An Evening with Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock Music » Jazz » Modern Jazz
An Evening with Chick Corea and Herbie HancockArtists: Chick Corea & Herbie Hancock
Album: An Evening with Chick Corea & Herbie Hancock
Label: Polygram Records
Year: 1978
Release: 1988
Format: ape (cue + log)
Time: 71:40
Size: 326Mb

Since Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock had by 1978 spent several years mostly playing electric keyboards, their acoustic duet tour surprised many listeners who thought that they would always specialize in fusion. This double album contains many fine performances including lengthy versions of "Maiden Voyage" and "La Fiesta" but it is the striding by Corea and Hancock on "Liza" that is most unique.

Simone With Romantic Jazz Trio - RomanceArtist: Simone
Album: Romance
Label: Venus Japan
Year: 2004
Format: FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers
Size: 332 MB

An Austrian singer who goes by her first name only, Simone was born in 1982 in a musical family. She started classical piano when she was 8 and began singing professionally at 15. The present album is her third for Venus Records. In this New York recording, Simone was supported by a superb piano trio. John Di Martino is a wonderful pianist from Philadelphia who plays both straight ahead and Latin jazz. Together with drummer Tim Horner, he has recorded several trio albums for the Venus label. George Mraz lends his hands in the bass chair and special guests Houston Person (tenor sax) and Dick Oatts (flute and soprano sax) add texture and color to the proceedings.

Chick Corea & John McLaughlin - Five Peace Band Live In Rome
Artist: Chick Corea & John McLaughlin
Album: Five Peace Band Live In Rome (2CD)
Label: bootleg
Year: 2008
Genre: jazz/fusion
Format Mp3, bitrate: 256 kb/s vbr
Time: 2:13:58
Size: 195 Mb (cover)

This bootleg, taken from a audience recording, presents the ill fated project "Five Peace Band" at the beginning of their world tour, right after the finish of Return To Forever reunion second leg tour. The setlist is slightly different from the original live release in 2009. Although the repertoire is not so polished, due to the lack of rehearsal time, and the sound has it's problems, the great advantage of this take is the fact that we can hear the concert in it's entirety, no cuts, and especially Corea in good mood can be heard making beautiful comments in betweens.
Over two hours of excellent Jazz/Fusion with jazz icons Chick Corea and John McLaughlin and their Five Peace Band. Thank you Dr. Fusion - Bubu Hans
Dave Grusin - Two for the Road: The Music of Henry Mancini Music » Jazz » Mainstream
Dave Grusin - Two for the Road: The Music of Henry ManciniArtist: Dave Grusin
Album: Two for the Road: The Music of Henry Mancini
Label: GRP
Year: 1996
Format, bitrate: mp3,320
Time: 47.41
Size: 94.05mB

Dave Grusin's tribute to Henry Mancini starts out quite strong, with a few fine examples of Grusin's piano playing (particularly "Peter Gunn" and "Mr. Lucky"). Unfortunately, as the set progresses, the music gets more and more routine and closer to easy listening. Grusin is joined by bassist John Patitucci and drummer Harvey Mason, singer Diana Krall does fine on two lazy ballads, a horn section (including trombonist Andy Martin) is heard on two songs, and the obscure harmonica player Tollak Ollestad (sounding like Toots Thielemans) has a pair of appearances. The use of overdubbed strings on some numbers weighs down the set, and what could have been something special ends up being pleasing but predictable.

Candy Dulfer - Funked Up & Chilled Out Rhythm-n-Blues, Smooth & Lounge, Funk-Jazz
Candy Dulfer - Funked Up & Chilled OutArtist: Candy Dulfer
Album: Funked Up & Chilled Out
Year: 2009
Format. bitrate: Mp3, VBR
Time: 87:47 min
Size: 125 Mb

Deluxe two CD edition of the Dutch alto-saxophonist's 2009 album shows two sides of Candy; the energetic stage persona and intimate seductress. Disc One is Funked Up (also available separately), the follow-up to Candy's successful Candy Store album. The album is filled with the Funk and R&B that she injects into her live performances but seldom brings into the studio. Disc Two, Chilled Out, contains relaxed, mellow grooves for those late night hours, inspired by the music that Candy and producer Thomas Bank composed for the soundtrack the wine documentary 'Kissed By The Grape'.

