4.60 5

Sublime trio work from pianist Stanley Cowell – a player who's held us rapt with attention for decades – and continues to earn our faith with great records like this! The album features Cowell on piano, and a bit of kalimba – which is mighty nice – working with bassist Tom DiCarlo and drummer Chris Brown – both younger players who really seem to get Cowell's groove, especially in the more complicated moments – of which there are a few. The set begins with two great originals by Stanley – "Cosmology" and "El Space O" – then moves into the great "Asian Art Suite", which is really one of the most unusual, exotic things we've heard from Cowell in years! That music is then offset by the long "Civil Rights Suite" – which has bolder overtones to match its social message – and the set then concludes with two more standalone compositions by Cowell – "Long Vamp" and the classic "Abstrutions".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Beautiful work from this overlooked team – and maybe the best showcase we've ever heard for the alto sax work of Dick Oatts! The album features just Oatts on sax and Harold Danko on piano – a sound that's surprisingly soulful, even when spare – as Oatts has this way of blowing ... CD

Mostly Music
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2014. New Copy
The first album we've ever heard from alto saxophonist Paolo Sapia – a very fresh-voiced talent with a great sense of soul! Most numbers here are quartet titles that really let Sapia shape his notes with a soulful swing on the instrument that we haven't heard from a new altoist like this in ... CD

Super Mann
Atlantic (Japan), 1978. New Copy
A wonderful 70s set from Herbie Mann – and one that features some heavy help from P&P maestro Patrick Adams! The album's more of an Adams-directed affair than the usual Herbie set – as Adams produced and arranged all the tracks, and really takes Mann in the direction of a hip late ... CD

Teasin'
Atlantic (Japan), 1974. New Copy
The first album as a leader by guitarist Cornell Dupree – but one that was recorded after years of jazz, soul, and rock session and sideman work during the 60s and 70s! It's great to finally hear Cornell get out in front of the mix – hitting those lean, stretched-out lines that always ... CD

Atlantic (Japan), 1974. New Copy
Heavy-jamming fusion from Billy Cobham – done at a time when he was already cutting plenty of heavy-jamming fusion! The album was recorded live in Switzerland and London – all very much in a post Bitches Brew approach to jazz that has all players going pedal to the metal in pursuit of ... CD

Funky Thide Of Sings
Atlantic (Japan), 1975. New Copy
Billy Cobham's always got something funky going on in his music – and this 70s classic for Atlantic Records has the drummer at the height of his powers – really mixing together jazz, rock, and funk impulses – all without some of the overindulgence of his more jamming records of ... CD

Sunbelt
Atlantic (Japan), 1978. New Copy
Sweet electric work from Herbie Mann – a surprisingly nice little record, despite a cheesy title and cover! The set's got a way deeper groove than the resort image might make you think – and Herbie's working here with a hip lineup that includes Roy Ayers on vibes, Richard Tee on ... CD

Honky Tonk A-La Mod!
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1966. New Copy
The soulful Hammond of Bill Doggett gets a sweet shift for the 60s – hitting a mod jazz mode that Bill no doubt inspired by his groundbreaking work of the 50s! The groove here is nicely snapping – in a space between soul instrumental work and jazz, with lots of tight guitar from Billy ... CD
