This one is a bit unusual since the trumpeter is accompanied by David Friedman (on vibes and marimba), bassist Buster Williams and drummer Joe Chambers. The music (which includes two takes of "3+1=5") is somewhat challenging ("The Song Is You" is the only standard) and it inspires Baker to come up with some lyrical statements. There are many Chet Baker recordings from his final decade and his true fans will want to pick up this one. ~ AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

Creating a distinctive voice and approach on a musical instrument is as difficult as it is rare. Guitarist Ben Monder has long been admired for his personal sound, remarkable command of the guitar, and stylistic versatility. His new recording, Day After Day (a two disc set), provides a look at two distinct sides of his artistic nature, the highly analytical, structural side and the more freely improvisational side, through a series of interpretations of cover material.

Alone Together, is Grammy winning vocalist Catherine Russell’s seventh studio album as a leader. As with her previous albums, Catherine’s finds songs from the great artists of the past that particularly connect with present times, and manages to give them a modern spin. Selecting tunes which first emerged during the Swing Era, Catherine’s renditions are given birth in the recording studio by the core musicians of her touring band for the past decade. On Alone Together, Catherine Russell’s curatorial skills shine brightly, plucking compositions where the lyric and harmonic structure draw her in on a deeply personal level. The listener invariably is seduced by her interpretive wiles.

The double album JAPANESE BLUE and HAMAR RAILWAY STATION / HAMAR STASJON is a significant achievement in the career of Silje Nergaard, marking her 30th anniversary as a singer and composer. On it, she has space to reconsider and reframe her hits and best known songs and on the second record, she digs deep with a concept album inspired by her childhood memories of her Norwegian hometown Hamar. It’s an ambitious undertaking from an artist whose restless creativity has kept her at the top of her profession ever since her first release, TELL ME WHERE YOU‘RE GOING — featuring Pat Metheny on guitar — became an international best seller in 1990.

The Andrews Sisters came on the scene in 1938 with Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen, and closed out their era (early fifties) with the dreamy balled, I Can Dream Can't I? and the monster smashes in between with Rum and Coca-Cola and Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy to name just a few. Their blissful passion shines on through in this 4 disc collection of some of their most popular tunes. Disc One and Two are all their Top Ten hits in chronological order. Disc three and four are full of rare tunes that are also quite enjoyable. You can't listen to these tracks and not tap your feet and sing along.

When Lonnie Liston Smith left the Miles Davis band in 1974 for a solo career, he was, like so many of his fellow alumni, embarking on a musical odyssey. For a committed fusioneer, he had no idea at the time that he was about to enter an abyss that it would take him the better part of two decades to return from. Looking back upon his catalog from the period, this is the only record that stands out - not only from his own work, but also from every sense of the word: It is fully a jazz album, and a completely funky soul-jazz disc as well. Of the seven compositions here, six are by Smith, and the lone cover is of the Horace Silver classic, "Peace"…

Although Coltrane only recorded one proper album for Blue Note (Blue Train), he is credited as a sideman on several dates for the venerable jazz label. This disc paints the picture with two numbers from Blue Train (the title track and "Locomotion") and cuts from dates with Paul Chambers ("Just for the Love" from 1956's Whims of Chambers), Johnny Griffin ("Smoke Stack" from 1957's Blowin' Session), and Sonny Clark (the title track from 1957's Sonny's Crib). Rounded out by an early side with McCoy Tyner ("One and Four") and a sample from Coltrane's only meeting with Cecil Taylor (Kenny Dorham's "Shifting Down"), Trane's Blues will no doubt be of interest to fans looking beyond the tenor great's extensive Prestige, Atlantic, and Impulse! catalogs.

As a longtime staff arranger for Liberty Records, Bob Florence wrote some of the most innovative and challenging charts in postwar jazz - in many respects a man out of time, he possessed a particular brilliance for large-ensemble arrangements in the tradition of Duke Ellington, although the commercial vogue for big-band jazz had long since passed.
Over the years the group (dubbed the Limited Edition in 1982) served as a launching pad for a number of first-call L.A. session players, and in 2000 the LP Serendipity 18 won the Grammy for Best Jazz Performance by a Large Ensemble. Florence died of pneumonia on May 15, 2008, two weeks shy of his 76th birthday.
