Okay, I have been a bit lazy with the blog lately but what would you rather have me working on? A regular blog post? Or producing incredible jazz jazz recordings? I can tell you that I have been focussing my efforts on the latter and boy do we have a lot of incredible stuff happening!
First off, The Organik Vibe Trio - Things We Did Last Summer is continuing to get rave reviews worldwide and is enjoying considerable success on the Jazz Week Charts. As of this writing it sits at #22!
We just pre-released Metalwood - Twenty today at www.cellarive.com. For a limited time (one month) you can download the new CD in high resolution format and receive a a bonus track! On July 1st, we'll take it down and it will be available again in August WITHOUT the bonus track. Check out the teaser here!
I really enjoyed working on this record and am super excited about how things turned out! The band will be on tour in September as well including a 3 night run at Frankie's Jazz Club from September 9-11!
Also pre-released today is a record I'm really proud of. Antonio Ciacca Quintet - Volare, The Italian American Songbook. It's a supremely swinging album. Check it out on the site and download it today or order your physical copy!
What else is coming up? Oh my, where to begin! We have my record The Cory Weeds Quintet featuring David Hazeltine - It's Easy To Remember that is being worked on as we speak. We also have an amazing promo video to go along with that record as well as The Emmet Cohen Trio featuring Jimmy Cobb - Masters Legacy Series. We hope this will be one of many CDs by Cohen to come. I'm also heading into the studio in July to record a follow up to This Happy Madness with the Jeff Hamilton Trio. I can't wait to record with these guys again!
I have been listening to many great recordings as well lately by other lables. Some highlights include SPIKE WILNER - Koan on Positone, ONE FOR ALL - The Third Decade, PETER BERNSTEIN - Let Loose and GEORGE COLEMAN - The Master Speaks all on Smoke Sessions Records
Alot of great music out there!
