    Concert of the Century - A Tribute to Charlie Parker


    First Time Available On Wide Release Vinyl


    Pristinely Restored 1980 Live Recording


    6 Of The Greatest Jazz Legends In Their Prime


    180 Gram Audiophile 2LP Vinyl With Gatefold


    On a cold November evening in 1980, 3000 jazz fans filled the Salle Wilfrid Pelletier Hall of Place des Arts
    in Montreal, Quebec to attend what promised to be, a swinging evening featuring six of the biggest names
    in bebop. Billed The Concert of the Century - A Tribute to Charlie Parker, and under the direction of
    Dizzy Gillespie - one of the best jazz trumpeters of all time - the event featured legendary performers:
    Hank Jones - piano, Ray Brown - bass, Milt Jackson - vibes, Philly Joe Jones - drums and James Moody
    on tenor sax and flute. Local club owner Roue Doudou Boicel, who produced the concert, had the foresight
    to record the concert in its entirety. A limited quantity bootleg LP of the concert soon appeared and then
    disappeared from the marketplace, those tapes lay dormant for over 30 years.


    This historic recording opens with rapturous applause that sets the tone with Dizzy's own "Blues 'N' Boogie.
    "Also featured are several classic standards - some more well known then others - including "Darben The
    Redd Foxx," "Time On My Hands," "Get Happy," "The Shadow Of Your Smile" and "Stardust." All the players are
    at the top of their game and having a blast, as evidenced by the banter and repartee between songs.


    Concert of the Century, pristinely restored and remastered, features two tracks that weren't on the original
    pressing from the early '80s - Ralph Rainger's "If I Should Lose You" and an incredible eight minute bass
    solo by Ray Brown.

    Outward Bound

    Part of the ultimate audiophile Prestige stereo reissues from Analogue Productions - 25 of the most collectible, rarest, most audiophile-sounding Rudy Van Gelder recordings ever made. All cut at 33 1/3.


    All mastered from the original analog master tapes by mastering maestro Kevin Gray. 200-gram LPs pressed at Acoustic Sounds' state-of-the-art pressing plant, Quality Record Pressings, plated by Gary Salstrom


    Deep groove label pressings, tip-on jackets on thick cardboard stock


    Eric Dolphy has sometimes been described as an iconoclast, but in Outward Bound, he was not overturning his idol, Charlie Parker; he was building on Bird's legacy. So deep was Dolphy's musicianship, so free his imagination, that he enchanted trailblazers like John Coltrane and Charles Mingus. Partnering in this collection with the brilliant trumpeter Freddie Hubbard and a stunning rhythm section, Dolphy is at a peak of energy and creativity on alto saxophone, bass clarinet, and flute. He and Hubbard work with empathy reminiscent of the young Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. Pianist Jaki Byard, bassist George Tucker, and drummer Roy Haynes were ideal accompanists and co-conspirators in this widely influential work.

    Interlude

    Blue Note Records recording artist Jamie Cullum - the best-selling jazz artist in U.K. history - will release his new album INTERLUDE. The album includes 3 exclusive tracks that did not appear on the original U.K. edition. The album marks a shift to straight-ahead jazz and a return to interpretation from an artist who has made a habit of bending genres, writing original material and bringing new sounds and new listeners to the music.
    Working with producer Benedic Lamdin of Nostalgia 77, Cullum selected a number of jewels from the American songbook, including the title track, which was penned by Dizzy Gillespie and Frank Paparelli, and added a couple of modern surprises - Sufjan Steven's "The Seer's Tower" and Randy Newman's
    "Losing You." There are also collaborations with Gregory Porter ("Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood") and Laura Mvula ("Good Morning Heartache").


    Interlude is the follow-up to Cullum's 2013 album Momentum, which he recorded with producers Dan the Automator and Jim Abbiss. Cullum has recently appeared on albums by Labrinth, Birdy and alternative hip hop super-group Deltron 3030. Jamie's catalogue dates back to his self-released, Heard It All Before, in 1999, while he was still studying at the University of Reading. Pointless Nostalgic (2002), released by legendary indie jazz label Candid Records, was certified Gold in the U.K. It was followed by Cullum's breakthrough major label debut, Twentysomething, which climbed into the Top 5 in the U.K., where it was subsequently certified triple Platinum. Cullum recorded two songs for the Meet the Robinsons soundtrack and was nominated for a Golden Globe® for "Best Original Song" for "Gran Torino," which he co-wrote for the 2008 Clint Eastwood film of the same name.

