A Prince protege, Chavez (David Sylvian's ex wife) made news when she claimed she'd written, but received no credit for, Madonna's "Justify My Love" (Chavez was proved in the right). Her style is unusual, consisting of breathy spoken passages over a heavy dance beat. Her self-titled debut album could lead to greater things. ...this product was recorded, cut and mixed by the legendary Michael Koppelman. Ingrid's claim to fame is that she brought that exotic, sultry spoken lyrical feel (see Madonna's Justify My Love and Janet's spoken parts on songs like That's the Way Love Goes and her own tunes in Graffiti Bridge) to female pop music.

The Steeldrivers may play traditional bluegrass, but they do it with a style that's informed by outlaw country and rock & roll attitude. Mike Henderson, who plays mandolin, resophonic guitar, and harmonica and also co-writes the majority of the band's original tunes, was one of the founders of the Dead Reckoning label, an alt-country label that released some of the best non-Nashville country albums of the ‘90s. That maverick approach is evident in the sounds the Steeldrivers generate here. The tempos on Reckless are more varied than those on their self-titled debut, but even the slower tracks pack the big emotional punch that bluegrass fans love, the kind of feeling that used to make country music dangerous......

This recording has it all - a great band, exuberant vocalist and a superb guest artist all performing great tunes arranged in a refreshing and exciting manner. Cole Porter unwittingly provided jazz artists with wonderful material for creative expression in so many forms. His music attracts audiences on multiple levels, and continues to provide musicians and listeners alike with a seemingly infinite number of melodic purposes and possibilities yet to be discovered. In this recording, a talented ensemble pays a fitting tribute to the man and the music. Details

Joe Pass was without peer as a jazz guitarist during the last two decades of his life; this is one of many expected posthumous releases to emerge since his death. Because Pass concentrated primarily on solo and small-group recording sessions, it is a treat to hear him backed by larger ensembles like the NDR Big Band and Radio Philharmonic. The arrangements are respectful of the star and unobtrusive, with show tunes ("On a Clear Day"), standards ("Soft Winds"), and originals like his upbeat "Waltz for Django." The only person who might be dissatisfied with this CD would have been Joe himself, who was extremely well known for criticizing nearly every recording he ever released. ~ Ken Dryden Details

Though much less expansive than Mangione's other Mercury concerts, Land of Make Believe is the most successful of the lot, a winning combination of attractive tunes, big-thinking orchestrations, just enough jazz content, and a genuinely felt sense of idealism. Here there is no dead weight; all of the material is very engaging and the combined forces of Mangione's quartet and the Hamilton (Ontario) Philharmonic are on fire. This would be Mangione's most irresistible attempt at embracing the whole world of music - and for awhile, it was possible to believe that he would become a major unifying figure in American music. Alas, thus far this would be the last full flowering of that promise. ~ Richard S. Ginell Details

All the qualities that have made John Mayer a rising star are on display in this concert package: an interesting voice; tunes that are catchy but still have some depth; an appealingly casual slacker attitude; and enough grit to separate him from the namby-pamby singer-songwriter crowd. Recorded in 2002 in Birmingham, Alabama, the nearly two-hour concert showcases not only Mayer's songs (including some new ones) and versatile three-piece band, but also his surprisingly deft guitar playing (check out his Hendrix-saturated stylings on the unaccompanied "Man on the Side"). There are plenty of extra features as well, including an audio track with Mayer's comments about the songs, photos, and two brief but well-made (especially "Any Given Soundcheck") documentaries. All in all, a worthy addition to the catalog of an artist who keeps getting better.

Perhaps the greatest Baritone sax player in jazz history, Gerry Mulligan is honored on this extraordinary album by a group of prominent musicians who either played alongside the legend, or grew up under the influence of his indelible musical shadow.When former Gerry Mulligan sideman Ted Rosenthal assembled a sextet to record his new arrangements of 11 tunes written by or associated with the late Mulligan, he made a clever and unusual decision: there would be no baritone saxophonist. This makes for a most effective tribute.No player in jazz has been more associated with the baritone than Mulligan, and anyone who attempted to step into his shoes would invariably come up wanting.Highly Recommended.

Why any critic would think that Hank Mobley was at the end of his creative spark in 1963 -- a commonly if stupidly held view among the eggheads who do this for a living -- is ridiculous, as this fine session proves. By 1963, Mobley had undergone a transformation of tone. Replacing the scintillating airiness of his late-'50s sides was a harder, more strident, almost honking one, due in part to the influence of John Coltrane and in part to Mobley's deeper concentration on the expressing blues feeling in his trademark hard bop tunes. ~ AllMusic

One of Jackie McLean's earliest Blue Notes, Swing, Swang, Swingin' parts company with the vast majority of his output for the label by concentrating chiefly on standards (only one of the seven tunes is a McLean original). Perhaps as a result of Blue Note's more prepared, professional approach to recording sessions, McLean sounds invigorated here, catapulting each melody forward before launching into a series of impassioned improvisations.
