Scott Wilkie - Home Again: The Solo Piano Sessions (2008)
Smooth Jazz | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 49 min | 113 MB
Label: BeachMusic Studios | Rel: 2008

Some critics complained about Scott's music that he seemed a slave to dated synth sounds. Far from it! With his new album Scott concentrates on the pure melody and showcases the strength of his songs. The album starts with The One. The tones fall like raindrops. One after the other, building the melody with care and flowing together. After the long hiatus since his album More Then You Know there is a big deep breath in the smooth jazz world. Scott is back and still creative. Home Again: The Solo Piano Sessions is Scott's melodic approach to the zone of Jim Brickman and Richard Clayderman. Those who have attended his concerts will know that this is only a small feature of his music personality.

Marilyn Mazur - Flamingo Sky (2014)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 61:18 min | 145 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Stunt Records

Multi-instrumentalist Marilyn Mazur began as a child prodigy in the late 1960s and in the early ‘70s she was already leading her own group. Extremely progressive for the times, Zirenes featured Mazur as composer, pianist, voca list and dancer. Other groups followed: Six Winds, MM4 and Primi Band, all with Mazur as the creative epicenter. Mazur was extremely active on the international music scene as a member of Miles Davis’ various bands from 1985, and later toured with an impressive list of artists including Wayne Shorter, Gil Evans and Jan Gabarek. Her own group for many years, Future Song, was also an international attraction.

Kenny Burrell and The Jazz Heritage All-Stars - Live at the Blue Note (1996)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 9 Tracks | 1:01:57 | 154 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Concord Jazz

Always one of the most tasteful of musicians, guitarist Kenny Burrell is in fine form on this set from 1996. He is joined by a rhythm section led by pianist Sir Roland Hanna, trumpeter Jimmy Owens (who is in excellent form), either Steve Turre or Benny Powell on trombone and the underrated tenor-saxophonist and flutist Jerome Richardson. Burrell sings a heartfelt "Dear Ella" (his voice is just average) and there is a vocal apiece by Jeannie Bryson (a sensuous "I've Got A Crush On You") and Vanessa Rubin ("All Blues"). Other highlights of this relaxed bop set include Scott Joplin's "The Entertainer," Richardson's "Groove Merchant" and a medley of "Embraceable You" and Charlie Parker's "Quasimodo." (allmusic.com)

Max Johnson Trio - The Invisible Trio (2014)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 40:25 min | 101 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Fresh Sound New Talent

The musical lineage within the small circle of bassist Max Johnson's trio is unquestionably among the finest in cutting-edge jazz. The leader has played with bassist William Parker, alto legend Anthony Braxton, trombonist Steve Swell and drummer Tyshawn Sorey. In the case of Johnson's current trio, his drummer, Ziv Ravitz, is also a member of the Lee Konitz Quartet and has performed with Joe Lovano, Tomasz Stanko, Aaron Parks and many others. Kirk Knuffke ranks as an equal to Rob Mazurek and Taylor Ho Bynum as one of the top cornet players in jazz. On The Invisible Trio—the second outing for the trio—Johnson's work projects excitement but without dictating an attitude; it is both intellectual and melodic.

Ella Fitzgerald - Ballads (2003)
Vocal Jazz, Easy Listening | MP3 320 kbps CBR | Booklet | 71 min | 167 MB
Label: Saga Sarl | Rel: 2003

Until I heard Ella perform them, I didn’t realize how good our songs were,” said Ira, George Gershwin’s brother and cowriter. They didn’t give Ella Fitzgerald the title “First Lady of Song” just because her devastating sense of swing could set the house on fire. She was just as formidable when performing ballads, and possessed skills capable of transmitting the slightest emotion.

The Essential Sonny Rollins - The RCA Years (2005)
Jazz, Hard Bop | MP3 320 kbps CBR | Artworks | 129 min | 300 MB
Label: RCA Victor | Rel: 2005

This handy double-disc set is a streamlined compilation from the six-CD box of Sonny Rollins Complete RCA Victor Recordings. Rollins' tenure with the label coincided with his return from an extended period of inactivity between 1962 and 1964. Before his fine Impulse outings, Rollins began exploring the fringes of modern jazz playing outside. These various situations are represented here to a degree. Obviously, the most notable cuts come off The Bridge, one of his seminal outings, and from What's New, both of which featured guitarist Jim Hall. The more "out" material here comes from Our Man in Jazz and Three in Jazz with Ornette Coleman's sidemen Billy Higgins and Don Cherry the latter album also featured vanguard bassist Henry Grimes.

