Dela – Translation Lost

null

It started as a simple beat tape. Freshly installed in Montreal, where he was planning to put music on the side for a little while, it only took a couple weeks before Dela felt the need to put together a small setup (a MPC 1000, a turntable and computer speakers) and went back to creating. Beats quickly accumulated. Most were used for side projects that have yet to be released. Some had a special feel : Dela decided to put them together to create what would become Translation Lost.

Robot Koch and John Robinson – Robot Robinson

null

From a laments perspective you can call this Jahcoozi’s Robot Koch meets Scienz of Life’s John Robinson. However we here at Project: Mooncircle like to see this as two dynamic forces of nature coming together in parallel universes, delivering cosmic opted sonics with science-fiction narrative conventions in a metaphysical tone. Robot Robinson is the FUTURE from Earth to Mars to Venus to Jupiter and Beyond, this project spells out the attempts to bring a different pitch of vocals to the world of Electronic Music. Robinson being no stranger to the scientifical lyrical approach along with Robot’s evolutionary voyage prone soundscapes this one is a sure shot! The Future of Music is in Good Hands.
All tracks produced by Robot Koch. All lyrics by John Robinson.

The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble – From The Stairwell

null

The long-running project of breakcore man Jason Kohnen (aka Bong Ra) and Gideon Kiers, ‘From The Stairwell’ is The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble’s latest shadowy collection of creeping, Lynchian jazz and it might just be their most successful to date. With each album Kohnen and Keirs seem to rely less on their production smarts and more on the qualities of their selection of players, and ‘From The Stairwell’ is truly a testament to that. With incredible smoky vocals from Charlotte Cegarra, achingly melancholy violin from Sarah Anderson and the usual blend of subtle electronics and impressively programmed beats it is easy to dissolve into the band’s 60s movie-soundtrack flecked world. A common comparison is made to similarly located band Bohren Und Der Club of Gore, but The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble are somewhat more hopeful than that, occasionally letting slivers of light filter into their pitch-black jazz.

Elaquent – The Midnight After

null

“You already know. Anybody who has checked out my 2009 release ‘After Midnight’ should already understand the vibe i was going for. If you havent heard After Midnight, then allow me to elaborate. Midnight soul shit. Certain sounds resonate more after dark, than before dark. something about the night skies, the moon, the crickets. jazzy, smooth, vibin type music. As i always say, perfect is boring. Tracks are a bit lo fi and sloppy. but so is life. Take your jacket off, stay for a while. Grab your Rye and Coke. I tried to create an atmosphere that will set the mood right. Studying. Drinking. Smoking. Romance. Just do me a favor and play it at night. Shoutouts to Marv Won, Mr Brady, O-Phrap, Es, Solar-C, and Phillipe Edison for helping me realize the vision. Highest praises to the whole HW&W team. Ok. Less reading, more vibing. Enjoy.” – sona (eq)

John Coltrane – Settin’ The Pace

null

This is Coltrane from the period when he was a member of Miles Davis’ legendary 1950s quintet, accompanied by fellow quintet members Garland and Chambers. This is ‘Trane in a relaxed bop mode, making some swinging relaxed jazz in the vein of Sonny Rollins and Stan Getz (the latter in his more bop-ish mode). This is not the fire-breathing saxophonist of the middle ’60s, but a player who was beginning to push against the boundaries, all the while playing with thoughtful, imaginative lyricism. It’s a set of little-known pop tunes of the era, with the exception of Jackie McLean’s “Little Melonae.” Anyone who likes/loves the mainstream jazz of the ’50s, or Miles’ music of that time, and/or Coltrane fans who want/need to hear their idol in an easy-going context should pick up on this.

Personnel: John Coltrane (tenor saxophone); Red Garland (piano); Paul Chambers (bass instrument); Art Taylor (drum).

Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers – Hard Bop

null

The second edition of Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, which features altoist Jackie McLean and trumpeter Bill Hardman, tends to get overlooked due to the original version having Horace Silver and the 1959 band featuring Lee Morgan, Benny Golson, and Bobby Timmons. Pianist Sam Dockery and bassist Spanky DeBrest, although destined to be obscure, handle their roles well behind the lead voices even if McLean, Hardman, and Blakey generally steal the show. An excellent hard bop set.

Eric Dolphy – Vintage Dolphy

null

Eric Dolphy was a composer, arranger and instrumentalist in the vanguard of the new jazz of the early 1960s, leading his own groups and working with John Coltrane and Ornette Coleman. This posthumous collection of some of Dolphy’s rarer, more obscure works gives a fine summation of what he’d done and what he was capable of.

Vintage Dolphy features him in some unusual contexts. A piano-less quartet (“Half Note Triplets”), recalls the Ornette Coleman Quartet of that time, while a freewheeling jam session with a fascinatingly diverse line-up (Don Ellis, Benny Golson, Phil Woods, and Lalo Schifrin), swings the Charlie Parker standard “Donna Lee.” There are several pieces composed by Gunther Schuller (who is equally at home with both jazz and classical music) for small chamber ensembles–these address Dolphy’s interest in 20th century classical music, and his (and Schuller’s) desire to bridge contemporary jazz and classical forms. “Variants on a Theme By Thelonious Monk” is an interesting recasting of Monk’s concepts, with Dolphy’s tart, vocalized horn wailing over a small jazz group and an understated string quartet.

Recorded live at Carnegie Hall, New York, New York on March 14 and April 18, 1963 and live at Everson Museum, Syracuse, New York on March 10, 1962.

