“The Swede Magnus Granberg has rapidly become a key member of the Another Timbre family, this being his fifth album on the label in under four years, with four of those being his own compositions. Those familiar with Granberg's past AT releases will be delighted to hear that How Deep is the Ocean, How High is the Sky? follows the familiar pattern of the others. As before, it employs material derived from another song—in this instance, Irving Berlin's "How Deep is the Ocean"—but there are few, if any, traces of the original in evidence. Instead, the piece establishes a pleasantly melancholy mood that typifies Granberg compositions.

Sonny Criss - The Complete Imperial Sessions - 1956 (Connoisseur Series) (2CD)


“This double disc reissue on Blue Note contains the three releases that alto saxophonist Sonny Criss did for Imperial: Jazz U.S.A., Go Man!, and Plays Cole Porter. These sessions were all recorded in 1956 at a time when Criss had honed his amazing bebop alto precision. These 34 performances contain only five of his originals and are surrounded by mainly standards. The bands consisted of solid lineups with Sonny Clark or Kenny Drew on piano; Barney Kessel on guitar; Leroy Vinnegar, Buddy Clark or Bill Woodson on bass; Larry Bunker on vibes; and Larance Marable or Chuck Thompson taking care of drumming duties. While Criss had a career that erratically spanned the '70s, these Imperial sessions (reissued in glorious mono) contained highly regarded performances of passionate blues, moving ballads, and energetic up- tempo pieces.” AMG

For several decades Aretha Franklin has enjoyed the accolade of being called The Queen Of Soul, a position that was cemented by her landmark 1967 pop and R&B No. 1 Respect. However, her career as a recording artist was a decade old by that time, having honed her style and singing gospel, jazz and blues- influenced material in her late teens. This great value 48-track collection brings together all of her recordings which were released through to 1962, by which time she had established a reputation as a distinctive, soulful and dynamic performer and had made early inroads in both the R&B and pop charts. It comprises her debut recordings as a gospel artist on the 10 LP Songs Of Faith, for Joe Von Battle's JVB label, made when she was just 14 years old, and then all her singles for Columbia, most of which came from her three albums for the label Aretha Franklin With The Ray Bryant Combo, The Electrifying Aretha Franklin and The Tender, The Moving, The Swinging Aretha Franklin, the complete content of which is also included, along with a track from a multi-artist Christmas compilation. It's a thorough showcase for her talent and style in the early years of her career.

There's a reason Benny Goodman was hailed as the "King of Swing." He really did have one of tightest, swingin'-est bands in the mid-1930s. As a clarinetist he was brilliant. He hired terrific singers. He recorded many of the era's top songs. Yes, you get three CDs packed with a total of 64 tracks and close to four hours of music. Yes, many of Benny's big "hits" are here ("Goody Goody," "Let's Dance," "There's a Small Hotel," etc.). It's a mixture of commercial recordings, radio "airchecks," and live concert performances (including a few tracks from the famous 1938 Carnegie Hall Concert).

Eden Atwood has my vote for the best jazz vocalist today, and that doesn't need qualifying as best female, best young, best whatever ethnic or regional background, what I'm saying is I think she is the best jazz singer today period. I had the pleasure of hearing her live, doing many of these tunes, and she is warm, wonderful, funny, but most of all totally musical and artistically compelling…
