Joe Bushkin Quartet w/ Buck Clayton, Milt Hinton & Jo Jones - New On Dot Time Records!



"Live at the Embers 1952"


Dot Time Records announces the third release of its 'Legends' Series, "Live at the Embers 1952" - The Joe Bushkin Quartet featuring Buck Clayton, Milt Hinton and Jo Jones.
One night in early 1952, the violinist David Sarser, who played his prized Stradivarius under Toscanini with the NBC Symphony Orchestra, lugged one of the first Ampex reel-to-reel tape decks into a popular Manhattan nightclub on East 54th street called The Embers. Sarser was an innovative audiophile and his mission was to record some of the excellent music being served up nightly by four of the world's top Jazz musicians at the top of their game.
Joe Bushkin, the leader, was a gifted pianist who emerged during the pioneer days of American Jazz, with a gregarious style containing hints of Art Tatum, glints of Teddy Wilson, and touches of Earl Hines. Joining him were Buck Clayton on trumpet, and "Papa" Jo Jones on drums, legendary veterans of Count Basie's band. Trumpeter Jonah Jones was asked about Bushkin having Buck Clayton playing, he said,  ''Bushkin was the only pianist powerful enough to get a trumpet in the Embers,'  Rounding out the group was a young bassist from Chicago, Milt Hinton, whom Joe had summoned from the road with Cab Calloway's band. Later nicknamed "The Judge" for his impeccable, swinging timekeeping, this engagement was Hinton's first big break that brought him to New York.
When Bushkin's quartet opened at The Embers for a two-week engagement in the Fall of 1951, they caused such a sensation that owner Ralph Watkins held them over for 16 weeks. Patrons would congregate nightly at the El Morocco club across the street to wait for a table at The Embers to open up.
On the heels of his success at The Embers, Bushkin inked a deal with Capitol Records in 1955, featuring his trio in the company of a large orchestra, which reached a wider audience. Bushkin passed away in 2004 at the age of 88, achieving his stated goal of living for as many years as there are keys on the piano.
But back to David Sarser, and his mission. In addition to being a superb violinist, Sarser was an innovative audio engineer and electronics designer who worked with Les Paul in the early days of recording technology, developing the first multi-track recording device, an 8-track tape recorder made by Ampex. He built A&R Recoding Studios in 1960 for producer Phil Ramone. Sadly, his "Zimbalist" Stradivarius violin was stolen in the 1960's and he was so heartbroken, he never played the instrument again. But his zeal for recording led to his capturing the superb sounds that have been thankfully preserved and presented on this album. Live at the Embers 1952 The Joe Bushkin Quartet is scheduled for release on September 15th, 2017.

Tenor Titan Unleashes New Release!
"Three Octaves Above the Sun"

Performed With Archie Shepp To George Clinton!
Expect The Unexpected...


Mark Fox, tenor & soprano saxophone, flute, and kamal ngoni (Malian harp) player, bandleader, composer and recording artist has participated for almost 25 years professionally in the international music and entertainment industry. Blessed at an early age, many legends of music came into his life such as maestros Archie Shepp, Yusef Lateef, Marion Brown, George Garzone, George Clinton and a host of others. These masters became profound teachers, mentors, friends and colleagues, bringing Fox into the deepest levels of the music world. 

During Fox's decade and a half in New York City, he had the honor to perform with such greats as Warren Smith, The Boys Harbor Big Band, George Clinton and the P-Funk All Stars, Archie Shepp, The Violent Femmes, Eugene Chadborne, and numerous other groups and high level artists. Mark's career in music tapered while living in Paris, France, though continuing to play with less frequency, he was blessed to perform with greats such as Steve McCraven, Hervé Samb, Rassul Siddik and others.

In the past years, Mark Fox has returned to his passion for the music with a fervor like never before, and is currently leading his band, The Mark Fox Quartet+. Having just released their first album on Cherry Sound Records, "Three Octaves Above the Sun", with a captivating, sold out performance at Dazzle Jazz in Denver, Fox is currently working towards bringing the band's powerful, transcendent and unique sound to the world stage.

The album, "Three Octaves Above the Sun" is a tour-de-force of mostly original compositions of Mark Fox, and pays homage to his influences and masters, while expressing the international, universal and spiritual experiences that have painted his life. A hybrid of post-bop, progressive, transcendental and African jazz, the music is reminiscent of the late 60s & 70s era, yet freshly modern and universally accessible.
