The 12-tracks on the CD has three breakout songs (including “Move Something”) favored by Triple A, Urban AC, college radio and the Music Choice channel. SiriusXM Radio has picked up the tracks “House Party” and title song “One Of A Kind”, on their playlists. Champion is known for describing himself as “just a regular down home country boy”. Do not be fooled! Grady music is procured as though it were a science. As a businessman and master producer, Grady’s passion for the Blues, along with his systematic devotion to his crafting his blues style and methodical hard work are evident in One of a Kind. In his arsenal of players for One Of A Kind, Grady has summoned some of the baddest Blues guitarists our nation currently has. Blues Rocker, Elvin Bishop, the Stylized Blues Funk of Eddie Cotton. Jr., Southern Soul of Theodis Easley, and Blues Blazer, Mr. Sipp, are distinctively heard on the tracks. In addition to superb percussions, keys, bass and horns are layers of backup vocal arrangements united to enliven Grady Champion’s gritty vocal delivery.

Vocal Jazz | MP3 320 kbps CBR | Scans | 47 min | 117 MB
Label: Meantime Records | Rel: 1982

An adventurous singer who is quite versatile, Karin Krog is able to sing anything from standards to fairly free improvisations. She made her recording debut in 1964, appeared at many jazz festivals in Europe in the mid-'60s, and in 1967, came to the U.S., performing and recording with the Don Ellis Orchestra and Clare Fischer's trio. A world traveler based in Europe, Krog has recorded fairly steadily through the years, using such sidemen as Kenny Drew, Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen, Jan Garbarek, Ted Curson, Dexter Gordon, Palle Mikkelborg, Steve Kuhn, Steve Swallow, Archie Shepp, Bengt Hallberg, and John Surman; she has made records for Philips, Sonet, Polydor, and other European labels.

MP3 CBR 320 Kbps | 103MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Fusion, Smooth Jazz

A fairly typical Dave Grusin date from the early days of GRP, this set features five of the keyboardist/producer's originals. The music is often atmospheric and a bit cinematic, with Grusin assisted by the soprano of Grover Washington and flutist Dave Valentin (along with top rhythm section players) on two songs apiece; "The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter" has Grusin's keyboards joined just by Ron Carter's bass.

Two Of A Kind was a comparatively low-key affair by Chain's standards. Of the four cuts featuring Madison and Beauford from Muddy's band, only the title track (written by Madison) and Little Walter's "Blues With A Feeling" provide any real excitement, despite the typically robust backing that Chain supplies. And some observers at the time found "Elephant" tediously self-indulgent. The album sold in only moderate numbers and by the time of its release in December, Chain had undergone further personnel shifts, Little Goose being the first to leave. He went on to considerable success with the Kevin Borich Express and later formed his own eponymous outfit. His replacement, Tony Lunt, was formerly drummer for Carson and Alta Mira, and he brought his bandmate, the in-demand keyboardist Mal Logan with him.

Two virtuoso jazz violinists meet in this small masterpiece to play great tunes of Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, Toots Thielemann and other legends. The French 'alter ego' of Django Reinhardt and "The Fiddling Viking" meet and create a unique jazz paradise. An amazing CD.

Label: Naxos Sweden - Prophone Records | Release Year: 2017

Every now and then she brings out an album. Reflections Of A Voice is her latest. It features jazz standards and three of her own compositions, the most interesting of these being "The Voice Inside." Melander says the song is about "having the courage to listen to our inner voice and the voice of the heart, where truth is found." It could just as well describe the advice she gives to extract the best from her pupils. The song gets a little "stuck" melodically but her sincerity more than makes up for this and Anders Bergcrantz contributes a thoughtful trumpet solo.

The album feels like a breath of fresh air in a catalogue that has been building for a release like this. While Embers of a Dying World might not be the best album to come out this year (its early days so who knows, it just might be!), it certainly started 2017 with a bang and is one hell of a big step in the right direction for Mors Principium Est.
