This Is Jazz, Vol. 2 isn't an ideal overview of Chet Baker's seminal Columbia recordings, but it isn't bad, either. Many of the featured 16 songs are among Baker's very best, giving novices a good idea of the sound, style, and depth of his music, even if it doesn't provide an ideal context. Nevertheless, This Is Jazz doesn't intend to provide context, which will undoubtedly frustrate collectors and jazz purists. However, it does succeed in offering an affordable sampler of his classic Columbia recordings for curious listeners – and it succeeds quite well in that regard.

If you are only going to get one Dixie Dregs album, this is the one I would suggest. It is easily the most prog of all of their albums, and, as usual, it has exceptional compositions and musicianship, a pristine example of the fusion sub-genre, combining elements of symphonic rock, bluegrass, jazz, and funk.

The album TONEWHEEL is a collection of observations and experiences of moving to and growing up in the U.S. Each song is based on a story, ranging from escaping the Soviet Union to witnessing the challenges of growing up in an urban neighborhood. The term “tonewheel” refers to the thoughts and emotions that arise from these stories and weave together like a spectrum of color but also have a cause-and-effect functionality like clockwork.

Vocalist Carla Cook follows up her 1999 Grammy-nominated It's All About Love with a sterling mixed bag of songs that range from bossa nova and bop to funk, gospel, and even country. To top off the eclecticism, she employs the trombone trio of Fred Wesley, Craig Harris, and Tyrone Jefferson, resulting in an intoxicating album that's as adventurous as it is accessible. Cook's spry readings of Matthew Gee's "Oh Gee" and the gleaming bossa nova prance of Dori Caymmi's "Like a Lover" show off her optimistic voice and needlepoint articulation and intonation.

Genre: Vocal Jazz | Label: Highnote Records

LaVerne Butler has recorded only sporadically since her 1992 debut, but it isn't due to a lack of talent. Steeped in jazz with an appreciation for R&B, she tackles a mix of Broadway tunes and pop, backed by her frequent collaborator, the gifted pianist Bruce Barth, who also penned the arrangements, along with bassist Ugonna Okegwo and drummer Rudy Royston, with tenor saxophonist Houston Person added on seven tracks. Butler makes it all sound effortless with her expressive alto, gliding through the arrangements as if they've long been part of her repertoire instead of being created just before the sessions.

John Abercrombie's longstanding partnership with Mark Feldman has yielded several albums of exquisite music, and Wait Till You See Her is no different. The mood is naturally restrained, contemplative, and introspective as you would expect, while there's a common thread of healthy respect that keeps the quartet in the softer mezzo piano range. With acoustic bassist Thomas Morgan and the irrepressible drummer Joey Baron, the electric guitarist and violinist weave their way through one standard and seven originals from Abercrombie that comes straight from the heart.

Full Circle marks the Dregs' return to the recording studio after an absence of over a decade. The 1994 release also reunites the band with its original label, Capricorn Records. In fact, the music on Full Circle is pretty typical of the band's earlier Capricorn releases, with a few straight-ahead rockers (including the opener, "Aftershock"), a Texas swing tune ("Goin' to Town"), a semi-classical time signature shifter ("Pompous Signature"), a Baroque-ish guitar piece ("Yeolde"), and plenty of excellent musicianship throughout.

Jazz | Label: Whirlwind Recordings

Following the rhapsodic response to Wojtek Mazolewski’s debut Whirlwind release – a deluxe edition of Polka which, internationally, broke through into dance clubs and rock and indie festivals – the double bassist now focuses attention on the music of his compatriot Krzysztof Komeda (1931–1969), a legend of Polish jazz and an illustrious Hollywood film composer. When Angels Fall again features his inventive quintet of Oskar Török (trumpet, electronics), Marek Pospieszalski (tenor saxophone), Joanna Duda (Wurlitzer, grand piano) and Qba Janicki (drums, percussion) as they explore the prolific output of this enigmatic and tragically departed creative talent.

Térez Montcalm is a Canadian jazz singer and guitarist who broke through to international success in 2007. She is primarily a jazz artist, who has a bit of a Janis Joplin like rock edge to her live performances. In this album she sets aside the guitar and concentrates purely on the slow and varied tempos of these Shirley Horn ballads near and dear to her heart.
