Detroit Jazz Composers Ltd — Hastings St. Jazz Experience (2LP 180 gram pressing) ... LP 23.99

Sublime spiritual jazz from the 70s scene in Detroit – and a record that really represents an evolution of the previous sounds that you might have heard on the Motorcity's Tribe Records! The sound here is straightforward and soulful – a bit of electricity at the bottom and some fluidly gliding horn work on the top – plus some key vocals from a group that includes Kim Weston in the lead, supported by other female singers – in a righteous mode that really makes the best tunes sparkle! Other players include Phil Ranelin on trombone, Nasi Hafiz on vibes, Miller Brisker on tenor and piano, and Sylvia Truner on harp – all working together in a largeish group with the best spiritual energy of groups on Strata East! The whole thing's great – a beautiful lost treasure, and the kind of record that's rarely carried off so perfectly – and titles include "Song For M", "A Little Love For You", "Mark I", "Ja-Mil", "Nobody Had To Tell Me", "Arjuna", and "Now You're Gone".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

World Of Cecil Taylor
Candid, 1960. New Copy (reissue)
Cecil Taylor's first LP for the Candid label – and a landmark album that really lets him open up for the first time in years at a recording session!

For The Good Times
Prestige, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
One of Rusty Bryant's last albums for Prestige – recorded in that more-electric mode that graced the label's albums of the year 1973 – but in a style that's still pretty darn nice! The group's still a small combo – with Rusy on tenor and alto, plus with Hank Jones on electric ... LP, Vinyl record album

PA USA, 1979. New Copy (reissue)
One of Sam Rivers' most freely expressive albums – a set of extended improvisations that features the leader on tenor, soprano, flute, and piano – really spinning out with some strongly expressive solos!

Here & Now
Catalyst, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
Very different work than usual from Frank Foster – and pretty darn great! The album was put together by arranger Billy Mitchell – with a warm and sunny take on soul jazz that's every bit the best side of the Catalyst Records sound – kind of a sweeter, slightly electric take on ...

Iron Man
Douglas/Celluloid, 1962. New Copy (reissue)
A seminal set from Eric Dolphy – one of his most perfectly realized moments at the head of a larger ensemble – and a record that definitely set the tone for countless spiritual jazz sessions of the 70s! Dolphy recorded this session for Alan Douglas in 1962, and it features a larger ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jacana (with bonus CD)
Rune Grammafon (Germany), 2014. New Copy
A fierce combination of piano and percussion – the former by Sten Sandell, the latter by Paal Nilsson Love – two very well-matched improvisers! The tracks here are mostly long and dynamic – very freewheeling performances by both musicians, but at a level that really holds strong ... LP, Vinyl record album

Your Mama Don't Dance
Mainstream, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Funky organ and plenty of vamping – a really tight little set from the mighty Charles Kynard – who's working here with a really wide-ranging command of the keyboard! As with some of the other Mainstream Records sessions of the time, the backings here are somewhat full – arranged ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sahel Sounds, 2012. New Copy
A mindblowing follow-up to the first Saharan Cellphone collection – and like that one, a set that's comprised of music from underground sources in contemporary Mali – pulled from the memory cards of local cellphones! Don't think that the music's tinny or amateurish, though – as ... LP, Vinyl record album

I Give To You My Love & Devotion
Herakles (Finland), 2014. New Copy
Jimi Tenor is a man of many talents – able to work in modes from spacey to jazzy to funky, and everything in between – as is singer Nicole Willis, who most folks know from her deep funk recordings, but who reemerges here as a house vocalist in the team of Cola & Jimmu! The look of ... LP, Vinyl record album
