Arne Domnérus ‎: Jazz At The Pawnshop Vol.1
Arne Domnérus ‎: Jazz At The Pawnshop Vol.1
Label:Proprius ‎– PRCD 7778 Format:CD, Album, Reissue Country:Sweden Released:2005 Genre:Jazz Style:Swing   This is the first of four CD volumes that fully document a legendary engagement at the Pawnshop club in Stockholm, Sweden. Featured are Arne Domnerus (doubling on alto and clarinet), pianist Bengt Hallberg, vibraphonist Lars Erstrand, bassist Georg Riedel and drummer Egil Johansen. They mostly stick to swing standards, recalling the groups of Benny Goodman and Lionel Hampton. Highlights include a heated "Limehouse Blues," the African folk song "High Life," "Lady Be Good" and Coleman Hawkins's "Stuffy." All of the volumes in this series are well worth getting by straightahead jazz fans, particularly those not familiar with Arne Domnerus's excellent playing.

Art Farmer : Portrait of Art Farmer
Art Farmer : Portrait of Art Farmer
What can I say, vintage Farmer with his blessed flugelhorn is about as good as it gets. For the purists, I strongly recommend this collection. Very well recorded.

Art Pepper : Art Pepper Meets The Rhythm Section
Art Pepper : Art Pepper Meets The Rhythm Section
Art Pepper, alto sax; Red Garland, piano; Paul Chambers, Bass; Philly Joe Jones, drums. Album notes don't always tell the whole story. Contemporary president Les Koenig, who rightly felt that Art had yet to record with musicians who were his equal, wanted to take advantage of Miles Davis's quintet being in L.A. But Pepper hadn't been playing for several months, and his horn was in a state of disrepair. To minimize anxiety, the session was kept secret from Art until the last minute. But Pepper always rose to a challenge: he taped to his dried-out cork, arrived for the date, and proceeded to record an album widely considered the most important of his career. This is an all tube recording from the microphones' to the tape machine.

Bill Evans : New Jazz Conceptions
Bill Evans : New Jazz Conceptions
A significant date in the history of legendary pianist Bill Evans' recording career, New Jazz Conceptions marks his maiden voyage as a leader and finds the then 27-year-old pianist already sounding much different than the usual Bud Powell-influenced keyboardists of the time. Recorded in 1956, more than a year before he joined the Miles Davis Sextet, this set finds Evans flashing his own unique chord voicings in a lyrical, swinging style.

Bill Evans : Waltz For Debby
Bill Evans : Waltz For Debby
Recorded at the Village Vanguard in 1961, shortly before Scott LaFaro's death, Waltz for Debby is the second album issued from that historic session, and the final one from that legendary trio that also contained drummer Paul Motian. While the Sunday at the Village Vanguard album focused on material where LaFaro soloed prominently, this is far more a portrait of the trio on those dates.

Bill Evans Trio : How my heart Sings!
Bill Evans Trio : How my heart Sings!
Recorded in May and June of 1962, at the same time as the Moonbeams sessions, How My Heart Sings shows a different side of the Bill Evans Trio than that all-ballads album. Here, the eight selections have a much more mid- and even up-tempo flair. Israel appears more comfortable in these settings to be sure, as he is the kind of bassist that relegates himself deeply into the rhythm section, sublimating himself to the pianist. In Evans' own words, the band's desire was to "provide a more singing sound" in this material.

Eden Atwood : Waves – The Bossa Nova Session
Eden Atwood : Waves – The Bossa Nova Session
Eden Atwood has a voice that is many things -- seductive, plaintive, sensitive, gifted with perfect intonation and phrasing, and entertaining. Her CD collection, Waves: The Bossa Nova Sessions, is refreshingly original in scope and presentation, each song a moving invitation to the audience to share the beauty of the bossa nova sound.

Ella Fitzgerald . Joe Pass : Take Love Easy
Ella Fitzgerald . Joe Pass : Take Love Easy
AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow Ella Fitzgerald and guitarist Joe Pass teamed up in a set of duets for this album which has been reissued on CD. Because the emphasis is on ballads and not all of the songs are that well suited to Fitzgerald's musical personality (particularly "Lush Life" and "I Want to Talk About You"), this set is only a mixed success. Much more successful are "Don't Be That Way" and "A Foggy Day" but this is not one of the more essential Ella Fitzgerald records.

Horace Parlan Quintet : Speakin’ My Piece
Horace Parlan Quintet : Speakin’ My Piece
AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine Horace Parlan had a gift for relaxed, swinging hard bop which placed his piano in a central, yet unassuming role. Speakin' My Piece is one of the first albums to find Parlan getting all the ingridients right, from his own subtle playing to soliciting fine contributions of his backing band.
