Ralph BowenRalph Bowen ... CD
Posi tone, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99 16.99
The title and cover here are super-simple, but the sound is anything but – a continuing evolution of the talents of tenorist Ralph Bowen, who just seems to grab us more and more with each new album! The core of the record is the long "Phylogeny Suite", which has some of the most complex writing we've ever heard from Bowen – almost like he's hitting a second chapter of his career, while still finding a way to soulfully swing with the quality that first made us love him a number of years ago. There's almost a Monk-like sense of angularity at points – accented by the piano work of Jim Ridl, who plays in the quartet alongside Kenny Davis on bass and Cliff Almond on drums. Titles include "A Cast Of Crabs", "A Leap Of Leopards", "Cache Cache", "A Rookery Of Ravens", and a version of McCoy Tyner's "Search For Peace". CD

✨✧ Michael DeaseReaching Out ... CD
Posi tone, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Michael Dease is fast becoming one of our favorite trombonists in recent years – and he's a player with both an amazing ability to evoke so many traditions on his instrument, while also leaving his own special mark as well! Here, Dease takes off in very comfortable company – a combo that features some great Posi-Tone labelmates – including Ralph Bowen on tenor, Walt Weiskopf on alto and tenor, Behn Gillece on vibes, and Luther Allison on piano – all players who work together seamlessly in the ensemble, to realize the richer vision of Michael's increasing skills as an arranger! The lead trombone solos are still quite strong, but they're also part of the larger puzzle in a great way too – a bit like some of the music we love from Conrad Herwig – and rhythm in the group is provided by Peter Brendler on bass and Zach Aldeman on drums. Titles include "Water Runs Dry", "Something In Common", "Morning Shade", "Double Luminosity", "Blackfoot", "The Chameleon Eye", and "The Takeover". CD

✨✧ Takayuki YagiNew Departure ... CD
Jazz Tokyo (Japan), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An album that really lives up to its title – as the whole thing really takes off right from the start, with a freshness that comes both from the writing of Japanese pianist Takayuki Yagi, and his strength as a leader! The group here features American players – Ralph Bowen on tenor, Scott Wendholt on trumpet, Jay Anderson on bass, and Billy Drummond on drums – but it's clear that Yagi's the guiding force of the album, and he gets performances from all players that match, if not top, their own work as leaders in recent years! The balance of sound and soul is wonderful – and original tunes include "Beyond The New Horizons", "View From Newark", "130 E 7th Street", "Kyoto Tower", and "Music On The 7th Floor" – plus versions of Duke Pearson's "Is That So", Larry Young's "Litha", and Frederick Waits' "Two Faces Of Nasheet".
