Dave Douglas & Keystone - Moonshine (2007) Jazz, Post-bop
Dave Douglas & Keystone - Moonshine (2007)
Artist: Dave Douglas & Keystone
Album: Moonshine
Year: 2007
Label: Greenleaf
Format/Bitrate: mp3, 320kbps
Size: 131MB

Moonshine, the 2007album from trumpeter/composer Dave Douglas' Grammy-nominated band Keystone, is an album that moves musical genres forward into uncharted territory. The evolutionary/revolutionary aspect is found in the vibrant alchemy between Douglas' avant-garde leaning compositions, the relentless, polyrhythmic funk of drummer Gene Lake and bassist Brad Jones, the Sun-Ra-esque sonics of Adam Benjamin who plays a highly modulated Fender Rhodes, the integrated electronic soundscapes of DJ Olive, and the post-post blowing of the front line featuring Douglas and saxophonist Marcus Strickland. Rolling Stone called Keystone's 2005's self titled album, "a modernist requiem." Moonshine takes it a step further: a modernist recipe for the future sound of electronics, jazz, and new composition.

Gianluigi Trovesi - Around Small Fairy Tales 1998
Artist: Gianluigi Trovesi
Album: Around Small Fairy Tales
Year: 1998
Label: Soul Note
Format/Bitrate: mp3, 320kbps
Size: 119Mb

Italian music, even of the pop variety, often references the country's rich orchestral and operatic tradition. Rarely do you find such a fusion as effective and grand as in this "chamber jazz" concoction of Italy's small town saxophonist and clarinetist Gianluigi Trovesi. Every jazz bar follows with an allusion to Baroque or Renaissance forms before returning to something "trad." The effect is wondrous and magical. The prevalence of vibraphone maintains this air of a symphonic spell. Symphonic it is, because while the album is a collection of separate pieces, conductor Bruno Tommaso scores the entire opus for conceptual continuity. A prevalence of strings and a beautifully understated participation from the jazz percussion (a knockdown exception is royal rhythms of "Dance for a King") give Tales an airy, free, and lighthearted feel. Nembro is the name of that small town that Trovesi is from, and his daughter and son-in-law play in its Chamber Orchestra, chosen for use on this recording. The 18-member ensemble is bolstered by Trovesi himself, vibes, a very subtle electric bass, drums, and percussion for jazz flavoring of this exquisitely arranged meeting of Western Society's two most intellectual musics. Liner notes to this album are in Italian and English. Review by Tom Schulte

REPOST with a new MP3@320 link from Mr. valparaiso.

QUIET NIGHTS The intimate, romantic album uses Brazil as a musical point of reference, combines it with west coast jazz styles and features three recordings of songs by bossa nova legend Antonio Carlos Jobim Quite Nights reunites Krall with arranger Claus Ogerman for the first time since the multiplatinum
2001 album The Look of Love. The GRAMMY Award winning pianist and vocalist adds Paulinho Da Costa on percussion to her already outstanding quartet of Anthony Wilson (guitar) and Jeff Hamilton (drums).

Oscar Peterson at JATP (1954)Artist: Oscar Peterson
Album: Oscar Peterson at JATP
Label: Verve
Year: 1954
Quality: mp3, 128 kbps
Size: 35.6 MB
Total Time: 34:44

The recording of this album is a good deal less than might have been desired, even for 1954.
There's a annoying feedback problem from the stage microphones, but the excellence of the
performances seemed to make the release of this recordings a must.
We hope you agree.

, !

After the banner years of 1937-1938, Bunny Berigan's output took a serious downturn. Due to his alcoholism and bad management decisions, he had to break up his band and rejoin Tommy Dorsey's group in order to make a living. Berigan did rebound long enough to form his last band, which only survived until he passed away in 1942 at the age of 33. This Classics disc the last of several charting Berigan's career takes in the 1940-1942 last stand, along with a few sides from 1938. While there are some quality songs here, the majority of the disc is disappointing, especially alongside earlier triumphs like "I Can't Get Started" and Berigan's Ellington and Bix Beiderbecke covers. Stalwarts like tenor saxophonist George Auld, drummer Buddy Rich, and trombonist Ray Conniff add some spark, but for the most part the tunes lumber along. Best left for completists. ~ Stephen Cook, AMG

, , .

Singer Laura Fygi is in excellent form on this set of bossa novas. Due to the sweetening of a string section and some safe arrangements, the music is quite accessible, if not too challenging. Fygi's voice is lovely and she could excel in a much more sparse setting in the future if given the opportunity. She is ably assisted by a variety of guests, including appearances by Toots Thielemans, Clark Terry, and singer Michael Franks; the latter contributed two songs and shares a vocal duet with Fygi on "Tell Me All About It." An enjoyable listen.

