Features 24 bit digital remastering. Comes with a description. The Charles Lloyd Quartet was (along with Cannonball Adderley's band) the most popular group in jazz during the latter half of the 1960s. Lloyd somehow managed this feat without watering down his music or adopting a pop repertoire. A measure of the band's popularity is that Lloyd and his sidemen (pianist Keith Jarrett, bassist Ron McClure and drummer Jack DeJohnette) were able to have a very successful tour of the Soviet Union during a period when jazz was still being discouraged by the communists. This well-received festival appearance has four lengthy performances including an 18-minute version of "Sweet Georgia Bright" and Lloyd (who has always had a soft-toned Coltrane influenced tenor style and a more distinctive voice on flute) is in top form.

Genre: Big Band, Post-Bop

Christian McBride's second big-band album, 2017's Bringin' It, is a robust, swaggeringly performed set of originals and standards showcasing his deft arranging skills and his ensemble's exuberant virtuosity. The album comes six years after his previous big-band outing, The Good Feeling, and once again finds the bassist conscripting a slew of his talented cohorts (some new, others returning), including saxophonists Steve Wilson and Ron Blake, trumpeters Freddie Hendrix and Brandon Lee, trombonist Steve Davis, pianist Xavier Davis, drummer Quincy Phillips, and others. Together, they make a swinging, dynamic sound that brings to mind the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra of the 1960s and bassist Charles Mingus' various big-band recordings. It should be noted that both of those ensembles continue to live on as the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra and Mingus Big Band, and McBride's group matches their high artistic legacies.

The third CD from Hildegard Knef album edition contains the two original albums "Lausige Zeiten" (1977) and "Überall blühen Rosen" (1978). In 1977, after a break, Knef returned as her own copywriter, with a new team from Herbert Rehbein (arranger) and Fred Weyrich (producer). Rehbein is an excellent performer who is able to adapt herself musically to the artist. Like his predecessor Hans Hammerschmid, he finds convincing ways to reproduce their lyrics with demanding ballads, swinging big-band numbers and oblique chansons.

Intense yet warm-toned tenor and soprano saxophonist Bob Rockwell ( born May 2, 1945 in Oklahoma) put together a dream quartet here on his 7th leader album having invited drummer Copeland to his highly successful trio (“ Born To Be Blue ” SCCD 31333). “These nine tracks constitute formidable evidence of Bob Rockwell’s exceptional ability and unswerving commitment to the music in which he believes…” (from the linernotes by Mark Gardner).

This CD reissue has four selections from the same sessions (but not released on the original sets) that resulted in The Freedom Book, The Blues Book, and The Space Book. "Groovin' High" features the intense tenor of Booker Ervin playing comparatively lighthearted bebop in a quintet with trumpeter Carmell Jones, pianist Gildo Mahones, bassist Richard Davis, and drummer Alan Dawson. The other numbers ("The Second #2," "Bass-IX," and a brief "Stella by Starlight") match Ervin with the unbeatable trio of pianist Jaki Byard, Davis, and Dawson. Although these performances are not quite classic, Booker Ervin fans will want this CD to round out their collections, for Ervin was at the peak of his powers during this era.

Forest of Feelings is keyboardist/guitarist/composer David Sancious' debut solo effort after leaving Bruce Springsteen's employ. He not only played keyboards on Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. and The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle and the title cut on Born to Run, but also arranged them. A musical polymath, Sancious never met a musical style he didn't like – or couldn't master. Here he is fully under the sway of jazz-rock fusion and progressive rock. Produced by Billy Cobham, Forest of Feelings features Sancious on an army of keys – Hammond B-3, clavinet, Moog, acoustic and Rhodes piano, etc. – but also on guitar (on which he is just as proficient, if not better).

This single CD contains 12 performances by pianist Russ Freeman (with either Joe Mondragon or Monty Budwig on bass and drummer Shelly Manne) plus the one regular studio session (eight songs) that illfated pianist Richard Twardzik led (in a trio with bassist Carson Smith and drummer Peter Littman). Due to its rarity, the Twardzik date is more important historically but actually Freeman generally takes solo honors. Fine, straight-ahead music from two of the mid-'50s' more promising pianists.

Billy Butler is well known to guitarists only, as the co-author of the early R&B funked-up standard "Honky Tonk," with organist Bill Doggett. The two albums featured in this single disc two-fer reissue – Guitar Soul and Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow, both released in 1970 – offer a wider view of the man and his music. The opening track on Guitar Soul is a cut worthy of the Meters in its New Orleans-styled second-line funk called "Blow for the Crossing." Nine and a half minutes in length, it's dark, spooky, greasy, and funky as hell. With Seldon Powell on tenor, Sonny Phillips on organ, Specs Powell on drums, and Bob Bushnell on bass, it's a jam du jour. Everybody solos, but Butler and Phillips are the pair that bend the tune all over the place like Gumby on Pokey. With an elongated melodic line played by Powell on the saxophone and punched-up by the drums, there's nothing to keep the body still in its massive groove-o-phonics. But the almighty groove wasn't Butler's only strength. With a saxophonist like Houston Person, he could play the most elegant swing – as in their read of the Rodgers & Hart classic "Dancing on the Ceiling" on the second half of the album, or as a solo guitarist he could play from the Montoya fake book as he does on "Golden Earrings," with a classical guitar.

The Japanese pianist and composer Makiko Hirabayashi can be described as an obvious example of a cosmopolitan musician in today's multicultural jazz. Born in Tokyo, she grew up in Hong Kong, received her training in Boston, USA, and has lived in Denmark since 1990. Her professional oeuvre is firmly based in Denmark's fertile music community, and she has never let stylistic restrictions hamper her. Numerous jazz and world music collaborations have enjoyed her talent. In 2001 she decided that the time was ripe to follow her own artistic path, and she formed this trio, which is still one of her steady groups. Her work with percussionist and drummer Marilyn Mazur (Miles Davis 85-89, Jan Gabarek 91-05, Wayne Shorter and many more) and bassist Klavs Hovman, opened many creative doors and was a maturing experience for the then 35-year old pianist. In 2006, following much session work with other artists, she felt ready to debut in her own name. MAKIKO was released on the German label Enja, and the trio enjoyed fine reviews everywhere. Since then, they have toured internationally. Now their second album HIDE AND SEEK is ready for release - also on Enja.

Master conguero Ray Barretto and salsa queen Celia Cruz had already worked together on the 1983 session Tremendo Trío, which found them teaming up with Puerto Rican sonero Adalberto Santiago. Five years later, towards the end of 1988, la guarachera and Barretto recorded the delightful, no-frills salsa session that you hold in your hands. The quality of the songwriting and the excellent production values of "Ritmo En El Corazon" gained the album a Grammy award in 1990.

Constant shifts between the natural and the artificial, organized and improvised, quiet and loud; all this you will hear during the mantric performance of Kozmodrum.
