Jimmy Smith - Bashin'
Jimmy Smith
LP | 1967 | EU | Reissue (Spiral Jazz)
19,99 €*
Release:1967 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Bashin’ –The Unpredictable Jimmy Smith (Verve V6-8474), presented Smith for the first time in front of a big band, with arrangements by Oliver Nelson.

Gerry Mulligan / Paul Desmond - Blues In Time
Gerry Mulligan / Paul Desmond
Blues In Time
LP | 1957 | EU | Reissue (Spiral Jazz)
19,99 €*
Release:1957 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
The sessions that produced this album marked the first of only two studio albums featuring Paul Desmond and Gerry Mulligan. Basically this is the same instrumentation employed by Mulligan in his classic pianoless quartet with Chet Baker, but with Desmond’s alto instead of Baker’s trumpet. A highly lyrical player, Desmond’s sound fits exactly with the deep sound of Mulligan’s baritone sax, and their interplay is very satisfying. Their second album, titled Two of a Mind, would be recorded in 1962, and after that Mulligan and Desmond would be reunited for several concerts, mostly featuring Gerry as a guest of the Dave Brubeck quartet. Their last recorded encounter dates back to a Berlin performance on November 4, 1972.
Ella Fitzgerald - Swings Brightly With Nelson
Ella Fitzgerald
Swings Brightly With Nelson
LP | 1962 | EU | Reissue (Spiral Jazz)
19,99 €*
Release:1962 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
In November/ December 1961 Ella and Nelson reunited again in the studio for a series of sessions which produced the album Ella Swings Brightly with Nelson. In fact, the dates produced much more material than necessary for a single LP, so in April of 1962 the singer and arranger got together for a couple of sessions more which would round out a second album, Ella Swings Gentle with Nelson (Verve V6-4055).
Duke Ellington - Festival Session
Duke Ellington
Festival Session
LP | 1959 | EU | Reissue (Spiral Jazz)
19,99 €*
Release:1959 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
The Ellington performance is best remembered for Paul Gonsalves’ multiple choruses on “Diminuendo and Crescendo in Blue”, which brought the audience’s excitement level to its zenith and led to a resurgence in Duke’s popularity. He used to say in later years that he had been “born” at Newport ’56. From that point on he was a regular attraction at the festival (as well as many other similar festivals that began to appear later). Ellington tended to introduce new pieces at these events, and the album Festival Session was a studio recording that primarily featured tunes he had presented at the Newport and Playboy jazz festivals during 1959. Two songs have been added to the original album that complete the session.
Dave Brubeck Quartet - Tonight Only
Dave Brubeck Quartet
Tonight Only
LP | 1960 | EU | Reissue (Spiral Jazz)
19,99 €*
Release:1960 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Although he was popular with the public since the beginning of his career in the late 1940s, the enormous success of his 1959 album Time Out allowed Dave Brubeck to get a free check to do whatever project he wanted. His renown made it possible for him to include important guest stars on his albums, such as Leonard Bernstein, Jimmy Rushing, and of course, Carmen McRae (1920-1994), who joined him for the first time on Tonight Only! In fact, she only participates on four of the LP’s nine numbers. “Tristesse” is a solo piano track by Brubeck, while “Melanctha”, “Talkin’ and Walkin’”, “Late Lament” and “Tonight Only” are by the Quartet featuring Paul Desmond. A fourth number with McRae was also recorded on the September 9, 1960 session which produced all of the album’s vocal selections: “There’ll Be No Tomorrow”, which was included as the last track on an album titled Point on Jazz, which was otherwise a piano duet. It has been added here as a bonus closing Side A.
