One of the most exciting trumpeters of all time, Freddie Hubbard ranks right up there with Lee Morgan as the most vital trumpet player of the 1960s. An absolute powerhouse on his instrument, Freddie became renown for his fearless and fiery playing and his courageous and dramatic solos. Hubbard recorded many definitive albums for Blue Note during the first half of the '60s including the 1964 gem Breaking Point! which finds the jazz master leading a rock solid quintet that includes James Spaulding (alto saxophone/flute), Ronnie Mathews (piano), Eddie Khan (bass) and Joe Chambers (drums) on a powerful and progressive 5-song set of four of his own originals and the Chambers classic "Mirrors."

Legendary violinist Itzhak Perlman is known the world over as one of the most recognizable and beloved classical artists today. The 16-time Grammy winning Perlman celebrates his 70th birthday on August 31.
Itzhak Perlman and Emanuel Ax – each winners of multiple Grammy Awards among a myriad of other honors – have teamed up for the exquisite album of Romantic-era masterpieces: the Violin Sonata No. 1 in A Major by Gabriel Fauré and the lone Violin Sonata by Richard Strauss. In addition to this being Perlman’s first new solo recording in over a decade, it is also the first recording by this violin-piano team after years of performing together on stage, and the first time Perlman has recorded these two major sonatas.
Describing the Fauré sonata, Perlman says: “It smells like ambrosia – the essence of French music, a lovely piece. For a violinist, its phrases are a real satisfaction to play, as they’re so rich.” As for the Strauss sonata, Perlman says, “It’s by the young Strauss – emotionally heroic, very appassionato. I like to write stories in my mind about the music I play, to help me with the phrasing. This is a dramatic story – although in the slow movement, I imagine it in a coffeehouse, intimate and warm.”

Diana Krall - When I Look In Your Eyes (1999/2002) High-Fidelity DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz

Artist: Diana Krall
Title: When I Look In Your Eyes
Genre: Jazz, Traditional Pop, Vocal Jazz, Smooth Jazz
Label: © The Verve Music Group | XUNI5221D64
Release Date: 1999/2002
Quality: DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz (DSD file created by Gus Skinas from the original DSD audio used to create the existing SACD)
Source: AcousticSounds
Duration: 00:54:28
Recorded: Avatar Studios, New York

With this CD, the young Canadian singer/pianist/arranger joins forces with producer Tommy LiPuma, who places his orchestral stamp on eight of the 13 tracks. It is the latest attempt to push Krall to an even wider pop/smooth jazz audience than she already enjoys. After all, Nat Cole, Wes Montgomery, and George Benson, among others, went this route. Wonder if she'd agree the cuts sans strings were more fun and challenging? Krall does get to it with central help from bassists John Clayton and Ben Wolfe, drummers Jeff Hamilton and Lewis Nash, and guitarist Russell Malone, all stellar players. Krall's voice is sweet and sexy. She's also flexible within her range and at times a bit kitschy, mostly the hopeless romantic. On this CD of love songs, it's clear she's cool but very much in love with this music. Bob Dorough's "Devil May Care" and the insistent "Best Thing for You" really click. Favorites are a decent Shearing-esque "Let's Fall in Love" with vibist Larry Bunker; a suave slow bossa on the opening number, "Let's Face the Music"; the lusher-than-lush title track; and especially an incredible horn-fired fanfare intro/outro on the hip "Pick Yourself Up." Some might call this fluff or mush, but it depends solely on your personal taste. This will certainly appeal to Krall's fans, lovers, and lovers at heart. --AllMusic Review by Michael G. Nastos

Diana Krall - The Look Of Love (2001/2002) High-Fidelity DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz

Artist: Diana Krall
Title: The Look Of Love
Genre: Jazz, Traditional Pop, Vocal Jazz, Smooth Jazz
Label: © The Verve Music Group | XUNI3869D64
Release Date: 2001/2002
Quality: DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz (DSD file created by Gus Skinas from the original DSD audio used to create the existing SACD)
Source: AcousticSounds
Duration: 00:50:30
Recorded: Avatar Studios, New York; Capitol Studios, Hollywood

2001 Grammy Award winner for Best Engineered Album Non-Classical, Diana Krall's The Look of Love - produced by Verve Music Group Chairman Tommy LiPuma - is a lush, cinematic collection of ten ballads and bossa nova tunes featuring the London Symphony Orchestra as arranged and conducted by the legendary Claus Ogerman.
Krall's longstanding relationship with LiPuma (Barbra Streisand, Natalie Cole) shines through here as he wonderfully showcases her mastery as a vocalist and pianist like no other. From the smoky rendition of "Cry Me A River," to the heartbreaking tenderness of "I Get Along Without You Very Well," to the Spanish language classic "Besame Mucho," not to mention a sultry rendition of the title track, The Look of Love is the album that Diana Krall dreamt about making and one her fans longed for and have since adored.

Diana Krall - The Girl In The Other Room (2004) High-Fidelity DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz


Artist: Diana Krall
Title: The Girl In The Other Room
Genre: Jazz, Traditional Pop, Vocal Jazz, Smooth Jazz
Label: © The Verve Music Group | XUNI3821D64
Release Date: 2004
Quality: DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz (DSD file created by Gus Skinas from the original DSD audio used to create the existing SACD)
Source: AcousticSounds
Duration: 00:55:39
Recorded: Avatar Studios, New York; Capitol Studios, Hollywood

Singer/pianist Diana Krall breaks new ground interpreting modern standards by Tom Waits, Mose Allison, and Joni Mitchell, as well as compositions by herself and new husband, Elvis Costello. Krall’s piano-jazz cred comes through loudly and clearly on her Count Basie-styled version of the Bonnie Raitt staple “Love Me Like a Man” (written by folk-bluesman Chris Smither). But it’s the collaborations with her spouse that unearth untapped emotional nuances of her velvet voice; many are reminiscent of Bill Evans’s moody, impressionistic pieces. The title track, “Narrow Daylight,” “Abandoned Masquerade,” and “I’m Coming Through” all deal with love and loss. “Departure Bay,” a picturesque ode to her hometown of Nanaimo, B.C., proves that this is the start of something big, and that two heads–and hearts–are better than one.
