The Nighthawks were founded in 1972 by vocalist/harmonica player Mark Wenner and guitarist Jimmy Thackery, and joined early on by bass player Jan Zukowski and drummer Pete Ragusa. Based in Washington, D.C., they built on their Chicago blues roots to create a unique musical repertoire that features blues, roots rock, rockabilly and soul. They became known as one of the hardest working and most popular blues bands as they toured nationally in the ‘70s and ‘80s, playing 300 shows a year from the mid-‘70’s to the mid-‘80’s.

This Mobile Fidelity CD draws its music from two solo piano albums released by the Melodiya label featuring the Russian pianist Leonid Chizhik. Chizhik certainly displays his versatility throughout the performances with the playful "Spontaneous Improvisation" shifting from stride to classical music, from a waltz to hints of Oscar Peterson. The soulful "Mobious Strip" is not that far from Keith Jarrett, "Dedication" is an abstract tribute to Chick Corea and "Composition on the Theme 'Every Day We Say Goodbye'" evolves from the starkness of Ran Blake to the soulful Ray Bryant and eventually classical music…

This is an excellent CD if you're into orchestrations of pop or rock music. Andrew Powell And The Philharmonic Orchestra do justice to some of The Alan Parsons Project's most recognizable songs, and did this before this became 'de rigeur' in the late 80's through now…

This album is unique in Mingus' enormous catalog. As the title indicates, the famous bassist takes to the ivories solo to give life to his dazzling improvisational art. At first it seems odd to hear Mingus without one of his trademark interactive and exploratory ensembles. But the sensibility that he brings to this collection of piano pieces bears all the signs of the composer's genius…

This is a true classic. Altoist Art Pepper is joined by an 11-piece band playing Marty Paich arrangements of a dozen jazz standards from the bop and cool jazz era. Trumpeter Jack Sheldon has a few solos, but the focus is very much on the altoist who is in peak form for this period…

The fourth album by Procol Harum was released as the band was in the midst of a significant shift. With the departure of organist Matthew Fisher, guitarist Robin Trower stepped more to the fore. The two-keyboard approach was still being utilized, with singer Gary Brooker's piano being joined on some selections by the organ playing of multi-instrumentalist Chris Copping. However, the stately grandeur that had been previously applied with grace and subtlety gave way to a band that rocked much harder…
