A tremendous bit of jazz history 2 classic Archie Shepp albums on 1 CD! Yasmina features Archie Shepp at his spiritual best recording in Paris in 1969, and absorbing a heck of a lot of pan-African influences! The centerpiece of the album is the amazing "Yasmina" a long track that builds with passion and fire, pulsing with an intensity that you'd expect more from Pharoah Sanders than Shepp himself. Next up is "Sonny's Back", a wonderful straight jazz groover with Archie and Hank Mobley on twin tenors upfront making a rare and memorable recorded appearance together! The set's capped off by a mellow version of "Body & Soul", one that points towards the more soulful side of Shepp's work in the 70s. Poem For Malcolm is one of Shepp's most memorable LPs for BYG. Side one has him playing with Burton Greene, Alan Silva, Philly Joe Jones, and Claude Delcloo on the extended Mamarose/Poem For Malcolm. The track starts out with very free playing, then moves into a more subdued passage, with Shepp's recitation of his "Poem For Malcolm". Side two has a great lineup that includes Grachan Moncour III, Malachi Favors, and Hank Mobley, who gives one of the wildest performances of his life! The group runs through the 20 minute track Rain Forest/Oleo, and begins with a dark, spare performance, then leaps into a reading of "Oleo" that's filled with fire.
~ Dusty Groove America, Inc.

This fine twofer brings together a pair of albums by tenor and soprano saxophonist Archie Shepp YASMINA, A BLACK WOMAN and POEM FOR MALCOLM, both from 1969. The dates find Shepp with plenty of the progressive conception and fiery playing that characterize his best avant-garde work. More notably, YASMINA marks Shepp's first meeting with members of the Chicago avant jazz scene, namely Lester Bowie and Roscoe Mitchell from the Art Ensemble of Chicago. There are several other guests here, including Philly Joe Jones and Hank Mobley, that make this exploratory set interesting. Jo Jones and Mobley appear on POEM as well, which offers up more of the leader's fierce, hectic out jazz. ~ CD Universe

1972-1974: Blue Mitchell - Blue's Blues

Album: Blue's Blues
Label: Mainstream
Quality: 320 kb/s
Size: 123 mb

At the time that this Mainstream LP was recorded, Blue Mitchell was the featured trumpeter with John Mayall's blues group. Mayall returned the favor for Blue's set, playing harmonica with an electric octet headed by Mitchell. Among the sidemen are Herman Riley (on tenor and flute), keyboardist Joe Sample and guitarist Freddy Robinson. The material (all obscure originals) is primarily blues-oriented, and the music overall is listenable and funky, but not particularly memorable. Just an average date from these fine musicians. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

AMG Rating: Elvin Jones & McCoy Tyner Quintet - Love & Peace

With the exception of one number ("House That Love Built") from 1978 that matches drummer Elvin Jones with the reeds of Frank Foster and Pat LaBarbera, guitarist Roland Prince and bassist Andy McCloud, this CD reissue focuses on an unusual and generally successful reunion session. Drummer Jones and pianist McCoy Tyner have not recorded together that often since leaving John Coltrane's Quartet in late 1965. With Pharoah Sanders (who was part of the reason they departed) on tenor, bassist Richard Davis in the late Jimmy Garrison's spot, and guitarist Jean-Paul Bourelly an added wild card, the musicians avoid Coltrane tunes in favor of newer originals and the standard "Sweet and Lovely." Sanders sounds very much like late-1950s Coltrane; Bourelly is a bit out of place, and Tyner easily takes solo honors. An interesting but not overly memorable outing that was originally cut for the Japanese Trio label and made available in the U.S. by the now-defunct Black-Hawk company. - Scott Yanow at AMG

To my friends in JBC and personality to Mr. Bubu Hans! Please enjoy!

