Sinatra/Jobim: The Complete Reprise Recordings
Antonio Carlos Jobim
Concord Records, 2010
"Sinatra/Jobim" is much more Jobim
I have always liked Bossa Nova - my first Jazz CD was "Getz/Gilberto". Most of these songs I am familiar with on the original Portuguese, I've heard them that way for decades. A few of Jobim's songs were translated over the years, but not that many. Portuguese is a wonderfully mellifluous language, someone could read the phone book in Portuguese and it would sound good. Other than the Getz Bossa ...
Verve Forecast, 2010
Brings Brass to Another Universe
If you like funked up brass jazz you're going to love Trumbone Shorty's Backatown. Backatown mixes the musical DNA of the Funky Meters and the Rebirth Brass Band. If this doesn't make your feet smile I'd recommend defibulation of your rhythm muscle ... cuz somethin' bad wrong with your Durational Pattern. It's today's New Orleans' brass.
Heart and Soul
Concord Records, 2010
Your Kenny G with the blend of the new trend.
If you are a Kenny G fan, you should definitely get this album. It's your same old Kenny G with the breath of today music, I really love the beats of many songs in the album, it's new but you recognize Kenny G right from the 1st note! I'm glad that I bought this CD, and you will be too :) Smooth Jazz
My One & Only Thrill
Smart, seductive, thoroughly enjoyable
After being tired of all the repeat plays of Norah Jones and Diana Krall, I found this album to be similarly jazzy and cool, but a new, refreshing taste of a strong female voice. This album is creative and very sexy music. I love having it on during the weekend or in the evening. I look forward to her next album with much impatience!
6 String Theory
Concord Records, 2010
[...]...[...].....The CD is Lee Ritenour's 6 String Theory....anyone who paid attention to the promo's should know that Rit invited many of the greatest guitarists currently alive, over 20 of them, to record a project in complete devotion to teh guitar and several forms of playing it. The only Cd in recent memory with so many heavyweights was Les Paul's tribute CD a few years back. This CD ...
Ecm Records, 2010
An absolutely wonderful album!
Every now and then, an album comes along that is just perfect, and this is one of them. Like other fans wrote, this music is played almost daily here. The musicianship is impeccable, the production pristine, and the mood is never lost. A great record.
Sending My Love
Concord Records, 2010
Sending His Love
Norman has once again given us a cd to enjoy and remember. The track "I'm pouring my love" is my favorite. This is smooth jazz at it's best. Thanks Norman and keep them coming!
TRIPPIN & RHYTHM, 2010
BILLBOARD Magazine's 2008 Smooth Jazz Artist of the Year, prolific producer/multi-instrumentalist, Paul Hardcastle releases the much anticipated volume VI in his immensely popular Jazzmasters series, a vehicle that helped him re-launch his career in the early '90s, made him a household name and has garnered him legions of rabid fans worldwide. It's been 19 years since the release of Jazzmasters I a pet project that became a format game changer ...
Stanley Clarke Band
Heads Up, 2010
I grew up on fusion in the 70's. It was new then and I couldn't get enough of it. I love jazz as a whole but fusion is what holds my heart. I grew up on "Journey to Love", "School Days", "Rocks, Pebbles and Sand" and RTF. I am a music fiend who orders music weekly and frankly there's no more room in the house so I'm trying to curb my addiction. I was impressed with 07's "Toys of Men" but this cd ...
The Imagine Project
Herbie Hancock Records, 2010
A crossover project that actually works!
This is an amazing record. Herbie gets together musicians from various countries, styles, and cultures, and plays songs about social change. It's like a much classier "Supernatural" by Santana. Herbie brings his harmonic sensibility and groove to whatever style he's playing, be it Indian-infused jazz or swampy blues or Irish music. Every tune takes you on its own journey, yet the record holds ...
Nothing But The Best
Reprise / Wea, 2008
WONDERFUL OLD TUNES
Old blue eyes cranks out 22 wonderful old tunes for your entertainment with a voice strangely reminiscent of Richard Widmark or John Wayne. A perfect backdrop for an evening filled with hotdogs and beer. But don't forget the rolaids.
Reprise / Wea, 2003
If you like Michael Buble's voice I believe you will enjoy hearing this CD of his.
Kind of Blue
A Classical Music Person Weighs In
I've been listening to, studying and basically "living" classical music for over 30 years. Recently I woke up and in a fit of insanity decided to purchase "Kind of Blue", having read that it's the greatest Jazz recording of all time. Jazz, of course, is nothing but aleatoric bombast; brain candy; pure junk, right? But I decided to give it a try anyway. Great stuff. It took me a few times to ...
The Last Airbender
James Newton Howard
Lakeshore Records, 2010
I realize the review's title isn't very imaginative, but that's the only way to describe this. James Newton Howard was an outstanding choice for the soundtrack to this film; as directors tend to go with the ones they trust- Lucas/Williams, Burton/Elfman, etc- M.Night Shayamalan and Howard have a good relationship, blossoming in his under-appreciated effort on The Lady In The Water. The general ...
Call Me Irresponsible
Reprise / Wea, 2007
I love Buble's creamy, velvety voice. It is so rare to hear someone with a truly beautiful voice who just sings--no frills, no shouting, no embellishing for five minutes when one note will do. You can understand his words and just listen to his gorgeous voice and the pretty music. I think I was born in the wrong era in terms of my musical taste, but this is one modern singer that I really ...
A Neo-chantical Masterpiece
How stunning is this disc? Put this disc into your c.d. changer, and press it to track 7, "Brief Eternity." Now, picture this scenario: You have been battling cancer for a year. You have finally reached the end, where you don't drink, you don't eat, and your grip on life has reached the subconscious terminus. As you feel your spirit going to the light, as you begin to climb Jacob's ladder, ...
If you love Michael Buble you will love this. Wished there would have been more songs. Please Michael record Fly Me To The Moon!
Pushing the Envelope
just received mr. albrights new CD. WOW What an amazing piece of work by this premier saxophonist. if track #8 dont put a tear in your eyes then go get your eyes tested for dryness. well done brother man!!!!!! awesome
Blue Note Records, 2010
Overview: Ten celebrates 10 years of Jason's bandwagon band with a release of new songs and arrangements. While previous bandwagon CDs tended to be driven by a concept, this CD is just straight forward playing by the trio. Bandwagon is made of up Jason Moran on piano, Nasheet Waits on drums, and Tarus Mateen on bass. In my opinion Jason is the top jazz pianist playing today. Of course there ...
GRP Records, 2010
Brian Culbertson commemorates his twelfth release with 12 new songs that continue to reflect his broad-ranging musicality and mastery of intimate moods. The titles swing from the rapturous metaphorically rich love ballad "Skies Wide Open" (featuring R&B singing star Avant), the sexy bedroom baby-maker "I Wanna Love You" (featuring singer/guitarist Ray Parker Jr.), the strings-kissed dance jam "Another Love" (featuring 21st century soul man Kenny ...
