Eric AlexanderBlues At Midnight ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2013. New Copy ... $32.99
Massive work from tenorist Eric Alexander – a player who never lets us down, and who always manages to sound extra great on expensive Japanese-only sessions like this! The album's got a clear, simple focus that really sums up the classic tone and timing that Alexander brings to his tenor – a style that has him handling the horn at a level that's certainly timeless, but instantly fresh too – that crisp sense of creativity you get when hearing a rare top-shelf jazzman at his best! Of course, the rhythm section does plenty to help Eric find the right space – the perfect trio of Harold Mabern on piano, Nat Reeves on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums – all recorded in a way so that the tones of the tunes are incredibly deep and richly soulful. Titles include "Is It You", "Sayonara Blues", "Hittin The Jug", "Dis Here", "Edward Lee", and "Dance With Me". CD

Ron Carter with Eric Dolphy & Mal WaldronWhere? ... CD
New Jazz/OJC, 1961. Used ... $5.99
A haunting and unusual batch of tracks from bassist Ron Carter – working here with a group that includes spiritual modernists Eric Dolphy on reeds and Mal Waldron on piano – both players who really add a lot to the set! In a way, the album's more like Dolphy's own work as a leader from the time than the sort of music usually associated with Carter – and Ron really seems to let the reedman shape the overall sound of the set with his tremendous work on alto, flute, and bass clarinet. Carter plays a bit of cello in addition to his bass – giving the record a nicely eerie sound at points – and Waldron's piano, as always, is excellent during this point in his career. Titles include Randy Weston's "Where" and "Saucer Eyes", plus "Bass Duet", which features Carter dueting with George Duvivier, and a very nice version of "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise". CD

Eric DolphyEric Dolphy At The Five Spot Vol 1 ... LP
Prestige/OJC, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 17.99
Searing live work from Eric Dolphy – part of a series of recordings that set a whole new standard for live jazz recording! The record features Dolphy going even farther out than on his studio sides from the time – as the record features very long tracks performed by a crack group that includes Booker Little on trumpet, Mal Waldron on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Ed Blackwell on drums. Despite the length of the tracks, Dolphy isn't as far out as on later European live recordings – but the performance is a great example of his inventiveness within a mainstream structure, and the modernist tendencies of both Waldron and Little shine very brightly in the set. The concert was one of Little's last (and greatest) recordings – sometimes billed as a "memorial", even though he was still alive when it was done – and titles on this volume include "Fire Waltz", "Bee Vamp", and "The Prophet".

Eric DolphyLast Recordings ... LP
West Wind (Germany), 1964. New Copy Gatefold ... $26.99 29.99
A gem of a record – Eric Dolphy's last studio session, recorded in Paris with some very surprising guest stars! The work is really tremendous – every bit as great as Dolphy's monumental studio albums for Prestige, and written and performed with a similar blend of the free, the lyrical, the avant, and the soulful – a groove that's often a bit more inside than some of Eric's other late recordings – and played with plenty of spirit throughout! The sessions make great use of American soloists Donald Byrd on trumpet and Nathan Davis on tenor – both players whose sound really balances Dolphy in a great way – holding down a groove while Eric takes off on alto sax or bass clarinet. The rhythm is by a French combo – with Jack Dieval on piano, Jacques Hess on bass, and Franco Monzecci on drums – plus a bit of congas on two tracks from Jacky Bambou. Titles are quite long, and really wonderful – and tunes include "245", "GW", "Serene", and "Springtime". LP, Vinyl record album

Eric B & RakimLet The Rhythm Hit Em ... CD
MCA, 1990. Used ... $4.99
The third album from Eric B & Rakim – classic MC/DJ duo hip hop from classic players! By this point, Rakim was firmly established as one of hip hop's greatest rhymers, and is a fine full length effort that's biggest fault is that it's not quite as spectacular as the first 2 LPs. Ultimately, how could it be? Don't Sweat The Technique might be the better of the duo's last couple of album's, but this one's got a bunch of classic, with titles including "Let The Rhythm Hit Em", "Mahogany", "No Omega", "Keep Em Eager To Listen" and "In the Ghetto".

