Jazz.com Reviews: December 9, 2008

With the year coming to a close, the major labels have closed their doors. They’re either having a big party or maybe there’s just a lot of crying going on. The good news is that independent artists keep right on pushing. Just look at what I’ve discovered this week. Big band madness, gorgeous vocals, and some dude who I swear is not related to me. Check ‘em out:

Satoko Fujii Orchestra New York - Summer Suite

Sun Ra - Brainville

Jonatha Brooke - My Flowers Grow Green

Peter Sommer - Round Midnight

Bob McHugh - Jitterbug Waltz

Joani Taylor - Take Five

Patrick Rydman - A Heartache On The Side

Mark Zaleski Band - Care Free
