EAC 1.0b3 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 600dpi | 325MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Jazz, Post-Bop, Fusion

For the second ECM album by Aaron Parks – following the solo release Aborescence, which JazzTimes praised as “expansive, impressionistic… like a vision quest” – the prize-winning pianist has convened a trio featuring bassist Ben Street and drummer Billy Hart. The rhythm pair, which also teams in Hart’s hit quartet for ECM, blends fluidity and strength – what Parks calls “an oceanic” quality, producing waves of energy for the pianist to alternately ride and dive into. Find the Way has the aura of a piano-trio recording in the classic mold, from melody-rich opener “Adrift” to the closing title track, a cover of a romantic tune Parks grew to love on an LP by Rosemary Clooney and Nelson Riddle. Parks also drew inspiration for this album from the likes of Alice Coltrane and Shirley Horn (for whom Hart played); space and subtlety are a priority.

If jazz was ever meant to be a religion, its prayers might sound something like Nan Madol. The title means “spaces between,” and no description of this music could be more apt. The album is an eclectic mandala of drones, eruptions of ecstatic liberation, and snatches of melody from both near and far. Influences range from Japanese folk melodies to Alpine herding calls, and all of them strung by a powerful understatement of continuity.

Label: Trippin N Rhythm Records | Tracks: 15 | Rls.date: 2017

Skinny Hightower is a smooth jazz pianist who is known for his keen ability to draw influences from other genres of music, claiming that he doesn't listen to smooth jazz. Nonetheless, the result is a smooth, complex blend somewhere in between R&B, jazz, and soul. Skinny started out playing drums as a young child, later developing an ear for piano, bass and guitar. He recorded his first song at nine years old and realized that he'd found a niche in songwriting and recording. As years progressed, Skinny continued recording smooth jazz and has since worked with numerous artists behind the scenes as a producer.

The centennial of Ben Webster's birth occurred in 2009 and producer Nick Phillips mined the vaults of various Concord-owned labels, including Pablo, Riverside, Contemporary, and Prestige/Swingville, to create this compilation featuring the late tenor saxophonist. One of the three giants of his instrument during the 1930s and 1940s (along with Coleman Hawkins and Lester Young), Webster was still very much at the top of his game when these sessions were recorded. When he took part in the series of small-group dates with Art Tatum, he refused to be intimidated by the pianist's intricate flourishes, simply delivering majestic solos in "My One and Only Love," "All the Things You Are," and "Have You Met Miss Jones." He's very comfortable with old friends Benny Carter and Barney Bigard in an easygoing setting of Carter's "Lula." The two live tracks, "Caravan" and "Georgia on My Mind" taken from At the Renaissance, also find Webster in an inspired mood, supported by a rhythm section including pianist Jimmy Rowles and guitarist Jim Hall.

Hampshire & Foat - Galaxies Like Grains of Sand (2017)
Jazz | 40:38 mins | MP3, 320 kbps | 103 MB
Label: Athens Of The North

This release marks something of a departure for Athens of the North, a label predominantly known for reissuing ludicrously rare funk and soul sevens. For starters, it's a brand new album, written, performed and produced by jazzman Greg Foat and Warren Hampshire, who's best known for being a member of The Bees. Then there's what it sounds like. While there are nods to the organic, immaculately produced soul of Rotary Connection, for the most part Galaxies Like Grains of Sand is a luscious fusion of hazy, Cinematic Orchestra style jazz, folksy downtempo compositions, and the blissful, head-in-the-clouds bliss of new age influenced ambient. Surprising or not, it's an utterly beguiling album.

For the young jazz artists of the '70s, Stevie Wonder was as iconic as Gershwin. They saw him as a guru of urban rhythms, a melodist with few peers, an electronic wizard whose synthesizer playing influenced the fusion movement… As straight-ahead jazz gave way to fusion and later to "smooth jazz", Wonder's songs served as a lessons in genres-crossing – and as fun material to jam on. You'll hear the results on Blue Note Plays Stevie Wonder.
