Workin' with the Miles Davis Quintet by Miles Davis Quintet( Recording )

3 editions published between 1987 and 2003 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Se presentan ocho temas perfectamente complementados, conformando una unidad con sentido y cohesión, un apasionante viaje por los territorios del jazz. Workin' es uno de esos discos que apasiona a aficionados, músicos y críticos. Es materia de estudio, de deleite y de contemplación y - perdón por ser, nuevamente, absoluto - no debería faltar en la discografía de ningún aficionado al jazz

May the music never end by Shirley Horn( Recording )

7 editions published in 2003 in 3 languages and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Es siempre un placer escuchar la voz de esta veterana cantante que, sin dejar de seducir con su plácida calidez, invita a dejarse llevar en un viaje por sendos clásicos del pop, la chanson y el jazz, recreándolos con ésta afectación tan propia del blues más descarnado así como con el desenfado más propio de Broadway. Su ranciedad es un elogio, pues pocos artistas como ella quedan ya de la época en que la legitimidad del jazz se adquiría por pura gracia y necesidad

Blue moon : the New York session by Ahmad Jamal( Recording )

19 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blue Moon n'est pas juste le nouvel album d'Ahmad Jamal. C'est son nouveau chef-d'oeuvre, irrigué par une émotion qui nous rappelle ses plus grandes heures, celles de Chess et d'Impulse! Trois compositions originales majestueuses (Autumn Rain, I Remember Italy, Morning Mist), brillantes relectures des mythes américains, le film noir (Laura), Broadway (Invitation, This Is The Life), la chanson populaire (Gypsy), la grande histoire du jazz bien sûr (Woody'n You), et ce Blue Moon à l'intensité bouleversante et qui est à lui seul un résumé du nouveau monde, puisqu'il a été chanté par Bill Monroe, Elvis Presley, et Mel Tormé - pour ne citer qu'eux. Chacun des neuf morceaux est un hommage aux grands espaces, une réinvention du swing, un prétexte à des vertiges mélodiques, un appel vers des syncopes rythmiques à vous couper le souffle. Entouré de trois gardiens du tempo hors pair, Ahmad Jamal est au sommet de son art ; naguère pianiste virtuose d'un genre nommé jazz, il est désormais l'apôtre en chef de la musique classique américaine
It's magic by Ahmad Jamal( Recording )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce nouvel album d'Ahmad Jamal exprime la quintessence et toutes les facettes de son style, de son art du rythme et de la brisure, de son invention mélodique, comme il nous montre l'exceptionnelle cohésion de son trio, augmenté ici du percussionniste Manolo Badrena. Quel que soit le tempo, le grand pianiste de Pittsburgh qui aura 78 ans le 2 juillet, sur des compositions anciennes et nouvelles, réalise la synthèse entre un jeu plein d'espaces comme dans le célèbre album sur lequel figure Poincania et la profusion de phrases chantantes et jamais achevées des dernières années où la luxuriance de son jeu pianistique virevoltant manifestait une expression très extravertie. Ecoutez en particulier "Swahililand" et "Arabesque" et vous comprendrez pourquoi Miles Davis faisait de l'art du piano de Jamal une référence pour ses propres musiciens et pourquoi nous, mélomanes, nous écoutons avec ravissement et bonheur cette musique jubilatoire et belle qui exprime un désir de vie immense."It's magic"!

Erroll Garner : no one can hear you read( Visual )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a triumphant career that lasted forty years Erroll Garner pushed the playability of the piano to its limits, developed an international reputation, and made an indelible mark on the jazz world. And yet, his story has never been told. Until now. Atticus Brady's new film uses an astonishing array of archival materials interwoven with interviews with friends, family, and fellow musicians, and features commentary from Woody Allen; Ahmad Jamal; Tonight Show host Steve Allen; Erroll's sister, Ruth Garner Moore; pianist and arranger Dick Hyman; Columbia Records executive George Avakian; Erroll's bass player Ernest McCarty; Erroll's biographer Jim Doran; jazz journalist John Murph; dancer/choreographer Maurice Hines; and Erroll's daughter Kim Garner, who goes on the record about her father for the first time. The film explores Erroll's childhood in Pittsburgh; his meteoric rise in popularity while playing on 52nd street, New York's famed jazz epicenter; the origins of his most famous album (Concert By The Sea) and his most famous composition (Misty); his singular, virtuosic piano style; and his dynamic personality, both on and off the stage
