Stefano Bollani - Joy In Spite Of Everything (2014) {ECM 2360}
EAC 1.0b3 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 300dpi | 409MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Jazz, Post-Bop

With Joy in Spite of Everything - an album of new compositions by the pianist for a trans-Atlantic quintet – Bollani has made his most beautifully textured and infectiously lyrical statement yet. He recorded these nine pieces at New York City’s Avatar Studios with the Danish rhythm section from his Stone in the Water trio – bassist Jesper Bodilsen and drummer Morten Lund plus two prominent American players and ECM intimates: guitarist Bill Frisell and saxophonist Mark Turner. As its title reflects, Joy in Spite of Everything brims with an indefatigable lightness of spirit despite the inevitable shadows of life.

Blood , Sweat & Tears - Spinning Wheel (2007)
Video: NTSC, MPEG-2 at 5 120 Kbps, 720 x 480 at 29.970 fps | Audio: AC-3 2 channels at 192 Kbps, 48.0 KHz
Genre: Jazz Rock | Label: Cherry Red | Copy: Untouched | Release Date: 30 April 2007 | Runtime: 58 min. | 2,46 GB (DVD5)

No American rock group ever started with as much daring or musical promise as Blood, Sweat & Tears, or realized their potential more fully and then blew it all as quickly. From their origins as a jazz-rock experiment that wowed critics and listeners, they went on in a somewhat more pop vein to sell almost six million records in three years, but ended up being dropped by their record label four years after that. Blood, Sweat & Tears started as an idea conceived by Al Kooper in July of 1967.

Bobby McFerrin - Live In Montreal (2005)
Video: NTSC, MPEG-2 at 6 800 Kbps, 720 x 480 at 29.970 fps | Audio: AC-3 6ch. at 448 Kbps, PCM 2ch. at 1 536 Kbps
Genre: Vocal Jazz | Label: Universal | Copy: Untouched | Release Date: 7 Nov 2005 | Runtime: 105 min. | 6,64 GB (DVD9)

Since a cappella pioneer Bobby McFerrin singlehandedly gave the vocal arts a hand up to a whole new level of possibilities in the 1980s with his iconic hit "Don't Worry, Be Happy," we have looked at him and listened to him with awe and gratitude. Experiencing him perform live several times only increased these feelings exponentially, and we had the feeling that everyone in the audience was on exactly the same page.

Lars Danielsson - Liberetto II (2014)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 50:11 min | 117 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: ACT Music

When soul mates and perfectly matched musicians find one another, they are well advised to stick together. "Liberetto II" by the exceptional Swedish bassist and cellist Lars Danielsson is the living proof. Three years ago he found a quartet with the former e.s.t. drummer Magnus Öström, the British guitarist John Paricelli and most of all as a new dream team duo with Armenian pianist Tigran.

Stefano Bollani - Joy in Spite of Everything (2014)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 75:51 min | 175 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: ECM

Stefano Bollani is an artist of ebullient virtuosity, with uncommon sensitivity and range. The Italian pianist has proved to be at home on ECM improvising solo or leading a trio, as well as engaging in duos with Enrico Rava, Chick Corea and Brazilian bandolim player Hamilton de Holanda. With Joy in Spite of Everything - an album of new compositions by the pianist for a trans-Atlantic quintet - Bollani has made his most beautifully textured and infectiously lyrical statement yet.

Stan Levey - Plays The Composition Of Cooper, Holman and Guiffre (1954) {2014 Japanese Bethlehem Album Collection 1000}
EAC rip (secure mode) | FLAC (tracks)+CUE+LOG -> 133 Mb | MP3 @320 -> 55 Mb
Full Artwork @ 600 dpi (png) -> 198 Mb | 5% repair rar
© 2014 Solid Records / Bethlehem | CDSOL-6123 (BCP-1017)
Jazz / Bop / Cool

The first album ever from drummer Stan Levey, but a set that already shows his mighty talents as a leader! Stan wisely chose some great songs to work with here – penned by west coast highlights Jimmy Giuffre, Bob Cooper, and Bill Holman – and taken into a small combo mode that really shakes the tunes free of any of the larger Kenton-esque qualities of the composers. Giuffre is on the record – playing baritone in the sextet along with Zoot Sims on tenor, Conte Candoli on trumpet, Claude Williamson on piano, and Max Bennett on bass – about as great of a Bethlehem lineup as you could hope for at the time. Sims brings in a really rich sense of soul tot he record – and titles include "Drum Sticks", "Lightnin' Bug", "Exaktamo", and "Extraversion".

Stephane Grappelli - At the Winery (1980)
Jazz, Swing | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 47 min | 109 MB
Label: Concord Records | Rel: 1980

Violinist Stephane Grappelli plays his usual repertoire (standards ranging from Stevie Wonder's "You Are the Sunshine of My Life" to "Chicago" and the Reinhardt-associated piece "Minor Swing") in a quartet with the guitars of John Etheridge and Martin Taylor and bassist Jack Sewing. The music, although a bit predictable, is enjoyable, for Grappelli has never lost his enthusiasm for playing swinging jazz. He performs "Let's Fall in Love" and "Love for Sale" as if he had just discovered those songs.

Steve Kaldestad & The Mike LeDonne Trio - Straight Up (2014)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 44:56 min | 103 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Cellar Live Records

The list of those jazz musicians past and present who play(ed) the tenor saxophone is long and varied. Those who were true innovators, and others who were great or near great, is not so long but nevertheless impressive. Trying to make the cut into either category is a daunting task. Steve Kalestad, who has a nice firm tone and easy manner will not fall into either, but that does not mean this album entitled Straight Up is not enjoyable or entertaining.

Jazz / Modern Jazz / Progressive Jazz / Trio

Phronesis are a dynamic trio who need little introduction. Their fourth album, Walking Dark, is the highly anticipated follow-up to the acclaimed Alive [Edition EDN1021], which was voted Jazz Album of the Year by both Jazzwise and MOJO magazines in 2010. Since the success of this release, the band has toured widely across Europe and North America, earning consistent praise for their vibrant live performances. Formed by Danish bass player Jasper Høiby in 2005, the energy and individuality of Phronesis comes from an extraordinary democracy of expression and almost telepathic empathy between the musicians - three of the finest players on the European jazz scene today.
