Pat Martino - East Music » Jazz » Mainstream
Pat Martino - EastArtist: Pat Martino
Album: East
Year: 1968
label: MFSL/Prestige
Format: mp3@320 + covers
Size: 67 mb

Pat Martinos Guitar Masterpiece! Martinos long, seamless lines are absolutely extraordinary. Most importantly, he knew how to make the music swing! This is truly one of the most essential jazz guitar albums of all time. Martinos lines, phrasing and even tone are so unique to the language of jazz that one is left absolutely speechless – some listening experiences defy the parameters of existing vocabulary. MFSLs GAIN 2 re-mastering is a serious sonic enhancement of this magnificent album. The incredible sonics from the Original Analog Master Tape have been uncovered for the first time! Track highlights include Martinos amazing solo on the Coltrane composition ”Lazy Bird” and the essential jazz standard ”Close Your Eyes.” Not to be missed!
Sarah Vaughan - The Benny Carter Sessions Music » Jazz » Vocal Jazz
Sarah Vaughan - The Benny Carter SessionsArtist: Sarah Vaughan
Album: The Benny Carter Sessions Vol. 2
Label: Roulette Jazz
Year: 1962/63
Time: 41:45
Format: FLAC/LEVEL 8 + covers
Size: (95.78 x 2)+32.3MB

Sarah Vaughan's two Roulette orchestra sessions that featured Benny Carter arrangements (The Explosive Side of Sarah Vaughan and The Lonely Hours) are reissued in full on The Benny Carter Sessions from 1994. The unidentified musicians (which include strings on the second set) are chiefly accompanists behind the frequently miraculous singer. The "explosive" album (which mostly does not live up to its billing) is the better of the two dates with more variety and highlights in songs such as "Honeysuckle Rose," "The Lady's in Love with You," "I Can't Give You Anything but Love" and a spirited "Trolley Song." The later set is more ballad-oriented and less memorable, though it does offer a classic rendition of "Solitude." Throughout, Vaughan is in prime voice, overcoming the weaker material and uplifting the more superior songs. Not essential but Sarah Vaughan fans will enjoy this reissue.

Benny Golson Quartet - Free Music » Jazz » BeBop » Hard-bop
Benny Golson Quartet - Free
Artist - Benny Golson
Album - Free
Label - Argo
Years - 1960/1962
Quality - MP3@320 kbps
Size - 57, 2 mb
Total time - 32:34

This album reissues tenor-saxophonist Benny Golson's excellent of 1962 .Golson's last album as a leader in which he plays in his Don Byas/Lucky Thompson style (he would soon become a fulltime arranger and, by the time he led his next playing date in 1977, Golson's sound was quite a bit different) finds him in top form. Joined by pianist Tommy Flanagan, bassist Ron Carter and drummer Art Taylor, Golson performs two originals, Will Davis' catchy "Sock Cha" and three standards with "Mad About The Boy" and "Just In Time" (during which he sounds a bit like Sonny Rollins) being among the highlights. This album is recommended.

Evidence - Live la Casa Music » Jazz » BeBop » Hard-bop
Evidence - Live  la CasaArtist: Evidence
Album: Live la Casa
Label: Ambiances Magnetiques
Year: 2000
Format: m4a
Time: 54:05
Size: 321 Mb (covers)

The trio Evidence has been playing the music of Thelonious Monk on an irregular basis since 1985. Live la Casa is their second release, 15 years after their debut, Evidence: Musique de Thelonious Monk. Evidence's originality resides in the fact that this is an alto saxophone/electric bass/drums trio — no piano. Live la Casa was recorded at La Casa Obscura in Montreal on January 13 and June 17, 1999.
Jean Derome (alto sax), Pierre Cartier (bass), and Pierre Tanguay (drums) take much liberty with Monk's material — a good thing. They revisit classic tunes ("Straight, No Chaser," "Reflections") and unearth forgotten gems (the 1947 "Thelonious"). Tanguay plays with Monk's metric as if he were in the school yard (he's everywhere but on the beat on "Blue Hawk") while Derome relies on split tones to make up for the missing piano clusters that came to be Monk's signature sound. The music radiates from the musicians' pleasure of playing these tunes. Monk fans will be pleased by these fresh interpretations from musicians understanding what the pianist's music was all about. On the other hand, purists will find much to despise on Live la Casa, but then again purists usually stay away from Monk. Their loss.

