1993: Antti Sarpila-HOT Time IN Umeå-A Tribute To Benny Goodman Music » Jazz » Swing
1993: Antti Sarpila-HOT Time IN Umeå-A Tribute To Benny Goodman
Artist: Antti Sarpila
Album: HOT Time IN Umeå-A Tribute To Benny Goodman
Label: Phontastic CD-NCD-8833
Year:1993 ; release:1994
Format, bitrate: MP3, 320 kbps
Time: 62:23
Size: 146.9MB


Antti Sarpila formerly performed in a Benny Goodman-inspired style, and studied under Bob Wilber, and he was part of the Tribute to Benny Goodman (Carnegie Hall, 1988), and later figured in six tours of the USA. Antti Sarpila really lets himself go on this album and makes his clarinet sing.This is one of his best performances so far.
1957: Manny Albam - West Side Story Big Band, Progressive Jazz
1957: Manny Albam - West Side Story
Artist: Manny Albam
Album: West Side Story
Year: 1957; release: 1974
Quality: MP3@320 kbps (LP-rip)
Size: 68,1 mb
Total time: 31:59

Arranger Manny Albam was a logical choice to lead a large ensemble performing excerpts from the huge Broadway hit West Side Story. With an all-star band that includes Gene Quill, Ernie Royal, Joe Newman, Jimmy Cleveland, Al Cohn, Hank Jones, Bob Brookmeyer, Milt Hinton, Eddie Costa, and far too many others to list, Albam successfully transforms Leonard Bernstein's imaginative score into cool jazz. Since there are multiple musicians for most instruments, it is unclear who is soloing much of the time, though Gene Quill's laughing alto sax and Hank Jones' piano stand out in the opening "Prologue and Jet Song." Of particular interest is Albam's method of combining several different themes in the "Finale." Originally issued on Coral, with later reissues on Vocalion and Decca, this is easily one of the best of many jazz LPs saluting West Side Story, though it may be tougher to find than most of the others. ~ Ken Dryden, All Music Guide
1966: Freddie McCoy - Funk Drops Music » Soul » Soul-Jazz
1966: Freddie McCoy - Funk Drops
Artist: Freddie McCoy
Album: Funk Drops
Label: Prestige Records (Catalog#: PR 7470) US
Year: 1966
Released: 1967
Format: FLAC, LP-Rip
Time: 34:07
Size: 182MB

Holy cow! Freddie McCoy's records are amongst the hardest to find from the Prestige catalog. And why not? This funky vibes player had a great sound, and his records have a cool soul vibes sound that's very different from other players in the same vein, such as Johnny Lytle. This LP features 2 types of tracks - some jazz, and some funk - and both are played by different groups. Joanne Brackeen plays with the jazz group on tracks like "Moye", "Tough Talk", and "Theodora"; and Pretty Purdie backs a larger group on the funkier cuts like "Funk Drops" and "My Babe". 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Funk Drops is the third album by American jazz vibraphonist Freddie McCoy which was recorded in 1966 for the Prestige label. This is a classic Jazz Funk / Soul Jazz LP. Just listen to And I Love Her as a cover masterpiece. Another highlight is the Billy Taylor piece Theodora. Brackeens playing is a splendid counterpoint to Freddies vibes. Enjoy!

2004: Roberto Fonseca - Temperamento
Artist: Roberto Fonseca
Album: Temperamento
Label: Disconforme / Yemaya
Year: 2004; release: 2007
Format, bitrate: Mp3, 320 Kbps
Time: 01:06:59
Size: 148 MB


Called up by the BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB executives to cover for the vacancy that was left by the great Rubén González, and requested specifically by the celebrated American pianist Herbie Hancock to share the stage with him when they were both on tour in Japan.

A nice set of Afro-accented Cuban jazz from pianist Roberto Fonseca! Roberto's piano is well out front of the combo, give the set just the right kind of jazzy sweep, without getting too swept up in the percussion. The core group includes sax, clarinet and flute by Javier Zalba, guitar by Elmer Ferrar, drums by Ruy Lopez-Nussa and percussion by Emilio del Monte Jr., plus a host of guest percussionists and choral vocalists! 12 tracks including "Yeyeo", "Igbae", "70s", "Para Que No Hables", "De Regreso" and many more.Highly recommended!

