Any time the likes of Stanley Clarke, Al DiMeola and Jean-Luc Ponty are assembled, there is a good chance the results are going to be impressive. Clarke and DiMeola had played together in the legendary Return to Forever, producing some of the most intense playing in all of fusion; Jean-Luc Ponty had also made several excellent, very diverse recordings…

The Gitanes label has taken it upon itself to reissue on CD some of the late work of gypsy jazz giant Django Reinhardt. The tracks that make up Nuits de Saint-Germain des-Prés come from three Decca sessions dating from May of 1951 to January 1953, the final year of his life. The title comes from the reopening of the infamous club Saint-Germain des-Prés, whose reopening coincided with Reinhardt showing off his bop chops to a host of notable American jazzmen, including Benny Carter, Roy Eldridge, Charlie Parker, Don Byas, and others. The bands on all of these sessions are comprised of Young Turks, most notably a youthful Pierre Michelot on bass. The other constants are drummer Pierre Lemarchand and Hubert Fol on clarinets and saxophone; the latter's brother Raymond is the pianist on two of these sessions…

Jonathan Butler's 22nd studio album, 2014's Living My Dream, showcases the South African-born singer/guitarist/songwriter's distinctive smooth jazz and R&B sound. Joining Butler here are such musical luminaries as bassist Marcus Miller, saxophonist Elan Trotman, guitarist/songwriter Dennis Dodd, Jr., and Butler's daughter, vocalist Jodie Butler, who duets with her father on "Night to Remember." Featured on the album is the song "Be Still," which Butler co-wrote with George Duke prior to the legendary keyboardist's passing in 2013. Also included is the leadoff single "African Breeze," originally written for the 1985 adventure-comedy Jewel of the Nile and reworked with a more contemporary flair by Butler for Living My Dream.

The late 50's were a prime period for Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, and in 1958 this group features emerging stars trumpeter Lee Morgan, Benny Golson on tenor and pianist Bobby Timmons, and the 1958 version of The Jazz Messengers was widely recorded during their stay in Euroupe, so this CD contains some of the better uptempo arrangements in the Blakey book as I Remember Clifford, Along Came Betty, Moanin' and Whisper Not. Hard bop at its best, and all of them propelled by the powerful drumming of Art Blakey.

Born in Toronto, Ontario, Lewis started playing drums at age 2 and was first introduced to drums in church. This is where he began to learn to play a variety of styles including gospel music, soca, calypso, reggae, zouk and funk. He also studied electric bass and piano to further his knowledge of the melodic and harmonic aspects of music making. Lewis’ parents were originally from St. Kitts and Nevis in the Caribbean.

Some musicians experience a sacred and deeply intimate relation with their art. When a 19-year-old Dhafer Youssef discovered Indian music in Vienna, where he was studying classical music, it had the effect of a bewildering epiphany on him.

Luego de un largo silencio discográfico, Alan Plachta presenta a su nueva banda, La Cocina Magnética, que también le da nombre al álbum. Música de desarrollos sutiles, permite disfrutar nuevamente de la fantástica voz de Lucía Boffo, a la par de instrumentistas notables. Alan Plachta, músico inquieto, compositor, productor, docente, guitarrista (y en este disco también pianista), se siente a sus anchas en el formato grupal. Sus anteriores discos, Ingrid y Un viaje, fueron así: el primero como parte del cuarteto del mismo nombre; el segundo, compartiendo composición y liderazgo con Richard Nant al frente de un sexteto neoyorquino. Desde enero de 2016, fecha de salida de Un viaje, que no ofrecía una novedad discográfica, y ahora lo hace con un proyecto que si bien lleva su nombre lo hace como parte de una nueva experiencia en conjunto.

This album documents drummer Buddy Rich's bout with what were contemporary trends in jazz and pop music during the year 1980. Operating in a groove similar to that of Maynard Ferguson's high-voltage big band, Rich and Co. churned out exciting music that went over well with the crowd at Ronnie Scott's jazz club in London, England. The leader of the reeds, and this band's featured soloist, was tenor and soprano saxophonist Steve Marcus. Don Menza's ultra-funky "Beulah Witch" and Bob Kaye's "Grand Concourse" have that beefed-up, big city big-band feel that was so prevalent during the '70s and '80s. The rest of the tunes on this album were composed by baritone saxophonist Bob Mintzer. His "Blues a la 88" is finely wrought and superbly executed…

Brotherly Love is "Brother" Jack McDuff's final recording session, and features Red Holloway and Pat Martino, both of whom were integral members of his popular '60s group. Recorded just months before his sudden death in 2001, McDuff pulls out all the stops on nine great tracks with phenomenal Hammond B-3 artistry. Two bonus tracks feature previously unreleased material that spotlights McDuff with his protégé, Joey DeFrancesco, sharing in the brotherly love.

It's a fine sampling of Ellington's most familiar melodies and works as a good introduction for novices.

John Fahey was well known as a perfectionist who played concerts for over two decades without releasing a live album. It was therefore something of a surprise when he not only recorded a full album in front of an audience, but did so at a concert booked on four days notice, at a hall he had never seen much less checked for acoustics, and with almost all material written on the spur of the moment. Fahey hadn't even planned on visiting Tasmania, but during an Australian concert tour he got drunk on an airplane flight and decided on the spur of the moment that he wanted to record an album there.

This album was originally released in 1988 as "Bobby McFerrin - Don't Worry, Be Happy". Vocal virtuoso Bobby McFerrin ranks among the most distinctive and original singers in contemporary music – equally adept in jazz, pop, and classical settings, his octave-jumping trademark style, with its rhythmic inhalations and stop-on-a-dime shifts from falsetto to deep bass notes often sounds like the work of at least two or three singers at once, while at the same time sounding quite unlike anyone else.

Smooth jazz stalwarts the Rippingtons infuse their trademark brand of instrumental pop with a Latin aesthetic on Wild Card. Once again featuring the lead guitar of Russ Freeman, the Rippingtons deliver a solid collection of mellow contemporary pop and lite jazz that should please longtime fans. Evenly split between R&B-inflected cuts such as the Aretha Franklin hit "Till You Come Back to Me" and Latin tracks including the flamenco-inspired "Spanish Girl" and the salsa-ready "Mulata di Mi Amor," Wild Card is a pleasant listen.

Arguably, this is as much Lalo Schifrin’s album as it is Dizzy’s, in that the gifted young Argentinian pianist wrote and arranged this extended work in 1958, when aged just 26. But, it would take another two years before someone pressed the record button. While on some mid-1950s recording sessions, Dizzy didn’t always extend himself, Gillespiana proves quite the reverse.
