New Eric AlexanderRecado Bossa Nova ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2014. New Copy ... $32.99
A whole new setting for tenorist Eric Alexander – and a great one too! The album's got Alexander in a bossa-styled mode – but less like the facile bossa jazz projects of the 60s than some of the harder-edged ones you'd get from players like Ike Quebec or Charlie Rouse! The sharpness of the rhythms have a good deal to do with the strength of the record – played by familiar Alexander associates Harold Mabern on piano, Nat Reeves on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums – but at a level that's very different than their usual accompaniment, which really shows their diversity. Titles include "Recado Bossa Nova", "Corcovado", "Manteca", "Journey", "So In Love", and "Mambo Inn". CD

Eric DolphyBerlin Concerts ... LP
Inner City, 1961. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $8.99
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".

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".

New 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

New 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 DolphyOut To Lunch (75th Anniversary Edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

2 LP set that reissues 2 harder to find Dolphy records: Here & There, and Eric Dolphy In Europe Vol 2. Here & There has Dolphy in studio sessions with Jaki Byard, Booker Little, and Mal Waldron – and it includes the tracks "Status Seeking", "God Bless The Child", and "April Fool". In Europe Vol 2 features live recordings with Bent Axen on piano – and titles include "Miss Ann", "Don't Blame Me", and "Laura", which is a beautiful 13 minute version played solo on bass clarinet.

Prestige/OJC, 1960. Used ... $3.99
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". CD features 1 bonus track – "Serene". CD

Crestline, 2013. New Copy ... $8.99 21.99
A glorious tribute to the world of bowling – filled with loads and loads of vintage images – including advertisements, posters, and lots of bowling alley propaganda! We're huge fans of bowling alleys – from the taverns inside, which are often hidden gems – to the well-waxed lanes, which provide hours of fun – to the overall culture of the place, which can stand as an island in both the streams of time and local change! This book gets at all that charm, and more – and offers up some history of the sport and its big rise in post-war America – all with a great style that really lives up to the retro image on the cover. 128 pages, full color, and hardcover.

New Mark EricMidsummer's Day Dream (expanded edition) ... CD
Uni/Now Sounds (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $8.99
An incredible fantasy of California pop – recorded too late in the 60s to really strike big, but with a perfect approach to mid-decade Beach Boys at their best! Mark Eric's clearly borrowing plenty of pages from Brian Wilson's bag for this set (and maybe Brian Hyland too) – and the original tunes have the beautiful quality of Wilson's best writing in the pre-Pet Sounds years – dealing with deeper themes, but in a very careful and sometimes guarded way that makes the tunes that much more heartfelt. The arrangements are Wilson-inspired too – but have a more mature style than the lyrics – handled by Vic Briggs with a quality that's similar to the brilliant Surf Symphony album of the same year – almost a dreamy remembrance of the sweeter side of California earlier in the decade, but undercut with some of the bluer, more adult modes of the time. Backings feature swirling strings, ringing vibes, and some groovy guitar – and Mark's vocals are often recorded in a way that harmonizes them against the lead – a one-man vocal group, with echoes of The Four Freshmen at times. Titles include "California Home", "Move With The Dawn", "Laura's Changing", "Lynn's Baby", "Just Passing By", "Sad Is The Way That I Feel", and "Take Me With You". Newly expanded edition features a whopping 16 bonus tracks – mono mixes of some cuts from the album, some very cool airline commercials, and rare tracks that include "Build Your Own Dreams", "Place For The Summer", "No Days No Nights", "Naked Lady", "Goin Native","Summer Goes This Way", and "Hey In The Water".

Smooth fusion from guitarist Eric Gale – Blue Horizon is a focused record with a style that's still relatively smooth, yet a bit more in the mode that we like on Gale's 70s work. The core group features some nice keyboards from Peter Schott and drums from Freddie Waits – and Hugh Masekela guests on flugelhorn on a bit of the album. Tracks have a solidly fusion-based approach, yet are relaxedly soulful, never with too much jamming – and titles include "When Tokyo", "Clock A Pa", "Call Me At The Same Number", "97th & Columbus", "Wait Until The City Sleeps", "Blue Horizon", and "Mako D'Amour".

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 Kloss' great first jazz outing, recorded back when he was a teenage virtuoso attending the Western Pennsylvania School for Blind Children.

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

A extremely rare album that Eric Dolphy recorded with the Latin Jazz Quintet – a rare Latin-based side of Dolphy's career, and a set that's a bit different than the Prestige album by the same pairing! 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! Titles include "Mangolina", "Cha Cha King", "Speak Low", "Night In Tunisia", and "I Got Rhythm". CD

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

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".

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

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!

