Curtis Fuller - The Opener Music » Jazz » BeBop » Hard-bop
Curtis Fuller -  The OpenerArtist: Curtis Fuller
Album: The Opener
Label: Blue Note
Year: 1957
Quality: MP3 320 + 5% recovery
Size: 85 Mb
Total time: 0.37:00

The Opener is trombonist Curtis Fuller's first album for Blue Note and it is a thoroughly impressive affair. Working with a quintet featuring tenor saxophonist Hank Mobley, pianist Bobby Timmons, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Art Taylor, Fuller runs through a set of three standards -- "A Lovely Way to Spend an Evening," "Here's to My Lady," "Soon" -- two originals and an Oscar Pettiford-penned calypso. The six songs give Fuller a chance to display his warm, fluid style in all of its variations. "A Lovely Way to Spend an Evening" illustrates that he can be seductive and lyrical on ballads, while the brassy "Hugore" and hard-swinging "Lizzy's Bounce" shows that he can play hard without getting sloppy. His backing musicians are equally impressive; in particular, Mobley's robust playing steals the show. In all, The Opener, along with his three earlier sessions for Prestige and New Jazz, establishes Fuller as one of the most distinctive and original hard bop trombonists of the late '50s. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide

Stan Kenton, June Christy & The Four Freshmen - Road Show (1959)

Recorded with June Christy & Four Freshmen, this is a fine live recording from 1959. June Christy is a bit below par due to a cold on the day of the recording. (Review by Kenneth M. Cassidy)

REPOST! Stan Kenton - a pianist who led a highly innovative, influential, and often controversial American jazz orchestra, was born today December 15!

Archie Shepp - Soul Song (1982)
Artist: Archie Shepp
Album: Soul Song
Format: FLAC & mp3 (320k/s)
Size: 268 & 104 MB (scans)
Label: Enja
Total time: 45:19

This is one of Archie Shepp's more erratic sets. On the 15 1/2 minute "Mama Rose," athe great tenor (who is joined by pianist Ken Werner, bassist Santi Debriano and drummer Marvin "Smitty" Smith) unfortunately plays his out-of-tune soprano and takes an eccentric vocal. Additionally, Werner's brief "Soul Song" tends to wander without much direction. Much better is the 18 1/2 minute "Geechee," a lengthy workout for Shepp's emotional tenor, but due to this release's weak first half, it can be safely passed by. Scott Yanow, AMG
Gil Evans - On Ampex (1969) Music » Jazz » BeBop » Post-bop
Gil Evans - On Ampex (1969)
Artist: Gil Evans
Album: On Ampex
Label: Ampex Japan UPX-32-V
Year: 1969
Genre: Jazz
Format, bitrate: mp3@320 kb/s

Gil Evans is an elusive personality in a world of extroverts. It is hard to interview Gil. Ask him about his music and he becomes shy and non-specific. Talk about someone else and he is suddenly loquacious.
Periodically, since he first attracted attention in the jazz world, Gil Evans has made a statement and then retreated from the stage into a kind of musical hibernation into which he assimilates music and lets it work its way through his system. Then he emerges again with some new contribution.
Right after his Claude Thornhill days when he did his first important arranging, Gil Evans disappeared from the horizon. His statement with the French horns and the lacey saxophone patterns had been soft in texture, but nonetheless, important and certainly long-lasting.
Then with the early cool days, with Miles Davis and Gerry Mulligan, he emerged again, adopted the bop idiom to a middle-sized jazz group, developing more interesting textures of sound and then promptly retreated to hibernate some more. In the 50's, Gil Evans emerged again with Miles Davis, an association that has lasted down to the present time. It has produced a heady list of xtraordinarily beautiful albums including "Miles Ahead," "Sketches of Spain," music for a play which was never recorded and two memorable concerts both with Davis in New York and the University of California.
At that University of California concert (shortly after Gil Evans was awarded a Guggenheim grant for composition) I was struck by the obvious probing of Evans' musical interest into very experimental areas in contemporary music.

Stan Getz Featuring Astrud Gilberto - Getz Au Go Go [LIVE] (1990)
Artist: Stan Getz Featuring Astrud Gilberto
Album: Getz Au Go Go [LIVE]
Label: Polygram Records
Year: 1990 [Original Date:1964]
Genre: Jazz
Format, bitrate: ape+cue+log
Time: 39:09
Size: 98.1 + 78.7 Mb

The sultry, cool vocals of Astrud Gilberto steal the show of this live 1964 set, recorded in Greenwich Village's Cafe Au Go Go. Backed by Gary Burton on the vibes, Gene Cherico on bass, and skinsman Joe Hunt, Getz and crew saunter through "Summertime," "The Singing Song," and "6-Nix-Pix-Flix" (the latter two penned by the then-21-year-old Burton). Of course, nothing comes close to the magic of Gilberto and her breathtaking contributions on "Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars," "It Might as Well Be Spring," and "The Telephone Song." Compared to some of his more adventurous early-'60s recordings (Focus, Mickey One), Getz Au Go-Go--the saxophonist's last bossa nova disc--is an oasis of comforting cool-jazz sounds.

Lester Young - Blue Lester - The Immortal Lester Young

Album - Blue Lester
Label - Savoy/Dennon Records/Nippon Columbia

Basically Young's Savoy Master Takes, Blue Lester finds the svelte tenor innovator on a prime mix of sides from 1944 and 1949. As was the trend of most swing soloists by the mid-'40s, Young heads up a few different extended combos here, featuring the likes of pianist Johnny Guarnieri, trumpeter Jesse Drakes, drummer Cozy Cole, and old Basie bandmates Freddie Green and the Count himself. The numbers with Basie are particularly good, especially "I Don't Stand a Ghost of Chance With You" and "Back Home in Indiana." And for the topper, Young is heard in the company of the entire Basie band (Clyde Hart is on piano, though) for the three tracks that close things out. Not a bad place to start your Lester Young collection. ~ Stephen Cook, All Music Guide

Philipp Stauber Quartett:  Four Colors - One Picture
Artist: Philipp Stauber Quartet
Album: Four Colors - One Picture
Release: 2005
Label: Petit Paquet Records
Bitrate: FLAC/842
Size: 329 MB

The title of the second own CD of the 39-year old guitarist Philipp Stauber is simply understatement, even if it relates to the occupation as a quartet refers. After the debut "Slowfood" of 2001, then still in the trio are now "Four Colors", four colors, in the title, announced that together a whole picture. The Quartet celebrates jazz Although fairly traditional, but much brighter than indicated. The selection of songs testifies to the free flap shy dealing with the Jazz not only bygone times. Between the compositions by Monk ( "Round About Midnight"), Young ( "Stella by starlight") to Carmichael "Georgia on My Mind." as a framework the starting point and as a recapitulation also the end of the panel determines is also a fluent crept own composition ( "Hannah's Blues"). Very oriented song is also in the variety of instrumentation, which sometimes allows a pure trio ( "Stella by starlight ") or even a duo with bass and acoustic guitar, like" Dolphin Dance "by Herbie Hancock. The clean work of all parties is also a good sound rewarded, but not too technical to work. On the contrary: The emotional joy of the game Band leader and his crew, consisting of Henning Sieverts, bass and cello, Bastian Jtte, drums, and Till Martin on saxophone, is particularly apparent in "Maryann" by Ray Charles clear that beyond any doubt about it that jazz and blues are inseparable. ~ Jazzpodium Issue May, 2005
