Joanne BrackeenPrism (with bonus track) ... CD
Choice (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99 11.99
Joanne Brackeen's at the top of her game here – working in a unique set of duets with bassist Eddie Gomez – at a level that matches the fire and fury of any of her work with a larger group! Brackeen's got this tremendous command of the keyboard right from the start – a wide sweep that has the notes cascading wonderfully – in rich melodies with a very deep sound, but still lots of sharp edges, and this sense of freedom that makes you think she's always just about to go outside – before pulling it back a bit. Gomez is sublime, as always – and his bass work adapts perfectly to each individual moment – stating itself strongly, but never in a way that's gimmicky at all – and always balanced between a sense of melody and timekeeping too. Titles include "Lost Or Found", "International Festival", "Evanescent", "If You Dare", and "Prism". CD features a bonus alternate of "International Festival". CD

Roland Hanna with George MrazSir Elf Plus 1 ... CD
Choice (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $9.99 11.98
A really great setting for pianist Roland Hanna – a player who always sparkles in a solo setting, but works here with just a bit of bass on the side! The record features duets between Hanna's piano and the bass of George Mraz – but most tracks feature Roland really leading things off, with those flowing lines that are filled with creative imagination – in a style that could only be dubbed Hanna-like, as so few players could ever handle it so well! The addition of bass makes for some nice subtle touches that shape the tunes in gentle ways – and titles include "Majorca", "Yesterdays", "Meeting Of The Minds", "What Does It Matter", and "How Long Has This Been Going On".

Jimmy RowlesJam Face ... CD
Choice (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $9.99 11.99
Jimmy Rowles has always been one hell of a musician, but he really seemed to hit a special stretch in his work during the 70s – a time when he was able to balance his traditional roots with plenty of fresh ideas – all expressed perfectly here in a trio with Buster Williams on bass and Billy Hart on drums! Both players provide an excellent counterpoint to Jimmy's richly soulful lines on piano – and allow him to still hit that cool sense of tone that we love in other records, while also giving the album some more modern rhythmic impulses that really seem to inspire Rowles too. Jimmy sings a bit at times – in that raspy voice that's not unlike the modes used by Bob Dorough or Dave Frishberg – and titles include "Blood Count", "While We're Young", "Irene", "My Mother's Love", and a nice long medley of standards.

Bruce Barth TrioLive At Smalls ... CD
Smalls Live, 2010. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
Bruce Barth is a pianist who always knows how to open up and run – making him an excellent choice for the Smalls Live series – easily some of the best-recorded live jazz CDs in recent years! Barth's touch on the keys is amazing – very fluid, and a mixture of sharp tones and gentler elements – always incredibly well-conceived, and really holding up in the space of the album's extended tunes – which also are almost all original compositions as well! The trio features Vincente Archer on bass and Rudy Royston on drums – and titles include "Yama", "Almost Blues", "Oh Yes I Will", "Afternoon In Lledia", and "Wilsonian Alto". CD

Terence Blanchard GroupChoices ... CD
Concord, 2009. Used ... $1.99
Core grooves from trumpeter Terence Blanchard and combo – but mixed with some compelling words from Cornel West and Bilal! The record's a jazz album at its core, but the presence of West and Bilal makes for a bit of a change, too – kind of an added level of consciousness on top of Blanchard's always-thoughtful music – but never in a way that's too heavy-handed. Other players include Walter Smith III on saxes, Lionel Loueke on guitar, and Fabian Almazan on piano – and a number of tracks are straight instrumentals, without any vocals. Titles include "Journey", "Winding Roads", "Choices", "D's Choice", "Him Or Me", and "A New World". CD

New Henry CainFunky Organ-ization Of Henry Cain ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Sweet and funky organ work from the great Henry Cain – a little known player who recorded on some excellent sides for Capitol in the 60s, including some of the albums by Howard Roberts! This set is Cain's one full album for the label – and it's a tight and jumpy set of instrumentals, produced by David Axelrod with a nice sharp edge. Arrangements are by HB Barnum and Oliver Nelson – both of whom really hit the right sound for Cain's clean approach to the Hammond keys – setting up enough space for him to groove freely, yet still keeping the band tightly reigned into the rhythm of the cuts. Titles include "Horror Scope", "Shake A Lady", "Dead End Street", "Why", "Sunny", "The Way I Feel", and "Critic's Choice". LP, Vinyl record album

Chicago Underground DuoAge Of Energy ... LP
Northern Spy, 2012. Near Mint- ... $16.99
The title's an interesting choice – given that the energy here is often quite laidback – a set of open sonic explorations between cornet player Rob Mazurek and drummer Chad Taylor – both of whom handle plenty of electronics in the set as well! Both Rob and Chad are musicians who can work in harder, sharper modes when needed – but here, they relax into a groove that really recalls the late 90s Chicago scene that both helped them raise up in prominence – in a style that's an atmospheric mix of jazz and other instrumental modes. Titles include "Winds & Sweeping Pines", "It's Alright", "Castle In Your Heart", and "Age Of Energy" – the last of which does have Taylor moving with a stronger punch than on other tracks.