    Bags And Trane

    Mastered from the Original Master Tapes


    The Only Full-Album Collaboration Between Iconic Vibraphonist and Definitive Saxophonist


    Featuring Pianist Hank Jones, Bassist Paul Chambers, and Drummer Connie Kay


    It's a shame more classic hard-boppers weren't unified for multiple collaborations. Vibraphonist Milt Jackson and saxophone virtuoso John Coltrane recorded just once together, and this 1959 date makes one wish they reunited for several return engagements. Lighthearted, upbeat, and joyously fluid, Bags & Trane plays like a private after-hours session of friends hanging back and toying with the music.


    In collaborating with pianist Hank Jones, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Connie Kay, the headliners go for broke, expanding the parameters of two Jackson originals as well as three standards, including Dizzy Gillespie's Be-Bop and the staple The Night We Called It a Day. Upbeat tempos and spirited interplay pulses throughout.


    Mastered from the original master tapes, ORG Music's reissue presents this heralded release in exacting sound, with the instruments given full range and true-to-life imaging that takes you right into New York City's Atlantic Recording Studios when the pieces were recorded in January 1959. What a delight!

    Lullabies Of Birdland

    Ella Fitzgerald is widely heralded for her clean phrasing, scat-singing and a confident sense of swing. Viewed as one of the world's most popular jazz singers, she performed alongside Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie, Frank Sinatra and Duke Ellington. Her outstanding performances on record and live yielded both critical and popular success during her lifetime. Lullabies Of Birdland consists of recordings from 1945 to 1955. It offers a wonderful set of swing-era standards, impossible to listen to without imagining yourself sipping cognac in a smoky jazzclub on Broadway.

    The story behind the bent trumpet


    It is just a few days since the accident that gave the career of the trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie a new boost and made the main figure of this captivating Jazz history appear that bit crazier, that bit more "Dizzier". At the end of the year 1953, according to the legend, Lorraine Gillespie, Dizzy's wife, was celebrating her birthday in Manhattan; there were a lot of musicians, dancers and actors present and, after performing for the birthday girl, Dizzy's trumpet was left lying unattended on the stage while the trumpeter was outside in front of the club giving an interview. The two dancing comedians "Stump & Stumpy" (Jimmy Cross and Eddie Hartman) were capering around the stage and one of them fell on the instrument and damaged it so that the bell was bent upwards at an angle of 45 degrees. Dizzy, the story continues, tried to play the mutilated instrument and noticed just how near to his ear his own sound suddenly was, nearer at least than with a normal trumpet. He had the damaged instrument repaired, but ordered a new trumpet from a manufacturer with exactly the same kink as the accident had caused.


    If all of that is true, the first jazz recording in the archive of today's NDR was played either with the repaired trumpet or with a substitute instrument -Mister Gillespie, who came on the 9th of March 1953 with his quintet for a studio recording to Hamburg's studio 10(which at the time was merged with the Cologne broadcaster under the name of "Nordwestdeutscher Rundfunk" - NWDR), is not only wearing - even though there is no audience - a decorative Tyrolean hat like the popular singing comedian and EX-GI Billy Mo; the ornately decorated trumpet he plays has no kink, it is absolutely straight (as verified in the photos by Susanne Schapowalow). The "old" Dizzy, so to speak, becomes a prominent guest on this remarkable day in Hamburg, and the "new" Dizzy has just ordered his future trade mark from the trumpet manufacturer. "60 Years Jazz in the NDR" could hardly have kicked off more auspiciously.


    In 1953 John Birks Gillespie is 36 years old and a world star in Jazz. Born in 1917 in the small town of Cheraw/South Carolina, the youngest of nine children, he is known in the scene as "Dizzy" because, alongside the inventors of bebop Charlie Parker and Bud Powell, he likes to play the mad intellectual with goatee beard, Basque beret and round sunglasses. He cultivates the role of provocateur, in 1964 he even stands for election as president of the USA. However, the history of bebop has already been written when he comes to Hamburg in the spring of 1953; now the time has come for Dizzy, the spirited oddball, to reinvent himself - until in 1968 with a grandiose big band at the Berlin Jazz Festival and from then on, again and again, he sets important milestones in a great career, including NDR concerts of course. He never switches styles and sounds as drastically as, for example, Miles Davis - Dizzy was always Dizzy - but ever new musical formations led up to the "United Nations Orchestra" with whom he guested in the last years before his death on 6 January 1993 all over the world including on northern German festival stages. As often as possible, the recording vans of NDR were always there.


