Ron Carter & Jim Hall - Live at Village West (1982)
EAC rip (secure mode) | FLAC+CUE+LOG | Scans | 249 MB (+5%) | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 142 Mb (+5%)
Genre: Jazz | Label: Concord Jazz | Original Release Date: 1982

The second live collaboration between bassist Ron Carter and guitarist Jim Hall follows their first recording together by a decade, but their chemistry together is every bit as strong, if not improved. Other than the occasional sound of the bar cash register, there is little in the way of background noise as the audience remains transfixed to the intricate improvisations of the duo, along with their solid comping for one another. The fare includes brilliant renditions of standards such as "All the Things You Are" and "Embraceable You"....

Javon Jackson - Pleasant Valley (1995)
EAC rip (secure mode) | FLAC+CUE+LOG | Scans | 374 MB (+5%) | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 133 Mb (+5%)
Genre: Jazz | Label: Blue Note | Original Release Date: 1995


Tenor saxophonist Javon Jackson and cohorts have found plenty of fertile ground in Pleasant Valley. Using Larry Goldings's down-home organ as a backdrop and Dave Stryker's light-fingered guitar as a foil, Jackson has managed to evoke the creative days of early fusion (in particular, the Tony Williams Lifetime) while fitting in perfectly with the lounge-jazz mainstream. Jackson has a dollop of funk in his sophisticated tone, which he adds judiciously, giving a little juice to his complex, serpentine lines...

Ron Carter And Jim Hall - Telephone (1985)
EAC rip (secure mode) | FLAC+CUE+LOG | Scans | 200 MB (+5%) | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 112 Mb (+5%)
Genre: Jazz; Contemporary Jazz | Label: Concord Jazz | Original Release Date: 1985


The third live CD featuring bassist Ron Carter and guitarist Jim Hall in a duo setting is yet another gem. This 1984 concert, taped at the Concord Jazz Festival, kicks off with Carter's lively blues "Telephone," which gives the pair an opportunity to tightrope walk in unison on the song's tricky theme as well as show off their individual chops as soloists. Hall's "Chorale and Dance" is a two- part composition that begins in a very formal, semi-classical vein before segueing into a Latin setting. They tackle the standard "Alone Together"....

John Scofield - Works For Me (2000)
EAC rip (secure mode) | FLAC+CUE+LOG | Scans | 474 MB (+5%) | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 173 Mb (+5%)
Genre: Jazz; Jazz Fusion | Label: Verve | Original Release Date: 2000


John Scofield describes the ensemble on WORKS FOR ME, made up of young jazz stars like alto saxophonist Kenny Garrett, pianist Brad Mehldau, and bassist Christian McBride, as his "one-time-only dream band." Anchoring it all, moreover, is the grand elder statesman Billy Higgins on drums. In honor of this talented company, or maybe because of it, Scofield returns to the straight-ahead swing style (albeit with a few trademark funky episodes), that he has periodically pursued throughout his career.

John Scofield - Still Warm (1986) (Repost)
EAC rip (secure mode) | FLAC+CUE+LOG | Scans | 275 MB (+5%) | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 102 Mb (+5%)
Genre: Jazz Fusion | Label: Gramavision; Rykodisc | Original Release Date: 1986


One of John Scofield's finest mid-1980s outings as a leader, STILL WARM finds the revered jazz guitarist settling into a set of funk-tinged fusion. The tight yet adventurous rhythm section of bassist Darryl Jones and drummer Omar Hakim allows Scofield to unfurl his impressively agile six-string lines, which can stray into rock and blues territory. Keyboardist Don Grolnick adds unexpected, sometimes downright strange textures to the compositions, reining in his quirky flourishes to wonderful effect on the delicately beautiful title track.

Earl Klugh - Late Night Guitar (1980)
EAC rip (secure mode) | FLAC+CUE+LOG | Scans | 207 MB (+5%) | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 86 Mb (+5%)
Genre: Jazz Fusion | Label: Blue Note | Original Release Date:1980


This is the perfect setting for acoustic guitarist Earl Klugh, playing strong melodies (including such standards as "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes," "Laura," "Mona Lisa," and "Two for the Road") while joined by strings and several horns in an orchestra arranged and conducted by David Matthews. As usual for a Klugh session, the guitarist sticks mostly to the themes and does not improvise much, as he never considered himself a jazz player; but the overall effect is quite pleasing. ~ Scott Yanow
