New Eddie Henderson & Laurent DeWildeColors Of Manhattan ... CD
IDA (France), 1990. Used ... $9.99
Really lovely work from trumpeter Eddie Henderson – an excellent album that showcases his more lyrical side on a host of ballads and midtempo numbers! The group features pianist Laurent DeWilde providing nicely sensitive accompaniment – often using just the same sort of space in his construction of a tune as Henderson uses in his trumpet and flugelhorn – aided by gentle rhythms from Ira Coleman on bass and Lewis Nash on drums – the latter of whom really makes things swing when the album hits its few harder-edged tracks, both Wayne Shorter number – "El Gaucho" and "Armageddon" – quite different than the rest, but worth the price of the album alone! Other tracks include "Fleurette Africaine", "Goodbye", "Every Time We Say Goodbye", and "For All We Know". CD

New Eddie HendersonDark Shadows ... CD
Milestone, 1996. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Dark Shadows, but plenty of warm tones too – thanks to some great vibes from Joe Locke, whose work here is a wonderful accompaniment to the trumpet of Eddie Henderson! The album's got an easygoing vibe, but a deeply soulful feel – the kind of blocky, slow-building grooves that Henderson really picked up strongly in the later years of his career – handled with a new level of sensitivity, but also all the bold power of his earlier years. Other players are great too – Kevin Hayes on piano and Fender Rhodes, Lewis Nash on drums, and Ed Howard on bass – and Lee Menzies sings on the track "Dawning Dance", a great spiritual-styled number. Other cuts include "Goodbye", "19th Street", "El Gaucho", "A Certain Vibe", "Lament For Booker", "The Water Is Wide", and "Cerulean Blue". CD

New Eddie HendersonInspiration ... CD
Milestone, 1994. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderfully understated set from Eddie Henderson – one of those great little albums that really opens up the more we give it a listen – and a great reminder that Eddie's got so many gems nestled in his catalog, especially in later years like this! There's a mix of modes going on here – some ballad tracks that are almost Miles Davis-like, in that style that Henderson was moving towards during these years – but there's also some great numbers that get more modal and soulful, of the style of his Steeplechase recordings, with a warmly lyrical vibe. The group's a great part of the sound here – with Kevin Hays on piano, Joe Locke on vibes, Ed Howard on bass, and Lewis Nash on drums – and Grover Washington adds some great soprano sax on two numbers too. Titles include "Little B's Poem", "Peresina", "Jinriksha", "I Remember Clifford", "Phantoms", and "Oliloqui Valley". CD

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 ... $2.99
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

VariousElegant Funk – Mixed By DJ Muro ... CD
EMI (Japan), 1970s/Early 80s/2011. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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 Herbie HancockSextant ... CD
Columbia/Legacy, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 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 Jimmy SmithSoftly As A Summer Breeze ... CD
Blue Note, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Material recorded early in the Blue Note career of Jimmy Smith – but not issued until the mid 60s, and often overlooked at the time! The record's still in the spare trio mode of the early Jimmy Smith years – but is a bit lighter and more lyrical than before – a nice change from the harder tones of Jimmy's early trio records, and a hint and the expansive lines he'd take on later recordings! The lineup features mostly Kenny Burrell on guitar and Philly Joe Jones on drums – plus a few additional tracks that use Eddie McFadden on guitar and Donald Bailey on drums – and titles include "These Foolish Things", "Sometimes I'm Happy", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "One For Philly Joe", and a nice version of Monk's "Hackensack". CD features 4 bonus tracks – "Willow Weep For Me", "Ain't No Use", "Angel Eyes", and "Ain't That Love" – all with vocals by Bill Henderson! CD

New Grover Washington JrAll My Tomorrows ... CD
Columbia, 1994. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem from reedman Grover Washington – recorded in his later years, but a set that's actually got more of an acoustic style overall – one that goes back to the roots farther than any of Grover's fusion records! Washington's a great straight player in this setting – filled with soul on tenor and soprano sax – and working with top-shelf small group players like Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Hank Jones on piano, Bobby Watson on alto, and Robin Eubanks on trombone. Guitarist Romero Lumbambo arranged one great Brazilian-tinged number – and other arrangements are by Grover, Larry Willis, Slide Hampton, and Freddy Cole – who sings on two tracks too. Titles include "E Preciso Perdoar", "Happenstance", "All My Tomorrows", "Nature Boy", "Flamingo", and "Estate". CD

New Joe HendersonOur Thing (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
A classic straight session by Joe Henderson – cut during his early years, when he was breaking out of the box with a heck of a lot of fire! Kenny Dorham's subdued lyricism complements Joe's impassioned playing over the angular, yet still-swinging rythm section of Andrew Hill, Eddie Kahn and Pete La Roca. The track "Pedro's Time" reflects Joe's fascination with Latin-flavored pieces (as evidenced by Joe's previous effort Page One, and his work on Dorham's Una Mas), while pieces like "Teeter Totter", "Our Thing" and "Back Road" play with time and structure in subtle ways. CD includes a bonus alternate take of "Teeter Totter (alternate take)". 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

New Freddie HubbardRed Clay (with bonus track) ... CD
CTI/Epic, 1970. Used ... 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
