Dedic Matija - Ligherian Rhapsody: Piano Solo Improvisation (2015)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 53:49 min | 127 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Workin' Label

"Ligheryan Rhapsody", the new album by the croatian pianist and composer Matija Dedić that arrives at his first solo work after fifteen years of intense recording activity. The idea of the album was born spontaneously by some piano improvisations during recording sessions while he was working with other projects. After three successive improvisation’s sessions the music takes shape in eleven piano solo songs that would make the track list. The compositions appear as a deep reflection on improvised music, the world in which the author perceives the existence to its full expression, and at the same time a tribute to composers of contemporary music who influenced him along his artistic career.

Gerard Marais Quartet - Inner Village (2015)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 47:24 min | 111 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Cristal Records

Lyrisme chaleureux pour un combo de luxe... On dit qu’il y a les « oeuvres de jeunesse », puis qu’il y a celles de la « maturité ». Oui, mais après…. Quand le voyageur a fait quelques fois le tour du monde ( son monde intérieur bien sûr ) il a envie de regarder de plus près autour de chez lui. Et il s’aperçoit que ces paysages, qui lui semblaient familiers, trop familiers peut être, se dévoilent désormais comme des territoires passionnants et mystérieux. Sans doute parce qu’à la fin, c’est grâce à la poésie que l’homme arrive à faire la paix avec son environnement….

Jose James - Yesterday I Had The Blues: The Music Of Billie Holiday (2015) {Blue Note}

José James has a reputation as a 21st century musical renaissance man. He's issued a remarkably consistent series of records that blur the lines between soul, funk, dance music, jazz, and rock. In addition, in 2010, he released For All We Know, a fine collection of jazz standards in duet with Belgian pianist Jef Neve. It is from this place that James releases Yesterday I Had the Blues: The Music of Billie Holiday. In his liner essay he cites Holiday as the artist who made him aspire to be a jazz singer. Accompanied by pianist Jason Moran, drummer Eric Harland, and bassist John Patitucci, James delivers a program of beauty and restraint for the centennial of her birth. James, who has the ability to accomplish startling vocalese and scat techniques, brings none it.

Miles Davis - We Want Miles (1981) [2CD] {2014 Japan Jazz Collection 1000 Columbia-RCA Series}

Reissue. Comes with new liner notes. 2014 latest DSD remastering. Well, it's not the Plugged Nickel or electric Japan in the 70s – but this is a surprisingly great 2LP set of live work by Miles from the early 80s – recorded in New York and Boston, with a lively full-on concert sort of feel! The group features Marcus Miller on bass, Bill Evans on soprano sax, Al Foster on drums, Mike Stern on guitar, and Mino Cinelu on percussion – and the tracks are long tunes, done with a bit of electricity, and sort of a joyous approach overall. Titles include "Kix", "My Man's Gone Now", "Jean Pierre", "Fast Track", and "Back Seat Betty".

Judith Owen - Lost and Found (2005)
Vocal Jazz | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 53 min | 122 MB
Label: Courgette Records | Rel: 2005

Singer/songwriter/pianist Judith Owen is to jazz what Richard Thompson is to rock & roll -- a member of the loyal opposition, someone whose roots are both centuries deeper and more broadly contemporary than any easy genre designation can account for. On her fifth album, she opens with a brooding voice-and-piano arrangement of Deep Purple's "Smoke on the Water," and although her generally jazzy originals fill up most of the remainder of the program, she also takes excursions into both the jazz standard repertoire (a great version of "Night and Day," featuring Richard Thompson on guitar) and more pop-oriented fare (a slightly less revelatory take on the Police's "Walking on the Moon").

Jagg - Mercure (2015)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 42:37 min | 101 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Effendi Records

JAGG Jules Payette, Antoine Pelegrin, Gabriel Gagnon and Guillaume Pilote is a group of four young, passionate musicians. Brought together by the common desire to explore new musical textures, the project of a quartet without a harmonic instrument began only recently, the group and their chemistry evolving in rapid fashion. The groups powerful sound, different orchestration and rich and varied colors is a most distinguishing feature. Their compositions are inspired and influenced by artists and collectives such as Wayne Shorter, Dave Holland, the SF Jazz Collective, and others. This album is the result of a year and a half of creative research. Their winning the Upstart contest Jazz en Rafale in 2014 helped the recording of Mercure along.

Myra Melford - Snowy Egret (2015)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 60:19 min | 141 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Enja

Myra Melford's piano playing sparkles like the blues, enchants like eastern music and illicits wonder like the great classical works. This unique blend is also present in her compositions, which arouse both emotion and the intellect. Galeano's 'Memoria del fuego' is a collage of fiction, travelogue, newspaper articles and letters, with which he creates his own Latin America. He re-writes and polishes up alternative creation myths. 'Snowy Egret' is a musical evocation of myths about the American continent. Duos, solos and counterpoint emphasize isolation, but simultaneously argue for an alternative way of life, in a community with shared values. Just like musical chords.

Gerry Mulligan - Western Reunion: Live In Amsterdam (1956)
Jazz | MP3 320 kbps CBR | Scans | 77 min | 185 MB
Label: Music Center | Rel: 1956

Gerry Mulligan recorded extensively as a leader in his lifetime, though his short-lived sextet of the mid-'50s was not represented very much in his discography by commercial recordings. This historical discovery, a 1956 midnight concert at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw that was also evidently broadcast, is an important addition, as one can hear the baritone saxophonist with valve trombonist Bob Brookmeyer, tenor saxophonist Zoot Sims, trumpeter Jon Eardley, bassist Bill Crow, and drummer Donald Bailey, all of whom would work in future Mulligan bands at one time or another.

This previously unreleased live set, which has been issued on Blue Note's Rare Groove Series, will bore anyone who listens closely. The repertoire is dominated by lengthy funk grooves that are quite danceable but never develop beyond the obvious. Altoist Lou Donaldson was using a baritone horn at the time that gave him a generic and unappealing tone, the obscure trumpeter Fred Ballard does his best to no avail and the enthusiastic rhythm section (guitarist Melvin Sparks, organist Leon Spencer, Jr., and drummer Idris Muhammad) keeps the grooves repetitious. Bob Porter's liner notes (which colorfully give readers the history of Newark jazz of the past 30 years) are superlative but, even with the inclusion of a fast blues, musically nothing much happens.

His trio includes Wilco Jordi on violin and accordionist Jean-Pierre Guiran, who also plays in the musette and Gypsy swing band Orkest Polytour. This CD is a finger-snapping good time.
