Here is a worthwhile re-issue of a classic jazz-fusion release. The title track is just a sublime piece of midtempo magic, the kind of track would play on his much missed Radio 1 show (the music for a candlelight dinner section). gets to sing on this track. Elsewhere we get some jazz-funk instrumentals the best to my mind being the moody, downtempo with ronnie's soprano sax to the fore atop dreamy fendor rhodes. is an attractive ballad with singing again.

Two of Sonny Stitts finest sessions in a quartet setting with the illustrious pianist Hank Jones. Jones delicate piano accompaniment and tastefully sparse solos mark the perfect complement to Stitts dazzling virtuosic display. Both sessions boast exceptional rhythm sections with Tommy Potter and Roy Haynes expertly holding down the bass and drum chairs for the Stitt In Orbit session and Wendell Marshall and Shadow Wilson swinging away on all of the exciting material from the album Sonny Stitt and the New Yorkers. The two different dates also include eight original Stitt compositions and feature the leader on both tenor and alto saxophone. An outstanding release by saxophone virtuoso Sonny Stitt.

Blinking Lights and Other Revelations is a 2005 double album by Eels. It was described by E on the official website as an album about "God and all the questions related to the subject of God. It's also about hanging on to my remaining shreds of sanity and the blue sky that comes the day after a terrible storm, and it's a love letter to life itself, in all its beautiful, horrible glory." Blinking Lights is a compilation of songs recorded with a variety of Eels lineups in E's home over a span of seven years. These include some intensely personal songs, instrumental pastiches, and straightforward pop. The sleeve and liner notes are composed of typewritten lyrics and family photos, implying the personal nature of the album.

This out-of-print EmArcy LP consists of lengthy versions of "Our Love Is Here to Stay" and an original blues, "Air Conditioning." Trumpeter Maynard Ferguson is heard jamming with an all-star group of West Coast players consisting of altoist Herb Geller, Bob Cooper on tenor, baritonist Bob Gordon, trombonist Milt Bernhart, pianist Claude Williamson, bassist John Simmons and drummer Max Roach. Although the music contains no real surprises, this album has its exciting moments and will be enjoyed by bebop fans.

Not as riddled with abysmal re-recordings and poor-sounding live versions as some of the other compilations released by Mastercuts in 2005, Mastercuts: Funk Divas is a three-disc set that should come in handy for listeners who don't consider themselves experts of soul and funk from the '60s through the early '80s, but want to dig beyond the obvious classics. It's annoying that only 30 tracks are spread across the three discs (everything would've fit comfortably on two discs), but there's a decent if arbitrary assortment. A couple particularly notable inclusions: Material's "Take Care," featuring a pre-fame (and therefore pre-"Crack is wack!") Whitney Houston, and Ethel Beatty's "I Know You Care," an excellent (if hyper-repetitive) B-side from Roy Ayers' Uno Melodic label.

On June 25th, 1961, Bill Evans and his trio made jazz history over the course of five sets at the Village Vanguard. Selections from those performances were released on two full-length LPs, WALTZ FOR DEBBY and Sunday AT THE VILLAGE VANGUARD, both of which went on to become landmark jazz albums from the era. The three-disc COMPLETE VILLAGE VANGUARD RECORDINGS provides a valuable service by presenting all five sets in their complete and original sequence, with crisp remastered sound, a previously unissued take (Scott LaFaro's "Gloria's Step"), and snippets of on-stage patter.

Originally conceived by a Japanese record label, The Great Jazz Trio began with Hank Jones, Ron Carter and Tony Williams 30 years ago. Throughout many iterations, Jones has remained as a constant, as well as the concept of pairing the veteran pianist with the most exciting rhythm section of the day. In 2005, at age 86, Jones found himself in the company of another GREAT rhythm section: John Patitucci on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums. Though certainly younger than Jones, they are both veterans who have established themselves firmly as superb musicians and masters of their respective instruments.
