1999 : Paris Combo - Living Room
Artist: Paris Combo
Album: Living Room
Label: Boucherie Productions - Universal
Year: 1999; release: 2002
Genre: Vocal Jazz / Pop-Jazz / Swing
Format, bitrate: MP3 @320 kbps CBR
Time: 46mn

The French have always had a seductive way of combining words and music, from the chansons of Josquin de Prez to the operas of Bizet to the torch songs of Edith Piaf. Paris Combo continues this beguiling tradition with its sly combination of cabaret music, gypsy jazz, and avant-garde surrealism. Chanteuse Belle du Berry, who has that charming French mixture of vamp and little girl in her delivery, leads the group. Her voice is supple and expressive -- soaring, sliding, swooping, and moaning. Though the lyrics, all penned by du Barry, are in French (and no English translation is provided in the liner notes), her captivating performance breaks down all language barriers. Australian David Lewis does some fine, sensitive work on piano and trumpet. In the gorgeous ballad "Sous la Lune" (Under the Moon), he places the bell of his trumpet in a bowl of water and gurgles out a tender solo. The effect is eerily beautiful, without a trace of gimmickry. His inside-the-piano work on "L'Avenir Incertain du Titanic" (The Uncertain Future of the Titanic) gives the piece a sense of impending disaster that James Cameron could only dream of. Guitarist Potzi ripples off some Django Reinhardt-inspired riffs. In "Mobil'homme" he does a dead-on impression of the Middle Eastern oud on his guitar. Madagascar native Mano Razanajato turns in some inspired work on bass. He also lends his cool vocals to many of the songs. Franois Franois' percussion work is colorful and solid. Living Room is a strong release with tons of appeal. ~ Peggy Latkovich, All Music Guide

For a period in the early '60s, clarinetist Buddy DeFranco teamed up on a regular basis with Tommy Gumina, one of the few jazz accordionists. With bassist Bill Plummer and drummer John Guerin completing the quartet, DeFranco and Gumina indulge in some fine playing on their first of four LPs together for Mercury; none of the sets have reappeared on CD. The ten numbers (seven standards and three originals) are all concise, under five minutes in length; the sound of Gumina's accordion is an acquired taste, but he keeps the proceedings swinging and proves to be a fine match for DeFranco's fluid clarinet. ~ Scott Yanow, All Muasic Guide

1959: Teddy Charles - On Campus, Ivy League Jazz Concert
Artist: Teddy Charles
Album: On Campus, The Ivy League Jazz Concert
Label: Bethlehem (Japanese Reissue)
Year: 1959; release: 2010
Format: Flac
Size: 349mb
Total time: 39:37

This CD brings back a Bethlehem session, a rather unusual Teddy Charles set in that it is very much a jam session. Oddly enough Charles (despite being designated leader) is only on four of the nine numbers. With pianist Dave McKenna, bassist Bill Crow and drummer Ed Shaughnessy forming a swinging rhythm section, Charles is showcased on three numbers ("Yale Blue," "Whiffenpoof song" and "Nigerian Walk"), flutist Sam Most jams "That Old Black Magic," Zoot Sims is featured on two standards, Dave McKenna romps through "Struttin' with Some Barbeque," guitarist Jimmy Raney drops by for "Yesterdays" and the whole group comes together on "Rifftide." Few surprises occur but the obscure straightahead music is enjoyable enough.
~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

A great Bethlehem Records date from vibes man Teddy Charles stepping out here in a set that's one of his most openly swinging of the time! The record still has some of the modern currents of Teddy's other work, but also makes great use of Zoot Sims on tenor really pushing him out front for some bold solos on most numbers in a great group that also includes Jimmy Raney on guitar, Sam Most on flute, and Dave McKenna on piano. There's a bit of audience noise at times, but we can't tell for sure if this is an actual live album given the clarity of the performances throughout. Titles include "Nigerian Walk", "Rifftide", "Yesterdays", "That Old Black Magic", and "Yale Blue".

Released: 1967
Format: FLAC, LP- Rip
Time: 35:14
Size: 251MB

Heres another classic LP by Ray Bryant on the rare and elusive Cadet label. As usual Rays piano playing is simply marvellous as is the backing by his crack rhythm section; being Jimmy Rowser on bass and Rudy Collins on Drums. This album comprises of recordings taken from a live gig at Memory Lane L.A. All the excitement and showmanship of the trio is well and truly on display here. Four of the seven tunes are penned by Bryant; the others match with Soul Jazz appeal. In the end you wish you could have been there to share in the exuberance. Enjoy!

