Live From The Jazz Lounge

Program #08 (January 13 at 6:00 p.m.)

Charles Fambrough – Blues At Bradley’s (1993)

Bassist Charles Fambrough, who first gained recognition as a bassist with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, has proven with his releases thus far that he is also a talented composer and bandleader.

Four of the five diverse pieces on this CD are his and Fambrough's octet (which includes altoist Donald Harrison, trombonist Steve Turre and Joe Ford on soprano), does a splendid job of interpreting the often-challenging but swinging repertoire.

Program #06 (December 16 at 6:00 p.m.)

Miles Davis – Live Around The World (1996)

A definitive look at Miles Davis' live show from his last three years. Using funky but unpredictable rhythm sections and leaving space for plenty of solos, Davis created a unique brand of fusion that has yet to be satisfactorily duplicated.

Patti Austin

Live From The Jazz Lounge

Program #04 (November 18 at 6:00 p.m.)

Patti Austin - Live at The Bottom Line (1979)

Patti Austin came closest on this late-'70s live set to transferring onto vinyl the qualities that made her an outstanding vocalist outside of the studio. There's more spontaneity, emotion, and charisma in the vocals on this album than on almost all her other releases combined; perhaps the nightclub setting inspired her, or, more likely, Austin was free to sing without any agendas, marketing strategies, or producers' visions being factored into the process.

George Cables

Live From The Jazz Lounge

Program #03 (November 4 at 6:00 p.m.)

George Cables - Maybeck Recital Hall Series, Vol. 35 (1994)

Locked right into the mainstream, the ever-reliable George Cables gets his shot at a solo recital in Vol. 35 of Concord's voluminous Maybeck series.

From the opening track ("Over the Rainbow") onward, Cables immediately settles into the prevailing Maybeck idiom, sporting a do-everything technique rooted in bop, with frequent Tatum flourishes, Evans-influenced voicings, and standards as the specialty of the house.
