Next big thing

As far as songs go, few prove as challenging to sing as our national anthem.

It’s a technically demanding tune from first note to last, to be sure, beginning with a low bellow that quickly soars toward star-punching high notes, eventually swelling to a show-stopping crescendo that even the most seasoned performer can have trouble mastering.

Kyle Reid & the Low Swinging Chariots - “When I Was Young”


Jazz

Joshua Boydston
Every artist should be the star of their own creative life, which makes Kyle Reid’s steps out of the shadows of the many ensembles and supporting roles he has played in Oklahoma bands over the years to front and center on stage feel like a just journey.

Brian Haas / Matt Chamberlain — Frames


Jazz

Zach Hale
Here’s an interesting fact about Frames, the new album from Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey mastermind Brian Haas and drummer Matt Chamberlain: If you pre-ordered the release, Haas — a Tulsa native — will record or play live at a show an improvisational piece based on your astrological chart.

Maurice Johnson — Peace, Love & Jazz


Jazz

Louis Fowler
A swanky, ’60s cocktail vibe permeates Oklahoma City jazz guitarist Maurice Johnson’s Peace, Love & Jazz, right from the opening track, “In and Out,” which could have been the theme song to a heist caper starring Steve McQueen and Natalie Wood. It sounds like Burt Bacharach meets George Benson, with smooth melodic grooves hinting at just a little bit of underlying danger.

Michael Summers — More


Jazz

Louis Fowler
This honky cat is really something else! Need proof? Just take a listen to his swingin’ version of the Elton John classic. Deep bass grooves, jaunty piano, smooth trumpet and sexy, crystalline vocals: This is the version to which all others now must live up.

Harry Connick Jr. — In Concert on Broadway

Connick is on fire, and his band plays like maniacs.


Jazz

Stephen Carradini
Do you miss the era where Frank Sinatra was the biggest thing around? Do you pine over the days when the musical was king in pop culture? Are you already a fan of Harry Connick Jr., who apparently never left those days?
