Memphis trumpeter Louis Smith had an almost mythical career. Smith started off in fast company that included Kenny Burrell, Cannonball Adderley, and Zoot Sims, then recorded two rare albums, and finally retired from the scene to become a music teacher, only to return to music in 1978. One of those rare LPs, 1958's SMITHVILLE, is mainstream hard bop of the highest order. While there are no surprises per se, this set features an incredible group–Monk's right-hand man tenor saxophonist Charles Rouse, post-bop ace pianist Sonny Clark, Miles Davis bassist Paul Chambers–playing with a genuine fervor. SMITHVILLE is a virtual must-have for hard bop fanatics.

P.Funk Soul

Album is part of this series because of later p-funker Ronald Dunbar's participation.
' A sublime bit of east coast soul and the only full album ever cut by this heavenly-voiced trio! The group have a sound to rival the best of their contemporaries on the harmony soul scene, one that floats along on a light pillow of strings and soul, with just the right amount of heavier touches to give the record a bit more of the HDH depth. The falsetto bits are especially nice drifting out in front of the deeper vocals and the whole thing’s got a solidness that should have made these guys huge. These brothers from St. Louis are the Delfonics of the Mid-West. If you like the style of male vocals from the ’70s, this is a must download. This is a @320 vinyl rip of my original Buddah records with covers.' nikos@funkmysoul

Reissue with the latest remastering. Comes with liner notes. George Benson's first LP for Columbia – a hard, heavy, soul jazz slammer that bears no resemblance to his overproduced work of the 70s! The album's a real cooker – recorded hot on the heels of Benson's classic work on Prestige with the Jack McDuff group, and sounding a lot like McDuff's hard wailing organ jazz of the same time. George is working with a group that features a young Lonnie Smith on organ, plus Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Ronnie Cuber on sax, and Charlie Persip on drums – all tightly coming together, and jamming hard on the album's short cooking tracks. Tracks include "Clockwise", "Jaguar", "Hello Birdie", and "Bullfight". Plus, the CD adds five bonus tracks, including "Sideman", "Minor Chant", and the previously unreleased "J.H. Bossa Nova" and "Clockwise (Alternate Take)".

New Orleans Jazz | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 1,63 Gb
Label: Universal Music

This 10-CD set is as good a compendium of the genius of Louis Armstrong as anyone could wish for. It’s all here: the early years with the King Oliver and Fletcher Henderson bands, the glorious period of the Hot Fives and Sevens, the big band recordings of the Thirties, the collaborations with contemporaries such as Ella Fitzgerald. Then there are the later recordings, when Satchmo’s celebrity empowered him to soar over many political and racial divides. There’s also a fascinating unreleased Hollywood Bowl concert from 1956, a CD of “out-takes” from recording sessions, and a revealing interview with Dan Morgenstern.

You can't get any more popular in American entertainment than Keely Smith was in the early '60s. Having blown the doors out in Las Vegas, winning a Grammy, having hit after hit and lighting up television screens playing straight "man" to husband Louis Prima, she'd navigated the tricky waters of a professional and personal divorce, striking out on her own and starting her own record label, Keely Records, in partnership with close friend and mentor Frank Sinatra, under the auspices of his Reprise label.

Label: Aparté

In this eagerly awaited solo album for the enterprising Aparté label, Louis Schwizgebel appropriates two gems of piano repertoire: Sonata D845 (no. 16) in A minor, considered the first of Schubert's maturity, impresses with the mastery of its structure and its expressive power. Worthy of a symphony, D958 in C minor, 19th out of the 21 that he composed, symbolises the mastery of the composer, freed from the weight of his admiration for Beethoven.

Some of Kenny Burrell's best early work ! The album catches Kenny in the perfect Blue Note jam session mode of the late 50s — one used also with Jimmy Smith, and which features a number of the label's star players hitting hard with the main soloist. Players on the two volume set include Duke Jordan or Bobby Timmons piano, Junior Cook and Tina Brooks tenor, Louis Smith trumpet, and Art Blakey on Drums. The cuts have a very open-ended blowing session feel, and Kenny comes through surprisingly well, really picking up steam on a way you don't always hear in more restrained recordings.
