Her powerful voice, with its two-and-a-half-octave range, allows Ms. Morrison to belt out down-home, soul-stirring blues in a manner which places her firmly in the tradition of Etta Jones, Helen Humes, Irene Reid, and Dinah Washington. Her impassioned renditions of favorite torch songs reveal a consummate musicianship and a firm grasp of a song’s deepest meaning. Over the years, Ms. Morrison has performed with legends such as Gerald Wilson, Dizzy Gillespie, Ray Charles, James Moody, Ron Carter, Etta James, Esther Phillips, Jimmy Smith, Dr. John, Kenny Burrell, Terence Blanchard, Joe Sample, Cedar Walton, Tony Bennett, and Keb’ Mo. On “I Love You, Yes I Do,” Ms. Morrison is once again partnered by the soulful tenor saxophone of Houston Person who brings his own unique brand of bluesy exuberance to the proceedings.

10. He's My Guy

He's My Guy

LAFAYETTE HARRIS JR. You Can’t Lose with the Blues Savant Records SCD 2178 Lafayette Harris Jr., piano Peter Washington, bass Lewis Nash, drums TRACKS: He's My Guy • I Love You Yes I Do • Blues for Barry Harris • Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying • Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye • Things Ain't What They Used to Be • Love Me in a Special Way • Bloomdido • You Can't Lose with the Blues • Wonder Why • Please Send Me Someone to Love • The Juicy Blues Baltimorean pianist LAFAYETTE HARRIS JR. is known for an energetic sense of rhythmic vitality, a tasty, full bodied musical approach to the keyboard, and a sensibility drenched in the blues. A staple at the Lenox Lounge in Harlem for a number of years as well as a member of various aggregations led by Max Roach, Harris’ new recording reflects this experience as well as a myriad of influences, from boogie-woogie legend Sammy Price to Kenny Barron and Barry Harris, all of whom encouraged Lafayette as an up-and-coming player. Bassist Peter Washington brings a forceful sense of rhythm and lyrically rounded solos to the date, and drummer Lewis Nash keeps the rhythms swinging strongly and as steady as a Swiss watch. A thoughtful setlist and sterling sound from the Van Gelder Studio makes this a self-recommending album.

Always On My Mind

JEREMY PELT – The Art of Intimacy, Vol. 1 HighNote Records HCD 7334 JEREMY PELT, trumpet GEORGE CABLES, piano PETER WASHINGTON, bass Track Listing 1. Love is Simple 5:54 2. Little Girl Blue 7:18 3. Always On My Mind 6:02 4. I've Just Seen Her 4:01 5. Then I'll Be Tired of You 4:36 6. Ebony Moonbeams 6:49 7. While You Are Gone 5:53 8. Ab-o-lutely 8:02 9. I'll Never Stop Loving You 3:48 Jeremy Pelt's unquenchable curiosity has made him one of the most multi-faceted of jazz artists. Whether it be as a leader, a sideman, an accompanist or a composer, Pelt has investigated nearly every aspect and genre in jazz from electric to ecletic, Be-Bop to Free-Bop. Here Pelt joins forces with the legendary George Cables on piano and Peter Washington laying down the bass lines. All but one tune on the setlist are slow-ish numbers but this is not your father's ballad record. Each member of the trio is able to pour some old wine into new bottles, aware of and perhaps shaped by the past but operating very much in the moment. Together with Cables' lush voicings and solid tone and Washinton's always-inspired bass lines and solos, Pelt's new recording sets a high bar for all trio recordings that follow in the remainder of 2020.

JIM SNIDERO -- Project-K Savant Records SCD 2185 Jim Snidero, alto saxophone Dave Douglas, trumpet Orrin Evans, piano Linda May Han Oh, bass Rudy Royston, drums Do Yeon Kim, gayageum Track Listing 1. Han 7:46 2. DMZ 6:49 3. Jeju 6:49 4. Mother 5:57 5. Jenga 5:41 6. Seoulfu 6:44 7. Goofy 7:10 8. Han O Bak Nyun 6:30 With Project-K, Jim Snidero breaks new ground. Absorbing and refracting varied aspects of Korean folkways, he delves into a topic near and dear to his home and heart. “Having a Korean wife, family and friends, I've been immersed in Korean culture for more than 20 years,” he shares. “Between Korean history, culture and philosophy, I felt that there was much to explore musically.” Bridging his own wide-ranging aesthetic with those very traditions, Snidero turns out one of the most distinctive dates of his career. In choosing the personnel to flesh out this music, Snidero's decisions proved shrewd and sound. The rhythm section, comprised of pianist Orrin Evans, bassist Linda May Han Oh and drummer Rudy Royston, brings a rare balance of sensitivity, strength and insight to these ventures. And trumpeter Dave Douglas serves as the perfect front line foil for the saxophonist. “I wanted to use a traditional Korean instrument on Project-K and the gayageum appealed to me the most. My goal was to fully integrate the instrument within some of the arrangements,” says Snidero, and Do Yeon Kim was the natural choice. As a group, we were all able to create what I believe is both unique and inspired music.”
