Astrud Gilberto's entry in the nicely appointed Verve Jazz Masters compilation series shows exactly why the Brazilian singer is deserving of such an accolade. In her '60s heyday, Gilberto was often derided by jazz purists for her vibrato-less "desafinado" (deliberately slightly off-pitch) singing style and deadpan, childlike voice. But the diminutive bossa nova star has since been a huge influence on dozens of jazz and pop singers. VERVE JAZZ MASTERS is less of a greatest hits package than it is a smartly balanced retrospective of many of Gilberto's best performances. Her biggest hits, "Call Me" and "Summer Samba," are not included, and her signature tune, "The Girl From Ipanema," is only represented by a live take from a 1964 Carnegie Hall concert. The collection places equal emphasis on Gilberto's bossa nova-style interpretations of jazz standards and on her signature Portuguese-language sambas.

Album released in 1994 compiling the main hits of the Brazilian singer Astrud Gilberto (Bahia, 1940) in her previous recordings. Despite the usual quality of Verve recordings, in this case it misses a real remastering of the original records, on topics such as his famous 'Girl from Ipanema'. But the sweetness, quality and warmth of the voice of Astrud allowed to pass on these inconveniences, highlighting its enormous importance among the other stars of Brazilian music.

Although it's not a definitive overview of Astrud Gilberto's Verve recordings, Talkin' Verve is a solid sampler of her years with the label, boasting 16 songs including "Beginnings," "Bim Bom," "Wailing of the Willow," "Don't Leave Me, Baby," "Stay," "She's a Carioca," and "Windy." In order to be definitive, her recordings with Stan Getz would have to have been included, but as it stands, this isn't a bad introduction to her solo recordings.

Oscar Peterson was recorded by Verve more often than any other artist. In those years, his groups had the ability to not just keep up with him but become equal partners in creating music that would soar the heights while never forgetting to flat-out swing. Hear him in classic duo, trio, and big-band settings with such stalwarts as Cannonball Adderley, Ray Brown, Herb Ellis, Sam Jones, Clark Terry, and Ed Thigpen.

One of the most distinctive of all pianists, Erroll Garner proved that it was possible to be a sophisticated player without knowing how to read music, that a creative jazz musician can be very popular without watering down his music, and that it is possible to remain an enthusiastic player without changing one's style once it is formed. A brilliant virtuoso who sounded unlike anyone else, on medium tempo pieces, Erroll Garner often stated the beat with his left hand like a rhythm guitar while his right played chords slightly behind the beat, creating a memorable effect.

Vol. 5 of the Verve Jazz Masters series features Bill Evans, who recorded a handful of interesting studio, live in concert, and individualistic projects in his mid-career from 1962-1969. This was a bridge period when he recorded for Verve, after his initial efforts on Riverside and before his return to that recording company with subsequent albums on the Riverside-affiliated Fantasy imprint. There are several different trios featured here among the 13 selections, but not exclusively triads, as a duet or quartet session is tossed in for good measure. Only two of his compositions are present, most particularly "Funkallero," as well as a modicum of standards, the pop tune "Alfie," and zingers like Thelonious Monk's "Bemsha Swing," Joe Zawinul's "Angel Face," and Denny Zeitlin's "Quiet Now." All are played with the typical restraint and melodic brilliance you consistently expect from Evans. The sole standout soloists are guitarist Jim Hall and tenor saxophonist Stan Getz. The collection showcases a sliver of Evans experimenting with different aspects of his then well-developed musical voice.

Label: Verve | Rel: 1994

A compilation of live recordings from the late '50s and mid '60s, this disc reveals a lesser-known side of the Duke. Loose and highly energetic in both structure and execution, these tracks show that even in mid-century Ellington was still keeping apace with musical developments. Particularly intriguing is his foray into modal jazz with "La Plus Belle Africaine," a 14-minute atmospheric journey full of stark, tribal rhythms and snaking melody lines. Ellington here seems to have loosened the formality of his earlier bandleading, replacing it with a wilder approach, powerful dynamics, and shouts and banter between the bandmembers.
