Thelonious Monk - The Art Of The Ballad Music » Jazz » BeBop » Post-bop
Thelonious Monk - The Art Of The BalladArtist: Thelonious Monk
Album: The Art Of The Ballad (compilation)
Label: Prestige/Fantasy
Year: 1954 - 1959
Release 1998
Format, bitrate: Mp3, 256 kb/s
Time: 1:10:42
Size: 129 Mb

With a handful of Prestige dates and an ample supply of Riversides to choose from, Fantasy came up with a wide-ranging sampler of Thelonious Monk's idiosyncratic work on ballads, his own and those of others. Monk's angular, stabbing manner is anything but pretty, but he gives a refreshingly sardonic twist to such standards as "I Surrender Dear," "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes," "Mood Indigo" and "Tea for Two." Fantasy mixes up the formats throughout, with lots of solo Monk, combos ranging from a drumless trio on "Monk's Mood" to a septet on "Crepuscule with Nellie." The set is bracketed by two versions of "Ruby, My Dear," recorded within months of each other in 1957, but with Coleman Hawkins manning the tenor on one version and John Coltrane on the other — both eloquently — one can easily excuse the duplication. Everything here has long been out on CD, and there are understandably no hard swingers, but in all, this is not a bad introduction to what is often considered Monk's best period.

Red Garland with Ron Carter & Philly Joe Jones - Crossings Music » Jazz » BeBop » Hard-bop
Red Garland with Ron Carter & Philly Joe Jones - CrossingsArtist: Red Garland with Ron Carter & Philly Joe Jones
Album: Crossing
Label: Galaxy/OJC
Year: 1977
Release 1991
Format, bitrate: Mp3, 320 kb/s
Time: 39:36
Size: 94,6 Mb (complete covers)
Bubu's Rating: Red Garland with Ron Carter & Philly Joe Jones - Crossings

Amazingly enough, this set (reissued on CD) was the first time that pianist Red Garland and drummer Philly Joe Jones recorded together in a trio setting, even though they had both been a part of Miles Davis' first classic quintet. With bassist Ron Carter completing the group, they perform five standards and the bassist's "Railoroad Crossing." This is one of Garland's best later dates (Philly Joe often pushes him), and the highlights include "Solar," "Oleo" and "Love for Sale."

Pat Metheny Group - Trio 99-00Artist: Pat Metheny
Album: [b]Trio 99-00

Label: Warner
Year: 2000
Format, bitrate: Lossless, FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers
Size: 394 MB
AMG Rating Pat Metheny Group - Trio 99-00

Mixing up his pitches just to keep his fans off balance as always, Metheny returns to the strict jazz-guitar trio format for the first time in a decade, in league with a couple of combative, unintimidated partners. At the age of 45, Metheny leaves no doubt that he has become a masterful jazz player, thoroughly at home with even the most convoluted bebop licks ("What Do You Want?") yet still as open as ever to ideas outside the narrow mainstream, as illustrated in the country-western-tinged phrasing on "The Sun in Montreal." Bassist Larry Grenadier propels his own voice prominently into the texture, even when walking the fours, and drummer Bill Stewart does not hesitate to go against the grain of Metheny's ideas. There is a slow, almost bossa nova-like take on "Giant Steps" that works unexpectedly well; it actually becomes a lyrical, gliding thing. Bye Bye Birdie's "Got a Lot of Livin' to Do" gets a rare contemporary cover, and why not? it's a good tune that holds up, even when fractured as creatively as it is here. There are also a few songs on acoustic guitar that sound like embryonic soundtrack material: "Just Like the Day," "We Had a Sister," and "Travels," the latter being Metheny's first studio recording of a tune that was recorded live 17 years before. Metheny's brigade of jazz buffs will savor this.

Bill Chase - ChaseArtist: Bill Chase
Album: Chase
Label: One Way Records Inc
Year: 1971
Format, bitrate: Mp3 320 Kbps
Time: 33:14
Size: 67 MB

1971 Chase - Nominated for a Grammy Award.

Chase's self-titled LP was as close to unabashed critical success as the group ever got, coming out just as Chicago and Blood, Sweat, & Tears were both at their respective peaks of popularity. There's not much here that sounds like either band -- Chase had a leaner, livelier sound, with an especially frantic rhythm section. The music is heavily white soul-influenced, dressed up in strong contrapuntal figures, soaring riffs, and riveting climaxes, which may come just a little too often given the relatively modest length of the album. The record is chock-full of enjoyable moments and one unabashed hit ("Get It On"), and loaded with virtuoso playing. Lead singer Terry Richards and backing vocalists Ted Piercefield and Jerry Van Blair (who also play trumpets) are strong but not overbearing singers, and a good balance is struck between the vocalists and the band, which was a problem that Blood, Sweat, & Tears never did solve -- the result is a record that's sort of a rock-influenced descendant of Stan Kenton's more experimental work of the late '40s and early '50s, which slotted in well with the progressive side of jazz-rock in 1971. "Invitation to a River," at 14 minutes and divided into five parts, may seem like the height of pretentiousness, but in 1971 audiences devoured it, and the playing, including what sound like 16th notes on the trumpets, is something to marvel at in a popular context. The CD reissue even reprints Nat Hentoff's original liner notes.

Terence Blanchard - Wandering Moon Jazz, Mainstream
Terence Blanchard - Wandering MoonArtist: Terence Blanchard
Album: Wandering Moon
Label: Sony Classical
Year: 2000
Format, bitrate: Lossless, FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers
Size:440 MB

Jazz trumpeter Terence Blanchard has quite the resume: he played in Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers in the 1980s and composed music for some of director Spike Lee's films. Blanchard is fairly unique: a relatively young (born 1962) jazz player, he achieves a rare balance between loyalty to the Jazz Tradition (swing, melodicism) and the pack of players who, without necessarily being "avant-garde," want to push at the boundaries (think Joe Henderson, Woody Shaw, Andrew Hill).
Sonny Stitt - Blues for Duke\ Jazz, BeBop
Sonny Stitt - Blues for Duke\Artist: Sonny Stitt
Album: Blues for Duke
Label: Muse
Year: 1975
Format/Rate: MP3/320
Size: 84 MB

LP-Rip of this wonderful Hommage to Duke Ellington. Very rare MUSE-LP!

Sonny Stitt (on tenor exclusively except for an alto feature on "I Got It Bad") pays tribute to the recently departed Duke Ellington with renditions of five songs associated with Ellington, plus Stitt's title cut. The rhythm section (pianist Barry Harris, bassist Sam Jones and drummer Billy Higgins) is excellent, and although the results are somewhat predictable (with "C Jam Blues" and "Perdido" being the high points), the music on this LP can be enjoyed by bop fans.
