4.60 5

Wonderful work from Horace Silver – part of a great run of late 70s sides for Blue Note that unlock a whole new side of his soulful talents! The vibe here is different than the previous United States trilogy – still very righteous, with an overt message too – but served up in these wonderfully warm tones – with loads of great woodwind passages over these wickedly angular rhythms – grooves that are somewhat like those Silver first started forging on his 27th Man album! The arrangements are sublime – and on some cuts handled by Silver, but orchestrated by Wade Marcus – with players who include Tom Harrell on trumpet, Bob Berg on tenor, Buddy Collette and Fred Jackson on flutes, and Jerome Richardson on soprano sax. The rhythm section is key, too – and features Ron Carter on bass and Al Foster on drums! Side one features "The Tranquilizer Suite" – with passages that icnlude "Keep On Getting Up", "Time & Effort", and "Perseverance & Endurance" – and side two includes the excellent "The Process Of Creation Suite" – with "Motivation", "Activation", and "Assimilation".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Concord (Japan), 1975. New Copy
Jake Hanna was one of the strongest drummers to work for Concord Records in the 70s – and as a result, the label often gave him a chance to showcase his talents as a leader – including this well-done live date with trombonist Carl Fontana! Fontana's a later entry to the school of ... CD

Jazz on the edge of a great leap forward – ultra-hip material from the Japanese scene of the late 60s and early 70s – a time when the grooves were really taking on a bold new formation! Just a few years before, Japanese jazz was great, but never had a voice of its own – often ... CD

Shadow Do
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy
A key early pairing of saxophonist Gary Bartz and producer Larry Mizell – working here together before their more famous collaboration on Capitol Records, in a sound that's even more freewheeling and open-ended! Bartz still has a bit of an edge in his horn here – the style laid down ... 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

Odyssey Of Iska
Blue Note (Japan), 1970. New Copy
A very unusual album for Wayne Shorter – recorded right around that 1970 point when Duke Pearson was exploring formats for Blue Note artists that included larger, often electric arrangements, pointing the way towards some of the later 70s soul jazz work on labels like Kudu or CTI! This set, ... CD

One of the hippest Curtis Fuller albums for Blue Note – and one of the rarest too – a set that was recorded in 1958, but only ever issued on vinyl in this rare Japanese pressing from the 80s! The date's quite unique – as it features "two bones", that is, two trombonists ... CD

Blue Note (Japan), 1962. New Copy
Sublime guitar work from the great Grant Green – working here in a setting that's a lot more understated than some of his other early material for Blue Note! The date's one of Green's classic outings with pianist Sonny Clark – material that allows both players to explore a more ... CD

Cheshire Cat
Blue Note (Japan), 1975. New Copy
Wicked keyboards from Ronnie Foster – and a set that really steps forward from his previous two Blue Note albums! The record really has Ronnie moving into a more rounded soul space – singing along with his keyboards, in ways that may well be aimed at making Foster the next Stevie ... CD

Elvin Jones Coalition
Blue Note (Japan), 1970. New Copy
A stunning early set as a leader from Elvin Jones – both a tremendous demonstration of the free energy he let loose after the passing of John Coltrane, and a set that's also still got some key Coltrane-esque elements! As with other Jones albums to follow, Elvin's got some key reedmen on hand ... CD
