A great follow-up to the initial News For Lulu project – a late 80s reinvention of the sound of Blue Note, handled by this trio of key modernists from the time! As proven by recordings like this over the years, John Zorn's a player who – despite his own very modern and avant tendencies – has a great respect for older jazz traditions, and a strong ability to bring them into his music – even if the connections aren't always that obvious! Here, the link is explicit – in the album's choice of tunes by Hank Mobley, Sonny Clark, Kenny Dorham, John Patton, and Freddie Redd – all Blue Note legends from the hardbop generation, providing core elements that are completely reworked into modern showcases for the alto of Zorn, guitar of Bill Frisell, and trombone of George Lewis. Lewis' presence is especially great – a rhythmic pulse and sense of depth that really grounds the session nicely. The CD features material from two live performances – and titles include "Melody For C", "News For Lulu", "Funk In Deep Freeze", "Gare Guillemins", "Hank's Other Tune", "Minor Swing", and "Peckin Time".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Kenya/Shout (Japan), 1978. New Copy
A very hip group from the 70s Philly scene – a jazz combo who've got a soulful swing and a wonderfully lyrical feel! The record has a bit of vocals, but really just added in as flavoring for the quartet's excellent instrumental interplay – a blend of tenor and flute with piano, bass, ... CD

Relentless
Posi tone, 2014. New Copy Gatefold
A stunning large ensemble set from trombonist Michael Dease – the first we've ever heard from him in this format, and a record that brings us back to some of the most inventive bigger bands of the late 60s – such as groups by Duke Pearson, or the team of Thad Jones & Mel Lewis! No ... CD

Historically Speaking
Bethlehem, 1956. New Copy
The album's a bit less "historical" than you might guess from the title – at least at the time it was issued in the mid 50s! The material is from Chicago sessions recorded in 1956 – unusual non-Columbia material for the period, featuring the Ellington group working in a ... CD

Strata East/Think (Japan), 1973. New Copy Gatefold
A highly percussive little album – and the first-ever appearance of the M'Boom ensemble on record! You might know the group from their later fame under the guidance of Max Roach, but here the combo is a much more equally-assembled cast of players – featuring not just Roach, but ... CD

Blaster/Shout (Japan), 1981. New Copy
The only full album we've ever seen from Tony Fox – a singer we know best for much earlier singles, including a few classics in a real deep soul vein! This album, though, has more of a club-oriented sound – an early 80s indie vibe, with lots of modern soul arrangements which work very ... CD

Peggy Connelly
Bethlehem, 1956. New Copy
One of the greatest vocal jazz albums ever recorded for Bethlehem Records – a set that's got a lot more energy than some of the moodier, mellow vocal sets on the label – thanks to dynamic backings from the great Russ Garcia! Garcia's working here with his hip Wigville band – ... CD

Fantastic Voyage
La La Land, 1966. New Copy
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from Leonard Rosenman – and a key example of his strong talent for mixing acoustic instrumentation with very offbeat and eerie electronics! Rosenman had offered up this blend on other important science soundtracks of the 60s – but probably hit his ... CD
