REPOST with new links from Mr. hungaropitecus

Tomes are available annotating the importance of this recording. The musical and social impact of Miles Davis, his collaborative efforts with Gil Evans, and in particular their reinvention of George Gershwin's Porgy and Bess are indeed profound. However, the most efficient method of extricating the rhetoric and opining is to experience the recording. Few other musical teams would have had the ability to remain true to the undiluted spirit and multifaceted nuance of this epic work. However, no other musical teams were Miles Davis and Gil Evans. It was Evans' intimate knowledge of the composition as well as the performer that allowed him to so definitively capture the essence of both. The four dates needed to complete work on Porgy and Bess include contributions from several members of his most recent musical aggregate: Julian "Cannonball" Adderley (alto sax), Paul Chambers (bass), and Jimmy Cobb (drums). Although the focus and emphasis is squarely on Davis throughout, the contributions of the quartet on "Prayer (Oh Doctor Jesus)," "I Loves You, Porgy," and "There's a Boat That's Leaving Soon for New York" are immeasurable. They provide a delicate balance in style and, under the direction of Evans, incorporate much of the same energy and intonation here as they did to their post-bop recordings. There is infinitely more happening on Porgy and Bess, however, with much of the evidence existing in the subtle significance of the hauntingly lyrical passages from Danny Banks' (alto flute) solos, which commence on "Fishermen, Strawberry and Devil Crab." Or the emotive bass and tuba duet that runs throughout "Buzzard Song." The impeccable digital remastering and subsequent CD reissue -- which likewise applies to the Miles Davis & Gil Evans: The Complete Columbia Studio Recordings box set -- only magnifies the refulgence of Porgy and Bess. Likewise, two previously unissued performances have been appended to the original baker's dozen. No observation or collection of American jazz can be deemed complete without this recording.

The second of two CDs reissuing tenor saxophonist Wardell Gray's Prestige recordings features Gray in three different settings. Nine-minute versions of "Scrapple from the Apple" and "Move" were recorded live in L.A. with trumpeter Clark Terry, altoist Sonny Criss, a boppish rhythm section, and (on "Move") the competitive tenor of Dexter Gordon. Otherwise, Gray is heard in the studios with a quartet and a sextet that includes trumpeter Art Farmer and pianist Hampton Hawes. The latter date resulted in "Jackie," which (like "Twisted") would soon become a vocalese hit for Annie Ross. Six alternate takes round out this strong reissue. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

Originally released as two LPs and then a two-LP set, tenorman Wardell Gray's Prestige recordings are now available as two CDs that have been expanded by the inclusion of alternate takes only previously available on the collector's Misterioso label. The music on this particular CD is taken from two sessions: a quartet outing with pianist Al Haig, bassist Tommy Potter, and drummer Roy Haynes, and a sextet session with pianist Sonny Clark, vibraphonist Teddy Charles, and the young altoist Frank Morgan. The former date is highlighted by the famous "Twisted," which Annie Ross would soon record in a vocalese version. This CD actually has four versions of "Twisted" (along with seven of "Southside"), so there is a bit of repetition, but the great tenor Wardell Gray is heard throughout in prime form. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

To my friends in JBC! Please enjoy.

This lesser-known CD is of great interest, for it features the Count Basie Orchestra (under the direction of Grover Mitchell) in top form and, on four numbers, the New York Voices. The Voices sound perfectly at home, showing off their jazz chops on "Cottontail," "In a Mellow Tone," "Love Makes the World Go Round" and "Farmer's Market." Except for the latter, which has words by Annie Ross, all of the lyrics are by the great Jon Hendricks. Otherwise, the Basie Orchestra (with solos by pianist George Caldwell, trumpeter Bob Ojeda, trombonist Clarence Banks, tenor saxophonist Kenny Hing and a few others) performs spirited versions of their usual repertoire, including "Whirly Bird," "Basie" and "Down for the Count." An excellent set of typically swinging music, worth searching for. ~ Scott Yanow, AMG.

For Friends!

