Conventional very good fusion. Even funny. Compared to "Unorthodox Behaviour" and "Moroccan Roll", the compositions here are a bit more diluted: the tracks are less loaded, although there are bits where the bass and drums are complex and fast...

Quincy Jones - Back On The Block (1989) {Qwest}
EAC 0.99pb4 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 300dpi | 454MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Jazz-Funk, Funk, Soul, Hip-Hop

Having let eight years pass since his last A&M album, Quincy Jones made his debut on his own label with his most extravagant, most star-studded, most brilliantly sequenced pop album to date -- which could have only been assembled by the man who put together "We Are the World." Jones was one of the first establishment musicians to embrace rap, and one of the first to link rap with his jazz heritage; it's hard not to be moved by the likes of Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, James Moody, Ella Fitzgerald, Joe Zawinul, Sarah Vaughan, and George Benson electronically appearing on "Birdland" and trading brief licks with the likes of Kool Moe Dee and Big Daddy Kane on "Jazz Corner of the World."

John Proulx - The Best Thing For You (2012)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 14 Tracks | 1:11:32 | 164 MB
Genre: Jazz, Vocal Jazz | Label: MAXJAZZ

While female jazz vocalists outnumber male jazz vocalists five to one, it would be a fallacy to believe there is not a wealth of talent among the men singers. With Louis Armstrong and Chet Baker now memories, and Mark Murphy vocalist and Jon Hendricks in twilight, as Kurt Elling ascends their throne, there exists a vocal diaspora of the most refined and sonically appealing voices singing, and they are all men. Andy Bey, Beat Kaestli, Henry Darragh and John Proulx all have beautifully sweet and slightly androgynous voices that are able to flatter a broad range of song types...

Phil Upchurch - Darkness, Darkness (1972) [Japanese SHM-CD Reissue 2008]
EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 521 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 183 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included
Genre: Fusion, Jazz Funk, Jazz Blues, Jazz Pop | Label: Blue Thumb/Universal | # UICY-93418 | Time: 01:06:54

Recorded in 1971, shortly after he departed Cadet where he served as a house sideman-playing on dozens of records and a prefferred guitarist for Curtis Mayfield and Jerry Butler, Phil Upchurch headed for the West Coast and Blue Thumb Records. Produced by Tommy LiPuma, Upchurch's Darkness, Darkness is his quintessential (double) album, full of laid-back funky grooves, elegant, mind-blowing guitar work, elegant string and horn arrangements, and fine Fender Rhodes work from Donny Hathaway with legendary session bassist Chuck Rainey and smooth jazz piano great Joe Sample in the house. Upchurch effortlessly walks the line where jazz, blues, rock, soul, and funk fold into one another, yet he never gives quarter in the process.

Erroll Garner - In Performance (2002)
Video: NTSC, MPEG-2 at 4 504 Kbps, 720 x 480 at 29.970 fps | Audio: PCM 2 channels at 1 536 Kbps, 48.0 KHz
Genre: Jazz | Label: White Star | Copy: Untouched | Release Date: 1 July 2002 | Runtime: 72 min. | 3,06 GB (DVD5)

One of the most distinctive of all pianists, Erroll Garner proved that it was possible to be a sophisticated player without knowing how to read music, that a creative jazz musician can be very popular without watering down his music, and that it is possible to remain an enthusiastic player without changing one's style once it is formed. A brilliant virtuoso who sounded unlike anyone else, on medium tempo pieces, Erroll Garner often stated the beat with his left hand like a rhythm guitar while his right played chords slightly behind the beat, creating a memorable effect.

Sophisticated Lady Jazz Quartet - Sophisticated Lady (2014)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 66:38 min | 161 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Yarlung

Sophisticated Lady’s debut album for Yarlung Records is an elegant stew of tradition-based jazz infused with some modern spice, a tasty dish sure to please the most discerning of connoisseurs. Working through a studio set of original pieces and classics, all recorded in one take, the quartet clearly demonstrates there is life in tradition yet. Innovation doesn’t have to be far out, strange, outre. Such innovation can sound “go-o-o-od,” very good.

