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.

Al Cohn is one of those players who continued to stay great, even as the years went on – still growing and developing his amazing skills on tenor, although often without all the flair and fanfare of his contemporaries! But when Cohn got the right setting to show his skills, he could really ... CD

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

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

Blue Note (Japan), 1968. New Copy
Groovy Stanley Turrentine – blowing soulfully over larger arrangements by Thad Jones – swinging and lively, with a mod 60s pop feel that makes the album quite different than most of Turrentine's other work for Blue Note! The approach is one that we should hate, given how much we love ... CD

Blue Note (Japan), 1966. New Copy
Genius work from trumpeter Blue Mitchell – one of his most solid sides as a leader from the 60s, and a well-deserved treasure in the Blue Note catalog! The album's quite different than the straight soul jazz of Blue's early days on Riverside – or the more arranged dates of the late 60s ... CD
