Finnish saxophonist Timo Lassy may not be a familiar name to American jazz fans yet, but if there is any justice, that will change with the release of this debut album. Lassy is part of the turn-of-the-millennium group of truly fantastic jazz musicians from Europe in general and Finland in particular, who have embraced both the "mainstream" hard bop and soul-jazz traditions as well as the more sophisticated aspect of club culture (sans hip-hop or house music) and come up with a new palette of colors and textures to draw from.

Lovin Mighty Fire is Howard Williams third Japanese music compilation for the Ace Records house of labels - this time, for BGP International. Assembled in between his job as a record distributor and his monthly Japan Blues show for NTS radio, the first two have taken a look at the late 50s for a blast of Japanese rockabilly (Nippon Rock n Roll CDWIKD 313), then the 60s and 70s for a romp in Japanese surf music (Nippon Guitars CDWIKD 297).

The Microscopic Septet is one of those rare groups that have been able to take a unique and enduring approach to various forms of popular music, be it jazz, blues, R & B, rock, pop, and so on, by balancing respect with irreverence, namely such outfits as Frank Zappa's Mothers of Invention, the New Rhythm and Blues Quintet (NRBQ), the Sun Ra Arkestra, the Jazz Passengers, the Vienna Art Orchestra, and Mostly Other People Do the Killing.

This collection on the U.K.'s Soul Brother imprint is a very compelling look at a big slice of Freddie Hubbard's long career as a leader, and one that gets ignored for the most part. Hubbard recorded over 20 records between Backlash, his Atlantic debut in 1966, and Ride Like the Wind for Elektra in 1982, with lengthy stops at Columbia and CTI (as well some straight hard bop and post-bop outings for labels Fantasy and Pablo). In many cases, some of these original recordings were not only disregarded by more traditional jazzheads, they were regarded with outright hostility. It didn't matter to Hubbard, however, because at the time, these were among his best-selling albums and connected with the public deeply.

Really wonderful work from pianist Bobby Scott – a perfect showcase not just for his young talents as a composer and arranger, but also for a host of key solo performers as well! This full album brings together two previous 10" LP sessions – both of them brilliant, and graced by some of the most modern talents Bethlehem Records had to offer – which makes for extremely fresh sounds from Scott's wonderful music – jazz that's at a level that's really hard to peg – neither west coast cool, nor east coast arranged – but a really special space of its own!

Genre: Acid Jazz / Funk | Label: Narada Jazz | Catalog Number: 0946 3 82164 2

Celebrating a decade of making music, The Best of Down to the Bone collects 11 of the soul-jazz/fusion band's biggest songs – at least one from each of their six albums – into one neatly compiled collection. Released by Narada, who Down to the Bone has been with since 2004's Cellar Funk, this best-of is a superfluous addition to anyone who has most, or many, of the group's records, but for someone who just wants to learn what Down to the Bone is about, this hits the spot.

Wonderfully sweet work from trumpeter Charlie Shavers – a set that has Shavers blowing on ballads over larger orchestrations – in a style that's really our favorite side of his music! Charlie's horn already has a long legacy by the time of this record – a slightly mature style that sounds wonderfully as he drifts magically over string-heavy backings from Sy Oliver – in a mode that's warm and lush, yet also beautifully soulful, and manages to really personalize the familiar tunes in the set. Titles include "Stella By Starlight", "Ill Wind", "Stormy Weather", "Out Of Nowhere", "Stardust", and "I Cover The Waterfront".

Genre: Jazz | Label: Caprice Records

Oddjob, a Sweedish jazz quintet consisting of trumpet, alto saxophone, bass, piano, and drums, in their own words ""plays jazz, jazz with a beat. Music with a strong identity of its own but clearly inspired and rooted in the soul jazz of the 1960s and 70s."" Since 2002, Oddjob has recorded 8 highly varied albums, one of which, a jazz album for children entitled Jazzoo, received a Swedish Grammy and another of which, entitled Clint, features themes from classic western films reworked in a jazz style. In their current release, entitled Folk, Oddjob is inspired by and is improvising over ancient Swedish pastoral Music. Cow herdings and goat callings mixes fantastically well with the contemporary jazz played by this five piece band.

Label: Nagel Heyer Records | Rel: 2002

Sweet, Intelligent tone in the new Lou Donaldson… The work "Boogaloo" makes me think of the Lou Donaldson soul jazz of the 1960s on Blue Note. Marcus Printup resurrects this term for his debut recording for the Nagel Heyer label and gives it a bit of a dusting off and updating. The New Boogaloo is not a blues blowing session in 4/4 meter. It is an intelligently conceived and deftly executed collection of originals with two standards thrown in, performed by the stars of the new generation of jazz. Mr. Printup, a 35-year-old converse, Georgia native was discovered in 1991 by then Wynton Marsalis pianist, Marcus Roberts. Roberts invited Printup to perform on his Blues for a New Millennium recording.
