...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"...

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.

It's no secret that one of the most powerful weapons in Zappa's arsenal was his sense of humor, which was at its height in live performance. Consequently, there's no better way to get a feel for the full scope of Zappa's music than on the live ROXY & ELSEWHERE. This set finds Frank at his mid-'70s peak, working with Ruth Underwood, Don Preston, George Duke, etc. While all the tunes are technically impeccable (often featuring trademark feats of counter-intuitive derring-do), it's Zappa's humorous interaction with the band and the audience that puts the real spark into this recording.

Miles Davis - Miles Davis At Fillmore: Live At The Fillmore East (1970) [2CD] {1997 Columbia Remaster}

With the critical reviews for Bitches Brew popping up in everything from local and national newspapers to jazz magazines, and Steve Grossman firmly established in the saxophone chair recently vacated by Wayne Shorter, Miles threw his band a curve ball. He added Keith Jarrett on organ to a group that already included bassist Dave Holland, electric pianist Chick Corea, percussionist Airto Moreira, and drummer Jack DeJohnette for a four-night stand at the Fillmore East. This double-LP/CD package puts together selections from each night, without regard for repetition. It's fine that there are numerous performances of certain tunes: the problem is that, although the music is compelling, it's schizophrenic because there are no full performances on the final release; they were all edited severely (as was standard practice by Teo Macero and Davis).

Bob Berg/Mike Stern Group - Live (2004)
Video: PAL, MPEG-2 at 8 000 Kbps, 720 x 576 (1.333) at 25.000 fps | Audio: AC-3 2 channels at 192 Kbps, 48.0 KHz
Genre: Jazz | Label: Jazz Door | Copy: Untouched | Release Date: 14 July 2004 | Runtime: 49 min. | 2,91 GB (DVD5)

Tenor saxophonist Bob Berg channeled the bold dynamics of hard bop to emerge as one of contemporary jazz's most expressive and resourceful improvisers, honing a richly articulated sound bolstered by flawless technical command. Born in New York City on April 7, 1951, Berg grew up in Brooklyn, initiating piano lessons at age six. At 13, he moved to alto saxophone, first discovering jazz when a high school teacher introduced him to the music of Cannonball Adderley and Horace Silver.

Jimmy Smith: Funk In The Keys - Live At The Florida Keys `99 (2005)
Video: PAL, MPEG-2 at 7 472 Kbps, 720 x 576 at 25.000 fps | Audio: AC-3 6ch. at 448 Kbps, AC-3 2ch. at 224 Kbps, DTS 6ch. at 755 Kbps
Genre: Jazz | Label: Alpha Centauri Ent. | Copy: Untouched | Release Date: 7 July 2005 | Runtime: 42 min. | 2,77 GB (DVD5)

Jimmy Smith wasn't the first organ player in jazz, but no one had a greater influence with the instrument than he did; Smith coaxed a rich, grooving tone from the Hammond B-3, and his sound and style made him a top instrumentalist in the 1950s and '60s, while a number of rock and R&B keyboardists would learn valuable lessons from Smith's example. James Oscar Smith was born in Norristown, Pennsylvania on December 8, 1928 (some sources cite his birth year as 1925). Smith's father was a musician and entertainer, and young Jimmy joined his song-and-dance act when he was six years old.

Adam Holzman & Brave New World - The Big Picture (1997)
Jazz, Jazz Fusion | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 57 min | 131 MB
Label: Escapade Music | Rel: 1997

Holzman manned the keyboards in the late 80s Miles Davis Band. By '85, he became musical director for the band. The music is a punchy fusion. Electronic musicians sample jazz grooves, now here is a jazz band that introduced some of their tracks with ear-catching samples. It is a rhythm intensive effort with a clouded demeanor. An exciting album, having avoided any jazz fusion cliches. It could be considered rock where sax takes over guitar duties.

Hot Club De Frank - Shine (2000)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 17 Tracks | 1:04:45 | 149,25 MB
Genre: Jazz, Swing, Gypsy Jazz, Vocal Jazz | Label: Sam Sam Music

Shine, the title of this second album of Hot Club De Frank says it all. With a mixture of swing, musette and variety this young Amsterdam Quintet creates a very romantic atmosphere with a wink to the 1930's. The dreamy voice of leadsinger Frank Meester, the tuneful guitar solo's of Harold Berghuis, the stir up improvisations of saxophonist and clarinettist Wim Lammen combined together with the chorus of the other group members make this album very special.
