    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.

    Interludes

    180 Gram 45rpm Double Vinyl


    Pressed at Quality Record Pressings


    Mastered by Bernie Grundman


    The unique sultry jazz vocalist from the Los Angeles area turns up the wattage on Interludes, starting with the opening selection How Long Has This Been Going On a capella. Just One Of Those Things employs a creative Bill Cunliffe arrangement - Stanley is heard during one chorus having brief duets with bassist Chuck Berghofer, guitarist John Chiodini and pianist/arranger Bill Cunliffe before the full group joins in. Other tuneful highlights include Black Velvet, More Than You Know, and Boulevard of Broken Dreams.


    The lowdown and rockish Whole Lotta Love and the always eerie Last Tango In Paris find Stanley putting timeless feeling into more contemporary songs. Great guest artists such as Hendrick Meurkens on harmonica appear on Don't Explain, and Stanley begets a fine swing on Nice 'n' Easy and a sweet and lush interpretation on Duke Ellington's In A Sentimental Mood. Her interlude concludes with a heartfelt duet with guitarist Chiodini on I'm A Fool To Want You, that's full of longing and desire.


    A former USA amateur ballroom dance Pro/Am champion, Lyn Stanley's unique voice has been described as beautiful, Rich in low tones, with phrasing and storytelling that makes her music very personal. Her dancing background adds a feel few artists can deliver. LA Jazz radio personality, Bubba Jackson, describes her as the real deal - she has brought the songstress back to jazz! She was discovered by world-class jazz legend, pianist Paul Smith best known as Ella Fitzgerald's accompanist/conductor. Stanley has become known for her lush low notes, beautiful intonation, rich interpretations, and phrasing.


    Her flawless intonation and sumptuous warmth combine with a full bodied resonance throughout her extensive range. Her lyrics - precisely enunciated, perfectly phrased and vividly rhythmic - tell her stories not only through the words, but in the emotional content with which she sings them, and with a grace and sensuality that coats every syllable she sings with a fluidity that is simply mesmerizing.

    Side By Side

    Mastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound


    ...these are all truly classic Verve titles that you simply don't want to miss...most importantly, the sound of these reissues is nothing short of astounding. Particularly the early Billie and Ella mono records are incredible treasures of sonic beauty. I'd definitely ask Santa for the whole set, or, if you want to cherry pick, the most classic titles. Whatever you decide, you owe yourself at least a half dozen! Winner of a 2012 Positive Feedback Online Writers' Choice Award - Danny Kaey, Positive Feedback Online, November/December 2011


    When Norman Granz signed Johnny Hodges to a recording contract in 1951, it was a prelude to Hodges' leaving the Duke Ellington orchestra to lead his own small band. Four years later Hodges was back in the Ellington fold, but he continued to record for Granz under his own name. Side By Side, recorded in 1958 and 1959, is a throwback to the small-group sessions Ellington recorded with Hodges and other members of his orchestra in the Thirties, but with a couple of important differences: the absence of Ellington himself on several cuts (with Billy Strayhorn taking over on piano), and the presence of such notable non-Ellingtonians as drummer Jo Jones and trumpeters Roy Eldridge and Harry Sweets Edison.

    One of the giants of the alto saxophone, Johnny Hodges was perhaps the most important soloist and sideman in Duke Ellington's orchestra from 1928 up to Hodges' death in 1970. The self-taught player made many solo forays during his long career - one of his '50s outfits included a young John Coltrane - but history remembers Hodges for his virtuosic sidemanship, particularly his sensitive rendering of ballads.

    Johnny Hodges With Billy Strayhorn

    Recorded during the last decade of his long tenure with the Duke Ellington Orchestra, this album finds the great alto saxophonist Johnny Hodges' musical gifts not only intact but stronger than ever. Featuring the Ellington band - with Jimmy Jones on piano and Billy Strayhorn as bandleader and arranger - it is a fascinating program of Ellington remakes, including tome of the orchestra's most familiar numbers, all of which have been given subtle new orchestrations by Strayhorn and melodious new interpretations by Hodges.


    Recorded in 1961.
