This two-CD set contains Burrell's earliest Blue Note sessions from 1956. The first seven tracks, with drummer Kenny Clarke, bassist Paul Chambers, pianist Tommy Flanagan, and percussionist Candido Camero were released as Introducing Kenny Burrell.It's a pleasing and swinging

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy did more than any other band to fuel the sing revival of the '90s, due largely to the group's appearance in the 1996 film Swingers. Since then, the craze has waned, although you couldn't tell it by BBVD. If anything, the combo has approaches their fifth album with more gusto and verve than ever, infusing their old-school jive and greasy horns with a New Orleans sensibility and panache and, in the process, creating their strongest album yet. Although their songs sound like th

This 2-CD set was recorded on October 31, 1970 in a single, sleepless night, the fleeting space of a session that took place almost undetected and in a sort of urgent calm. The first CD includes the America Masters previously released on vinyl only. The second CD includes all the alternate takes and comments and directions by Charles Mingus during the sessiontakes. It's fascinating piece of Jazz history. Thankfully, the brains behind this double-disc reissue of two almost forgotten 1970 sessions

A stellar array of soloists keep the Cuban fire raging as you hear Fuego Cubano; Carnival; Recuerdos; Quien Sabe; Early Hours , and more! Composer-arranger Johnny Richards created the music for this concept album, recorded in 1956. It required a very large band for its execution, combining Stan Kenton's usual brass emphasis w

(3-CD box set) Jack Purvis was the Dadaist of jazz, throwing music publisher's stock arrangements into gleeful chaos. He was the trickster of European myth, whose charm and fascinating wickedness trapped otherwise hard-headed businessmen into condoning and collaborating in his nefarious activities. The enigmatic trumpet playing shape-shifter blurred reality so that contradictory accounts would ememge from witnesses present at some of his legendary activities. The 74 tracks on this set were recor
