1944-1946: Bunk Johnson - Plays Popular Songs
Artist: Bunk Johnson
Album: Plays Popular Songs
Label: AMCD
Years: 1944-1946; release: 2015
Format, bitrate: mp3/320kbps
Time: 1:05:43
Size: 135 mb

This CD has two of veteran New Orleans trumpeter Bunk Johnson's better sets. He is first heard playing eight songs in a trio with pianist Don Ewell (here showing off the strong influence of Jelly Roll Morton) and drummer Alphonse Steele. Most of those numbers are rather unlikely vehicles for Johnson, but his taste in music was a lot wider than that of most of his followers. Among the highlights are "In the Gloaming," "I'll Take You Home Again, Kathleen," "Beautiful Doll" and "Poor Butterfly." The second half of the release is taken from several dates and matches Johnson with his working group of the period, a pianoless sextet that also includes clarinetist George Lewis, trombonist Jim Robinson and drummer Baby Dodds. In addition to a few standards, Johnson's group also performs such offbeat material as "I Don't Want to Walk Without You," "The Waltz You Saved for Me" and "You Always Hurt the One You Love." Nine of its dozen selections were released for the first time on this disc. There are moments where the band gets a little out-of-tune (particularly Lewis, who was trying out a different clarinet), but in general the group is heard at its prime, performing joyous ensemble-oriented music. Highly recommended to fans of classic New Orleans jazz. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

Year: 1963
Format, My Vinyl Rip, Flac Files
Time: 32:55
Size: 217MB

A talented veteran pianist/vocalist, Page Cavanaugh and his trio (with guitarist Al Viola and bassist Lloyd Pratt) were quite popular during the latter half of the 1940s. Cavanaugh started taking piano lessons when he was nine. He picked up early experience playing with the Ernie Williamson band (1938-1939). While in the military, he first met up with Viola and Pratt. After their discharge, the trio's swinging playing (inspired by the Nat King Cole Trio), plus their whispered vocals, made them a hit during the mid- to late '40s; among their best-sellers were "The Three Bears," "Walkin' My Baby Back Home," and "All of Me." The group appeared in several movies including A Song Is Born and Romance on the High Seas. Cavanaugh worked steadily in the Los Angeles area for five decades, heading a septet (the Page 7) in the early '60s, and performing regularly with his trio (which once again includes Al Viola) beginning in the late '80s. His earlier RCA dates are difficult to find, but he recorded in 1989 for Star Line.

1956: Pete Fountain And The Kings Of Dixieland

Year: 1956; release:1964
Format, bitrate: MP3 256 kbps
Time: 29:02
Size: 65.0 MB

Through the formative years of his musical training, Pete Fountain performed with several sensational bands. One such band was the Junior Dixieland Band which performed in the famous Parisian Room - often performing for legendary jazz men. It was a heady time of life and Pete was savoring every moment. A few years later Pete joined Phil Zito's International Dixieland Express. They were playing the El Morocco on the street. He also played with Sonny Bonano and the Kings of Dixieland where this material originated. The music on this album is good, the recordings are well done. However the quality of the record vinyl is poor, sounding worn out, even though my copy was new when I listened to it. Surface noise was high, the records had no protective liner jacket. Still I enjoyed listening to material. ~ From liner note.

Altoist Charles McPherson, who developed his own sound out of the Charlie Parker style, plays a couple of blues and four standards on this frequently exciting session. With the strong assistance of pianist Barry Harris, bassist Sam Jones and drummer Leroy Williams, McPherson is in top form with the highlights being his feature on "East of the Sun" and a heated "Bouncing with Bud."

AMG Rating: 1998: Bob Mintzer Quartet - Quality Time

Yellowjackets reedman Bob Mintzer, best-known outside that group for his big band recordings, steps out in a more straight-ahead jazz direction with Quality Time. Several of the tracks have a feel similar to the Yellowjackets acoustic work, while "All Is Quiet" sounds like a Coltrane ballad from the mid-'60s. On eight of the album's ten tracks, Mintzer's supporting cast includes pianist Phil Markowitz, bassman Jay Anderson and drummer Peter Erskine. The remaining two cuts are probably outtakes from recent Yellowjackets' recording sessions, with Mintzer playing bass clarinet beside Russell Ferrante's clavinet on the group-written "Emit A1," and the quartet showing its acoustic chops on "Family." Quality Time is more of a blowing session than the typical Yellowjackets disc, but the compositions and performances are every bit as high in quality.

Introducing Clark Terry; The Dave Bailey Sextet-One Foot In The Gutter; Clark Terry With Thelonious Monk and Jimmy Hamiltons- Its About Time.

