4.80 5

An excellent live set by the Jazz Messengers – recorded in Paris in 1958, but with a hard heavy groove that's right up there with their best Blue Note work from the US! The group at th is time plays hard, heavy, and straight ahead – no surprise, given that the lineup is killer – with a young Lee Morgan on trumpet and Bobby Timmons on piano, plus tenor from Benny Golson – who was making a key appearance with the group during this time. Golson's writing is definitely a part of the group's sound here – but Timmons' influence is definitely felt, too – and titles include "Moanin", "Justice", "Just By Myself", "I Remember Clifford", and "Are You Real". CD also features the bonus cuts "Whisper Not" and "Blues March".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

ESP, Late 60s. New Copy
One of the coolest, weirdest records ever issued on the legendary ESP label in the 60s – and an album that really sums up the East Village crossroads from which the imprint sprang! The music here is a mad melange of art rock, hippie folk, sound samples, and avant jazz – all presented ... CD

Bethlehem, 1955. New Copy
One of the rare key albums cut by bassist Oscar Pettiford as a leader – an excellent 10" session for the Bethlehem label from the 50s! Although best known as a bassist, Pettiford was also a heck of a great player on the cello – which he uses here alongside bass! Pettiford's ... CD

Bethlehem, 1960. New Copy
A really great little set from Zoot Sims – earthy, and almost a bit more fragile than much of his other work! There's a real "down home" feel to the whole record – as Zoot blows comfortably and easily in a quartet with Dave McKenna on piano, George Tucker on bass, and Dannie ... CD

A rising sun from the Jose James side of the universe – trumpeter Takuya Kuroda, stepping out here in a wonderful debut for Blue Note! You've heard Kuroda play with Jose James over the years, but he comes up with a rich new groove here on his own – a mostly-instrumental mode that has ... CD
