Claire Martin – Too Darn Hot (2002) [Jazz, LINN, FLAC 96kHz/24bit]

As soon as I heard the saxophone burst that powers the opening of Something's Coming (from West Side Story), I knew this disc was something very special, and not just another rehashing of tired old standards given quirky treatments by some new upstart trying to make a name for herself. The tune swings hard -- during the instrumental break during the bridge, it's almost impossible to resist the urge to get up and dance! The brashness, confidence and total control that Claire Martin exudes suits the song perfectly -- it's still faithful to the Bernstein/Sondheim tradition, but she sings it like she owns it!
The tracks here are an eclectic mix, ranging from the familiar to the obscure, with well- and lesser-known songs from Broadway and Tin Pan Alley, along with jazz standards; even covers of tunes made popular by artists as diverse as Buddy Holly to Nat King Cole and Joni Mitchell, with a few originals thrown in for good measure. The clever arrangements the songs are given only serve to add to your enjoyment, and elevate them far beyond the usual fare. When this album swings, as is often the case, it swings hard -- due in no small part to the snappy piano playing of Gareth Williams and the excellent rhythm section featuring bassist Geoff Gascoyne and drummer Clark Tracey, who anchor most of the tracks. And Claire Martin's voice -- oh, what a voice! From sweet, to sassy and sultry -- when she tells you its too darn hot, you feel the temperature rise.

The Jimmy Cobb Quartet – Cobbs Corner (2007) [Jazz, HDTracks, FLAC 96kHz/24bit]

Title: Cobbs Corner
Genre: Jazz
Release Date: 2007
Label: Chesky Records
Duration: 57:03
Quality: FLAC 96kHz/24bit

Jazz drummer Jimmy Cobb is perhaps most famous for his role as the backbone to Miles Davis's best albums, but the unstoppable Cobb is also an excellent band leader in his own right, as evidenced in his latest release for Chesky Records, Cobb's Corner. This recording captures the Jimmy Cobb that jazz listeners who've followed his long, gratifying career expect. Cobb's Corner finds Jimmy filling out his rhythm section with legendary New York pianist Ronnie Mathews and renowned bassist Peter Washington. The chief soloist on the record is Roy Hargrove, perhaps the most versatile and surefire trumpeter to emerge in the wake of Wynton Marsalis. The musician's fortright embrace of American standards, their personal interpretations of delectable melodies and their collective, highly interactive improvisations make this a must have for any jazz aficionado. This super audio compact disc was recorded using Chesky's state of the art minimalist miking techniques to create an outstanding addition to any audiophiles collection.

Richard Elliot – Summer Madness (2016) [Jazz, AcousticSounds, FLAC 44.1kHz/24bit]

Artist: Richard Elliot
Title: Summer Madness
Genre: Jazz
Release Date: 2016
Label: Heads Up

Tenor saxophonist Richard Elliot celebrates his funk and R&B roots on Summer Madness, the follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2014 release Lip Service. Recorded with the members of his touring band, the album's cast includes two other horn players augmenting Elliot's signature sax work: trumpeter and trombonist Rick Braun, who also produced the sessions and, on several tracks, baritone saxophonist Curt Waylee appears. Most importantly though, the songs were created from scratch as Elliot and his musicians formulated and honed their ideas in the studio, with Braun's ultra-capable guidance. For Elliot, recruiting the additional players and having the entire band, plus a respected veteran producer help him shape the music, was integral to the project's success.

With the release of her 1993 Blue Note debut Cruisin', pianist Junko Onishi arrived as one of the most promising of Japan-born jazz musicians. Growing up in Tokyo, Onishi received classical piano lessons but became quite interested in jazz. She studied at Berklee and after three years moved to New York. Already a well-developed player, Onishi worked with Joe Henderson, Betty Carter, Kenny Garrett, and Mingus Dynasty before recording her debut as a leader. She considers her style to be based on Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, and Ornette Coleman; her other recordings from the '90s include 1994's Live at the Village Vanguard, 1995's Piano Quintet Suite, and 1999's Fragile. After Fragile, Onishi took a break from releasing albums to focus on developing her music. She returned over ten years later with 2009's Musical Moments. She followed that up a year later with her 2010 Verve debut, Baroque, which featured several Onishi originals as well as interpretations of some 20th century classical pieces. Tea Times is her new album, recorded and released in 2016 on Japanese Village Records label.

Josef Leimberg has created a rich tapestry of sound that fits right in with the resurgence of progressive music in the 2010's, launching out on his own terms after an impressive career of guest work.