Eric GaleForecast ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the most successful albums ever from guitarist Eric Gale – a laidback understated player whose mellow sound had a tremendous influence on mainstream jazz funk in the 70s! The album takes off from the late 60s CTI and Verve sessions by Wes Montgomery – and features Gale riffing out chromatically over tightly woven arrangements by Bob James, who also plays keyboards on the set. There's no standout funky numbers on the record, but it's got a great conception overall – with lots of dreamy grooves that sound very nice! Titles include "Forecast", "Tonsue Corte", "White Moth", "Cleopatra", and "Dindi". CD

Eric GaleGinseng Woman/Multiplication ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $18.99
A pair of 70s guitar classics from Eric Gale – back to back on a single CD! Ginseng Woman is a wonderfully strong effort from Gale – a player who'd done countless studio work on fusion sessions in the 70s, but who never really broke that strongly as a leader until this set! Gale's tone here is nicely compressed, but still has a warmth that comes from his use of a hollow-body – smooth enough to slide alongside the electric Bob James production, but with enough humanity to allow Gale's spirit to shine through nicely. Richard Tee plays organ on the set, some tracks have backing vocals, and the overall sound is sort of post-CTI, or Kudu-esque. Titles include "Red Ground", "Ginseng Woman", "Derabbit", "East End, West End", and "Sara Smile". Multiplication is a great late 70s fusion set from guitarist Gale working here with his CTI labelmate Bob James. In fact, except for the absence of Creed Taylor, this set is in many ways like a CTI session, with sidemen that include James, Steve Gadd and Anthony Jackson – and a full string and brass section, plus other players who you might not associate with that label, like Richard Tee, Alphonso Johnson and Ralph Macdonald. The groove is slightly mellow at times, almost like James' own work from the period – but which also shows a bit of a tight funk approach on the best cuts too. Titles include "Gypsy Jello", "Morning Glory", "Oh Mary Don't You Weep", "Thumper", and "Multiplication". CD

Eric KlossGrits & Gravy ... LP
Prestige, 1967. Very Good ... $12.99
Totally great work from a young Eric Kloss – grits, gravy, and a whole lot more! About half the record has Kloss blowing with a quartet that includes Jaki Byard on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Alan Dawson on drums – going for a style that's more towards the soulful end of Byard's modern approach – and featuring some incredibly well-crafted alto solos for his young age. The other half of the album features a strange but cool larger group – one with Teddy Charles on vibes, Billy Butler on guitar, and even some female backing vocals! The approach on these sides is like that on some of the George Braith and Freddie McCoy sides for Prestige – a great blend of groovy and funky, with a soulful undercurrent that's really sent home by Kloss' solos! A stunning album with a really unique blend of sounds – and titles that include "Repeat", "Grits & Gravy", "Gentle One", "Slow Hot Wind", and "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Line Production (France), 1989. Used ... $9.99
A late 80s fusion effort from trumpeter Eric LeLann – one that has him working in a combo with sharp guitars from Mike Stern and Louis Winsberg! The style here is a bit like some of Stern's best work – rhythmic one minute, but also with a pause for tone and color – and although the guitar stylings are a bit dated at times, LeLann's trumpet helps give the record a focus and edge that keeps things moving nicely. Other players include Eddie Gomez on bass, Paco Sery on drums, and Mino Cinelu on percussion – and titles include "Viva", "Sans Lendemain", "TGV", "Sandra", "14 Rue Hegesippe Moreau", and "Stomelen In Blue".

New John Mayall's Blues BreakersBlues Breakers With Eric Clapton ... CD
Deram/Polygram, 1966. Used ... $1.99
Possibly one of the best-remembered albums by John Mayall's legendary Blues Breakers combo – thanks to vocals and guitar from a young Eric Clapton! Clapton at this point is way fresher than in later years – not prone to cliches, and still coming across with a raw, edgey power that is drenched in American blues tradition. Mayall's great too – wailing on harmonica, organ, and piano – and other members of the core group include John McVie on bass and Hughie Flint on drums – augmented by contributions from UK jazzers John Almond on baritone sax and Alan Skidmore on tenor. Titles include "All Your Love", "Little Girl", "Key To Love", "Parchman Farm", "Have You Heard", "It Ain't Right", and "Steppin Out". CD

