Raphe Malik QuartetCompanions ... CD
Eremite, 1998. Used ... $11.99
Trumpeter Raphe Malik's got some great companions on this set – a quartet that features Glenn Spearman on tenor sax, William Parker on bass, and Paul Murphy on drums – all musicians who can really step out and soar along with Malik's bold improvisations! The performance hits that perfect Eremite expression of older loft jazz modes that makes the label's work from this time so crucial – a set that shows a strong creative jazz fire still burning strongly in the northeast – recorded live in a very respectful way. Tracks are all long, with a great sense of freedom, but still a wonderful focus too – and titles include "Lyon's Jump", "Emblematic", "Bend", and "Health Food". CD

New William ParkerThrough Acceptance Of The Mystery Place (with bonus track) ... CD
Centering/Eremite, 1976/1981. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early genius from William Parker – a set of work inspired by the poems of Kenneth Patchen, and performed with a really vivid sound overall! The players here differ from track to track – and the album comes together almost like a sonic suite – echoing some themes very slightly, not in a musical way, but more of an emotive one – gently lyrical one minute, but more boldly expressive at another. Players include Billy Bang and Polly Bradfield on violin, Toshinori Kondo on alto horn, Jemeel Moondoc on alto sax, Arthur Williams on trumpet, John Hagen and Charles Brackeen on tenor, and Parker on bass. Titles include "Rattles & Bells & The Light Of The Sea", "Desert Flower", "Through Acceptance Of The Mystery Peace", and "Commitment". CD also features a bonus track recorded in 1976 – "Face Hands Still Folded", with Billy Bang and Ramsey Ameen on violin, and Parker performing a recitation. CD

New Peter Brotzmann/William Parker/Hamid DrakeNever Too Late But Always Too Early ... CD
Eremite, 2001. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Peter Brotzmann blows beautifully here – in a set that's dedicated to bassist Peter Kowald, and which features some especially great work from William Parker in the group! Brotzmann's got some soulful tones right at the start – almost an exotic quality in his reeds that spins out strongly with Parker's bass and the creative drum work of Hamid Drake – often with that bold focus that can make an Eremite date like this so great! The performance is fierce, but never in an unfocused way – and Drake is really wonderfully balanced between straighter swing and some of his freer explorations on the drum kit. Titles include "Never Run But Go", "The Heart & The Bones", "Halfhearted Beant", and "Never Too Late But Always Too Early". CD

New Jemeel Moondoc & The Jus Grew OrchestraSpirit House ... CD
Eremite, 2000. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A surprisingly bold large group session from Jemeel Moondoc – one that still has all the sense of soul of some of his smaller combo improvisations – but which also soars forth with a much richer vision as well! Improvisation is still at the core of the date, handled by some very strong players – but there's also a sense of arrangement that really pushes past the usual these platforms for ensemble expression which then lead to strongly individual passages – handled by players who include Zane Massey on tenor, Roy Campbell on trumpet, Tyrone Hill and Steve Swell on trombones, Bern Nix on guitar, and Lewis Barnes on trumpet. Moondoc conducts, and plays alto – and titles include "Quick Pick", "Brass Monkeys", "Flora", "End Game", and "Spirit House". CD

New Jemeel Moondoc, William Parker, Hamid DrakeNew World Pygmies Vol 2 ... CD
Eremite, 2000. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful follow-up to the incredible New World Pygmies set from saxophonist Jemeel Moondoc and bassist William Parker – one that not only features a double-length set of work, but also includes some guest drums from Hamid Drake on half the set! The core energy still really comes from the Moondoc/Parker pairing, though – a wonderful association that stands brilliantly here as some of the most soulful improvisation from the time – rich in spirit, strong in focus, and almost always swinging – with a balance between freedom and straightness that we really love. Tracks are all quite long – and CD one features a performance from Madison, while CD two features a Chicago set at the Velvet Lounge, with Drake on trap drums. Moondoc plays alto and soprano sax, and in addition to bass, Parker also plays bombard and gralle – on titles that include "Spirit House", "O'Neal's Porch", "New World Pygmies", "Blues For Katie", and "Three Clay Pots".

New Jemeel Moondoc/Denis CharlesWe Don't ... CD
Eremite, 1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Bold and brilliant duets from altoist Jemeel Moondoc and drummer Dennis Charles – the latter of whom is in tremendous form in this very free setting! There's a sense of soul and spirit that grabs us right from the start – these surprisingly deep notes from Moondoc, making us keep checking the notes to see if he's handling another horn besides alto sax – given a rumbling, brooding sensibility through Charles' work on drums – which never bombastically dominates, but always ruminates with a power that drives Jemeel on. Titles include "We Don't", "We Do", "Judy's Bounce", and "Home". CD

New Sunny MurrayPerles Noires Vol 1 ... CD
Eremite, 2005. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Magical work on drums from Sunny Murray – a later recording done with reedman Sabir Mateen – plus a few surprise guests on some of the tracks in the set! Murray's drums have all the power and presence we remember from years back – dimmed slightly with age, but given a lot more feeling too – matched nicely by Mateen's free lines on alto, tenor sax, and alto clarinet. Dave Burrell joins the pair on piano for four long, free numbers – and two more titles features Alan Silva on bass and Louis Belogenis on tenor. One remaining cut features just Murray and Mateen – and titles include "Fox Hunting In Manhattan (in 3 parts)", "Three Is A Crowd", "Top Dogs Boogie", "Trail Of Tears", and "Lonely Woman". CD

New Sunny MurrayPerles Noires Vol 2 ... CD
Eremite, 2005. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great follow-up to the first Perles Noires album – and like that one, a set that starts with some great duet energy between reedman Sabir Mateen and drummer Sunny Murray! Sunny's playing the drum kit wonderfully here – almost melodically, with his approach to different touches and tones on the skins – and Mateen's often more dramatic on his reed work, which includes alto, tenor, b-flat clarinet, and flute. Oluyemi Thomas plays added bass clarinet and c-melody sax on four numbers – and three more feature pianist John Blum. Things are relatively free throughout – more improvised than composed, with edges that hearken back to Murray's ESP years – and titles include "Changing Times 1 & 2", "No U-Turns Today", "Philly Sure Has Changed", "Nostalgia", and "Sundance At Night".

New Sunny Murray/Sabir MateenWe Are Not At The Opera ... CD
Eremite, 1998. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
You're definitely not at the opera with a set like this – a batch of well-crafted improvisations between drummer Sunny Murray and reedman Sabir Mateen – who plays alto, tenor sax, and flute throughout the course of the record! Like most of the best Eremite releases, this one is a live date – but has a sense of focus that's way more than just loose improvisation – a wonderful document of two very like-minded players, coming together with an openly creative vibe that recalls the soulfulness of the loft jazz generation. Titles include "Rejoicing New Dreams", "Clandestine Giant", "Too Many Drummers Not Enough Time", and "Musically Correct". CD
