A wonderful little record – a real standout in both the careers of Milt Jackson and Coleman Hawkins! The album captures Hawk during his great later years – that time when his sound was even more soulful and inventive than ever – with lots of odd modern undercurrents that really work nicely with the album's slight Latin inflections – a bit like those you might hear on some of Hawkins' Impulse Records material from the same generation. Milt Jackson's vibes are great too – chromatic and edgey, and set up with rhythm support from Kenny Burrell on guitar, Tommy Flanagan on piano, Eddie Jones on bass, and Connie Kay on drums. Titles include "Indian Blues", "Don't Take Your Love From Me", "Sandra's Blues", "Stuffy", and "Close Your Eyes".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

George Duke (1986)
Elektra (Japan), 1986. New Copy
A real move forward for the George Duke keyboard sound of the 80s – and a set that has George using a fair bit of synclavier and linn drums in the mix! Things are almost even more electric than before – and that's saying a lot for Duke – with almost no acoustic instrumentation at ... CD

From All Sides
Atlantic, 1986. New Copy
An 80s classic from guitarist Hiram Bullock – a fusion set with a lot more smooth edges than the gritty surface of Hiram's well-played guitar on the cover! The set's quite polished, but still pretty great – never too overdone, and still based mostly around instrumentation by a core ... CD

Yusef Lateef's Detroit is a mighty funky one – a great summation of all the soulful sounds he'd crafted on previous records, but with a full groove that really points the way towards the 70s! Lateef's reeds are still the main attraction – great solos on tenor and flute – but ... CD

One of the most interesting records from the duo of Dwike Mitchell and Willie Ruff – thanks to the addition of the great percussionist Helicio Milito on drums! Helcio worked with the Tamba Trio, and has a very groovy sense of rhythm that works great with the inventive piano of Mitchell and ... CD

Mack Avenue, 2014. New Copy
Trumpeter Sean Jones's best album yet for Mack Avenue – a quartet set that finds him taking a conscious step into a more spontaneous style – and it works incredibly well! It's not that Jones has suddenly left his classic hard bop influences behind for a raw, free jazz aesthetic. There' ... CD