    In March 1953, Gillespie is accompanied by the baritone saxophonist Bill Graham, a musician who in the years beforehand had been part of the "Dee Gee Days", the "Savoy Sessions" (the album of this title became a classic of modern Jazz). Graham contributed not only magnificent solos in the sessions such as now in Hamburg; he also wrote "Oh-sho-be-do-be" a light-hearted ditty about the whispered conversations of young lovers which became a genuine classic in Gillespie's repertoire. At the piano in the Hamburg studio sits Wade Legge, barely thirty years old at the time, and one of the greatest but highly underestimated and unfortunately almost forgotten talents of the time. Legge's partner of many years, Lou Hackney, plays bass, and Al Jones is on percussion.


    Among other places, this European tour also brought the band to Paris; they recorded five tracks on a stop at the Hamburg studio. Gershwin's "They Can't Take That Away From Me" and "Alone Together" by Arthur Schwartz and Howard Dietz are followed by two of those compositions laced with Latino rhythms that Dizzy had developed with the percussionist Chano Pozo and the arranger Gil Fuller: "Manteca" and "Tin-Tin-Deo". The short but extremely sweet program ends with "I Can't Get Started", a masterpiece for posterity written by Vernon Duke and Ira Gershwin.


    The power of imagination is really not sufficient to conceive of the interaction of Gillespie's quintet with the other band in this studio session - or how on this 9th of March what was probably the most important modern quintet in the German-speaking world performed alongside Dizzy. Hans Koller had formed the band around himself. Koller was born in 1921 in Vienna. After time spent as an American prisoner of war, in 1946 he returned to his home city to found a Jazz club, and the saxophone sound he made his own influenced at least a generation. The trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff was not even 25 years old in March 1953, and it is not so long since he swapped the guitar for the trombone as a professional musician. Jutta Hipp is the pianist. Born in Leipzig in 1935, she was regarded as the greatest piano talent of her time; her career took off vertically, but ended abruptly and tragically shortly after she moved to the USA. She never played piano again and she never returned to Germany. She died in 2003 in New York, almost completely forgotten. Shorty Roeder on bass and the percussionist Karl Sanner are the top rhythmists of their age - and this band of twenty-somethings (Koller is the oldest at 32, and with a certain amount of bravado he christened them the "New Jazz Stars") is showing quite clearly that Jazz in Europe wants to and will take other paths than Dizzy in the motherland of the genre.


    Koller selected some quite standard fare; "The Way You Look Tonight" is followed by "Indian Summer", "You Go to My Head" is followed by "All the Things You Are". Old friends, all very familiar - but the interpretation that the quintet gives these tracks is cooler than anything considered cool or fashionable up to then in the USA. What would have been going through Mr. Gillespie's keen mind when he heard just how uncompromisingly these young Krauts and Koller were advancing the renewal of music which had begun to develop further and beyond the Dizzy standard at home in the USA ?


    Anyone in the NWDR studio in Hamburg on the 9th of March 1953 who could read minds would probably have witnessed an international dialogue, which has ever since repeatedly influenced the Jazz world. "60 years Jazz in the NDR" - and what an event stands at the very beginning!

    Yesterdays

    2001 was a vintage year for the Jarrett trio, as three outstanding live albums - "The Out-of-Towners", "Always Let Me Go" and "My Foolish Heart"- have already shown. "Yesterdays", registered at Tokyo's Metropolitan Festival Hall, is a fourth 2001 concert recording, with an all-standards programme and a strong emphasis on bebop, including Charlie Parker's "Scrapple from the Apple", "Shaw'nuff" by Parker and Dizzy Gillespie, and Horace Silver's "Strollin'". There is also an exhilarating splash of ragtime in the shape of "You Took Advantage Of Me", and beautiful ballads including the title track and "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" (both from Jerome Kern's pen). As a bonus: the album concludes with a radiant "Stella by Starlight" captured at a soundcheck: Jarrett, Peacock and DeJohnette playing just for the joy of it...

    Groovin' With Golson (Pre-Order)

    Part of the ultimate audiophile Prestige stereo reissues from Analogue Productions - 25 of the most collectible, rarest, most audiophile-sounding Rudy Van Gelder recordings ever made. All cut at 33 1/3.


    All mastered from the original analog master tapes by mastering maestro Kevin Gray. 200-gram LPs pressed at Acoustic Sounds' state-of-the-art pressing plant, Quality Record Pressings, plated by Gary Salstrom


    Deep groove label pressings, tip-on jackets on thick cardboard stock


    Benny Golson, who came to the attention of the jazz public with Tadd Dameron's band and Dizzy Gillespie's orchestra, was a member of the Jazztet - the group he had formed with Art Farmer - at the time of this recording. Farmer is not with him in this recording but another Jazztet-mate, trombonist Curtis Fuller, is. Although this session is not as structured as the three-horn efforts of the Jazztet, there is a balance between blowing and Golson's writing that makes for a felicitous blend, whether on Golson's own My Blues House, Gene Krupa's old burner, Drum/Boogie, or Jerome Kern's Yesterdays. And with Art Blakey on drums things cook when they have to, and simmer at the right moments. With Curtis Fuller, Ray Bryant, Paul Chambers and Art Blakey.

