Radio Music Scoiety
Esperanza Spalding

Let the wailing and hand-wringing begin. The phenomenal young jazz bassist/singer/arranger/producer, who scored an upset victory over Justin Bieber in taking the Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 2011, now has a follow-up to the CD that cemented her stature...

Because She Hoped
Benoît Delbecq/François Houle

Parisian pianist Benoît Delbecq and Canadian clarinetist François Houle don’t collaborate very often. Their three Songlines recordings span 14 years, with their previous summit meeting, Dice Thrown , released in 2002. Yet they remain resolutely exploratory...

Mischief & Mayhem
Jenny Scheinman

Jenny Scheinman always makes her next move a guessing game. The mercurial fiddler telegraphed this one when her Mischief & Mayhem quartet played the Village Vanguard in July 2010, adjourning to a Brooklyn recording studio with guitarist Nels Cline, bassist...

Shut Up and Dance
Orchestre National de Jazz

With frequently changing personnel and leadership, ONJ has been remarkably chameleonic during its 25 years, sometimes, as when Paolo Damiani was at the helm for Charmediterranéen in 2003, veering from idiom to idiom as we moved from track to track. The French...

Organic
Ehud Asherie

After three releases on Posi-Tone leading small combos from the piano, 31-year-old Israeli native Ehud Asherie switches over to Hammond organ for his latest quartet outing, Organic. Fats Waller and Count Basie come readily to mind as jazz immortals who doubled...

Welcome to New York
Ehud Asherie

On Welcome to New York, his first-ever solo-piano collection, Asherie’s mastery of various masters’ styles, from Waller and Tatum and Dave McKenna on down, puts him in the elite group of heritage pianists who rode in on the wave of Wynton Marsalis traditionalism...

Smiles
Terry Myers

With his smooth, mellow-toned lucidity, tenor saxophonist Terry Myers evokes memories of swing-era stalwarts Bud Freeman and Budd Johnson. But when he lathers up—or pulls out his soprano sax—the thrust and grit of Zoot Sims come to mind. The fun begins as...

Incorrigible
One For All

If the titles of this sextet’s recent discs for Sharp Nine, The Lineup and Return of the Lineup , suggested that the group was in a creative rut, fans can rest assured that this first effort on their new label isn’t a desperate flailing around for fresh...
