A great one from this all-star group – an incredibly righteous combo that's given Billy Harper one of his best chances to play in years! As with the previous album by The Cookers, the Harper influence really runs strong – not just in the use of some of his great tracks in the performance, but also in the way the tunes build and work together – that bold, powerful energy that Billy first unleashed on the world in the 70s – driven to new heights here by a lineup that also includes Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Craig Handy on alto sax, George Cables on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Billy Hart on drums! But key thanks should also go to trumpeter David Weiss – also in the group, and producer for the record – a great talent for getting these guys to work together so well. Titles include tunes by McBee, Cables, and Hart as well – with tracks that include "Ebony Moonbeams", "Believe For It Is True", "Free For All", "Quest", "But He Knows", "Tight Squeeze", and "Naaj".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A beautiful tribute to the compositional genius of Wayne Shorter – but served up at a level that goes way beyond Shorter's original vision for his music! Trumpeter David Weiss always does a great job of re-exploring the best modern sounds of the 60s – and here, he arranges some key ... CD

CD...$8.99 14.98
David Murray sounds plenty great here on his own – working in a core quartet that features organ and piano from Marc Cary – but a number of tracks also feature vocals from the wonderful Gregory Porter – an excellent singer who really matches the depth and spirit of Murray's music! ... CD

Mal 3 – Sounds
Prestige (Japan), 1958. New Copy
A really wonderful album from Mal Waldron – quite different than most of his other records from the 50s, and done with a righteous undercurrent that almost points the way towards the Strata East generation of the 70s! The set's one of Mal's few 50s albums as a leader to feature horns ... CD

Coolin'
New Jazz (Japan), 1957. New Copy
A moody session led by vibist Teddy Charles – in an amazing style that mixes up some of the hardbop styles of the Prestige blowing sessions with Charles' own modernist love of tone and color! The album's got a dark sensibility that really sets it apart from a lot of other Prestige albums of ... CD

Taylor's Tenors
Prestige/New Jazz (Japan), 1959. New Copy
Art Taylor's a drummer, but he gladly gives center stage here to the tenors – a great pairing of Frank Foster and Charlie Rouse, both of whom hit some of their hardest notes of the 50s on this date! The album's got a tighter quality than some of the more open-ended blowing session dates of ... CD
