Reissue with the latest DSD remastering. Comes with liner notes. 1. I believe this was Makoto's 3rd album (something like that) and when it came out, I was expecting some more inventive Makoto magic–> but I was surprised to learn / hear that this was standard jazz material and I totally loved it. 2. This was produced before trio jazz stuff came back into fashion (ie prior to Chick's Acoustic Band and around the time of Keith Jarrett's trio… I think Keith had his first live trio album around this time). Anyway, the trio work is great, the song selection is classic, this is a no brainer for anyone who appreciates good / classic standard jazz.

Recorded in 1981 and produced by Concord founder Carl Jefferson, this is another jewel of an album from the Concord Jazz catalog. A classic live recording from the Keystone Korner jazz club in San Francisco and with great sound, this is vintage late Getz and includes some of his best performances of standards like "Easy Living," "Sweet Lorraine," "Old Devil Moon," "I'm Old Fashioned" and the title track. Now out of print on regualar CD, this SACD reissue will only enhance what is already an excellent Getz title.

The emergence of Chris Connor as a singer began when Stan Kenton engaged her as his featured orchestra vocalist in 1953. With her uncanny vocal resemblance to June Christy, she immediately burst onto the national scene. Tall, blonde Chris was becoming one of the select corps of younger girl vocalists, and in the fall of that year she left the bandleader and beganbuilding a reputation as a single on the eastern club circuit, soon signing an exclusive contract with the then-new Bethlehem Records label.

Two of singer Chris Connor's finest Atlantic albums are reissued in full on this single CD. The laid-back yet coolly emotional jazz singer is heard backed by top-notch rhythm sections (with either Ralph Sharon or Stan Free being the pianist/arranger) and occasional horns (trumpeter Joe Wilder, flutist Sam Most, tenors Al Cohn and Lucky Thompson, flutist Bobby Jaspar and Al Epstein on English horn and bass clarinet) adding some short solos. Connor (then around 30) was in her prime, and her renditions of such songs as "Poor Little Rich Girl," "Lonely Town," "I'm Shooting High," "Moonlight in Vermont," and even "Johnny One Note" are memorable and sometimes haunting.

The title Swing Is Here would have been more appropriate for the 1930s instead of 1960 when this album was originally issued, and the big-band era had long since waned. Yet vibraphonist Terry Gibbs kept the home fires burning out in California with this exceptional orchestra of cool jazz giants playing a stack of standards and modern compositions by Bill Holman or Gibbs, and one look back with an Artie Shaw number. What is most interesting about these arrangements is that they are always different in emphasizing the fleet, dampened sound of Gibbs in contrast, apart from, or in tandem with the woodwinds and brass instruments.

Jazz / Bop / Hard Bop / Trombone

Reissue with the latest 2015 remastering. Comes with liner notes. Nicely sharp sounds from the great JJ Johnson – a set that has the trombonist really honing his edge on a host of tight, short tracks – with a vibe that almost recalls his initial bop recordings on Blue Note and Prestige! The style here is a bit more sophisticated – definitely with an ear towards the modern directions that JJ was exploring in the 50s – but the sound is also nicely spontaneous, with more focus on improvisation between group members than larger arrangements – quite nice, given that the group features excellent tenor from Bobby Jaspar on tenor – and either Tommy Flanagan or Hank Jones on piano, Percy Heath or Wilbur Little on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. Tracks are short, and titles include "Overdrive", "Cube Steak", "Chasin The Bird", and "Solar".
