It is a new listening experience that will virtually make you feel as if you were in the studio with Ella. This early '60s studio session captures Ella Fitzgerald moving toward the smaller, more pointedly jazz-inflected ensembles that would shape her career in her final decades. After the lush orchestrations of her classic series of composer songbooks, which found her collaborating with the best arrangers, the intimate scale and easy interplay of a crack band provide a wonderful platform for the spirited performances here. That Ella herself savored the opportunity is reflected in a program that includes Thelonious Monk's "After Midnight" and a breezy, potent ride through the Charlie Parker/Dizzy Gillespie anthem, "Night In Tunisia." With a mix of bona fide standards and revived swing classics, this is a rediscovered gem, cause enough to clap hands. Tracks include: Night in Tunisia 2. You're My Thrill 3. My Reverie 4.

This LP is a piece of musical audiophile history and is the only Analogue Mastered Pressing of this title. So don't miss out. Would make a great ‘GIFT’ for any jazz/Wes Montgomery fan. One of the greatest guitarists in the history of Jazz. As Wes Montgomery sailed into ever-poppier waters towards the end of his career, two things remained constant: he kept writing and including original tunes on his albums, and he kept playing and including the blues in one shade or another. Thus, on California Dreaming, another big band-orchestrated Verve album, we get "Sun Down," a six-minute original blues, cut for the most part with just the first-call rhythm section of Herbie Hancock, Richard Davis, Grady Tate and Ray Baretto. The original, "Mr. Walker," is just as cooking, and dates from Montgomery's second Riverside album, the aptly titled Incredible Jazz Guitar of Wes Montgomery. California Dreaming emphasizes groove tunes over ballads and keeps the pop challenges to a minimum. Track Listings 1. California Dreaming 2. Sun Down 3. Oh You Crazy Moon 4. More, More, Amor 5.

Body and Soul GEORGE BENSON - Giblet Gravy - LIMITED EDITION AUDIOPHILE 180 GRAM PRESSING Back to Black label's first jazz reissue series Ten legendary Verve titles Mastered at Abbey Road Studios, 180-gram vinyl Features: • 180 Gram Vinyl LP • Mastered at Abbey Road Studios • Back To Black's First Jazz Range • Legendary Verve Title George Benson is one of the modern era's truly great guitarists, who when he sticks to playing the guitar has few rivals. This is very much Wes Montgomery territory, but Benson is no Montgomery copyist; he creates complex tapestries with his rhythmic melody lines that give him a unique sound. Most of the tracks are covers, as was popular at the time, but the title track and "Low Down And Dirty" are written by Benson. Photographer and producer Esmond Edwards had worked at Prestige Records prior to taking over from Creed Taylor at Verve and he had an impressive list of credits to his name, including Miles Davis Along Comes Mary Sunny What's New? Giblet Gravy Walk On By Side 2 Thunder Walk Sack Of Woe Groovin' Low Down And Dirty ASTRUD GILBERTO LOOK TO THE RAINBOW 180 gram LP 180 Gram Vinyl! Brazilian Samba Bossa Nova! Beautiful Vocal Stylings! Pressed at Pallas in Germany! Astrud Gilberto sings a mist of sound. Her voice is small and soft and very intimate. Although it has been described as "the sound of yearning innocence," it is also the sound of hushed intimacy. Astrud married Joao Gilberto in 1959 and emigrated to the U.S. in 1963. She burst into the limelight of American popular music when her vocal on the Stan Getz recording of The Girl From Ipanema captivated enough American ears to help make the record a best-seller, and Astrud a star. It was her first professional appearance as a vocalist. She has absolute command of bossa nova songs, and creates fresh and incisive renditions of American popular songs. This album is Astrud's third. "This was a beautiful bossa nova record of Astrud Gilberto's vocal stylings...All the material here, with the exception of "Learn to Live Alone" and "Pretty Place," which were arranged by Al Cohn, were arranged by Gil Evans. With the exception of a Johnny Coles trumpet solo, the personnel was uncredited on this 1966 recording. Discographies have credited Bob Brookmeyer (valve trombone), Kenny Burrell (guitar), and Grady Tate (drums), but except for a few bars of sax, there was no solo indivdualism in this large Creed Taylor-produced orchestra.

