Mining what Chip calls "punked-blues" the band is described by Jack Rabid of Big Takover thusly: "the squalling guitars are like Albert King, Eric Clapton and young Jimi Hendrix expansions of Chess blues, with a Jean Genie stomp" The blue clear vinyl L.P. is housed in an old school foldover jacket that has been hand silk screened by the band. It includes a download code and a punky lyric sheet.

Title:
Something Good
Release Date: 9/20/2019
Format: CD
List Price: (A15) $15.98 

(5% DISCOUNT THRU 9-27-19) Vocalist Kelley Johnson's glistening sound stands out for its emphatic clarity and direct delivery. On "Something Good," her 5th recording, Kelley presents songs as soundscapes, from lesser-heard repertoire such as Sondheim's "Anyone Can Whistle," or The Carpenters' "Goodbye to Love," to reimaginings of golden standards, Cole Porter's "You Do Something to Me," or "Unforgettable." With inventive arrangements by Johnson and John Hansen, her pianist of the last two decades, her band of Hansen, bassist Michael Glynn, NY drummer Kendrick Scott and special guest, Jay Thomas, delivers a fresh outlook, adding depth and expansiveness to this already substantial musical collection. "Kelley Johnson pulls the blues out of thin air. The deep feeling with which she interprets guarantees a profound reception. It's genuine. Johnson is a true communicator." - All About Jazz.

Title:
Slow Play
Release Date: 9/20/2019
Format: CD
List Price: (A15) $15.98 

(5% DISCOUNT THRU 9-27-19) For Ben Markley's fourth recording, the fleet pianist/composer teams with New York tenor saxophone great Joel Frahm for a dynamic set of modern jazz originals. Though written specifically with the band of Frahm, drummer Jim White, and bassist Marty Kenny in mind, Markley continually finds inspiration from significant influences in his musical life, most notably Cedar Walton, Chick Corea and Bill Evans. With engaging and elevating support from Kenney and White, Markley and Frahm pop on the boogaloo "'Mon Back," strike a Jazz Messengers-esque pose on the grooving "The Return of Catboy," and strut on the half-time funk of the title tune. "Frahm's playing bubbles over with ear-catching inventiveness and a robust, positive feeling." Ottawa Citizen.

Blueprints - Figure One: Frameworks
Release Date: 9/20/2019
Format: CD
List Price: (A15) $15.98 

(5% DISCOUNT THRU 9-27-19) Spurred by the feelings of thankfulness and appreciation for mentors and the people who surround him, Chicago trumpeter and composer Marcus Rutz compiled a two-volume collection of original music and arrangements filled with intrigue, beauty and excitement. With tributes to his mother, "The Compass," bassist Richard Davis, "The Musicianer," or pianist Ellis Marsalis, "Syndrome," Rutz navigates diverse ensemble and stylistic directions with an array of superb musical partners, including saxophonist Brice Winston, NY bassist Marcos Varela & drummer Xavier Breaker, guitarist Matt Gold and pianist Adrian Ruiz, among others. The title, "Blueprints - Figure 1: Frameworks," provides the metaphor while the music reveals the heart of an artist venerating his influences.

Title:
Live At The Jazz Standard
Release Date: 9/20/2019
Format: CD
List Price: (A15) $15.98 

Colin Stranahan, Glenn Zaleski and Rick Rosato first came together back in 2010 to record as a young, leaderless trio "Anticipation". For most of them, this was their first recording, and following its success, "Limitless" came three years later. These youthful and energetic albums developed an international fan base for the trio, but their skyrocketing careers as sidemen prevented them from reconvening until now, eight years after their debut. Captured live at New York City's Jazz Standard, one of the world's leading jazz clubs, the trio revisits music from their earlier CDs, as well as new compositions. Their palpable natural chemistry, coupled now with a new level of maturity and experience, is captured here on "Live at Jazz Standard", a record that solidifies their place as one of the great jazz trios.
