This exceptional live document finds legendary free jazz saxophonist Pharoah Sanders collaborating with cornetist Rob Mazurek and members of the Sao Paulo Underground and Chicago Underground Duo. Mazurek takes a leading role for the most part, joined by Sanders in his regular volcanic, spiritual state of playing and supported dutifully by percussionist Maurício Takara, drummer Chad Taylor, bassist Matt Lux, and multi-instrumentalist Guilherme Granado. The disc tends toward the more experimental and tumultuous side of things, with processed synth sounds clashing with the explosive organic instrumentation in a way that brings to mind Sun Ra's rudimentary synth experimentation on his early-'70s Saturn Records output.

There’s much more to Nat King Cole than you know. Nat was surely a smooth singer and a gentle swinger. But he was also a consummate jazz piano player who recorded secretly as a sideman for Keynote and Mercury – using amusing pseudonyms – even as he rose to fame recording hit after hit for Capitol Records. Riffin’: The Decca, JATP, Keynote and Mercury Recordings, a 3-CD box set on Hip-oSelect.com’s Verve Select imprint, features Nat backing his many friends in the 1940s, as well as his original King Cole Trio singles on Decca – a total of 53 tracks significantly restored and remastered, and housed in a beautiful 7 3/8” square box set with a 30-page book stuffed with rare photos, a brilliant essay by David Ritz, detailed session notes and reproductions of the original releases’ artwork, from 78 RPM labels to 10-inch LP covers and much more.

Mercury Records produced a smattering of big band, dixieland and modern jazz from its inception in 1945 until 1953. Then producer Bob Shad was given a free rein to sign artists and the label began to carve a niche as a major player in the jazz world.

Toni Morrison - Jazz
Italian | Frassinelli | 1993 | ISBN: 8876842438 | 237 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Harlem, 1926. Joe Trace un venditore cinquantenne di cosmetici, uccide Dorcas, la giovane amante di diciotto anni. Al funerale della ragazza, Violet, la moglie di Joe, cerca di sfigurarne il cadavere. Questa è in sintesi la trama del romanzo, ultima, superba prova del Premio Nobel Toni Morrison. Ma il significato e il valore dell’opera si collocano ben oltre il puro intreccio. Essa è soprattutto un ritratto della società nera che una voce narrante - uomo o donna? al lettore la risposta - intesse con un racconto il cui ritmo ricorda il jazz e che spazia tra la New York degli anni Venti, dall’incedere frenetico, e la Virginia del 1880, dall’atmosfera più lenta e lirica. Joe e Violet rappresentano quel flusso migratorio di neri che all’inizio del Novecento lasciò le zone rurali per riversarsi nella Città: ed è in quel mondo segnato dal razzismo e dalla segregazione che si sviluppa una love story a tre, carica di passione e tragedia.

Jazz Loves Disney was recorded between Paris, London and Los Angeles by a dream cast. It is incredibly coherent, as if all participants had agreed to pay a rightful tribute to the most beautiful and symbolic tunes of Walt Disneys magic world, as if nothing was too good for the stars when they revisited the classics and the sweet childhood memories connected to them. This is the ultimate proof of the impact Disney has had on generations of jazz musicians, including the ones taking part in Jazz Loves Disney.
