Sanctified, indeed – and just the kind of record to show why Slide Hampton was unlike any of his trombone-playing contemporaries! The set's got a tightness and punch that's really unique – not the compact quality of JJ Johnson and Kai Winding, but also not the hardbop of Curtis Fuller either – instead king of a rousing approach to jazz trombone that really makes Hampton the kind of the soul jazz approach to the instrument! Slide's working here with a cool octet that has the focus of a group half their size – a really well-chosen lineup of young, hip players that includes George Coleman on tenor sax, Hobart Dotson and Richard Williams on trumpets, Larry Ridley on bass, and additional trombone from a y oung Charles Greenlee! Titles include "El Sino", "Ow", "Milestones", and the stormin' title cut "Somethin Sanctified".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Push Push
Embryo (Japan), 1971. New Copy
One of Herbie Mann's biggest albums – and one of his funkiest too! The cover's a bit of an off-putter – although it probably helped sell the record, back in the day – but the grooves are as rock-solid as anything that Herbie cut at the time – tight, focused, and a perfect ... CD

Warner (Japan), 1962. New Copy
A really unique little chapter in the career of Shorty Rogers – and a near-lost record that's one of his best from the 60s! As you might guess from the title, the set was recorded as a sort of "stereo dynamics" album – post-bachelor pad, but in a mode that was very concerned ... CD

Indo-Jazz Fusions
Atlantic (Japan), 1967. New Copy
The best of British modern jazz meets the world of post-colonial music on the London scene – and the result is a groundbreaking blend of cultural styles! Reedman Joe Harriott and his trumpeter Shake Keane both brought a fresh West Indian sensibility to the London scene in the 50s – and ... CD

Prairie Dog
Atlantic (Japan), 1966. New Copy
Dark genius from Duke Pearson – quite possibly one of his hippest records ever, and an album that's filled with surprising twists and turns! At one level, the set seems to be a simple batch of soul jazz tunes – in the mode of Pearson's mid-60s classics on Blue Note – but at ... CD

Live At Montreux
Atlantic (Japan), 1972. New Copy
The 70s genius of Les McCann – opened up here wonderfully in the space of a double-length live performance! Tracks are all nice and long – and Les steps out strongly on Fender Rhodes and clavinet, ringing out with amazing tones that are really wonderful – kind of the electric ... CD

Rising Son
Blue Note, 2014. New Copy
A rising sun from the Jose James side of the universe – trumpeter Takuya Kuroda, stepping out here in a wonderful debut for Blue Note! You've heard Kuroda play with Jose James over the years, but he comes up with a rich new groove here on his own – a mostly-instrumental mode that has ... CD

Love Songs Of Ian Ops
I Am, 2013. New Copy
Beautiful work from pianist Larry Gelb – and a set that's as evocative as its title! Gelb balances his own great compositions with a host of well-chosen older numbers – standards, but tunes that are reworked here to fit in alongside the personal voice he brings to his own music – ... CD
