Miles Davis – Kind Of Blue “50th Anniversary Edition” (CD+DVD)

null

This is the one jazz record owned by people who don’t listen to jazz, and with good reason. The band itself is extraordinary (proof of Miles Davis’s masterful casting skills, if not of God’s existence), listing John Coltrane and Julian “Cannonball” Adderley on saxophones, Bill Evans (or, on “Freddie Freeloader,” Wynton Kelly) on piano, and the crack rhythm unit of Paul Chambers on bass and Jimmy Cobb on drums. Coltrane’s astringency on tenor is counterpoised to Adderley’s funky self on alto, with Davis moderating between them as Bill Evans conjures up a still lake of sound on which they walk. Meanwhile, the rhythm partnership of Cobb and Chambers is prepared to click off time until eternity. It was the key recording of what became modal jazz, a music free of the fixed harmonies and forms of pop songs. In Davis’s men’s hands it was a weightless music, but one that refused to fade into the background. In retrospect every note seems perfect, and each piece moves inexorably towards its destiny.

Freddie Hubbard – Straight Life

null

This is a remarkable and often overlooked album by one of the finest and most innovative trumpet players of the ’60s and ’70s. Steeped deeply in funk, Hubbard brings his bright tone and evocative, mercurial playing to the post-Bitches Brew soundscape of electrified instruments, Latin percussion, complex polyrhythms, and “free” blowing focused on texture and atmosphere. Straight Life charts waters different from Davis’ masterpiece, however. Whereas Bitches Brew is a dark, ominous journey into a jungle of rhythm clusters and tonal coloring, Hubbard’s work is sparer, cleaner, and characterized by catchy, almost pop-like themes.

Straight Life is much more than a mere groove-fest, though, as the top-notch players (including Joe Henderson, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and a young George Benson on guitar) unfurl formidable chops and vibrant backing throughout. The first two tracks, Hubbard’s title track and Weldon Irvine’s “Mr. Clean,” are lengthy, soulful workouts whose propulsive qualities and buoyancy are contrasted by the third track, the artist’s delicate and gorgeous flugelhorn treatment of “Here’s That Rainy Day.” Taken together, the cuts on Straight Life are musically sophisticated, stirring, and eminently groovy, making this “soul-jazz” of the highest order.

Personnel: Freddie Hubbard (trumpet, flugelhorn); Joe Henderson (saxophone); Herbie Hancock (piano); George Benson (guitar); Ron Carter (bass); Jack DeJohnette (drums); Weldon Irvine (tambourine); Richie Landrum (percussion).

John Coltrane – A Love Supreme (Deluxe Edition)

null

John Coltrane saw the album-length suite A Love Supreme as his gift to God. The world has come to see it as a classic — not only Coltrane’s best-known work, but one of the most important and influential jazz records ever made. Now, for the first time, the full story of A Love Supreme is available in one package.

The first disc of this deluxe edition consists of A Love Supreme as released in 1965. The second disc includes the John Coltrane Quartet’s only live performance of the suite, recorded at the Antibes jazz festival that summer and receiving its first authorized release. Most notably, it also includes the long-rumored sextet version of the opening movement, receiving its first release of any kind.

Mastered by the original recording engineer, Rudy Van Gelder, and containing extensive annotation and many photographs, this is the definitive edition of an indisputable masterpiece.

Nicola Conte – Love & Revolution

null

A bold new chapter in the career of Nicola Conte – quite possibly his most collaborative record to date, and easily his most righteous as well! Although Conte looks cheesy on the cover, his style here is even deeper than before – still driven by the classic modal and bossa sounds of the 60s that you’ll remember from earlier records, yet also infused with a sense of spiritual jazz too – a vibe that’s perfect for the album’s placement on Impulse Records, where Conte’s got a way of linking together the best 60s and 70s aspects of the label’s aesthetic! He gets plenty of help in the process – wonderful vocals from the likes of Gregory Porter, José James, Alice Ricciardi, and others – trumpet from Till Bronner, Fabrizio Bosso, and Flavio Boltro – tenor from Magnus Lindgren and Tim Warfield, flute and baritone from Timo Lassey, and loads of other groovy touches too! Nicola Conte’s never let us down – and this record is a rich reward for all the faith we’ve had in him over the years – a bit like the way that Gilles Peterson’s always changing and growing, yet still always keeps true to his roots.

Sir Froderick – Heartaches & Beatbreaks

null

Sir Froderick’s true origins are something of mystery and legend. It’s told that as a baby he was found in an abandoned nightclub in East London with nothing to survive on but records and beer. Since migrating to Philadelphia, he’s been churning out beats for over 10 years. Call him alchemist or musical MacGyver, Froderick is known to find a sample in the most obscure of sources and transform it into a beat most whiplash-inducing. With influences ranging from p-funk to glitch-hop, his sound is hard to categorize, but surely something to throw your knickers at.

After an emotional seperation Froderick found himself in the lab tinkering with different sounds. The result is his poignant debut album that takes you on a roller coaster ride of emotions from that relationship

Samiyam – Sam Baker’s Album

null

Coming out with one of the most anticipated and long-awaited albums so far on Brainfeeder is Samiyam aka Sam Baker. Sam Baker’s Debut Album is 40 minutes of pure listening pleasure, a series of woozy, off-centre hip hop instrumentals drawing heavily on Baker’s love of electronic funk but never in hock to it. Intensely detailed and carrying considerable emotional weight, this is not Rap Beats Volume 2 but an album of fully-realised pieces of music which stand on their own without the need for an MC’s intervention.

