    A Dave Brubeck Christmas

    Lending his signature style to traditional Christmas favorites and original Christmas compositions, pianist Dave Brubeck delivers what he calls, a very
    personal statement that speaks to the curious mixture of both the joy and the melancholy of Christmas. Covering a host of favorite carols, Brubeck's
    chime-like rendition of Joy to the World and his striding Winter Wonderland are treasures. This special vinyl reissue contains two original Brubeck
    compositions: the delightful Run, Run, Run to Bethlehem and the meditative To Us Is Given. Without a doubt, A Dave Brubeck Christmas is a
    Christmas album that merits many repeat listens and essential record for any holiday music collection.

    Time Out (200 Gram)

    200 Gram Vinyl


    Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings present the definitive Time Out by The Dave Brubeck Quartet, now a 33 1/3 RPM LP


    Reissued as a gatefold jacket, with rare black and white photos from the Columbia Studios recording session. Heavy-duty chipboard shell stock by Stoughton Printing


    Virtually all serious and even casual music lovers ought to be familiar with, or at least are likely to have heard The Dave Brubeck Quartet, even without realizing it - for the quartet's best-known hit Take Five has graced the soundtracks of multiple films, including Mighty Aphrodite, Pleasantville and Constantine.


    The piece is famous for its distinctive, catchy saxophone melody, as well as its use of unusual 5/4 time - so distinctive, it's a rare jazz track that became a pop hit.


    Including the monster hit Take Five, the Brubeck Quartet's Time Out is a jazz and audiophile classic. Every album collection needs a copy. And now, cut at 33 1/3 RPM on 200-gram premium vinyl, pressed at Quality Record Pressings (Acoustic Sounds' own industry-lauded LP manufacturer), Analogue Productions brings you Time Out renewed.


    The jacket is also special - very heavy-duty. It's produced for us by Stoughton Printing featuring a printed wrap mounted to a heavyweight chipboard shell, producing an authentic old school look and feel. This jacket is a beauty! Never has Time Out's colorful iconic cover art looked so vibrant.


    The record label's sales executives didn't want a painting on the cover when Time Out debuted in 1959 on Columbia Records, Brubeck told an interviewer. An entire album of originals? That wouldn't work either, he was told. Some standards and some show tunes were needed in the mix. Fortunately, Brubeck ignored the conventional wisdom and Time Out became the original classic we know it as today. Brubeck became proof that creative jazz and popular success can go together.

    The Essential Dave Brubeck

    An amazingly comprehensive anthology-thanks to Brubeck, who personally selected the tracks!


    In the 1950s and '60s, few American jazz artists were as influential, and fewer still were as popular, as Dave Brubeck. At a time when the cooler sounds of West Coast jazz began to dominate the public face of the music, Brubeck proved there was an audience for the style far beyond the confines of the in-crowd, and with his emphasis on unusual time signatures and adventurous tonalities, Brubeck showed that ambitious and challenging music could still be accessible.

    Time Further Out: Miro Reflections

    Numbered Limited Edition!


    Time Further Out continues the Dave Brubeck Quartet's exploration of unusual time signatures that began on the ensemble's definitive 1959 album Time Out. Accompanied by an all-star cast, the esteemed pianist arranging tunes according to the number of beats per bar, in the process rewriting rhythmic rules and dance steps. In fact, the tracks are ordered by the number of beats per bar, starting with It's a Raggy Waltz and Bluette in 3/4, Charles Matthew Hallelujah in 4/4, Far More Blue and Far More Drums in 5/4, Maori Blues in 6/4, Unsquare Dance in 7/4, Bru's Boogie Woogie in 8/8, and concluding with Blue Shadows in the Street in 9/8.


    Like the original Time Out album, Time Further Out's cover features a work of modern art: a painting by Spanish artist Joan Miro. Mastered from the original analog tape by George Marino at Sterling Sounds in New York and pressed at RTI in Camarillo, California, this record has never sounded so alive or immediate. A must-have jazz benchmark.

