Eartha Kitt co-starred with Nat King Cole in the film St. Louis Blues, a screen biography of W.C. Handy, which opened in April 1958, and her label, RCA Victor Records, took the occasion to have her record an album of Handy blues songs and spirituals. This was a departure from her usual practice of performing exotic and sophisticated material in various languages, but she handled the assignment well. On most of the tracks, she was paired with a Dixieland jazz band, Shorty Rogers & His Giants, which consisted of Rogers and John Best on trumpets; Moe Schneider on trombone; Matty Matlock on clarinet; Stan Wrightsman on piano; Al Hendrickson on guitar; Morty Corb on bass; Nick Fatool on drums; and Milt Holland on conga, with a male vocal quartet chiming in on some songs. There were also two spirituals, "Steal Away" and "Hist the Window, Noah," on which Kitt was accompanied by the Jester Hairston Choir. Blues and spirituals were not her forte, really, but she did her best, clearly relishing her one chance to throw in a little French (or Creole, anyway, as the lyrics say) with the Cajun-tinged "Chantez les Bas (Sing 'Em Low)." Of course, Handy's version of the blues has a lot of Tin Pan Alley in it, which helped give Kitt something to work with. Rogers and the band were thoroughly familiar with the tunes and provided excellent backing. They didn't make Kitt a jazz singer, either, but she was a professional, and the result was a pleasing interpretation of Handy's music.

Rec.: RCA Victor's Studio A, New York City, NY, November 30 (#1, 7), December 2 (#2, 3, 5, 8) and 5 (#4, 6, 9), 1966.
 
All but one selection ("Blue") from thisbig-band album has been reissued on CD. J.J. Johnson, the main soloist throughout on trombone, also contributed all the compositions and arrangements for the 13- and 14-piece bands heard on the three sessions. There are short spots for some of the other players, particularly pianist Hank Jones, but the emphasis is on the arranged ensembles, making this project an excellent example of Johnson's often-overlooked writing talents.

Records by Hen Gates and His Gators were compiled by taking old R&B masters and repressing them for the emerging rock 'n' roll market.
Close inspection of the tracks reveals they were taken from 1940's Freddie Mitchell masters from the Derby label and given new titles.

The album jacket, with a photo of cruising white teenagers, describes this band but, there was never any Hen Gates and never any Gators.

The Masterseal LP's have been re-released on CD with the original album photo, but now the text has the words "with Freddie Mitchell" on the cover.
Mitchell's name does not appear on the original 1957 vinyl issue.

There actually was a jazz pianist nicknamed Hen Gates who was a bebop musician of the early to mid-40's, but there is no relation to this artist.

Plymouth Records is a lower end company and it's reported that Hen Gates is Freddy Mitchell, the jazz sax player.

AllMusic Review by William Ruhlmann
Veteran British soul man Chris Farlowe, who turned 68 shortly before the release of this album, his first new studio recording in five years, is more than four decades removed from his brief period as a U.K. pop star in the mid-'60s, and he has long since reverted to the bluesy style he had used before then, back in the days of Chris Farlowe & the Thunderbirds, before "Out of Time" gave him his only chart-topper. On Hotel Eingang, he leads an effective guitar/organ/bass/drums quartet, with some occasional horns, background vocals, and a harmonica joining in. The songs either sound like old electric blues and R&B numbers or really are. "It Should've Been Me," which was a Top Five R&B hit for Ray Charles in 1954 but could've been one for the Coasters, gets a workout, for instance. On the other hand, "I've Got Your Love" comes from the pen of Boz Scaggs, who is closer to Farlowe's age, and dates from only 1997, while "Fog on the Highway" is an original by the band's guitarist, Miller Anderson, and is a statement of purpose for this journeyman performer and his accompanists. Farlowe is sometimes described as sounding like the American R&B singers who were his models, but with his foggy, phlegmy, occasionally gritty voice, he is more suggestive of other, better known British singers of his generation, say a cross between Gary Brooker from Procol Harum and Joe Cocker. Hotel Eingang is not an album that is going to re-establish him as a star, but it may assure listeners (especially in Europe, where he plays primarily) that a night out seeing him in a club is likely to be an enjoyable experience. (The title track is actually a comic reminiscence by Farlowe of his first trip to Hamburg in 1961, and to get the punch line it is necessary to know that "Hotel Eingang" means "hotel entrance" in German. In the story, the young Farlowe supposes it to be the name of his hotel when he gets lost.)

