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.

The liner notes for Urban Grooves describe Joe Chambers as "a good jazz drummer." Actually, he's more than good; he's an excellent jazz drummer who also knows his way around the vibraphone and the marimba. Not every album that Chambers has appeared on is great, but his skills as a musician certainly are. One thing Chambers isn't, however, is a terribly forceful drummer; he knows when to hold back. Chambers doesn't have quite as gentle a touch as Shelly Manne, but he isn't as aggressive as Art Blakey or Art Taylor either. Recorded in March 2002 – when Chambers was three months away from his 60th birthday – Urban Grooves underscores his intuitive, insightful nature. This acoustic-oriented post-bop date finds Chambers leading an all-star quintet that boasts Gary Bartz on alto and soprano sax, Eric Reed on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and Bobby Sanabria on percussion – and Chambers.
