This weekend I'm listening to The Chris Greene Quartet. Their latest release "Merge" on On Single Malt Recording is an outstanding blend of Jazz fused with pop & hip-hop influences. The rhythm section, Marc Paiane on double bass, Tyrone Blair on Drums, & Damian Espinosa on piano & keyboards, keeps the the groove solid. Chris Greenes fluid improvisations take the release into the stratosphere. This is one releae that I urge you to add to your collection. Believe me you won't regret the acquistion. It will bring you hours of great listening. http://www.chrisgreenejazz.com/

Doctor of Jazz Pick of the Week.
This week I am most pleased to be listening to the latest release from the Houston Person Quintet, "Mellow." The title of the CD says it all. Other phrases that come to mind include "soulfully vibrant" ... "blues tinged & lyrical." Mellow is a blend of soft & mellow tunes with bright & bouncy interpretations of jazz standards. If you are one who enjoys a rich & full-bodied Tenor Sax sound, you're going to love "Mellow."

Doctor Of Jazz Pick of the Week
This week I'm enjoying the new release by Havana Carbo, Phantoms of Love. Havana was born in Cuba & raised in the United States. As a singer/composer she performs with a quartet affectionately and unofficially known as "MELAO." Phantoms of love is truly a treat. Multilingual HAVANA glides from language to language without a hitch, as she tells each story. That while the band keeps the groove tight & breathes and speaks the same emotional language along with Havana.

I'm listening to Project Trio. You gotta hear Blue Rondo a la Turk, City of Dreams and Visual Machine. A soft but dynamic wall of sound. Greg Patillo-Flute, Eric Stephenson-Cello, Peter Seymour-bass & Mark Gurarie-Vocals. Their new release is due out Tuesday February 2nd 2010. Enjoy! Did I mention that this is a truly fun recording. You'll have a good time just listening, but you might want to get up and do a little dance too! http://www.whatisproject.org/index.html
