Contemporary jazz singer/guitarist Bobby Caldwell was born August 15, 1951, in Manhattan, NY; his parents, Bob and Carolyn, were the hosts of the television variety show Suppertime and exposed the child to a wide variety of musical influences. Caldwell began studying piano and guitar at age 12; he initially pursued a career in rock & roll but was equally adept at playing jazz and R&B and at 17 took his band on the road to play the Las Vegas circuit.

Curtis Stigers & Danish Radio Big Band - One More for the Road (2017) {Concord Music}

Jazz, Smooth Jazz, Swing | Label: Concord Music Group

Jazz-rooted former pop singer Curtis Stigers has made a fine homage to Frank Sinatra’s 1966 Sinatra at the Sands album with Count Basie’s orchestra, recorded live as the original was. Stigers is much more gruff and rugged than a smoothie like Michael Bublé, as hip in his timing as Kurt Elling, if not as unpredictable – and he could hardly be in more cracking company than the Danish Radio Big Band, which catches the punchy Basie sound and the twists of Quincy Jones’s arrangements with immense aplomb.

One of the best composers and arrangers to emerge during the bop era, though not often ranked as high as he should be, Jimmy Heath proves his worth with this pair of studio sessions. Although Heath takes a few strong solos of his own, he primarily focuses on the abilities of the strong cast assembled for each date. "Big P" is a potent opening blues dedicated to Percy Heath (his late brother and the bassist for nearly the entire history of the Modern Jazz Quartet)…

Respecting the work's spiritual message and musical architecture, Christophe Dal Sasso's arrangement of A Love Supreme is faithful to the fervent spirit of John Coltrane's music. The thematic underpinning of A Love Supreme is a personal struggle for purity, and it expresses the artist's deep gratitude as he admits that his talent is not owned not by him but by a higher power. In the capable hands of Dal Sasso and the legendary Belmondo brothers, Lionel and Stephane, A Love Supreme still resounds fifty years later with an emotional force that borders on the eternal.

Put on your dancing shoes and jive the night away. Standards like In the Mood and When the Saints Come Marching In will put a new lift in your step. Instrumentation includes saxophones, trumpets, trombones, French horn, piano, guitar, bass & drums. When I was a kid, back in the '60's, my dad listened to a group of records called "The Swing Era"… I believe from Time-Life. I grew up loving the swing rhythms and stylings of "Little Brown Jug", "Take The 'A' Train, and "Chattanooga Choo-Choo" as they popped and hissed out of our giant console stereo. I've tried digitally remastered versions of the originals, like "Glenn Miller-A Memorial", but have always been disappointed by, well, the pops and hiss, and the generally low fidelity that these great old songs were recorded with… not their fault! But "In The Big Band Mood" faithfully recaptures the music in new recordings by Michael Maxwell and his orchestra, and their rendition of what I consider to be one of the most perfect pieces of music of all time - "In The Mood" - is excellent. I highly recommend this album!

Javier Botella gathers those velvety nuances and all the refinement of the themes of that time to adapt them to his voice and personality, as if a contemporary crooner was. COPA ILLUSTRATED is a classical formation: double bass, drums, piano, saxophone, trumpet, trombon and voice,
In which each of its members brings experience, know-how. And musical and vital trajectory to a common project where the fundamental meeting point is the passion for quality music. The elegance of the chosen repertoire is another point of cohesion, and of enjoyment. It sounds round, with a lot of swing!

Tim Davies, who led a big band in his native Australia before relocating to Los Angeles in 2000, reprises that experience on parts of The Expensive Train Set, returning home to supervise his Melbourne ensemble on four selections, presiding over his Los Angeles-based band on four others, and somehow managing to blend the two groups together as one on the ambitious title song, which Davies calls "the centerpiece of the album," as well it should be. Whereas Davies' previous album, Dialmentia, was focused in part on his recurring nightmares, Train Set undrapes a more amiable theme, the singular experience of becoming a father, as Davies recently did. In fact, the opening number, "Conceivilization," is arranged to depict in musical terms how shall we say this? the act of making love, with two soloists in each movement playing the part of the lovers. Be sure not to miss the exciting climax!
