The fifth volume of material taken from the tapes that Benny Goodman willed to Yale's Music Library is, for no particular reason, a double-CD set. Two separate and somewhat forgotten Goodman combos are featured: a fine ten-piece unit from 1959-60 that includes trumpeter Jack Sheldon, trombonist Bill Harris and Flip Phillips on tenor, and an otherwise totally unrecorded sextet from 1963. The latter not only features cornetist Bobby Hackett and the young bassist Steve Swallow but the forgotten Modesto Bresano, who contributes some fine tenor and flute. Benny Goodman is in fine form with both of these unjustly obscure combos.

This lesser-known LP is an easy success. Although singer Helen Merrill usually performs with more modern musicians, she must have been thrilled to have veteran swing pianist leading her backup trio. Merrill takes a chance by performing ten veteran standards, most of which are associated with other singers, but she comes across quite well. Most of the songs are taken as medium- to slow-tempo ballads, with a happy "Pennies From Heaven" being the only moderate cooker. Wilson is joined by either bassist Larry Ridley and drummer Lenny McBrowne or bassist Kunimitsu Inaba and drummer Takeshi Inormata, and he is his typical flawless self, while Merrill rarely strays much from the melody and sometimes sounds surprisingly similar to Susannah McCorkle (who would not emerge for another decade). A rewarding album (its listed recording date is approximate), long overdue to be reissued on CD.

THE YALE ARCHIVES, Volume 4 is part of a 8 volume Benny Goodman Box set entitled SWING, SWING, SWING containing previously unreleased material taken from Benny Goodman's personal collection of master tapes. This collection was bequeathed to The Yale University Music Library by his estate. Recorded between 1957 and 1964. Includes liner notes by Loren Schoenberg. This fourth volume of material culled from the tapes willed by Benny Goodman to The Yale University Music Library contains a variety of big-band performances taken from no less than five different sessions held over an eight-year period. Such musicians as baritonist Pepper Adams, Bob Wilber (on tenor), Zoot Sims and BG's former vocalist Martha Tilton get their spots. While several Eddie Sauter arrangements are performed, one has to also sit through a weak 1964 session that includes a forgettable version of "People." An interesting if somewhat erratic set.

2006: Joe Beck - Get Me
Artist: Joe Beck
Album: Get Me

It would be something of an understatement to say that the late Joe Beck was a fine guitarist. In truth, he was one of the most multifaceted players to wield the instrument during his lifetime. Beck was hailed for his funky fusion work, both as an individual and in combination with saxophonist David Sanborn, he was an ace studio musician, working with everybody from Miles Davis to Paul Simon to Gloria Gaynor, and he was a brilliant and daring interpreter of standards. It's that last aspect of his playing that shines brightly on this posthumously released live date.
If this is truly Beck's final recording, it's a great way to cap a recording career. This album was recorded in 2006, two years before lung cancer took his life, and it's a shame that it took this long for it to reach the marketplace; it's a beauty, and one that almost never came to be. Anna de Leon, the proprietor of Anna's Jazz Island in Berkeley, California, had Beck at her club for two nights in September of 2006. Beck asked her to pick out a rhythm section, which is always a risky proposition, but she obliged. Little did anybody know that the combination of Beck, bassist Peter Barshay, and drummer David Rokeach would turn out to be such a winning combination. After the first night, de Leon realized that this music was too good not to preserve, so she arranged to have night two recorded.
It's really hard to fathom that these three men had no history together prior to those two nights. All parties combine sensitivity and a daredevil attitude to create something special. Hearing the way Beck and Barshay dovetail and overlap on "Stella By Starlight," for example, is hearing, to quote writer Whitney Balliett, "the sound of surprise." Other highlights include a not-too-tender "Tenderly," "You And The Night And The Music," and a "Manha De Carnaval" for the ages.
Beck and company are respectful of the music, but never excessively reverential. These men are willing to go off on tangents a bit, making these oft-performed pieces that much more interesting. Almost every number starts off with a Beck introduction, alone worth the price of admission. What follows—fluid chordal pathways, unexpected harmonics, ripping single note lines, swinging passages, and quiet scenarios—is the real show. Bits of banter are interspersed throughout the album, giving Beck a chance to share recollections of Antonio Carlos Jobim, praise his musical partners of the moment, discuss drinking, and liken the guitar to a six-piece band.
Anna de Leon's instincts about these Beck shows were spot-on; it's a shame that night one never got recorded, but it's a good thing night two was preserved for posterity. Beck may be gone, but he still has much to offer.

