Jorge Bolet - A Chopin Piano Recital (1961/2013) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Сomposer: Frédéric Chopin (1810-1849)
Artist: Jorge Bolet
Title: A Chopin Piano Recital
Genre: Classical
Label: © Everest Records | Countdown Media GmbH
Release Date: 1961/2013
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 41:18
Recorded: 1961, Belock Recording Studio, Bayside, NY

Ask almost any music lover – and certainly any pianist – who his favorite composer of short piano pieces is, and the answer is almost surely to be “Chopin, of course”. Then ask him which are his favorite Chopin works, and the chances are he will head his list with the ten compositions which comprise this recorded recital. This, then, might be described as a sort of “all-time Chopin hit parade”. Jorge Bolet, whose recent Liszt recordings for Everest have proved so exciting, demonstrates here that he is equally as masterful in interpreting the romantic music of Chopin. Once again, too, the Everest engineers have demonstrated their unique ability to capture Bolet’s brilliant tone with the same naturalness as it emerges in the concert hall.

Joe Farrell - Upon This Rock (1974/2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Artist: Joe Farrell
Title: Upon This Rock
Genre: Jazz, Hard Bop, Jazz Rock, Soul-Jazz, Crossover Jazz
Label: © CTI Records, a division of Creed Taylor, Inc. | King Record Co., Ltd.
Release Date: 1974/2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit
Source: e-onkyo
Duration: 00:37:03
Recorded: March 1974, #2 October 1973 at Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey


Massive music from funky reedman Joe Farrell – quite possibly our favorite of his legendary 70s run for CTI – and that's saying a lot, given how great those records are! There's a lean, edgey groove to the set that's totally great – a lot more bite than usual for CTI, thanks to these wonderfully angular lines from Joe on tenor, soprano sax, and flute – backed up with some wicked guitar work from Joe Beck, who really matches Farrell's energy – in a core quartet with Herb Bushler on bass and Jim Madison on drums. One cut features a guest group – with Herbie Hancock on piano, Steve Gadd on drums, and Don Alias on percussion – and the album includes the massively break-heavy title cut "Upon This Rock", plus "Seven Seas", "I Won't Be Back", and "Weathervane".

Joe Farrell - Moon Germs (1973/2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Artist: Joe Farrell
Title: Moon Germs
Genre: Jazz, Hard Bop, Fusion, Crossover Jazz, Straight-ahead/Mainstream Jazz, Saxophone Jazz
Label: © CTI Records, a division of Creed Taylor, Inc. | King Record Co., Ltd.
Release Date: 1973/2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit
Source: e-onkyo
Duration: 00:37:33
Recorded: November 21, 1972 at Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey


Recorded in 1972 and released in 1973 with Herbie Hancock, Stanley Clarke, and Jack DeJohnette, Joe Farrell's Moon Germs was a foray into the electric side of jazz. On the opener, "Great George," Farrell leads off with the hint of a melody before careening into legato streams of thought along striated intervallic paths. DeJohnette is like a machine gun, quadruple-timing the band as Clarke moves against the grain in a series of fours and eights, and Hancock's attempts to keep the entire thing anchored are almost for naught. On the title track there is more of a funk backdrop, but the complex, angular runs and insane harmonic reaches Farrell attempts on his soprano, crack, falter, and ultimately turn into something else; the sheer busy-ness of the track is dazzling. "Bass Folk Song" by Clarke, is the only thing on the record that actively engages melody rather than harmonic structures. Farrell uses his flute and Hancock strides into the same kind of territory he explored with Miles Davis, chopping up chordal phrases into single lines and feeding them wholesale to the running pair of frontmen--in this case Clarke and Farrell. DeJohnette uses a Latin backdrop to hang his drumming on and pursues a circular, hypnotic groove on the cymbals and toms. It's a gorgeous piece of music and utilizes an aspect of space within the melodic frame that the rest of these firebrand tunes do not. This is sci-fi Farrell at his creative best. --AllMusic Review by Thom Jurek

Jim Snidero - MD66 (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/44,1kHz

Artist: Jim Snidero
Title: MD66
Genre: Jazz
Label: © Savant Records
Release Date: 2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 44.1kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 00:52:38


Over the course of the past three decades alto saxophonist and composer Jim Snidero has been constantly pushing himself to explore new territories and expand his outlook. In 1989, his extraordinary album Blue Afternoon made its way into The Penguin Jazz Guide: The History of the Music in the 1001 Best Albums. Later on he made his mark in the sax-with-strings department, not only playing at the top of his game, but also composing and arranging all of the music on the project. Most recently he's impressed more than a few listeners with a spate of fine albums on Savant. On this his latest release, Snidero tackles open modal forms and uses his unfettered imagination as a portal into free(r) territory, and takes his soloing to the next level by working an inside/outside approach that's rooted in the structure and style of each song but radical enough to move in wildly unexpected directions. This is a musical promised land where revelations, whether subtle or seismic in nature, are guided by revolution.

Jerry Bergonzi - Spotlight on Standards (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: Jerry Bergonzi
Title: Spotlight on Standards
Genre: Jazz
Label: © Savant Records
Release Date: 2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 01:03:19
Recorded: Artesuono Recording Studio, Cavalicco, Udine, Italy, 03/22/2016


There's an old saying that a great jazz musician never plays a song the same way once. That could certainly be said of Jerry Bergonzi. He is an intellectual artist of uncompromising integrity and a bold, original composer. On Jerry's new Savant recording he returns to the organ-tenor trio format after a long hiatus from it. From the opening track, Cy Coleman's “Witchcraft” with its hypnotic organ vamp and “bewitching” chord substitutions Jerry gives to the first 8 bars, you know this isn't going to be your parents' organ-tenor gig. Bergonzi and his discmates, Renato Chicco on organ and Andrea Michelutti on drums, take these standards down new harmonic paths and use them as a launching pad for fertile and impressive improvisation. The playing is always intense and distinctive, fresh and spontaneous.

Jane Morgan - In Gold Today's Hits...Tomorrow's Golden Favorites (1966/2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Artist: Jane Morgan
Title: Jane Morgan In Gold Today's Hits...Tomorrow's Golden Favorites
Genre: Traditional Pop, Easy Listening, Vocal Pop, Swing, Ballad
Label: © Epic Records, a division of Sony Music Entertainment
Release Date: 1966/2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit

Duration: 00:26:24
Recorded: 196?

Vocalist Jane Morgan is known best for her lone Top Ten hit, "Fascination," drawn from the 1957 Billy Wilder film Love in the Afternoon. Born in Boston (as Jane Currier) but raised in Florida, Morgan was an early success as a singer in France. She made the transition back to America as a nightclub act, and signed to Kapp in the mid-'50s.
Jane Morgan made her chart debut late in 1956, appearing alongside Roger Williams on "Two Different Worlds."
One year later she hit number seven with her theme "Fascination," based on the old French composition "Valse Tzigane." Both "The Day the Rains Came" and "With Open Arms" followed "Fascination" into the Top 40 during the late '50s, but Morgan had disappeared from the charts by the turn of the decade. (Her last hit was also a movie theme, for 1959's Happy Anniversary, directed by David Miller and featuring David Niven.) She continued recording for Kapp until 1962, and resurfaced four years later on Epic for Fresh Flavor, a rock-crossover LP that was only slightly embarrassing (her cover of "Good Lovin'" is a minor moment of kitsch). --Artist Biography by John Bush
