A wonderfully moody album from Abbey Lincoln – one that's a bit more laidback than some of her other efforts, but no less soulful! There's kind of a broken, jagged sound to the record – a late nite vibe that's blue and melancholy, and which gets some great support from the tenor sax of Archie Shepp – which often gets a chance to solo on most tracks! The rhythms are gentle, often a bit spare – and handled by Hilton Ruiz on piano, Jack Gregg on bass, and Freddie Waits on drums – and the set also features work from trumpeter Roy Burroughs. Tracks include three original compositions, "Painted Lady", "Throw It Away", and "Caged Bird", plus a sublime version of Stevie Wonder's "Golden Lady". Also includes Ellington's "Sophisticated Lady", and Michel Legrand's "What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Greenleaf, 2013. New Copy

One of the best albums we've heard in years from trumpeter Dave Douglas – a really in the pocket session that's filled with rhythmic intensity, and some of the boldest music we've heard from Dave in years! There's plenty of edges to the set – especially the trumpet of Douglas and tenor ... CD
Comin' At You
Seeco, Early 60s. New Copy
The young Joe Cuba's coming on plenty strong here – working with a stripped-down sextet that was his answer to the larger, stuffier Latin groups of the previous generation! Cuba's combo has plenty of fire right from the start – and a sublime mix of jazz and percussion that's a key link ... CD
Oriole/Vocalion (UK), 1956/1957. New Copy
Great early work from Johnny Keating – 2 albums back to back on a single CD! British Jazz is some of the earliest work as a leader from the swinging Keating – one of England's finest jazz arrangers of the 50s, working here in a looser style than on his classic Keating Sound albums from ... CD
