Chris Speed - Really OK (2014)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 52:42 min | 123 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Skirl Records

Saxophonist/clarinetist Chris Speed's two decades descent into New York City's underground jazz realm has proven a multi-pronged mission. Not only has myriad groups he's either led or assumed membership in been vital in levitating the local scene but the multireedist has also helped document the innovators roiling the landscape via his Skirl Records imprint. Speed had a banner year in 2013: a collaboration with intrepid electro-acoustic trio Lama (Lamaçal, Clean Feed); another set of intertwining wizardry from Endangered Blood (Work Your Magic, Skirl); rock/jazz hybrid of Jim Black's AlasNoAxis (Antiheroes, Winter & Winter) and post-jazz sprawl of The Claudia Quintet (September, Cuneiform).

Claudio Filippini Trio - Breathing In Unison (2014)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 48:45 min | 112 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Cam Jazz

The association between CAM JAZZ and Claudio Filippini is growing to an increasingly greater depth. The same applies to the collaborative relationship between the piano player from Italy’s Abruzzi region and the Scandinavian rhythm section consisting of the great Palle Danielsson on double bass and Olavi Louhivuori on drums. After approximately one year, “Breathing In Unison” is the ideal sequel to the outstanding Facing North.

Frank Wess - The Flute Mastery Of Frank Wess (2013) {Progressive Records}
EAC rip (secure mode) | FLAC (tracks)+CUE+LOG -> 325 Mb | MP3 @320 -> 141 Mb
Full Artwork @ 600 dpi (jpg) -> 190 Mb | 5% repair rar
© 2013 Progressive Records | PCD-7057
Jazz / Post Bop / Modern Jazz / Flute

An all-flute album from Frank Wess – a great small combo date that really gets at the lyrical modes in Frank's style! Wess had been playing flute on record for over 20 years by the time of this early 80s date – but there's a really special feeling to the album that brings out some of Frank's more sensitive, personal qualities – a mode that's quite free from the Basie-tinged work of his youth, and awash with wonderful colors and tones that really show a great deal of development on his instrument.

It was commissioned by the South Bank Show, London Weekend Television‘s flagship arts programme, and broadcast nation-wide on Good Friday, April 24th, 1984. Its eight movements follow the events related in the gospel story.

Label/Cat#: Inakustik "Compact Disc Reference Edition" # inak 8806 CD | Country/Year: Germany 1987

...In the same year he participated in the Jazz Festival of Messina. In 1987, he collaborated with George Garzone on tenor and trumpeter Jimmy Owens. But the meeting is what will have the most significant in 1988 with Joe Pass, who calls him to play as a guest during several concerts in a club in Rome. Inspired by this great jazz guitar virtuoso, talent Eddy Palermo is increasingly oriented towards the "one guitar"...

Jaco Pastorius - Modern American Music... (2014)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 66:14 min | 156 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Omnivore Records

1976 was, for electric bassists, the year where everything changed. Jaco Pastorius hadn't quite emerged from nowhere, and the few prior recordings on which he could be found may have provided some hint of what was to come, but it was the quadruple punch of fellow legend-in-the-making Pat Metheny's leader debut Bright Size Life (ECM, 1976), singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell's classic Hejira (Elektra/Asylum, 1976), fusion super group Weather Report's Black Market (Columbia, 1976) and, most notably, the bassist's own Jaco Pastorius (Epic, 1976)...

Jazz Icons - Sonny Rollins - Live In '65 & '68 (2008)
Video: NTSC, MPEG-2 at 6 523 Kbps, 720 x 480 at 29.970 fps | Audio: AC-3 2 channels at 192 Kbps, 48.0 KHz
Genre: Jazz | Label: Naxos | Copy: Untouched | Release Date: 29 Sep 2008 | Runtime: 86 min. | 4,10 GB (DVD5)

Sonny Rollins was 35 years old in 1965. With John Coltrane, he was standing head and shoulders above all other contemporary tenor players. At the time of his Denmark 1965 show at the Copenhagen Jazz Festival, Rollins was between the recordings of what would become Sonny Rollins on Impulse! and Alfie. Active since the late 1940s, Rollins was enjoying well established and deserved international acclaim.

Vince Guaraldi Trio - Jazz Impressions Of Black Orpheus (1962) {2010 Fantasy} [OJC Remasters Complete Series] (Item #15)
EAC rip (secure mode) | FLAC (tracks)+CUE+LOG -> 349 Mb | MP3 @320 -> 148 Mb

An extension of the popular Original Jazz Classics series (est. 1982), the new OJC Remasters releases reveal the sonic benefits of 24-bit remastering-a technology that didn't exist when these titles were originally issued on compact disc. The addition of newly-written liner notes further enhances the illuminating quality of the OJC Remasters reissues. "Each of the recordings in this series is an all-time jazz classic," says Nick Phillips, Vice President of Jazz and Catalog A&R at Concord Music Group and producer of the series.

Les Paul Trio - Playing And Making The Guitar 1944-1947 (2010)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 27 Tracks | 01:17:06 | 176 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Doxy Music

Although from a historical standpoint Les Paul is perhaps best remembered for his invention of the solid-bodied electric guitar and his groundbreaking efforts in multi-tracking, this should not overshadow his considerable talent as a performer and virtuoso master of the guitar. Originally highly influenced by Django Reinhardt, by the time these recordings were made, Les Paul had developed a unique style that has gone on to influence countless others...

Django Reinhardt - The Versatile Giant (2009)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 12 Tracks | 34:00 | 98 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Inner City Records

Django was easily the greatest guitarist of his time. Although he died in '53, his influence continues to help shape the direction of his instrument. The re-release of these rare recordings is no small cause for celebration. They feature Django in a number of settings from '34 to '41, with Joseph Reinhardt, Juan Fernandez, Johnny Hodges, Duke Ellington (and his orchestra), Pierre Michelot, Hubert Fol, Stephane Grappelli, and more. This is a recording no jazz fan will be able to pass up.

Bennie Wallace - Bennie Wallace (1998)
Jazz, Post Bop | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 53 min | 123 MB
Label: Audioquest | Rel: 1998

For this mostly relaxed date, tenor saxophonist Bennie Wallace (who plays pretty melodically throughout much of the session) is teamed with veteran pianist Tommy Flanagan, bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Alvin Queen. Wallace does his best to temper some of his wilder interval jumps but it is such an integral part of his style that he does let loose in spots. The rhythm section is tight and tasteful and the quartet explores seven standards, plus an original apiece by Wallace ("Little Surprises") and Flanagan ("Beyond the Bluebird"). Other highlights include Duke Ellington's rarely played "Serenade to Sweden," "Moon Song" and "So in Love."

Bennie Wallace - The Old Songs (1993)
Jazz, Swing Jazz, Post Bop | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 53 min | 122 MB
Label: JVC | Rel: 1993

Like his younger contemporary James Carter (and Joe Lovano, for that matter), tenor saxophonist Bennie Wallace seems able to reference a panoply of jazz legends in his playing. He's got the octave leaps that Eric Dolphy made his own, and a swing-era sense of full-bodied tone and breathy playing, to boot. His renditions of standards on Old Songs, then, sound alternately like Ben Webster, Sonny Rollins, and some genetic hybrid of about six other saxophonists. This set finds tenor sax master Bennie Wallace at the top of his form, putting his indelible stamp on a program of timeless classics. Bennie is joined by Lou Levy, Alvin Queen and Bill Huntington.
