September Releases Part 2: Russell Gunn and George Colligan on 9/9

There are a couple of other new releases out today that I didn’t list on my first post. In stores now are the latest recordings from Russell Gunn and George Colligan.

I wasn’t able to quickly find a press release on Russell’s new one but I think the title says it all: Love Stories. There are some samples on Russell’s MySpace page. As I write this, a download was not available at Amazon.com or iTunes. What’s up with that?

George can play many different styles of jazz, from fusion with his Mad Science to acoustic trio. His new Runaway recording has Edward Blanco at AllAboutJazz raving. Check it out now on:
