Happy Days
Release Date: 11/11/2020
Format: CD
List Price: (A20) $20.98 

Bert Ambrose, was perhaps more qualified than any of his fellow Britons to direct a British band in the fashionable, accepted, demanded, American style-he had trained in New York as a young violinist and had led a band in the Palais Royal, on New York’s Broadway, up to the time an American violinist named Paul Whiteman and his band replaced him-yet apart from a few unremarkable records in 1923, he made none until just after opening at the May Fair Hotel in London on March 28th, 1927. The original personnel was almost all American; but by the autumn of 1928, only banioist Joe Brannelly and trumpeter Sylvester Ahola were American. The very day the ?rst track on this record was made saw the entry into Ambrose’s band of a third young American, clarinetist and multi-saxophonist Danny Polo, from Clinton, Indiana. Between them, Ahola and Polo brought to the Ambrose band just that touch of American know-how that distinguished it from the others; spare a Word in praise of the mellow,- silky voice of Lou Abelardo, the singer on eleven of these numbers. He was an American who arrived in London in the. summer of 1929, remained for nearly two years, then returned to the States, where he made a few more records with rather indifferent bands, and vanished. Dark-haired, moustachioed and handsome, his gentle voice must make him, half a century later, a strong contender for the claim to being the ?rst dance-band crooner, certainly in England! His Ambrose replacement was Londoner Sam Browne, an exemplary vocalist with excellent diction and a good sense of musicianship, whose career spanned two full decades and more. It will be seen that almost all the songs in this album are from now rare ?lms or stage productions.

Guitarist Jim Campilongo's critically acclaimed LP is back. JazzTimes wrote "... you've got the makings of a very twisted guitar hero who deserves worshipping. Clever, crafty, quirky and cool…”. Mix Magazine wrote “…from his almost Hendrix-like aggression on the opener, “Backburner,” to the airy “Blues for Roy,” to the bittersweet solo performance of “When You Wish Upon a Star” that closes the album, the tunes are unified by Campilongo's musical soul and character…” The band features Stephan Crump - acoustic bass, Tony Mason - drums and percussion with acoustic guitarist Steve Cardenas featured on “Orange” resulted in Ink KC proclaiming “…Orange is a record that will have guitar geeks' jaws on the floor, but it also presents enough moments of absolute beauty that listeners with no particular interest in the instrument itself will find plenty to love…”. Meticulously recorded on analog and mastered for vinyl, “Orange” is a must have from the Campilongo catalog. Orange translucent vinyl. (Previously deleted: 5/1/15. Original release date: 11/13/12)

He later became co-leader of the band. The popularity he attained while with Heidt’s band allowed him to leave the band in 1944 and form his own band, The Frankie Carle Orchestra. His band disbanded after 1955 and he performed mainly as a soloist thereafter. From the 1950s until the 1980s, Carle performed as a single artist and maintained a close following of loyal fans.

One song which he made his own was The Day Isn’t Long Enough. Gene Rowland arranged it for him in 1950. The following year Ken Hanna handed in his score of The Day Isn’t Long Enough.

Live At The Berlin Philharmonic, 1977
Release Date: 1/15/2021
Format: CD
List Price: (A20) $20.98 

"(The Brecker Brothers) comprised a blistering front line. Galper was in aggressive form, playing with an energy reminiscent of McCoy Tyner, a spirit of embellishment reminiscent of Art Tatum and a harmonic knowledge reminiscent of Bill Evans. Dockery and Moses formed a heart-pounding tandem." - JAZZTIMES. Captured during a pivotal, trailblazing period of his five decade career, pianist Hal Galper had come off the road with the Cannonball Adderly Quintet looking to establish his new working band. Pulling in Michael & Randy Brecker, who he had recorded & worked with in the early '70s, along with bassist Wayne Dockery and drummer Bob Moses, Galper set up Sunday matinees at NY's Sweet Basil jazz club for a year to woodshed the group concept and new compositions. In the studio, 1977's "Reach Out" displayed an astonishingly original collective, all matching Galper's chance-taking, high-spirited, free-wheeling approach to music making. 1979's "Speak With a Single Voice" captured the energy of the quintet live, but on this 1977 Berlin Jazz Festival performance, the band shifts into an other-worldly overdrive. From the opening salvos of Galper's "Now Here This," the mission is defined - jazz giants, in the prime of their youth, set free to blow, pushed to the limits by Galper's facility, full-bodied sound, and fertile imagination.

Beyond Other Stories
Release Date: 1/15/2021
Format: CD
List Price: (A15) $15.98 

"What comes out when Norway and Cuba team up musically: earthy bass, filigree rhythms, melancholy, charm, humor - and an almost unbelievable lightness." Badische-Zeitung (Germany). Norwegian vocalist/composer Grete Skarpeid's "Beyond Other Stories" is contemporary word painting at its finest, with rhythmic contours beautifully enhanced by a quartet of master musicians, led by Cuban pianist Aruán Ortiz. Skarpeid draws us into the interior landscape of life with an eerily beautiful sense of freedom in her voice, mixing melancholy and joy, vulnerability and splendor. Ortiz's beautifully crafted arrangements of variety and sensuousness, are captured in every caressed phrase by Skarpeid. The music shines from the ethereal magnificence of "Singing Again," which sets to music a poem by the noted Norwegian poet Olav H. Hauge, through the feelings of spiritual loss evoked in "Adam and Eve," to the existential weightlessness of "Flying High." The unlikely musical partnership of Grete and Aruán began by happenstance when Ortiz passed through Grete's remote hometown while touring Norway with Don Byron. Grete shared some of her original songs with Ortiz, who instantly fell in love with her music and encouraged her to write more, later collaborating in New York on Skarpeid's first album, "My Songs" in 2016. "Skarpeid fills us with so much joy as she reveals herself to be an artist of the first order..." - Raul da Gama.

Layton and Creamer contributed songs to many Broadway shows. Turner then formed a cabaret act with Clarence Johnstone in 1922 which sold over ten million records. While performing in Palm Beach,Florida, they were heard by Lord and Lady Mountbatten who suggested that they bring their act to Britain, which they did in 1924. All went well in London. Layton and Johnstone made over one thousand recordings. During World War II he entertained the troops and ran the gauntlet of bombs to reach Variety theatres and BBC radio broadcasts. In the 1950s he garnered new enthusiasts by appearing on television and was still popular in Variety theatres. In the 1960s he had his own BBC radio show.

Second Wave

List Price: (A15) $15.98 

Five brilliant and focused musicians who against odds imposed by history and impossibility, have risen to the occasion to create a recording that provides depth, joy and emotional outreach in times of isolation and hardship. Developing their musical voices on the Seattle jazz scene, bassist Ben Feldman and saxophonist Santosh Sharma moved to New York for school and opportunity, while drummer Xavier Lecouturier, pianist Dylan Hayes and guitarist Martin Budde became invaluable creatives in Northwest music circles. Sidelined from various tours in 2020, the five ended up gathering in Alaska, learning to fly planes, composing, playing, and discovering that as a quintet, the joy of music and creation was rekindled, the weight of the moment lifted. Setting up in an airplane hangar, the quintet live-streamed performances through the summer and with their new compositions in tow, self-recorded and produced "Second Wave." The commonality of language acquired through hours of musical conversation between this group of friends quickly rose to fruition, producing sublime results for the listener.

(5% DISCOUNT THRU 1-22-21) Following on from Morphogenic (DiN41) & Dystopia (DiN56) this new album builds on their previous work creating imaginary Synthwave soundtracks. Bakis Sirros, the mastermind behind Parallel Worlds, provides the skittering rhythmic backdrop which he and Bessell overlay ominous bass lines, twisting melodies and sound design that recall a shadow of the 1980's John Carpenter film scores. Bessell also adds his unique guitar style that he uses in his other well known side project with the synth quartet Node. Both musicians make extensive use of modular synth systems but in very different ways that perfectly blend together in these eight atmospheric tracks. The duo of Bessell and Sirros have a unique sound unlike anything else in the world of electronic music. "Phosphenes" presents another chance to enter their darkly twisted sonic world.

Back To Those Charleston Days

Format: CD
List Price: (A20) $20.98 

By now most people know the story of Paul Whiteman, born in Denver in 1890 who began his working life as a cabdriver, but had studied violin in his younger days and before long was offered the position of first violin in the Denver Symphony Orchestra - only getting into dance music to spite someone who he’d had a disagreement with earlier. He was referred to as the man who made a lady out of jazz. Well it may have been excellent dance music, but hardly jazz. What ever anyone says, it has stood the test of time and all of the music here was not recorded until the 1950s. Hi-fi had arrived and everyone wanted to recreate their successes in the new sensational sound. Whiteman and Reser dug out their old scores and put together the same instrumentations as the originals. Harry Reser was a very seasoned banjo player considered the best by fellow musicians, but his re-activated sound still shows how good Whiteman was-right up to the end. And speaking of the end we had just enough time in hand to brief you what was probably Whitemans best waxing of the fabulous rhapsody in blue which Gershwin created for him back in 1924.

"Hard charging, high octane stuff that never lets you down, or even comes up for air, this is a must for big band fans...Killer stuff." - Midwest Record. Saxophonist, composer, arranger Greg Yasinitsky created his YAZZ Band project as a laboratory for his contemporary, original big band compositions. Made up of mostly Pacific Northwest-based improvisors and ensemble veterans, "New Normal" reflects the times when gathering as a group is not an option. Recorded ensemble tracks from before COVID-19 emerged were combined with recordings done in isolation from faraway outposts including Los Angeles, Baton Rouge, and Italy, allowing for some dynamic new musical options to be explored. From the blazing "G.P." and "Diva," to the heartfelt "Song for Laura," or the funk of "Blues for Brecker," Yasinitsky's YAZZ Band offers a wide ranging set of hard-swinging and joyful original music.
