Review by Nathan Bush In 1968, having completed a five-year stint with Miles Davis, Ron Carter’s career was wide open. Finding himself in typically high demand, the bassist decided not to make any long-term commitments (though he continued to join individual recording dates), opting instead to develop his solo career. In 1971, he released Uptown Conversation (Atlantic). Shortly after, he ...

Review by Scott Yanow Most of organist Shirley Scott’s records in the 1960s featured her husband, tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine, so this trio effort with bassist Ron Carter and drummer Jimmy Cobb was a change of pace. As usual, Scott features an off-the-wall tune (“What The World Needs Now Is Love”) in her repertoire, along with standards (including “On A ...

John Arthur “Jaki” Byard (June 15, 1922 – February 11, 1999) was an American jazz multi-instrumentalist, composer and arranger. Mainly a pianist, he also played tenor and alto saxophones, among several other instruments. He was known for his eclectic style, incorporating everything from ragtime and stride to free jazz. Byard played with trumpeter Maynard Ferguson in the late 1950s and ...

Review by Scott Yanow For a time in the early 1990s, some of the CDs from the Japanese DIW label were made available domestically through Columbia. This trio date by pianist Harold Mabern, bassist Ron Carter and drummer Jack DeJohnette has Mabern originals dedicated to Sonny Stitt and Wayne Shorter, plus some offbeat standards and a pair of rarely performed ...

Review by Ken Dryden Like all too many dates led by jazz musicians for Command, this Toots Thielemans record is handicapped by rather run of the mill uninspiring arrangements, on this occasion by Jack Andrews. Fortunately, the considerable talent on this session means that at least some of the solos by Thielemans and his associates (including Dick Hyman, Gene Bertoncini, ...

Editorial Reviews Two lost smokers from the man Lionel Hampton called “The greatest vibes player in the world,” Johnny Lytle both very different from anything else he ever recorded! 1971’s The Soulful Rebel has a great blend of Hammond and Fender Rhodes along with the vibes soaring out in a massively funky sextet with bass from Ron Carter and congas ...

Review by Steve Leggett Although she freely offered Jimmy Smith as her main influence, Philadelphia’s Shirley Scott brought her own mixture of sophistication and soul jazz funk to her Hammond B-3 recordings. Less blues-based than Smith, she had a softer tone and tackled a wider range of material, although, like Smith, she was arguably at her best in the trio ...

All the featured performances are excellent, Paul Desmond’s playing is superb, taking a little more of a back seat, but with some beautiful, memorable phrasing. Not mentioned in other reviews are three vocal tracks featuring Wanda de Sa, “To Say Goodbye”, “Circles” and “Crystal Illusions”. In “To Say Goodbye”, she was forced by the recording schedule and low register of ...

Throughout his career, Bobby Timmons was typecast as a soulful and blues-oriented pianist due to his hits (“Moanin ‘,” “This Here” and “Dis Dat”). But as he shows on this 1963 trio date (with either Sam Jones or Ron Carter on bass and drummer Connie Kay), Timmons was actually a well-rounded player when inspired. The repertoire on his CD ranges ...
