Eric AlexanderChicago Fire ... CD
High Note, 2014. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
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

Eric AlexanderMode For Mabes ... CD
Delmark, 1998. Used ... $8.99
A dynamic sextet outing from tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander – easily one of the best straight jazz albums recorded by the Delmark label in the 90s, put together with a rock-solid sound all the way through! Alexander's tenor would be enough to make the record great, but the album also features piano from perfect partner Harold Mabern – once Eric's teacher, but a player who's set on fire anew by his presence on dates like these. Other members of the group include trumpeter Jim Rotondi – nicely focused in the frontline here, and matching Alexander and trombonist Steve Davis on the heads with a classic sort of Blue Note energy. Bass is by John Webber and drums are by George Fludas – and titles include a great modal reading of "Naima", plus "Mode For Mabes", "Sugar Ray", "Erik The Red", "Love Thy Neighbor", "Stay Straight", and "For Heaven's Sake".

Ron Carter with Eric Dolphy & Mal WaldronWhere? ... CD
New Jazz/OJC, 1961. Used ... $3.99
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".

Prestige, 1961. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Classic set of European recordings – made by Dolphy in 1961, before the fateful 1964 European tour that would later claim his life. The group features Swedish piano giant Bent Axen, plus a rhythm section that includes Erik Moseholm on bass and Jorn Elniff on drums. Like most Dolphy recordings from the time, however, the main focus is on Dolphy himself, and the long tracks feature some beautiful extended solos on alto and flute. Tracks are long, and titles include "Hi Fly", "Oleo", and "Glad To Be Unhappy". LP, Vinyl record album

Eric DolphyEric Dolphy Memorial Album (aka Music Matador) ... LP
Vee Jay, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $3.99
Amazing work from Eric Dolphy – a record that's come out on a number of different labels, under a number of different names – but which is one of his most perfectly-realized sessions of the 60s, and one of his most spiritual albums ever! The record features a shifting lineup of players – almost presaging the ensemble modes that would rise more strongly in the post-Coltrane years – and Dolphy's chosen a strong group of associates, including Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Woody Shaw on trumpet, Clifford Jordan on soprano sax, Prince Lasha on flute, and Sonny Simmons on alto and bass clarinet. Dolphy plays flute, alto, and bass clarinet – and titles include "Love Me", a solo alto tune by Dolphy; "Alone Together", a duet with Davis' bass; a seminal take on "Jitterbug Waltz", completely reinventing the tune for new generations; and the massive "Music Matador".

Eric DolphyIron Man ... LP
Douglas/Celluloid, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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 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

Prestige/OJC, 1960. Used ... $5.99
Eric Dolphy's first meeting in the studio with trumpeter Booker Little – a brilliant batch of modernism that's easily one of the hippest records Little ever worked on! The Dolphy heard here is Eric at his most inventive – sharp-edged and angular one minute, then spiritually lyrical the next – playing flute, bass clarinet, and alto sax equally well on the record – and somehow managing to get Little to share his inspiration perfectly on every number. 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".

Essential would be an understatement. Includes the immortal "I Ain't No Joke", "Eric B Is In The Cut", "I Know You Got Soul", "Move The Crowd", "Paid in Full", "Chinese Arithmetic", and "Eric B.

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

A pivotal album for Eric Kloss, and one that has him reaching for the freer style that would characterize his work for the next decade – but which also has him sticking pretty close to his soul jazz roots, and laying down some tight modal grooves. The group here includes Jimmy Owens on trumpet, Pat Martino on guitar, and the tight rhythm team of Ben Tucker and Alan Dawson. Titles include "Soul Daddy", "Nocturno", and the extended soulful track "Life Force". Very very nice, and one that doesn't show up often, either! LP, Vinyl record album

Great early Eric Kloss record, with a tight organ jazz feel, courtesy of Groove Holmes and Don Patterson. 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".

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".

