Label: Jasmine Records | Release Year: 2016

The 32 tracks on this collection all made the US charts, yet very few charted in the UK. This was an era when radio presenters had a huge amount of freedom to program exactly what they thought or knew their audience wanted. The tracks on this collection cover out and out rockers, country flavors and plenty of R&B and blues. Including "Jivin' Around - Part 1 & 2)", "Bulldog", "Nut Rocker", "Rinky Dink" and more. This set is a must for fans of instrumental music.

Watching the success of indie labels like Atlantic, Chess, Specialty, Imperial, and others, industry giant RCA decided to re-enter the Rhythm & Blues field. RCA had dominated blues recording during the late 1920s and '30s, but the company dropped most of its blues artists, along with many of its country artists, during wartime raw materials rationing. In 1954, RCA decided to get back in the game, hiring A&R man Danny Kessler away from Columbia's OKeh label. The experiment ended in 1957 after notching up just one major hit, Mickey & Sylvia's Love Is Strange.

This is a pretty uneven collection, which is not surprising given the fact that the title track by Reggie Perkins is one of the coolest things here and it's from a juvenile delinquency B-movie of the same name. The Jays' "Panic Stricken" is pretty fair rock & roll, but "Jitterbug Joe" is one of those minor embarrassments of the genre, a silly novelty tune.

It is hard to believe that 3 years have passed since that first jam session in the summer of 2014 at Aloha Café. The little snowball haven’t stop growing, after the 6 track promo cassette, that arrived at Rhythm Bomb headquarters, soon A.J. & the Rockin’ Trio were promoting their first CD at The 20th Rockabilly Rave with gigs scheduled outside their old country Portugal, in the far corner of Western Europe.

Classic Jazz, Swing | Label: Bluebird/RCA/BMG | # 6757-2-RB | Time: 01:07:07

This exciting CD has 20 diverse performances that were originally produced by Leonard Feather for the Victor label during 1946-47. The first eight selections feature various versions of Esquire's All-American Award Winners and have some unique combinations of musicians. "Long Long Journey" was the first record to match together Duke Ellington (who verbally introduces the song) and Louis Armstrong, and on "Snafu" Armstrong takes a surprisingly modern solo that hints at bebop. Trumpeter Charlie Shavers creates a remarkable improvisation on "The One That Got Away," ltoist Johnny Hodges plays beautifully on "Gone with the Wind" and other key players include tenor saxophonist Don Byas, trumpeter Buck Clayton, trombonist J.J. Johnson and tenor saxophonist Coleman Hawkins. In addition, there are selections featuring trombonist Jack Teagarden, the 52nd Street All-Stars (with Shavers, Hawkins and tenorman Allan Eager), the tenor of Lucky Thompson, trumpeter Neal Hefti, altoist Benny Carter, singer Mildred Bailey and solo piano records by Art Tatum and Erroll Garner. The mid-to-late '40s were a particularly rich period for jazz and this highly recommended CD is filled with gems.