A really wonderful take on Porgy & Bess and other Gershwin standards by Pearl Bailey there's just something about her naturally rich, bluesy, husky tone on these tunes that's simply wonderful! The backing is often well measured, but, occasionally a bigger sound and chorus vocals kick in. For the most part Pearl owns this stuff, giving warmth and resonance lost on more showbizzy takes on the style and compositions. Titles include "I Got Plenty Of Nothin". "I Got Rhythm", "Summertime", "Lady Be Good", "A Foggy Day", "They Can't Take That Away From Me", "Bess You Is My Woman", "It Ain't Necessarily So", "Clap Yo Hands" and more. 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

THE YALE ARCHIVES, Volume 3 is part of a 8 volume Benny Goodman box set entitled SWING, SWING, SWING containing previously unreleased material taken from Benny Goodman's personal collection of master tapes. This collection was bequeathed to the the Yale Music Library by his Estate. Recorded live in Europe in May 1958. Includes liner notes by Loren Schoenberg. The third volume in this important series taken from tapes willed by Benny Goodman to the Yale Music Library focuses on the big band he took to Europe in 1958, a tour that culminated in a week at the Brussels World Fair in Belgium. The orchestra was filled with both young names like Zoot Sims and pianist Roland Hanna and veterans such as trombonist Vernon Brown and trumpeter Taft Jordan. With the great Jimmy Rushing and Ethel Ennis contributing vocals and the ensemble playing a variety of mostly new charts, Benny Goodman had the right to feel inspired. His playing of this "modern swing" is typically brilliant; collectors will want this entire series.

An unusual package of Quincy Jones albums featuring variations on two American records, presented here in offbeat German versions of the 60s! First up is Songs For Pussycats, kind of a mix of Quincy Jones' Pussycat album for Mercury with some tracks from other records too all done in that wicked mix of jazz, soundtrack, and popular themes that Quincy virtually helped invent back in the 60s! The album's got plenty of great groovers that take a popular tune and kind of turn it on its ear takes on tracks like "What's New Pussycat", "Take Five", "Mack The Knife", "Sermonette", "Mr Lucky", and "Cast Your Fate To The Wind" all of which are souped-up by Quincy, and done in a rhythmic style that takes them past familiar versions you might know. Quincy In Rio is a set that seems to be the famous Big Band Bossa Nova album at the start, but which also features tracks from other 60s albums too showing a whole new fresh side to Quincy's genius in a jazz bossa mode! Arrangements are very lively, with lots of great percussion underneath the soaring big band charts and titles include "Bossa Nova USA", "Desafinado", "Jive Samba", "Baia", "The Gentle Rain", "Non-Stop To Brazil", "Samba De Una Nota So", and "I Love You & Don't Forget It". 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

THE YALE ARCHIVES, VOLUME 2 is part of an 8 volume Benny Goodman box set entitled SWING, SWING, SWING containing previously unreleased material taken from Benny Goodman's personal collection of master tapes. This collection was bequeathed to the Yale University Music Library by his estate. Recorded live at Basin Street, New York, New York on March 26, 1955. The second CD to be compiled from the valuable tapes that Benny Goodman willed to Yale features one of his strongest groups from the '50s, a septet with trumpeter Ruby Braff, tenorman Paul Quinichette and pianist Teddy Wilson. Recorded at the same period as a Book-of-the-Month collection but not duplicating any of the performances, Benny Goodman is heard in top form, clearly inspired by his younger colleagues. Many of the songs are fairly typical of his veteran repertoire but they sound fresh and different in this setting, making this one of the stronger entries in this valuable series.