Bill Medley/Eric Burdon/Mike Curb/David LucasMagic Garden Of Stanley Sweetheart ... LP
MGM, Early 70s. Very Good ... $3.99
A weird assortment of tunes from a variety of artists – designed to accompany what looks like a pretty stoned-out film! Most tracks on here are rock or vocal numbers, a variety of covers and originals that include "Nobody Knows" by Bill Medley, "Magic Mountain" by Eric Burdon & War, "Water" by Michael Greer, "Funny How It Happens" by Stilroc, "Sound Of Love" by Angeline Butler, and "Sweet Gingerbread Man" and "Happy Together" by The Mike Curb Congregation. Those are all fine, but the really wonderful track on the record is "Blood" by David Lucas – a very trippy instrumental that begins tight and funky, with lots of bass/drum/guitar grooving, plus nice use of vibes, and which then goes really over the top near the end and gets way fuzzed out and messed up!

Merc & Monk (Eric Mercury & Thelonious Monk III)Merc & Monk ... LP
Manhattan, 1985. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Eric Mercury joins up with Thelonious Monk III – and the result is a batch of tightly-snapping 80s soul tunes that are heavy on the keyboards! Mercury sings lead vocals, as does Monk – but Theo also supplies all of the musical backings for the set, penned and programmed on a host of keyboards and drum machines! The sound's relatively electric, but the vocals are still nicely upfront and honest – thanks mostly to Mercury's presence on the record. There's a bit of flash on the weaker moments, but the better points are more straight ahead in an 80s groove mode – and titles include "Pretty Little Girl Of Mine", "What's Your Name", "We Can Make It", "The Thing That Looks The Best On You", "Carried Away", "Baby Face", and "Thelonii".

New Charles Mingus with Eric DolphyCornell 1964 ... CD
Blue Note, 1964. Used 2CD ... $13.99
A real musical discovery – not just for the fact that the CD represents a previously-unreleased concert by Charlies Mingus – but also because the sounds and styles here offer up a version of Mingus that's almost more adventurous than some of his other albums of the time! The sextet features some key work by Eric Dolphy on alto sax, flute, and bass clarinet – but all other players are wonderful too, and include Johnny Coles on trumpet, Clifford Jordan on tenor, Jaki Byard on piano, and Dannie Richmond on bass – all coming together with a sense of power and presence that matches that of a group double their size! The long tracks on the set allow plenty of space for individual expression – some stretched-out solos that really push the limits of the music, sometimes going farther outside than we might expect – almost in the manner of some of Coltrane's important live dates of the same year. Titles include "ATFW You", "Fables Of Faubus", "Take The A Train", "Orange Was The Color Of Her Dress", "Meditations", "So Long Eric", "Jitterbug Waltz", and "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling". CD

High Note/Savant, 2014. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Pianist Eric Reed is no stranger to the music of Thelonious Monk, but this set seems to have a special crackle that really makes it live up to its "adventurous" title! The tunes are all Monk numbers, but all seem to have some even sharper edges than usual – thanks in part to drummer Gregory Hutchinson, who really bristles at the kit, and puts all these fierce moments in the background of the tunes – little punches and harder taps that really work nicely alongside Reed's piano. Seamus Blake blows some nice deep tones on tenor, too – a voice that furthers the bold spirit of the record – and the group also features Ben Williams on bass. Titles include "Work", "Reflections", "Evidence", "Balue Bolivar Blues Are", "Gallop's Gallop", and "Nutty" – plus a vocal version of "Ruby My Dear", which features singer "Charenee Wade". CD

Eric Reed's no stranger to the music of Thelonious Monk, but this time around he's got a great approach – a fresh take on these modern classics, served up in soulful ways that definitely fit the "baddest" spirit of the title! There's even more of a rhythmic focus here than in the original compositions – served up with heavy drums from Henry Cole and bass from Matt Clohesy – and topped with bold leads from Seamus Blake on tenor and Etienne Charles on trumpet – both of whom further emphasize the soulfulness of Reed's arrangements. Jose James sings on a version of "Round Midnight" – and other instrumental tunes include "Epistrophy", "Green Chimneys", "Bright Mississippi", "Monk Beurre Rouge", and "Evidence" – as well as Reed's own "The Baddest Monk".

Very early electronic sound library material from Eric Siday – so much so, that all these tracks were originally issued as 78rpm singles – at a time before the sound library scene moved into using full LPs!

