Matt Marshak’s 5th major release and first concept album celebrates the late night experience, where city streets merge with a soulful vibe long after the work day is long over… where after parties begin to bustle to jazz grooves for an urbane mood.

I m confident that Urban Folktales will be regarded as one of the top contemporary jazz CDs of 2011. This is the Matt Marshak you ve been waiting for. Absolutely stunning. Brian Soergel, JazzTimes There s no denying Matt Marshak s mastery of the contemporary jazz format, as he lays down original, stylish guitar licks with shades of the blues, rock, pop, soul and of course jazz. On April 1, 2011, Marshak returns with his freshest and cohesive work to date with Urban Folktales (Nuance Music Group). It s his sixth major release and bound to be on Top 10 lists. It's my first theme record, one that sticks to the same vibe from top to bottom, says Marshak.

Matt Marshak's New York captures the many sides of this diverse one of a kind guitar player. He is 100% live in the studio with a great band behind him. It's jazzy, rootsy, soulful, funky, and groovin'. Sean Michael Ray is on Bass, Carl Anderson on drums, Benjie Porecki on keys. The opening track North Carolina conjures up imagery of a dusty southern road with a Church house on the hill, Real Music is just that–good ol' real music with a live band–no drum machines, samples, loops, etc. Lookin' Back has a funky jazz groove reminiscent of the 1970's. There's also the rockin' On My Way and the dedication to BB King entitled Blues for BB.

Matt Marshak brings his strongest and most honest release to date. Lifestyle is inspired by the Golden Era of contemporary jazz and R&B (late 1970's-80s), and artists such as George Benson, Larry Carlton, James Brown, David Sanborn, Prince, BB King to name a few. Organic production, absolutely no drum machines or drum loops, spontaneity, improvisation, and a human element all give the listener reassurance that this record is rooted in tradition of jazz and groove music.

There were times when big bands were a defining part of our society´s musical cultural scene. Today only a few jazz big bands exist, and it appears the reasons for this change are not artistic, but rather financial. In Germany public radio stations are responsible for the funding of big bands, and in France the Orchestre National de Jazz sets the standard. Meanwhile in Austria, one ensemble has shown above all others that orchestral concepts are far from exhausted: the JBBG - Jazz Bigband Graz.

Some things just get better with time. Red wine and self-confidence, for instance, or Matt Bianco. The legendary British group, named after an imaginary Sixties superspy in the Eighties, is adored around the world for hits like "Half A Minute", "Get Out Of Your Lazy Bed", "Whose Side Are You On?", or "Yeh Yeh". For their fifteenth album "Gravity", front-man, vocalist and songwriter Mark Reilly recruited a superb new band featuring Swedish sax- and flute-star Magnus Lindgren and a large chunk of Jamie Cullum's group. Their mission: reviving and modernizing Matt Bianco's Bossa- and Jazz-roots, while keeping the easy going swing of former successes, built around the singularly recognizable Dry-Martini-voice of Mark Reilly. The result is an energetic, yet relaxed collection of ten original songs, with enough gravity to please their most sophisticated admirers and plenty of new fans, who might have been bitten by the Jazz-bug via a Gregory Porter or Jamie Cullum.

Genre: Avant-Garde Jazz

A Pouting Grimace is the audacious new release from pianist/composer Matt Mitchell, whose prior release Vista Accumulation (Pi 2015) The New York Times calls “a bold signature” that “simmers with deep intensity.” Not only is he one of the most in-demand pianists in jazz – Mitchell plays in bands such as Tim Berne’s Snakeoil, Steve Coleman’s Natal Eclipse, the Dave Douglas Quintet, John Hollenbeck’s Large Ensemble, Jonathan Finlayson’s Sicilian Defense, Rudresh Mahanthappa’s Birdcalls, and David Binney’s Quartet — he has established himself as a composer of bold distinction. Substantial in scope, the album, which features twelve musicians: five woodwinds, four percussionists, harp, bass, and the leader on piano, Prophet 6, and electronics, weaves an intricate web of off-kilter rhythms and logical frenzy. Produced by the acclaimed guitarist/composer David Torn, the work is completely beyond genre, a daring tour de force that headily mines the interstice between precision-plotted compositions and the thrill of improvisation.

Esoteric Egyptologists remind us that hieroglyphics are not simply a primitive form of writing, but rather contain an entirely higher form of resonant meaning. Schwaller de Lubicz said, "Each heiroglyphic can have an arrested, conventional meaning for common usage, but it includes all the ideas that can be connected to it as well as the possibility of personal comprehension." This I think, is the essence of Matt Lavelle's music. Fear Has Got to Go is a case in point.
