4.90 5

Rare solo piano work from the great Joe Albany – heard here in a beautifully unfettered setting! There's a fluid sort of magic here – that special quality that Albany was always cited for in his piano work, but which unfortunately was tragically under-recorded over the years. Most tunes are quite short, and have an echoey quality that's quite striking – a sense of room and space that comes from the recording, and which seems to fold back the sound and make Albany's moves on the keys even more striking. Titles include "Bluebird", "Slow Blues In F", "How Deep Is The Ocean", "Jitterbug Waltz", "Old Old Friends", "Woody N You", and "For Heaven's Sake".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Mugen/Think (Japan), 1987. New Copy
A great live date from tenor genius Steve Grossman – done at a time when he'd fallen a bit out of the limelight of jazz, but when he was also recording some of his best work in years! Grossman's really full of fire and energy here – spinning out long lines, and blowing with the kind of ... CD

Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1974. New Copy

Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1977. New Copy
Beautiful alto from Yoshio Otmo – a player who brings an old school style of soul to his horn, but who also works here in the leaner, more modern mode of the Three Blind Mice label! The title track starts the album off with a wonderful sense of bite – a brilliant take on "Moon ... CD

Sensitive solo material from pianist Kunihiko Sugano – a set that features shorter tracks than some of his trio albums of the time, but done with an equal amount of feeling! Sugano's got this gentle, spacious touch on the piano – a bit like Bill Evans, but also with phrasing that might ... CD

Soaring grooves from Sean McCabe – the artists' debut on the mostly-reissue Z Records, but a set that also puts him in the same sort of classic territory as his labelmates, the Sunburst Band! Sean's groove is filled with classic club touches, but is also a bit more contemporary – the ... CD

Sublime Frequencies, 1970s. New Copy
A very hip collection of Algerian work from the 70s – work that predates some of the more familiar rai from the 80s, served up with a much rougher style overall! The instrumentation here is all tied strongly to the rhythms – horn parts and guitar lines that romp just as much as the ... CD
