Think what you want about Taylor, this session's a nice little cooker that was cut around the same time as Argo's famous hard swing sets by Paul Gonsalves, Jimmy Woode, and Clark Terry – possibly the same time as those sessions, as they all seem to overlap personnel and mood quite a bit. This one's got more than a few Ellingtonians in tow – including Gonsalves, Terry, Earl May, Ed Thigpen, and Harry Carney – but the mode of swinging is shorter and harder, with all tracks written by Taylor. Titles include "Tune For Tex", "Cu Blu", "Biddy's Beat", "Theodora", and "Mood For Mendes". (Black label Argo pressing with deep groove. Cover has a vintage price sticker and some splitting on the top & bottom seams.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

One of David Newman's grooviest albums of the 60s – a stripped-down set that features a quartet with Hammond and guitar – all in a vibe that's a bit more relaxed than some of Newman's other sessions for Atlantic! There's a gritty edge to the record – with organ by the obscure ... LP, Vinyl record album

Layers
Atlantic, 1973. Good+ Gatefold
This might well be the best album that Les McCann ever cut during the 70s! It's got some killer electric piano riffs, of the sort that are being sampled heavily today by the kids, and which are getting his music to a whole new generation. The tracks have a tight spacey funk sound, and they don't ... LP, Vinyl record album
