Out Of The Blue (OTB) – Inside Track (1987)
Blue Note Digital Recording | 1987 | Jazz | EAC RIP | FLAC+CUE+LOG+HQ-Covers (400Dpi) | 245Mb+8Mb

This is the second of four recordings by Out of the Blue, a band that helped spotlight the talents of its up-and-coming members (trumpeter Michael Mossman, altoist Kenny Garrett, teanor saxophonist Ralph Bowen, pianist Harry Pickens, bassist Robert Hurst and drummer Ralph Peterson), features the sextet playing two originals apiece by Mossman, Bowen and Peterson, plus "Hot House." The music is essentially hard bop, and it is particularly interesting to hear Garrett stretching out shortly before he joined Miles Davis' band. Excellent music in Blue Note's 60s tradition !!!

Dave Valentin – The Hawk (1979)
GRP Records Digital Master | 1979 | Jazz Fusion Funk | EAC RIP | FLAC+CUE+LOG+HQ-Covers (400Dpi) | 237Mb+21Mb

After the success of Dave's debut album "Legends", he received acclaim from critics, musicians, and listeners alike. Dave was nominated for the Downbeat Critics Poll 1979 as well as nominated by Latin N.Y. magazine for Best New Flutist. He has appeared at Carnegie Hall, sharing the "S.R.O." bill with Maynard Ferguson and as a featured guest solist with Hubert Laws.
Dave's second album presents the two sides of his cultural experience. Growing up in the South Bronx, his music has both "Funk" and "Latin" roots. This album brings these two sides of Dave Valentin to the forefront. Dave's music is like a hawk......strong, confident and soaring. Details

Yellowjackets – Live Wires (1992)
GRP Records Digital Recording | 1992 | Jazz Fusion | EAC RIP | FLAC+CUE+LOG+HQ-Covers (400Dpi) | 480Mb+9Mb

This album is an excellent summary of the Yellowjackets earlier years. The only thing missing was the Blues/fusion guitar of Robin Ford. Nevertheless, the live renditions of past classics is nothing short of breath-taking, with Bob Mintzer passionately leading the way on all-time favourites Geraldine, Wildlife and Freedomland. Indeed the true potential of the former two tracks was realized on "Live Wires", with Mintzer transforming them beyond recognition when compared to the sterile studio recorded versions of "The Spin" and "Four Corners".

Erroll Garner – The Erroll Garner Collection 1 – Easy To Love (Comp. 1988)
EmArcy | Comp. 1988| Jazz | EAC RIP | FLAC+CUE+LOG+HQ-Covers (400Dpi) | 251Mb+14Mb

Erroll Garner continues to radiate a palpably felt and indescribable kind of joy in an otherwise very confused and disturbed world. "Easy to Love" is a must have for all those want to experience that joy. Great cuts like his "Somebody Stole My Gal," his humorous yet awkardly transcendent tearjearker on "September Song", his hard-swinging rendition of Cole Porter's "Easy To Love" and a hearwarming rendition of "I Hadn't Anyone Till You". "Lover, Come Back To Me" is a great swinger while "As Time Goes By" is an emotional and impactful tour-de-force by the magnificent Mr. Garner. "Out of Nowhere" is a ballad that has been overlooked for such a long time. His version of "Taking a Chance On Love" shows Garner's awesome ability to transmit the personality of a song. He plays as though he is playing the part of a man who just got dumped by a girl but adopts a carefree, confident attitude of "Let's give it another go at love, plenty of fish in the sea you know!!! I can almost guarantee that as you hear this tune you will feel a jaunty confidence and joie de vivre that is singularly Garner's. A great Garner CD. Worth many listenings!! Details

Elektra – Warner-Pioneer Japan | 1983 | Jazz Pop Soul | EAC RIP | FLAC+CUE+LOG+HQ-Covers (400Dpi) | 252Mb+14Mb

Similar to Grover Washington Jr.'s Winelight album this album is not for jazz purists but for those who want beautiful arrangements, some with a funky beat, some soulful and romantic. This is perfect music for a dinner party or a romantic interlude.
This is the epitome of "Smooth Jazz", that is to say, very commercial and very listenable. I know, this is much more "pop" and "soul" music than jazz, but for the right purpose it's ejoyable music !! Details

Small wonder this final Isle of Wight Festival became a semi-legendary rock weekend - the Who played it as though they'd been reborn for the occasion. In a sense, they had been reborn - 1969, their exhaustive, no questions asked breakout year (thanks to "Tommy," of course) went off with a few hitches and almost a collapse (Pete Townshend, suffering back trouble, almost broke down but for some medical relief enough to get the band through Woodstock). But by the time they hit the Isle of Wight (where they'd been an equal hit the previous year), they were, seemingly, revived and energised to overflowing, because they cranked out a set beyond even their own usual standard of firepower. This set has the incontrovertible proof that the legend of the Who's white heat at that final Isle of Wight wasn't hyperbolic.................. Details

Telarc Jazz Digital Recording | 1993| Jazz | EAC RIP | FLAC+CUE+LOG+HQ-Covers (400Dpi) | 307Mb+16Mb

Although it had been more than 40 years since his debut recording, pianist Ahmad Jamal's playing was as viable as ever in the 1990s. Teamed up with bassist John Heard and drummer Yoron Israel for this live Telarc CD, Jamal plays a particularly inspired repertoire that includes "All the Things You Are," Clifford Brown's "Daahoud," John Handy's "Dance to the Lady" and "Be My Love" among its nine selections. Jamal's style had developed since his early days, but his basic approach was unchanged while still sounding quite fresh. This date is an excellent example of Ahmad Jamal's unique sound and highly appealing music in the '90s. Details

Lionel Hampton – Vintage Hampton – Rare Recordings With All-Star Guests (1977)
Telarc Telarchive | 1977 | Jazz | EAC RIP | FLAC+CUE+LOG+HQ-Covers(400Dpi) | 416Mb+17Mb

During 1977, vibraphonist Lionel Hampton had the opportunity to record full albums with all-star groups headed by Charles Mingus (a nonet also including Woody Shaw and Gerry Mulligan), Mulligan, Dexter Gordon, Buddy Rich, Teddy Wilson and Earl Hines, among many others. This is another album from these sessions and is highly enjoyable !!! Details
