First Listen: Wes Montgomery - In The Beginning

In the Beginning features never before heard recordings of Wes Montgomery spanning the years 1949 to 1958, the early years  when the six-string virtuoso was learning his craft in Southern Indiana.

First Listen: Keith Jarrett - Creation

There has been a lot of talk amongst musicians, Toronto fans and of course Jarrett fans about his new album Creation. The idea that one of the improvised tracks recorded at his performance at Roy Thomson Hall during last summer's TD Jazz Festival on June 25th was going to be added to the collection of Jarrett’s wonders, was wonderful!

First Listen: Cory Weeds - Condition Blue: The Music of Jackie McLean

14 years after releasing the first record on the the Cellar Live (Ross Taggert btw) comes the 100th album from the Vancouver based label called Condition Blue: The Music of Jackie McLean from label head Cory Weeds.

First Listen: Dafnis Prieto - Triangles and Circles

His arrival in the U.S. has been compared to that of an asteroid hitting New York. Dafnis Prieto is the Cuban born bandleader/drummer/composer and his new CD is called Triangles and Circles.

First Listen: Pat Martino/Jim Ridl - Nexus

Recovering from a devastating aneurysm, Pat Martino was moved to pick up the guitar again after hearing pianist Jim Ridl, and that deep connection is thrown into high gear on this new recording  Nexus, from HighNote Records.