Oh and arrangements by a certain Mr Quincy Jones! The Dave Bailey Sextet-One Foot In The Gutter, Clark Terry is here featured in the Bailey band, who is quoted in the original liner notes as saying.I got the musicians..particular favourites of mine..together as soon as possible. Joined for the recording session by fellow musicians and friends, the set takes on a party atmosphere with all musicians blowing up a storm. Clark Terry Quartet with Thelonious Monk- Mr Terry must have been doing something right as our next album finds him with his own quartet accompanied by the legendary pianist Thelonious Monk, in a very rare and extremely accommodating sideman role!! Completing the quartet is Sam Jones on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums. This fine album could also be the first time that the fleugelhorn is featured as a jazz instrument! Jimmy Hamilton-Its About Time-under-rated tenor saxophonist and clarinettist Jimmy Hamilton wrote all the material for this swinging album. He is joined by Clark Terry on trumpet and flugelhorn, Britt Woodman on trombone, Tommy Flanagan on piano, Wendell Marshall on bass and Mel Lewis on drums.

Another one of the post-Europe Dave Pike recordings, with a sound that's a bit straighter than usual, but still with his usual great take on jazzy vibes playing. The title track's a nice breezy groover, and the LP also includes two more originals, one with a Latiny feel called "Set the Stage", the other with the usual Pike goofiness, called "Jumpy the Snail". ~

After Tommy Dorsey passed away in November 1956, trombonist Warren Covington assumed leadership of the Dorsey band, and continued making records for Decca on the LP format. Dorsey's final releases were the long-playing Decca albums In a Sentimental Mood and a sampling of musical comedy hits by Howard Dietz and Arthur Schwartz. Tea for Two Cha Chas, which was Covington's first essay at the helm of the Dorsey group, outsold the earlier albums and achieved enormous popularity as the best-selling Dorsey LP of them all. While this may seem at first like a suspiciously kitschy attempt to cash in on the Caribbean dance trend instigated by Xavier Cugat, Desi Arnaz, and Edmundo Ros, it is clear why the record-buying public responded so well, as the easygoing arrangements and a playlist peppered with familiar airs like "Dinah" and "Dardanella" made it ideal background music for patio barbecues and cocktail parties across the land. Even if the rather stilted vocals on "I Want to Be Happy Cha Cha" sound slightly demented, "Tea for Two Cha Chas" is a fabulous period piece which should be championed as essential equipment for any retro-cocktail gathering. ~ arwulf arwulf, All Music Guide

1956: Tony Scott Quartet ‎ Both Sides of Tony Scott
Artist: Tony Scott Quartet
Album: Both Sides of Tony Scott
Label: RCA
Year: 1956; release : 1998
Format: mp3, bitrate: 320 kbps
Time: 42:02
Size: 108 mb

Records by clarinetist Tony Scott are mostly quite scarce, including this long out-of-print LP. Scott, whose cool tone and boppish solos made him a standout (and an alternative to the rapid playing of Buddy DeFranco) in the 1950s, was always an adventurous player, although his groundings were in bop. This particular album features him with two different pianoless rhythm sections (with Mundell Lowe or Dick Garcia on guitar, Teddy Kotick or Milt Hinton on bass, and Shadow Wilson or Osie Johnson on drums) performing six lyrical ballads (including "Cry Me a River," "Star Dust," and "More Than You Know"), plus two lengthy originals. The latter were freely improvised at the studio, and they are quite unpredictable while being melodic and ultimately logical. An intriguing and well-rounded album, well worth searching for. Hopefully someday RCA will reissue this little-known but valuable music. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

1993: Bill Watrous - A Time For Love - Plays the Music of Johnny Mandel

Label: GNP Crescendo
Year: 1993; release: 2010
Quality: MP3@320 kbps
Size: 115 mb
Total time: 50:27

Bill Watrous has long had one of the prettiest tones of any trombonist, especially in his impressive upper register. It is Watrous' beautiful sound that is emphasized during the nine Johnny Mandel compositions that comprise this CD. Watrous is accompanied by a big band and on some selections a string section but; other than pianist Shelly Berg (who along with Sammy Nestico contributed all of the arrangements), the backup crew is never allowed to rise above its anonymous supportive role. Watrous tries to vary the program a little with the inclusion of some earlier (and hotter) Mandel pieces such as the swinging "Low Life" and "Not Really the Blues" but otherwise this is a ballad showcase, highlighted by "Emily" and "The Shadow of Your Smile."

