This 2-CD set truly demonstrates what was defined as the "West Coast style of jazz" but, in fact, was the Shorty Rogers style. We can hear arrangements of a loose variety, played by the most outstanding group of musicians of the Los Angeles jazz scene. The music presented here is a major example of Shorty Rogers' great talent, and a milestone in the orchestral idiom of modern jazz. Shorty's writing and playing were a pretty honest reflection of his own personality. If there was ever an individual to be selected as the head of the West Coast school, it definitely would have been Shorty Rogers.

Originally released on 10-inch vinyl in early 1955, this album spotlights some of the best from Blue Note's West Coast jazz roster of the day, as the title implies, recorded in Los Angeles and featuring prominent jazz musicians from both coasts such as Harry "Sweets" Edison, Stan Levey, Conte Candoli and Marty Paich. The "blindfold test" refers to the fact that this was originally issued with no credits, presenting a challenge to jazz fans to identify the players who were only revealed on the second volume of this series.

Jazz / Cool / West Coast Jazz / Trumpet

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. Shorty Rogers is definitely way up there with this classic album for Atlantic Records – hitting heights that even go beyond his more famous sides for RCA! The groove here is sharp, but also has room for lots of individual flavors too – thanks to different groupings of west coast players who include Bud Shank on alto, Jimmy Giuffre on baritone and tenor, Lou Levy on piano, Shelly Manne on drums, Barney Kessel on guitar, and Pete Candoli, Conte Candoli, Harry Edison, and Don Fagerquist on trumpets! Shorty himself wrote nearly all the tracks on the set – at a point at which he was really hitting his stride as a composer, doing an incredible job of mixing modern ideas and swinging jazz – as you'll hear on cuts that include "Pixieland", "Solarization", "Baklava Bridge", "March Of The Martians", "Moten Swing", and "Wail Of Two Cities".

Gathering Call is a 2013 CD by the Matt Wilson Quartet and John Medeski. An MP3 version had been posted before by another user but after checking, it was removed so I decided to re-up the FLAC and create an MP3 version of this very nice album.

EAC Rip | FLAC, TRACKS+CUE, LOG | Covers | 1cd, 317 MB
Classical | Label: Warner Classics | Catalog Number: D 170258 | TT: 46’05

Original arrangements of Gershwin tunes are rare these days, but that's what you'll hear in this album by Kiri Te Kanawa. Granted, the arrangements sound somewhat dated according to 21st century tastes, but that's what makes them fascinating. These were like nothing anyone else was writing when the George and Ira first brought them to life. Kiri uses a different, somewhat breathier voice than you might be used to on her classical albums, probably not the type of voice Gershwin had in mind, but I think it generally works pretty well.

Non si può certo dire che Sebastian Rudd sia un avvocato come tutti gli altri. Non possiede uno studio vero e proprio, ma il suo ufficio si trova a bordo di un grande furgone nero blindato dotato di vari comfort - wi-fi, un frigorifero pieno di superalcolici, delle comode poltrone e un buon equipaggiamento di armi. Non ha soci in affari, ma accanto a lui c'è sempre un uomo, che lui chiama Partner, armato fino ai denti, che gli fa da autista, guardia del corpo, confidente, impiegato e caddy, quando gioca a golf. Sebastian ha anche una ex moglie che non smette mai di procurargli guai e un figlio piccolo che non vede tanto quanto vorrebbe…

Genre: Jazz, Fusion

Way Back When finds Surman on baritone and soprano saxophones, joined by John Taylor on electric piano, Brian Odgers on electric bass, John Marshall on drums and, on two tracks, alto saxophonist Mike Osborne. This one-day session was, in Surman's words, "a sort of 'farewell' jam session," held before Surman moved to continental Europe to join bassist Barre Phillips and drummer Stu Martin for the groundbreaking free jazz unit known as the Trio.