    Outward Bound

    Eric Dolphy has sometimes been described as an iconoclast, but in Outward Bound, he was not overturning his idol, Charlie Parker; he was building on Bird's legacy. So deep was Dolphy's musicianship, so free his imagination, that he enchanted trailblazers like John Coltrane and Charles Mingus. Partnering in this collection with the brilliant trumpeter Freddie Hubbard and a stunning rhythm section, Dolphy is at a peak of energy and creativity on alto saxophone, bass clarinet, and flute. He and Hubbard work with empathy reminiscent of the young Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. Pianist Jaki Byard, bassist George Tucker, and drummer Roy Haynes were ideal accompanists and co-conspirators in this widely influential work.

    Jazz Party


    200-Gram LP


    Mastered By Bernie Grundman From The Original Analog Tape


    Housed In A Tip-On Gatefold Jacket (From Stoughton Printing) For The First Time!


    Plated And Pressed At Quality Record Pressings!


    Ellington Soars To Unmatched Artistic Heights Alongside Impressive Jazz Stars Including Dizzy Gillespie, Johnny Hodges And Jimmy Rushing!


    The tremendously detailed audio effect achieved by Columbia's engineers is brought back to life on this 200-gram LP from Analogue Productions. You want Duke and his men at their best, this is it!


    Duke Ellington called his music American Music rather than jazz, and liked to describe those who impressed him as beyond category. He remains one of the most influential figures in jazz, if not in all American music and is widely considered as one of the 20th century's best known African American personalites. He received 13 Grammy Awards and was honored with the French Legion of Honor in 1973. Posthumous recognition of his work include a special award citation from the Pulitzer Prize Board.


    Dizzy's spectacular trumpet blooms here amidst the Ellingtonian aggregate. The sometimes tender, sometimes shouting blues style of Jimmy Rushing provides nice contrast in one of the most varied and satisfying Ellington recordings ever. Originally released on Columbia Records in 1959, Jazz Party In Stereo contains a formidable gallery of jazz stars including Dizzy Gillespie, Jimmy Rushing, Johnny Hodges, Clark Terry, Paul Gonsalves, and more!


    So what have we done to perfect this brilliant reissue? Mastering by Bernie Grundman from the original analog tape, for starters. Naturally we turned to our own Quality Record Pressings for the finest 200-gram, dead-silent background pressing. Top it off with a Stoughton Printing gatefold tip-on jacket with beautiful full-size inner pictures and you've got an audiophile's dream. A can't miss for your collection!


    This most unusual Duke Ellington record includes two selections featuring nine symphonic percussionists on timpani, vibes, marimbas, and xylophones. Dizzy Gillespie makes a historic appearance with Ellington's orchestra on 'U.M.M.G.' (a meeting that should have been repeated often but sadly never was), Jimmy Rushing (Count Basie's former vocalist) sings 'Hello Little Girl,' and both Johnny Hodges ('All of Me') and Paul Gonsalves ('Ready Go!') have chances to blow. - AllMusic

    Cal Tjader's Latin Concert

    As Cal Tjader's reputation and popularity grew as one of the major forces in Afro-Cuban jazz, he was able to hire some of the music's most able artists. On this 1958 album, recorded at San Francisco's famous Black Hawk, his band included percussionists Mongo Santamaria and Willie Bobo, pianist Vince Guaraldi, and bassist Al McKibbon, a veteran of the Dizzy Gillespie band that opened American ears to the charms and urgencies of Afro-Cuban rhythms. Having Al in the band, Tjader once said, is an impossible dream come true. Among the pieces here are several by Tjader and one that was destined to become a classic in the literature of Latin jazz, Ray Bryant's Cubano Chant.

    Things Are Getting Better

    This title provides ample evidence why Cannonball Adderley (alto sax) is considered one of the masters of his craft. Here he joins forces with Modern Jazz Quartet co-founder Milt Jackson (vibes) to create a variety of sonic atmospheres. They are backed by the all-star ensemble of Wynton Kelly (piano), Percy Heath (bass), and the one and only Art Blakey (drums).


