Pinetop Perkins & Friends SoundClips
Clapton, BB King, Jimmie Vaughan, & More! TLC: Perkins
It's remarkable enough that Pinetop Perkins released Pinetop Perkins & Friends mere weeks before his 95th birthday, but that the session is full of sensational playing and vital blues spirit is nothing short of miraculous.

Mare Nostrum From An Unlikely Trio SoundClipsACT: Mare Nostrum
"Mare Nostrum's biggest surprise isn't its instrumentation - a trio of accordion, trumpet and piano - but how natural the combination sounds in its execution... Let's hope these musicians meet again to record more music - Mare Nostrum is a precious gem." -All Music Guide
More From ACT Music-Vision
E.L.B.: Dream Flight
Huong Thanh/Nguyen Le: Fragile Beauty
Nils Landgren Funk Unit: Paint It Blue

Baden Powell at Rio Jazz Club SoundClips IRI: Powell
"His fingers are fleet, but he never overdoes things, leaving plenty of space and often implying the complex rhythms at the heart of a piece rather than overtly stating them... Even at his most pensive, Powell is brilliant, and you have to believe he was incapable of anything less." -All Music Guide

Miles From India Sound ClipsTSQ: Miles From India
"Any fan of Miles Davis’ music, especially those who enjoy the music he created from around the time of In a Silent Way to the end of his incredible life, will not want to miss Miles From India. This improbable-seeming 2-CD set is packed with timeless compositions and jaw-dropping virtuosity."

More From Times Square Records
Freddie Hubbard: On the Real Side
Trilok Gurtu: Izzat
Peru Negro: Zamba Matato

A Trio Becomes A Quartet Sound ClipsE.L.B
"Dream Flight retains all that made [the first] E.L.B. such a compelling listen, while demonstrating the growth one would hope to hear in the intervening years... The addition of Guillaume gives Dream Flight greater breadth, but it's the chemistry shared by Erksine, LĂȘ and Benita that drives the disc."
More From ACT Music-Vision
Fresu, Galliano, Lundgren: Mare Nostrum
Huong Thanh/Nguyen Le: Fragile Beauty
Nils Landgren Funk Unit: Licence to Funk

Maceo Parker: Roots & Grooves Sound ClipsTLC: Maceo Parker
"From the first swinging blasts behind Parker's horn on "Hallelujah I Love Her So," "big" is the operative word... This double set was an instant classic. [Ray Charles] was not the only genius who loved company - Parker, too, has a blast working with one of the hippest big bands in the world." -All Music Guide
