Chicago Bass Clarinetist Jason Stein’s Locksmith Isidore Releases Third CD “Three Kinds of Happiness,” on Not Two Records – November 30, 2010

Friday, November 19th, 2010

Featuring Jason Roebke (bass) and Michael Pride (drums)

November 30, 2010 (NYC) – There are many who embrace tradition, and jazz’s recent history is replete with acolytes of a certain era or style. Bass clarinetist Jason Stein is cut from a very different cloth however, and Three Kinds of Happiness, the new album by his trio, Locksmith Isidore, demonstrates just how deeply and completely he has assimilated the past—his own and that of the music–while maintaining his own voice, as a composer and as a performer.

After three years as a quintet with two saxophones up front, Blue Cranes have achieved such a victory. They prove it with Observatories.

Ben Allison — Think Free: In stores and on-line October 13

Friday, August 28th, 2009

Ben Allison

Bassist/composer Ben Allison‘s ninth album, Think Free, is part of a paradigm shift that began with his 2005 Palmetto Records release, Cowboy Justice. “I wanted a band that rocked,” says Allison of his changing sound. “I was moving away from the chamber-jazz elements of Medicine Wheel and Peace Pipe and trying to incorporate other sounds into my music. I continue to try to get to something personal. Cowboy JusticeLittle Things Run the World (Palmetto, 2008), and now Think Free are all one continuous train of thought.”