Format: FLAC, LP- Rip
Released: 1972
Size: 213MB
Time: 34:48

Here we have another great LP from the guitarist Melvin Sparks. Akilah! is one of his best from Prestige's classic early 70s! It is his third LP and recorded at Rudy van Gelders Studio. Sparks is a genius guitarist, with a great talent. He played with Lou Donaldson and Jack McDuff during the late 60s, but by the 70's, he was making his own way as one of the hottest funk guitarists in jazz. The group presented is an excellent one; and features Idris Muhammad on drums, Virgil Jones on trumpet, Frank Wess on tenor, Sonny Fortune on alto and Leon Spencer on organ. Akilah is an album that features more musicians than the usual soul jazz quintet format. Included on the album are guests Ernie Royal on Trumpet, Dave Hubbard on tenor and flute, Hubert Laws on flute, and George Coleman on tenor. Melvin's guitar work is proficient and rewarding. All compositions are by Melvin Sparks except Love The Life You Live [Kool & The Gang] and The Image Of Love [Leon Spencer]. Orchestrations are arranged by Billy Ver Plank on two tracks. Some highlights include "Love The Life You Live", "Akilah", and "All Wrapped Up". Enjoy!

This is a superb cd, with songs of nostalgia. Most are sung by the added "Swing Sisters" who sound close to the Andrews Sisters group. The cd moves along quickly and there are no real "dog" songs on this excellent production. My special favorites: When The Midnight Choo Choo Leaves For Alabam', Heebie Jeebies & When I Take My Sugar To Tea. Try this, you won't be disappointed!It will leave you wanting more of this great group.

The remarkable pianist Dorothy Donegan, who has been overlooked by many jazz fans and critics for decades, is heard in a typically exciting and occasionally riotous live session recorded on the SS Norway. Followed by bassist Jon Burr (who has to work hard to keep up with Donegan's many spontaneous changes of direction) and drummer Ray Mosca, Donegan performs a varied set that includes a few eccentric medleys. Interestingly, though, Times jazz scribe Ben Ratliff quoted his noted jazz predecessor, John S. Wilson's coverage of a Town Hall appearance in 1971 citing that '"Ms. Donegan showed a technical virtuosity that could be compared only to that of Art Tatum and a swinging drive that might be equaled by Mary Lou Williams." Oddly omitted was the Wilson quote that Donegan carried ever closest to her heart, ". . . She is potentially the greatest jazz pianist playing today." A reflection on this comment comes into focus with Chip Deffaa recalling in his obit, "She was probably the only jazz artist who, in the 1990's, could somehow satisfy the very different audiences of the Village Vanguard (the high temple of jazz purism) and the Tavern on the Green (the glitzy tourist nightspot) - both of which she loved."

REPOST with a new link from Mr.1197sc


In his will, Benny Goodman gave to Yale not only all of his band arrangements (over 1, 500) but 400 ten-inch master tapes of unreleased studio and concert recordings. Some of the more rewarding sessions have now been issued by Music Masters and this particular box set includes the first five volumes (and a 40-page booklet), six CDs in all (since Volume 5 had two CDs by itself) which are also available separately. The music dates from 1955-84 (the second half of Benny Goodman's career) and is taken from quite a few sessions, including a full CD of material by his excellent septet of 1955 (featuring trumpeter Ruby Braff and Paul Quinichette on tenor), big-band performances from 1958 with several vocals by Jimmy Rushing and many selections from a 1959 engagement with a nonet featuring trumpeter Jack Sheldon, trombonist Bill Harris and tenorman Flip Phillips. Although no longer a pacesetter, Benny Goodman remained one of the jazz world's most brilliant performers, making this set well worth acquiring.

