Illinois Jacquet - Birthday Party Music » Soul » Soul-Jazz
Illinois Jacquet - Birthday Party Artist: Illinois Jacquet
Album: Birthday Party
Label: Groove Note
Year: 1999
Format, bitrate: MP3, 128 kbps
Time: 36:00
Size: 35.9 MB

Liscensed directly by Analogue Archive from Mr. Jacquet, this is the first reissue on the Groove Note label. This is the 1st reissue of this title on any format since the album went out of print in 1978. The album was recorded in Japan in 1975. Illinois Jacquet was part of an all star jazz band touring Japan on behalf of Toshiba. Other members of this all star jazz group were Gerry Mulligan, Art Farmer, Roy Haynes and Kenny Burrell.
The band played an outdoor concert in a baseball stadium during which Jacquet agreed and, one warm night after they had finished one of their scheduled concerts, he gathered some of his fellow jazz musicians and bundled them all into a couple of cabs and headed toward the recording studio. That particular day just happened to be Illinois jacquets Birthday so hence the title of the album and the spectacular cut Birthday Party Blues.

Jackie McLean - Right Now! Music » Jazz » BeBop » Hard-bop
Jackie McLean - Right Now!Artist: Jackie Mclean
Album: Right Now!
Label: Blue Note
Year: 1965
Release: 1991
Format, bitrate: MP3, 320 kbps
Time: 48:08
Size: 82,02 mb
AMG Rating: Jackie McLean - Right Now!

With the exception of a beautiful ballad version of Larry Willis's "Poor Eric," the music on this CD (which is also available in Mosaic's four-CD Jackie McLean box set) is hard-charging, intense and fairly free. Altoist McLean was at the peak of his powers during this period and, inspired by the versatile rhythm section (pianist Larry Willis, bassist Bob Cranshaw and drummer Clifford Jarvis), he plays explorative versions of his own "Eco," Willis's "Christel's Time" and Charles Tolliver's "Right Now"; an alternate version of the latter is added on for the CD reissue. This CD offers listeners a particularly strong example of Jackie McLean's unique inside/outside music of the 1960s.

Keith Jarrett – At The Blue Note Music » Jazz » Modern Jazz
Keith Jarrett – At The Blue NoteArtist: Keith Jarrett
Album: At The Blue Note: The Complete Recordings (6cd)
Label: ECM
Year: 1994
Format, bitrate: Mp3, 256 kb/s
Time: 7:3:25
Size: 755 Mb
AMG Rating: Keith Jarrett – At The Blue Note

The six-CD box set Keith Jarrett at the Blue Note fully documents three nights (six complete sets from June 3-5, 1994) by his trio with bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Jack DeJohnette. Never mind that this same group has already had ten separate releases since 1983; this box is still well worth getting. The repertoire emphasizes (but is not exclusively) standards, with such songs as "In Your Own Sweet Way," "Now's the Time," "Oleo," "Days of Wine and Roses," and "My Romance" given colorful and at times surprising explorations. Some of the selections are quite lengthy (including a 26-and-a-half-minute version of "Autumn Leaves") and Jarrett's occasional originals are quite welcome; his 28-and-a-half-minute "Desert Sun" reminds one of the pianist's fully improvised Solo Concerts of the 1970s. Throughout the three nights at the Blue Note, the interplay among the musicians is consistently outstanding. Those listeners concerned about Jarrett's tendency to "sing along" with his piano have little to fear for, other than occasional shouts and sighs, he wisely lets his piano do the talking.

Chick Corea And John McLaughlin - Five Peace Band Live Music, Jazz
Chick Corea And John McLaughlin - Five Peace Band Live Artist: Chick Corea And John McLaughlin
Album: Five Peace Band Live
Label: Concord Records
Year: 2009
Format, bitrate: mp3, 320 kbps
Time: 2h, 19 min
Size: 334 mb.

