Love Jazz, well crafted songs with lyrics, some Soul, some Classic Rock and a little bit of everything else. Re-building a vinyl collection after I had gotten rid of it years ago. Love travelling to various venues in support of my wife Lili who is a singer-songwiriter with an emphasis towards Jazz and has a top notch band.

    Saw Christian and his band last night in Philly. Blown away! Did a killer version of Herbie Hancock's Eye Of The Hurricane. Nice guy too, very personable. Came to our table after the show. This will no doubt be another stellar album. Looking forward to hearing the rest of it.
  2. Self-Identity
    by Ollie Howell
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Rise and Fall Rise and Fall
    Strip away the electronics and effects and you have a cohesive sextet playing some very interesting straight ahead jazz. Ollie Howell has put together a first rate band for this project. When it comes to jazz it's easy to cover the American songbook of standards. It takes a special talent to write original music and do it well. Ollie has done that very thing and has a big career ahead.
  3. Another Place, Another Time

    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Another Place, Another Time Another Place, Another Time
    This 6-track EP is a joy. The title track is a brilliant Brazilian style exercise in musical coolness. Larry McKenna hits all the right notes! Should get a Grammy nomination for best Jazz song. I Don't Care is a whimsical, feel good song with a catchy chorus. It's Nobody's Fault is an old Blind Willie Johnson tune with a very modern take. The 2 ballads are stunning! Traffic Jam is hip and edgy.Lili's best work so far! UPDATE- 2017 LIVE SHOWS WITH LILI & HER BAND ARE KILLER!!!
  4. The Mood
    by Maurice Brown
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Moroccan Dancehall Moroccan Dancehall
    I got hip to Maurice Brown hearing the song Time Tick Tock in 2010 on Sirius XM. The Cycle Of Love is an Incredible album that I played repeatedly! This latest one he is firing on all cylinders. The triple threat of Moroccan Dancehall, Shenanigans and Capricorn Rising compelled me to buy this album. Wow! The horn section is a powerhouse force. With each listen the album gets more infectious. Not a huge rap fan, but it sits well with this recording.
  5. Søren Bebe Trio - "A Song For You"
    by Søren Bebe Trio
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Country Road Country Road
    My wonderful sister-in-law, who is a classically trained pianist, turned me on to Soren's music. This trio eloquently invokes an emotion that puts you in a good place. Soren's playing is front and center and his delivery is beautifully executed. I am delighted to have been exposed to a master pianist at the top of his game. Very well done! Looking forward to the CD.
  6. I Close My Eyes
    by Hauschka
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Can You Dance For Me Can You Dance For Me
    I love the simplicity as this is a contrast from his other recordings. I was able to find the latest release "What If" on vinyl and that too is brilliant for what it is with electronics and prepared piano. This one is Hauschka as the pure pianist on most tracks. Haunting, beautiful compositions. Has anyone noticed that song titles form sentences. I Am Walking From House to House To An Empty Mall. Can You Dance For Me Into The Dawn. etc.
  7. Nubya's 5ive
    by Nubya Garcia
    featured track 00:00/00:00
    Lost Kingdoms Lost Kingdoms
    Well, it's obvious that Nubya Garcia is on to something by how fast the first vinyl pressing sold out. 2 Days! I pre-ordered the second pressing and it will well be worth the wait. Nubya leads a very tight sounding band. New and traditional at the same time. Very easy to fall in love with this sound.
  8. Fly or Die

    theme 001 theme 001
    This album had me from "Jump Off". It's a sorta contemporary "Bitches Brew" without being a copy. It took one listen through to know I had to have this in my collection. The pigeon shit vinyl is a beautiful disc! Leaves of Glass has some very cool layering. Love the Free Jazz style and all the noisy, fabulous touches of sound. This is Jaimie's Cinderella Rocky story and not only does the music fly it soars very high! Excellent production!
  9. Homegrown
    by Jason Parker Quartet
    featured track 00:00/00:00
    Snickerdoodle Fritz Snickerdoodle Fritz
    Straight ahead, staying true to tradition. Jason Parker's trumpet playing is spot on. All original tunes. Any serious Jazz fans should appreciate the tunes on this album. Excellent!
  10. I Can See Bliss From Here
    by Lili Anel
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Something To Do Something To Do
    Talk about vocals. Wow, what a voice! Beautifully crafted songs and a gifted writer of lyrics. Incredible blend of contemporary jazz, vocal jazz, soul and blues. Love "Something To Do" with its Latin Jazz feel. Blindsided #2 has a great trumpet solo. Then there's the beautiful lyrics of "Best Part Of Me", sounding personal and a song every parent can relate to. Kudos to the producers of this album! Love the artwork too.
  11. Fantastic Pictures
    by Pugs and Crows
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    We Must Befriend The Ice Queen We Must Befriend The Ice Queen
    This is Fantastic music! It won the 2013 Canadian JUNO award for BEST INSTRUMENTAL ALBUM! It's a hybrid of sorts, a little Jazz, a little Rock, a little Classical and layers of extremely fun experimentation. The songs written by guitarist Cole Schmidt, are energetic, colorful and original. Cat Toren, who I have become a fan of recently, is the pianist in this fine ensemble. I was able to find it on vinyl and looking forward to that!
