Henry Kaiser & Wadada Leo Smith
Yo Miles!
The astonishingly funky music of Miles Davis in the 1970's was yet another fascinating stage in the art of this great jazz master. Recently Miles' music from this time has been regaining prominence as the original albums are re-issued and various musicians explore the possibilities of this innovative period. Critically-acclaimed avant-guitarist Henry Kaiser joined forces with respected trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith to create contemporary versions of several Miles Davis compositions from the Seventies. Other notable featured musicians include John Medeski of Medeski, Martin, Wood, Elliot Sharp, Michael Manring and others. Material on this album includes versions of several of Miles' most notable compositions from the Seventies-- "Big Fun," "Agharta," "Black Satin" and material from "Jack Johnson." True to the spirit of Miles Davis, these versions are fresh explorations using the entire band as an instrument.    $16.99

Lavay Smith & Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers
Everybody's Talkin' 'Bout Miss Thing!
People have said that the retro-swing rennaissance of the late 20th Century has "died"...but where ? Maybe it is not as big or "everywhere" that it was, but it is still very alive...the Swing shows are still selling out, the dance contests are as crowded with both young and old, and San Francisco's own Lavay Smith & Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers are "hotter" than ever, as you will see when listening to her new CD, released on March 14, 2000! Featuring 16 fabulous new hits, and many original, including "Voo-It", "Winter Wonderland", "Sent For You Yesterday", and "Honey Pie". "If you want to hear a new jazz/blues singer who truly can swing and sing in the tradition of the real thing(1920's-40's), go see Lavay Smith & Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers next time ther're in town, and buy all her Cd's. Her backup band can play anything from classic blues to be-bop oriented material. If you are into jazz this is for you. Lavay Smith & Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers are the best new (meaning old 20's, sounding) thing today, they are great!"    $16.99

Lounge Brigade
Put Some Style In It
One of the most exciting trends of the past few years has been the lounge/swing/bachelor pad renaissance. Bands such as Combustible Edison, Cherry Poppin' Daddies, Royal Crown Revue, Big Bad Vodoo Daddy, and others have hit MTV, pop radio, and countless live venues as clubs all over the country have weekly "Swing" nights. The Lounge Brigade is an all-star group of musicians who helped create the lounge/swing era back in the Forties and Fifties: Bucky Pizzarelli and Al Caiola on guitars, Bobby Rosengarten on drums, Phil Bonder on sax, flute and clarinet, Havie Swartz on bass, and Warren Chiasson on vibes. They were the players behind Frank Sinatra, Henry Mancini, Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gorme, Enoch Light, Jakie Gleason, and other stars. Put Some Style In It finds the Lounge Brigade doing what it has always done: playing swingin' versions of hits of today, yesterday, and tomorrow ! So you get a sparkling Sammy Davis Jr. medely, some "exotica" hits, the Star Wars theme, as well as lounge versions of Nirvana's "Heart Shaped Box", Beck's "Where's It At", and No Doubt's "Don't Speak". This is one of the most incredible CDís we have listened to recently!    $12.99

Wayne Gorbea's Salsa Picante

Wayne Gorbea's Salsa Picante
COGELE EL GUSTO (Salsa)
After hearing this CD, we just had to offer it to our customers ! Latin music has a growing audience discovering the joy of danceable rhythms and hot horn solos. As a result, classic salsa is making a very strong comeback. Wayne Gorbea has been a popular bandleader on the New York Latin music scene for 15 years. Leading his "crackerjack" nine-piece band with dynamic piano playing and arrangements, Gorbea's band lives up to it's name. Cogele El Gusto delivers hot, funky, irresistibly, danceable salsa with a rambunctious Bronx flavor. An initial limited pressing on Gorbea's own imprint led to widespread Latin radio play across America as well as internationally. Since partner dancing, as is Swing dancing, is rapidly gaining in popularity, it seems logical that another "rave" should be salsa ! Try Wayne Gorbea for some really danceable rhythms.    $15.99


Wolfgang Parker
DP109
Wolfgang Parker
Hep City Swing
To quote Swingtime Magazine on Wolfgang Parker and Hep City Swing-- "In nearby Columbus, the midwestern capital of punk, Wolfgang Parker has been applying his trade for over 5 years. Parker is the bass-playing, songwriting, frontman, singer and namesake of acid swing's most powerful trio. Acting as a bridge between punk and swing, Parker's ensemble only resembles a swing band in fashion, image and style -- attitude is an entirely different thing. This is not a swing band as you know it; this is a rock trio that swings "it's bloody ass off". It's hard to imagine "Sing,Sing,Sing" without any horns but that is exactly what the Parker version is: hornless, with a power guitar feedbacking, wailing elephant screams, propulsive electric bass, and pounding drums sculpting a post-apocalyptic sonic landscape. Maybe power swing isn't your thing, but for those who come from the hard rock lineage, this is the best of both worlds: head-banging swing. In Columbus, where punk is king, you've got to have a lot of attitude to break through the throngs, and that's exactly what Wolfgang Parker does. One can only imagine what would happen should Mr. Parker and crew ever hook up with a horn section. Kablooey, Baby!"    $14.99
