Reissue with the latest 2014 DSD remastering. Comes with new liner notes. Well, it's not the Plugged Nickel or electric Japan in the 70s – but this is a surprisingly great 2LP set of live work by Miles from the early 80s – recorded in New York and Boston, with a lively full-on concert sort of feel! The group features Marcus Miller on bass, Bill Evans on soprano sax, Al Foster on drums, Mike Stern on guitar, and Mino Cinelu on percussion – and the tracks are long tunes, done with a bit of electricity, and sort of a joyous approach overall. Titles include "Kix", "My Man's Gone Now", "Jean Pierre", "Fast Track", and "Back Seat Betty".

Part of the fun of listening to Universal Music's Jazz in Paris series is digging into their compilations of obscure recordings, such as these two mid-'50s sessions, led by Buddy Banks and Bobby Jaspar. Banks, originally a saxophonist who switched to bass, had arrived in Europe after World War II; he is accompanied by drummer Roy Haynes, pianist Bob Dorough, and guitarist Jimmy Gourley. The leader takes the spotlight in a subtle take of "Yesterdays," though a strange clicking mars an otherwise swinging "I Love You." Banks' group also offers serviceable interpretations of modern pieces like Gerry Mulligan's "Line for Lyons" and Milt Jackson's "Bag's Groove"…

Reissue features the latest DSD / HR Cutting remastering and the high-fidelity SHM-CD format (compatible with standard CD player). Comes with a description. Features the original LP designs. In a perfect world, Curtis Peagler's Modern Jazz Disciples would have had a longer run and built a much larger catalog. But regrettably, the Cincinnati quintet is only a small footnote in the history of hard bop and gave listeners only two albums. The first was this self-titled LP, which was recorded for Prestige's New Jazz subsidiary in 1959. The Modern Jazz Disciples shows the late Peagler, who turned 29 that year, to be a hard-swinging alto saxman in the Charlie Parker/Sonny Stitt/Cannonball Adderley/Phil Woods vein – his hot-blooded solos on tracks like "A Little Taste," "Slippin' and Slidin'," and the standard "After You've Gone" make this record well worth the price of admission.

An album that shows the inventiveness of an "essential" recording of Fine Electro-Jazz for all Café Del Mar' collectors. It compiles the efforts of several top European producers, the sounds and styles on display here have strong links to London's electronic scene, the Parisian/American jazz-house community, and Germany's earthy breakbeat maestros. Toni Simonen has succeeded in creating a tight compilation which will excite aficionados of electro beats while even jazz fans will not have any trouble keeping up their interest. Highlights are numerous, from Jakatta' "The other world," Tom Middleton and The Karminski Experience "The Sea". Employing deep house, tittering breaks, and down-tempo attitudes that virtually re-invented the entire electro jazz movement, taking cues from ambient and its chin-stroking underground, songs like "Timeless" or "Zeus" seem to highly respond to the jazz excursions while carrying all the emotional weight of an inspiring collection Sometimes spiced with vocals, and always supported with backings that are sensitive and spare enough to let the work of the main soloist take center stage!

Chesney Henry "Chet" Baker Jr. was an American jazz trumpeter and vocalist. Baker earned much attention and critical praise through the 1950s, particularly for albums featuring his vocals (Chet Baker Sings, It Could Happen to You). Jazz historian Dave Gelly described the promise of Baker's early career as "James Dean, Sinatra, and Bix, rolled into one". His well-publicized drug habit also drove his notoriety and fame. Baker was in and out of jail frequently before enjoying a career resurgence in the late 1970s and '80s.

Hilda Kazasyan was born in Sofia in a family of musicians. She started singing as early as at 4 years of age, with children’s songs recorded at The National Radio. At the age of 9, together with Todor Kolev, she sang the song “Big ones, small ones” which became immediately a real hit. Even as a schoolgirl she became a soloist of the Youth Big Band which toured across Russia (at that time still the USSR). Later on, already as a marimba soloist of a string orchestra, she toured England. Hilda Kazasyan has graduated from “Lyubomir Pipkov” School of Music with percussion instruments. Then she continued her studies in the classical department of the Conservatoire, again with percussions. Right after her graduation from Sofia Academy of Music, she majored for one year percussion instruments in Saluzzo – Italy…..

Coleman Randolph Hawkins, nicknamed Hawk and sometimes "Bean", was an American jazz tenor saxophonist. One of the first prominent jazz musicians on his instrument, as Joachim E. Berendt explained: "there were some tenor players before him, but the instrument was not an acknowledged jazz horn". While Hawkins is strongly associated with the swing music and big band era, he had a role in the development of bebop in the 1940s.

Reissue with SHM-CD format and the latest 24bit remastering. Comes with a mini-description. An overlooked chapter in American bossa jazz of the 60s – recordings that weren't nearly as well-circulated as the Stan Getz bossa nova albums on Verve, but which have an equally special sort of sparkle! The arrangements here are by Manny Albam and Al Cohn – who both bring an earlier sense of large jazz charts into play with the tighter rhythms of the bossa – at a level that makes things explode nicely with a sense of color, while still keeping the groove light overall!
