More From The Levee is the 18th album from iconic bluesman Chris Smither. Deemed "one of the absolute best singer-songwriters in the world" (Associated Press), the album is a brilliant continuation of Smither's 50-year retrospective album, Still On The Levee (2014). Reconnecting with his roots, Smither recorded the career-spanning album in New Orleans at the fabled Music Shed. What resulted were 24 reimagined takes from Smither's vast career with help from very special guests including the legendary Allen Toussaint and Loudon Wainwright III. More From The Levee contains ten of these gems including fan favorites Drive You Home Again, Caveman, and a new Smither original titled What I Do. Producer Dave Goodrich says, 'We still had extraordinary performances left in the vault, another irreducible collection of Chris's songs full of great performances, intimate and immediate. It's a truly special recording, a snapshot of some powerful music-making.'

Escucho Birdsong, letra y música de Joana Casanova. Lo hago mientras escribo estas palabras y lo hago realmente emocionado y feliz, por varias razones. Conocí a Joana Casanova cuando ella tenía 14 años, que comenzó a ser alumna mía de saxo. Al cabo de un par de años le propuse incorporarse a mi proyecto Sant Andreu Jazz Band, sabiendo que sería para ella una gran motivación y que como vocalista y saxofonista enriquecería el sonido de la banda, como así ha sido. Joana es la muestra de que, con constancia, con trabajo, con fe y con amor se puede conseguir lo que te propongas.

After the highly successful "Perfectly Unhappy" album with Andy Sheppard, the trio is back with a new album featuring seven brand new songs from the pianist. Captivating and lyrical, always melodic, often melancholic and uplifting at the same time, these are all real tunes. After 10 years, four albums and regular touring on four continents, the trio is tighter than ever and have reached an almost telepathic level of interplay.

Gotta Travel On is an album by pianist Ray Bryant recorded and released by Cadet Records in 1966. Raphael Homer "Ray" Bryant was an American jazz pianist, composer, and arranger. Bryant was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on December 24, 1931. His mother was an ordained minister who had taught herself to play the piano; his father also played the piano and sang. His brothers were the bass player Tommy, drummer and singer Len, and Lynwood. Ray began playing the piano around the age of six or seven, following the example of his mother and his sister, Vera. Gospel influences in his playing came from being part of the church at this stage in his early life. He had switched from classical music to jazz by his early teens, and played the double bass at junior high school. He was first paid to play when he was 12: "I would play for dances, and they'd sneak me into bars. I'd get four or five bucks a night, which was good money then." He turned professional aged 14, and immediately joined a local band led by Mickey Collins.

Hard Bop, Post-Bop | Label: Windham Hill Jazz - WD-0112

Pianist Denny Zeitlin's first of two albums for Windham Hill Jazz shows off his roots in Bill Evans along with his own musical personality. Teamed up with bassist Joel DiBartolo and drummer Peter Donald, Zeitlin is in superior form on five of his originals, Charles Mingus' "Goodbye Porkpie Hat," "All The Things You Are," J.J. Johnson's "Lament" and Ornette Coleman's "Turnaround." An excellent all-around showcase for the part-time pianist who holds a day job as a psychiatrist. ~ AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

The music on this 1995 release was performed by the quartet of pianist Allen Farnham, bassist Drew Gress, drummer Jamey Haddad, and tenor-saxophonist Joe Lovano in 1986, the trio of Farnham, Gress and Haddad in 1992, and by Farnham solo in 1994. The pianist is best-known for playing behind other artists, including being the musical director for the late singer Susannah McCorkle. Throughout this set, Farnham shows that he is a solid, modern, mainstream soloist, sometimes recalling Bill Evans and (to a lesser extent) Keith Jarrett. Lovano plays well in his spots particularly on a medium-tempo "How Deep Is The Ocean." Farnham contributed four of the ten songs, and also interprets pieces by Ralph Towner, Steve Swallow, Duke Ellington, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and Bill Evans. Overall, this is an excellent effort, with enough variety in tempos and moods to hold one's interest. ~ AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

Slow Drag was one of trumpeter Donald Byrd's final hard bop dates. Teamed with altoist Sonny Red, pianist Cedar Walton, bassist Walter Booker and drummer Billy Higgins (who takes a surprise vocal on the title cut), this quintet outing features originals by Byrd, Walton and Red along with the standards "Secret Love" and "My Ideal." The music in general finds Byrd looking both backwards toward the blues and forwards toward modal music and hints of the avant-garde. A fine effort. ~ AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

Hard Bop | Country: USA | Label: Mosaic Records - MCD-1007

This album, originally released by Epic, features trombonist-arranger Slide Hampton's augmented octet but it was overlooked when it was released in 1962 despite the all-star personnel. Hampton's arrangements are forward-looking hard bop and among the key soloists are tenor saxophonist Yusef Lateef (who is heard throughout in top form), drummer Max Roach and Hampton himself. The five-part "Drum Suite" is the most ambitious work but all of the arrangements have their unexpected moments, and Hampton's playing on an up-tempo "It's All Right with Me" is outstanding. This limited-edition Mosaic release, just a single CD, augments the original set with a version of "Well You Needn't" that was only out previously on an obscure sampler, plus a previously unreleased "Sleigh Ride" from the same dates. Overall the music is rewarding and if not quite essential, there are enough exciting moments (whether from the ensembles or the main soloists) to make this a recommended acquisition. ~ AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

Do you remember the film The Thomas Crowne Affair? The original—not the 1999 remake—starred Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway, and contained the 1968 Academy Award-winning song "Windmills of Your Mind" by Dusty Springfield. I bring that up because this live performance by Daniel Carter, William Parker, and Matthew Shipp brings to mind the lyrics: "Like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel / Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel / As the images unwind, like the circles that you find / In the windmills of your mind."
