A great solo set from pianist Spike Wilner – the driving force behind the whole Smalls Live series as a producer, but a hell of a musician as well! Wilner's got a great style that draws strongly from jazz piano tradition, but really makes things his own – using strands of 20th century technique on the keys, yet inflecting them with a wonderfully personal voice – a sound that's far more introspective than you might guess at the outset, and which really has us rapt in ways that are different than the experience we get from other contemporary piano solo albums. Titles include "All Too Soon", "Elite Syncopations", "Echoes Of Spring", "Gone With The Wind", "Lullaby Of The Leaves", "Tea For Two", and "Bodhisattva Blues".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Schema (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy
Very very very cool stuff from Italy in the 70's. This tight little combo featuring Fender Rhodes, electric bass, and congas lays down some super tight grooves with a very deep, very funky, very laid back feel. Originally intended for soundtrack use in TV and commercials, this disc has finally ... CD

A raw, live set from Chicago saxophonist David Boykin – but a great little record that really reminds us of a classic 60s session on ESP! Boykin's reeds are wonderful throughout – filled with the depth of soul we might expect from Kalaparusha or Albert Ayler – and set up here in ... CD
