Jazz / Bop / Hard Bop / Trombone

This two CD set features the complete recordings of Jimmy Cleveland as a leader. Trombonist Cleveland closely follows in the footsteps of the great J.J. Johnson. Fluid, dynamic solos over the great ensemble writing of Quincy Jones, Benny Golson and others. A must have for fans of trombone and mid-'50s post-Bop. One of the most exciting jazz trombonists of the 1950s, Jimmy Cleveland had a technique equal to that of Bill Watrous (who would not emerge until a decade later), an enthusiastic style that could hold its own with Frank Rosolino, and was the first important new voice on the trombone to emerge after J.J. Johnson.

Contemporary Classical, Jazz | Innova | 2010 | 56:52 | FLAC, cue, no log | Booklet | 297 MB
Bulgarian National Radio Symphony Orchestra, Grigor Palikarov, conductor, Emanuele Arciuli, piano

As a former jazz pianist turned classical composer, Millikan unites these two worlds in the title cut, Ballad Nocturne, featuring renowned Italian pianist Emanuele Arciuli: a marriage of jazz ballad and classical nocturne. One hears shades of Chopin and Debussy as well as Miles’ Kind of Blue. ... Sparkling clustered string harmonics and bowed crotales hover over a lonely left-hand melody in the piano’s bass like twinkling stars. Weaving and mutating, constantly shifting and changing, Ballad Nocturne grows from a nucleus into profoundly expressive and intimate music.

Keyboardist David Garfield was nineteen when he got his start playing alongside influential bebop jazz trumpeter Freddie Hubbard. Many opportunities came quickly for him in contemporary jazz as well as in R&B and pop, but straight-ahead jazz has remained in his core. This 15-track jazz set that revisits Duke Ellington, Horace Silver, Joe Sample, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Oliver Nelson and Joe Zawinul classics, applies an imaginative jazz varnish to a pair of Sting songs, and presents four of his own compositions.

This 1999 live set features the great drummer Elvin Jones leading an all-star group. The repertoire, comprised of three jazz standards (including John Coltrane's lesser-known "Wise One"), three originals and an adaptation of a folk song, generally featuring one or two soloists on each cut. The straight-ahead and basic "E.J.'s Blues" has spots for trumpeter Darren Barrett (who sounds a bit like Freddie Hubbard) and Jones, while "Straight No Chaser" puts the spotlight on trombonist Robin Eubanks (in a J.J. Johnson mood), pianist Carlos McKinney and the drummer.

The Brecker Brothers, Michael and Randy, were one of the most successful of the jazz/fusion groups that arose in the 1970s, recording six bestselling albums for Arista between 1975 and 1981. For their acclaimed debut, the siblings recruited all-star players including David Sanborn, Chris Parker, Harvey Mason, Sr., Bob Mann, Ralph MacDonald, Don Grolnick and Will Lee. Integrating their taste for jazz, fusion, R&B, funk and pop, the recording features their hit single, “Sneakin' Up Behind You” and the emblematic “Skunk Funk”. Widely received, the album reached the top five on Billboard’s Top Jazz albums.

The epitome of cool, the Brecker Brothers were one of best-selling jazz fusion outfits of the mid-'70s to the early '80s. Randy Brecker (trumpet/flügelhorn) and Michael Brecker (tenor sax) were ubiquitous session players and also members of the New York band Dreams. By the mid-'70s, they started recording under their own name. Their subsequent albums, The Brecker Brothers, Don't Stop the Music, and the live Heavy Metal Be-Bop all find the group doing challenging melodies in a genre that often played it too stupid.

First date for brothers from 1975. Side one is solid jazz/funk/fusion. They called it 'skunk-funk.' Tightly woven jazz funk – the first super effort from the team of Randy & Michael Brecker, whose twin-horn frontline forged a very popular sound in the mid 70s! The record may not be the most groundbreaking bit of jazz funk you'll ever own – but there's some really well-crafted numbers on the set with a strong smooth approach that still sits well after all these years, a lot more so than some of the group's later work. Titles include 'Sneakin Up Behind You', 'Rocks', 'Levitate', 'Some Skunk Funk', 'Sponge', 'A Creature Of Many Faces', and 'DBB'.
