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

In the 1970s, Bessie Smith's recordings were reissued on five double LPs. Her CD reissue series also has five volumes (the first four are double-CD sets) with the main difference being that the final volume includes all of her rare alternate takes (which were bypassed on LP). The first set (which, as with all of the CD volumes, is housed in an oversize box that includes an informative booklet) contains her first 38 recordings. During this early era, Bessie Smith had no competitors on record and she was one of the few vocalists who could overcome the primitive recording techniques; her power really comes through.

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)".

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: Warner Classics | Tracks: 162 | Rls.date: 2017

This 12-CD set joins Warner Classics’ Icon series, which pays homage to some of the greatest recording artists of the recent past. The box is devoted to the French conductor Louis Frémaux, who, from 1969 to 1978, preceded Simon Rattle as Principal Conductor of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. For the first time, it assembles all the recordings that Frémaux and the CBSO made for EMI. Over the course of the 1970s their discography played a substantial role in building the orchestra’s international reputation before the arrival of Rattle as its Principal Conductor in 1980. Indeed, such was the orchestra’s prowess in the French music favoured by Frémaux that, in 1978, Rattle described the CBSO as “the best French orchestra in the world”.
