John Stein's recording pace has picked up considerably since his association with the Whaling City Sound label. These studio sessions from mid-2009 reunite him with the group on his previous CD, Encounterpoint, including pianist Koichi Sato, drummer Zé Eduardo Nazario, and bassist John Lockwood. While this is not a regularly working quartet, as each musician has other commitments, Stein booked a few live dates to woodshed on-stage prior to going into the studio, always a good plan. Most of the fare will be familiar to jazz fans, starting off with a breezy setting of Horace Silver's "Nica's Dream," while Bobby Timmons' "Moanin'" gets a new look with Nazario's shuffling rhythm on brushes and an overall funky flavor not usually present, plus use of Fender Rhodes, which proves less percussive than in most recordings. Sato's shimmering introduction is a refreshing way to open Thad Jones' "A Child Is Born," while the bittersweet "Beautiful Love" changes direction with Stein's intricate guitar. Stein also penned two valuable originals, the intricate post-bop vehicle "Elvin!" and the lighthearted "Wild Woods." Recommended.

John Coltrane, the Continuous Blow(n)

Just half a century ago, the American saxophonist passed away at only 40 years old, leaving behind many recordings which have revolutionized the history of his instrument, of jazz, and also of the music of the twentieth century.

Chris Connor, a Forgotten Voice

What if she really was the greatest cool jazz singer of them all? Almost twelve years after she passed away, Chris Connor remains one of the most sensual voices of her generation. After all, there's more to life than Anita O'Day and June Christy...

Keith Jarrett’s American Quartet

At the start of his busy career Keith Jarrett spent seven years carrying out all manner of crazy experiments with his American Quartet. Between the years of 1971 and 1976, the pianist, alongside Charlie Haden, Paul Motian and Dewey Redman ran some kind of mad laboratory in which the genres of hard bop, free-jazz, world and avant-garde would all come together. A spontaneous and interesting time worth rediscovering.
