“I’m grateful for the abundance of good that there is in the world and I feel privileged to experience it every day.” These words, from the liner notes of Ernesto Cervini’s new Turboprop album, Abundance, describe the feeling and purpose behind the Canadian drummer’s new release.

Gratitude is on full display, as Cervini again features all of his band members as instrumentalists, featured soloists and composer/arrangers in this gorgeous collection of 8 songs. As Cervini states, “although I am the band-leader, Turboprop truly feels like a collective due to the passion, commitment, and love everybody brings to each performance.”

Following the critical success and JUNO nomination of the group’s sophomore release, Rev, this album cleverly mixes three standards (including an incredible new arrangement of pianist Geoff Keezer's tour de force solo performance of Harold Arlen's My Shining Hour) and original material written by the band, including 2 by Cervini himself. Those 2 originals are both dedications: Gramps, for Cervini’s late grandfather; and Song for Cito - that’s Cito Gaston, the manager of the Toronto Blue Jays’ back to back World Series winning teams from the early 1990’s.

Taxicab tires hiss on wet pavement as you descend an unassuming staircase on an unassuming side street in Greenwich Village. Entering the club, you shrug off your coat, damp from the mist that is turning to rainfall outside—no matter. You’ve arrived.

Inside, candlelight and shadows dance on the walls and you find a seat at a corner table. You order a Manhattan on the rocks and survey the room. At eleven o’clock on any given weeknight, your fellow patrons run the gamut: clandestine lovers, surely hiding from the scrutiny of midtown’s glare; young musicians awaiting the after-hours jam session and a chance to blow a few choruses of bebop; older musicians, finished with their gigs and communing among themselves; a melancholy neighborhood drunk or two; and the serious listeners who, day jobs be damned, stayed for the music that only happens at this hour.

And that’s why you’re here: the music. Notes suspended in midair like silvery dewdrops on a spider web in the moonlight. Antique songs, unfurled languidly, taking their time. Sad. Seductive. Funny. Contemplative. Music for night people.

The pianist touches the keys. The singer smiles and takes a breath. Welcome to the late set.

The minute you hear its opener “The House That Jack Built,” you’ll know that these people are in it for the boogie-down, soul-climbing pleasure of it all —not to mention the passionate unswerving love of Aretha Franklin”
Jeff Simon, The Buffalo News

In the lexicon of soul A is for Aretha. Bringing together Hammond B3 player and pianist Bruce Katz (Gregg Allman) and saxophonist Joel Frahm (Jane Monheit, Brad Mehldau), Project A gives the Queen of Soul’s music the royal treatment. Backed by guitar, horns, 2 bassists and 2 drummers, Katz and Frahm lead this rare summit of Jazz, Soul and Blues. Legendary bassist Jerry Jemmott (Aretha Franklin, King Curtis) joins the session, propelling the music forward with his celebrated soulful playing. The music is sophisticated, soulful, moving and funky, a befitting tribute to its inspiration.

In April 2017, Clarinet superstar Anat Cohen released two albums which celebrate and examine her connection to Brazil and its music.

On Rosa Dos Ventos, Cohen joins forces with cutting edge Brazilian ensemble "Trio Brasileiro" to explore Brazil's traditional Choro music and its modern reflections.

Trio Brasileiro was formed in 2011 and is dedicated to performing traditional Choro music as well as their own contemporary compositions, inspired by Choro. The trio comprises of Douglas Lora - a celebrated guitarist and full time member of the award-winning Brasil Guitar Duo, Dudu Maia - one of Brazil’s finest mandolin virtuosos, and Drummer/Percussionist Alexandre Lora.

Choro music originated in 19th-century Rio de Janeiro. Very much like its contemporaries the Dixieland and early New Orleans jazz, it was created by the combination of traditional European dance forms like the polka, the waltz and the mazurka with African and South American rhythms. It is traditionally a vehicle for virtuosi improvisers.

Cohen has long been associated with the music of Brazil in general and Choro in particular. Her solo releases often include Brazilian or Brazilian-inspired compositions, often penned by Cohen.

