Nathan HainesPoet's Embrace ... CD
Haven/Warner (UK), 2012. New Copy ... $13.99
A really great change for saxophonist Nathan Haines – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given how much we already liked him before! The set's a straight jazz outing – of the kind that really lets Haines' strengths on reeds shine forth beautifully – soaring out soulfully in ways that are quite different than his more groove-oriented recordings – yet still equally soulful! Nathan's tenor is wonderful – as deep in tone and rich in feeling as some of the greats of the 60s generation – yet informed with a slight spiritual sense of phrasing as well, even though the overall production and setting is downright classic. The group's a quartet – with Kevin Field on piano, Alain Koetsier on drums, and Thomas Botting on bass – and titles include the Haines' originals "Realisation", "Universal Man", "Ancestral Dance", "The Poet's Embrace", and "Consequence" – plus a version of Roy Brooks' "Eboness".

OH KrillKrill Papers ... CD
DC Recordings (UK), 2000. Used ... $2.99
The title sounds like some cool early 70s thriller – and so does the music! The group's a stripped-down combo with keyboards, guitar, sax, trumpet, and percussion – and they play with a style that reminds us of dark 70s soundtracks like Death Wish or some of Roy Budd's best work. Don't worry about the fact that they're a new group – because there's no kitschy gimmickry or fake retro feel. The grooves are solid all the way through – and if the album had the date of 1974 stamped on the back, you'd probably never guess they were around today! All instrumental, with a hip jazzy downtempo sound – and a fresh approach that will have you pulling this one out again and again. Titles include "Seven Up Swing", "Riding High", "Reaching Up", "Back Room Shuffle", "Yesterday's Hero", and "Dusk Till Dawn". CD

New Nuyorican Soul (Masters At Work)Nuyorican Soul ... CD
Giant Step/Talkin' Loud, 1997. Used ... Out Of Stock
A massive record – and an instant legend the day it was released! Masters At Work host the beautiful meeting of a host legendary artists – Roy Ayers, George Benson, Eddie Palmieri, Tito Puente, Jocelyn Brown, Vince Montana, and others – all united in a magical session that brings Latin firmly back to the dancefloor with the power and majesty of the best 70s recordings! The whole thing's amazing – a fantastic mix of Latin, funk, jazz, and house that's inspired a whole new generation of musicians – and which has still yet to be duplicated years later! Includes the massive remake of "I Am the Blackgold of the Sun", plus "Runaway", "Sweet Tears", and the great cover of Bob James' "Nautilus". CD
