Artist Esperanza Spalding Junjo Jazz Product Type Compact Disc

Attributes: Discs:1 Country:Eu. Country: EU. Label: Ayva Music ( AYVA ). Product Type: Compact Disc. Catalog : 36. UPC: 8427328883368. Configuration: D: CD. The debut recording by acoustic upright bassist and vocalist Esperanza Spalding, a native of Portland, OR, residing in Boston, MA, is an exercise in joy and freedom. Well rendered for such a very young musician, it’s quite notable, considering the certainty of her concept and clarity of her vision. While steeped in contemporary jazz, there are Latin flavors, unabashed free moments, and some implied and direct swing. Further, it is an expression of her well-being, optimism, and future hope for her life in this music. Also in her peer group, pianist Aruan Ortiz and drummer Francisco Mela add a hundredfold to this music and establish themselves as leaders-to-be, and are quite capable partners for Spalding’s wonderful sounds. The first piece, a take of the Jimmy Rowles evergreen “The Peacocks,” lets you know something special is going on. Spalding’s bass leads out with the probing piano of Ortiz as wordless vocals and a modal jam all precede the melody, followed by a free section. The imagination quotient of this interpretation is off the charts. “Mompouana” is a most impressive circular tune surrounding the sweetness and light of Spalding’s voice in a 9/8 time signature, choppy piano motifs, upper to midrange drama, and thoughtful, intricate secondary lines. In their ultimate playful state, “Perazu n” and “Perazela” show Spalding’s ability to scat, with Ortiz on the former and furiously alongside Mela on the latter track. The other covers are a darker-than-the-original rendition of Chick Corea’s neo-bopper “Humpty Dumpty” and the personable, lighthearted “Loro,” written by Egberto Gismonti.

Artist Ella Fitzgerald Icon Love Songs Jazz Music Vocals Product Type

Track Title. 1 I’m Beginning To See The Light. 2 The Man I Love. 3 Just One Of Those Things. 4 Someone To Watch Over Me. 5 Lover. 6 Always. 7 From This Moment On. 8 All The Things You Are. 9 Love You Madly. 10 I’ve Got A Crush On You. 11 You’re My Thrill. 12 I’ve Got You Under My Skin. For the Love Songs subcategory of Universal Music’s Icon series of discount-priced compilations, the Ella Fitzgerald entry is, unsurprisingly, a set of her performances of songs by Irving Berlin, Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Cole Porter, and Richard Rodgers, songwriters to whom she devoted songbook albums. Of course, most of the songs Fitzgerald sang in her career were love songs, so this is really just a sampler of her work, with ballads alternated by uptempo numbers. The love isn’t always happy, or even present, in the lyrics. Ira Gershwin’s words to “The Man I Love” and “Someone to Watch Over Me” find the singer conjuring an idealized partner, not singing to a real one, and Porter’s “Just One of Those Things” is a jaunty kiss-off to a brief affair. But more often than not, the songs are expressions of love, even if Fitzgerald, typically, sings them with more of a concern for musical appeal and jazz improvisation than as sincere expressions of meaning. The arrangements are in the swing mode, and the singer, while leaving room for solos, tends to sing straight at first, then return to jazz things up. This is a singer who loves music more than any lover in sight, but with a voice like that, it’s hard to blame her. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi.
