Live At Newport: 1959, 1963, 1971 [ORIGINAL RECORDINGS REMASTERED] 3CD SET
4.8 out of 5 stars with 65 reviews
This is an interesting package that provides the Kenton fan the opportunity to compare three distinct editions of Stan's orchestra. The sound quality is excellent on the first two discs, slightly less on the third. The 1959 band really screams on this one, featuring one of the best recorded versions of ''Intermission Riff''. The 1963 Mellophone bands tears through the set taking NO prisoners, much to the delight of the 4th of July crowd, who can be heard going absolutely nuts at the conclusion

4.0 out of 5 stars with 98 reviews
Due to bad mike placement on stage, the original ''live'' album was actually a studio re-creation; the actual live performance was never issued-until now. This 2-CD set contains the complete original album and the hour-plus concert . More than 100 minutes of new music, and the whole thing's in stereo for the first time! When Duke Ellington took his orchestra to the Newport Jazz Festival in 1956, the band was in need of an uplift, some humongous event that would revitalize its image in the wake

Live in Time
4.9 out of 5 stars with 91 reviews
All his life, Charles Mingus wanted a jazz orchestra like the one led by his hero Duke Ellington. Mingus certainly deserved one, for he was one of 20th century's greatest American composers, and his muscular rhythms and thick, bluesy harmonies cried out for a band big to do them justice. Yet during his lifetime, he never had the money or the patience to keep a big band together for more than a few brief stints. So it's ironic indeed that in 1997, 18 years after the composer's death, the best

Given that most jazz historians consider Bird's early Savoy recordings to be his best, this 4-CD set occupies some rarefied air in the world of jazz reissues. The first three CDs consist of his Royal Roost broadcasts from September 1948 through March 1949; this material has been reissued before, but never with such good sound and judicious editing (emcee Symphony Sid is not as ubiquitous or as annoying). And disc four includes a rare 1947 concert in New York with Diz and John Lewis among
On the Air 1937 - 1938
4.9 out of 5 stars with 97 reviews
Without question, high-octane swing was the rock & roll of the 1930s. Listening to these radio shots recorded live by Goodman's 1937-1938 orchestra (his best) and small group (also his best), one is immediately struck by the lighthearted urgency of the players as well as the animated response of the crowd. At this stage in jazz's development, the interaction between audience and artist was vital (only later to be cooled by bebop), and Goodman's band consistently delights and electrifies the

A Night In Tunisia One of the most famous live recordings in jazz history, this May 1953 concert from Toronto brought together five of bebop's greatest figures in alto saxophonist Charlie Parker (credited here as ''Charlie Chan'' in a purposely transparent attempt to sidestep Parker's exclusive recording arrangement with another record company), trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie, pianist Bud Powell, drummer Max Roach, and

Producer David Foster (Celine Dion, Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston) has a new discovery in the wake of very successful young find Josh Groban. Michael Bublé (pronounced boo-blay) is a 25-year-old singing sensation whose smooth voice and heartthrob style harks back to the swingin' greats of earlier decades, to the likes of Frank and Dean, but also speaks to a new generation's sensibility. On his self-titled debut album, romantic crooner Bublé makes some of the greatest love songs of all
