✨✧ Dave Douglas United FrontBrass Ecstasy At Newport (LP style sleeve ... CD
Greenleaf, 2011. Used ... $6.99
Brass Ecstasy indeed – a really wonderful group with trumpet from Dave Douglas, French horn from Vincent Chaney, trombone from Luis Bonilla, and tuba from Marcus Rojas – plus a bit of added drums from Nasheet Waits! With instrumentation like that, there's a definite dose of New Orleans roots in the music – yet there's also a lot of Douglas' compelling modernism at play, too – kind of a tension between the timeless and the immediate – handled here with a heck of a lot more soul than usual from Dave! There's no overdone cliches, no hokey brass band modes, just a really compelling array of sounds that reminds us that great musicians can always work new wonders with older formats. Titles include "Rava", "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry", "United Front", "Bowie", and "Spirit Moves". CD

Ryan Keberle & CatharsisInto The Zone ... CD
Greenleaf, 2014. Used ... $4.99
Tryan Keberle's a trombonist, but one with a very light touch on his instrument – so much so that he blends wonderfully with the trumpet of Mike Rodriguez in this quartet – dancing along in a flurry of rhythms and colors with a bright, joyous sort of vibe! Like other albums on the Greenleaf label of late, this set's moving way past straight jazz – although there's still a very strong jazz center at the core. Bits of voice from Camila Meza come in and further warm the colors in the music – and the wonderful interplay between the bass or Jorge Roeder and drums of Eric Doob go way past the usual too. Titles include "Inevitable Blues", "Without A Thought", "Simple Sermon", "Cheryl", "Zone", and "Ballad Of The Sad Young Men". CD

Donny McCaslinPerpetual Motion ... CD
Greenleaf, 2011. Used ... $7.99
A sharp set led by tenor sax player Donny McCaslin on the always worthwhile Greenleaf label – and really brilliant showcase for the incredibly talented leader and an exceptional group of players. The title track is a monster, a piece with enormous space for McClaslin to doing his thing muscularly, but paced well enough to leave plenty of room for more subtle interplay. The players include Adam Benjamin and Uri Caine on Fender Rhodes and piano (the Rhodes sounds are terrific throughout), Tim Lefebvre on bass, Antonio Sanchez and Mark Guiliana on drums, and David Binney on alto and electronics. Includes the excellent 12+ minute title track plus "Five Hands Down", "Firefly", "Energy Generation", "Impossible Machine", "For Someone", "LZCM", "Memphis Redux", "For Someone" and more. CD

Matt UleryIn The Ivory ... CD
Greenleaf, 2014. New Copy 2 CDs ... $13.99 15.98
Matt Ulery just keeps on getting better and better – to a point where his music may well be a genre unto itself! This album's got Matt working with a larger ensemble – a mix of woodwind and string players, augmented with some key vocal passages as well – a double-length record that's mostly instrumental, but which has these beautiful songs step forth at just the right points – with lyrics delivered by Sarah Marie Young and Grazyna Auguscik. Matt leads the group, plays bass, and provides some slight backing vocals – and the mix of cello, violin, piano, clarinet, and flute is sublime throughout. Titles include "Gave Proof", "The Farm", "Innocent", "Black Squirrel", "Resilin", "When Everything Is Just The Same", "Viscous", "Seeker", "Sweet Bitter", and "Mary Shelly". CD
