Wynton Marsalis - Jump Start And Jazz Music » Jazz » BeBop » Post-bop
Wynton Marsalis - Jump Start And Jazz Artist: Wynton Marsalis & the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra
Album: Jump Start And Jazz
Label: Columbia, (ru)
Year: 1996
Format, bitrate: mp3, 160 kbps
Time: 68:03
Size: 74 mb

These ballets, each lasting a few minutes over half an hour, are mostly written-out compositions with jazz rhythm sections and jazz inflections from the players. As in much of Marsalis' writing in the '90s, he reaches back to several pre-bop classic jazz styles to form a synthesis of his own, with the wailing mark of Ellington ever-present in the voicings and harmonies. Jazz: 6 1/2 Syncopated Movements is a tightly arranged series of episodes that stalk across the jazz landscape from ragtime to dissonance, sometimes so tightly that it begins to resemble cartoon music. One of the more striking sections is "Trail of Tears," which has subtly smeared harmonies and horse-laughing from the muted brasses, and "Express Crossing" is right in the mold of Ellington's "Daybreak Express," with a nice breakneck muted solo for Marsalis. Though burdened with a typically pompous title, Jump Start The Mastery of Melancholy is actually the less pretentious ballet of the two, a suite of ten brief, disconnected big-band pieces in different idioms where the jazz elements come through with more freedom for the rhythm section and the soloists. This work hits its stride only toward the close with "Bebop" for small group (where Marsalis burns as he did in his extreme youth) and Harry "sweets" Edison's delicious cameo on "Jump." Heavily staffed by members of Marsalis' late septet, The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra plays both works in precise, crisp fashion, with Marsalis conducting Jump Start and playing lead and section trumpet in both ballets.

Roy Hargrove - The RH Factor: Hard Groove Music » Soul » Soul-Jazz
Roy Hargrove - The RH Factor: Hard GrooveArtist: Roy Hargroove & The RH Factor
Album: Hard Groove
Label: Verve
Year: 2003
Time: 1:12:23
Format: FLAC
Size: (110 x 3)+109MB (with covers)

A new musical vision for ace jazz trumpeter Roy Hargrove has manifested itself in the form of Hard Groove. This neo-soul/jazz project showcases Erykah Badu, Common, D'Angelo, Marc Cary, and jam band icon saxophonist Karl Denson on a 14-track set that is laden with funk, groove, freestyle rap poetry, and sultry hip-hop/R&B mood swings. Hargrove's interesting horn and keyboard improvisations stem from extensive knowledge of each musician's work and, perhaps even more importantly, from close personal friendships developed as an underground club jam session warrior in N.Y.C. He also plays flgelhorn and percussion, and adds background vocals on several compositions. Opening with "Hardgroove," the set eases into a groove that is skillfully combined with Hargrove's meticulous riffs and segues into the band's free interpretation of an all-out jam session. "Common Free Style" is just that, a free rap session crammed with intimate details. This team-up works, and Common's prose style is exemplary in his choice of words and inspiring atmosphere. As one of the ladies who sings with the band, Grammy-winning Erykah Badu presents a valuable addition to the literature of hip-hop and jazz on several levels. On "Poetry," her rap is an entertaining and unpretentious chronicle of knowing the way to go in life, recounted with honesty and sincerity. Overall, Roy Hargrove has evolved as a hipper version of himself and given his listeners an entirely new musical direction than that heard on his Grammy-winning release Habana or his sensuous ballad recording Moment to Moment. Hard Groove is simply an exploration of his multidimensional musical attributes and his belated recognition of years of "open-eared moonlighting." In any case, the ultra-hip trumpeter manages not to alienate his die-hard jazz fans by intersecting with many of the icons of hip-hop, R&B, and neo-soul. Highly recommended.

Roy Eldridge - Live at the Three Deuces Club 1937

Label - Jazz Archives
Year - 1937, release - 1996
Quality - MP3@320 kbps
Size - 79,9 mb
Total time - 35:23

Trumpeter Roy Eldridge's octet, which recorded six songs in Jan. 1937, is heard on this LP stretching out during a couple of radio broadcasts from later that year. Actually, despite the fine playing of altoists Joe Eldridge and Scoops Carey, tenor Dave Young and the four-piece rhythm section, the focus is generally on the exciting trumpeter/leader. The recording quality is erratic but the performances are often quite heated with Eldridge showing what he learned from listening to Louis Armstrong, most notably how to build a solo gradually up to a high note. Highlights include "Little Jazz," "Basin Street Blues," "Heckler's Hop" and "Chinatown, My Chinatown."

Album: Hot House Flower
Label: Columbia
Year: 1984
Release: 1990
Format, bitrate: mp3, 160 kbps
Time: 41 min
Size: 50 mb

Wynton Marsalis, very much in his Miles Davis period, plays quite melodically throughout this ballad-dominated outing with strings. Branford Marsalis (on tenor and soprano), flutist Kent Jordan, pianist Kenny Kirkland, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Jeff Watts are strong assets but it is Wynton's subtle creativity on such songs as "Stardust," "When You Wish Upon a Star," Duke Ellington's "Melancholia," and "I'm Confessin'" that makes this recording special. The arrangements by Robert Freedman generally keep the strings from sounding too sticky and Wynton's tone is consistently beautiful.