1961: Sam Cooke - My Kind Of Blues Jazz-Blues, Soul, Soul-Jazz
1961: Sam Cooke - My Kind Of Blues
Artist: Sam Cooke
Album: My Kind Of Blues

Sam Cooke's voice is justifiably legendary, but most of his RCA albums are astonishingly little-known today, and My Kind of Blues explains why this is so, at least in part. The singing is superb throughout, but the repertoire, even in 1961, was not terribly well defined or the recordings well arranged. The basic problem lay in the nature of Cooke's career arc, which probably straddled too many styles and musical worlds for his own good -- the spiritual and the secular, pop and rock & roll, and pop and soul, all as defined in his time (which was, effectively, from the early '50s to the early '60s). The "blues" as a label on an album had a much wider meaning than it would have had at the other end of the decade, or any time since -- Cooke was part of a world where adult pop still held sway and seemed, at least for the LP market, a more attractive target than the teenage or even collegiate audiences of the time. Thus, the "blues" heard here would have been appropriate for a mainstream singer -- say, Sinatra, or Nat King Cole -- circa 1961 (or, really, about 1957 -- Cooke's producers were very conservative) -- rather than what most listeners today would call blues. Brassy, big-scale orchestrations abound, and even the leaner textured songs, such as "Little Girl Blue" and "You're Always on My Mind," rely on a reed or horn section, respectively, to augment the electric guitar, piano, bass, and brushed drums at the core of their arrangements. Some of this works beautifully, as on "Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out," which was a good enough song to make it into Cooke's set at his Copa appearances, and, along with a handful of other tracks here, also onto the compilation The Rhythm and the Blues (and the box set The Man Who Invented Soul). All of this is what would probably be called "smooth blues" (assuming it is defined as blues at all in a modern sense); it's more soul of a pop variety. But Cooke's voice carries it -- even the weakest arrangements and material get elevated, as the best of Cooke's interpretive instincts overcome the worst of his producers' instincts. Given its limitations, My Kind of Blues was never going to be a defining album in Cooke's output, and had he lived past 1964 it almost certainly would have been relegated to his "early period" in a full career. Its strongest moments, of which there are many, stand on their own, however, and the leanest of the arrangements point the way toward greater things that were to come, including the best parts of Mr. Soul and the whole Night Beat album. ~ Bruce Eder, All Music Guide

REPOST with new links

In 1968, having completed a five-year stint with Miles Davis, Ron Carter's career was wide open. Finding himself in typically high demand, the bassist decided not to make any long-term commitments (though he continued to join individual recording dates), opting instead to develop his solo career. In 1971, he released Uptown Conversation (Atlantic). Shortly after, he signed to the CTI label, releasing Blues Farm in 1973. The bass is rarely found in such a prominent role, its melodic qualities typically being subordinate to rhythmic ones. The presence of a pianist, guitarist, and two percussionists on Blues Farm frees Carter to explore both realms. Working with Davis was obviously a valuable experience. On numbers like "Footprints" (from Miles Smiles, 1965), Carter was required to extend and compress time, a technique that is second nature to him on Blues Farm. Dense, dexterous runs are broken up by long, bending lines and shades of blues phrasing, all executed with absolute grace. His playing becomes slightly imposing on "Django." While it's great to hear him lead the group on a tour through the song's shifting rhythms, the accompanists aren't allowed much space. Carter's playing is best when more deeply integrated. On the title track, he engages in a wonderful exchange with flutist Hubert Laws, with the two swapping solos back and forth. On "Hymn for Him," his probing lines enrich the song, pushing its narrative forward. The best comes last as the group rides "R2, M1" to the album's conclusion. The song subsists largely on the group's energy (the most they display outwardly on the album) and Carter's deep, repetitious groove. Unfortunately, great musicianship does not always make for compelling results. Blues Farm's excursions are enjoyable, but somewhat reserved. Both the compositions and performances avoid strong emotions in favor of pleasing palettes of color and texture. The early-'70s production values only enhance this by softening the bed of musical tones. The resulting polish tranquilizes the sound and ultimately dates the album.

Size:157.68 MB

A very talented tenor saxophonist and arranger, Frank Foster was associated with the Count Basie Orchestra off and on from 1953 to 1995. Early on, he played in Detroit with many talented local players and, after a period in the Army (1951-1953), he joined Basie's big band. Well featured on tenor during his Basie years (1953-1964), Foster also contributed plenty of arrangements and such originals as "Down for the Count," "Blues Backstage," and the standard "Shiny Stockings." In the latter half of the 1960s, Foster was a freelance writer. In addition to playing with Elvin Jones (1970-1972) and occasionally with the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra, he led his Loud Minority big band. In 1983, Foster co-led a quintet with Frank Wess and he toured Europe with Jimmy Smith in 1985. Although influenced by John Coltrane in his playing, Foster was able to modify his style when he took over the Count Basie ghost band in 1986, revitalizing it and staying at the helm until 1995. Outside of his Basie dates, Foster led sessions for Vogue, Blue Note (1954 and 1968), Savoy, Argo, Prestige, Mainstream, Denon, Catalyst, Bee Hive, SteepleChase, Pablo, and Concord. Foster suffered a stroke in 2001 that prevented him from playing the saxophone, but he continued to compose and arrange music during the first decade of the new millennium. He died at home in Chesapeake, Virginia in late July 2011; Frank Foster was 82 years old.

