Dave DouglasDD/50 – 50th Birthday Recordings (Be Still/Time Travel/Pathways/DVD/bonus download) ... CD
Greenleaf, 2013. New Copy 3 CD & DVD ... $32.99 49.98
Dave Douglas is fifty – and he's celebrating with this very cool limited package of music and image! The set features three different albums, plus a bonus DVD – all in a sweet box, too! First up is Be Still – quite a compelling project from trumpeter Dave Douglas – a record that has him working strongly with singer/guitarist Aoife O'Donovan, whose presence really helps transform the sound of the set! Aoife's got a folksy touch on her vocals, and colors things in with some great earthy tones that are a surprisingly good fit for Douglas' lines on trumpet – sometimes jazzy, sometimes sparkling with a rich sense of American history – yet delivered in a subtle, linear way. Next is Time Travel – a really in the pocket session that's filled with rhythmic intensity, and some of the boldest music we've heard from Dave in years! There's plenty of edges to the set – especially the trumpet of Douglas and tenor of Jon Irabgon – but there's also a groove to many numbers too – a kind of forward-rolling energy that really takes the whole thing to great points throughout the set, and which makes a great progression from the somber tone of Dave's last album – almost a musical rebirth of sorts! The third album in the set is Pathways – beautiful tones and colors from a sextet that also features Greg Tardy on tenor and clarinet, Joshua Roseman on trombone, Uri Caine on piano, Linda Oh on bass, and Clarence Penn on drums – all players who are nicely sensitive to Douglas' ideas here, and bring together a fresh wave of ideas from previous records. DVD features both Quintet performances (with Jon Irabgon and Matt Mitchell) and Sextet material (with Greg Tardy, Joshua Roseman, and Uri Caine) – recorded in studio performances and music videos too!

New Matt UleryWake An Echo ... CD
Greenleaf, 2013. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Really great stuff from bassist Matt Ulery – a player with an imagination as rich as his sound, and an artist who's really becoming a force on the scene here in Chicago! Matt works here in that mix of arrangements and freedom used by some of his contemporaries on the left side of the scene – but he's also got a wider vision, too – one that has the longer pieces stretching out with a compositional vision that goes way beyond just small combo jazz – a really wonderful sense of tones, timings, and layers – served up by a quintet that includes Geoff Bradfield on bass clarinet, Marquis Hill on trumpet, Rob Clearfield on piano and accordion, and Jon Dellemyer on drums. The mix of bass clarinet and trumpet is wonderful – all fluttery and shimmery over the blocky rhythms of the group – and the record has a bold sense of energy that never lets up. Titles include "In Every Lonely Chamber", "Coriander", "Over Under Other", "My Favorite Stranger", "Carefree", and "All The Riven". CD

New Linda OhSun Pictures ... CD
Greenleaf, 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful sounds from bassist Linda Oh – a very vivid set that definitely lives up to the pictures promised in the title! Oh's got this way of painting in sound that we really love – sometimes in a straighter jazz formation, sometimes with a more lyrical, open brush that really makes for magic in the music – an approach that few others could handle this way without falling into older cliches or overly-sentimental passages – but which Linda makes come across with the same sort of edge as her music with others. The group maintains the right sort of feel to realize Oh's vision – with Ben Wendel on trumpet, James Muller on guitar, and Ted Poor on drums – all very versatile players, especially Muller – whose tones really do a lot for the record. Titles include "Blue Over Gold", "Footfall", "Polyphonic HMI", "Shutterspeed Dreams", and "10 Minutes Till Closing". CD
