New Jazz Releases From Bob Gluck And The Tania Grubbs Quintet

Jazz pianist Bob Gluck is preparing to release his new studio album "Early Morning Star" on June 15th. The album features eleven tracks, beginning with the gentle opening of "A Time Of Singing," which just takes off with the skat-style singing of Andrea Wolper, as she takes you on a journey through the seasons. Next, is the beautifully elegant delivery of the title-song, "Early Morning Star," before the excitingly experimental instrumental piece "Emerge-ency." The sweet piano chords of "For Today," showcase the talents of Bob Gluck, as he portrays emotions through his fingers. The energy picks up with the swift rhythm of "Here Now," before finishing the album with the playful duet between the clarinet and bass on the instrumental "Today, Today," along with the jazzy mash-up of the traditional Jewish song "Tsur Mishelo/Los Bilbilicos."

Early this year, the Tania Grubbs Quintet released a new album titled "Live At Maureen's Jazz Cellar," as a tribute to her dear friend Maureen Budway, in which the Pittburgh establishment was named after. It features a dozen tracks, beginning with the upbeat swing of "A Flower Is A Lovesome Thing," before adding a jazz pulse to Leonard Cohen's "Bird On A Wire." Tania's voice really soars on the Joni Mitchell original "Love," while the Quintet shines on Charlie Parker's "Ornithology." The two come together perfectly on the sweet swaying melody of Neil Young's "Harvest Moon," before closing their new album with lush ballad "Wichita Lineman" and a passionate performance of "Don't Take Your Love From Me."
