Billy Mitchell: Detroit Colossus

Billy Mitchell: Detroit Colossus

It's a disgrace that many of Billy Mitchell's leadership albums aren't available on CD or by download. Mitchell was a tenor saxophonist of extraordinary power and skill, and yet today he's virtually unknown. Many jazz musicians had the misfortune of recording for labels in the 1960s and '70s that were so small that the master tapes ...

Joe Newman: Happy Cats

Joe Newman: Happy Cats

Joe Newman doesn't get nearly enough credit for being a juicy jazz trumpeter. Usually, he's merely thought of as a member of Count Basie's post-1952 orchestra or as a sideman. But from 1954 to 1984, Newman recorded nearly 30 albums as a leader, with several others arriving after his passing in 1992. Many of these albums ...

Renaud Digs Gryce + Jaspar

Yesterday, I posted about a marvelous and rare Jimmy Rowles album called Profile: The Music of Henri Renaud (French Columbia), which was produced by Renaud in 1981. The reaction to my post was so strong, I decided to look way back at Renaud's discography to see how the French pianist's optimistic hard bop was shaped and ...

Jimmy Rowles Digs Henri Renaud

Jimmy Rowles Digs Henri Renaud

Henri Renaud was a Parisian jazz pianist in the 1940s and '50s who never lost his French touch. Outgoing, charming and a delightful composer, he was a natural point person for American musicians on tour in Paris searching for sidemen, venues and recording opportunities.
