CD Giveaway! Bela Fleck and Chick Corea's "The Enchantment"

corea_fleck.jpgGood news everyone! Through a deal with a music publishing/marketing company, I have 3 copies of the new Chick Corea / Bela Fleck CD "The Enchantment" ready to giveaway. I've never done a giveaway, but, why don't we do something like this:

Send me an email (peder@classicjazzcorner.com) with:

1) Your name
2) Your email address
3) Your shipping address, and
4) Your favorite thing about the Classic Jazz Corner (e.g., could be an artist, album, my approach to jazz programming, my site layout, etc). I'll also accept constructive (keep it nice!) criticisms too.

If you've never emailed me before, you'll probably get an email back requiring a certain simple response (it's a spam blocker).

You might ask about privacy: Well, under no circumstance will I sell or give your contact information away. I will have to forward the information from the 3 winners to the publisher, but I've been told that the winners won't be put on any email lists unless they want to.

The giveaway will close at 2359 on 04 July 2007. After that time, I'll print off the entries and pick 3 winners out of a hat (more likely, one of my wife's huge Tupperware bowls). I'll contact the winners via email.

Happy sounds, and let the giveaway begin!

New play list uploaded, PDXV CD Review

PDXV A few days ago, I uploaded an entirely new, smokin' set of jazz. From the recent stats, I've noticed that you all are digging the play list as well. Fantastic.

I've got tons of new material from Freddie Hubbard, Horace Parlan (didn't know much about him until recently), Hank Mobley, Keith Jarrett (6 disc At the Blue Note live set- amazing), Herbie Hancock, and Curtis Fuller.

My featured independent artist this month is PDXV, an up and coming jazz quintet from, you guessed it, Portland (PDX is the three digit code for Portland International Airport). They write some original material, which they play live (if you live in Portland or visit PDX, you must see them), but their cover selections are superb - which are nearly all outside the "standard" jazz repertoire. For instance, the opening track on this live album, "Step Right Up to the Bottom", was penned by Harold Land. Another favorite is Kenny Dorham's "Escapade" later on in the disc. Band leader Dick Titterington is confident and very impressive on the trumpet and (is that a flugelhorn I hear??). PDXV: Volume 1 is available online.

New play list uploaded

It's been a while since my last post, but I have been updating the play list here and there throughout the past few months with little changes. You've probably noticed by now that I've just completely changed the play list. I've got new material from Barrie Lee Hall, Jr, who is an uncle to one of my co-residents (thanks the CD Teri!) and a fantastic band leader (Duke Ellington Orchestra) and trumpeter in his own right.

freddie_hubbard_goin_up.jpgThe play list also includes the entire Freddie Hubbard album "Goin' Up", which is a fantastic straight-ahead album, recorded in 1960. I just love Freddie's tone. I've really been listening to a great deal of his work from the early 1970s, including Red Clay, Straight Life, annd First Light.

I love that electric piano! What has happened to me? I'm just crazy for the e-piano these days, especially Bill Evans' work in that decade. Perhaps, as I purchase more 1970s jazz, it will begin appearing on the Classic Jazz Corner play list. Watch out for that in the coming months.

Complete Play List Update

Hello jazz fans:

Sameer Ramchandran Trio
Last week I completely updated the play list (0.5 GB) and set it in motion. I'm featuring several independent artists this month, and you should hear their fantastic music a rather good amount during the next few weeks. The featured artists are: dummer Evan Stone, pianist Roberto Magris, and pianist Sameer Ramchandran Trio (great trio debut!).

And, just for kicks, I've added a track from Madeleine Peyroux's new album "Half the Perfect World," a truly exceptional album. Most of the material on this album doesn't fit my format, but her track "Smile" fits... barely. Enjoy!

Happy sounds,

New Site Layout : Blog Format

After years of procrastinating, I've finally updated the website to allow me to post play list changes and CD reviews much easier. The overall format is about the same, although I had to make many modifications to the guts of the cascading style sheet and master index to allow for Movable Type to do its magic.

Now comes migrating some of the older CD reviews to this new format. This will be moderately painful, but it needs to be done.

Now, on to some more great music.

Happy sounds...

Classic Jazz Corner featured in the Oregonian

Today, Portland's Oregonian newspaper published a story in the Arts and
Entertainment section about Portland internet broadcasters. One of the broadcasters
featured was yours truly. The article will only be online free for 14 days,
so I scanned it. Here's the scanned
PDF copy
of the article. I hope you're all doing well!

