When producer Norman Granz decided to let Charlie Parker record standards with a full string section (featuring Mitch Miller on oboe!), the purists cried sellout, but nothing could be further from the truth. There's a real sense of involvement from Bird on these sides, which collect up all the master takes and also include some live tracks from Carnegie Hall that - judging from the sometimes uneasy murmurings of the crowd - amply illustrate just how weirdly this mixture of bop lines against "legit" arrangements was perceived. The music on this collection is lush, poetic, romantic as hell, and the perfect antidote to a surfeit of jazz records featuring undisciplined blowing. There's a lot of jazz, but there's only one Bird.

This Horace Silver CD compilation is yet another in the series of unauthorized reissues by the European bootleg label Giants of Jazz. With a dozen selections taken from five separate sessions originally recorded by the pianist for Blue Note, it is a good cross section of his early dates as a leader, though the mediocre sound, with its unexpected channel shifts and dropouts, is extremely annoying.

Jazz musicians keep dying. Perhaps this is not surprising, as jazz is nearing its centenary. Last year's list of losses included British tenor-saxist Danny Moss, who made a name for himself playing in bands led by such people as Vic Lewis, Ted Heath and John Dankworth, before moving to Australia in 1989. He returned from the Antipodes nearly every year to tour in Britain, and this album was recorded on one of those visits in 2007. Danny died eight months later, and this CD is a good reminder of his considerable abilities.

The photograph on the cover might throw some people off, but this album is a compilation of songs from Don's small group dates from the early 60s, "How Time Passes," "Out Of Nowhere," and "Essence." The packaging is kind of generic, but the CD was issued by the Giants of Jazz label with the good intention that more of Don's recordings should be available to the public…a sentiment with which I couldn't agree more. I would recommend seeking out the original albums to get the full program of each, but since "Essence" has been out of print for decades, the four tracks pulled from that album are worth the bargain price of this CD. The booklet includes a brief timeline of Don's career.

Genre: Instrumental

To those of you who think they know Brassens's songs and can hum them any time from shower to shower, this CD is more than a resfresher. Brassens brings his own guitar talent to a band of highly-skilled jazz musicians - the piano, trumpet and guitar sounds are just breathtaking. Rythms are revisited to make you dance on Brassens now, and to the jazz lovers this CD will be a passionate illumination on what a genial and bizarre song-writer could do in jazz too. This CD will never leave my home!

Giants of jazz play Brassens est une compilation de chansons de Brassens enregistrée en 1979 par des musiciens de jazz.
L'album est essentiellement instrumental. Georges Brassens chante une chanson (Elégie à un rat de cave) et un refrain (Le temps passé) et joue de la guitare dans chaque titre.

Ce disque sur lequel Brassens joue du reste de la guitare, introuvable chez la plupart des disquaires, est une perle absolument incontournable.
S'il ne devait y en avoir qu'un, ce serait celui-là !

Le Temps Ne Fait Rien A l'Affaire, digne de Sydney Bechet, vous tirera des larmes, vous l'écouterez en boucle.
La leçon de piano de La Femme d'Hector vous laissera baba. Vous danserez sur P… De Toi, vous chanterez Le Vent à tue-tête.

Nul besoin d'être spécialiste de jazz : chaque morceau est interprété dans un style différent, mais toujours très musical et souvent entraînant. Très facile à écouter.

Même si vous n'aimez pas ou ne connaissez pas ou peu les chansons de Brassens, laissez-vous porter à découvrir ces mélodies

Label: Savoy Jazz | Rel: 2002

This excellent three-disc set contains 64 great songs performed by Dizzy Gillespie and company in varied settings. Odyssey: 1945-1952 chronicles the master trumpeter in small groups, big bands, a session with strings, and also some blues. Among the rare treats on the collection are a full-fledged Gillespie big band score "Interlude (A Night in Tunisia)," performed here with the Boyd Raeburn Orchestra, where Gillespie worked for a couple of weeks at a time in both 1944 and 1945. The inimitable "Groovin' High" is played by the Dizzy Gillespie Sextet of which Charlie Parker, Cozy Cole, and Slam Stewart were members. The song is heard here as a classic bebop contrafact based on the chord progression of "Whispering," which became a million-seller for Paul Whiteman.
