Charles Earland — Great Pyramid (plus bonus track) ... CD 12.99

One of the most spiritual, soulful albums ever from the great Charles Earland – a set that's almost his answer to the keyboard styles of Lonnie Liston Smith in the 70s – and done with a very spiritual vibe! We love Earland on Hammond – but here he also plays Fender Rhodes, clavinet, moog, and Arp – never to excess – blended with the sort of full, soaring arrangements you might get from someone like Larry Mizell or Skip Scarbrough at the time! Many numbers feature vocals in the mix, but also showcase lots of keyboard solos too – again like Smith – and the album's got a sense of style, power, and ambition that really make us respect Earland even more – especially given that he handled most of the writing, arranging, and production. Titles include "Upper Atlantis", "In The Land Of Mu", "Drifting", "Mona Lisa", and "The Great Pyramid".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Black Power
Rare Bird, Late 60s. Very Good-
A great set of early tracks by Charles Earland – most likely recorded in Philly before his years with Prestige, issued afterwards to cash in on his fame! The label bills Charles as "organ playing Charles Earland" – just in case there's a mistake – but there's no ... LP, Vinyl record album

Black Talk!
Prestige, 1970. Very Good-
A pivotal album in the development of the use of the Hammond organ in jazz – and Charles Earland's first exposure to a large audience! Durign the 60s, Charles was bumping around the Philly scene quite a bit – and recorded some small group indie sides that first gave a glimpse of his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Live At The Lighthouse
Prestige, 1972. Very Good+
A real killer from Earland! The record swings incredibly hard, with a tight jazzy groove that sounds like his early work for Prestige from the first few albums. The band includes lesser known players like trumpeter Elmer Coles, alto player James Vass, and conga player Kenneth Nash – but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1958. Very Good
Hard swinging big band material from Sweden – featuring the big band of Harry Arnold arranged by Quincy Jones. Quincy had been spending a lot of time in Sweden during the mid 50s – bringing with him a host of great players that would soon become big names on the European scene. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball's Sharpshooters
Mercury, 1958. Very Good+
A set that's right on target, right from the start – and one that has the young Cannonball Adderley really coming into his groove! The set's a lot more soul jazz-oriented than some of Cannon's records from a few years before – played by a rock-solid group that includes brother Nat ... LP, Vinyl record album

Coup De Graas
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good+
One of the weird LPs that French Horn player John Graas made in the 50's, featuring that cumbersome instrument in a set of surprisingly light and loose jazz tracks. Graas' playing on the French Horn is a bit like Gerry Mulligan's on the baritone – that is, he takes these turns and twists ... LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy takes his Swinging Shepherds crew to the movies on this one – serving up a set of tunes from 40s and 50s films that all come off perfectly with the group's multi-flute approach! The sound's nicely mellow at times, but still has that tightly arranged west coast modern style that made ... LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1963. Very Good- Gatefold
Unlike the mellower Breeze from the East LP (another Tjader "eastern" session), this one's got some very lively Latiny stuff – despite the orientalist theme of the LP. There's a monster version of Horace Silver's "Tokyo Blues", plus takes of Lalo Schifrin's "The ... LP, Vinyl record album
