Buddy Collette „The Polyhedric”

Buddy Collette „The Polyhedric”:

AllMusic: „During a 1961 trek to Italy to perform at the annual San Remo Jazz Festival, Buddy Collette detoured to Milan long enough to record The Polyhedric, a superb if virtually unknown session that fuses the saxophonist’s angular West Coast sensibilities with the more straight-ahead approach then dominant among the postwar European jazz cognoscenti”.

Jonah Jones „Muted Jazz”

Jonah Jones „Muted Jazz”:

AllMusic: „In 1957, trumpeter Jonah Jones hit it big with his version of „On the Street Where You Live,” which is included on this LP. Jones’ „muted jazz” featured melodic but swinging versions of standards played with a shuffle beat by his quartet nightly at the Embers, and he would keep the attractive — if eventually predictable — formula alive into the late ’60s”.

Ben Webster „Stormy Weathers”

Ben Webster „Stormy Weathers”:

Nagranie technicznie chropowate, ale tak właśnie musiało brzmieć w klubach połowy lat 60. AllMusic: „Recorded around a month after the veteran tenor Ben Webster moved to Europe, this high-quality set with pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Niels Pederson, and drummer Alex Riel features Webster stretching out on the traditional „Londonderry Air,” two originals, and seven familiar but fresh standards. Webster, although neglected in the U.S., was still in peak form in the mid-’60s, as this and his other Black Lion sets covering the period show”.
