The swinging tenor-saxophonist, joined by pianist Roger Kellaway, bassist Chuck Berghofer and drummer Larry Bunker, is seen at the late lamented Dante's in Los Angeles, 1970. The quartet jams on a cooking 'Zoot's Piece' (based on 'Doxy'), a tender 'My Old Flame' and a medium-tempo 'On the Trail.' Sims is in typically brilliant form, Kellaway is particularly creative on a fast blues piece called 'Motoring Along.' Highly recommended and, in its own way, priceless.
~ Scott Yanow, CODA Magazine

This is an attractive souvenir of Los Angeles yesterday. Hampton Hawes appears to good advantage, where the musical atmosphere is cool. He finds the form that distinguished his contemporary trio albums in 'Stella by Starlight.' Ray Brown steals the opening blues, and Bob Cooper also shines on it with Prez-like statements.

1952: Charlie Parker  - Super Session
Artist: Charlie Parker
Album: Super Session
Label: Past Perfect
Year: 1952; release: 2002
Format, bitrate: Flac

Size: 272MB

JAM SESSION was compiled from a 1952 jam session which brought together three of history's greatest alto saxophonists; Parker, Johnny Hodges and Benny Carter, as well as Ben Webster and Flip Phillips on tenor sax. Orchestrated by Norman Granz to come as close to an authentic jam session as possible, this is the first of the Jazz at the Philharmonic series. The album includes an original blues tune ("Jam Blues"), a medley of ballads selected by each musician, and a mellow blues tune called "Funky Blues."

The standard "What is This Thing Called Love," stands out particularly for its follow-the-leader style ending, with each musician trading fours. Interestingly, the meeting of these three greats, with their widely varying styles, results not in spectacular and fiercely competitive playing, but rather in a slight muting and sense of reserve from all three.

By request

An aptly named but stylistically unusual set from soul-jazz vibraphonist Johnny Lytle, 1962's Nice and Easy is a mellow and heavily bop-influenced set fairly far removed from his usual blues-tinged funk. In a quintet setting featuring a rhythm section borrowed from Cannonball Adderley, Lytle trades in his usual organ counterpoint for Bobby Timmons' piano, Sam Jones' typically understated bass work, and Louis Hayes' brushed drums, creating a sound not that far removed from Milt Jackson's sessions as a leader. The secret weapon of the session is tenor saxophonist Johnny Griffin, who takes the majority of the solos (including a surprisingly dissonant and almost free break in the middle of an otherwise restrained take on the standard "But Not for Me"), allowing Lytle to play, well, nice and easy. The results are a welcome change of pace from Lytle's often frenetic and occasionally too-busy style, and the ballad-heavy selection is a nice balance of new tunes and a few familiar standards. Overall, this could well be Johnny Lytle's best set. ~ Stewart Mason, All Music Guide

REPOST with a new link from Mr.jazzamba

This LP, recorded at the 1975 Montreux Jazz Festival, is a festive jam session that features pianist Oscar Peterson, vibraphonist Milt Jackson, guitarist Joe Pass, Toots Thielemans on harmonica, bassist Niels Pedersen and drummer Louie Bellson. The principles have plenty of solo space on two blues, the ballad "Here's That Rainy Day," and the standard "Poor Butterfly." Since these players are competitive in addition to being complementary, some sparks fly as the musicians challenge each other.

AMG rating 1995: Roy Hargrove - Family

This well-rounded set not only features trumpeter Roy Hargrove with his mid-'90s quintet (tenor saxophonist Ron Blake, pianist Stephen Scott, bassist Rodney Whitaker, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson) but with two other rhythm sections and a few special guests. The first three selections (which includes the uptempo blues "Brian's Bounce") are called "Trilogy" and dedicated to various family members. Hargrove shows off his warm tone on "The Nearness of You" (a ballads with strings album was in the near future), and other highlights include the lyrical "Pas de Trois," a duet by Hargrove and bassist Walter Booker on Larry Willis' "Ethiopia," and a driving version of "Firm Roots." A meeting between Hargrove and Wynton Marsalis on the bop standard "Nostalgia" is disappointingly tame, but otherwise this is a high-quality modern hard bop release. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