Reuben Wilson's 30-year musical influence on the modern music scene is readily apparent on Down With It, released in 1998 on the ultra-funky Cannonball label. Wilson's legendary status is well-deserved. Revered around the world as one of the pioneers of the Hammond B3 organ sound, the "godfather of funk and soul-jazz" continues to transplant his groove into the acid jazz movement. Unlike the previously released Organ Donor, Wilson does not revisit his classics "Hot Rod" and "Got to Get Your Own," but has written four new tunes on the set, including "One 2 Four," which reunites him with soul-jazz guitar pioneer Melvin Sparks. Pop and funk are taken to new heights on the title track, "Down With It," while Wilson's slow blues signature is stamped on "Speakin' With the Deacon." Wilson's mastery of the Hammond B3 is in the pocket, as the maestro continues to enjoy its renaissance and down-home funk. - ~ Paula Edelstein, All Music Guide

, , , - , 29 . , , - , , . , ...

Recorded two years before legendary West Coast pianist's death. With Leroy Vinnegar (b), Lawrence Marable (d). Six Perkins originals make this an important document. He was an important sideman. Here as a leader he shows his true worth. A must find/buy. ~ Michael G. Nastos, All Music Guide

One of the few albums as a leader cut by legendary LA pianist Carl Perkins – an amazing talent on his instrument, and one who had an unusual "sideways" approach to the keys! Perkins kind of leaned alongside the piano – so that his body was parallel to the instrument, and his fingers reached out, moving back and forth on the ivories – with a sound that was almost as if he was strumming the whole thing! The style really stands out, and makes for some especially deft moments here in this classic trio set for Dootoo – a fluid and grooving session that also features Leroy Vinnegar on bass and Lawrence Marable on drums. Tracks include "Marble Head", "Way Cross Town", "Carl's Blues", and "Lilacs In The Rain". 1996-2010, Dusty Groove America, Inc.

Repost with a new link

The first thing that becomes clear on Courtney Pine's Underground is that the hip-hop-jazz hybrids of the 1990s (such as Digable Planets, A Tribe Called Quest, US3, or even the Dream Warriors) missed their target; the combination is much stronger when it's jazz-hip-hop, and the latter becomes a textural element. Pine sticks to his guns-frenetic melodies, engaging song structures, and a keen ability to keep his jazz cool and never lite. Those talents shine further when given the icing of exquisite samples, particularly when the rapid-fire cuts and sharp sense of humor show a respect for turntablism. And lest Pine's jazz fans be dismayed, tracks like "Invisible" seamlessly slip back into Pine's masterful (more traditional) jazz persona. Of particular note is "Tryin' Times," one of the few tracks with vocals, which acts as both a lounge singer vehicle as well as venue for Pine's dizzying saxophone acrobatics. Underground is a great introduction to Pine's work, and if there's any justice, will someday be recognized as a benchmark jazz-hip-hop hybrid experiment.

Places and things are not supposed to glow. But glow they did on that day at Capitol Studios. As the crews prepped the room for Deedles and B.B., friends and people I didn't know gave me thumbs-up and asked if they could peek in.

Musically, we had done our homework. Doug Katsaros and I had spent three incredible days at Deedles' pad (Diane Schuur's apartment) checking ideas, picking places for harmony or exchanges between B.B. and Diane. Tapes were off to B.B. and the process began.

The powerful songs of Argentine composer Gustavo Cuchi Leguizamon ( 1917-2000) are vividly inventive and original; poetic and lyrical while at the same time drawing intensity from folkloric rhythms and song structures. Rich in intervallic adventure and melodic surprise, they can be thrilling to encounter. Argentine composer/pianist/ bandleader Guillermo Kleinss creative journey into the essence of Leguizamons work is deeply satisfying in the ways it honors that poetry and emotion and thrilling vividness within a richly imagined jazz context.

Kleins acoustic piano voicings are often at the heart of this imagining, as he gives strength and space to the movement of middle voices, manifesting a deliciously transparent juxtaposition of tension and release, of harmonic motion, that is by turns yearning and quietly explosive.

