Mosaic, the Rolls-Royce of record companies, has produced another of its limited-edition gems (5,000 copies and no more). This five-CD boxed set highlights the early work of two of the more famous vocal graduates of the swing era -- Peggy Lee and June Christy. Recently signed by Capitol, they were the company's attempt to break into the transcription business. Transcriptions were records provided to radio stations to fill a constant need for music that regular commercial releases were unable to meet. Most of the songs on this album, cuts from 1945 through 1949, were never before or since recorded by Lee and Christy, so they are a nice addition to their respective discographies.

Curtis Lee occupies the era of rock & roll in between the death of Buddy Holly and the arrival of the Beatles -- a period usually thought of as "lost years," because, apart from the Beach Boys, few of the artists involved lingered long on the charts or left an obvious legacy into the next era. Neither did Lee, but two of his songs, "Pretty Little Angel Eyes" and "Under the Moon of Love," evoke vivid associations with that innocent, romantic era. Details

2 CD set. The complete contents of the original Atlantic label LPs Worthwhile Konitz & Inside Hi Fi, which contain all of Konitz' 1956 quartet recordings.

It showcases Konitz in a quartet setting again on most of the album.

Flautist Art Webb performed and recorded with top artists through the heyday of jazz fusion and furthermore made his mark on the salsa scene. Mr. Flute and Love Yes were his only two solo albums, both recorded in 1977 with the contrasting production teams of Patrick Adams and Jerry Schoebaum/John Lee. Patrick brings a soulful disco flavour to the debut Mr. Flute and features a collaboration with the group Raices, while former Roy Ayers producer Jerry alongside John Lee (of John Lee & Gerry Brown) bring a sophisticated soul flavour to songs like Arts classic reading of You Cant Hide Love featuring the vocals of Tawatha

Peggy Lee - Miss Peggy Lee [4CD Box Set] (1998)

Peggy Lee - Miss Peggy Lee [4CD Box Set] (1998)
4CD | EAC-Rip | FLAC-image +cue +log +SCANS | April 21, 1998 | 1.47 Gb
Genre: Vocal, Jazz, Oldies | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Capitol | Hotfile, Fileserve

Listening to this stunning collection of songs from the 40s through the 60s from the bluesy, indomitable Miss Lee is not as much a blast from the past as a smoldering, come-hither nudge as only Peggy can deliver. These recordings sound better than ever and four CDs are just the right amount to adequately represent the various styles of music and collaborators this genuine American original has complemented. Her fading health in recent years seems to have dimmed Miss Lee's contribution to the world of music, elevating Ella Fitzgerald, Rosemary Clooney, and Billie Holiday to higher rungs at the same time.

This CD is a recording, 4 albums worth (previously released on 3 separate albums w/10 extra cuts to boot!) of "The Greatest Entertainer In The World" Jerry Lee Lewis Live at the Palomino Honky Tonk. The Killer shines in this friendly beer swillin' environment and his music rises to the occasion. This is great honky tonkin' piana playin' by one of Rock's legendary performers. And the back up band consisting of James Burton of 'gitar and Kenny Lovelace on fiddle ain't to shabby 'neither! A great album - pure Americana. Details

The soundtrack to a smoky late night bar in Chicago, or a hot Sunday afternoon down at the Popcorn. If you feel the cold sweat of soul, and the cool chills of haunted crooners singing out their final swansong, or the sinful shakes of R&B in it's twilight years, then you have a bad case of Slow Grind Fever! This is a collection of haunting, hungry, heartbroken humdingers full of swing, sway and sleaze. With obscure B-sides sitting next to some of these great artists' last outings on wax. --Stag-O-Lee Records

Pianist Lennie Tristano was an early inspiration and a major influence on the playing of altoist Lee Konitz and tenor saxophonist Warne Marsh. Their very notable and highly original Capitol recordings of 1949 -- with the quiet metronomic rhythm section, advanced melodic improvising, and reharmonizations -- stood apart from the typical bop of the period. By 1955, when the earliest performances on this 1997 limited-edition, six-CD set were recorded, the trio was not working together very often; in fact, Tristano was mostly functioning as a teacher, only surfacing for occasional records and club dates.
