Don't think "violin", just think "bass" – as the group's made up of some great jazz bass players – all working together to use their instruments in a richly expressive way! The group is almost to jazz bass what the Piano Choir was a few years before – using ... CD
A string trio, but one with a sound that's way more than you might expect – neither a staid style from classical forms, nor a gimmicky approach to jazz without horns or drums – and instead, a really open, free sort of sound – just what we'd expect from a group that features work ... CD
Modernist clarinet at its best – handled deftly by Peter Kuhn, in a range of modes that moves between hard-swinging jazz and much more spacious, sonic textures! Kuhn plays both standard and bass clarinet – using the latter with an especially great sound that reminds us of some of the ... CD
A 2CD set that brings together two albums that Lee Konitz cut with the trio of Marial Solal in 1968 – originally issued only very briefly in Europe on the small Campi label, and some of Konitz' most groundbreaking work of the 60s! Solal had been transforming the sound of jazz piano for most ... CD
A great ode to Dannie Richmond's longtime musical partner Charles Mingus – who'd passed shortly before this session – done with styles and sounds that are quite different than some of Richmond's other work! The album's got a definite blue tone – Richmond really feeling Mingus' ... CD
Proof again that Billy Bang is one of our favorite jazz musicians to ever pick up a violin – because Bang has a way of handling the instrument that opens up into grooves unlike anyone else! The set's got a beautifully flowing, almost spiritual sound at times – one that has Bang getting ... CD
A double-length set from the 360 Degree Music Experience – and one of their greatest recordings as well! The group's co-led by drummer Beaver Harris and keyboardist Dave Burrell – who here plays organ and celeste, in addition to his usual piano. And other players are a range of 70s ... CD
David Murray in some really wonderful company here – playing both tenor and bass clarinet on a highly percussive date that features work from Sunny Murray and Kahil El'Zabar! Murray handles straight drums, and Kahil works with a host of percussion – very much in the same soulful spirit ... CD
Sound, space, and a hell of a lot more – as Roscoe Mitchell really stretches the limits of his sound on this one – working in different ensemble formats through a variety of musical modes! A few tracks on the set feature Mitchell at his most academic – spare, contemplative, and ... CD
One of the strongest albums from the Leaders sextet – an ensemble that features 6 of America's best left-of-center players of the time – all of them leaders of their own groups, putting aside ego to come together beautifully here! The set features Lester Bowie on trumpet, Arthur Blythe ... CD
Searingly soulful work from Hamiet Bluiett – easily one of his greatest sessions of the late 70s, and a record that has a sense of focus that's sometimes missing from his other work! The group on the set includes Don Pullen, Fred Hopkins, Billy Hart, and Don Moye – coming together with ... CD
A beautiful suite of tracks dedicated to the four elements – composed and arranged by Italian bassist Marcello Melis – and performed by him with a quartet that includes Don Moye on percussion, Don Pullen on piano, and Sandro Satta on alto sax. The work's got a quality that really seems ... CD