Equal to all this are the other players in the ensemble Los Guachos: Melody and emotion are constant in the playing of trumpeters Richard Nant and Juan Cruz De Urquiza and reed-players Martin Pantyrer and Gustavo Musso. The colors of Rhodes electric piano from Esteban Sehinkman and restless, tactile textures of Matias Mendezs electric bass weave and flow around and toward each other in fascinating, hypnotic ways. Then theres drummer Daniel Pipi Piazzolla, anchoring and orchestrating all at once with his array of grooves and cross-rhythms. This band plays gloriously and generously together, breathing and dancing as one, yet allowing each voice its individual energy and expression.

The lyrical aspect of Leguizamons work is honored and explored here also, with vocal turns from Klein himself he sings in a gentle, breathy, intimate style and guest singers Roman Giudice, Liliana Herrero and Carme Canela.

This is music always flowing and focused, arriving at ever-new intersections of line and harmony, and fresh groupings of voices and textures. Most importantly, it is evident that both Kleins arrangements and the ensemble Los Guachos playing have sought and found the heart, soul and body of Leguizamons compositions in ways that live and breathe.

AMG Rating: 1994: Ernest Dawkins' New Horizons Ensemble - Chicago Now - Thirty Years of Great Black Music, Vol. 1

This CD is full of surprises and unpredictable music. Altoist Ernest Dawkins and his versatile sidemen perform a wide variety of originals. "Improvisation #1" (which was freely improvised in the studio) evolves from sound explorations to a riff section and back, while "Improvisation #2" is a lowdown but spacy blues. The longer pieces tend to be episodic and a little reminiscent of Charles Mingus in the way that they reinvent the past a bit to form a new and uncertain future. There are times when the group is not perfectly in-tune and Dawkins' soprano playing on "Bold Souls" makes one realize that it is probably his fourth best instrument. Much better is his fiery alto playing on "Dream for Rahsaan," a tribute to Roland Kirk. The final three numbers are consistently exciting, trumpeter Ameen Muhammad adds power to the group, trombonist Steve Berry blends well with Dawkins' alto, and the pianoless rhythm section (guitarist Jeff Parker, bassist Yosef Ben Israel, and drummer Reggie Nicholson) is alert and driving. This is a highly recommended disc that keeps alive the Chicago AACM tradition.

AMG rating: 1960-1963:The Complete Roulette Sarah Vaughan Studio Sessions (8 CD BOX SET)

Sarah Vaughan recorded frequently during her three years with Roulette, and all 16 albums she completed for them plus five previously unissued tracks are included in this comprehensive eight-CD boxed set from Mosaic. The gifted singer is heard in a variety of settings, from superb small-group sessions to big-band settings and various dates bordering on easy listening; the sessions omitting the often syrupy string sections are the cream of this bumper crop. It's a joy to hear Vaughan sharing the spotlight with Joe Williams and the Count Basie Orchestra (with its leader sitting out in favor of her regular pianist, Kirk Stuart) in a swinging "Teach Me Tonight" and a playful take of "If I Were a Bell"; it's a shame that they never recorded an entire album together. Benny Carter's big-band charts also bring out the best in Vaughan. With the exception of the forgettable "The Green Leaves of Summer," Billy May's provides the vocalist with very compatible settings. The scaled-down session with guitarist Mundell Lowe and bassist George Duvivier is among her greatest achievements of her career; the singer is relaxed and stimulated by her accompanists. A similar follow-up date with Barney Kessel and Joe Comfort is equally rewarding. The sessions which add strings, led by various musicians (Jimmy Jones, Quincy Jones, Lalo Schifrin, Joe Reisman, Don Costa, and Marty Manning) serving as both arranger and conductor, vary greatly in quality. Often first-rate (and sometimes somewhat obscure) material is sabotaged by heavy-handed writing awash in strings. But for the most part, Vaughan's gorgeous voice is able to overcome even bland backgrounds. Mosaic remains the pinnacle of reissue labels with this handsome boxed set, which includes detailed liner notes by James Gavin, lots of session photos, and a thorough discography.
