While the first “Fahrt ins Blaue” (journey into the blue/unknown) album from ACT in 2016 offered classy songs for chilling, a great place just to hang out and relax, the new album “FiB II - groovin' in the spirit of jazz” leads us straight out onto the dance floor. From the moment it opens up, with funky jazz, gritty blues and bucketloads of soul, this compilation sets the tone for a night of partying.

Since they started out, eight years ago, the Kora Jazz Trio have toured all over the world and released three remarkable recordings. Today, the pianist Abdoulaye Diabate´ continues to pioneer the astonishing dialogue he initiated involving two solo instruments emblematic of radically different musical cultures - the Western piano and the African kora. He has brought new band members to the fore, all the better to develop and explore new musical pastures. The Kora Jazz Band is therefore a new generation Kora Jazz Trio - a formation that brings us new sonic textures, new breathing space and greater scope.

Album "Laokoon", to autorskie dzieło Krzysztofa Zgrai. Płyta została nagrana w 1981 roku i wydana w serii Polish Jazz pod numerem 64. Krzysztof Zgraja to muzyk wybitny. Można stwierdzić bez przesady, że jest pierwszym z prawdziwego zdarzenia flecistą w historii polskiej sceny jazzu i jako pierwszy pokazał, czym może być ten instrument w rękach wirtuoza, obdarzonego nadzwyczajną inwencją improwizacyjną.

One of the least known Miles Davis recordings around, this release contains the complete Amsterdam Concertgebouw Broadcast recorded on December 8, 1957 with the talented tenor saxophonist Barney Wilen and the René Urtreger quartet. A recording which has remained virtually unavailable on any format for decades, Lone Hill Jazz is proud to put this hidden gem back into circulation. Although the sound quality is imperfect, the outstanding performances by the musicians most notably Miles himself more than make up for it.

The Jazz in Paris: Jazz and Cinema series of Verve CD reissues examines jazz recorded for French film soundtracks in the late '50s and early '60s. This third compilation is the least successful of the first three, as few of the tracks stand on their own merit away from the movies they accompanied. Written for the film Les Loups Dans la Bergerie, the compositions of Serge Gainsbourg might be labeled cool, though they are rarely given time to develop and feature no major soloists in Alan Gouraguer's arrangements. Less successful are Andre Hodeir's somewhat boppish charts for Les Tripe au Soleil, which have extremely distracting scat vocals by Christiane Legrand that frequently seem off-key. The best of the lot is a remake of four songs composed by Freddie Redd for The Connection, which began life as a play…

Recorded in 1969, best known under the 1977 US reissue by Catalyst Records, Matrix is the first album as a leader of Masabumi Kikuchi featuring Tetsuo Fushimi & Hideyuki Kikuchi (if one ignores the album duet with Terumasa Hino in 1968). Matrix is obviously a masterpiece, released after significant experience years as sideman, close to various Jazz masters, it was conceived, reciprocally, on the saxophone overtones occurred by Hideyuki Kikuchi alongside Akio Nishimura on tenor. The track list constits in great variations selection of standards & covers rearranged with brio by Kikuchi, from Chick Corea (the amazing piano run "Matrix"), the modal "On A Green Dolphin Street" (based on the 1958 Miles Davis version), the Jazz Rock Baroque (Kikuchi using harpsichord) "If I Said The Sky Was Falling" composed for the TV drama "Matte Masu Wa" by Sadao Watanabe, and the bossa "Black Orpheus" composed by Luiz Bonfa, including two own compositions that completes magnificently the album : the original ballad, reminiscent of John Coltrane, "Little Aby", & "In Fourth Way".

Most of this CD is the complete output by Curtis Mosby & His Dixieland Blue Blowers, one of the top jazz bands active in Los Angeles in the 1920s. Although the soundtrack from its appearance in the 1929 movie Hallelujah is not here, this disc has the first-time release of two numbers from a scratchy 1924 test pressing. Otherwise, the eight selections and four alternate takes from 1927-1929 are full of spirit and strong musicianship, with highlights including "Weary Stomp," "Whoop 'Em Up Blues," "Blue Blower's Blues," "Hardee Stomp," and three versions of "Tiger Stomp."

The Pleiades are an open star cluster in the constellation Taurus. One of the nearest such clusters to Earth, the Seven Sisters (as they're also known) comprise middle-aged, hot B-type stars which can be viewed by Earthlings in the night sky without a telescope. The nine brightest stars of the cluster are named for the Seven Sisters of Greek mythology and their parents.
