We all know there are rock "concept" albums - otherwise, Roger Dean would be out of work. But is there such a thing as a jazz concept album? Mike's skeptical, but Pat argues all you need is a unified mood and, maybe in the case of Herbie Mann, a tab of acid or two. The Session – COLLUSION; Herbie Mann – STONE FLUTE; Gerald Wilson – ETERNAL EQUINOX; Wynton Marsalis – CITI MOVEMENT; Henry Threadgill – RAG, BUSH AND ALL.
Once again our slate is full of 2019 releases and once again our reaction is mixed, if not to say bastardly. Mike's favorite pianist appears on one, Pat's written up another for allaboutjazz, and one veers between Hollywood Sax Quartet territory and Steve Lacy with the grumps, so the boys are kept on their toes. Oingo Boingo and Frank Zappa appear on pop matters, so there's contemporary relevance for ya. Jonathan Crompton – INTUIT; Spaza – SPAZA; Curtis Nowosad - CURTIS NOWOSAD; Chase Baird - A LIFE BETWEEN.
After discussing their rare "pop" episodes during their allaboutjazz interview, the boys decided, what the heck, let's devote another episode to music with vocals and a relatively expansive user base. All four are jazz adjacent, but none of them are straight jazz - not that there's anything wrong with that. Rickie Lee Jones – PIRATES; Erykah Badu – BADUISM; Yellow House Orchestra – POP; Vivian Sessoms – LIFE II.
