Bob Dorough - Songs of Love (1987)
Vocal Jazz | MP3 320 kbps CBR | Artwork | 64 min | 157 MB
Label:Orange Blue | Rel: 1987

Bob Dorough has often been described as an acquired taste, certainly not shared by everyone. In Will Friedwald’s study Jazz Singing, he wrote: “Anyone who’s ever taken a singing lesson resents the hell out of Bob Dorough for having the nerve to pass himself off as a vocalist.” On the other hand, Gary Giddins, in one of his Weatherbird columns for the Village Voice, had the following perspective on Dorough: “He can interpret a lyric as though it were an anecdote. When he goes into bopping swingers, he seems almost indifferent to how much energy he can generate. The whole effect has freaked many, and he has endured some of the most scathing reviews I’ve ever read.”

Fela Kuti - Live In Detroit 1986 (2012) [3CD] {Knitting Factory Records}
EAC rip (secure mode) | FLAC (tracks)+CUE+LOG -> 1.04 Gb | MP3 @320 -> 342 Mb
Full Artwork @ 300 dpi (jpg) -> 18 Mb | 5% repair rar
© 2012 Knitting Factory Records | KFR 1028
Jazz / Afro Beat / Afro Pop / Jazz Funk / World Fusion

In its own way, this is a kind of grail; a live recording by the great Fela Kuti captured live mere months after his release from prison in 1986. After serving two years on a trumped-up charge of "currency trafficking," he was reluctantly released by the Nigerian government in April due to considerable pressure by Amnesty International. This show took place at Detroit's historic Fox Theater in November. The recording is the first release of "new" Fela material in nearly 20 years. The three CDs clock in at a bit under two-and-a-half hours -- the show could have easily fit on two discs -- and an audience recording by Bob Tegan.

Charlie Wood - New Souvenirs (2014)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 50:32 min | 121 MB
Genre: Vocal Jazz | Label: Perdido Records

Charlie Wood’s first ever UK studio album ‘New Souvenirs’ was released 3 November 2014 on Perdido Records. Featuring 12 brand new, self-penned tracks, the album is his strongest and most personal so far. The singer / pianist has crafted an eclectic set of songs that reflect his own upbringing in Memphis, where he was steeped in jazz, blues and R&B soul – and where he was recently honoured with a Brass Note on Beale Street bearing his name, the Memphis music equivalent of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Duke Pearson - On Green Dolphin Street (2014)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 84:40 min | 196 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Kendal

Duke Pearson was an accomplished, lyrical, and logical — if rather cautious — pianist who played a big part in shaping the Blue Note label's hard bop direction in the 1960s as a producer. He will probably be best remembered for writing several attractive, catchy pieces, the most memorable being the moody "Cristo Redentor" for Donald Byrd, "Sweet Honey Bee" for himself and Lee Morgan, and "Jeannine," which has become a much-covered jazz standard.

MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 18 Tracks | 66:60 | 148 MB
Genre: Jazz, Vocal Jazz | Label: Lone Hill Jazz

Billed as a Jazz at the Philharmonic performance, this concert consists of two intimate sets: the first showcases Roy Eldridge leading an All Star sextet, while the second part of the concert is the long Ella Fitzgerald set, with just a rhythm section. Highlights include her powerful renditions of such classics as "Angel Eyes", "Lullaby of Birdland" and "Love for Sale".

Jim Hall - Magic Meeting (2004)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 7 Tracks | 1:04:06 | 145,70 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: ArtistShare

Jim Hall has continued to explore new possibilities as a performer and composer late in his career, refusing to coast on his past successes. This live CD was recorded over a series of several nights at the Village Vanguard in the spring of 2004, with longtime collaborators Scott Colley on bass and drummer Lewis Nash (though they have never recorded as a trio). The leader contributed three originals, including the adventurous opener "Bent Blue," "Canto Neruda" (post-bop with a Mexican-like vamp by Hall) which showcases Colley to good effect, along with "Furnished Flats," a seemingly loping theme that is full of sudden twists...

Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey - Worker (2014)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 40:17 min | 101 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: The Royal Potato Family

While navigating 20 years, 16 members, 25 albums, and countless tours around the world, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey has become an institution in modern music. Defined by evolution and change, the band has invented its own language, one that permeates JFJO s sound regardless of configuration. Although there is no Jacob or Fred, the last 20 years have indeed been a Jazz Odyssey.

MP3 320 kbps CBR | 41:10 min | 101 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Tru Thoughts

Measures is the second album from the Nostalgia 77 & The Monster guise, bringing a flavoursome take on instrumental jazz. The collection of songs sees Ben Lamdin's long time collaborator, bass player and arranger Riaan Vosloo stepping to the fore, bringing six original compositions. The album also contains nods to the two dominant influences on this group over the years, in renditions of Sun Ra''s otherworldly An Island In The Sun and British firebrand (and previous Nostalgia 77 collaborator) Keith Tippett's Thoughts To Geoff.

John Zorn - Transmigration Of The Magus (2014) {Tzadik Archival Series}
EAC rip (secure mode) | FLAC (tracks)+CUE+LOG -> 193 Mb | MP3 @320 -> 106 Mb | Artwork | 5% repair rar
© 2014 Tzadik | Archival Series | TZ 8324
Jazz / Experimental / Modern Creative / International

Drawing inspiration from various Gnostic philosophies of the Nag Hammadi library, Transmigration of the Magus is a musical evocation of the mystical journey of the soul through the bardo. Lyrical and tender, the music has a lush orchestral sweep and features Bill Frisell and John Medeski reveling within the magical sonorities of vibraphones, bells and harps. Created to help the passing of Zorn’s dear friend Lou Reed through the bardo realms and released on the one year anniversary of his passing, Transmigration of the Magus is a memorial tribute to one of Zorn’s musical mentors and is one of his most touching and emotional projects—truly music of the angels.

Tim Cunningham - Right Turn Only (1996)
Jazz | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 52 min | 120 MB
Label: Atlantic | Rel: 1996

Tim Cunningham (heard on alto and soprano) shows off some impressive playing chops along with the influence of Grover Washington, Jr., but he is heard primarily in rather commercial settings. While the solos are generally good, the tunes are mundane, the rhythms sound like they are set on automatic pilot, the background vocals are rather insipid, and the overall effect is forgettable. Cunningham is capable of better, but this program was clearly designed with the hope of getting radio airplay, and it is quite dated.