    Kind Of Blue (Mono)

    180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl


    Mono


    Listed as one of the four most influential Jazz albums that happened to be released in 1959 (Dave Brubeck - Time Out & Charles Mingus - Ah Um among them), so much has been said and written about Miles Davis' Kind Of Blue, it's virtually impossible to summarize all the necessary info to the length of this page. We could simply list some facts (best sold Jazz album ever worldwide). We could try to explain why it's the best Jazz album ever made, but the music itself will do that to you.


    As Bill Evans said in the original liner notes for the record, the band did not play through any of these pieces prior to recording. Miles Davis laid out the themes before the tape rolled and the band improvised. The end results were fragile and wondrous. Recorded during 2 sessions in 1959, Kind of Blue worked on many different levels and will do so for many years to come.

    Jazz Goes To College

    In the spring of 1954 Jazz-great Dave Brubeck did a tour of North American college campuses. Paul Desmond (alto sax), Bob Bates (bass), and Joe Dodge (drums) joined him and their support of Brubeck is uniformly flawless, ultimately producing what many consider as the most memorable music in the artist's cannon.


    Indeed the genre gets schooled as the quartet leans in with striking energy and finesse. Enjoyed among college students in the 1950s and early 1960s both the tour and album brought Jazz to a whole new generation.

    Dave Brubeck Octet

    The listener has to forgive a few things about this undeniably brilliant collection of Dave Brubeck's first big ensemble. First: the liner notes' pretentions. Brubeck announces there that between 1946, when some of these tunes were recorded, and 1956, when the tapes were first reissued on LP, very few released recordings have more musical importance than the octet. Second: the nearly seven minutes of How High the Moon narrated to show how jazz was formed, as the band plays in short demonstrative segments. Third: the audio vÉritÉ sound, which even Brubeck thought questionable in 1956.


    Hearing this dynamic set, though, makes forgiveness easy. The arrangements show a wild abundance of color and orchestral finesse (many of the group's members were, like Brubeck, students of Darius Milhaud). You get quick-clip swingers like The Way You Looked Tonight and the string of chamber-esque horn studies that includes Schizophrenic Scherzo and more. You also get to hear early Paul Desmond and William O. Smith bouncing ideas off each other and drummer Cal Tjader. And it's all a delight, especially with the magnanimity of forgiving Brubeck. --Andrew Bartlett

    At Carnegie Hall (Speakers Corner)

    Many critics regard Dave Brubeck's Carnegie Hall concert from February 1963 as his greatest ever live appearance. But who can really determine that? For no one - apart from Brubeck himself - would have seen and heard his conservatively estimated 12,000 concerts.



    Although the twelve titles had already been released on LPs that had been recorded in the studio, these records were certainly not known to all those in the audience. In between the numbers on each LP, Brubeck made little 'advertising spots' in short comments, but with such charm and wit that one really cannot be angry with him.



    The concert programme begins with St. Louis Blues and ends with Take Five. Luckily, the solos are distributed among all the musicians, so that Paul Desmond and Joe Morello - whose prowess on this evening can only be called 'amazingly good' - justifiably received enthusiastic applause from both the audience and us alike. Castilian Drums demonstrates Morello's wealth of ideas and his grandiose feeling for rhythm; though short, Paul Desmond's solos (Southern Scene is a good example!) are compelling, highly melodic, lyrical and possess a unique tone - as such they are immediately recognisable.



    How fortunate that the twelve brilliantly improvised numbers are now available once again on vinyl, having been recorded live at the legendary Carnegie Hall 60 years ago.

    About Speakers Corner



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Jazz Goes To Junior College

    As a sort-of follow-up to Jazz Goes To College (which was actually recorded three years earlier) and the final album in his college series, pianist Dave Brubeck and his Quartet (with altoist Paul Desmond, bassist Norman Bates and drummer Joe Morello) recorded at Fullerton Junior College in 1957. The musicians were clearly inspired by the enthusiastic audience and they perform the definitive version of Brubeck's One Moment Worth Years, dig into the lengthy Bru's Blues and play fresh versions of three standards that were in their repertoire throughout the 1950's: These Foolish Things, St. Louis Blues and The Masquerade Is Over.

    Remastered


    'Time Out' is the 1959 album by The Dave Brubeck Quartet, based upon the use of time signatures that were unusual for jazz (mainly waltz or double-waltz time, but also 9/8, and most famously 5/4).
    Although the album was intended as an experiment and received negative reviews by critics upon its release, it became one of the best-known and biggest-selling jazz albums ever! Obviously, timing is everything!


    Just over 50 years after its original release, we present this timeless album on 180 grams audiophile vinyl.

    One of the many stellar sessions from the Dave Brubeck Quartet, famed jazz scribe Nat Hentoff wrote in DownBeat Magazine of Jazz At The College Of
    The Pacific that it ranks with the Oberlin and Storyville sets as the best of Brubeck on record." Featuring a lineup of drummer Joe Dodge, bassist Ron
    Crotty, and longtime Brubeck collaborator, altoist Paul Desmond, this set delivers the goods in a way that only a Brubeck combo can. Providing timeless
    interplay on six standards, Brubeck and Desmond trade solos that are absolutely brimming with creativity. A true classic in the Brubeck catalog, Jazz At
    The College Of The Pacific is essential listening for all fans of Brubeck, Desmond, and classic jazz.


    This timeless jazz recording has now been newly reissued on VINYL.

    Compadres (Speakers Corner)

    To this day, the typical sound colouring of the Dave Brubeck Quartet is quite distinctive and unmistakable thanks to Paul Desmond's tenor saxophone. But Gerry Mulligan's low-pitched horn and his restrained swing also offers enough appeal to make one want to listen to these somewhat less popular but - for all that - very worthwhile recording by the Quartet.



    The Quartet's concert tour of Mexico's major cities in 1968 was a great success and so Dave Brubeck's recording company had no qualms in making live recordings of the group - complemented by bassist Jack Six and drummer Alan Dawson. Themes from indigenous folk music were skilfully coupled with new compositions with the result that the LP Compadres with its concert excerpts was in great demand and became a top hit.
    This carefully remastered new pressing will certainly contribute to the popularity of Dave Brubeck and Gerry Mulligan long after their demise.

    Blues Roots (Pure Pleasure)

    Although this is a blues-oriented set, there is plenty of variety in tempos and grooves. The 1968 Quartet featured the leader/pianist, baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan, bassist Jack Six and drummer Alan Dawson. The repertoire on this LP ranges from Limehouse Blues (which is not really a blues) to Things Ain't What They Used To Be and several originals. These songs are average for 1968, but the soloing is remarkable and the musicians here are some of the best. Journey is a remarkably beautiful piano ballad, while Blues Roots narrowly rises above in it's epic scope, and over-the-top ending. It's probably my favourite song here. But, Broke Blues is also exceptional. This one, along with Cross Ties and Blues Roots, are fairly progressive, drawing as much from post bop as blues and traditional Jazz, pushing toward avante-garde. -G. Skate/S. Yannow

    Doxy present a picture disc reissue of John Coltrane's Blue Train, originally released in 1957. Blue Train is Coltrane's third session as a leader and one of the most iconic jazz albums of all-time. Featuring Curtis Fuller, Lee Morgan, Paul Chambers, Kenny Drew, and Philly Joe Jones, this is an absolutely essential jazz album and the title track is one of the most celebrated in jazz history, maybe matched only in recognition by Miles Davis's So What or Dave Brubeck's Take Five.

    Straight No Chaser

    A few years after recording Straight, No Chaser, Thelonious Monk disappeared from the public eye. But as the years passed, more people became aware of the seminal role he played in the development in jazz as both pianist and composer, creating a standard of excellence that many musicians after him aspire to.


    Produced by Teo Macero, who was also responsible for legendary albums such as Miles Davis' Kind Of Blue and Dave Brubeck's Time Out!, Monk's Straight, No Chaser is a classic in its own right. It's the last album the talented pianist and composer recorded with his quartet consisting of Larry Gales on bass, Ben Riley on drums and his musical soul mate Charlie Rouse on tenor sax. It includes a light yet mature version of one of his standards; Straight, No Chaser is one idea played again and again, each time in a different part of the measure and with a different ending, and highlights some stellar action between Monk and Rouse.