Here is another dynamic group led by Dave Pike with a consistent array of tunes primarily set to expose a fusion of jazz ranging from bop through to some samba styled beats. Joined with him again as on "On A Gentle Note" is Ron Eschete on guitar, Luther Hughes on Bass and along with Tom Rainer on keyboards things really start to swing. Rainer turns his hand to Alto on "Groovin' High". A favourite of mine is "Icarus" by Ralph Towner where we get to hear some wonderful bowed Piccolo bass work by Luther Hughes. The use of Musical Box by Ted Hawke on "Swan Lake" adds an interesting intro and exit to the tune. The rhythm section with powerful drumming coming from Ted Hawke and percussion from Don Williams backs Pike's vibes to the tee. The album continues on from the previous delivering this time a broader repertoire of tunes exhibiting the skills of an imaginative and gifted musician and leader.

Some Afro-Latin, some fusion and things in between from vibist Dave Pike. Pike is a good player, but sometimes his arrangements bog down between pop and jazz. His style is more remniscent of Red Norvo, with its lighter, less aggressive and flowing lines.

Tony Mottola and Command Records is a combination you don't disregard easily. If you add perfectionist Enoch Light on the production, then you've got another "must have". Virtuoso Tony Motolla has played all of this album on gut-string guitars. The gut-string guitar is the heart instrument, the pulse, the center, the source. It sets the mood and the tone.
Mottola went on to record over 30 albums on Command and Project 3, more than even the prolific Dick Hyman. Before Light died in 1978, he asked specifically to have Mottola perform at his memorial service. Mottola chose a medley of the Lennon-McCartney song, "Yesterday," and "Yesterdays," the Jerome Kern tune, that he had recorded for Light on the Project 3 album, Superstar Guitar.

Bobby Troup and His Trio is the essence of finger-snapping, head-nodding cool, Its spare, sinuous grooves and smoky atmosphere perfectly capture a larger-than-life era of jazz that grows more distant and more potent with each passing year.

Johnny Griffin recorded this studio album during his first visit to the United States in 15 years. Accompanied by a very supportive trio (pianist Ronnie Mathews, bassist Ray Drummond and drummer Keith Copeland), the great tenor is in frequently exuberant form on such tunes as "Autumn Leaves," his own "A Monk's Dream" and the funky "The Way It Is." Long one of the underrated masters, Johnny Griffin is heard at the peak of his powers on this modern bop session. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

The vastly popular clarinetist and New Orleans stalwart Pete Fountain recorded this album just after the end of his hugely popular two-year stint on Lawrence Welk's Sunday-evening television show. He quit to return to more jazz-based playing. This 1959 quartet album, with Stan Wrightsman on piano, followed Welk's show, with The Blues just behind--and they were both nationwide hits. Long before, Fountain had soaked up the life of New Orleans, the steamy cradle of jazz. The tunes here are evergeens for the first days of jazz associated with New Orleans greats, particularly Louis Armstrong. With unmistakable tone, richness, and poise in his clarinet playing, Fountain enlivens tunes that in lesser hands would encourage hackneyed rehash, with piercing attack, swagger, and clever, fresh arrangements.

AMG Rating: 1993: Clark Terry - What A Wonderful World For Louis & Duke

72-year-old Clark Terry is in exuberant form throughout this very enjoyable disc. On "Duke's Place," ahe constructs a frequently hilarious monologue about a fictional dive, extolling its virtues (mostly food and women) for quite some time without losing momentum or stumbling even once despite the obvious spontaneity. The other selections (tributes to Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong) have many spirited solos from Terry on flugelhorn and wah-wah trombonist Al Grey. The rhythm section is solid and swinging; violinist Lesa Terry (Clark's cousin) is an asset on two numbers. Even if Bob Thiele makes out like a bandit (he is credited with "writing" five of the nine songs, and he and Glenn Osser are listed as co-composers of "For Louis and Duke," a themeless blues), the high spirits and colorful playing of C.T. and Grey make this disc into a delightful hour of joyous music. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide
