Gary Burton spent a great deal of his professional life juggling his duo careers as a bandleader and jazz educator. So it came as no surprise to see him form a brand new group of talented up and coming players inthe eighth such new unit by his count.
Burton's skill on vibes is a given, but his ability to find four impressive young men able to jump right in and perform at a high level also deserves kudos.
The leader first heard guitarist Julian Lage on the Grammy Awards at the tender age of 12; he was just 16 at the time of these sessions and had already appeared with Burton on the earlier CD Generations. Lage, who shows incredible chops without overdoing it, also contributed the easygoing, infectious strut "Walkin' in Music" and "Clarity," a playful duet with Burton.
Vadim Neselovskyi not only is a surprising pianist but a thoughtful composer whose works including the intricate "Prelude for Vibes" and the tense, rapid fire "Get Up and Go" belie his age.

In addition, superbly talented drummer Billy Higgins happened to be in town and was available for LP) legendary recording. Throughout this one day session, this international all-star group was totally inspired.
While the main attraction here is clearly Gordon whose tenor sax sounds as good as ever, the fiery solos by Montoliu, the lithe and limber drumming by Higgins and the authentic bass played by Pedersen contribute to elevate their collective performance to a higher plane. There is not a single weak moment in this exciting record.

As Chick Corea said ""Every drummer wants to play like Gadd because he plays perfect He has brought orchestral and compositional thinking to the drum kit while at the same time having a great imagination and a great ability to swing" Duke's Lullaby from this LP proves that in spades. Bari sax legend Ronnie Cuber was added to the roster during the 80s and the Gadd Gang was born.

In so many ways, the piano trio is really one of the most perfect combinations in jazz. In the right hands, the impression of a much larger group is possible and various combinations of each instrument allow for freshness and variety. It was really a combination of ideas and technology, however. Secondly, the 20 albums eventually issued would ultimately take in some of the more popular styles in addition to obvious jazz sensibilities.
As an added source of inimitability, many of the original records were produced with no pauses between tracks, giving the side of a record album the feel of having someone performing for you right there in your own living room.
Born out an impromptu marketing plan by a small Columbia Records staff inthe Piano Moods series was hatched from the marketing discovery that there were more pianos than phonographs that's record players for all you kids who don't remember vinyl LPs in the homes of postwar America. The 12" LP had been launched a scant two years before and few titles were available.
The Piano Moods series linked 20 albums of the same general type, all of them produced and sequenced by George Avakian, who had created the jazz and pop catalog on LP for Columbia beginning in -- though they were originally released 33 rpm 10" discs to keep the folks with all those 10" 78 rpm discs happy when it came to storage. The sides were cut -- usually -- with no spirals spaces between tunes, giving the side a longer feel than its 17 minutes because the music was continuous.
Most pianists preset their sequences and prepared introductions of the key of the preceding tune that modulated into the key of the next one. Some would cut Know What I Mean? [Take 12-Alternate] - Bill Evans - The Complete Riverside Recordings (Vinyl modes later and have Avakian splice them or, in the case of Teddy Wilson, he would play it straight through as can clearly be heard on this LPand if he felt he flubbed anything, would re-record a tune and have Avakian work the tape magic.
The series was wildly successful as a whole, and most homes had at least a few of these sides and some had many or all. The interesting comment here is that many of these pianists had little or nothing in common with one another.
Last but not least is the man who could -- and did -- play everything, concert virtuoso Stan Freeman. Sides A and B are left intact to preserve the original feeling, attentive listeners will notice that in essence this LP consists of two long tracks.

This extraordinary Brazilian guitarist, composer, and arranger was introduced to music by his mother, a concert pianist who gave him his first lessons. Like his sister, however, he would eventually choose the guitar as his primary instrument.
As a teenager, Almeida witnessed, and participated in, a great deal of civil unrest; the experience galvanized him and fueled a lifelong passion for the politics of his native country. At age 19, he became a performer aboard the Brazilian ocean liner Cuyaba, which enabled him to travel to Europe, hear the legendary Django Reinhardt in Paris, and experience a great deal of foreign culture.

The John Coltrane Quartet Plays Ascension New Thing at Newport In my experience, most RVGs have all the dynamic range of a television broadcast and lead to fatigue much quicker than early McMasters. Unfortunately McMaster has been leaning as heavily on compression as RVG in recent years, but Malcolm Addey, God bless him, is bucking the trend and is still preserving some healthy dynamics.
Anyone else confirm that? I passed on them, just based on cost considerations, but agree it would be wonderful if they could get this stuff out in better sound in the U. Also, the Japanese discs were straight reissues of 10" albums, so no bonus tracks as I recall, and with a U. I do think the sonic upgrades of the Doug Hawkins stuff have indeed been the most remarkable ones in the RVG series so far. Yes, I think you're right Lon. But I could have sworn I saw two separate ones - one that had the cover they used on the U.
CD that brought all the material together, and one with the green cover. You're right though, in both cases there was just the original 10" tracks, no extras. In the Elmo Hope thread the inititator reports that he has the other JRVG; it would reissue just the Trio material, and I've never seen that, don't know if it's recent or a former release.
I believe it may have been a part of the 10" series. Having lived through this problem of Blue Note CD masterings for several years now, I have kinda summed it all up in my mind.
My main conclusion is that it is a shame that, for an outstanding catalog such as Blue Note, there should have been so many poor CD remasterings. OJCs and the box setsit is clear that there is no excuse for all these bad CDs, and that includes the early ones from the late 80s.
It sure gets tiresome, having to grub around for the best version of these classic sessions. And I'm NOT an audiophile. You will not convince me that remastering is difficult for a pro - especially with all the fancy equipment at their disposal. This music is blues-driven. In terms of what has gone on before. You know what I mean? The traditions keep on turning over!
People keep looking rearward for the tradition. The tradition in this music is forward! Not what you did last week, but this week! Cosmic multi-hued blues, perfect for space and time travel.
It is a reality that important to the myth structure of the Tone World chronicle. Re-inventing the process, allowing music to flow through their instruments. Recorded one long hot night in July Sun Ra at the Rhodes, Disco Kid on guitar… deadly funk, heady and grooving.
