Very nice set of Mingus' legendary Candid recordings – produced in 1960, after Mingus angrily departed Columbia records, and was finally given the freedom to work in the way that he wanted. The recordings are some of Mingus best – and they feature a righteous anger and sheer jazz power that's unmatched by few other recordings.

Mel Torme was known in his early years for his voice's rich, smoky-hued texture. Indeed, such was the smooth, flawless nature of his vocal delivery that he almost seemed to caress the melody of each song he sang. He continues to be regarded as one of the pre-eminent singers of the latter half of the 20th century. Significantly his influence can still be heard, most notably in the music provided by today's new generation of jazz crooners. "In A Soulful Mood" was originally recorded in 1956 in Hollywood for the legendary Bethlehem label. Torme's smooth, soft vocal timbre can be heard on this fantastic 14 track album.

Jazz pianist Beegie Adair's series of "romantic songs" songbook albums, devoted to the major songwriters of the interwar era (there are also titles for George Gershwin, Hoagy Carmichael, Irving Berlin, and Richard Rodgers), tend to have photographs of affectionate couples on the covers, as does this one, featuring the music of Duke Ellington. That's a signal that the recordings are intended to accompany the listeners on their own romantic adventures, as much as express the feelings of the songwriters.

"Exotic and Latin albums were big deals in the 1950s and early '60s, and singers as diverse as Dean Martin, Lena Horne, and Peggy Lee were recording with castanets and bongo drums. Peggy Lee was so successful at the style that she cut two albums of light pseudo-Latin jazz in 1960. Like Peggy Lee, Julie London combined a restrained vocal approach with jazz phrasing and a cool attitude with icy sex appeal…"

In Memoriam. RIP Mr. Buddy. Buddy De Franco, a highly accomplished and exquisite jazz clarinetist who began his career in several leading swing bands of the 1940s before pivoting to bebop in the late 1940s and early '50s and teaming with leading jazz artists throughout the LP era, died on Dec. 24. He was 91. The album may be laidback, but it's hardly mellow at all – thanks to the presence of Sonny Clark on piano! The session's one of those great 50s pairings of Clark's piano and the clarinet of Buddy DeFranco – proof not only that Buddy could sound pretty darn soulful when he wanted, but also that he was always willing to grow and bring in some new ideas to his music.

An album with a compilation of 17 musical pieces by Stamatis Spanoudakis best described as under a “classical mood”. Lovely melodic and rythmical music orchestrated by the composer in his unique and very characteristic way. A variety of soloists, percussions and orchestras, embelish his tunes while complementing and enhancing his “classical mood”.
