This double-CD set gave bassist Milt Hinton an opportunity to engage in reunions with many of his old friends from the 1930s. The seven sessions were compiled during a 12-month period and the results are often delightful. The opening "Old Man Time" is sung by Hinton himself, and it is both insightful and humorous. The other highlights include Joe Williams singing "Four or Five Times" (which features some very rare Flip Phillips clarinet), three bass guitar duets with Danny Barker, appearances by Dizzy Gillespie, Lionel Hampton, Clark Terry, Al Grey, Ralph Sutton, and the formation of a group called "The Survivors" that has guitarist Al Casey at age 75 being the youngest member; the latter band also includes 85-year-old trumpeter Doc Cheatham, Eddie Barefield, Buddy Tate and even Cab Calloway. A lot of storytelling takes place during the songs and, in addition to the 92½ minutes of music, there are two "Jazzspeaks." The 13-minute one features Hinton, Calloway, Cheatham and Barefield reminiscing about their experiences in the early days, while a marvelous 45-minute monologue by the bassist covers most of his long and productive life and is consistently fascinating. Highly recommended.

The very complementary tenors Al Cohn and Zoot Sims (whose similar styles often made them sound almost identical) teamed up many times through the years; this reissue brings back their first joint recording. Joined by either Dave McKenna or Hank Jones on piano, bassist Milt Hinton, drummer Osie Johnson, and (on some selections) the forgotten trumpeter Dick Sherman, Al and Zoot avoid obvious material ("Somebody Loves Me" and "East of the Sun" are the only standards) in favor of swinging "modern" originals by Cohn, Sherman, Osie Johnson, Ralph Burns, Manny Albam, Ernie Wilkins, and Milty Gold. Zoot contributed "Tenor for Two Please, Jack," his answer to the song "Dinner for One Please, James." [Some releases add four alternate takes to the original 12-song program, giving one a good example of the occasional Cohn-Sims musical partnership.]

Fusion, Jazz-Rock | Country: USA | Label: Colin Hinton

On his debut full-length as a bandleader and composer, Hinton’s Glassbath channels the edgy jazz/rock of Jim Black's AlasNoAxis, the vast sonic landscapes of post-rock pioneers such as Mogwai and Godspeed You! Black Emperor, the post-hardcore/indie-rock of Dallas’ Red Animal War, and the audacious experimental jazz of Anthony Braxton, Henry Threadgill, and Peter Brötzmann. With the leader’s passionate and deeply musical drumming at its core, the group honors Hinton’s duel allegiance to both the Texas indie rock scene and New York’s forward-thinking jazz community. Angular pulses draw the listener in, before abrupt left turns into frenetic abstraction turn expectations upside down.

The life and struggles of King Hussein of Jordan, from the assassination of his grandfather to the rise of the PLO. King Hussein of Jordan: Survival Of A Dynasty is the first in a two-part series telling the story of Jordan's monarch from 1952 to his death in 1999. Hussein was just 15 when, in July 1951, his grandfather, King Abdullah I, the founder of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, was shot dead by a Palestinian gunman at the gate of al-Aqsa Mosque in eastern Jerusalem. Hussein witnessed the assassination, and in a radio interview later in his life described how it impacted him and his understanding of the dangers - as well as the responsibilities - facing a monarch.
