Great tenor sounds from Wayne Escoffery – set to an excellent groove that mixes Fender Rhodes and acoustic piano! The album's one of the best we've heard from Escoffery in years – a date that really sets his horn free, yet also has a soulful focus, too – one that definitely comes from the Rhodes, handled by Orrin Evans, plus more keyboards from Adam Holzman. Basslines – from Hans Glawischnig and Ricky Rodrigues – are nice and warm, and often quite mellow – and Jason Brown's drums have this subtle approach that really lets the tenor and keyboards take the lead. Titles include "World Of The Bardo", "Banishment Of The Lost Spirit", "If I Am Who You Are", "Selena's Song", and "Presumed Innocence" – plus "Two Souls", which features Escoffery on soprano, blowing spontaneously alongside acoustic piano from Evans.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sonic Rivers
Tzadik, 2014. New Copy
An excellent session from trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith, with trombone and electronics by George Lewis, and alto sax by John Zorn! It's got the jagged, freely experimental vibe you'd expect from such a trio, but it moves with a deliberate sonic flow, hence the title, albeit with some sharp edges. ... CD

Sunnyside, 2014. New Copy
One of the most enigmatic albums we've ever heard from the legendary Abdullah Ibrahim – a set that not only features beautiful work on piano, but some flute and voice as well! The style is quite different than some of Ibrahim's better-known records – as the music has this really gentle ... CD

Up Above The Rock
Cadet (Japan), 1968. New Copy
One of the hardest, heaviest albums that Ray Bryant ever cut – even on the ballads – a monster little record that grabs you from the very first note! Ray did the arrangements for this one himself – working with his core trio that featured Ron Carter on bass and Grady Tate on ... CD

Round Trip
Sony (Japan), 1970. New Copy
A pivotal record in the career of this brilliant Japanese saxophonist – a set recorded in New York with a trio players from the American scene – done in a style that's even more freewheeling than most of Sadao Watanabe's previous work! Watanabe had always worked with unusual tones and ... CD

Bad Walking Woman
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy
Supremely heavy work from organist Leon Spencer – one of his classic jazz funk sessions for Prestige Records, and a record that shows him opening up his sound a bit more than before! The album has Spencer working in a few different lineups – some with small groups that feature Melvin ... CD

New World
Galaxy (Japan), 1978. New Copy

Natural Information
Eremite, 2010. New Copy Gatefold
Some of the most meditative, spiritual sounds we've ever heard from the great Josh Abrams – a record that goes way past his more familiar work on bass – even though that's pretty darn great! For this set, Abrams reaches out to a host of different instruments – including the ... CD

Columbia (Japan), 1967. New Copy
Really great work from Art Farmer – one of a handful of records from the mid 60s that have the trumpeter picking up a slightly sharper edge than before – a nice contrast to some of his more spacious albums on labels like Argo or Atlantic! The vibe here is almost a small group take on ... CD
