Some of our favorite albums ever from pianist Muhal Richard Abrams – an amazing run of eight records for the Black Saint/Soul Note label – rich in fresh colors, tones, and new musical ideas! There's a sensitivity to some of these records that you don't always get with Abrams – a personal feeling that brings in a much-needed warmth to his complex compositional forms – often in collaboration with other players on the Chicago scene, but also with a wider range of avant players, especially from New York – where Abrams would have a great influence in the 80s. The lineup of musicians here is wonderful – a virtual who's-who of the jazz left at the time, at least from an American perspective – with performances from George Lewis, Roscoe Mitchell, Amina Myers, Thurman Barker, Baikida Carroll, Andrew Cyrille, Craig Harris, Stanton Davis, Marty Erlich, Dick Griffin, Cecil Bridgewater, Fred Hopkins, Dierdre Murray, and so many others. The set features 8 full albums, each in a tiny LP-styled sleeve – and titles include Siphumonesty, Mama & Daddy, Blues Forever, Rejoicing With The Light, View From Within, Hearinga Suite, Blu Blu Blu, and Think All Focus One.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

The DKV in all its fierce, raw power – a blistering onslaught of sounds from Ken Vandermark on clarinet and tenor, Mats Gustafsson on tenor and baritone sax, Kent Kessler on bass, Massimo Pupillo on electric bass, and both Hamid Drake and Paal Nilssen-Love on drums! Although all players are ... CD

Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), 1971. New Copy
A stone classic on the Black Jazz label – and one of the most unique guitar albums ever! We're not sure what the title meant originally – but over the past few decades, it's come to stand for some heavy heavy guitar work from the legendary Calvin Keys – a record that's really ... CD

Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), 1971. New Copy
An undisputed 70s soul jazz classic – and arguably the best album that Doug Carn ever cut for the Black Jazz label! The set is a masterpiece of spiritual jazz – with Carn on keyboards setting up the groove, and wife Jean singing some incredible vocals – very different than her ... CD
Black Saint (Italy), 1983. New Copy
One of the best-remembered Anthony Braxton albums from the 80s – and for good reason too, as there's a strength to the record that's evident from the very first note! The quartet here features longtime collaborator George Lewis on trombone, bassist John Lindberg, and percussionist Gerry ... CD
Black Saint (Italy), 1983. New Copy
A fitting album for the Rova Sax Quartet – as the angular, modern explorations of Steve Lacy virtually set the stage for the experiments of Rova and other similar groups in later years! The music here is all composed by Lacy, but the Rova variations are quite different altogether – a ... CD
Black Saint (Italy), 1986. New Copy
Anthony Braxton plays a host of horns on this powerful mid 80s set – a batch of numbers all based around his unique imagistic compositions! Braxton's reeds include alto, tenor, sopranino, and C melody sax – plus clarinet and flute as well – and other quartet members include David ... CD

Moserobie (Sweden), 2013. New Copy
A brilliant bubble of sounds from IPA – much more searing than you'd guess from the album's title – served up here in a sharp brace of trumpet, tenor, and vibes! The group's overflowing with that modernist Moserobie label energy we love so much – tight in construction, but still ... CD
Dootone/Boplicity (UK), 1956. New Copy
One of the few albums as a leader cut by legendary LA pianist Carl Perkins – an amazing talent on his instrument, and one who had an unusual "sideways" approach to the keys! Perkins kind of leaned alongside the piano – so that his body was parallel to the instrument, and his ... CD

Percussionist Babatunde's been on the scene for years – laying down some great work on albums by other folks, including many jazz funk classics. This album's a mix of percussion heavy jazz tracks, many of which have a Latin flavor – and Babutunde's joined by some top players sensitive ... CD
Dooto/Boplicity (UK), 1958. New Copy
A great little album that's every bit as wonderful as you might expect from its cover – one of the key late 50s sides as a leader from bassist Curtis Counce – cut with a killer lineup that includes Harold Land on tenor sax, Rolf Ericson on trumpet, and Elmo Hope on piano! The set's got ... CD
