“Strange Fruit”

Miles Davis At Newport Jazz Festival '58

Recorded live at Newport Jazz Festival, RI, July 3, 1958

Miles Davis (trumpet)
John Coltrane (tenor sax)
Cannonball Adderley (alto sax)
Bill Evans (piano)
Paul Chambers (bass)
Jimmy Cobb (drums)

1. Introduction By Willis Connover
2. Ah-Leu-Cha
3. Straight, No Chaser
4. Fran-Dance
5. Two Bass Hit
6. Bye Bye Blackbird
7. The Theme



While most of this music on Miles Davis at Newport 1958 has appeared on either the Miles and Monk At Newport compilation or the Newport Jazz Festival Live album, this is the first time that the material has been presented in its entirety. The personnel in the sextet had changed slightly by this time. Red Garland and Philly Joe Jones were replaced by revolutionary pianist Bill Evans and newcomer Jimmy Cobb on drums. Especially notable in this performance was the way Coltrane's abilities had progressed. But even though the group was bursting with musical inspiration and fresh ideas, Miles was still the undisputed heart and soul of the band. Several of the tracks performed here came from 'Round About Midnight and Milestones; but in the live setting, the music soars and the interaction between the artists is remarkable. Unlike Jazz at The Plaza, recorded just two months later, this album was intended for commercial release and the sound quality is much better as well.

Newport 1957. Teddy Wilson / Gerry Mulligan / Bill Evans

Recorded at Newport Jazz Festival 1957

A1 - Stompin' At the Savoy
A2 - Airmail Special
A3 - Basin Street Blues
A4 - I Got Rhythm
A5 - Sweet Georgia Brown (+ Mulligan)

B1 - Sweet Georgia Brown

B4 - Dancing in the Dark
B5 - I Love You (Bill Evans)
B6 - It's Wonderful (Bill Evans)


ape+cover (LP) 267 MB
A1 - A2 .:. B1 - B2

Although in 1957 some listeners considered swing and cool jazz to be at the extreme poles of the jazz world, this LP, recorded at that year's Newport Jazz Festival, shows just how similar the two idioms were. The Teddy Wilson Trio (with bassist Milt Hinton and drummer Specs Powell) plays lightly swinging versions of four swing era standards and welcomes baritonist Gerry Mulligan to sit in on a spirited rendition of "Sweet Georgia Brown," and then Jeru's quartet (with trombonist Bob Brookmeyer, bassist Joe Benjamin, and drummer Dave Bailey) plays cooly exciting versions of "My Funny Valentine" and "Utter Chaos"; one could easily imagine Wilson helping out on those two songs. Strangely enough, this LP reissue of the original set also contains three standards by the Don Elliott Quartet with pianist Bill Evans, but never lists the full personnel (mellophonist Elliott, bassist Ernie Furtado, and drummer Al Beldini) or acknowledges the music in the liner notes. Worth acquiring anyway. Review by Scott Yanow

The St. Nick's date was privately recorded by tenor saxophonist Don Lanphere with the collaboration of trombonist Jimmy Knepper (who was best known for his multiple collaborations with Charles Mingus and for being knocked out by Mingus during a dispute, Knepper also wrote the original liner notes for the first issue of St. Nicks).

Some of the other reviews for this album were dissapointing for me to read because this has been one of my favorite records since I bought it 3 years ago. It is recorded by tape when the technology was brand new. It is also edited so you hear nothing but Bird's solos and Melodys. However, he sounds absolutely incredible! Any Bird fanatic would agree. Charlie Parker fans aren't listening to him for the great recording quality, we're interested in what he's going to come up with next. Buy this album now, hear why people are still transfixed by his melodys. The shinning tracks are Visa, I Didn't Know What Time it Was and Embraceable You. Disregard everything anyone else says about this record; if you're into Bird just buy it. And contrary to what Mr. Texas said Bird definately soars. ~ Amazon

Just three months before his death, pianist BIll Evans was extensively recorded at the Village Vanguard. Originally, one or two LPs were to be released featuring his brilliant new trio (with bassist Marc Johnson and drummer Joe LaBarbera), but after the innovative pianist's death, the project was stalled for over 15 years. Finally, when Warner Bros. got around to it, a definitive six-CD box set was released (although unfortunately in limited-edition form). Evans sounded quite energized during his last year, Johnson was developing quickly as both an accompanist and a soloist, and the interplay by the trio members (with subtle support from LaBarbera) sometimes bordered on the telepathic. The playing throughout these consistently inventive performances ranks up there with the Evans-Scott LaFaro-Paul Motian trio of 20 years earlier.

part1 : part2

The name Lennie Tristano was conspicuously absent from Ken Burns' monolithic jazz documentary. That's no small omission; Tristano's group, which included the saxophonists Warne Marsh and Lee Konitz (also ignored by Burns) was the first to record what later came to be known as free jazz -- music improvised without pre-ordained melodies, harmonies, or meter. Needless to say, that wasn't mentioned by Burns, either. Tristano did it in 1949, the year this record was recorded, with what is essentially the same band (Konitz is absent here, though he was a regular member of Tristano's group at the time). This record gives no direct evidence of the band's free jazz experiments -- although Tristano is given composer's credit on all cuts, the disc is comprised mostly of standard harmonic frameworks played without reference to theme. However, it does reflect the band's prevailing emphasis on unfettered linear improvisation. The quintet tracks here were recorded by the group's bassist, Arnold Fishkin, during performances at the old Birdland in New York. The solo piano cuts were recorded in Chicago, four years earlier. The sound's rough, but not unlistenable, especially given the historical implication of the music. Listening to this is like being a fly on the wall of the world's most famous jazz club, witnessing history in the making. It really can't be said that Tristano's piano style was cut from whole cloth -- there's too much of a Bud Powell influence -- but there have been few musicians on any instrument who played with more spontaneous melodic invention. Two others who did were Marsh and guitarist Billy Bauer, also present here; this band placed great importance of creating "in the moment," and listening to this music made over 50 years ago reminds listeners of the value in such an approach. Little jazz being made at the turn of the millennium rivals this set in terms of raw creativity. Popular misconceptions aside, this is an important document.
