Walter Page
Basie Anchor and Pioneer of the Jazz Bass

1
The four members that made up the original Count Basie band’s “All American Rhythm Section” were unique in their approach to swing, and their sound together heralded a fresh new voice that still resonates today.

Lewis Porter writes of them on WBGO’s website, and focuses in particular on Walter Page: a real pioneer in jazz bass. -Scott Wenzel

Jackie McLean Quintet
Blues Inn 1988

2
Jackie McLean’s appearance at the third annual Mt. Fuji/Blue Note Jazz Festival in 1988 featured a quintet with Wallace Roney, Horace Parlan, Peter Washington and Kenny Washington performing tunes by Jackie associated with his Blue Note output of the late ’50s and early ’60s.

Blues Inn comes from his session for the label which produced half of Jackie’s Bag. -Michael Cuscuna

A Lifetime of Carla Bley
3
Ethan Iverson’s New Yorker profile of Carla Bley is essential reading. Iverson has brilliantly drawn from Carla’s life and thoughts, and her litany of musical achievements, to fill this beautifully wrapped package that cajols you immediately to take another listen to her recordings. Don’t linger. -Nick Moy