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

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 SidayUltra Sonic Perception ... CD
Berry/Dual Planet (Australia), Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
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 number of cuts here were used as early passages on the first Doctor Who episodes – and others follow nicely in a similar vein – with very bold, powerful explorations of the earliest elements of analogue electronics – and an especially strong ear for the darker side of the spectrum! Most numbers here are never too noisy – not as much so as avant compositional work of the time – but they hang on the edge in a really great way, creating a lot of stark spacey elements with just a few deft touches. Titles include "Comet", "Ultimate", "Moonscape", "Galaxy", "Suspended Animation", "The Machines", "Pavane", "Pizzicato Piano", "Challenge Of Space", and "Eclipse". 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

New Aki Takase/Alexander Von SchlippenbachSo Long Eric – Homage To Eric Dolphy ... CD
Intakt (Switzerland), 2014. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Twin pianos come together wonderfully here in a tribute to the late Eric Dolphy – as Alexander Von Schlippenbach and Aki Takase play together on the instrument, and lead a larger ensemble that includes Karl Berger on vibes, Axel Dorner on trumpet, Nils Wogram on trombone, Tobias Delius on tenor, and Han Bennink on drums! The tunes are all classic Dolphy compositions – and are given very inventive reworkings here by the larger group – with shifting focus between group horn passages, solo lines, and very bold piano work – all with an angular, exploratory style that Eric would have loved. Titles include "Hat & Beard", "Out To Lunch", "Serene", "Miss Ann", "Les", and "Something Sweet Something Tender". 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

New Eric Burdon & WarEric Burdon Declares War ... LP
MGM, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
War became so popular on their own in later years that it's easy to forget how they first sprung onto the soul charts – here, in an album of many styles that was put together by the wayward Eric Burdon after the dissolution of The Animals. We have to admit that Burdon was a genius to hook onto the rich talents of this LA combo – even though he really didn't know what to do with them on this record. Part of the album's an homage to Roland Kirk, part is an extended reworking of "Tobacco Road", and part is an overly-long bluesy passage called "Blues For Memphis Slim". Fortunately, the record also includes the monster groover "Spill The Wine", one of the first big crossover tracks to popularize the Chicano funk sound of LA – and a great little groover that still hooks us in today.

New Ron Carter with Eric Dolphy & Mal WaldronWhere? ... LP
New Jazz, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

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".

Dolphy plays a solo bass clarinet version of "God Bless The Child"; he plays with Booker Little and Mal Waldron on "Status Seeking"; he's on flute in a quartet with Jaki Byard on "April Fool"; and he plays with a pickup Danish rhythm section on an alternate take of "Don't Blame Me".

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

The set's more in a funk mode overall – and one that will definitely please fans of the spacier side of the 70s spectrum – almost a distillation of territory spanned by cats like Herbie Hancock or Ronnie Foster, but filtered into a 21st Century aesthetic too – so that the best bits come to the forefront, and really give the album a lean sort of crackle. Most of the record is instrumental, and titles include "Cruise Control", "Sometime", "Home Run", "PPG", "Warp", "Minnie", "Love Love Love", "What's Going Down", "Noma", "Give Light Give Love", and "Change".

Twin piano grooving from Eric Reed and Cyrus Chestnut – a live set recorded at Lincoln Center, but with the intimate feel of a small club date!

New Mal Waldron & Eric DolphyQuest ... CD
New Jazz/OJC, 1961. Used ... Temporarily 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

Really tremendous work from tenorist Eric Wyatt – a set that has the musician really coming into his own, and maybe emerging as one of the most soulful, spiritual players in recent years! The set bristles with soaring energy – a really kind of old school blend of spiritual jazz and more focused soulbop – with especially searing tenor lines from Wyatt on most numbers, but also a bit of flute as well – all played with a wellspring of emotion that takes us back to Pharoah Sanders on Impulse, or maybe Sonny Rollins at his most expressive. 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. Titles include "Ancient Chinese Secrets", "Borough Of Kings", "One For Hakim", "The People's Champ", "Countdown", and "Quest". CD

The album's got Alexander in a bossa-styled mode – but less like the facile bossa jazz projects of the 60s than some of the harder-edged ones you'd get from players like Ike Quebec or Charlie Rouse! The sharpness of the rhythms have a good deal to do with the strength of the record – played by familiar Alexander associates Harold Mabern on piano, Nat Reeves on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums – but at a level that's very different than their usual accompaniment, which really shows their diversity. Titles include "Recado Bossa Nova", "Corcovado", "Manteca", "Journey", "So In Love", and "Mambo Inn". LP, Vinyl record album

New Claude Bolling/Eric DemarsanLes Passagers ... CD
Music Box (France), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two different soundtracks for the same film – both of them pretty darn great! Claude Bolling starts out the set with 18 tracks penned for the movie – music that often has a jazzy vibe, with either piano or flute in the lead – and tunes that mix in some more dramatic passages with lighter instrumental modes. Eric Demarsan's music is even more compelling – sounds that flow nicely off his work with Jean-Pierre Melville, and which almost have a quality that's more late 60s than the date of the film – which may be why the music wasn't used. Demarsan does a great job of creating a lot with just a little and surprises us with a few unusual lighter tunes as well. CD features almost 70 minutes of music – with titles that include "Le Camion", "Suspense", "Froid", "Tunnel Rouge", "Trio Classique", "Traques", "Rome Paris", "Itineraire", and "L'Autoroute". CD

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!

