To hear many hard bop hard-liners tell it, all avant-garde jazz is nothing more than atonal screaming. The problem with such sweeping generalizations is that some avant-garde jazz is, in fact, quite musical. A perfect example is Dave Douglas' Convergence, an experimental, adventurous outing that incorporates everything from classical and chamber music to Jewish, Middle Eastern, and East European music.

There is indeed a spirit that moves through Dave Douglas' first Brass Ecstasy recording: the late Lester Bowie. Bowie's Brass Fantasy group cut a few compelling albums that combined cover versions of all sorts of music – as well as originals – that were arranged for a brass orchestra. The most famous of these, The Great Pretender, is an obvious model for Douglas on this outing. The four brass players include Vincent Chancey on French horn, Luis Bonilla on trombone, Marcus Rojas playing the tuba, and Douglas, of course, on trumpet.

With the spectacular river gorge as the backdrop, Dave Matthews Band took their final bow of the 2016 tour at the Gorge Amphitheatre before heading into an extended hiatus. The weekend, which has been affectionately dubbed “Labor Dave Weekend,” was full of incredible energy and solid performances that covered the breadth of the band’s catalogue. This show from September 4th kicked off with “The Stone,” complete with an audience sing-along, and ended with a two-song encore of “Pig” and “Stay (Wasting Time).” Special guests included Carlos Malta on woodwinds on “Say Goodbye,” “The Maker,” and “Typical Situation,” while touring crew member Joe Lawlor played guitar on a fiery performance of “Rhyme & Reason."

Dave Douglas is a prolific trumpeter, composer and educator from New York City. This album is dedicated to his older brother, Damon, who died of cancer in June 2015; and among its 11 tracks are two of the most beautiful hymns in the book, "Deep River" and "A Balm in Gilead", both played with passion, grace, and horn harmonies reminiscent of "Abide with Me" on Monk's Music. "Brazen Heart" contains a familiar, but increasingly sophisticated mix of post-bop reveries, virtuosic dazzlers, and lilting ballads. And, as with most Douglas albums, the sound quality is superb.

In April 2007, Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds embarked on a 3-city theatre tour, culminating with a performance in the intimate confines of Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Due to the smaller sized venues and extremely limited number of dates, tickets were practically impossible to get, making this set all the more desirable to the huge Dave Matthews Band fanbase. Live At Radio City marks the first time in almost ten years that Dave and Tim have released an album. Live At Radio City features over 2 1/2 hours of music, capturing all 26 songs of Dave and Tim's performance. The performance includes numerous songs that have never been recorded by the two, including Crush, Grace Is Gone, Don't Drink The Water, Gravedigger and many more.

This radio broadcast of a 1982 Montreux Jazz Festival set featuring the Dave Brubeck Quartet has been issued by a number of different European bootleg labels, all with excellent sound but one glaring error: labeling the pianist's "(Open the Gates) Out of the Way of the People" as "Improvisation." In spite of its sketchy origin, this CD contains an excellent, well-recorded set of music, featuring clarinetist Bill Smith in one of his earliest appearances as a full-time member of the group in the early '80s after he replaced tenor saxophonist Jerry Bergonzi. Brubeck is clearly inspired by his reunion with his old friend (who was a part of the pianist's early octet and also took Paul Desmond's place on a pair of Brubeck albums decades earlier).
