    Faddis


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso At Friday Music Studios & Manufactured At R.T.I..


    Charlie Parker was a true innovator of the hard bop jazz sound which continues to be loved the world over, thanks to his legendary jazz recordings and unique contributions to the genre.


    The saxophonist's short life was documented in an acclaimed biographic movie produced by the legendary Clint Eastwood in 1988 starring the great Forest Whitaker, of which he won an award for Best Actor at the Cannes Film Festival.


    The film also took home an Academy Award for Best Sound which notably due to the unique recording itself thanks to the Parker's widow Chan Parker, who supplied the original recordings to Clint Eastwood for use in the film.


    Clint went on to enhance the tapes with sideman Red Roney, Ron Carter, Jon Faddis and others as the original soundtrack recording for Bird took flight!


    Featuring 10 of Charlie's finest tunes like This Time The Dreams On Me, Ko Ko, Parker's Mood and Orinthology, the Bird soundtrack truly is a jazz lover's dream.


    Friday Music is very pleased to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of Charlie Parker's BIRD- THE ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK.


    Impeccably mastered by Joe Reagoso and pressed for a very limited time on translucent blue vinyl at R.T.I., the Lp cover will also be featured in a first time gatefold cover to further enhance your listening hours.

    Round About Midnight (Speakers Corner)

    At long last these early recordings, which Miles Davis set down for the Columbia label in 1955 and 1956, are available on LP again. And what is more, they were made without any alternate takes or second attempts, as is the custom these days.



    You can sit back and enjoy the six numbers in the order which the producer, probably in conjunction with Davis, decided upon. To be sure, all of the titles are well known and have been played a thousand times over in many different versions. But what this Quintet (and here each and every individual musician is meant!) produces as regards inventiveness, thrilling improvisations and artistry is absolutely top notch. Davis's vibrato-less sound is taken over seamlessly by John Coltrane - wonderfully demonstrated in the middle of Bye, Bye Blackbird, while Paul Chambers' showpiece is Ack VÄrmeland du sköna (aka Dear Old Stockholm). In the years 1955/56, bebop was the talk of the day, born witness to by the classics Tadd's Delight by Tadd Dameron and Ah-Leu-Cha by Charlie Parker. Here, however, the improvised melodic strands are more moderate, pointing the way to the style that later became known as modal jazz.



    Although 'Round About Midnight as an album does not enjoy the reputation of Kind Of Blue, this Columbia recording contains many gems which are well worth hearing.



    Musicians:



    • Miles Davis

    • John Coltrane (tenor saxophone)

    • Red Garland (piano)

    • Paul Chambers (bass)

    • Philly Joe Jones (drums)




    Recording: October 1955, June and September 1956 at Columbia's 30th Street Studio, New York

    Production: George Avakian




    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.

    Very Cool

    Lee Konitz is widely recognized as one of the driving forces of cool jazz. His involvement with the movement included his participation in Miles Davis' pivotal album Birth of the Cool in 1949, as well as his extended work with pianist Lennie Tristano. During his long career, Konitz has played with musicians from a wide variety of jazz styles. Many Konitz connoisseurs consider Very Cool to be one of his finest albums as a leader. It consists of an original tune by Lee, two by the date's trumpeter Don Ferrara, a couple of jazz standards, and Billie's Bounce, one of many homages by Konitz to his (and probably all modern saxophonists) mentor, Charlie Parker.

    Bird At St. Nick's

    Charlie Parker attracted young musicians like a magnet. Among them was trombonist Jimmy Knepper, who, at a time when tape recording was a brand-new thing, captured Bird in flight one winter night in Manhattan. He soared, and when Charles Mingus heard the music years later, he issued it as the first release on his new Jazz Workshop label. Since then, many private recordings of Parker have been made public. This was one of the first, and remains one of the best, a precious musical document.

    Yesterdays

    2001 was a vintage year for the Jarrett trio, as three outstanding live albums - "The Out-of-Towners", "Always Let Me Go" and "My Foolish Heart"- have already shown. "Yesterdays", registered at Tokyo's Metropolitan Festival Hall, is a fourth 2001 concert recording, with an all-standards programme and a strong emphasis on bebop, including Charlie Parker's "Scrapple from the Apple", "Shaw'nuff" by Parker and Dizzy Gillespie, and Horace Silver's "Strollin'". There is also an exhilarating splash of ragtime in the shape of "You Took Advantage Of Me", and beautiful ballads including the title track and "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" (both from Jerome Kern's pen). As a bonus: the album concludes with a radiant "Stella by Starlight" captured at a soundcheck: Jarrett, Peacock and DeJohnette playing just for the joy of it...

