Cohen
    track 00:00/00:00
    A long track but never boring, in fact it fairly bristles with invention. Avishai is in a class of his own and, beautifully supported by Lionel Loueke and the band, turns this true suite into a real tour de force with the structure of a carefully composed concert piece!

    Avishai Cohen is the 'real deal' & not just as a Trumpet Master, his musicianship has the ring of genius!

  7. Song For Amos
    by Jason Lindner
    track 00:00/00:00
    A 'Modern Big Band', big in every department, talented young players, sound, precision, great arrangements and more than anything, a no nonsence approach to 'Swing' - The stuff that gets into your head and very quickly finds its' way to your feet!

    I love Big Band music music when it has this power!
  8. And The World Weeps
    by Anat Cohen
    Easy on the ear, easy on the eye, I love everything she does!

    Mr. Gordon is fantastic and conjures up some amazing and extreme (even for him) effects - This is a must-have track . Anat & Wycliffe; a wonderful combination that really works!

    The recording & mastering are superb and the seperation simply stunniing! Of course, Paquito D'Rivera is impeccable & tosses more than a few tasty phrases back to W.G. in much the same way Bird & Diz. did.

  9. In The Spirit of Baden
    by Anat Cohen
    Romero Lubambo: Guitar Is the icing on this cake. His subtle, sophiscated accompaniment is wonderfully constructed and seems a perfect marriage with Anat's vibrant and lucious timbre!

    It's not surprising that Anat is considered an honorary Brazilian, not to mention the fact that this is a real toe-tapper (both feet)!
  10. Cais
    by Anat Cohen
    A remarkable Artist from an equally remarkable musical family - Her playing recaptures the sheer joy of sound, melody and interpretation with extremely 'tasty' presentation: Her gorgeous tone on Bass Clarinet is extraordinary!
    Thank you, Anat.
  11. Blues For Pablo Too
    by Bernie McGann
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Deep Shallow Deep Shallow
    A'Hern & Bryant have done it agaiin! This recording is an 'object lesson' in how to present the Bass instrument, crisp, clear, woody and not lost somewhere in the background - Lloyd's playing is spell binding and the clarity beyond comparison. I like all the tracks but, for me, the Bass on 'Deep Shallow' is the stuff of goosebumps!

    The McGann / Alder unison lines are perfect, and the title track an indicatiion of the 'goodies in store; this recording does not disappoint anywhere, anyhow.
