Umphrey's McGee - 2016-05-07 - Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas, Las Vegas, NV (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/48kHz

Artist: Umphrey's McGee
Title: 2016-05-07 - Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas, Las Vegas, NV

A jam band coming out of the Midwest in the mid-'90s, Umphrey's McGee edged toward the Frank Zappa side of the improv rock scale, as opposed to the Grateful Dead/Allman Brothers Band direction of their many contemporaries. The members of Umphrey's McGee met at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. The original four bandmembers (keyboardist Joel Cummins, guitarist Brendan Bayliss, bassist Ryan Stasik, and drummer Mike Mirro) had been playing in various campus bands when they got together in December 1997, naming themselves after a cousin of Bayliss'. With the national jam band infrastructure already in place, the band quickly began disseminating their live shows and soon released their first studio album, Greatest Hits, Vol. 3. The fourth-generation jam band often included songs by Phish and moe. in their live sets, along with the usual selection of wacky covers.
The quartet won a large following in the South Bend area. As bandmembers graduated, the group began a more and more rigorous rehearsal schedule. Half of the band had degrees in music, so emphasis was placed on constant precision. The bandmembers religiously studied tapes of their performances in order to improve them. While their record sales still hadn't reached high levels, they used live recordings to pave the way for gigs in parts of the country they'd never been to before. (A story circulates of the band selling out shows in Colorado before their first trip there due to the distribution of their live CDs.)

Thelonious Monk Trio - Thelonious Monk Trio (1954/2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/44,1kHz

Artist: Thelonious Monk Trio
Title: Thelonious Monk Trio
Genre: Jazz, Bop, Piano Jazz
Label: © Prestige Records/Concord Music Group
Release Date: 1954/2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC 2.0 Mono 44,1kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 34:48
Recorded: October 15 (#5,6,7,8), December 18 (#3,4,9,10), 1952, and September 22 (#1,2), 1954 at the Van Gelder Studio in Hackensack, NJ
Remastered: 2007, Rudy Van Gelder at Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, NJ


The position of legendary figure is usually reserved for a deceased musician who has played two decades before. It usually requires this posthumous status and span of time, for the various stories concerning him to grow into a legend but it took a very much alive Thelonious Monk only five years to surround himself with an air of mystery and receive the title “High Priest of Bebop” in the Forties.
Perhaps this element of weird glamour prevented many people from enjoying Monk’s music to the fullest extent. Certainly he is always low man on the totem pole whenever the triumvirate of the founding fathers of bop is evaluated. This is due in part, no doubt, to the greater solo prowess of Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie, but Thelonious’s contributions in time, chord patterns, and the original lines resulting from them were unjustly minimized. Actually they were the basis for much of the jazz of the Forties and Fifties.
Today he stands as an individual, a highly original musician who is the mentor of many young musicians in New York and the influence of countless others all over the globe. In his writing and playing, he consistently proves his right to the often misapplied title of creator. This album is composed of two separate sessions. As a belated sequel to Thelonious’s successful trio sessions of 1952, this one was also richly rewarding.
Though not a great soloist from the standpoint of technique, brilliance, and flash, Monk’s originality of style and width of idea serve to make him a highly interesting and important one. His playing can be characterized by roast beef, and a martini in which vermouth plays a very minor supporting role; much meat and very dry.

Thelonious Monk, Sonny Rollins - Thelonious Monk And Sonny Rollins (1956/2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/44,1kHz

Artist: Thelonious Monk, Sonny Rollins
Title: Thelonious Monk And Sonny Rollins
Genre: Jazz, Hard Bop,
Label: © Prestige Records/Concord Music Group
Release Date: 1956/2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC 2.0 Mono 44,1kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 34:04
Recorded: November 13, 1953 at WOR Studios, New York, NY; September 22 & October 25, 1954 at Van Gelder Studio, Hackensack, NJ
Remastered: 2006, Rudy Van Gelder at Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, NJ


Thelonious Monk’s years as a Prestige recording artist (1952-1954) were tough times for the legendary composer/pianist. Unable to work in New York clubs due to the unjust loss of his cabaret card, and misunderstood when not ignored by listeners as well as many musicians, Monk’s profile was sustained primarily by his appearances as both leader and sideman on a series of Prestige sessions released in the then-new LP format.
The present collection, which samples three of those sessions, appeared as critics and fans were beginning to catch up to Monk’s singular genius and remains one of the best introductions to his iconoclastic brilliance. Three tracks feature leading Monk disciple Sonny Rollins, hitting early peaks on two standards and stretching out on “Friday the 13th,” plus a pair of tracks in which Monk’s greatest studio trio (with Percy Heath on bass and Art Blakey on drums) introduce the classic “Work” and “Nutty.”

The Monkees - Good Times! (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/48kHz

Artist: The Monkees
Title: Good Times!
Genre: Rock, Pop Rock, Soft Rock
Label: © Rhino Entertainment
Release Date: 2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 48kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 43:35
Recorded: 1967, 1968, 1969, February–March 2016

The highly anticipated new album Good Times! by The Monkees is the band's first new album in 20 years and tied to their 50th anniversary and extensive North American Tour.
Good Times! finds all three surviving band members (Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, and Peter Tork) taking turns on lead vocals, playing a wide range of instruments, and sharing new compositions. The unmistakable voice of the late Davy Jones is also included with a vintage vocal on the Neil Diamond-penned "Love To Love."
To produce the new album, the band found the perfect musical co-conspirator in Grammy® and Emmy®-winning songwriter Adam Schlesinger (Fountains Of Wayne, Ivy). Schlesinger also wrote "Our Own World" and co-wrote the album's finale with Dolenz, aptly titled "I Was There (And I'm Told I Had A Good Time)."
Much like The Monkees' early albums, Good Times! features tracks written specifically for the band by some of the music world's most gifted songwriters, including Rivers Cuomo of Weezer ("She Makes Me Laugh"), Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie ("Me & Magdalena"), Andy Partridge of XTC ("You Bring The Summer"), as well as a song co-written by Noel Gallagher and Paul Weller ("Birth Of An Accidental Hipster").
