What A Wonderful World by Bob Thiele / George David Weiss / Robert Thiele Jr.
I see trees of green, red roses too I see them bloom for me and you And I think to myself, what a wonderful world I see skies so blue and clouds of white The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night And I think to myself, what a wonderful world The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky Are also on the faces of people going by I see friends shaking hands, saying, "how do you do?" They're really saying, "I love you" I hear babies cry, I watch them grow They'll learn much more, than I'll never know And I think to myself, what a wonderful world Yes, I think to myself, what a wonderful world

We have all the time in the world Time enough for life to unfold All the precious things love has in store We have all the love in the world If that's all we have, you will find We need nothing more Every step of the way will find us With the cares of the world far behind us We have all the time in the world Just for love Nothing more, nothing less Only love Every step of the way will find us With the cares of the world far behind us We have all the time in the world Just for love Nothing more, nothing less Only love
One of the best trumpeters to emerge from the avant-garde, Bobby Bradford largely fulfilled the potential of Don Cherry.
He is best known for his longtime association with clarinetist John Carter; his mellow trumpet blended in well with Carter's dissonant flights. Since the clarinetist's death, Bradford frequently led a quintet (The Mo'tet) featuring Vinny Golia and occasionally Marty Ehrlich. In the '90s, he also performed with John Stevens' Freebop, The David Murray Octet, and Charlie Haden's Liberation Music Orchestra.
Review by Scoot Yanow (A.M.G.): Cornetist Bobby Bradford has recorded far too infrequently throughout his career. A mellow-toned player with an adventurous style that is usually surprisingly accessible, Bradford is well-featured on this excellent quintet date with altoist James Kousakis, both Roberto Miguel Miranda and Mark Dresser on bass and drummer Sherman Ferguson. Together they perform five of Bradford's originals, music that at its best (particularly on "Sho Nuff Blues" and "Dirty Rag") looks both backwards to earlier styles and extends the innovations of Ornette Coleman.
This album is hard-bop heaven for trumpeters. Billed as a tribute to Fats Navarro, Clifford Brown and Booker Little, it features Woody Shaw, Kenny Dorham, Bill Hardman, Blue Mitchell, Richard Williams and the little-known Walter Kelly. The presence of so much concentrated brass firepower naturally brings out the competitive spirit. Shaw—23 at the time—dazzles with explosive pentatonics. His work on an uptempo version of “What’s New” answers the song’s title with a conception that would eventually solidify his place as an innovator. Dorham, on “Bags Groove” and “Confirmation,” shows off his mastery of bop’s harmonic language. You can hear how he had influenced Shaw at the time.
Mitchell takes a more lyrical, controlled approach to the proceedings and scores via contrast.
Hardman and Williams—lesser lights in the hierarchy—acquit themselves well in the contest. Kelly, more erratic, nevertheless holds his ground. The rhythm section—pianist Lonnie Liston Smith, bassist Peck Morrison and drummer Walter Perkins—is spirited and aggressive (especially Perkins on the nearly 20-minute “Sweet Clifford”). I wonder if such a tribute were held today, who would be called and whether the results.

Recorded August 8 at the Jazz em Agosto Festival. Clean Feed Recorded at the Jazz em Agosto Festival in 2009, Live in Lisbon proposes another way to deal with the old American standards. Instead of passively reproducing the song formats, trumpeter extraordinaire Peter Evans uses its compositional elements as "found materials". And yes, there's some analogies with the visual artist Marcel Duchamp's "ready mades". Those elements can be the tempos, the harmonies, the melodic phrases, but taken apart, deconstructed and gathered in different patterns, in order to enhance improvisation and to liberate choices during the performative process. For instance, "All The Things You Are" by Jerome Kern, "Lush Life" by Billy Strayhorn", "Duke Ellington's Sound of Love" by Charles Mingus, and "What Is This Thing Called Love" by Cole Porter are subjected to this procedure. In consequence, each piece functions like a puzzle being assembled moment by moment - you can recognize the inner materials or not, but they're always present in some form. This is not an attempt to turn simple things complex, but to achieve a looser approach in the context of the centuries old equation between written (by historic masters) and spontaneous collective composition (with contributions from Ricardo Gallo, Tom Blancarte, and Kevin Shea). In his liner notes, Evans says it all: "It is great fun to see what elements of surprise we can squeeze out of something that, on its surface, may seem very familiar." In truth, simplicity is the name of the game here played, and it emerges in various levels, from the most intriguing to the unexpected. ~ Clean Feed

Valve trombonist Bob Brookmeyer (who also plays some piano on this long out-of-print Pacific Jazz LP) teams up with guitarists Jim Hall and Jimmy Raney, bassist Bill Crow and drummer Osie Johnson for six group originals. The tunes are fairly basic and all of the cool-toned musicians are up-to-par on the lightly swinging material
