From The Rainbow Arni Egilsson $15.00 From the Rainbow is a 1999 CD with compositions by Arni Egilsson for String Sextet and Quintet. Title: From The Rainbow - $15.00 Cambria Master Recordings ..........CD 1117 The Arnaeus Ensemble 1. "From the Rainbow" for String Ensemble (3 vlns, vla, vc, db) and two childrens’ voices (spoken) Poem by Dorette Egilsson. In memory of children, victims of violence. 2. "Tale Of Yore" In olden style for String Quintet and piano (2 vlns, vla, vc, db and piano) 3. "Sextet Pacifica" Commissioned by the Pacific Serenades Chamber series for String Sextet (2 vln, 2 vla, 2 vc) 4. "Impressions" for String Quintet (2 vln, vla, vc, db) REVIEWS: Bassist, composer and bon vivant Arni Egilsson continues to bestow blessings to the musical community in the form of powerful, interesting, and message laden chamber works. The quintet and three sextets, which make up this project, all have strong programmatic and personal signatures - a kind of "From Ma Vlast" for Mr. Egilsson. Egilsson is completely unencombered by stylistic idioms and moves easily, compositionally, through the last three centuries of European influences. He also has developed a personal language that has assimilated comtemporary music influences, most notably, jazz. The title work From the Rainbow is a tone poem, a lament for the children of the world who suffer from violence. It is based on a poem by Dorette Egilsson, which is recited by a boy and girl several minutes into the twenty-two minute piece. The children’s voices conclude the work, which is very moving. The music ranges from somber to raging in expression, and in some ways, recalls works of this century’s turning point, such as Transfigured Night by Schoenberg. It is virtuosic and features cadenzas and solo writing for several members of the sextet, including the double bass. It is scored for three violins, viola, cello, and bass. Egilsson plays his role in this musical drama with passion and convictions, as do the other members, which include Endre Granat, first violin, Rachel Purkin, second violin, Richard Altenbach, third violin, Roland Kato, viola, and David Speitz, cello. The stirring narration is by Anya Karlin and Alexander Ossi Osvaldsson. Dorette and Arni Egilsson dedicate this work "to the memory of those children that have fallen victim to violence." A Tale of Yore is a decidedly lighter offering. It is a quasi-Baroque romp for string quartet, bass and piano. Janet Lakatos assumes the viola duties and Douglas D?avis plays cello with Chet Swiatkowski who performs the piano part. Sextet Pacifica was commissioned by Pacific Serenades. It is a fifteen-minute, single movement work for pairs of violins, violas and cellos. Isabella Lippi plays the first violin part which features extensive solo material. Roger Wilkie is the second violin. Kato and Connie Kupa are the violists, and Speltz and Paul Cohen are the cellists. Egilsson writes, "Like the region we live in and love, the work is on the positive and bright side without being lighthearted." The CD concludes with an introspective work, Impressions for string quartet and bass. Egilsson wrote this work while pondering his own life, and those questions relating to life’s journey. It contains musical parallels to Egilsson’s own journey. While it traverses the ups and downs, the brooding, as well as the exultant, it remains optimistic: "The dreams and anxieties, the need to break away from the statis quo...only to return to reality with a joke and a whimper." Review by Tom Knific "The works are very beautiful and dramatic, compositionally clear and well constructed, the workmanship is first rate and the playing simply could not be better. I urge others to give this beautiful music a listen!" (Morgunbladid, Iceland) "Features some imaginative, virtuosic playing by the Arnaeus Ensemble, in which first violinist, Endré Granat is outstanding......flexible of personel, the Arnaeus Ensemble aquits itself here splendidly in all its various combinations. The numerous mood changes og Egilsson´s one-movement "Sextet Pacifica" are admirably characterized by a wide range of expression and timbres; and its spirited account of his attractive, accessable "A Tale of Yore" seems just right for this carefree ‘fun piece’ in a popularised Baroque idiom, intended to describe pleasant memories of yesteryear" (Double Bassist)

