    Bill Evans Trio

    Portrait In Jazz

      Portrait in Jazz was Bill Evans' third album as a leader, following New Jazz Conceptions (1956) and Everybody Digs Bill Evans (1958). It was also Evans' first studio album with his legendary trio, featuring Scott LaFaro and Paul Motian. The repertoire here consists of standards (all of them treated in Evans' very personal style) plus two originals, "Peri's Scope" – premiered on Portrait in Jazz, and "Blue in Green," which was co-composed by Miles Davis. Bill first recorded the latter composition in March 1959 with Miles for the classic album, Kind of Blue.

      Nina Simone

      My Baby Just Cares For Me

        Limited edition 180gram premium vinyl pressing and 3 bonus tracks. Released in June 1958, this album (originally issued under the title Little Girl Blue on Bethlehem BCP-6028) was Nina Simone’s first studio recording ever.

        Made when she was 25-years old, the album was a huge success and led to a tremendous career that would yield over 80 studio sessions. It was originally issued on the Bethlehem label and features the singer/pianist backed by bassist Jimmy Bond (who had been a member of the Chet Baker Quartet among other groups) and drummer Albert “Tootie” Heath (one of the celebrated Heath brothers, along with saxophonist Jimmy Heath, and bassist Percy Heath).

        Many of the tracks from this LP would become true classics, among them her perennial versions of “My Baby Just Cares for Me” and “I Loves You, Porgy”. Simone’s piano is well featured throughout the LP, but “Central Park Blues” and “Good Bait” are the only purely instrumental tracks.

        Chet Baker & Bill Evans

        Alone Together

          The most significant aspect of this album, which first appeared as 'Chet - The Lyrical Trumpet of Chet Baker', is the interaction between Chet Baker and Bill Evans, two perennial jazz stars who only rarely recorded together. By the time this album was made, Chet was known as much for his singing as for his trumpet playing. This LP, however, is entirely instrumental and consists of nine ballads performed in the styles of hard bop to cool jazz.

          The last track, 'I Could Have Danced All Night' (included as a bonus) is from Chet Baker's 'Best of Lerner & Loewe' album, which featured Bill Evans on four of its tracks. They were the recordings that Baker and Evens made together.


          Alone Together
          How High The Moon
          It Never Entered My Mind
          Tis Autumn
          If You Could See Me Now
          September Song
          You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To
          Time On My Hands
          You And The Night And The Music
          I Could Have Danced All Night

          John Coltrane

          Blue Train - 2022 Repress

            Tenor saxophonist John Coltrane's 1957 studio session in Hackensack, New Jersey produced all the material for the legendary album, Blue Train. The album marked the first time that Trane was given the opportunity to select his own sidemen for a date. He made effective use of his newfound freedom, enlisting the support of trumpeter Lee Morgan, trombonist Curtis Fuller, pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Philly Joe Jones. When asked in a 1960 radio interview which was his favourite of all the albums he recorded up to that point, Coltrane was quick to reply, Blue Train.

            Bill Evans Trio

            Sunday At The Village Vanguard

              One of the best albums by the ill-fated trio of Bill Evans with bassist Scott LaFaro and drummer Paul Motian.

              Penguin Guide To Jazz review:
              "All the Vanguard music is informed by an extra sense of discovery, as ifthe musicians were suddenly aware of what they were on to and werecelebrating the achievement. This is music which continues to provokemarvel and endless study." - Richard Cook & Brian Morton

              Ella Fitzgerald

              Sings The Duke Ellington Songbook - The Best Of The Small Group Sessions - 2022 Reissue

                Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald's paths had surely crossed many times during the Thirties, Forties, and early Fifties. However, no recorded trace of the two legendary musicians collaborating existed until 1957, when they participated on a series of big band sessions for Norman Granz. The sessions were somewhat chaotic and intermittent though, primarily because of Ellington's busy schedule and lack of time to prepare arrangements. As a result, the big band sessions were padded out it with various all-star sextettes, as represented on the LP.

                Ella Fitzgerald & Duke Ellington

                Ella & Duke - The Best Of The Big Band Sessions - 2022 Reissue

                  Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald's paths had crossed many times during the Thirties, Forties, and early Fifties, but no recorded trace of the two legendary musicians collaborating existed until 1957, when they would come together to produce a series of sessions which include the music on this LP.

                  It may seem incredible that not a single previous air shot of Ella with Ellington survives, but Duke had a tight band and didn't frequently play with musicians outside of his orchestra. Ella, on the other hand, after coming to fame with the Chick Webb orchestra in the late Thirties, was taken under the wing of Norman Granz's, from which point on she rarely recorded with anyone other than artists contracted to Granz, which included many of the greatest jazzmen of all time. Because of Ellington's contractual commitments and incredible busy schedule, the sessions where fraught with problems and intermittent delays. Thankfully though, under Granz's supervision and stoicism, the Ella-Duke project was completed.

                  Ella Fitzgerald And Louis Armstrong

                  Ella And Louis Again

                    This was the second album pairing Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong produced by Norman Granz for his Verve label. After recording a series of duets in the late 1940s for Decca, Ella and Louis were invited by Granz in 1956 to make a series of sessions which would result in the memorable 'Ella and Louis'. Such was the commercial success of the LP, the formula was repeated the following year with the making of 'Ella and Louis Again'. Like its predecessor, it received both critical acclaim and commercial success.