Amy Jade Winehouse (born 14 September 1983) is an English singer and songwriter, known for her eclectic mix of various musical genres including R&B, soul, jazz, rock & roll, and ska.Winehouse is best known for her soulful, powerful contralto vocals.
Winehouse's 2003 debut album Frank was commercially and critically successful in her native Britain. It was nominated for the Mercury Prize. Her 2006 follow-up album Back to Black led to six Grammy Award nominations and five wins, tying the record for the most wins by a female artist in a single night, and made Winehouse the first British singer to win five Grammys, including three of the "Big Four": Best New Artist, Record of the Year and Song of the Year. On 14 February 2007, she won a BRIT Award for Best British Female Artist; she had also been nominated for Best British Album. She has won the Ivor Novello Award three times, one in 2004 for Best Contemporary Song (musically and lyrically) for "Stronger Than Me", one in 2007 for Best Contemporary Song for "Rehab", and one in 2008 for Best Song Musically and Lyrically for "Love Is a Losing Game", among other prestigious distinctions.
Winehouse has received media attention apart from her singing. Her distinctive style has been the muse for fashion designers such as Karl Lagerfeld. The singer's problems with drug and alcohol addiction, as well as self-destructive behaviour, have become regular tabloid news since 2007. She and her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, have been plagued by legal troubles that left him serving prison time and a subsequent pending divorce. In 2008, Winehouse faced a series of health complications that threatened both her life and her career

AMG Rating: The Gil Evans Orchestra – Plays The Music Of Jimi Hendrix

This CD reissue (which adds additional material to the original LP program) is much more successful than one might have expected. Jimi Hendrix was scheduled to record with Gil Evans' orchestra, but died before the session could take place. A few years later, Evans explored ten of Hendrix's compositions with his unique 19-piece unit, an orchestra that included two French horns; the tuba of Howard Johnson; three guitars; two basses; two percussionists; and such soloists as altoist David Sanborn, trumpeter Hannibal Marvin Peterson, Billy Harper on tenor, and guitarists Ryo Kawasaki and John Abercrombie. Evans' arrangements uplift many of Hendrix's more blues-oriented compositions and create a memorable set that is rock-oriented, but retains the improvisation and personality of jazz. [This album was re-released in 2002 on the Bluebird label with four bonus tracks from the same sessions.]

Experimental sound, first gig - germination of a super band. Recorded in April 19,1985 At Elario's and released in Japan only in 1996 this is a rare find! A must have for jazz-fusion fans! Although played only in trio this is a wonderful and inspirational set. Chick's tricks and experimentations on keyboards are wonderful

Chick Corea & Origin - Live At The Blue Note Artist: Chick Corea & Origin
Album: Live At The Blue Note (compilation)
Label: Stretch
Year: 1998

Time: 1:05:38
Size: 86,5 Mb

Recording live at New York's Blue Note club, Chick Corea unveiled another new group, the challenging Origin acoustic sextet, on this CD, winnowing down some 12 sets into an hour-plus package. With Steve Davis (trombone) and Bob Sheppard and Steve Wilson (flutes and reeds) up front, Corea had a flexible horn choir to write for, and he uses mellow, urbane voicings that recall some of the Herbie Hancock Sextet's early work in the late '60s. The interplay that Avishai Cohen (bass), Adam Cruz (drums), and Corea have with the horns, though, is anything but mellow, and frequently they strike combative sparks against each other. Some of the selections, including "Double Image" (no relation to Joe Zawinul's electric jazz classic) and "Dreamless," have Latin-ish grooves — which are no strangers to Corea's Spanish heart — in spots. Corea's compositions are often fairly uneven — the allegedly Ellington-inspired convolutions of "Molecules" especially try the patience — yet everything here testifies to Corea's still restless, creatively vigorous nature at age 56. For some unknown reason, the Japanese version of the disc is said to contain an extra track, "Sifu," recorded in Corea's home with just the piano trio.

One of the most promising of the pianist-composers of the 1990s, Billy Childs is a superb player and an underrated writer. He toured with J.J. Johnson (with whom he made his recording debut), graduated from USC, had an important association with Freddie Hubbard (1978-1984), and led Night Flight (a group with Dianne Reeves). Childs recorded four albums as a leader for Windham Hill Jazz (starting in 1988) and one for Stretch; started writing commissioned works in 1992 (including a 1994 concerto for the Monterey Jazz Festival); and has worked with Allan Holdsworth, Eddie Daniels, Bobby Hutcherson, and Branford Marsalis, among others, in addition to leading his own regular quartet.

, Verve 50-60 .

Many of trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie's recordings for the Verve label in the '50s and early '60s show him at the peak of his powers. This three-CD set is a sampler of his legacy, with the discs subtitled "Big Band," "Small Groups & Guests" and "In an Afro Cuban, Bossa Nova, Calypso Groove." The programming jumps all over the place and makes little sense but this set serves as a good excuse to acquire 40 performances by the great Gillespie and the many all-stars who recorded with him. Few but the most fanatical veteran Gillespie fans will have all of these selections. This collection filled a void until Verve got around to doing a much more comprehensive Dizzy Gillespie reissue program.

