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."

In choosing Focus as the title of this bristling, no-holds-barred album, saxophonist John Wojciechowski spells out his entire artistic philosophy, and does so with the succinct force that has marked his work throughout Chicago over the last decade. With his quartet of equally respected and dynamic musical partners - pianist Ryan Cohan, bassist Dennis Carroll, and drummer Dana Hall - they create a timeless recording full of rich melodic compositions and inspired interplay.

Nick Finzer is one of the players responsible, a trombonist and writer with flair and variety. The Chase, his second album, helps to ensure that the good times will stick around.
