March In Jazz With New Music From Hailey Brinnel, Malnoia and Dean Tsur

Jazz vocalist/trombonist Hailey Brinnel very recently released her debut album "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles." It features eight tracks that find Hailey's sound rooted in the early days of jazz, while also adding her modern spin to them. She starts off the album with the six-minute, swinging melody of "Orange Colored Sky," which give her band a chance to introduce themselves with solos. Hailey's sweet vocals skat their way through "Give Me The Simple Life" and shine bright on the classic ballad "Stardust," which truly makes her stand above the rest. She wraps up her new album with the swift-moving pace of "Easy To Love," which keeps things quick and exciting, along with the traditional "Show Me The Way To Go Home," which features a New Orleans jazzy style sound.

On the horizon is the sophomore effort from the jazz trio, Malnoia titled "Hello Future." It features eleven tracks, beginning with the gentle, flow of "First Ocean," as each member is allowed to stretch out on this opening introduction. The trio combine a classical element to their jazz approach on their statement of "DemocrApp," while "TimeSaver3050" is a graceful waltz, as you feel the emotion in the presentation of the music. The tempo picks back up with the renewed energy of "Choro Humano," as each instrument continues to push the others to keep up. Malnoia close out their new album with the beautifully elegant notes of "The Last Snowfall" and the picture perfect sounds of "Tears In Rain," as the music puts you in the scene.

At the close of March, we have the arrival of saxophonist Dean Tsur's latest release "Live From Lock Down." The set includes his jazz quartet, The Songbirds and was recorded in November 2020, in front of in-person technicians and an online audience. It was also filmed and will be released on a number of different format on March 26th through Outside In Music. The show contains some of Dean's favorite tracks to perform live, like the energetic opener of Charlie Parker's "Salt Peanuts" and the Gershwin classic "I Loves You Porgy," which finds Dean and pianist Yonatan Riklis performing their own duet. The band add a bit of blues to their sound with the quietness of "Spring Can Really Hang You Up," before swinging once again with the more upbeat tempo of "Fly Me To The Moon." Dean Tsur and The Songbirds finish the album with the swift-moving, eight-minute jam of "Cherokee" and the Thelonious Monk classic "Round Midnight."
