Bill Frisell - Is that you?

Recorded in 1989. Bill Frisell usually makes his albums with a certain all the same style tracks. This one, however, goes from hard-funky overdriven eat-this tracks to classical guitar solos and cool brasswinds (sometimes in the same track). Don't be scared by the first two songs, they are pretty heavy. The rest of the album is more, well, I was going to say calm but...
Listen the album, specially the first two tracks (plus Yuba city) LOUD; the engineer had probably expend a lot of hours working with the compression for you to listen like a mosquito.

Ella Fitzgerald - Cole Porter Song Book

There is no need to introduce Ella. Unmatchable.
Recorded and released in 1956 by Verve, this album is probably one of her best. It's a MUST HAVE. The orchestra is HOT, the recording is HOT, she is HOT and, let's not forget, this album is all about love. And what a HOT love!

Unbelievable! Allmusic did it; they managed to post a review that makes me wonder if they really want to stay in business. I honestly would want to see them shutdown after this.
Miraculously, according to Allmusic.com, not only Ella Fitzgerald sings but, also, Fred Asteire, Bing Crosby, Judy Garland, Benny Goodman (!), Peggy Lee, Cole Porter and others!
Allmusic: give us a break, ok?
I'll post the credits later.

John Abercrombie

This one is different.
Guitar, drum, bass and violin. I usually tend to dislike jazz with violin (of course there's Stephane Grappelli with Django Reinhard) flute (exception: Eric Dolphy) or other crossovers, but, this time, Mark Feldman did it extremely well.
This is an album with rare beauty, it is involving, somehow cozy (Hm... cozy?) and, well, they do go real crazy some times, watch out with the volume.

LIft every voice - Andrew Hill

Andrew + Quintet + 9 voices. Fun, isn't it? You bet.
As usual, Andrew had problem finding listeners for this disc back when it reached the streets in 1969, so it had two releases, with different musicians and approach; In this edition we find a kind of compilation of these previous releases.
In a more funky style, featuring Lee Morgan, Ron Carter, Ben Riley and Woody Shaw, this uplifting album may seem easy, but it's rather complex and substantial. The voices are pretty aggressive and unique, the Tenor Sax is surprisingly wild and, well, I always tend to get lost with adjectives... so make up your own.

Divine Revelation - Andrew Hill

From Andrew, more approachable then usual... could say, introductory. I'd better remind you guys that we are talking about Andrew, so it is never, NEVER, easy to listen to.
Some people come to me and show some "up-to-date crazy" jazz artists with their already much explored music, their unforgivable laziness for development, an annoying easy listening approach and a crowd of dumb deft applauding a superfluous approach to jazz; it seems that these artists either don't have a minimum sense of history and research or that they are, in fact, pretty much comfortable; I honestly don't know what is worse.
Andrew Hill had an incredible sensitivity. He was already doing music that, 40+ years after, would still remain cutting edge, pretty complex, fine, always fresh and delicious - like opening a good old vintage Sauternes.
Well, without further talking, get the album. I am not going to describe it, nor point the best parts, the album itself will do this for me.

Made in Coltrane

Not released for the first time until 1974 but now available in expanded form as a CD, this set of duets by tenor saxophonist John Coltrane and drummer Rashied Ali are full of fire, emotion and constant abstract invention. The original four pieces ("Mars," "Venus," "Jupiter" and "Saturn") are joined by "Leo" and "Jupiter Variation." Coltrane alternates quiet moments with sections of great intensity, showing off his phenominal technique and ability to improvise without the need for chordal instruments. Rousing if somewhat inaccessible music.