Simple stuff - but very nice! Ray's working here in a live trio setting - ala Ramsey Lewis or Les McCann from the same time - and his work on the album has a similar gutbuckety soul feel to it. The rhythm section of Jimmy Rowser bass and Rudy Collins drums is very tight - and the best cuts kick along with a heavy groove that's a lot more than you'd expect from the setting. Titles include "Little Suzie", "Takin My Ease", "City Tribal Dance", and "Prayer Song". Dusty Groove Inc.

Total time: 43:30

Dr. Billy Taylor has done a lot for jazz as an educator, promoter, and performer, but far too many of his releases from the 1950s and 1960s, such as this date for Mercury, remain out of print. The talented pianist is joined by the very strong rhythm section of Jim Hall, Bob Cranshaw, and Walter Perkins on this 1962 release, which focuses exclusively on his original compositions. Several of these songs have remained in his repertoire and have been recorded again in the decades that followed, including "Capricious," "Paraphrase," and "At la Carousel." The high point, though, is the tense up-tempo "Don't Gon't Down South," written during the turbulent battle for civil rights, which features fine solos by both the leader and Hall. This 1962 LP will be fairly tough to acquire.

REPOST with new links

This single-CD anthology is chock-full of the mighty Dexter Gordon (tenor sax) as leader or as primary participant in seven selections showcasing his surprisingly wide array of interpretive skills within the blues. While the majority of the contents have been culled from Gordon's late-'60s and early-'70s Prestige output, the update of Jay McShann's "The Jumpin' Blues," as well as Gordon's own "Sticky Wicket," are both alternate takes that weren't available prior to the all-inclusive 11-disc Complete Prestige Recordings (2004) box set. The latter opens the compilation as the double-sax assault of Gordon and James Moody (tenor sax) is supported by Barry Harris (piano), Buster Williams (bass), and Albert "Tootie" Heath (drums). The midtempo and minor chord changes have a menacing effect as the two tenors bounce ideas off one another. "The Panther" swings with a sinuous syncopated flow thanks to Larry Ridley (bass) and especially Alan Dawson (drums). Tommy Flanagan (piano) is also along for the ride and lays down a few classy lines of his own, which are punctuated by a brief solo from Williams. Gordon joins forces with Junior Mace (piano) at the 1970 Montreux Jazz Festival for a live cover of Thelonious Monk's "Blue Monk." Martin Rivera (bass) and Oliver Jackson (drums) are a solid, yet transparent rhythm section well-suited to frame Gordon's soulful and expressive sonic tug of war with Mance's refined ivories. The hot and driving "Lonesome Lover Blues" finds Gordon, Gene Ammons (tenor sax), Jodie Christian (piano), Rufus Reid (bass), and Wilbur Campbell (drums) blowing away the blues of guest vocalist Vi Redd -- daughter of drummer Alton Redd -- who was not only an alto saxophonist in her own right, but as evidenced by the contributions heard here, she was a dynamic soul shouter as well. The previously alluded to "alternate" of "The Jumpin' Blues" is from an upscale confab featuring Wynton Kelly (piano), Sam Jones (bass), and Roy Brooks. "Oh! Karen O" is definitely a keeper. Thad Jones (trumpet/flugelhorn) goes head to head with Gordon as Stanley Clarke (bass), Hank Jones (piano), and Louis Hayes (drums) give them plenty of space for their winding and expressive ventures. Clarke's interchanges are interesting as they weave and entwine harmonically with Gordon. Jimmy Heath's "Gingerbread Boy" returns listeners to the stage of the Montreux Jazz Festival. It is three years later and the personnel of Hampton Hawes (keyboards), Bob Cranshaw (bass), and Kenny Clarke (drums) provide a cool, laid-back groove as Gordon's sax underscores his keen and sensitive abilities as a wordless narrator who can create sonic portraits with the hues and shades of his empathetic tenor. For that reason alone Blue Dex: Dexter Gordon Plays the Blues is a worthy investment.

Rusty Bryant, a veteran R&B sax player, was somewhat forgotten at the time of his debut Prestige album, but due to the commercial success of this recording, Bryant would record seven more sessions for Prestige during the next five years. Actually, this date is a bit surprising, with Bryant sticking exclusively to alto and sometimes using an electrified model similar to what Lou Donaldson was playing at the time. The music (mostly blues-oriented originals) is enjoyable, with plenty of boogaloos and soulful vamps. In addition to Bryant, the main soloists are guitarist Grant Green, in excellent form, and organist Sonny Phillips.