5. Samba De Orfeu 4:06
6. Qual E O Po 3:30
7. Manha De Carnaval 4:33
8. Theme (From Mutiny On The Bounty) 2:03
 
Label - Mood Indigo
 
Bob Brookmeyer was in the studio just a few months after Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd helped to launch the bossa nova craze in the United States with their hit LP Jazz Samba, but this extremely enjoyable LP didn't come close to matching the success of the earlier album; it may be because the valve trombone is not envisioned as a lush melodic instrument by the average jazz listener in comparison to the tenor sax.
Brookmeyer's mellow solos are complemented by the presence of guitarists Jim Hall (who plays all of the solos) and Jimmy Raney, along with vibraphonist Gary McFarland and a trio of Latin percussionists, including Willie Bobo.
Luiz Bonfá's "Samba de Orfeu" and "Manha de Carnaval" as well as Antonio Carlos Jobim's "A Felicidade" (all three of which have become standards within the genre) are given imaginative arrangements, but there are a few twists thrown in by the leader. Brookmeyer's catchy "Blues Bossa Nova" works very well, as do his loping bossa nova treatment of Bronislaw Kaper's theme from Mutiny on the Bounty and a hilarious brisk chart called "Colonel Bogey Bossa Nova," a reworking of the well-known song made famous by the film The Bridge on the River Kwai. ©

AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow
The legendary Terry Gibbs Dream Band, a notable unit that from 1959-62 made a few albums for Mercury and Verve, was well served by the five CDs of previously unreleased material released by Contemporary in the late 1980s. Vol. 2 has charts by Bill Holman, Al Cohn, Manny Albam, Lennie Niehaus and Med Flory on six swing-era songs and four later tunes, including Gibbs' "The Fat Man." Of the soloists featured during this live set, which also resulted in part of Vol. 3, vibraphonist Gibbs, trumpeter Conte Candoli, altoists Joe Maini and Charlie Kennedy, Bill Perkins on tenor and pianist Lou Levy are most notable. Recommended for fans of swinging big bands.

Chicago jazz singer Paula Greer had a 40-year career in the nightclubs and jazz bars of the Windy City, but her brief stint with Motown’s short-lived Workshop Jazz label in 1963 seems to have been the only time she set foot in a studio. Motown president Berry Gordy had an ardent wish to run a successful jazz label, making Paula his flagship artist (the only Workshop Jazz act to be given more than one Motown single, as well as a full-length LP, I Did), but both sales and attention proved hard to come by and Paula returned to Chicago when Motown abandoned their jazz experiment, enjoying many successful years as a live performer. She passed away in 2007.

AllMusic Review by Stephen Cook
This fine album was one of many solid Capitol releases Nancy Wilson cut during the first half of the '60s. Having already visited Tinseltown's back catalog on Hollywood My Way, Wilson now turns to the wealth of Broadway songs for this 1964 offering. Along with material from familiar shows like Bye Bye Birdie ("A Lot of Livin' to Do"), The King and I ("Getting to Know You"), and West Side Story ("Tonight"), Wilson also dives into stock from such relatively obscure stage excursions as Lady in the Dark ("My Ship") and No Strings ("Loads of Love"). All the performances are top-notch and feature the stellar charts of Jimmy Jones and a memorable cast that includes pianist Lou Levy, guitarist Bill Perkins, and trumpeter Don Fagerquist, among others.

AllMusic Review by Jason Birchmeier
Live at the Cheetah, Vol. 1 (1971) and Vol. 2 (1973) elevated the popularity of the Fania All-Stars significantly, as did the film Our Latin Thing (Nuestra Cosa) (1972), which included live footage from the Cheetah gig. So in 1973 label head Jerry Masucci brazenly went ahead and booked Yankee Stadium at the cost of $180,000 for a one-night concert. It was a gamble that paid off in spades when the concert, featuring Típica '73, El Gran Combo, and Mongo Santamaría, in addition to the Fania All-Stars, drew a crowd of roughly 45,000. Problem was, the crowd rushed the field mid-show -- a condition that was not allowed under contract, for the fans had to stay in the stands and the performers had to stay on a platform stage because of the delicate nature of the baseball field -- and unfortunately that was the end of the show, as the police intervened and the lights were turned on. Hoping to compound the success of Live at the Cheetah, Masucci had recorded the August 24, 1973, Yankee Stadium show for future release. Portions of it showed up in the film Salsa (1976) and on the two-volume album Live at Yankee Stadium (1976), which was filled out with concurrent material from a concert at Roberto Clemente Coliseum in San Juan, Puerto Rico. However, Latin-Soul-Rock, issued in 1974, was the first release to feature material from that historical night at Yankee Stadium: "El Ratón," sung by Cheo Feliciano and featuring a standout guitar solo by Jorge "Malo" Santana, and "Congo Bongo," featuring a congo duel between Ray Barretto and Santamaría. These two songs comprise the album's original B-side, along with a live recording of "Soul Makossa" from the date at Roberto Clemente Coliseum featuring saxophonist Manu Dibango (only readers of the liner notes will note the difference of time and place, since the material sounds remarkably similar). The original A-side of Latin-Soul-Rock is comprised of five excellent studio cuts that had been intended to be performed at Yankee Stadium, if not for the premature conclusion of the show: "Viva Tirado," "Chanchullo," "Smoke," "There You Go," and "Mama Güela." These songs, which feature Dibango and Santana as guests, along with Billy Cobham and Jan Hammer, are more fitting of the album title, Latin-Soul-Rock, as they're an impressive showcase of the band's ability to fuse rock, soul, and jazz with the style of New York salsa that was the stock-in-trade of Fania.

This is an exact repress of a privately released LP by Takayanagi, released in an edition of 100 in 1969.
The material has been reissued once before by Jinya, under the title "The Smile I Love", omitting one track and rearranging the track order. This version adds the missing track and restores the original track order.
