First Quarter Forecast

It’s looking like an excellent start to 2003 in progressive jazz. Slammin’ saxman Bill Evans lets loose Big Fun in the U.S. on February 4. Look for Christian McBride’s fusion release, Vertical Vision on February 11. Stefon Harris’ ambitious 13-piece suite for 12 musicians, Grand Unification Theory, also hits on February 11. Spyro Gyra returns on February 25 with Original Cinema. Kenny Garrett has a follow-up to his excellent Happy People CD in March. Three key Crusaders reunite for Rural Renewal on March 4. Verve has a new Wayne Shorter release listed for March 25. Charlie Hunter’s latest, Right Now Move also is available on March 25. Ethnomusicology Vol. 3 is due from Russell Gunn this first quarter as well. I’ll post more releases as I learn about them.
