The story of this reissue reads like a movie: Chet Baker, the James Dean-meets-Miles Davis trumpeter moved to Rome in 1962. He gets arrested for buying dope, learns Italian in jail, and records a jazz album with the future spaghetti western composer, Ennio Morricone. Reissued in crystal clear digital sound, Baker's wispy, Milesian trumpet tunes float over several, combo-driven renditions of several and bop standards including Charlie Parker's "Barbados," Thelonious Monk's "Well, You Needn't," and the evergreen "Over the Rainbow." ~ Amazon

This thrilling adventure chronicles conflict in ancient Italy as Roman soldiers swagger through the streets of the city of Antigonea. The town is under occupation, with its citizens forced to pay a heavy ransom for the release of prisoners taken by the Romans. The rebellious Antigoneans Brenno and Goruk decide to fight back, but are unsuccessful. Goruk is the brother of the beautiful Fabiola, who in turn is betrothed to Brenno. Silla, the diabolical Roman tribune who has been placed in charge of Antigonea, is attracted to Fabiola. In order to spare her people further anguish, she agrees to live with Silla. Meanwhile, Silla sends Brenno to gladiator school so that he might hone his already impressive fighting skills and stage exhibitions for Sillas amusement. However, Brenno has other ideas on how to deal with the tyrannical Silla and free his fellow Antigoneans.

The viewer's immediate impression is that Zatoichi is an ordinary man. He wears simple clothes and isn't athletic. He moves slowly because he is blind, which makes it even more difficult to believe that he can defend himself. But those who attack him always die. He is so fast that most of his opponents never see the sword that is hidden in his cane. Some of them can hear it, but it is usually only a few seconds before their bodies collapse. Zatoichi: The Blind Swordsman is without a shadow of a doubt Criterion's most ambitious project to date. I don't think that even during the DVD era there were any such special releases (the only one that comes close is the beautiful Ford at Fox box set). Naturally, I urge you to consider adding it to your collections, and by doing so let Criterion know that their efforts are very much appreciated. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Features 24 bit digital remastering. Comes with a description. A firey stormer from the great Slide Hampton! The album's one of his few early sides for Atlantic – and like the others, it's a groundbreaking batch of larger group material, with slide out front on trombone, and the rest of the ensemble vamping along like a tight Blue Note combo. Players are excellent – and include George Coleman on tenor, Horace Parlan on piano, Hobart Dotson on trumpet, and Ray Barretto on drums – and Slide makes them come together so tightly, you'd think they were working together every night of the week! Titles include "The Barbarians", "Strollin", "The Jazz Twist", "Red Top", "Slide Slid", and "Day In Day Out".
