Jim SnideroLive At The Deer Head Inn ... CD
Savant, 2021. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Alto saxophonist Jim Snidero has a hell of a rhythm section on this recent live date – Orrin Evans on piano, Peter Washington on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums – a trio who really set things on fire, right from the very first note! It's great to hear the three players working together with each other here – as they all seem to bring out different qualities than you might hear otherwise – especially Evans and Farnsworth, who seem really moved by the presence of the always rock-solid Washington! Snidero's great too – crafting these sharp lines on alto that link back to an older hardbop mode, but also have plenty of his own personality too – often the fullness and fluidity you might expect to normally hear from a tenor. Tracks include "Idle Moments", "My Old Flame", "Yesterdays", "Now's The Time", "Autumn Leaves", and "Bye Bye Blackbird". CD

Jim SnideroStrings ... CD
Milestone/Savant, 2003. Used ... $4.99
A really fantastic record from reedman Jim Snidero – one that hints at its sound with the "strings" in the title – even though that's just a really tiny part of the overall picture! There's lots more going on here than just a saxophonist with strings – this isn't a laidback ballad session, with Jim blowing familiar tunes in a late nite mode – and instead, his work on alto (and a bit of flute) is very firmly ingrained in the larger charts on the set – strings handled by Laura Seaton, but set to tunes that are almost all originals by Jim himself – and given this great core energy from a quartet that includes Renee Rosnes on piano, Paul Gill on bass, and Billy Drummond on drums. Titles include "Slipping Away", "Theme For Ernie", "Forever Gone", "Ventura", and the three-part "River Suite". CD

✨✧ Toshiko AkiyoshiTen Gallon Shuffle ... LP
Ascent, 1984. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A hokey title and cover, but a great little record – a lesser-known gem from the Toshiko Akioshi big band, recorded in the mid 80s for Japanese release! Toshiko's still working strongly with reedman Lew Tabackin here – and as always, the sound of the reeds really make the record – not only on the bold ensemble passages, but also on the snakey, well-crafted solos that slide out of the fuller arrangements – letting Lew, Frank Wess, and Jim Snidero contribute some really great work on the longer tracks. Titles include "Ten Gallon Shuffle", "Fading Beauty", "Blue Dream", and "Happy Hoofer" – and in case you're wondering, that's a young Monday Michiru on the cover! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a light corner bump and some aging, but looks nice overall.)

✨✧ Brian LynchOmni-American Book Club – My Journey Through Literature & Music ... CD
Hollistic Music Works, 2019. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brian Lynch has really grown and grown over the years – not just as a musician, although his trumpet work is superb – but also as an arranger and greater visionary force in music, which is definitely the case in this double-length set! Lynch wrote and arranged the whole extended suite – which draws inspiration from the works of WEB DuBois, Ta Nehisi Coates, Albert Murray, Naomi Klein, Ralph Ellison, Amiri Baraka, and other writers who've shaped his understanding of out nation and culture – which is then expressed by Lynch with a great large group that features tenor and soprano from Gary Keller, alto and flute from Tom Kelley, trombone from Dante Luciani, and piano from Alex Brown – plus guest work from Regina Carter on violin, David Liebman on soprano, Jim Snidero and Donald Harrison on alto, and Orlando Maraca Valle on flute. The presence of all those great guests clearly illustrates a strong faith in Lynch's vision – and they all bring their very strong voices to songs that include "Crucible For Crisis", "pPening Up", "Africa My Land", "Woody Shaw", "Tribute To Blue", "The Trouble With Elysium", and "The Struggle Is In Your Name".
