Lee Morgan - The Rajah (1966) {2014 Japan SHM-CD Blue Note 24-192 Remaster}
EAC rip (secure mode) | FLAC (tracks)+CUE+LOG -> 308 Mb | MP3 @320 -> 110 Mb
Full Artwork @ 600 dpi (png) -> 253 Mb | 5% repair rar | 24-bit 192 kHz remaster
© 2014 Universal Japan / Blue Note | BN 75th The Masterworks | UCCQ-5023
Jazz / Hard Bop / Trumpet

Features the high-fidelity SHM-CD format (fully compatible with standard CD player) and the latest remastering (24bit 192kHz). This long-lost Lee Morgan session was not released for the first time until it was discovered in the Blue Note vaults by Michael Cuscuna in 1984; it has still not been reissued on CD. Originals by Cal Massey, Duke Pearson ("Is That So") and Walter Davis, in addition to a couple of surprising pop tunes ("What Not My Love" and "Once in My Lifetime") and Morgan's title cut, are well-played by the quintet (which includes the trumpeter/leader, Hank Mobley on tenor, pianist Cedar Walton, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Billy Higgins).

Peter Van Huffel's Gorilla Mask - Bite My Blues (2014)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 53:43 min | 125 MB
Genre: Jazz, Avant-Garde | Label: Clean Feed

Gorilla Mask isn’t only a power trio. Instead of guitar there’s an alto saxophone, and the music comes more from the jazz heritage than rock. Yes, there’s something of the distorted energy of the seminal punk band Black Flag; but the leader of the group, Canadian Peter Van Huffel, comes from the lineage of Charlie Parker and Eric Dolphy to find an appraising estuary in Peter Brotzmann.

“I was the engineer on the recording sessions and I also made the masters for the original LP issues of these albums. Since the advent of the CD, other people have been making the masters. Mastering is the final step in the process of creating the sound of the finished product. Now, thanks to the folks at the Concord Music Group who have given me the opportunity to remaster these albums, I can present my versions of the music on CD using modern technology. I remember the sessions well, I remember how the musicians wanted to sound, and I remember their reactions to the playbacks. Today, I feel strongly that I am their messenger.” — Rudy Van Gelder.

Soft Machine - Drop (1971) {2014 Japan Mini LP SHM-CD Remaster}
EAC rip (secure mode) | FLAC (tracks)+CUE+LOG -> 391 Mb | MP3 @320 -> 148 Mb
Full Artwork @ 600 dpi (png) -> 385 Mb | 5% repair rar | Canterbury Scene Vol.1 Series

Jazz / Jazz Rock / Rock / Avant-Garde Jazz / Prog Rock

Cardboard sleeve reissue. Features SHM-CD format. This CD documents an often-overlooked phase in the long, complex history of Soft Machine: Australian drummer Phil Howard's five-month interim behind the kit, after Robert Wyatt's departure (prior to the arrival of his eventual long-term replacement, John Marshall). Howard was brought into Soft Machine by saxophonist Elton Dean, with both being members of Elton's side project at the time, Just Us. Under their combined influence, the band became freer and wilder than in any other time of its' long, storied existence. Illustrated by this great live recording from the German leg of their "Fifth" tour, the "Phil Howard Soft Machine edition" does swing with wreckless abandon.

Jerry Leonide - The Key (2014)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 58:38 min | 135 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: ACT Music

'The Key', the debut album of the Mauritian pianist Jerry Léonide, is the key to a whole world; to the music and joie de vivre of an island paradise 1,700 km from the coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean. Léonide translates the irresistible, bouncingly danceable, clearly African influenced grooves and light and breezy crystal-clear melodies of his homeland into the vocabulary of jazz. He himself says of his debut: "For me 'The Key' is the revelation of Mauritian music before the eyes of the world." His global piano playing enthralled the jury of the 'Solo Piano Competition 2013' at the Montreux Jazz Festival so much that they awarded him first prize.

Joe Beck & Ali Ryerson - Django (2001)
Jazz | 1cd | EAC Rip | Flac + Cue + Log | covers
DMP SACD-13 | SACD Red Book layer | rel: 2001 | 255Mb

Joe Beck and Ali Ryerson have been working as a team for more than four years, playing concerts and other gigs under the name Duo. This is their second album, and, with the name Django, one would assume it is in honor of guitarist Django Reinhardt. Instead, the set is dedicated to the members of the Modern Jazz Quartet, who pioneered chamber jazz, the style that dominates this session with flautist Ryerson. John Lewis' "Django" is one of the tunes on the agenda that they play within the chamber style. Ryerson's passion for Brazilian music is documented on her six albums for Concord Jazz.

R.I.P. Charlie. Keith Jarrett and Charlie Haden broaden the scope of their duo project to showcase jazz classics like Thelonious Monk’s “’Round Midnight” and Bud Powell’s spritely “Dance Of The Infidels”. Love songs, however, are to the fore in this selection, with tender versions of “My Old Flame”, “My Ship”, “It Might As Well Be Spring”, “Everything Happens To Me”, and “Every Time We Say Goodbye” as well as versions of “Where Can I Go Without You” and “Goodbye” which are every bit as touching as the Jasmine renditions.

After college she began working in Chicago with Sax Maestro Von Freeman, and pianist Willie Pickens, who also played on her self-titled release in 2006. "I was lucky to have their guidance, because they were playing jazz with the greats in their day”...
