CD


4.70 5

Dorothy Donegan tickles the ivories with a mighty nice touch – on a set that shows why she was quite a popular attraction on the 50s scene! Donegan's got a way of approaching the piano with a heck of a lot of vitality – really working the keyboard with great imagination, moving up and down with tremendous dexterity as she opens up a tune! There's no tricks or gimmicks, though – and although the playing has a lot of vitality, it's also beautifully composed, too – just the right balance to keep things swinging, even when the playing is complex. Titles include "September Song", "St Louis Blues", "Love For Sale", "Lullaby Of Birdland", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", and "Dancing On The Ceiling".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Breakfast At Tiffany's
Reprise (Japan), 1962. New Copy
One of the grooviest albums ever recorded by guitarist Barney Kessel – a sweet reworking of Henry Mancini's fabulous music for Breakfast At Tiffanys! The set's got a warm feel and more than a bit of bossa nova inspiration – similar to some of the other Kessel and Shorty Rogers projects ... CD
Philly Joe Jones & Elvin Jones Together!
Atlantic (Japan), 1961. New Copy
A stunner of an album – and one that definitely draws plenty power from the double drummers in the lead! The set's way different than most of Elvin Jones' other work of the time – and is even more hard-hitting than some of the Philly Joe Jones sessions too – and, unusual for ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1963. New Copy
A great album recorded in 1963 for Atlantic – one of our favorite ever! Jack Wilson's one of our favorite piano players, and we rave about him all the time on these pages – and one of the reasons why we love him so much is that he was often accompanied by Roy Ayers, who started out his ... CD
Soul Summit – Vols 1 & 2
Prestige (Germany), 1962. New Copy
The brain trust of soul jazz in the early 60s – led by tenorist Gene Ammons on both albums! Soul Summit Volume one features Ammons and Sonny Stitt on tenor, plus Jack McDuff on Hammond – a definite soul summit for the time – with 3 top-shelf players in the lead, all getting ... CD
Trombone Jazz Samba/Samba Para Dos
Verve (Germany), 1962. New Copy
Pure genius throughout – two great albums on a single CD! Trombone Jazz Samba is an overlooked gem from Bob Brookmeyer – and a set that fits in strongly with the other Verve Records bossa nova albums of the 60s! Bob's the center star on valve trombone, but the record's awash in work ... CD
Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy
Our favorite album ever from Tyrone Davis – even if it's completely different than most of his other work too! The set's got a wonderfully smooth feel right from the start – a mellow-grooving, slow-stepping approach that works perfectly for Tyrone's wonderful vocals – pushing ... CD