John Mayall's Blues BreakersBlues Breakers With Eric Clapton ... LP
Deram, 1966. Very Good ... $19.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Pulp Flavor (France), 1970s/2002. New Copy ... $15.99
Great music – made even better! You've probably heard us rave about the work of Janko Nilovic – the Paris-based composer who did some incredible work in the 70s – a mad blend of beats, grooves, voices, and odd instrumental touches. And while we love Janko's work on its own, it sound extra-great in this remix set by Eric Caspar – which pulls out all the best sounds in Janko's older recordings, and offers them up in new versions that still have a lot of the mad spirit of the original. As a whole, we never seem to like remix projects as much as the originals, but in this case, we really think the tracks are as good – and in some cases even better – than Janko's normal recordings! Titles include remixed versions of "Batucada Pop", "Paris Le Bourget", "Disco Tonic", "Paris Safari", "Super Weekend", "Vibraphone Interlude", and "Boulmich Bossa". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

Smoke Sessions, 2014. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
Groovewise, the record's a great one – one of the strongest in years from pianist Eric Reed – who works here in an open-ended live setting with Seamus Blake on tenor! The album's a great example of the way these Smoke Sessions records can really open up the right sort of artist – as Reed reminds us of his ability to soulfully swing and really get down to business – working here with Blake's tenor in these wide waves of sound on the groovers, then laying back into these complex lines in the more gentle passages – both aided nicely by the work of Ben Williams on bass and Gregory Hutchinson on drums. All tracks are nice and long – and really flow with the kind of magic that Eric brings to his performances in a club – and titles include "Powerful Paul Robeson", "Until The Last Cat Has Swung", "Ornate", "The Gentle Giant", "The Shade Of The Cedar Tree", "Una Mujer Elegante", and "Groovewise".

Clean Feed (Portugal), 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... $14.99
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

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. This overdue collection pulls together all the best of those moments, and throws in a few special Roberson recordings too – all to make for one hell of a great record that's bursting with some of the best ideas going in contemporary soul.

Stunning soul from Eric Roberson – an artist we've already loved for many years, but who just keeps on getting better and better with each new record! The album's got a near-perfect feel that lives up to the poise and confidence displayed by Roberson on the cover – songwriting that's deeply soulful and very personal, and able to embrace a much greater range of ideas than so many of his contemporaries – a richness that goes back to Eric's earlier roots in house and hip hop, but served up with a power to match the classic soul singers of the 70s! The bottom is nice and deep – with the kind of boom you'd expect from the box of the cover – but there's also loads of warm jazzy inflections too – both in Roberson's vocals, and in the instrumentation. Titles include "Haunted", "Pill", "The Box", "Lust For Love", "I'm Not Trying To Keep Score No More", "Punch Drunk Love", "The Cycle", and "Do The Same For Me". CD

Eric Roberson, 2002. New Copy ... $9.99
Brilliant work from America's next great soul singer – the incredible Eric Roberson, one of the freshest male soul vocalists in years! At one level, Eric's work is steeped in the classic styles of Donnie Hathaway and Marvin Gaye – but at another, it's completely without cliche or stylistic precedent – as fresh as the best newer work by female singers like Jill Scott or Julie Dexter. Roberson's rhythmic conception is really tremendous – open, free, and presented in a way that pushes the vocals past obvious patterns that so often plague male soul singers. The set's got a really fresh approach that's also due in part to Roberson's use of a variety of producers – including Osunlade, Vidal Davis, Redhead Kingpin, and others. Jill Scott does guest vocals on the track "One Time", but it's Eric's genius that really brings the whole set home! Titles include "Rock With You", "Past Paradise", "She Couldn't Hear Me", "Rebound", "Rain On My Parade", and "When Love Calls" – and if you've been looking for a soul record to change your life, this is it!

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!

Eric RobersonEsoteric ... CD
Eric Roberson, 2001. New Copy ... $9.99
The genesis of a modern soul genius – Eric Roberson's first album, finally back in print, and filled with a wonderful assortment of early work! Eric kind of set this one up as an introduction to his wide range of talents – including notes in the booklet about each tune and the story of its development – and, in keeping with his strong sense of good spirits, also giving credit to other artists, producers, and friends who helped him find his sound. The sound is quite similar to work on Eric's seminal Vault albums – mellow, but never slick or smooth – and in a warmly personal style that's made Roberson one of the greatest underground soul artists working today! Titles include "Genesis", "4U", "Runaway", "Morning After", "Crazy", "Rain On My Parade", "Woman", "New Born Child", "She Went Away", and "Funny Feelings". CD

Blue Erro Soul, 2007. New Copy ... $9.99
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

