Albert Mangelsdorff: Albert Mangelsdorff And His Friends

Read "Albert Mangelsdorff And His Friends" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The afterlife for Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer's storied MPS Records has been tough to track. After Brunner-Schwer sold the rights to Philips in the early '80s, the label changed hands several times--Polydor picked it up and passed it through a subsidiary, Universal Music Group acquired its holdings, Speakers Corner Records took over on the vinyl side of ...

Dominic Duval: Follow Your Melody

Read "Dominic Duval: Follow Your Melody" reviewed by Maxim Micheliov

In memory of Dominic Duval: 1945-2016. This article was first published in October 2010.

Bassist Dominic Duval is a mystery to many--even to those interested in free music. Seemingly emerging out of nowhere in the mid-1990s, over the course of 15 years he has built a formidable discography, firmly establishing him as one of ...

Francy Boland - Kenny Clarke - Jimmy Woode: Playing with the Trio

Read "Playing with the Trio" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

È davvero encomiabile l'attività dell'etichetta milanese Ishtar, che affianca alla produzione di artisti contemporanei un pregevole lavoro di riedizione di album da tempo introvabili. Ora, sotto il marchio della sussidiaria Schema Rearward, pubblica un raro disco del trio di Francy Boland con Kenny Clarke e Jimmy Woode che già all'epoca (parliamo del 1967) ebbe scarsa diffusione ...

Shawnn Monteiro: To Carmen with Love

Read "To Carmen with Love" reviewed by Edward Blanco

Tributes to legendary jazz greats of the past dot the landscape of today's music, but few can actually boast a direct connection to the artist of homage. Singer Shawnn Monteiro--long influenced by the beautiful voice of pianist and vocalist Carmen McRae--is an exception. Her father and godfather, bassist Jimmy Woode and trumpeter Clark Terry, respectively, both ...

Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis & Johnny Griffin Quintet: Tough Tenors Again 'N' Again

Read "Tough Tenors Again 'N' Again" reviewed by John Kelman

It's been over a year since Promising Music's last series of lovingly remastered and repackaged titles from the classic MPS catalog of the 1960s/70s, but they're back with two 2012 reissues that, once again, demonstrate the breadth and depth of a German label that ran the gamut from straight-ahead to fusion, and from down-and-dirty blues to ...

The Best of Nathan Davis '65-'76
Jazzman
2009



The concept of a “Best Of" album seems like it should be set aside for those musicians who have entered the popular consciousness to the degree that a sampler disc would be an easy sell. In jazz, canonical ...
