REPOST with a new link from Mr.jjpgracia

The best of his Fantasy releases of the '70s, this well-rounded CD is highlighted by a great jam on "Reunion at Newport" and strong soloing from Herman (on soprano and clarinet), pianist Harold Danko, trumpeter Bill Stapleton and the tenors of Gregory Herbert and Frank Tiberi. The Herman orchestra performs a couple of modern ballads ("Alone Again Naturally" and "Summer of '42"), some blues and a few swinging numbers, showing off their versatility with expertise and spirit.

1959: Teddy Wilson - And Then They Wrote... Stride, Swing, Mainstream
1959: Teddy Wilson -  And Then They Wrote...
Artist: Teddy Wilson
Album: And Then They Wrote...
Label: Sony/Columbia
Year: 1959, release: 2005
Quality: MP3@320 kbps
Size: 72,6 mb
Total time: 34:36
By request

The title of this album doesn't tell the whole story of this Teddy Wilson album. Instead of And Then They Wrote, it should have been "They Wrote...and Then They Played." Wilson and his trio pay tribute to a number of his fellow piano players who were also composers of some note. There is no attempt here to re-create with any degree of authenticity the way these tunes were performed by their creators. But Wilson couldn't help adding a bit of the stride to James P. Johnson's "If I Could Be With You One Hour Tonight," and slipping in some of the effervescence that characterized Fats Waller's pianistic style during "Honeysuckle Rose." Major Holley shows off his walking bass on this cut. Wilson includes one of his own pieces, "Sunny Morning," which he used as the theme to introduce his trio in the early '40s. The material on this album is mostly upbeat. But there are more sober moments with Duke Ellington's "Sophisticated Lady" and Thelonious Monk's "`Round Midnight," which he smooths out much more than Monk's more angular approach to his most famous composition. Nor is his view of "Misty" as ornate as Erroll Garner's. Most of those honored by Wilson are his peers as he shares the same, or higher, place in the uppermost level of the temple of jazz pianists. Moreover, no matter who or what he was acclaiming, Wilson's place as one of the more sophisticated, suave, and elegant jazz interpreters is not diminished a bit. If you can find this album, grab it.

2011: Room Full of Blues - Hook, Line, and Sinker Music » Blues » Modern electric blues

2011: Room Full of Blues -  Hook, Line, and Sinker
Artist: Roomful of Blues
Album: Hook, Line and Sinker
Year : 2011
Label: Alligator
Format: Flac (image) + cue + log
Quality: Lossless
Total Time: 41:32
Total Size: 288 Mb

Roomful of Blues have been playing their blistering take on the jump blues for over 35 years and through numerous personnel changes. Only saxman Rich Lataille is left from the band's best-known lineup, and even he joined after Roomful of Blues had been playing beer joints for three years, but their sound still remains as rough and tough as ever and that's a good thing indeed. On Hook, Line & Sinker they're doing what they've always done, and as the provocative album cover suggests, they remain capable of delivering a platter full of sly, sexy stompers. There aren't any originals this time around; instead they trot out a bunch of juke joint classics and infuse them with their own special brand of soulful grit. Chris Vachon's slinky guitar pulls you into the opener, "That's a Pretty Good Love," a tune made popular by Big Maybelle. Vachon's long, serpentine solo complements the song's smoldering message. Vocalist Phil Pemberton shines on "Kill Me," with a soulful, growling vocal worthy of the Don & Dewey original, while he shows off his tender side on Floyd Dixon's "Time Brings About a Change," which features an intricate late-night piano solo by Travis Colby. But like all good Roomful albums, it's the uptempo numbers that really make you want to hit the replay button. Vachon lets loose on the smokin' instrumental "Gate Walks to Board," then steps aside to let Lataille, Mark Earley, and trumpeter Doug Woolverton trade wailing solos. They play the bouncy title track, a tune by Dave Bartholomew/Pearl King that Smiley Lewis had a hit on, with the pedal to the metal. Gatemoth Brown's "She Walks Right In" gets the full jump blues treatment, with John Turner's acoustic bass pushing the band into overdrive and the horn section wailing like a chorus of desperate drunks at closing time on Saturday night. ~ j. poet, All Music Guide
1999: Chuck Mangione - The Feeling's Back Music » Jazz » Fusion » Jazz-Pop
1999: Chuck Mangione - The Feeling's Back
Artist: Chuck Mangione
Album: The Feeling's Back
Year: 1999
Label: Chesky
Quality: FLAC (cue, log, scans)
Size: 344 MB
Total time: 57:00

Chuck Mangione laid low throughout much of the '90s, perhaps the end result of a disappointing string of albums for Columbia during the '80s. He returned to the road in 1997 and evidently it was a positive experience, since he returned to the studio the following year to cut The Feeling's Back. For all intents and purposes, The Feeling's Back is a comeback album, finding Mangione returning to the smooth, melodic style of Feels So Good, but laying off the sappy pop tendencies that dogged his '80s efforts. Although the end result is a little monotonous -- many of the tracks are quiet and slowly swinging, blending together into one long track -- it's charmingly laid-back, mellow and melodic, all of the things that brought Mangione fame and fortune in the '70s. There isn't a whole lot in the way of "real" jazz here -- the solos are extensions of the themes, and they never stand apart from the lite groove -- but this has the "feeling" that Mangione fans have been waiting to feel again. And that's enough to make it a successful comeback.

