Passport - Heavy Nights (1986)
EAC Rip | FLAC: Tracks+Cue+Log | 278 Mb | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 96 Mb | Scans | Time: 40:32
Genre: Jazz Rock, Fusion | Label: WEA Musik GmbH | Cat.№: 242006-2

"Heavy Nights" finds Passport founder and veteran sax man Klaus Doldinger in rare form. On this offering from 1986, the veteran sax player delves into the world of pop-jazz. Although, given his vast palette and the different settings here, it would be a mistake to simply call Heavy Nights a pop-jazz record. Doldinger's tastes have always been eclectic and he brings his own unique jazz contributions to the table. Furthermore, he possesses that rare ability to produce jazz that is accessible without having to sacrifice substance in the process. Whatever you chose to call it, Heavy Nights is just great music. The songs here range from the playful "Bahia Praia" to the upbeat, big-band feel of "It's Magic."

Pat Metheny Group - The Way Up - Live (2006)
DVD9 | VIDEO_TS | MPEG-2 Video, PAL 16:9 (720x576), 25fps, 10125kbps | DD 5.1, 448kbps; DTS 5.1, 536kbps; LPCM 2.0 | 91min | 6350Mb
Jazz | Eagle EREDV596 | rec: 2004 | covers

Pat Metheny fans know by now what to expect from a recorded performance by the guitarist and his group, and it's all here on The Way Up – Live: superb, versatile musicianship, mixing virtuoso soloing with telepathic ensemble interplay and sustained moments of majestic passion and intensity; intricate rhythms and time signatures; sweeping textures punctuated by some memorable melodic passages; and, from a purely technical standpoint, superior sound and visuals. Yet The Way Up is a bit different, and a good deal more challenging.

Yutaka Yokokura - Yutaka (1988) {GRP}
EAC 0.99pb5 | FLAC Image | Cue+Log | Full Scans 300dpi | 283MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Fusion, World Fusion

"A fine keyboardist who also plays koto, Yutaka Yokokura has often mixed in his Japanese heritage with his love for Brazilian music. He took classical piano lessons from the age of four, listened to pop music of the era, and at the age of 15 in the mid-'60s, he became attracted to Brazilian music. Soon Yokohura was leading his own group, mostly playing Brazilian material that was influenced by Sergio Mendes. In 1972 Yokohura moved to the U.S. to attend Cal State Long Beach. He performed with Hiroshima during 1975-78, which served ironically as an opportunity for the keyboardist to be introduced to his own Japanese culture.

Frank Zappa - Make A Jazz Noise Here (1991) [2CD] {1995 Ryko Remaster Complete Series}
EAC rip (secure mode) | FLAC (tracks)+CUE+LOG -> 924 Mb | MP3 @320 -> 326 Mb
Full Artwork @ 600 dpi (png) -> 250 Mb | 5% repair rar | Ryko Zappa catalog
© 1995 Rykodisc / The Zappa Family Trust | RCD 10555/56
Rock / Experimental Rock / Jazz Rock / Art Rock

Official Release #57. The third and final live album put together from recordings of Frank Zappa's 1988 concerts, the two-CD set Make a Jazz Noise Here focuses on the composer's instrumental pieces -- which are not necessarily jazzy, by the way. As for the three vocal tracks included ("Stinkfoot," "Stevie's Spanking," and "Advance Romance"), they all feature interesting solos. The set presents old favorites, like the medley "Let's Make the Water Turn Black"/"Harry, You're a Beast," "King Kong," and "The Black Page." They are well-performed, but considering the number of versions of each of them available on other recordings, they hardly constitute the main interest of this album.

Danilo Perez - Central Avenue (1998) {Impulse}
EAC 0.99pb5 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 300dpi | 306MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Latin Jazz, Post-Bop, Afrocubism, Fusion

Danilo Perez has invited us to step onto Central Avenue to re-examine his musical heritage. His fourth album, named for the main boulevard in his native Panama City, Panama, serves up a mix of blues, folk singing and nostalgia. Perez's fresh, liberating piano reinterprets such jazz standards as Billy Strayhorn's "Lush Life" and John Coltrane's "Impressions" by using new combinations of rhythms, tempos and instruments that ultimately spotlight his technique.

Genre: Jazz, Funk, Fusion | Label: Mullennium Records | Cat.№: MUCD 1401

The new album explores my favourite musical worlds from Soul to Jazz, Fusion to R&B - but Funk is the red line that holds it all together. This is where I come from and the reason I started making music! Funky Bass-In-Your-Face music with elements of Jazz, Soul, R&B.

Danilo Perez - The Journey (1994) {Novus}
EAC 0.95b4 | FLAC tracks | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 300dpi | 369MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Latin Jazz, Post-Bop, Afrocubism, Fusion

Pianist Danilo Perez's second recording as a leader is a real gem. Divided into "Time Past" and "Time Present," Perez performs music utilizing Latin and Afro-Cuban rhythms, complex time signatures, original themes, the influence of bop, and his own very strong technique. The personnel and instrumentation changes from song to song, ranging from a septet with both George Garzone and David Sanchez on saxophones (along with two percussionists playing a wide variety of exotic instruments) to a conventional trio, a duet with drummer Ignacio Berroa, and a pair of solo piano pieces. Bassist Larry Grenadier plays very well, always sounding confident during the very tricky music, while Perez displays a highly original yet logical style.

In the seventies the piano was the star instrument in the Jazz. The sax made its own in the eighties as the guitar in the nineties . In this sense Joe Sample pianism revealed such kind of freshness interpretative and original pages that made of him one of the top exponents in that moment and still today.

Shankar / Garbarek / Hussain / Gurtu - Song For Everyone (1985) {ECM 1286}
EAC 0.99pb4 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 600dpi | 270MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Ethnic Fusion

Song For Everyone heralds the return of the groove in Shankar's East-West-minded music, with former Shakti colleague Zakir Hussain on tabla, Trilok Gurtu on percussion, and Shankar's own manipulation of a drum machine tending to the rhythms. The result is a brighter, more outgoing record than its predecessor Vision, veering between Western acoustic and electric grooves and the complex beats churned out by the tabla. Jan Garbarek again shines beams of light on soprano and tenor, engaging Shankar's 10-string double-necked electric violin in some complex interplay on the title track.
