Released in 1991 (after Flim and the BB's had moved from DMP to Warner Bros.), this best-of compilation spans 1982-88 and contains two previously unreleased tunes, as well as material that had already been heard on the DMP albums Neon, Tunnel, Tricycle, Big Notes and The Further Adventures of Flim & the BB's. Spyro Gyra was always the Minneapolis unit's primary influence, and it's hard to miss Spyro's influence on such congenial pop-jazz as "Heart Throb," "Just Another Beautiful Day" and "Light at the End of the Tunnel." Much like Spyro's early efforts (before that band became so shamelessly formulaic), these songs proved quite accessible to pop audiences but aren't without bite or integrity. The main difference between much of this album and Flim and the BB's' early-1990s work on Warner Bros. is the element of sincerity -- in contrast to the calculated nature of those recordings, most of the songs on this generally decent collection come across as sincere and heartfelt. The disc's only truly dreadful offering is "Someday," a schmaltzy, boring adult contemporary number that finds keyboardist Billy Barber performing a vocal duet with singer Kathy Mueller. Otherwise, Vintage BB's isn't bad. If one could purchase only one Flim and the BB's CD, this would be the logical choice.

Miles Davis in 10 albums

Thirty years after his death, Miles Davis is still one of the most important musicians of his time. The trumpeter's impressive discography perfectly sums up his perpetually questioning, probing attitude; and also shows how his influence reaches out beyond the world of jazz. These ten albums, selected subjectively from a sea of revolutionary works, are testament to that fact.

ECM in 10 Albums

“The most beautiful sound next to silence.” That’s been ECM’s motto for the past fifty years. Manfred Eicher, the charismatic founder of the Munich label, seems to live in a parallel universe. And jazz sounds different on planet ECM. It is often thanks to this label that artists such as Keith Jarrett, Charles Lloyd, Jan Garbarek, Chick Corea have recorded their best records. Even more so than with Blue Note or Impulse! Limiting the whole history of this extraordinary label to just 10 records would be mission impossible. So, these 10 albums will tell not “the” story but “a” story of ECM.

Herbie Hancock - Hunt for the Funk

Along with his former employer Miles Davis, pianist Herbie Hancock is the other founding father of jazz-fusion. In 1973, his album "Head Hunters" laid down the Holy Scriptures of the most successful union of jazz improvisation and funk psychedelic trance. Afros and platform boots all around!
