And Piano! was released to great critical acclaim in 1969, and it is a true gem in Nina Simone's body of work. It has remained a rarity over the years. This is Nina Simone stripped bare; an introspective, intimate album about death, reincarnation, loneliness and love.
Tale Spinnin' is the band's fifth studio album. They recorded the album together with Leon "Ndugu" Chancler on drums. It marks a turning point for the band, as they applied more electronic influences on this record. This unknown gem can be considered as one of their finest pieces of music. The songs became more melodic and more structured, yet there is still some of their wild jamming on this record. With funky bass rhythms and deep grooves, it's a mixture of jazz and folk songs. Altogether it's a diverse and groovy work of their jazz fusion.
This is a very special version of the most influential (Jazz) album ever. We present the original album in remastered form plus an extra LP containing 2 tracks that weren't available on vinyl before.
Music IS marks the first solo album from Bill Frisell since the release of Ghost Town, 18 years ago. The focus of the album is on the telling of musical stories from Frisell's original and inimitable perspective: some of the interpretations being naked, exposed and truly solo, while others are more orchestrated through overdubbed layering and the use of his unparalleled approach to looping. Music IS has debuted at #1 on the US Jazz Albums Charts.
Louis Armstrong was one of the most influential figures in the jazz scene. As a trumpeter, singer and composer he recorded some of the most famous songs the world would ever hear.
The album Dorothy's Harp contains covers, two Brazilian styled compositions and two songs written by Dorothy Ashby herself, displaying her craft on the harp with some great bongo work.
The 1959 courtroom crime drama classic Anatomy of a Murder, directed by Otto Preminger, is based on the best-selling homonymous novel written by Michigan Supreme Court Justice John D. Voelker under the pen name Robert Traver. Its score is composed by Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn. It won three Grammy Awards - Best Performance by a Dance Band, Best Musical Composition First Recorded and Released in 1959, and Best Sound Track Album.
Placebo's eponymous third album is glossy, elaborate Benelux Jazz-Rock which could be labelled Library music as well - having themes that could easily accompany a cult 70's detective series. Its seductive rhythms, combined with tasteful arrangements, make this LP difficult to walk away from. The grooves go deeper compared to their earlier works and the solos are intense and unique.
In the spring of 1954 Jazz-great Dave Brubeck did a tour of North American college campuses. Paul Desmond(alto sax), Bob Bates(bass), and Joe Dodge(drums) joined him and their support of Brubeck's uniformly flawless, ultimately producing what many consider as the most memorable music in the artist's canon.
