Reissued by the audiophile label Mobile Fidelity on LP, this Red Nichols set is a bit unusual in that it is a live session. The cornetist and his Five Pennies (which includes the great bass saxophonist Joe Rushton, clarinetist Bill Wood and trombonist Pete Beilman) plays one of their typical sets of the period.Read More

After bouncing around Philips, Atlantic, and Capitol playing Brazilian jazz or searching for an ideal blend of Brazilian and American pop, Sergio Mendes struck gold on his first try at A&M (then not much more than the home of Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass and the Baja Marimba Band).Read More

This unique album is a surprising artistic success. Stan Kenton and a large studio orchestra filled with many of his alumni perform his adaptations of eight themes from the classical works of Richard Wagner. Somehow Kenton turns Wagner’s music into jazz, capturing the intense emotion, pomposity and drama with daring ideas. Not for all tastes, this LP was one of Stan Kenton’s last innovative recordings.Read More

After nearly a decade trying to make it to “The Show,” Twisted Sister were finally up to bat. Their first album was a wild swing, their second had flown just barely foul, but with their third — the unstoppable Stay Hungry — the New York veterans finally hit one out of the park. And few bands were as deserving.Read More

Named the 6th best album in music history by Rolling Stone, Marvin Gaye’s staggeringly influential What’s Going On is pure soul genius and an ageless document about urban ills, employment issues, environmental concerns, and social responsibilities that’s as relevant today as it was upon release in 1971. At once, the singer both revolutionized Motown’s cache and upped the ante for his fellow artists.Read More

Mobile Fidelity reissued two of the Jam’s best albums, All Mod Cons and Sound Affects, on one gold CD. Although these are two classic records, only hardcore Jam fans will need to acquire this disc, since it carries such a high retail price. Granted, Mobile Fidelity’s remastering is very good, but the remastering on the box set Direction Reaction Creation matches it, and that five-disc set is available for roughly twice the price of this single disc.Read More

No one expected the success of Dream Weaver when it was released, but it sailed to the top of the charts, and with good reason. Backed with only drums and a wide assortment of keyboards, Gary Wright crafted instantly recognizable tunes such as the title cut and “Love Is Alive,” which caught on and remain staples of classic rock stations around the U.S. All very revolutionary and new at the time, Dream Weaver hasn’t lost any of its magic over time.Read More
