DISCOVERY! A fascinating, previously unissued, Serge Chaloff live set!! His early death and being considered among the very few real masters of his instrument make every bit of the music he recorded a precious treasure.
These live albums document Coleman's further move away from musical form and his increasing embrace of free improvisation as a direct line to emotional and artistic expression.
Presented here, FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER ON CD, is the complete original Jon Hendricks LP "Fast Livin’ Blues" , which showcases the singer backed by a small group including such stars as Joe Newman, Pony Poindexter, Billy Mitchell, and Al Grey.
This 2-CD set compiles Miles’ only two early soundtracks "Ascenseur pour l’échafaud" and the 1959 TV film "The Sound of Miles Davis" , along with the trumpeter’s recordings that were used in various different films, among them his recent biopic "Miles Ahead".
We’d like to highlight him because of his latest album. Little Giant Still Life is an exciting new meeting between the acclaimed emerging talents of The Westerlies and the young Philadelphia-based drummer Anwar Marshall, all under the compositional vision of the trumpeter and composer. The music contained herein is grooving, swinging and lyrical but somehow distinct from all his previous works. Don’t miss it!
The most influential jazz albums according to the critics of Downbeat Magazine.

Could this be, arguably, the best Dave Brubeck quartet concert there is? There is certainly magic in this live performance. Just hear the laughter, the interjections, the very life of it.Previously unreleased, the mastering is excellent and the CD comes in a beautiful gatefold digipak with a nice booklet. It is a must to any Brubeck collection.
