Frank Catalano: Live at the Green Mill with Randy Brecker

Frank Catalano: Live at the Green Mill with Randy Brecker

Frank Catalano, about 23-years-old, plays the tenor sax like no one else and seems to have the energy of a nuclear power plant at his fingertips. This live session, recorded earlier this year, confirms that Catalano has total command of modern straight-ahead jazz as it has been applied to the tenor sax. It is apparent that he has been influenced from most of the hard driving tenors, from Coleman Hawkins and Coltrane to Gato Barbieri and Pharaoh Sanders.

Eric Roth Trio: Program 16

Chicago has a lot of new talents who are working hard to get heard. This is the first release of a trio led by a young and versatile drummer, Eric Roth.

Corky McClerkin: Island of Dreams

Corky McClerkin: Island of Dreams

Corky McClerkin is one of Chicago's great pianists capable of nearly anything in music. He is a tremendous asset to any sized band, any style, electric or acoustic and plays fine solo piano, too.

Eddie Higgins: Speaking of Jobim

Eddie Higgins: Speaking of Jobim

Pianist Eddie Higgins has been in Florida for many years but a great deal of his career was spent in Chicago. He still returns, most every year, to play for those that he touched at London House and numerous other Chicago clubs. This album showcases the compositions of Antonio Carlos Jobim, sans “Ipanema” and the other well-known hits. The point is that although Jobim composed hundreds of tunes, the masses only remember one or two of the hits and most musicians only a few more.

Paul Wertico Trio: Don't Be Scared Anymore

Paul Wertico Trio: Don't Be Scared Anymore

A versatile drummer, Paul Wertico summarizes his various musical experiences on "Don't Be Scared Anymore", a trio date with guitarist John Moulder and bassist Eric Hochberg. Despite the variety of styles and the fact that compositional duties are shared, Mr. Wertico must be credited for making a coherent record with a unique sound. Paying tribute to the power trios of the late sixties-early seventies was surely on Mr. Wertico's mind, but he manages to avoid the pitfalls of the genre: no purposeless solo or battle of the egos.

BRIGHT MOMENTS: The Life and Legacy of Rahsaan Roland Kirk

BRIGHT MOMENTS:
The Life and Legacy of Rahsaan Roland Kirk
by John Kruth
Welcome Rain, 404 pages, $28.95
Reviewed by Don Rose

There was always the initial suspicion that this stocky black dude, Roland Kirk, honking away on three saxophones at once, his sightless eyes covered by oversized black shades, was some kind of carnival act. But anybody with even one open ear was quickly disabused of the idea. The man made music. Serious, creative, innovative music. The difference was he was a whole saxophone section all by himself.

SOUTHPORT Records: The Life and Saga of An Independent Label

SOUTHPORT Records:
The Life and Saga of
An Independent Label
by Bradley Parker-Sparrow

When I was five or six my father gave me a small portable reel-to-reel tape recorder that had a circular clip-on microphone. Sundays were always lazy days and I would often tape the Ed Sullivan show, playing back my early bootleg recordings underneath my sheets, late at night.
...glancing into the future little did I know that there would be digital CDs, and that I would be a composer-engineer-label owner.