This is the trio and Cohen's second recorded collaboration, following their 2015 release Alegria Da Casa, which featured combination of traditional Choros and originals inspired by the traditional form. Rosa Dos Ventos is a fascinating next step in the evolution of this collaboration; it features only original compositions by the members of Trio Brasileiro and Anat Cohen.

The instrumentation on Rosa Dos Ventos is a take on the traditional Choro band - the characteristic 7-string guitar, clarinet, and Pandeiro are present. The traditional Bandolim (a Brazilian take on the Mandolin) in replaced by an unusual 10-String Bandolim (the traditional Bandolim has 4 sets of 2 strings for a total of 8), and the Pandeiro is joined by additional percussion instruments - among them the intriguing new pitched percussion instrument the “Hand Pan.”

The compositions move from the traditional to the daringly modern. Some contemporary indie-rock influences are present, traditional bitter-sweet Choros can be heard, the blues makes an appearance, Flamenco is explored, and indian-inspired drone-heavy compositions are offered. While travelling through these various styles and traditions, the musicians remain rooted in the improvisatory, virtuosic, grooving and deeply moving choro tradition. The genre-defying result is Choro – reimagined.

The connection between Moacir Santos and the guitar has been on my mind ever since I heard Baden Powell play Moacir Santos's music on the album “Baden Powell swings with Jimmy Pratt.”

I've always loved the rich orchestral sounds of Moacir's compositions but could not imagine how to transfer the large ensemble sound I heard into my solo guitar. Last year, reading Moacir Santos's scores directly from his songbook, I was surprised how perfectly it fit the 7-string guitar, in the original key, as if the music was composed for the instrument.

I spent a year working on that repertoire and when Anat visited Brazil, I proposed that we get together so I could show her the arrangements I’d been working on. The clarinet was Moacir’s first instrument. If his compositions sounded so beautiful on the guitar, I could only imagine how special they would sound played by Anat on the clarinet. Anat proposed meeting directly at a recording studio and so we did. When we started playing, Anat, who has known me for many years, said: “I have never seen you so happy!” I responded: “I’ve never been!” This recording documents those two happy days in the studio.

I hope you enjoy listening to this music as much as we enjoyed playing it.

One of the most in-demand drummers in New York –
tapped by Angélique Kidjo, Sting and Anat Cohen – Daniel Freedman presents his third album as a leader, the
rhythmically infectious Imagine That. The release draws
on a world of music: tune-rich originals that channel
African, Middle Eastern, Latin and Indian grooves, as well
as an astoundingly fresh version of a rarely covered Radiohead song (“Codex”).
Freedman, born and bred in New York City, leads an international quintet that features guitarist-vocalist Lionel Loueke (from Benin), keyboardist Jason Lindner (Brooklyn), bassist Omer Avital (Israel) and percussionist Gilmar Gomes (Brazil). Benin-born vocal star Angélique Kidjo, with whom Freedman has toured the world as drummer in her band, sings “Baby Aya,” a dancing lullaby he wrote for his infant daughter. Imagine That is the follow-up to Freedman’s 2012 Anzic album, Bamako by Bus, which garnered his band a showcase live on NPR.

One of the most difficult things to achieve in the art of musical performance is simplicity. The balance between technical skills and the spirit of the music is an elusive goal. I am very pleased to hear that Anat Cohen, Dudu Maia, Douglas Lora and Alexandre Lora have brilliantly achieved that goal in Alegria da Casa, the recording that I am listening to right now.

The music of Brazil is rich, varied and draws its inspirations from many different sources. Mastering its many idioms is a daunting task, even for Brazilians. However, when I hear the joy and bounciness of these tracks, I feel transported not to a serious concert hall, but to a happy gathering of friends in a botequim, or corner bar in a small Brazilian town, where the music flows spontaneously and everyone takes part in the roda, or circle of musicians. This is the soul that permeates this record, and that is why it is so enjoyable for me, a Brazilian musician in Seattle, to put it on, close my eyes and join the party. You can picture the smiles on the players’ faces as they captured these sounds. This music can be enjoyed by anyone, anywhere.

The Selection of great choro classics (Santa Morena, Murmurando) and original compositions is finely balanced We hear what we would expect, but then we are surprised by new pieces that coexist nicely in the recording as a whole.

I hope that everyone that hears it enjoys it as much as I do.