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.

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.

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. Almost all tracks are originals – and titles include "I'll Be Around", "Dorman Road", "Lil's Blues", and "Orders To Take Out". LP, Vinyl record album

Count BasieBasic Basie ... CD
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1969. New Copy ... $14.99
Nothing basic about this album by Count Basie – as the album has the legend working for the MPS label – whose own big band scene he really helped inspire! The band here is really dynamic – working with great arrangements from Chico O'Farrill, who's inherent sense of groove really gets things going from the start – which creates plenty of energy for the horn work by players who include Bobby Plater and Marshall Royal on alto, Eric Dixon on flute and tenor, Eddie Lockjaw Davis on additional tenor, Grover Mitchell on trombone, and Oscar Brashear and Sonny Cohn on trumpets. Basie himself plays piano – with that legendary punctuated style that's still quite strong at this point – and titles include "M Squad", "Blues In My Heart", "Sweet Lorraine", "Red Roses For A Blue Lady", "As Long As I Live", and "I've Got The World On A String".

New Count BasieBasie Land ... LP
Verve, 1963. Good+ ... $0.99
Basieland in the 60s – a very nice place to be! This excellent Verve session features the highly pyrotechnic Basie 60s ensemble really letting loose – complete with great horn work by Frank Foster, Frank Wess, and Eric Dixon on reeds – all of whom bring a very soulful edge to the proceedings, and blow these strong sharp lines over the album's great arrangements from Billy Byers. Byers also wrote all the tunes too – making the set one of those great Basie albums that overflows with fresh new songs that continually redefine the Count's groove. Tracks are short and tight, but have some wonderful horn charts that really explode with magical energy – and titles include "Sassy", "Wanderlust", "Instant Blues", "Basie Land", "Big Brother", and "Yuriko". LP, Vinyl record album

Count BasieCount Basie & The Kansas City Seven ... LP
Impulse, 1962. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Stripped-down Count Basie from the start of the 60s – a great little set that has the Count working with some of the best players from his larger group, in a session of even more intimate small combo material! The sounds here echo the Basie groove of the earlier years, but the overall presentation is a fair bit more modern – nicely syncopated with that sense of space discovered by Basie in the 50s – and perfectly interpreted by players who include Thad Jones on trumpet, Frank Wess on flute, Frank Foster on tenor, Freddie Green on guitar, Eric Dixon on flute, and Basie himself on both piano and organ – the latter of which is quite a treat! Titles include "Secrets", "Count's Place", "I Want A Little Girl", "Tally Ho Mr Basie", "Senator Whitehead", "Whatcha Talkin", and "Shoe Shine Boy". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s non-gatefold pressing, with liner notes on the inner sleeve. Cover has light wear and two stickers on the back.)

Count BasieCount Basie & The Kansas City Three – For The Second Time ... LP
Pablo/OJC, 1975. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A Count Basie trio set – the second meeting of the Kansas City Three, a combo that features Ray Brown on bass an Louis Bellson on drums! Basie's really great here – out front, and moving with modes that are quite different than his fuller group sessions – surprisingly sensitive at points, even though still imbued with all of his trademark swing! Bellson's touch on the kit really helps – punctuating things, while never going too far at all – a nice punch, right when needed – and Ray Brown proves once again that he's just the right fit for just about any combo. Titles include "Racehorse", "Blues For Eric", "Draw", "Sandman", "If I Could Be With You For One Hour Tonight", and "I Surrender Dear". LP, Vinyl record album

Count BasieCount Basie Big Band – Live Montreux 77 ... LP
Pablo, 1977. Very Good+ ... $1.99
The 70s Count Basie Band in all their glory – recorded live in extremely tight formation at the 1977 Montreux Jazz Festival! Despite the live setting, the recording quality here is impeccable – easily on a par with most of the group's studio dates from the decade, especially in the way that Basie's piano thunders out in front of the rest of the group! Players include Sonny Cohn, Bobby Mitchell, Al Grey, Jimmy Forrest, Eric Dixon, and Freddie Green – and although tracks are short, they're still filled with a good sense of surprise – that Basie dynamics that really started kicking in during the 50s, and which held on strong on records like this! Titles include "The More I See You", "Night In Tunisia", "The Heat's On", "Freckle Face", "Splanky", "I Needs To Be Bee'd With", "Lil Darlin", and "Bag Of Dreams". LP, Vinyl record album

