Although this superior set features three of the top Young Lions (tenors Joshua Redman and Javon Jackson and trumpeter Nicholas Payton), along with the fine bassist George Mraz, drummer Elvin Jones, 64 at the time, sounds like the youngest member of the group. Details

Milt Jackson - Burnin’ In The Woodhouse (1995)
EAC rip | FLAC + CUE + LOG | Full Scans | 350 Mb (Incl. Recovery)
Genre ~ Hard Bop, Marimba Jazz | Label ~ PAR Media Music

Burnin' in the Woodhouse is one of Milt Jackson's final recordings as a leader prior to his death in 1999, and the vibraphonist is still very much at the top of his game on this mid-'90s session. With a stimulating young rhythm section (pianist Benny Green, bassist Christian McBride, and the seasoned, in-demand drummer Kenny Washington), plus a trio of up-and-coming horn players (trumpeter Nicholas Payton, alto saxophonist Jesse Davis, and tenor saxophonist Joshua Redman) added on some tracks, Jackson works his magic, mixing potent jazz compositions and standards. ~ AllMusic

Synopsis : Deux astronautes, le Lieutenant Payton et le Caporal Bower se réveillent dans leur gigantesque vaisseau spatial après un long séjour en hyper-sommeil. Désorientés et plongés dans le noir, ils ne se souviennent ni de leurs identités ni de leur mission. Les seuls sons qui leur parviennent sont des vibrations provenant du coeur du vaisseau. Le Caporal Bower part en exploration et ne tarde pas à découvrir quelques survivants qui vivent cachés, traqués par d'effroyables créatures...

Two astronauts awaken in a hyper-sleep chamber aboard a seemingly abandoned spacecraft. It's pitch black, they are disoriented, and the only sound is a low rumble and creak from the belly of the spacecraft. They can't remember anything - who are they, what is their mission? The only way out of the chamber is a dark and narrow airshaft. Corporal Bower (Foster), the younger of the two, crawls inside, while the other, Lt. Payton (Quaid), stays behind for guidance on a radio transmitter. As Bower ventures deeper and deeper into the ship, he begins to uncover a terrifying reality. Slowly the spacecraft's shocking and deadly secrets come unraveled, and the astronauts realize that the survival of mankind hinges on their actions.

John Ellis - One Foot In The Swamp (2005) {Hyena Records}
EAC 1.1 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 300dpi | 396MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Hard-Bop, Fusion

John Ellis is one of jazz music’s youngest rising stars, having already received raves from publications like The New York Times, Down Beat and All Music Guide, while placing 2nd in the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Saxophonist Competition in 2002. Currently, Ellis is the saxophonist in Ropeadope recording artist Charlie Hunter’s widely celebrated and hard touring trio where his compositions have become staples of Hunter’s albums and live sets. With his own group, Ellis combines his affinity for New Orleans’ music (a city that he considers a second home) with the edge and urgency of modern jazz in New York City (his current home). On his full length HYENA debut entitled, One Foot In The Swamp, cuts like “Happy” and “One For The Helpers” make clear that Ellis is on the verge of worldwide jazz acclaim. He’s joined by special guests including John Scofield, Nicholas Payton and Jason Marsalis.

Carl Allen & Manhattan Projects - The Dark Side Of Dewey (1992)
EAC 1.0b3 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 600dpi | 327MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Jazz, Post-Bop

Despite the inclusion of Carl Allen's moody title cut, this tribute to Miles Davis is mostly pretty happy, with four selections taken from Davis' repertoire of the 1950s and early '60s ("All Blues," "My Funny Valentine," "Dear Old Stockholm," and "Just Squeeze Me") plus a few complementary originals by bandmembers. Trumpeter Nicholas Payton (even if he does not sound like Davis) and altoist Vincent Herring make for a potent team, while pianist Mulgrew Miller and bassist Dwayne Burno join Allen in keeping the music moving. No surprises occur, but there are plenty of fine solos throughout this modern mainstream set.

EAC Rip | FLAC (tracks+log+.cue) | 01:03:01 | 351 Mb

Joining Eubanks on this stellar outing are longtime collaborator and former Berklee College of Music schoolmate, drummer Marvin Smitty Smith, who fuels the West Coast outfit alongside seasoned session bassist Rene Camacho, percussionist Mino Cinelu and saxophonist Bill Pierce. Smith s East Coast counterpart on this bi-coastal session is the irrepressibly swinging Jeff Tain Watts, a force of nature on the kit who combines with bassist Dave Holland, Philadelphia-based pianist Orrin Evans and New York trumpeter Nicholas Payton for a potent lineup. Together these great musicians bring out the best in Eubanks six-string prowess and ignite his searching instincts throughout the sessions in Los Angeles and New York.

Maya Beiser & Michael Harrison - Time Loops (2012)
Contemporary Classical | Cantaloupe | 2012 | 60:24 | EAC (FLAC, cue, log) | Booklet | Various File Hosts | 310 MB
Maya Beiser: cello(s), Michael Harrison: piano, Young People's Chorus of NYC, Francisco J. Nuñez: director, Payton MacDonald: tabla and shaker

Michael Harrison's (b. 1959) Just Ancient Loops, a kaleidoscopic, three-part meditation for cello, combines ancient scales and harmonies with contemporary looping techniques that make Beiser’s solo instrument sound like an orchestra. Meanwhile, Hijaz, a brilliantly schizophrenic work that veers between slow, lyrical passages and fast, rhythmic spasms, unites an aged Middle Eastern and North African mode with the youthful voices of the Young People’s Chorus of New York City.

Clarence 'Gatemouth' Brown - American Music, Texas Style (1999)
EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 352 Mb | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 157 Mb | Scans included | Time: 00:55:37
Modern Electric Texas Blues, Jazz-Blues, Rhythm & Blues | Label: Blue Thumb | # 547 536-2

Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown was 74 when he recorded American Music, Texas Style, and the Texas bluesman made it clear that he still had plenty of energy. On this CD, Brown really emphasizes his love of jazz. Young hard bop players like trumpeter Nicholas Payton and alto saxman Wes Anderson are on board, and the veteran singer/guitarist offers no less than three standards from Duke Ellington's repertoire ("I'm Beginning to See the Light," "Don't Get Around Much Anymore," and son Mercer Ellington's "Things Ain't What They Used to Be") and two classics from Charlie Parker's years with Jay McShann ("Hootie Blues," "Jumpin' the Blues"). Meanwhile, the jazz influence is hard to miss on such fast jump blues as "Rock My Blues Away" and "Without Me Baby." Brown's voice is thinner than it used to be, but his guitar playing is as energetic as ever. While this CD isn't definitive, it's a good, solid effort that Brown can be proud of.

Carl Allen - Testimonial (1995)
EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 439 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 164 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included
Genre: Post-Bop, Straight-Ahead Jazz | Label: Atlantic Jazz | # 82755-2 | Time: 01:06:43

Allen's a decent though hardly extraordinary mainstream drummer who here leads an all-star neo-bop contingent in a set of standards and originals. Nothing surprising about the general conservatism of the date, given the personnel -- Vincent Herring on alto sax, Nicholas Payton on trumpet, and Cyrus Chestnut on organ, to name a few. There's also nothing in particular wrong with the music, which is heartily played and deeply felt. Nothing, that is, except for the fact that it's covering ground that's been pretty much trampled into dust. It's a pleasant-enough listen, however, and since Cannonball Adderley isn't around to make albums like this anymore, maybe it's a good thing that musicians like these are. On the other hand, as long as guys like Johnny Griffin, Joe Henderson, and Phil Woods still walk the planet, the need is somewhat diminished.
