Dana Gillespie - Blues It UpArtist: Dana Gillespie
Album: Blues It Up
Label: ACE
Year: 1990
Format, bitrate: mp3, 320 kbps
Size: 157 mb



Dana Gillespie.

Vocalist Dana Gillespie's first album was released when she was only 15. Over the next four decades, as a strong presence in the world of music, she was part of the recording of around 40 albums. In the beginning of her career in the '60s, she sang folk tunes. At some point in the '70s, she moved on to rock. By the '80s she turned her attention fully to something that was one of her first loves: the blues. In between all of that recording, Gillespie the actress stayed in the spotlight on the theater stage in shows like Jesus Christ Superstar, and in films like The Hound of the Baskervilles...

Steve Lacy - Scratching The Seventies/DreamsSteve Lacy - Scratching The Seventies/Dreams

The three-CD box set that makes up Scratching the Seventies/Dreams represents Steve Lacy's first expatriate records in Paris beginning with sessions in June of 1969 and concluding in 1977 with six of the seven members of the Steve Lacy Septet (pianist Bobby Few was not yet on board). Here, five complete albums tell the story of that decade in the musical aesthetic of Steve Lacy's development as an artist as well as a composer and bandleader. From disc one we are allowed to revisit Lacy as a solo performer on Lapis from 1971. Here Taoism's mighty influence holds sway over Lacy's playing and improvising. From the late-'60s avant-gardism he so deeply enmeshed himself in comes a different topical discussion on the horn. Here, pieces that became ensemble standards in later years, like "The Way," "Existence," and "Rain," had their first hearing as solo works. Lacy's non-reliance for perhaps the only time in his professional career on the music of Thelonious Monk and Herbie Nichols for inspiration is readily apparent. He's digging his own ground here not totally separate from the blues, but seriously extrapolated upon are its themes; they are abstracted into elongated statements on tonality, breath, and melodic invention. The rest of disc one is devoted to Scraps from 1974. Here Lacy teams with Irene Aebi, Steve Potts, and Kent Carter in early settings for the sextet that also included flutist and percussionist Kenneth Tyler and pianist Michael Smith. The signature tunes here are the extreme high-register bleats of "The Wire," and the angular turnaround blues motifs in "Ladies," both of which would be staples of the band's live sets for years to come...
Tadd Dameron and his Orchestra - Fontainebleau Music » Jazz » BeBop » Post-bop
Tadd Dameron and his Orchestra - FontainebleauArtist: Tadd Dameron
Album: Fontainebleau
Label: Prestige
Year: 1956
Release: 1991
Format, bitrate: Mp3 – 160 mono (original recording mono)
Time: 31:07
Size: 35.10 Mb.
AMG Rating: Tadd Dameron and his Orchestra - Fontainebleau


Pianist-composer-arranger Tadd Dameron led relatively few sessions in his career, making the half-hour of music on this CD reissue quite valuable. Dameron performs five of his originals (best-known are the complex "Fontainebleau" and "The Scene Is Clean") with an octet comprised of trumpeter Kenny Dorham, trombonist Henry Coker, altoist Sahib Shihab, tenor saxophonist Joe Alexander, baritonist Cecil Payne, bassist John Simmons, drummer Shadow Wilson and the leader's sparse piano. As is usual with most Dameron dates, the emphasis is on his inventive arrangements although there is space (most notably on the 11-minute blues "Bula-Beige") for individual solos. Recommended.

Year: 1944

AMG Rating: Duke Ellington - Carnegie Hall Concerts, December 1944



The Ellington orchestra was undergoing some personnel (and personality) changes during this era, none of it unexciting. This Carnegie Hall concert (available on two CDs) introduced Ellington's "Perfume Suite," and includes a half-hour series of selections from "Black, Brown and Beige," but also in the shorter pieces shows the impact of tenorman Al Sears and high-note wizard Cat Anderson on the band's sound, making it a more potentially boisterous and extroverted ensemble. Lots of great moments from this brilliant orchestra occured during this concert.

This LP reissues material formerly on LPs restoring several of the selections that were originally issued in edited form. A pair of unusual jam sessions, on the first (and more eccentric of the two) trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie is paired with baritonist Pepper Adams, pianist Chick Corea, bassist Richard Davis, either Mel Lewis or Elvin Jones on drums and violinist Ray Nance (who is in particularly adventurous form).

Steve Lacy Quartet - RevenueSteve Lacy Quartet - Revenue

In this album's liner notes, Lacy explains that his quartet began as a streamlined version of his sextet, designed to play venues that can't afford the larger band. It certainly became much more than that; it might be posited that the quartet is the more conventionally jazz-like of the two bands. With vocalist/cellist Irene Aebi and pianist Bobby Few added, Lacy's tunes take on a bit more classical, "new music" air. The quartet, however, is a more rough-and-ready outfit, with the interplay between Lacy and fellow saxophonist Steve Potts taking on more importance. The two play extraordinarily well together. Lacy is a much more suave player than Potts, whose work has a sort of awkward, ungainly air, but whose playing is as devoid of contrivance as any improviser one could name. Bassist Jean-Jacques Avenel is a fine, hard-swinging, unfussy player with a clean technique, and drummer John Betsch is the tasteful, energetic, well-rounded percussionist Lacy's music requires. The band is refined in the best sense — the tunes are intricate, the execution clean — yet capable of generating great force. Intensity is a given, even in the quietest, most introspective sections. Much was made in the early '90s (when this record was made) of the jazz tradition. This music is a fine example of what happens when a visionary musician makes something extending and expanding upon the tradition his life's work. An excellent disc.