Pianist Bobby Timmons, who became famous for his funky originals and soulful playing, mostly sticks to more bop-oriented jazz on this trio set with bassist Sam Jones and drummer Jimmy Cobb. He provides three originals (none of which really caught on) and is in excellent form on five standards, with highlights including "Old Devil Moon," "I Thought About You," and "Groovin' High." The Riverside CD reissue shows that Timmons was a bit more versatile than his stereotype; in any case, the music is excellent.~ by Scott Yanow, AMG

J.J. Johnson teams up with fellow trombonist Al Grey for a variety of superior standards and obscurities in a quintet with pianist Kenny Barron, bassist Ray Brown, and drummer Mickey Roker. Reissued on CD, this session has many joyful moments, and the interaction between the two very different-sounding trombonists (Grey is hot, while Johnson is cool) on such tunes as "Soft Winds," "It's Only a Paper Moon," "Boy Meets Horn," and the title cut is consistently memorable and enjoyable.

Guitarist, harmonica player, and whistler Toots Thielemans' followup to the critically acclaimed Brasil Project doesn't stray far from its predecessor's path. There are 13 nice Afro-Latin selections with Thielemans backing such top Brazilian vocalists as Milton Nascimento, Gilberto Gil, Ivan Lins, Caetano Veloso, and Dori Caymmi, among others, and guitarists Oscar Castro-Nieves and Lee Ritenour assisting Thielemans with delicate shadings and accompaniment.

AMG rating :1974-1977: Mosaic Select 26: Bobby Hutcherson

The triple-disc Mosaic Select Series has been, in some ways, more rewarding than even its limited-edition box set collections. While these are numbered and limited as well, they tend to shine light either on artists who have never gotten their due, or those who, while certainly respected, have an entire pocket of their careers largely ignored for one reason or another. Some of the titles in this series make that quite clear: John Patton, Curtis Amy, Charles Tolliver, and long unreleased recordings by Andrew Hill, to name a few. Bobby Hutcherson is an excellent example. While his 1960s recordings are well known, most of his mid-'70s recordings have never been available on CDs. Some of the reasons for this are obvious: Hutcherson, like many from the Blue Note stable, fell victim to some serious economic realities: jazz, like other forms of popular music but to a greater degree, was undergoing a cultural change in the '70s, both in terms of public perception and its actual creation. Fusion, funk, disco, and the new contemporary jazz of the CTI and Inner City camps were changing the scene and getting radio play, many of the titles by straight-ahead artists on labels like Blue Note saw their sales fall drastically during this period. Mosaic has made this right by releasing five of Hutcherson's fine mid-'70s recordings on this triple-disc set.>>>

AMG rating: 1958-1959: Peggy Lee - Things Are Swingin' / Jump For Joy 2LP/1CD

Capitol reissued Peggy Lee's 1958 albums Things Are Swingin' and Jump for Joy on one compact disc in 1997. Many of Lee's records are not all that strong from a jazz standpoint, but Things Are Swingin' is a definite exception. Backed by an orchestra arranged and conducted by Jack Marshall, the emphasis is on swinging renditions of standards; Lee's light, soft voice rarely sounded more appealing. Highlights include such sprightly songs as "It's a Wonderful World," "Lullaby in Rhythm," "Ridin' High" and "You're Mine You." Jump for Joy is more pop-oriented but just as enjoyable, finding Lee in something of a peak. Both records are among her best, making this an ideal choice for serious Peggy Lee fans. ~ Scott Yanow & Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide

AMG Rating: 1985: Larry Coryell & Emily Remler - Together

"This interesting and one-time matchup features Larry Coryell and Emily Remler on a set of guitar duets.
It is easy to tell the two players apart, yet their styles were quite complementary.
Highlights of the date (which has four standards, Pat Martino's "Gerri's Blues," and two Coryell originals) include "Joy Spring," "How My Heart Sings" and "How Insensitive."

