Bob Dorough and Dave Frishberg (his co-leader on this CD) have a lot in common. Both are swinging pianists, likable vocalists that do not have conventional voices, and superb lyricists with very original wits. They only collaborated once before making this CD, writing "I'm Hip" back in 1965. In recent times Ruth Price of Los Angeles' Jazz Bakery persuaded the pair to perform as a duo and this live recording is the result. After an instrumental version of "Rockin' in Rhythm," Frishberg and Dorough perform a new classic by the former, "Who's on First," which deals with the difficulties of deciding who should perform first during their joint show! Frishberg "won" and he sings and plays the biting "Lookin' Good" which is about the advantages of being good-looking in this society.

There is plenty of diversity on this prime Dave Frishberg set. Four songs (including vocal versions of "Truckin'" and "&The Underdog") match Frishberg's piano with trombonist Bob Brookmeyer, tenor saxophonist Al Cohn, bassist Jim Hughart, and drummer Nick Ceroli. Frishberg takes "That Old Feeling," "You're a Lucky Guy" (which he sings), and "Cheerful Little Earful" as piano solos, and there are also three wonderful duets with Cohn. Only two of the ten songs were written by Frishberg, so the emphasis is on his talents as a pianist and singer rather than as a lyricist. Recommended.

Connie Evingson, who has recorded a number of CDs for her Minnehaha music label, is clearly deserving of wider recognition with this delightful Dave Frishberg songbook. Evingson captures the essence of Frishberg's lyrics, appropriately sassy in "Peel Me a Grape" (without overdoing it), delighting in the exotic "Zanzibar" (with Karr switching to flute), and swinging like mad in "Can't Take You Nowhere" (a signature lyric by Frishberg, a vocal adaptation of an old Tiny Kahn song called "T.N.T.").

The 2013 box set The Complete Remastered Recordings on Black Saint & Soul Note includes three of trumpeter Dave Douglas' albums with his String Group, as well as three albums by other artists on which he was featured. Included is 1993's Parallel Worlds, 1996's Five, and 1999's Convergence, as well as Rova's 1995 album John Coltrane's Ascension, bassist John Lindberg's 1998 release Bounce, and bassist Mark Dresser's 1994 album Force Green. With over six hours of music, this anthology compiles much of the genre-crossing, exploratory modern creative jazz that brought Douglas to the attention of the greater jazz community. With beautifully remastered sound, this Black Saint and Soul Note collection is a must-have for Douglas fans who have yet to discover this period of the prolific artist's career.

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.