Champian Fulton - Change Partners: Live At The Yardbird Suite (2014)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 12 Tracks | 82:26 | 191 MB
Genre: Jazz, Vocal Jazz | Label: Cellar Live

Pianist/vocalist Champian Fulton grew up with music in her home. Her father (jazz trumpeter and educator Stephen Fulton) and mother quickly recognized their daughter's interest in music at an early age. The presence of her father's musician friends, including Clark Terry and Major Holley, also served to stimulate her focus on music. She began studying piano with her grandmother at the age of five, while she later took up singing, drums, and trumpet before eventually settling on piano and vocals...

Alex Pangman - New (2014)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 10 Tracks | 36:12 | 100 MB
Genre: Jazz, Vocal Jazz | Label: Justin Time Records

Toronto’s Alex Pangman is set to release “new”, her 3rd album with Justin Time Records on November 3rd, at Toronto’s Hugh’s Room, with subsequent launches on November 7th at Montreal’s Upstairs Jazz, and November 9th at London ON’s Aeolian Hall. The album was recorded in New Orleans. New being the theme, it represents both a new chance at life — Pangman had second lung transplant just seven months before recording this album — but also a shock of new things. New co-producer Andrew Gilchrist recorded Pangman in New Orleans using new musicians from the city where jazz was born...

Caetano Veloso: Multishow Ao Vivo - Abracaco (2013)
Video: NTSC, MPEG-2 at 3 631 Kbps, 720 x 480 at 29.970 fps | Audio: AC-3 6ch. at 448 Kbps, PCM 2ch. at 1 536 Kbps
Genre: Bossa Nova, Latin American | Label: Universal | Copy: Untouched | Release Date: 27 Aug 2013 | Runtime: 103 min. | 4,35 GB (DVD5)
Subtitles: English, Spanish, Portuguese

A true heavyweight, Caetano Veloso is a pop musician/poet/filmmaker/political activist whose stature in the pantheon of international pop musicians is on a par with that of Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, and Lennon/McCartney. And even the most cursory listen to his recorded output over the last few decades proves that this is no exaggeration.
Born in 1942 in Santo Amaro da Purificacao in Brazil's Bahia region, Veloso absorbed the rich Bahian musical heritage that was influenced by Caribbean, African, and North American pop music, but it was the cool, seductive bossa nova sound of João Gilberto (a Brazilian superstar in the 1950s) that formed the foundation of Veloso's intensely eclectic pop.

Annie Sellick - A Little Piece of Heaven (An Evening with Annie Sellick) (2005)
Vocal Jazz | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 67 min | 166 MB
Label: Chalice Music | Rel: 2005

Annie Sellick's latest CD captures her live in performance at the Vic Jazz Club in Santa Monica, CA. Annie is at her extroverted best, singing a variety of standards and lesser-known tunes. She is accompanied by an all-star Los Angeles band with the great 20-year old jazz pianist Gerald Clayton, already one of the most in-demand jazz pianists in the USA; Dan Lutz on bass; and Kevin Kanner on drums. Bruce Forman adds his masterful jazz guitar to 8 of the 13 selections.

Pat LaBarbera - Deep In A Dream (1999)
Jazz | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 70 min | 164 MB
Label: Universal | Rel: 1999

Thanks to Bill King and Greg Sutherland of RadioLand Jazz, Pat's dream has become a reality. Deep In A Dream is a 12-track collection of lovely, slow burners that is perfect for late-night listening. While some of the tunes are well-known standards (Something To Live For and There's A Lull In My Life), a number of Pat's hand-picked favourites are more obscure. Indeed, Pat states in the liner notes that master balladeer Frank Sinatra's early recordings, Maybe You'll Be There, Why Try To Change Me Now and Deep In A Dream, were the source for these song choices. Although Pat has always been known for his up-tempo, Coltrane-influenced screamers, Deep In A Dream shows that Stan Getz and Lester Young have also inspired him. Brother Joe LaBarbera's brush work is light and feathery, Neil Swainson pulls deep, rich tones from his bass and pianist Don Thompson's occasional solo spots are suitably restrained. Break out the candles and wine and enjoy.
