Erik Truffaz - Bending New Corners (1999) Music » Jazz
Erik Truffaz - Bending New Corners (1999)
Artist: Erik Truffaz
Album: Bending New Corners
Year: 1999
Label: Blue Note
Total time: 53:54
Format: mp3@320Kbps
Size: 139 Mb (covers)

An odd reissue of sorts, Bending New Corners combines tracks off two of trumpeter Erik Truffaz's previous albums. It is unclear why Blue Note felt the need to repackage these tracks yet again; however, here they are and they are worth a listen. Containing tracks from the sessions that produced The Mask and its European version, The Dream, Bending New Corners is a groove-oriented work that draws heavily on late-'60s and early-'70s Miles Davis. To these ends, Truffaz is a forward-thinking improviser with a plangent tone and knack for writing funky, modal compositions. Adding to the hip quotient, rapper Nya guests on a few tracks, delivering a gruff, philosophical vibe that is more G. Love than G Unit. Recorded in 1999, the tracks seem more connected to the post-rock, jazz-rap movements of the '90s; in the post-2000 world they don't feel as cutting edge as Truffaz would probably like them to seem. --AMG

Tony Bennett - Steppin' Out (1993)
Artist: Tony Bennett
Album: Steppin' Out
Label: Columbia
Quality: FLAC
Size: 296 MB
Time: 52:51

Bennett's tribute to songs that Fred Astaire made famous (including standards by Gershwin, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, and Jerome Kern) is as strong a record as anything he has made recently, including the acclaimed Perfectly Frank. --All Music Guide

Tito Puente - Night Beat (1957) Music » Jazz
Tito Puente - Night Beat (1957)
Artist: Tito Puente
Album: Night Beat
Label: RCA
Quality: FLAC
Size: 271 MB
Time: 37:09

Although Tito Puente's name is virtually synonymous with mambo, salsa, and Latin jazz, and the album cover features a young Puente hard at work behind his timbales, NIGHT BEAT bears little relation to Puente's usual sound. Instead, this 1957 outing is almost strictly mainstream big-band material, with dashes of swing and supper-club savoir-fare. The large, hard-driving ensemble possesses a great command of dynamics, moving through delicate passages before roaring into crescendos.

Album: Out of a Dream
Label: Blue Note

Format: mp3@320Kbps
Size: 112 Mb (covers)
Total time: 49:46

With a title like "Out Of A Dream", one would expect this album to be a languid affair, and it doesnt disappoint. Truffaz and his quintet spin one mid-tempo ballad into another, each track a strand of golden sunshine piercing through gray rainclouds.

Erik Truffaz - Mantis

Artist: Erik Truffaz
Album: Mantis
Label - Blue Note
Year: 2001
Format: mp3@320Kbps
Size: 136 Mb (covers)

French trumpeter Erik Truffaz began to gain U.S. recognition via two strong Blue Note discs, The Mask and Revisit. His third stateside release, Mantis, finds him again blending jazz with cutting-edge rhythms associated with drum'n'bass and hip-hop. But this time the lineup has changed, most notably with Manu Codjia's spiky, spacy electric guitar replacing Patrick Muller's Fender Rhodes piano. Double-bassist Michel Benita and drummer Philippe Garcia, also new faces, largely stick to the tripped-out rhythmic language typical of Truffaz's earlier efforts. In addition to the club music element, Truffaz incorporates Arabic influences on "Nina Valeria" and "Magrouni," the former a stark duet with oud player Anouar Brahem and the latter a showstopping feature for Tunisian vocalist Mounir Troudi. In another departure, Codjia switches to acoustic guitar for an especially lyrical duo with the leader called "Yasmina." Here, as well as on the melancholy 7/4 closer "Tahun Bahu," Truffaz seems to be going for a more organic sound, perhaps in part to shake off tiresome comparisons with electric Miles Davis. (Don't miss the hidden bonus track, a riotous instrumental version of "Magrouni.") - AMG
Freddie Roach - Good Move (1963) Jazz, Soul-Jazz
Freddie Roach - Good Move (1963)
Artist: Freddie Roach
Album: Good Move
Year: 1963
Label: Blue Note
Time: 43:02
Format: MP3 @320kbps
Size: 96mb (, with 5% file recovery)
Includes Covers + Scans
AMG Rating: 4 Stars

