by BWW News Desk - Nov 28, 2018

Some real-life stories are so remarkable, they take on a cinematic quality. In the case of singer Angela Verbrugge, her personal journey is filled with not one, not two, but three near-death experiences that have shaped her path, and have provided the fuel for her burgeoning music career: “I was in a head-on collision, almost drowned, and then, when I had three kids under five, I got a very serious kind of cancer that had spread. I decided that if I could get through the treatments and survive it, and get my life back together, I would pursue my dream.” (more...)

Labor Records Reissues TRIBUTE TO BIRD AND MONK
by BWW News Desk - Apr 19, 2011

A truly groundbreaking landmark recording, Tribute To Bird and Monk, was widely lauded when it was first released in 1978 - credited as one of the best and most unusual albums of that year by Neil Tesser in a Jazz Magazine article that noted the record's 'tough, bright, innovative resiliency' and earning the coveted five star (highest) rating in a Downbeat review by critic Jerry de Muth (who called the two LP set 'a brilliant mixture of arranged and free jazz') and garnering arranger-producer Heiner Stadler a place in the magazine's Annual Critic's Poll as a Talent Deserving Wider Recognition. More than thirty years later, the album originally released on Tomato Records, is a coveted collectors item whose importance has only been compounded with time, while Stadler's pioneering conception continues to be a talent very much deserving of wider recognition. Now reissued as a compact disc on his own Labor Records imprint, it is likely that Stadler's unique talent will again be heard as deserving increased attention and the music will once more be praised on a level comparable to when it first appeared. The considerable artistic success of Stadler's pioneering project can be credited as much to his visionary assembling of a truly distinctive ensemble to perform his inventive orchestrations, described by de Muth as 'far more than arrangements,' noting that 'recompositions would be a better term.'
