Sophie Milman - Make Someone Happy (2007)

Sophie Milman’s debut release reveals a gifted young jazz vocalist who swings with a surprising degree of maturity. Though born in Russia, she has called Canada home for some time and is joined by some of the country’s best jazz musicians. Milman isn’t afraid to take a few chances and seems to be quite comfortable with her own voice rather than copying others, as young performers have a tendency to do.

Joshua Redman Quartet - Blues for Pat (1994)

This European CD, probably a bootleg, shows
just how exciting the band was live. On 70 minutes of music recorded in a San Francisco club, Redman often indulges in close interplay and exciting tradeoffs with Metheny; the two clearly inspired each other. The recording quality is decent, and the performances overall actually exceed Wish in passion and creativity. Highlights include “Blues for Pat,” an 181/2-minute version of “St. Thomas” and “Carla’s Groove.” All Joshua
Redman and Pat Metheny fans will want this one. - by Scott Yanow, AMG

Nina Simone - Jazz Plays Nina Simone (2008)

The company that owns the digital radio station “theJazz” has announced that the station is closing down at the end of March, barely more than a year since it opened. So it is hardly a propitious time to release an album with this title. Perhaps the CD should have been called theJazz Doesn’t Play Nina Simone.
Nevertheless, this is a good representative selection from the work of a singing pianist who always seemed to be outside the jazz mainstream. She is not even mentioned in some jazz reference books, perhaps for the snobbish reason that some of her singles got into the pop charts and have even been used in TV commercials (but so have those of Louis Armstrong - the subject of theJazz’s previous release). Certainly Simone was the kind of artist who appeals to people who don’t normally regard themselves as jazz fans. This album includes such popular hits as I Put a Spell on You and My Baby Just Cares For me but unaccountably omits To Love Somebody, which got into the UK Top Five in 1969.

However popular she was, and despite her classical training, she was undoubtedly a jazz performer - and a unique one. Her voice was deep and she often used a very wide vibrato, putting songs across with a passion which also found voice in her political activism. But this passion gave a forcefulness to many of her performances: whether an optimistic song like Feeling Good or the sombre Strange Fruit (here performed very histrionically). Her piano style was often thumping - even ponderous - a quality she shared with Dave Brubeck (another classically-influenced pianist). And she took material from whatever sources she pleased - popular songs, show tunes, folk and gospel songs, as well as jazz standards and her own originals. Who else would take the Ellington tune Mood Indigo as she does on this CD - as a fast swing number? She was not always the subtlest of performers, although a track like Black is the Colour of My True Love’s Hair shows that she could be tender and restrained.

Nina left the USA in 1974 and eventually settled in the south of France, where she died in 2003. However you categorize her, she certainly left her mark on music. ~Review by Tony Augarde~

Rosenberg Trio & Tim Kliphuis - Tribute To Stephane Grappelli (2008)

Dans la série des hommages rendus au violoniste Stéphane Grappelli à l’occasion du centième anniversaire de sa naissance, voilà celui, attendu, du Trio Rosenberg.
Le fameux trio hollandais ne pouvait pas manquer ce rendez-vous. Rappelons qu’en 1993, Stochelo et ses cousins eurent l’extrême honneur d’accompagner au Carnegie Hall le regretté violoniste alors dans sa 85ème année, qui déclara à l’époque : “De tous les guitaristes et groupes manouches avec lesquels j’ai pu jouer durant ma vie, ce sont les Rosenberg les meilleurs.”. Reconnaissance à caractère forcément inestimable de la part d’un des deux inventeurs du jazz manouche. On pourra d’ailleurs se faire une idée de la complicité des deux leader en réécoutant l’album Caravan dans lequel Stochelo rend l’invitation à Grappelli sur cinq merveilleux morceaux bien dans l’esprit du Hot Club…
Pour ce qui est de ce Tribute to Stéphane Grappelli, soyons honnête, il n’y a pas grand chose de nouveau : c’est magnifiquement joué. Stochelo, égal à lui même, y joue divinement, son distingué vibrato fait résonner sa Selmer de manière exceptionnelle, et ses envolées de virtuosité restent désarmantes. La rythmique est parfaite, on a déjà tout écrit la dessus. Dans le rôle du violoniste (rôle particulièment difficile à tenir sur un disque avec un hommage aussi affiché); Tim Kiplhuis, déjà entendu régulièrement chez Fapy Lafertin, s’en sort à merveille : il sonne plus “grappelli” que nul autre et réussit même la gageure de retrouver beaucoup de son inimitable légèreté…
Comme on l’a dit, c’est donc magnifiquement joué… mais sans réelle surprise. On ne retrouve hélas pas le charme et le feu de l’album précédent, Roots avec le clarinettiste Bernard Berkhout. Mais qu’à cela ne tienne… Ce Tribute to Grappelli restera malgré tout un excellent album de jazz manouche avec de chouettes chorus. C’est qu’à force d’être habitué au caviar, je chipote…

