A totally unique, totally mindblowing album from Erroll Garner – and the set that made us finally fall in love with his music forever! Sure, Garner can be great on other albums – but here, he's really hitting this amazing vibe – stretching out in this rhythmic way that pushes his style and agenda even more than before – so much so that the flurry of sharp, angular notes really leaves us breathless – and almost bridges on much more modern avant playing at certain moments! Plus, Erroll also plays some harpsichord – which sounds wonderfully weird and totally offbeat in the hands of his technique – in a way that only sharpens and intensifies all the elements that were always in his music. The whole thing is incredibly striking – and although Ed Calhoun plays bass and Kelly Martin plays percussion, Garner's power on both keyboards drives the whole record from the top right down to the bottom. Titles include "French Doll", "Don't Look For Me", "Louise", "Farewell To Paris", "Left Bank Swing", "Paris Blues", "Paris Midnight", "Paris Bounce", "Moroccan Quarter", and "La Petite Mambo". (6 eye pressing, with deep groove. Cover has some light wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Journey To Love
Columbia, 1975. Very Good
Stanley Clarke may be on a journey to love – but that doesn't mean that the album's too sweet or romantic! Many tracks here still have the harder edge and sharper lines you'd expect from Clarke's key 70s fusion reputation – the kind of rock-influenced styles that crossed over big at ...

Columbia, 1962. Sealed
Paul Winter's classic sextet is recorded here in both Rio and New York – one of three different sessions that Winter cut for Columbia in the 60s – all records that explore his own love of the bossa at a time when it was coincidentally very good business to be doing so! Tracks are light ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mr Gone
Columbia, 1978. Very Good+
A great late 70s set from Weather Report – a record that's certainly got more polish than the early years, but which still sounds plenty darn great to our ears – thanks to a really free-flowing sense of imagination! The tunes here have a wonderfully chunky sort of approach to the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Motion
Verve, Early 60s. Very Good Gatefold
A pivotal album in the career of Lee Konitz – and one that shows him really stretching out, past his tightly arranged style of the 50s! Lee's working here in a fairly free trio setting – backed by only Sonny Dallas on bass and Elvin Jones on drums. Jones plays loosely and openly on ... LP, Vinyl record album