Having mastered all of this, Peterson found the standard piano trio the perfect vehicle for exploring all of these types of music. In this classic LP, the crowning achievement in his greatest year, Peterson doesn't just explore these styles - he conquers them.

Hymn To Freedom Stan Getz Big Band Bossa Nova 180g LP Features: • 180 Gram Vinyl LP • Mastered at Abbey Road Studios • Back To Black's First Jazz Range • Legendary Verve Title The Stan Getz LPs "Jazz Samba" for small ensemble and the classic Focus for big band were surprisingly big sellers - so it is no wonder that Verve producer Creed Taylor, himself an arranger and fan of light, airy strings, put the two components together. The young Gary McFarland took melancholy Brazilian themes by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao Gilberto and Luiz Bonfa, wrote four songs himself and combined the lightfootedness of the bossa nova with the cool, toned-down emotions so typical for Stan Getz’s sound in the Sixties. Verve gathered together the best musicians for the studio recording: Clark Terry, Bob Brookmeyer and Jim Hall were there to produce a carpet of sound over which Stan Getz could float. At the beginning of the Sixties Stan was, of course, at the very top of his form as far as sound perfection goes. After ‘apprenticeship’ with swing bands in the mid-Forties and ‘further training’ with classical small ensembles in the Fifties, he found his ideal source of the art of improvisation: Brazilian music with its songlike, simple themes, Latin-American rhythms, and melodic intervals. And these brought him acclaim, fame and money. The original gatefold sleeve with a drawing by Olga Albizu was the object of many a collector’s desire. Now, 40 years later, both LP and cover are available once again in excellent sound and print quality. Stan Getz (tenorsax); Luiz Bonfa (guitar); Antonio Carlos Jobim (guitar, piano); Maria Toldeo (vocals); George Duvivier, Don Payne, and Tommy Williams (bass); Paulo Ferreira, Dave Bailey, and Jose Carlos (drums) Selections: 1.

Bim Bom Jimmy Smith The Cat...The Incredible Jimmy Smith 180g LP 180 Gram Vinyl LP Reissue of 1964 Set Featuring Kenny Burrell, Grady Tate & Don Butterfield With Arrangements by Lalo Schifrin! Mastered at Abbey Road Studios! The Incredible Jimmy Smith, that's what it says so confidently on the cover with the black cat! The law demands that what is promised must be delivered, and a record collector is no less demanding. The fact that Smith moved the Hammond organ from the dance floor to the jazz scene and upgraded it to become a full-fledged improvisation instrument is to be found in every good dictionary of music. But what resulted must be heard to be believed. No problem for our cat, crouched low and ready to pounce. She slinks along the Rhythm and Blues path, purrs through the night, steps nimbly to the St. Louis Blues, and gives the somewhat aged Basin Street a gentle blow with her paw. In the background is her powerful clan: Kenny Burrell with his firm grip, Don Butterfield with his strong tone, the thundering Grady Tate, and last but not least Lalo Schifrin, who watches over the haunt with a glinting eyes. And then of course there is the Verve gang who made a recording that is as black as the cat herself. Incredible!

This Collection sparkles with 15 gems, including Krall's treatment of the classics "S'Wonderful," "Let's Fall In Love," and "Little Girl Blue." Also included are three previously unreleased tracks!

Fly Me To The Moon *Previously Unreleased Wes Montgomery & Wynton Kelley Trio Live Smokin' @ Half Note LIMITED EDITION SPEAKER CORNER AUDIOPHILE 180 GRAM PRESSING . An American jazz critic once said that Wes Montgomery was the "best thing that could happen to a guitar". Grand words, one might say quickly racking one's brains to come up with other great names. But after only a few minutes of listening to this live recording made in 1965 at the Half Note in New York, you will forget your brain-storming and concentrate on the unfused performance of this brilliant guitarist and the superb Wynton Kelly Trio. The very first number on this album, which despite its tongue-in-cheek title "No Blues" is full of the spirit of black jazz, makes plain Montgomery's unique talents. Highly-polished arching melodies, sharply-dissonant chordal runs and free improvisation displaying brilliant technique are the characteristics of this wizard of the "semi-acoustic" guitar. The quartet's thrilling mixture of Blues, Latin and Soul is as fresh, modern and compelling as it was 30 years ago. This is music which gets down to the nitty-gritty, is always cool and straight with no fuss or frills getting in the way: the message comes over clearly - and it makes the blood surge through one's veins! The almost tangible atmosphere of the recording venue and the pure sound quality further enhance this collector's item and guarantee a jazz happening of the very highest order. Track Listings 1.

