New York Is Now! can be described musically as being more modally driven rather than harmonically so. Somewhat out of his element, Coleman rises to the occasion, taking the rest of the band along for the ride.

Goodbye Mr. Coleman… and THANK YOU… Reissue. Features the high-fidelity SHM-CD format (compatible with standard CD player) and the latest 24bit 192kHz remastering. "New York is now" – a pretty bold statement from saxophonist Ornette Coleman, but one that definitely shows his shift in role – from a major force on the LA underground of the early 60s, to an artist who was helping pave the way for a huge wave of growth on the New York downtown scene in years to come! Ornette's at his most late 60s unbridled here – freer than before, and working with a lineup that includes Jimmy Garrison on bass and Elvin Jones on drums – still no piano at all – plus great work from Dewey Redman on tenor, who really burst into new prominence with this album. Ornette plays a bit of violin alongside alto sax – and tracks include "Toy Dance", "Round Trip", "Broad Way Blues", and "We Now Interrupt For A Commercial".

''Dion comes from a time when so-so singers couldn't cut it, they either never got heard or got exposed quick and got out of the way. To have it, you really had to have it, no smoke and mirrors then, not a minute to spare, rough and ready, glorious and grand, grieving with heartache and feeling too much, but still with the always 'better not try it' attitude.'' - –Bob Dylan

New York Is Our Home brings together twenty tracks recorded by Blue Note artists between 1953-58 which helped shape the hard bop template. The compilation includes a handful of acknowledged early classics, but also some primo lesser-known tracks. Hard bop was at the apex of African-American culture from 1955 to around 1965, when rock and soul drove it from the throne. By the time it declined, the music was heavily, often excessively codified. Between 1954-57, however, when most of the tracks on New York Is Our Home were recorded, everything was still to play for. Horace Silver may be the pianist on ten of these tracks, and Art Blakey the drummer on eight, but the only thing that runs through all of them is African-centric energy, as received through blues and gospel. Beyond that, individual expression is key.

The sounds of Brazil are here to stay. ZEBRA Reconds is proud to present one of Rio's treasures: KENIA. The re-release of RIO/NEW YORK is a real celebration. It possesses the feel of hot Carnaval and smooth Samba with a passion for Jazz. Half the songs have been remixed and it sounds better than ever. KENIA, in the tradition of a true "Carioca" expresses herself in song with an emotion known as "Saudade", a love and longing for her native Brazil. When I first heard KENIA the sultriness of her voice was so mesmerizing yet forceful with an intriguing sensuality.

Chet Baker's West Coast cool comes to the Big Apple on Chet Baker in New York. The project would be Baker's first – in a four album deal – with the Big Apple-based Riverside Records. The bicoastal artist incorporates his decidedly undernourished sound and laid-back phrasing into the styling of Al Haig (piano), Johnny Griffin (tenor sax), Paul Chambers (bass), and Philly Joe Jones (drums)…
