AMG Rating: 1951-1956: Miles Davis-Chronicle: The Complete Prestige Recordings 1951 - 1956

This eight-CD set does indeed have all 17 of trumpeter Miles Davis' Prestige sessions. The music is also available in separate CDs in the Original Jazz Classics series. Most significant are the many performances by Davis' classic quintet of 1955-1956 with tenor saxophonist John Coltrane, pianist Red Garland, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Philly Joe Jones but there are also dates featuring Sonny Rollins, Charlie Parker (on tenor), Thelonious Monk, Milt Jackson, Jackie McLean, Lee Konitz, Lucky Thompson, and J.J. Johnson among others. Much of this music is classic and dates from the period when Miles Davis was really beginning to emerge as an innovator.

Rhoda Scott, originally from New Jersey and living in France for most of her 40-year career, is one of the world's most celebrated jazz organists. She was trained classically at the Manhattan School of Music, and as the daughter of a minister she was immersed in the music of the gospel church from a young age. She also studied under acclaimed jazz organist Groove Holmes.
Scott's style combines the precision of classical music, the swinging groove of jazz and blues, and the deep, rich soul of African-American spirituals. She displays a graceful mastery of the Hammond B-3 organ through her impeccable control over the entire instrument and her tasteful use of drawbar registration. One notable aspect of her technique is that unlike many jazz organists who play bass lines with their left hand, Scott uses her left hand to chord and plays her bass lines entirely with her left foot; she also chooses to play with bare feet, another rarity among organists both classical and jazz alike, and has earned the nickname "The Barefoot Lady".
Rhoda Scott is a unique voice in the already obscure realm of jazz organ. Relatively few jazz musicians have adopted the Hammond B-3 as their instrument of choice, which makes a jazz organ performance a special treat for those who appreciate its powerful, dynamic and truly original sound.

1959: Louis Armstrong - Doctor Jazz (Satchmo Plays Kink Oliver) Traditional Jazz, New Orleans Jazz

Format: Flac
Time: 50.4 minutes

A few words of explanation about the description of this CD and what I have done here and why...

"Doctor Jazz" actually consists of a LP recorded in 1959 by Louis Armstrong titled "Satchmo Plays King Oliver" (This recording appeared under the "Audio Fidelity" label - The first and last tracks on this CD was published on an alternate LP titled "Snake Rag". I didn't find any revue for "Doctor Jazz" so I enclose a revue for "Satchmo Plays King Oliver" which I found on the "Feel the Blues with All that Jazz (and More)" web page:

In October 1959, more than four years since his last tribute album (Satch Plays Fats), Louis Armstrong gathered his All-Stars for a session paying homage to King Oliver -- his earliest musical hero and the man who enabled two of his breakout gigs (first in 1918, when he took over Oliver's spot in Kid Ory's band, and later, in 1922, when Oliver summoned him to Chicago to join his own group). Armstrong selected all the material, which ranges from songs with a direct King Oliver connection -- either written by him or played by him -- to a few of Armstrong's period favorites that, he admitted with a sly smile, "Joe [Oliver] might have played." The sextet, including veterans Peanuts Hucko on clarinet and Trummy Young on trombone, relaxes into a perfect New Orleans groove, allowing Armstrong to stretch out to especially good effect on the haunting dirge "St. James Infirmary" -- barely three minutes in its original incarnation as a 1928 Hot Five session but close to five here. Armstrong clearly enjoys taking vocals on songs like "I Want a Big Butter and Egg Man," "Frankie and Johnny," and even "Old Kentucky Home," while the band does him well on Oliver compositions like "New Orleans Stomp" and "Dr. Jazz." The material, originally recorded for Audio Fidelity and available on LPs like The Best of Louis Armstrong and Doctor Jazz (for Blue Moon), made its best appearance on the comprehensive Fuel 2000 release Satchmo Plays King Oliver, the first of the digital era to include both original takes and alternates, all 22 songs that came from the three-day session.

AMG Rating: 1995: John Coltrane - The Heavyweight Champion: The Complete Atlantic Recordings (7 CD)


THE HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION was nominated for a 1996 Grammy Award for Best Historical Album.

The Heavyweight Champion is a box set that lives up to its title. Collecting all of John Coltrane's Atlantic recordings, including a fair number of unreleased takes as well as an entire disc of alternate tracks and studio chatter, the seven-disc box set documents a pivotal moment in Coltrane's career, as he was moving from hard bop and sweet standards to a more daring, experimental style of playing influenced by the avant-garde. Much of the music is hard bop (Giant Steps) or lushly melodic (My Favorite Things), but the latter discs show the saxophonist coming to terms with the more experimental movements in jazz. The scope of this music is, quite simply, breathtaking -- not only was Coltrane developing at a rapid speed, but the resulting music encompasses nearly every element that made him a brilliant musician, and it is beautiful.
~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide

During the 1959-61 period, Coltrane recorded for Atlantic and created some of his most significant work. Every note that Trane made for the Atlantic label is on this seven-CD boxed set which includes the music originally released on such albums as Giant Steps, Bags & Trane (a collaboration with vibraphonist Milt Jackson), Coltrane Jazz, My Favorite Things, Coltrane Plays the Blues, Ole Coltrane, The Avant-Garde, Coltrane's Sound and Alternate Takes. Such classics as Giant Steps, Naima, Cousin Mary, Mr. P.C. and My Favorite Things are among the many highlights. As a special bonus, the seventh CD is comprised entirely of previously unreleased alternate takes including nine new versions of Giant Steps. Sidemen include pianists McCoy Tyner, Hank Jones, Cedar Walton, Tommy Flanagan and Wynton Kelly, trumpeters Don Cherry and Freddie Hubbard and Eric Dolphy on alto and flute.
This very important slice of John Coltrane's musical career is fascinating, historic and innovative. The packaging is perfectly done, making this box essential for all jazz collections.

1941: Charlie Christian After Hours Music » Jazz » Mainstream
1941: Charlie Christian   After Hours
Artist: Charlie Christian
Album: After Hours
Label: OJC/ Fantasy (Limited Edition)
Year: 1941, release: 2000
Quality: MP3@320 kbps
Size: 106 mb
Total time: 51:07

AFTER HOURS is an excellent live document of the early roots of bebop, capturing this exciting music in the process of being built by its pioneering architects. Recorded live in New York City at jam sessions at Minton's Playhouse and Monroe's Uptown House in 1941, these tapes feature young modernists Charlie Christian, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, Kenny Clarke, and Don Byas as they pushed the structural materials of swing toward something new and intense.

Beyond the historical significance of these sessions, however, the music is simply fabulous. There are revisions of "Stardust" and "Stompin' at the Savoy, " but the tunes are mainly blues-based improvisations, with plenty of syncopated play and stretched-out soloing from all involved. Christian's guitar takes center stage--his fluid, fleet-fingered style and mellow amplified tone have become such a stock part of jazz guitar, it is hard to remember that he almost single-handedly wrote the book. Though Gillespie gets double-billing on this set, he only appears on four of the nine tunes, but one can hear early hints of the advanced technical style that would explode in his work with Charlie Parker in the later '40s. This music is truly classic.