Putumayo Presents - Euro Groove (2008)

In Europe, electronica is every bit as diverse as it is in the United States. Plenty of harsh, abrasive, in-your-face techno recordings have come out of Germany, but on the other hand, European electronica also has its chillout/downtempo side — and that softer, more melodic side of European electronica is the focus of Putumayo’’s Euro Groove compilation. You won’’t find any dissonant, amelodic techno (that is, the rave equivalent of death metal or free jazz) on this 2008 release, but you will find sleek, accessible, and melody-minded club grooves (some of them with an alternative rap influence) that come from France (Martial’’s “Cette Fille,” Mouss et Hakim’’s “Mina"); Italy (Mystic Diversions’’ “E Pa-Pa,” Fiamma Fumana’’s “Check In"); and Spain (the Guateque All Stars’’ “Superwhirly") as well as Germany (2raumwohnung’’s “Madchen mit Plan"). Euro Groove also contains Chumbawamba’’s English-language track “Jacob’’s Ladder,” but recordings that are in English are the exception rather than the rule on this 49-minute CD. For Americans who haven’’t heard chillout and downtempo electronica performed in any language other than English, it might come as a surprise to hear vocals in French, Italian, Spanish, and German on Euro Groove. But in fact, all of those languages sound perfectly natural in a chillout/downtempo environment — especially if one has spent time in European countries where learning to speak three or four languages fluently is not uncommon. By being multilingual, Euro Groove paints a broad picture of Europe’’s chillout/downtempo experience of the 2000s — and Putumayo, true to form, showed both good taste and a sense of adventure when assembling this enjoyable compilation. ~Review by Alex Henderson~

All of the songs are familiar standards along the lines of “Bye Bye Blackbird,” “I’m Just a Lucky So and So,” “September Song,” “Mood Indigo” and “It Might As Well Be Spring,” and seven of the tracks are previously unreleased. Throughout the album, the trio is relaxed and laidback, resulting in a warm, inviting collection of standards. It’s among Smith’s mellowest recordings, and it’s all the better for it. - by Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG -

Wes Montgomery - Live in Belgium 1965

Wes Montgomery was a late starter, not even beginning on guitar until 1942 when, at the age of nineteen, he first heard Charlie Christian on records. Six months later he was playing professionally, and by the end of the ‘40s--presumably because, as a self-taught musician, he didn’t know such things were “impossible"--he had begun his astounding use of octaves and chords in his solos.

Actually, Wes himself must take a fair share of the blame for the delay in his being “discovered.” Until late in 1959, he had done virtually all of his playing (except for two years--1948-50--with Lionel Hampton) in and around his native Indianapolis, which is scarcely the hub of the jazz world. Riverside learned of him in September of 1959, through the excited reaction of Cannonball Adderley, who had listened to Wes far into the night when a one-nighter brought Adderley to that city.

