    Beyond Words

    Pressed By Pallas In Germany

    First Ever Release On Vinyl

    Surely no one appreciates the sweet curse of the monster hit better than Bobby McFerrin, writes Christopher Loudon for JazzTimes. Mention McFerrin's name in casual conversation and you're sure to hear him dismissed as a one-hit wonder who was briefly hot in 1988 with his peppy paean to positive thinking, Don't Worry, Be Happy, on Simple Pleasures. Little do most folks realize that he ranks among the most dynamically diverse performers on the planet. As accomplished a composer, conductor and producer as he is a singer, McFerrin is an artist of incomparable flexibility who is equally at home with jazz, soul, classical or blues

    Actually, McFerrin's remarkable gift for expressing complex sounds, themes and emotions without words has been evident as far back as his eponymous debut in 1982. Not until now, though, has that gift been the sole focus of an entire solo album. In less capable hands, Beyond Words would likely be perceived as self-indulgent posturing or experimentation merely for the sake of avant-gardism. With McFerrin at the helm, the album emerges as an expertly navigated celebration of creative independence. It is, for the record, also the first of his albums on which he plays keyboards.

    Ruby Vroom

    Ruby Vroom was Soul Coughing's 1994 debut album. The album's sound is a mixture of sample-based tunes (loops of Raymond Scott's Powerhouse on Bus to Beelzebub, Toots and the Maytals, Howlin' Wolf, The Andrews Sisters, and The Roches on Down to This, and a loop of sampler player Mark De Gli Antoni's orchestral horns on Screenwriter's Blues, among others). It also features guitar-based tunes like Janine, Moon Sammy, and Supra Genius and jazzy, upright-bass-fueled songs that often slyly quoted other material-the theme from Courageous Cat on Is Chicago, Is Not Chicago, Thelonious Monk's Misterioso on Casiotone Nation, and Bobby McFerrin's cover of Joan Armatrading's Opportunity on Uh, Zoom Zip.

    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,

    Mehliana: Taming the Dragon

    Two 140-gram LPs Pressed At Pallas MFG In Diepholz, Germany

    Includes CD Of The Album

    Nonesuch Records releases the debut album from the electric duo of Brad Mehldau and Mark Guiliana, Mehliana: Taming the Dragon. The two have been performing for several years, including a brief US tour this fall and an ongoing European tour, with Mehldau playing Fender Rhodes and synthesizers and Guiliana on drums and effects, as they are on the record. Mehliana comprises 12 original tunes-six written by the duo and six written by Mehldau-and was engineered and mixed by Greg Koller (Jon Brion, Kanye West). The vinyl edition of the album includes two 140-gram LPs pressed at Pallas MFG in Diepholz, Germany, and a CD of the album.

    Brad Mehldau played in a number of different ensembles, including label mate Joshua Redman's quartet, before becoming a bandleader himself in the 1990s. The Brad Mehldau Trio, which tours the world extensively, made eight acclaimed recordings for Warner Bros., including the five widely praised Art of the Trio albums with former drummer Jorge Rossy (released as a boxed set by Nonesuch in 2011). The pianist's nine years with Nonesuch have been equally productive, beginning with the solo disc Live in Tokyo and including six trio records Day Is Done, House on Hill, Live, Ode, and Where Do You Start, as well as a collaboration with soprano RenÉe Fleming, Love Sublime; a chamber ensemble album, Highway Rider; two collaborations with label mate Pat Metheny, Metheny Mehldau and Quartet, the latter of which also includes Trio members Jeff Ballard and Larry Grenadier; a CD/DVD set of live solo performances, Live in Marciac; and collaborations with genre-crossing musicians on Modern Music, with composer/pianist Kevin Hays and composer/arranger Patrick Zimmerli. Additionally, he produced saxophonist Joshua Redman's 2013 release Walking Shadows.

    According to Modern Drummer, Mark Guiliana is "at the forefront of an exciting new style of drumming." The New Jersey native's unique and un-compromised approach to playing the drums has earned him international acclaim as both a leader and a sideman. In 2004, Guiliana created HEERNT, an "experimental-garage-jazz" trio based in New York. The band's debut record, Locked in a Basement, was called the record "the most exuberant, dramatic, beautiful, sassy, genre-busting little outing that I've heard since I don't know when" by legendary drummer Bill Bruford (Yes, King Crimson). As a sideman, Guiliana's longest partnership has been with world-renowned jazz bassist Avishai Cohen. He toured all over the world with Cohen from 2003 until 2008, performing on six studio records and a live DVD recorded at the Blue Note in Manhattan. Guiliana has also recorded and/or performed with Meshell Ndegeocello, Dhafer Youssef, Wayne Krantz, Matisyahu, Jazz Mandolin Project, Jason Lindner, Brad Shepik, Bobby McFerrin, Tigran Hamasyan, and many more. His debut solo record, Beat Music, which was co-produced by Ndegeocello, was released in the spring of 2013. Guiliana plays Gretsch drums, Sabian cymbals, Vic Firth sticks, and Evans drumheads.