Eric RobersonMusic Fan First ... CD
Blue Erro Soul, 2009. New Copy ... $9.99
Damn wonderful music from Eric Roberson – an artist who never lets us down! Eric's got a style that's unlike anyone else we can think of – warm, wonderful, and full of joy – without any posturing modes at all, and a down to earth sensibility that's kept him at the top of our playlists for years – and which makes each new record a delight! This set's Roberson's first for a few years, but it's well worth the wait – as there's a deepened sense of soul that really comes through in the songwriting – a new level of maturity in the way he looks at life, yet still all the boyish, honest charm that's always drawn us into his music. Production is beautiful – simple and elegant, yet in ways that get far past some of the overdone modes of the underground – proving once again that Roberson is one of the few cats out there who's actually setting new standards all the time in his music – an under-discovered genius that we're plenty proud to know! Eric gets help on the record from guests who include Sy Smith, Wayna, Lalah Hathaway, Geno Young, and W Ellington Felton – but as always, it's the Roberson genius that really grabs us – on titles that include "The Hunger", "A Tale Of Two", "Borrow You", "Dealing", "How Could She Do It", "Further", "Bad For Me", "Breakitdown", "Pave A New Road", "Wanna Believe Again", and "Celebrate". A very long album – over 75 minutes of music – proving that Eric's definitely a music fan first! CD

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

Milestone, 2001. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Alexander's second outing for the Milestone label (hence the title), and a wonderful album of soulful tenor tracks that has him working in a quintet with Harold Mabern on piano and Jim Rotondi on trumpet. Mabern and Alexander have, by this time, forged quite a sympathetic relationship – and, dare we say it, their pairing here reminds us a lot of the warmly soulful styles forged by Mabern and Frank Strozier in years past. The set's sparkling with original tunes that include "The Man From Hyde Park", "Luna Naranja", and "The Second Milestone" – plus Mabern's classic "John Neely Beautiful People", and great versions of "Estate" and "Matchmaker Matchmaker".

Milestone, 2002. Used ... Just Sold Out!
This tenor giant gets better and better with each new album! Eric Alexander is one of our favorite new jazz artists of the past decade – still a relatively young player, but with a sound that's incredible, steeped in years of tradition, yet freely creative in his own unique way. His tenor solos on this set stand up to some of our favorite older work by players like Clifford Jordan or Sonny Rollins, and if anything, the backing may be some of the best he's ever received on record. Alexander's playing here with longtime friend and musical partner Harold Mabern – who's as sympathetic to Alexander's sound as he once was to that of Frank Strozier – and the other players in the group include trumpeter Nicholas Payton, John Webber, and Joe Farnsworth. Titles include "Andre's Turn", "After The Rain", "This Girl's In Love With You", "A House Is Not A Home", and "Summit Meeting". CD

High Note, 2004. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Another chapter of greatness from one of the greatest living tenorists in jazz – the mighty Eric Alexander, recording here in quartet formation with longtime partner Harold Mabern on piano! The album's got a fluid groove that's right up there with Alexander's best recent work for other Milestone – a timeless approach to soul jazz that's crafted with an ease and grace that few other players can match. Mabern's accompaniment is right on the money, and rhythm from the team of drummer Joe Farnsworth and bassist John Webber is never too cluttered, nor too laidback. As usual, Alexander's got a hell of an ear for a tune – and has come up with some great gems for the set, including Herbie Hancock's "Sonorisa", Mabern's classic "A Few Miles From Memphis", and Pat Martino's "Dead Center". Other tracks include "One For Steve", "It's Magic", and "Search For Peace". CD

A hokey kind of cover, but a great little album – another easy winner from the team of Eric Alexander and Harold Mabern, easily one of the greatest pairs working together in jazz for the past decade or so! Alexander's got a tremendous tone on the tenor – finely-honed with the maturity of a later Dexter Gordon, but also open to fluid, free moments too – with a sense of joy and exploration that recall our favorite moments on mid 60s Blue Note or Prestige. Mabern is great too – warm on the keys, but never sloppy – a player more filled with soul these days than ever, and always a great accompanist to Alexander's shifting range of modes in a set like this. Drums are by Joe Farnsworth, another trustworthy regular partner to the pair – and Nat Reeves completes the quartet on bass. Titles include 3 excellent Alexander originals (always his best work on record) – "Typhoon 11", "Little Lucas", and "Open & Shut" – plus versions of "Where Is The Love", "Where Or When", "Ruby My Dear", and "It's All In The Game".

Always-great work from Eric Alexander – one of our favorite tenor players of the modern age, and a talent who gets better and better with each album! This one features Eric working with pianist Harold Mabern – in a wonderful union that's been forged over the course of a number of records, and which seems to be one of the greatest things that's happened to either player. Mabern lays out loads of wonderful modal lines in the set – keeping a rhythmic pulse that stretches out Alexander's solos in sweeping brilliance on the upbeat tracks, holding them back with gentle soul on the mellower ones. The rest of the group is completed by Ron Carter on bass and Joe Farnsworth on drums – and titles include "Nemesis", "I Can Dream, Can't I?", "Nightlife In Tokyo", "Cold Smoke", "Island", and "Big RC".

There's always these, "whoa," moments on Alexander's records, where he's rolling along with an effective approach that's just enough to pull you in and hold you, and then he just runs off with a dexterous line of notes that knocks it right out of the park. He's backed by the great Harold Mabern on piano, Nat Reeves on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums, under producer Don Sickler and engineer Rudy Van Gelder.

A cheesy cover, but a rock-solid set of work from the mighty Eric Alexander – who seems to be stretching out even more here than before! Alexander's always been a hell of a straight ahead talent on the tenor, but here he's almost hitting a few more modern modes at times – not "out" in his soloing, but a bit more free thinking in the overall construction and execution of the tunes – willing to change things up a bit in the rhythms, and give the record even more freshness than we might have expected. Alexander's easily one of the greatest living talents in jazz recording today – and we're already huge fans of his work – but he's won us over even more with this set, and a few of the chances he takes on some of the tunes. The group's a well-matched batch of regulars – including Jim Rotondi on trumpet, David Hazeltine on piano, Nat Reeves on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums – and titles include "The Temple Of Olympic Zeus", "Someday We'll All Be Free", "Lucas Too", "Blues For David", "I'm Gonna Laugh You Right Out Of My Life", "I'll Keep Loving You", and "Dave's System".

Delmark, 1993. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Clear, clean, and tremendous tenor work from a young Eric Alexander – working here in one of his early partnerships with pianist Harold Mabern – in a way that really helps to re-direct Mabern's energy, and take him back to the glory days of his recordings in the 60s! Alexander's tenor has a classic sound here that's wonderful – focused and very sure of itself, and able to roll out on longer numbers with a great sense of imagination that avoids any too-easy notes or hackneyed choices. Mabern follows suit strongly – sounding better than on any of his trio records from the same period, and matching Alexander's youthful energy with some soaring lines of his own – often in a modal mode that seems to bring out the best in both players. Drums are by the rock-solid Joe Farnsworth, and bass is by John Ore – on tracks that include "Up Over & Out", "Eronel", "Flying Fish", "Blues For Mabe", "I Remember Clifford", and "Bewitched". CD

Amazing work from Eric Dolphy – a record that's come out on a number of different labels, under a number of different names – but which is one of his most perfectly-realized sessions of the 60s, and one of his most spiritual albums ever! The record features a shifting lineup of players – almost presaging the ensemble modes that would rise more strongly in the post-Coltrane years – and Dolphy's chosen a strong group of associates, including Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Woody Shaw on trumpet, Clifford Jordan on soprano sax, Prince Lasha on flute, and Sonny Simmons on alto and bass clarinet. Dolphy plays flute, alto, and bass clarinet – and titles include "Love Me", a solo alto tune by Dolphy; "Alone Together", a duet with Davis' bass; a seminal take on "Jitterbug Waltz", completely reinventing the tune for new generations; and the massive "Music Matador".

Two bright tenor talents from the New York scene – coming together beautifully here, with one heck of a great rhythm section! The players are all familiar, but the sound is nice and fresh – thanks to really strong interplay between the tenors of Eric Alexander and Grant Stewart – both driven onward with energy that almost reminds us of a Johnny Griffin/Eddie Davis session from way back! There's plenty of that older soul on some of these tunes – mixed with a few that have a bit more poise, too – a good balance that's handled well in the rhythms by David Hazeltine on piano, John Webber on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums. Titles include "R&D Bossa", "Crying Blues", "Omicron", "Amsterdam After Dark", and "Rise N Shine". CD

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

Most of the set features original compositions by Wyatt – whose writing is also a delight – and the well-chosen group includes Duane Eubanks on trumpet, Clifton Anderson on trombone, and Benito Gonzalez on piano.

