Best Of Mapleshade Vol.3 gives exactly what the title promises: fifty-seven minutes of infectious jazz grooves. And the sonics deliver the live, in-your-face excitement of these on-fire musicians. Includes some of our favorite tracks from Clifford Jordan, Larry Willis, Walter Booker, Jimmy Cobb, Andy McKee, Norris Turney, and many more.
“One of Hicks’ finest recordings,” is the Washington Post’s judgment. A jazz piano giant for 40 years, John could break your heart with a ballad, sweep you off your feet with an anthem, or boot you into boogeyin’ with one of his cookers...
Leon, the great baritone who sang with everyone from Pharoah Sanders to the Count Basie Orchestra, live on stage with Baltimore alto sax giant Gary Bartz. Includes exciting versions of Leon's hits “The Sun Song”, “Little Sunflowers,” and “Woman.”
“One of the best acoustic blues albums of the year...” raves Blues Revue. Absolute Sound was unambiguous: “This is as close to live as I’ve heard a recorded trio get...I dare you not to fall in love with this uniquely American music and this firecracker performance.”
Mark’s super-soulful solos during our Ebony Brass date prompted this, our first jazz French horn session. He assembled an inspired quintet: acclaimed pianist Myra Melford; historic NY bassist Fred Hopkins, Warren Smith's masterful percussion; and Steve Berrios’ passionate drumming.
Led by a huge-sounding bass sax with a constantly changing mix of other gorgeously recorded reeds, This ‘N’ That is fifteen songs that span the gambit from Windmill originals to “Lush Life”, “I Am the Walrus”, “Naima” and “Burning Down The House.”