Once we heard him, there was no question as to what to do. His first LP (The Wes Montgomery Trio) was recorded just a few weeks later. Shortly thereafter he began branching out a bit. He worked in California (where previously he had been known primarily only as a brother of Buddy and Monk Montgomery, the nucleus of the noted “Mastersounds"); and when he came to New York to record this album, there was one memorable night when he was persuaded to sit in with Horace Silver’s group at the Village Gate and the audience almost literally tore the roof off the place. No doubt about it, while Wes Montgomery’s success story may have been slow in starting, it is now happening and happening fast.

Although the technically unbelievable feats Wes accomplishes on guitar may be the first things to catch one’s attention, his true and substantial jazz merit lies basically in the fire and deep soul with which he performs them.

Yusef Lateef - Live at Pep’s Volume Two

Thankfully, Impulse had the good sense to complete the entire Live at Pep’’s evening by releasing Volume 2 in 1999. Impulse has been notoriously slow to release Yusef Lateef’’s material that he recorded for them in the 1960s onto CD (shamefully, only the two Live at Pep’’s albums were domestically available in 1999). Volume Two carries on this document of a live Yusef hard bop date in much the same fashion as Volume One. Both are particularly incredible in their recording quality and the performances of each layer. The selections and the energy that is put into each and every song is especially moving, but shines specifically bright on “P-Bouk” and “Yusef’’s Mood,” — both showcase Yusef’’s highly personal and breathy approach to the flute. If you’’ve got Volume One, Volume Two is an absolute, unquestionable must-have. -

Pat Metheny - Tokyo Day Trip: Live EP (2008) 320kbps

1 Tromsø 9:44
2 Traveling Fast 11:53
3 Inori 6:03
4 Back Arm & Blackcharge 6:34

Pat Metheny: Acoustic Guitar, Guitar, Electric Sitar, Guitar (Baritone)
Christian McBride: Acoustic Bass
Antonio Sanchéz: Drums, Orchestra Bells

The Pat Metheny Trio’s Tokyo Day Trip EP collects five tracks that were originally issued as bonus tracks on different projects—in Japan and by Nonesuch—and offers them to fans for a bargain price tag. This is no mere marketing gag. For a long time now, fans have been requesting these cuts, all of which were recorded before the trio went in to record the phenomenal Day Trip album that was released in January of 2008. Metheny, bassist Christian McBride, and drummer Antonio Sanchéz offer a solid and wildly diverse 40-minute set of music. The disc opens with the lengthy introspective and wonderfully atmospheric electric ballad “Tromsø.” It’s followed by the guitarist’s trademark euphoric and sophisticated post-bop jazz “Traveling Fast” and the acoustic pastoral piece “Inori.” “The Night Becomes You,” which closes the set, is a gorgeous impressionistic jazz ballad that marries Metheny’s harmonic palette with Bill Evans’ lyric sensibility and sense of sparseness. These four cuts are all worthy additions to Metheny’s catalog and make for a compelling listen. All of this said, the real icing on the cake for many will be the kinetic, knotty, and overdriven “Back Arm & Blackcharge,” which places the trio firmly in the category of electric jazz-rock—all the more impressive given the fact that McBride plays an acoustic bass on it. Long, loud, labyrinthine lines flow from Metheny’s guitar, wedding bebop, funk, controlled feedback, choppy Hendrixian chord voicings, and a pure rockist’s sense of attack to a rhythm section set on stun. Sanchéz’s breakbeats and triple-time polyrhythmic inversions take in jazz history from Gene Krupa and Max Roach to Elvin Jones and postmodern Afro-Cuban clave extrapolations. McBride’s force and brutally quick changes between single line and chords act as a bridge between Metheny and Sanchéz—but all the while it’s his game, given the way rhythms shift and interlock and create new pulses. This track alone is worth the price of admission, and makes the EP essential. Metheny, who understands his fan base better than just about any other jazz artist out there, knows that some fans already have some of these cuts, and has made the individual selections available as digital downloads as well.
