BRAD TURNER QUARTET/Jump Up: There's a whole lot of contemporary swinging jazz pedigrees on board here with chops flowing from Canada down to UT and back to Canada and points beyond. With a set of all originals under Turner's arm for the crew to sink their teeth into, whether you are a deep jazzbo that knows all these cats or an open eared listener ready to be amazed, this bunch takes you around the horn and drops you off in not the condition you were in when you left. Real jazzbos doing it up really fine.

PHILIPPE SAISSE TRIO/Body & Soul Sessions Remastered: The original version of this album didn't come out that long ago and if you were dumb enough to miss it, leap frog over to this remastered set that let's you hear stuff you didn't know was in there---like the trio sounding like the original Ramsey Lewis Trio if they had the chance to kick it out on Steely Dan. A pal of Saisse's wanted to add some extra resolution to the session and all I can say is that it's good to have techy pals like that. The original made an impact--this new version hits even harder. If you missed it the first time around, do yourself a favor.
BRETT SPAULDING & the Psychic Spies/Livin' to Play: The blues rocking Canadian with a accent on the rock side has got the journeyman/bar band thing down cold. Having made solid impressions up north, he knows his way around music to release pent up emotions and leave you feeling lots better when you've fist pumped all the aggression away.
