Ed Palermo's Big Band at the Seaport
2008-06-11 16:00:00
Now that the head is back down to relatively bearable, sitting on the pier and listening to some live jazz from Ed Palermo's Big Band perfoming the music of Frank Zappa, Jeff Beck, Cannonball Adderley, Neil Young, Duke Ellington and more seems like a nice treat. Jazz in the big band style is a site to behold, beyond the free-flowing intamacy you get from a trio or quartet, these larger ensambles - 15+ in this case - come with a unique power and intensity. Highly composed sections run remenicent of classical music yet the improvisational swing of jazz is still present. Tonight's a great chance to catch it sans the $25+ cover charge you'd usually pay. And if you like what you hear, make sure you check out the Mingus Big Band who play Tuesdays at the Iridium. It will blow you away. All Ages. Read More...Digg this | Email to a friend | Reddit

DVD Review: Sharon Shannon And Big Band Live At Dolans
2008-04-07 00:49:00
I can honestly say that I know of no other musician that has made a name for themselves playing the Squeeze box (accordion), but Sharon Shannon certainly has. This without doubt Irish music, but it is Irish with a twist. It moves from classic airs to Jazz with a seamlessness that is uncanny. This particular concert ...
Quincy Jones - Big Band Bossa Nova
2008-01-15 21:28:00
Even when he was a full-time jazz cat, Quincy Jones always had an ear for the pop aesthetic. This 1962 record does contain a good bit of, how you say, queijo in its unsubtle arrangements, but it is for the most part an accessible, entertaining, and bubbly affair. And with musicians of the caliber of Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Paul Gonsalves, Clark Terry, Jim Hall (who can't help but be tasteful), and Phil Woods all contributing ideas, a baseline quality is assured. Most significantly, Jones goes beyond the expected Jobim and Bonfa cuts to fit Lerner & Loewe and even Mingus into bossa nova's bright clothes. It's so reminiscent of the cocktail party music for those old movies from the late 50's and 60's.Bossa Nova was king then, and this is a fabulous feel good nostalgia recording. This CD makes me want to throw a cocktail party! This treatment of bossa nova fits in perfectly with the musical culture of those days gone by. It's a time travel trip to the suburban set and penthouse ...

Private party - "noname" Big Band
2008-01-09 10:39:00
1.1.2008 I went to a private party, to a Slovenian Philharmony, where played a couple of my friends in a "special" Big Band (I didn't play). Rok Kovačič - Fish played percussion, Sebastjan Jermol - Moli played trumpet, Julijan Vidmar - Jule was conductor, Sonja Benčina - em.. Sonja played trombone for a while... It was very nice.

Blasted Mechanism, Terrakota, Tora Tora Big Band - Fusão, Fusão (Sem Conf
2007-05-17 01:05:00
Uns vão mais ao rock e às electrónicas, outros mais ao reggae, outros mais ao jazz, mas estes três grupos portugueses (ou de músicos de variadíssimas nacionalidades radicados em Portugal) têm sempre muitas outras músicas deste mundo como elementos fundamentais da sua música, nela integrados com propriedade e saber. E, diga-se, também por isso são dos melhores grupos musicais que existem no nosso país. Para conferir em disco e, ainda mais, nos fabulosos concertos que todos eles - os Blasted Mechanism, os Terrakota (na foto) e a Tora Tora Big Band - dão.BLASTED MECHANISM«SOUND IN LIGHT»Toolateman/Universal Music PortugalJá não é novidade para ninguém que os Blasted Mechanism são uma das mais amadas e acarinhadas bandas, digamos, rock, em Portugal, donos de um culto e de uma paixão que arrasta atrás de si dezenas de fãs por todo o lado. A sua história, já com cerca de quinze anos, é feita de uma música híbrida, excitante, verdadeira (e verdadeira mesmo quand...
Stan Getz - Big Band Bossa Nova (1962)
2007-05-15 05:31:00
This is one out of a series of albums available at "A Bossa Nova Internacional" section of Caetano's Bossa Nova e Outras Bossas book released by Verve with this cover artwork, all designed by Olga Albizu. Most of these albums were very important on introducing Bossa Nova to American audience and we will start to show by this first one sent by Caetano Rodrigues with Stan Getz on Bossa Nova standards arranged by Gary McFarland.This is Stan Getz - Big Band Bossa Nova (1962), for Verve, with arrangements and conduction by Gary McFarland. This amazing set was recorded only in two days, August 27 and 28, 1962. AMG should make better than zeca on Big Band Bossa Nova review with highlights on Gary McFarland participation, as follows: "Fresh from the sudden success of Jazz Samba and "Desafinado," Stan Getz asked the 28-year-old, strikingly gifted Gary McFarland to arrange a bossa nova album for big band as a follow-up. Getz is always his debonair, wistful, freely-floating self, completely a...

2006-12-18 22:10:01
Let's make a great start today, a special day that will end with an amazing post that is probably one of the most wanted records of a great instrumental trio.This is The Pan America Orchestra - Big Band, Big Voices, Bossa Nova (1963) by Musidisc. Once again, a very hard to find LP that is even unavailable at major auction websites. This is to fulfill a request of a Loronix friend of Portugal, which is since now invited to tell us more about The Pan American Orchestra.Big Band, Big Voices, Bossa Nova, mix orchestra arrangements with Samba percussion with tamborim and pandeiro on top of the rhythm section, enjoyable.

X Factor, 28th October - Big Band Night
2006-10-30 04:57:00
Whoopee!! Big band, big bang! Just how scrum-didily-umptious was tonight’s tantalising TV treat!? After the snooze-fest of last week, I’m so glad the show’s producers passed by Podflower and had the good sense and courtesy to take heed of my advice (hmm, yes course they did Pod). With Rod Stewart out the way, room was made for Tony Bennett and big band night, which proved to be a recipe for some outstanding performances and remarkably good song choices. Hell, even Ray did good!