Laid-back and loosely swinging, Good Move captures organist Freddie Roach near the peak of his form. Roach never leans too heavily on his instrument, preferring a calmer, tasteful attack, yet he is never boring because he has a strong sense of groove. He keeps things moving on slower numbers like Erroll Garner's "Pastel" and Gershwin's "It Ain't Necessarily So," but the true highlights are on originals like "Wine, Wine, Wine" and "On Our Way Up," where the bluesy structures and fluid rhythms give Roach a chance to stretch out. Throughout the record, he is capably supported by guitarist Eddie Wright and drummer Clarence Johnston, as well as trumpeter Blue Mitchell and tenor saxophonist Hank Mobley, who both contribute fine solos. -- AMG

Billie Holiday - Greatest Hits

Artist: Billie Holiday
Album: Greatest Hits
Year: 1998 (Compilation)
Label: Columbia/Legacy
Format, bitrate: MP3@320 kbit/s
Time: 37:52
Size: 82.7MB

Curiously, yet not surprisingly given the enormity of his sway, Billie Holiday's greatest vocal influence was Pops” – Louis Armstrong, whose trumpet was his first signature (though he's often credited with being the first great jazz singer as well). One hears Armstrong in Holiday's sense of phrasing, timing, and the warmth she invests in a lyric. This package, containing such touchstone Holiday renderings as I Cried for You”, Body and Soul”, and When a Woman Loves a Man” (poetic, given the fact that Billie was notoriously unlucky at love), also boasts her signature song, God Bless the Child”. Her accompanists are a hall-of-fame lot, including trumpeters Roy Eldridge and Buck Clayton; saxmen Lester Young (with whom she had a close relationship), Ben Webster, Johnny Hodges, and Harry Carney; drummers Cozy Cole and Jo Jones; bassists John Kirby and Walter Page; and her frequent pianist, Teddy Wilson.” – Willard Jenkins,

Bud Powell - The Essen Jazz Festival Concert (1960)Artist: Bud Powell
Album: The Essen Jazz Festival Concert
Label: 1201 Music
Release Year: 1999
Running Time: 51:14
Format: FLAC
Bitrate: Lossless
Size: 326 MB
Rating: ****

This recording of a one-time concert meeting of Bud Powell, Oscar Pettiford, and Kenny Clarke in 1960 has been reissued many times under different titles and leaders, though master of ceremonies Joachim Berendt actually introduces the group at the beginning of the concert as the Oscar Pettiford Trio. No matter who gets the credit, the trio roars through bop favorites like "Shaw Nuff," "Salt Peanuts," and Powell's own "John's Abbey." Powell, who could be rather inconsistent in live recordings at this point in his life, is flawless. Kenny Clarke's offbeat accents and powerful rhythm help to fuel the fire. Pettiford's fine bass work comes to the forefront in his delicious "Blues in the Closet" (also known as "Collard Greens and Black-Eyed Peas"), while his long solo introduction to "Willow Weep for Me" reminds jazz fans what they lost with his premature death later the same year. For the second half of the concert, grizzled veteran tenor saxophonist Coleman Hawkins is added to the mix. As one of the first swing and classic jazz practitioners to embrace bop, his still-potent sound dominates a brisk take of "All the Things You Are" and he seems especially inspired by his potent rhythm section in "Just You, Just Me." Hawkins' mastery of ballads was never in question, so his lush treatment of "Yesterdays" is a certified gem; his snappy riff tune "Stuffy" closes this well-recorded and highly recommended CD.
