John Wright Trio: The Wright Feeling

John Wright Trio: The Wright Feeling

John Wright has been playing piano and setting the standard for trios in Chicago for nearly 50 years. His style is both the majestic and blues-drenched with a big sound that fills a room with sound and fans! There is little doubt that his earlier recordings on Prestige (check out South Side Soul) influenced many Chicago pianists to “cross-over”—merging more blues into standards and jazz—and shape the “Chicago school” piano trio sound.

Jerry Coleman's Nine Burner: Jazz Makes You Happy

Jerry Coleman's Nine Burner: Jazz Makes You Happy

Jerry Coleman approached me at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York sometime in the mid-'80s, told me how much he loved my nonet and politely told me that he had intentions to assemble one in Chicago. Since then, the band played many dates in town and we have all grown. This underscores the beauty of jazz, every musician and ensemble have the capacity to be unique—no matter the similarities!

The Phil Mosberg Quartet: The New Balance

The Phil Mosberg Quartet: The New Balance

This is the second effort by the Phil Mosberg Quartet following and building on the strengths of the promising "Forest Through the Trees." Guitarist Phil Mosberg penned the nine compositions, which, for the most part, rely on simple and catchy lines or grooves. However, solid improvisation and group interaction are what the band leader aims at.

Famoudou Don Moye/Tatsu Aoki: A Symphony Of Cities

amoudou Don Moye/Tatsu Aoki: A Symphony Of Cities

Percussionist Famoudou Don Moye's claim to fame comes from his long tenure with the Art Ensemble of Chicago. Although not a founding member, his contributions grew more substantial over the years as the last AEC performances in Chicago bore witness. Unfortunately, he has rarely been given the opportunity to record under his own name, which makes the release of A Symphony Of Cities all the more welcome.

reviewed by Don Rose

The revolutionary era of modern jazz began during the early years of World War II. A startling, complex new music called bebop heralded the age and remains a central force in jazz today—even though it was followed by a quarter century of innovation and radical change.
