Compelling compositions from the great Henry Threadgill – recorded here with a really like-minded batch of players who perfectly help him realize his musical vision! There's a nicely snakey feel to some of the tunes here – almost a journey in jazz expression from the left side of the spectrum – lead with a bit more strength than some of Threadgill's other contemporaries, but still allowing plenty of room for solo expression! Two percussionists drive the ensemble – Pheeroan Aklaff and John Betsch – and other players include Ray Anderson on trombone, Rasul Siddik on trumpet, Fred Hopkins on bass, and Deidre Murray on cello – as well as Threadgill himself on flute, alto, tenor, and clarinet. Amina Claudine Myers contributes vocals on one number – "A Piece Of Software", which features lyrics by Cassandra Wilson – and other titles include "Just Trinity The Man", "Homeostasis", "Higher Places", "Subject To Change", and "This".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

When Was That?
About Time, 1982. New Copy
One of the most beautiful, lyrical albums we've ever heard from Henry Threadgill – a set that still has all the sharp edges you might know from his other work, but which also comes across with a slightly more sensitive sound as well! The compositions are beautiful – really well-written ... LP, Vinyl record album
Outer & Interactions
About Time, 1988. New Copy
LP...$7.99 11.99
A really rich combination of sounds – one of those rare moments when the end result of a session comes out sounding way more than the instruments that comprise it! The group's led by Jerome Cooper on drums, balaphone, and other percussion – and features Joseph Jarman on tenor and flute ... LP, Vinyl record album
Life's Force
About Time, 1979. New Copy
LP...$7.99 11.99
A crowning moment of achievement for trumpeter Ahmed Abdullah – a record that draws on his rich experience working with Sun Ra, but focuses the energy into a warmer, more spiritual jazz setting overall! The album's a lost treasure from the US scene of the late 70s – a perfect melding ... LP, Vinyl record album
For Adolphe Sax
FMP/Cien Fuegos (Austria), 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A landmark album of free jazz – Peter Brotzmann's first record, and a hard-driving set of material that blows away most avant jazz work from the US at the time! The album takes the energy of the ESP generation, and turns it up more than a few notches – as Brotzmann blows his head off ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige/OJC, 1953/1954. New Copy (reissue)
A full length set that compiles earlier sessions cut under either the name of Thelonious Monk or Sonny Rollins – most of them together in the same group! At the time of recording, Monk was an established figure on the bop scene, but Rollins was still a fresh voiced up-and-comer – yet ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1964. New Copy (reissue)
Wahoo is right – as Duke Pearson sets up one of his hippest sessions of the 60s, a lyrical batch of soul jazz tracks, with that slight edge of darkness that he was putting into his best work as the decade progressed! Players include James Spaulding on alto and flute, Joe Henderson on tenor, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Solis Lacus
EMI/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1975. New Copy
A Fender Rhodes treasure – the one and only album from Solis Lacus – a hip 70s Belgian group who were contemporaries of Placebo – and work here in very similar modes! The album's resplendent in Rhodes lines from Michel Herr – a great keyboardist with an excellent ear for ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sch8lhof
Trost (Austria), 2013. New Copy
The DKV in all its fierce, raw power – a blistering onslaught of sounds from Ken Vandermark on clarinet and tenor, Mats Gustafsson on tenor and baritone sax, Kent Kessler on bass, Massimo Pupillo on electric bass, and both Hamid Drake and Paal Nilssen-Love on drums! Although all players are ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cherchez La Femme (with bonus download)
Trost (Austria), 2014. New Copy
Sharp improvisations with a decidedly sonic sensibility – music that bridges between free jazz and much more textural moments! The group features Ken Vandermark on reeds – sometimes blowing with forward-moving lines that are plenty bold – sometimes stepping back to merge with the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Heavy Axe
Fantasy, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
Although he's best known for his albums on Capitol, David Axelrod cut this great record for Fantasy during the mid-70s, and it features Cannonball Adderley producing Axelrod's work (instead of the other way around, as on Cannonball's albums from the time). The tracks here are a bit more jazz funk ... LP, Vinyl record album
Into The Light (Greece), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy
A prime set of rare material from Greek electronic music pioneer Vangelis Katsoulis! Sleeping Beauties rouses some great pieces from rare releases original released in 1987 and 1990 – plus some equally strong unreleased material from that period – and couple of more recent recordings. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Musique Mondiale/Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1982. New Copy (reissue)
An amazing mix of modes from the Super Djata Band – a record that has deep Malian roots in the rhythms, but which also offers up some key electric touches on guitar – served up here with plenty of lead solos from Zani Diabate! And when we say "lead", we don't mean the kind of ... LP, Vinyl record album
