Renaissance

Gatefold

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

A massively sweet groover from Lonnie and the Cosmic Echoes – smoother and warmer than some of his earlier albums, with a really soulful fusion vibe! Lonnie plays acoustic piano and "electric colorations" – working with a group that includes brother Donald on flute and vocals, Dave Hubbard on trumpet, and Leon Pendarvis on clavinet – and the whole thing's got a laidback, superdope feel that shows Lonnie totally at the top of his game! There's still a nice degree of spirituality to the set, and titles include "Renaissance", "Space Lady", "Between Here & There", "Mardis Gras", "Starlight & You", "Song Of Love", and "Mongotee". (Cover has some light staining & a peeled spot on the back.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Horn's Full
RCA, 1958. Near Mint-
A great set, and one of the few obscure sides of west coast jazz from Jack Montrose (not to be confused with east coast player JR Montrose). Shorty Rogers supervised the session, and the album features some open-ended tracks done in quintet format that are similar to some of Shorty's best work for ... LP, Vinyl record album
Collaboration (original cover)
RCA, 1954. Very Good- Gatefold
A rare mid 50s collaboration between pianist Andre Previn and trumpeter Shorty Rogers – an instrumental collaboration between the pair – one that's mostly set up in the mode of Rogers style of the time with his Giants group – but which also really sparkles tremendously with the ...

New Conception
Blue Note, Mid 60s. Very Good
A mindblowing moment from the young Sam Rivers – and definitely a set that warrants the "new conception" of the title! Unlike some of Rivers' other material of the time, which often featured original inventive compositions, this set's based around classic standards – but all ... LP, Vinyl record album
Basie Meets Bond
United Artists, Late 60s. Near Mint-
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
