    Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) stars as Napoleon Solo opposite Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as Illya Kuryakin in director Guy Ritchie's The Man From U.N.C.L.E., a fresh take on the hugely popular 1960s television series.

    Ben Webster Meets Oscar Peterson

    1959's Ben Webster Meets Oscar Peterson brings together two of the greatest stylists in American musical history. Here, in a program of timeless songs, pianist Oscar Peterson proves to be the perfect foil, his effortless swing an excellent set-up for the unhurried scoops, slurs and bent notes of tenor saxophone balladeer Ben Webster. Supporting musicians include Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums. On par with Webster's classic Soulville.

    Cinema, Circus & Spaghetti

    17 years strong, Sexmob are a venerable New York City music institution. The band's four founding members-Steven Bernstein, Briggan Krauss, Tony Scherr and Kenny Wollesen-defy genre, instead replacing it with their own inimitable musical language. It's fitting then that for their first new album in over seven years, Sexmob would choose to re-imagine the music of Nino Rota. It was Rota's imaginative compositions that set the tone for the surrealist films of the legendary director Federico Fellini. The Italian filmmaker once said, My films, like my life, are summed up in circus, spaghetti, sex, and cinema. Thus accordingly Sexmob have dubbed their tribute, Cinema, Circus & Spaghetti. The 13-track collection is a welcome return to form by these giants of the NYC downtown scene as they dive headlong into Rota's iconic Fellini film melodies. The quartet fearlessly blows apart musical parameters whether steering the arrangements through gutbucket swing or igniting them with New Orleans brass band second-line fervor; dubbing them out into ether or blasting them with punk jazz abandon. These classic themes are the perfect foil for Sexmob's improvisational psychedelia, old world beauty and hypnotic groove.

    Organ Grinder Swing

    To many, Al Young writes, the organ truly did belong in church, in classical music, in movie palaces, or at the roller rink anyplace but in jazz. In the end, it was fans and listeners who turned the tide people for whom jazz was still a functioning social music. Jimmy Smith was the Hammond organ soloist most determined to break with the instruments past, incorporate modern idioms, and yet find his way to a new popular acceptance of the instrument, his ideas, and jazz itself.


    Kenny Burrell and Grady Tate are the perfect accompanists for Smiths organ-grinding, and the three musicians produced a true hit here with the title track.

    Holiday For Swing

    Academy Award-nominated and Grammy-nominated writer, singer, actor, producer and director, Seth MacFarlane has recently completed his first-ever
    Christmas album. Following his critically acclaimed 2011 debut, Music Is Better Than Words, and a 2013 Oscar Nomination for co-writing Everybody
    Needs a Best Friend from Ted, the record will be available just in time for the holiday season via Republic
    Records.


    Once again, MacFarlane teamed up with composer, arranger, and producer Joel McNeely. The album features a 52-piece orchestra recorded at the
    iconic Abbey Road Studios and a bevy of London's premier players. Among the musicians in the orchestra were jazz legend Peter Erskine on the drums
    and former Frank Sinatra bassist Chuck Berghoffer.


    For the album, MacFarlane and McNeely cherry-picked both timeless holiday songs and lesser-known gems. MacFarlane slides from a warm,
    introspective introduction with a vocal quintet into a bright, up-tempo swing in Let It Snow, and brings a new interpretation to the Lee Gordon rarity
    Christmas Dreaming. Continuing a longtime friendship and creative partnership, Norah Jones joins him for Seger Ellis and Al Stillman's Little Jack Frost
    Get Lost, while Sara Bareilles lends her powerful pipes to Frank Loesser's Baby It's Cold Outside.

    Lyle Lovett & His Large Band (Awaiting Repress)

    Lyle Lovett and His Large Band remains the big man's most ambitious album in many ways. A smart split is effected, and not only between styles--the horn-driven swing of the first half backs the record's wittiest, slyest songs, while the country-folk numbers are among Lovett's most pensive. He's not so mournful that he can't raise an eyebrow at heartache, though: try I Married Her Just Because She Looks Like You. --Rickey Wright

    Conversations (Awaiting Repress)

    Stanton Moore calls his latest album Conversations both a return to my roots and a reinvention. The New Orleans drummer, who is by all counts regarded as one of the great funk musicians of all time, has delivered his first jazz trio recording. It's a return to Moore's roots because he finally gets the opportunity to record with pianist David Torkanowsky and bassist James Singleton whom he came up playing alongside on the New Orleans' club circuit. It's a reinvention because after years of delivering huge grooves and unrelenting funk at some of the worlds more revered rock clubs and festivals, Moore is stepping back to focus on the subtlety of swing and improvisation, while presenting the music via intimate settings like that of his trio's home-base Snug Harbor.


