Blues In Orbit captures the essence of a late-night recording date that was as much a loose jam as a formal studio date, balancing the spontaneity of the former and the technical polish of the latter. If you're just getting into jazz, this album is highly recommended as a great way to initiate your collection.

"Blues in Orbit" seems to get overlooked when Ellington's best albums are discussed, but it is a real keeper. There are 11 tracks, none of them is longer than 4:50 and it is all good stuff. There are some familiar favorites like "In a Mellotone" and "C Jam Blues" as well as less often heard gems like "Blues in Blueprint and "Sweet and Pungent".

The featured performers include Ellington stalwarts Johnny Hodges, Ray Nance, Harry Carney and Jimmy Hamilton, as well as the less familiar Booty Wood and Matthew Gee. Johnny, in particular is well showcased here, taking the lead in the rousing, "Smada", which is probably my favorite track. Ray shines on his trumpet, but also gets to play the violin on "C Jam Blues". [customer review on a music store website]

Blues in Orbit was the only SACD released by the original Mobile Fidelity company just before they went under.
The SACD high-res quality reveals a lively sound picture, and it's excellent remastering blows away all CD versions.

Recorded in 1960, Piano in the Background's title is a bit of a misnomer. While it's true that Duke Ellington often didn't appear on his recordings at all and this one is designed to showcase a series of new arrangements for the Ellington Orchestra, it also offers the composer and bandleader as a pianist leading the band. All of the album's original nine cuts, as well as its five bonus tracks, are introduced by the man himself at the ivories, and he also takes each one out.

Pianura Padana, calura estiva, afa. Festival del blues a portare vita, musica, cibo e frescura nelle sere del fine settimana di una Bassa strangolata dal caldo. Durante un black-out nella calca Bruno Lomax perde di vista l'amico fotografo, Riccardo. Non verrà più trovato, come inghiottito dalla sera stessa, o dalla musica che tutto riempie e ingloba. Ma per un uomo sparito, il nulla ne fa riapparire un altro. Un uomo con cui più di una persona parla e si relaziona. Un uomo che è morto sei mesi prima? Inquieto investigatore privato dalla vita sentimentale tumultuosa ma sfortunata, Lomax si troverà a indagare sul misterioso evento che lega i due casi, tra inspiegabili omicidi, donne bellissime e personaggi bizzarri e tormentati. Una pianura che, attraverso un velo d'afa, sembra assorbire tutto, anche le vite degli altri. Un alone di mistero familiare e ineluttabile. Un'atmosfera che non risucchia la malinconia, ma le persone. Una storia trascinante e minuziosamente orchestrata, una scrittura sincopata e dissonante, al limite dell'essenziale, che del blues ha il ritmo, il cuore e l'anima.

Ann Hampton Callaway is not your typical jazz songbird. For one thing, she's an accomplished and award-winning songwriter, which is unusual in a field dominated by interpreters. But what's most surprising is her voice – it's a low alto instrument with a rich, dark, butterscotchy tone, and when she gets way down into her lower range the effect can be downright startling.

Early Blues, World | Country: Greece/USA | Label: Death Is Not The End

Death Is Not The End present a two-part collection centred on two emigrant Greek artists recorded in New York during the 1920s and 1930s. 'Greek Blues in America' explores the recordings of George Katsaros and Kostas Dousas, who mainly recorded solo, accompanying themselves on guitar in a unique finger-picking style. This, along with the sub-cultural subject matter of the rebetiko, reflects somewhat of a cross-continental echo of the American blues - captured in the USA following a wave of immigration from Greece and Asia Minor, just as the new demand for regional and ethnographic music in the recording industry was beginning.