Bill EvansBill Evans Album (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $16.99
A pretty sublime album from Bill Evans – one that has him playing both Fender Rhodes and Steinway, overdubbed together, for an effect that's laidback and completely wonderful! The Fender Rhodes was a natural choice for Evans – given his fluid lyrical style, and on this set (and on his equally great record for MGM) Bill opens up with an approach that really suits him well. Each track features him shifting back and forth between electric and acoustic modes, dancing from one to the other in a way that makes the instruments come together beautifully – supported by some incredibly soulful bass work by Eddie Gomez, and drums by Marty Morrell. Titles include "Sugar Plum", "Funkallero", "Waltz for Debby", "TTT", "Re: Person I Knew", and "Comrade Conrad". CD features 3 bonus alternate tracks, too! CD

New Bill EvansBill Evans At The Montreux Jazz Festival ... LP
Verve, 1968. Very Good- ... $4.99
Bill Evans' first famous appearance at the Montreux Jazz Festival – a great 60s trio session, with Eddie Gomez on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums! The tunes are mostly relatively familiar ones, but the ensemble on the set gives them a freer and more lyrical feel than you might expect – especially with DeJohnette on drums, who is a somewhat more powerful choice than some of Bill's other drummers of the 60s. Eddie Gomez is great, as always – with that round bass sound that we totally love – and titles include "Nardis", "Sleepin Bee", "Embraceable You", "Someday My Prince Will Come", "Mother Of Earl", "One For Helen", and "Walkin Up".

Art FarmerPerception ... CD
Argo/Universal (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $13.99
An amazingly beautiful set of tracks from Art Farmer – playing here with superb accompaniment from a young Harold Mabern on piano, in a laidback quartet format that really lets Art open up! Art's playing is fresh and creative throughout – never too over the top, and always blown with that subtle genius that he was bringing to his work in the 60s – a pure exercise in understatement, with a quality that seems to make the notes fall out of the air by themselves. Rhythm is by Tommy Williams on bass and Roy McCurdy on drums – and the choice of material includes Tom McIntosh's great composition "The Day After", plus Art's "Punsu" and "Kayin" – and versions of "Change Partners", "Blue Room", and "Nobody's Heart".

New Heath BrothersJazz Family ... CD
Concord, 1998. Used ... $0.99
The Heath Brothers groove is nicely expanded by a set of added horns – all of whom bring a nice sense of fullness to the tracks, in a way that recalls some of Jimmy Heath's best arranging styles from years back! Jimmy's in the frontline on tenor and soprano sax, joined by Percy Heath on acoustic bass and cello, and Albert Heath on drums and percussion – and the rest of the combo features piano by Jeb Patton, trombone from Benny Powell, and 5 other brass players who deepen the tones and colors of the tunes quite nicely. There's a great choice of songs here too – a fair bit of Heath-penned tracks that show the thoughtful writing of Jimmy and his brothers – on tracks that include "A Harmonic Future", "I'm Lost", "13th House", "Move To The Groove", and "Three At Last" – plus a great take on Kenny Dorham's "None Shall Wander".

Earl HinesFatha – The New Earl Hines Trio ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
The great Earl Hines, heard here in a really fresh setting for the 60s – a "new" trio that features Ahmed Abdul Malik on bass and Oliver Jackson on drums – both players whose modern energy really adds a lot to Hines' legendary work on piano! The meeting of generations is apparent both in the performance of the record, and in the choice of titles – a time-panning mix that blends 60s tunes with much older jazz classics – swung by the younger pair on bass and drums, but given a hell of a lot of character by Hines on piano – and on vocals on two numbers too. Titles include "The Girl From Ipanema", "Frenesi", "Broadway", "At Sundown", "Runnin Wild", and "Louise". CD

Paul HornVisions ... LP
Epic, 1974. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Nice fusiony jazz done with soul and airy atmophere by Paul Horn – including some choice covers, and sounds that range from fusiony jazz with a little bit of funk and more lilting numbers lifted by flute and wordless vocals! Horn has a tendency to go head first into a more new agey vibe, but here we get a more grounded approach with more soul and bits of funk in the bass, keys & percussion. The players include Larry Carlton, Joe Sample and Tom Scott. Includes a nice takes on a trio of Stevie Wonder numbers: "Too High", "Visions" and "Living For The City", Joni Mitchell's "Blue" and "Chelsea Morning" (the former featuring some vocals and keyboards by Joni), plus "High Tide"., "Long Time Gone", "Song With No Words" and "Dida".

Ahmad JamalAhmad Jamal's Alhambra ... LP
Argo, 1961. Very Good ... $8.99
Not just a wonderful record for the music, but also for the classic cover image too – a photo of Ahmad Jamal's righteous night club The Alhambra – an Eastern-themed spot on Chicago's Michigan Ave, where Jamal made some incredible music for a few short years! Jamal was one of the few jazz musicians to control his means of production this strongly – and, according to legend, the club actually closed down because he wouldn't allow alcohol to be served – a key support of his spiritual beliefs, but not the greatest choice when running a nightclub. Regardless of that history, though, the music continues to be as proud and powerful as ever – a key modern moment in jazz piano, handled by a trio that also features the legendary Israel Crosby on bass, as well as Vernell Fournier on drums. The set was recorded inside the Alhambra – and tracks include the lovely "Snow Fall", plus hip Jamal takes on "The Breeze & I", "Sweet & Lovely", "The Party's Over", and "Autumn Leaves".

Jazz IncorporatedLive At Smalls ... CD
Smalls Live, 2010. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
The trumpet of Jeremy Pelt really makes this album sparkle – blown with a mixture of lyrical tones and sharper edges, and getting great support from a lineup that features Anthony Wonsey on piano, Dezron Douglas on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums! The solo horn in the lead also gives the record a definite trumpet focus in its execution, and choice of tunes – which include excellent numbers like Art Farmer's "Punsu", Dizzy Gillespie's "Woody N You", and Duke Pearson's sublime "Is That So" – offered up here in homage to Lee Morgan's wonderful reading of the track on his Rajah album. Pelt also contributed the original "Shout" – alongside Wonsey's "Hey Jimmy" – and like most albums in this great series, the tracks are quite long – with loads of room for solo space! CD

Thad Jones & Mel Lewis with Ruth BrownThe Big Band Sound Of Thad Jones & Mel Lewis Featuring Miss Ruth Brown ... LP
Solid State, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $2.99
Ruth Brown joins the big band of Thad Jones and Mel Lewis – in a set that's a real standout in the career of all three artists! Thad and Mel already have a pretty great groove going at this point – a large ensemble approach to jazz, yet one that's swingingly soulful – very much on a par with some of Gerald Wilson's hip work of the same time at time. And adding in Ruth Brown's vocals is a great choice – as she not only needs a great showcase like this for her amazing voice, but also because she really helps unlock a soulful sort of energy that the group always had in their instrumental music. The approach is a bit like some of Etta Jones' best 60s recordings – a nice shift for Brown – and titles include "Black Coffee", "Fine Brown Frame", "You Won't Let Go", "Trouble In Mind", and "Be Anything (But Be Mine)".

Contemporary/OJC, 1958. Used ... $5.99
An odd choice for material, but a surprisingly nice record – and just the kind of session needed to break Barney Kessel out of some of his too-familiar trio modes of the 50s! The record here features jazz takes on tunes from the opera Carmen – in case you didn't figure that out from the title – all adapted by Barney himself, on charts that feature Buddy Collette on flute, Ray Linn on trumpet, Victor Feldman on vibes, and Andre Previn on piano – a lineup that helps keep things creative and playful without sounding too gimmicky. Titles include "Free As A Bird", "If You Dig Me", "A Pad On The Edge Of Town", "The Gypsy's Hip", and "Carmen's Cool". CD

John LewisJohn Lewis Piano ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good- ... $14.99
One of the strongest sessions recorded by pianist John Lewis in the 50s – a date that shows depths of his talents that run even greater than his work with the Modern Jazz Quartet, quite possibly because is work on piano is at the forefront of the record throughout! There's a sense of darkness here that really fits the image on the cover – a style that's stated clearly on piano lines that are often as spacious as they are gentle, but which also have a moodier undercurrent below, thanks to Lewis' careful choice of keys and notes. The backing is often quite spare – Lewis sometimes plays just with Connie Kay's drums, or the guitar of either Jim Hall or Barry Galbraith – and at its fullest, the record features 2 trio numbers with the bass of Percy Heath and drums of Connie Kay. Tracks are lyrically and thoughtfully composed – and titles include "Two Lyric Pieces", "Harlequin", "D&E", "Little Girl Blue", and "Warmeland". LP, Vinyl record album

