  • HOUR ONE
  • Richard Whiteman “Very Well And Good” from Very Well And Good (Cornerstone Records)
  • Richard Whiteman is a multi-instrumentalist based in Toronto, Canada. One of the busiest pianists on the Toronto scene . Richard has recorded ten CDs as a bandleader and has established himself as one of Canada’s finest musicians in a performing role and as a mentor and teacher to younger musicians.
  • After working as a pianist for decades, Whiteman began studying the double bass in 2004, quickly becoming an adept performer. In 2012, he formed his “bass” quartet with Reg Schwager (guitar), Amanda Tosoff (piano) and Morgan Childs (drums) – the band that forms the backbone for his brilliant new album Very Well & Good. The quartet is joined on several tracks by tenor saxophone giants Pat Labarbera and Mike Murley

  • Linley Hamilton has been the foremost Trumpeter in Ireland for the last 20 years.

  • An experimental project creating jazz from classical influences, giving space for improvisation within a contemporary jazz framework
  • Camila Nebbia, Maya Keren & Akiva Jacobs “The Night” from In another night, in another world (ears&eyes)
  • Buenos Aires-based saxist Camila Nebbia invited friend and pianist Maya Keren and her longtime bassist Akiva Jacobs to two weeks worth of exploring, playing and eventually recording in Buenos Aires.
  • To start off the album is a composition by Maya Keren . The Night envelops itself in the sublime dread of En otra noche, en otro mundo, falling deeper into the lining between our physical world and that darker plane we feel is there but cannot touch. Keren composed this piece late one night after spending several hours playing piano in front of a wall made of mirrors. She began to see smoky landscapes past the glass. She kept trying to reach out to them. This piece rests in those hidden places.
  • Ryan McCaffrey “The Jazz Junkie” from Session Tracks (Self Released)
  • From the tracks Ryan submitted to me

  • Camila Nebbia, Maya Keren & Akiva Jacobs “Trastornated” from In another night, in another world (ears&eyes)
  • Maya and Akiva’s Spanish was pretty poor coming to Argentina, so their time there involved lots of confused listening on their parts and some very sweet and patient translation on Camila’s part. Late one tired night, in the heat of their Spanglish stew, Camila coined the word “Trastornated.” Akiva had written a tune on the plane ride from New York to Buenos Aires; three sections ungracefully slapped together. “Trastornated” was the perfect jumbled title for this syntax-less composition.

  • Richard Whiteman “Re-entry” from Very Well And Good (Cornerstone Records)
