USA: Andy Adamson Quintet-First Light(2017)

Andy Adamson Quintet | First Light


Adamson's quintet features his original compositions; everything they perform is drawn from Adamson's vast catalogue of original work that teems with exiting polyrhythms and richly contrasted harmonies.

Listeners will find driving freewheeling precision in his creative pen. Adamson's current band, featured on his latest album,First Light, includes Brennan Andes (acoustic and electric bass), known for his innovative bass work with the Macpodz, the Ragbirds, and Vincent York. Drummer Jonathan Taylor, who has studied with pianist Geri Allen and performed with trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith, is guided by what he calls a "cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary approach to improvisation". Ross Huff (trumpet), known for his hot trumpet work with the Macpodz and the Tone Farmers, joined the band near the end of the recording session and contributed a beautiful solo on Sunny Side Up. In addition to Adamson's fleet keyboard work, First Light provides a setting for the hard hitting, melodically inventive tenor saxophone playing of Dan Bennett, whose powerful tone and astonishing command of his instrument mesmerizes throughout. This is a tight quintet that has developed an intimate rapport. Adamson's compositions glow with a joy earned though decades of self-motivation and hard work. He's clearly in his element, collaborating with creative young musicians in music that is constantly being reinvented.

Jazz at the Maverick presents the CMS Improvisers Octet, exploring themes from some of Don Cherry’s visionary recordings as well as pieces by other composers that follow his lead into “world fusion.” The ensemble’s “In the Spirit of Don Cherry” performance will use pieces from these materials as launching pads for improvised interpretations that weave together jazz, world music and contemporary music.

During this period, he incorporated various ethnic styles into his playing and composing. Cherry, who died in 1995, was essential to the creation and development of the Creative Music Studio™.  He inspired many of its methodologies, taught many CMS workshops and founded his legendary group, Codona, at CMS. A suite of his is included in CMS Archive Project Selections Vol. 2, released last year.

HAITI: Johnbern Thomas Trio-Mesi, Merci, Thank You, Gracias(2017)

Johnbern Thomas Trio | Mesi, Merci, Thank You, Gracias
Johnbern THOMAS was born on August 1st, 1986 in Croix-des-Bouquets, a commune situated north of the capital of Haiti, a corner of the county where music is constantly in the lives of the residents. At a very young age, his father also a drummer gave him his first drumming lessons.
Born, in a family of evangelicals, Johnbern would have his first drumming experiences at age 12, playing with his father’s band . In school, he always got reprimanded because he wouldn’t stop beating drums on the benches and chairs. Johnbern, also plays other percussion instruments, but drums will always be his instrument of choice. After meeting several musicians well known in Haitian music scene his life changed and permitted him to veer towards other types of music, most notably Jazz. Other musicians such as Claude CARRE, Aaron GOLDBERG, Joel and Mushy WIDMAIER, Pierre BONCY, Mark Richard MIRAND gave him his love for Jazz.
Like many Haitians, after the January 12th, 2010 earthquake Johnbern was left with destruction and desolation. He left for the Dominican Republic where he continued to develop his talents especially in Jazz. He played with some renowned Dominican artist who recognized his talent. During his stay in the neighboring country, he cultivated relationships with artists such as: Miguel Andres TEJEDA, Fella VEGA, Rafael MIRABAL, and Sandy GABRIEL. One of these collaborations led to a turn in his career were he participated as a special guest with the Rafael Miral (Symtema Temporado) group, next to Richard Bona in October 2011. Since, he has formed the John Bern Quartet with Patrice PIERSAINT, Jonathan PINA and Reynold SANON. Their objective was to form a fusion with Haitian and Dominican music. Unfortunately, this collaboration didn’t last.
Upon returning to Haiti in January 2012, he founded the Johnbern Quintet this time with Herman DUVERNE, Marc-Harold PIERRE, Ferdinand JEAN BAPTISTE and Josué ALEXIS. Their first appearance was at the International Jazz Day on April 30, 2012. This presented a new generation of young talented Jazz artists. Also, this performance led to other events in the provinces of Haiti as well as, in the neighboring Santo Domingo Jazz Festival in July 2012 and the International Jazz Festival of Port-au-Prince (PAP Jazz) reinforced the determination of this young group of artists towards their goal.
John Bern represented Haiti in the USA in September 2012 in the cultural exchange program One Beat, a United of States State Department program. This activity permitted him to cross paths with several talented American musicians like Dafnis PIERTO, Dave DOUGLAS, Gregg AUGUSTE, Mark STEWART to name a few.
This successful cultural exchange permitted Johnbern to position his new trio, composed of two talented musicians, very active in the Haitian music world in Jazz, Junior DORCELUS (Guitar) and Hermand DUVERNE (Bass). This trio has confirmed with its numerous performances throughout the capital in clubs and restaurants that it is a premier in Jazz music.
It should be noted that in all the different participations of Johnbern in numerous cultural and artistic endeavours, notably Jazz Festivals in Martinique, USA, Vietnam, Surinam, Europe, Dominican Republic and Haiti. He has always been well received and has created a large following in these different countries.
As part of his musical career, Johnbern has also produced Jazz soirees. He is working on giving a voice to the youth and to promote Jazz in all its compositions and dimensions. He is a founder of the platform with Ralph Stephane MOMPEROUSSE, coordinator of this structure. They have already held several events and have received much press in the newspapers and social media.
Presently, John Bern just recorded his first album Johnbern THOMAS Trio. He collaborates with several big name local and international artists. This has already created a buzz on different media including social media. With this in mind, the artist continued to multiply his representations in Haiti and abroad with the intent of staying on the Jazz musical scene for the happiness of his fans.

