Vocale jazz - Verschenen op 1 januari 1956 | Verve
Decades after they were recorded, the eight volumes of the Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Complete American Songbook series became timeless relics in jazz history and of 20 th century music in general. The idea for this immense project was originally proposed by producer Norman Granz, who was the singer’s manager as well as founder of the record label Verve. The first volume, Ella Fitzgerald Sings The Cole Porter Songbook, was published in 1956 and delighted the public and critics alike – so much so that that same year Ella Fitzgerald followed up with this recording, devoted to the songbook by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart this time. As in the previous volume, Buddy Bregman, a gifted protégé of Granz who was just 25 years old at the time, conducted the orchestra and arrangements. The music in this album has a luxurious feel and oozes sensuality but Bregman’s strings never once overpower Ella’s rich and sensual voice. As for the more up-tempo tracks like the famous The Lady is a Tramp, that’s when the singer proves to us why she was crowned the queen of swing. The musicians who played in her August 1956 sessions in Los Angeles were as ever, the crème de la crème of West Coast jazz, including trumpeters Pete Candoli and Maynard Ferguson, saxophonists Bud Shank and Bob Cooper, and guitarist Barney Kessel, to name but a few. Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Rodgers & Hart Songbook was a greater success than her songbook dedicated to Cole Porter due to the sheer popularity of the New-York duo’s songs. Ella continued her project in the years that followed, with albums revisiting the repertoires of Duke Ellington in 1957, Irving Berlin in 1958, George and Ira Gershwin in 1959 Harold Arlen in 1961, Jerome Kern in 1963 and Johnny Mercer in 1964. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz
Jazz - Verschenen op 1 januari 1956 | Blue Note Records
Herbie Nichols occupies a special place on the podium of unfairly forgotten heroes in the history of jazz. This virtuoso, who died of leukaemia at the age of 44, was an innovative pianist with lyrical and rhythmic melodies that were very original for their time. Fascinated by Thelonious Monk, he found his own sound by mixing influences as disparate as Dixieland, Caribbean and classical music by the likes of Bartók or Satie. His transition to Blue Note led to three trio albums: The Prophetic Herbie Nichols Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 (recorded in May 1955 with Al McKibbon on double bass and Art Blakey on drums) and this one, Herbie Nichols Trio (recorded in August 1955 and April 1956 with Teddy Kotick and Al McKibbon on double bass and Max Roach on drums). In 1957, Herbie Nichols recorded his last record for Bethlehem Records - Love, Gloom, Cash, Love - before falling into oblivion and being eaten away by the illness that took over his life in April 1963... Years later, avant-garde musicians like Misha Mengelberg, Roswell Rudd and Steve Lacy helped bring his music back into the public eye. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz
