Bruno Raberg - CHRYSALIS:  Bassist Raberg's debut CD features 9 great originals, in an allstar nonet performance that will be a most proud addition to your jazz collection.  The music is totally pro, & full of wonderful little nuances, especially from players like the guitarist, Mike Goodrick!  This one was released in late 2004, probably hit the streets early this year.  When Bruno "walks in" with his beautiful bass licks, your ears will sit up & listen - he plays with more vigor & magick than you can imagine!  The title track starts off sparse & full of mystery, then moves to a more full-bodied sound.  The players here are all excellent & no one "steps" on the other players.  High talent & great energies abound... you'll be pleased you got this CD.  I rate it as MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for jazz fans of all persuasions.  Excellent work - we hope to hear much, MUCH more!  Get more info, or purchase the CD at www.orbismusic.com     Rotcod Zzaj

Jess Rowland - PIANO IMPROVISATIONS:  Any CD from our pals at Pax Recordings can be expected to have something "different" on it.  Jess' piano works certainly fill that bill... totally freestyle piano improv, moving from start to finish with "no mercy".  I don't mean that in a negative sense (at all), either... it's just that Rowland's playing starts, proceeds & stops - there's no hesitation... no spots where you feel like the composer is "deliberating", or "thinking through" the next few notes.  If you put yourself in the right frame of mind before you sit down to listen, the playing will invade your consciousness, and flow in, out, around and through your brain cells very palatably.  What I found was that about 2 days after listening to these tracks, my dreams were then influenced by what I'd heard.  The playing is more "full-bodied" than many solo piano improvisation works I've reviewed before, too... lots of chords & harmonics... this will make it far more accessible for listeners who might elsewise be "scared off".  I'm highly impressed, & hope we're able to hear much more from Jess Rowland.  I give this one a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!  Contact via e-mail to either antidada@gmail.com  or info@paxrecordings.com   You can also purchase this wonderful CD at www.paxrecordings.com     Rotcod Zzaj

Bone Daddy - "I":  All th' way from Idaho, this quartet's debut CD came... this is actually a fairly old release (2002), but their retro style kinda' "transcends" time lines.  The most notable thing about this album (I think) is that they've got very well crafted tunes & lyrics.  The guitar solos (by Doug Lampman) have sections where they're positively scorching... but, that's not the emphasis here, actually; the focus is more on creating a sound that will carry you back to the "good old days", when music was purely for fun, for the listener, anyway.  If you're a dyed-in-the-wool improv purist, or a true "jazz-oid", you'll find the music here passť', but if you just need ta' hear some music with jubilance & hook - this is THE DEAL.  Everything is well-scripted, & listeners who want it all to "fit in place" will come to "Bone Daddy's" in droves.  Though this isn't normally our style of music, I still rate it a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for those folks who want some great music for drivin' cross country.  Get more info at www.bonedaddyrocks.com, or purchase the CD at www.musicfist.com/bandpages/b/bonedaddy/I/i.html         Rotcod Zzaj

Ray Marchica - IN THE RING: Ray is a drummer who played the music on this CD as a kind of "contest".... playing against/with guitarist Rodney Jones, bassist Lonnie Plaxico & tenor saxophonist Teodross Avery, they go "nine rounds" (IOW, 9 tracks).   Like any good match, this is for the pleasure of the listener, & there's plenty of good vibe to be gleaned from their improvisations.  For one thing, it has a truly "original" feel, as you might expect!  Marchica's drums clearly show high energy & diverse talent, as do all the other players... there's plenty of styles evident... stone-funky, jubilant jazz & fantastic fusion.  From th' phunk perspective, I'm a big fan of track 3, "Tequila"... heck, it's really my favorite on the album, I'd say.  This is one of the "hippest" jazz CD's we've reviewed yet this year, & gets our MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating.  It just hit the streets/stores on the 7th of June, 2005, so you'd better rush right on out & GRAB this one, 'specially if you're an aspiring jazz drummer.  I like it a lot, & it will stay in the "KEEPER" stack!  To get more information, or purchase the CD, visit the SONS OF SOUND site.     Rotcod Zzaj

John Hollenbeck Large Ensemble - A BLESSING: The word that comes to mind (immediately, on the first 4 bars)  is "EPIC".  Not "big band", at least not in the traditional sense... it IS an 18-piece band, & it has some of the elements of what you might remember as big-band... but John has made this his personal band, & is able to shape it into something that you've never heard before... what he calls an "ensemble of musicians".  That's a very important distinction, too, because (while I love lots of "big-band" music) there's a tendency, in my head at least, to lump it all together.  Hollenbeck's fantastic drumming "leads" this group in many different directions, without ever stepping into "cliche-land" muck at all.  My particular favorite on this album, from the perspectives of "non-cliche", as well as emphasis on the rhythms of life, is cut 4, "Weiji".... it is truly a masterpiece, for the jazz listener as well as those who are "bent" a bit more (like Zappa fans, in Frank's own large ensemble era).  This is an album to GET & to TREASURE... I give it my MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, to be sure!  Get more info, or purchase the album, at www.omnitone.com/ablessing/     Rotcod Zzaj

Ann Sweeten - SAPPHIRE DAYS: If you're inclined to just kick back & take in some beautiful & relaxing keyboard compositions, Ms. Sweeten's CD is one of the best piano albums we've heard (yet) this year.  You can very clearly hear that she's been classically trained, but her playing style is relaxed enough to convey freedom from convention to the listener's ears, & will let you escape into one of those lazy summer afternoons the title conjures up.  You can't call this music "Jazz", nor can you pigeonhole it as "New Age"... because it's purely/simply "Ann".  Hardcore improvised jazz fanatics may not go for this one, unless they're in a particularly nostalgic mood, but I enjoyed Ann's music enough to rate it as HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for any/all listeners who need something that affirms how much beautiful music, & the mem'ries it can bring, can mean to keeping us (all) civilized.  Get more information, or order the CD, from www.annsweeten.com/     Rotcod Zzaj

Bouncing With Bud & Phil - LIVE AT YOSHI'S: We know we're blessed at this magazine... long-term relationships with promo companies always bring us the most exciting music, much of it in "preview" mode... a great & shining example is this CD, featuring sax masters Bud Shank & Phil Woods, to be released on the 19th of July, 2005.  If you're looking for "out" improv, this may not be your cup of tea (tho' there's some pretty high energy, as you might imagine).  We fell in love with Bud's playing when we reviewed an album called "Silver Storm" from him in issue # 44... he just smokes those reeds, & with Phil in the mix, it's twice as good!  Drummer Bill Goodwin, pianist Mike Wofford & bassist Bob Magnusson join in the fray to make for one of the best live sets I've heard in quite some time.  I thought the hottest cut on the album was the last, "Minority"... those saxes are just poppin', & will hold your ears for the entire song!  This is one of the most exciting jazz albums I've heard (yet) in 2005, & gets our MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating!  Get more info, or purchase the album at www.caprirecords.com/catalog/74071.htm or read more about Bud at www.budshankalto.com       Rotcod Zzaj

The Stryker/Slagle Band - LIVE AT THE JAZZ STANDARD: Live jazz recordings, when done well (in the sense of recording techniques) are the best, no doubt... & this CD is a perfect example of that!  Besides Dave Stryker (guitar) & Steve Slagle (soprano saxes), the album features Ed Howard (bass) & Victor Lewis (drums).  The music, nearly all original, was culled from 4 one-hour sets that just kick!  As most of you know by now, I greatly prefer CD releases that feature original music, 'specially when it's new & never heard before.  The funkiest trak (for my ears) was "Boogaloo 7", cut 2... this kinda' beat takes me back to my earliest listens to jazz greats like Eddie Harris & Les McCann... truly great energy & well composed FUN for the listener (& for the players, too, I'd imagine).  On the next round, hope they'll record with a program that includes the titles, times, etc., on the CD itself... it's much easier to acquaint oneself with the tracks if you can look at the CD while it's playing to get that info (without having to consult the CD cover.  That's only a minor complaint, though, as it's the spirit th' music is played in that makes it a genuine HIT for this listener.  I'd say you otta' keep your ears on these guys... they'll be 'round for a while.  I give this a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for jazz aficionados of all flavor.  Get more information, or purchase the CD, at http://davestryker.com/    Rotcod Zzaj

Po'Jazz - TAKIN' IT TO THE HOLLOW:  We were first to turned on to an astonishing poet a month or so ago, named Golda Solomon, & published several of her pieces in our last issue.  Golda is the founder & project director of "Po'Jazz", a "one-of-a-kind monthly jazz and poetry series" at The Cornelia Street Cafe in "The Village" (& if you don't know what "The Village" is, in NYC, you won't understand (at all) what this kind of poetry/jazz is all about.  I've always been a fan (& performer) of poetry that amplified the essence of what "jazz" is really all about...  expressions that come directly from the soul... & "Takin' It To The Hollow" will get you as close as is possible to what that expression feels & sounds like (short of being there in person).  Several poets & players, including Ms. Solomon, of course... her own "Sex Fugue" will "take you to the edge", even tho' it's only :46 seconds long... she's a true master at wrapping you in whatever experience she's painting with her words).  Golda's rendition of Miles' "So What", & the words she enfolds it with, will make you understand more than HOURS of listening to his albums could.  On the other hand, there are several straight-up instrumental jazz performances that are priceless, too!  We're really pleased to have this hour "capture" of NYC "attitude" & "soul" come our way, & are really looking forward to more (& mo' is ON THE WAY, believe me).  This is one of the BEST poetry/jazz CD's I've ever heard, & gets our MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED without a moment's hesitation.  Truly superb for listeners who "grok" the natural marriage that exists between words & jazz.  Get more info, or purchase the CD, at www.homemadmusic.com/~zzaj    Rotcod Zzaj

Thollem/Rivera - EVERYTHING'S GOING EVERYWHERE:  We reviewed the first CD ("I'll Meet You Halfway In The Middle Of It All") by this duo in issue # 65 1/2, sometime last year, I believe it was.  Their latest offering was passed to me (in person) by Thollem during the 11th Annual Olympia Experimental Music Festival... & it's even more exciting than the first, if you can imagine that!  The recording is crisp & clear (it's an EDGETONE release, which means I'd expect nothing less than perfection), & the playing is full of (both) energy & calm.  That's one of the most distinctive aspects of Mcdonas' keyboard work, anyway... he's able to literally suck the listener in to his musical universe... Rick Rivera's drumming & percussion is nothing short of spectacular... almost like these guys were musical twins, somehow... they "read" each other's movements completely!  All the tracks on this outing are completely original, & very unique... but they seem to have more of a "jazz" flavor to them... I wouldn't call them "groove" based (by any stretch of the imagination), but they seem to have "roots" in jazz traditions.  This album is not for listeners who are faint of heart... you will be challenged... those who are not afraid to expose their ears to "the new" will agree when I declare this MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!  To learn more about this wonderful CD, or purchase it,  visit http://www.edgetonerecords.com/catalog/5005.html  You'll be glad you gave your ears such a fine sonic treat.    Rotcod Zzaj

Bradley Leighton - GROOVE YARD: The intros languish gently into some really cool flute by Bradley on this fine lil' jazz CD... it's not due on the street until August 23rd this year - & if you're a dedicated jazz listener, this will be one you'll just have to have! As I commented (issue #70) in a review of his "Just Doin' Our Thang" CD, his flute is "delicate" & "fine." The distinct Latino flavoring on the tracks chosen for this album take that description up a notch, as they've got a bit more "passion" in the architecture (hmmm.... never heard of architecture with passion before, but I don't edit my thoughts very often... improvised writing, ya' know?)... heh! heh! Mike Wofford's flashy piano, Bob Magnusson's solid bass, Duncan Moore's dancing drums, Allan Phillips' poignant percussives & Jaime Valle's great guitar work all contribute to making a musical experience that you'll never forget. This is another KEEPER from Bradley, & it also gets our MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating for any/all who DIG truly spirited (yet gentle) jazz! You owe it to your ears to GET this one! For more info, or to purchase, visit his site, at http://www.fluteguy.com Rotcod Zzaj

Tom Furgas/Russ Stedman - FURGASTEDMAN:  I am always pleased to get truly creative music in for review, & both these gents (whether you know it or not) are true indie masters.... they're part of the group of folks I traded tapes with way back in the '80's, & Tom & Russ are among the best players I've ever heard.  That's not meant in the "gushing" sense of "star-dumb", either... the music they play on this CD is totally unique (tho' I did hear shades of FZ & Beefheart on a coupla' trax - but especially on "Kindergarten Frankenstein, my favorite track on the album), featuring Furgas on "Roland Groovebox" & Stedman on "The Other Stuff".  They maintain a healthy sense of humor about their music (as any true artist should), & the titles will kinda' give you a hint... my favorite titles were "Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Drug Addict", "Dominus Dom Deluise", & "Kindergarten Frankenstein".... what I remember most about my (one) collaboration with Russ is that scorching guitar    lickery he does, & there's no disappointment on that score here.  Tom's genius shows through just as clearly on the Roland, & the duo will get you excited about what really creative musicians can do.  I give this a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, without a moment's hesitation!  GREAT music!  Per an e-mail from Tom, "the Furgastedman disc is $5 pp, but trades are preferred (as ever)!  Contact Russ at russstedman@yahoo.com  or Tom at tfurgas@cisnet.com    Rotcod Zzaj

Noise Poet Nobody - KILLING PLATE:  Since the CD opens with a train on the track, it's difficult to envision the title of the album having relevance... as one becomes captivated by the undercurrents of rhythm & odd tribal sounds, however, it will all come clear - whatever that means.  This fellow is from right here in Washington state, just up the road from me, & as a sound manipulator & sculptor, he's outstanding!  Listeners who want to stay in a "comfort zone" will have difficulty sitting still for this one... it requires attentive listening, and a fondness for aural oddities - which means I enjoyed it thoroughly!  The sonic beeps/pops that course through track 2, for instance, are based in rhythmic swirls that will be defined by the listener's own pulse, so to speak... highly electronic, yet with clear roots in actual analog sounds.  I've been impressed with "NPN's" work for a good while now, & for those listeners who wish to experience their sonic adventures, this gets our MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating... for those who are so steeped in tradition that they can't "bend" their points of reference a bit, it won't be an album of choice.  To learn more, or to purchase the CD, contact via the site at www.entropicadvance.com     Rotcod Zzaj

Daniel Carter/Gregg Keplinger/Reuben Radding - NOT OUT FOR ANYWHERE:  When the music on this CD starts, the impression is that it's "just another improv" thang... at about 1:20, it moves silkily into a straight-ahead riff kinda' thing that will capture the heart of any serious jazz listener.  Carter's sax just wails, with Gregg's drums painting rhythmic swirls & Radding's bass anchoring the trio into one of the freshest jazz experiences I've had in the last 20 years of listening and reviewing music.  It skillfully combines the free spirits of 3 master improvisors into works that any composer would be proud of... & it's very, very accessible for the listener.  That's not to say that your "average Joe" AM listener will gain any great insights from this musical experience, because they'll be unable to concentrate deeply enough to catch the beauty of such flawless performance.  This double CD will fill an entire afternoon or evening for those listeners who can grasp the groove-based pandemonium that ensues.  This one will bore down into your psyche & stir up thoughts & images you'd forgotten... some may be nostalgic, others joyous... but all will be highly charged and aurally satisfying.  This is the BEST jazz I've listened to yet in 2005, & gets the "PICK" of this issue for "best jazz trio", as well as a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating from my ears. If you even think you're a potential jazz fan - GET THIS ONE!  For more information, go to the site at www.soldisk.com/CarterKeplingerRadding.html     Rotcod Zzaj

Kris Tiner/Mike Baggetta - THERE, JUST AS YOU LOOK FOR IT:  The opening moments of this track take me back to some of the earliest recordings I heard my friend Ernesto Diaz-Infante perform prepared guitar works on... Baggetta's style is similar in some ways, but the recording on this effort is superb... Tiner's brass (flugelhorn, trumpet, piccolo trumpet & saxaflugel) provides stark contrasts to the wide-ranging string sequences that Mike plays, but they somehow wind up (very much) "in synch" throughout the album.  This isn't music for "regular" listeners... it requires a degree of concentration and focus that even some players can't muster up... but, if you're looking for something that will challenge your aural horizons, & stretch your mind a bit - GET THIS ONE!  One of my fave tracks is cut 9, "Caffeinated Weasels"... short, but intense (to say the least).  The title track is a killer, too, clearly cut from cloth that hasn't been designed yet... plenty of room for the listener to fill in with colors, swirls & stripes that will make it their dreamcape.  I'm impressed, & any listener who is looking for something "more" will agree with me when I declare it MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED listening.  Get more information at www.pfmentum.com     Rotcod Zzaj

Ellen Band & David Lee Myers - TWO SHIPS:  Well, when these 2 pass in the night, they cause sonic disturbances of Titanic proportions... not the crash & burn style that many improv listeners are so used to these days, more like alien crickets on speed (in some sections).  Highly electronic sculptures of sound that are shaped to draw your ears in & hold on to them for awhile... do not think that once you start listening, you'll be able to just "shut if off"... HIGHLY doubtful.  For that reason, I must advise that you listen to this with headphones on when you have a full 50 minutes to dedicate to the experience.  Ellen seems to be more the "sculptor", with David (who also performs as "Arcane Device") as the electronic "anchorman"... the two weave dreams very well, though, & you'll hear their radars bleeping each other clearly as they pass through the dark seas together.  I hear a lot of SETI sounds in here, too... I've no doubt that if certain aliens hear the signals being generated here, we will be invaded within a 1/2 light year.  The sonics are dense and rich, very enjoyable indeed.  I give this a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for any/all who want more than bubblegum or "smooth" listening.  Get more information at www.pogus.com     Rotcod Zzaj

Homler Liebig Duo - KELPLAND SERENADES:  This is one of the strangest & most exciting CD's I've listened to lately... Anna Homler does vocals (as well as toys & found objects) over strange string sounds & electronics by Steuart Liebig.  We've all heard albums similar to this before (& maybe even played on some), but none of them possess the degree of "other-worldliness" that this one does.  Sorta' like improvisors who "speak in tongues", or something like that.  You must be one of the "initiated" to enjoy this (or be one of the ones who wants to totally escape the "normal", thereby allowing you to become an initiate)... if you think your brain can somehow "convert" this into "normal" sound, think again!  Very carefully crafted pieces here, with neat little nuances in, out, around & through... & the recording quality makes you feel like you're right there (on Venus, or Pluto) watching the performers create these strange serenades.  I give this one a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, especially if your ears are already slightly "bent".  Get more information at www.pfmentum.com     Rotcod Zzaj

Turkey Makes Me Sleepy - SIX WITH PIX:  Mee-ster Goff (as in Charles Rice) & his pals Mike Adams & Eric Matchett have stirred up some stuffing you won't be able to wash away with any Pepto-Bismol, or Tums.  I'm reminded (greatly) of some of the earliest tape works I heard Bret Hart doing in the mid-to-late '80's - in a very favorable way!  The sonics & all the little "nuances" are perfect for gobble-talkers, tho' not for sleeping, I'd say.  My particular favorite is track 3, "I Dropped Science On The Taped Rug".  Strange voices remind you rather quickly that sanity is truly in the mind of the beholder... some very interesting piano strokes (which I'm sure CRG III knew I'd be interested in), also combined with (what sound like) snatches from "The Twilight Zone" shows.  "Encounter At The Water's Edge" is also an earthshaker, full of clanking bells, guitar buzz saws & some great percussion that will (either) tear or mend the fabric of your brain... very interesting.  As a warning, I must tell you that this is odd music (we wouldn't expect anything less from Mee-ster Goff & his associates), but for those listeners unafraid to jump in, it will be a rewarding challenge.  If you're looking for something sonically different, you'll agree when I declare it to be MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.  If ya' ain't schizoid yet - you will be after listening to "Six With Pix".  Contact through CRG's website, at www.geocities.com/padukem     Rotcod Zzaj

Jonathan & Andi Goldman - TANTRA OF SOUND HARMONIZER:  Our friend Mike Milillo (over at MIXPOSURE & Indie Hangout) often tells me that sound can reach out and "take over the world".  That could be in a positive fashion, or in very negative ways... in this instance, it's rendered in a very rewarding way... as you might have imagined, this is a "healing" musical sequence.  I'm reminded very much of some early meditation tapes I listened to when I was in therapy... I think that's why I enjoy the Goldman's efforts so much... they've kind of "amplified" on my early exposures to this type of music, especially with the addition of (what they term as) "synchro-sound" to "align both brainwaves and chakras at the same time".  Whether you understand the terminology/theory or not, you'll have no problem appreciating the beauty they're able to create.  The one thing I wish folks would do when recording these CD's, though, is ensure that the titles are burned right to the media.. if these are home-produced, use NERO, or something like that... if they're pressed somewhere else, make sure the titles are furnished (correctly), so they can appear right on the CD.  That's only a minor criticism, but I'm seeing a LOT of CD's that come in that way.  I rate this as HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, & would advise anyone looking for music that can help heal the soul to seek more information through the site at www.healingsounds.com     Rotcod Zzaj

David Behrman - MY DEAR SIEGFRIED:  This CD is a very novel spoken-word experience... the readings (Thomas Buckner, Eric Barsness & others) are backed by trombone, keyboard/electronics (Behrman) & Shakahuchi (Ralph Samuelson) in improvised glory (tho' they might have been charted, they still came across as freestyle).  Though the subject is protest against a war, the mood it creates would fit as a protest against any war.... very, VERY powerful images created by the music, as well as the spoken-word.  I've listened to a lot of CD's like this over the years, & I can say (without qualification) that this is one of those that will stay IN the stack.  It's a double-CD set, too, so make sure you've got some time mapped out where you won't be disturbed while listening.  This one gets a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED from me, & the "PICK" of this issue for "best spoken-word performance"!  Get more information at www.xirecords.org, or via e-mail to xirecords@compuserve.com    Rotcod Zzaj

Marion Walsh - HOME TO HOME:  Listed as "Americana/Roots", which usually means somethin' like Lester Flatt/Earl Scruggs, Marion's vocals definitely remind me of bluegrass influenced tunes I used to listen to (over a jug of corn likker) down Kentucky way.  That's not necessarily a "bad" thing, at least when the music is performed with the passion Ms. Walsh displays... she has a unique style, & makes it very difficult to pigeonhole her music - which is a good thing!   Those (like me) who are used to music that pretty much categorizes itself from the first 8 bars will find a great amount of joy in the songs Marion crafts, & will know (from those first few bars) that she is a truly independent spirit with a real gift for singing & playing about life & the living!  One of my favorite cuts on the album is track 3, "Just A Heart"; slow & ballad-like, it really highlights her lyrical/performance skills.   I really like this album, even tho' "roots" music isn't always my cup of tea.... I rate it a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for sensitive/aware listeners of all genre persuasions.  Get more information via her site, at www.marionwalsh.com  Rotcod Zzaj

Robin Holcomb/Wayne Horvitz - SOLOS:  Listeners who love solo piano will really want to get hold of this beautiful lil' CD.  Both Robin & Wayne play solos... some ballads, some straight-up jazz (my favorite on the album was cut 3, Wayne Shorter's "Armageddon", performed by Mr. Horvitz, with Robin's original comp, "Up Do", running a close second) & a whole lot of soulful keyboard expression.  This is one of the best-recorded piano CD's I've ever heard, & (believe me) I've heard a lot of them.  I really liked the fact that the titles & performer were clearly labeled ON the CD... this is something that more & more digital artists need to pay attention to, because the listener (really) doesn't want to have to run back & forth between the media and the package to get those little details.  The music on this album all falls in the "keeper" category, & those who thirst for well-played piano solo music will agree with my assessment that this CD is MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.  Get more information through their sites, at www.waynehorvitz.com or www.robinholcomb.com    Rotcod Zzaj