AMG Rating: 2007: John Coltrane - My Favorite Things: Coltrane At Newport

John Coltrane appeared at the Newport Jazz Festival on five different occasions, the first in 1958 as a member of Miles Davis' Kind of Blue-era sextet. As a bandleader, Coltrane performed at the festival in 1961, 1963, 1965 and 1966, and it is the middle two sets that are combined here on this intriguing release. The 1963 band was a variation on Coltrane's classic quartet (Coltrane on tenor sax, McCoy Tyner on piano, Elvin Jones on drums and Jimmy Garrison on bass) with veteran drummer Roy Haynes sitting in for Jones, who was unable to be in attendance. Jones was back in the drum chair for the 1965 appearance, while Coltrane's final Newport showing in 1966 found him working with an entirely different band that included his wife Alice Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders. Since Coltrane did lengthy versions of his signature arrangement of "My Favorite Things" in both 1963 and 1965 (he did it in 1966, as well), it's impossible not to compare the approach of the two different drummers. Haynes has a lighter, skittering touch that gives the piece a kind of airiness while Jones is all power and propulsion which makes for a more ambiguous and ominous feel. Both versions are striking, but the real treat here is the 23 minute and change take on "Impressions" from 1963, which has never before been released in its entirety (an edited version was released in 1978). Here Coltrane and Haynes trade phrases and percussive glides after Tyner and Garrison lay out what is a truly wonderful dialogue between two veteran jazz musicians. There's little doubt that the quartet hits with more raw power with Jones driving it, but here Haynes' contribution is perfect for the moment. Taken together, the 1963 and 1965 sets make a nice whole, and having two great drummers with slightly different approaches only underscores how complete Coltrane's vision was at this point in his career. ~ Steve Leggett, All Music Guide
McCoy Tyner & Santana - Kool Jazz Festival Music
McCoy Tyner & Santana - Kool Jazz Festival

Jazz pianist McCoy Tyner might be known for his work with the John Coltrane Quartet but in the '70s, he was also experimenting with world music on albums such as Sahara.
Unless one is a Tyner fan, it is not common to associate the pianist with Carlos Santana. In the '80s, Tyner was in a Latin phase so the hook-up with Carlos Santana would seem a natural one. As a result, Santana appeared on Tyner's 1982 album, Looking Out (which also featured Stanley Clarke and saxophonist Gary Bartz). Preparing for his next album (Dimensions, 1984), Tyner showcased Prelude To A Kiss and Gary Bartz's tribute to T Monk - Uncle Babba - at this San Francisco show. Still fresh from the previous year's Looking Out, Tyner roped in Santana for three songs. While the first track allowed the band to have a good jam and warm up, it is Duke Ellington's Prelude To A Kiss that showed the finesse that Tyner displayed straddling between jaunty and romantic jazz. Three years later, in a general write-up on McCoy Tyner in the New York Times, John S Wilson commented on Tyner's take on the song: "The essence of Mr Tyner's burly attack remains evident even when he plays an unaccompanied piano solo on a normally romantic pastel such as Duke Ellington's Prelude To A Kiss. After a brief, delicate statement, the huge waves of rolling lines start falling over one another while his left hand builds a boiling drive." Of course the mood takes on a decidedly Latin swing when Santana came on during the later half. Against a samba backdrop, the piano-guitar exchange is exhilarating. While some traditional jazz fans might baulk at the swinging Tyner-Santana team-up, others will rightly feel that this very good audience recording is a real find.

AMG Rating: Gene Harris Superband - Live At Town Hall N.Y.C.

This CD documents one of the first concerts by Gene Harris' star-studded big band, an orchestra heard at the beginning of an 80-day world tour. Unlike his earlier big band Basie tribute album, Harris is not the only musician to get significant solo space on this set although, due to the overflowing lineup, not enough is heard from everyone. The straightforward arrangements (by John Clayton, Frank Wess, Torrie Zito, Bob Pronk and Lex Jasper) balance swingers with ballads. Among the more memorable tracks are Harry "Sweets" Edison's feature (both muted and open) on "Sleepy Time Down South," a pair of fine vocals apiece by Ernie Andrews and Ernestine Anderson, the roaring "Old Man River" and Harris' interpretation of Erroll Garner's ballad "Creme de Menthe." Toss in short solos from the likes of Ralph Moore, James Morrison (on trombone), Frank Wess, Michael Mossman and baritonist Gary Smulyan and the result is a satisfying, swinging and fairly fresh big band date. - Scott Yanow at AMG
