Fats Waller - The Complete Recorded Works ~ Volume 2 (2006)


Jazz | M4A VBR kbps | 4 CD | 596 Mb

The British JSP reissue label specializes in nicely affordable four-CD sets that are chronological tributes to legendary jazz musicians like Jelly Roll Morton, Sidney Bechet, Bix Beiderbecke and Jimmie Noone. While each of these editions has proven useful, fulfilling and entertaining, Volume Two in JSP's Complete Recorded Works of Fats Waller must be regarded as a major triumph in historical jazz research and resurgence. For generations Fats Waller's music has appeared, disappeared and resurfaced in jumbled samplers and "Best Of" collections, with occasional attempts at comprehensive chronological revisitation serving to support and satiate those for whom there can never be enough Fats Waller. The RCA Vintage, Black & White and Bluebird editions of the 1960s, '70s, '80s and '90s each did a good job of keeping most of Waller's music available for both longtime devotees and curious newcomers, and the French have done a marvelous job with their extensive Classics chronological Waller series. Yet throughout all of this reissuing activity, the emphasis was most often upon the vast quantity of Fats Waller's Rhythm recordings made between 1934 and 1942. Waller, whose first records were waxed in 1922, was a perfect cyclone of activity during the '20s and early '30s; seldom if ever has any one label traced the path of this label-hopping soloist, accompanist, sideman and leader throughout his first decade of recording activity as has JSP with their conclusively complete Fats Waller edition.
Most important is the inclusion of every doggone session that Waller participated in between March 1, 1929 and November 7, 1934, regardless of who was billed as the leader or primary performer. This means that in addition to Waller's superb piano and pipe organ solos, his piano duets with Benny Payne, his accompaniments for vocalists Gene Austin and Monette Moore, and the amazing Fats Waller & His Buddies sessions, Waller is heard plunking the piano behind Eddie Green and the cast of the popular revue Hot Chocolates, as an active member of Jimmy Johnson & His Orchestra, and sitting in with Benny Carter, Don Redman and the Chocolate Dandies; the Mound City Blues Blowers, McKinney's Cotton Pickers, the Ted Lewis Orchestra, Billy Banks & His Rhythmakers and the Jack Teagarden Orchestra. The Teagarden sides, which have most often appeared on obscure Teagarden reissues, are fascinating examples of what Waller was up to during his lean years of only occasional recording activity between 1929 and 1934. JSP has done a terrific job of restoring these old and in some cases quite rare recordings; here at last, for example, is a clean copy of the Teagarden/Waller rendering of that immortal opus, "I Got the Ritz from the One I Love." As for Fats Waller and His Rhythm, this compilation contains the first 20 titles ever recorded by that excellent little band. Because of their freshness and spontaneity, these are among the best of all the "Rhythm" sides. The alternate takes from this part of the Waller discography were deposited on the fourth disc "to avoid excessive repetition." Highest praise goes to Ted Kendall for having done such an impeccable job of compiling and remastering these essential musical episodes from the life of Thomas Fats Waller.

Fats Waller - The Complete Recorded Works ~ Volume 3 (2007)


Jazz | M4A VBR kbps | 4 CD | 649 Mb

The third volume in JSP's massive library of Fats Waller's Complete Recorded Works brings together all of the commercial studio recordings he made between November 16, 1934, and August 1, 1936. The first four tracks ("African Ripples," "Clothes Line Ballet," "Alligator Crawl," and "Viper's Drag") serve as an excellent prologue, for these are some of the choicest piano solos of Waller's entire career. The other 99 selections document the explosive success of Fats Waller & His Rhythm, a powerful little sextet that found itself doubled into a 12-piece big band on "Fat and Greasy," "Functionizin'," and the riotously rowdy "I Got Rhythm." Expertly remastered and chronologically presented, Waller's works at last receive the special handling they so richly deserve. Alternate takes are stashed at the end of disc four, except for half a dozen instrumentals that served well as flip sides of the original 78-rpm platters and work even better as wordless continuations of the vocal takes: "I'm a Hundred Per Cent for You," "Baby Brown," "I Ain't Got Nobody," "Whose Honey Are You?," "Rosetta," and "What's the Reason (I'm Not Pleasin' You?)." The fourth disc also contains everything recorded at the brilliantly creative session that took place on June 8, 1936: "Black Raspberry Jam," "Bach Up to Me" (a bowed bass feature for Charles Turner), "Fractious Fingering," "Paswonky," "Lounging at the Waldorf," and "Latch On." While the previous volumes in this series are vitally important and endlessly fascinating, Vol. 3 is by far the best possible choice for anyone who wants and needs a definitive dose of Fats Waller's greatest recorded performances.

