4.80 5

A beautiful set of tributes to the legendary Albert Ayler – presented here in a series of improvisations from different assemblages of players – some solo, some duo, and some in larger groups – all working together in a legacy of sound that really takes off from the amazing tones and textures that Ayler first forged in the 60s! The range of musicians is as exciting as the music itself – and the performances feature reeds from Joe McPhee, Evan Parker, Urs Leimgruber, Raphael Imbert, John Tchicai, and Michel Portal – plus trumpet from Jean-Luc Cappozzo, bass from Joelle Leandre, Jean Jacques Avenel, and Barre Phillips, drums from Simon Goubert and Christian Rollet – and a mixture of sung and spoken passages from Lucia Recio, Steve Dalachinsky, and Jacqueline Caux.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Blue Note (Japan), 1997. New Copy

Cool Woods
Blue Note (Japan), 1999. New Copy
Nothing too cool here – just great soulful sounds from the mighty Phil Woods – blowing in a relaxed, easygoing setting that brings out some of his greatest tones from the time! Phil's got a combo here with Junko Onishi on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Bill Goodwin on drums – all ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1996. New Copy
No tricks, no gimmicks – just a set that's deeply respectful of all the sharp edges of Jackie McLean's years of work on alto sax, but which also has him nicely returning to the mainstream spotlight as well! By that, we don't mean that there's anything soft or commercial about the record ... CD
Rearward (Italy), 1967. New Copy
One of the few small group recordings ever cut by pianist Francy Boland – and a set that cooks every bit as much as his work with the larger Clarke Boland Big Band on MPS! The reason for the cooking is clear – Francy's got key rhythmic help from group members Jimmy Woode on bass and ... CD
