On the Corner (1972)
ON THE CORNER enjoys a special cult status among musicians, anticipating as it does the punk funk/acid jazz movements. For Miles Davis, ON THE CORNER was another seismic shift. Miles was particularly fond of the lyric sweep of Hendrixian electric ...

When You're Smiling
Of the many recordings Duke Jordan did for the Steeplechase label while living in Copenhagen as an expatriate, he did two with bassist Jesper Lundgaard and drummer Billy Hart, and they are both included on this double-CD set. Those recordings ...
David Liebman is at his best in pastoral, ethereal situations. This trio session, recorded in 1992 and '93, contains both lengthy tunes and shorter works in which Liebman's intense soprano sax and flute and more robust tenor solos are nicely ...

On her fourth SteepleChase release, pianist LeeAnn Ledgerwood is heard with a highly esteemed rhythm section: Ron McClure on bass and Billy Hart on drums. The spirit of John Coltrane looms large on this trio outing -- Ledgerwood plays stirring ...
Perpetually Hip (2006)
For the uninitiated, it's understandable to assume that the artists on Steve Vai's record label, Favored Nations, must be from the same hard-rocking, six-string shredding variety. But this is certainly not the case, as evidenced by the 2006 double-disc release ...
Concerto Retitled (1970)
As Joe Zawinul's electric band Weather Report gathered momentum in the '70s, Atlantic put together a single-LP anthology of Zawinul's earlier two albums for Atlantic and one for Vortex. The irony, of course, is that the Zawinul of most of ...

Bud's Beautiful (1996)
An extremely well-done trio CD covering 11 of Bud Powell's tunes, including both well-known and infrequently heard songs. LaVerne's run through "Celia" showcases his dazzling technique, while he's equal to handling the low-key ballad "I'll Keep Loving You," which is ...
Plug Me In/High Voltage (1999)
Recorded live at The Village Gate, New York, New York and Shelly's Manne-Hole, Hollywood, California. Originally released on Atlantic (1529).

As an acoustic pianist in modern jazz, Werner has few peers, but not the proper acclaim. Perhaps this CD will do it: it's an exquisitely crafted date with several trio tracks (Drew Gress on bass and Billy Hart on drums,) ...
