The Charlie Byrd Trio – The Bossa Nova Years (1991) [Reissue 2003] {SACD-R + FLAC 24-88.2}

The Charlie Byrd Trio – The Bossa Nova Years (1991) [Reissue 2003] {2.0 & 5.1}
PS3 Rip | SACD ISO | DST64 2.0 & 5.1 > 1-bit/2.8224 MHz | 54:19 minutes | Scans included | 3,04 GB
or FLAC 2.0 Stereo (converted with foobar2000 to tracks) 24bit/88,2 kHz | Scans included | 1,03 GB
Genre: Brazilian Jazz, Bossa Nova

Guitarist Charlie Byrd revisits a variety of bossa nova songs, including nine by Antonio Carlos Jobim on this pleasing and accessible set. What makes this CD stand out from his many similar dates is that Ken Peplowski’s clarinet and tenor are well featured, adding variety to the music and a lead voice for Byrd to play off of. Otherwise the music is predictably excellent, with such classics as “One Note Samba,” “Corcovado,” “Dindi,” “O Pato,” and “The Girl from Ipanema” receiving very favorable treatment.

Audio Fidelity SACD #AFZ-162 | Mastered for this SACD by Kevin Grey at Cohearent Audio
Genre: Rock

While such albums as 1980′s Permanent Waves and 1981′s Moving Pictures are usually considered Rush’s masterpieces (and with good reason), 1978′s Hemispheres is just as deserving. Maybe the fact that the album consists of only four compositions (half are lengthy pieces) was a bit too intimidating for some, but the near 20-minute-long “Cygnus X-1 Book II – Hemispheres” is arguably the band’s finest extended track. While the story line isn’t as comprehensible as “2112″ was, it’s much more consistent musically, twisting and turning through five different sections which contrast heavy rock sections against more sedate pieces. Neil Peart had become one of rock’s most accomplished lyricists by this point, as evidenced by “The Trees,” which deals with racism and inequality in a unique way (set in a forest!). And as always, the trio prove to be experts at their instruments, this time on the complex instrumental “La Villa Strangiato.” Geddy Lee’s shrieking vocals on the otherwise solid “Circumstances” may border on the irritating, but Hemispheres remains one of Rush’s greatest releases.

Ray Brown, Monty Alexander, Russell Malone (2002) [2.0 & 5.1] {SACD-R + FLAC 24-88.2}

Ray Brown, Monty Alexander, Russell Malone (2002) [2.0 & 5.1]
PS3 Rip | ISO | SACD DST64 2.0 & 5.1 > 1-bit/2.8224 MHz | 59:10 minutes | Scans included | 3,65 GB

Features 2.0 Stereo and 5.1 multichannel surround sound | Telarc # SACD-63562
Genre: Jazz

It would be nice to say that Ray Brown’s final recording session before his sudden and untimely death in the summer of 2002 resulted in a masterpiece, but although this trio session with guitarist Russell Malone and pianist Monty Alexander is perfectly serviceable, a masterpiece it is not. It’s a very attractive album — Brown was probably not capable of producing anything less as a leader — but it suffers just a bit from Alexander’s slightly sugary style and from the lack of a drummer. Recording without a drummer had been the latest thing in the jazz world for several years when this album was released, but it’s not entirely clear what the benefit of such an arrangement was supposed to be. On this album, the swing standard “Fly Me to the Moon” and Dexter Gordon’s boppish “Dexter’s Dex” would have had much more oomph with a sympathetic drummer on board (though on the latter, Malone’s Django Reinhardt-styled backup and Brown’s inimitable freight train rhythmic drive do go some distance toward making up for that lack). And the mid-tempo numbers seem to plod just a bit as well. But as always, there’s no questioning either the inventiveness of Brown’s solos or the rich sumptuousness of his enormous tone.

Oscar Peterson Trio – We Get Requests (1964) [Analogue Productions 2011] {SACD-R + FLAC 24-88.2}

Oscar Peterson Trio – We Get Requests (1964) [Analogue Productions 2011] {2.0 & 3.0}
PS3 Rip | SACD ISO | DSD/DST64 2.0 & 5.0 > 1-bit/2.8224 MHz | 39:55 minutes | Scans included | 2,26 GB
or FLAC 2.0 Stereo (converted with foobar2000 to tracks) 24bit/88,2 kHz | 40:00 mins | Scans included | 839 MB
Genre: Jazz

Pianist Oscar Peterson has long been such a consistent performer that none of his records are throwaways, but this particular set is weaker than most. Since several of the songs are the type that in the mid-’60s would get requested (such as “People,” “The Girl from Ipanema,” and “The Days of Wine and Roses”), the program would not seem to have much potential, but Peterson mostly uplifts the material (although not much could be done with “People”) and adds a few songs (such as his own “Goodbye, J.D.” and John Lewis’ “D & E”). Overall, this is a reasonably enjoyable Oscar Peterson session, featuring bassist Ray Brown and drummer Ed Thigpen.
