REPOST with new links

Multi-instrumentalist Roland Kirk leaves the stritch, manzello and other exotic instruments at home for this all-flute outing from his pre-"Rahsaan" days. Consisting mostly of originals, with a couple of show tunes and a swinging take on John Lewis' "Django" thrown in, I Talk to the Spirits provides the best sampling of Kirk's unique flute style. He hums along with himself as he plays, inserts pieces of lyrics when the mood hits, finds overtones and multi-part harmonies as he blows madly through the upper register and sails sweetly through the lower. Included here is the original version of "Serenade to a Cuckoo," a song later taken to rock audiences with its inclusion on the first Jethro Tull album. (In fact, for the Tull fan who wants to hear where Ian Anderson borrowed his style, I Talk to the Spirits is the place to go.) The playing on this outing is uniformly excellent, with Kirk ranging from his trademark up-tempo overblowing on "A Quote from Clifford Brown" to bluesy growling on "The Business Ain't Nothing But the Blues" to placid beauty on the ballad "Trees." He guides Kurt Weill's "My Ship" on a five-minute voyage through calm seas and turbulent double-timed storms. Kirk's sense of whimsy and musical fun is evident throughout.

The Dave Brubeck Quartet revolutionised jazz and the wider world of music with their daring compositions and timing. They pushed the envelope and changed what was expected of jazz music. The first of our two albums here, 'Time Out', is Brubeck's most famous album, a real masterpiece, which would forever alter the way jazz was conceived by both critics and the mainstream. As a special bonus we have added Bubeck's 'Gone With The Wind' album. Enjoy!

Some late-'80s Charles light pop, countrypolitan, and other good to below-average material. Charles sings with the usual strong touches, but he can't salvage much of this stuff. It's designed for those who want everything he's ever done. Otherwise, it won't merit much mention in his extensive legacy.

AMG rating: 2010: Lee Konitz New Quartet - Live at the Village Vanguard

For mr. lex!

Well into his eighties, alto saxophone grand master Lee Konitz continues to come up with fresh approaches playing modern mainstream jazz with an edge. Teamed here with the multi-national trio dubbed Minsarah, Konitz is reunited with German pianist Florian Weber, himself an iconoclast and progressive thinker. Recorded at the historic Village Vanguard in N.Y.C. on two separate nights gives any prepared listener all the challenges and satisfaction one could ask from the vaunted and still viable Konitz. If you've heard a thousand versions of the bop flag waver "Cherokee," perhaps the East Indian-flavored and churning rendition by Konitz and his charges will enlighten you. Originals like the pensive but easy swinger "Subconscious-Lee" or the soul/spirit song "Kay's Trance" will convince you that the saxophonist is still quite capable of digging in and standing his ground, physically or emotionally. While a variation of "All The Things You Are" that Konitz has dubbed "Thingin'" always hits the mark with deft chord substitutions, it is never played the same way twice . Whether in fleet bop constructs, breathy but concise long tones, or choppy off-minor phrases, Konitz always makes sure that every single note counts. Weber's feature "Color" sans the alto, has the pianist stretching out in morning dew refrains then cutting loose, and again backing down dynamically in complete command of his instrument. Bassist Jeff Denson (from San Diego) and drummer Ziv Ravitz (a native of Israel) round out the New Quartet, supplying Konitz with grace or firepower galore on this impressive recording that hopefully yields follow-up volumes, either from the Vanguard or other hallowed grounds.

"This is a wonderful disc, ranging freely through the fields of the last fifty years of jazz while keeping their feet planted firmly in the present." - Popmatters

In many ways, The Relatives shares similarities with Jeff Parker's first release as a leader, Like-Coping. Parker still favors a clean tone, thoughtful note choices over flash at every turn, and a cooperative aesthetic with his bandmates (Parker had his hand in writing only three of eight tracks). The main differences are the addition of Sam Barsheshet on Fender Rhodes and Wurlitzer, and a more "song-oriented" approach that casts Parker's playing in a new light. There's less of a bebop flavor, although his playing is just as harmonically rich, and these songs are much more likely to stick in your head than the slightly more abstract songs on Like-Coping. And the only time they even approach the intensity of the two collective improvisations from Like-Coping is on the intro to the final tune. They even cover Marvin Gaye! "Istanbul" is Chad Taylor's only contribution, a pretty tune with some acoustic guitar and excellent brushwork from Taylor. "Mannerisms" (which bears some resemblance to "Spanish Key" by Miles Davis) picks up the pace with an insistent groove and some great Rhodes work from Barsheshet. Parker's soloing is unhurried and very melodic, with just enough twists and turns to keep things constantly interesting. This approach becomes really evident on "When Did You Stop Loving Me, When Did I Stop Loving You," where Parker's note choices add a considerable knottiness to the Marvin Gaye tune. His take on "The Relative" (originally written for Isotope 217) has a great polyrhythmic groove and a cool phased treatment over the top, and bassist Chris Lopes adds some tasty flute to his tune "Beanstalk." "Rang" is the only track to disrupt the easygoing vibe with a slightly ominous intro before settling into a more gentle groove, even as Chad Taylor whips up an Elvin Jones-style quiet storm behind them. These guys are not just great players, they're great listeners, and The Relatives perfectly balances the gentle and tuneful with the added spark of the band's collective improvisational skills. The sound is more approachable than his other albums, but no less interesting. This is a real winner.
