LISTEN BEFORE YOU BUY: We’ll sample nineteen recent jazz and blues releases,
with an emphasis on singers, trombones and guitars. First up are three trombonists,
Steve Davis, Nick La Riviere and Wayne Wallace, followed by four singers, Charito, Angela Hagenbach, Rochelle House and Kristina. Then two more trombonists,
Al Henderson and Joe Martin, followed by guitarists Massimo Sammi, Dom Minasi
and Graham Dechter. Four more singers, Pamela Luss, Antoinette Montague,
Kelley Suttenfield and Ben Sidran, and to round out the program, three groups who neither sing, play trombones nor play guitars - the Jeff Hamilton Trio, the
Oslandailey Jazztet and Edward Ratliff. Enjoy!