Kayo - Manhattan Sunset (2014)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 62:04 min | 146 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: MP Records

Manhattan Sunset, the sixth studio album from pianist Kayo Hiraki, highlights a seasoned player drawing upon her various influences and varied interests within jazz. From the opener, 59th Street Station B Line, an angular her composition reminiscent of Monk's medium-tempo bop, to Midday Sun Shower, with its funky &sweet, contemporary jazz stylings, the album ferries listeners through a pleasantly diverse array of genres within the jazz idiom. Tarte Aux Fraises and Runaway Thought (sound track from the film 'Birth Day'), both jazz waltzes, feature strong trio work, as bassist Patrick O'Leary and drummer Eric Halvorson lend stimulating support to Kayo's piano solos as they build steam.

Lou Rawls - Greatest Hits
EAC+LOG+CUE | FLAC: 362 MB | Full Artwork: 31 MB | 5% Recovery Info
Label/Cat#: Repertoire Rec. # REP 4244-WZ | Country/Year: Germany 1992
Genre: Jazz, Funk & Soul | Style: Smooth Jazz, Soul, Easy Listening

From gospel and early R&B to soul and jazz to blues and straight-up pop, Lou Rawls was a consummate master of African-American vocal music whose versatility helped him adapt to the changing musical times over and over again while always remaining unmistakably himself. Blessed with a four-octave vocal range, Rawls' smooth, classy elegance -- sort of a cross between Sam Cooke and Nat King Cole -- permeated nearly everything he sang, yet the fire of his early gospel days was never too far from the surface...

Guitarist Ivan Joseph Jones, better known as Boogaloo Joe Jones, was a soul-jazz artist whose brand of cool, funky music can be heard on Prestige releases from the late 1960s and early `70s. The newly reissued RIGHT ON BROTHER (1970) will give contemporary listeners a healthy dose of Jones's groovy brew. And fans of Grant Green, Kenny Burrell, and Wes Montgomery will know what to expect from Jones's blend of hard bop and R&B. Support from saxophonist Rusty Bryant and drummer Bernard Purdie keeps the groove solid, while Jones demonstrates his feel-good bluesy skills on the fretboard.

Jimmy McGriff - Soul Sugar & Groove Grease (1971) {2007 Groove Hut Records Remaster}

Jazz / Soul Jazz / Jazz Funk / Organ Hammond B-3

The Sonny Lester-produced Soul Sugar looms large in Jimmy McGriff's vast catalog -- while it's a fool's errand to pick the organist's absolute funkiest recording, this one demands serious consideration. Without personnel credits, it's impossible to know who's backing McGriff here, but the rhythm section is nonetheless superb -- cuts like "Dig on It" (later sampled by A Tribe Called Quest), "Fat Cakes," and "The Now Thing" rival the Meters for sheer soulfulness. The covers are no less impressive -- while renditions of James Brown's "Ain't It Funky Now," Stevie Wonder's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered," and Aretha Franklin's "Spirit in the Dark" remain true to the spirit of the original recordings, the ingenious arrangements also allow McGriff and his band panoramic stretches of space to explore.

Tony Williams - Wilderness (1996) {Ark 21}
EAC 1.0b3 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 200dpi | 367MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Jazz, Fusion

One of drummer Tony Williams' final studio projects, this adventurous effort alternates selections by an all-star quintet (which includes tenor saxophonist Michael Brecker, guitarist Pat Metheny, pianist Herbie Hancock and bassist Stanley Clarke) with string orchestra tracks (usually using the rhythm section). Williams wrote most of the music (there is one song apiece from Metheny and Clarke), and despite the general unpredictability of the music (which ranges from melancholy to fiery), there is a surprising unity throughout the CD.