    As for the album's title, one listen and it's clear. There's a vigorous musical dialogue happening among the three musicians, as they tell stories, explore ideas and trade thoughts on tracks like Lauren Z, Big Greaze and the Herbie Hancock classic Driftin'. The big easy is always close at hand with the majority of the material coming from the New Orleans composers, including James Black (Magnolia Triangle and In The Keyhole), Steve Masakowski (The Chase) and Paul Barbarin (Paul Barbarin's Second Line).


    With Conversations, Stanton Moore shines a light on a side of his musical personality that will be new to fans, but every bit as compelling as the substantial body of work he's already established over the course of his 20-year career.

    Capuchin Swing

    Analogue Productions' Blue Note and Nat King Cole Reissues WIN A Positive Feedback 2010 Brutus Award!


    One of McLean's more underrated albums from a plethora of Blue Note releases, 1960's Capuchin Swing finds the bebop alto saxophonist in fine form on a mix of covers and originals. While McLean's future fascination with Ornette Coleman's free-form innovations can be sensed in some solos here, the majority of the album is in a classic hard bop vein. Like contemporaries Hank Mobley, Sonny Clark, and Lee Morgan, though, McLean doesn't just churn out pat jam-session fare, but comes up with consistently provocative charts and solos. Eschewing any ballad cuts, McLean focuses on mid- to fast-tempo swingers and blues. Standouts include originals like Francisco and Condition Blue and choice renditions of Just for Now and Don't Blame Me. McLean enlists a sparkling lineup of hard bop stars, including trumpeter Blue Mitchell, pianist Walter Bishop, Jr., bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Art Taylor. Mitchell particularly impresses, matching many of McLean's own inspired flights with his supple and progressive playing. Along with other fine Blue Note titles like Jackie's Bag and Bluesnik, Capuchin Swing makes for a great introduction to McLean's extensive catalog.-- Stephen Cook

    Fuchsia Swing Song

    During the Blue Note 75th anniversary celebration the label released 100 essential Blue Note LPs and asked New York Times readers what titles they'd like to see make the list. This album is one of five new reissues that were hand-selected by Blue Note President, Don Was, based on New York Times reader recommendations.


    Recorded in 1964 immediately after leaving the Miles Davis Quintet, Sam Rivers' Fuchsia Swing Song is one of the more auspicious debuts the label released in the mid-'60s. Rivers was a seasoned session player (his excellent work on Larry Young's Into Somethin' is a case in point) and a former member of Herb Pomeroy's Big Band before he went out with Davis. By the time of his debut, Rivers had been deep under the influence of Coltrane and Coleman, but wasn't willing to give up the blues just yet. Hence the sound on Fuchsia Swing Song is one of an artist who is at once very self-assured, and in transition.


    Using a rhythm section that included Tony Williams (whose Life Time he had guested on), pianist Jaki Byard, and bassist Ron Carter, Rivers took the hard bop and blues of his roots and poured them through the avant-garde colander. Today, players like Joshua Redman, Branford Marsalis, and James Carter do it all the time, but in 1964 it was unheard of. You either played hard bop or free; Davis' entire modal thing hadn't even completely blasted off yet. The title and opening track is a case in point.


    Rivers opens with an angular figure that is quickly translated by the band into sweeping, bopping blues. Rivers legato is lightning quick and his phrasing touches upon Coleman Hawkins, Sonny Rollins, Coleman, and Coltrane, but his embouchure is all his. He strikes the balance and then takes off on both sides of the aisle. Byard's comping is actually far more than that, building in rhythmic figures in striated minors just behind the tenor. Downstairs Blues Upstairs sounds, initially anyway, like it might have come out of the Davis book so deep is its blue root. But courtesy of Byard and Williams, Rivers goes to the left after only four choruses, moving onto the ledge a bit at a time, running knotty arpeggios through the center of the melody and increasingly bending his notes into succeeding intervals while shifting keys and times signatures


    He never goes completely over the edge as he would on his later Blue Note dates. The most difficult cut on the date is Luminous Monolith, with its swing-like figure introducing the melody. Eight bars in, the syncopation of the rhythm sections begins a stutter stem around the time and then the harmony with Byard building dense chords for Rivers to jump off of. On the Connoisseur Series CD (shame on Blue Note once again for making some of its best outside records limited editions; titles like this should be as readily available as Horace Silver's Song for My Father, but the label had been playing it ever so safe for a while and making fans buy the limited number of titles over and again) there are alternate takes of Luminous Monolith and three more of Downstairs Blues Upstairs, making it a very worthwhile look at the entire session.


