Tremendous work from this young group – a set that embraces a range of modern jazz traditions, then pushes them forward strongly to the next generation! The lineup here features some of the sharpest talents of the current Windy City underground – James Falzone on clarinet, Jason Adasiewicz on vibes, Jason Roebke on bass, and Tim Daisy on drums – all players who feel each others' strengths instantly, and find ways of coming together that are even greater than the sum of the already-strong parts! Falzone's clarinet is especially amazing – a fresh new voice on the instrument that pushes past even John Carter or Jimmy Giuffre – showing us that the instrument can really carve strong modern lines, when in the right hands. Adasiewicz's vibes are always a treat – and ring out beautifully – and both Roebke and Daisy have the right sort of freewheeling rhythms to set even more fire to the other two players. Titles include "Ukranian Village", "Carol's Burgers", "Chicago Spaces", "Brooklyn Lines", "Jazz Searching Self", and "Alone At The Brain".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Jag Skulle Bara Ga Ut
Moserobie (Sweden), 2013. New Copy
Amazing vibes from Mattias Stahl and his trio – easily one of the most inventive players on his instrument in recent years – ringing out here with a sense of tone and timing that's simply superb! There's a modern edge to all these tracks that takes us back to Teddy Charles' vibes ... CD
Stunt (Denmark), 1969. New Copy
Never-heard work from tenorist Bent Jaedig – easily one of the most important figures on the Danish jazz scene in the 60s! Bent's working here in a loose, open style that's quite different from some of his more tightly arranged albums of the decade – a mode that's still got lots of ... CD
Sixth Sense
Sound Soul & Spirit (UK), 1999. New Copy
The earliest work we've ever heard from tenorist Nat Birchall – a player who's really blown our minds with his recent albums from the UK! This set's from the late 90s, and already has Birchall really finding his voice – a freewheeling approach to tenor that's unlike most of his ... CD
Mysteries (LP sleeve edition)
Tzadik, 2013. New Copy
A really wonderful little record – one headed up by John Zorn, but actually featuring instrumentation from the trio of Bill Frisell on guitar, Kenny Wollesen on vibes, and Carol Emanuel on harp! The mix of instruments is wonderful – and rings out here with gentle progressions that ... CD
BYG/Charly (UK), 1969. New Copy
A tremendous bit of jazz history – 2 classic Archie Shepp albums on 1 CD! Yasmina features Archie Shepp at his spiritual best – recording in Paris in 1969, and absorbing a heck of a lot of pan-African influences! The centerpiece of the album is the amazing "Yasmina" – ... CD
Spirit Dance
Impulse/Soul Jazz (UK), 1972. New Copy
One of the killer albums that Michael White cut for Impulse Records in the early 70 – a sweet set of spiritual jazz that took his instrument to a whole new level! Normally, the violin isn't an instrument we love in jazz, but White really transforms it here – playing it with a stretched- ... CD
Soul Summit – Vols 1 & 2
Prestige (Germany), 1962. New Copy
The brain trust of soul jazz in the early 60s – led by tenorist Gene Ammons on both albums! Soul Summit Volume one features Ammons and Sonny Stitt on tenor, plus Jack McDuff on Hammond – a definite soul summit for the time – with 3 top-shelf players in the lead, all getting ... CD
Heavyweight
Freestyle (UK), 2013. New Copy
A definite heavyweight set from Frootful – one that's every bit as funky as before, but which also shows the group picking up some new flavors too! At the core is some tight deep funk energy that makes the whole thing crackle – and there's also a great blend of different soulful ... CD
MCA/Purpose, 1979. New Copy
A dancefloor soul classic – one of the strongest albums ever by Al Hudson, Alicia Meyers, and the whole One Way crew! The record's got a sweet soulful feel that provides a nice counterpoint to its bass-heavy grooves – popping along at that midtempo pace that was Al's popular remedy for ... CD
RCA/Bluebird, Mid 50s. New Copy
One of Lena Horne's greatest albums of the 50s – a rock-solid effort that takes its name from her famous film appearance of the 40s, but which features some wonderfully sophisticated songs in a very postwar mode! As with other RCA dates of the time, the orchestra's handled by Lena's partner ... CD
