The players varied the sound and delivery of each piece as suited the music and the mood, making for a lively program entirely lacking in dull spots: a great idea for an audience that’s showed up expecting some fun. Which they got. The playing was crisp, tight, harmonious, and, well, really brassy. Burning River is clearly an ensemble that enjoys its work. Its easy, punchy delivery, which seems unforced and effortless, could only have turned out that way with a significant amount of practice and great attention to detail… this Christmas Concert was about as good as it gets.

The seven brothers embrace a spiritual jazz sound, sans percussion, on their first album since the group’s father, Philip Cohran, passed away in February 2017. “With its cathedral-like, richly resonant acoustics, the new Hypnotic Brass Ensemble album Book Of Sound is a brilliant expression of interplanetary principle. The album is by turns urgent and contemplative, funky and reflective, varied in its textures; but entirely of one piece. Underpinned by concepts of earth's place in the cosmos, held in place by meditation, swirling with notions of history, science, theology, ancestry, there is a rich conceptual brew here.

With its cathedral-like, richly resonant acoustics, the new Hypnotic Brass Ensemble album Book Of Sound is a brilliant expression of this interplanetary principle. The album is by turns urgent and contemplative, funky and reflective, varied in its textures; but entirely of one piece. Underpinned by concepts of earth's place in the cosmos, held in place by meditation, swirling with notions of history, science, theology, ancestry, there is a rich conceptual brew here. The album rings with what back in the 1950s the jazz critic Whitney Balliet called "the sound of surprise".

Un colpo di pistola nella notte, Bernie Malin è un uomo morto. Loretta, la giovane amante che giaceva di nascosto con lui, fugge, portando in grembo Jules, il figlio illecito di quel tragico rapporto. È il tramonto degli anni trenta in un'America patriarcale e sanguinolenta: le prostitute passeggiano davanti ai collegi cattolici, l'aria odora di polvere da sparo e temporali, i giovani crescono nell'ossessione del potere, delle macchine costose, del denaro facile. Lo spettro della Seconda guerra mondiale si avvicina a grandi passi minacciando il sogno americano, e quando gli uomini vengono chiamati alle armi madri e figli devono lottare da soli con tutti i mezzi possibili per sopravvivere..

Il piccolo Jesse apre la porta di casa. Alle sue spalle, il padre apre il bagagliaio dell'auto da cui sono scesi: forse c'è un regalo dentro, pensa Jesse, forse un albero di Natale. Apre la porta e un odore dolciastro, di carne, lo investe. Poi vede gli schizzi rossi a terra. Vede suo fratello Bobby, la testa girata da un lato, gli occhi aperti ma spenti. Poi alza lo sguardo e li vede tutti: sua sorella Jean, riversa accanto a una lampada rotta; Shirley con le braccia strette al ventre; la madre in poltrona, con la testa rovesciata indietro, la gola squarciata. E il sangue, il sangue dappertutto, a terra, sotto le suole, sulle pareti..

Big Brass is an appropiate name for the large ensemble arranged and conducted by Ernie Wilkins that accompanies the huge sound of Sonny Rollins. The energy within the leader's gospel-flavored shout "Grand Street" is considerable, while a swinging but no less powerful version of George & Ira Gershwin's "Who Cares" features a choice solo by guitarist Rene Thomas. Also added to this compilation are trio recordings with bassist Henry Grimes and drummer Specs Wright, including a brilliant leisurely stroll through "Manhattan," along with Rollins' tour de force unaccompanied tenor sax on "Body and Soul."

One of Nat Adderley's finest albums. Sometimes the inclusion of tuba in a small-group modern jazz setting can produce whale-like results among a school of dolphin, but that's not the case here. Tuba man Laymon Jackson doesn't dominate or weigh down the proceedings, but merely gives them another texture. Nat is in fine form; I like his Miles mode on BLUE CONCEPT a lot. Tune selection for the date is also top rate: the two compositions by Duke Pearson (WHAT NEXT? and LITTLE MISS) are especially good. Nat Adderley fans and modern jazz lovers in general should like this ambitious CD very much.
