Guitarist Jeff Richman has enjoyed success on the jazz scene for nearly 35 years. His guitar playing is cited as tasteful and articulate, with room to breathe. He is recognized by and associated with the other luminaries of the fusion and contemporary jazz. His guitar is heard the world over. On this new release, his tone rises above with something unique that can't quite be described. It is the impression of a bare bones approach that has simplified his tone but made it gigantic.
Guitarist Jeff Richman, bassist Jimmy Haslip (taking a break from the Yellowjackets to play some fusion!) and drummer, Danny Gottlieb recorded live at the Baked Potato, in Hollywood CA, on Oct. 6 & 7 2000. Entirely instrumental, tasty, well played fusion from these three jazz/fusion veterans.
Jeff Richman's 15th solo release and delivers ten hard-hitting, playful compositions with catchy melodies and a refreshingly modern sound. Richman continues to shine in his ability to write music with creative intricacy and sophistication, articulating his individual point of view. This time around, his guitar tone is deeper, more resonant, robust and alive. Richman's style of playing complex changes fluidly over these infectious grooves will satisfy over many listenings.
“Pensar en nada” is the fifth studio album by the Argentine singer-songwriter León Gieco.
“Vivencia” is the disc that follows “Mi Cuarto” LP. I read somewhere in the network that after that LP (Mi Cuarto), they did not get better jobs … Hmmm, debatable.
“El Fantasma De Canterville” is the third album of study of the Argentine singer-songwriter León Gieco. It was released in 1976 by the label Music Hall.
David Chesky, born in Miami in 1956, settled in New York City in the 1970s and now identifies himself as an "urban orchestral composer." His Urban Concertos, of which he has written nearly a dozen, constitute his most substantial output. In the program notes for this recording of three of his concertos, he wrote, "Perhaps one can say my style is neo-impressionist. But I do not live on some quaint idyllic country farm, I live in the city that never sleeps! It is a hard-driving concrete jungle that pulsates around the clock." "Pulsating" is an apt descriptor for Chesky's music, which is notable for its restlessly high energy and rhythmic propulsiveness.