Ernie Henry – Last Chorus

null

Ernie Henry was a promising alto saxophonist who passed away prematurely on December 29, 1957, when he was only 31. He had recorded his album Seven Standards and a Blues on September 30, and four songs for an uncompleted octet date on September 23. This CD reissue has the latter tunes (which feature trumpeter Lee Morgan; trombonist Melba Liston, who contributed “Melba’s Tune”; tenor saxophonist Benny Golson; and pianist Wynton Kelly), an alternate take from the Seven Standards set (“Like Someone in Love”), a leftover track from the preceding year (“Cleo’s Chant”), the solos of Thelonious Monk and Henry (from the lengthy “Ba-Lue Bolivar Ba-Lues-Are”), and an alternate version of “S’posin’” taken from the altoist’s final recording (a quartet outing with trumpeter Kenny Dorham). Overall, the music is fine and, surprisingly, does not have an unfinished air about it. It does make one wish that Ernie Henry had taken better care of his health, as he was just beginning to develop a sound of his own.

Personnel: Ernie Henry (alto saxophone); Sonny Rollins, Benny Golson (saxophone, tenor saxophone); Cecil Payne (baritone saxophone); Kenny Dorham, Lee Morgan (trumpet); Melba Liston (trombone); Kenny Drew, Thelonious Monk, Wynton Kelly (piano); Max Roach, Philly Joe Jones, Art Taylor, Wilbert G.T. Hogan (drums).

Art Taylor – Taylor’s Wailers

null

Art Taylor in an all-star sextet of mostly young players comprised of trumpeter Donald Byrd, altoist Jackie McLean, Charlie Rouse on tenor, pianist Ray Bryant, and bassist Wendell Marshall. Among the highpoints of the 1957 hard bop date are the original version of Bryant’s popular “Cubano Chant” and strong renditions of two Thelonious Monk tunes (“Off Minor” and “Well, You Needn’t”) cut just prior to the pianist/composer’s discovery by the jazz public. Bryant is the most mature of the soloists, but the three horn players were already starting to develop their own highly individual sounds. The remaining track (a version of Jimmy Heath’s “C.T.A.”) is played by the quartet of Taylor, tenor saxophonist John Coltrane, pianist Red Garland, and bassist Paul Chambers and is a leftover (although a good one) from another session.

Personnel: Art Taylor (drums); Jackie McLean (alto saxophone); John Coltrane, Charlie Rouse (tenor saxophone); Red Garland, Donald Byrd (trumpet); Ray Bryant (piano); Wendell Marshall, Paull Chambers (bass).

Stanley Turrentine – Look Out!

null

Although he is best known for his bluesy soul-jazz outings, tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine’s first Blue Note session as a leader was a much more traditional bop affair, and the resulting album, Look Out!, featuring a rhythm section of Horace Parlan on piano, George Tucker on bass, and Al Harewood on drums, shows as much artful restraint as it does groove. Not that this is a bad thing, since it allows Turrentine’s big, clear tone to shine through in all its muscular sweetness, giving Look Out! a wonderful and flowing coherence. Among the highlights here are the pretty ballad “Journey Into Melody” and the gently funky “Little Sheri.”

Personnel: Stanley Turrentine (tenor saxophone); Stanley Turrentine; George Tucker (bass instrument); Horace Parlan (piano); Al Harewood (drums).

Sam Jones – The Soul Society

null

Bassist Sam Jones’ debut as a leader resulted in one of his finest recordings, Jones is well featured on bass while the other four numbers find him playing very effective cello. The uncredited arrangements for the groups are uniformly excellent and there is solo space for cornetist Nat Adderley, trumpeter Blue Mitchell, Jimmy Heath on tenor, baritonist Charles Davis, and pianist Bobby Timmons. The repertoire is superior, too, with highlights including the debut of Adderley’s “The Old Country,” a fine jam on “Just Friends,” Keter Betts’ “Some Kinda Mean,” Jones’ bowing on “Home,” and Bobby Timmons’ “So Tired.” Actually all eight selections are memorable on this highly recommended disc.

Personnel: Sam Jones (cello, bass); Jimmy Heath (tenor saxophone); Charles Davis (baritone saxophone); Nat Adderley (cornet); Blue Mitchell (trumpet); Bobby Timmons (piano); Keter Betts (bass); Louis Hayes (drums).

Mo Kolours – EP1: Drum Talking

null

Some records seem to come out of nowhere. Witness this debut EP by the half-Mauritian percussionist & singer Mo Kolours, which unites an array of more familiar influences with the Sega music of his island roots. The rhythms lead the way here, whether the straight percussive workout of Drum Talking or the crafty vocal manipulation that drives the low-slung bump of Biddies, a song that traces an imaginary line between Theo Parrish and Gonjasufi. Dead of Night mines the symbolism of The Beatles’ outwardly chirpy Blackbird while his own Bakiraq (like Burt, the songwriter) resembles a soul classic pieced together from fragments around the flickering light of a fire.
