1954-1957: Thelonious Monk The Very Best of Thelonious Monk Hard-bop, Post-bop
1954-1957: Thelonious Monk  The Very Best of Thelonious Monk
Artist: Thelonious Monk
Album: The Very Best of Thelonious Monk
Label: Riverside Records
Years: 1954-1957; release: 2012
Format, bitrate: mp3 @ 320 kb/s
Size: 159 MB (with covers)

As part of Concord Jazz Very Best Of series, pianist and composer Thelonious Monk is spotlighted on ten previously released cuts taken from his stints with Prestige and Riverside in the '50s. The ten tracks, aimed at the casual listener, include the modern jazz classics composed by Monk, "Round Midnight," Ruby, My Dear," "Hackensack," "Blue Monk," "Bemsha Swing ," and "Well, You Needn't ." Monk also pays homage to two of his early piano influences, Duke Ellington on his "Sophisticated Lady," and a standard written by Fats Waller and Andy Razaf, "Honeysuckle Rose." Appearing on these various dates are an extraordinary roster of musicians including saxophonists Sonny Rollins, Frank Foster, Gigi Gryce, John Coltrane, and Coleman Hawkins, not to mention Monk's choice of drummers -- those who could do justice to his challenging angular rhythms -- Art Blakey, Max Roach, and Kenny Clarke. This is a decent budget-line collection but the better choice is the double-disc, 21-track compilation The Definitive Thelonious Monk on Prestige and Riverside, which makes a fine companion to The Essential Thelonious Monk, on Blue Note, which spotlights the years 1947-1952, and Columbia's 1962-1968. Keep in mind that all the original albums remain in print as well. ~ Al Campbell, All Music Guide

1979-1984: Jack DeJohnette  Special Edition  Old & New Masters Edition (4CD BoxSet)
Artist: Jack DeJohnette
Album: Special Edition Old & New Masters Edition (4CD BoxSet)
Label: ECM Records
Years: 1979-1984; release: 2012
Format, bitrate: mp3 @ CBR 320
Size: 497.69 MB

Special Edition a band with revolving membership and an incredible cast of soloists including David Murray, Arthur Blythe and Chico Freeman was one of the most sophisticated vehicles for Jack DeJohnettes all-around talents. This set brings together the albums Special Edition (ECM 1152), Tin Can Alley (ECM 1189), Inflation Blues (ECM 1244) and Album Album (ECM 1280), underscoring the excitement of invention and possibility one can hear in this era of DeJohnettes career. The recordings reveal him as an artist in touch with tradition even as he sought the cutting edge of the day, paying homage to his jazz heroes yet experimenting with new sounds. There are echoes of old New Orleans grooves and Swing-era big bands in this collection, as well as material crafted with the techniques of 80s pop singles; there are ambitious suite-like compositions, and there is spontaneously lowdown rhythm & blues.
Recorded 1979-1984 and remastered from original tapes for ECMs Old & New Masters series.

Size: 118 MB (Covers)

An important vehicle aiding in the direction musical polyglot Guillermo Klein s art follows is that both the process and product have meaning. As a bandleader and principal composer/arranger for Los Guachos, Klein is responsible for sustaining a large ensemble of the highest caliber musicians that creates music that is both attractive and unique.

Klein s new recording with Los Guachos, Carrera, proves significant for a number of reasons. This recording is a collection of compositions generated prior to and after Klein s return to his birthplace Buenos Aires from Barcelona, a move that has had a tremendous impact on the composer and his family. The songs on the recording contain strong messages that Klein feels need to be heard. And most importantly, the recording demonstrates the tremendous bond that continues to grow amongst the members of Los Guachos.

The All Art Jazz label initially released music in Japan before hooking up with Jazz Alliance and in the early 1990's making a few sessions available in the U.S. This is a typically fine CD from veteran pianist Hank Jones who, with the assistance of bassist George Duvivier and drummer Shelly Manne (both of whom have plenty of short solos), is heard throughout in top form. The tasteful and swinging trio session is highlighted by "Blue Lou," "Cotton Tail," "Polka Dots And Moonbeams" and "Yardbird Suite." ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

British jazz trombonist Chris Barber celebrates his 62nd year as a bandleader in 2011. Inspired by the King Oliver Creole Jazz Band, Chris formed his first Barber New Orleans Band in 1949 at the age of nineteen. In 1953, along with Monty Sunshine and Lonnie Donegan, he joined forces with Ken Colyer. Then, with the replacement of Colyer by Pat Halcox, Ken Colyer's Jazzmen became Chris Barber's Jazz Band in 1954 and has been one of Europe's most successful traditional jazz bands ever since.

