Someday My Prince Will Come is a worthy salute from Hank Jones on piano, his brother Elvin Jones on drums and Richard Davis on bass. The session is Hank's final collaboration with his brother, who died in May of 2004. The somewhat conservative collection of ten songs commands more respect than awe, but Elvin fittingly delivers many of the album's sharpest and freshest moments.

If you are a fan of phenomenal guitarist Russell Malone, you must have been craving for his recording output. After getting his "break" from recording and touring with Diana Krall, Malone is now leading his own group and just began to issue a steady stream of albums from MaxJazz. But, in 1995, before he joined Krall's band, he had recorded this wonderful gem of an album for the Japanese label Venus Records. Supported by a trio of good musicians, he displays all his talents and soulful playing in this well-recorded release. You'll also love it if you are a fan of straight-ahead, bop- and blues-oriented jazz guitar.

New York-based pianist John Di Martino has found a strong audience in Japan after recording for the Japanese Venus label with his Romantic Jazz Trio, which is rounded out by various bassists and drummers available to record, rather than an actual working group. Veterans Ira Coleman and Grady Tate round out the trio for this 2004 session, which kicks off with a stimulating, sometimes humorous, post-bop workout of the standards.

Barney Wilen had a style that wasn't like anyone else. On this album he exhibits a cool smokey tone and plays these tunes straight ahead. For example, on Mack the Knife, there is no attitude of fake hipness to get in the way of the melody. It doesn't sound like cliched versions of a 50's hipster or someone trying too hard to make something new out of it.

The first thing that strikes the listener of Acqua Fragile's second and final album, 1974's Mass Media Stars, is that singer Bernardo Lanzetti sounds remarkably like Peter Gabriel. These six lengthy songs would sound more than a little like Selling England By the Pound-era Genesis even without that vocal similarity, however.

Live In Japan is a 2001 live CD by British pop rock band 10cc. It is taken from what was called a reunion show of the group in 1993 with Eric Steart and Graham Gouldman but without Kevin Godley or Lol Creme, despite the cover photo. This was originally released in 1993 under the title Alive but this was released by German label Brilliant and removes three songs from the original discs.

Reissue features the latest digital remastering and the high-fidelity SHM-CD format (compatible with standard CD player) and the latest DSD / HR Cutting remastering. Comes with a description. Features the original LP designs. A pretty great live set by Billy Taylor and his early trio with Earl May on bass and Percy Brice on drums – recorded at Town Hall in 1954! Taylor is actually pretty darn amazing on the set – very much the virtuoso, playing with an incredible range and an almost modern approach to the tunes – one that seems looser, and more expressive than some of his previous studio sessions for Prestige Records – in a way that makes this album a gem well worth seeking out! Titles include "Theodora", "A Foggy Day", "How High The Moon", and "I'll Remember April".

Reissue with latest remastering. Comes with new liner notes. This cd is the second of 2 put out to chronicle Miles' stay at the Blackhawk in San Francisco in 1961. After a period of transition which included the sometimes uneven results of the "Someday My Prince Will Come" lp, Miles' working band of Hank Mobley on tenor sax, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers, bass, and drummer Jimmy Cobb, were coming together as a tight unit. Both dates of the Blackhawk shows are prime examples of the greatness of this working group.
