      Mingus Big Band Live at Jazz Standard
      by Mingus Big Band
    Our Price: $17.00 CD / no MP3 Album Download
    Usually ships in 1-2 days
    Deeply entrenched in swing, immersed in the history of their craft and with years of experience as veteran jazz musicians, Lady K and the Kings of Swing is a 17-piece Frank Sinatra-style big band recreating the sounds of Duke Ellington, Cole Porter, Count Basie, Gershwin, Kenton, Sinatra and beyond.

    Just as 1939 was a year of iconic films that included movies as diverse as Gone with the Wind and The Wizard of Oz, twenty years later a series of classic jazz albums appeared that showcased works by Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Dave Brubeck, Ornette Coleman and three seminal recordings by Charles Mingus: Mingus Ah Um, Mingus Dynasty and Blues & Roots. Tunes like “Goodbye Pork Pie Hat,” “Better Get Hit in Your Soul” and “Moanin’” entered the American lexicon.

    Today, the Mingus Big Band, one of three repertory bands carrying on the sprawling legacy of Mingus composition, continues its weekly presence in Manhattan which began in 1991 and continues in its current residency at Jazz Standard. Since October 2008, Mingus Mondays has been a fixture on the New York scene. This first recorded collaboration between Mingus music and Jazz Standard preserves what Michael Bourne, Master of Ceremonies that evening, hailed as one of the best he had hosted in twenty-two years of NPR New Year’s Eve broadcasts: “every tune a classic, every player a master, every tune sounding new, every player keeping the spirit of Charles Mingus alive and swinging!”

      Continuum

    Usually ships in 1-2 days
    I have always enjoyed writing for large ensembles. The aural colors available by combining a wide variety of instruments are limitless. It’s been an absolute delight, not only to have written over the years, but to have shared music with my son Brent. As director of all my bands for nearly a decade, he knows exactly how I like things done and has been able to elicit consistently superb interpretations from the players. He has also carried on my style as a writer, giving me a deep sense of satisfaction. Following are his liner notes. It is my sincere hope you will enjoy listening to it as much as I. -- Clare Fischer
    This is an extra large big band combining world renowned musicians, unusual instrumentaton and writing found nowhere else.

      The Gate's BBQ Suite
      by Bobby Watson and the UMKC Concert Jazz Orchestra
    Our Price: $13.00 CD / $7.99 MP3 Album Download
    Usually ships in 1-2 days
    Barbeque has always represented a celebration in my life. My Grandpa and Grandma Wilkes ran a barbeque establishment on the grounds of their property in Merriam, Kansas. Whenever my parents took me and my brothers for a visit, I always looked forward to having some of their barbeque. It was a celebration. As I grow older, smoking meat remains near and dear to me. It is relaxing and exciting at the same time. During the 25 years that my family lived in NYC, I had a small Weber grill that I kept on our terrace 27 floors above the streets of Manhattan. I would work my magic out there on my terrace, accompanied by the sounds of the New York City traffic…..at least until someone called security on us. You see, it is against the law to barbeque on most apartment terraces in New York City!
    This is a joyous musical journey into the world of the famed Gates BBQ restaurants of Kansas City. Bobby Watson composed, orchestrated and directed the 17 piece UMKC Conservatory Concert Jazz Orchestra through his long-awaited extended large ensemble work: The Gates BBQ Suite. The seven-part undertaking -- has been like the food he sets to music: a slow, continual process on its way to perfection



      Solo
      by Marco Pierobon
    Our Price: $15.00 CD / $8.99 MP3 Album Download
    Usually ships in 1-2 days
    In the past few years there has been a surge in the number of solo trumpet CDs released and many of them have been wonderful, but in most cases a piece of the puzzle has been missing; in the new CD, SOLO, with Italian trumpet player Marco Pierobon, the puzzle is complete. Marco Pierobon has the power of Bud Herseth, the 19th century awareness of Timofei Dokshizer, the technical freedom of Rafael Mandez and the great lead player skill of Harry James. But there is more!

    All of these great pieces can certainly stand-alone, but Marco’s versatility in these performances is absolutely amazing; quite simply, all the various styles represented are exactly right. But there is still one more thing that needs to be pointed out: Marco is Italian and as well the comparisons with the great trumpet players mentioned above, he has that visceral passionate musicality that we associate with Luciano Pavarotti. For example, every time I listen to the THEME FOR TRUMPET by Michele Mangani it makes the hairs on my arms stand up.
    Roger Bobo, brass legend, described this album as “wonderful modern trumpet playing, full of musicality”.



      All In
      by Westchester Jazz Orchestra
    Our Price: $15.97 CD
    Usually ships in 1-2 days
    The Westchester Jazz Orchestra, an all-star ensemble that brings together seventeen musical artists who live, teach or frequently play in the suburbs just north of New York City, proudly presents its debut recording, All In. Featuring eight thoroughly engaging arrangements written specifically for the band, All In confirms WJO’s status as one of the top jazz orchestras performing today and also shows why ensembles as such remain as viable contributors in the jazz world.

    Now in its fifth year, the Westchester Jazz Orchestra has, from its inception, fulfilled a mission to “promote jazz, contribute to its evolution, and advance the appreciation and understanding of this uniquely American cultural treasure.” Each season of its existence has found WJO offering audiences newly-commissioned arrangements that celebrate the entire history of big band jazz, and band members have conducted residencies or workshops in numerous schools. Thus, the band has gradually achieved recognition that extends beyond its strong regional popularity.
    WJO's debut CD reached #4 in national radio airplay and ranked #50 on JazzWeek's "Top 100 of 2008." "Hot soloing and tight arranging.... a balanced performance that excels."



      Introducing the Eyal Vilner Big Band
      by Eyal Vilner
    Our Price: $14.99 CD / $9.99 MP3 Album Download
    Usually ships in 1-2 days
    Early in 1999, I heard through my friend Scott Englebright that trumpeter Carl Saunders was rehearsing a big band at the union hall in Los Angeles. I had been introduced to Carl's music in 1996 when another friend, John Foss, told me about Carl's first CD. I was already familiar with Carl's big band work, particularly his soloing with Bob Florence, so when Scott told me he had rehearsed with Carl's big band, I immediately placed a call to California. As it happened, Carl had taken his camcorder to a recent rehearsal, so he sent me a videotape and I was hooked. The short version of this story is that we decided to record the band. The long version follows.

    “His big band is special in that, in addition to five reeds and a rhythm section, it has four, rather than eight, brass. “This combination of instruments gives the band the flexibility of a small group along with the power of a big band.” His 14-piece band is filled with superior soloists who blend together effortlessly to achieve an identifiable group sound. But most impressive is Eyal’s writing, which often voices the horns in inspired ways. He integrates individual lyrical lines for the musicians and harmonizes the horns in unique combinations, mixing together the different sections to create colorful and special sounds that are filled with surprises.

    During the past few years, the Eyal Vilner Big Band has been busy performing around the New York City scene, including at Sweet Rhythm, Smalls, Iridium, Fat Cat, and the Garage. After performing a week at Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola, the band was ready to make its recording debut.
    "Fourteen of NYC’s finest young musicians performing intriguing new arrangements of jazz standards and originals. A unique blend of traditional jazz music with new concepts, colors, and sounds!”