Billy Cobham - Focused Music » Jazz » Fusion
Billy Cobham - FocusedArtist: Billy Cobham
Album: Focused
Label: Cleopatra
Year: 1999
Format, bitrate: MP3, 192 kbps
Time: 01:12:39
Size: 99,7 MB

This is another fine effort from Cobham, who continues to turn out quality recordings that have gone largely unnoticed by both critics and consumers. Beginning with Incoming, Cobham toned down his thunderous approach in favor of a more controlled and complimentary style. His compositions also reflected consideration for the development of his fellow bandmates. Focused continues this trend with an overwhelming sense of honesty. Joining him are his former band mate Randy Brecker and fellow collaborator drummer/keyboardist Gary Husband. Most of the tunes here are over seven minutes long and allow each member to fully develop their statements. Brecker is particularly stunning on "Nothing Can Hurt Her Now." Gary Husband backs up Cobham's accolades of him as being a thoughtful keyboardist. Carl Orr makes his presence felt as well, proving adept at both jazz and fusion guitar styles. There is also plenty of Cobham here to satisfy his drum following; however, there is a level of maturity and depth here that sets this session apart from his previous efforts.

Pete Jolly - Strike Up The Band Jazz, Cool
Pete Jolly - Strike Up The BandArtist: Pete Jolly
Album: Strike Up The Band
Label: Atlas (JP) LA27-1003
Year: 1980
Format, bitrate: mp3@320kb/s + covers (front/back)
Time: ~45 min
Size: 108,71MB

Pete Jolly lived a double life as studio ace by day and jazz cat by night for over 40 years. A member of the musicians union since his teens, he settled in Los Angeles in his early 20s and became a member of Shorty Rogers' Giants, one of the leading West Coast jazz groups. He also began working as a studio musician in the mid-1950s and decided to divide his energy between the security of studio work and the artistic satisfaction of playing jazz in local clubs in Los Angeles.
Walter Wanderley - Rain Forest (1966) Music » Jazz » Latin » Bossa Nova
Walter Wanderley - Rain Forest (1966)Artist: Walter Wanderley
Album: Rain Forest
Label: Verve
Format: FLAC
Size: 249 MB
Total time: 34:34

The notes for this CD ask, "What issue is more topical than the Brazilian rain forest? So what reissue would be more topical than Walter Wanderley's Rain Forest?" Politically, this may be true, but musically, this collection is anything but topical. From the first tune -- the monster hit "Summer Samba," the listener is catapulted straight back to the '60s when bossa nova was new in the U.S. and everyone wanted a piece of it. Organist Wanderley made a big splash with this CD, which went platinum in two years -- and it does evoke strong water images, like "poolside" and "ice skating rink." The jazzmen are underutilized, since most of the tracks are less than three minutes long and leave little room to stretch out. One exception is the pretty Ferreira/Marconi ballad "Rain," the only track where Wanderley plays piano rather than organ and which features a fine solo by Urbie Green on trombone. On "Beach Samba," Green gets to noodle a bit, but Bucky Pizarelli is heard stating the melody and nothing else. Despite all the sadness implied in the song titles, this CD has a jaunty feel to it and will be best enjoyed by nostalgic fans of that bygone era. -

John Scofield - Grace Under Pressure Jazz, Post-bop, Fusion
John Scofield - Grace Under   PressureArtist: John Scofield
Album: Grace Under Pressure
Year: 1992
Format, bitrate: mp3, 320 kbs
Time: 63:05
Size: 142 MB

John Scofield and Bill Frisell, two of the most distinctive guitarists of the 1990s (they previously fronted Marc Johnson's band Bass Desires,) team up on this quartet date with bassist Charlie Haden and drummer Joey Baron. While Scofield contributed all ten originals, Frisell with his wide variety of sounds and eccentric solos often comes close to stealing the show altogether. Five of the ten numbers add a three-piece brass section for color. The interplay between the two very different yet complementary guitarists is notable.

Lonnie Smith - Turning Point Jazz, Post-bop, Fusion
Lonnie Smith - Turning PointArtist: Lonnie Smith
Album: Turning Point
Label: Blue Note
Year: 1969
Format: FLAC/LEVEL + covers
Time: 36:50
Size: (95.78x2)+18.24MB

Most Blue Note soul-jazz albums from the late '60s went one of three ways: it either was a straight-ahead commercial session, a slightly psychedelic outing, or a funky workout with a vague "Black Power" theme. Dr. Lonnie Smith had followed the latter path with Think!, the predecessor to Turning Point, and there are still remnants of that style on this session, particularly in the opening cover of Don Covay's "See Saw." Nevertheless, Turning Point is a more adventurous affair than Think!, finding Smith -- as well as trumpeter Lee Morgan, trombonist Julian Priester, guitarist Melvin Sparks, tenor saxophonist Bennie Maupin and drummer Leo Morris -- exploring territory that isn't quite free, but is certainly more "out there" than the average soul-jazz session. In particular, Smith's originals "Slow High" and "Turning Point" reach the outer edges of the style, playing with dissonance, complex melodies and expansive sound structures. Despite all these free flourishes, Turning Point remains a soul-jazz record and it has all the trappings of its era -- the take on "Eleanor Rigby" finds the group approximating psychedelia. While the more adventurous elements of Turning Point make for an intriguing listen, the album isn't quite as enjoyable as the harder grooving sessions or the spacier soul-jazz records from the same era. Nevertheless, it's a worthwhile listen.