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

Inner City, 1961. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful work by Dolphy – as essential to his catalog as any of his albums on Prestige from the same time! Although Dolphy broke plenty of musical barriers in the studio, to our ears, it was always in a live setting that he sounded best – freely exploring the kind of space his playing opened up, hitting notes that were more soulful and spiritual than many that he ever recorded on his studio sides. This set is a perfect example of that trend – as Dolphy's working here with a strong straight jazz combo, one that includes the great Benny Bailey on trumpet, in a set that features familiar tunes, turned into haunting explorations of Dolphy's new jazz idiom. One of the highlights is an incredible 15 minute version of Randy Weston's "Hi Fly", with Dolphy doing great work on flute – and other tunes include "Hot House", "Geewee", "When Lights Are Low", "I'll Remember April", and "The Meeting".

New Eric DolphyIron Man ... CD
Douglas/Fuel 2000, 1962. Used ... 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". CD

New Eric DolphyOut There ... LP
Prestige/New Jazz, 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
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 Chico HamiltonChico Hamilton Quintet Featuring Eric Dolphy – Complete Sessions 1958/1959 (With Strings Attached/Gongs East/Hamilton Man) ... CD
Warner/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1958/1959. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A full-length document of the great late 50s stretch when a young Eric Dolphy was a member of Chico Hamilton's group! The 2CD set features three albums' worth of music, plus bonus tracks too – the first of which is Chico Hamilton Quintet With Strings Attached, one of the best records that Chico Hamilton cut during the 50s – and one that features Eric Dolphy, who was with Chico's group for a short while! The record's got the quintet (which also includes the excellent Dennis Budimir on guitar) fronting larger string arrangements by Fred Katz (no longer their cellist, but still a key force here) – and the approach is a great expansion on the earlier styles that Chico forged for Pacific Jazz. The strings here are never sleepy, and instead have a dark and modern feel overall – similar to Ralph Burns' best work of the time, but a bit more restrained – and Eric Dolphy's reed work really keeps things interesting, with sharp-edged notes give most of the tracks a fair bit of depth. Titles include "Modes", "Strange", "Don's Delight", "Andante", "Fair Weather", "Something To Live For", and "Pottsville USA". Gong's East is next – quite possibly the best album to feature the talents of Chico Hamilton and Eric Dolphy! Although Chico Hamilton had recorded with unusual reed players before, Dolphy brings a depth of soul and spirit to this album that's missing from a lot of Chico's earlier work at the time – a style that still holds onto some of the measured qualities of the Pacific Jazz work by the Hamilton group, yet which also opens up into some of the darker corners that Dolphy would explore more on his own recordings of the 60s. The group also features some great guitar by Dennis Budimir and cello by Nathan Gershman – but the real standout aspects of the set come from Dolphy's work on flute, alto, and bass clarinet. Titles include "Where I Live", "Passion Flower", "Tuesday At Two", "Nature by Emerson", "Far East", and "Good Grief, Dennis". Possibly the most amazing record here is The Hamilton Man – a rare date done for the smaller Sesac label, and one that features some especially freewheeling sounds! Dolphy's totally great on alto sax – very hard-burning and edgey, and captured with some of the darker tones that you'd hear on his Prestige albums, although a bit more in a Hamilton-rhythmed groove overall. Dennis Budimir's on the set on great guitar – often hitting lines at the same time as Eric – and titles include "Pretty Little Theme", "Little Lost Bear", "Theme For A Starlet", "Fat Mouth", "Truth", and "Opening". Last up are 3 more tunes from The Three Faces Of Chico – all the Dolphy tracks from that record, including "More Than You Know", "Miss Movement", and "Newport News". CD

New Eric ReedAdventurous Monk ... CD
High Note/Savant, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

New Tarbaby (Orrin Evans, Eric Revis, Nasheet Waits)Fanon – A Musical Tribute To Frantz Fanon ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
