1991: Helen Merrill - Clear Out Of This WorldArtist: Helen Merrill
Album: Clear Out Of This World
Label: Antilles
Recording Date: Jul 31, 1991-Sep 3, 1991
Format: flac, scans

Repost with new links from hungaropitecus

Although Helen Merrill is often thought of as a singer from the 1950s (when she made her initial reputation), she has stayed aware of more recent developments in jazz. On this superior CD, Merrill is accompanied by pianist Roger Kellaway, bassist Red Mitchell and drummer Terry Clarke; three songs add trumpeter Tom Harrell, while two others have Wayne Shorter on tenor or soprano. Whether performing veteran standards (such as "When I Grow Too Old to Dream" and "Some of These Days") or more modern pieces, Merrill's haunting voice and her all-star sidemen uplift and revitalize the material. A consistently memorable set full of subtle surprises.

1992: Ed Blackwell Project Vol.1 - What It Is Music » Jazz » Modern Jazz » Freejazz

1992: Ed Blackwell Project Vol.1 - What It Is
Artist: Ed Blackwell
Album: What It Is
Label: Enja Records
Year: 1992
Format, bitrate: mp3, 320kbps
Time: 61:25

Despite his failing health, Blackwell's skills on his drum kit were razor-sharp when he got on the bandstand for this headliner's gig at the third annual Eddie Moore Memorial Jazz Festival, recorded at Yoshi's in Oakland, CA. just two months before he passed away. Everything clicks -- the band is tight, powered by the supple bass of Mark Helias, while saxophonist/flutist Carlos Ward and trumpeter Graham Haynes play inspired, almost possessed improvs and written lines, bent on giving the audience their best, and Blackwell the proper setting to weave his percussive wizardry. First up are pieces written by Ward. "'Nette," sporting a bright unison horn line, suggests Monk's angularity and Ornette Coleman's interval-leaping vision of expansion. It's a good swinger, with Blackwell in lockstep from the outset. "Pettiford Bridge" is head-nodding in steady swing mode, a soulful bass ostinato informing Coleman-like broken phrases strung together with twine. Ward's alto sax is particularly riveting in its bluesy imaging, and Blackwell offers a patented solo. "Beau Regard," at 13 minutes, is one of the next two compositions worked out by Helias, with a more under-the-surface pacing as Blackwell breaks out in occasional fits and flurries on tom toms, framing a slower swing that buoys Ward's deliciously wafting, darting, mysterioso flute. The bassist strums on "Thumbs Up," with a popping, chattery melody by flute and muted trumpet over a kinetic swing rhythm that shifts to half-speed choogle, cued by Blackwell's cowbell, and back. Ward warms to the task with a most comprehensive solo, all the elements of melody, harmony, rhythm and ethnic slants folded into one; Blackwell's fever induces the band to play the tail section with even more vigor. Ward wrote the final two selections; an inquisitive, dirge-like, brooding sax/trumpet line breaks off into Blackwell's tunefully melodic, boppish mallets on toms for "Mallet Song," while the 12-minute "Rosa Takes a Stand" is another well-swung jam, loose and free with choppy staccato insertions, and a bass solo by Helias cutting him slack alone. This first set is one of two available, and it's the better of the lot. Both are necessary for the Blackwell completist, but this particular volume is his best work as a leader, and a great example of where modern jazz in the '90s landed. A must-buy for all. ~ Michael G.

1996 - Michael Cain - Circa
Artist: Michael Cain
Album: Circa
Label: ECM Records
Year: 1996
Format, Flac
Time: 53:44
Size: 209 mb
AMG rating 1996 - Michael Cain - Circa

Pianist Michael Cain teams up with trumpeter Ralph Alessi and soprano saxophonist Peter Epstein for some unusual trio performances on this ECM CD. The 11 group originals (by Cain and/or Alessi) alternate complex written-out sections with fairly free group improvising. Epstein's soprano and Alessi's trumpet blend together almost as if they were one person playing two horns simultaneously, while Cain's rumbling keeps the music from ever getting too tonal or comfortable. Ranging from what sounds like chamber music (it is often difficult to determine when the musicians are improvising) to stretched-out long tones and heated sections, this episodic and continually intriguing music is never predictable and rewards repeated listenings.