Ramsey LewisSun Goddess – The Best Of Ramsey Lewis ... CD
Jazz FM (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A nicely done compilation of pivotal work from the great Ramsey Lewis – focusing on his work for Columbia/CBS Records from the 70s and early 80s – and very well chosen at that! Of course the title comes from Ramsey's iconic album of the same name, and this 2CD set features a few tracks from that one, but it's also got numbers from Tequila Mockingbird, Ramsey, Three Piece Suite, Love Notes and other great records, plus choice live work, his album with Nancy Wilson and other standouts. It kind of focuses on the sunny electric jazz and fusiony soul groovers, and Jazz FM does a great job with the selections! 32 tracks on 2CDs: "Spring High", "Caring For You", "Tambura, "So Much More", "Lynn (Live)", "Hot Dawgit", "Paradise", "Expansions", "Sun Goddess", "Sassy Stew (Live)", "Whisper Zone", "Camino El Bueno", "All The Way Live", "Intimacy", "I'll Always Dream About You" and more.

Teruo NakamuraRising Sun ... LP
Polydor, 1977. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Massive music from bassist Teruo Nakamura – a set that brings a Japanese take to the US fusion scene of the mid 70s – blending Teruo's warm, soulful vision with some great work from players who include Steve Grossman and Carter Jefferson on reeds, Lonnie Smith on keyboards, and Harry Whitaker on electric piano! The tracks are tight, but never slick – driven strongly forward by Nakamura's killer basslines, but always in a relaxed, open way that gives the players plenty of room to solo freely – almost with the energy of some of the more electric spiritual jazz sets of the 70s, but a bit tighter overall. The album's a killer all the way through – a surprising, but excellent choice for wider issue in the US at the time – and titles include "Red Shoes", "Precious One", "The Cat", "Steppin with Lord", and "Sweet Pea & Collard Greens".

Horace ParlanHappy Frame Of Mind (45rpm – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1963/1986. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $42.99
Wicked work by pianist Horace Parlan – and one of his most stunning Blue Note sessions ever! The album was first recorded in 1963, but then kept on the shelf for years – seeing only brief release as part of a Booker Ervin package in the late 70s, and finally coming out with the proper cover and lineup at some point in the 80s! Why Blue Note waited so long is a mystery, because the album's a gem throughout – almost more important, and more starkly modern than any of Parlan's other work for the label. Booker Ervin leads the frontline on tenor, alongside Johnny Coles on trumpet, Grant Green on guitar, and the rhythm section of Butch Warren and Billy Higgins. Parlan's choice of material is fantastic – with a number of Africanist tracks that feature unique rhythmic patterns that really push the soloists! Titles include "A Tune For Richard", "Dexi", "Home Is Africa", "Kucheza Blues", and "Back From The Gig". LP, Vinyl record album

Hannibal Marvin PetersonOne With The Wind ... CD
Muse, 1993. New Copy ... $4.99
Hannibal made some mighty wonderful music in the 70s – and he really carries that tradition strongly forward on this overlooked gem from the early 90s! The album's not as boldly righteous as some of Peterson's dates for MPS, but it's still got a hell of a lot of soul – a well-blown trumpet line right out in front, and a soaring, spiritual undercurrent that makes even familiar tunes sparkle with a subtle sense of power. As always with Hannibal's records, the choice of players is great – Joe Ford on alto and tenor, Michael Cochrane on piano, Lonnie Plaxico on bass, Cecil Brooks III on drums, and Jeff Haynes on percussion – players that fit the Muse Records setting of the date, but seem to rise to new levels in Peterson's company. Titles include "Echoes", "Revelation", "Nile's Song", "One With The Wind", "Change Is Going To Come", and "Glow". CD

Bud Powell/Don ByasTribute To Cannonball (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia, 1961. Used ... $13.99
A gem of a session from the European expatriot scene of the postwar years – not really a tribute to Cannonball Adderley, but a rare meeting of Bud Powell and Don Byas in the studio, produced by Cannonball in Paris in 1961! The record has a tremendous amount of fire and focus – especially on the part of Powell, who could sometimes falter in a European setting – and although Byas' horn might seem a contrasting choice for Bud, he really burns with a lot of energy here – arcing, soaring, and turning with lines that show that his talents hadn't dimmed at all out of the American limelight. As always with his few productions from the time, Cannonball shows a great deal of sensitivity and patience with the players – probably a key factor of the success of the set. Also noteworthy is the rest of the group – which includes Idrees Sulieman on trumpet, Pierre Michelot on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums. Titles include "Jeannine", "Just One Of Those Things", "All The Things You Are", "I Remember Clifford", and "Jackie My Little Cat". CD

