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!

At the dawn of the Reagan years, LA jazz pianist Nate Morgan recorded his first album for Nimbus West. Finally on CD, Journey Into Nigritia portrays an artist marked by the icons of his day, and striving for reinvention. Although he came from a solid jazz background, coming up through the Pan Afrikan People's Arkestra, Morgan found more exciting work with pop bands in the seventies, including glory years with Rufus w/Chaka Khan. On Journey into Nigritia, Morgan re-embraces jazz. Included in the band are Jeff Littleton on bass, Fritz Wise on drums, and Dadisi Komolafe on alto sax.

The 1987 edition of the Brubeck Quartet featured pianist Brubeck, his son Chris on electric bass and bass trombone, clarinetist Bill Smith and drummer Randy Jones. In addition to remakes of "Blue Rondo à la Turk," "Strange Meadowlark" and "Swing Bells," the leader contributed six new originals including "I See, Satie" and a tribute to Dizzy Gillespie and Stan Getz called "Dizzy's Dream." Bill Smith, who uses electronics with taste on his clarinet during a few songs, has long been a major asset to the later Brubeck Quartets. This is one of their better Concord CDs.

When it comes to the boundary-stretching spirit that has become so widespread among many of today's leading jazz musicians, drummer Mark Guiliana deserves credit for being one of the most enthusiastic embodiments of this attitude. He has a longstanding passion for electronic music, as heard especially on the releases on his own Beat Music label (2014's My Life Starts Now and Beat Music: The Los Angeles Improvisations).

Saturday Night Fish Fry is a compilation CD on Soul Jazz Records released in 2001 that explored "New Orleans Funk & Soul". Most of the artists have one song each while Betty Harris and Eldridge Holmes have two songs each. It's a small hint of the glorious music the Crescent City has had to offer.
