CD Venus [Ari Brown] [CD] [1 disc]
The Wire (3/99, p.70) - "...solid performance, with standard piano, drums, and bass accompaniment..."CMJ (2/1/99, p.33) - "...a stunning album that is truly magnificent, breathtaking jazz of the highest order. His playing shows vigorous energy and intense concentration..."
CD A Big M: A Tribute to Malachi Favors
The Wire (p.74) - "Bang matches the mood admirably with his tart pitch-blending, while Yosef Ben Israel's strong, clear lines show him a worthy heir to Favors."Down Beat (p.60) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Hypnotic ostinato grooves are El'Zabar's bag, as they were Favors', and this disc has plenty of them."JazzTimes (p.103) - "El'Zabar uses the kalimba to create a hypnotic drone that inspires tenor saxophonist Ari Brown and violinist Billy Bang."
CD Big Cliff
Down Beat (11/95, p.70) - 4 Stars - Very Good - "...El'Zabar's versatile group shapeshifts to accommodate different styles..."JazzTimes (5/96, p.126) - "...The charts are simple, but the feeling, wow--this is some strong/warm expressive/touchy, caressing/feely music, like the joy of laying your head on your lady's stomach and hearing/feeling the baby kick up her heels....Hip. From screams to sighs. Swinging....Love music."Option (9-10/95, p.108) - "...That Ari Brown brings his tenor sax to the edges without crossing the threshold, show just how adventurous (but grounded) these four musicians can be. But it's in the way these guys play off each other that's the most impressive part of this live disc..."Jazziz (12/95, p.98) - "...an inspired set of deep soul and groove expansion. Anchored by El'Zabar's African-rich drumming and Favors' substantial sonority on the upright, the tunes lay into earthy, gorgeous solo flights. The rhythm and lead lines intermesh with a mature, natural fluidity..."
DVD Brown Sugar [DVD] [Wedding Faceplate]
"...[A] surprisingly thoughtful and well-handled romance..." Box Office "...[The film] sustains the charm of an early 60's New York romance..." New York Times "...A sly and sophisticated romantic comedy with a depth of characterization matched by its appreciation of the world of hip-hop..." Los Angeles Times "...Sufficiently smooth, sexy and tuneful....Parker and Kodjoe sizzle..." Variety "...A romantic comedy, yes, but one with characters who think and talk about their goals, and are working hard on decisions....It's observant..."Chicago Sun-Times "...A film whose tough choices and bittersweet ending keep it real..."Entertainment Weekly