1960: Buddy Morrow And His Orchestra ‎ Poe For Moderns Music » Jazz » Big Band
1960: Buddy Morrow And His Orchestra ‎ Poe For Moderns
Artist: Buddy Morrow And His Orchestra
Album: Poe For Moderns
Label: RCA Victor (Living Stereo series)
Year: 1960
Format, bitrate: Mp3, 320 kBit/s (my cd)
Time: 32:36
Size: 82 MB (full scans)


In this album, Buddy Morrow has translated many of Poe's best-known works into musical settings for his big, flexible band. Most of these arrangements are loose-fitting interpretations that try to capture the mood, rather than tell the story---Tone Poe-ems, you might say. Two examples of Poe's verse are turned into song by RCA Victor's top vocal quintet, the Skip-Jacks. Another two are heard in dramatic recitations by Keith McKenna. Mr. McKenna, incidentally, teaches English in Long Island's Bellport High School and has had great success with such recitations in class.

Poe For Moderns is from the Living Stereo series by RCA Victor and designed to market the newest advances in industry technology, as many of you already know. As some of you also know, Buddy Morrow is a slightly more obscure--but nonetheless industrious--figure in the history Space Age (Bachelor Pad) music and did a decent amount of recordings for RCA Victor, some of their subsidiary labels, and others entirely such as Mercury during the '50s and '60s. Naturally, then, you can expect to hear arranging and orchestration on this release that is similar to his contemporaries such as Sid Bass and Marty Gold (i.e. the typical Big Band trumpets and Atomic Age ambiance). This release, admittedly, stands out as being one of the more gimmicky releases from the time period as well (at least superficially).

AMG rating: 1980: Teddy Wilson - Gershwin, Ellington And More

The last years of pianist Teddy Wilson's career were productive, fruitful, energetic, and active ones. This 14-track 1980 live concert setting showcases Wilson playing standards written by Duke Ellington and the brothers Gershwin, and they give the pianist excellent vehicles to strut his stuff. While in a trio setting with the relatively obscure bassist Layman Jackson and drummer Billy Daniels, Wilson is the centerpiece, playing solo for long stretches before his rhythm mates chime in. Many of the Gershwin features are extended medleys with multiple tunes strung together, Wilson playing fast and strong or delicate and light at the snap of two fingers. The Ellington material is closer to Wilson's true heart and all of it is rendered beautifully. As was his style, you hear quite a few stride inflections, blues, ballads, and some fleet boppish lines. Teddy Wilson was precious, and this recording -- one of the best in the Jazz Hour series -- shows why.

1968: Freddie McCoy - Listen Here
Artist: Freddie McCoy
Album: Listen Here
Label: Prestige Records (Catalog#: PR 7582)
Year: 1968
Format: FLAC, LP-Rip
Size: 221MB
Time: 35:27

One of the hardest to find albums by this lost 60s soul jazz vibist and all of his albums are pretty darn hard to find! The album's also perhaps his best as Freddie takes a little more straight funky jazz approach, and loses some of the pop feel of his other albums. There's 2 different groups on here one a bit large, and with Wally Richardson, Bernard Purdie, and Dud Bascomb; the other a groovy quintet with Joanne Brackeen on electric piano and Gene Walker on Varitone. The album includes a great cover of "Listen Here", plus "Stone Wall" and "Short Circuit". ~ 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc..
1956-1957: Julie London About The Blues (bonus tracks) Music » Jazz » Vocal Jazz
1956-1957: Julie London  About The Blues (bonus tracks)
Artist: Julie London
Album: About The Blues (bonus tracks)
Label: Capitol / EMI
Years: 1956-1957; release: 2002
Quality: MP3@320 kbps
Size: 104 mb
Total time: 45:54

