The recording captures Lewis's ensemble perhaps at zenith. "Jazz at Vespers" is one of the key albums in the George Lewis canon. It was recorded during a Vespers service in 1954 at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Oxford Ohio. This was the church of Rev. Alvin Kershaw, a jazz enthusiast who was one of the first to use jazz bands as part of a service. George Lewis was at his best playing spirituals, his clarinet gentle and introspective, weaving inside the melodies like a white dove. The band backed him sensitively.Highly recommended. Clean, clear recordings.

Each box contains 25 slipcase CDs, a booklet (up to 186 pages) and an index. The booklets contain extensive notes (Eng/Fr) with recording dates and line-ups. 31 hours of music in each box, totalling 1677 tracks Each track has been restored and mastered from original sources. The only reason I can think of for there not yet being a review of these four boxed sets, is that those who own them are just too busy having one hell of a blast listening to them. Some people moan about the 50 year copyright law for audio recordings in Europe, but without it this highly entertaining, eye-opening and educational undertaking could never have taken place. These 100 discs (spread over four boxed sets of 25 discs) tell the story of jazz from 1898 to 1959.

The earliest piece on this disc is the delightful Pastorale, written in 1907, when Stravinsky was 25; the latest is the enigmatic Epitaphium, written 52 years later. In between come a clutch of pieces from that fascinating period of Stravinsky’s life when he was moving from Russianism to neo-classicism via jazz. The remaining two, the Octet of 1923 and the Septet of 1953, are both firmly in Stravinsky’s witty, poised neo-classical style, though the Septet is moving towards new, tougher territory. Stravinsky himself made classic recordings of these pieces in the Sixties, now reissued on CD on the Sony label. These are always electric, if sometimes a little untidy, and so closely recorded you feel the players are sitting in your lap. By that lofty benchmark this new recording measures up superbly. Tempos are just as brisk and alert as Stravinsky’s, the accents just as incisive. These qualities are combined with a beautiful soft-grained tone – a nice change from Stravinsky’s lemon-sharp sound.

Mister Sam Records and Nova are delighted to announce the release of Alexander Scriabin s Ragtime Band , the new album from the David Gordon Trio their sixth. The 14 tracks of the album celebrate the music of this great Russian piano-poet, mystic and synaesthete with jazz interpretations of some of his exquisite piano miniatures, alongside popular music from around the time of his death, in 1915. The result is that on one mind-blowing album, ambient rock, choro, doo-wop, tango and free-bop rub shoulders with the eponymous rag (which gets the makeover to end all makeovers), all infused with the wit and vibrancy characteristic of this remarkable trio that bears the name of composer, jazz pianist and harpsichordist, David Gordon, a musician without limits. This is an album that could not have been conceived by many and that even fewer could have executed.

Kansas City Jazz: From Ragtime to Bebop-A History by Chuck Haddix
English | 26 May 2005 | ISBN: 0195047672 | 288 Pages | PDF | 4 MB

There were but four major galaxies in the early jazz universe, and three of them–New Orleans, Chicago, and New York–have been well documented in print. But there has never been a serious history of the fourth, Kansas City, until now. In this colorful history, Frank Driggs and Chuck Haddix range from ragtime to bebop and from Bennie Moten to Charlie Parker to capture the golden age of Kansas City jazz.
