Eliane Elias: Made In Brazil (Tue, 31 Mar 2015)
If you've never been to Brazil, consider Eliane Elias as a goodwill ambassador with Made In Brazil. It is a triumphant return for the pianist/vocalist to her native land to record her first album there since relocating to the United States in 1981. There is a delicacy to how Elias chooses and approa...

Backback: III (Tue, 31 Mar 2015)
The initial impression of the jazz/rock trio Backback is that they take their cues form the Boston 90s indie band Morphine because the trio features the baritone saxophone of Marc De Maeseneer in most of their compositions. Indeed, III opens with the blues/funk/rocker "Joe" that riffs off of the dee...

Out of My Dreams, Joanne Tatham - Albums (Tue, 31 Mar 2015)
Peter Erskine’s sparkling drum solo, ushering in the breezy McCoy Tyner-Sammy Cahn confection “You Taught My Heart to Sing,” seems a perfect introduction to vocalist Joanne Tatham. Blessed with impeccable phrasing and a meticulous sense of time, Tatham projects a West Coast effervescence yet also conjures the long shadows of Manhattan. It’s an honest duality. A native New Yorker once set on building a career in musical theater, Tatham instead headed west to marry one of TV’s top comedy writers and adjusted her path, establishing herself among SoCal’s foremost jazz-cabaret draws. For Out of My Dreams , her second album in as many years, she’s surrounded herself with top West Coast talent, including Erskine, pianist Tamir Hendelman, bassist John Clayton, saxophonist Bob Sheppard and guitarist Marcel Camargo, with Hendelman and Eli Brueggemann prominent among the arrangers and Mark Winkler as producer. So stellar an assemblage deserves equally beguiling material, and Tatham doesn’t disappoint. Jobim’s “Vivo Sonhando” is at once dreamy and sad, West Side Story ’s “Cool” feels icily threatening and Dave Frishberg’s “Too Long in L.A.” is, of course, a comic delight. Deeper invention drives “Double Life,” Tatham’s caressing lyric married to Herbie Hancock’s “Tell Me a Bedtime Story”; Rodgers and Hammerstein’s lilting title tune, invigorated by some clever vocalese; and Harry Nilsson’s disconsolate “Without Her,” artfully reimagined atop a soothing Afro-Brazilian beat.

5 Skills You Won’t Learn in School, Skill One: How to Connect Your Ear to Your Instrument
Skill one: how to connect your ear to your instrument You’re a trumpet player. You play the piano or the guitar. Maybe you’ve taken up the saxophone. Out of a dozen different instruments, this is the one that you’ve chosen to amplify your musical voice. You identify with it, you wield it with pride, and you strive to follow in the tradition of the fine players that paved the way before you. You’ve collected etudes, method books, and instructional videos. You have hundreds of recordings by the masters of your instrument and each week you take lessons and faithfully practice. Before you know it this instrument becomes the center of your musical and creative output. Your life as a musician starts when you pick it up and stops when you put it down. But what would happen if you took away that instrument? What if I stormed into your practice room and snatched that instrument out of your hand? Suddenly you’re standing there all alone in an empty room – are you still a musician? Think about it… Right now, as you’re reading this, think of a melody in your mind. Can you create these sounds without your instrument? This probably sounds ridiculous, why would you do that? Well, I used to think the same thing… Not so long ago I was a college music major intent on becoming a great improviser. Through school I had learned all of my scales, I was on top of my music theory, and I dedicated the majority of each day to practicing technique.… Read More Related & Recommended Posts: 3 Simple Steps Toward Playing What You Hear 3 Reasons Why You Should Sing Everyday Connecting Your Ears To Your Instrument The 5 Key Skills You Won’t Learn in School: A Five… How to Completely Learn a Melody in 30 Minutes