Julie London wasn't really a jazz singer, but she possessed a definite jazz feeling and many of her finest albums (such as Julie Is Her Name and Julie...At Home) feature small-group jazz backings. About the Blues was aimed at the 1950s pop market, but it may just be her best orchestral session. Since downbeat torch songs were London's specialty, the album features an excellent selection of nocturnal but classy blues songs that play to her subtle strengths instead of against them. Likewise, Russ Garcia's clever arrangements bleed jazz touches and short solos over the solitary strings and big-band charts. Like June Christy, London usually included a couple of new songs in with a selection of standards, and her husband, Bobby Troup, wrote two excellent numbers for the album. One of them, the emotionally devastating "Meaning of the Blues," is the album's highlight, and was turned into a jazz standard after Miles Davis recorded it the same year for Miles Ahead. ~ Nick Dedina, All Music Guide

Hip early work from Julie London with full jazz orchestra backing by Russ Garcia, whose soundscapes are perfect for that dreamy style of singing she was using at the time a blend of the sublime and sad, floating along with almost effortless ease, but hiding a huge wellspring of emotion! The album's a great illustration of the subtle talents that Julie brought to the vocal scene of the 50s and it's a nice contrast to some of the smaller group sides done by her at the time. Bobby Troup produced the set and the album's got versions of his songs "Meaning Of The Blues" and "The Blues Is All I Ever Had", plus the tracks "Get Set For The Blues", "Bye Bye Blues", "Bouquet Of Blues", and "Invitation To The Blues". 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
1951:The Basin Street Six-America's Music Music » Jazz » Traditional Jazz » Dixieland

1951:The Basin Street Six-America's Music
Artists: The Basin Street Six
Album: America's Music
Label: Mercury 10-Inch LP MG-25160
Years: 1950-1951
Format, bitrate: MP3,320 kbps (LP-rip)
Time: 22:59
Size: 57.3MB

From 1950-1954, Pete led The Basin Street Six, a band that also featured legendary trumpet player/vocalist George Girard, along with Joe Rotie on trombone, Roy Zimmerman on piano, Buddy Franks on bass and Charlie Duke on drums.

Dixieland in 1950 was no longer popular and the Basin Street Six was created as the greatest unemployed band in the City, It was George Girard who came up with a regular two nights a week job at L'Enfants on Canal Boulevard. The band had to play dance music mostly. Bill Reed of WWL TV picked up the show as part of his dixieland revival campaign and within three months the Basin Street Six had found their niche as a funny hat band, wearing old Mardi Gras costumes, switching instruments and even dressing up as girls on occasions, a real fun band but still playing good dixieland jazz.

In fact the band was good enough to make their first recording session towards the end of the year. The group soon landed a recording contract with the Mercury imprint in 1952. For Mercury they recorded a handful of singles and LPs. Pete Fountain was on his way.
1979: Bingo Miki & The Inner Galaxy Orchestra - Montreux Cyclone Modern Big Band, Contemporary Jazz
1979: Bingo Miki & The Inner Galaxy Orchestra - Montreux Cyclone
Artist: Bingo Miki & The Inner Galaxy Orchestra

