Atomic - Lucidity (2015)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 55:37 min | 129 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Jazzland Recordings

Through avenues of lights, accompanied loneliness, lonely accompaniments, musical exhortations and tremulous lulling, Atomic introduce their latest opus in typically defiant form. The album assembles the various Atomic components in a thoroughly recognizable yet surprising (and sometimes disconcerting) way, suggesting multiple time signatures, motifs and submotifs, musical tracery that seems to defy explanation in conventional terms. They take moments of minimalist simplicity and contextualize them, by turns, in amorphous textures, angular musical structures, whimsical interplays and rushes of driving frenzy.

Frank Zappa - You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore, Vol. 2 (1988) [2CD] {1995 Ryko Remaster Complete Series}
EAC rip (secure mode) | FLAC (tracks)+CUE+LOG -> 734 Mb | MP3 @320 -> 279 Mb
Full Artwork @ 600 dpi (png) -> 207 Mb | 5% repair rar
© 1995 Rykodisc / The Zappa Family Trust | RCD 10563/64
Rock / Jazz Rock / Experimental Rock / Art Rock

Official Release #52. In his contract with Ryko, Frank Zappa had to put together 12 CDs worth of live material for the series You Can't Do That on Stage Anymore. The fact that he decided to devote two of them (all of Vol. 2) to a Helsinki concert from 1974 illustrates how good and representative he thought it was -- and he was right. This two-CD set features the 1973-1974 band (Napoleon Murphy Brock, George Duke, Ruth Underwood, Tom Fowler, Chester Thompson) near the end of their tour, in a concert in faraway Finland on September 22, 1974 (there were actually two concerts performed that day and, as usual, Zappa edited the best moments together).

Special EFX - Here To Stay (1997) {JVC}
EAC 0.99pb4 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 300dpi | 370MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Smooth Jazz

George Jinda must have forgotten he was doing his latest Special EFX project, because his use of an all-star cast on Here to Stay might be better suited to one of those Fantasy Band discs he was involved in before his debilitating stroke. Not that there's anything sonically wrong with the mainly mellow fare on this disc -- Mark Whitfield, Chuck Loeb, and Gerald Veasley do stellar jobs conveying the melodic thoughts over Jinda's gentle percussion.

From the new liner notes: “The session of March 16, 1956 is one of most beautiful, laid-back, floating-on-a-cloud experiences one can have. The first time I listened to it, I replayed it three times. Side note: ‘Vierd Blues’ is the same piece that appears on Miles’s Trane’s Blues, and there credited to John Coltrane, as it was when Trane first recorded it on a Kenny Drew session, years before. Until it was combined with the 1956 date, the Miles-Bird-Sonny session lay in the vaults. Meanwhile, on May 15, 1953 Bird and Dizzy Gillespie recorded their famed Massey Hall concert in Toronto. When that record was issued ‘Charlie Chan’ was used as Bird’s pseudonym. That’s how it came to be used for Collectors’ Items.”

Lee Morgan - Sonic Boom (1967) {2012 Japanese BNLT Series Remaster}

Lost genius from trumpeter Lee Morgan – a session recorded for Blue Note in 1967, but not issued until the late 70s – and even then, only for a very short time! The session has Morgan moving into that wonderful last stage of his career – working in tight formation towards a sound that still had that groovier hardbop styles of earlier recordings, but which also unfolds towards a more ambitious spiritual jazz mode. The writing on the session is superb – original tunes that crackle with energy in a surge of dark notes and shadowy moods, inspiring the soloists to express themselves at levels that rank with their best work of the time!

Jim Hall - Concierto (1975) Reissue 2001
EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 323 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 170 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included
Genre: Cool, Post-Bop, Guitar Jazz | Label: Epic/Legacy/CTI Records | # 5060252 | Time: 01:05:58

Guitarist Jim Hall is the sort of musician who displays such technical expertise, imaginative conception, and elegance of line and phrase that almost any recording of his is worth hearing. Still, Concierto ranks among the best albums of his superb catalog. For starters, the personnel here is a jazz lover's dream come true. Paul Desmond (saxophone), Chet Baker (trumpet), Roland Hanna (piano), Ron Carter (bass), and Steve Gadd (drums) are on board, creating -- along with Hall -- one of the highest profile lineups ever put to tape. Yet Concierto is not about star power and showboating. As subtle, nuanced, and considered as any of Hall's output, the ensemble playing here demonstrates great group sensitivity and interplay, giving precedence to mood and atmosphere over powerhouse soloing. Conductor and arranger Don Sebesky evinces a chamber ambience from the sextet on "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To," the smoky "The Answer Is Yes," and the Hall centerpiece "Concierto de Aranjuez".

David Friesen Trio - Midnight Mood (2004)
Jazz | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 66 min | 152 MB
Label: Intuition | Rel: 2004

This trio represents all that I have worked for and towards over the many years. It is a trio that has never had a rehearsal and there are no arrangements. The reason for this is so the music will stay as fresh and unpredictable as possible. It demands constant listening, forgiveness and acceptance. I think one of the most important qualities of this trio is the freedom we give each other...and that is...the ability to take chances in the music without the fear of making a mistake. I have never found myself in a more creative setting.
