The pairing of pianist McCoy Tyner and vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson had them teamed up with firebrands of modern jazz in the '60s, but some 20 years later they made this recording in duet performance with their minds focused on the mellow side. That's not to say their progressive ideas are completely harnessed, but this recording is something lovers of dinner music or late-night romantic trysts will equally appreciate. They play a mix of standards and originals with the genius inventiveness and spontaneous interplay you would expect, while also elongating beautiful melodies that will warm any cold or bitterly emotional situation.

Genre: Jazz, Post-Bop | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Warner Bros. Records (9 46330-2)

As the title suggests, Joshua Redman explores new rhythmic territory on Freedom in the Groove. Abandoning the traditional hard bop that has dominated his past recordings, Redman attempts to work himself into hip-hop and urban dance rhythms, which results in an occasionally intriguing but often frustrating album. Occasionally, the fusions work, with Redman contributing sympathetic, graceful licks to the gently insistent rhythms. Too often, the record sounds forced and stilted, which is unfortunate, since jazz/hip-hop fusion need a musician of Redman's caliber to make it credible in the jazz world.

The first in a series of various artist compilations, alongside more in-depth artist focused releases, Virtual Dreams will delve into music produced during the 1990’s that redefined the boundaries of ‘Ambient’. This was music that explored the possibilities of Ambient within a new setting, created often by House and Techno producers for a world beyond dance floors but made very much with the pre-clubbing and post-clubbing listener in mind.

The story of Cast begins in 1978 when the first golden era of Progressive Rock was agonizing, when the keyboardist Alfonso Vidales had the idea of creating a Rock band that blended Symphonic passages in order to keep his beloved Prog alive. Very little information can be found about the first 16 years of their existence, until 1994 when "Landing in a Serious Mind" is self released, an album that presents us a serious Symphonic band with an original sound.
1994 and 1995 are years of great activity for Cast, the band releases 5 albums. After two more albums and three years, the band signs with Musea for the release of "Imaginary Window" in 1999, an album that shows us a band that leaves behind the few Neo Prog leanings to embrace fully the Symphonic genre…

Carmen McRae, a good friend of Thelonious Monk, sang 13 of his songs (two of which are also heard in different live versions) on this memorable project. Half of the lyrics are by Jon Hendricks, while the remainder were written by Abbey Lincoln ("Blue Monk"), Bernie Hanighen, Sally Swisher, or Mike Ferro. On all but the two concert performances, McRae is assisted by tenor saxophonist Clifford Jordan, pianist Eric Gunnison, bassist George Mraz, and drummer Al Foster; Mraz's solos are particularly impressive, although everyone is in sensitive form. The live recordings give listeners two more chances to acknowledge the uniqueness of tenor saxophonist Charlie Rouse's tone…

Pino and Wildjamin align themselves with FAX's direction of veering away from heavy synth based trance to slower more melodic and rather original electronica. Picking up from them last track of Xangadix, the remarkably warm and emotive pieces set The MS-Series apart from the duo's other works as their most essential. "Monochill" and "Voltage Control" are rich examples of how ambient and trance are combined to transcend what either of the two genres are capable of.

I don't remember where I picked up this hard to find CD, it might have been in Cambridge, MA. I don't know much about the release other than it contains the first two volumes of a 3 LP box set of the same name. Some sources I have seen indicate that it is a bootleg. The tracks are a mix of live BBC recordings, unreleased acetates, and rare versions of British sixties psychedelic classics. Many of the tracks have now resurfaced as part of recent artist-centred compilations but at the time I had heard very few of these tracks. The liner notes are sparse and simply provide a few words about the origin of each track, Pink Floyd on the front cover and Eddie Phillips of the Creation on the back cover. The sound is so-so but listenable considering the varied sources. A good cross-section of psych acts of the period. Originally released in 1990 as a box of 7" singles, this CD features rare singles; radio sessions and tracks previously officially unreleased.

Only 22 at the time of this CD, Nicholas Payton had already quickly developed into a major trumpeter. Possessing a fat tone that is sometimes reminiscent of Freddie Hubbard, by the mid-'90s Payton had become New Orleans' latest significant contribution to jazz. On his second Verve release, Payton interprets and modernizes ten songs associated with his hometown and/or Louis Armstrong. Fortunately, Payton generally retains the flavor and joy of the original versions, even while he transforms much of the music into hard bop. To cite a few examples, "Whoopin' Blues" has parade rhythms, send-offs worthy of Lionel Hampton, and boppish solos, "Way Down Yonder in New Orleans" is taken as a slow and lightly swinging ballad, and "I Gotta Right to Sing the Blues" is turned into a jazz waltz…

His skills of music production are based on styles like electronic Soundtracks, Downbeat, Ambient, Chill Out, Deep House, Future Jazz, Lounge, or Easy Listening.
