Sun Ra Centennial Arkestra to Release Live Album

Performance documents 2014 tour

By JazzTimes

The Sun Ra Centennial Arkestra, under the direction of Marshall Allen, will release Live at the Babylon (In+Out Records, Sept. 4), the only live recording from the group’s 2014 Centennial Dream Arkestra tour. The album was recorded at Istanbul's Babylon music club, marking the hundredth birthday of the Arkestra's founder, Sun Ra.

According to a press release, Live at the Babylon is “an aural illustration of the enthusiasm of the brothers Mehmet and Ahmet Uluğ,” two “tenacious Sun Ra fans … who wanted to bring the Sun Ra Arkestra to Istanbul for the first time since 1990.” The pair drove the band on a flatbed trailer down the arterial road to Taksim Square and the nearby concert hall they had booked. “The unusual promotion campaign drew thousands of curious spectators,” the release reports. “Sun Ra's blessing turned out to be fruitful with the concert being a great success. In consequence, the Uluğ brothers founded the music promotion enterprise Pozitif and later on the Babylon. An Istanbul myth had come to life. Therefore, this CD/DVD special edition is dedicated to the late Mehmet Uluğ, whose untimely death occurred in 2012.”

GILAD HEKSELMAN TRIO: HOMES
The Gilad Hekselman Trio's new recording, Homes, fills you with quiet enthusiasm. You listen to it - or rather experience it as a contemplative contrast to the artist's complex identity in a globalized world: identification with his origins, the variety of places he has lived and worked, his musical models and influences, his place among family and friends, and his place within the history of his art. This recording reflects Gilad's relationships with his many homes; physical, geographic, musical and spiritual.

With this opus 5 (on JazzVillage, distributed by harmonia mundi) the six-string prince is celebrating a dozen years since his arrival in New York City, and also a decade of making music with his bandmates, double-bass player Joe Martin, and drummer Marcus Gilmore. The triumvirate is featured on Gilad's Words Unspoken, Hearts Wide Open and This Just In. On these essential recordings, and now with Homes, one could find abundant evidence that these formidable musicians form the ideal trio.

TENDER TRIO SUITE
Homes is a true suite in musical terms: the prelude is repeated in the finale and the twelve tracks pass through a number of diverse moods. The dominant feeling is one of great tenderness. That is no doubt the keyword for this CD - and there is a story behind it.

In 17th century Paris, the first feminist writers invented an imaginary "geography of love" map. On their wonderful "Carte du Tendre" (the Tenderness Map, a huge publishing success at the time), the heart and body were depicted as countries, emotions as rivers, various stages of love were cities, and passion, a wild sea. In the same way Homes is the intimate mapping of a young musician on the threshold of a musical zenith, who loves life and love as much as the music and instrument he plays - you feel that all of this mingles easily within this artist.

One piece, "Verona", is actually dedicated to the city of Romeo and Juliet near Venice and the mythical "home" of all lovers. Full of contrast, this piece really develops like a love affair, alternating gentleness with exaltation. It is also a fine example of the impressive cohesion of a trio establishing itself as one of the very best in jazz today.

THE TRIO
Virtuoso Joe Martin, with his powerful, woody sound, was the pillar of the Mingus Big Band (a supreme honor he fully deserved), prior to revealing his talent as a composer on the album, "Not by Chance", recorded with Brad Mehldau, Chris Potter and Marcus Gilmore. In addition to his essential participation in this trio, he also holds the bass chair in Anat Cohen's Quartet, Mark Turner's Quartet, and is simply one of the most sought-after bassists on the NYC scene.

Marcus Gilmore is the grandson and fortunate heir of Roy Haynes, one of the last of the great historic jazz drummers - still active at 90 years of age. In both men can be found the same miraculously magical balance between cymbals and skins, as well as the same ability to shape and color music that can conjur gasps and other communiqué of delight from audiences.

But if we really want to find models for Gilad Hekselman's trio, we look at those of Ahmad Jamal, Bill Evans or Keith Jarrett whom Gilad listened to so much. Over the years, the fusional human and musical relationship they developed and the exceptional interplay they achieved, are precisely what make the biblically accented lament, "Eyes to See", so marvelous.

GILAD HEKSELMAN AND THE MUSIC ON HOMES
In New York jazz clubs or anywhere else in the world, bebop, three-quarters of a century after it was invented in Manhattan, remains the trial by fire for young jazz players. It's a sport: get it wrong and you risk losing face. Just listen to Bud Powell's "Parisian Thoroughfare", because when it comes to bebop, Gilad Hekselman and his friends are serious customers, as Parisian jazz-speak has it. Gilad's trio provides a joyously exhilarating version of this piece. You can just imagine the exchange of knowing glances between them: besides the fact Gilad says that Paris is one of his favorite cities, this track is a pinnacle of controlled speed and a high point on the album.

There are other very different tracks which reveal a more "psychedelic" side to Gilad's playing; Jimi Hendrix inevitably comes to mind listening to "Space" and "Cosmic Patience", together a sort of day-dreamy waltz of the cosmos, deceptively slow and quiet and which wildly take off at the end.

To those who have compared him, often wrongly, to Pat Metheny, Gilad Hekselman has a fine retort; his spare and graceful "Last Train Home" (a duo with special guest Jeff Ballard) is without a doubt the best performance as yet recorded.

Gilad Hekselman's guitar style is extremely varied, reflecting his career. We can hear him "naked", ideally sober, in "Home E Minor", a solo worthy of the classical guitar greats. This also reminds us that, for a musician, a key (in this case E minor) can in itself be a "home".

Among his musical "Homes", there is Africa. It is there in the title "KeeDee", which is the central drum used by people from southern Ghana and Togo. Like the three musketeers who were really four, Jeff Ballard comes in to wind up the trio on "KeeDee", and it ends in fireworks. Brad Mehldau's drummer (and before that drummer with Ray Charles then with Metheny) has enormous fun with Marcus Gilmore.

Brazil is there too, mixing in more discreetly. With impressive counterpoint artistry, the trio surpasses itself in an overwhelming performance of a bossa nova masterpiece, "Samba em Preludio": magical music by Baden Powell to a poem by the "Rimbaud of Rio", Vinicius de Moraes. Nobody has ever sung better of love at a distance.

Here we are, back again at the heart of the "Tenderness Map", the geography of love which definitely seems to be the theme of this CD: a universal love as expressed in the sublime "Dove Song" dedicated to the emblematic dove of peace.

Pertinently pointing out what in Gilad's music is new and interesting, critic and philosopher Michel Contat sees in it, a blessing in these times of trouble and fear: that music should express "peace and love" without sounding mawkish is probably the best way to rise above all that.

Laurie Antonioli's "Varuna," A Duo Session with Pianist Richie Beirach, Due from Origin Records Sept. 18
 

from http://www.jazzcorner.com


Since returning to her native Bay Area in 2006 from a period of living and working in Europe, vocalist Laurie Antonioli has concentrated her creative energies on her American Dreams band, which backed her on last year's breakthrough Origin Records release Songs of Shadow, Songs of Light. For her new Origin CD, Varuna, Antonioli returns to an important chapter in her musical life by recording intimate sessions with her collaborator of more than 25 years, the esteemed pianist Richie Beirach. The CD, Antonioli's 6th as a leader, will be released September 18.

"I've been sitting on these sessions until the time was right," says the vocalist of Varuna, which was recorded in Leipzig, Germany (Beirach's home base) nearly 10 years ago and completed in Berkeley in 2012. "We do some of Richie's brand-new original material, with my lyrics, as well as several standards completely reimagined. The Resolution Suite features three pieces improvised by Richie and me with bassist Pepe Berns. The poem on ‘Revelation' happened in the moment, and ‘Exaltation' was inspired by Coltrane's ‘sheets of sound.'"