Size: 322 mb

As is often the case with a Best of or, a Greatest Hits package of various artists or, primers of a certain genre of music, the results can be at times uneven, with so much to offer. Such is the case here in this latest collection package of various and, contemporary Swedish Jazz Artists. CONTEMPORARY SWEDISH JAZZ 2007 is a mixed bag of musicians plying their craft in varying styles.
Big Band, Female Vocalists, Trios and Quartets and, Avante Garde styles all on one program can be jolting to the senses. This musical collection goes from the mellow to the booming from track to track. Like a salad bowl or, even a smorgasbord of sounds, this program has many surprises.
A Two-CD set featuring 25 separate tracks of already known and, not-so-well known, artist on the Swedish Jazz scene and, it gives the listener a broader peek into just what that scene is all about. This assessment by this reviewer is not so much a look at how the program was assembled but, the placement of the artists from opening track to the final song.
My list of performances of note include……
The Magnus Lindgren Quartet, heard playing their song, BLUE STAR on Disk Two, is one Nordic Jazz group that made the journey over, to perform before a North American audience this year. While Lina Nybergs soft vocals on track two of Disk One, Madalena, are lovely and, largely unknown to Jazz enthusiasts on these shores, one would have to ask why the selection of this track? Nyberg recorded four earlier CDs and, thus, has a larger repertoire of songs and performances available,that would have done her better justice that what is offered here.
The song, LOCHIELS WARNING by the Peter Asplund Quartet sounds like a 1980s-era Miles Davis riff, or even a rip-off, from beginning to end. With the sound of the muted trumpet fluttering to the rhythm, the influence of Davis is unmistakable. Asplunds band is another superb Swedish group who made it over to North American shores this year. With his LIVE performance at New Yorks Scandinavia House in June, the Davis influence was not apparent, this song was omitted and, his sound was fresh and original. Asplund is too talented a composer and musician to get caught into the, well, he sounds like Miles,” sort of trap. Willy nilly, this is the sort of box many Jazz critics will place on Asplund with the selection of this track here.
HITMAN, by the Jonas Kullhammer Quartet, is pure straight-ahead Jazz, taking one to a Greenwich Village caf. It is a fun and lively track with a lusty Saxophone, grabbing you around by the neck and, its melodic piano riffs forms part of the song theme which sometimes clashes with drum and sax riffs that demands attention. It is a friendly clash of musical ideas that leaves the listener wanting more.
STONER, the opening track on Disk one by Oscar Schonning is a jolting and abstract song. As such, a curious beginning for a program essentially introducing the uninformed to the showcase, which makes one wonder why the producers would have this composition placed as the lead-off? The next dozen tracks that follow have no relation to the Schonning composition at all.
Disk Two opens with a lovely composition by the Bobo Stensen Trio called, GOODBYE, from the CD of the same name. Stensens collaborative work with several Jazz Masters on the Nordic scene has been reported in this magazine in recent issues. Here again, his mastery of the keyboards and his melodic touch continues to please the ear.It is clear why Stensen is a musician in high demand.
In short, Disk Two contains superior performances and should have been flipped-flopped with the opening program as the performances there are considerable weaker than disk two. The second disk could have been a stand alone program featuring perhaps, just instrumentalists. The aforementioned BLUE STAR, Jonas Knutssons THE KANGEROO WOMEN, Lars Jansson trios LATOUR and Fabian Kallerdahl Galores RAGGA-EXCERPTS are among four of the strongest tracks on the second disk.
Yet, there are a number of fine vocalists featured among the artists on this two-disk showcase. VIKTORIA TOLSTOY, RIGMOR GUSTAFSSON and LINA NYBERG, who is featured on disk one, are all extremely talented singers. Tolstoys composition, SOUTH, is a particularly moving and colorful song featured here. She will be one Nordic vocalist to watch in the coming months and years.
Yet, even with the strong performances by all of the above vocalists, one thought becomes sadly apparent. The search for the next female Swedish Jazz vocalist with broad range and coloring continues, following the tragic death of Monika Zetterlund in 2005. Zetterlund was a giant among her peers and contemporaries and, her passing has left an equally giant void among Swedish Jazz singers. There will never be another like her. One would have to ask the producers why didnt they merely cluster the vocalists featured here on consecutive tracks, rather than spread them out, on this two disk program?
Swedish Jazz vocalists, especially the women on the scene, are just as important as other vocalists and, instrumentalists anywhere. Their contribution is an important cog that helps to push all musical movements and, perhaps, the producers of this program may want to consider a showcase CD of just contemporary Jazz vocalists in the future.
Like any GREATEST HITS presentation there are bound to be peaks and valleys along the way. Again, such is the case with this CD program. Yet, for those who want an even wider glimpse into the current Jazz scene in Sweden, this two CD set is recommended. It is important to note that: Unevenness in this collection does not suggest a weakness, or even a thinning of available talent among Swedish Jazz artists. Some tracks may light your fire while others may not move you at all. Those featured here come from a variety of Scandinavian record labels and, the information on this disk makes them accessible for further review.
RUNNING THOUGHTS by the Tolvan Big Big closes the program on a high note and, warms the sense as both the year-end holiday and Winter season moves in.

