ean: 0013431451129,

4.6 out of 5 stars with 124 reviews
Pianist Jaki Byard has an unerringly firm knowledge of virtually all jazz piano traditions, from the snappiest boogie woogie to the most thundering free jazz. In this solo recital as part of the Concord Records Maybeck Recital Hall series, Byard veers towards the bebop and pre-bop areas, delving into the kind of tweaked angularity that marked the music of Thelonious Monk, one of Byard's contemporaries. He also delights in a one-handed cascade across the piano keys, and then he firmly trots

This live 1990 set makes clear that Cassandra Wilson had fully arrived. In the live setting, she calls on greater reserves of vim than mark her predominantly lolling, brooding studio dates. All to great effect. One senses Betty Carter-like showmanship, Peggy Lee-like swagger, and, of course, Nina Simone's otherworldly drone. Just as formative was Wilson's Joni Mitchell-inspired apprenticeship in the coffeehouses of Jackson, Mississippi, and other southern cities. She breathes fresh life into

Eric Dolphy at the Five Spot Vol. 1

In Stock

ean: 0025218613323,

4.0 out of 5 stars with 25 reviews
If you want to get a taste of Eric Dolphy live then this is the set to get. Certainly the Coltrane Village Vanguard sessions featuring Dolphy are masterpieces; however, he has more room to blow in this setting. Dolphy, for all his unique and decidedly individual style, was a remarkably emphatic player. His associations with Coltrane and Charles Mingus, and here with Mal Waldron, are truly special instances of jazz players complimenting and enriching each other's playing. Dolphy and Waldron are

Live Love Larf and Loaf [Remastered][Bonus Tracks]

In Stock

ean: 5020393306720,

4.8 out of 5 stars with 13 reviews
2008 digitally remastered and expanded edition of this collaboration album featuring four previously unreleased live bonus tracks. The album Live, Love, Larf & Loaf was first released in 1987 and is a wonderful and rare collaboration between four experimental world-class master musicians. Richard Thompson once joked that if his presence on an album with John French, Fred Frith, and Henry Kaiser was expected to help it appeal to a wider audience, it didn't say much for the state of their

ean: 0502479203772,

4.5 out of 5 stars with 14 reviews
This third release by the super band Pago Libre on Leo Records was recorded live at the end of their phenomenal tour of China. It features Tscho Theissing on violin, Arkady Shilkloper on horn, John Wolf Brennan on piano and Daniele Patumi on bass. The musicianship, drive and finess of these four virtuosos are breathtaking. Their music is compositionally challenging and loose in feeling, loaded with multi-layered, complex textures, but possessing the ''primitive'' charm of folklore and ''vulgar

Recorded in 1969, Live in Paris follows two studio albums that the Art Ensemble cut for BYG/Actuel during the same year -- A Jackson In Your House and Message To Our Folks. What Parisian audiences must have made of the band with its wild makeup and costumes can only be debated, but the music contained on this double-CD reissue of the original double-album (the LP was issued on the Arista Freedom label in the United States in 1974). Each CD features one composition, and is divided into two
