(2016/Warner Music Australia/Festival) 20 tracks (56:15) 1962-1974 with 8 page color booklet. - Klasse Latin Compilation mit 20 Hits und Raritäten aus den 1960er Jahren, als Bossa Nova und Samba erstmals in den USA Mainstream vordrangen. Zusammengestellt von den Acid-Jazz-Pionieren Chris Bangs und Gilles Peterson. Featuring Elvis Presley, Astrud Gilberto, Aretha Franklin, Marcos Valle, Dizzy Gillespie, Sergio Mendes, u. v.a. - The bossa nova has its roots in the songwriters and singers who emerged from Brazil´s late 50s and early 60s golden age. When the newly democratic country was revelling in its position as the wealthiest, and most advanced of the Southern American countries. Its football team had not only won the 1958 World Cup in Sweden, but done it with style unearthing the 18 year old talent Pele. In Oscar Niemeyer it had another world-beater, this time in the world of architecture - his buildings would come to define mid-Century modernism in his home country. - Musically the like of Luis Bonfa, Joao Gilberto and Tom Jobim were beginning to forge the new beat that would become known as bossa nova, and the rhythm especially captivated a group of American jazzmen who passed through the country, they travelled on tours sponsored by the State Department and designed to showcase US culture to the developing world. The likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Bud Shank, Herbie Mann, Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd all made the journey, and returned wanting to tell their home country about the fabulous new music. - The latter were inspired to rnake an album called ´Jazz Samba´ for Verve, and by the summer of 1962 it had climbed all the way to #1 on the Billboard charts, boosted by the success of Jobim and Newton Mendonca´s tune ´Desafinado´ which was lifted as a single. It began the great bossa nova craze. Of course jazz musicians got on board. It isn´t often that commercial music and jazz become bedfellows, and when they do everyone wants a slice. Stan Getz proved lightning could strike twice when he recorded ´The Girl From Ipanema´ with Gilberto. The English language parts were sung by Gilberto´s wife Astrid and made her a star as the single went to #5 in the pop charts. She continued to record for Verve making a series of sophisticated jet-set evoking albums, which included such gems as ´Take Me To Aruanda´. - ´Ipanema´ itself became a standard, capable of being treated in many ways. Not many got close to the gently swaying cool of Lou Rawls in his majestic jazz-soul phase at Capitol. His velvety vocal stylings were perfectly suited to creating a high-end Brazilian croon, and others were recording in the same vein. Jon Hendrick´s gave an early attempt via his version of ´Jive Samba´ from 1964 and the little known club singer Lonnie Sattin updated Ellington´s ´Caravan´ as the most delicious of bossa temptations. Nearly a decade later Jon Lucien, a native of the US Virgin Island, who was taking the New York jazz scene by storm, gave Lionel Bart´s ´Who Will Buy´ (from ´Oliver´) what was by then an unfashionable bossa update. - Those records had both jazz and Brazilian credibility in spades, but the same couldn´t be said about the scores, possibly hundreds of records that attempted to make the pop charts using the bossa nova beat. So Elvis Presley´s ´Bossa Nova Baby´ could have been seen as The King at the nadir of 1960s movie making slump, but actually it is a clever cash-in written by the ´Hound Dog´ and IJailhouse Rock´ writing team Leiber and Stoller, and Elvis rose to the occasion. L&S were also the team behind Tippie and The Clovers ´My Heart Said (Bossa Nova´ which was released on their own Tiger label. Similar in style Is Doris Troy´s self-written ´Bossa Nova Blues´. The singer was a big favourite of The Beatles and other British sixties groups, and later recorded for the Fab Four´s Apple label. Slightly later, but part of the same New York Atlantic Records scene is Aretha Franklin who wrote ´Don´t Let Me Lose This Dream´ for her label debut ´I Never Loved A Man The Way I Loved You´ and its rhythm is pure bossa. - The US love of Bossa Nova swept up numerous Brazilians and gave them a shot at international stardom (or at least a residency in a Vegas). Organist Walter Wanderley was perhaps the oddest of these. Juxtaposing cheesy roller skating rink organ, over a bossa beat, he was extraordinarily popular for a while with his mixture of covers of pop tunes and Brazilian standards. Marcos Valle was another, an exceptional

This is one gorgeous ballad for female vocalist and big band. Educator/arranger/bandleader Frank Mantooth has a knack for picking wonderful songs, and this is one of his personal favorites. From the 1954 film Love Me or Leave Me, originally sung by the legendary Doris Day, this song will give you goose bumps with its beautiful melody and lyrics. A lush flugelhorn solo with simple backgrounds and beautifully voiced saxophone scoring provide just a few ingredients for this great chart. Your female vocalist will stop the show with this arrangement, the perfect choice for concert or dance. Truly superb.
