This somewhat obscure MPS LP features pianist Earl Hines' working band of 1970. Most notable is singer Marva Josie's effective version of "I Just Wanna Make Love To You" that opens the date (although musically, this Chicago electric blues classic is a bit out of place). Josie also pops up on three other songs (including Hines' "Night In Trinidad"), but makes less of an impact on those numbers. Not enough is heard from Haywood Henry (doubling on baritone and clarinet), and the pianist's solos are not as lengthy or explorative as usual. However, there are some bright moments, most notably "Second Balcony Jump" and three solo Hines features.

Reissue with the latest remastering. Comes with liner notes. Earl Hines has a very cool trio here – a unique group that features Richard Davis on bass and Elvin Jones on drums – both younger modern players who provide a surprising match for his lead work on piano! Hines really seems to step up to the setting, and although his phrasing and tone echo his older years in jazz, there's also a fresh crackle to the record too – one that may also partly come from the way in which Earl was really being rediscovered and re-exposed at the time of the album's recording.

Ry Cooder's exceptional Paradise and Lunch takes a popular precept – music as the common denominator across all languages and styles – to extremes few artists have envisioned let alone fulfilled. Considered by many diehards to be the California native's finest hour, the 1974 set unfurls with rarified levels of joyousness, ingenuity, and sophistication. A prime contender for any Desert Island list and an album that repeatedly restores your faith in the inimitable effects experienced upon listening to special performances, Paradise and Lunch is an eternal "musicians' musician" record – an adventurous, ambitious, soulful leap down roads well-traveled and paths less known. Such eclecticism, virtuosity, and ebullience resonate with unmatched verve on our hybrid SACD. Mastered from the original master tapes and strictly limited to 2000 numbered copies, this audiophile reissue boasts dead-quiet surfaces, superb transient response, front-to-back soundstaging, and an organic immediacy that heightens the enjoyment, character, and craft of the arrangements.

Genre: Latin Jazz, Bossa Nova

This release presents the complete 1962 LP Bossa Nova U.S.A. (Columbia CL1998/CS9364), by the classic Dave Brubeck Quartet with Paul Desmond, Gene Wright and Joe Morello. Released during the bossa nova craze that took place in the United States in the early 1960s (when many renowned jazz performers also recorded their own blend of bossa and jazz), this was Brubeck’s contribution to the genre although it mostly consisted of the pianist’s own compositions. As a bonus, three songs that complete the album’s sessions, and four isolated tracks from the same period that constitute complete sessions in and of themselves.
