1956-1946


An African-American icon and true diva whose distinctive voice brought an unmatched level of eclecticism across five decades.
Nina Simone
My Baby Just Cares for Me 3:38
Love Me or Leave Me 3:23
Good Bait 5:28
from My Baby Just Cares for Me






American rockabilly legend who defined the greasy-haired, leather-jacketed, hot rods 'n' babes spark of rock & roll. 
Gene Vincent
Red Blue Jeans and a Ponytail (Bill Davis / Jack Rhodes) 2:14
Unchained Melody (Alex North / Hy Zaret) 2:43
Catman (Tex Davis / Gene Vincent)
from Gene Vincent and His Blue Caps 1957
Gene Vincent and His Blue Caps, cut in October 1956, only four months after its predecessor, came about under slightly less favorable circumstances than the Bluejean Bop album. Cliff Gallup, whose lead guitar had been so central to the group's original sound, and rhythm guitarist Willie Williams, who was only somewhat less important to their sound, had been gone from the band for nearly two months when producer Ken Nelson decided it was time to cut material for more singles and a second album.


The Viking of 6th Avenue, the NYC street performer icon was actually a groundbreaking minimalist jazz composer feted by royalty. 
Moondog
Caribea, sextet 1:30
Lullaby, sextet 2:13
Big Cat, sextet 1:50
Frog Bog, quintet 2:09
from Moondog 1956
By the standards of the mid-'50s, or indeed or any era, this was so far-out and uncommercial that it's difficult to believe it was even released. Moondog, by this time well known as a New York street musician, drives these pieces along with maraca and clava percussion, often in odd time signatures. The percussion lines are the backbone for unusual melodies, often Asian- or Japanese-inspired, with a movingly mournful (but not unappealing) quality. Washes of wind-like sounds and animal noises are often used to embellish the pieces...




Leading early bop guitarist who helped define the modern jazz guitar with his great speed, technique, and flow of ideas. / Nearly as famous for his reluctance to play as for his outstanding abilities, guitarist Tal Farlow did not take up the instrument until he was already 21, but within a year was playing professionally and in 1948 was with Marjorie Hyams' band. While with the Red Norvo Trio (which originally included Charles Mingus) from 1949-1953, Farlow became famous in the jazz world.
Tal Farlow
If There's Someone Lovelier Than You (Tal Farlow) 2:45
You and the Night and the Music (Otto Harbach / Walter Hirsch) 3:43
Blues in the Closet (Lorenz Hart / Richard Rodgers) 2:51
from The Tal Farlow Album 1955
For guitarist Tal Farlow's second album as a leader (following a very obscure effort for Blue Note), he is joined by rhythm guitarist Barry Galbraith, bassist Oscar Pettiford and drummer Joe Morello on eight numbers, and pianist Claude Williamson and bassist Red Mitchell for the remaining four. Farlow is heard in his early prime. Thirty-two at the time, he was a brilliant technician who could play extremely fast, yet clean and with a light touch...


Pianist, composer, arranger, and conductor who invented the exotica style, combining easy listening, Latin, and Hawaiian.
Martin Denny
Exotica 3:07
Oro (God of Vengeance) 2:21
Flamingo 2:48
from Best Of Martin Denny's Exotica
Since the mid-'90s resurgence of easy listening or space age bachelor pad music, the majority of both original LPs and compilations by the pioneers of the genre -- Esquivel, Les Baxter, Arthur Lyman, and Martin Denny -- saw a glut of reissues, both good and bad. Unfortunately, the best of those discs aren't as easy to find some ten years later as they once were, making this 2006 compilation a welcome arrival...


Quintessential jazz singer whose reedy voice and laconic style made her a legend for the ages. 
Billie Holiday
Body and Soul (Frank Eyton / Johnny Green / Edward Heyman / Robert Sour) 6:18
Darn That Dream (Eddie DeLange / James Van Heusen) 6:19
Comes Love (Lew Brown / Sam H. Stept / Charles Tobias) 4:02
from Body & Soul 1957
This session comes from close to the end of the line (1959) in the erstwhile swinging company of Barney Kessel on guitar, Ben Webster on tenor, and naysayers will be quick to point out that Lady Day wasn't in peak form here. But Billie Holiday with some of the platinum chipped off the pipes is still way better than a buncha finger-snappin' wannabes anyday.... The Lady sings and swings.

form The Chess Story Vol.6 1955-1956
Chess Records was an American record company, founded in 1950 in Chicago and specializing in blues and rhythm and blues. Over time it expanded into soul music, gospel music, early rock and roll, and occasional jazz and comedy recordings, released on the Chess, Checker, Argo, and Cadet labels. The Chess catalogue is currently owned by Universal Music Group and managed by Geffen Records.
Founded and run by Jewish immigrant brothers from Poland, Leonard and Phil Chess, the company produced and released many singles and albums regarded as central to the rock music canon. The musician and critic Cub Koda described Chess as "America's greatest blues label."


