VariousJazz Chillout ... CD
Blue Note/EMI, 2002. Used 2 CDs ... $5.99
New and old Blue Note collide in this jam-packed 2CD set of tracks! Forget the "chillout" in the title, because a good portion of the set is real jazz from the old days, and the rest is newer material, based around the older ideals of the Blue Note idiom. Together, the music makes for a nice little package of tracks, shifting with ease from classic to future, stepping through a wider array of catalog than you might expect. Titles include "More Than This" by Charlie Hunter with Norah Jones, "Loungin" by Guru with Donald Byrd, "She's A Lady" by Patricia Barber, "Sun At Midnight" by Jason Moran, "Slow Bombing The World" by Marc Jordan, "Flute Down" by Karl Denson, "Off The Record" by Ronny Jordan, "Harvest Moon" by Cassandra Wilson, "God Bless The Child" by Stanley Turrentine, "Cantaloop (inst)" by US3, "Light My Fire" by Julie London, "Ashes" by Greg Osby, "Slow Drag" by Donald Byrd, "Soul Manifesto" by Rodney Jones, "Everything I Do Gonna Be Funky" by Lou Donaldson, and "It's Your Thing" by Grant Green. 24 tracks on 2CDs!

✨✧ Stefano Di BattistaStefano Di Battista ... CD
Blue Note, 2001. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The US debut of modern reed genius Stefano Di Battista – a young player who'd recorded a bit for Blue Note in Europe, and who's breaking out here in a very soulful style on his first American album. Stefano plays alto and soprano with a post-Coltrane spirituality, mixed with a hint of sweetness, ala Grover Washington Jr, but in a way that retains more of an edge. Here, he's blowing in a group that includes Americans Jacky Terrason on piano and Elvin Jones on drums, plus some occasional guest work by Italian trumpeter Flavio Boltro, another Blue Note European artist. The set's got a strongly modal feel – a bit like some of Gary Bartz's straighter work – and titles include "Hall", "Little Red Ribbon", "Adderley", "Elvin's Song", "Nico's Dream", "Johnny's Time", "Chicago 187", and "Song For Flavia".
