Cover of The Aristocats (Special Edition)
I made a hash of last week's releases on rdio by not making it through the playlist I created. This week, I'll just list the releases and then listen one-by-one or something. I will add some categorization:
- nominally american classical
- A Night at the Movies. Syd Lawrence Orchestra
- nominally classic (jazz)
- Songs. Billie Holiday
- The Modern Jazz Quartet Live. The Modern Jazz Quartet
- Rare Treasures. The Modern Jazz Quartet
- Disney Jazz Volume 1: Everybody Wants to Be a Cat. Various Artists including Roy Hargrove, Esperanza Spalding (doing Chim Chim Cher-ee), The Bad Plus etc.
- Tokyo Jazz. Various Artists. There are also London Jazz and New York Jazz etc.
- Plays the Sound of Philadelphia. Larry Carlton
- The Complete Charlie Parker Quartet Recordings for Verve. Charlie Parker
- Stratosphere: Unreleased Tracks. The Afro Blues Quintet Plus One
- also of interest (to me)
American classical not being well-represented this week, obviously.