    Take Ten


    Limited, Numbered Edition Of 1,500 Copies


    Pressed On Audiophile-grade 180 Gram Vinyl At
    Pallas Group In Germany


    Mastered From Original Analog Tapes By Bernie
    Grundman


    Features Jim Hall On Guitar And Connie Kay On
    Drums


    Everyone wanted Desmond to come up with a sequel to the monster
    hit "Take Five"; and so he did, reworking the tune and playfully
    designating the meter as 10/8. Hence "Take Ten," a worthy sequel with
    a solo that has a Middle-Eastern feeling akin to Desmond's famous
    extemporaneous excursion with Brubeck in "Le Souk" back in 1954.
    It was here that Desmond also unveiled a spin-off of the then-red-hot
    bossa nova groove that he called "bossa antigua" (a sardonic play-on-words meaning "old thing"), which laid the ground for Desmond's
    next album and a few more later in the decade. Jim Hall now gets
    plenty of room to stretch out, supported by Connie Kay's gently
    dropped bombs, and he is the perfect understated swinging foil for
    the wistful altoist. There is not a single track here that isn't loaded with
    ingeniously worked out, always melodic ideas. Now Take Ten finally
    gets the audiophile treatment it deserves, with this 180gram reissue,
    mastered from original analog tapes by Bernie Grundman. Each copy
    of this limited edition release is numbered with a gold foil stamp.

    Concierto (Pure Pleasure)

    Jim Hall's Concierto was arguably a masterpiece and possibly the greatest LP in the history of CTI. With two legendary players in the frontline, trumpeter Chet Baker and Paul Desmond, Hall interprets standards and engaging originals. A master of melody who never wastes notes, the centerpiece for this release is Hall's interpretation of one movement from Rodrigo's Guitar Concerto, arranged by Don Sebesky. New tracks include alternate takes of You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To and Rock Skippin', plus Unfinished Business, an incomplete track that fades following Desmond's solo just as Hall starts to play (This song is actually La Paloma Azul, a Mexican folk tune played by Paul Desmond while with the Dave Brubeck Quartet about a decade earlier, also known as The Blue Dove).



    Musicians:



    • Jim Hall (guitar)

    • Chet Baker (trumpet)

    • Paul Desmond (alto saxophone)

    • Roland Hanna (piano)

    • Ron Carter (bass)

    • Steve Gadd (drums)

    About Pure Pleasure



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Take Ten (Speakers Corner)

    No, not Take Five but Take Ten is the title of this LP and its very first number. Certainly this should be taken as a hint that it was not Dave Brubeck but Paul Desmond who was the composer of this 'million seller'. At the recording session, the guitarist Jim Hall was more than a substitute for the piano - he contributed to the quartet a whole new sound colouring which was tinged with the influences of bossa nova.
    The numbers are all easy-going and airy, the melodic lines and sound are filled with transparency. All the while one is curious as to the clear part-writing, and the wealth of ideas emanating from the soloists. This does not only apply to the old favourites Alone Together, Nancy and The One I Love, all three of them arrangements made ad hoc in the studio and which demonstrate how familiar the musicians were with one another, how they listened to one another, answered, and kept the dialogue flowing. The atmosphere is relaxed, and this conveys itself to the listener even after almost half a century.



    RCA's recording and reproduction technology was ahead of its time. The music of these South-American-sounding gems comes out of the loudspeakers with brilliance, clarity and - at last - without the frustrating crackle of a second-hand LP.



    Musicians:



    • Paul Desmond (alto saxophone)

    • Jim Hall (guitar)

    • Gene Cherico, Gene Wright (bass)

    • Connie Kay (drums)

    The Boy Next Door (Pure Pleasure)

    Ms Kent's album, The Boy Next Door, is a heartfelt and reverent tribute to her musical heroes, which include legendary crooners Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, octogenarian jazz master Dave Brubeck and Manhattan cabaret doyen Bobby Short. The stylish jazz chanteuse's repertoire also finds her working outside the Great American Songbook for the first time, with contributions from latter-day pop songwriters Burt Bacharach, Paul Simon and Carole King. Ms Kent puts her own indelible stamp on each number as she weaves her magic on a delectable collection of pop-jazz standards that encompass infatuation, seduction, love, loss and reminiscence.



