I Like To Riff
Release Date: 9/21/2018
Format: CD
List Price: (A20) $20.98 

Charles Daly Barnet was an American jazz saxophonist, composer, and bandleader. His major recordings were Skyliner, Cherokee, The Wrong Idea, Scotch and Soda, In a Mizz and Southland Shuffle. Known for a unique sound and hard-swinging style on tenor saxophone, Barnet in the late 1930s added the alto saxophone to his arsenal, followed by the soprano saxophone, an instrument that had fallen out of favor after the 1920s and was not generally used in the big band era. Charlie Barnet was married eleven times and in his 1984 autobiography says, “I went through several more marital fiascos, but they were mostly Mexican marriages and quickly annulled, because they weren’t legal in the first place. His final marriage to Betty Thompson was for 33 years. He had one son, Charles D. Barnet, Jr, from an earlier marriage. During retirement, Barnet resided at homes in Palm Springs and San Diego, California. He kept a 46-foot boat in San Diego. The recordings on this CD are from AFRS One Night Stands chronologically some time apart. The first notably features Dodo Marmarosa and Barney Kessel with Kay Starr providing the vocals. The second features arrangements by Stan Kenton’s luminarie Bill Holman and Lyn Franklin is the featured vocalist.

The Armory Concert
Release Date: 9/21/2018
Format: CD
List Price: (A14) $14.98 

(20% DISCOUNT THRU 9-28-18) In 1955 the great Duke Ellington and his Orchestra performed for the 10,000 seat D.C. Armory, in his hometown of Washington, D.C. As Ellington fans will of course remember, Ellington had an incredible rebirth at the Newport Jazz Festival the next year, after reacquiring alto saxophone star Johnny Hodges and his writing partner, the great Billy Strayhorn. New drummer Sam Woodyard would also prove to be an invaluable part of the new Ellington sound, but as this concert is from 1955, none of these changes had as yet taken place, which is why this performance is so very significant to the Ellington aficionado. In this performance we have the great alto saxophonist Rick Henderson, who was a very capable arranger as well as bebop altoist. Here we get to hear a rare glimpse of his playing and writing on "All The Things You Are". He was not featured as the band's lead alto, as Russell Procope had taken over after brief stints in which Willie Smith and then Hilton Jefferson played lead in the band. We also hear from the great drummer Dave Black, for whom Strayhorn composed and arranged "Gonna Tan Your Hide", and here he is most interestingly heard in his interpretation of "Tone Parallel to Harlem". Perdido is used as a swinging vehicle for Clark Terry's prodigious and sassy story telling, along with some sidebar commentary by other brass members Nance, Anderson, and Woodman. "Just Squeeze Me" features Ray Nance's soulfully swaggerful singing as always. Pay attention to the "pep section" (brass with plungers) as they squeeze so much juice out of this song it should be a crime! Cat Anderson does his usual Spanish tinged feature on "La Virgen", full of suspenseful dramatics and prowlery of "el gato" himself. Duke announces a fully descriptive introduction of the 1946 composition "Happy Go-Lucky Local" complete with his subliminal shot at ex-Ellingtonian tenor saxophonist Jimmy Forrest, who essentially "borrowed" the main theme of the tune for his huge hit record "Night Train". More great Ray Nance vocals on "A Train", the very song he recorded his very famous trumpet solo on, but this is the early 50's version of course, complete with an incredible performance by tenor sax giant Paul Gonsalves. The tune called "John Sanders' Blues" appears to actually be a slight reworking of "Happy Go-Lucky Local" part 1, again from the 1946 composition, Deep South Suite.

Reflections In The Sea Of Nurnen
Release Date: 9/21/2018
Format: LP
List Price: (B44) $44.98 

An incredible session from the legendary Tribe Records scene -- an equal effort from leader Doug Hammond and keyboardist David Durrah, who contributes some ground breaking Fender Rhodes and moog work to the set! Hammond handles drums plus a bit of vocals and synthesizer on the session - working alongside Durrah in a groove that mixes electric and acoustic instrumentation into a totally righteous sound with lots of heavy Afro Jazz leanings. A number of tracks feature great vocals from Hammond - righteous, and with a beautifully soulful message-oriented approach - and a few other tracks, such as the classic "Space I" and "Space II", feature a sparer all-electric sound. The whole thing's wonderful -- skittishly rhythmic, warmly flowing, and righteously beautiful. Titles include "Sea Of Nurnen", "Fidalgo Detour", "Reflections", "Space II", and "For Real".

(5% DISCOUNT THRU 9-28-18) Parallel Worlds & Dave Bessell are familiar to followers of the DiN label. Each has solo albums and multiple collaborations across the DiN catalog. The album title makes clear we are entering a dark, foreboding sound world. Bessell quotes the novel "Neuromancer" by William Gibson as a major influence. "Dystopia" is dynamic with complex, almost classical, arrangements that are constantly shifting. Bakis Sirros (aka Parallel Worlds) weaves modular rhythms that squirm and writhe underneath vast slabs of analog chords, rising and falling like cities. Tracks feature Bessell's adventurous guitar work as well as his analog, modeled sound design. Seeming to inhabit a nether world between dark electronica and progressive synth, these two musicians have once again created an album that sounds like nothing else.

Song And Dance
Release Date: 9/21/2018
Format: CD
List Price: (A15) $15.98 

Renowned trumpeter, composer, educator, and author, Mike Steinel, partners with vocalist Rosana Eckert to showcase a wide-ranging collection of original music and songs. Though a composer of dozens of essential big band charts over the last 4 decades, Steinel opted for a quintet setting to frame his recent inspiration to write lyrics. From Irving Berlin-inspired ballads to soaring, through-composed romps, featuring intricate trumpet with wordless vocal melodies, Steinel's desire to blur stylistic boundaries and celebrate broader interests shines through. Reconfirming that music gains power when reduced to its essential elements during recent time spent with young musicians in South Africa and Haiti, Steinel's bandmates, and fellow University of North Texas professors - Eckert, Pat Coil, Steve Barnes and Carl Hillman - create a joyous musical collection, with lyrics ranging from the humorous to the poignant and back again.

Rockin In The Usa - Hot 100 Hits Of The 80s
Release Date: 9/7/2018
Format: CD
List Price: (B20) $20.98 

(5% DISCOUNT THRU 8-24-18) Having successfully anthologised the American charts of the 50s, 60s and 70s over a long period of time, Ace is delighted this month to premiere "Rockin' In The USA", its first anthology of 1980s US Hot 100 hits. 80s radio made hits for a lot of new names. As had been the case in earlier eras, many of them are still around 30 to almost 40 years later, while the careers of others virtually began and ended with their lone hit. Our earlier series have always embraced both the renowned and the obscure, and this is no different. Here are almost two dozen of the finest US hits of that decade, all presented as they were originally heard coming over FM Pop radio right across America. Many were also UK hits, and all of them should have been. Some of the best pop and rock of the 80s you will ever hear on the same CD is present on "Rockin' In The USA". We are sure it will prove to be as popular as its sister series "The Golden Age Of American Rock'n'Roll", "Chartbusters USA" and "The Hit List".
