Editorial Reviews

A superb, mostly self-taught musician, Jimmy Cobb is the elder statesman of all the incredible Miles Davis bands. Cobb's inspirational work with Miles, John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderly and Co. spanned 1957 until 1963 and included the masterpiece Kind of Blue, the most popular jazz recording in history. On this new Chesky Records recording, Jazz In the Key of Blue, Jimmy Cobb partners with past collaborators Roy Hargrove and John Webber and guitarist Russell Malone for this collection of standards.

This is the album I have been hoping to discover (and own) that I'd just about given up on ever finding. I, like so many others, fell in love with Miles Davis' KIND OF BLUE. There was a coolness, a tastefulness and beauty to that album that I don't think I'd ever heard before, and absolutely have NOT heard since. So there I was always wanting another taste of of a particular kind of magic that was somehow always, just out of my reach. Until I sampled the cuts on the JIMMY COBB QUARTET: JAZZ IN THE KEY OF BLUE. Which I immediately ran out, purchased and found (to be): a dream come true. It seems absolutely predestined that the connecting link would have to be Jimmy Cobb. He held the reins of the stardust that was KIND OF BLUE. And, it is precisely his own particular kind of genius as a drummer that is at the heart of this album. First, in the musicians he has chosen: Roy Hargrove (Trumpet/Flugelhorn), Russell Malone (Guitar), and John Webber (Bass). The musical approach to each and every song on this album is simply something awesome to behold. Each musician in service of each of the songs and one another, throughout. No one ever, not for an instant, gets in anyone's way. And no one, not for an instant, ever points to his own chops, musically. I kept wondering if Mr. Cobb would, being the leader and a legend, step in the direction of musically pointing to himself. Or throw in something up-tempo for the sake of variety; after all, its an album of ballads. Only Jimmy Cobb would know exactly what NOT to do to capture and sustain the gossamar, phosphorescent quality that was at the heart of the most popular Jazz album of all time - and give birth to another album that has completely its own SUPREME BEAUTY: unique, original, wholly belonging - UNTO ITSELF.Read more ›

Natural sound from one magic microphone that really captures the air and subtle sounds of an intimate performance by master musicians. A great morning listen.

As other reviews have noted, this is a very mellow, laid-back CD. The playing is always understated and tasteful. Everything meshes wonderfully together with no unpleasant surprises. If Roy Hargrove records another album like this one he may have to change his name to Roy "Sweets" Hargrove. He can wail with the best on bop tunes but his playing here is pure honey.

Pair this CD with a nice glass of wine and the perfect romantic ambiance is set for you.

This is a fantastic album, intimate, with excellent musicianship. As others have said, classic and very much in the style of Kind of Blue. And of course the recording is superb coming from Chesky. They don't make music like this anymore...

I am happy to concur with the previous reviews and comments. I am at this moment giving it my third or fourth listen in the past few months, and agree that this beautiful album will satisfy any mature jazz lovers. Both Hargrove and Malone, young masters by any standard, are suburb, and Cobb's leadership and sensitivity assure this CD its high rating. The recording quality, as mentioned, is outstanding. I look forward to many more enjoyable listens.

No doubt about Jimmy Cobb and his friends, as this is a classic album. The true story here is Chesky Records. If you've not experienced the refined recording techniques they apply your missing a real treat. They are the masters of sound reproduction! Instrument and microphone placement and speaker delivery is incredible! You are there!
