    Album DescriptionLouis Armstrong and Duke Ellington the most important artists in the history of jazz and the two most influential American musicians of the 20th Century. Because of their centennials (1999 for Duke and 2000 for Louis), their great legacy is celebrating a worldwide rennaissnce. And this month, they are the focus and the continum in Ken Burns' JAZZ, a 20-hour documentary to be broadcast on PBS. In April, 1961, these two giants got togethr in a New York studio for their only encounter. Louis brought his trumpet, voice and the all-stars with Trummy Young and Barney Bigard. Duke brought his pianistic talents and a considerable canon of great compositions. The magic that transpired over one night and the following afternoon was an historic simgularity.

    This disc contains all 17 master takes that made during those magical sessions, newly remixed from the original tapes with 24-bit/96kHz mastering for maximum fidelity, far superior to the previous mid-price CD issue.

    PERSONNEL:
    Louis Armstrong (trumpet,vocals), Trummy Young (trombone), Barney Bigard (clarinet), Duke Ellington (piano), Mort Herbert (bass), Danny Barcelona (drums). ... Read more

    Amazon.comTake George Gershwin'sPorgy & Bess, add Miles Davis and arrangerGil Evans, and what do you get? A classic jazz album that--despite the fact thatthe material has been rendered almost overly familiar due to countlessinterpretations--still sounds remarkably fresh four decades after itsinitial release. Miles' soft yet piercing trumpet style is perfectly suited toGershwin's melancholy melodies, Evans' musical direction of his 18-pieceorchestra is impeccable, and their version of "Summertime" may well be thefinest ever waxed. Davis and Evans teamed up for several recordings after thisone (including the landmarkSketches of Spain), butPorgy & Bess stillstands as one of their most successful collaborations. --Dan Epstein ...

    Editorial Review

    Amazon.com essential recordingWhen Duke Ellington took his orchestra to the Newport Jazz Festival in 1956, the band was in need of an uplift, some humongous event that would revitalize its image in the wake of bebop, hard bop, and so many more jazz currents. Ellington got the lift he needed when he called "Diminuendo in Blue" with set-closer "Crescendo in Blue" tacked on the end. Tenor saxophonist Paul Gonsalves got the nod from Ellington to segue from "Diminuendo" to "Crescendo," and he blew doors. With one rousing 27-chorus solo, Gonsalves blew a fever into the crowd and jump-started Ellingtonia for another generation. Trouble with all this is that the living document of the Newport show is almost fully manufactured, recorded in a studio with crowd madness dubbed in. So this two-CD historical correction is an awesome addition to the centennial-era reissues on Columbia (including Anatomy of a Murder, Such Sweet Thunder, First Time: Count Meets the Duke, and Black, Brown and Beige). The producers revisited the Newport gig after four decades because they discovered an extant Voice of America tape--the one whose microphone Gonsalves blew his solo into, and the VOA tape catches the whole Newport set in its organic glory. Alternately tender with layers of brushstroke orchestration and blazing with the band's well-seasoned tightness, this new Newport is one for the generalist and the Ellington completist. It's got the revived original gig as well as the original commercial release. And they make great siblings, illustrative of the live-event charm and the music industry's dogged labors in reinventing it on record. --Andrew Bartlett1 ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Amazon.com essential recordingCharlie Parker welcomed the opportunity to record standards with a small string ensemble in 1949, and the results are stunning, his liquid alto soaring over the tuneful and only occasionally stiff arrangements. Along the way, he invests tunes like "I Didn't Know What Time It Was" and "Laura" with a unique blend of bluesy realism and mercurial improvisation. The CD adds live versions from a Carnegie Hall concert, and there are also two brilliant versions of Neal Hefti's "Repetition." The 1947 version has Bird flying spontaneously over the dense orchestration of horns, strings, and Latin percussion. --Stuart Broomer ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Amazon.comThese 1957 recordings were the first of Miles Davis's collaborations with arranger Gil Evans for Columbia, renewing a relationship that had begun with the Birth of the Cool sessions in 1949. It was perhaps the most important relationship ever forged between a jazz soloist and an arranger, for Evans excelled at finding fresh material (like Delibes's "The Maids of Cadiz") and then adding subtle voicings and blending unusual instruments to highlight Davis's central voice. Everything Evans does enhances the trumpeter's keen sense of space and his evocative sound. He could construct complex arrangements and make them fly (as on the opening "Springsville," by John Carisi), contrast Davis's voice with tuba or bass clarinet, or create the longing, Spanish-inflected "Blues for Pablo," a precursor to their later Sketches of Spain. --Stuart Broomer1 ...

