5.0 out of 5 stars French compilation, par excellance: Jazz Trumpet at best..., 12 April 2014

This review is from: Jazz Trompette (Audio CD)
Very enjoyable selection of jazz trumpet. Tracks listed on amazon.fr, and have fun tracking the personnel. There couldn't be a better varied selection, but the French really know their jazz, mainly because they didn't have the MU ban on Americans...... .

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly Like......, 4 Sept. 2012
A daunting task for Alan Barnes and Ken Matheson (or anybody) to produce a cd of Benny Carter's music, but the great man must have been looking down with the big smile of approval as on the cover. The music is exactly "right", not a copy but a truly inspired tribute.

Fred Anderson - Timeless - Live at the Velvet Lounge [DVD] [2006]

Price: £13.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The Anderson - Bankhead - Drake Trio Live 2005, 7 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
a perfect club session at the old Velvet Lounge. Four long performances 12 to 24 minutes of intense improvisation a la Fred Anderson Trio. Excellent sound and vision and a necessary acquisition for anyone appreciative of Fred Anderson's music. On the Delmark label of course, with an interview and discocraphy, enough said. The cd is DE 558 which I didn't have....

5.0 out of 5 stars The LAST COMPLETE Concert with Johnny Coles...., 13 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The next day was in Paris and Johnny Coles did not complete the concert as he was ill. The rest of the tour was without him.

So, even though it appears to be an airshot, it is very listenable, and absolutely necessary to anyone with an interest in this unique Mingus group.....

Buy it......

5.0 out of 5 stars Blakey at his best........, 13 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Blakey at his best........ But see my review of the "Live in Zurich 1958". Same band, but this is in a Paris club and the Zurich in a concert hall. Although the club date has the intimate(wild)atmosphere,the audience in both venues are equally ecstatic about the music......
The recording in both venues is excellent for live recordings.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Words almost escape me......, 13 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Words almost escape me - for years the "Au Club St. Germain 1958" recording has been one of my all time greats, and now a repeat in Zurich. From the same book, but in a bigger venue, the band excelling themselves, and the audience also.

I wonder why we were deprived of all this great music in the U.K. (don't answer that).

If you half like any of the musicians, this is absolutely indispensible, and if you missed it get the "Au Club....".

5.0 out of 5 stars BIRD & DIZ - HOTHOUSE & DIZ QUINTET & DIZ FEATURE WITH SEXTET, 1 Feb. 2012

diz and bird play the famous "hot house" and then diz with the leo wright/lalo schifrin quintet play a set and the then a feature for diz at a concert.....

no complaints from this direction......