2005: Harris Eisenstadt - The Soul and Gone Music » Jazz » Modern Jazz » Avantgarde
2005: Harris Eisenstadt - The Soul and Gone Artist: Harris Eisenstadt
Album: The Soul and Gone
Label: 482 Music
Year: 2004; release: 2005
Format, bitrate: mp3, 320
Size: 156 mb
AMG Rating: 2005: Harris Eisenstadt - The Soul and Gone

Harris Eisenstadt's fifth album as a leader features a sextet of young Chicago players and all-star names. The lesser-known names are vibraphonist Jason Adasiewicz, gracefully waltzing through the drummer's complex compositions, and reeds player Jason Mears, who seems too busy keeping up with the score to truly shine. Bassist Jason Roebke has previously proved his worth (in Tigersmilk and the Scott Fields Ensemble, among other projects). Vandermark 5 trombonist Jeb Bishop and Tortoise guitarist Jeff Parker are the most recognizable voices in the group, and live up to the expectations their names stir. Bishop's playing is soulful as ever and downright moving in "Seed," a piece dedicated to composer Henryk Górecki. Parker's dreamy lines steal the spotlight in "Portrait of Holden Caulfield" and remain a defining element of the album throughout. Eisenstadt's writing borrows from post-bop, structured improvisation, and contemporary classical. It is neither Chicago jazz nor West Coast jazz, but something that encompasses both. This album sees him moving deeper into free-form territory, with lots of sections that are not notated but shaped, with varying results. These moments are contrasted with sharply written passages, as in "Kola #2 (Reduction)" and "The Evidence of Absence Is Not Necessarily the Absence of Evidence." The latter is the album's undisputed highlight for its witty complexity, swing, and tight ensemble playing, although "And a Hard Place" makes an excellent contender to the title, with its slow-paced, heavy theme and another dead-on solo from Bishop. Eisenstadt's music is often more melody-based than beat-driven, which is not common among composing drummers. So, by all means, don't approach The Soul and Gone as a drummer's record. Approach it instead as one of the finest American creative jazz releases of 2005.

REPOST by request

The duo of Slim Gaillard and Slam Stewart made many novelty recordings together in the late '30s, with the emphasis on Gaillard's jive vocals utilizing nonsense words he invented, such as "McVouty." "The Flat Foot Floogie" (originally "The Flat Foot Floozie" until the censors stepped in) is their best-known work together; it is an easygoing swing song with nearly indecipherable lyrics. Gaillard plays guitar, piano, and vibes, while Stewart's specialty was singing in octave unison with his bass. They also have a lot of fun messing around with standards of the era like "Chinatown, My Chinatown" and "Oh, Lady Be Good." A live broadcast of "Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen" contains a number of comic references to various foods. On the last five tracks Bam Brown is credited as the bassist, but the time frame given on this CD is wrong and the sound of Stewart's vocals and bass are easily recognizable, so Brown is not present at all. Most of these songs have appeared on various compilations over the years. The novelty wears thin after a few songs, but this music should be a part of any swing fan's collection. ~ Ken Dryden, All Music Guide
1969: Sleepy John Estes- Brownsville Blues Music » Blues
1969: Sleepy John Estes- Brownsville Blues
Artist: Sleepy John Estes
Album: Brownsville Blues
Year: 1969
Label: Delmark
Format, bitrate: Mp3 160 kbps
Time: 46:51
Size: 53 Mb
AMG rating: 1969: Sleepy John Estes- Brownsville Blues

Not to be confused with the Brownsville Blues session that Sleepy John Estes recorded for Delmark in the '60s, this Brownsville Blues is an Austrian release that focuses on the Tennessee bluesman's early recordings for Victor, Decca and RCA/Bluebird. Many blues experts will tell you that Estes did his most essential work before World War II, and they speak the truth. The Tennessee country blues don't get any richer than the 23 selections on this CD, which span 1929-1941 and boast Estes' definitive versions of classics like "Divin' Duck Blues," "Milk Cow Blues," "Married Woman Blues," and "Brownsville Blues." Equally valuable is 1935's "Someday Baby Blues," the gem that became the basis for Big Maceo Merriweather's famous "Worried Life Blues." On these essential recordings, Estes' acoustic guitar playing isn't fantastic -- competent, although not fantastic. But then, one doesn't have to have killer chops to create meaningful music. While Estes was never a great guitarist, he was a compelling storyteller and a most expressive vocalist -- and those qualities make Brownsville Blues a joy to listen to. For those who don't own any Estes albums and are looking for a single-CD collection of his most essential work, Brownsville Blues would be an excellent choice.

2006: Martin Abbuehls and Swing Express  - First Ride

Time: 39:89

Its full steam as the Swing Express offers to travel through the Swiss countryside. With Martin Abbuehl, former violinist of the Hot Strings Fere Scheidegger and Florent Kirchmeyer guitarist Trio Belleville flying train leads a frenzied pace. But other attentionpas TGV high speed train, but the exhilarating pleasure of driving of yesteryear. Swing is in the spotlight but not rushed. The line comes from the Hot Club of the thirties, when the coal was still in force. Correspondence with Django is quite present as six pieces are signed with his name and, for First Ride (listening) composed by Martin Abbuehl the nod to Django and his Mystery Pacific here becomes a successful tribute . A good mood emerges from this cake, a desire to share a good communicative moment. Good road Swing Express!