    Editorial Review

    Album DescriptionThe New York Times called Pat Metheny’s 1992 Grammy Award-winning Secret Story the most sweepingly ambitious album that the jazz guitarist has yet recorded...a nearly 80-minute world-music suite with symphonic underpinnings. If the album functioned then, in the words of critic Stephen Holden, as part travelogue and part soundtrack for a nonexistent film, then this expanded and re-mastered edition can best be described as the director’s cut. Composer and guitarist Metheny revisited and restored five previously unreleased tracks in the studio over the last year, and he’s collected them on a bonus disc. More pastoral in tone than most of the original material on Secret Story and with a decidedly cinematic, orchestral feel these tracks are like the deleted scenes from a deeply evocative yet wordless narrative feature. Back in ’92, Metheny declared that Secret Story was unlike anything I’ve ever done. It’s the largest in scope - 80 people were involved in the record - but it's also the most intimate record I’ve done. ... Read more

    Album DescriptionIn the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, New Orleans nativeson Terence Blanchard has created an impassioned song cycle, ATale of God's Will (A Requiem for Katrina), as his third album forBlue Note Records.(Since signing with the label in 2003, Blanchard hasreleased two other critically-acclaimed albums, Bounce andFlow, the latter of which received two Grammy nominations in 2006. This 13-track emotional tour-de-force of anger, rage, compassion,melancholy, and beauty features Blanchard's quintet- pianist Aaron Parks,saxophonist Brice Winston, bassist Derrick Hodge, drummer Kendrick Scott-as well as a 40-member string orchestra.

    An important jumpstart for A Tale of God's Will was director SpikeLee's decision to document the aftermath of Katrina on film, in what turnedout to be the four-hour award-winning HBO documentary, When the LeveesBroke, which aired last year.Lee, who has enlisted Blanchard onnumerous occasions to score his films, such as Mo' Better Blues, MalcolmX, and Inside Man, tapped him once again for his documentary. Four of the tracks from the documentary were given new arrangements andexpanded rounding out an album of nine new tracks inspired by New Orleansduring and after Hurricane Katrina. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Amazon.comOne of the toughest jobs in assembling the Jazz artist compilations must have been picking the 21 tracks featured on the Duke Ellington disc. Ellington composed thousands of songs and had a career that spanned six decades. More than a jazz great, Ellington is simply one of the most important musical figures in the 20th century. Surprisingly, all the material here was recorded on or before 1960, which eliminates great later works like the Far East Suite and the sacred concerts. Also missing is the legendary 1956 Newport Jazz Festival performance of "Diminuendo in Blue and Crescendo in Blue," which was the flashpoint that revitalized a career that had fallen on commercial hard times with the emergence of bebop. Not surprisingly, there are four tracks from the so-called Blanton-Webster era, which was a happy convergence of personnel and Ellington's own muse that led the Ellington band to unsurpassed heights. A bit flawed, this is the briefest of glimpses at a musical galaxy that goes on forever. --Tad Hendrickson1 ... Read more

    Amazon.comDespite a famously raving review by American film critic granddame Pauline Kael (who dubbed it "the most powerfully erotic movieever made") Bernardo Bertolucci's often unfocused 1973 meditation onsexuality, existential angst and inventive uses of butter can now seemas quaintly compelling as wide collared blazers and velveteen trousers.Indeed, Argentine jazz saxophonist Gato Barbieri's evocative score hasaged better than much of the film. Bertolucci's conceit to structure thefilm loosely around the erotic duel that's at the heart of the Tango ledhim to seek a non-traditional musician to score it (Tango legend AstorPiazzolla was rumored to have been an early consideration). Onceselected, the then-largely obscure Barbieri originally produced a seriesof brief, Tango-jazz fusion cues that functioned more as emotionalpunctuation than traditional underscore. Those musical snippets werelater re-arranged and re-recorded by Oliver Nelson for the wildlysuccessful soundtrack album; it would be another quarter century beforeBarbieri's own recordings were issued, albeit briefly. Both Barbieri'sand Nelson's work are reunited here in a comprehensive edition, emotivefusion-jazz that--for better or worse--virtually opened the door tomainstream jazz successes like Kenny G and the so-called Wave radioformat. --Jerry McCulley ...
