A beautiful record of light, lyrical piano jazz – and one of the best-selling jazz albums ever on Fantasy Records! Vince Guaraldi started the set as a tribute to the film Black Orpheus – and some of the album features his nice renditions of Jobim/Bonfa tunes like "Manha De Carnaval" and "Samba De Orpheus". However, Guaraldi also managed to pen his own amazing track – "Cast Your Fate To The Wind" – a lyrical romping piano instrumental that went onto become a huge charting instrumental hit during the 60s. The track's been heard a million times over the years, but it's still pretty darn great – and it's surrounded in a nice set with other tunes that have the same feel – including "O Nosso Amour", "Alma-Ville", "Since I Fell For You", and "Moon River".

Black Messiah
Capitol, Early 70s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
One of Cannonball's best, and wildest, from the Capitol/David Axelrod years. The set was recorded live at The Troubadour in LA, and the music's a wild mix of funk, jazz, and noise, with Cannonball on alto, Nat on cornet, George Duke on piano, Walter Booker on bass, and Airto on percussion.

Blue Note, 1965/1979. Near Mint-
A great slice from Jackie McLean's rare unissued 60s sessions for Blue Note – a rollingly soulful session that stands in stark contrast to some of his more modern sides of the time! The set's got Jackie working with a group that includes Lee Morgan on trumpet and Harold Mabern on piano ... LP, Vinyl record album
