everybodydigs#12 Tina Brooks – True Blue

null

everybodydigs# is a series of posts about Jazz, Funk, Soul & R’n’b albums released from the 20s to the 90s, you can read a brief description/review and listen to a small preview (when it’s possible). everybodydigs# is like when someone tells you “hey you should listen to this album!” and nothing less, enjoy!

With a strong, smooth tone and an amazing flow of fresh ideas every time he soloed, tenor saxophonist Tina Brooks should have been a major jazz artist, but his legacy is confined to a series of dates that he did for Blue Note as a sideman and leader. “True Blue” is the only album under his own name to come out in his lifetime. He and Freddie Hubbard had recorded Hubbard’s “Open Sesame” a week earlier. Based on these two albums alone, Brooks should have been recognized as an important new voice in jazz.

Personnel: Tina Brooks (tenor saxophone); Tina Brooks; Sam Jones (double bass); Freddie Hubbard (trumpet); Duke Jordan (piano); Art Taylor (drums).

Freddie Joachim – Overture

Updated version of “Overture” an unofficial compilation with beats and remixes by Freddie Joachim, enjoy!

Freddie Joachim released so much good tracks for free so i decided to made that, an unofficial compilation with beats and remixes already released by him on freddiejoachim.com. “Overture” (suggested by a dear friend) you might know that means introduction in classical music but it’s also a piece of music setting the mood for the film before the opening credits start, I thought it was perfect because that’s the kinda idea of this compilation: an introduction to Freddie Joahim’s music, enjoy!