A sunny 70s set from Erik Tagg – a record that's halfway between blue-eyed soul and the warmer territory of singers like Kenny Rankin or Michael Franks! Like both of those artists, Erik Tagg's certainly got something of an ear for jazz, and chooses some great elements in the backdrops for his vocals – a style that's smooth, but never too slick – and definitely in the more personal, more individual side of 70s AOR. The tunes are warm, but never overwhelmingly so – and Tagg's vocals are produced in this cool way that compresses them sweetly alongside the instrumentation. Titles include "Tell Tale Eyes", "Love To Love You", "In December's Cold", "A Fantasy", "After All", "Steamboat", "Sandman", and "Never Had The Feelin". CD

Eric DolphyOutward Bound (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
New Jazz, 1960. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Eric Dolphy's first album ever as a leader – recorded almost immediately after his arrival on the New York scene! The sound here is already bolder and stronger than the Dolphy experiments on the west coast – sharp-edged and freely exploratory, in a way that pushes the playful lyricism of the Chico Hamilton years aside, and reaches out into the new territory hinted at by the title! The group is a quintet that features Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Jaki Byard on piano, George Tucker on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums – and the overall sound is a beautiful mix of modernist hard bop and some of Dolphy's later freer styles. Dolphy plays his usual mix of alto, flute, and bass clarinet – and the tracks include "245", "Miss Toni", "Les", and "GW". CD features 3 bonus tracks – "April Fool", "GW (alt take 1)", and "245 (alt take 1)". CD

High Note, 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not the soundtrack to the popular TV drama of the same name – but a set that returns tenorist Eric Alexander to all the fire he brought to his early years on the Chicago scene! Alexander's set up here with a key range of players from this years – longtime associates Harold Mabern on piano, John Webber on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums – all rhythmic giants who push Eric back into the kind of old school territory that made him an instant heir to the Chicago legacy of tenor giants like Johnny Griffin, Eddie Harris, and Von Freeman! Trumpeter Jeremy Pelt joins the group on a few tracks – adding in these soaring lines on trumpet that really sparkle – but we honestly like the quartet numbers the best, as they have Alexander opening up in some nicely unbridled territory. Titles include "Mr Stitt", "Bluesky For Vonski", "Just One Of Those Things", "Eddie Harris", "Bee Hive", and "You Talk That Talk". CD

Douglas/Celluloid, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A seminal set from Eric Dolphy – one of his most perfectly realized moments at the head of a larger ensemble – and a record that definitely set the tone for countless spiritual jazz sessions of the 70s! Dolphy recorded this session for Alan Douglas in 1962, and it features a larger array of players than you'll find on most of his records for other labels – the cream of the "new thing" players that were around New York at the time, including Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Woody Shaw on trumpet, Prince Lasha on flute, Sonny Simmons on alto, and even Clifford Jordan on soprano sax – making a rare appearance on record on that instrument! Together, the players create a set of soundscapes that lies somewhere between Dolphy's Out To Lunch album, and some of the more modernist work by Mingus – a stunning batch of tracks that go out, but never too far. Titles include "Ode to CP", "Burning Spear", "Iron Man", and "Mandrake". LP, Vinyl record album

Eric Dolphy's second album as a leader – and already a bold step forward from the first! The format here changes from the more standard lineup of before – as Dolphy drops out other horn players, loses the piano, and brings the cello of Ron Carter into the frontline! Backing is by the bass of George Duvivier and the drums of Roy Haynes – and the mix of cello and bass creates the freely spirited sound that allows Dolphy to take off on even freer solo flights. The session has a very moody, very dark feel – especially on the tracks where Dolphy is playing B flat and bass clarinet – and titles include "The Baron", "Eclipse", "Sketch Of Melba", "Feathers", and "17 West".

New Eric DolphyOut To Lunch ... CD
Blue Note, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Eric Dolphy's lasting classics – and possibly the ultimate album of "new thing" jazz from the mid 60s! The record's got an even sharper edge than previous Dolphy recordings for Prestige – a really unique combination of instrumentation that includes Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Richard Davis on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – plus Dolphy on alto sax, flute, and bass clarinet. Although Dolphy's reed playing is as amazing as you'd expect, the real surprise here is Hutcherson, whose vibes ring out with this cold harsh tone that give a perfect edge to the set – bold and metallic, quite different than any work on vibes from previous players. Despite a large number of later recordings, Hutcherson almost never hit this sound again – except perhaps on a few Jackie McLean recordings – and it's his playing that gives the set such a unique sound. Titles include "Straight Up & Down", "Gazzelloni", "Hat & Bread", "Out To Lunch" and "Something Sweet Something Tender". CD

Kloss was totally tight at this point, and less given to the sort of sloppy experimentation that weakened him later. He's backed by two great tight organ jazz groups, and the feel is nice and loungey, but with a good modern edge. Tracks include "Gemini", "Just for Fun-k", and a great version of "Love for Sale".

Incredibly strong work from the Tarbaby trio – a group that features Orrin Evans on piano, but which gets really equal strength from the bass of Eric Revis and drums of Nasheet Waits! In fact, those two latter players often take center stage instead of the piano – each with compositions that really showcase their styles, and some breakout solo moments that really definite their presence wonderfully! The set also features Oliver Lake on alto and Marc Ducret on guitars – both players who are freely creative with the trio, but who almost come across best at those moments when they're shading in the sound instead of stepping forth in the spotlight. Titles include "Small Pieces Tiny Pieces", "Fanon", "Black Skin White Mask", "Is it Real", "Liberation Blues", "FLN Stomp", and "One Destiny". CD

New Eric RevisIn Memory Of Things Yet Seen ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really beautiful work from bassist Eric Revis – an album of subtle soul and really deep feelings – with a quality that's much more classic than some of the more contemporary material that we usually hear from the Clean Feed label – almost in an older avant space with echoes of Ornette Coleman, or some of the Soul Note/Black Saint recordings of the members of the 70s loft jazz scene. The group here is really strongly balanced – rich horn lines from Bill McHenry on tenor and Darius Jones on alto – mixed with Revis ruminating work on bass, and some sublime drumming from Chad Taylor – a player we really love, but who seems to shine even more here than usual. Branford Marsalis makes a surprising guest appearance on two tracks – and titles include "Hits", "Unknown", "Somethin's Cookin", "If You're Lonesome Then You're Not Alone", and the multi-part "Tulpa Chronicles".

If this is an appetizer, we can't wait until the full meal! Eric Roberson initially put this set together to whet people's appetite for his next album – which is still a long way off – but in doing so, he realized that he had way more tracks than he thought for the original EP, and he decided to release the set as a full album by itself! The set sports 10 tracks in all – and like Roberson's work on the excellent Vault albums, there's a personal, heartfelt style here that blows away most other male soul singers working today. Each tune is accompanied by some great notes by Eric that let you really get inside his head – and which show why he's one of the hippest, smartest singers working today. Titles include "What I Gotta Do", "Painkiller", "Hesitation", "Momma Told Me", "The Moon", "We Can't Pretend", "For Da Love Of Da Game", and "Just A Dream". CD

Prestige/OJC, 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
Searing live work from Eric Dolphy – part of a series of recordings that set a whole new standard for live jazz recording! The record features Dolphy going even farther out than on his studio sides from the time – as the record features very long tracks performed by a crack group that includes Booker Little on trumpet, Mal Waldron on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Ed Blackwell on drums. Despite the length of the tracks, Dolphy isn't as far out as on later European live recordings – but the performance is a great example of his inventiveness within a mainstream structure, and the modernist tendencies of both Waldron and Little shine very brightly in the set. The concert was one of Little's last (and greatest) recordings – sometimes billed as a "memorial", even though he was still alive when it was done – and titles on this volume include "Fire Waltz", "Bee Vamp", and "The Prophet".

Other players include Jaki Byard on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums – a rhythm team whose abilities are a big part of the success of the record – and titles include "Far Cry", "Mrs Parker Of KC", "Left Alone", "Ode To Charlie Parker", and "Miss Ann".