AMG rating 2003: Matt Bauder - Weary Already of the Way

Chicago-based tenor saxophonist Matt Bauder brought together an impressive lineup for his debut recording, Weary Already of the Way. The sextet includes Todd Margasak and Rob Mazurek on cornets, newcomer Aram Shelton on alto and clarinet, Jeb Bishop on trombone, Jason Roebke on bass, and Fred Lonberg-Holm on cello. Although it was recorded live, the pieces were largely built in the studio, layering and processing the raw material until it resembled the classic electronic and tape compositions of European composers like Bernard Parmegiani(especially his jazz-tape fusion on Pop'eclectic) as much as the ancient to the future Chicago tradition of the Art Ensemble of Chicago and the AACM. The processing is most evident at the beginning of the first piece, although it returns throughout the CD. Even through the gauzy clicking edits and disembodied call-and-response tones of the four nameless pieces on the disc, Bauder's playing is central to the action. His tone is stunning for a relatively young tenor saxophonist, vibrating with hiss and low overtones throughout the album like a less linear Ellery Eskelin. And like Eskelin, although more guarded in his delivery, Bauder has an ear for a good melodic line. At several points there are grand melodic buildups with group arrangements that would make Charlie Mingus proud and Willem Breuker jealous. The rest of the ensemble are no less impressive, with Roebke and Lonberg-Holm locking in for lush, droning chords while Mazurek and Margasak offer up tense staccato signals. Bishop and Shelton serve as anchor between the strings and horns, but with the unusual studio composition techniques involved here and a self-conscious lack of soloing, all the players really do become one, giving way to an almost egoless group sound. Ending with the same pulses that introduce the album, Weary Already of the Way is an impressive debut and while it functions quite well as a whole, if there is any fault to be found here it might be that it tries to tackle too many ideas. Bauder has thrown down quite a heavy gauntlet, one that suggests a plethora of paths that the new leader will hopefully return to explore.

1996: Henry Threadgill & Make a Move - Where's Your Cup? Artist: Henry Threadgill & Make a Move

Downbeat Rating: 1996: Henry Threadgill & Make a Move - Where's Your Cup?
AMG Rating: 1996: Henry Threadgill & Make a Move - Where's Your Cup?

Henry Threadgill's Where's Your Cup?, his last recording for Columbia, is the most recent document of the evolution of a band, a sound - a sonic world that is Threadgill's, and which is in constant flux. The members of Threadgill's ensemble here, Make a Move - Tony Cedras on harmonium and accordion, Brandon Ross on guitars, Stomu Takeishi on electric bass, and J. T. Lewis on drums - will each continue to assert themselves in a variety of imaginative musical contexts. On "Laughing Club," Lewis' drum solo leads us into one of Threadgill's compelling themes, with his searing alto sax blazing the way. And the view is expansive - by century's end, Threadgill had delved deeply into South American, African, and Indian traditions.
JAZZIZ Magazine Copyright 2000, Milor Entertainment, Inc.

Even though Henry Threadgill is often considered "difficult to listen to," most blindfolded listeners would probably find themselves identifying any randomly selected 20-second segment of Where's Your Cup as something a little more mainstream. It wouldn't be unreasonable, for example, to hear Brandon Ross on "The Flew" and ask "Might this be a snot-raunchy John McLaughlin electric guitar solo?" with a good bit of confidence. Someone else may smile smugly and say, "I don't suppose this is from the soundtrack of an especially eerie David Lynch film, perhaps Blue Velvet, or an old episode of Twin Peaks maybe?" when Threadgill's alto sax groove kicks off "100 Year Old Game." Such is the elusiveness of Threadgill's a-bit-of-everything approach to modern jazz, a style-collage sound he achieves here with a lot of help from his band, Make a Move. A majority of the tracks here are over eight minutes long, with a lot of room for soloists to stretch out. Ross can sound like two slabs of grinding sheet metal on one song, and softly strum a flamenco-tinged acoustic guitar behind Threadgill's flute on the next. Alternating between accordion and harmonium, Tony Cedras recalls everything from a Sunday hymn to your local seventh-inning stretch organ grinder. But give the credit of assembling these varied and sundry elements into a consistent product to Threadgill. Where's My Cup has its highly organized moments as well, which possess the same spaced-out mysteriousness as all the clamoring jam-out uproar.

AMG Rating: 1966: Ramsey Lewis  Wade In The Water

With Cleveland Eaton II (bass) and Maurice White (drums) replacing Eldee Young and Red Holt in the trio, Ramsey Lewis alters course just a bit from his handclapping soul-jazz idiom that was so popular at the time. The two new sidemen are relegated more to the background, and some punchy big band charts by Chicago's Richard Evans share the spotlight with Lewis' gospel-blues-drenched piano. Nevertheless, the old swinging fervor is left intact this time, as Lewis and company purvey a set of ten pop hits, with a few others worked in. They even got a large-scale hit (number 19 on the pop charts) out of the old gospel tune "Wade in the Water" (the photo of the tall, pretty model doing so on the cover might have struck some as being sacrilegious). The best cut of the bunch is the hard-swinging, down-home treatment of the Stevie Wonder hit "Up Tight," that got almost as much airplay as the title track. Like The In Crowd, this record evokes its era indelibly. ~ Richard S. Ginell, All Music Guide

Fred Astaire did a classic session with Oscar Peterson for Verve (Clef) back in 1952. In 1963, it was Bing Crosby's turn to re-establish his jazz credentials by doing the obligatory date for Norman Granz. In truth, this is a pretty easygoing session, even if then-hotshot arranger Buddy Bregman wrote his usual hard-swinging charts. But with Bing Crosby, could the results be anything but easygoing? Since jazz vocal expert Will Friedwald's first choice for up-to-date Crosby, 1957's BING WITH A BEAT, is so far unissued on CD, this Gold Disc will just have to do.

