And here we are in 2017, we decided to start it out with a few major changes. Some of those changes you might like, while others might not please you as much, but there always has to be a trade-off.

Let us begin with the good news. First of all, we would like to thank all the 100k visitors that come to us every day. Second, we would like to list all the changes that were recently made on our website:

  • The script of our website was completely rewritten and renewed, which made the website more stable and quick.

  • All ads were removed from our website. No more banners, pop-ups and pop-under ads.

  • The website is using SSL protocols as we care greatly about security.

  • The website is available through Tor network (The Onion Router) by using this link: http://avaxhome5lcpcok5.onion/ or via TOR proxy http://avaxhome5lcpcok5.onion.to/

Now, we’d like to mention some of the unpleasant changes that will befall our users. As you might have noticed, we are now using a new file hosting website - IcerBox.com. From this day forward, all files can be downloaded from premium accounts only.

Do you look at life seeing a half-full or a half-empty glass of water? What we’re getting at is that you can look at this change as a mandatory fee for downloading files or you can view it as a crowdfunding of your favorite project!

Cheers to everyone! We hope that you’ll be with us for years to come!

Abbey Lincoln is a legendary figure not only in music but to the entire movement Black Power. Singer and author of authentic originality, from harsh and sensual sound and African colorings, Abbey Lincoln has been the initiator of a new jazz vocal way, placing itself ideally close to other great artists such as Billie Holiday and Nina Simone. From the '60s alongside Max Roach, his artistic career, he was always combined with his intense activity within the black community, making his music became a sounding board in the complaint of racial discrimination experienced by African-American population.

A European recording date for Brooklyn-based Preminger, hailed across the pond as a distinctive tenor stylist with a gift for composition. Joined by the sensitive accompaniment of both fellow Brooklynite Garcia and Barcelona resident Kamaguchi, Preminger tackles a varied set of tunes. Theres a sweet (but never cloying) version of Try A Little Tenderness and a minimal Moonlight In Vermont (with a nicely understated drum solo). They step out a little further to pleasing effect on Ornettes Law Years and Monks Four In One and on the one original, Garcias Prairie Dance, but this disc never loses sight of lyricism and melody. Which is undoubtedly why Preminger is receiving such praise his playing is cool (the title track is a Warne Marsh tune), inventive, unexpected but never jarring or dissonant. In a world where innovative and edgy often means grating in a new way, Preminger is a rising star for those who like a little sugar in their coffee.

Guitarist/vocalist John Pizzarelli returns with another solid collection of tastefully swinging standards on Knowing You. Never straying too far from what he does best, Pizzarelli is nonetheless an exciting improviser and pleasing vocalist who always finds a way to make an old chestnut of a tune his own. Here, his rapport with such longtime bandmates as pianist Ray Kennedy, bassist Martin Pizzarelli, and drummer Tony Tedesco is instinctual, full of humor, and filled with call-and-response interplay. To these ends, Pizzarelli has compiled an enjoyable set of well- and lesser-known standards, including the sprightly swinger "Coffee, Black"…

Following two albums with a reconstituted L.A. Express, Bluestreak and Smokin' Section, Tom Scott returns to solo frontman duties on his Higher Octave Jazz debut, New Found Freedom, but he does so with a large number of guests. Those guests help broaden the styles of music available on the release, although Scott's own saxophone work remains a touchstone and everything on the disc will be easily programmable on smooth jazz radio. Indeed, the variety gives programmers many choices. Craig Chaquico, a fellow veteran of the 1970s rock scene and now a labelmate, joins Scott with some characteristic acoustic guitar work on the becalmed opener, "Feelin' It," after which adult contemporary singer Ann Nesby croons "You Are My Everything" while Billy Preston joins in on organ.

The last work of musician compostelano entitled 'Once' and compose many topics as the name of the disc. But four subjects, among which are 'Con alma' Dizzy Gillespie and 'Smole gets in your eyes' Jerome Kern, the rest are own songs, where Rábade deepens the introspective jazz, very Central European, almost minimalist, which characterized. Abe Rábade on this album devotes an issue to the memory and the memory of the great Paco de Lucia, entitled '11 Paco '(remember here that in 1994 Jorge Pardo, Chano Dominguez, Javier Colina and Tino di Geraldo they released an album titled '10 de Paco ', with songs signed by the legendary guitarist gaditano), which is both the best song on the album as one of the most deeply felt pieces around the disappearance of paco de Lucia. And only for this, the longest cedé piece, and worth the drive.

These are ‘Future Standards’ by The Howe Gelb Piano Trio, taking an outsider view of early gospel and rhythm and blues both part of the American musical ocialization that he touched on with 2006’s ‘Sno Angel’. Now he’s on a jazz-tinged trip, bending the genre, taking it back to his shack. On ‘Future Standards’, Gelb duets with the equally laconic Lonna Kelley as the pair come on like a seasoned duo managed by Broadway Danny Rose in Woody Allen’s film of the same name. Gelb’s piano sinks to a pedal-depressed ambience as his cavalier vocal boasts of new love and faded times, all In the best tradition of the American Songbook that he’s pretty damn cleverly adding a new volume to. "This is an attempt at writing a batch of tunes that could last through the ages with the relative structure of what has become known as "standards". The likes of Cole Porter and Hoagy Carmichael done up by Frank Sinatra or Billie Holiday," suggests Howe. "Julie London had a lot to do with it."

The Pizzarelli family treasured musical gatherings at home from the time the patriarch was just starting to play guitar, where he learned a lot from his two uncles about playing rhythm guitar. Long an accomplished sideman, soloist, and bandleader, Bucky Pizzarelli has performed and recorded with his sons John and Martin on a number of occasions over the years, while John has had Martin as the bassist in his group for a number of years. But this is the first family recording date with all three present and not a larger supporting cast, except for drummer Tony Tedesco, who is so well known to them he is considered family. But this time around…

The album "In Cahoots" is an inventive, atmospheric, and exploratory trio session, featuring Ned Rothenberg (clarinet, alto saxophone, bass clarinet, shakuhachi), Mark Feldman (violin), and Sylvie Courvoisier (piano). Each track is full of tension and dynamic interplay. A standout track is "Epic Proportions," where Courvoisier's piano excursions reach out far into the unknown, building and then tearing down, pushing in one direction then pulling back. Rothenberg and Feldman each draw upon diverse influences - Japanese classical music and gypsy folk – that mix with Courvoisier's sound, coagulate and then quietly burst. The interplay is tight and full of surprising turns and twists. The title track, "In Cahoots," exemplifies this, a twelve plus minute improvisation that blurs the sounds of all three instruments into a very organic, and highly developed soundscape.