Sometimes it pays to be lucky. After searching in vain for a couple of hardtofind albums from the mid70s by Tokyobased Toshiyuki Miyamas New Herd (see August bigband reviews), I went to the source the affable Tee Fujii, proprietor of Three Blind Mice Records. Of course, he replied, he would be happy to send copies of both albums. And, he added, he would ship a third disc as well Montreux Cyclone by Bingo Miki and the Inner Galaxy Orchestra. Terrific, I thought. Thats exactly what I need; an album of otherworldly music by another Sun Ra clone. How wrong can one be? Wrong enough, in this case, to offer Tee an apology for doubting him, and to inform whoever is reading this that not only is the 25member Inner Galaxy Orchestra unlike Sun Ra or any other body in that firmament, it is an absolutely spectacular straightahead big band in the Basie/Herman/Kenton tradition performing (in concert at Montreux) superlative compositions and arrangements by Miki, Richard Davis, Jon Faddis, Bob Brookmeyer and Don Sebesky (Davis, Faddis and Brookmeyer sit in with the ensemble on their respective charts, while guitarist Joe Beck is showcased on Sebeskys Alcazar). The album opens with Mikis fabulous threepart suite, Montreux Cyclone, which encompasses impressive solos by flugel Hiroshi Abiko on Part 1 (Old Sunshine), drummer Yoshiyuki Nakamura, percussionist Tetsuya Furutani and tenor/flutist Sleepy Matsumato on Part 2 (Cyclone from the East) and pianist Masaru Imada on Part 3 (In the Summer Shadow). Matsumoto, on flute, mirrors closely the singular mannerisms of the legendary Rahsaan Roland Kirk. Track 4, Pitter Pat, is a chopstesting showcase for bassist Davis, while trumpeter Faddis steps front and center (and into the stratosphere) on his sumptuous balladcumblazer, Zylvia. If Faddis is in topnotch form (and make no mistake, he is), valve trombonist Brookmeyer is equally sharp and masterful on The First Love Song (when he plays in the pocket, as he does here, Brookmeyer has few peers). After Becks dazzling voyage on Alcazar, Miki ends the concert with two more of his noteworthy compositions, Mermans Dance (from the suite Back to the Sea) and a magnificent finale that almost succeeds in lowering everything that preceded it to the status of an hors doeuvre an ultramodern Jazz version of Jean Sibelius classic tone poem, Finlandia, enhanced by galvanizing ensemble passages and crisp solos by Nakamura, trumpeter Kenji Yoshida and clarinetist Masao Suzuki. Batten down the hatches; this Cyclone is a monster whose awesome intensity and power can blow you away.

Year: 1956
Format, bitrate: MP3; 320 kbps (LP-rip)
Time: 50:15
Size: 116.3MB

Anyone interested in dixieland jazz performed by masters should seek out this LP. The musicians on the LP are as follows: Rex Stewart (trumpet and session leader), Albert Nicholas (cl), Fernando Arbelo (tr), John Dengler (bs), Herbert Nichols (p), Tommy Benford (dr), John Field (b). The tracks are: That's A-Plenty, Basin Street Blues, High Society, Tin Roof Blues, Dixieland One-Step, South Rampart Street Parade, Weary Blues, Apex Blues, Wolverine Blues, When the Saints Come Marching In. Most will recognize the name Rex Stewart from his long association with Duke Ellington and his Orchestra. Herbie Nichols was also a vastly under-recorded pianist most known for his Blue Note recordings. The inclusion of those two musicians alone is enough to make this record worthwhile. All the musicians shine. Stewart's coronet pierces the atmosphere of the recordings time and again. The performances come from a live date at the Savoy in Boston sometime in the 1950s. The enthusiasm of the audience comes through. Get the record and you'll know why. Highly recommended. ~ Amazon.com

An unusual set from the legendary vocalist Chris Connor a record that's graced with a boozy later image of Chris on the front, but which features a host of rare gems from her late 50s years at Atlantic Records! There's some really wonderful work on the record that easily matches, if not beats Chris Connor gems on some of her bigger albums of the time especially since some of the cuts show Connor trying out some new modes, and new ideas elements that go past her usual vocal jazz styles, with some cool inflections that really open things up. Highlights include great versions of "Senor Blues", "Moon Ride", "I Sold My Heart To The Junkman", and "Invitation" plus "Long Hot Summer", "Fortune Cookies", "Circus", and "Flying Home".

Billy Bauer was the most celebrated guitarist in early modern jazz, winning more awards than any other on the instrument and establishing an enviable reputation as a member of the Woody Herman rhythm section. As a longtime sideman for Lennie Tristano and Lee Konitz, he made some brilliant recordings showcasing his magisterial authority with contrapuntal lines.

Despite his long career as a sideman, he did only two recording dates as a leader, both quartet sessions, compiled in this CD. In them he managed at all times to extract the greatest tenderness from his instrument. Playing with soul, swinging subtly, straight ahead or lightly as the need arose, he accomplished the rare and difficult feat of combining good jazz with accessibility.