House of Illusion...Bridge Akiko Pavolka $15.00 Akiko Pavolka’s House Of Illusion plays jazz with a rock attitude and elements of funk, Latin, electronica and Japanese Enka Music thrown into the mix. Their new album, Bridge (NCM East Records, NCM 40116), captures the raw energy and creativity of their live shows. Imagine the soundtrack to the greatest film you’ve never seen that exists only inside our minds. A forlorn clown dances on a Coney Island beach, a nervous ladybug reflects upon the nature of desire, a laughing woman meets her destiny in the darkness of the city. House Of Illusion weaves a rich tapestry of musical textures using all the elements of their collective experience. Voices, strings, woodwinds, keyboards, accordions and electronics swirl over a deep rhythmic foundation of bass and drums, with Akiko’s vocals at the center of it all. Her compositions provide the framework for the band’s explorations. "She is a gifted singer with a natural yet characteristic voice and a talent for writing eccentric and attractive music and lyrics…her interpretation is fresh and full of originality" (Yukinori Omura, Swing Journal). House Of Illusion came into being in 1998 with the release of their self-titled debut recording (NCM 40113). They have headlined twice at the Yokohama Promenade Festival (in 1998 and 2001) and toured Japan, performing in jazz and rock venues in Tokyo, Yokohama, Kyoto and Kobe. They perform regularly in the New York Area and can be seen in venues such as CB’s Gallery, Detour, Cobi’s Place, The Brecht Forum and The Knitting Factory. "Their open-ended compositions, raw improvisational style and unique approach to group interaction draw the listener into a musical labyrinth…not to be missed" (Knitting Factory Notes).

Mostly Transcriptions Vol. 2 Michael Klinghoffer $15.00 This is my third CD, following 19th Century Pop Music and Mostly Transcriptions Vol. 1. As I write the transcriptions, I have my students in mind, hoping they, as well as others, find interest in the music I love. Furthermore, I hope that students and other bass players are encouraged to write their own transcriptions as they have always been a creative tool for performing artists. I personally admire Fritz Kreisler, who was an incredible violinist. Although there is enough violin repertoire, he wrote many transcriptions for the violin and so did Jasha Heifetz and others. Bach also found interest in transcribing works of his own for different combinations as well as works of other composers of his era.

As in my other two CDs, this album also includes an original work composed for me: Intermezzo by the great Israeli composer Tzvi Avni.

Thank you Alex Tamir, Erel Paz, Avi Elbaz and Seigo Matsunaga for making this happen!

Say What ? Arni Egilsson $15.00 Title: Say What? - Wayne and Árni in Graz, Austria ’99 ARNAEUS MUSIC AW101 "My Funny Valentine" Recorded "live"in Queens Hall, Edinburgh, Scotland August 1998. Wayne Darling, Arni Egilsson Double Basses, Brian Kellock, piano, John Rae, Drums. "Bass Strut" "Song for a Fat Lady" "Casa del Alcalde" "Say What" "Humpty Dumpty" All 5 tunes by Árni Egilsson Recorded in St. Bridgitte Church, North Liberty, Iowa, summer 1999 Wayne Darling and Arni Egilsson Double Bass "Song for Albert" "Unfinished Business" for unaccompanied Bass by Wayne Darling Recorded in St. Bridgitte Church, North Liberty, Iowa, summer 1999. Wayne Darling Double Bass "The Wild West" by Wayne Darling for unaccompanied Bass Recorded in Vienna, Austria Wayne Darling, Double Bass. "A Lovesong for You" by Arni Egilsson Recorded "live" at Clapp Recital Hall University of Iowa summer 1999 Wayne Darling and Arni Egilsson Double Basses Bill Mays, piano, Tim Froncek, drums REVIEWS: Capturing the zeitgeist of the ISB biennial gathering, this project was recorded during the Iowa conference in June 1999, and includes a live track from this duo’s recital at the University of Iowa. One track comes from a live recording as part of the International Double Bass Festival, Edinburgh, Scotland. Darling’s solo track The Wild West was recorded in a church, and provides the resonant sound so complimentary to the instruments. It is always great fun to listen to friends make music, and this is certainly the case with Say what!!? The first four selections are playful duets penned by Egilsson. Bass Strut is exactly that. And Song For A Fat Lady is, well, let’s say you can see her coming, and going. Casa Del Alcade is a flamenco inspired duet, while the title track is hip-hop infused with swing and folksy theme. Darling’s two solo settings, Song For Albert and The Wild West, utilize a plethora of contemporary techniques in a musical manner. His Unfinished Business features the bass more conventionally, but uses his own voice to create a novel duet. Pianist Brian Kellock and drummer John Rae join the duo on My Funny Valentine. Egilsson’s arco voice is bluesy, giving perhaps the double bass impression of Joe Williams. The final piece, A Love Song For You is an original by Egilsson, and includes pianist Bill Mays and drummer Tim Fronceck. Again, the souful arco and harmony create a special mood, something along the line of Here’s That Rainy Day. Say What!!? is really an ode to friends, friendship and the music and basses that bind them! Review by Tom Knific "Pure listening pleasure. Whether it is the loose and swinging "Bass Strut", bluesy and dynamic ’Song for a Fat lady’, ’Say What!?’, ’Casa del Alcalde’, or ’Humpty Dumpty’ Wayne Darling, Árni Egilsson and their Double Basses always connect in these small Chamber Music masterpieces." - Thorsten Meyer Reviewed in "Jazz Podium" Stuttgart, Germany, May 2000