Delmark, 2014. Used ... $7.99
Maybe the greatest work we've heard so far from Chicago bassist Jason Roebke – a key player on so many sessions for other jazzmen in recent years, but a hell of a visionary leader on his own! Roebke composed all new material for the record – and the set's performed by an octet that's overloaded with heavyweights – including Josh Berman on cornet, Jason Stein on bass clarinet, Keefe Jackson on tenor, Jeb Bishop on trombone, Jason Adasiewicz on vibes, and Mike Reed on drums – all players very familiar with Roebke's sound and style, and a great choice to carry out his mission in the music. There's definitely a compositional structure to the record, but many sounds are quite free, too – individual voices soaring out strongly in this flurry of notes and tones. Titles include "High Red Center", "Slow", "Dirt Cheap", "No Passengers", "Ten Nights", "Shadow", and "Ballin". CD

Drummer Neal Smith has a hell of a group here – Eric Alexander on tenor, Steve Wilson on alto, Mark Whitfield on guitar, and Mulgrew Miller on piano – a lineup that he more than lives up to with his tight leadership, and great choice of material for the date! The tunes include two numbers by Tom McIntosh – a telling inclusion, given the way the album brings together the same strands of soul, swinging, and cerebral that McIntosh brought to his compositions in the early 60s. Smith's got a great way of bringing out the most sensitive aspects of the tunes, while still setting the players free to find their own voice – thanks partly to the long takes on these live recordings – and titles include "Fifty Six", "Stew Peas", "A Portrait Of You", "With Malice Towards None", "The Cup Bearers", and "Junior".

Phil WoodsPhil Woods & His European Rhythm Machine ... CD
Inner City, 1970. New Copy ... $10.99 16.95
An excellent album of funky electric jazz – and possibly the best one that Phil Woods cut with his European group! The quartet's a very hip group that's way hipper than its clunky name – with Gordon Beck on electric piano and organ, Daniel Humair on percussion and drums, and Henri Texier on bass, flute, and African percussion – all instrumentalists who dip heavily into the deep bag of their mighty talents for the date, helping to push Phil's music into some very cool new territory! The album cooks a lot harder than Woods' previous MGM date with the Rhythm Machine group in Europe – and has a really freewheeling vibe, and a sound that's almost outside at points. All tracks are long, with a modal electric approach that's very nice – and funky in the best parts – and titles include "Chromatic Banana", "Ultimate Choice", "The Last Page", and "The Day When The World".

The sound's a bit smoother than Walker's work of the 70s, but still plenty darn nice – thanks to that sly, subtle rasp that David always has in his tone – a slightly earthy root to his music that makes most of the numbers sound plenty darn soulful, even amidst the smoothness. Guest players include Oscar Brasher on trumpet, Joe Clayton on percussion, and Barbara Morrison on just a bit of vocals – and titles include "Directions", "The Power Of Choice", "With A Smile", "Watts At Sunrise", and "Dreams In Flight".

Gene AmmonsLegends Of Acid Jazz – Black Cat!/You Talk That Talk! (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Prestige, 1970/1971. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A pair of funky killers from tenorist Gene Ammons! Black Cat is one of the great funky albums that Gene Ammons cut for Prestige at the start of the 70s – quite different than his earlier work for the label, and a very different showcase for his tenor genius! The whole lineup here is amazing – a quintet that features heavy drums from Idris Muhammad, piano and Fender Rhodes from Harold Mabern, bass from Ron Carter, and some tremendously smoking guitar from the great George Freeman! Freeman goes nuts on the funky cut "The Black Cat" – and other tracks include "Jug Eyes", "Hi Ruth", "Something", and "Piece To Keep Away Evil Spirits". You Talk That Talk is a set done in collaboration with Sonny Stitt – and these two tenor giants meet in the period slightly before Ammons death, and they're grouped with some of the younger funky players on Prestige, like Leon Spencer, Idris Muhammad, and George Freeman. The sound is fairly traditional, but there's some nice funky moments. Tracks include "Out Of It", which was written by Harold Vick, "The People's Choice", written by Harold Ousley, and the title cut, which is a Leon Spencer original. The 14 track set includes the full titles from 2 LPs, plus 2 bonus cuts from a rare source! CD

The tunes are mostly relatively familiar ones, but the ensemble on the set gives them a freer and more lyrical feel than you might expect – especially with DeJohnette on drums, who is a somewhat more powerful choice than some of Bill's other drummers of the 60s. Eddie Gomez is great, as always – with that round bass sound that we totally love – and titles include "Nardis", "Sleepin Bee", "Embraceable You", "Someday My Prince Will Come", "Mother Of Earl", "One For Helen", and "Walkin Up". Includes the bonus track "Quiet Now". CD

New Stan Getz & Bill EvansChick Corea/Bill Evans Sessions ... LP
Verve, Mid 60s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent 60s work by Stan Getz – featuring two of his greatest sessions ever! One disc features some of Getz's best straight jazz of the 60s – played in a perfectly matched quartet with Bill Evans on piano, a perfect choice for Getz's lyrical soulful tone at the time. Titles include "Funkallero", "Melinda", "Grandfather's Waltz", and "Night & Day". The other disc features the classic Sweet Rain LP – a totally solid jazz album, with a quality level that was hardly ever matched by Stan again! The tracks are all long, sweeping, and very spiritual – and the group's a soulful batch of freer players (Chick Corea, Ron Carter, and Grady Tate), who really open Stan up, and drive him to give out some of the best solos of his careers. All tracks are long, and the album includes an amazing version of Corea's "Litha", plus the cuts "Windows", "Con Alma", and "O Grande Amor". One of our favorite jazz albums ever – no fooling!

