Rosemary Clooney - Girl Singer




In the 90s, Clooney had a really ripe voice.
Enjoyable album!

Django Reinhardt - Retrospective 1934 - 1953
via Qobuz




There is a kind of infectious optimism that this music breathes, a perfect antidote to these times.
What a master of the instrument Dango was!

This gorgeously packaged three-disc box set collects a range of guitar genius Django Reinhardt's work from the pre- and post-war periods. The first disc consists almost exclusively of the recordings he made with the original Quintette du Hot Club de France between 1934 and 1940. These are some of Reinhardt's most enduring sides, and include classics like "Minor Swing," "Sweet Georgia Brown," and "Swing 39," with plenty of chugging rhythmic intensity from the drumless ensemble and showers of dazzling leads from violinist Stephane Grappelli.

The second disc, which covers '40 through '47, mixes Quintette du Hot Club dates with some of the artist's other sessions--including big-band recordings--on a range of standards ("Embraceable You") and originals (the beautiful "Nuages"). The third disc spans '47 through '53, and finds Reinhardt moving away somewhat from his "gypsy jazz" and more toward a mainstream swing sound. The thread through the entire set, naturally, is the virtuosity of Reinhardt's playing, the speed and grace of his lines, and the poetry of his expression. An annotated booklet packed with photographs accompanies this superbly selected box, making RETROSPECTIVE a definitive overview, and an essential purchase.

I saw him live in our fantastic jazz club in the 90s.
Too bad it doesn't exist anymore...

I have to say, it was a very good concert, with a very enthusing Pizzarelli.

This album contains a lot of the work he played then.

Relaxing time, and this is ideal for that!
Christian McBride is outstanding on the bass by the way.

Continuing this set.
We might complement it with a French movie afterwards.
Netflix does have a decent selection of them.

Pat Metheny - Bright Size Life

With Jaco Pastorius (bass) and Bob Moses (drums).
His first as a leader.
The ECM label really has a nose for talent!

Very nice Bart. This has probably my favorite Sinatra song on it, “I’ve Got You Under My Skin.” I like this version with Nelson Riddle best. It’s a little different from the earlier Riddle version on Songs For Swingin’ Lovers, a little more rhythmic drive and the band really swings.
