David Joel's Latest
Sky by the David Joel Quartet is a colorful auditory tapestry revealing the
diverse amalgam of what happens when jazz meets electric elements, fusion,
rock, bossa nova, gospel, and other disparate influences. The disc, released
in March of 2007, features compositions and guitar work by David Joel, Bass
- Paul Gehman, Keyboards - John Stenger, and Drums - Dan Monaghan. A regular
staple of Chrisí Jazz Cafe, the group transverses various musical genres
which they weave into a unique and aesthetic style all their own.

Arggh , Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of rum. This treasure is sure to shiver your timbers !! SeŠn runs his usual tight ship, and in addition to the regular crew hosts guests Bob Mintzer on Tenor, Liberty DiVito on drums and Frank DiBussolo on Guitar.

Hear an example (Free #2) on the JukeBox
This particular cut has a sort of "Sidewinder" groove to it, but the CD has plenty of hard bop, ballad and straight-ahead modern grooves to please any taste.
Eric Mintel Quartet
Check out this 3 CD Compilation of Eric's quartet. This comprises Hopscotch from 2002, Dynamo form 2004, and Four on the Floor from 2005. We can assume they were touring in 2003 <g>.
A nice way to get all three excellent CDs in one slick package...
