Features SHM-CD format and the latest 24bit 192kHz remastering. Funky genius from Lou Donaldson – one of his first funky albums for Blue Note, and a real killer all the way through! The album has a great young group working with Lou – players that include Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Lonnie Smith on organ, Leo Morris (aka Idris Muhammed) on drums, and George Benson on guitar – grooving with that really soulful early sound of his! The album has that hard Lou Donaldson funky sound that still sounds fantastic today – and titles include "Dapper Dan", "Midnight Creeper", "Bag of Jewels", and "Love Power".

George Benson - Big Boss Band Featuring The Count Basie Orchestra (1990)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 10 Tracks | 41:21 | 108 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Warner Bros.

This project had its genesis back in 1983 with a Benson promise to Count Basie that he would record an album in his style, a promise partially fulfilled the following year with 20/20's "Beyond the Sea." Focusing on standards that steer commendably clear from tunes normally associated with Basie, Benson takes on the dual challenge of big-band singer and lead guitarist and succeeds with authority in both roles. The robust playing of the Basie band under Frank Foster poses absolutely no problems for Benson's muscular guitar, for he punches out the notes and octaves in irresistibly swinging fashion (for prime mature Benson, check out "Basie's Bag")...

Pat Metheny - Secret Story (1992)
EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 524 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 252 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included
Genre: Crossover Jazz, World Fusion, Ethnic Jazz, Guitar Jazz | Label: Geffen | # GED 24468, GEFD 24468 | Time: 01:16:26

Secret Story is among the more provocative recordings in Pat Metheny's oeuvre. Combining the relaxed groove of the early Pat Metheny Group recordings, it is full of odd sounds, exotic instrumentation, and the participation of members of the London Orchestra conducted by Jeremy Lubbock. Along with regular group members -- bassist Steve Rodby, drummer Paul Wertico, percussionist Naná Vasconcelos, pianist-keyboardist Lyle Mays -- numerous guests adorn these tracks as well: bassists Charlie Haden and Will Lee, percussionist Armando Marcal, vocalist Mark Ledford, jazz harmonica legend Toots Thielmans, Gil Goldstein, and Pat's brother Mike Metheny. But what's most notable is that none of these players are constants, as this is most certainly a Metheny solo effort: Secret Story is his own song, so to speak. His acoustic and electric guitars are augmented by synthesizers and samplers, and no matter how lush these proceedings get, they are never overwhelmed by production.

Barbra Streisand - The Third Album (1964) [1993, Remastered Reissue]

Label: Columbia / Sony Music Entertainment Inc. (USA) | Released: 1993, October, 12

The Third Album is the title of Barbra Streisand's third solo studio album which was released in February 1964. After the success of Streisand's previous two albums, The Barbra Streisand Album and The Second Barbra Streisand Album, it was expected that The Third Album would do as well. The album turned out to be very successful; it reached #5 on Billboard's Pop Albums Chart and was certified Gold by the RIAA. The photograph on the album cover was taken by Roddy McDowall when Streisand was performing on The Judy Garland Show in October 1963. In 1979, singer and songwriter Paul Jabara released The Third Album on Casablanca Records and paid homage to Streisand's Third Album cover.

VA - Verve Remixed

VA - Verve Remixed (2002)
MP3 CBR 320kbps | RAR | 156mb
Genre: jazz, soul, R&B, hip-hop, electronica, dance, house

Verve Remixed is the first compilation Verve Records did for people to explore the multitracks of their catalog to make brand new versions/mixes of songs. Some of the artists handling this project include MJ Cole, King Britt, Masters At Work, The Thievery Corporation, and Rae & Christian. This resulted in a number of Remixed and Unmixed volumes, with Unmixed featuring the songs on the remixed discs in their original forms. This was created years before Verve closed down as a label, maybe it's time for them to open.

Sonny Rollins - The Bridge (1962) {2003 Bluebird Remaster}
EAC rip (secure mode) | FLAC (tracks)+CUE+LOG -> 255 Mb | MP3 @320 -> 97 Mb
Full Artwork @ 600 dpi (jpg) -> 110 Mb | 5% repair rar
© 2003 Bluebird / BMG Music | 82876-52472-2
Jazz / Hard Bop / Saxophone

Tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins' first recording after ending a surprising three-year retirement found the great saxophonist sounding very similar to how he had played in 1959, although he would soon start investigating freer forms. In a pianoless quartet with guitarist Jim Hall, bassist Bob Cranshaw, and drummer Ben Riley, Rollins explores four standards (including "Without a Song" and "God Bless the Child") plus two fiery originals, highlighted by the title cut. The interplay between Rollins and Hall is consistently impressive, making this set a near-classic and a very successful comeback.
