Joe Harriott Quintet And Sextet - Southern Horizons
Joe Harriott Quintet And Sextet
Southern Horizons
LP | 1960 | EU | Reissue (Down At Dawn)
13,99 €*
Release:1960 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
This is Harriott on the verge of the free form/abstract period, but here, still anchored in the hard bop mode. This is stylish, elegant, tight, swinging; whatever label of appreciation you want to attach to it, this is still fresh music creation. This record sticks to the quintet line-up of sax, trumpet, piano, bass and drums (as on Movement), but with the added pizzazz of a superb bongos player on a couple of tracks, just to heighten the sense of hepness to the proceedings. Partly original compositions, partly covers (including a dynamic take on Caravan), this was Harriott's first long-playing record as a leader. Personnel : Joe Harriott (Alto Saxophone), Coleridge Goode (Bass), Frank Holder (Bongos), Bobby Orr (Drums), Harry South (Piano), Hank Shaw (Trumpet), Shake Keane (Trumpet, Flugelhorn)

Warm World Of Joao Gilberto
LP | 1963 | EU | Reissue (Down At Dawn)

Release:1963 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
In summer 1958, João Gilberto -an unknown 28 year-old Brazilian guitarist and singer from Bahia- made his recording debut as a singer with two songs "Chega de Saudade" and "Bim Bom." With a new rhythmic feeling, batida, and rich harmonies he laid the basis of the modern Brazilian samba, now known as Bossa Nova. Underpinned by his insouciantly swinging guitar, Joãos seductive, vibratoless vocals caressed both ear and soul in a mesmerizing, highly addictive combination, refreshing and modern. Chega de Saudade was a hit, launching Gilbertos career and the bossa nova craze. Soon, singers and guitarists were trying to imitate him and composers were all on a Desafinado (the second Gilbertos hit) and Chega de Saudade kick. The longawaited renewal of the Brazilian samba was now a fact. Antonio Carlos Jobim said: Gilberto appeared as a light, as a big star in the firmament, in the heavens. He became a focus, because he was pulling the guitar in one way and singing the other way, which created a third thing that was profound. Yes, the guy who brought the Bossa Nova beat to the world was João Gilberto.

McCoy Tyner - Nights Of Ballads & Blues
McCoy Tyner
Nights Of Ballads & Blues
LP | 2020 | EU | Reissue (Down At Dawn)
13,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
As the title implies, this McCoy Tyner release is a low-key, after-hours affair. Far removed from the intensity of work with then-boss John Coltrane, Tyner stretches out on a fine mix of standards and bebop classics. The pianist, of course, always had his own fleet and rich way with ballads, in spite of the galvanizing marathon solos he became known for on live dates and his later experimental recordings with Coltrane. His ballad style is even touched with a bit of sentimentality, which thankfully is kept in check by a bevy of tasteful lines. Backed by the topnotch rhythm tandem of bassist Steve Davis and drummer Lex Humphries, Tyner finds the room to develop classic statements on highlights like Monk's "'Round Midnight," Ellington and Strayhorn's "Satin Doll," and Parker's "Star Eyes." On more easeful tracks like "For Heaven's Sake," Tyner utilizes his block chord approach to meditative and romantic effect. Rounded out by solid blues sides like "Blue Monk" and Tyner's own "Groove Waltz," Nights of Ballads & Blues qualifies as one of the pianist's most enjoyable early discs. - All Music

Clifford Brown Sextet - New Star On The Horizon
Clifford Brown Sextet
New Star On The Horizon
LP | 1953 | EU | Reissue (Down At Dawn)
12,99 €*
Release:1953 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Formerly a 10 inch issued on Blue Note in 1953 on Mono, this improved reissue now features 4 bonus tracks on the B side.
(From the original liner notes)The date took place just a week before Brownie took off for Europe, as a member of that vast edifice built by the master of multiple decibels, the Lionel Hampton orchestra. Like Gigi Gryce, the alto saxophonist and fellow-Hamptonian whom Brownie pressed into service for this session, the young hornman found the occasions for expressing his individual personality few and far between in so large and monolithic an organization. The opportunity to record with a small, compact group, aimed at the creation of originality and relaxation rather than intensity and consternation, was a welcome change of setting for the two eager youngsters.
A third Hampton star also helped to mold this date. He had also been installed for some time in Hamp’s trumpet section, but is perhaps known better as an arranger, and it is in the latter capacity that Quincy Jones, a new star from Boston, contributed two originals, Wail Bait and Brownie Eyes, for the Brown session. Completing the front line is Charlie Rouse, a tenor man whom most fans will remember from the famous Tadd Dameron conclave that produced The Squirrel, Our Delight, Dameronia, etc. on BLP 5004. Charlie has also been heard in the orchestras of Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie and others.

Charles Mingus
Town Hall Concert
LP | 1962 | EU | Reissue (Down At Dawn)
11,99 €*
Release:1962 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
For this legendary Town Hall Concert recorded on October 12, 1962, the great jazz composer and bassist Charles Mingus brought together an amazing lineup spanning the totality of the nation’s jazz scene with such luminaries as Eric Dolphy, Buddy Collette, Clark Terry, Zoot Sims, Pepper Adams, Jaki Byard, Grady Tate, and more. Brought together to perform new Mingus compositions for the first time in public, the recording was initially considered weak due to limited rehearsal time but the years have been kind to this recording and it’s a fantastic set of Mingus compositions, including the powerful “Freedom” which rivals the works on Mingus Ah-Um for its strength of purpose and message, in a similar vein to Max Roach’s legendary We Insist! album. Mingus is one of the most important figures in 20th Century music and this live recording documents his compositional and arranging prowess as well as sheer swinging joy. Essential.

House Party is the fourteenth album by American jazz organist Jimmy Smith featuring performances recorded in 1957 and 1958 and released on the Blue Note label.

House Party was the first of two Smith albums recorded on two dates, the second was Smith's next album The Sermon!, released in 1959. Van Gelder mainly used the ballroom for larger groups of musicians that would not fit in his parent's living room, or when New York was a more convenient location to record the artists involved.

Release:1953 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Originally issued in 1953 on Blue Note in the fascinating 10 inch format, the album is now being reissued with an extra track on Side B
(from the original liner notes) What style of piano does Elmo Hope play? It would be easy to answer “The same as Bud Powell,” but this would not do justice to a musician who, while coming along the same route as Bud for so many years, is now ploughing a separate path for himself, though in a similar general neighborhood. His original material, though it has the intense, rapt quality of Bud’s, remains personal, whether it be the relatively serene approach of Happy Hour or the minor Moroccan mood of Stars Over Marakech. When you hear Elmo Hope, your first reaction will quite possibly be “Well, where has he been all these years?” And the fact is that while Elmo was giving recitals at the age of 14 and even won medals during his teen-aged concertizing, he has never, until now, achieved much more than local recognition. If you will pardon the pun, this might be the time to say that there is new hope for Elmo.
