  • Ugly Beauty: The Month In Jazz – September 2019 10.31.19

    A really cool set of reissues came out this month, too, from a pianist who’s revered in certain circles but whose legacy isn’t what it should be. Erroll Garner was a hugely successful pianist and composer of the standard “Misty”; his 1955 album Concert By The Sea was massive at the time, and was reissued as a three-CD set in 2015.

  • Hear “Paris Mist” from a New Reissue Series Celebrating the Legacy of Piano Master Erroll Garner 10.31.19

    But “Misty” was hardly Garner’s only career milestone. In 1947, shortly after leaving his native Pittsburgh for New York, he appeared on early recordings by Charlie Parker. And his 1955 live album, Concert By The Sea, became the first jazz recording to register more than $1 million in sales. He was a virtuosic and talented performer with a lively following of fans and passionate admirers, and his style has been praised, emulated and adored by countless musicians — Geri Allen and Dick Hyman were particularly keen enthusiasts.

  • Hear a Taste of Erroll Garner at the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair, From a Deluxe New Reissue Series 10.31.19

    This was the third release on Octave Records, which Garner had established with his manager, Martha Glaser. Originally distributed by Philips, it has never had a fully dedicated reissue.

    That’s about to change, thanks to the Octave Remastered Series. A joint initiative of Mack Avenue Records and the Erroll Garner Jazz Project, it’s a batch of reissues spanning Garner’s total output on Octave: 12 albums from the 1960s and ‘70s. The first four — along with One World Concert, they include Dreamstreet, Closeup in Swing and A New Kind of Love — land on Sept. 27.

  • The ‘Confessions’ of Veronica Swift 10.11.19

    The new album by self-assured 25-year-old jazz singer Veronica Swift begins with an auspicious announcement of sorts: “I may be unknown, but wait till I’ve flown,” she confides over a delicate, insinuating piano introduction. “You’re gonna hear from me.”

  • Premiere: The Soul Rebels Dish On ‘Real Life’ In New Video 09.12.19

    New Orleans brass ensemble The Soul Rebels are gearing up to release a brand new full-length album, titled Poetry In Motion, on October 25. To aid in its promotional efforts, the group is premiering a second new single and its accompanying music video, directed by Leff at Vincent Lou Films.

  • Artist Spotlight: Veronica Swift 08.19.19

    This rising vocalist is following the family path—while exploring her own style.

  • Artist Feature: Veronica Swift 08.19.19

    Swift has just turned 25 and has already had a full and important career to which other performers would aspire. Confession, her latest album and Mack Avenue debut is due out at the end of August, with pianists Benny Green and Emmet Cohen’s trios.

  • ‘Gratitude’ CD Review 08.19.19

    On his latest album, Gratitude, Cole offers thanks for the people who’ve helped see him through some of his tough times – the loved ones, the musicians and collaborators who rallied around, and the often-nameless professionals whose job is to help and to heal.

  • Saxophonist Steve Cole to Release New Album “Gratitude” on July 26th, 2019 08.19.19

    Saxophonist Steve Cole Shows Appreciation for Supporters with Healing Energy on Gratitude, Co-Produced by Longtime Collaborator David Mann

  • The Soul Rebels Bring the Bounce With Big Freedia-Assisted ‘Good Time’ Video: Premiere 08.13.19

    As New Orleans natives, The Soul Rebels naturally know how to have a good time. With the brass band heading for the release of their Poetry in Motion album this fall, the eight-piece ensemble teams with a couple of fellow Big Easy residents in Denisia and bounce pioneer Big Freedia for the sun-drenched "Good Time" visual.

  • Julian Lage: Love Hurts 05.21.19

    Julian Lage is a tremendously talented acoustic guitarist and by all accounts a polite, mild mannered kind of guy. Though this might not be the whole story. The cover picture of his album is of twenty used matches, which is thought to refer to his worries of becoming burnt-out after being hailed as a child prodigy then burdened with the lofty expectations of his admirers. 

  • Jazz Organ Master Joey DeFrancesco Collaborates with Pharoah Sanders on ‘In the Key of the Universe” 05.21.19

    The first track on the latest recording from Joey DeFrancesco is what you might expect from the organ expert and swinging veteran. "Inner Being" is a graceful, upbeat tune that layers DeFrancesco's organ colors with both Sammy Figueroa's percussion and the organic drumming of veteran Billy Hart. The passages of the composition in which the organ plays in melodic sync with the soprano saxophone of Troy Roberts (the native of Perth, Australia who has made New York his home in recent years) are lovely, launching an engaging set of solos...
