Cab Calloway And His Orchestra - Get With Cab!

Label - West Wind
Years: 1944-1950, release - 1993
Quality - MP3@320 kbps

Total time - 39:25


Cab Calloway was a legendary fireball of talent, whose infectious "hi-de-hi's," "ho-deho's," scattin', and jivin', in a baritone singing voice rich and vibrant, became the spirited cry of people wanting to be happy. "Every time I make an appearance on the stage to entertain people is a pleasure," Cab once enthused to me. "It's my top point of my life. Every time." He had conquered every branch of show business, from Harlem to Hollywood, so, toward the end of his memorable career which lasted more than 65 years, I asked Cab what the continuing attraction to performing was. "The audiences everywhere," he answered. "I don't care where it is. When I go to entertain people, boom, that's it! I give. That's all there is to that.">>>

McCoy Tyner - Land of Giants (2002)Artist: McCoy Tyner
Album: Land of Giants
Year: rel. 2003; rec. 2002
Label: Telarc
Genre: Post Bop
Format: MP3@320kb/s

Recorded on the heels of a spectacular live date at London's Barbican Hall on July 6, 2002, Land of Giants features an all-star quartet led by '60s icon pianist McCoy Tyner. Showcasing a solid mix of Tyner originals and jazz standards, the group also includes vibist Bobby Hutcherson, bassist Charnett Moffett, and drummer Eric Harland. While the work here is by no means as provocative as the stuff Hutcherson and Tyner produced in their heydays, it nonetheless proves them to be utter masters of the straight-ahead modern jazz idiom and should appeal to longtime fans. by Matt Collar

Ray Brown - I'm Walking
Artist: Ray Brown and His West Coast All-Star Giants
Album: Im Walking
Year: 1990
Label: XRCD
Format, bitrate: MP3@320 kb/s
Time: 50:33
Size: 115,8 MB(+5% recovery)

Brown has to be the best known bass player in jazz, and is certainly one of its most prolific. Stints with Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie and Bud Powell led ultimately to 15 years in the Oscar Peterson Trio, territory he still revisits even now. Instrumental in establishing the MJQ (which he still managed until very recently) Brown has remained prolific long past the point where his contemporaries have retired (in one way or another). This is a 1990 recording, but don't let that put you off. For once the appellation All-Star actually does justice to this band, with only the name of vibes player Ichiro Masuda raising a slightly puzzled frown. But don't worry on that score either. Browns affection for the vibes is well documented through his multiple collaborations with Milt Jackson, and he knows a great player when he hears one. The album features seven Brown compositions amongst its ten tracks including 'Freddie' which bears rather more than a passing resemblance to 'So What' run together with 'Freddie The Freeloader but none the worse for all that. However stand-out track has to be Time After Time' whose extended tempo and sparse arrangement provide the perfect showcase for Brown's pitch perfect playing, with spare a plenty for the rest of the band. Recording is good, but it's the performance that grabs your attention, with a really live feel to the band's playing.

Album: Moonlight in Vermont

Ánother great Sonny Stitt from my collection

A 1977 studio recording apparently released originally in Japan, this session has been showing up with various packagings and often at bargain prices. The world's "most perfect" saxophonist is in fine form and in stellar company, most notably Tony Williams' drums (with Barry Harris' piano and Reggie Workman's bass). If, like me, you have a slight preference for Stitt on alto, you'll appreciate Sonny's decision to limit his playing on tenor to two tunes (both blues in Bb).

Gypsy jazz (also known as "Gypsy Swing") is an idiom often said to have been started by guitarist Jean "Django" Reinhardt in the 1930's. Gypsy jazz, along with traditional Gypsy music, is learned by the passing down of knowledge from older generations. Many Gypsy musicians do not read notated music. It is more common for beginners to spend hours learning and memorizing songs from recordings and gleaning techniques from more experienced players.