    The moody Blues Oriental opens the set with Jackson immediately diving in with his trademark fluid runs and shimmering intonation. Adderley counters with a light and lively line that weaves between the rhythm section. The optimistic Things Are Getting Better is a good-natured romp as the co-leads trade and cajole each other into some downright rollicking exchanges. This directly contrasts with the sultry Serves Me Right, which allows the combo members to demonstrate their collective musical malleability. The interaction between Adderley and Jackson sparkles as they entwine their respective playing with an uncanny singularity of spirit. The cover of Dizzy Gillespie's Groovin' High contains another spirited performance with some thoroughly engaging improvisation, especially during Adderley's voracious solos. Sidewalks of New York bops freely as Jackson unleashes some sublime licks against a hearty and equally boisterous sax. Adderley's Sounds for Sid demonstrates his uncanny ability to swing with a strong R&B vibe. With drop-dead timing and profound instrumental chops, this cut is undoubtedly one of the best from Adderley's earliest canon. The album concludes with a jumping reading of Cole Porter's Just One of Those Things.

    Modern Jazz au Club Saint Germain

    After hitting Paris in 1950, saxophonist Bobby Jaspar enthralled jazz fans and jazzmen alike with his smooth, elegant playing, with the lyricism of his tranquil phrases heavily influenced by Stan Getz in particular. So when Jaspar began regularly performing with a small ensemble at the Club St-Germain five years later, he adopted the same instrumentation as that of his idol's illustrious quintet, with Sacha Distel on guitar and RenÉ Urtreger on piano in the roles of Jimmy Raney and Al Haig, respectively.
    Contrary to what its title might suggest, Modern Jazz au Club St-Germain was actually recorded in the studio. It features compositions by Milt Jackson, Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis along with a handful of standards, in which the angular aridity of bebop gives way to the generous and yet sensitive idiom of cool jazz.



    Jaspar's premature death in 1963 robbed the jazz world of a promising talent; this record is among his best efforts as a leader. Bobby Jaspar is in top form here!!!



    Recording: December 1955 at the PathÉ Magellan studio, Paris



    Musicians:



    • Bobby Jaspar (tenor saxophone, flute)

    • Sacha Distel (guitar)

    Memorial Album


    Part Of The Blue Note 75th Anniversary Vinyl Reissue Campaign


    Clifford Brown emerged fully formed in 1953, a trumpeter gifted with an ebullient swing and technical skills that added polish and precision to fresh invention. Foregoing both the manic pyrotechnics of Dizzy Gillespie and the laconic introversion of Miles Davis, he also provided a stylistic model for jazz trumpeters that has never gone out of style. This album combines Brown's first two recording dates as leader, placing him in quintet and sextet settings with some of the core musicians of the New York bop scene. The first nine tracks have Brown in an inspired quintet, prodded by the twisting, off-kilter solos and comping of the brilliant and underrated pianist Elmo Hope and the sparkling complexity of drummer Philly Joe Jones. While altoist Lou Donaldson is deeply in the sway of Charlie Parker, Brown sets his own course, whether it's the boppish Cookin' or the standard You Go to My Head. The final nine tracks have Art Blakey's drums driving the sextet, while altoist Gigi Gryce's understated concentration acts as an effective foil to Brown's joyous, dancing lines. Taken at a medium up-tempo, Cherokee is one of Brown's most effective vehicles. The alternate takes from each session highlight Brown's spontaneous creativity, while Rudy Van Gelder's remastering adds fresh focus to both his gorgeous tone and the explosive drumming. --Stuart Broomer

    Remastered And Reissued As Part Of The Blue Note 75th Anniversary Vinyl Reissue Campaign


    In a word association game, the name "Hank Mobley" will often generate "Blue Note" and vice versa. While Mobley had a musical life beyond the Blue Note label including associations with Dizzy Gillespie, Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers and Miles Davis (the 1961 Quintet), it is for his Blue Note recordings that he rightfully most remembered. Mobley led 25 albums for Blue Note and appeared on over 30 others as a sideman. His consistency resulted in all of those recordings being recommended to hard bop collectors.


    Mobley's mastery of the style, his attractive tone, and his skill at writing songs that inspire memorable solos made him a perfect representative of the Blue Note sound. Even with his large number of great recordings, Workout is something special and a real standout. Joined by Grant Green, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones, Mobley creates brilliant statements on four of his best originals (including the soulful "Uh Huh" and "Greasin' Easy"), "The Best Things In Life Are Free" and "Three Coins In A Fountain." The passion in Mobley's playing is exciting and will surprise many. He takes wild chances that challenge the other all-stars, and he plays with a constant stream of creative ideas. Even collectors who own a dozen other Hank Mobley albums will have to get this version of Workout which, with its superb remastering, has never sounded better.

    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