Count Basie & His OrchestraBasie Meets Bond (plus bonus track) ... CD
Capitol/Jazz Heritage, 1965. Used ... $6.99
An excellent gimmick – and yet another way that United Artists was trying to push its "Bond" catalog in the 60s! Count Basie brings a soulful swing to the work of John Barry – hitting hard on the tracks with his own smoking piano, and an orchestra filled with some of his best players, like Al Grey, Eric Dixon, and Freddie Green – as well as Eddie Lockjaw Davis, an artist who wasn't credited on the session at he time. Arrangements are by Chico O'Farrill and George Williams – and titles include "Thunderball", "From Russia With Love", "007", ""Dr Know's Fantasy", "Girl Trouble", and "Goldfinger". This CD includes the bonus "Dr Know's Fantasy (First Version)". CD

Count Basie & Mills BrothersAnnual Report ... LP
Dot, 1968. Sealed ... $1.99
A surprisingly nice later session by The Mills Brothers – working here with Count Basie, in a set of tracks that's certainly groovier than some of their early work. The feel here is much more 60s than you'd expect – with some arrangements by Chico O'Farrill, and performances by Eddie Lockjaw Davis and Eric Dixon, and a few tracks that are original to the album. Titles include "Glow Worm", "Cielito Lind", "Every Day", "Sent For You Yesterday & Here You Come Today", "Gentle On My Mind", and "You Never Miss The Water Till The Well Runs Dry".

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

Ran BlakeRan Blake Plays Solo Piano ... CD
ESP, 1965. New Copy ... $10.99 12.99
Really amazing early work from pianist Ran Blake – an artist who's continued to blow our minds in more recent years, but who sounds especially outstanding hear in an early session for the ESP label! The album's quite different from some of the freer, bolder music you'd normally associate with ESP – as Ran plays solo here, with a style that's very poetic – although still quite open-ended and free, with a fair bit of improvisation as well. The shift of tones alone is mindblowing – almost beyond anything you might expect to come from the piano, yet without any of the heavier-handed modes of a player like Cecil Taylor. Original material is mixed with very vivid re-workings of jazz standards – and titles include "Vanguard", "Sister Tee", "Eric", "Stratusphunk", "On Green Dolphin Street", and "Lonely Woman". CD

Blues MagoosNever Goin Back To Georgia ... LP
ABC, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
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

John ColtraneImpressions ... LP
Impulse, 1963. Very Good- Gatefold ... $19.99
Brilliant work – John Coltrane really opening up in his new spiritual mode of the 60s, hinting at the changes to come, while still keeping the modal groove of previous recordings! The record features tracks from a few different sessions from the years 1961 to 1963, but it holds together beautifully – thanks to a unified creative spirit in the music! The centerpiece of the album is the stunning track "Impressions" – performed by the quartet with McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison, and Elvin Jones – but all tracks are great, and titles include "After the Rain", and "Up 'Gainst The Wall" – plus the brilliant cut "India", which features guest work by Eric Dolphy on bass clarinet!

Count Basie OrchestraLong Live The Chief (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Denon (Japan), 1986. Used ... $3.99
A post-Basie session from the Count Basie Orchestra – recorded after the Count had passed away, and Frank Foster returned from his wayward years to assume leadership of the group! The sound here is very much in the best Basie mode of the late 50s and early 60s – extremely fluid large group arrangements that sparkle with touches from Basie stalwarts Frank Foster, Eric Dixon, and Freddie Green – plus a number of younger players in the group. Dee Carson is sitting in Basie's chair on piano, and Carmen Bradford sings on the track "A Foggy Day". Other titles include "Hey I See You Over There", "You Got It", "April In Paris", "Bus Dust", and "Corner Pocket". CD

New Hank CrawfordHank Crawford's Back ... LP
Kudu, 1977. Very Good+ ... $0.99
Hank Crawford turns his back on the cover of this sweet little set from Kudu – but the groove itself is very upfront, strongly in the best mix of funky jazz and club the label had going down into the late 70s! Arrangements are by David Matthews, who keeps things lean and mean, even when the instrumentation is fairly large – and Hank's nicely burning alto is firmly in the lead, blown with a sound that echoes back to older soul jazz modes of the 60s, but which has some smoother touches overall for the 70s. The album's got plenty of keyboards from Richard Tee, plus trombone solos from Fred Wesley, flute from Jeremy Steig, and guitar from Eric Gale – plus backing vocals on some of the cuts. Titles include "Funky Pigeon", "Midnight Over Memphis", "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine", "Canadian Sunset", and "I Can't Stop Loving You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear & a cutout notch.)