Silje Nergaard - A Thousand True Stories (2009)

Album: A Thousand True Stories
Label: Columbia
Year: , release 2009
Genre: contemporary jazz
Format Mp3, bitrate: 320 kb/s
Time: 47:21
Size: 109 Mb

I am now finished with the recording and mixing my new album titled, "A Thousand True Stories". It will be released in Norway on February 9th and then Internationally this Autumn. The songs were written during this last year, and were recorded with my steady band and The Metropole Orchesta from Holland with arrangements by Vince Mendoza.I was really inspired while writing these songs, knowing that Mr. Mendoza would be contributing his exquisite fingerprints to the new album with his world renowned arrangement talent.
We also played a concert together in April at the Paradiso in Amsterdam with The Metropole Orchesta where we had the opportunity to play some of the new material. The concert was recorded and posted on FabChannel, which you can see and hear by going into the "Media Gallery" here on this website.
I am very proud of this album, it is very special to me. I walk down a different road with my songs... and there are moments of magic in there that only could be created in such a unique environment with such a great band, fantastic orchestra and such an extraordinarily great arranger, Mr. Vince Mendoza.
I can`t wait to share it with all of you living outside of Norway too - so please be patient!
Best wishes, ~ Silje Nergaard at official site

Label: Sharp Nine

Anthony Wonsey was already one of the top pianists of his generation, but he developed his chops considerably over the five-year stretch since his previous date as a leader. In a trio set with bassist Richie Goods and drummer Tony Reedus, Wonsey delivers a mix of standards, classic jazz compositions, and his delightful originals, making for a well-paced CD.

Album: Take Five Vol. I
Label: BB Records winked
Year: 2009
Format, bitrate: 192 vbr
Time: 59:15
Size: 73,0 Mb

"Take Five" is a classic jazz piece first recorded by the Dave Brubeck Quartet and released on its 1959 album Time Out. It became the first million-selling jazz single on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in 1961, at a time when rock music was in fashion.
Take Five became Brubecks best known and signature tune, although it was composed by Paul Desmond, the group's saxophonist, based on drummer Joe Morellos 5/4 beat. It became famous for its distinctive, catchy saxophone melody and use of an unusual five beat quintuple time, from which its name is derived.
The original single was recorded at Columbia's 30th Street Studios in New York City on June 25, July 1 & August 18, 1959.

Stephane Grappelli - Live 1992Artist: Stephane Grappelli
Album: Live 1992 [Verve]

Label: Verve/Dreyfus
Year: 1992
Release: 2002
Format, bitrate: Mp3, 320 kb/s
Time: 53:02
Size: 121 Mb
AMG Rating: Stephane Grappelli - Live 1992

Stéphane Grappelli was still golden in his later years, and the proof is contained on this delightful concert performance, documented in the spring of 1992 at La Salle De Spectacles in Colombes, France. Teamed with twin electric or acoustic guitarists Marc Fosset and Philip Catherine alongside the virtuoso bassist Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen, Grappelli has a group that can easily inspire him to play his best. The subtle differences between Fosset and Catherine are heard though the stereo separation in the production values, while Pedersen is sheer genius, up in the mix, and on fire with every note or chord. It would be inappropriate to roundly criticize any aspect of Grappelli's work, considering his genius, far advanced harmonics, unique technical approach, and heartfelt passion he always brought to his music. Suffice it to say that this was not even close to being a bad night, or that he phoned in this performance. Starting with the all-time classic "Minor Swing" that he made famous with Django Reinhardt, the quartet jumps into the warm waters of this one, with Pederson dominating the rhythmic pulse. There's nothing trivial or marginal about this great jazz standard. You hear the drawn out notes and aching legato sound of the violin master on Catherine's "Galerie Des Princes" with a plucked second chorus from the others in a nice two-beat frame...

Max Greger - Night Train:Swing & Jazz Forever (2005)Artist: Max Greger
Album: Night Train
Year: 2005
Label: Koch
Format, bitrate: MP3@320 kb/s
Time: 58:54
Size: 136,1 MB(+5% recovery)

German saxophonist and bandleader Max Greger is a popular and well-known musician in Europe with myriad credits to his name, including film and television work. A gift of an accordion as a child first spurred his musical inclinations, and Greger ultimately studied clarinet and saxophone at the Munich Conservatory during the late '30s. Briefly serving in the military toward the end of World War II, Greger began performing with various jazz groups. His postwar work, often in American officers' clubs, ultimately led Greger to form his own sextet around 1948-1949, and later a big band. Performing a mixture of pop, jazz, and swing tunes, Greger had considerable success from the '50s onward, including regular appearances on German television from 1963 to 1977, and helped establish the growing German jazz movement.

Bubu's Rating: *****

This CD finds veteran violinist Stephane Grappelli joined by bassist Niels Pedersen and guitarists Philip Catherine and Larry Coryell for a memorable tribute to Django Reinhardt. Grappelli has recorded many Reinhardt memorial albums through the years but this one is particularly special for both Coryell and Catherine go out of their way to display the unexpected influence that Reinhardt has had on their styles. The guitarists contribute a song apiece and also enjoy playing seven compositions co-written by Django and Grappelli.

Gil Evans - Where Flamingos Fly
Artist: Gil Evans
Album: Where Flamingos Fly
Label: Artists House JP - K26P-6127
Year: 1971
Genre: Jazz
Format, bitrate: mp3@320kbs
Time: ~ 47 min
Size: 114MB

This transitional LP (which has been long out-of-print) features arranger Gil Evans shortly after he decided to put together a permanent big band. Although the music didn't come out until a decade later, it is actually quite worthwhile. Evans is heard at the head of two different (but overlapping) units ranging from ten to fifteen pieces, and he utilizes synthesizers for the first time. The key soloists are tenor saxophonist Billy Harper and Howard Johnson, mostly on baritone, but the emphasis is on Evans's writing, unlike his later live recordings. Most memorable is "Zee Zee," "Hotel Me," "Where Flamingos Fly" and a 17 1/2 minute version of "El Matador." ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide
