The Finnish blues artist Pepe Ahlqvist will be known to many European blues lovers as he has been active since the early seventies and made some excellent records along the way! Though many will recall him as a singer and harmonica player, here he has dropped the harp and taken up his first instrument, the guitar – and how! Not that he is a flashy player – far from it, but the notes he chooses are just right – quality over quantity. The Umo Jazz Orchestra are the kind of outfit all too rarely heard these days, a big, swinging and genre hopping outfit, akin to the Ray Charles Orchestra at its best, or Gil Evans Band (think particularly when they worked with Cleanhead Vinson). Pepe sings well in a variety of styles, from the swinging jump-blues of the opener to the blues-rcoing cover of BB King’s ‘So Excited’ that closes the set – in between there are soul numbers, a variety of blues styles, some wonderful modern(ish) jazz with a cover of Horace Silver’s ‘Senor Blues’, funk via ‘Dancemaster’ and even the almost jazz-meets-rap of ‘T’s And B’s’. This kind of big band blues comes along all too rarely, which means it is invariably worth listening to – and this release is sheer class.

A live recording of Finnish big band UMO Jazz Orchestra and sax legend Michael Brecker (1949-2007), 'Live in Helsinki 1995' has never been released before. The record features compositions by Michael Brecker, Horace Silver, Vince Mendoza and Kirmo Lintinen, among others, with styles ranging from bebop to funk and ballads. "The most treacherous position in jazz, was being the guy on the bandstand who has to take a solo right after Mike Brecker." - Pat Metheny

This is a polished orchestra with it's feet firmly in the jazz camp. Check out the misleadingly named opening track, "Frozen petals" with it's Breckeresque tenor saxophonists and storming section work to get an impression of what this band is capable of.Clever re-workings of jazz standards, latin, mainstream arrangements, atmospheric tone poems and eclectic jazz-rock. Imagine a more experimental BBC Big Band on testerone and you have some idea what is one offer.

This collection of hit songs from the middle of the 20th Century is sure to tickle the nostalgic fancy of baby boomers. However, the jazz-infused arrangements and virtuosic instrumental solos will appeal to jazz and popular song fans of all ages. Even as more jazz musicians are stretching the meaning of The Great American Songbook, to take hit ballads by one-name rockers like Sting, and Clapton and iconic bands like The Beatles, The Eagles and Steppenwolf and make them your own in a contemporary jazz context is not an easy feat.

Soul-Jazz, Smooth Jazz, Contemporary Jazz | 1:35:09 | Mp3, 320 kbps | 217 MB
Label: High Note Records | Year Of Release: 2008

2008 two CD set. You don't have to imagine any image of the mellow and full voices of Jazz divas. Just open your ears and enjoy it with ease. The four-dimensional floatation of electronic particles insinuates and creates the vivid appearances for the improvisation sound in modern times. Nu-Jazz Divas takes perfect interpretation of voices and extraordinary recording quality as main considerations and displays the absorption and remake of traditional Jazz in electronic generation. The two CDs contain the nuances between "Happy Hour" and "After Hour".
