Gerald Clayton - 'Tributary Tales'

Brian Kiwanuka
Contributing Writer

After a four year wait, fans will be pleased to hear that Tributary Tales, while surely taking a page out of the same book as its preceding album, A Life Forum, is another fantastic - and different - addition to the Clayton discography. On Tributary Tales the lineup of Clayton's previous record is almost intact featuring all of the previous musicians and vocalists with the exception of Akinmusire and Gretchen Parlato. New additions to the ensemble include Ben Wendel, who plays tenor sax with Stephens only appearing on "Wakeful" on baritone sax, Henry Cole and Gabriel Lugo on percussion and poet Aja Monet, who masterfully accompanies the cinematic deep tone of Hancock Rux's voice on "Lovers Reverie" and "Dimensions: Interwoven".

The KRTU Fall membership drive is upon us once again, which is always exciting for me. I know folks don't care for radio fund drives -- the hosts just taken too much -- but I've always loved the vibe of them and the energy of the week. We're providing a service you can't get many other places, so pledge your support at join.krtu.org to keep jazz going on the air in all its forms.

Keyboardist Eddie Moore has a new single out now entitled “007”. Could this mean there’s a new album on the way? Regardless, hit play and shake three measures of Gordon's, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet over ice, and add a thin slice of lemon peel for what is sure to be a memorable Friday. Cheers!

Mark Guiliana Jazz Quartet - 'Jersey'

People fawn over Mark Guiliana. They should-- he's a spectacular drummer. He has a tremendous energy about him when he plays and he's been a modern living legend to the young folks of jazz coming up in this era who have gone gaga over his playing long before he got the call from the late David Bowie to play on Blackstar. It's only now that even more folks are aware of his greatness. However, this greatness is multi-faceted. Sure, he can be known for his raucousness, but as a bandleader, he's much more composed than one would expect. The signs of this have been clear in his jazz quartet alongside tenor saxophonist Jason Rigby, pianist Fabian Almazan, and bassist Chris Morrissey. The Mark Guiliana Jazz Quartet are tight group and their sophomore release, Jersey, cements this vibe for them.
