New Herbie HancockSextant ... CD
Columbia/Legacy, 1973. Used ... $3.99
An incredible record – and virtually the blueprint for countless other keyboard records to come! At the height of his 70s powers, Herbie really takes off into space with this set – moving away from more commercial music, and hitting a groove that's totally righteous, totally electric, and completely mindblowing! The album's got a bit of a Headhunters vibe, but it also veers off into some very wild analogue electronics too – a mix of Fender Rhodes, clavinet, melotron, and echoplex processing – augmented by additional work on Arp from Patrick Gleeson. Other players on the set include Bennie Maupin on reeds, Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Julian Priester on trombone, Buster Williams on bass, and Billy Hart on drums – and the great Buck Clarke rounds out the combo on percussion. The album only features three long tracks – "Rain Dance", "Hidden Shadows", and "Hornets" – but all of them are killers! CD

New Billy HarperLive On Tour In The Far East Vol 2 ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1991. Used ... $16.99
Volume 2 in this great series of live work recorded by Harper in 1991 – a set of tracks performed in Taiwan, with a quintet that includes Eddie Henderson on trumpet! The feel here is similar to Harper's best late 70s work – with long tracks that open up in modal fashion, setting the stage for exploratory passages on the tenor – yet never going too far or too freakish to lose their soul. The blowing's in a perfect post-Coltrane mode, and the set features original Harper tunes that include "Destiny Is Yours", "Priestess", and "Trying To Make Heaven My Home". CD

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 VariousElegant Funk – Mixed By DJ Muro ... CD
EMI (Japan), 1970s/Early 80s/2011. Used ... $24.99
A fantastic mix of classic funky soul – from 70s dancefloor jazz funk on Blue Note, to group and solo soul efforts for other labels under the Capitol & EMI empire – mixed masterfully the DJ Muro on this excellent set from EMI Japan! It's a great batch of sophisticated, well produced jams geared for the dancefloor – be it Mizell-produced jazz funk, bouncy group soul, or early 80s grooves – numbers by Donald Byrd, Dayton, Rene & Angela, Melba Moore, Brass Construction, Pyrymyd, Perry & Sanlin, Tavares and more! It's a great continuous mix by Muro, who creates a pretty seamless flow of 25 tracks for 75 minutes of music: with "Wild Life" by Donald Byrd, "Keep On" by Tavares, "Say You Will" by Eddie Henderson, "Cutie Pie" by Dayton, "Breakdown" by Brass Construction, "We've Got Love Together" by Pyrymyd, "Keep Dancing" by Perry & Sanlin, "Rise" by Rene & Angela, "Feelin' Lucky Lately" by High Fashion and much more.

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 Pharoah SandersMoon Child ... CD
Timeless (Netherlands), 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful late 80s work from Pharoah – a wonderfully uncomplicated session that still has a great degree of soul! The album was recorded in Paris, with a quintet that includes William Henderson on acoustic piano, Stafford James on bass, Eddie Moore on drums, and Cheikh Tidiane Fale on percussion – and the overall approach is a bit more straight ahead than on some of Sanders' other albums – but in a really great way! The tunes are long and introspective – all done with spiritual rhythmic approaches, letting Pharoah open up on tenor and soprano sax – but never in a way that's overblown or overdone. The solos are perfectly placed – with wonderful phrasing and tone, rich in the colors that we've always loved on Sanders' work, but which can sometimes get lost in the confusion of an over-ambitious session. Titles include "Moon Child", "Moon Rays", "Soon", "Moniebah", and "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes". CD

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.)