Over the years, Chris Barber's Jazz Band evolved into the Chris Barber Jazz and Blues Band, a richly-textured eight-piece group, blending brass, reeds, and electric guitar into a unique and unmistakable mix of blues and jazz. And despite being 'on the slide' since 1949, having performed over 10,000 concerts and made thousands of recordings, the Chris Barber Band keeps marching on, right into the 21st century. At the end of 2001 Chris extended his band with three more musicians into The BIG Chris Barber Band.
1968: Chris Barber - Live In East Berlin New Orleans Jazz, Ragtime

Album: Live In East Berlin
Label : Black Lion/Intercord
Year: 1968
Format: FLAC (Tracks)
Time: 73:42 mins
Size: 496 MB (with covers)

This concert in East Berlin was recorded in 1968 and issued in 1969 and 1970 on two (East German) Amiga LPs. Later, in 1973, Black Lion/Intercord Records released a double-LP in Western Europe. Thanks to Chris Barber, the two original Amiga LPs were sold at concerts in the Western countries. But the Eastern and the Western versions are not identical - a collector has to have four LPs in order to have all the issued titles from this concert! Another detail: the Amigas show the original line-up of the band at that concert. The Black Lion LP sleeve contains a picture of the band with Steve Hammond on banjo. By the way, these concert recordings are among the first "live" recordings with John Crocker on clarinet and alto sax.

AMG Rating: 1961: Louis Armstrong & Duke Ellington - The Great Summit Complete Sessions

The master takes of this two-CD set have appeared previously on a number of reissues on both LP and CD as a compilation of the original two individual records Together for the First Time and The Great Reunion, but this release easily beats all of the previous issues. Two music legends, Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington, met in the studio for two days in 1961 with Armstrong bringing his group in to play an all-Ellington program and Ellington playing piano. This music has received high praise from numerous critics with good reason; everything seems to fall into place with little effort and a maximum of swinging jazz. It didn't hurt to have former Ellington band member Barney Bigard on clarinet or the equally talented trombonist Trummy Young on the date. Having Armstrong play Ellington's music was a nice change of pace, as the repetitious nature of Satchmo's repertoire in concerts didn't reveal his potential to audiences of the 1950s and 1960s. His newly improvised update of the lyrics to "Drop Me Off in Harlem" got Ellington into a great mood, while both Bigard and Armstrong responded well to Ellington's on-the-spot composition of "The Beautiful American," which closed the first recording session; he also shines on the obscure "Azalea," proving he was a quick study. Armstrong seems very familiar with Ellington's works and his solo on "Black and Tan Fantasy," which had been written in 1927 and recorded many times by a variety of trumpeters in Ellington's orchestra, rivals that of any of them. Bassist Mort Herbert and drummer Danny Barcelona are quite effective in anchoring the rhythm section on a solid foundation. Ellington seems energetic throughout both dates and he is great at providing just the right accompaniment behind the soloists as well as showing off his own chops. What is even more interesting is the addition of the previously unreleased rehearsals, alternate takes, and breakdowns (which are only on this expanded two-CD reissue) as the group worked through each number during the two days of sessions. An additional improvement is the glorious 24-bit remastering that dwarfs the sound of the earlier Mobile Fidelity, Mobile Fidelity Ultra, and Roulette reissues. Dan Morgenstern's informative liner notes and a number of previously unseen session photos add to the desirability of this set. The late producer Bob Thiele should be praised as well for working hard to make these recordings come into being. This landmark reissue should be the part of any jazz collection.

