New Jazz Album Free For Download

April 2, 2007

This British Group was formed in 1980 as a jazz-funk fusion band. For 2 decades, they have been successful with so many hits that top the chart. Mark King’s slap bass techniques that usually became the rhythm and groove basis for the songs, and the falsetto from Mark Lindup, are always the main attraction for them, the trademark of Level 42. I don’t have to talk about how good their songs are, i just have to talk about the tracklist of their best albums. I’ve noticed their best albums were never complete. There’s always 1 or 2 hits is missing. So, me and my friend blackmamba decided to make our own compilation, where we put ALL of their hits, including Guaranteed and Three Words (this one, as far as i remember, is never placed in any best album, and quite rare..). So, I hope you enjoy our presentation and have fun with the originality and greatness of Level 42.

Tracklist :
Lessons In Love
Something About You
Running In The Family
To Be With You Again
Love Games
Three Words
The Sun Goes Down (Living It Up)
Leaving Me Now
The Chinese Way
Heaven In My Hands
It’s Over
The Chant Has Begun
Hot Water
Forever Now
Love In A Peaceful World
The Chinese Way (NY Remix)

Swing Out Sister – The Best

Swing Out sister is a British duo that became a superstar in mid 80s. They started the group in form of 3 person, then later on, they became just duo. Corrine Drewery, the vocalist, has a really unique voice, wide range, soft and sexy. They reached the stardom with their superhits, Breakout. People place them under different sub genres, like pop jazz, smooth jazz, cool jazz to acid jazz. Makes sense, cuz they have all the ingredients to fit into those kind of sub genres. All of their songs are the result of fine blend between synthesizer, trumpet/brass section, with really cool vocal. Swing Out Sister have all the correct ingrediants like attractive female lead, infectious melodies, danceable, uplifting and addictive. Really, it’s fun and light but always musically interesting at the same time. Very very recommended. 🙂

1. Swing Out Sister – Breakout (3:46)

Antonio Carlos Jobim – A Certain Mr Jobim

Blackmamba says:
Seperti biasa, di album ini Jobim mempersembahkan bossa yang sempurna dan very2 relaxing bgt. Disini kita bisa mendengarkan vokal asli Jobim pada beberapa lagu. Album ini dirilis pertama kali tahun 1967. Beberapa lagu tampil dgn orchestra, dan mengingatkan kita pada gaya Frank Sinatra. Ga heran, karna tepat sebelum album ini, Jobim ngerilis album kolaborasinya dgn Sinatra. Tidak hanya gaya frank, tapi album ini juga sangat terpengaruh dgn gaya musik di era 60 an. Seperti halnya album2 Jobim lainnya, dan album2 bossa pada umumnya, album ini jg tetap asik buat dinikmati sambil nyantai dan buat yg butuh suasana romantis. O ya, satu lagu dari album ini, Surfboard, tampil dalam album Timeless nya Sergio Mendes yg dirilis tahun lalu, ft Will I Am. Satu lagi, silakan dengar lagu Desafinado dalam bhs inggris, yang beda dgn versi inggris yang biasa kita tau. Sebuah album romantis, lembut, adem dan manis yang sayang banget untuk dilewatkan.

Tracklist :
1. Antonio Jobim – Once again (Outra vez) (2:10)
2. Antonio Jobim – I was just one more for you (E (2:27)
3. Antonio Jobim – Estrada do Sol (3:32)
4. Antonio Jobim – Don’t ever go away (Por causa (2:48)
5. Antonio Carlos Jobim – Zingara (2:24)
6. Antonio Jobim – Bonita (2:58)
7. Antonio Jobim – Se todos fossem iguais a vocĂŞ (2:19)
8. Antonio Jobim – Off key (Desafinado) (3:08)
9. Antonio Jobim – Photograph (Fotografia) (2:12)
10. Antonio Jobim – Surfboard (2:46)

Fourplay – Journey

Fourplay pada awalnya beranggotakan Lee Ritenour, Bob James,Nathan East dan Harvey Mason. Tahun 1998 Lee Ritenour keluar dan digantikan oleh Larry Carlton. Ini album keluaran tahun 2004, album yang menurut gw sangat direkomendasikan buat penggemar jazz sebenarnya. Fourplay memiliki style unik, hasil kolaborasi 4 punggawa jazz yang, walaupun masing2 punya taste tersendiri, tapi sinergi dan kolaborasi mereka yang kompak abis telah terbukti selama bertahun2. You wanna feel the taste of old skool jazz, in every good way? a record that has uniqueness, originality and mixture of flavor? A mature jazz fans that need a high quality and creative arrangement of songs? this is the one for you. Excellent mix of vocals and instrumentals too.. again, it’s recommended from me.

Tracklist :
1. Fields Of Gold
2. Play Around It
3. From Day One
4. Journey
5. Rozil
6. Cool Train
7. Avalabop
8. The Firehouse Chill
9. Departure
10. 147 4th St


Song List :

3.Feeling High
4.Let’s Do It Together

Java Jazz Fest 2007 menampilkan salah satu maestro jazz indonesia, Bubi Chen. Seperti tahun2 sebelumnya, oom Bubi tampil memukau didepan para penggemarnya. Kontribusi, semangat dan kepeduliannya terhadap jazz di Indonesia membuat gw salut sekaligus terharu. Oom Bubi kali ini tampil dengan kursi roda.. ya, dalam kondisi spt itu beliau tetap tampil dgn sempurna. Semoga beliau lekas sembuh..

Kali ini gw rilis salah satu albumnya, keluaran tahun 1998 yang diberi judul Wonderful World, dimana beliau tampil dengan para sahabat dekatnya spt Benny Likumahuwa, Oele Pattiselano, dll.Ini album yg menurut gw sangat kental jazznya, melodious, dan ga kalah ama artis2 luar. Suara Syaharani yg ngejazz bgt ngeblend dgn sempurna dgn para sepuh jazz. Album ini gw rip langsung dari CD, so ga perlu ragu ama kualitasnya. A truly masterpiece album, a classic, one of the greatest treasure of Indonesian Jazz history, This one will surely blow you away. You’ll love this album and have this one among your best collection for long time to come.