    Blues Walk

    Blue Note Reissue



    As much as I'd love to relay all kinds of anecdotes about the challenges Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray encounter during the mastering sessions, I witness none. These boys know the sound of the facility and the Van Gelder masters like the backs of their handsBack home a month later, I unpack some test pressings Chad Kassem has sent meI hear the most realistic-sounding drums ever reproduced by my system. It's as though I'm sitting at the point of creation, experiencing the same high that brought such gifted musicians together as one. Steve Hoffman, Kevin Gray, Chad Kassem, and Don MacInnis have done Rudy Van Gelder and his Blue Note artists proud. Jason Victor Serinus, Stereophile, April 2008


    Lou Donaldson's undisputed masterpiece, Blues Walk, marks the point where the altoist began to decisively modify his heavy Charlie Parker influence and add a smoky, bluesy flavor of his own. The material is still firmly in the bebop style, and the mellower moments aren't as sleepy as some of Donaldson's subsequent work, so the album sounds vital and distinctive even as it slows down and loosens things up. What elevates Blues Walk to classic status is its inviting warmth. Donaldson's sweetly singing horn is melodic throughout the six selections, making even his most advanced ideas sound utterly good-natured and accessible. The easy-swinging title cut is arguably Donaldson's signature tune even above his late-'60s soul-jazz hits, and his other two originals, Play Ray and Callin' All Cats, are in largely the same vein.

    Memorial Album


    Part Of The Blue Note 75th Anniversary Vinyl Reissue Campaign


    Clifford Brown emerged fully formed in 1953, a trumpeter gifted with an ebullient swing and technical skills that added polish and precision to fresh invention. Foregoing both the manic pyrotechnics of Dizzy Gillespie and the laconic introversion of Miles Davis, he also provided a stylistic model for jazz trumpeters that has never gone out of style. This album combines Brown's first two recording dates as leader, placing him in quintet and sextet settings with some of the core musicians of the New York bop scene. The first nine tracks have Brown in an inspired quintet, prodded by the twisting, off-kilter solos and comping of the brilliant and underrated pianist Elmo Hope and the sparkling complexity of drummer Philly Joe Jones. While altoist Lou Donaldson is deeply in the sway of Charlie Parker, Brown sets his own course, whether it's the boppish Cookin' or the standard You Go to My Head. The final nine tracks have Art Blakey's drums driving the sextet, while altoist Gigi Gryce's understated concentration acts as an effective foil to Brown's joyous, dancing lines. Taken at a medium up-tempo, Cherokee is one of Brown's most effective vehicles. The alternate takes from each session highlight Brown's spontaneous creativity, while Rudy Van Gelder's remastering adds fresh focus to both his gorgeous tone and the explosive drumming. --Stuart Broomer

    The Time Is Right

    A soul survivor in every sense of the term, this alto saxophonist is one of the few remaining jazz artists who made a major impact on the jazz community via an extensive run with producer Alfred Lion and the Blue Note label (Horace Silver being another Blue Note legend that comes to mind). From his first recordings for the label with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, it was clear that Lou Donaldson put melody and sound at a premium, coming up with an amalgam that combined the creamy smoothness of Johnny Hodges with the quicksilver bop inflections of Charlie Parker.

    Concert of the Century - A Tribute to Charlie Parker


    First Time Available On Wide Release Vinyl


    Pristinely Restored 1980 Live Recording


    6 Of The Greatest Jazz Legends In Their Prime


    180 Gram Audiophile 2LP Vinyl With Gatefold


    On a cold November evening in 1980, 3000 jazz fans filled the Salle Wilfrid Pelletier Hall of Place des Arts
    in Montreal, Quebec to attend what promised to be, a swinging evening featuring six of the biggest names
    in bebop. Billed The Concert of the Century - A Tribute to Charlie Parker, and under the direction of
    Dizzy Gillespie - one of the best jazz trumpeters of all time - the event featured legendary performers:
    Hank Jones - piano, Ray Brown - bass, Milt Jackson - vibes, Philly Joe Jones - drums and James Moody
    on tenor sax and flute. Local club owner Roue Doudou Boicel, who produced the concert, had the foresight
    to record the concert in its entirety. A limited quantity bootleg LP of the concert soon appeared and then
    disappeared from the marketplace, those tapes lay dormant for over 30 years.


    This historic recording opens with rapturous applause that sets the tone with Dizzy's own "Blues 'N' Boogie.
    "Also featured are several classic standards - some more well known then others - including "Darben The
    Redd Foxx," "Time On My Hands," "Get Happy," "The Shadow Of Your Smile" and "Stardust." All the players are
    at the top of their game and having a blast, as evidenced by the banter and repartee between songs.


    Concert of the Century, pristinely restored and remastered, features two tracks that weren't on the original
    pressing from the early '80s - Ralph Rainger's "If I Should Lose You" and an incredible eight minute bass
    solo by Ray Brown.

    On this Impulse! release, Charlie Parker's music is uniquely re-imagined by living legends of the modern jazz scene. Produced by Larry Klein, and including artists like Ben Monder, Madeleine Peyroux, Melody Gardot, and Gregory Porter, this 'musical play' follows the narrative arc of Bird's life. This release aims to sound "like something that outlines the shape of what Bird might be doing in this time, were he still alive and playing these songs".