I now own all Verve Remixed on vinyl and cd. The record versions definitely add another layer to the listening experience. Volume 4 delivers with 2 mixes of Nina Simone, Gimme Some and Taking Care of Business that make you turn the volume up! Also Diplos mix of Martha Shaws California Soul is epic!HERE ARE TWO CD VERVE REMIXES AS FREE BONUSES TO THE COLLECTION - VERVE REMIX VOLUME ONE - THIS COPY IS OPEN BUT THE CD HAS ONLY BEEN PLAYED ONCE - The manipulation of classic jazz tracks has been part of DJ club culture since the '80s, as artists have continually scratched, looped, and sampled beats and phrases. Verve Remixed has been in the planning stages for years, with in-house producers inviting an international cast of remix artists to select songs from the label's vaults. The results are often tremendously successful, as the remix artists have picked up and expanded upon elements already present in the original. The funky Latin beat of Willie Bobo's "Spanish Grease" gets new life from Richard Dorfmeister, along with a prominent new bass line. Similarly, King Britt pumps up the Indian elements of Tony Scott's "Hare Krishna." dZihan and Kamien's trance remix (with tabla drums) of Billie Holiday's "Don't Explain" is among the most arresting tracks, creating psychodrama between Holiday's original vocal and the new environment. Nina Simone's voice seems tailor-made for this approach, as if it has always cried out for the layered rhythmic emphasis. Masters at Work's take on her "See-Line Woman" is electric in its intensity--cool flute sonorities and metallic percussion embrace and catapult the original vocal into a new presenceVOLUME TWO NEW SEALED COPY - Ever hear some music that is familiar yet undauntingly fresh , catchy and infectious that it rarley comes out of one your various CD players? Well that is exactly what happens when you listen to yet another fantastic offering from the Verve vaults of jazz classics. The reworking of the songs originally made famous by some of the jazz heavyweights(check out the names in parenthesis) breathes new life yet maintains much of the flavor of the originals resulting in a pleasing disc with integrity. The reconstruction, remixing and arranging is flat out cool. Some remixes are more exceptional than others. A few that come to mind are the tangoesque version of Sarah Vaughns "Whatever Lola Wants." Even if you have never heard the song it is guaranteed you will be singing along and groovin to the tune. Other faves include the Cuban influenced Dizzy Gillespie classsic "Manteca," Willie Bobo's soulful "Fried Neckbones and Some Home Fries" with it's sabor Latino(Latin flavor) that barely detracts from the original version, the hyper-thump-thump beat of Nina Simone's "Sinnerman," the music dropping out of the bottom dub effects of Hugh Masekela's "Mama" and the bizarre shrill, high pitched revamping cry out of " watchiwara" on the mellow Latin jazz standard "Soul Sauce" driven by Cal Tjaders vibes. There is only one song that doesn't fit for my tastes, although I like the song, and that is the light airy Brazilian entry by Koop on Astrud Gilberto's "Here's That Rainy Day." Overall the disc achieves one of it's goals which is to expose jazz music to the dance generation. Being pretty familiar with most of the originals I found the remixes to be very satisfying as though resusitated by a breath of fresh air. I thouroughly enjoyed this disc as much as Verve Remixed 1 and quite possibly even more. Great art work cover too that is further detailed inside the disc with closeups of a Verve 8 track player with a piled on portable electric hot plate heating up some Verve food. If you like a plate of chill out, dance grooves served with a heaping serving of jazz classics than you'll love this disc. Highly recommended.
