One of Duke Ellington's most delightful adaptations of another composer's material is his reworking of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite into jazz; this version is a classic and well worth treasuring. Ellington's reworking of Grieg's Peer Gynt Suites (including In the Hall of the Mountain King) and his tribute to John Steinbeck (Suite Thursday) are also among his better extended works, really utilizing the unique tones of his distinctive sidemen. Highly recommended. © TiVo

Bill Evans' Fantasy recordings of 1973-1979 have often been underrated in favor of his earlier work but, as this remarkable nine-CD set continually shows, the influential pianist continued to grow as a musician through the years while holding on to his original conception and distinctive sound. The collection has all of the 98 selections recorded at Evans' 11 Fantasy sessions, including nine numbers from a previously unreleased 1976 concert with his trio. In addition, Evans' appearance on Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz radio program is tacked on as a bonus and it is actually among McPartland's finest shows, a fascinating hour of discussion and music with Evans. Nearly all of the performances on this box (which includes duets with bassist Eddie Gomez and singer Tony Bennett, trio outings with Gomez and either Marty Morell or Eliot Zigmund on drums, and a couple of quintet sets with the likes of tenors Harold Land and Warne Marsh, altoist Lee Konitz, guitarist Kenny Burrell, bassist Ray Brown, and drummer Philly Joe Jones) is available individually on CD but Bill Evans' more passionate collectors will certainly want this definitive box. The only minus is Gene Lees' typically self-serving liner notes; he always seems to love to write about himself. © Scott Yanow /TiVo

Even in 1968 when the jazz avant-garde was becoming quite influential, tenor saxophonist Illinois Jacquet played in his own timeless style, performing in an idiom little changed during the previous 20 years. With the assistance of pianist Barry Harris, bassist Ben Tucker, and drummer Alan Dawson, Jacquet is heard throughout this CD reissue (which adds a previously unissued "Don't Blame Me" to the original program) swinging hard and generally expressing himself in a typically extroverted fashion. "Bottoms Up" (a relative of "Flying Home"), "Jivin' with Jack the Bellboy," and Jacquet's excellent original ballad "You Left Me All Alone" are most memorable. © Scott Yanow /TiVo

There are more than 130 recording sessions featuring this French pianist, although only a few in which he is credited as the leader. Thus the title of Real Me from 1970 may refer to something that has been held back in the many other contexts in which Persiani has been featured. A good deal of his work has been accompanying star soloists visiting France on tour over a period of nearly four decades beginning in the mid-'40s, so an artistic hammerlock could be understandable. Speaking of wrestling holds, a label named Black and Blue documented much of the scene, adopting Persiani as a house pianist in a rhythm section that often featured drummer Oliver Jackson, nicknamed "Bops Junior." Jackson's hard swinging and effortless ballad float help mightily on tracks such as "Straight Life" and "What Am I Living For" respectively, the pianist sometimes sounding like part of revealing his true self involves spacing out. The same cannot be said about "I Didn't Know What Time It Was," a spot-on play-through that makes a mockery of its title, or the pianist's original and very lovely "Gwendolyn," the latter concluding the collection of a dozen pieces. The CD reissue of this session added a few bonus tracks, allowing listeners an interesting chance to compare performances of the difficult "King Porter Stomp" of Jelly Roll Morton. Persiani would probably not win a match in ragtime -- at the same time it is always fun to hear a pianist take on this kind of material, even if it winds up wrestling them to the ground. © Eugene Chadbourne /TiVo