Signature Series-Steve Houghton Steve Houghton $15.00 "The initial concept was to bring together different trios, because I think my favorite setting is the Bill Evans-style acoustic piano trio," Houghton explains. "Then the idea was to add people from there." With Steve houghton anchoring every tune from his drum kit, the album includes three basic trios: one featuring guitarist Larry Koonse and bassist Tom Warrington; another with vibist Emil Richards and Warrington; and a third with pianist Billy Childs and bassist Marc johnson. When the pieces called for fleshing out from the front line, saxophonist Rob Lockhart, trumpeter Tim Hagans and trombonist Andy Martin were called in. Consequently, the album flows through a multiplicity of moods and textures while the essential "feel" is eminating from Houghton’s drums.
Signing Geoffrey Keezer $15.00 The Joe Locke/Geoffrey Keezer Group is a perfect match, balancing the wide musical interests of two leaders who are also formidable composers and performers. Joining them are two up-and-coming young artists who’ve been on the national jazz scene for over a decade apiece, drummer Terreon Gully (who made his mark recording with Stefon Harris, Jacky Terrasson, and Lizz Wright) plus bassist Mike Pope (who recorded with Chuck Loeb, Stefan Karlsson, and Bill Bruford, among others). The quartet mostly focuses on originals by the co-leaders, with Keezer sometimes incorporating electric keyboards and Pope alternating between electric and acoustic basses. Keezer’s tense "Darth Alexis" produces plenty of fireworks with explosive solos and his striking blend of acoustic and electric keyboards. The vibraphonist’s refreshing arrangement of John Coltrane’s "Naima" adds an unusual countermelody with the theme stripped down and initially hidden in the background, then spacing it out in an irregular manner. Keezer’s setting of British singer/songwriter Imogen Heap’s "Hide and Seek" is a transcription of her a cappella recording, with his electric keyboards providing a hip accompaniment for Locke’s sparse vibraphone. The pianist takes center stage in his glistening "Terraces," a piece full of surprising twists. While Joe Locke and Geoff Keezer both lead individual groups of their own, the occasional opportunity for them to join forces is guaranteed to produce memorable music. ~ Ken Dryden

Style: Modern Jazz Commanding a soothing, lush voice capable of tenderizing the lyrics of any song, Denise Donatelli does a wonderful job on When Light are Low, a collaboration with friend and musical director Geoffrey Keezer. The album has received two Grammy nominations, one of which is for "Best Vocal Jazz Album," leaving no doubt that this is indeed an exceptional recording. The other Grammy nod is for "Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying A Vocalist," for Keezer’s arrangement of Billie Holiday’s classic, "Don’t Explain." Iin addition to producing and arranging, Keezer also performs on piano, and crafts a variety of instrumental combinations in support of Donatelli, including trumpet , saxophone and rhythm section; a vocal choir; guitar and percussion; solo piano; and string quintet. Fronting a quartet featuring guitarist Peter Sprague, Donatelli kicks the music off with a swinging rendition of "It’s You or No One," spicing it up with some appreciable scatting. On "Don’t Explain," the vocalist shows her softer side, emotionally delivering its lyrics, with Sprague and guest flugelhonist Ingrid Jensen providing splendid accompaniment.

The title track is especially brilliant, surrendering an outstanding sound that features Ron Blake on a series of burnished tenor solos. The strings and background vocals come to the forefront on Sting’s pop song "Big Lie, Small World," while Keezer and Donatelli perform a delicious duet on "Why Did I Choose You," perhaps a reference as to why these two are such a sparkling musical force. "The Telephone Song," sung as a bossa, delivers a nice buzz and features Sprague, and Jon Wikan on pandeiro. Other notable tracks include "Forward, Like So" and Cedar Walton’s "Enchantment (Firm Roots)," wrapping up a special album from a special vocalist.

The Keezer-Donatelli collaboration proves to be a winning combination once again as the Grammy attention about When Lights are Low most certainly affirms. There are no low lights here, as Denise Donatelli’s star continues to rise and, with this recording, shine brightly.
