JOY ROAD-THE COMPLETE WORKS OF PEPPER ADAMS (Joy Road Sampler)/various: Adams is one of those honking post WW2, Detroit sax men that time and tide are coming dangerously close to sweeping under the rug. A hard hitting cat that wasn’t fully appreciated in his time, a jazz historian is out to right that wrong by bringing together a bunch of new players that have the spirit to keep the vibe alive. This is a five volume set, mostly available digitally only but with a physical sampler that does a great job of getting your head in the game. Even if it’s played and interpreted by the new generation, it sounds like the real thing and you should check it out if you fancy yourself a real jazzbo. Fine stuff throughout.

ALEXIS COLE/Sings Pepper Adams: Actually a break out set from the five volume Pepper Adams tribute set, up and coming New York vocalist Cole takes the artistic leap of faith by singing recently written lyrics to Adams melodies. Cole comes up a winner here by finding the cabaret vibe in 50s jazz like this. Even when the lyrics get too heavy handed, Cole can handle her voice like an instrument and let’s you just fall into the late night vibe that everyone needs once in a while. Very much a nice thing to reach for when you need something to give you the right dose of after hours.
