Compilation CD released in 2004 by Starbuck Coffee's on-line music magazine Hear Music. Their "Artists Choice" series offer compilations hand-picked by artists with established credibility (e.g. Lucinda Williams and Ray Charles). The 14 songs chosen by the lovely Norah Jones for this CD includes "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" from The Band. In an ad explaining the songs she chose, Ms. Jones described the musical influences in her life as – "the songs she heard in the car when she was a kid, the importance of Ray Charles, and why she loves the sound of Levon Helm's voice".

The graphics are kind of dull on this late-period Blue Note LP, but the music is anything but boring. Elvin Jones' band had expanded during 1969-71 from a pianoless trio to a three-horn quintet. With Dave Liebman and the returning Joe Farrell on tenors and sopranos and Frank Foster contributing some tenor, alto flute and bass clarinet (bassist Gene Perla completes the group), it would not be an overstatement to call this a powerful unit. On five originals by band members (best-known is Jones' "Three Card Molly"), the musicians take long, heated solos that straddle the boundary between hard bop and the avant-garde. Their album (not yet out on CD) has plenty of invigorating music.

Recorded in 1957, Sonny's Crib features a front line of Curtis Fuller, Donald Byrd, and John Coltrane with Sonny Clark on piano, Art Taylor on drums, and Paul Chambers on bass. Truly still a bebop recording, done a full year before the landmark Cool Struttin' session, nonetheless the set produced some awesome readings of classic tunes, like the opener, "With a Song in My Heart," with one of the knottiest Byrd solos ever. As Chambers and Taylor up the rhythmic ante and Clark comps with enormous chords in the background, the entire line solos, but it is Byrd's that is stunning in its complexity – though Coltrane could play bebop as well as anybody.

Its evident from hearing the jazz big band works of composer, arranger, conductor and trombonist Henry Wolking’s debut album on Big Round Records, IN SEA, that he effectively mixes complexity with simplicity in his jazz harmonies and colorful orchestrations that make for an exciting and memorable listening experience. The inspired solo work of band members and guest artists add to the sincere and fresh cosmopolitan character of the recording.

Harlem, 1926. Joe Trace un venditore cinquantenne di cosmetici, uccide Dorcas, la giovane amante di diciotto anni. Al funerale della ragazza, Violet, la moglie di Joe, cerca di sfigurarne il cadavere. Questa è in sintesi la trama del romanzo, ultima, superba prova del Premio Nobel Toni Morrison. Ma il significato e il valore dell’opera si collocano ben oltre il puro intreccio. Essa è soprattutto un ritratto della società nera che una voce narrante - uomo o donna? al lettore la risposta - intesse con un racconto il cui ritmo ricorda il jazz e che spazia tra la New York degli anni Venti, dall’incedere frenetico, e la Virginia del 1880, dall’atmosfera più lenta e lirica. Joe e Violet rappresentano quel flusso migratorio di neri che all’inizio del Novecento lasciò le zone rurali per riversarsi nella Città: ed è in quel mondo segnato dal razzismo e dalla segregazione che si sviluppa una love story a tre, carica di passione e tragedia.

Jazz Loves Disney was recorded between Paris, London and Los Angeles by a dream cast. It is incredibly coherent, as if all participants had agreed to pay a rightful tribute to the most beautiful and symbolic tunes of Walt Disneys magic world, as if nothing was too good for the stars when they revisited the classics and the sweet childhood memories connected to them. This is the ultimate proof of the impact Disney has had on generations of jazz musicians, including the ones taking part in Jazz Loves Disney.
