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

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

New Eric DolphyBerlin Concerts ... LP
Inner City, 1961. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
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 DolphyConversations (aka Music Matador) ... CD
Fuel 2000, 1963. Used ... $6.99
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 DolphyOut There ... CD
New Jazz/OJC, 1960. Used ... $4.99
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 (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1964. Used ... $3.99
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

Eric DolphyOutward Bound (20 bit remaster) ... CD
Prestige/Fantasy, 1960. Used ... $9.99
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

Prestige/OJC, 1960. Used ... $6.99
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".

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

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".

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

Savant, 2012. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
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".

Eric RevisIn Memory Of Things Yet Seen ... CD
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".

Blue Erro Soul, 2005. New Copy ... $9.99
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

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!

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!

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

Eric TaggSmilin' Memories ... CD
EMI/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $22.99
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

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!

New Mal Waldron & Eric DolphyQuest ... LP
New Jazz, 1961. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Venus (Japan), 2013. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

High Note, 2014. Used ... 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

Eric Alexander in a perfect setting – working here with a rock-solid group of familiar players who are perfect for his soulful tenor sound! The album's got a gentle, ballad-heavy approach – but even so, the groove is superb, and right in the pocket right from the start – with Harold Mabern on piano, John Webber on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums – a trio who've worked often with Alexander over the years, and really know the right sort of modes to bring out the fullest feeling in his horn! Eric himself just gets better and better with age – a player who was already great in the early years, but who seems to get an even deeper sense of feeling as he matures – doing more with less, and shading in some especially great sounds on the ballads in the set. Titles include "Dinner For One Please James", "I'm Glad There Is You", "Oh Girl", "Touching", "Gone Too Soon", and "September Of My Years". CD

Prestige/OJC, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily 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".

This set features a slightly different lineup of the LJQ – one that includes Louie Ramirez on timbales, Felipe Diaz on vibes, and Art Jenkins on piano – all grooving very hard, and very tight next to Dolphy's work on alto, flute, and bass clarinet! His work here still has a bit of a modern edge, but not nearly as much so as on his work as a leader – mostly content to settle into the groove with the rest of the group, but then bursting out boldly with some really inventive solo moments!

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.

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".

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.

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.

West Wind (Germany), 1964. New Copy Gatefold ... 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". LP, Vinyl record album

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.

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.

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.

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
(CD case has a small cutout notch.)

New Eric DolphyLast Recordings ... CD
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

New Eric GaleGinseng Woman/Multiplication ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