    Ms Kent receives impeccable support from her sleek, urbane jazz quintet, whose rhythmic fluency is further enhanced by the tasteful, literate arrangements. Newton and Tomlinson, both accomplished musicians in their own right, also display hitherto unknown musical talents as they join Curtis Schwartz to provide tongue-in-cheek backing vocals for Ms Kent's deliciously bouncy rendition of Ooh-Shoo-Be-Doo-Bee.




    Musicians:



    • Stacey Kent (vocal)

    • Jim Tomlinson (vocal, saxophone)

    • Colin Oxley (guitar)

    • David Newton (piano, keyboards, vocal)

    • Dave Chamberlain (bass)

    • Matt Home (drum)

    • Curtis Schwartz (backing vocal)

    Studio Rio Presents: The Brazil Connection

    Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will release Studio Rio Presents: The Brazil Connection, an innovative new collection of 12 beloved vocal recordings re-experienced through new samba and bossa nova arrangements created by iconic Brazilian musicians and The Berman Brothers.


    Embracing the All In One Rhythm™ Theme of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Studio Rio Presents: The Brazil Connection blends 12 iconic performances--from Bill Withers, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Billie Holiday, Sly & The Family Stone, The Isley Brothers, Mel TormÉ, Nina Simone, Johnny Nash, Dave Brubeck with Carmen McRae, Andy Williams and Sarah Vaughan--with new, samba and bossa nova arrangements and production inspired by the spirit of Brazilian music.


    Working on Studio Rio Presents: The Brazil Connection project, the Berman Brothers sought out the original multi-track masters and utilized an all-new, state-of-the-art separation technology from Science of Sounds to extract exquisitely pristine and detailed vocals. The newly isolated vocals were then melded with brand-new, authentic backing arrangements played by Studio Rio, an all-star cast of Brazilian musical pioneers from the bossa nova and samba genres, including Latin Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner Roberto Menescal and Brazilian musical legend Marcos Valle.


    Studio Rio Presents: The Brazil Connection is the latest innovative musical project from the Berman Brothers (Frank and Christian), a production team whose previous work includes Rhythms Del Mundo (2006), a cross-cultural album summit which which fused an all-star cast of Cuban musicians including Ibrahim Ferrer and Omara Portuondo of the Buena Vista Social Club with US and UK artists and superstars such as U2, Coldplay, Sting, Jack Johnson, Maroon5, Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand, Kaiser Chiefs and others. Rhythms del Mundo was released in more than 61 countries and received multiple sales awards worldwide.


    During the past 20 years, the Berman Brothers have received more than 90 gold and platinum awards, two BMI Awards, a Golden Globe nomination, a Grammy nomination (for Love One Another, recorded by Cher) and a place in history for their production and remix of the Baha Men's colossal hit, Who Let the Dogs Out. As producers, writers and publishers, the Bermans have worked with an array of international superstars including Coldplay, Sting, Cher, Real McCoy, Dido, Maroon5, Sophie B Hawkins, Reamonn and members of the legendary Buena Vista Social Club.


    Music is the heart and soul of Brazil, celebrating with syncopated beats and beautifully expressive melodies. It's the life force of the entire culture, wrote the Berman Brothers in their notes for Studio Rio Presents: The Brazil Connection. We have always had a huge appreciation of Brazilian music. Between us, we have a massive collection of bossa nova and samba recordings, new and old, a lot which we found in flea markets in Amsterdam, Paris, and London.... Once you get into this music, there really is no way to stop. It was this joyful and timeless music that inspired the idea for this collection. Our goal was to bring the Brazilian joie de vivre to iconic performances by well-known American artists like Billie Holiday, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, The Isley Brothers, and many others. What would these classic songs sound like had they been recorded in the studios of Rio De Janeiro in the first place, with the best Brazilian musicians and arrangers?"


    "It was an amazing journey-bringing together these American classics and the vibrancy of Brazilian music with the help of so many talented musicians, arrangers and a dedicated production team. We learned many things putting together this music including what was the most important, and least surprising lesson of all: Brazil is the most musical place we have ever been in our lives.
