A landmark New York session from Dollar Brand – recorded in the late 70s, with a larger group than usual! Brand spins out some really magical African-tinged jazz grooves – stretching forth in his usual modal mode, with lots of rhythmic lines – but in a way that's also augmented by wonderful horn work from Don Cherry on trumpet, Carlos Ward on alto sax, and Hamiet Bluiett on baritone and clarinet! The album's got a very strong percussive component – thanks to work from Roy Brooks, Claude Jones, and John Betsch – who work here with the great bass of Johnny Dyani, to give the record a bit more fire than Brand's other material of the period. One track on the album gets quite free, and titles include "Sister Rosie", "Jabulani" and "Hajj".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1972. New Copy
One of Larry Coryell's greatest albums ever! Barefoot Boy is a much more expansive session than some of Coryell's others, fueled in part by the spiritual intensity of the Impulse Records generation. It's got a momentum that's pretty darn exciting throughout – but the compositions are nice ... CD