AMG Rating: Oscar Peterson - Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz

Marian McPartland has taped many programs for her long-running National Public Radio series Piano Jazz, and Oscar Peterson's first guest appearance on the show ranks among her best. Peterson's virtuoso playing is matched by his willingness to share with his hostess some of the techniques that help make his style so distinctive. Peterson's dazzling solos include a stunning interpretation of "Old Folks," a very refreshing take of the frequently recorded "Body and Soul," and delightful miniatures of "Emily," "Take the 'A' Train," and his own "Place St. Henri." McPartland's solo feature is her memorable, bittersweet ballad "Willow Creek." An adventurous romp through "Cotton Tail" is the gem of their several duets together. Previously issued by Jazz Alliance in 1996, this repackaged version adds no new material, but it should be considered a mandatory acquisition by fans of either Oscar Peterson or Marian McPartland.

Chick is the king of all whup-as-s when it comes to chops among monster jazz pianists. I mean, if you want to talk intense technique on the keys, no one even comes close, not Jarrett, not Mehldau, not Hancock, not Kuhn, not Oscar Peterson or Hiromi and not even Lyle Mays, just listen to the endlessly creative hundred note runs of 64ths he plays with crystal clear tone in improv all over this CD, almost blowing Vinnie out of his seat. Vinnie is a well-known alien from another planet, such a great drummer that hardly any player fazes him but Chick is out to teach the 'kid' a lesson and a lesson he does, in fact, impart.
The amazing John Patitucci also plays here the best I have personally ever heard him play, especially on upright bass. With Vinnie and John turning up the heat, this becomes a completely different band than with Weckl, a firestorm of a beast, always on the edge, although this may be because this is just a one-off date, almost an impromptu jam-session and everybody is unleashed with little restraint.
The set itself is not entirely acoustic, "Tumba" is mostly electric actually but fits in perfectly with the rest of the set. Also, Chick should always play a real grand piano instead of that piano simulator he plays. "Humpty Dumpty," "Chasing the Trane" and "Autumn Leaves" in particular are literal demonstration models of Chick's most extreme virtuoso playing.

Bubu's Rating: Chick Corea & Touchstone - Rhumba Flamenco: Live in Europe

And here's the confirmation. The universalization of flamenco has been talked about for a long time, but such clear proof of it is an eye-opener. Chick Corea, who has been in love with this genre for a long time now, has been sharing a musical project for nearly two years with three of the authors of what has come to be called flamenco jazz (or vice versa) and partners of Paco de Luca for decades: Jorge Pardo, Carles Benavent and Rubem Dantas. He shares jazz style with them and, with the same naturalness, flamenco style. And that is what's so impressive about the experience. After touring Europe and America, in the meantime leaving a live album recorded and another one at the studio, the band appeared at the Madrid Jazz Festival, enrapturing those attending.
And that, despite the fact that the American pianist opted to present not the Rhumba Flamenco repertoire, but the new Arabian Nights. Even so, the flamenco came little by little. A glimpse of it was first caught in Jorge Pardo's magical melodies, next in some turns of Carles Benavent's magnificent bass, later on in the rhythm marked by Rubem Dantas... and finally led to an original finale through buleras in which Tomasito and Auxi Fernndez took part on baile.

Keith Jarrett - Facing You

Album: Facing You
Label: ECM
Year: 1972
Genre: free-jazz
Format Mp3, bitrate: 320 kb/s
Time: 47:36
Size: 114 Mb
AMG Rating :Keith Jarrett - Facing You

Facing You is one of the most important recordings in contemporary jazz for several reasons, aside from being beautifully conceived and executed by pianist Keith Jarrett. It is a hallmark recording of solo piano in any discipline, a signature piece in the early ECM label discography, a distinct departure from mainstream jazz, a breakthrough for Jarrett, and a studio prelude for his most famous solo project to follow, The Kln Concert. Often meditative, richly melodic, inventive, and introspective beyond compare, Jarrett expresses his soul in tailored tones that set standards for not only this kind of jazz, but music that would serve him and his fans in good stead onward. In this program of all originals, which sound spontaneously improvised with certain pretexts and motifs as springboards, the rhapsodic "Ritooria," 4/4 love/spirit song "Lalene," and song for family and life "My Lady; My Child" firmly establish Jarrett's heartfelt and thoughtful approach. "Vapallia" cements the thematic, seemingly effortless, lighter — but never tame — aesthetic. "Starbright" is an easy-paced two-step tune signifying fully Jarrett's personalized stance. Straddling a more jagged, angular, and free edge, the pianist evokes the influence of Paul Bley during "Semblence" (sic). But it is the opening selection, an extended ten-minute opus titled "In Front," that truly showcases Jarrett at his playful best — a timeless, modal, direct, and bright delight. A remarkable effort that reveals more and more with each listen, this recording has stood the test of time, and is unquestionably a Top Three recording in Keith Jarrett's long and storied career.
