Reissue with SHM-CD format and new 24bit remastering. A very special album from Johnny Smith – one of the few to feature his sublime guitar sound amidst a larger string setting – which only seems to emphasize the moodier, darker tones of his instrument! The album's a lot like his My Dear Little Sweetheart set – and, like that one, it features help from conductor Irv Kostal, as well as violinist Gene Orloff – both artists with the right sort of subtle, understated approach to make sure that Johnny's six strings never get lost in the larger swirl! Most tunes are very slow-moving, which allows us to hear that Smith guitar magic in full relief – that special way that Johnny had of choosing just the right notes and colors, in just the right way.

Smooth Jazz Vagina is the first and last album by Abraxasaxophonic.

Songs #1-2 are the original release, songs #3-7 are bonus tracks. This was released on the N.G.W.T.T. ("Nothing Gets Worse Than This") label.

Improvvisare su ogni tipo di repertorio. Liberarsi dalla gabbia degli accordi per arrivare alla forma libera, alla melodia pura. È la nuova sfida di Danilo Rea, che qui si confronta con i grandi compositori classici: "L'improvvisazione nasce in Europa, loro ne erano maestri. Il jazz ha riscoperto questa attitudine, smarrita da chi oggi interpreta rigidamente le loro partiture". Rea ha scelto il piano solo, per avere massima libertà interpretativa, ma in alcuni brani spicca la voce di sua figlia Oona. "Canta tre brani originali e poi The Man I Love di Gershwin, trait d'union tra la classica e il jazz, nonché doverosa dedica al suo papà". Romantico.

When Nina Simone was in her prime as the premier African-American singer/pianist in music, there's was no popular artist who was going to touch her in terms of sheer talent. This Compact Jazz collection of 16 of her songs falls short of a greatest-hits package, as it is missing some evergreens like "I Loves You, Porgy" and "I Want a Little Sugar in My Bowl," among others. Still, it's a good cross section of her ballads, blues, jazz interpretations, and strong-willed protest and statement songs.

This split LP pairs a sextet led by multi-instrumentalist Sahib Shihab with another under the direction of Herbie Mann. Big names all the way around on this one. On the Shihab session, John Jenkins and Clifford Jordan round out the front line, while Hank Jones, Addison Farmer, and Dannie Richmond hold down the rhythm. Mann, on the other hand, is joined by Phil Woods, Eddie Costa, Joe Puma, Wilbur Ware, and Jerry Segal. Nothing overly surprising here, but one can expect quality performances by all.
