Trombonist Mauro Ottolini's diverse and multifaceted world completely unravels in this album; a maze of exciting and compelling sounds where, in the lucid madness of his band Sousaphonix, complete fulfilment is found. "The Sky Above Braddock is a limbo, where one finds lost and forgotten souls. The music in this album was inspired by a short story I read about a borough of Pittsburgh, Braddock. It sweetly and subtly intoxicated my artistic vein… A thrilling provocation." (M. Ottolini)
Joe Bourne - Upbeat and Sweet: Jazz Infused Classic Rock & Pop Songs (2017)

Joe Bourne - Upbeat and Sweet: Jazz Infused Classic Rock & Pop Songs
Vocal Jazz | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 49:53 min | 114 MB
Label: Summit Records | Tracks: 12 | Rls.date: 2017

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.

Little Feat were on Warner Bros Records from 1971's Little Feat through 1990's Representing the Mambo, but for a full decade of those 20 years, the band was inactive. …these albums have the songs and sensibility that built their legacy, which does include their remarkably successful return in 1988. All the albums are presented as mini-LPs and the set is affordable, making this a very appealing bargain for all kinds of Feat fanatics.

My absolute favorite Black Jazz album was Infant Eyes, by pianist Doug Carn and his wife, Jean Carn. The record had a sensual, powerful feel. What made the album a hit were the soulful lyrics the Carns crafted for jazz standards such as Bobby Hutcherson's Little B's Poem, Wayne Shorter's Infant Eyes, John Coltrane's Acknowledgment from A Love Supreme, and Horace Silver's Peace. Doug's arrangements and Jean's searing, passionate vocals gave the album a distinctly 1970s African-American feel.

Jazz, Folk, World, & Country | 01:05:53 | Mp3, 320 kbps | 152 MB
Label: Heavenly Sweetness | Year Of Release: 2015

Nouvelle compilation “Kouté Jazz”, 12 titres de jazz antillais sélectionnés par Digger’s digest, sortie le 25 septembre (digital,CD,LP).
Le jazz et les Antilles, c’est une vieille histoire, dont on trouve traces dès les premiers enregistrements. D’Alexandre Stellio à Jean-Claude Montredon, d’Al Lirvat à Marius Cultier, de Jacques Coursil à Mario Canonge, la liste est longue de ceux qui ont établis une connexion durable entre ces deux univers si proches. Pour qualifier le jazz antillais, on parlera aux premières heures de swing caribéen, de jazz biguine, une vague qui va débarquer en Europe dans l’entre-deux-guerres. « Les Antillais ont apporté beaucoup de musiques dans leurs bagages, mais les Français ne se sont alors pas rendus compte que le chaînon manquant entre les Etats-Unis et La France, c’étaient les Antilles ! », se souvenait en 2002 le poète Roland Brival, dont le cultissime Creole Gypsy était alors tout juste réédité.

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. This is the music that will be playing when you die and go to heaven. Excellent original style Dixieland, George's clarinet is heaven! I don't know if any record can do justice to the live experience of the original giants of jazz creating this stuff. But the George Lewis tracks on this record come pretty close! For this alone this CD is well worth buying.

Reissue with the latest remastering and the original cover artwork. Comes with a description written in Japanese. A nice little set from Monty Alexander – a Sunday Night session recorded with the same group, on the same weekend as his Saturday Night album! Monty Alexander's always great in a trio, but we really love the pianist when he's trying to add a little something extra to the mix – as he does here in a quartet performance that features some nice added percussion from Robert Thomas! The tracks have that warm glow and open flow that Alexander first started bringing to his music in the 70s – with sensitive rhythm work here from Reggie Johnson on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – but the added percussion really helps things swing at a slightly higher level, giving a gentle kick to some cuts, while Monty's still able to open up with some warmly lyrical lines over the top.