Singer-pianist Daryl Sherman is returning to the award winning Greenwich  Village jazz club Mezzrow with rising star twin brothers Peter and Will Anderson on a variety of reed instruments.

As Daryl explains, "Peter and Will Anderson are mega talents I first performed with for an Artie Shaw tribute produced at 59E59 Theaters. I wish I were twins, but even just the three of us have drawn crowds at Knickerbocker, St Peter's Midday Jazz and concert venues. Eternal thanks to great hero/mentor Joe Temperley who inspired and encouraged my forays into piano/horn duo playing."

Manhattan favorite Daryl Sherman is no stranger to piano/ horn duo playing. Since her first outing with venerable baritone sax icon Joe Temperley, she's appeared with other luminaries including Houston Person and Warren Vache. Listeners have also been buzzing about her special teaming with Aussie born quickly rising star, Adrian Cunningham. Both Adrian, the Anderson Twins (and even Daryl on occasion) appear with Vince Giordano's Nighthawks, and David Ostwald's Louis Armstrong Eternity Band as well as their own groups. Their versatility with multiple instruments, genres and repertoire make a perfect match for Daryl's organic, charismatic and quirky style.

Daryl Sherman's CDs have been heard regularly on Cable TV Music Choice, Pandora, WNYC -FM, plus recent live interviews for her latest "My Blue Heaven" (Muzak) on WBGO "Singers Unlimited" and Tokyo's NHK-FM "Jazz Tonight".



USA: Ken Fowser - Now Hear This (Posi-Tone 2017)


Now Hear This!Celebrated tenor man Ken Fowser delivers an emphatic message of stunning melodicism on his latest release "Now Hear This!" Critical listeners may appreciate these performances as a series of engaged discussions employing the clever repartee of context and contrast between the voices of the horns and the affectionate support and retort from their favorite rhythm section of pianist Rick Germanson, bassist Paul Gill, and drummer Jason Tiemann. Bright moments are dénouement when trumpet phenomenon Josh Bruneau rejoins Fowser as his front line aide-de-cam and Fowser has noticeably shifted into another level. Together, this dynamic duo unleash a powerful combination of swinging blasts and forays into subtle conversation. If we overly focus on the interplay of elements, then we may miss the point of the dialogue and mistake the medium for the message, because Fowser's unmistakable talent as a songwriter is the real story here. From the opening salvo to the last hurrah, the melodic message of "Now Hear This!" moves effortlessly straightforward, and affirms that Fowser is a rising star to keep an eye on for many years to come.

DENMARK: Rudy Smith Quartet - Glass World(2017)

“Rudy Smith has created a marriage between the most important Afro Caribbean invention in the world of musical instruments, the steelpan, with the most important Afro American musical contribution, jazz. More than that, he has developed a solo style of steelpan playing, which is completely his own. His technique is dazzling. But it is not a matter of mere virtuosity. Rudy Smith’s playing bears the same mark of astonishing inventiveness that created the steelpan.” (Krister Malm)

UK: Denys Baptiste - The Late Trane (2017)

The Late Trane is the powerful and commanding new album from British saxophonist Denys Baptiste, a giant of the UK jazz scene. Reimagining and reworking ten carefully chosen composition from John Coltrane’s late music (from 1963 - 1967) with a fresh and modern new interpretation, The Late Trane perfectly balances Denys Baptiste’s unique artistic vision with the visceral emotions and cosmic references that encompasses Coltrane’s late music.

USA: Jill Seifers, Eeppi Ursin & Mika Pohjola-New York Jazz Vocals (2017)


American Broadway songs with a classy touch became the recognizable feature of vocalist Jill Seifers Walsh and pianist Mika Pohjola at the turn of the millenium. Walsh and Pohjola met in Boston in the early 90's, and started making frequent appearances with their repertory in New York City. This duo proudly performed classics by Cole Porter, Dmitri Tiomkin and Richard Rodgers, not to forget Elvis Costello. The repertoire contained songs which are forgotten by many of today's jazz musicians. It is the contrast between Walsh's heartfelt yet simple vocal stylings and Pohjola's lush harmonies which made this duo and this album particularly fresh and a truly special one. The renditions express masterful lyricism in music and words. Jill Seifers Walsh tragically died in December 2012.



USA: Peter Dominguez - Groove Dreams (OBERLIN 2017)
