Easy Listening, Instrumental, Soul, World / Label: Decca Phase 4 PFS 4162 / Filesonic, Fileserve, Depositfiles

Album released in Spain in 1970 by Columbia Decca Phase 4 Stereo. This recording is a true spectacle performed by jazz trumpeter Kenny Baker English (1921-1999) and accompanied by the orchestra of the famed British director Roland Shaw. Of his vast and splendid career can mention that Baker performed alongside world-class artists as Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Tony Bennett and even The Beatles, as well as several soundtracks of the films of James Bond. From him it was said that 'he was for jazz what the Rolling Stones to rock'. His demise marked the end of an era of global trumpeters, who were able to reach the virtuosity on the trumpet, making a brilliant capacity for imagination and expression, we have not come to enjoy since.

Wolfgang Muthspiel - whom The New Yorker has called "a shining light" among today's jazz guitarists - made his ECM leader debut in 2014 with the trio disc Driftwood, featuring him alongside two longtime colleagues, bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Brian Blade. For his follow-up - 'Rising Grace', which is released on CD and 180g vinyl - the Austrian guitarist has convened a very special quintet, adding jazz luminary Brad Mehldau on piano and the outstanding young trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire to the subtly virtuosic Grenadier/Blade rhythm section.

Strictly judging from the lyrical sentiment of his recordings, it might be wise not to make Chicago guitarist Byther Smith angry. Smitty's uncompromising songs are filled with threats of violence and ominous menace (the way blues used to be before the age of political correctness), sometimes to the point where his words don't even rhyme. They don't have to, either – you're transfixed by the sheer intensity of his music.

Genre: Jazz, Post-Bop

Already a well-established name on the European jazz scene, at the end of 1979 came the decisive meeting in Rome with the trumpet player Chet Baker. Riccardo Del Fra played alongside Chet for about nine years both in Europe and Japan on tours, for the radio and for the television; a collaboration which led to the recording of twelve albums, videos (Live in London at the Ronnie Scott) and the movie Chet s Romance directed by Bertrand Fevre. Chet's death in 1988 curtailed their partnership, but 25 years later the Marciac festival commissioned Del Fra to lead an ambitious project uniting a jazz quintet with a classical orchestra to play tunes associated with the doomed trumpeter.

Genre: Jazz, Fusion

Exceptional balladesque album by the great darktoned trumpeter and his excellent young Polish quartet. There is a timeless feel to 'Soul of Things' that relates to Stanko's roots as a player. The forward-looking musician is also looking back here, and re-connecting with early influences. He triggers memories of his first heroes - memories of Miles, memories of Chet Baker - in his lonesome, soulful soliloquies.

Genre: Jazz, Free Jazz | Label: Motema

Ginger Baker is a true music pioneer, known as the pioneering and innovative drummers of the 60s supergroup Cream (alongside Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce) and as one of the most colorful personalities of the last fifty years of music history. Inspired by African rhythms, such as Tony Allen, with whom he has recorded with Fela Kuti in the 70's, and the drumming of jazz heroes like Art Blakey, Max Roach and Elvin Jones, put Ginger's unique percussion style the foundation for a totally new sound in rock.