Das Box Set I Believe über Frankie Laine mit 6 CDs, einem Buch und 163 Songs, die eine Gesamtspielzeit von 7 Stunden und ungefähr 18 Minuten vorweisen. Dann folgte Frankie Laine seinem Produzenten Mitch Miller zu Columbia Records, wo er 13 Jahre blieb. In diesem Zeitraum ist Frankie internationale Fan-Gemeinde geradezu explodiert. Sein Repertoire, das zuvor in großen Teilen aus Standards und Jazz-Songs bestanden hatte, wurde unter Mitch Millers Leitung stilistisch offener - vor allem durch integrierte Pop-Elemente, umfangreicheres Backing und durch zahlreiche Duette mit den Stars seines neuen Labels und solchen, die es erst noch werden wollten. Dieses zweite CD-Box-Set von Frankie Laine (von drei geplanten) deckt die Columbia-Jahre von 1951 bis 1955 ab. Enthalten sind Hits wie Jezebel, Rose, Rose I Love You, Hey, Good Lookin´, Jealousy, Hambone, High Noon, I Believe, und Hey, Joe dazu die kompletten Alben ´One For My Baby´, ´Mr. Rhythm´, ´Lovers´ Laine´ und ´Command Performance´. Außerdem gibt es alle Duette mit Jimmy Boyd, Doris Day, Jo Stafford und den Four Lads. Hinzu kommen die ´Jazz Spectacular´-Sessions mit einer Allstar-Band, bestehend aus Buck Clayton, Budd Johnson, Sir Charles Thompson, Hilton Jefferson, J. J. Johnson und Kai Winding. Ebenfalls im Set: die Soundtracks zu den Filmen ´Sunny Side Of The Street´, ´Rainbow Round My Shoulder´ und ´Bring Your Smile Along´. Und selbstverständlich bieten wir, wie es von Bear Family Records erwartet wird, bislang unveröffentlichte Master und Alternativ-Versionen an. Zur Box gehören ferner ein vorzüglich illustriertes Hardcover-Buch. Es enthält eine umfassende Discographie sowie mehrere aktuelle Interviews: mit Jo Stafford, Bernie Toorish von den Four Lads, mit Frankie Laine´s langjährigem Begleiter Al Lerner und natürlich ein Gespräch mit Frankie Laine persönlich.
Rick Martin loved music and the music loved him. He could pick up a tune so quickly that it didn´t matter to the Cotton Club boss that he was underage, or to the guys in the band that he was just a white kid. He started out in the slums of LA with nothing, and he ended up on top of the game in the speakeasies and nightclubs of New York. But while talent and drive are all you need to make it in music, they aren´t enough to make it through a life. Dorothy Baker´s Young Man with a Horn is widely regarded as the first jazz novel, and it pulses with the music that defined an era. Baker took her inspiration from the artistry-though not the life-of legendary horn player Bix Beiderbecke, and the novel went on to be adapted into a successful movie starring Kirk Douglas, Lauren Bacall, and Doris Day.
