    Our Man In Paris

    Cut At 33 1/3 RPM By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio From The Original Rudy Van Gelder Blue Note Master Tapes


    Pressed On 180 Gram Virgin Vinyl LP By RTI


    Top Quality Gatefold Packaging With Laminated Covers & High Quality Session Photos


    In 1963, the year when Our Man In Paris was recorded, Dexter Gordon turned 40 and moved to Europe for what would be a dozen-year stay. Gordon had been the first important bebop tenor-saxophonist and a giant of Jazz since 1945. After some time off the scene in the ?50s, he was signed to Blue Note. He returned with full force, playing with power, wit and his trademark huge sound, creating one masterpiece after another. On Our Man In Paris, he is clearly inspired by the playing of the innovative bebop pianist Bud Powell, himself at the peak of his powers, bassist Pierre Michelot and the pioneering bop drummer Kenny Clarke. Gordon plays chorus after chorus of fresh, swinging ideas on such tunes as Scrapple From The Apple, Broadway and A Night In Tunisia,? making these Jazz standards sound as if they were written for him. This blazing bebop date is a constant joy.

    Legrand Jazz (Pre-Order)

    Numbered Limited Edition 100% Analog 180-Gram Vinyl LP!

    Limited To Only 3000 Numbered Copies!

    Features Performances By John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Herbie Mann, Bill Evans & More!

    In 1958, a young, successful French composer-arranger with a major infatuation on American jazz, worked his way to New York and convinced the very best players of the time to record an album of largely jazz standards. Michel Legrand would go on to win numerous prizes and accolades (3 Oscars, 5 Grammies, 2 Palmes D'or, etc.), but little of what followed matched the sheer brilliance of Legrand Jazz.

    Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, Ben Webster, Phil Woods and practically every other session man in town signed up for sessions with Legrand to record his idiosyncratic arrangements of standards (Django, Don't Get Around Much Anymore, Night in Tunisia, etc.). Instead of regurgitating then current bop styles, he reinvented the very nature of orchestral jazz band repertoire to make a unique and forward-looking statement on the genre.

    The sound of Impex's all-analog LP preserves the wide soundstage of late 50's Columbia recordings while creating intimate spaces between players on the stage for maximum definition. This rare, highly-praised recording has never sounded as good as it does now. Go big with Legrand Jazz.

    Legrand Jazz was greeted by an enthusiastic review in the magazine Down Beat. Dom Cerulli awarded it five stars out of a possible five.

    Vocalese

    180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Gatefold Package


    Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio


    Pressed at RTI


    Critically Acclaimed Album...12 Grammy Nominations!


    Vocalese is second only to Michael Jackson's Thriller as the most nominated individual album. The album's title refers to a style of music that sets lyrics to previously recorded jazz instrumental pieces. The vocals then reproduce the sound and feel of the original instrumentation. Jon Hendricks, proficient in this art, composed all of the lyrics for this album.


    Grammy Awards: Best Jazz Vocal Performance - Duo or Group, Best Vocal Arrangements For Voices for Cheryl Bentyne and Bobby McFerrin for their arrangement of Another Night In Tunisia.


    Many of the Manhattan Transfer's recordings up to the point of Vocalese showed off their diversity and covered a wide variety of music, including jazz. This set was quite a bit different, for it is dedicated to the vocalese of the great Jon Hendricks. the Manhattan Transfer (singers Cheryl Bentyne, Tim Hauser, Alan Paul and Janis Siegel) perform a dozen songs using Hendricks' lyrics, including That's Killer Joe, Rambo, Ray's Rockhouse and Sing Joy Spring. Utilizing their regular band of the period (which includes guitarist Wayne Johnson), the Count Basie Orchestra (directed at the time by Thad Jones), the Four Freshmen (on To You), tenorman James Moody, Bobby McFerrin (guesting on Night in Tunisia), McCoy Tyner, Dizzy Gillespie (on Sing Joy Spring), altoist Richie Cole, and Hendricks himself, among many others, the Transfer give these boppish tunes definitive vocal treatments. This is one of their finest jazz recordings and a classic of its kind. - Scott Yanow, allmusic.com

    A Night In Tunisia (Out Of Stock)

    The lengthy title track on this LP easily overshadows the rest of the program for it is one of the most exciting versions ever recorded of Dizzy Gillespie's "A Night in Tunisia." Trumpeter Lee Morgan (then only in his early 20s), tenor saxophonist Wayne Shorter, pianist Bobby Timmons and bassist Jymie Merritt formed one of the strongest of the many versions of Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers and are actually in fine form during the remainder of this amazing set.

    Art Blakey - drums

    Jackie McLean - alto saxophone

    Johnny Griffin - tenor saxophone

    Bill Hardman - trumpet

    A Night In Tunisia (Out Of Stock)

    Art Blakey is one of the inventors of the modern bebop style of drumming. Known as a powerful musician and a vital groover his brand of bluesy, funky hard bop was and continues to be profoundly influential on mainstream jazz. For more than 30 years, his band Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers included many young musicians who went on to become prominent names in jazz.


    Released in the late fifties, A Night In Tunisia is a Jazz milestone and prime example of Blakey's exceptional rhythmic prowess. This album is not all about drumming though; it leaves much space for great melodical interplay by fellow musicians Sam Dockery on piano, John Griffin and Ferris Benda on saxophone, Bill Hardman on trumpet and Jimmy De Brest on double bass. Now available with crystal clear, remastered audio!

    The Cooker (Out Of Stock)

    The trumpeter, then just 19, teams up with baritonist Pepper Adams, pianist Bobby Timmons, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Philly Joe Jones for a particularly strong set that is highlighted by a lengthy and fiery Night in Tunisia, Lover Man and a rapid rendition of Just One of Those Things. Morgan plays remarkably well for his age (already ranking just below Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis), making this an essential acquisition.
