Manhattan Transfer's third album and second for Atlantic, Coming Out, showcases the talented singers (Tim Hauser, Alan Paul, Janis Siegel, and Laurel Masse) on a strictly pop affair. The only hints of jazz pop up on "Scotch and Soda" and a funky version of "Poinciana" on which Michael Brecker has a cameo on soprano. There is a good amount of variety and the singing is reasonably and impressive.

What started as a project to reunite Coryell with Billy Cobham on drums in order to take a second look at the sound and style of the Coryell's Spaces ended up creating a whole new chapter instead. With Richard Bona on bass and Bireli Lagrene on guitar, these nine songs capture the spirit of that 30-year-old session with new, adventuresome playing and vigor.

Garage Rock, Psychedelic Rock | Label: Easy Action

The original version of the album In Heat as it was intended to sound. The Fuzztones have been around for over 30 years as a garage rock revival band. Though originally from New York City, they work mainly in Europe where their brand of retro 60 trash rock burns up radios from Hungary to Poland to Italy. The original In Heat was released in 1989 at the peak of the garage revival, when bands like the Chesterfield Kings, Lyres, and Cynics were all the rage. Unsurprising, the music industry turned a blind eye, yet miraculously The Fuzztones signed a major label deal with RCA. Label politics had the band in a "real" studio with a "name" producer who watered down their unharnessed energy and snotty attitude. In the end the original disc was a second rate affair with most of the grit rubbed out only to die a sad, quick death at the hands of critics who never appreciated the band’s live act anyway. Raw Heat therefore turns the clock back in time when garage rock rivaled punk as the most exciting musical scene to come along in decades.

lassic first mini album Completely re mastered for the first time. Comes with nine bonus tracks. Originally released on Midnight in 1984, this live album (recorded during their Midwest tour) is the legendary debut that spearheaded the rough 'n' ready garage rock revival scene joined by other great combos such as the Cynics, the Chesterfield Kings, et al. Formed in 1981 by NYC beat guru Rudi Protrudi, the Fuzztones got immediate attention for their authentic sonic replication of the 1960s garage punk style and grotesque b-movie artwork (read: The Cramps). Their sonic attack is well documented in the grooves of this faithful re-release of the 'Tones deadly debut.

"Après « Brother Stoon », « Interférences » le deuxième album en leader de Baptiste Herbin qui paraît chez Just Looking, confirme son exceptionnel talent. Le son de son alto a encore pris de l’ampleur, de la profondeur. Son phrasé, plus limpide s’il en était besoin, vous embarque irrésistiblement dans une histoire passionnante à chacun des quatorze morceaux. Du moderne Pour la mie, au vertigineux neobop Parker 51 de Jimmy Raney, de la belle ballade Malala au soprano au Ask Me Now de Thelonious Monk, en passant par l’incursion free de Interférences, Baptiste Herbin nous prend fermement par la main et nous emmène dans sa vision du jazz et au-delà…

Stomu Yamashta was closely connected to the acting world, composing music for the Parisian Red Buddha Theater group, pieces which were transformed into his debut Red Buddha album, and for cinema – his soundtrack for the film One on One was recorded and released as his band East Wind's second album. Raindog, the band's follow-up, began life as a multimedia event held at London's Roundhouse in 1975, featuring the Red Buddha players as well as a number of British actors. Yamashta had recently expanded East Wind's lineup with the addition of two British vocalists – Murray Head and Maxine Nightingale, fresh from West End success in Jesus Christ Superstar.

Le Nuove Musiche, led by acclaimed director Krijn Koetsveld, continue with their exceptional series of Claudio Monteverdi’s complete madrigals. Here, they look back to the very beginning of Monteverdi's works, when the young composer was still under the influence of his teacher Marc'Antonio Ingegneri. At this time, the madrigal was already a popular art form, one that Monteverdi was beginning to add his name to, before – as we know – he would go on to radically extend it with the introduction of the seconda prattica. These two books show that Monteverdi was an assured and dexterous composer in the established genre. He could follow the conventions of madrigal-writing – concentrating on the recitation of the text, adding in affects by altering the melody, rhythm and harmony – with skill and originality.

The level of musicianship is top-notch all around, from Flanigin's magnetic Baby Face Willette-style Hammond magic to Smith's thunderous drumming to Vaughan's steady-as-a-rock rhythm and lead playing….The album, Live at C-Boy's, was recorded at C-Boy’s Heart & Soul, an atmospheric club on South Congress Street in Austin, Jimmie's hometown.

With Fearless Friday, his 6th album, pianist Omer Klein presents his newest compositions and the new line-up for his trio, with bassist Haggai Cohen-Milo and drummer Amir Bresler. In early 2014, the Omer Klein Trio changed direction, with drummer Ziv Ravitz replaced by the young Bresler, one of Israel’s top new talents.

At this point, Wayman Tisdale was better known as a one of the NBA's tough power forwards, a position often described as the equivalent to hockey's enforcer, but on the jazz tip Tisdale's silky smooth and a purveyor of mature romanticism. He's not a virtuoso on any of the instruments he plays (yet) – bass guitar, keyboards, or the synthesizer – but records with an all-star cast of musicians who mask any shortcomings. In fact, Tisdale contributes more on his recordings than those done in the past by Idris Muhammad, Norman Connors, and others.

On 2015's double-disc Live at Orion, Indonesian jazz fusion sextet simakDialog stretch out across their lengthiest recording yet, opening new avenues of exploration for their grooves, improvisational fire, and often astoundingly telepathic interplay. The album was cut live before a deep-listening audience at Mike Potter's prog-centric Orion Studios in Baltimore, Maryland during September 2013, the same month that simakDialog's third MoonJune album, The 6th Story, was released. Naturally, the live set includes several numbers from their concurrent studio outing, but while both The 6th Story and Live at Orion consist of nine tracks, the former was one hour in duration and the latter sprawls out to nearly two.

Mulgrew Miller, a talented McCoy Tyner-influenced pianist, leads an all-star septet on much of this date. The main stars, however, are Miller's nine diverse originals which range from modal to Monkish. With tenor-saxophonist Joe Henderson appearing on five selections, trumpeter Eddie Henderson on six and altoist Kenny Garrett heard throughout the full CD, Miller has a perfect frontline to interpret his tricky but logical originals.
