Diana Panton’s tenth album is not a casual listen, but a deep delve into the feelings that accompany the fragments of a broken relationship. The record is the third in a trilogy that began with the infatuation of first-time love on 2009’s JUNO-nominated ‘Pink’ release and followed by the passion of true love on 2015’s JUNO-winning ‘RED’ album.

“The topic of the album is first and foremost about traveling…” says Dhafer. “After traveling to the fourcorners of the world, in search of new sounds, here I sing differently and use vocal effects that I grew upwith. Particularly the sound effect of megaphones for the call to prayer – hence the record title Street ofMinarets.” The rest of the guests took part in the magical journey too.Featuring musical guests such as Herbie Hancock, Marcus Miller, Dave Holland and more Continue reading “Dhafer Youssef – Street of Minarets (2023) [CD-Quality + Hi-Res] [Official Digital Release]”

A surprisingly good collaboration from two virtuosos of their given instruments. Bobby McFerrin, the master of the voice, and Yo-yo Ma, the master of the cello, combined to perform various pieces, from classical, traditional, and contemporary classical sectors. Some of the McFerrin compositions are quite amazing simply as compositions to begin with, but when the cello and vocal performances are added, they become something even more exciting.

The second volume of the Modern Jazz Quartet at the Music Inn was released in 1959, a year after its historic first volume with guest Jimmy Giuffre. The format on this set is similar, with pianist John Lewis, vibraphonist Milt Jackson, bassist Percy Heath, and drummer Connie Kay moving through a gorgeous medley of standards to open including “Stardust,” “I Can’t Get Started,” and “Lover Man,” with beautiful and clever counterpoint between Lewis and Jackson on the melody lines.

This fourth album from Manhattan Transfer was the first for Cheryl Bentyne, who replaced Laurel Masse after the original singer’s auto accident and subsequent decision to leave the group. Though replacing Masse was difficult, Bentyne’s energy and style proved to be the perfect complement to the group’s already dynamic performance. Hits from Extensions include “Twilight Zone” and “Birdland,” which earned the group their first Grammy for Best Jazz Performance, Vocal or Instrumental.

The timeless Way out West established Sonny Rollins as jazz’s top tenor saxophonist (at least until John Coltrane surpassed him the following year). Joined by bassist Ray Brown and drummer Shelly Manne, Rollins is heard at one of his peaks on such pieces as “I’m an Old Cowhand (From the Rio Grande),” his own “Way out West,” “There Is No Greater Love,” and “Come, Gone” Continue reading “Sonny Rollins – Way Out West (year) [2002, Remastered, Hi-Res SACD Rip]”
