Recorded the same week as Getz/Gilberto '76, Resonance Records' companion album, 2016's Moments in Time, captures saxophonist Stan Getz performing live at San Francisco's Keystone Korner in May 1976. To celebrate the release of Getz's reunion album with Brazilian singer/guitarist João Gilberto, 1976's The Best of Two Worlds, the saxophonist booked a week of shows at the Keystone backed by his quartet and featuring Gilberto. Whereas Getz/Gilberto '76 showcases the Gilberto performances, Moments in Time finds Getz appearing alone with his band, featuring pianist Joanne Brackeen, drummer Billy Hart, and bassist Clint Houston. Despite the wealth and fame he accumulated from his initial 1960s bossa nova albums, Getz remained a creatively restless, forward-thinking artist over the coming years. His band here, arguably one of his best of the period, also bore this forward-looking vision out with performances that straddled the line between lyrical intimacy and aggressive, extroverted improvisation. One can also see where Getz's taste was at the time based on his song choices, pulling together standards like "Summer Night" with more harmonically layered pieces like Wayne Shorter's languid and sultry "Infant Eyes" and the funky Kenny Wheeler composition "The Cry of the Wild Goose." As with Getz/Gilberto '76, Moments in Time is a thoughtfully curated package featuring not only some of Getz's best live performances of the period, but also liner notes from producer Zev Feldman, Keystone Korner club owner Todd Barkan, and others, as well as interviews with bandmembers Hart and Brackeen.

The beauty of this album upon repeated listening, is that Keith Whiting, the producer did not establish guidelines of musical philosophy these musicians had to follow. He was completely aware from the beginning of their abilities, allowing them to play in a manner which complies with their musical convictions. In essence he appreciates the art form and is aware of Pat's ability to play with freshness, profundity and skill. This type of freedom, in the history of jazz recording has occurred on small independent jazz labels…a breath of fresh air for the jazz listening public. These labels believe in the musical integrity of the artist, but do not have the financial resources to offer the artist's efforts to the world in an appropriate fashion. This problem is a constant ongoing dilemma to the jazz musician…either to stay on the level of small acceptance and financial support of cross over into the already highly saturated world of commercialism. This means sacrificing his musical identity and integrity, a situation which has not been easy to deal with. They have goals to progress to the need to jump off the already worn paths, taking themselves and other to new musical plateaus of awareness"

The butt-squeezing cover should be enough to let you know that this is one funky album -- but if that doesn't get the message across, the grooves certainly do! O'Donel Levy plays tight and funky guitar, and also sings a bit on the set -- working with a tight combo that features Charles Covington on keyboards, and some great electric funk arrangements by Dave Matthews! The album's got a more full-on funk approach than some of Levy's more laidback efforts from the time -- and the instrumentation's all very hard-grooving, with lots of sweet electric touches! ©

AllMusic Review by William Ruhlmann
The only surprising thing about an album of Italian songs by Dean Martin, the most overtly Italian of Italian-American pop singers, was that it wasn't recorded until near the end of Martin's recording contract with Capitol. Maybe it was the success of similar albums by Connie Francis that convinced the label or the artist that such a collection could have commercial appeal, but given that some of Martin's biggest hits, including "That's Amore" and "Volare," had been Italian-flavored, it's hard to see why they would have needed urging. In any case, Martin was typically convincing on this album in both English and Italian, whether re-cutting his hit "Return to Me" or trying an alternate English lyric for "O Sole Mio" ("There's No Tomorrow"). Listeners should be forewarned that this is not a collection of Martin's Italian hits, but rather a newly recorded album (circa 1961). Nevertheless, it is a good match of singer to songs, and it became Martin's first charting album on Capitol.

A great one from Sonny Fortune done with the fusiony sound he was working so well with at the time, and still filled with a tight conception and an incredible group of musicians who bring depth and deliver some really great solos! The title track is an incredible 10 minute cut that breaks into a beautiful modal groove about 4 minutes into it and that groove is completely wonderful. It's far from the only high point of a set filled with them. Players include Kenny Barron on Fender Rhodes, Woody Shaw on coronet & flugelhorn, Gary King on bass, Jack DeJohnette on drums, Sammy Figueroa on congas, Rafael Cruz on percussion, and Sonny doing his thing on flute, piccolo and sax. Other tracks include "Bacchanal", "Never Again Is Such A Long Time", "There's Nothing Smart About Being Stupid" and "The Afro-Americans". (Cover has a cutout hole, a promo sticker, light wear, and a bit of stuck-on paper on back.) © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove

The name Lennie Tristano was conspicuously absent from Ken Burns' monolithic jazz documentary. That's no small omission; Tristano's group, which included the saxophonists Warne Marsh and Lee Konitz (also ignored by Burns) was the first to record what later came to be known as free jazz -- music improvised without pre-ordained melodies, harmonies, or meter. Needless to say, that wasn't mentioned by Burns, either. Tristano did it in 1949, the year this record was recorded, with what is essentially the same band (Konitz is absent here, though he was a regular member of Tristano's group at the time). This record gives no direct evidence of the band's free jazz experiments -- although Tristano is given composer's credit on all cuts, the disc is comprised mostly of standard harmonic frameworks played without reference to theme. However, it does reflect the band's prevailing emphasis on unfettered linear improvisation. The quintet tracks here were recorded by the group's bassist, Arnold Fishkin, during performances at the old Birdland in New York. The solo piano cuts were recorded in Chicago, four years earlier. The sound's rough, but not unlistenable, especially given the historical implication of the music. Listening to this is like being a fly on the wall of the world's most famous jazz club, witnessing history in the making. It really can't be said that Tristano's piano style was cut from whole cloth -- there's too much of a Bud Powell influence -- but there have been few musicians on any instrument who played with more spontaneous melodic invention. Two others who did were Marsh and guitarist Billy Bauer, also present here; this band placed great importance of creating "in the moment," and listening to this music made over 50 years ago reminds listeners of the value in such an approach. Little jazz being made at the turn of the millennium rivals this set in terms of raw creativity. Popular misconceptions aside, this is an important document. ~ Chris Kelsey

A sexy, late 50s nightclub singer with a bit of a jazzy bent. A warm intimate style of singing that makes the material stand out more than the usual vocal session from the time. Morrissey was popular in upscale dinner clubs all over the US and UK.

Pat waited a long time before she first came to public attention. She was all of five years old when she first debuted on a children's radio hour in Philadelphia. Soon after, Sophie Tucker hired her to speak one line in a Broadway show. That line was "Bless my mommy and my daddy". But her real break as an adult professional performer came not long ago when she vacationed with friends in Florida.

Dining at famed Mother Kelly's restaurant, her friends dared her to sing. Pat called the bluff but she was nervous. As though it offered some protection, Pat snuggled into the curve of the baby grand. The reaction to her singing -and her appealing gesture- was tremendous. So, right she was hired by Mother Kelly's and stayed ten weeks. Then La Vie en Rose in New York, the Crescendo in Hollywood, El Rancho in Las Vegas, the Black Orchid in Chicago, the Stork Room in London and so many others...