"Laurie is the real deal," says Beirach, "with a rich, elegant alto voice, great intonation and phrasing, and most of all, that unteachable, unexplainable element of humanity in every note she sings. Piano and voice is very intimate, with no place to hide but incredibly free and capable of magic moments. I love working with Laurie because it's truly like breathing from the same source of air. Especially on this CD, we are as one mind, one will, and one musical entity."

Antonioli and Beirach's first recorded encounter, in 1992, was a startlingly inventive date released by Nabel Records in 2005 as The Duo Session. With Antonioli holding down a professorship at Austria's KUG University between 2002 and 2006 and Beirach teaching in Leipzig, they performed regularly in top clubs and concert halls around Europe. The prolific Beirach gave Antonioli his latest original tunes so she could write lyrics to them, an activity that has formed the backbone of their creative partnership. "Writing lyrics to Richie's music feels like an extension of our conversations," says the vocalist. "And knowing what he had in mind often informs the storyline." Varuna features three of these songs: the hauntingly cinematic "Inside My Dreams"; the sensuous ballad "My Love"; and the gently flowing title track, which establishes a shimmering feel that pervades the entire album.

Varuna, the Vedic god who lives in celestial waters, is also the name of the recently discovered dwarf planet near Pluto. The album's themes of time and space are echoed throughout -- longing for home in "Over the Rainbow," the night wind in "Summer Night," the unseen presence of a loved one in "You're an Angel Now" (Laurie's lyrics to John Patitucci's music).

Early on in her career, Laurie Antonioli was a protégée of Joe Henderson, Mark Murphy, and Pony Poindexter, who recruited the 22-year-old singer for an extensive European tour that turned into an eight-month sojourn in 1980.

Following the release of her 1985 recording debut Soul Eyes, a duo album with George Cables, Antonioli was one of the Bay Area's most visible singers, booked at leading venues and festivals with her own band, performing regularly with Bobby McFerrin, and sitting in with luminaries like Tete Montoliu, Jon Hendricks, and Cedar Walton at Keystone Korner.

Laurie's second album, 2004's Foreign Affair, is a bracing blend of post-bop jazz and Balkan music created with players from Serbia, Albania, Germany, and the U.S. Her fourth, American Dreams (2010), was inspired by feelings that arose during her years abroad and features a number of her collaborations with Austrian pianist Fritz Pauer.

Her brilliant 2014 Joni Mitchell tribute, Songs of Shadow, Songs of Light, appeared on numerous best-album-of-the-year lists and received particularly cherished accolades from Ms. Mitchell herself, who invited Antonioli to perform at SFJAZZ's May 2015 gala celebration in Mitchell's honor (alongside Kris Kristofferson, Kurt Elling, and Patti Austin, among others).

For the last nine years Antonioli has served as the Chair of the Vocal Program at Berkeley's California Jazz Conservatory (formerly the Jazzschool). She created a unique eight-semester curriculum for the Vocal Department's degree program as well as overseeing hundreds of artists in workshops and concerts she organizes. "I enjoy the opportunity to pass on what I've learned and implement a program that is both organic and academically sound. That said, artistry is elusive and not necessarily something that can be taught, which is a very provocative challenge. I'm motivated to contribute what I can to preserve this delicate, complex, and soulful art form."

Laurie Antonioli and her American Dreams band will be appearing 9/6 at JoniFest in Greenville, SC; 10/10 at the California Jazz Conservatory in Berkeley; and 11/20 at the Unitarian Church in Berkeley, before entering Fantasy Studios 12/14 to record their next album. Antonioli and Beirach are planning a European tour, with dates to be announced, in April 2016.

Ola Onabulé - "It's The Peace That Deafens" Release Date: September 18, 2015 On Dot Time Records!

