VA - Nu-Jazz Divas Vol.2 (2008)
Soul-Jazz, Smooth Jazz, Contemporary Jazz | 1:35:09 | Mp3, 320 kbps | 217 MB
Label: High Note Records | Year Of Release: 2008

2008 two CD set. You don't have to imagine any image of the mellow and full voices of Jazz divas. Just open your ears and enjoy it with ease. The four-dimensional floatation of electronic particles insinuates and creates the vivid appearances for the improvisation sound in modern times. Nu-Jazz Divas takes perfect interpretation of voices and extraordinary recording quality as main considerations and displays the absorption and remake of traditional Jazz in electronic generation. The two CDs contain the nuances between "Happy Hour" and "After Hour".

Pianist Alessandro Fadini brings together a subtle and spacious team of Josiah Boornazian/as-ss, Jakob Dreyer/b and Lu ke Markham/dr through a subtly swinging session that is filled with lovely pastels. Boornazian’s alto is Konitz-cool and lyrical, opening the album with a arm improvisation of the title track. After that, you get soft flower petals floating as piano and bass daintily dance on “Windo Ledge” and Markham’s brushes sashay on ”Elegy For The Living World.” Together, the rhythm team creates some subtle undercurrents for Boornazian on the tensile “No Thrills II” and funky Juno.” Fadini shows his patience on the quietude of “No Thrills I” and the nimble “Mayall’s Object” Thoughtful, filled with the pastels and grey shadows of song. –George W. Harris

Among jazz fans, you can have a lot of fun arguing whether “European Jazz” is a useful counterpoint to the American tradition, an original supplement thereto or “is worth less than American jazz on the market” as it can be read in a Wikipedia forum. There is no doubt that there have been and are gifted musicians this side of the Atlantic, who have molded and formed jazz for decades. They have developed very unique playing styles by merging European music traditions with American influences. To give these pioneers of European jazz a stage was the idea for the series of articles “European Jazz Legends”, which we launched in the magazine Jazz thing in our 100th issue in September 2013. We can now look back on 11 issues.

Although he often paid his bills with non-jazz pursuits, native New Yorker Chuck Wayne was an expressive and talented, if underexposed, bebop guitarist along the lines of Barney Kessel, Tal Farlow, Jimmy Raney, and Johnny Smith. Wayne was never a huge name in the jazz world, but he did cross paths with major jazzmen like Dizzy Gillespie, Zoot Sims, and Woody Herman and improvisers who were familiar with his swinging yet lyrical playing (a relatively small group) swore by him…

Jazz is a music genre that originated amongst African Americans in New Orleans, United States, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Since the 1920s jazz age, jazz has become recognized as a major form of musical expression. It emerged in the form of independent traditional and popular musical styles, all linked by the common bonds of African American and European American musical parentage with a performance orientation.