The bulk of the CD features reedman Eric Kloss on alto sax – working only with the acoustic piano of Gil Goldstein for accompaniment – in a stretched-out style that's totally great – as spare and fluid as some of Kloss' best material from the early 70s, blown with a really great amount of sensitivity and soul. Titles on these numbers include "Sweet Connections", "Sands Of Time", "Irish Fantasy", "Wrapped In A Cloud", and "Places In My Past". Three remaining numbers feature a quartet – one with Kloss on alto and tenor, Goldstein on piano, Steve Tisher on bass, and Terry Silverlight on drums – still working with plenty of focus on Kloss' solos, on titles that include "Gil's Tune", "The Seasons", and "Days Of Wine & Roses".

A heavily reworked version of Eric Roberson's massive Vault album – one of our favorite new soul releases of the past few years! This version shares a cover and title with the first version, but overall, it's practically a whole new record – with 8 songs out of 12 that are completely new, leaving only 4 tracks from Vault 1 still remaining – and Eric changed the order of tunes around, cleaned things up, and really came up with an album that he feels best represents his talents. The whole thing's incredible – amazingly even better than the first, and one of the best male soul albums you could hope to find – in this year, or any other! Eric's sound is instantly classic – smooth and mellow, yet never wimpy – put together with a production style that's got the economy and simple elegance of the best work by Stevie Wonder or Leroy Hutson! Titles include "Right Back To You", "Lil Money", "Def Ears", "Obstacles", "Find The Way", "Rock With You", "Change For Me", "I Have A Song", and "She Ought To Know", which features guest vocals by Marsha from Floetry!

Instant genius from the mighty Eric Roberson – easily one of the greatest soul singers we've ever heard – and that's saying a lot, given how many records we've listened to over the years! Eric's one of the few artists who can bring a smile to our face from the very first note of a new album – and this set's got us smiling all the way through – sharing Eric's tremendous sense of joy and love in his music, and further marveling at his growing talent as a songwriting over the years. Roberson's voice is enough to make a tune great – but his lyrics here are especially great, personal themes and topics that come off with a real sense of poetry that few other singers can match. Eric's way ahead of the pack here – setting a new standard for the male voice in soul music, yet also firmly placing himself amidst a strong lineage from the classic years. Why this guy isn't a superstar is beyond us – but honestly, we're loving him at this level – because it means that Eric is as upfront and close as his music! Titles include "Music", "Evening", "Been In Love", "Iluvu2much", "Only For You", "Too Soon", "Pretty Girl", "If I Had A Chance", and "The Baby Song". CD

New Jazz/OJC, 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
Pivotal work from Waldron – stepping out of the blowing session mode, emerging as one of the 60s most striking moderinists. Like a lot of Waldron's records from the time, this set shows an amazing desire for new forms and modern ideas, and the mix of players – Eric Dolphy, Booker Ervin, Ron Carter, Joe Benjamin, and Charlie Persip – pulls the material in a number of different ways. Carter plays bowed cello, as he did on Dolphy's Out There session, and he gives the set a dark moody feel. Ervin's in his best modernist mode, and he ably trades lines with Dolphy and keeps the whole thing moving nicely. Waldron's writing and arranging is superb, and the tracks feature a lot of weird time structures and unusual modal patterns. Includes the tracks "Status Seeking", "Warm Canto", "Warp and Woof", and "Fire Waltz". CD

A haunting and unusual batch of tracks from bassist Ron Carter – working here with a group that includes spiritual modernists Eric Dolphy on reeds and Mal Waldron on piano – both players who really add a lot to the set! In a way, the album's more like Dolphy's own work as a leader from the time than the sort of music usually associated with Carter – and Ron really seems to let the reedman shape the overall sound of the set with his tremendous work on alto, flute, and bass clarinet. Carter plays a bit of cello in addition to his bass – giving the record a nicely eerie sound at points – and Waldron's piano, as always, is excellent during this point in his career. Titles include Randy Weston's "Where" and "Saucer Eyes", plus "Bass Duet", which features Carter dueting with George Duvivier, and a very nice version of "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise". CD