    This is a highly recommended date. Rivers never played quite like this again.

    Swing Swang Swingin'

    One of Jackie McLean's earliest Blue Notes, Swing, Swang, Swingin' parts company with the vast majority of his output for the label by concentrating chiefly on standards (only one of the seven tunes is a McLean original). Perhaps as a result of Blue Note's more prepared, professional approach to recording sessions, McLean sounds invigorated here, catapulting each melody forward before launching into a series of impassioned improvisations.

    Rights Of Swing (Pure Pleasure)

    This Candid recording is such a major success that it is surprising that altoist Phil Woods has rarely recorded in this context. The all-star octet not only features the altoist/leader but trumpeter Benny Bailey, trombonist Curtis Fuller, baritone saxophonist Sahib Shihab, the innovative French horn player Julius Watkins (a major factor in this music), pianist Tommy Flanagan, bassist Buddy Catlett, and drummer Osie Johnson. This set consists entirely of Woods' five-part Rights of Swing suite, which clocks in around 38 minutes. The colourful arrangements use the distinctive horns in inventive fashion and the music (which leaves room for many concise solos) holds one's interest throughout. One of Phil Woods' finest recordings, it's a true gem.




    Musicians:



    • Phil Woods (alto saxophone)

    • Sahib Shihab (baritone saxophone)

    • Benny Bailey (trumpet)

    • Curtis Fuller, Willie Dennis (trombone)

    • Julius Watkins (french horn)

    About Pure Pleasure



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    ...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

    Love Swings (On Sale)

    Numbered Limited Edition



    1961 Album of Standards Established Darin As A Sophisticated Singer



    Concept Effort Divided Into Halves That Explore the Emotional Gamut of Romance: One Side Upbeat, the Other Heartbreaking



    Mastered on Mobile Fidelitys World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI (Best Record Plant in America): Darins Voice, Torrie Zitos Orchestral Arrangements Set Up Shop In Your Listening Room



    Bobby Darin didnt want to be simply known as the singer that scored the novelty hit Splish Splash. Determined to be recognized as a top-tier vocalist on par with the likes of Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett, the Bronx native set out to put an authoritative stamp on pop standards. And did just that with Love Swings. Divided into two conceptual halves, the 1961 masterpiece is the singers defining statement, a splendidly effective and smartly performed record that addresses the wild emotional fluctuations associated with romance and finds Darin nailing every note.



    Mastered on Mobile Fidelitys world-renowned mastering system and pressed at RTI (the best record plant in North America), Silver Label numbered limited edition LP presents Darins buoyant album with all the brassiness, boldness, and lushness any fan of vocal pop music would ever want. His voice is transparent and immediate, the diversified instrumental arrangements are placed in sharp relief, the songs replete with airiness, warmth, and the sough-after breath of life. The sound is so good that this somewhat-forgotten LP should now finally gain the recognition its long deserved.



    Yes, love swings, but like a pendulum: back and forth, state the records liner notes, explaining the concept behind a set that is split into two thematically connected halves. On the first side, Darin delves into the giddy feelings and incredible happiness associated with romances first bloom. Infatuation, devotion, and gaiety take hold, Darin conveying every ounce of joy and pleasure tied to gliding, uptempo staples such as Rodgers and Harts I Didnt Know What Time It Was and the lounge-bound sway of Long Ago (And Far Away). Darins voice, and his ebullient support band (conducted by Torrie Zito), epitomize glee, delight, and bliss.



    On the flip side, Darin, ever the realist and proving himself capable of sophisticated material, probes loves disillusions and heartache with incredible panache. The pace slows, the mood darkens, and the lights dim. Zitos orchestrations embrace denser, more poignant tones, and Darin delivers sad, aching tunes like In Love In Vain and Something to Remember You By with stunning realism and haunting impact. Its as cohesive of a vocal performance as youll hear from the era, a journey that takes you from the highs to the lows, and everything in between.



    Yes, the human voice is the most difficult element to accurately reproduce on record. Yet Mobile Fidelitys Silver Label LP does wonders with this Darin classic, opening up the highs, clearing out a previously foggy midrange, and, as importantly, restoring to print in analog a vocal tour de force. Unavailable on vinyl for eons, Love Swings demands to be heard on this sumptuously remastered LP, which runs circles around its digital brethren.
