New ContinuumMad About Tadd ... CD
PAJ/Quicksilver, 1982. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of those records that really takes you by surprise – a set that doesn't look like much on the front, but which opens up immediately the minute you drop it on the turntable – with a sense of soul and swing that really hold on throughout! The group's a great one – a quintet with Jimmy Heath on tenor, Slide Hampton on trombone, Kenny Barron on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – all seasoned players working together here on a set of Tadd Dameron tunes, but inflected with a nice early 80s sense of soul – almost a more relaxed Muse Records vibe that really makes the album way more than just another reading of Dameron's classics. Titles include "Lady Bird", "Squirrel", "The Scene Is Clean", "Sid's Delight", and "Nearness". CD

New Jaco PastoriusModern American Music – Period – The Criteria Tapes (2014 Record Store Day Release) ... CD
Omnivore, 1974. New Copy .... $16.99
Some of the earliest work ever from Jaco Pastorius – rare demo recordings, issued in this format for the first time ever – filled to the brim with the kind of groundbreaking basswork that Jaco helped pioneer! Many tracks are relatively spare, and really give you a great chance to hear the special skills that Pastorius brought to his instrument – that level of soloing that was even more deft than most work on horns, and which pushed the instrument into really amazing territory. Other instrumentation includes Fender Rhodes, drums, steel drums, and some percussion from Don Alias – and titles include "Balloon Song", "Pans #1", "Kuru", "Havona/Continuum", "Time Lapse", and "Opus Pocus".

McCoy Tyner, Sonny Rollins, Ron Carter, & Al FosteMilestone Jazz Stars In Concert ... LP
Milestone, 1978. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold .... $6.99
A wonderful combination of players – really stretching out here in a hip double-length set! The live performance features three key musicians all recording for Milestone Records in the 70s – Sonny Rollins on tenor and soprano sax, McCoy Tyner on piano, and Ron Carter on bass – joined by drummer Al Foster, who provides some great energy to round out the quartet! But not all the tracks here are quartet ones, either – as the set also features some duet, trio, and solo moments too – really changing things up on some extended tracks that continue to keep things interesting! Titles include the excellent "Cutting Edge" – plus "Continuum", "Alone Together", "Nubia", "NO Blues", and "Don't Stop The Carnival". LP, Vinyl record album

Keith JarrettRestoration Ruin ... CD
Vortex (Japan), 1968. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
Very nice early work by Keith Jarrett – and very different than his later albums for ECM! This set is pretty loose and spiritual at times – and has Keith playing a variety of instruments, from piano, to guitar, to soprano sax, organ, and percussion – as well as singing, which he does in kind of a hip, bluesy, jazz-based style. The songs have actual lyrics, not scatting bits, and the feel here is almost folk rock inflected with jazz – which makes for a very interesting mix, and some really great songs that would appeal to those who like the left end of the folk/rock/jazz continuum of the late 60s. Includes the funky "All Right", plus "Restoration Ruin", "Have A Real Time", "Wonders", "You're Fortunate", and "Where Are You Going". CD

New Alwin NikolaisChoreosonic Music Of The New Dance Theatre Of Alwin Nikolais ... LP
Hanover/Cacophonic (UK), Late 50s. New Copy (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Here's some of the deep deep deepest roots of electronic dance music – sounds from a time when the use of new technologies was often a very abstract thing in a dance-based environment – usually served up without any sense of rhythm at all! Unlike edm of today, these analogue sounds are almost acoustic, and have a very personal, poetic feel – sometimes sounds with a naive impulse that almost recalls 50s records by Moondog, other times even spacier – at a level that must have left the dancers lots of space to do their own thing alongside the music. There's a really strong sense of space on the record – and the music is somewhere in a continuum between similar vintage recordings by Harry Partch and Pierre Henry. Titles include "Lyre", "Shivaree", "Illusional Frieze", "Eruptions & Evolvements", and "Fetish". LP, Vinyl record album

New Jaco PastoriusJaco Pastorius ... CD
Epic, 1976. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This is the one that really nailed it for Jaco Pastorious – a brilliant showcase for all his many talents on the bass, and a key illustration of the way that he influenced an entire generation! Sure, Jaco in Weather Report was already pretty darn great – but here, on his own, he really gets to sparkle – jamming hard with heavyweights on some funky numbers, sliding out in spacey territory on mellow cuts, and even trying out a few more experimental moments that are far beyond what most other bassists might imagine for a debut of this nature. Players on the date include Herbie Hancock on keyboards, Don Alias on percussion, Lenny White on drums, Hubert Laws on flute, and Randy Brecker on trumpet – and titles include "Portrait Of Tracy", "Donna Lee", "Continuum", "Okonkole Y Trompa", "Kuru/Speak Like a Child", "Opus Pocus", and "Come On Come Over".

New Jaco PastoriusTwins I – Aurex Jazz Festival 1982 ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1982. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Jaco Pastorius at the height of his powers – working here on a set of smoking live recordings that feature both the Word Of Mouth Sextet, and a larger big band! The core combo features Pastorius on some really incredible bass – that re-worked approach to the electric instrument in jazz that went onto inform many generations of players – matched with the core energy of Randy Brecker on trumpet, Bob Mintzer on tenor and soprano sax, Peter Erskine on drums, Don Alias on percussion, and the surprising addition of Othello Moineaux on steel drums – which makes for some very interesting moments. Toots Theielmans joins the sextet at one point – and the larger group features Jon Faddis on trumpet, Wayne Andre on trombone, and Mari Cruz on tenor and soprano sax. Titles include "Continuum", "Liberty City", and "Three Views Of A Secret" plus "Sophisticated Lady", "Invitation", and "Soul Intro/The Chicken". CD
