An excellent altoist and soprano-saxophonist, Brandon Fields mostly plays commercial music on this set. On "Studio Cafe Blues," he shows what he can do in a creative jazz context, but otherwise the music is rather mundane, with long melody statements, unimaginative rhythms, and a great deal of safe playing; this version of John Coltrane's "Equinox" is a misfire. Although there are some moments of interest (Fields does attractive tones on his instruments, and the musicianship of the players is high), Brandon Fields has shown elsewhere that he is capable of much better.

A talented altoist influenced by David Sanborn, Brandon Fields has the versatility to be able to play both R&B/crossover and hard bop. Fields grew up in Orange County, CA, and started playing alto when he was ten. A freelance musician since he was a teenager, Fields moved to Los Angeles in 1982 and has worked steadily ever since. He toured with George Benson in 1985, was a regular member of the Rippingtons, has long been a busy session player, and recorded CDs as a leader for Nova and Positive.

Brandon Fields, whose main influence is David Sanborn, has proved many times that he can play creative R&B-influenced jazz. This CD has a few such moments (particularly during a heated "The Face on Mars" and an all-too-brief "You Got It") but Phil Perry's Al Jarreau soundalike pop vocals on "Know How" and "Old San Juan" lower the jazz content of the disappointingly routine (and out-of-print) CD.

The re-master of a 1974 Decca Record recording is excellent in execution and style. Neveille Marriner and St. Martin-in-the-Fields perform in their typical excellent manner.

By 1995, when he finally released his second solo album, Li fe Is Good In My Neighborhood, on Chicago's own record label, the group had not had a new album out in four years. Lamm seemed to have labored long and hard over the release, which was full of well-written and powerfully sung original songs.

Days of FreeMan is a retrospective album that picks up where Divine Travels ended, further exploring the identity of saxophonist James Brandon Lewis. The album is a soundscape inspired by and channeling, but not duplicating, the fragmented sounds of his early childhood days in Buffalo, NY, on Freeman Street, where his ears were washed with early '90s hip-hop. Through sound, each track explores vital themes of earlier times and today - social, political, scientific and religious. On Days of FreeMan, Lewis is joined by electric bass legend Jamaaladeen Tacuma and drummer Rudy Royston. James Brandon Lewis was raised in the church, which formed the core of the saxophonist's spiritual outlook. While many musicians are inspired by the church, Lewis says that it's most important impact was not musical but personal, laying the foundation for his creative approach.

Backed by his rock-solid band, keyboardist Sonny Boy Williams, bassist Robert 'Hi-Hat' Carter and drummer Raul Hernandez. - Gilmore lets the music flow from his heart, displaying stellar musicianship as he rides the grooves. For soul blues lovers and Gilmore's worldwide fan base, BRANDON'S BLUES should hit the sweet spot.

Label: Stretch Records | Rel:2000

Drum master Weckl continues to hawk the muscular brand of fusion that he began dealing with Chick Corea’s Elektric Band over a decade ago. This album seems a catharsis for Weckl, having just come off a divorce and other personal problems. He’s in better form drum-wise than we have heard in some time, and the music on this disc is more engaging than his prior efforts. It would be hard to find a better environment for Weckl’s style than this present quartet. Brandon Fields offers the ideal blend of soulful jazz sax tradition and contemporary flair…