Happy New Year

Big Three Trio - We Got RhythymSo, what better way to ring in the new year than with a brand new play list, full of hard bop, classic jazz, and even some funk. Some independent artists I'm featuring this month include Italian pianist Roberto Magris from his album "Check In", and The Big Three Trio's album "We Got Rhythym", and Michael Coppola's "New Impressions." In the interim, I also received gifts from Mr. Jason Rhone (Kenny Dorham's 2-disc set, "Live at Cafe Bohemia") and gifts from my brother Todd, the photgrapher (Herbie Mann and Jackie McLean).

Happy sounds,

Play list update

Frank Strozier

I just uploaded an entirely new, smokin', play list. I hope you all enjoy. I've included some great tracks from recent album acquisitions from Wynton Kelly, Frank Strozier, and Paul Chambers. Have any suggestions or new favorite artists? Let me know, and I'll do my best to get it on the air.

I've been deluged with submissions from independent artists lately, and as soon as I've sorted through them, I'll upload them for your listening pleasure. Meanwhile, I'll try to update my blog.

Happy sounds,

Plenty of new material added to the playlist lately, including tracks from 2003 Juno Award (Canadian eqivalent of the Grammy's) winner Richard Underhill. Other new music added included tracks from Larry Grenadier's trio Fly, Eric Watson, and more from the Bob Wylde Trio. These are in addition to all the other new cuts from more classic artists such as Bill Evans, Miles, Coltrane, etc.

I hope you enjoy, and happy sounds!

Playlist update, new independent artists

It's been a while since I've updated this page, but I've been updating the playlist on a regular basis. I'm uploading an entirely new playlist tonight, in fact. I hope you all enjoy. Thanks for making this fun. My love and knowledge of jazz continues to grow, although I've got a lot to learn, for sure.

This month, I'll be featuring some fantastic tracks from three independent jazz CDs. Warren Greig Trio, The Bob Wylde Trio, and the Partners in Crime CD from Jim Hershman, Bill Cunliffe and Jeff Hamilton entitled "Partners in Crime."

Be sure to listen to them, and buy their music if you like it. It's a lot of fun to support independent local, regional, and national artists.

Playlist viewer - fixed!

I figured out a workaround to my playlist problem. Now, both VIP and non-VIP listeners can view the 3 last played songs on the "Listen" page.

Happy new year!

Playlist update, CD Review - Teddy Edwards "Sunset Eyes"

Well, I hope everyone is having a great holiday season. It's a time of reflection, a time of hope, and a time of reconciliation that we all need to experience more than once a year. My wife, daughter, and I had a blessed time together this Christmas.

Teddy Edwards - Sunset EyesWith that, I have updated the playlist a bit to reflect some new albums, including a smokin' album sent to me from Mr. Shorter: Teddy Edwards "Sunset Eyes".

This album I had never seen or heard before. It was cut in August 1959/1960 in LA and features Teddy on tenor, Billy Higgins on drums, and, none other than Portland's own claim to fame, Leroy Vinegar on bass. I hope you enjoy the tracks, I've included the first five from the album on the current playlist (Tempo De Blues, Vintage '57, I Hear a Rhapsody, Up in Teddy's New Flat, and Sunset Eyes).

Well, I hope you enjoy the new additions. Let me know what you're thinking.

Happy new year!

Playlist update, new independent artists

So, a complete playlist overhaul (except the Katahdin's Edge material - I just love it). Some new artists to check out, including Michael Copolla who plays a custom 9 string guitar. Let me know what you think of it. I really like the material he recorded with singer Rhonda Thomas (pictured right).

Also included are some great tracks off of the Wes Montgomery / Wynton Kelly disc Smokin' at the Half Note that a kind listener (Kevin Shorter from Lawrenceville, GA) sent to me off the amazon.com wishlist. (Thanks Kevin!)

Also, be sure to listen for some great cuts from my new 2-disc Ahmad Jamal album Cross Country Tour (1958-1961) which I'm really digging right now. Also, check out some of the fantastic tracks from some new albums I've recently purchased, trombonist Curtis Fuller's Blues-ette, Lennie Tristano's Intuition, Pepper Adams' Encounter!, Harold Land's West Coast Blues, Jackie McLean's Destination Out!, Brad Mehldau Trio's Art of the Trio, volume 5, and Dexter Gordon's Dexter Calling. Fantastic new albums.

I'm glad I can share them and some Christmas tunes from Vince Guaraldi, Bill Evans, Oscar Peterson, and Dave Brubeck.