Following up on his recent UK chart success with the re-mix of Soul Town, Ola Onabule's new album "It's The Peace That Deafens" is his 8th studio album and marks a departure from his previous two releases featuring a largely acoustic set uniting Jazz, Soul and world influences. The Album contains 12 evocative songs about identity, reconciliation and nostalgia. Words, melodies and rhythms that walk a delicate tightrope of paradoxes, born of both a childhood and adulthood immersed in two disparate cultures, on two different continents and at two different times. Ola stated recently that "It's The Peace That Deafens" is as much a work of exploration as it is a declaration.

Spanning over two decades, Ola's career has been a testament to his passion and perseverance. Ola has blazed his own trail at every step: first turning away from expectations and leaving behind an education in law, then choosing to work outside the system of big record labels, he has gone on to build recording studios, set up his label Rugged Ram Records, and tour tirelessly around the world. Now a regular presence at some of the world's premier festivals and concert halls as well as featuring with award winning symphonic orchestras and big bands, Ola looks forward to taking this new album to wider audiences around the world.

In an exclusive interview with JazzTimes, Lage announced that the album, to be titled Holiday, will be produced by singer-songwriter Jesse Harris. “It’s a collection of 11 or 12 songs,” Lage said. “Some are originals and some are pre-bebop era songs: Jack Teagarden stuff, stuff that Bix [Beiderbecke] would have played. It’s kind of a Telecaster record. It’s very driven by my relationship with that instrument. I found that a lot of older songs had a vibrancy similar to early electric guitar. It wasn’t yet formalized. It was kind of pre-Great American Songbook era, pre-guitar sound, per se. Somehow that makes it sound kind of fresh to me. Early turn of the century writing mixed with early ’50s electronics. It’s kind of a cool combination.”

Legacy to Release 4-CD Set of Rare Sinatra Broadcasts

Includes 91 previously unreleased live performances

By JazzTimes

Sony Music’s Legacy Recordings has announced the Nov. 20 release of Frank Sinatra: A Voice on Air (1935-1955), a 100-plus-track, four-CD deluxe box set culled from rare radio broadcasts and rehearsals, restored from the original recording masters.

The set includes a 60-page book featuring an introductory essay by singer, pianist and archivist Michael Feinstein; a personal remembrance by Frank’s eldest daughter Nancy Sinatra and an essay by Sinatra historian and box set producer Charles L. Granata. The package was designed by art director Maria Marulanda, who created the 2007 Columbia/Legacy box set Frank Sinatra: A Voice in Time.

According to a press release, the box set includes material from the compilers’ Sinatra broadcast transcription collections and “the world’s most prestigious archives and sound recording repositories including the Library of Congress, the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center, the Paley Center for Media, the Michael Feinstein Great American Songbook Initiative archive and the University of Colorado’s Glenn Miller Archive.” Included are dozens of rare photographs and recording artifacts that help to illustrate the scope of Sinatra’s radio career.

The set includes samples of Sinatra’s radio work from the first 20 years of his career, from his first radio performance in 1935 (singing “S-H-I-N-E” with the Hoboken Four) to his last weekly series in 1955 (The Frank Sinatra Show, featuring rare performances with an in-studio quintet). The set also includes dozens of songs that were never officially recorded by Sinatra, and, according to the release, “dozens of unusual (and unrecorded) arrangements of Sinatra’s most prized songs.”

Legacy has also partnered with the Smithsonian Institution to create a single CD consisting of an additional 26 rare, previously unreleased radio recordings (not available on the box set) to be offered exclusively at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., and through their website. Visit Smithsonian Sinatra for information regarding this companion release.

Barb Jungr records new album in New York


Earlier this month Barb Jungr recorded Shelter From The Storm at Sears Studios in New York, due for release on Linn Records in early 2016.