    Moondog

    He was born Louis Hardin, but the world knew him as Moondog-and his avant-garde compositions influenced a generation of minimalist composers like Philip Glass and Steve Reich. Now, Moondog, The Viking of 6th Avenue's seminal 1969 album recorded with producer James William Guercio, will be reissued vinyl, its first pressing in over a decade. Featuring original symphonic and classically-inspired works (including material dedicated to Charlie Parker and Benny Goodman), Moondog is an album that must be heard to be believed.

    Outward Bound

    Eric Dolphy has sometimes been described as an iconoclast, but in Outward Bound, he was not overturning his idol, Charlie Parker; he was building on Bird's legacy. So deep was Dolphy's musicianship, so free his imagination, that he enchanted trailblazers like John Coltrane and Charles Mingus. Partnering in this collection with the brilliant trumpeter Freddie Hubbard and a stunning rhythm section, Dolphy is at a peak of energy and creativity on alto saxophone, bass clarinet, and flute. He and Hubbard work with empathy reminiscent of the young Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. Pianist Jaki Byard, bassist George Tucker, and drummer Roy Haynes were ideal accompanists and co-conspirators in this widely influential work.

    The album includes tracks from Davis's first recording session, backing singer Rubberlegs Williams on April 24, 1945, and the first session produced under his name, leading the members of Charlie Parker's band on August 14, 1947. Davis plays no solos in the session with Rubberlegs Williams, only being heard as part of an ensemble. He says in his autobiography he was so nervous on his first ever recording he could hardly play, and he forgot most of the details as he put the experience out of his mind.

    4, 5, And 6 (Mono)

    Jackie McLean's aptly titled 1956 release 4,5 and 6 features recordings from the innovative alto saxophonist in three different settings including tracks with a quartet, an expanded quintet and even a sextet. Supporting players such as Hank Mobley (tenor sax), Donald Byrd (trumpet), Mal Waldron (piano), Doug Watkins (bass) and Art Taylor (drums) join in on the proceedings in disparate incarnations, all with winning results. The dynamic 6-song set is highlighted by Waldron's own stirring ballad Abstraction and the sextet's sprawling version of Charlie Parkers Confirmation.

    This album is one in a series of special 2014 releases commemorating the 65th anniversary of Prestige Records and the 90th birthday of legendary
    recording engineer Rudy Van Gelder.


    Before Jackie McLean made some of the great jazz albums of the 1960s for Blue Note, he recorded for the Prestige label. 4, 5 and 6 is the best of all his
    pre-Blue Note sessions. Recorded over two dates in July 1956, the album features future Blue Note colleague Donald Byrd joining in on trumpet for the
    album's two originals Abstraction and Contour (penned by Kenny Drew and Mal Waldron respectively). Another Blue Noter, tenor-saxophonist Hank
    Mobley, even makes it a sextet on Charlie Parker's Confirmation. The remaining three selections are quartet pieces (hence the album's title) with Mal
    Waldron on piano, Doug Watkins on bass and Art Taylor on drums. Newly reissued on vinyl, this is a 'MUST HAVE' addition to all great jazz collections.

    Chet Is Back

    Recorded in Rome, Italy at RCA's studios, Chet Is back! is the 1962 studio album by the undisputed master of the trumpet, Chet Baker. Backed by a group of up-and-coming European jazz musicians, which included Belgian saxophonist Bobby Jaspar, Belgian guitarist Rene Thomas, Italian pianist Amedeo Tommasi, French bassist Benoit Quersin, and Swiss drummer Daniel Humair, according to critics Chet Baker may have never sounded better.


    The album features compositions by other jazz musicians like Thelonious Monk's Well, You Needn't, Charlie Parker's Barbados and Sonny Rollins' Pent Up House. The album also includes an original composition by Amedeo Tommasi entitled Ballata in forma di blues. Ballads are featured as well, including the classic Academy Award-winning Over the Rainbow.

    Collectors' Items


    Special Vinyl Reissue In A Series Of Special 2014 Releases Commemorating The 65th Anniversary Of Prestige Records And The 90th Birthday Of Legendary
    Recording Engineer Rudy Van Gelder


    Originally released in 1956, Collectors' Items consists of two studio sessions recorded over roughly three years, with a menagerie of musicians taking
    part. Because of the amount of time between each session (1953 and 1956), fans will get an intimate peek into the artistic maturation of the esteemed
    artists who took part in the recordings. Sonny Rollins, Charlie Parker (who recorded under the name "Charlie Chan" to avoid contractual issues while
    under a rival label), Paul Chambers, Art Taylor and Tommy Flanagan were just some of the names who joined Davis in the studio. Collectors' Items opens
    the studio doors to listeners, allowing them to take part in a moment-Charlie Parker trying out a new King tenor sax; Miles Davis informally improvising;
    the band recording "Round About Midnight" at six PM, due to the studio closing down for the night. Ira Gitler's liner notes recall details like this-adding
    dimension and a context to the album's tracks. This is most definitely a Collectors' Item for any jazz fan.
