This is one of the finest small-group sessions of cornetist Thad Jones' career. With strong and very alert assistance from drummer Mel Lewis (his co-leader in their celebrated big band), pianist Harold Danko, and bassist Rufus Reid, Jones plays at his peak on six standards, two of which were issued for the initial time on this CD reissue. Four of the songs are at least nine minutes long (two are over 15 minutes), yet Jones never loses his momentum. The musicians constantly surprise each other and there are many spontaneous moments during this often brilliant outing.

John Coltrane (1926-67) was the most relentlessly exploratory musician in jazz history. He was always searching, seeking to take his music further in what he quite consciously viewed as a spiritual quest. In terms of public recognition, this quest began relatively late. The tenor saxophonist, a native of North Carolina who later moved to Philadelphia, was 28 when he joined the Miles Davis quintet in 1955, after years of paying dues in the big band and combo of Dizzy Gillespie (where he played alto before switching to tenor) and as a supporting player behind saxophonists Johnny Hodges, Eddie "Cleanhead” Vinson, and Earl Bostic. Coltrane’s anguished tone and multi-noted, rhythmically complex solos with Davis quickly elevated him to the front ranks of jazz…

Any 1950s Miles Davis recording could easily be called a “collector’s item,” but these selections have special claims to this description. The first four offer Charlie Parker in his only recordings in support of Miles, who had begun his disc career as Bird’s sideman. The last four feature a unique Davis/Mingus encounter. In between is Miles just before launching his first great Quintet, heading two groups loaded with top talent of the “post-bop” period. Recorded on January 30, 1953 (1-4) WOR Studios, New York City and March 16, 1956 (5-7) at Van Gelder Studio in Hackensack, NJ.

While there are only four men present for this session and arranging is certainly not stressed, Tadd’s composing is as potent as ever with such memorable items as “Mating Call,” “Soultrane,” “Gnid,” and “On a Misty Night” far above the usual “originals” that often appear on a recording date. To play these compositions, the aid of tenorman John Coltrane was enlisted. Trane’s tenor answered the mating call of Tadd’s music. Tadd’s intelligent comping, the strength of veteran John Simmons’s bass and the brightly burning power of the consistent Philly Joe Jones adds up to the solid sum that is the rhythm section. Each track has something to offer: the exotic “Mating Call,” the aptly named ballad that is “Soultrane”…

This was a forerunner of the Miles Davis Quintet as it was his first session with Red Garland and Philly Joe Jones. Up to then his Prestige dates had been of the "all star" variety. (Oscar Pettiford fills that bill here.) By the fall, John Coltrane and Paul Chambers would come aboard to help form the first of a continuum of great Davis working groups. On "A Night in Tunisia" Philly Joe used special sticks with little cymbals riveted to the shaft. Recorded June 7, 1955 at Van Gelder Studio in Hackensack, NJ. With Red Garland, Oscar Pettiford, Philly Joe Jones.

Reissue with the latest remastering and the original cover artwork. Comes with a description written in Japanese. Pianist Debbie Poryes works here with a Dutch trio formed right after her arrival on that scene – a nicely-balanced group that really respects Debbie's sensitive touch on the keys, and seems to make her subtle sounds come out even more than they might in the setting! Poryes has an approach that's on the mellower side of lyrical – kind of a post-Bill Evans approach, but even more subtle overall – yet one that's also very striking in its subtlety – as the lean choices of notes show just how far and free jazz piano had come by this time, but in ways that could still swing and stay inside. The group features Hein Van De Geyn on bass and Hans Eykenaar on drums – and titles include "For Brad", "Sweet Georgie Fame", "Holland", "Foolish Door", and "My Romance".

It may be far too obvious to even mention that Norah Jones' follow-up to her 18-million-unit-selling, eight-Grammy-winning, genre-bending, super-smash album Come Away with Me has perhaps a bit too much to live up to. But that's probably the biggest conundrum for Jones: having to follow up the phenomenal success of an album that was never designed to be so hugely popular in the first place. Come Away with Me was a little album by an unknown pianist/vocalist who attempted to mix jazz, country, and folk in an acoustic setting – who knew? Feels Like Home could be seen as "Come Away with Me Again" if not for that fact that it's actually better…
