Russel Malone - Black Butterfly

Is the blog back? YEAH!

I promise to fix all the broken links and to post tons of stuff more. Also, I am going to start posting some classic goodies as well. If you don't like classic, I also promise that you will start to love in a matter of weeks with us.

OK. Enough talking, let's listen. Russel Malone. This is album is triple hot. One hot because Russel is soooo cute. Oh god, NO. He's just an amazing guitarist that has played with Ray Brown, Lewis Nash, Bobby Hutcherson, Jimmy Smith and many others, and is cranking all up in this album. Second hot because Steve Nelson is on it, incredible as always. Third hot because the songs are fucking awesome: Jingles, Say a Little Prayer for You (!), All Through the Night, Dee's Song and others.

But hey, don't take my word for it. GET IT!

Thanks for posting this Russell Malone album, his second as a leader.

I like it that you say Russell is sooo cute first!

Keep a watch out for his first pianoless trio album out this Fall, featuring Montez Coleman (Roy Hargrove) on drums and David Wong on Bass.

The CD release event is scheduled to be at Jazz at the Bistro in St. Louis, October 20-23, 2010.

This will be Russell's fourth release by his current label, MAXJAZZ.