One of the towering figures of the 20th century, the first teen idol and the definitive saloon singer, the latter exemplified on a series of '50s concept albums.  
Frank Sinatra
In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning  (Bob Hilliard / David Mann) 3:00
Deep in a Dream (Eddie DeLange / James Van Heusen) 2:49
What Is This Thing Called Love? (Cole Porter) 2:31
from In the Wee Small Hours 1955
Expanding on the concept of Songs for Young Lovers!, In the Wee Small Hours was a collection of ballads arranged by Nelson Riddle. The first 12" album recorded by Sinatra, Wee Small Hours was more focused and concentrated than his two earlier concept records. It's a blue, melancholy album, built around a spare rhythm section featuring a rhythm guitar, celesta, and Bill Miller's piano, with gently aching strings added every once and a while. Within that melancholy mood is one of Sinatra's most jazz-oriented performances -- he restructures the melody and Miller's playing is bold throughout the record...

Little Walter - Blues With a Feeling 3:07
Jimmy Rogers _ Chicago Bound 2:42
Howlin' Wolf - Evil 2:55

Django Reinhardt was the first hugely influential jazz figure to emerge from Europe -- and he remains the most influential European to this day, with possible competition from Joe Zawinul, George Shearing, John McLaughlin, his old cohort Stephane Grappelli and a bare handful of others. A free-spirited gypsy, Reinhardt wasn't the most reliable person in the world, frequently wandering off into the countryside on a whim. 
Django Reinhardt
Impromptu 2:47
Keep Cool 3:06
Blues for Ike 3:23
Brazil 2:28
from Complete Jazz Series 1951 - 1953
The 17th and final installment in the Classics Django Reinhardt chronology contains the Gypsy guitarist's very last recordings. Its 22 tracks consist of Decca and Blue Star records cut in Paris between May 11, 1951, and April 8, 1953. By this time, Reinhardt had switched entirely to the electrically amplified guitar and was actively collaborating with progressive young players like alto saxophonist Hubert Fol, bassist Pierre Michelot, and pianists Raymond Fol and Martial Solal. This beautifully cool and bop-inspired music differs markedly from the Gypsy swing formula established during the 1930s by Reinhardt, Stéphane Grappelli, and the Quintet of the Hot Club of France. During the last years of his life, Reinhardt was not merely adapting to modernity -- he was actively defining it...

Les Baxter is a pianist who composed and arranged for the top swing bands of the '40s and '50s, but he is better known as the founder of exotica, a variation of easy listening that glorified the sounds and styles of Polynesia, Africa, and South America, even as it retained the traditional string-and-horn arrangements of instrumental pop. Exotica became a massively popular trend in the '50s, with thousands of record buyers listening to Baxter, Martin Denny, and their imitators.

Les Paul had such a staggeringly huge influence over the way American popular music sounds today that many tend to overlook his significant impact upon the jazz world. Before his attention was diverted toward recording multi-layered hits for the pop market, he made his name as a brilliant jazz guitarist whose exposure on coast-to-coast radio programs guaranteed a wide audience of susceptible young musicians. Heavily influenced by Django Reinhardt at first, Paul eventually developed an astonishingly fluid, hard-swinging style of his own, one that featured extremely rapid runs, fluttered and repeated single notes, and chunking rhythm support, mixing in country & western licks and humorous crowd-pleasing effects. No doubt his brassy style gave critics a bad time, but the gregarious, garrulous Paul didn't much care; he was bent on showing his audiences a good time.

One of a handful of musicians who can be said to have permanently changed jazz, Charlie Parker was arguably the greatest saxophonist of all time. He could play remarkably fast lines that, if slowed down to half speed, would reveal that every note made sense. "Bird," along with his contemporaries Dizzy Gillespie and Bud Powell, is considered a founder of bebop; in reality he was an intuitive player who simply was expressing himself. Rather than basing his improvisations closely on the melody as was done in swing, he was a master of chordal improvising, creating new melodies that were based on the structure of a song.
