Night Fire

LP (Item 46190) Capitol, 1979 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

A stone classic from Bobby Lyle – and a record that really has him stepping out strongly, both as a keyboardist and a singer! Bobby's strength at this point is undeniable – and he's got a perfect sense of balance that rivals contemporaries like Roy Ayers or Webster Lewis – both of whom work in a similarly jazzy groove! Lyle plays some great Fender Rhodes on the set – plus other more way-out keyboards too – and production is by the At-Home team, who really know how to bring in a strong sense of focus to the grooves, while still letting the best jazzy elements flourish. Titles include "Space Place", "Stop Running Away From Love", "Getting Into Love", "Dream Lady", "Stop Running Away From Love", and "For Love". (Includes the lyric sleeve. Cover has some wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Shifting Winds
Capitol, 1955. Very Good
Bob Cooper's smooth LA tenor is set in a band of "shifting wind" players like Jimmy Giuffre, Bud Shank, and Bob Enevoldson – along with other Kentonites like Shelly Manne and Stu Williamson. Kenton produced and presented this session, and it's one of the classic Capitol series ... LP, Vinyl record album

Black Messiah
Capitol, Early 70s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
One of Cannonball's best, and wildest, from the Capitol/David Axelrod years. The set was recorded live at The Troubadour in LA, and the music's a wild mix of funk, jazz, and noise, with Cannonball on alto, Nat on cornet, George Duke on piano, Walter Booker on bass, and Airto on percussion. Roy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Live Session!
Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint-
An excellent jazz vocal album by one of the lost greats! Ernie Andrews was always a musician's singer – in that he never cracked the masses, but did have tremendous respect among jazz players in the 60s and 70s. Here, in one of his best albums, he's caught live, working with Cannon's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Trisection
Capitol, 1963. Very Good+
A brilliant bit of modern jazz from Sweden – surprisingly issued by Capitol in the US, during a period when they were picking up overseas sides from players like Martial Solal and Joe Harriott. Lindberg plays piano, and leads a large group that includes Eje Thelin on trombone, Idrees ... LP, Vinyl record album

Touch Of Blue
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good
Weirdly groovy stuff from Jonah Jones – playing here in his usual pop-gospel-swing style, but with backing by a set of voices that gives that album a nice full sound. The vocal group isn't nearly as soporific as those used on other pop/jazz albums from the time, and they have a nice lilting ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good-
Wonderful small combo grooving from pianist Paul Smith – an unsung hero of the west coast scene, with a talent that balanced easily between jazz and cocktail – with the best styles of both firmly intact! This album's one of his best – as mellow and drifting as the title might ... LP, Vinyl record album

3 Sounds
Blue Note, 1971. Very Good
The last Three Sounds album for Blue Note – and the funkiest too – thanks to lots more electrification than usual, and some killer arrangements from the mighty Monk Higgins! Monk's really at the top of his game here – going past even his great previous work for the group, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jaco Pastorius
Epic, 1976. Very Good+
This is the one that really nailed it for Jaco Pastorious – a brilliant showcase for all his many talents on the bass, and a key illustration of the way that he influenced an entire generation! Sure, Jaco in Weather Report was already pretty darn great – but here, on his own, he really ... LP, Vinyl record album
