Thème de ce quatrième opus, le « Jazz Guitar » ! Dès la fin des années trente, les guitaristes peuvent enfin, dans les orchestres de jazz, grâce à l’amplification, jouer à part entière leur rôle de solistes, à armes égales avec les trompettistes, trombonistes, saxophonistes, et pianistes. Dans le premier opus on retrouve donc bien évidemment le Solo Flight de Charlie Christian qui constitue un modèle idéal que suivent, analysent et respectent encore aujourd’hui nombre de guitaristes ; Wes Montgomery, Jimmy Raney, Billy Bauer - que l’on peut écouter ici - lui doivent beaucoup…

For Once in My Life is Ben Paterson's fourth album as a leader but first as an organist. In his native Philadelphia—home to such giants of the Hammond as Jimmy Smith, Shirley Scott, Charles Earland and Joey DeFrancesco—Paterson was known as a pianist. He began doubling on organ while living in Chicago, and by the time he moved to New York City in 2013 was gigging regularly on organ and piano all over Manhattan, from Harlem in the north to Greenwich Village in the south. One of the reasons he made the move to organ, Paterson says, is "I get to be the bassist."

Recorded live at Berkeley's California Jazz Conservatory in 2012 at the end of a two-week tour, "Live Beauty" captures the lithe and dynamic Bay-Area quartet that John Stowell and Michael Zilber have co-led for the past 7 years. It well represents the effortless empathy and telepathy these four musicians have developed during that time. "…there's no mistaking Stowell's remarkable prowess and sensitivity on electric and acoustic guitars–or the fun he's having in this highly interactive setting." JazzTimes.

'That feeling of navigating the unexpected is probably the most exciting part of watching a group like [the No Net Nonet] perform. . . with all of its members sonically bouncing around, building and expanding upon each other s ideas until a greater sum bursts forth. . . ' - The Villager. With his monthly residency at New York's Smalls Jazz Club, saxophonist Lucas Pino has developed his No Net Nonet into an exciting and deeply musical improvising ensemble. Performing all original compositions, the group forges new ground while maintaining a rich, organic, swinging center. Originally from Phoenix, Pino attended the Brubeck Institute, The New School and Julliard, where he received his Masters in 2011.

The reason behind Corey Christiansen's clinically precise guitar style is his experience with Mel Bay Guitar Instruction. He is fluent in all guitar styles, which fully informs his recording and performing persona. His previous recording, Roll With It (Origin, 2008), employing the same band as on the present Outlaw Tractor, was a sleek funk machine updating the soul jazz of the 1960s. Previous to that, Awakening (Mel Bay, 2004) demonstrated, with a piano quartet, the great (if a bit wordy) promise that Christiansen has brought into sharper focus with his more recent organ quartet releases…

For his second release on Origin, New York pianist Dan Cray draws on the inspiration he received from a year spent living and working out in the Sierras and hiking in Big Sur. With rising star Dayna Stephens on saxophone, along with drummer Mark Ferber and Cray's longtime bandmate, bassist Clark Sommers, Cray's mix of his own compositions and arrangements of several rarely heard standards offer a meditation on nature and the search for peace wherever you are.

5-Part Suite for Jazz Orchester In 2014, the suite state of mind for jazz orchester was created. It is, in its scope and versatility, the result of Tobias Wembers long-time experience in writing contemporary music. Wember’s compositions occur in special moments, through which this varied and comprehensive suite, based on everyday emotions and situations was shaped. Soft, melancholy sequences are replaced by pulsating, advancing music. Contemplative melodies encounter powerful, structured and richly coloured passages.
