On Broadway, Right Now!, Mel Tormé and Margaret Whiting perform songs from the 1960 Broadway shows "Do Re Mi", "Wildcat", "Camelot", and "Irma La Douce". The results range from jazzy ("All You Need Is A Quarter") to zany ("What's New At The Zoo?") to staggeringly beautiful ("Far Away From Home/Angelina"). The 2010 reissue is fleshed out with solo recordings of other Broadway tunes, recorded at other sessions in 1959 and 1960.

This two-LP set is the definitive early Cal Tjader album and one of the high points of his career. For a Monterey concert that was considered a preview concert for the 1959 Monterey Jazz Festival, Tjader was teamed up with flutist and altoist Paul Horn, pianist Lonnie Hewitt, bassist Al McKibbon, Willie Bobo (on drums and timbales), and percussionist Mongo Santamaria. Their renditions of Latinized jazz tunes along with a few Latin originals practically define the idiom. Highlights include "Doxy," one of the earliest versions of Santamaria's "Afro Blue" (pre-dating John Coltrane's famous rendition by four years), "Love Me or Leave Me," and "A Night in Tunisia." Essential music for everyone's Latin jazz collection.

Quatre ans que Mandino Reinhardt ne nous avait fait la joie d’un nouvel album… c’est long quatre ans. Mais oublions cette interminable attente puisque l’élégant guitariste strasbourgeois nous présente aujourd’hui "Le Swing du Luthier", un disque auto-produit qui mériterait bien une diffusion moins confidentielle. Car l’air de rien, face à la multitude de productions estampillées "jazz manouche" actuelle, ce disque pourrait bien remettre quelques pendules à l’heure : loin des sempiternelles reprises de Minor swing…

Vintage Vegas are conquering Germany. Las Vegas, almost no city in this world polarizes that much and is associated with glitter, glamor, money and of course Frank Sinatra. Inspired by the ancient lifestyle of the “El Dorado” of gambling and based on the idea to create a modern “Rat Pack” that pack pop hits in a cool Swing sound, the band Vintage Vegas was founded. Vintas Vegas consists of three experienced passionated musicians. The first one is the smart Italian singer Giovanni Zarrella, which can look back sold on nearly 5 million records, trained pianist Tom Marks, who for years worked as a composer, singer and producer for other artists, and Inan Lima, the likeable Brazilian, who is not only a passionate singer and percussionist is, but already shared the stage with the likes of Joe Cocker, Zucchero, Shakira and Jennifer Lopez.

From the outset, Archie Shepp's terminally misunderstood Attica Blues on Impulse during the 1970s was an attempt by the saxophonist and composer to bring together the various kinds of African American musics under one heading and have them all express the conscience of the day. His ensemble featured singers, string players, horns, drums, guitars, etc. The sounds were a Gordian knot of jazz, free music, R&B, soul, groove, and even funk. In 1979 Shepp was given the opportunity to realize the project with an ensemble of his choosing at the Palais des Glaces in Paris (New York was already courting Wimpton Marsalis). Shepp chose 30 musicians and director/conductor Ray Copeland. Among the throng were saxophonists Marion Brown, John Purcell, Patience Higgins, and John Ware.

Here's a pure nostalgic trip down memory lane for many, as Sammy Kaye leads his syrupy big band and vocal choirs though 16 songs that reflect the overly romanticized era of the mid-1900s. The unfortunate thing about Kaye's sound is that he is drowned out by the singers and string arrangements, so you never really get to hear his faux Benny Goodman-style clarinet playing. Still, this is traditional pop/pseudo jazz at its finest, including such well-known songs as "Daddy," "We'll Meet Again," "Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone," "Sweet and Lovely," "Harbor Lights," and "As Time Goes By." Perhaps not the best of the big bands in general, but some of the best from this one. It's a good CD, but for specific people with tastes yearning for the good 'ol days.
