Lee Konitz - Frescalalto / theguardian review

Not many jazz improvisers manage to remain inquisitive, unpredictable, uncategorisable and entertaining throughout a six-decade career, but the 89-year-old Chicagoan alto saxophonist Lee Konitz is a momentous exception.This straight-ahead set is predominantly a vehicle for the fine pianist Kenny Barron's trio, with Konitz leaning in for some characteristically pungent sax propositions and asides, and some quirky scat vocals. He's unhurriedly and laterally melodious on Stella By Starlight. His arrival midway through Thingin' is impeccably timed (though his closing solo is faded just as he seems to be breaking into a trot). He sounds like Mark Murphy singing very slowly on Darn That Dream, and is poised and thoughtful on the swinging Kary's Trance. For Konitz fans like this one, it's fascinating.

Jennifer Kloetzel interviews with 104.9 IdeaStream - Cleveland

The legacy of the Cypress String Quartet, which celebrated its 20th anniversary and valedictory season in 2016, is sealed by the ensemble's final recording – the two String Sextets by Johannes Brahms in which they are joined by longtime collaborators, violist Barry Shiffman and cellist Zuill Bailey. True to form, the Cypress String Quartet applied innovation to its last recording: live in front of a studio audience at Skywalker Sound Studio. They collectively commented on the addition of Shiffman and ,Bailey "We have had a very long and colorful association with each of these amazing artists and have always wanted to record with them. Zuill and Barry fit in seamlessly while bringing a memorable and refreshing novelty to our collaboration. As for repertoire, the choice was clear: these monumental String Sextets of Brahms, with their warmth and reflective qualities, are perfectly suited to saying farewell." In conjunction with this release cellist Jennifer Kloetzel spoke with Idea Station - Classical WCLV - Cleveland: Angela Mitchell.. Listen to the attached conversation.

Rickie Lee Jones - Madeleine Peyroux NATour starts 3/1

On the eve of Rickie Lee Jones and Madeleine Peyroux embarking on a North American tour, let's revisit a vintage video of Jones' jazztastic, acoustic-guitar-driven hit single "Chuck E's in Love," from 1979. The duo also just released a politically charged video for a newly recorded cover of David Essex's "Rock On." The video involves a poignant (and sometimes hard to watch) series of clips focusing on women's rights and a host of human rights issues.  Madeleine Peyroux's latest Impulse/Verve CD: Secular Hymns is a spirited and soulful masterwork recorded with her touring band-mates of the last two years -electric guitarist Jon Herington and upright bassist Barak Mori. The trio crafted the album in a live setting at a small church in the Oxfordshire countryside of England. The result is a stirring collection of songs that have their own hymn-like stories of self-awareness. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Helvetica} Here is a full list of - Rickie Lee Jones and Madeleine Peyroux Tour Dates: 03/01 – Theatre Maisonneuve – Montreal, Canada 03/02 – The Wilbur – Boston, MA 03/03 – Scottish Rite Auditorium – Collingswood, NJ 03/04 – Town Hall – New York, NY 03/06 – Mayo Center for the Performing Arts – Morristown, NJ 03/07 – Bethesda Blues & Jazz – Bethesda, MD 03/09 – Peace Center  -Greenville, SC 03/10 – The Charleston Gailard Center – Charleston, SC 03/11 – Capitol – Clearwater, FL 03/12 – Variety Playhouse – Atlanta, GA 03/14 – Majestic Theatre Dallas – Dallas, TX 03/16 – Fox Theater – Tucson, AZ 03/17 – Arlington Theatre – Santa Barbara, CA 03/18 – Luckman Fine Arts Center – Los Angeles, CA 03/19 – Kanbar Hall – Jewish Community Center – San Francisco, CA 03/21 – Royal Theatre – Victoria, Canada 03/22 – Neptune – Seattle, WA 03/24 – Rococo Theatre – Lincoln, NE 03/25 – Paramount Theatre – Aurora, IL 03/26 – The Northern Lights Theater – Milwaukee, WI* 03/28 – Ames Center – Burnsville, MN 03/29 – Iowa City – Englert Theater* 03/31 – Austin, TX – One World Theater* p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Helvetica} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Helvetica; min-height: 12.0px} 04/01 – Houston, TX – The Heights Theater*

Becca Stevens Q&A with The Independent

Becca Stevens has revealed the new video for her song 'Queen Mab', which we're premiering on The Independent. It follows the journey of an albino child fleeing for his life - and hopes to highlight the persecution of albino people in Tanzania.

'Queen Mab is taken of Stevens' upcoming album Regina, set for release on 24 March via GroundUP Music.

