Live Recordings

Chris Anderson

Chris Anderson - Live At Bradleys
Chris' wonderful trio performed at Bradley's, one of New York's best known jazz spots for pianists since 1969, for one thrilling week in May of 1994. more...
Sunnyland Slim & John Dee Holeman

Sunnyland Slim & John Dee Holeman - Blues Legends Live
Two intimate concerts jam-packed with enthusiastic fans: frontrow seats for two powerful, very different blues legends. more...
Frank Foster

Frank Foster's Loud Minority Band - We Do It Diff'rent
In Frank’s words, “This is something quite different…I’m not trying to revolutionize the big band, I’m just telling it the way I hear it with thirteen horns and a rhythm section.” more...
Celtic Jazz Collective

David O'Rourke and Lewis Nash's Celtic Jazz Collective
They created a historic first and they made fun music: their infectious Afro-Caribbean-Celtic grooves will have you popping your fingers and step-dancing, whether you’re a jazzer or a Gael. more...
The Angels

The Angels - Live And Joyful In Charleston
I cut my eyeteeth on this kind of gospel—the sweet, pure, close harmony of a Southern a capella choir. When I heard about South Carolina’s finest, the Angels, I took a chance and went all the way to Charleston to record them. more...
Live In Harlem

Patience Higgins' Sugar Hill Quartet - Live In Harlem
If you like your jazz uptempo and overflowing with vitality, look no farther. Patience is a cooking, muscular-toned tenorman somewhere between Coleman Hawkins and Sonny Rollins—a musician great enough to have toured with Ellington, David Murray and Stevie Wonder. more...
Clifford Jordan

The Clifford Jordan Big Band - Play What You Feel
Clifford’s big band wasn’t a machine of stunning precision like the Basie Band. It was a warm and swinging group with great jazz soloists, akin to Dizzy’s big band from the late ’40s. more...
Bad Influence

Bad Influence - Live At The Bad Habits Cafe
These guys take a gritty approach to that magic moment when the blues turned into rock ’n‘ roll. Whop Frazier sings Motown-steeped, bluesy vocals on classics from Wilson Pickett, Buddy Guy, Jimmy Reed. more...
Drink Small

Drink Small - Electric Blues Doctoer Live!
Hailing from Bishopville, South Carolina, Drink Small has the biggest, deepest bass voice in the blues. His amazingly expressive sound falls right in between B.B. King and Bo Diddley. But Drink’s got a little something extra. more...
Ted Nash

Ted Nash Quartet - Out Of This World
Fans of Coltrane’s Giant Steps will especially dig Ted’s powerful tenor sound. This burning set of modern jazz is one of my very best live recordings. more...
Clifford Jordan

Clifford Jordan Quartet - Live At Ethell's
Nothing I’ve recorded is closer to my heart than this, my first collaboration with Clifford. We recorded live at a posh jazz club in Baltimore for three great nights. Fresh off the New York jazz circuit, Clifford’s quartet was locked-in, relaxed and happily inspired by a house full of enthusiastic fans. more...