New Louis HayesReturn Of The Jazz Communicators ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Drummer Louis Hayes always finds a way of working with great groups – and here he's got an especially well-chosen lineup with Abraham Burton on tenor and Steve Nelson on vibes! Both players ring out with this strongly soulful vibe that's clearly inspired by the leader – Burton's very deep tones a perfect complement to some of the sharper, more modern lines from Nelson – driven strongly by the work of David Bryant on piano and the excellent Dezron Douglas on bass. Hayes' power can be felt strongly, even in mellower moments – and Nelson's oft-percussive approach to his tones makes for an excellent choice for the group. Titles include "Shape Shifting", "Groovin For Nat", "Soul Leo", "Simple Pleasures", "Vagabond Ron", and "Lou's Idea". CD

New Ahmad JamalAhmad Jamal's Alhambra ... CD
Argo (Japan), 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not just a wonderful record for the music, but also for the classic cover image too – a photo of Ahmad Jamal's righteous night club The Alhambra – an Eastern-themed spot on Chicago's Michigan Ave, where Jamal made some incredible music for a few short years! Jamal was one of the few jazz musicians to control his means of production this strongly – and, according to legend, the club actually closed down because he wouldn't allow alcohol to be served – a key support of his spiritual beliefs, but not the greatest choice when running a nightclub. Regardless of that history, though, the music continues to be as proud and powerful as ever – a key modern moment in jazz piano, handled by a trio that also features the legendary Israel Crosby on bass, as well as Vernell Fournier on drums. The set was recorded inside the Alhambra – and tracks include the lovely "Snow Fall", plus hip Jamal takes on "The Breeze & I", "Sweet & Lovely", "The Party's Over", and "Autumn Leaves". CD

New Jason RoebkeHigh Red Center ... CD
Delmark, 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Maybe the greatest work we've heard so far from Chicago bassist Jason Roebke – a key player on so many sessions for other jazzmen in recent years, but a hell of a visionary leader on his own! Roebke composed all new material for the record – and the set's performed by an octet that's overloaded with heavyweights – including Josh Berman on cornet, Jason Stein on bass clarinet, Keefe Jackson on tenor, Jeb Bishop on trombone, Jason Adasiewicz on vibes, and Mike Reed on drums – all players very familiar with Roebke's sound and style, and a great choice to carry out his mission in the music. There's definitely a compositional structure to the record, but many sounds are quite free, too – individual voices soaring out strongly in this flurry of notes and tones. Titles include "High Red Center", "Slow", "Dirt Cheap", "No Passengers", "Ten Nights", "Shadow", and "Ballin". CD

New John ZornBig Gundown – John Zorn Plays The Music Of Ennio Morricone ... LP
Icon/Nonesuch, 1985. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A groundbreaking album, put together by Zorn and a group of downtown New York hipsters, as a fitting hommage to the genius of Ennio Morricone! The track list sticks to mostly the bigger known numbers, and the album's got a darkness that we'd actually say was a bit out of place, considering the choice of tracks – but the groups formed by Zorn do a pretty good job of breathing new life into some of the tracks, and the album was a key moment in the recognition of Morricone as one of the century's greatest composers. Players include Robert Quine, Tim Berne, Arto Lindsay, Jim Staley, Bill Frisell, Christian Marclay, Anton Fier, and even Big John Patton. Titles include "Erotico", "Once Upon A Time In The West", "Giu La Testa", "Battle Of Algiers", and "The Big Gundown". LP, Vinyl record album

New Ryan KisorLive At Smalls ... CD
Smalls Live, 2008. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Trumpeter Ryan Kisor's got a great partner in the frontline here – alto player Sherman Irby, whose angular tones really give the record an edge! As we love in Irby's own sessions, there's a mix here of soulful and modern that's really wonderful – kind of an open flow on the horns, but this off-kilter edge, too – as if Kisor and Irby are carefully choosing never to get too sweet in their choice of notes, and doing a good job of avoiding cliches in the process. Other players include Peter Zak on piano, Carlos Henriquez on bass, and Ali Jackson on drums – and tracks are quite long and open – a really great setting for a group like this! Titles include "Con Alma", "Enigma", "Blues For Worm", and "Cool & Hot". CD

