Ryan Kisor

  • New, new and more new.

    Since launching the new look of jazzleadsheets.com a couple of months ago (June 1), we've been creating and posting both a weekly Recording Anniversary Video and a weekly Birthday video. We hope you've had time to check these out. Each week they can be found by clicking on the dots under the NEW ARRIVALS slide on the HOME page.

    This week's Birthdays include four of our composers who have already been on jazzleadsheets.com for some time (Steve Nelson, Eddie Costa, Carl Perkins and Mal Waldron). This week also celebrates the birthdays of two of our composers who are new to jazzleadsheets.com. You may not be familiar with them: arranger/saxophonist Leon Mitchell and pianist Steve Corn.

    Once you've heard their music, however, you'll see why they're part of our family, and their birthdays give us a double reason to celebrate their music.

    Because we wouldn't have known about Steve Corn and his great music without composer/pianist Steve Allee, we thought this would also be the perfect week to introduce Steve Allee's wonderful music to jazzleadsheets.com. We feel it's also very important to see artists perform, so we're also posting a video of Steve performing his Morning Glory (solo piano - recorded at the Rudy Van Gelder studio). Now that we have the ability to include video on our site, we're also posting a video of Steve Allee telling you more about Steve Corn on Steve's Who May Climb The Mountain page.

    To round out this week's New Arrivals, we're celebrating trumpeter Ryan Kisor's recording anniversary with two more of his compositions.

    STEVE ALLEE: Morning Glory A medium up Latin with a comfortable background for a beautiful melody STEVE CORN: Who May Climb The Mountain An elastic and floating bossa RYAN KISOR: The Dream and Panic Attack A lyrical waltz and a challenging uptempo swing LEON MITCHELL: Late Spring A medium swing from Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers book, with second parts