John Coltrain - The Complete 1961 Village Vanguard RecordingsArtist: John Coltrane
Album: The Complete 1961 Village Vanguard Recordings (4 CD BOX)
Year: 1961
Release: 1997
Format, bitrate: mp3, 320 kbps
Time: 4h.30min.
Size: 617 MB

Coltrane had only recently moved to the Impulse label when producer Bob Thiele decided to set up recording equipment for performances at the Village Vanguard in November 1961. It was a crucial period in Coltrane's artistic development, as his music assumed apocalyptic power and controversy swirled around his expanded band and marathon performances. The band ranges from a trio with bass and drums for the extended tenor workouts like "Impressions" and "Chasin' the Trane"; to an octet on some versions of "India," where Coltrane's soprano swirls through the throbbing drones and percussion. Among the sidemen are the multireed player Eric Dolphy and drummer Elvin Jones, Coltrane's most inspiring partners, while guests include Ahmed Abdul-Malik on tamboura and Garvin Bushell, a veteran of Jelly Roll Morton's bands, on contra-bassoon. There are more than four hours of music here, with multiple versions of core repertoire and almost every instant packed with passion and invention. These are among the greatest recordings of Coltrane's career.

Gabriela Anders - Wanting Vocal Jazz, Smooth & Lounge
Gabriela Anders - WantingArtist: Gabriela Anders
Title Of Album: Wanting
Year: 1998
Label: Warner Bros / Wea
Format, bitrate: MP3, 128 - 320 kbps
Size: 120 MB

Gabriela Anders (born in Buenos Aires) is an Argentine singer and pianist, specializing in soul, jazz and Latin. Her debut album was Wanting from 1998, including tracks as You Know What Its Like, Wanting and Ill Be Loving You. Subsequent albums are Latina and Eclectica, both from 2003 and Last Tango In Rio from 2004.
Most tracks are sung in English, with many sung in her native Spanish. In 2004 she married jazz fusion guitarist Wayne Krantz.
Bessie Smith - The Complete Recordings, Vol. 2 Blues, Blues woman
Bessie Smith - The Complete Recordings, Vol. 2Artist: Bessie Smith
Album: The Complete Recordings, Vol. 2
Label: Columbia
Year: 1924
Release: 1991
Format, bitrate: Mp3, 320 kbps.
Time: 62:06 + 59:09 min.
Size: 254 MB (+ covers)

Bessie Smith, even on the evidence of her earliest recordings, well deserved the title "Empress of the Blues" for in the 1920s there was no one in her league for emotional intensity, honest blues feeling, and power. The second of five volumes (the first four are two-CD sets) finds her accompaniment improving rapidly with such sympathetic sidemen as trombonist Charlie Green, cornetist Joe Smith, and clarinetist Buster Bailey often helping her out. However, they are overshadowed by Louis Armstrong, whose two sessions with Smith (nine songs in all) fall into the time period of this second set; particularly classic are their versions of "St. Louis Blues," "Careless Love Blues," and "I Ain't Goin' to Play Second Fiddle." Other gems on this essential set include "Cake Walkin' Babies From Home," "The Yellow Dog Blues," and "At the Christmas Ball."