New Charles MingusModern Jazz Symposium Of Music & Poetry (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Bethlehem/Shout Factory, 1957. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic album – one of our favorite-ever records from Charles Mingus! The album was recorded in the same breath as his legendary works Tijuana Moods, The Clown, and Pithecanthropus Erectus – and it features the same sort of fire and emotion that made those classics so great. The group alone is amazing – with Horace Parlan on piano, Shafi Hadi on alto and tenor, Jimmy Knepper on trombone, and the amazing Clarence (aka Gene) Shaw on trumpet – all getting plenty of room to open up on the album's longer tracks! The work bristles with a sense of imagination and dark energy that Mingus hardly had in his music in later years – and each new tune brings a fresh sense of vision that never fails to astound us! In keeping with the "poetry" title, the album begins with an incredible 12 minute track "Scenes in the City" – which features a long spoken bit written by Langston Hughes about one man's love of jazz and the way that it affects his life in the city – all supported with excellent instrumentation from the group. Other titles are instrumental, and include "Nouroog", "New York Sketchbook", "Slippers", and "Duke's Choice". CD also features 3 bonus tracks – "Woody N You", "Billie's Bounce", and an alternate take of "Slippers". CD

New Art Farmer & Donald ByrdTwo Trumpets ... CD
Prestige (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two trumpets, and plenty of soul – one of those wonderful late 50s Prestige Records blowing sessions that really let individual players have lots of the right sort of space to find their own voice alongside each other! Byrd and Farmer are both young here, and mighty sharp in their sounds – already quite distinct from each other in phrasing, and a great choice as soloists to illuminate in a setting like this. The rest of the group features Jackie McLean on alto – getting in some great solos too – plus Barry Harris on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and the great Art Taylor on drums. Byrd's bite is a great counterpart to the lyricism of Farmer – and titles include "Contour", "Round Midnight", "The Third", and "Dig". CD

Spare solo work from Ralph Towner – performed on both classical and 12-string guitars, but in a style that's a bit different from his earliest material on ECM! Where Towner was once open and atmospheric, he's here almost more focused and careful with his choice of notes – echoing not just classical acoustic guitar styles, but also some global influences too – although still never as frenetic as you might hear from any Spanish or Brazilian artists on the instruments. Titles include "Carib Crib", "Toru", "Joyful Departure", "Tale Of Saverio", "The Reluctant Bride", and "Green & Golden". CD

A soaring set of solo piano from Weber Iago – music that bubbles and flows with a beautifully spontaneous quality – almost in the mode of a lost ECM session from the 70, but with all the warmth we've come to love from the Adventure Music label! The set may well be the best so far in the label's piano masters series – and presents Weber Iago at a level that's wonderfully compelling – spinning out these original tunes that are filled with deft changes and surprising angles, yet which always have a sense of soulful color and personal timing that really keeps things from getting overindulgent. Titles include "Stairway To Us", "It Dawned On Me", "Mirrors", "From I To Z", "Carmela", and "Happiness Is A Choice". CD

New Horace ParlanHappy Frame Of Mind (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Blue Note/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1963/1986. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Wicked work by pianist Horace Parlan – and one of his most stunning Blue Note sessions ever! The album was first recorded in 1963, but then kept on the shelf for years – seeing only brief release as part of a Booker Ervin package in the late 70s, and finally coming out with the proper cover and lineup at some point in the 80s! Why Blue Note waited so long is a mystery, because the album's a gem throughout – almost more important, and more starkly modern than any of Parlan's other work for the label. Booker Ervin leads the frontline on tenor, alongside Johnny Coles on trumpet, Grant Green on guitar, and the rhythm section of Butch Warren and Billy Higgins. Parlan's choice of material is fantastic – with a number of Africanist tracks that feature unique rhythmic patterns that really push the soloists! Titles include "A Tune For Richard", "Dexi", "Home Is Africa", "Kucheza Blues", and "Back From The Gig". LP, Vinyl record album

Kidd Jordan/Peter Kowald/Alvin FielderTrio & Duo In New Orleans ... CD
No Business (Lithuania), 2013. New Copy 2 CDs ... $24.99
A wonderful showcase for the soulful tenor talents of Kidd Jordan – a player with a style that takes us back to some of the richest, most expressive musicians of the loft jazz scene of the 70s! Jordan's got a way of spinning out a long, personal statement on his horn – one that's powerful and bold, and never resorts to cliche or any easy tricks – often just built strongly out of these very individualistic choices that almost have a poetic quality – although certainly of the proud and righteous mode! The first half of the set features a live performance with some wonderful bass work from Peter Kowald – a player whose low tones resonate in this very unusual way, and bring further depth to the record. Alvin Fielder plays both drums and percussion – and sparks off some strong energy at some points – even more so on the second half of the package, which just features duo tracks between Fielder and Jordan recorded in the studio. Live trio titles include six trio passages and both a solo drum and bass number – and duo titles include "Nameless Sound Duo", "Tempest Nola 2005", "Liftoff", and "Duo Flight". CD

