Dave Hill's "New World" is an engaging mix of Contemporary Jazz, Funk Fusion and Smooth Jazz. The follow up to his debut "Two Seasons" finds him in good company as Russell Ferrante and Jimmy Haslip of the world famous "Yellowjackets" and Will Kennedy (Yellowjackets alumni ) join him as guest artists. This CD brings Daves' blues based Jazz Influenced Guitar playing into focus against the backdrop of his beautiful and highly listenable compositions. While Russ Ferrante's instantly recognizable Piano / Electric piano style warms up his tracks, Haslip and Kennedy drive the rhythm section while pushing Dave's guitar to new levels of soulful expression. Dave's talented band is also featured on this CD with notable performances by saxophonist Andy Suzuki and Michael Bluestein on keyboards. There is not a throw away tune on this CD (co-produced by Jimmy Haslip) and you will enjoy it more with each listen.

Welcome to Malpesta finds Human Feel – now a New York-based quartet of reedmen Andrew D'Angelo and Chris Speed, guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel, and drummer Jim Black – fully realizing their identity as a four-way collective deep within the architecture of the music. The album is paradoxical – simultaneously free and rigorously controlled, filled with hot soloing and yet absent typical soloist-accompanist roles. The musicians are in it together at each moment, even while each is off in an individual world of his own making. Saxophone, clarinet, electric guitar, and drums wail away in a variety of combinations, yet the overall intensity is carefully modulated and the melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic elements are all shared property.
Following the discovery of the Americas, Christianity and the Roman Catholic Church was established with incredible speed. Many of the Native Indians were part of highly sophisticated civilizations, most notably the Aztecs and the Incas, and were very responsive to the new ideas, especially music, which was already an important social and spiritual element in their lives.