Prestige, 1966/1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
2 excellent early albums from overlooked saxophone genius Eric Kloss! Grits & Gravy is a really incredible little set – with a varied approach that we love! About half the record has Kloss blowing with a quartet that includes Jaki Byard on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Alan Dawson on drums – going for a style that's more towards the soulful end of Byard's modern approach – and featuring some incredibly well-crafted alto solos for his young age. The other half of the album features a strange but cool larger group – one with Teddy Charles on vibes, Billy Butler on guitar, and even some female backing vocals! The approach on these sides is like that on some of the George Braith and Freddie McCoy sides for Prestige – a great blend of groovy and funky, with a soulful undercurrent that's really sent home by Kloss' solos! A stunning album with a really unique blend of sounds – and titles that include "Repeat", "Grits & Gravy", "Gentle One", "Slow Hot Wind", and "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise". First Class Kloss catches the young saxophone genius at a perfect point in his career, right when he was stretching out from the organ jazz roots of his first few records, but in a way that's not as noodly as in some of his later recordings. The group's incredibly hip – with Jimmy Owens, Cedar Walton, Leroy Vinnegar, and Alan Dawson – and the record bounces with that soulful pre-funk mode that crept into only the best of the Prestige sides of the late 60s. Titles include "African Cookbook", "Chittlins Con Carne", "Comin Home Baby", and "The Chasin Game". 16 tracks in all, including one previously unissued track – "Psychedelicatessen Rag". CD

A range of special projects, guest appearances, and b-sides from Eric Roberson – and music that's mostly still better than the top-shelf recordings from most other artists! Eric's a singer we've loved for years, no matter what the setting – and he's got a richly collaborative spirit that's had him working with lots of the best of the underground for the past decade or so – lending his sublime vocals, songwriting skills, and even production talents to a range of really wonderful projects.

West Wind (Germany), 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A gem of a record – Eric Dolphy's last studio session, recorded in Paris with some very surprising guest stars! The work is really tremendous – every bit as great as Dolphy's monumental studio albums for Prestige, and written and performed with a similar blend of the free, the lyrical, the avant, and the soulful – a groove that's often a bit more inside than some of Eric's other late recordings – and played with plenty of spirit throughout! The sessions make great use of American soloists Donald Byrd on trumpet and Nathan Davis on tenor – both players whose sound really balances Dolphy in a great way – holding down a groove while Eric takes off on alto sax or bass clarinet. The rhythm is by a French combo – with Jack Dieval on piano, Jacques Hess on bass, and Franco Monzecci on drums – plus a bit of congas on two tracks from Jacky Bambou. Titles are quite long, and really wonderful – and tunes include "245", "GW", "Serene", and "Springtime". CD

One of the few albums ever cut by this incredible tenor sax player – a wonderful talent that we only know from a handful of records – all of which we love! This date's got a bold sound that very much lives up to its cover, and Alexander's placement on Prestige's New Jazz label – a vibrant sound that's got elements of the 60s underground of Eric Dolphy or Ken McIntyre, but which also has a more flowing, soulful vibe as well – almost a precursor to later spiritual jazz elements of the 70s. No surprise, the great Marcus Belgrave is in the quintet on trumpet – as is Ronnie Mathews on piano, with rhythm support from Gene Taylor on bass and Clarence Stroman on drums.

The set features a number of 60s standards, plus a few older tunes – all performed in a warm, buoyant tone that was every bit the best side of the Basie group in that decade. Players include Eric Dixon, Al Aarons, Al Grey, and Eddie Lockjaw Davis – all bursting out of the group with tight short solos that really get the point across! Titles include "I'll Get By", "Watermelon Man", "Exodus", "I'm Walkin", and "Volare". LP, Vinyl record album

BenetBenet (with bonus track) ... CD
EMI/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1992. New Copy ... $13.99
A pretty sweet batch of early 90s R&B from Benet – which is the brother and sister duo of Eric and Lisa Benet – a couple years before Eric would conquer the charts as a solo act! It's a nice little record that's warm and good-natured, and produced with a bright and smooth, but not overly slick vibe. Musicians include Jeff Lorber, Freddie Hubbard, Paul Jackson Jr, Dave Koz and other major players – so you know the sessions are legit – and the family vocal chemistry is pretty sweet. Titles include a modern R&B take on "Rainy Days And Sundays", plus "Only Want To Be With You", "I Remember When", "Never Get Enough", He Said, She Said", "In The Spring", "'Til We Meet Again" and more. Also includes a bonus instrumental version of "Only Want To Be With You". CD

New Blood Sweat & TearsBlood Sweat & Tears ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $2.99
A stone classic from Blood Sweat & Tears – and a record that went onto have a tremendous impact in jazz, rock, funk, and soul! The group's format is plenty darn famous – adding a lot of horns to hip riffing grooves – but despite countless plays on oldies stations over the years, this initial album still has a power that's undeniable – a way of putting the whole thing together that really uses the best elements of the late 60s studio – handled with sweet production from James William Guerico that rivals his best work for Chicago! Even the lead vocals by David Clayton Thomas hold up nicely – and the set includes the classics "Variations On A Theme By Eric Satie", "And When I Die", "Smiling Phases", "More & More", "Spinning Wheel", and "You've Made Me So Very Happy".

