Don Hales has been heralded by many as an incredibly gifted guitarist. On this latest disc, he shares the spotlight with pianist Joe Hunter, bassist Douglas Richeson, drummer Aaron Scott and saxophonist Pete Mills. A review appears in the August 99 issue of Just Jazz Guitar.
The Tom Carroll Trio has been around since the early 80's, and has been exciting listeners around the Central Ohio area. Accompanying Tom on this recording is Hank Marr on B3, Jim Rupp on drums, and Gary Carney on trombone. These recordings were made direct to 2-track in the studio and offer a marvelous addition to the Organ Trio repertoire - Hank can really make a B3 sing, and never as much as on the title song for the disc!

According to Just Jazz Guitar, this is an exceptional recording - if you are a guitar/organ fanatic, you must have this disc!


Here is another recent release from DeWitt/Retzlaff/Smith - the dynamic rhythm section behind the new disc Pathways, by guitarist Stan Smith. (check out the Cojazz page for info on this recording). This collection of tracks shows off the gifted talents of these three fabulous musicians, and highlights the excitement of basic burning trio music at its best!

A wonderfully talented bassist in the Boston area, Greg Loughman also shows off his compositional skills on A Month Of Sundays. His debut album has a Latin flavor, coming from his work as bassist with The Afro-Rican Ensemble. Players featured with Greg include Chad Eby on Tenor, Kris Keith on flutes, Ed Moed on Piano, Tony McClung on Drums, and Eric "The Fish" Paton on Percussion.
Tim Cummiskey, jazz guitar instructor at The Ohio State University, brings together Chris Berg on Bass and Jim Rupp on Drums for his debut album, alone together. This disc features many fine standards, like the title tune, You Stepped Out of a Dream, How Deep Is The Ocean, Emily, while including some swinging with Jeannine, and an incredibly beautiful version of Estate'. Accompanying the trio is special guest Chad Eby on Tenor Saxophone. Hear audio clips at www.tc7string.com.
Tim Cummiskey's second outing featured an organ trio with Hank Marr on B3 and Jim Rupp on drums. This marvelous compilation includes Unit 7, Invitation, How Insensitive, This I Dig of You, Tim's original Fever Dream, and five other great tracks.

The Denison University Faculty Jazz Quintet  finished work on this disc in June of 2000, and it features a number of new original works by saxophonist Pete Mills, pianist Richard Lopez, and guitarist Tom Carroll, along with some standards. Performing with the composers are bassist Doug Richeson and drummer Jeremy Bradstreet.
This is the debut disc by saxophonist Chad Eby and his Trio, featuring bassist Chris Haney and percussionist Dave Weinstock. Joining them on the disc is guitarist Stan Smith, and saxophonists Pete Mills and Eddie Bayard. It features a number of Chad's original compositions, as well as a wonderful version of Donald Byrd's Fancy Free.

The New Remnants Dance Orchestra is a big band that has been together since 1981, and is made up of "remnants" from many of the performing big bands, such as Stan Kenton, Woody Herman, Glenn Miller, The Dorseys and others. The band even worked for many years as The Guy Lombardo Orchestra in the 90's. This is a wonderful New Year's Eve recording from Lima, Ohio, and includes many wonderful tunes, including probably the best recording of Moonlight Serenade outside of the Miller band itself! A great disc for any big band enthusiast.

Bop Du Fway is a bit of an enigma in terms of our "usual" discs...the group, featuring "Daddy-O" on vibes and orations, is a spoof on the jazz poetry bands of the 50's and 60's - the "beat" generation. This group plays to standing-room only shows in Central Ohio during its many performances at the Carnegie Hall of Jazz in Columbus, Dick's Den.

This disc, Dispatch from Outville,  includes many of their favorites, including Tomato Madness, Polka Cats, and the Ganges River Blues Tune, When Your Karma Hits My Dogma. You will laugh till you cry as you snap your fingers and join the hep cats listening to these groovy cuts!
