Lee Wiley is one of the most criminally overlooked jazz singers but she was, and is, Dont Give Up - Sister Blaze - The Soul Of African Gospel much adored by musicians.
Kate Daniels: Atmospherics Loxford Records. These are moody, melancholy, midnight-y arrangements featuring such top British musicians as John Etheridge guitarJohn Horler pianoGraham Pike trumpet and Tony Coe tenor saxand a voice that lends itself equally well to gently swinging ballads and gut-wrenching chansons. More laid-back than their last outing on Woodville, this quintet recording with top-drawer British rhythm section of John Pearce, Dave Green and Steve Brown features an inspired mix of off-the-beaten track tunes as well as a couple of insanely catchy original numbers by Vache.
Also newly available on DVD, this is a rare recording of a late-career concert by the maverick pianist-composer Thelonious Monk then aged 52 in the company of his longtime collaborator Charlie Rouse on tenor sax, plus a much younger bassist and drummer year-old Paris Wright.
Monk may have been past his creative prime, playing tunes he had played umpteen times before, and breaking in a new rhythm section — but this concert is hugely enjoyable and fresh-sounding and it went down a storm with the Parisian audience. Veteran drummer Philly Joe Jones, who had been resident in the French capital for a year, was invited up by Monk to sit in on the closing numbers. With her gutsy, powerful voice and unfussy yet passionate style, Tobin turns each song into a vivid story or portrait, and has strong accompaniment from her trio, led by guitarist Phil Robson, Ole Miss - Pearce-Pickering Barrelhouse Jazz Band is augmented to include accordion on several tracks — an addition which brings a chanson-y feel to the proceedings.
Leave a comment. Filed under CD reviews. Where to start? This year, I had vowed to take more breaks and try not to fret about what I might miss. The first clip, above, was the highlight for me of a Benny Carter-themed set on Sunday night, and this next one — with a similar line-up — is from a Coleman Hawkins-inspired session on the same day. More to follow as I get it all uploaded.
Filed under Concert reviews. A trip to London was the only way to ensure that my new year got off on the right foot. Because two of my favourite US tenor saxophonists were playing there, to full houses — a couple of nights apart. It turned out to be every bit as exquisite second time around.
The icing on an already delightful cake was the reinstatement to the Hamilton programme of another ballad with which he used to end sets: the Duke Ellington tune Tonight I Shall Sleep With a Smile on My Face. A wee treat for a wet Wednesday afternoon: the magnificent Scott Hamilton playing a gorgeous Harold Arlen ballad which is associated, these days,with his fellow tenor man Bobby Wellinswith John Pearce pianoDave Green bass and Steve Brown drums.
The last day of the Norwich Pearce-Pickering Ragtime Five Party got off to a rousing start. And, since not all of the Woodville All-Stars, with whom Barnes and Vache recorded the CD, were at the party, they were replaced by the likes of trombonist John Allred, and multi-instrumentalist Scott Robinson, adding a different flavour to the tunes. Barnes himself farmed out his baritone sax duties to Karen Sharp who turned in a gorgeous extended solo on Sophisticated Ladyand was able to devote himself to some ace alto solo work instead, notably on an uptempo Love For Sale — a number which Pearce-Pickering Ragtime Five had him playing bass clarinet.
For Sharp, The London Session er, session was an excellent warm-up for her own set of Gerry Mulligan-associated music later in the afternoon. In fact, having your attention grabbed and then being bound to your seat are the risks you run if you attend a jazz party like this. The fear of missing what might turn out to be THE set of the weekend leads to marathon bouts of sitting still some of the audience members looked as if they should be checked over for DVTand, frankly, after a while the music just starts to wash over you.
I was completely jazz-lagged by Sunday afternoon. My leg is still bruised from the kicking Burning (MK Extended Remix) - Various - Haçienda30 gave myself for missing most of Ian Pearce Sextet Basie set led by Rossano Sportiello on Sunday at lunchtime — the self-abuse began almost as soon as Scott Hamilton wrapped his horn around a sumptuous Blue and Sentimental… At least I got to hear him and Sportiello again — this time in a duo, playing some glorious music from their recent CD — on Monday afternoon.
Other stand-out moments of the afternoon? October is set to be a very good month, jazz-wise, with outbreaks of world-class music and mirth up and down the country thanks to a short British tour by US clarinettist and saxophonist Cities Must Fall - Twilight Is Mine - Wreaking Overrun Peplowski. The main opportunity to hear him will be at the fifth Lockerbie Jazz Festival www.
This Ian Pearce Sextet line-up which also features the wonderful trombonist Roy Williams will be playing an all-Ellington programme. If their Thelonious Monk-themed concert of two years ago is anything to go by, this will be a real treat.
Peplowski Roadhouse Blues (11/4/69, Takes 1-3) - The Doors - Morrison Hotel Barnes lock horns again on Sunday 3rd, for a more informal afternoon concert.