Blues MagoosNever Goin Back To Georgia ... LP
ABC, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
A great bit of work from the re-formed Blues Magoos – a new incarnation of the group that had a few early garage rock hits, and which on this set features some great work by Eric Kaz, who seems to add a hip singer-songwriter feel to the record. The group have clearly been listening to a lot of blues and blue eyed soul, but also seem to have picked up a jazzy edge too – one that shows up nicely on the album's use of vibes. These are heard to wonderful effect on the instrumental groover "Getting Off", the mellow swinging instrumental "Georgia Breakdown", and on the group's funky cover of Joe Cuba's great "El Pito – I'll Never Go Back To Georgia" LP, Vinyl record album

New Angela BofillAngie ... CD
Buddah, 1978. Used ... $6.99
Angela Bofill's sublime first album – a mixture of jazzy soul and soulful jazz, all put together with a sound that's really a cut above most of her contemporaries! As with Jean Carn or Phyllis Hyman, there's a sophistication to Angela's sound here that indicates roots in much hipper territory that were still pulling strongly on her work for this mainstream set – a sound that runs deeper than you might expect for such a commercially successful record, and which has really kept it alive for years. Part of the strength of the set is the jazzy backings given the music – arranged by Dave Grusin, and carried off by himself on keyboards, with other players who include Eric Gale on guitar, Dave Valentin on reeds, Steve Gadd on drums, and Ralph MacDonald on percussion. There's a warmly glowing feel to the record that's neither slick or commercial – and titles include "Children Of The World United", "Summer Days", "Rough Times", "This Time I'll Be Sweeter", and "The Only Thing I Would Wish For".

New Kenny Burrell with the Jack McDuff QuartetCrash! ... CD
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
Kenny Burrell joins the quartet of Hammond hero Brother Jack McDuff – in a session that's not only a classic Prestige cooker from the 60s, but also one of Kenny's most hard grooving albums of the decade! Jack's tight group really seem to push Burrell into some great new territory – a different groove than his Blue Note or Verve sides, with a bit more grit overall – although still plenty of those perfectly-chosen notes on his solos. Harold Vick's tenor sax is the main reed element here, although Eric Dixon also plays flute on one track – and remaining players include Joe Dukes on drums and Ray Barreto on congas, a player who didn't often work with Jack, but who's very welcome here. Tracks are longish, with an open-ended soul jazz feel – not really blowing session numbers, given McDuff's tight sense of rhythm, but a nice change from the usual. Titles include "Grease Monkey", "Nica's Dream", "Love Walked In", and "We'll Be Together Again". CD

CBS Jazz All StarsMontreux Summit Vol 1 ... CD
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1977. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 18.98
A really amazing little record – way more than usual for this sort of live recording – given that it features some very unique performances together by artists we've never heard on the same stage otherwise! The premise is simple, but wonderfully effective – in that the album brings together some of the leading lights of the Columbia/CBS jazz stable at the time – a massive lineup of talent from a few key generations in jazz, sounding surprisingly great hear together! All tracks are nice and long – and titles include a brilliant version of "Infant Eyes" by a quartet with Stan Getz on tenor and Bob James on piano; "Fried Bananas" with Dexter Gordon on tenor, Slide Hampton on trombone, Woody Shaw on trumpet, and George Duke on piano; "Bahama Mama" with Bob James on keyboards, Bobbi Humphrey on flute, Eric Gale and Steve Kahn on guitars, and Billy Cobham on drums – and the long jam session tracks "Montreux Summit", "Blues March", and "Andromeda" – which feature work from most of the players above, all working in one large group – plus added flute from Hubert Laws and Thijs Van Leer, percussion from Ralph Maconald, and bass from Alphonso Johnson.