AMG Rating: 1955: Mel Torme - It's a Blue World  (bonus tracks)

Mel Tormé had spent the first decade of his solo career being treated by record companies as a pop singer when Bethlehem offered to treat him as a jazz artist in 1955. The label requested that his first album be a collection of ballads, probably noting the recent success of Frank Sinatra's In the Wee Small Hours. But Tormé picked the songs, ranging from Jerome Kern and P.G. Wodehouse's "Till the Clouds Roll By" from 1917 to Duke Ellington and Paul Webster's "I've Got It Bad and That Ain't Good" from 1941. The 15-piece orchestra assembled by his accompanist Al Pellegrini backed the singer, and Pellegrini, Sandy Courage, Andre Previn, Marty Paich, and Russ Garcia wrote the arrangements Tormé sang with delicate precision, caressing the lyrics. Despite the album title, his interpretations had none of the darkness of Sinatra. Rather, Tormé invested the songs with warmth and confidence. Recorded and released around the time he turned 30, It's a Blue World marked a turning point in Mel Tormé's recording career. ~ William Ruhlmann, All Music Guide

”Cyrille's voice is like fine whiskey...”
~ WASHINGTON POST

Now entering its 35th year, the Chicago Jazz Orchestra has built a resume that ranks it among the greatest artistic institutions in the city, if not the United States. For their latest recording, director Jeff Lindberg teams the CJO with the quickly emerging vocalist Cyrille Aime for a diverse album of great jazz classics. Beside the timeless arrangements of Claus Ogerman, Billy May, Paul Weston, Count Basie and Duke Ellington, new arrangements are offered by Diego Figueiredo, Assaf Gleizner, Taylor Eigsti, Cyrille Aime, and members of the Orchestra. From the standard big band setting to a full studio orchestra with strings, ”Burstin Out!” offers a sweeping, swinging recording that promises to become a classic.

Album: Dig These Blues
Label: Atlantic Records (Catalog#: SD 1436)
Format: FLAC, LP-Rip
Released: 1966
Size: 216MB
Time: 35:17

Hank kicks back and blows soulfully - working in a variety of groups with hip players that include Wendell Harrison, Ali Mohammed, Wilbur Brown, and Leroy Cooper. The overall sound is similar to Crawford's other work on Atlantic - nothing too challenging, but in a soulful mode that's always pretty tight. Titles include "New Blues", "Hollywood Blues", "These Tears", "HC Blues", and "The Crazy Saloon". Dusty Groove Inc.

This LP in many ways could easily be considered one of Hank Crawford's finest albums released on Atlantic records. It showcases Hank in some excellent groupings and performing some great soul jazz-jazz blues styled tunes. Highlights include the title track Dig These Blues, Don't Get Around Much Anymore and "Baby Won't You Please Come Home" featuring Marcus Belgrave on trumpet. The final tune, "Bluff City Blues," features Hank on piano, also heard on "The Crazy Saloon". Overall some deep soul grooves that clearly express Crawford's wonderful versatility and phenomenal musicianship.

The track list, creates an intrigue that is uncommon on a debut release. The relatable songs are about redemption of the human condition and dealing with painful issues. You get the idea that the sky is falling, but somehow there is a silver lining and a path to better times. This album is a seismic juxtaposition of tragedy and hope, with a little bit of fun and flirting along the way.
Back Road Revelation does not follow the typical 12 bar formula, as it explores all byways leading to the heart of the blues. Drawing on the electrical traditions of Buddy Guy, Jimmy Page, and to some extent texas blues greats like SRV and ZZ top in the guitar end, melded with face punching melodic vocals delivered over the 3.5 octave range of singer Tara MacKenzie. It is glued together with the snappy, funky pulsing groove of Dawson and Weir.
Musically, the band explores the flavors of southern gospel, electric rock blues, shuffle and soulful bluesy ballads. Im Gone, covers the gut wrenching revelation that a 20 year marriage is over, with no last hurrah. On Dont Let the Devil Get on Your Train Dawson shines with his seething, rumbling bass line. In contrast, Treat Me Like Im Trouble is a sassy flirty song with the right amount of grinding harmonica,along with tasty organ underlay. It has lyrical innuendo, pop and sizzle. The only cover song on the album is Heavy Love made famous by Buddy Guy, was chosen for its groove, lyrical content and swagger.
In scope, palette, and composition, "Back Road Revelation" is an exciting and solid debut from this band that is on a mission to become a household name in the blues community and this is that first step, on a journey of a thousand miles.
