Time to take stock again of new Northwest jazz releases.
First, one that you will probably already have if you know that it's out, and that you may well buy without my encouragement once you learn that it is: Don Lanphere and New Stories' "Home At Last" (Origin). The master saxophonist, a sure-fire pleaser, seasoned over 50 years of topflight playing, performing and recording, is heard here with the Grammy-nominated New Stories trio of Marc Seales, Doug Miller & John Bishop. Say no more. Order it.
