Erik TruffazDawn ... CD
Blue Note (France), 1998. Used ... $4.99
Excellent modern jazz funk from one of Europe's best young players! Erik Truffaz has a cool 70s spacey trumpet style – like Freddie Hubbard's best CTI work, or like the classic Eddie Henderson moments with the Herbie crew. He's playing here with a tight little quartet that includes Patrick Muller on piano and Fender Rhodes – and the overall sound is wonderfully bass heavy and mellow funky. Many of the tracks have a guest rapper named Nya – and he's not that bad, considering that we normally don't like European rappers, but we really still like the instrumental moments the best. Titles include "The Mask", "Bukowsky", "Wet In Paris", "Round Trip", "Yuri's Choice", and "Free Stylin". A great record to show the deep influence of 70s jazz funk on today's groove scene! CD

New Charles EarlandLeaving This Planet ... CD
Prestige, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums ever from organist Charles Earland – a double-length set that's filled with spiritual, soaring grooves! The style here is a perfect blend of the rougher soul jazz of Earland's roots with some of the spacier styles of his later recordings – served up in a sound that's majestic and powerful, almost with an indie soul jazz sort of vibe overall! There's an immediate urgency to most numbers that's totally undeniable – a lesson learned from the electric experiments of Herbie Hancock and Miles Davis, but fused down into a core essence – then let loose on a soaring journey to the heavens. Earland plays Hammond, moog, clavinet, and Arp on the set – and other players include Joe Henderson on tenor, Dave Hubbard on alto and soprano sax, Eddie Henderson and Freddie Hubbard on trumpets, Marc Elf on guitar, Harvey Mason on drums, and the incredible Patrick Gleeson on synthesizers – bringing in a spacey edge to the record that's really amazing! Rudy Copeland sings a wonderful vocal on the title cut, "Leaving This Planet" – and all other instrumental cuts include "Red Clay", "Warp Factor 9", "Tyner", "Van Jay", "Never Ending Melody", "Mason's Galaxy", and "Asteroid".

New DirectionsHave You Felt This Way Before ... CD
Diaspora (UK), 2004. Used ... Out Of Stock
Jazzy wonderfulness from Directions – an up-and-coming group from the Canadian scene, and a talented batch of folks who know how to perfectly blend the classic and the future! At one level, the album's got a style that's steeped in the 70s work of Herbie Hancock and Eddie Henderson – yet at another, it skips along with a soulful vocal approach that recalls some of our favorite work out of London in the past few years – but with a key difference in that the rhythms are more straight ahead, without as much "broken" bits underneath! The approach is great – really fluid and soulful, with a sound that should put these guys at the top of our list for a long time to come! Titles include "Busted Trees", "Lover Outta Town", "Have You Felt This Way Before", "Shameless", "Deep Talkin", "Terrified Star", and "Don't Hold Back". CD

New Billy HarperSoul Of An Angel ... CD
Metropolitan, 1999. Used ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic recent album by Billy Harper – with a sense of greatness, majesty, and spirituality to rival his best 70s work! The album's got Harper working in a very classic mode – with a soulful quartet that features his yearning searching tenor blowing out over backing by piano, bass, and drums. Eddie Henderson adds some trumpet on a few tracks – but the main action is up to Billy, who never falters in his creativity, and is as nimble as ever when it comes to working out his unique spiritual jazz vision. Titles include the sublime "Soul of An Angel", plus "Thine Is The Glory", "Credence", and "Was It Here . . . Is It There?". CD

New VariousBlue Note Revisited ... CD
Blue Note, 2004. Used ... Out Of Stock
A dream come true! Someone at Blue Note is keeping their eyes and ears on the street and in the clubs – because here's another late model conceptual triumph – a remix project pairing current innovators in the club and hip hop underground with classic numbers from the label's vaults! The concept is simple; classic numbers are given to handpicked remixers, re-doers, and stylistic misfits best suited to re-work that particular number. Mo Wax maestros La Funk Mob open the set with a mellow, club soul tweak of Wayne Shorter's "Oriental Funk Song". Kenny Dope trips out Bobby Hutcherson's "La Malanga" into a bubbly club funk jam. "Kyoto Jazz Massive" completely re-work Eddie Henderson's "Kudu" into a wonderful number all their own. Perhaps the biggest triumph of all here is the consistency throughout; every artist attached brings their A-game (how could they do any less, given a chance to add their own elements to the some of the most influential numbers they could get their hands on?) Amazing, amazing stuff – whether it's the scratched up, hip hop flavor J Dilla brings to Jack McDuff's "Oblighetto" or the righteous electronic groove Jazzanova drops on Eddie Gale's "Song Of The Will", the minimalist, keys and beats drive Osunlade brings into Grant Green's "A Time To Remember". Every track sparkles! Other tracks include DJ Spinna/Donald Byrd "Lansanna's Priestess", 4 Hero/Horace Silver "Won't You Open Up Your Senses", DJ Cam & Erik Truffaz/Donald Byrd "The Emperor", Herbert/Michel Petrucciani "Caravan" and more!

New Freddie HubbardRed Clay (with bonus track) ... CD
CTI/Epic, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing work from Freddie Hubbard – one of his best albums ever! The title cut's a classic, but all cuts on the album are great – and really set a whole new standard for soul jazz in the 70s! Unlike the freer runs of Miles Davis, Freddie takes things into territory here that's open, yet tightly controlled – a really soulful, spiritual vibe that's quite different than any of his later commercial work – or his hardbop of the decade before! The lineup includes Joe Henderson on tenor and Herbie Hancock on piano – and even back in the 80's, when everyone was going purist again, and was pretending they didn't like 70's electric jazz at all, they still claimed that this was a great jazz record, and one of the only good ones for CTI. We know better now, of course, and know that there were loads of great CTI sessions – but that doesn't stop this from being one of the best! Titles include "Red Clay", "Delphia", "Suite Sioux", and "The Intrepid Fox". This CD includes a bonus 18 minute live version of "Red Clay", too! CD

New Freddie HubbardStraight Life ... CD
CTI, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing second CTI set from Freddie Hubbard – one that takes off nicely from Red Clay territory, and starts to hit an even funkier mode! The tracks here are all relatively long, with a huge amount of solo space for Freddie on trumpet, Joe Henderson on tenor, George Benson on guitar, and Herbie Hancock on piano. The title track "Straight Life" has a style that's quite searing and righteous at points – almost some of Freddie's boldest playing on record from the time. It's followed by an excellent take on Weldon Irvine's "Mr Clean" – one that's rompingly funky while still as righteous as the work on side long title track – played with some great electric piano from Herbie and sweet guitar lines from Benson. The set closes with a mellow take on "Here's That Rainy Day", played in a way that reminds us of Hubbard's more lyrical style – but still with plenty of CTI 70s overtones. CD
(Please note that digipack is intact but is heavily worn & teeth inside case are missing.)