"I can feel the pain, Lord, it's raining in my heart," Bettye LaVette howls on "The Forecast," and it sounds like it. On this stunning comeback -- her first American release in over 20 years -- the feisty soul singer rips through an hour of music with the pent-up hunger of a caged tiger at feeding time. Helped immeasurably by producer/songwriter Dennis Walker, best known for his breakout work with Robert Cray, LaVette moans, screams, shouts, pleads, and growls her way through a dozen tracks that'll leave even the most jaded R&B fan begging for more. One of the casualties of music biz politics, LaVette has a style that has only sharpened with age. In her mid-fifties at the time of this recording, the singer has a husky voice that tears at the edges, adding deeper emotion. Although the production leans toward the slick side, it leaves room for the singer to dominate each track. Walker, who wrote or co-wrote nine of these tunes, provides heart-tugging yet defiant material perfect for LaVette's take-no-prisoners approach. The singer plays the part of the scorned, aggressive woman, left behind but strong enough to know she's better off without that no-good scoundrel. Song tiles such as "Salt in My Wounds," "Serves Him Right," and "It Ain't Worth It After a While" tell the story without having to hear a lyric. LaVette squeezes every ounce of emotion from this material, lashing into it with a barely contained explosive delight. Like a stage actress, she builds up the tension gradually until igniting in a shower of yelps and repeated phrases similar to Otis Redding at his most impassioned. This is a powerful album -- moving, intense, and honest -- from an artist desperately making up for lost time. It's a success for everyone involved, and deserves to put Bettye LaVette back on American stages where she belongs.

This double album features flutist Hubert Laws at his finest. The music ranges from classical-oriented pieces to straight-ahead jazz with touches of '70s funk included in the mix. The supporting cast includes keyboardist Bob James on most tracks, guitarist Gene Bertoncini, bassist Ron Carter, drummer Steve Gadd, three strings, and Hubert's brother Ronnie on tenor (his solo on John Coltrane's "Moment's Notice" is arguably Ronnie's best ever on record). Whether it be works by Satie or Sonny Rollins, this recording is one of the most rewarding of Hubert Laws' career.

To my friends in JBC! Please enjoy, this is rare and nice album.

At the time of this Prestige set (reissued on CD), Herbie Mann was a flutist who occasionally played tenor and Bobby Jaspar a tenor-saxophonist who doubled on flute. Two of the four songs find them switching back and forth while the other two are strictly flute features. With pianist Tommy Flanagan, guitarist Joe Puma, bassist Wendell Marshall and drummer Bobby Donaldson contributing quiet support, the two lead voices constantly interact and trade off during this enjoyable performance. Highpoints are the haunting "Tel Aviv" and a delightful version of "Chasing the Bird." ~ by Scott Yanow, AMG.

Baden Powell, a renowned guitarist in a nation of guitarists, here plays both solo and in trio, and which you prefer will depend on whether you more value rhapsodic freedom or focused tightness. Either way this is a celebrated recording by a phenomenal artist, and long unavailable.

A CD reissue of a 1981 double LP, Big Blues is a sprawling piece of modernized electric jump blues that honestly never quite catches fire despite the best efforts of Jimmy Witherspoon and his guest star, tenor saxophonist Hal "Cornbread" Singer. Both Witherspoon and Singer play and sing with soulful grit and a relaxed ease, but the band backing them never quite comes together. One issue is that there's no bass player on the album, just keyboardist Mike Carr working a set of bass pedals with his feet à la Ray Manzarek of the Doors; this leaves drummer Harold Smith out in the cold, unable to work up the kind of in-the-pocket groove this kind of slow-cooking blues needs to get over. The overextended song lengths are no help either; one-third of these 12 songs break the seven-minute barrier, with "Whiskey Drinkin' Woman" and "Lotus Blossom" weighing in at a staggering eight and a half minutes each. Although both Witherspoon and Singer get in a few good solos, the length is simply not justified by the mostly lackadaisical performances.

Despite a title that portends space age pop sensibilities, Music for Hi-Fi Bugs in fact offers a decidedly modernist interpretation of the classic big-band formula. Channeling the influence of onetime boss Stan Kenton, Pete Rugolo and an all-star cast of West Coast confederates including Russ Freeman, Dave Pell, and Pete Candoli both tighten up and stretch out, forging bold, focused performances that nevertheless afford the individual players the space to deliver complex, inventive solos. Rugolo's arrangements dazzle, boasting a rich palette of colors and tones that amplify the artistry of the individual performances -- familiar melodies like "These Foolish Things" and "Dream of You" seem fresh and new all over again. ~ Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide
