Herbie Mann: Peace Pieces (Wienerworld)WIN A HERBIE MANN CD - PEACE PIECES (WIENERWORLD)
Herbie Mann played a wide variety of music throughout his career. He became quite popular in the 1960s, but in the '70s became so immersed in pop and various types of world music that he seemed lost to jazz. However, Mann never lost his ability to improvise creatively as his later recordings attest.

Peace Pieces is a tribute album to the late pianist Bill Evans, one of Mann’s favourite musicians. Features renowned American trumpeter and flugelhornist Randy Brecker. The rhythm section comprises of guitarist Bruce Dunlap, bassist Eddie Gomez, drummer Louis Nash and percussionist Sammy Figueroa.


The Song Is You - Woodstock Jazz Festival (Wienerworld)WIN A WOODSTOCK JAZZ FESTIVAL CD - THE SONG IS YOU (WIENERWORLD)
This performance by fusion pioneers Jack DeJohnette, Miroslav Vitous, Chick Corea, experimental giant Anthony Braxton, Pat Metheny and one of the originators of cool jazz, Lee Konitz, is a recording of their 1981 concert at the Woodstock Jazz Festival. Brought together for the tenth anniversary of the Creative Music Studio, these six musicians combine for a set that showcases the diverse and adventurous styles and sensibilities of each member.

Founded in the 1970s by Karl Berger and Ornette Coleman, The Creative Music Studio was a community of world class musicians performing in an atmosphere that broke down all conventions of form and style and restructured the music and new and exciting ways. This was a time for music, coming out of the explosive sixties, when all things seemed possible. To hear these standard pieces transformed as they were by this group on this day is to appreciate the compositions as launching pads for free flights of spontaneous, often breathtaking, invention when masters such as these get together to play.
