Similar to Grover Washington Jr.'s Winelight album this album is not for jazz purists but for those who want beautiful arrangements, some with a funky beat, some soulful and romantic. This is perfect music for a dinner party or a romantic interlude.
This is the epitome of "Smooth Jazz", that is to say, very commercial and very listenable. I know, this is much more "pop" and "soul" music than jazz, but for the right purpose it's ejoyable music !!

Nobody played small band blues better than Basie and thanks to Pablo records for releasing so many of these sessions. The formula was simple. Put Basie in a studio with some experienced jazz men and turn on the tape machine! And this session featured Eddie lockjaw Davis on sax, Snooky Young on muted trumpet, and Joe Pass on electric guitar. The songs are relaxed and bluesy, all done Basie style. The sessions must have been a joy to record. lots of bluesy riffing, lots of great soloing, and more Basie piano than on any of his big band recordings. It's sad most of these great musicians are no longer with us, but it's good that the music is still available for us to enjoy.

Three years before his death in 1986 Teddy Wilson recorded this solo piano album in Japan. All tracks are well known standards, but Teddy makes them sound in his familiar and unmatched way. A real must have for his fans, because this album is very hard to find.

Hank Jones is one of the most gifted jazz pianists of the second half of the 20th century, and this salute to Duke Ellington is only slightly blemished by the sometimes overbearing string arrangements by Masahiko Satoh. His trio, with bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Jimmy Cobb, sticks to familiar selections from the vast Ellington songbook, with Jones occasionally switching to a Fender Rhodes electric piano or celeste. Happily the strings are omitted from cookers such as "C Jam Blues" and "Take the 'A' Train."

This is probably the best late Milt Jackson together with the album "Soul Fusion" (with pianist Monty Alexander). Milt is brilliant as usual. Ray Brown is steady as a rock. Gene Harris plays electric keyboard and piano like a champ - he is very very good! Try to sit still to this swingin blues oriented jazz. You'll have to superglue your right foot to the floor to be able to do that! Highest Recommendations!

The biggest volume so far in the Spiritual Jazz series from Jazzman Records – and maybe the best as well! This fantastic collection looks at the huge legacy of spiritual jazz that flowed from the Japanese scene in the postwar years – sounds that had their initial expression around the same time that the modal jazz of Miles and Coltrane was bursting forth in the US, but which also too so many twists and turns of its own – with some very strong influences along the way from Japanese folk and culture! Much of this music was initially restricted only to release on Japanese labels – and even later, as some of the artists attained fame, the global circulation of their music only happened with more commercial recordings.

Reissue with the latest remastering and the original cover artwork. Comes with a description written in Japanese. Ferdinand Povel's one of those players we never seem to get enough of – a tenorist who may not be one of the bigger stars on the European scene, but one who always finds a way to serve up something special! Povel's got a nice edge in his horn at times – a mode that's always inside, but often sharply spoken – even when he's going for some mellower moments too – a bit of old school bite in the way he approaches the reed, maybe – and a definite sense of attack that really comes on when he's in a more swinging mode! The group here has some great guitar from Wim Overgaauw, whose ringing tones bring a bright balance between Povel's horn and the piano of Frans Elsen – and the rest of the group features Victor Kaihatu on bass and Ruud Pronk on drums.

The quirky music of the Microscopic Septet defies classification, other than it is swinging jazz blended with R&B and a host of other influences, full of twists and turns, yet remaining very catchy and accessible. Their debut LP originally came out on the Press label and was finally reissued as a Koch CD in 1998. Much like the musicians that made up Spike Jones' City Slickers in the 1940s, only some very talented players could follow these demanding charts; yet unlike the comparison to Jones' records, there is nothing that is obviously or purely cornball about this music.

Reissue with the latest remastering and the original cover artwork. Comes with a description written in Japanese. One of the first Dutch bands - if not the first - to perform purely Brazilian music, but not with the bossa nova's until then, but with his own compositions that radiate power and are compelling. Founders Josee Koning (vocals) and Peter Schön (keyboards, compositions) devise as a trademark for this approach: two percussionists on stage, live and in the mix on the record.