New Lionel HamptonYou Better Know It !!! ... CD
Impulse/GRP, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A warm and wonderful 60s session from Lionel Hampton – recorded in a personal and intimate way, one that even surpasses his great small combo sides of the 50s! There's a relaxed feel here that you don't always get with Hamp – a gently grooving quality that we really like a lot, and which is traditional, but never too staid or too "easy" in its choices. The set benefits from some really strong horn work from Clark Terry on trumpet and Ben Webster on tenor – the latter of whom really crackles out with a great sound here. Other players include Milt Hinton on bass, Hank Jones on piano, and Osie Johnson on drums – and there's also a very slight bit of vocalizing on the record as well. Titles include "Tempo's Birthday", "Vibraphone Blues", "Trick Or Treat", "Cute", "Swingle Jingle", and "Taste Of Honey". CD

New Herbie HarperHerbie Harper ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most inventive albums we've ever heard from trombonist Herbie Harper – and that's saying a lot, given some of his other records! The group's an unusual one – with some key members that are likely – Jimmy Giuffre on tenor and baritone, Charlie Mariano on alto, and Jimmy Rowles on piano – mixed with other more compelling choices, such as Corky Hale on harp and Paul Sarmento on tuba – both instruments that really expand the sonic range of the session, in ways you might not expect to work this well! Harper was one of the more inventive leaders of the west coast scene at the time, and really does a great job of putting the whole thing together – managing both the unique group, and to find plenty of space for his own well-crafted solos too. Titles include "Topsy", "Angus", "Now You Know", "I'll Take Romance", and "Anything Goes". Nice goofy cover, with a picture of a dog, and the words "Please, no more shaggy dog stories! I'd rather listen to Herbie Harper!" CD

The pair come together in ways that are very fresh for a twin-sax session of this nature – more woven together in spirit, with less of a need to challenge each other – and really flowing with the solid groove of the rhythm section of Ethan Iverson on piano, Matt Penman on bass, and Jochen Rueckert on drums. The song choices are as vibrant as the players – and include versions of Chico Buarque's "Na Carreira", Elmo Hope's "De Dah", Eddie Harris' "1974 Blues", and The Beach Boys' "Till I Die". CD

Blue Note (Japan), 1967/1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of those rare treasures that was recorded by Blue Note in the 60s, but not issued at the time – a great late Hank Mobley set from 1967 that only saw the light of day in 1980! The album's got Hank really opening things up – using some of those more inventive rhythms and articulate phrasing that really graced his late years at Blue Note – a bold step forward, given his already-great run of material for the label! The core group is a quintet – with Lee Morgan on trumpet and Cedar Walton on piano – both of whom add to the lyrical edge of the playing – and most tracks feature additional work from James Spaulding on alto and flute, and the wonderful Sonny Greenwich on guitar – a player whose unique phrasing really helps shape the record's sound! Rhythms are from Walter Booker on bass and Billy Higgins on drums – again both great choices for the sometimes-modal qualities of the record – and titles include "Don't Cry Just Sigh", "Steppin Stone", "Third Season", "Boss Bossa", and "An Apertif". CD features one bonus track – an alternate of "Don't Cry Just Sigh". CD

New Gil MelleGil's Guests ... CD
Prestige (Japan), 1956/1957. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
We've got a long-standing love affair with the music of Gil Melle, and this CD's a perfect example of why we think he's so great! Melle was an enigmatic baritone player who recorded for Blue Note and Prestige in the 50's, and his recordings for both labels have a strange other-wordly quality that's very difficult to describe, and which sets him apart from any other practitioner of the instrument at the time. Far from the clunky sounds you might expect from such a giant instrument, Melle produces these amazingly light waves of sound, which are interpolated by the members of his quartet – guitarist Joe Cinderella, bassist Vinnie Burke, and drummer Ed Thigpen – in a tangled web of spooky delights. The group's augmented here by some famous guests that are perfect choices for Melle's sound – like Art Farmer, Hal McKusick, Julius Watkins, and Don Butterfield – and the CD's filled with great compositions like "Soudan", "Block Island", "Funk For Star People", "Herbie", "Tomorrow", and "Ghengis". Also includes 3 bonus tracks, for a total of 9 tracks in all! CD