Sure-footed swing, sweet-toned harmony and ever-insouciant charm are embodied in the new jazz vocal trio Duchess, featuring notable New York singers Amy Cervini, Hilary Gardner and Melissa Stylianou. The group’s debut album – Duchess, channels the 1930s inspiration of the virtuosic Boswell Sisters into a wonderfully entertaining and contemporary package. Produced and arranged by Oded Lev-Ari, who helmed previous acclaimed Anzic releases by Cervini and Stylianou, Duchess pairs the vocal trio with an ace New York band: pianist Michael Cabe, bassist Paul Sikivie and drummer Matt Wilson, plus saxophonist Jeff Lederer and guitarist Jessie Lewis. The songs of Duchess range from the Peggy Lee number “I Love Being Here With You” and Johnny Mercer’s “P.S. I Love You” to new twists on “Que Sera, Sera” and the indelible standard “I’ll Be Seeing You.” There’s a playful Gershwin rarity with “Blah, Blah, Blah” and a direct Boswell Sisters homage with their arrangement of “Heebie Jeebies.” And there are solo spots for each of the Duchess ladies with “My Brooklyn Love Song” (Gardner), “A Doodlin’ Song” (Cervini) and “Humming to Myself” (Stylianou). A blend of the vintage and the fresh, Duchess is a fizzing cocktail of an album.

Onstage or on record, the music of Anat Cohen positively glows – with virtuosity, with charisma, with the sheer joy of creation – and never more brightly than on her seventh album as a bandleader, Luminosa. On Luminosa, Anat plays dancing originals, interprets Brazilian classics by the likes of Milton Nascimento, and even re-imagines electronica as acoustica with an ingenious arrangement of a Flying Lotus tune. Members from Anat’s touring quartet – keyboardist Jason Lindner, bassist Joe Martin and drummer Daniel Freedman – appear on the album, as do guest guitarists Romero Lubambo and Gilad Hekselman, percussionist Gilmar Gomes and the Brazilian players of her new band Choro Aventuroso. Anat has been named the top clarinetist in both the readers and critics polls in DownBeat, the jazz bible, for multiple years running. And her fluency in the jazz tradition is utterly at one with her flair for Brazilian music. As the Brazilian Press has declared: “Anat is an Israeli who seems like a Brazilian when she plays samba.” A true citizen of the world, Anat speaks a universal language through her horn.

Acclaimed singer Hilary Gardner grew up in Wasilla, Alaska infatuated with New York City. In 2010, Hilary was chosen by the Frank Sinatra estate to appear as the live, onstage singer in Tony-award winner Twyla Tharp’s Come Fly Away.

Her solo recording debut The Great City is part love letter, part lament to New York and the big dreams it represents. The album has garnered effusive praise from New York’s jazz community, including Will Friedwald (Wall St. Journal) and Terry Teachout (Arts Journal, Wall St. Journal).

The fifth album from singer Melissa Stylianou – No Regrets – is all about the joy of spontaneity and making the most of the moment. The Canadian-born, New York-based vocalist recorded a set of jazz standards and other favorites in a live-to-two-track, noon-to-night studio session – old-school – backed by an ultra-simpatico trio of New York all-stars: pianist Bruce Barth, double-bassist Linda Oh and drummer Matt Wilson, with stylish guest spots by clarinetist Anat Cohen and alto saxophonist Billy Drewes.

Past albums have seen her put a personal spin on songs from Björk and Joanna Newsom to Johnny Cash to Tom Waits, not to mention her own lovely original compositions. Jazz standards have been a part of the mix, too, but No Regrets – intimately produced by Oded Lev-Ari – sees Stylianou delve into vintage material like never before. She sings songs by likes of the Gershwins, Jerome Kern and Duke Ellington, along with a Billie Holiday tune, a vocal twist on Thelonious Monk, the indigo-hued chestnut “A Nightingale Can Sing the Blues” and, as a left-field inclusion, as a left-field inclusion, a folk setting of Yeats, “Down by the Salley Gardens.” This beautiful album once again underscores why DownBeat has called her a “sophisticated storyteller” and an “original.”