REPOST with a new link from Mr. SYMjet

This LP, re-released in 2000 and whose contents have been reissued in different sets on CD, features John Coltrane in two different settings. "Vigil" and the spiritual ballad "Welcome" showcase tenor saxophonist Coltrane with his classic quartet (pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Jimmy Garrison, and drummer Elvin Jones) in June 1965. Dating from October 14, 1965, it adds tenor saxophonist Pharoah Sanders, Donald Garrett on bass clarinet and second bass, second drummer Frank Butler, and percussionist-vocalist Juno Lewis to the quartet and is a bit of an oddity. Lewis' chanting and colorful percussion make this a unique if not essential entry in Coltrane's discography.

WHEN I WAS A STUDENT AT UVM IN BURLINGTON, VT, CIRCA 1959, I PURCHASED THIS VINYL ALBUM AT A SMALL RECORD STORE THERE. THE MUSIC WAS DIFFERENT FROM ANY OF THE JAZZ RECORDS I OWNED AND I CAME TO LOVE THIS ALBUM AND THE WHOLE CHICO HAMILTON EXPERIENCE. IN ABOUT 2003 I PURCHASED THE MOSAIC CD COLLECTION OF "THE COMPLETE PACIFIC JAZZ RECORDINGS OF THE CHICO HAMILTON QUINTET" WHICH CONTAINED ALL THE TUNES ON THIS CD BUT INTERSPERSED SOMEWHAT WILLY-NILLY THROUGHOUT THIS SIX CD SET. THEN, SEVERAL WEEKS AGO I SAW THAT OLD FAMILIAR COVER OF THE "CHICO HAMILTON QUINTET IN HI FI" ON [...] AND IT STIRRED LOTS OF FOND MEMORIES SO I ORDERED IT. IT WAS WONDERFUL TO HEAR THOSE OLD FAMILIAR TUNES IN THEIR SO FAMILIAR ORDER, IN SUCH AMAZING CLARITY AND BRILLIANCE, COMPARED TO MY OLD VINYL RECORDING WHICH HAD SEEN BETTER DAYS. THIS IS A FABULOUS CD. IT IS THE ESSENCE OF WHAT CHICO HAMILTON'S MUSIC IS ALL ABOUT. BUY THIS CD AND YOU WILL BE A FAN OF THIS FINE MUSICIAN FOR LIFE. THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES.

Time: ~35 min
Size: 81,86 MB (+ covers Front/Back)

Chico Hamilton's earliest bands in a trio setting featured two fine rising stars of jazz guitar in Howard Roberts and Jim Hall. With the always exceptional George Duvivier playing bass throughout, these three-piece bands laid a foundation for many of Hamilton's more famous groups in the '60s that sported sidemen Larry Coryell and Gabor Szabo. There are hints of the hardcore jazz swing and Latin boogaloo amalgam that Hamilton would perfect, but for this compilation of recordings originally for the Pacific Jazz label, you hear his immaculate work on brushes, more prevalent than his sticks, although many tunes combine the two as he switches off. The eight tracks with the refined playing of Roberts moves from a delicate, tasteful version of "Broadway," through the slow, somewhat abstract "Street of Drums," and the ballad "What Is There to Say?" But then the pace picks up with the quick "Nuttye" reinforced by backdrop scat, and the bass led bop-to-funk "Buddy Boo" where Hamilton's developing style is emerging. Rumbling and tribal drums for the late-night "Uganda" buoys the patient guitar of Roberts, while the two minute shortie "Lollypop" is a delicious call and response bopper. As polished as the playing of Roberts is, the sessions with the brilliant Jim Hall are the gems of the set, with all of the compositions penned by Duvivier. "Autumn Landscape" is a bit somber and regretful, while "Porch Light" reads angular la Thelonious Monk with the guitarist stepping up. A unique, fluid, and dynamic voice at this stage of his career, Hall holds sway in a consistent mezzo piano volume for the bop tinged "Blues on the Rocks" before Hamilton's deft solo on brushes, but with the wire flanges plays his tom-toms in ultra melodic and inventive fashion for "Skynned Strings." An entry point recording for Chico Hamilton, it displays his savory good common sense well before being more trend and fashion conscious, as psychedelia and fusion took over commercialized jazz. What needs to be recognized is that Hamilton did not so much assimilate the trends, but modified and adapted his music to the sign of the times and his own unique talents. This CD represents him at a more innocent time when jazz was not so adulterated by more popular forms, and is a fine West Coast style time capsule for the era.

This two-CD set captures one of the milestones in Duke Ellington's long and extremely productive career, highlighted by his monumental suite "Black, Brown and Beige" in the only full-length version ever recorded by his orchestra; soon it was only performed as excerpts. In addition, Ellington's all-star orchestra (including such stylists as trumpeters Rex Stewart, Ray Nance, and Shorty Baker; trombonists Tricky Sam Nanton and Lawrence Brown; and a saxophone section boasting Johnny Hodges, Ben Webster, and Harry Carney) excels on the shorter pieces, a mixture of older and recent compositions. Every serious jazz library should contain this set.