Lee Morgan – City Lights

null

Lee Morgan was only a tender 19 years of age when he led this 1957 Blue Note date, but his technique surpassed most of the more seasoned trumpeters on the scene. Technically agile and possessed of a bright, clear tone (he clearly belongs to the lineage of Dizzy Gillespie), Morgan shines on City Lights, and his sidemen–including saxophonist George Coleman, trombonist Curtis Fuller, and bassist Paul Chambers–are no slouches either. Strong writing from jazz composer Benny Golson makes this a thoroughly enjoyable hard bop session.

Personnel: Lee Morgan ; Curtis Fuller, George Coleman, Paul Chambers, Ray Bryant, Art Taylor.

P.E. Hewitt Jazz Ensemble – Winter Winds

null

A brilliantly soulful set from the PE Hewitt Jazz Ensemble – an early 70s group with a style that mixes the sunny and the spiritual! Hewitt’s group works at a level that’s definitely in line with some of our favorite indie jazz at the time – really pushing the boundaries with a great sense of spirit – stretching out towards new ideas, yet never getting too free or too outside to lose their sense of swing. But at another level, there’s a slightly groovy undercurrent to the record too – one that comes from the wordless vocals of singer Nina Scheller, whose style reminds us a bit of the singing on the Sound Of Feeling record with Oliver Nelson – particularly given the modal grooves on the best numbers here. Rhythms are really in the lead at the album’s strongest points – driven by Phil Hewitt’s work on piano and vibes, and topped with alto sax and flugelhorn too.

Shlohmo – Places EP

null

From the first early glimpses of Henry Laufer’s work as Shlohmo, it was clear that he was on to something. With an effortless grasp on spatial sound design combined with deceptively simple melodies, subtle bass drops and swinging slow motion drums constructed from lo-fi laptop recordings, Henry’s work on the Shlohmoshun Deluxe and Camping EP immediately put him into the forefront of a new wave of talent rising among the hordes of west coast beat makers.

Inspired by the desire to write songs and create a release of full-range instrumentation/vocals all his own, Laufer promptly began home-recording Bad Vibes, his proper full-length debut album for the Friends of Friends label. The Places EP includes the lead single of that very name and 3 unique b-sides from this recording period… giving a small window into the maturing mind and exciting future output of Wedidit Collective’s head honcho, Shlohmo…

Wayne Shorter Albums!

Though some will argue about whether Wayne Shorter’s primary impact on jazz has been as a composer or as a saxophonist, hardly anyone will dispute his overall importance as one of jazz’s leading figures over a long span of time. Though indebted to a great extent to John Coltrane, with whom he practiced in the mid-’50s while still an undergraduate, Shorter eventually developed his own more succinct manner on tenor sax, retaining the tough tone quality and intensity and in later years, adding an element of funk. On soprano, Shorter is almost another player entirely, his lovely tone shining like a light beam, his sensibilities attuned more to lyrical thoughts, his choice of notes becoming more spare as his career unfolded. Shorter’s influence as a player, stemming mainly from his achievements in the 1960s and ’70s, has been tremendous upon the neo-bop brigade who emerged in the early ’80s, most notably Branford Marsalis. As a composer, he is best known for carefully conceived, complex, long-limbed, endlessly winding tunes, many of which have become jazz standards yet have spawned few imitators.

Sonny Clark – Sonny’s Crib

null

Recorded in 1957, Sonny’s Crib features a front line of Curtis Fuller, Donald Byrd, and John Coltrane with Sonny Clark on piano, Art Taylor on drums, and Paul Chambers on bass. Truly still a bebop recording, done a full year before the landmark Cool Struttin’ session, nonetheless the set produced some awesome readings of classic tunes, like the opener, “With a Song in My Heart,” with one of the knottiest Byrd solos ever. As Chambers and Taylor up the rhythmic ante and Clark comps with enormous chords in the background, the entire line solos, but it is Byrd’s that is stunning in its complexity — though Coltrane could play bebop as well as anybody. The most notable tracks on the session are the classic readings of Kurt Weill’s “Speak Low” and “News for Lulu,” the latter of which has been adopted by John Zorn as his theme. On the former, Clark’s rearrangement, with Coltrane leading the front line, is truly revelatory. Using a Latin rhythm in cut time, Clark sets up a long, 22-note melody line that moves right into Trane’s solo. He moves the key around and harmonically shifts gears as Clark follows and stays in the pocket for him while Trane uses the middle register for legato pyrotechnics. Fuller’s next and covers over the blues inherent in the tune with pure swing, before Byrd brings it back into the fold with a gorgeous counterpoint of the melody. Clark taps his way into extended harmonics on the sixths and sharpens the accents as he trounces the original key and plays double trills to get back. The latter is a smokin’ Latin take on the hard bop blues, with a staggered melodic line and a large tonal palette that gives the horn players room to explore the timbral possibilities of Clark’s colors — which are revealed in the loosest, skittering skein of bluesy phrasing this side of Horace Silver in his solo. In all, Sonny’s Crib is a phenomenal recording, one that opened the door to hard bop becoming the norm in the late ’50s, and one that drew deft, imaginative performances from all its players.

Donald Byrd – The Cat Walk

null

In this album, Byrd demonstrates a further stage in his career. His sense of dynamics, for instance, is acutely evident throughout the set together with his capacity to construct fresh melodic patterns. Also heartening is the fact that Byrd does not find it necessary to pound home the point that he has roots. A blues feeling courses through everything he plays, but he is also able to range through a much wider variety of moods than are several of his more self-consciously “hard” contemporaries. There is in Byrd a linkage to sunny, light-hearted jazz playing as well as to vigorously assertive self-expression.