Fats Waller - The Complete Recorded Works ~ Volume 4 (2008)


Jazz | M4A VBR kbps | 4 CD | 601 Mb

Vol. 4 in JSP's thorough and affordable series of four-CD sets devoted to the complete works of Fats Waller contains all of his studio recordings made in New York, Chicago, and Hollywood between September 9, 1936, and April 12, 1938. This segment of Waller's astonishingly prolific career found him leading so many inspired and artistically rewarding sessions that Vol. 4 is recommended as heartily as was the previous installation. There are 102 tracks in total, including eight alternate takes sewn onto the end of the fourth disc along with a rare alternate realization of "Big Business, Pts. 1-2," an original cast recording from the revue Hot Chocolates that features a theater ensemble led by comedians Billy Higgins and Eddie Green with bluesy instrumental accompaniments by pianist Thomas Waller. This classic if Jim Crow-infused example of early-20th century Negro vaudeville provides crucial context for the showbiz environment within which Waller developed his skills and ultimately prevailed as one of the nation's most popular entertainers. During the year 1937 Fats Waller & His Rhythm recorded some of their all-time greatest instrumentals, including "Boo Hoo," "Blue Turning Grey Over You," and the famous four-minute version of "Honeysuckle Rose." Eight of the vocal tracks from this period are followed by instrumental flip sides that allow for more solos and creative interaction between the players. This formula worked especially well on the bluesy "San Anton'" and the ebullient "Swingin' Them Jingle Bells." In addition to nine examples of what he sounded like at the helm of a 13-piece big band (Disc D tracks seven through 15), Waller is mostly heard with his core Rhythm band (trumpeter Herman Autrey, reedman Eugene Sedric, guitarist Albert Casey, bassist Charles Turner or Cedric Wallace, and drummer Wilmore Slick Jones). He also performs as a solo pianist (Disc B tracks 23-26); in a jam session at Victor with trumpeter Bunny Berigan, trombonist Tommy Dorsey, guitarist Dick McDonough, and drummer George Wettling (Disc B tracks 5 and 6); and with a short-lived West Coast version of his Rhythm, whose recordings are most memorable for the steel guitar work of Ceele Burke (Disc C tracks 16-23). This group's renderings of "Georgia on my Mind" and "On the Sunny Side of the Street" were non-commercial audition recordings for warm-voiced singer Peggy Dade, and would not become available to the public until decades later during the first truly comprehensive posthumous Fats Waller LP reissue projects.

Benny Joy - Crash The Party ~ The Story 1957-61 (2009)


Rockabilly, Rock'n'Roll | Mp3 320 kbps | 3 CD | 485 Mb

Benny Joy was one of the umpteen rockabilly acts who enjoyed some regional success in the 1950s but never broke though to nationwide recognition, only to be embraced by rockabilly collectors decades later. The Florida-based Joy (born Benny Eidson) cut a handful of solid rockers such as "Spin the Bottle" and "Button Nose" that are the stuff of legend among rockabilly fanatics, along with some fine moody numbers like "I'm Doubtful of Your Love," before leaving performing behind for a career as a Nashville songwriter, where he penned tunes for the likes of Marty Robbins, Mel Tillis, and Johnny Rivers. One of Joy's biggest supporters is Billy Miller, singer with the A-Bones and founder of Norton Records; the A-Bones released an entire album of Benny Joy material in 1996, and now Miller lets the man speak for himself on Crash the Party: The Benny Joy Story 1957-1961, an expansive three-CD set that collects Joy's rare single sides along with a treasure trove of alternate takes, home recordings, demo tapes, and unreleased material. While the titles suggest that Benny Joy's tunes were typical teen fare of the era, "Crash the Party," "Button Nose," "Rollin' to the Jukebox Rock," and "Miss Bobby Sox" are all tougher stuff than that, with lyrics that took the rites of teen passage seriously as Joy makes the most of his intense vocal style, reinforced by the hot guitar work of his sidekick Big John Taylor ("Button Nose" and "Hey High School Baby" sound almost lascivious all these years later). Joy also wrote or co-wrote all but eight of the 76 tracks on this set (Taylor composed the rest), and his skill with both melodies and lyrics is impressive, with this wealth of material sounding remarkably consistent in its effortless cool. Crash the Party has been sequenced for feel rather than historical chronology, so Joy's original singles are scattered among the outtakes' scratchy-sounding demo acetates and home-recorded tapes, so folks hoping for a concise picture of Joy's career will have to do some digging. But all three discs reveal their share of welcome surprises, and Joy's songs are strong enough that hearing them in a variety of different contexts never gets tiresome. If Crash the Party is almost more Benny Joy than most folks would want or need, the music (and Miller's fine liner notes) leaves no doubt that he clearly deserved the stardom that eluded him in his lifetime, and this is easily the definitive celebration of the man and his music; crank this up and let that jukebox rock!

Fats Waller - The Complete Recorded Works ~ Volume 5 (2008)


Jazz | M4A VBR kbps | 4 CD | 571 Mb

Fats Waller was a vocalist, composer, even a comedian and satirist, but most importantly, he was a phenomenally gifted piano player, and his smooth stride style always sounds fresh and vital. This jam-packed four-disc, 101-track box, the fifth multi-disc box in Ted Kendall's definitive and ongoing overview of the pianist's career, covers 1938 through 1940 and includes recording sessions Waller did in New York, London, and Chicago. Few performers in the history of jazz, or in the pop realm for that matter, have been able to combine such musical brilliance with such a steady, fun, and crowd-pleasing manner, traits that made Waller the prototypical entertainer. This is joyous music, and there is a ton of it here.

