New jazz and blues releases (including a live DVD) available on April 18, 2006.
TIMELESS, LIVE AT THE VELVET LOUNGE
Featuring Hamid Drake on drums/percussion and Harrison Bankhead on bass. Chicago tenor sax legend Fred Anderson has been getting a lot of press recently because of the forthcoming closing of the current location of the internationally renowned Velvet Lounge. This third live Anderson recording follows the very successful On The Run (Delmark 534) and Back At The Velvet Lounge (Delmark 549). This time however the event was videotaped and so we have this excellent album that is also available on DVD in high resolution stereo, DTS and Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound.
BRAD GOODE QUARTET
CD (DE 567)
Jazz trumpeter Brad Goode relocated to Denver two years ago but he maintains his Chicago connection by performing here at least once or twice annually. Brad resided in Chicago and had a weekly gig twelve years running when he cut his first Delmark, Shock Of The New (Delmark 440). Since then he's recorded 3 more CDs, most recently for the European Steeplechase label. The last time he was in Chicago, Brad recorded this new, exciting and sometimes edgy session. Brad's rhythm section features newcomer, Adrean Farrugia on piano, veteran bassist Kelly Sill, and longtime cohort Dana Hall on drums. Contains 9 tracks including 4 Goode original compositions.
MICHAEL COLEMAN & The Delmark All-Stars
BLUES BRUNCH at the MART
CD (DE 785)
Featuring Lurrie Bell, Willie Kent, Bonnie Lee, Little Arthur Duncan, Zora Young, Aaron Moore, Shirley Johnson, Steve Freund, Steve Behr, and Tail Dragger. Chicago music buffs eagerly anticipate the second weekend of June for two reasons. First and foremost, that's when the city stages its annual Chicago Blues Festival, bringing hundreds of thousands of fans to Grant Park on the lakefront for four days of free live blues. And if that weren't enough of an incentive to bring out-of-towners into our city, it's also when the Jazz Record Mart hosts its annual Blues Brunch. Contains 13 tracks, 69 minutes.
Also available Michael Coleman, Do Your Thing! (Delmark 747)