Shelter From The Storm sees Barb, one of the UK's finest interpreters of song, join hands across the Atlantic with Laurence Hobgood, the American progressive and contemporary jazz piano virtuoso. This exciting new album project was recorded with Calum Malcolm at the controls and is co-produced by Calum, Laurence and Barb. Supporting musicians include Michael Olatuje on bass and percussionist Wilson Torres.

In his first major collaboration since his work with Kurt Elling (with whom he won a GRAMMY for the album, Dedicated To You: Kurt Elling Sings the Music of Coltrane and Hartman), Laurence Hobgood said: 'I'm not just thrilled to be collaborating with Barb Jungr; I'm energised, inspired and downright giddy at having (been) matched with a "musician's singer" - a superb vocalist whose musical intelligence is its own formidable, evolved force with which to reckon. And the reckoning is a blast!'

Shelter From The Storm includes three original songs by Barb and Laurence, alongside material by Dylan, Cohen, Mitchell, Springsteen, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Sondheim, Peter Gabriel and Bacharach and David.

The release will be supported by a major UK, European and Stateside tour in 2016.

Deftly leading the bristling affair, Matsui hypnotically gallops through electrifying extended excursions of "Dream Seeker," "Black Lion," and "Stingo," all from her critically-acclaimed album Soul Quest.

Joining the improvisational mastery is long-time collaborator Chuck Loeb who adds soaring guitar on "Caricias" and "Proof" while saxophonist Kirk Whalumreprises his guest appearance on "Affirmation," from Matsui's album The Road... Elsewhere, Keiko delights the crowd with fan favorites "Forever, Forever," "Safari" and "Bridge Over The Stars" before Loeb & Whalum re-join the ensemble for a show-stopping encore of "Antartica: A Call to Action" and"A Night with Cha Cha," both cornerstones of Soul Quest.

The companion DVD chronicles the action in high definition, as this historic night unfolds before a rapturous audience. Extras on the 3-hour, 16-minute DVD include behind-the-scenes footage at the conclusion of the concert, a bonus performance of "Midnight Stone" (Adapted w/ "En Aranjuez Con Tu Amor") and a 13-minute alternate live version of "Caricias".

With over 1.2 million units sold in the U.S. over her 25-year recording career, Keiko Matsui is one of the most recognized artists in contemporary jazz. Her elegant piano melodies and spell-binding grooves have universal appeal, cementing her legacy as one of the preeminent entertainers in the world.

John Coltrane: Complete Love Supreme Sessions To Be Released 

Rounding out the 50th anniversary year of the release of John Coltrane’s seminal album, A Love Supreme, comes news that all Coltrane fans have been waiting years for. The Impulse! label is releasing for the first time on 20 November every take and overdub from the two-day Love Supreme sessions that took place at Rudy van Gelder’s studio from 9-10 December 1964, from which the original album was produced and first released in February 1965. On the 9 December Coltrane recorded sessions for the four-part ‘Love Supreme’ suite, which formed the classic album with his quartet of pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Jimmy Garrison and drummer Elvin Jones.

Coltrane-Love-Supreme-completeThe sessions on the 10 December added saxophonist Archie Shepp and second bassist Art Davis for additional takes of the tracks recorded the day before, two of which were released on the 2002 Love Supreme Deluxe Edition, along with the only know live recording from the Antibes festival in July 1965. Now, with the discovery of further lost session reels, A Love Supreme – The Complete Masters will be available from 20 November in 2CD and 3CD formats. The 2 CD set will include the original album together with two previously unreleased mono reference tracks from Coltrane’s own collection and seven additional unreleased takes from both sessions, including all six takes of ‘Acknowledgment’.

The set will also include a 32 page book by noted writer Ashley Kahn, author A Love Supreme: The Story of John Coltrane’s Signature Album, which will feature Coltrane’s musical sketches, notes and ‘A Love Supreme’ poem. The 3CD Super Deluxe Edition set includes all of the above plus the 1965 live at Antibes disc and is presented in a larger format with additional sleeve notes by Carlos Santana.
