Jerry Lee  Gugigugigugugugu Take Me 
One Man Show (radio edit) Jazz-Zenész
Love Won´t Wait (feat. Susan Blake on Trombone)
Minden Jó Shut Up! I´m Not In Love With You 
Have You Seen Mr Green? I Say Thank You

All the songs on this album are written by Susan Blake (words & music)! She did lots of touring with Dixieland bands - especially some from Hungary - ever since she left schools. One of these bands is the MISKOLC DIXIELAND BAND, which is the fine backing group on this record. As a composer Susan Blake is quite succesful: in the last years, while doing some more country stuff as a singer, in two following years she won prizes for the best song - composer and lyricist - at the Austrian Country Awards! Here on these recordings she came back to her Dixie roots, but in a delicate mix with Mainstream Jazz, Pop and Country influences. The songs sound positve and light, as if you already know them, the lyrics are with a lot of humour, about love and life. There is also a lot of room for the bands soloists and on the title track Miss Blake takes a solo on the trombone, one of her additionnal instruments.

Turn It On

Audiosamples (click to start & stop):

Luny Tune Senza Fine  Minor Truth
Peace Groovin on Dr. John One for ST
Rumpelstilzchen Balkan Flood

Erwin Schmidt, Martin Fuss, Wolfgang Pointner and Vladimir Kostadinovic are all masters of their respective instruments in any case and these four musicians have more in common than their jazz expertise: what makes The Organ Champs unbeatable as a quartet is their shared grounding in the blues. Plus that a certain funky vibe always underlies their mellow songs and solos. Their debut recording required no major advance coordination, but they simply counted themselves in and turned it on. “Turn it on” is also the name of the album, which kicks off with a vigorous drumroll! At its epicentre is the earthy, vibrant sound of the Hammond organ, a recurrent feature throughout the history of jazz that gives the music an irresistible tingling warmth. The Organ Champs also like to make forays in the direction of soul jazz and hard bop, with classics by the likes of Horace Silver, Lee Morgan or Larry Young. In their own songs, though, they skilfully bring their wide-ranging influences bang up to date.

This is the 5th album of Diknu Schneeberger and marks a new milestone in his career: It's the NEW Diknu Schneeberger Trio with two fellow musicians of his own age. These are actually live recordings, BUT in the Corona crisis, so a stream wthout audience - like a live radio studio sesion! It's a nice combination of clear sound plus fresh and sassy playing/improvising! Almost all of the tracks are compositions by the bandleader himself. Just one Django Reinhardt song made it into the programm: Nuages!

A Song for You   Who Can I Turn To
Send In the Clowns  My One and Only Love
Christmas bonus tracks: The Christmas Song  Let it Snow

Since 1985 Herb Caruso (a.k.a. Hansi Caruso), who has been hyped by critics as Austrian Frank Sinatra, has been active as a jazz singer and performer and has been one of the most interesting crooners in Austria ever since.
Who else could come up with the idea in Vienna to keep the long and venerable tradition of the American Songbook alive?
Who else could develop the over-sized stage personality of a Hansi Caruso for many years with different formations based on the way of life of this American era?
Herb Caruso here presents a mature album with a real sense for the genre of jazzballads and swing. It transports the compositions of his great idols effortlessly into the 21st century without making the impression of being on a nostalgic trip. His simple but convincing maxim: „You can bring what you feel" and „You can sing when you swing“.
For this very imtimate recordings he invited a very delicate rhythm section with pianist, organist and arranger Erwin Schmidt, the great jazz guitarist Christian Havel and drummer Lukas Böck.
The album also has wonderful versions of The Christmas Song and Let it Snow!

01. A Song for You 3:42 * 02. Yesterday I Heard the Rain 3:45 * 03. The Christmas Song 4:48 * 04.Who Can I Turn To 4:15 * 05. A Stranger In Paradise 4:18 * 06. Send in the Clowns 3:18 * 07.