Philippe Saisse - At World's EdgeArtist: Philippe Saisse
Album: At World's Edge
Label: Koch Records
Year: 2009
Format, bitrate: Mp3, 256 kb/s vbr
Time: 50:42
Size: 70,9
AMG Rating: Philippe Saisse - At World's Edge

REPOST with additional 320 kbps links from Mr. ladykiller!

The French born keyboardist, whose recording career stretched back to the '80s, had been out of the contemporary jazz mainstream and recording mostly in Japan for several years when he scored an unexpected hit in 2006 with his trio rendition of Steely Dan's "Do It Again." Rather than stick to the vibe that broke him through to popular acclaim, on his Koch Records debut the multi-talented artist returns to his trademark global grooving. Celebrating a recent move from New York to Los Angeles, Philippe Saisse reconnected with two old musical mates, drummer Simon Phillips and bassist Pino Palladino, and hooked up with an impressive guest list: hornmen Jeff Beal and Michael Davis; popular urban jazz cats Jeff Golub, Marc Antoine, and Kirk Whalum; percussionist Lenny Castro, and Beninese vocalist Angélique Kidjo, winner of the 2008 Best Contemporary World Music Album Grammy, who co-wrote and performed on Saisse's 1999 African flavored worldbeat/electronic dance hit "La Vie." Kidjo and Saisse pick up where they left off on one of the disc's most explosive tracks, the wild, hypnotic African world jam "Assante Sana," which also features acoustic guitarist and oud player Annas Allaf. Whalum, Braun, and Davis form a powerhouse horn section behind the keyboardist on the exotic, intensely percussive swinging free jazz jam "Roppongi Blues," while Antoine and Beal help create the dreamy and sensuous late night vibe of "Topanga Moon Dance," which was inspired by the location of the friend's house Saisse stayed at before moving his family West. That home belongs to Bill Howell, the grooving inspiration behind the old-school, easy swinging "Billy's Blues" featuring Jason Golley on trumpets and flugelhorn. Saisse balances his pop, rock and funk-infused tracks like the classic rock edged "The Rover," "Monday Afternoon" and the cleverly titled, autobiographical trio jazz opener "From Nowhere to Now Here" with the film score lush "Through Tainted Glass," a piece reminiscent of some of Saisse's early new age-jazz efforts. At World's Edge was one of the most exciting and explosive contemporary jazz sets of 2009.

Gil Evans (13 May 1912 – 20 March 1988) was a jazz musician and an important innovator of big band jazz in the United States as an arranger, composer, bandleader, and pianist. He had a seminal role in the development of cool jazz, modal jazz, free jazz and jazz-rock.

The material on this date falls comfortably within the realm of what the ECM label is famous for; meticulously recorded, lyrical chamber music (and the requisite lush reverb is ever present). In addition to leader Erskine, the playing and writing of English pianist, John Taylor, is featured. Taylor is an excellent technician with considerable harmonic agility; his approach is heavily influenced by Bill Evans via Keith Jarrett. Bassist Palle Danielsson completes a very sympathetic, highly interactive rhythm section. "Evans Above" and "Pure & Simple" are by Taylor, whose writing tends to conjour an English pastoral aesthetic and often has elements of so-called new age piano music, a left hand ostinato for example. To Taylor's credit, however, his compositions never get as predictable as most music in that genre. The same is true of writer Vince Mendoza, whose tunes are also featured on this recording. Taylor and the group are most fluid on the Cole Porter standard, "Everything I Love." Peter Erskine is one of the most versatile and accomplished drummers in modern music. Erskine's only contribution to the session as a writer, "On the Lake," is lovely in its sheer simplicity.

Junko Onishi - Live at the Village VanguardArtist: Junko Onishi
Album: Live at the Village Vanguard
Label: Somethin' Else TOCJ 5570 (1994)
Format: FLAC & MP3@320
Size: 291 MB & 125 MB
Time: 55:33
AMG Rating: Junko Onishi - Live at the Village Vanguard

This is a memorable set. When pianist Junko Onishi performs songs from the likes of Charles Mingus ("So Long Eric"), John Lewis ("Concorde"), and Ornette Coleman ("Congeniality"), she interprets each of the tunes as much as possible within the intent and style of its composer. "So Long Eric," although performed by her trio, gives one the impression at times that several horns are soloing together; in addition, polyrhythms are utilized part of the time, Ornette's "Congeniality" has a strong pulse but fairly free improvising, while "Concorde" sounds both distinguished and full of blues feeling, like John Lewis himself. Onishi's exploration of "Blue Skies" uplifts the warhorse through the use of colorful vamps and an altered melody, she takes the slow ballad "Darn That Dream" as a medium-tempo stomp, and her original, "How Long Has This Been Goin' On," is brooding but not downbeat and swings hard without losing its serious nature. There is not a weak selection in the bunch and the interplay between Onishi, bassist Reginald Veal, and drummer Herlin Riley is quite impressive.
