This collection on the U.K.'s Soul Brother imprint is a very compelling look at a big slice of Freddie Hubbard's long career as a leader, and one that gets ignored for the most part. Hubbard recorded over 20 records between Backlash, his Atlantic debut in 1966, and Ride Like the Wind for Elektra in 1982, with lengthy stops at Columbia and CTI (as well some straight hard bop and post-bop outings for labels Fantasy and Pablo). In many cases, some of these original recordings were not only disregarded by more traditional jazzheads, they were regarded with outright hostility. It didn't matter to Hubbard, however, because at the time, these were among his best-selling albums and connected with the public deeply.

Sunsoul Orchestra - What Matters Most (2015)  Music

MP3 CBR 320 kbps | Tracks: 11 | 46:31 min | 107 Mb
Style: RnB, Pop, Nu-Jazz | Label: Gumbo Child Productions

Their debut album, What Matters Most has been a labor of love over the past 5 years and finally releases worldwide, physically and digitally on April 28th, 2015. On the surface it would seem that Los Angeles, California based Stevo and Ginger could not come from more disparate planets in the musical universe. Ginger came up in the highly structured, extremely regimented world of classical music training, while Stevo got most of his training on the job - at first playing nightclubs and Gigging locally, then graduating into the world of international touring and recording.

Elvin Jones - Genesis (1971) {2011 Music Matters 45RPM 2xLP} (24-96 vinyl rip)
Vinyl rip @ 24/96 | FLAC | Scans | 827 MB | Label: Blue Note | USA pressing
Genre: jazz, post-bop | RAR 5% | Rec. CAT #MMBST 84369 / BST 84369 | 2011

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.

Vinyl rip @ 24/96 | FLAC | Artwork | 965 MB
Genre: jazz, hard bop | RAR 5% Rec. | Label: Music Matters | CAT #MMBST-1576

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.
