Shlohmo – Vacation EP

null

On the heels of his critically acclaimed debut full-length ‘Bad Vibes’, Shlohmo (Henry Laufer) embarks deeper into darker realms on his latest venture with Friends of Friends Music, the ‘Vacation’ EP. Self-described as “night time backyard noises”, ‘Vacation’ builds on the aesthetic Shlohmo established with mixes for FACT and FADER, in which broken cassette tapes and warped found sounds melded into melodic beats packed with veiled emotion and latent mysteriousness.

Mike Gao / Daisuke Tanabe – Finest Ego: Faces 12″ Series Vol.2

null

Project: Mooncircle & Finest Ego have teamed up to establish a fresh new 12” producer series, entitled “Faces”. On every edition, you will find two different producers. Respectively, each producer will have their own record-side and unique cover artwork by the aspring LNY, known for his surrealistic portraits, blending humans and animals.

The second edition of “Faces“ series will exhibit works by the two extraordinary producers Daisuke Tanabe and Mike Gao. Again, coming from very distinct biographical backgrounds – despite their obvious Asian descent – the two are connected through their artistic excellence and uncompromising musical creations and visions. In symbiosis with these nocturnal flying mammals they use their ultra-precise sonic waves to navigate imperturbably through dark nights, leaving their prey with no chance of escape.

Sarah Vaughan – Sarah Vaughan with Clifford Brown

null

This 1954 studio date, a self-titled album recorded for Emarcy, was later reissued as Sarah Vaughan with Clifford Brown to denote the involvement of one of the top trumpeters of the day. Vaughan sings nine intimate standards with a band including Brown on trumpet, Herbie Mann on flute, and Paul Quinichette on tenor, each of which have plenty of space for solos (most of the songs are close to the five-minute mark). Vaughan is arguably in the best voice of her career here, pausing and lingering over notes on the standards “April in Paris,” “Jim,” and “Lullaby of Birdland.” As touching as Vaughan is, however, Brown almost equals her with his solos on “Lullaby of Birdland,” “Jim,” and “September Song,” displaying his incredible bop virtuosity in a restrained setting without sacrificing either the simple feeling of his notes or the extraordinary flair of his choices. Quinichette’s solos are magnificent as well, his feathery tone nearly a perfect match for Vaughan’s voice. Ironically though, neither Brown nor Quinichette or Mann appear on the album’s highlight, “Embraceable You,” which Vaughan performs with close accompaniment from the rhythm section: Jimmy Jones on piano, Joe Benjamin on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums. Vaughan rounds the notes with a smile and even when she’s steeping to reach a few low notes, she never loses the tremendous feeling conveyed by her voice. In whichever incarnation it’s reissued, Sarah Vaughan With Clifford Brown is one of the most important jazz-meets-vocal sessions ever recorded. (allmusic)

Personnel: Sarah Vaughan (vocals); Ernie Wilkins (arranger); Paul Quinichette (tenor saxophone); Clifford Brown (trumpet); Herbie Mann (flute); Jimmy Jomes (piano); Joe Benjamin (bass); Roy Haynes (drums).

Chick Corea / Eddie Gomez / Paul Motian – Further Explorations

null

The contributions of pianist, composer, arranger and bandleader Bill Evans to the language and appreciation of jazz continue to have a profound influence on musicians. Join master pianist Chick Corea as he leads original Evans alumni – bassist Eddie Gomez and the late drummer Paul Motian – on Further Explorations, a two-CD live set of 19 tracks. The spirit of Evans comes alive thanks to the vibrant simpatico shared by these three master musicians.

Produced by Corea, Further Explorations was recorded May 4-17, 2010, live at the Blue Note in New York City. (2011 marks the 50th anniversary of the release of Evans’ original Explorations LP with Motian and bassist Scott LaFaro on the Riverside label.) In preparation, Corea, Gomez and Motian examined the entire Bill Evans discography. Rather than approach the music as a tribute, his material provides more of a template. Each musician also contributes original material. The results are inspired, as this elevated piano trio plays with near-telepathic empathy and a remarkable blend of ingenuity and emotional depth.

Ahmad Jamal – Blue Moon

null

Blue Moon is not just Ahmad Jamal’s latest album, it’s his latest masterpiece, suffused with a feeling reminiscent of his greatest periods with Chess and Impulse! Original compositions of pure majesty, brilliant new interpretations of American legends (the “film noir”, Broadway, the vast open spaces), each of these nine pieces showcases Jamal’s creative reinvention of swing, provides a pretext for some breathtaking melodies and calls on sophisticated syncopations that will leave you gasping.

Accompanied by three impeccable guardians of the tempo, Ahmad Jamal is at the peak of his art. Formerly a highly talented pianist of a type of music known as jazz, he is now the chief apostle of American classical music.

Krystal Klear & Olivier Day Soul – Never Thought You Would Go

Irish beat maker Krystal Klear and Washington DC soul star Olivier Day Soul team up for the anthemic winter love song ‘Never Thought You Would’ Tipping it’s cap firmly to the early 90′s RnB era, both artist deliver possibly the best performances of their career. It’s been too long since grown folks had something romantic to swoon over, this is a winter tale of heart break and lost love that you can still step to. Think Mtume, Bobby Brown, Loose Ends, Janet Jackson with 2012 twist. B Side ‘Waist My Time’ is a straight up New Jack club banger, If you where born in the 80′s then you’ll know what to do! Grab a girl and get on the floor!

Lou Donaldson – The Natural Soul

null

The Natural Soul finds Lou Donaldson delving deeply into soul-jazz, recording a set of funky, greasy instrumentals with only a few references to hard bop. Donaldson occasionally sounds a little awkward with the relaxed groove of The Natural Soul, as does trumpeter Tommy Turrentine, but the trio of guitarist Grant Green, organist John Patton, and drummer Ben Dixon keep things cooking. Green and Patton’s solos often burn and are always invigorating, and Lou frequently matches their heights. The original compositions — which form the bulk of the album — aren’t much more than blues and soul vamps, but they provide an excellent foundation for the combo to work hot grooves. And, in the end, that’s what The Natural Soul is about — groove. It maintains the high standards Donaldson established with his first soul-jazz foray, Here ‘Tis, and remains one of his best records in that genre. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Personnel: Lou Donaldson (alto saxophone); Grant Green (guitar); Tommy Turrentine (trumpet); Big John Patton (organ); Ben Dixon (drums).

Tina Brooks – Back To The Tracks

null

Back to the Tracks is an album by hard-bop tenor Tina Brooks recorded in 1960 and released posthumously. The tracks first appeared on a Mosaic 12″ LP (MR4-106) entitled The Complete Blue Note Recordings of The Tina Brooks Quintets. The album was originally intended as BLP 4052, but, for some reason, it was shelved at the time. Only on January 27, 1998, Rudy Van Gelder decided to release the session in its entirety on a remastered Blue Note CD (purple cover, Blue Note 21737), then reissued in 2006 (green cover, BST 84052). Both editions are now out-of-print. A song recorded during the session, “David the King”, was rejected since it “never made it to releasable quality”. Said piece, however, made it to Brooks’ final recording for Blue Note, The Waiting Game.

Personnel: Tina Brooks (tenor saxophones); Kenny Drew (piano); Paul Chambers (bass); Art Taylor (drums); Blue Mitchell (trumpet); Jackie MCLean (alto saxophone).