Though Crosby's voice does show signs of wear and tear--this is 1963, after all--he breezes his way confidently through a choice set of Great American Songbook classics, including four by Rodgers & Hart. Bing also steals a page from his friend Fred's well-thumbed book by jauntily covering "Cheek to Cheek," "They All Laughed," and "Nice Work if You Can Get It." Highlight: an old-timer's expert timing on Jerome Kern's gently soaring "The Song Is You," once made memorable in the new style by a student of Crosby's named Sinatra.

Label: Blueserge
Year: 2011
Format: MP3 320 kbps
Size: 114 MB

Franco Cerri esordisce nel 1945 nell'orchestra di Gorni Kramer, e collabora in seguito col Gotha del jazz mondiale: Django Reinhardt, Wes Montgomery, Stephan Grappelli, Chet Baker, Gerry Mulligan, Billie Holiday, Barney Kessel, Lee Konitz, Dizzy Gillespie. Questa sua nuova registrazione mostra tutta lʼoriginalità e la vitalità di un musicista curioso e mai banale. Eppure il progetto era rischioso, trattandosi di una rilettura di classici della bossa-nova (soprattutto composizioni di Jobim): da Samba de uma nota so a Estate, da Corcovado a Chega de saudade. Cerri affronta questo repertorio con una formazione inusuale che affianca al suo collaudato combo (Alberto Gurrisi all'Hammond, Salvatore Maiore al contrabbasso ed Enzo Carpentieri alla batteria) il quartetto d'archi italo/nippo/albanese Time Piece. Il CD non corre certamente il rischio del "già sentito" o del lounge-muzak: gli arrangiamenti sono coraggiosi e sofisticati, scritti dallo stesso Cerri insieme a Oscar Del Barba, giovane arrangiatore di ottime frequentazioni accademiche. Il jazz italiano può essere orgoglioso del contributo che Franco Cerri ha dato e continua a dare alla sua nascita e alla sua diffusione; speriamo che i tanti giovani che si affacciano sulla scena imparino la lezione del Maestro: rispettare il pubblico, divertirsi sempre, e amare la musica sopra ogni cosa.~

Year: 1991
Format, bitrate: Mp3, 320kbps
Time: 62:27
Size: 145mb (including scans)

This big-band date by Bob Mintzer from the early '90s utilizes some of the Big Apple's top available musicians of the era, including trumpeters Marvin Stamm and Randy Brecker, saxophonists Scott Robinson and Roger Rosenberg (both of whom double on clarinet), and pianist Phil Markowitz. Mintzer has moved freely between contemporary and mainstream jazz depending on the record date and personnel, but on this DMP release he incorporates a bit from each style. At times that's a problem, because straight-ahead fans will find the smooth jazz-like rhythm section in the standard "Without a Song" rather lame compared to the writing for the brass and reeds. Fortunately, when electric bassist Lincoln Goines is replaced by acoustic bassist Michael Formanek, as in "Christopher Columbus" (where Robinson swings like mad on tenor) and Mintzer's inventive chart of "Easy Living," all is well. The originals are a mixed bag, with the dynamic "Art of the Big Band" and the tricky "Weird Blues" being especially noteworthy.

They may perform folksy acoustic renditions of Jerry Jeff Walker, they may rock out with a pop cover from Cyndi Lauper...but in the end, the jazz comes out in every tune. The Jeni Fleming Acoustic Trio, lead by Jeni's powerful and honest voice, defies easy classification. Capable of delivering Classical and Jazz dichotomies in one breath, breezy folk tunes with a modern twist, and vibrant original pop in another, the Trio is winning the hearts of audiences from coast to coast.

Michel Bedin of the Parisian magazine Jazz Hot calls the group, "a rare elegance...[revealing] a great sensitivity and a beautiful musicality."

The Big Sky Journal remarked that "[after] an evening of this, you're both whipped and exhilarated. You've wiped your eyes, yet your cheeks hurt from all the grinning."

Music, and particularly jazz, knows no borders, and this documentary follows the eminent trumpet great Dizzy Gillespie during a musical tour of Cuba, during which he gets to meet with Fidel Castro and has fun with local dancers and musicians. In concert footage, the balloon-cheeked musician plays A Night in Tunisia and Cubana Bop, among other favorites. In interviews, the musician speaks about his past and the musical compositions which have inspired him.
