    George Russell

    The legendary composer/theoretician/visionary profoundly influenced Miles Davis, John Coltrane and virtually every Jazz composer since the late 40s - as well as countless composers in other genres. His 80th Birthday Concert featuring his International Living Time Orchestra (recorded and broadcast by the BBC) is an astonishing 100+ minute performance of some of his most important works.

     

    Fred Ho

    The iconoclastic and internationally renowned composer and saxophonist calls upon Asian, African, Jazz, New Music and spoken word elements to create his highly singular and utterly infectious musical vision, ranging from small ensembles to full evening theatrical pieces. This Special Fred Ho Collection features a wide range of his repertoire, ranging from small ensemble pieces to sprawling large scale works.

     

    Makanda Ken McIntyre

    The brilliant and unique late composer/multi-instrumentalist led ensembles ranging from trios to orchestras, performing works inspired by his African American and West Indian heritage. In The Wind contains his stunning wind quartets - featuring his own virtuosity on 16 reeds, double reeds and flutes in seamless overdubs - spanning the entire emotional spectrum from jubilant swing to exquisite lyricism. Makanda is the only player on the recording!

     

    Ben Schachter

    Ben Schachter is a saxophonist/composer with original and compelling talents, and a highly respected educator who teaches at Temple University. He has recorded and performed worldwide with Jamaaladeen Tacuma, Jack Walrath, Sam Rivers, Uri Caine, Gerald Veasley, and many others. Ben’s approach to music is very organic. He is devoted to the concept of the breath carrying the ‘song’, and allowing the human spirit to soar. This accounts for his big sound which, both powerful and personal, can be heard on his album “Inside Looking Out”.

     

    Jerold Frederic - first recordings ever made public!

    "Jerold Frederic Plays Chopin" are the first ever recordings available from this stunning pianist, now in his 90’s. Jerold Frederic is a direct link to the very earliest traditions of piano playing and strangely, was never recorded for a major label. In his early career, Frederic was fortunate to have contact with Moritz Rosenthal, Ignace Paderewski and Sigismond Stojowski. These remarkable pianists represented a tradition of playing that is all but lost today - a tradition that began with Franz Liszt and Anton Rubenstein. The printed note was used only as an entrance to a language in sound where everything is completely subservient to the nature of the thought. Frederic's playing has provided us with a new link to these great traditions. Listen, and tell us what you think.

     

    Harold Smith

    Harold Smith simply exudes music. When he plays, he is always in conversation with the Great Spirit. Nearly any instrument he picks up becomes a vehicle for his exuberant, heartfelt and spiritual messages. He was trained as a jazz drummer, performing with the legendary Sam Rivers and dozens of others. On his beautiful and mesmerizing album “In The Valley of Sacred Sound”, he is heard brilliantly on various instruments, including the Aborigine wind instrument, the didgeridoo, along with tabla player Badal Roy (Miles Davis) and trombone virtuoso Steve Turre (Rahsaan Roland Kirk and the SNL Band).

     

    The Miles Davis Radio Project

Includes excerpts with nearly 100 interviews with musicians including Dizzy Gillespie, Clark Terry, Andrew White, Joni Mitchell, Roberta Flack, Fela and others. 8 one hour segments.