Echoes of Laura Nyro set for Herbst Theatre / San Francisco Chronicle

Laura Nyro wrote the rousing "Save the Country" in 1968 after the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Bobby Kennedy, as the Vietnam War and racial strife racked the nation. Pounding the piano in a jaunty groove, she sang the melody with a mix of defiant anger and optimism in her abundant, fiery voice. The version of "Save the Country" that pianist-composer Billy Childs arranged for his beautiful 2014 CD "Map to the Treasure - Reimagining Laura Nyro," is a reflective ballad, hymn-like in its deep simplicity. It's sung just right by Shawn Colvin in an intimate setting with string quartet, piano and trumpeter Chris Botti.

At producer Larry Klein's suggestion, Childs viewed the events that shaped "Save the Country" - an apt song for this moment "It's more like a plea to save the country. The arrangement is almost Coplandesque," says Childs, who performs music from his Grammy-winning Nyro project at Herbst Theatre on March 4 with Quartet San Francisco. The group includes a harpist, bassist, guitarist, drummer and two vocalists: the fluid jazz and folk singer Becca Stevens, who sang Nyro's "The Confession" on the CD, and Alicia Olatuja, who's equally adept at singing opera and jazz.

Laura Karpman talks about 'Balls' / Los Angeles Times

Composer Laura Karpman was walking on the beach in front of her house when the idea hit her: She would write an opera about tennis great Billie Jean King, and it had to be called "Balls." Karpman had been in her early teens when she first watched King dismantle Bobby Riggs' made-for-TV chauvinism one volley at a time, live on ABC in their "Battle of the Sexes" match. "Everybody was watching," she remembers of the tennis showdown, which King won. "It was 1973 and at that point I was already composing. It gave me the feeling that I could do anything."

The Trans-Cultural World of Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble / PRI: Echoes

With President Trump's current world ban on Muslims entering to the US, it may leave musicians like Iranian composer Kayhan Kalhor and Syrian clarinet player Kinan Azmeh unable to reenter the United States. Both these musicians are key players in Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble. World fusion took on classical dimensions when Yo-Yo Ma formed his acclaimed Silk Road Ensemble. He brought together musicians and composers from around the world to create a new dialogue in a hybrid cultural sound. The Silk Road Ensemble is in its 16th year and its music horizons just keep getting broader.  Their new album, Sing Me Home features guest performances by guitarist Bill Frisell, banjoist Abigail Washburn, and African kora players Toumani Diabate and Balla Kouyate among eight others from around the world.

Top 10 Albums for February

Theo Bleckmann :


Beyond being a vocalist of rare purity and daring, Theo Bleckmann is a sound painter who creates what JazzTimes has described aptly as "luminous webs" in music. The German-born New Yorker – after appearing on two ECM albums by Meredith Monk and on another by pianist Julia Hülsmann of Kurt Weill songs – makes his striking label debut as a leader with Elegy. This album showcases Bleckmann as a composer as much as a singer, with several instrumental pieces voiced by what he calls his "ambient" band of kindred-spirit guitarist Ben Monder, keyboardist Shai Maestro and the subtle rhythm team of Chris Tordini and John Hollenbeck. Highlights include Bleckmann's sublime rendition of Stephen Sondheim's "Comedy Tonight" ("tragedy tomorrow… comedy tonight"), as well as the mellifluous vocalise of "Little Elegy" and achingly poetic song "To Be Shown to Monks at a Certain Temple." 14 NEW  93 TOTAL SYND: PRI/Jazz After Hours, CBC Markets include: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Philadelphia, St. Louis, New Orleans, Baltimore, Minneapolis, Denver, Austin, Berkeley CA, San Antonio, Hartford CT, Knoxville, Rochester NY, Honolulu, Toronto, Vancouver INTER: Canada, Germany, Mexico, UK, France Online: all about jazz, wsj, Mozart and me, Straightnochaser, KUHS, SoulandJazz, JazzTrail, allmusic, Jazz from Gallery 41, Radio Valencia, theguardian, OBSERVER, stereotag, writteninmusic.com, mdr, Europe Jazz Network, Radio France, Radio Univeridad 19 JazzWeek ADD's All Press Secured by Tina Pelikan- ECM p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Helvetica} p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Helvetica}

For this album, Fleming has chosen works in which music and poetry merge to create soundscapes, each piece evoking emotional states - nostalgia, unease, desire, joy - with cinematic clarity.

But the more one plays and thinks about them, the more their narratives seem to travel along in a spiral," he explains. "My approach to each of the etudes is to enable the listener to create his or her own personal space of reflection." 16 NEW  28 TOTAL SYND: Classical 24, CBC, CLASSIC fM Direct: SiriusXM, MOOD  Markets include: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Seattle, Cleveland, Houston, Minneapolis, Portland, Austin, Albuquerque, SC (Network) INTER: Canada, UK Online: AccuRadio, Sequenza 21, Second Inversion
