Artist: Anthony Wilson Trio

Label: © Groove Note Records
Release Date: 2001

Composer-arranger-bandleader and guitarist Anthony Wilson, the 32-year old son of big band maestro Gerald Wilson, is one of the most brilliant musicians working in the US jazz scene today. A recipient of the IAJE's Gil Evans Fellowship Award, Wilson's rich, fluid and easy going style, with it's seductive references to Wes Montgomery and Kenny Burrell, is much in evidence on his latest CD, Our Gang from the Groove Note label out of Los Angeles.
Playing with a much pared down structure of guitar trio with organ and drums (his previous recordings have been with much larger outfits) gave Wilson the freedom to focus more on his own inventive and incomparable skills as soloist, and his close rapport with drummer Mark Ferber and organist Joe Bagg, with whom he has been playing with regularly for the last 2-3 years, pays off richly in this session.
Wilson's previous three CDs for the Mama label received a great deal of critical and commercial recognition. The self-titled debut album hit number 1 on the Gavin charts and received a Grammy nomination in the Large Jazz Ensemble category in 1997. His second album Goat Hill Junket also achieved great success both critically and on radio while his third album released in 1999 features talents such as Jeff Clayton, Greg Ellis and Jack Nimitz all performing a suite commissioned by the IAJE. Wilson also received a Downbeat International Critics Poll award for Composer Deserving Wider Recognition in 2000.
Wilson's newest effort is the culmination of all his most recent ideas, in both originals and standards, and this CD includes some stunning performances of standards like 'Chitlins Con Carne' (By Kenny Burrell), 'I Want You (She's So Heavy)' (from Abbey Road), and 'Prelude To A Kiss' (Strayhorn). The album also contains further evidence of Anthony Wilson's skill and talent as a composer as demonstrated by original compositions like 'Our Gang' and 'Britta's Blues.' The sterling back-up by Ferber and Bagg also deserves special mention with organist Bagg in particular exchanging great solos on the Hammond B-3 with Wilson.
Recorded by the A-list team of producer Joe Harley (ECM, Enja) and Mike Ross (engineer) at Cello Studios in Hollywood, this remarkable session will serve not only to cement the much vaunted reputation established with the Mama CDs but will in fact greatly extend Wilson's high profile position as one jazz's finest talents.

Anthony Wilson is not your average guitarist. Signed to the Groove Note label before he became Dianna Krall’s touring/studio guitarist, Anthony’s approach to the guitar as an improvisational instrument is quite extraordinary. Ying Tang, Groove Note’s Director, said the unbelievable cover of the Beatles’ “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” from Our Gang was the cut that blew away Ms. Krall and brought them together. As a jazz guitarist (in his jazz organ trio or his famous Nonet ensemble), Wilson feeds off of the explorative performances of the rest of his band. His first two records (both of which are Guitar, Organ and Drums sessions) on Groove Note (Our Gang and Savivity) are absolutely two of the best sounding titles in our available catalog. In both audiophile sound quality as well as in performance! We cannot recommend these titles enough.
His newest recording, The Power of Nine (also on Groove Note) finds Anthony Wilson going back to composition and playing in a Nonet ensemble. The band is truly incredible and all the music (captured on 30ips analog tape and DSD by veteran audio engineer Joe Harley) is performed with passion and grace. The sound quality of this album is world class in every sense. Many of you should have already seen the May issue of Stereophile, where writer Thomas Conrad captures the emotional power of the sessions with incredible excitement. In my opinion, it’s the best feature story I’ve ever read in Stereophile.
The biggest news of the album was the collaboration of the Nonet with Diana Krall on this album. “Looking Back” was written by Cheryl Ernst and the intimacy of Krall’s voice combined with the arrangement of the tune by the band is the highlight of the album. (See the May 2006 issue of Stereophile for the whole story).
This album will surely Anthony Wilson's reputation and with its program of original tunes and rewarding arrangements, influences ranging from Gil Evans and Charlie Mingus all the way to Weather Report and John Mclaughlin, as well as its dense and highly diverse palette of complex chords, sounds and textures, this release will provide continual listening pleasure for serious jazz fans & audiophiles alike.
The sound is extremely dynamic with tremendous crescendos from the horns which retain a rich and seductive sonority. The album also contains layers of sound as well as individual instruments resolved with air and space. The Diana Krall track will surely become the' audiophile vocal demo of choice in years to come but all the tracks here will put any audiophile system through its paces, testing rhythm, dynamics and tonal balance!
If you are a fan of jazz composition, extremely talented guitar players or unbelievable audiophile grade sound quality, we highly recommend you acquaint yourselves with Anthony Wilson and all of his titles on Groove Note Records!

Aaron Goldberg - The Now (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/88.2kHz

Artist: Aaron Goldberg
Title: The Now
Genre: Jazz, Post-Bop, Modern Creative, Contemporary Jazz, Piano Jazz
Label: © Sunnyside Records
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 88,2kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 53:20
Recorded: January, 2009


Hailed by DownBeat magazine for his "quick-witted harmonic reflexes, fluid command of line and cut-to-the-chase sense of narrative logic," Aaron Goldberg has made his name as one of jazz's most compelling pianists, both as a bandleader and frequent collaborator with Joshua Redman, Wynton Marsalis, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Guillermo Klein and many more.
On his new release The Now, Goldberg reunites with bassist Reuben Rogers and drummer Eric Harland, the virtuoso rhythm team going all the way back to his 1998 debut Turning Point. On their fifth outing together, the trio foreground a central truth about the art of playing jazz: that no two performances will be the same because the music is created, in Goldberg's words, "in the dynamic plane of the present."