Dark Nights is the soul-deep third album from rising-star trumpeter Avishai Cohen’s trio Triveni with bassist Omer Avital and drummer Nasheet Waits. Dark Nights also features guest performances by superstar clarinetist Anat Cohen and pianist Gerald Clayton. Avishai is also joined by French-Israeli singer-songwriter Keren Ann for a duet on “I Fall in Love Too Easily,” which sees the two indulging their shared love of Chet Baker. The purview of Dark Nights is wide, from intimate lyricism to electrifying virtuosity, from jazz standards to progressive originals. The classic balladry of Billy Strayhorn’s “Lush Life” and Charles Mingus’s “Goodbye Pork Pie Hat” rubs shoulders with electronics-stoked compositions from Avishai’s pen that groove hard and burn slow, by turns. The New York Times has praised him as “an extravagantly skilled trumpeter, relaxed and soulful. . . deftly combining sensitivity and flair,” while DownBeat raved over the previous Triveni release, saying: “Cohen and company improvise together so wonderfully that they often sound shocked at their collective inventions.” Avishai is a member of the hit 3 Cohens band with his siblings Anat and Yuval, as well as the all-star SF Jazz Collective.

Free-spirited, genre-defying singer Amy Cervini – praised as “an honest, self-assured and honey-dripping presence” by All Music Guide – continues to broaden the idea of what a jazz singer can be with her fourth album, Jazz Country. Jazz Country is a collection of “North Americana” that finds the Toronto-bred, New York-based singer in league with guitarist Jesse Lewis and bassist Matt Aronoff, as well as such guests as jazz clarinet superstar Anat Cohen and beloved theatrical singer-songwriter Nellie McKay, among others. Cervini and company perform country, folk and pop tunes with a sense of storytelling, melody and atmosphere to the fore. Jazz Country features songs by the likes of Hank Williams (“I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry”) and Johnny Cash (“I Still Miss Someone”), Neil Young (“After the Gold Rush”) and Carrie Underwood (“Before He Cheats”). There are also kindred-spirit originals, inspired novelties and irresistible versions of evergreens, including “Blue Moon,” “Smile” and the theme from Baghdad Café, “Calling You.” Time Out New York has praised Cervini’s work for “tearing down boundaries between old and new jazz styles, rock, pop, country and more – a reminder of Duke Ellington’s old axiom that there’s just two kinds of music, good and bad.”

Channeling a venerable tradition in jazz, Stylianou also puts her own lyrics to the music of celebrated composers, breathing fresh emotional life into instrumental pieces by Edgar Meyer and Vince Mendoza.

“…this music succeeds on its own, as a finely realized ambitious chamber project showcasing the virtuosity and stylistic range of a trumpeter who’s one of the most exciting voices ton the horn to emerge in this new century.” – George Kanzler Hot House Jazz Magazine

“…trumpeter Avishai Cohen’s pure, sweet trumpet tone and bent notes allow him to create sound pictures that depict gentle raindrops, a giant deluge, the eventual overflow and final sunshine to complete the cycle” – Jim Santella, All About Jazz

In part two of his “Big Rain” trilogy, trumpeter Avishai Cohen presents an intensely intimate recording featuring an unusual Piano (Yonatan Avishai) Percussion (Daniel Freedman) and Trumpet trio. The music, described by Cohen as “an instrumental meditation born of two notes” is haunting, touching and deeply spiritual, exposing yet another side of what DownBeat Magazine calls a “Singular Musicianship.”

There was an era in American popular culture when pop music was something completely different than what it has become today; when an outstanding instrumentalist could be a pop star no less than a vocalist; when even headlining singers were expected to be complete musicians and instrumentalists were expected to be entertainers.

YO! BOBBY is evidence that this performance ethic hasn’t entirely been lost to time. The members of the band revel in the joy that comes from the combination of jazz, showmanship and the Great American Songbook. The band lineup includes saxophonists Anat Cohen and Joel Frahm, trumpeter Avishai Cohen, keyboardists Jason Lindner and Manuel Valera, who share duties on various keyboards (piano and Wurlitzer electric piano), bassist Barak Mori and drummer Daniel Freedman. Scott Robinson (Baritone Sax) and Vic Juris (Guitar) make guest appearances
