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.").

Obray Ramsey and Byard Ray were a country music duo called White Lightnin'. After the group recorded a debut for ABC Records, they moved to Polydor and released Fresh Air, with help from Russel George, Eric Anderson, and Judy Collins among many. This was their last album, unfortunate since they were very good.

Jazz, Vocal Jazz | Label: Revemusic

This is not so much a jazz album as it is an intimate pairing of like-minded musicians performing as they might do for a few friends in their living room. Heather Keizur is a new name to me but she demonstrates skill and frankly, a lot of caring in the nine selections heard here. Interestingly, four of them are in French and she handles the language with ease, and often with passion. I was especially enamored with her version of the Jacques Brel tune “Ne Me Quitte Pas,” also known as “If You Go Away.”

A superb singer, with a very peculiar feeling for melodic performances. Yana Purim is reaching new heights in her special ability to create irresistible samples of jazzy Brazilian music and Braziliany jazz. With this new album, “Harvest Time”, Yana ceases to be a promising talent to become definitely recognized as a mature artist, one of the most expressive talents that emerged from the contemporary Brazilian musical scene.

All the Things We Are is a bit unusual in the Dave Brubeck discography. The pianist is heard in a quartet with altoist Lee Konitz on "Like Someone in Love" and a brief "Don't Get Around Much Anymore," with avant-garde giant Anthony Braxton (also on alto) featured on "In Your Own Sweet Way," while both Konitz and Braxton team up for "All the Things You Are." In addition, the Brubeck Trio (with bassist Jack Six and drummer Alan Dawson) plays an exquisite and frequently exciting 21-minute, five-song "Jimmy Van Heusen Medley." A total success, this "experimental" Brubeck set is highly recommended.

Though a legendary figure from his monumental contributions to the clarinet and soprano saxophone's role in jazz, it was the compositions of Sidney Bechet that inspired master saxophonist David Liebman and guitarist John Stowell to dig deep into his catalog to compile and explore this set of rarely heard gems. Each possessing singular voices themselves that have inspired generations of other performers, Liebman & Stowell have created a very personal and intimate duo project celebrating another giant's work, their conversations making for compelling listening.

This outstanding edition features drum giant Dave Bailey's complete One & Two Feet In. The Gutter Sessions for the first time ever on one release. Bailey's July 19 & 20, 1960 One Foot In The Gutter Session also produced the track Brownie Speaks, which until now has only been released on a Columbia sampler LP. This edition marks the first time that the complete One Foot In The Gutter session is released on one edition and the first time that this version of Brownie Speaks, as well as Epic's phenomenal Getting' Into Somethin' LP, are available on CD. The LP Two Feet In The Gutter completes Dave Bailey's Epic discography, all of which can be found on this release.
