This sequel to the 2003 tribute Word of Mouth Revisited showcases the compositions and arrangements of the legendary bassist Jaco Pastorius. It features Pastorius-influenced bassists, including Victor Wooten, Mark Egan, Gerald Veasley, and Marcus Miller, with a number of Pastorius' ex-sidemen, from trumpeters Randy Brecker and steel drummer Othello Molineaux to drummer Peter Erskine. Peter Graves–a bandmate of the flashy bassist when they both lived in Florida–leads this big band and sticks close to Pastorius' original conceptions, as evidenced by the Latin-tinged "Las Olas," guest-starring the Cuban bass giant Israel "Cachao" Lopez.

Jaco Pastorius at the height of his powers – working here on a set of smoking live recordings that feature both the Word Of Mouth Sextet, and a larger big band! The core combo features Pastorius on some really incredible bass – that re-worked approach to the electric instrument in jazz that went onto inform many generations of players – matched with the core energy of Randy Brecker on trumpet, Bob Mintzer on tenor and soprano sax, Peter Erskine on drums, Don Alias on percussion, and the surprising addition of Othello Moineaux on steel drums – which makes for some very interesting moments. Toots Theielmans joins the sextet at one point – and the larger group features Jon Faddis on trumpet, Wayne Andre on trombone, and Mari Cruz on tenor and soprano sax. Titles include "Reza", "Giant Steps", "Twins", "Eleven", "Okonkole Y Trompa", and "Amerika".

Recorded live at Budokan, Tokyo, September 1st 1982, Osaka Festival Hall, Osaka, September 4th 1982, Yokohama Stadium, Yokohama, September 5th 1982. I almost rated this recording a 4 because of the 20+ year old recording technology. But then I listened more seriously and was truly taken back with the fun roller coaster ride that Jaco and his 20 piece band took me on. With players like Don Alias on Percussion, Randy Brecker on Trumpet, Peter Erskine playing smoking drums and too many other heavyweights to mention I was taken to a really good place. From Jaco's incredible playing to Erskine, Brecker, french horns, tuba etc. this album goes where very few go even today. All I can say is buy it and hold on to your seat!

Genre: Jazz, Big Band | Label: Summit Records

Veteran trombonist and big band leader John Fedchock, has had a history of showcasing some of the finest contemporary ensemble music ever presented, and on the audacious Like It Is, keeps that tradition alive on the fifth album from his 16-piece New York Big Band. A group by the way, that has been around and swinging for over two decades boasting a personnel listing of all-stars and jazz luminaries which, have garnished the eventual Grammy nods with the four previous recordings. The inspiration for the album, may have been the desire to present large orchestrations with a respect and feel of the past big band voice augmented by an infusion of the modern approach to ensemble music, offering a terrific, propulsive and engaging big band sound "like it is" now!

Consisting of three albums originally recorded direct-to-disc by Sheffield in 1976 and 1979, and now spectacularly re-mastered by Seth Winner from analog disc originals, this program of music from the height of the swing era is a vital representation of one of the great big bands of the 20th century. To hear this music recorded by Sheffield from the perspective of a single stereo microphone, is to hear this magnificent band as dancers heard it in front of the bandstand, with the impact and energy that we don't associate with historic recordings of another era. Pretty thrilling stuff! This amazing 2 disc set includes ALL the music from the Original LP albums: THE KING JAMES VERSION, COMIN' FROM A GOOD PLACE and STILL HARRY AFTER ALL THESE YEARS.

For her new album, the charismatic American Helen Schneider has now for the first time interpreted songs and arrangements of German composer and bandleader Bert Kaempfert.And who does not know the father of easy-listenings and his songs? He went with compositions like ,, Spanish Eyes "and ,, Strangers In The Night" in the history of music. Some of these jewels are also included on ,, The World We Knew ". Together with the internationally renowned and multiple Grammy-nominated SWR Big band is formed an excellent lightweight yet expressive tribute album that stands in the tradition of jazz music of the 50s and the orchestral swing music of the 60s. The lively big band sound makes the feet while listening to bob up and down and make you dance.