JazzTimes (10/95, p.96) - "...a wonderful surprise....Her singing has...a very natural quality, one that reflects her sunny, generous personality, and she has pretty well perfect pitch....her as distinctive as it is ability to swing rarely rivaled among singers...a style maintained with integrity..."

Of course this Helen Humes album is good, she never recorded a bad one (her very best are "Songs I Like To Sing" and "Swingin' With Humes" both on Origional Jazz Classics) Humes was a great jazz singer with a highly appealing voice, all of her sessions are worth picking up.

There have been several overlapping reissue programs covering the material in the Classics series, especially the many Teddy Wilson recordings in which the pianist accompanied Billie Holiday. This particular CD has Wilson's first five sessions as a leader. He is heard on four fairly rare piano solos from 1934 (a year before he became a member of the Benny Goodman Trio), six other solos from October 7 and November 22, 1935, and on two band dates that resulted in nine numbers (including seven Billie Holiday vocals); the sidemen include trumpeter Roy Eldridge, tenorman Ben Webster, and (on three songs) clarinetist Benny Goodman. Lady Day's "What a Little Moonlight Can Do" and "I Wished on the Moon" are famous classics. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

Drummer Tyshawn Sorey is a very interesting young player. In only a few years, he's made a substantial impact on the East Coast scene, playing with saxophonists Anthony Braxton, Steve Coleman, and Steve Lehman, trumpeters Wadada Leo Smith and Dave Douglas, pianist Vijay Iyer, and many others. As that list of collaborators and employers should imply, Sorey is a cerebral and introspective player whose work frequently eschews traditional swing for a more fractured, impressionistic approach to rhythm and the role of percussion in jazz. And when he's working as a leader, his work sometimes has almost nothing to do with jazz, as this album proves. Koan is performed using guitar, bass, and drums, and the six pieces, three of which are more than ten minutes each, occupy a space somewhere between Bill Frisell and Morton Feldman, with a few hints of recent recordings by Earth thrown in. The guitar and bass ring out, single notes and gently struck chords hanging in the air like coils of smoke as Sorey uses the drum kit as a third melodic device, only rarely attempting to drive the other two players in one direction or another. The music's slow motion twists and turns occasionally recall European improv, but just as frequently hint at chamber music. This is a very beautiful album that seems to open up a little more each time it's played.

George Gruntz Concert Jazz Band. This is a 1983 studio date with 18-piece group. Sheila Jordan singing "No One Can Explain It" is a waterfall of emotion. Lots of Dino Saluzzi on bandoneon, brass heavy. Operatic and soaring.

This well-rounded set features Barney Kessel in prime form and is easily recommended to his fans.

1995: Jerry Bergonzi - Vertical Reality Music » Jazz » BeBop » Post-bop
1995: Jerry Bergonzi - Vertical Reality

Format, bitrate: mp3, 320kbps
Time: 54:31

AMG rating: 1995: Jerry Bergonzi - Vertical Reality

Noted educator and saxophonist Jerry Bergonzi put together an all-star cast for Vertical Reality, sharing the frontline with guitarist Mike Stern. The title of the album may refer to the nature of Bergonzi's playing and arranging in general; his emphasis is on the vertical, harmonic nature of each tune rather than singable lines and enduring melodies. The presence of Stern (five tracks), as well as the strong supporting cast including Andy LaVerne (piano, four tracks), George Mraz (bass), and Billy Hart (drums), all truly make an impact on this recording. Bergonzi is far subtler and more effective in his approach here, creating accessible post-bop while leaving considerable improvisational space for each of the players. Vertical Reality is split between Bergonzi originals and standards principally arranged by LaVerne. Highlights include a hard-edged, Stern-dominated version of Bergonzi's "Jones" and swinging interpretations of "On Green Dolphin Street" and "Lover Man." This is a recommended Bergonzi release.
