The HBDirect April Jazz Sale Begins!

The April Jazz Sale!
This month at HBDirect we're offering six labels and select new releases at sale prices! We're also introducing a new program, Sound-Savings, which features more than 900 jazz titles priced below $8.00.

Julian Lage
Julian Lage's Debut
"Using four musical settings... Sounding Point is an eclectic album rife with vivid writing, imaginative playing and a seamless blend as challenging as it is listenable... Most artists his age are described in terms of promise; with Sounding Point, Lage bypasses promise and goes straight to delivery." -All About Jazz

New Releases From Emarcy
John Scofield: Piety Street
Clifton Anderson: Decade
E.S.T. (The Esbjorn Svensson Trio): Leucocyte

Marc Copland
Copland: New York Trio Vol 3
"Copland's ties to the tradition are undeniable, but he's rarely swung as hard as he does here... Stewart makes Night Whispers an outstanding and definitive trio disc for Copland. On the merits of this seminal set, it would be almost criminal were this group to be but a one-time affair." -All About Jazz

Recent Releases From Pirouet Records
Nicolas Thys: Virgo
Various Artists: The Best Is Yet To Come
Marc Copeland: Another Place
Tim Hagans: Alone Together

Cassandra Wilson
Cassandra Wilson: Closer to You
"...her hypnotic, sensuous contralto transforms other people's work, often giving it a power and meaning never dreamt of before... Maybe she isn't a "jazz" singer at all, so much as a throwback to the days of the gifted interpreter." -Something Else Reviews

Marsalis, Silver & Green on Blue Note
Wynton Marsalis: He And She
Horace Silver: The Tokyo Blues
Grant Green: Street of Dreams