The masters behind Return to Forever and the Mahavishnu Orchestra are ready to test the limits of electric music again. The double-album Five Peace Band Live captures the band on its European tour, pushing at the edges of plugged-in jazz. International praise for the live show was universal:
”Jazz without compromise, invention without fear.”
—The New Zealand Herald
”The sound was familiar - that irresistible driving funk, capable of rising to ecstatic heights. Everything they played ... was touched with the same magic.”
- The Daily Telegraph (London)
Chick Corea - The Song of Singing Music » Jazz » BeBop » Post-bop
Chick Corea - The Song of SingingArtist: Chick Corea
Album: The Song of Singing [Japan]
Label: Blue Note/Toshiba EMI
Year: 1970
Release: 2004
Format, bitrate: Mp3, 192 kb/s
Time: 1:06:52
Size: 100 Mb (cover)
AMG Rating: Chick Corea - The Song of Singing

This LP features the rhythm section of Circle (pianist Chick Corea, bassist Dave Holland, and drummer Barry Altschul) playing rather advanced improvisations on group originals (highlighted by Holland's "Toy Room") and "Nefertiti." Influenced by the early Art Ensemble of Chicago, this music is rather free and avant-garde, but rewards close listening. [The 2004 Japanese edition contains bonus tracks.]

Bubu's Rating: *****


This was the first original vinyl Traffic record that I managed to put my hands on back in the 70s. Issued as a double album the sound was superb (and it still is) and the graphics were great (the inner sleeve contained a collection of funny traffic signs that unfortunately are missing on any cd release). By this album I learned what a great band Traffic was, with such accomplished musicians. Winwood, well known for his composition and keyboards and unique vocal playing skills is also playing here on guitar. The jazz world door had opened for me...
Enjoy this superb live act and have a pleasant listening.

REPOST with a new link from Ms. zanuda

For many, when you think of early rock & roll, certain images and sounds immediately come to mind -- Chuck Berry strumming his red Gibson while duck-walking, a sweaty Little Richard wailing into the mike, Jerry Lee Lewis bashing the piano, etc. But what's often forgotten is that in rock's dawning moments, horns played a big part in the then-new genre's sound. And Screamin' Jay Hawkins was one of rock's early artists to embrace blaring saxophones -- as well as theatrics. As evidenced by the 1994 release I Shake My Stick at You, Hawkins was rockin' and hollerin' till the very end. Although it's a studio effort (recorded while Hawkins was on tour in Australia a year before the album's release), I Shake My Stick at You manages to capture the energy and looseness of a live gig -- in fact, with the addition of audience cheering, you could be fooled into believing it's a concert recording. Hawkins is at the top of his game on such highlights as the album-opening "Live Love or Die," "Because of You," and the X-rated "Furburger." If you're interested in digging a bit deeper into Hawkins' catalog beyond just "I Put a Spell on You" and perhaps a hits set, I Shake My Stick at You is certainly one of his stronger studio releases (which is quite an accomplishment, considering it appeared this late in Hawkins' career). [This 2007 reissue features alternate cover design and photography.]

Michael Manson - Up Front Music » Jazz » Fusion » Smooth & Lounge
Michael Manson - Up Front Artist: Michael Manson
Album: Up Front
Label: A440 Music Group
Year: 2008
Format, bitrate: MP3, 192 kbps
Time: 1:01:18
Size: 87.89 Mb

