4.60 5

One of the more electric projects we've heard from reedman David Murray in recent years – a collaboration with bassist Jamaaladeen Tacuma, who's still got the same righteous sound he had back in the 80s! The bass shades in the songs right from the start – as does the guitar of Mingus Murray too – but Murray's rock-solid and extremely soulful once he opens up, with tenor lines that are especially wonderful, plus a bit of bass clarinet – all heard here in a style that really takes us back to some of Tacuma's better moments of a few decades before. Other group members include Paul Urbanek on "recomposing keyboards" and Ranzell Merrit on drums – and titles include "How Sensitive", "Rendezvous", "Hotel Le Prince", "Theme On A Dream", "Bring It On", and "Yes We Can".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Jazz Haus (Germany), 1959/1960. New Copy
Wonderful work from the always-great Hans Koller – the tenorist whose work made such a huge impact on the German scene in the postwar years! Hans is captured here in two different live settings, both of them great – radio broadcasts with excellent fidelity, and which serve as a much-nee ... CD
ESP, Late 60s. New Copy
One of the coolest, weirdest records ever issued on the legendary ESP label in the 60s – and an album that really sums up the East Village crossroads from which the imprint sprang! The music here is a mad melange of art rock, hippie folk, sound samples, and avant jazz – all presented ... CD
Bethlehem, 1954. New Copy
A pivotal album in the career of Charles Mingus – one that really has him honing his sound, and reaching for that trademark mix of modernism and raw emotion that set a whole generation on fire! The album's a lot more freewheeling than other Mingus material from the time – although ... CD
Bethlehem, 1955. New Copy
One of the rare key albums cut by bassist Oscar Pettiford as a leader – an excellent 10" session for the Bethlehem label from the 50s! Although best known as a bassist, Pettiford was also a heck of a great player on the cello – which he uses here alongside bass! Pettiford's ... CD
Columbia/International Phonograph, 1963. New Copy Gatefold
Fantastic early work from flautist Jeremy Steig – a 60s quartet session for Columbia that came several years before the funky style of some of his later work – and a damn great record, with lots of soulful touches! Part of this has to do with the rhythm section of Ben Tucker on bass ... CD
Flight For Four (LP sleeve edition)
Flying Dutchman/International Phonograph, 1969. New Copy Gatefold
Spectacular work from one of the most groundbreaking groups of its time – the legendary John Carter/Bobby Bradford Quartet – quite possibly the hippest thing going in the LA scene of the late 60s! The group includes Carter on alto and tenor, Bradford on trumpet – working together ... CD
Columbia, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 9 CDs
Vintage Miles Davis – heard the way most folks first enjoyed these albums at the time – in glorious mono fidelity! The set brings together rare mono mixes of these gems from Miles – with a bold sound that really gets to the heart of the trumpeter's classic approach – and ... CD
Okeh, 2014. New Copy
A pretty great concept from tenorist Craig Handy – a set that seeks to rework the songbook of Hammond hero Jimmy Smith, but with rhythmic influences borrowed from the second-line styles of New Orleans! The approach is less hokey than you might expect – as the Nola influences come ... CD
Duope
Veto (Switzerland), 2013. New Copy
A completely cool blend of bass clarinet and cello – served up in a range of sounds that go way beyond the usual stuff from both instruments! Yet given the lineup of talent, the sounds are no surprise – as the record features both Keefe Jackson and Christoph Erb on bass clarinets, and ... CD
Jonathan Scales Fourchestra
Ropeadope, 2013. New Copy
CD...$8.99 12.98
Pretty groovy work from Jonathan Scales – a steel drum player by trade, but one who works here in a mode that's light years from any basic use of the instrument! The core approach is jazz, but the music is also inflected by lots of little twists and turns – a pastiche of styles and ... CD
Oriki (France), 1970s. New Copy
A tremendous compilation of rare work by one of the hippest African groups of the 70s – the mighty Orchestra Baobab, a combo who wove together many different strands of jazz, funk, and soul! The tunes here are all live ones – recorded in the mid 70s in the group's home turf at Club ... CD
Oriki (France), Mid 70s. New Copy
A definite eclectic groove here – music that has its roots in Mandingo and Dioula rhythms, but also features a fair bit of American funk and soul touches too – sometimes in the heavy grooves on the bottom, sometimes in the rumbling basslines and guitar parts too! The collection is a ... CD