AMG Rating: Enrico Rava & Paolo Fresu - Shades Of Chet

REPOST with new links for lossless from Mr. jasapaal

This hugely popular trumpet player (born in Trieste, 1939) almost single-handedly brought Italian jazz to international attention. He began playing Dixieland trombone in Turin, but after hearing Miles Davis, switched instruments and embraced the modern style. Other key meetings were with Gato Barbieri, with whom he recorded movie soundtracks in 1962, and with Chet Baker. Right after, he began to play with Steve Lacy; he also teamed up with South African expatriates Louis Moholo and John Dyani and recorded The Forest and the Zoo (ESP) live in Argentina. In 1967 he moved to New York, playing with Roswell Rudd, Marion Brown, Rashied Ali, Cecil Taylor, and Charlie Haden. In a brief return to Europe, Rava recorded with Lee Konitz (Stereokonitz, RCA) and Manfred Schoof (European Echoes, FMP).
From 1969 to 1976, he was back in New York, recording Escalator Over the Hill with Carla Bley's Jazz Composers' Orchestra (JCOA). After his first album as a leader, Il Giro del Giorno in 80 Mondi (Black Saint), he's been leading his own pianoless quartets/quintets. His recorded output numbers 100 records, 30 as a leader.
ECM has reissued some of his essential recordings of the '70s, like The Pilgrim and the Stars, The Plot, and E. R. Quartet, while Soul Note and Label Bleu published CDs by his innovative Electric Five (in reality a sextet, he always excludes himself from the count) which includes two electric guitars. With keyboard-master Franco D'Andrea and trumpeter Paolo Fresu, Rava recorded Bix and Pop (Philology) and Shades of Chet, tributes to Bix Beiderbecke and Armstrong, and to Chet Baker, respectively. Also of note are Rava, L'Opera Va and Carmen, gorgeous readings of opera arias. In 2001 he created a new quintet with young talents Gianluca Petrella, Stefano Bollani, Rosario Bonaccorso, and Roberto Gatto, and toured with old-friends Roswell Rudd and Gato Barbieri.

(14 1904, — 4 1993, ) — - , .

Throughout his long career, Art Hodes was a fighter for traditional jazz, whether through his distinctive piano playing, his writings (which included many articles and liner notes), or his work on radio and educational television. Renowned for the feeling he put into blues, Hodes was particularly effective on up-tempo tunes, where his on-the-beat chordings from his left hand could be quite exciting. Born in Russia, he came to America with his family when he was six months old and grew up in Chicago. Hodes had the opportunity to witness Chicago jazz during its prime years in the 1920s, and he learned from other pianists. In 1928, he made his recording debut with Wingy Manone, but spent most of the 1930s in obscurity in Chicago until he moved to New York in 1938. He played with Joe Marsala and Mezz Mezzrow before forming his own band in 1941. Hodes recorded for Solo Art, his Jazz Record label, Signature, Decca, and Black & White during 1939-1942, but he made more of an impression with his heated Dixieland recordings for Blue Note during 1944-1945 (all of which have been reissued on a Mosaic box set). During 1943-1947, Hodes edited the important magazine the Jazz Record, had a radio show, and became involved in the moldy fig versus bebop wars with Leonard Feather and Barry Ulanov; jazz on a whole lost to the latter. In 1950, he returned to Chicago, where he remained active locally and made occasional records. Hodes hosted a television series, Jazz Alley, for a time in the 1960s, wrote for Downbeat, and was a jazz educator. Art Hodes recorded frequently during the 1970s and '80s, and was widely recognized as one of the last survivors of Chicago jazz. His later recordings were for such labels as Audiophile, Jazzology, Delmark, Storyville, Euphonic, Muse, Parkwood, Candid, and Music & Arts.

Laws & Jones & Corea - Blanchard / Telemann Music » Jazz » Fusion
Laws & Jones & Corea - Blanchard / TelemannArtist: Hubert Laws, Quincy Jones, Chick Corea
Album: Blanchard: New Earth Sonata/Telemann: Suite in A Minor
Label: CBS Masterworks
Release: 1990
Format, bitrate: Mp3, 192 kbps
Time: 46:46
Size: 66,1 Mb
Bubu's Rating: Laws & Jones & Corea - Blanchard / Telemann

Although on the cover Hubert Laws, Quincy Jones & Chick Corea are credited with the same importance, actually this is a Hubert Laws album.
This collaboration between flautist Hubert Laws, producer and bandleader Quincy Jones and pianist Chick Corea concentrates on two neoclassical works and a traditional song. The result is a beautiful journey in a lyrical and colorful introspective musical world.
Sylvia Syms - For Once In My Life Music » Jazz » Vocal Jazz
Sylvia Syms - For Once In My LifeArtist: Sylvia Syms
Album: For Once In My Life
Label: OJC/Prestige
Year: 1967
Format, bitrate: 320 Kbp/s
Time: 31:00
Size: 79MB

Sylvia Syms is more of a cabaret singer than a jazz vocalist. Backed on this CD reissue either by a potentially funky quintet led by organist Johnny "Hammond" Smith or a group that includes flutist Jerome Richardson and both Bucky Pizzarelli and Gene Bertoncini on guitars, Syms unfortunately picked out some instantly dated material (including "For Once in My Life," "Yesterday" and "I Will Wait for You") and does little to uplift the songs. The renditions are mostly pretty brief and instantly forgettable. Not one of Sylvia Syms' more significant sets.