The reality of the smooth jazz business in the 2000s has been that great genre veterans and solid emerging artists alike can bounce from label to label as indies open up and are shuttered no matter the number of radio hits. After a number of years as a monster sideman, inventive Chicago bassist Michael Manson struck gold in 2002 with his hit "Outer Drive"; despite solid output since then, he was on his third indie label (Nu Groove) by the time he released the solid Up Front collection in 2008. For fans who have never bought a Manson CD, it serves as a great primer for his strikingly melodic, hardgrooving, and brassdrenched funk style that allows for a lot of virtuoso playing. The opening track and first single helmed by genre hitmaker and saxman Darren Rahn is loaded with vibrant horns, a plucky, infectious, and singable bass melody, and crisp guest shots by George Duke, Lenny Castro, and Paul Jackson, Jr. How could it not be the ultimate in percussive funk? Likewise, the easygroovin...g, laidback, retrosoul vibin' "Steppin' Out" and the sensuous tribute to Manson's wife, Lana ("She's Always There"), featuring Najee, are pictureperfect urban jazz. A fineprint sticker adorning the jewel box explains away the odd mix of the other 12 tracks and addresses the unfortunate realities of the business: because 215 Records folded and his 2006 gem Just Feelin' It hadn't been available for over a year, Manson remastered five tracks from that album just so they wouldn't be forgotten. You can't beat the playful light funk spirit of "Coming Right at Ya" and easy breeze of "It's the Way That She Moves" but still, if you are a fan waiting for a fullscale project, this isn't quite it. Manson follows the lead of many other genre artists in the 2000s by covering a wellknown popsoul song (a nicely rendered "End of the Road") and then reminds his fans where his solo journey began with a laidback "Chicagostyle" take on his biggest hit, "Outer Drive," featuring another Chicagobased smooth jazz great, guitarist Nick Colionne. So, in essence, this label debut is something of a cool "greatesthits" package with a bunch of kickin' new songs. With any luck and Manson surely deserves a few breaks with his new label Nu Groove might stick around long enough for him to follow this with a completely new collection the next time out.

Chick Corea - A.R.C.Artist: Chick Corea
Album: A.R.C.
Label: ECM
Year: 1971
Format, bitrate: Mp3, 256 kb/s vbr
Time: 40:33
Size: 50,5 Mb
AMG Rating: Chick Corea - A.R.C.

This LP features pianist Chick Corea, bassist Dave Holland and drummer Barry Altschul during the brief period that, along with Anthony Braxton, they were members of the fine avant-garde quartet Circle. The music heard on this set is not quite as free as Circle's but often very explorative. Four of the six songs are Corea originals which, in addition to Holland's "Vedana" and Wayne Shorter's "Nefertiti," form a very viable set of adventurous jazz, recorded just a few months before Corea changed direction.

With Jan Garbarek (saxes), Nana (per), Daniel Goyone (k). This is a septet doing Indian, Turkish, Scandinavian, and Brazilian world fusion, which is very well conceived. One of Garbarek's better efforts as collaborator or leader.

Format, bitrate: MP3, 320 kbps
Time: 58:31

A fine post-bop improviser and alto saxman, Jim Snidero is a bit underrated but is well-appreciated by his fellow musicians. He attended the University of North Texas and moved to New York in 1981. Snidero toured and recorded with Jack McDuff, he's been a member of the Toshiko Akiyoshi Jazz Orchestra since the mid-'80s, has worked with the backup bands of Frank Sinatra and Eddie Palmieri, and has spent time playing with the Frank Wess Sextet, the Mel Lewis Orchestra, and the Mingus Big Band. As a leader, Jim Snidero has recorded for the Japanese East World label (1984), Ken, Square Discs, Red, and Criss Cross. He has also recorded as a sideman with Brian Lynch, Conrad Herwig, and Tom Varner, and been active in jazz education both as a teacher and as an author of instructional books.

Oscar Peterson - Beginings 1945-1949Artist: Oscar Peterson
Album: Beginings 1945-1949 (2cd compilation)
Label: BMG Canada
Year: 1945 - 1949
Release: 1996
Format, bitrate: MP3, 192 kb/s
Time: 1:35:56
Size: 132 Mb

...Oscar Peterson made his first recordings for RCA Victor in March 1945; although these early releases, notably I Got Rhythm, capitalized on his skill in the popular boogie-woogie style of the day, they also revealed in nascent form the extraordinary piano technique that would characterize his playing throughout his career. Their popularity, together with the interest generated by his exposure on such CBC Radio variety shows as Light Up and Listen and The Happy Gang, as well as two western tours in 1946, established Peterson as the first jazz star that Canada could truly call its own.
Leaving the Johnny Holmes Orchestra, Peterson formed his own trio and made the Alberta Lounge in Montréal his base from 1947 to 1949. He continued to appear on radio and to record; the 32 tunes that he recorded in Montréal for RCA Victor were collected on CD by BMG France in 1994 and repackaged by BMG Canada as Beginnings, 1945-1949 in 1996