AMG rating: 2007: John McLaughlin - The Essential John McLaughlin

While it would be utterly foolish to consider a two-disc set by guitarist John McLaughlin as anything other than a sample of the wildly diverse career he's enjoyed since the early '60s, it should be noted and underscored that what Legacy does with this set is to provide a solid look at not only the man's gifts but at the way he's employed them, exploited them, and let them get the best of him for the past 40-plus years. There are 23 cuts spread across these discs, and they are cross-licensed from a number of different labels -- this should always be done, and it seems that Legacy is the only shop that does this consistently well. The collection begins at the beginning: way back in 1963 when McLaughlin and his musical partners in crime, bassist Jack Bruce and drummer Ginger Baker, played Sonny Rollins' "Doxy" in the Graham Bond Organisation. The tune swings, even if it is a little stiff, but these were very young cats who were as dedicated to "getting it right" as possible. This gives way to the rather startling contrast of "Spectrum," played as a member of Tony Williams Lifetime with organist Larry Young as well as Williams (and predating McLaughlin's tenure with Miles Davis); there's "Marbles," from his Devotion album where the guitarist and Young played with drummer Buddy Miles. It's an interesting piece where it occurs here because it exists in the gap between McLaughlin's leaving Miles Davis and before playing with the Mahavishnu Orchestra. It's a great cut, but it shines more for Young's work than the leader's. "Right Off," from Davis' Jack Johnson album, is here -- at least a 17-plus-minute edit of it -- and it walks the same basic terrain that "Marbles" does, though it is far funkier and knottier. Rather than just jump into the Mahavishnu territory, McLaughlin's work with saxophonist Joe Farrell and then with Carla Bley is highlighted here as well, spreading the color and texture to the corners a bit more. Already, he was a ten-year veteran of the scene and had become a very diverse member of it. Disc one closes with three tunes from the various early incarnations of Mahavishnu, from the debut Inner Mounting Flame, Birds of Fire, and then on to an excerpt of John Coltrane's "A Love Supreme" with Carlos Santana.But disc one tells the familiar story, despite its ornament and diversity. The place where it begins to stray across many paths seemingly simultaneously is on disc two. While the second incarnation of Mahavishnu is where it begins -- with the cut "Wings of Karma," from Apocalypse -- where the voice and timbre of McLaughlin's insistent muse is making itself heard. The track "India," from 1975 and performed with the Indian trio Shakti (Zakir Hussain, Lakshminarayana Shankar, and T.H. Vinayakram), marks the beginning of an entirely new mode of exploration for the guitarist. And so it goes, through the new technologically savvy, fused-out jazz on Electric Dreams in 1978, the more restrained but no less mechanical Electric Guitarist in 1979 (two tunes including a reading of the standard "My Foolish Heart," which is drenched in it), and the mess that was Trio of Doom with Jaco Pastorius and Tony Williams. This is easily the best cut from that collaboration. There is a track from the Guitar Trio album with Al Di Meola and Paco De Lucia, one from Palle Mikkelborg's Aura experiment with Miles once more, and cuts from Belo Horizonte, recorded for Warner in 1981, and "Wayne's Way," from Industrial Zen in 2006. In other words, the strange back and forth and continuously divergent paths McLaughlin has taken -- for good or ill -- is represented here by many of his finest performances. Even if that assertion is arguable, the one that isn't is that he is one of the most celebrated, widely regarded guitarists in jazz history, and one that helped to change the music forever in the same way that Wes Montgomery and Jim Hall did before him. This may be a smattering, but it is one that will get you on your way to discovering what you want to of his work, while leaving behind the rest.

Label: Apple
Years:1967 - 1968; release: 2003
Quality: mp3 @ 224
Size: 116mb (with covers)
REPOST with a new link from Mr.Gibson L5

A pair of nice Modern Jazz Quartet efforts for Apple on one CD! Under The Jasmin Tree is one of their more interest albums of the 60s. The production's pretty straight, but the group's playing in a cool open-ended style that still has elements of their earlier work, but which really makes things a lot more interesting than some of the Atlantic recordings. Milt Jackson's vibes have a bit more of a bell-like quality on some parts, and the rhythm team of Percy Heath and Connie Kay kick it with a soul jazz vibe on a few numbers a nice change from the sleepier rhythms of earlier albums. Titles include "The Blue Necklace", "Exposure", "Jasmine Tree", and "Three Little Feelings". Space is beautifully spacey workt a record that more than earns its enigmatic title! The session's an odd one but that is also one of the best aspects of the record, as it seems to push the group past the staid third stream sound of some of their 60s recordings for Atlantic, into territory that's a bit more experimental, and concerned with sound, colors, and texture. The album's got 2 incredible originals from John Lewis "Visitor From Mars" and "Visitor From Venus" plus the tracks "Dilemma" and "Adagio From Concierto De Aranjuez". This Apple Records remastered edition also has the bonus previously unerleased version of "Yesterday". (Remastered with bonus track.)

Label: Destin-E Records
Year: 2009
Format, bitrate: Mp3@320 Kbps
Size: 133.93 Mb (Full Artwork)

British reed player Courtney Pine began his professional life in reggae bands, and reggae's "conscious" music tradition has since been a defining feature of his work. Pine plays conscious jazz, in that many of his compositions and recording projects have held a focus on social rights and justice as seen through the prism of the black experience. Sometimes the story has been told with the aid of vocalists; sometimes, as on the exuberant Transition In Tradition, instrumentallythrough track titles, liner notes, sleeve art, and a general referencing of black history.

Transition In Tradition is dedicated the pioneering soprano saxophonist Sidney Bechet, and Pine has woven elements of early New Orleans jazz into the album, along with hard bop, swing and stride piano. The music, characteristically, also includes hefty African and Caribbean retentions. Tempos are mostly up, positivity is a constant.

2005: Courtney Pine - Resistance
Artist: Courtney Pine
Album: Resistance
Label: Destin-E
Year: 2005
Quality: mp3 @ 320
Size: 143.87mb (with scans)

It's almost two decades since Courtney Pine journeyed to the urge within and released a shock-and-awe debut album that put contemporary jazz in the British Top 40 album charts. Nor was this some laid-back jazz-tinged vocal lounge album, either. Pine's debut was a feverish statement of intent, and to anyone around at the time it's still profoundly redolent of the excitement surrounding British jazz's revitalisation. Nothing, since, has distracted Pine from a very personal journey that, with the power of retrospect, looks like a systematic, if whirlwind, tour of his influences & life experiences. Now, with "Resistance", he takes another step forward. ~

2011: Colin Stetson - New History Warfare Vol.2: Judges
Artist: Colin Stetson
Album: New History Warfare Vol.2: Judges
Label: Constellation
Year: 2011
Format: MP3; VBR
Size: 66, 44mb (with covers)

Colin Stetson's 2008 album New History Warfare, Vol. 1 showcased the saxophonist/multi-reedist's phenomenal multiphonic improvisation style and circular breathing technique. Released in 2011, New History Warfare, Vol. 2: Judges features a similar exploratory solo saxophone approach that is nothing short of mind-blowing. Stetson uses the circular breathing style, recorded in single takes and occasionally with overdubs, to create atmospheric and hypnotic loops that sound like layered analog keyboards more than saxophones. In that sense, the tracks here often bring to mind something along the lines of Jean Michel Jarre crossed with Roscoe Mitchell. These tracks allow Stetson to skronk and pulse, wheeze and then soar with white jet-engine noise that is never purposeless and always controlled. Also featured here are a few spoken word sections with avant-garde icon Laurie Anderson -- including the poetic "A Dream of Water" -- that lend a cinematic quality to the proceedings. Elsewhere, vocalist Shara Worden delivers a haunting lead on the spiritual "Lord I Just Can't Keep from Crying Sometimes." Primarily, however, it is Stetson's transcendent and muscular ability to layer sound, breath, and rhythm in a meditative compositional style that sticks with you long after Judges is over. ~ Matt Collar, All Music Guide

Moore first came to prominence as one of the four writer-performers in the ground-breaking comedy revue Beyond the Fringe in the early 1960s, and then became famous as half of the highly popular television double-act he formed with Peter Cook.

His fame as a comedy film actor was later heightened by success in hit Hollywood films such as 10 with Bo Derek and Arthur in the late 1970s and early 1980s, respectively. He received an Oscar nomination for the latter role. He was frequently referred to in the media as "Cuddly Dudley" or "The Sex Thimble", a reference to his short stature and reputation as a "ladies' man".

In August 1962 Atlantic records released an LP entitled "Dudley Moore Plays The Theme From 'Beyond The Fringe' And All That Jazz".

This album consists of eight tracks of some of the best of what I term "soft jazz" to come from the wonderful talent that was Dudley Moore.

During his university years, Dudley Moore took a great interest in jazz and soon became an accomplished jazz pianist and composer. He began working with such leading musicians as John Dankworth and Cleo Laine. In 1960, he left Dankworth's band to work on Beyond the Fringe. During the 1960s he formed the "Dudley Moore Trio" (with drummer Chris Karan and bassists Pete McGurk and later Peter Morgan). Moore's admitted principal musical influences were Oscar Peterson and Erroll Garner. In an interview he recalled the day he finally mastered Garner's unique left hand strum and was so excited that he walked around for several days with his left hand constantly playing that cadence. The trio performed regularly on British television, made numerous recordings and had a long-running residency at Peter Cook's London nightclub, The Establishment.

Many people are completely unaware of the fact that, in addition to being an accomplished actor, Dudley Moore was also an extremely talented jazz pianist and composer. Today released in 1972 is the last studio album by The Dudley Moore Trio. It features both original compositions and cover versions, including a sublime version of The Look of Love. It has never been released on CD.

1969: The Dudley Moore Trio - The Dudley Moore Trio
Artist: The Dudley Moore Trio
Album: The Dudley Moore Trio
Label: Decca
Year: 1969
Format, bitrate: mp3; 320 kb/s
Size: 86,14 mb (with front cover)

This 1969 self-titled album consists of all-Dudley Moore compositions and was the first album by the Trio that did not feature any cover versions. It is a lovely album and deserves to be heard by a bigger audience. There was an outstanding album "Jazz Jubilee" released in 2004 which featured concerts by The Dudley Moore Trio recorded in Australia and England during the seventies. The revenue from this record's sale was, at the time, going to charities supported by Dudley Moore. I don't know if the album is still available, but if you see it, check that the charity rules still apply, and if so, think about buying the album. ~