The Chick Corea New Trio - Past, Present & FuturesArtist: The Chick Corea New Trio
Album: Past, Present & Futures
Label: Stretch

Format, bitrate: Mp3, 320 kb/s
Time: 1:09:43
Size: 165 Mb (complete covers)
AMG Rating: The Chick Corea New Trio - Past, Present & Futures

In their first offering of recorded music as a trio, the Chick Corea New Trio has masterfully interpreted ten excellent, original compositions written by Chick Corea and one jazz standard written by Thomas "Fats" Waller on their Stretch Records CD titled Past, Present, and Futures. Just as the mind interprets what the ear hears, the trio's mind builds on Corea's meticulous and beautiful inspirations and arrive at concepts that are spiritual, metaphysical, and open-minded. Playing a variety of musical genres and styles including the blues and flamenco, bassist Avishai Cohen and drummer Jeff Ballard provide total agreement for Corea's thematic forms through their unlimited creativity and combination of multiple textures, time signatures, and different tempos. The program opens with "Fingerprints," a tip of the hat to Wayne Shorter's classic "Footprints." Corea uses a 12-bar form in C minor with an unusual harmonic twist for the last four bars, as with Shorter's classic. Ballard is sensational on his drum solo and on his exciting percussive heartbeats. Cohen burns on bass, and presents a fascinating and exciting bass dance that is highly enjoyable. The only standard on the CD is Waller's great "Jitterbug Waltz" one of the first jazz waltzes ever written. Corea's blithe interpretation is a reflection of the past, resurfacing in the present with vastly different results. The colorful composition is further enhanced as both Corea and Cohen artfully dance on their instruments, playing their top-to-bottom command of the scales with the kind of beauty and grace that the waltz form captures so consistently. "Dignity" is also a jazz waltz and is certainly the most beautiful song on the CD. Dedicated to Armando Corea's wife, it is the consummate portrayal of a woman's sensitivity and spirituality, and her reflective, loving, and dignified nature is captured gracefully in Chick Corea's piano melodies. . . .

Album: Late Night Jazz (compilation)
Label: Rebound
Year: 1995
Format, bitrate: Mp3, 320 kb/s
Time: 56:49
Size: 130 Mb
AMG Rating: Late Night Jazz

Rebound Records, not noted for its forays into jazz, has put together an entertaining compilation of cuts from the vaults of the Verve and Mercury labels. The roster of musicians reads like a who's who of jazz from the late '40s through the '60s. A variety of jazz styles are represented as well, from the Stan Getz/Joo Gilberto/Astrud Gilberto bossa nova rendition of "Corcovado" through the big-band-backed rhapsodic alto sax of Charlie Parker on "Night and Day" to Wes Montgomery's 1965 hit "Goin' Out of My Head," with lots of good stuff in between. There's also a nice mix of studio recordings and live performances. One highlight of the compilation is Gerry Mulligan's contemporary extemporization on "Body and Soul" from his album Meets the Saxophonist: Silver Collection. Bill Evans' introspective piano playing is captured in Joe Zawinul's lilting "Midnight Mood." A contrasting pianistic statement is heard from a member of the Art Tatum school with Erroll Garner's "Old Black Magic." More pleasurable listening comes from Clifford Brown's lyrical, string-backed interpretation of "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes," which he recorded in 1955. The album's coda is a chamber orchestra setting for "Autumn Leaves" as performed by the Herbie Mann Nonet. For an almost hour-long exploration of the work of fine musicians from a fertile period of jazz, this bargain-priced album is a good investment.