A fantastic LP of beautiful modal tracks, played by one of the most underrated reed players ever, during the most fruitful time of his career. At this point, Amy's moved away from his bluesy Texas roots, and has discovered a freer Coltrane-esque sound that works beautifully with his spiritual, strident compositions. Although the record was pushed by Verve with the funkier track "Mustang" (also recorded by Donald Byrd), the record really sounds more like a Nathan Davis record, with a mix of tenor and soprano sax that is extremely spiritual. Tracks include "Mustang" (2 versions), "Shaker Heights", "Enojo", and "Old Devil Moon". Dusty Groove, Inc.

The Texas Tenor tears it up on this release for Verve from 1966. It's a fantastic LP of beautiful modal tracks, played by one of the most underrated reed players ever, during the most fruitful time of his career. At this point, Amy's moved away from his bluesy Texas roots, and discovered a freer Coltrane-esque sound that works beautifully with his compositions. Although the record was pushed by Verve with the funkier track "Mustang" -also recorded by Donald Byrd- the record really sounds more like a Nathan Davis record, with a mix of tenor and soprano sax that is extremely spiritual. This has never made it to CD or a vinyl re-issue -surprising given the popularity of the very funky title track and the fact it's on Verve.
Orgyinrhythm


He might have been known as a Texas tenorman but Amy plays more soprano sax here (probably due to the Coltrane influence of the era). The band is mostly of unknowns (local Texas players?) except for pianist Kenny Barron but create quite an energetic stir often with a Latin tinge. Verve needs to reissue this! It's not easy to find but keep your eyes open in those dusty record bins. RateYourMusic

This out-of-print LP looks more promising in the discographies than it is in reality. Vibraphonist Lionel Hampton liked the sound of trumpeter Charlie Teagarden's quintet (which also included trombonist Bill Harris) so he enlisted their services for a live album. Unfortunately some of the tunes (particularly three forgettable originals by Alan Copeland and Hal Dickinson) have early-'60s poppish trappings in the arrangements and the remakes of such standards as "Memories of You," "I Can't Get Started" and "How High the Moon" do not reach the heights of Hampton's earlier versions. There are some good moments from Hamp and Teagarden and if found at a budget price, this album is worth picking up, but nothing essential or explosive occurs from this matchup. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

Exellent studio recording-recommended!

This session for the French Black & Blue label (which was released domestically on an LP by Classic Jazz) features an all-star swing sextet comprised of trumpeter Wallace Davenport, trombonist Vic Dickenson, tenor saxpohonist Buddy Tate, pianist Claude Hopkins, bassist Arvell Shaw and drummer Cozy Cole. They perform swing and Dixieland standards along with a feature for Cole and Shaw on the more recent "Eva." Other highlights include "I Never Knew I Could Love Anybody," "Linger Awhile" and "Farewell Blues." Nothing too surprising occurs but these highly expressive players come up with consistently colorful ideas that should please mainstream fans.

Probably the best-ever album by this obscure bluesy singer from Chicago! Jimmy Giuffre handled the arrangements, and the record has a bit more polish than some of her other albums. The tracks feature some very nice jazzy arrangements with Jim Hall on guitar, Jimmy Jones on piano, and Harry Edison on trumpet. Lurlean's voice is deep and rich, with a sound that's a mix of Ella Fitzgerald and some of the icier singers, like Chris Connor or June Christy. Tracks include "Blue Turning Grey Over You", "Just Imagine", "My Kinda Love", "As Long As I Live", and "The Song Is You". 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Ultimately signing with RCA, Teddi King recorded three albums for the label, beginning with 1956's Bidin' My Time. She also had some minor chart success with the singles "Mr. Wonderful" (which made the Top 20 in 1956), "Married I Can Always Get" and "Say It Isn't So" (both of which made the Hot 100 from 19571958). Her critically praised 1959 album All the Kings' Songs found her interpreting the signature songs of contemporary male singers like Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole (the "kings" of the title)rge Shearing, matching the latter's exquisite accuracy with a sense of pitch well beyond the realm of the average pop vocalist.
