Hi everyone, it’s been awhile since we shared with you a few “nu-voices.” It’s certainly our delight to spring on you from within the essence of jazz in all it’s splendor are three fresh and unique artists. Enjoy!
Soundcheck | II
Second album of the band- Four musically educated individual-each with their own unique style brought together,paying close attention to the quality of the sound, creativeness with good taste, critics’ appreciation, international rewards and respect.
Soundcheck was founded in 2002, but current members have been playing together since the end of 2003. The group is formed by young, but expierienced musicians. The band’s repertoire contains not only the compositions written by the leader – Maciej “Kocin” Kocinski, but also by the remaining members, as well as new arrangments of the jazz standards. – CDBaby.com
Gregory Generet | (re) Generet-ion
“For anyone who is a singer the ultimate goal is to be able to stand before people and be the storyteller of each song,” says Generet “It’s not an easy thing to do.”
Jazz flows through the landmark Townhouse in the Hamilton Heights section of Harlem. Feet tap, bodies sway and taste buds are sated. The world outside that space becomes muted, the worries turned into possibilities. No, this is not a rent party like those of yesteryear, rather it’s just another day at the home of jazz vocalist Gregory Generet whose new CD, (re)generet-ion is finding its way outside of those storied walls and into the hands and ears of jazz enthusiasts everywhere. – CDBaby.com
Mike Janzen Trio | Mombacho
The MIke Janzen Trio is joined by special guests (Phil Dwyer, Kevin Breit) to create an infectious album of funky jazz originals, lush textures and innovative pop covers.
*Mombacho* is Mike’s sophomore jazz album. Following closely on the heels of his award-winning debut “Beginnings”, *Mombacho* suffers from none of the all-to-common second album gremlins. Mike writes and leads his trio (occasionally augmented by saxophonist Phil Dwyer, guitarist Kevin Breit and strings) with clarity and authority. His native humor, intelligence and spirituality are present in abundance on nine original compositions. – CDBaby.com
