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...

Saudações
Egberto Gismonti

Fans of Egberto Gismonti probably expected him to play throughout his new two-CD set, but as with Meeting Point , Gismonti’s 1997 ECM outing featuring the Lithuanian State Symphony Orchestra, classical convention trumps jazz tradition. Gismonti is merely...

West of State Street/East of Harlem
John Burnett Swing Orchestra

Chicago bandleader/broadcaster John Burnett has switched labels on his second album in the past eight years, but the sound and personnel are very much as they were on his Swingin’ in the Windy City CD in 2000, reminiscent of the Basie Band and its contemporaries...

Where or When
Buselli-Wallarab Jazz Orchestra

Trombonist Brent Wallarab is a truly wondrous arranger, and together with trumpet/flugelhorn ace Mark Buselli, he co-leads a 12-piece band that wraps itself around each of his charts with luscious liquefaction. The B-W bandstand is also graced with half...

May 2009    Big Bands

One for Maynard
The Loudhorns

Pump up the volume! This debut CD packs enough brassy testosterone to heat up your subwoofer, thump your floorboards, scatter your pets and cause neighbors or idle passersby to gnash their teeth. Bandleader Joe Murphy has plenty bravado, exhorting band directors...

May 2009    Big Bands

Saxolollapalooza
Frank Macchia

If the Loudhorns are poised to go without sax, then reed fanatic Frank Macchia is willing to kiss his brass goodbye to achieve his muscular Saxolollapalooza sound. The project began in 1990 after Macchia bought himself a bass saxophone and had the notion...