REPOST with new links

One of the most exciting groups that pianist/composer Thelonious Monk ever led was his 1958 quartet with tenor saxophonist Johnny Griffin, bassist Ahmed Abdul-Malik, and drummer Roy Haynes. During one night at the Five Spot Cafe they recorded enough music to fill up two CDs; all of the performances are also on Monk's large Riverside box set. In Action, a companion to Misterioso, shows that Griffin was possibly even a more perfect sideman for Monk than John Coltrane had been the year before. Highlights include "Rhythm-A-Ning," "Blue Monk," "Evidence," and "Blues Five Spot." [A Japanese version included bonus tracks.] (included) ~ AMG

AMG rating Terry Gibbs - The Latin Connection

Vibraphonist Terry Gibbs sounds fine on this Latin jazz date, which also includes altoist Frank Morgan, pianist Sonny Bravo, bassist Bobby Rodriguez and three percussionists, including Tito Puente playing timbales on three of the nine numbers. Most of the tunes are bop and swing standards (such as"Scrapple From the Apple," "Groovin' High," "Good Bait" and "Sing, Sing, Sing") and have excellent spots for Gibbs, Morgan and the percussion section. A fine date. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

AMG Rating: Ahmad Jamal - After Fajr

"The brilliance of Jamal's long-term trio is instantly clear - Idris Muhammad plays with such taste and drive, he should be a beacon for young swingsters..."
Down Beat - 4 stars out of 5

Ahmad Jamal leads his long-running trio with electric bassist James Cammack and drummer Idris Muhammad for these 2004 studio sessions. Mixing it up with four standards and five originals, the trio sounds as if they have just completed a several-week tour playing these numbers every night. Jamal begins "I'm Old Fashioned" in a fairly straight-ahead fashion, taking only a few sudden detours near the end of the performance. The old chestnut "Yours Is My Heart Alone" was a favorite of Oscar Peterson during the '60s, yet Jamal finds his own path in this lyrical gem by Franz Lehr. "My Heart Stood Still" is one of the most beloved ballads penned by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart, though the pianist has a bit of fun with it by speeding up the tempo at times (evidently racing, rather than stilling one's heart, though the symbolism is the same for love). Jamal's originals are also delightful. "Swahililand" is full of drama with an infectious undercurrent. His quirky "Topsy Turvy" takes shape slowly with many sudden twists.

REPOST with new link

Guitarist Herb Ellis considers this is his favorite personal album and it is easy to see why. With trumpeter Roy Eldridge and tenor saxophonist Stan Getz contributing contrasting but equally rewarding solos and lots of inspired riffing while bassist Ray Brown and drummer Stan Levey join Ellis in the pianoless rhythm section, these performances have plenty of color and drive. Ellis does indeed stick to the blues during the original eight selections yet there is also a surprising amount of variety. This CD reissue has been augmented by four numbers from 1958 originally recorded for a European soundtrack. Getz, Eldridge, and Coleman Hawkins all have their features but Dizzy Gillespie fares best. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

AMG rating Kronos Quartet - Monk Suite

The Kronos Quartet, a very open-minded classical string quartet, caused a lot of eyebrows to be raised with this unusual set. They perform eight Thelonious Monk compositions and two Duke Ellington pieces that Monk had recorded. All of the notes played by the strings were written out in advance by arranger Tom Darter but the improvising bassist Ron Carter is a major asset on five of the selections which are placed in a "Monk Suite." In addition, the two Ellington numbers have the Kronos Quartet joined by bassist Chuck Israels and drummer Eddie Marshall. Fortunately, the string arrangements are very much in Monk's style, with many of the lines taken directly off of the pianist's recordings. This unique set is worth checking out.

, !

In addition to having a somewhat immodest title, this three-CD set was not actually one single concert but two. That reservation aside, the music on the reissue is often quite special. There is a jam session in the Jazz at the Philharmonic vein with flugelhornist Clark Terry, altoist Benny Carter, the tenors of Zoot Sims and Paul Gonsalves and the Oscar Peterson Trio with the all-stars playing a ballad medley and heated run-throughs of a few familiar standards. In addition the Oscar Peterson Trio has a few features, an aging Coleman Hawkins does what he can on two numbers, Hawk teams up with altoists Benny Carter and Johnny Hodges on "C Jam Blues" and special guest T-Bone Walker sings and plays a couple of blues with assists from C.T., Gonsalves, Hodges and Peterson. But that's not all. The Duke Ellington Orchestra is in prime form performing a great deal of new material plus having guest spots for Sims (along with fellow tenors Gonsalves and Jimmy Hamilton on "Very Tenor"), Oscar Peterson (who gets to lead the band through a unique version of "Take the 'A' Train") and Carter; Johnny Hodges is also well-showcased. Ella Fitgerald completes the memorable set with her usual classy performance (accompanied by The Jimmy Jones Trio and sometimes the Ellington Orchestra), finishing the show with some hot scatting on "Cotton Tail." Maybe this really was "the Greatest Jazz Concert" after all! ~ Scott Yanow, AMG

