Jazz / Bop / Cool / Guitar

The first album in a brilliant run of work that Barney Kessel did for Contemporary Records in the 1950s – material that forever went onto shape the sound of jazz guitar, and which stands right up there with some of the best of his generation! In a way, the Kessel heard here is even fresher than in later years – as he's playing in a small group mode that breaks down new territory for his instrument – often with reeds from Bud Shank or Buddy Collette – in styles that have some of the slight spaciousness of the Chico Hamilton group, but a bit more straight swing overall. Other players include Arnold Ross or Claude Williamson on piano, Harry Babasin or Red Mitchell on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums – and the full length album compiles material from earlier 10" LP releases on Contemporary, plus a few more tracks – to make a full set of 12 songs that include "Easy Like", "Bernardo", "Vicky's Dream", "Salute To Charlie Christian", and "North Of The Border".

EAC Rip | FLAC (Tracks+.cue, log) | 100 CDs, 90:11:57 min | Covers included | 24,3 Gb
Genre: Jazz, Mainstream Jazz, Hard Bop, Cool / Label: Membran

Fantastic 100 CD box containing a plethora of Modern Jazz recordings. In the 1950's, Jazz spread over the world. With the advent of the LP, Jazz improvisation was freed from the limitation of the old 78 three minute playing time. This gave room for deep and long artistic statements. The Jazz message conquered the scene and built new regional and stylistic centers.

Label: Sony Music Collectables / Catalogue: COL-CD-7456 /
Easy Listening Pop / LP´s Originally Released in 1971

This album is definately one of a kind and Ray Conniff never bettered this, albeit short era in his long career. The production sound is utterly unique to the era and can never be repeated. The vocal 'wall of harmony' with distinctive reverb, the bass drum sound, the all swinging, tambourine-shakin' production style that can never be re-captured.

Jazz / Hard Bop / Saxophone

Due to his decision to settle in Los Angeles, tenor saxophonist Harold Land has long been underrated. A strong bop stylist who later on would be influenced a great deal by John Coltrane, Land in 1959 had a sound closer to Sonny Rollins. For this excellent straight-ahead quintet set with trumpeter Dupree Bolton and pianist Elmo Hope, Land performs four of Hope's superior but little-known compositions along with two of his own. This is high-quality hard bop, easily recommended to fans of straight-ahead jazz.

World Music / Ethnic / Ganassi Recorder / Percussion

Transience is the debut CD from an unusual, worldly (not just ‘world’-y) Australian duo. Racheal Cogan is a widely-travelled, skilled, creative player of the recorder. Forget ‘primary school’ notions of her instrument! Tony Lewis is one of Australia’s finest, most musically-diverse percussionists. When they met and first played together in 2005 they knew their duo would be ongoing, evolving. Transience (subtitled Contemporary Modal Music) has new versions of traditional pieces from Turkey and Macedonia, plus contemporary compositions by Racheal and by the most famous of her teachers/mentors - the Cretan-resident, Ross Daly.