Fats Waller - The Complete Recorded Works ~ Volume 6 (2008)


Jazz | M4A VBR kbps | 5 CD | 673 Mb

During his short life Thomas Wright Waller made it onto an enormous number of phonograph records as soloist, leader, sideman and accompanist. Each decade in the second half of the 20th century brought forth Fats Waller albums that ranged from budget "best-of" collections to intensive chronological surveys. It wasn't until 2006 that producer Ted Kendall and the JSP label began fulfilling the lifelong ambition of jazz archivist and remastering wizard John R.T. Davies by setting out to reissue literally every recording that Waller is known or believed to have made, in one extended anthology of unprecedented proportions. Packaged in reasonably priced four-CD sets, every episode in Waller's 21-year recording career has been revisited with precision. For sound quality and meticulous exactitude, no one has ever handled the recorded evidence more lovingly or thoroughly. Volume 6, swollen to five CDs for a total of 25 discs thus far in the series (more than a full day of uninterrupted listening for those who are so inclined) contains all of his studio recordings dating from the spring of 1940 through to the V-Disc session of September 16, 1943, almost exactly three months to the day before his sudden death at the age of 39. The complete range of Waller's musical personality is represented here, from intimate ballads to some of his all-time rowdiest blow-outs.

VA - Rare Pop Instrumentals Of The Fifties (2015)


Instrumental, Pop, Rock | Mp3 320 kbps | 185 Mb

Once upon a time, it was a melody that truly sold a song, along with a clever way of bringing it across. This collection is devoted to that concept; Rare Pop Instrumentals of the Fifties, as the title suggests, gathers together 31 songs without vocals that for the most part enjoyed a run on the hit parade before rock & roll became the staple of the singles charts. Dominated by talented instrumentalists and pop orchestras, Rare Pop Instrumentals of the Fifties is full of jaunty tunes ("The Poor People of Paris"), charming novelty pieces ("The Typewriter"), themes from hit movies ("Main Title from 'The Man with the Golden Arm'"), evocative mood music ("Canadian Sunset"), period exotica ("Chinatown, My Chinatown"), and much more. Well sequenced and mastered with care, Rare Pop Instrumentals of the Fifties should please fans of pre-rock pop tunes and those who fondly remember mid-century melodies.

VA - I Dig 'Em All ~ The Swan Records Story 1957-1962 (2014)


Doo Wop, Pop Rock, Rhythm & Blues | Mp3 320 kbps | 2 CD | 291 Mb

Swan Records was best-known for recording jumping R&B and rock & roll from teen idols to doo wop groups, both of which are featured pretty prominently on I Dig 'Em All: The Swan Records Story. A double-disc set released by One Day in 2014, I Dig 'Em All concentrates on singles Swan released between 1957 and 1961, a period when Freddy Cannon was the biggest act on the label. His big hits -- "Tallahassee Lassie," "Palisades Park," "Way Down Yonder in New Orleans" -- are here, and they're the only well-circulated hits on the comp. Danny & the Juniors are here, but not with "At the Hop," there are singles by Lee Andrews, plus Dicky Doo & the Don'ts' memorable novelty "Nee Nee Na Na Na Na Nu Nu." There are other Dicky Doo songs here, none quite so good, and there's a lot of other pretty good R&B and OK sock-hop rock & roll, plus the occasional worthwhile left-field rarity like Roy Buchanan storming through "Mule Train Stomp."

Jack Scott - Classic Scott ~ The Way I Walk (1996)


Country, Rock'n'Roll | Mp3 320 kbps | 5 CD | 814 Mb

With the exception of Roy Orbison and Elvis, no white rock & roller of the time ever developed a finer voice with a better range than Jack Scott, or cut a more convincing body of work in rockabilly, rock & roll, country-soul, gospel, country-pop, or blues. And it's all here on this five-CD set, which probably seems at first like more Jack Scott than most of us need. Its 134 tracks include very, very few songs that aren't worth hearing at least twice (and most a lot more) and have more than their share of surprises. Anyone who laments Scott's failure to remain a rockabilly artist will be surprised at just how much he brought to country ballads and gospel, as well as the convincingly bluesy approach to rock & roll that he maintained years into his recording career. The handful of rockabilly tracks here, confined to the first half of the first disc (with their stereo mixes appearing on the last one), show Scott as a potential rival to Elvis Presley and Gene Vincent. He found success as more of a ballad singer, however, and never returned to his rock & roll roots for more than a song at a time. At the end of the 1950s, he moved back into the haven of country music, where he'd started in his teen years. The fit wasn't an ideal one, although Scott was good enough to make an album's worth of Hank Williams songs a worthwhile venture. This box has it all, mastered about as well as it's ever likely to be. Moreover, good as everything else is, the producers of this box have saved the best for last -- unissued, undated demos a few of which are worth the price of a CD themselves.
