By 1928 and '29 jazz was beginning to mature and recording technology was growing up along with it. Even taking into account his remarkable accomplishments on phonograph records from 1923 through early 1928, the exciting material gathered together on this disc represents - without question - some of the very best jazz ever recorded by New Orleans/Chicago clarinet archetype Johnny Dodds. On the first 11 selections, Natty Dominique blows one tough little cornet, and Bill Johnson's bull fiddle comes across more clearly and dramatically than ever before. Throughout the 1920s, many bands relied on the tuba to provide the bassline on their recordings…

Per molto tempo la Resistenza nell'Europa occidentale è stata ritenuta un fenomeno nazionale capace di offrire, tanto sul piano politico quanto su quello militare, un notevole contributo alla disfatta nazista. Sulla stessa falsariga, la cooperazione tra angloamericani e forze nazionali - resistenze e poteri in esilio - è stata giudicata esemplare. Nata sotto gli auspici dell'intesa più che del conflitto, dell'amicizia più che della rivalità, del rispetto più che dell'ostilità, questa collaborazione avrebbe reso più efficace la guerra sovversiva scoppiata nel 1940 nell'Europa prigioniera. Questa visione idilliaca, tuttavia, corrisponde ben poco ai fatti, quantomeno a quelli colti dagli storici. L'immagine dorata degli Alleati che lottano concordi contro il Terzo Reich nasconde un principio inesorabile: pur mirando alla sconfitta della Germania nazista, Gran Bretagna, Stati Uniti e relativi alleati difendevano anche i propri interessi nazionali. La coalizione risenti degli aspri rancori del periodo tra le due guerre e portò con sé concezioni divergenti, quando non opposte, dell'avvenire dell'umanità.

Genre: Piano Jazz | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Decca/MCA (MCAD-42327)

MCA's short-lived Decca CD-reissue program put out this gem, all of Tatum's piano solos from 1940, including two versions of the previously unknown "Sweet Emalina, My Gal." Some of the routines on these standards were a bit familiar by now (this "Tiger Rag" pales next to his 1933 version) but are no less exciting and still sound seemingly impossible to play.

La IIIe République a duré soixante-dix ans. Cette longévité exceptionnelle par rapport aux deux précédentes rompt avec la fatalité qui vouait jusque-là le régime républicain à succomber aux attaques des ennemis de la liberté. Elle permet aussi de l'enraciner dans la nation. L'école primaire, en particulier, contribue à diffuser l'amour de la République identifié à celui de la Patrie. …

This album of vintage recordings of Cole Porter songs mixes eight of Porter's own performances of his compositions with renditions that were hits when the songs were new. The basic selection criterion is revealed in the album's title; there is an emphasis placed here on Porter's more risqué and provocative numbers. Songs like "Let's Misbehave" (in a version by Irving Aaronson & His Commanders that was the equivalent of a Top Ten hit in 1928) and "Let's Do It (Let's Fall in Love)" (even in this prim rendering by Rudy Vallée) leave nothing to the imagination, of course. "Love for Sale" (by Fred Waring & His Pennsylvanians) is clearly about prostitution, "Miss Otis Regrets" (by Ethel Waters) is a tale of jealousy and murder, and "Find Me a Primitive Man" (by Lee Wiley) is about the attraction of animal lust.

All of these sides but one (a pop vocal by Charles Trenet) were made in December 1940, just half a year into the Nazi occupation of Paris. People are still marveling over the fact that Django Reinhardt, a Gypsy who played music closely aligned with Jews and Afro-Americans, was not arrested and put to death by the invasive regime, for these collective jams were and are the antithesis of fascist ideology. It just so happens that this little slice of the chronology contains some of Reinhardt's most interesting material, wonderfully evolved from the earlier Hot Club de France, yet filled with premonitions of how jazz would come to sound ten or even 20 years later. Hubert Rostaing was an inventive clarinetist, sounding something like Marshall Royal, and is featured on most of these sides…
