Maybe the greatest album we've ever heard from trumpeter Till Bronner – a beautiful tribute to the 70s sound of Freddie Hubbard – recorded with instrumentation that's heavy on Fender Rhodes, and these soaring solos that are simply the greatest we've ever heard Bronner play! There's a perfection to the record that may well even go past Freddie's classics for CTI – a sense of solid, soulful sounds throughout – with not a moment of filler, and a great mix of originals from Bronner that really capture the Hubbard vibe – mixed with a few others that further the essence. The whole thing's wonderful – a killer contemporary set, but with a richly vintage feel too – no vocals, no remixes, or any of the other things that you might find on other Bronner albums. Titles include "Will Of Nature", "FFH", "Return To The Fold", "Gibraltar", "Once Upon A Summertime", "Condor", "Pegasus", "Red Street", "Wacky Wes", and "The Gate". Limited deluxe edition features a bonus CD – with the tracks "Till's Blues", "Body & Soul", and "Little Sunflower".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Amiga (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
A heavy serving of jazz from Amiga Records – the East German stalwart who did plenty to keep the music going on their side of the Iron Curtain! Some of the work here is in a trad mode – and shows that after the war, the older style found a great home in Eastern Europe – but as ... 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
Verve (Germany), 1962/1965. New Copy
Two great ones as a leader from bassist Ray Brown – back to back on a single CD! All Star Big Band is a standout session from Brown – one of a few 60s big band sessions recorded for Verve, featuring some searing solo work from Cannonball Adderley! Brown's name as a leader is possibly ... CD
Retrospektive 100 x Jazz In Der Kammer
Amiga (Germany), 1972. New Copy
A big, bold ensemble from the more remote years of the East German jazz scene – a group led by pianist Ulrich Gumpert, but which features some especially strong interplay from a large array of reeds and brass! The sound is experimental, but never too outside – and unlike other jazz ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1953. New Copy
Tremendous early work from Japanese pianist Toshiko Akioshi – recorded during her initial years in the US, and with a bop-heavy style that makes Toshiko one of the hardest-hitting female players of her generation! The Bud Powell influence is very strong here, but Akioshi's also showing a ... CD
Trombone Jazz Samba/Samba Para Dos
Verve (Germany), 1962. New Copy
Pure genius throughout – two great albums on a single CD! Trombone Jazz Samba is an overlooked gem from Bob Brookmeyer – and a set that fits in strongly with the other Verve Records bossa nova albums of the 60s! Bob's the center star on valve trombone, but the record's awash in work ... CD
Verve (Germany), Early 60s. New Copy
Some of the coolest work Kai Winding ever recorded – two very odd albums, back to back on a single CD! Soul Surfin is hardly the trombone jazz outing you might have guessed from Kai's famous work with JJ Johnson – and instead, an electrified set that's got plenty of cool 60s touches! ... CD
Transparency, 1970. New Copy 3CD
A wonderful illustration of the way that each Sun Ra concert could be a completely unique experience – as you'll hear in this amazing performance from 1970! The set was recorded at the Red Garter, and has the group coming together wonderfully on these long tracks that showcase both the ... CD
Fenix
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1971. New Copy
One of Gato's best! The record's neither too out, nor too poppy – and it has Barbieri playing with that incredible raspy tone – and working over modal grooves laid down by a hip group that includes Lonnie Liston Smith on acoustic and electric pianos, Ron Carter on bass, Lennie White on ... CD
Purdie Good/Shaft
Prestige/BGP (UK), 1971/1972. New Copy
2 funky classics from the legendary Pretty Purdie! Purdie Good is Bernard Purdie's first album as a leader for Prestige – cut right after he'd hipped up plenty of other sessions for the label with his famous funky drums! The groove here is very much in the best Prestige jazz funk mode of ... CD