Bubu's Rating: ****

On the french musicians embarking on the wave of jazz that makes much noise today, we can highlight that Daniel Mille book is a very interesting and enjoyable album between jazz and accordion. The atmospheres are soft and you feel the beach, rain, wind or sun, depending on the tracks, we gently biting the skin ...
The disc also shows an increase in the direction of research. The more we advance in listening, the more we discover the richness and the evolution of the universe de Mille. Or a thousand worlds, rather.
A disc to listen at their leisure as background noise, but that feels good, which allows for a breath of relief in a world where deaf sounds simple things are choked. In short, a large bowl of fresh air!

Pianist Red Garland recorded many sessions during 1955-63 and his distinctive chord voicings and relaxed style was always worth hearing. The wild card on this quartet is Les Spann who had the unusual double of guitar and flute; his flute is a major asset on "Where Are You?" and "The Very Thought of You." Garland (along with bassist Sam Jones and drummer Frank Gant) is in fine form throughout these underplayed standards; highlights include "Sophisticated Swing," "Solar" and "This Can't Be Love."

Originally released for the first time on a 1977 double LP and later reissued on two separate CDs, these performances are up to pianist Red Garland's usual level. Since he was teamed with bassist Paul Chambers, drummer Art Taylor and Ray Barretto on conga, the same lineup used on the Manteca date of two months earlier, the date went unreleased for decades, but in reality, the music is excellent. Highlights include "Lover," "Blues In Mambo," "Estrellita" and "East of the Sun."

AMG Rating: Cal Tjader's Greatest Hits

This CD collection is a great improvement over the original, as it doubles the length of the original ten-track selection with ten more tracks from Cal Tjader's Greatest Hits, Vol. 2. The absence of session dates in the liner notes is an uncharacteristic annoyance, but what you basically need to know is that it's a 20-track distillation of the 26 records Tjader made for Fantasy over a nine-year period in the 1950s and 1960s. It's prime Latin jazz with a cool slant, leading off of course with his greatest moment, "Soul Sauce," and including such favorites as "Mamblues" and Mongo Santamaria's "Afro Blue," as well as covers of tunes from West Side Story. Santamaria, Vince Guaraldi, Willie Bob, Stan Getz, Shelly Manne, Scott LaFaro, and Billy Higgins are the most illustrious of the numerous sidemen found on the collection. Completists should note that one of the tracks from Cal Tjader's Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 ("America") was left off of this anthology for space reasons.

The Golden Gate Quartet - 1941-1947Artist: The Golden Gate Quartet
Album: 1941-1947

Year: 1941 - 1947
Release 2003
Format, bitrate: Mp3, 320 kb/s
Time: 55:26
Size: 128 Mb

Pioneer Virginia gospel/pop quartet of the '30s and '40s. Calling their innovative approach to sacred hymns "jubilee" singing, the Golden Gate Quartet, propelled by Willie Johnson and William Langford, enjoyed massive acceptance far outside the church. Their smooth Mills Brothers-influenced harmonies made the Gates naturals for pop crossover success, and they began recording for Victor in 1937. National radio broadcasts and an appearance on John Hammond's 1938 "Spirituals to Swing" concert at Carnegie Hall made them coast-to-coast favorites. By 1941 the Gates were recording for Columbia minus Langford, and movie appearances were frequent: Star Spangled Rhythm, Hollywood Canteen, and Hit Parade of 1943, to name a few. Some experiments with R&B material didn't pan out during the late '40s, and Johnson defected to the Jubilaires in 1948.
