Dave Grusin - Migration (1989) {GRP}
EAC 0.99pb4 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Scans 200dpi | 370MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Fusion, Smooth Jazz, Soundtrack

On this diverse and generally interesting CD, keyboardist/composer Dave Grusin performs a five-song suite from his soundtrack of The Milagro Beanfield War along with selections by Harvey Mason, his brother Don Grusin, Hugh Masekela, Marcus Miller and himself. Other than the suite (which has a string section), the music is mostly played by smaller groups, with Branford Marsalis on tenor and soprano a major asset on three songs and flugelhornist Hugh Masekela taking a solo on his own "Polina."

Excellent album from Germany's perennial jazz / fusion kings. All tracks are performed beautifully, with top notch sound production and Doldinger's exquisite saxophone melodies. Standout tracks are "Lunatic Dancing" and "Wanderlust." Definitely a shining album by these excellent musicians.

VA - L'Histoire Du Piano Jazz: Box Set 25 CDs (2009)
Swing, Ragtime, Mainstream Jazz, Cool Jazz, Bop, Classic Jazz | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 4,45 Gb | Full Scans (jpg) - 147 Mb
Label: Le Chant du Monde | Release Year: 2009

Once in a while, an album comes along to take your breath away. That is certainly the case with this boxed set, which contains no fewer than 25 CDs tracing the history of jazz piano from early 1899 to the end of 1958. Several years ago, the same record company issued a set ten CDs covering some of the same ground, but this expanded version is even more amazing.

John McLaughlin - After The Rain (1995) {Verve}
EAC rip (secure mode) | FLAC (tracks)+CUE+LOG -> 382 Mb | MP3 @320 -> 137 Mb
Full Artwork @ 300 dpi (png) -> 53 Mb | 5% repair rar

In the early '70s John McLaughlin was one-third of the supergroup Lifetime with drummer Tony Williams and organist Larry Young. This particular CD from 1994 matches him with drummer Elvin Jones and organist Joey DeFrancesco, but the music has little in common with Lifetime. Instead many of the tunes can be considered to be tributes to John Coltrane; Jones's participation certainly reinforces that connection.

John Lee & Gerry Brown - Still Can't Say Enough (1976) {2013 Japanese BNLA Series 24-bit Remaster}

Great work from John Lee and Gerry Brown – a pair of fusion stalwarts who added key help to a number of classic 70s sessions for other artists – and got to make a rare few albums like this on their own! Lee's on bass and Brown's on drums, and the pair are in perfect time throughout – working with Skip Drinkwater production, which helps them find even more focus than before, and shake off some of the more jamming aspects of their rock-fusion performances with others – a move that helps them come up with a wonderfully soulful sound in the process – very much in the best Drinkwater soul jazz style of the time!

Ernst Reijseger, Harmen Fraanje & Mola Sylla - Count Till Zen (2015)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 50:10 min | 115 MB
Genre: Jazz, World Fusion | Label: Winter & Winter

Reijseger, Fraanje, Sylla, who understand each other blindly, form a unity in which musical equality goes without saying. This trio convinces by the energy of 'unplugged' music and the self-developed music cosmos with its own compositions, between fascinating vocal-melodies, high energy grooves and harmonies - with a rather calm, lyrical general mood. Each song of the album tells a story: In 'Perhaps' Mola Sylla sings about Dakar, the capital of his homeland Senegal.

VA - From Latin to Jazz Dance Volume 1-5 (2003) 5 CD
EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 1.7 Gb | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 717 Mb | Scans included
Genre: Latin Jazz, Samba Jazz, Bossa Nova | Time: 04:47:09

This is series of seriously intoxicating Latin and American Bossa-Samba-Jazz sounds! It all began in the '50s when composer Antonio Carlos Jobim, inspired by West Coast Jazz, helped to form a new music that blended together gentle Brazilian Samba rhythms and melodies with cool-toned improvising. These compilations contain the results of Jobim's influential musical experiment, as they feature a myriad of artists serving up a cocktail blend of rare original Brazilian and American Bossa Nova and Jazz from the 60's. Each volume comes complete with a different sexy vixen on each of the covers...and we do mean SEXY! Includes 80 tracks featuring classic performances by Les McCann, Mongo Santamaria, Cal Tjader, The Champs, The Hi-Lo's Lalo Schifrin, Nina Simone, Art Blakey, Xavier Cugat & His Orhcestra, Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 and many more.

Cecilie Noer - Mindwhisper (2014)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 11 Tracks | 42:25 | 101 MB
Genre: Jazz, Vocal Jazz, Pop, Folk | Label: Oje-Blik

Cecilie Noer is a new singer/songwriter from Denmark and has just released her new, and first, album Mindwhisper. The texture of the music is very simple and the artistic expression is carried only by a Spanish guitar, a cahun and a very special voice spiced up with the sound of piano. The music is inviting the listener into a universe – into a reflection of life and into a reflections of the dreams, we have, “that don’t go away, but stay ever in our minds”

Mike Mainieri - An American Diary (1995)
EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 413 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 185 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included
Genre: Fusion, Post-Bop, Vibraphone Jazz | Label: NYC Records | # NYC 6015-2 | Time: 01:07:04

In addition to a few group originals, vibraphonist Mike Mainieri performs some unusual pieces with his quartet (Joe Lovano on tenor, soprano, and alto clarinet; bassist Eddie Gomez; and drummer Peter Erskine) on this CD, including two folk songs and selections by Leonard Bernstein ("Somewhere"), Frank Zappa ("King Kong"), Aaron Copland ("Piano Sonata"), Roger Sessions ("Piano Sonata No. 1"), and Samuel Barber ("Overture to the School for Scandal"). The pianoless quartet (which displays a lot of versatility by Joe Lovano) turns all of the music into creative jazz. The most interesting aspect to this thought-provoking disc is how difficult it is to tell which compositions are taken from classical music and which are new. There is a surprising unity to the potentially difficult material; the performances on the rather moody outing reward repeated listenings.

Mohamed Abozekry - Ring Road (2015)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 81:11 min | 189 MB
Genre: Ethnic Jazz, World Fusion | Label: Jazz Village

This Egyptian artist who now lives in France juggles with the musical genres of his eastern birthplace, which his oud takes to fresh heights, breathing into them the inventiveness of jazz and the energy of rock. Abozekry makes the oriental lute sing, introducing a sense of groove as well as flamenco and Latino hints. Ring Road is a fascinating collection in which his love for John Coltrane and Astor Piazzolla lies just under the surface, as well as his desire to nudge tradition towards horizons suffused with sound and the continual murmuring of the world.

Dino Saluzzi - Navidad De Los Andes (2011) {ECM 2204}
EAC 1.0b3 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 300dpi | 331MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Avant-Garde Jazz, Wold Fusion

If there is an actual sonic intersection between the natural world and music, then Navidad de los Andes, the collaborative recording between master bandoneonist and composer Dino Saluzzi, his younger brother, saxophonist Felix Saluzzi, and German cellist Anja Lechner has perhaps found it. The brothers have been playing music together for over 60 years; Lechner has been working with the elder Saluzzi since Kultrum in the mid-'90s. Felix and Lechner were both featured soloists on Saluzzi's 2009 orchestral recording El Encuentro.
