Kids Live at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola (2007)

Joe Lovano & Hank Jones - Kids Live at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola (2007)

Recorded Live at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola in New York City

Joe Lovano on saxophones Hank Jones on piano

Lady Luck
Charlie Chan
Little Rascal on a Rock
Kids Are Pretty People
Oh, What A Beautiful Mornin'
Oh! Look at Me Now!
Four In One
Lazy Afternoon



At this stage in his remarkable career, the lovely fall of his prime as it were, any recording featuring Hank Jones is apt to be viewed as a conversation piece, at least to some extent. The pianist is, after all, on the verge of celebrating his 89th birthday.

Kids, however, is a series of delightful conversations in itself, inspired by a collection of swing, bop and pop tunes. Those familiar with the pair’s recent Blue Note recordings—2004’s I’m All for You—Ballad Songbook and 2005’s Joyous Encounter—will recognize certain traits, not least being Jones’ attentive and unfussy accompaniments. But on this intimate date, recorded live in Manhattan, what’s particularly apparent is the ease with which Lovano and Jones exchange ideas while complementing not just each other but also the tune at hand. The duo’s performances cover a lot of ground, from vibrantly animated bop flag-wavers (“Budo” and the Lovano-penned “Charlie Chan”) to hauntingly soulful balladry (“Lazy Afternoon,” the album’s soprano-limned coda).

Yes, strictly speaking, Kids is Lovano’s latest release, and his performances are typically expressive and assured. But Jones isn’t making a cameo here. He’s an equal partner throughout, and his playing is sometimes marked by a liveliness that can be traced back to the era of two-fisted swing and stride. Each musician contributes an original piece with Jones’ “Lullaby” providing a waltzing interlude. And, once again, the duo honors the memory of Thad Jones, the pianist’s late brother, by celebrating his songbook with as much ingenuity as affection

Review by Scott Yanow

This excellent set from guitarist Jimmy Bruno can easily be divided into two. The first four numbers (which include “Move” and “Grooveyard”) showcase Bruno in a trio with bassist Craig Thomas and drummer Vince Ector; the guitarist mostly swings quite hard. The other six songs feature the great altoist Bobby Watson, who takes spirited solos on “Segment,” “Au Privave,” and “Anthropology,” adding to the intensity and drive of this high-quality bop set. There are some quieter moments, including an alto/guitar duet on “These Foolish Things,” but the uptempo tunes are most memorable.

An extended previously unissued live performance by one of the true masters of jazz guitar. Two hours of never heard solos by Jimmy Raney recorded in the year of his musical comeback. 

From 1967 to 1974, the great guitarist Jimmy Raney (1927-1995) went into semi-retirement in Louisville, and didn't make a single trip to the recording studios. Whether this was due to personal problems (like his growing alcohol addiction) or to the lack of interest by the major recording companies, his discography presents a notable gap of almost ten years, which is only represented by a couple of live recordings. 

Recorded with amateur equipment on December 17 & 18, 1974 at New York's famous Bradley's club, the concerts on this CD occurred just after Raney's comeback. Like many other great jazzmen, Jimmy Raney had a unique musical sound, which encompassed both modern and traditional styles. 

Considering that this is an amateur recording made at a crowded club, the sound quality here is obviously not up to Gambit's usual standards. However, we felt that the musical and historical importance of these performances more than compensated for any deficiencies on the original masters. 

A very spare and stripped down live date from Jimmy Raney -- one that mostly just features bass accompaniment, plus a bit of extra rhythm guitar on a few tracks! The unfettered sound is quite unique, and a great opportunity to hear Raney's talents on the guitar during this under-recorded point in his career -- and the live date marks one of the first moments of a mid-70s comeback that showed Jimmy as more imaginative on his solos than ever! Most tracks are quite long and open -- with bass from Bill Takas, plus extra rhythm guitar from Eric Diehl on 5 of the 16 numbers on the 2CD set. Titles include "I Love You", "I Remember You", "Darn That Dream", "Billie's Bounce", "Out Of Nowhere", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Motion", "Days Of Wine & Roses", and "Indiana/Donna Lee".

Not a hi-fi recording, I guess it is motly for die-hard jazz guitar fans. A great, rare chance to hear Jimmy Raney performing live in the 70's, however.

Charlie Parker At Storyville - 1953

Label : Blue Note 1953

Recorded at Storyville, Boston, Massachusetts on September 22, 1953

Charlie Parker saxophone Herb Pomeroy trumpet Roy Haynes, Kenny Clarke drums
Red Garland, Sir Charles Thompson piano Billy Griggs, Jimmy Wood bass

1. Moose The Mooche (5:16)
2. I'll Walk Alone (4:57)
3. Ornithology (4:27)
4. Out Of Nowhere (4:37)
5. Now's The Time (4:19)
6. Don't Blame Me (5:02)
7. Dancing On The Ceiling (2:31)
8. Cool Blues (4:54)
9. Groovin' High (5:05)
Total time : 41:08

Recorded at two 1953 Boston club dates, AT STORYVILLE is an album of loose, energetic and mightily swinging music. The first half of the record, which features the great pianist Red Garland in his only recorded date with Parker, is slightly peppier than the later session. Garland is still developing his style here, and his playing has a certain suaveness and bounce that reflects the influence of swing era pianists like Nat "King" Cole. Parker is loose and fiery, pushing the band ahead with a stream of energetic, serpentine solos.

On the second date, Bird's playing is somewhat more lyrical and subdued. He does seem to perk up on "Cool Blues," however, perhaps spurred on by the punchy, immaculately phrased trumpet work of Herb Pomeroy. While some have suggested that Parker's talents were in decline in the '50s, AT STORYVILLE was recorded less than two years before Bird's death and clearly demonstrates he was still capable of playing with his typical humor, pure tone and flawless feel.

Cannonball Adderley Quintet At The Philharmonic Paris (1960)

Thanks to Myna Cool-Jazzger

Capturing the entirety of one of Norman Granz's legendary Jazz at The Philharmonic sets, complete with an effusive introduction by Granz himself, PARIS 1960 is one of the best of the many live recordings of Julian "Cannonball" Adderley. The 55-minute set finds the alto saxophonist at a pivotal point in his career, as he was moving away from hard bop into the funkier, more groove-oriented, but no less technically masterful soul-jazz style that made him a star in the '60s.
The opening "Jeannine" is a hard-bop standard, but the Adderley quintet, featuring (as always) his brother Nat on cornet, stretches it out, sounding relaxed yet still intense. "The Chant," which Adderley had just recorded with his sideline group (the Pollwinners, featuring Wes Montgomery), sounds completely different--but no less outstanding--in its guitar-less arrangement. PARIS 1960 is essential for Adderley fans.

This live concert was released on a 1986 double album, Live at the Montreal Jazz Festival 1985. Pianist Ahmad Jamal dig into three originals, an obscurity, Jack DeJohnette's "Ebony," and a trio of jazz standards (including "Footprints"). This particular group is often reminiscent of Jamal's trios of the '50s, although with more modern bass playing and some denser piano than before.

Ahmad Jamal Live at Oil Can Harry's
rapidshare side 1 _ side 2

Review by Scott Yanow
It is a pity that this LP is long out of print (and that the Catalyst label went out of business quite awhile ago), for it gives listeners an excellent example of the playing of pianist Ahmad Jamal in the mid-1970s. His group (comprised of guitarist Calvin Keys, bassist John Heard, drummer Frank Gant and Seldon Newton on conga) was temporarily larger than usual, and Jamal stretches out on three originals (including "Effendi") and a lengthy remake of his biggest hit, "Poinciana."
