Sublime early work from Stan Getz — a lyrical genius even at this early point in his career ! There's a subtle brilliance here that's undeniable — a tenor sound that draws from Lester Young and Ben Webster, but which pushes into fresh new territory for the 50s — lean, but still very soulful at the core — a blend that none of Stan's contemporaries could ever match this well ! The album features a group that includes a very young Bob Brookmeyer on valve trombone, plus rhythm by Teddy Kotick, John Williams, and Frank Isola. Tracks are longish and easily swinging — and Getz's tone, as always, makes the whole thing come together like magic!

Joel Harrison - The Other River (2017)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 50:56 | 117 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Whirlwind Recordings

'The Other River' is a personal and striking collection of original songs written, arranged and sung by veteran US guitarist and singer/songwriter Joel Harrison, and follows his acclaimed quintet release on Whirlwind - 'Spirit House'. Whilst it bears some of Harrison's trademark compositional moves, this album - his eighteenth - may come as something of a surprise to his many, established jazz followers. The project's focus is very much its lyrical, unfettered storytelling conveyed through stripped-down music - unabashed Americana modelled on the work of Paul Simon, Leonard Cohen, and Robert Hunter - which reaches out to the heart in candidly dealing with mortality and loss, redemption and forgiveness. "I came to this music because I had to", says Harrison. "There were things I was going through that made me yearn for a new level of honesty and bare-bones truth-telling. Words seemed to be the way forward. Instrumental music couldn't pierce these regions in the same way". Joel Harrison's core ensemble all share a love of jazz, country, R&B and gospel, which can be heard in the stylistic multiplicity of their approach to these eleven numbers.

Two years after his latest trio album with David Reinhardt and Jean-Baptiste Laya, Christian Escoudé is back in the beginning of 2010 with a rich and varied album, recorded with the cream of jazz musicians: David Reinhardt and Jean-Baptiste Laya on guitars, Anne Paceo on drums, Darryl Hall on acoustic bass, Thomas Savy on clarinets and whiz kid Fiona Monbet on violin. A high-level rhythm section, clarinets' solos worthy of a classical soloist, a violin filled with emotion, meticulous arrangements, a beautiful production, a splendid acoustic sound accompanying Christian Escoudé's very inspired guitars, giving this album a very special flavour. The spiritual father of the whole new generation of guitarists, Christian offers here a light and yet very intense album, reminding us he is one of Django's most worthy representative. Long live the young at heart!

Jazz / Cool / Piano

This fascinating date features pianist Ahmad Jamal at the beginning of his recording career. With guitarist Ray Crawford and either Eddie Calhoun or Israel Crosby on bass, Jamal showcases a style that would be a major influence on Miles Davis' music. Jamal's use of space and dynamics was very different than the style of any other jazz pianist of the era. His versions of "Old Devil Moon," "Will You Still Be Mine?," "The Surrey with the Fringe on Top," and "A Gal in Calico" inspired Miles to record the songs in a similar fashion, and his "Billy Boy" became the basis of a performance by the Red Garland Trio. Most fascinating is Jamal's inventive interpretation of "Pavanne," for it has a section very reminiscent of "So What" (which was not "composed" by Davis until over two years later) and a melody statement that is exactly the same as John Coltrane's "Impressions."

Micky Moody has worked alongside some of the greatest singers in the business, including Paul Rodgers, David Coverdale, Frankie Miller, Roger Chapman, Eric Burdon, Chris Farlowe and Graham Bonnet. As a studio musician he has recorded for the likes of Meat Loaf, Sheena Easton, Ben E. King, Mike Oldfield, Gerry Rafferty and many more. So it is of some interest that he has written and produced an album of guitar instrumentals. A definite case of "let the fingers do the talking" (or in this case, the singing!) 'Electric Journeyman' features twelve tracks that capture Moody's rock/blues/funk/jazz influences.

As volume 1 of the series "The Jazz Guitar Trio" is recovered a disc recorded 5 years ago by Ximo Tébar: "Hello Mr. Bennett". There are several reasons why this album, the relaxed atmosphere of a jazz club (in this case the infamous Cafe Populart in Madrid), the role of the master of the organ Lou Bennett, and the outstanding presence of the blues (Which opens and closes the disc), a language that few dominate like Ximo and Lou knew its most pure essences.

Since his emergence onto the New York scene in 1959, pianist Harold Mabern has become one of the few true living jazz stylists on the piano. Having played with everyone from Lionel Hampton to Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Wes Montgomery, and Lee Morgan, Mabern has the experience and the depth of knowledge sufficient to be called a master. There is no one on the scene who sounds like him, and his sense of lyricism, rhythm, time, and the entire range of dynamics in his playing attract other players as well as listeners. The Leading Man, issued in 1993, is considered a classic, both for its selection of material and the performances of the various ensembles Mabern assembled for the date…

Jazz / Post-Bop / Violin

Violinist Didier Lockwood tackled a formidable task by dedicating an entire CD to the legendary violinist Stephane Grappelli, who died just shy of his 90th birthday in December, 1997. Although Grappelli's influence on his playing is obvious at times, he is no carbon copy. He generally has a darker tone and doesn't use nearly as many up-tempo runs. With two brilliant partners, bassist Niels Pedersen (who worked with Grappelli on a few dates) and guitarist Birelli Lagrene, Lockwood does a credible job.

Although critics will argue over the merits of his work, there is no denying that Serge Gainsbourg is one of the most fascinating figures in French popular music. He is best-known on this side of the Atlantic for "Je T'aime Moi Non Plus," a breathy duet with Jane Birkin whose slick, sensual soft rock melody won over many a listener (Birkin's convincingly acted moans of pleasure made it fairly scandalous).

Already a Polish episode of his activity - relatively distant in time - announced a non-special artist.

The music on this excellent album was created by a highly combustible trio consisting of Ken Vandermark on tenor saxophone and clarinet, Mark Tokar on bass and Klaus Kugel on drums and percussion. This album was recorded at the Alchemia Club in Krakow in May of 2016 and begins with "13 Lines" which blasts hard right out of the gate, with Vandermark's expressive saxophone holding court with the elastic bass and drums. They proceed into an epic blowout of collective improvisation, moving massive slabs of sound and developing a hypnotic gaze.

Trevor Dunn's Trio-Convulsant is back for their second album, although with a completely different lineup (besides Dunn, of course). Adam Levy and Kenny Wollesen are gone, replaced by Mary Halvorson on guitar and Ches Smith on drums. The music they play is not so much a fusion of styles as it is a collision of styles. Almost straight-ahead jazz noodling gives way to hardcore blasts and crunching power chords, then completely devolves into Derek Bailey territory, but the band is always together. You can tell that some of it is quite composed, and that other sections are most likely entirely improvised.
