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 Turkish musician Okay Temiz introduces one of his many musical expressions with jazz influenced by world music on this album. OKAY TEMIZ is considered the most important Turkish jazz musician, who worked together with musicians like Don Cherry or Bobo Stenson in the seventies. OKAY TEMIZ settled in Sweden, joined the Turkish-Swedish band SEVDA, which was very popular throughout Scandinavia, and eventually formed his own band ORIENTAL WIND, which will soon be available in two different editions, one "Swedish" and one "Swedish". Turkish ", gave. In retrospect, TEMIZ ventured with this tape first cautious steps on a new ground, which was explored much later in detail: The starting point of this ethno-jazz, which was then not so titled, was jazz; The inclusion of unusual meters (Turkish or generally Arabic) was subordinated to the jazz aspect.

As long as George Benson was a hot commodity on Warner Bros. and Creed Taylor still had control over his tottering CTI label, the flow of recycled and unreleased Benson product from his old label kept on coming. But oh, how a few years make a difference in the packaging, for the luxurious glossy gatefold covers of CTI's glory days were replaced by a bare-bones, sparsely illustrated paperboard sleeve that smacks of cost-cutting.

Ella Fitzgerald, who in the late '50s recorded the very extensive George and Ira Gershwin Songbook, revisits their music on this duet outing with pianist André Previn. Her voice was past her prime by this point, but she was able to bring out a lot of the beauty in the ten songs, giving the classic melodies and lyrics tasteful and lightly swinging treatment. Nice Work If You Can Get It is not an essential CD but is a reasonably enjoyable outing.

Electric bassist Jaco Pastorius' Word of Mouth big band made two recordings for Warner Bros. during its short life, of which is this is the superior one. The large ensemble (five trumpets including Randy Brecker, five reeds with solo space for Bobby Mintzer on tenor and soprano, four trombones, two French horns, Toots Thielemans on harmonica, drummer Peter Erskine, percussionist Don Alias, and Othello on steel drum) performs a variety of superior material. Although Pastorius takes his share of solo space, and the sound of a big band backing a bass soloist is rather unusual, he does not excessively dominate the music. Pastorius contributed some of the pieces (most notably "Liberty City"), is showcased on "Amerika," and also plays such tunes as "Invitation," "The Chicken," "Sophisticated Lady," "Giant Steps," and Gil Evans' "Eleven."
