LP, Vinyl record album

4.80 5

Rare work from Art Pepper – and some of his best material from later years, too – all packaged in a really unique little set! The vinyl-only release brings together unreleased live gems from Pepper – all done with a great later group that features George Cables on piano, David Williams on bass, and Carl Burnett on drums – really cooking away here in material from a Japanese tour in 1981! Side one features the brilliant "Mambo Koyama" – a snakey groover with a bit of a Latin vibe – and wonderfully soulful work from both Pepper and Cables! "Over The Rainbow" is a great 14 minute take on the classic – performed at a level that really leaves Art lots of open room to solo in the middle, with a tone that's simply breathtaking! "Allen's Alley" completes the record – done here with a nice romping groove that draws a lot from the basslines from Williams. (A really nicely done release on Omnivore – on pink colored vinyl, with some circle punches in the sleeve to show it off – plus a download card.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Charles Gayle calls forth the ghost of John Coltrane wonderfully – in this freewheeling set that also features bass from William Parker and drums from sometime Trane-mate Rashied Ali!

Impulse, 1964. New Copy (reissue)
Sharp-edged John Coltrane at his best – a record that we'd rank right up there with Love Supreme, and which is a key transition point in Coltrane's musical ideas!

Got To Get Your Own
Cadet, 1975. New Copy (reissue)
Monster funk from Hammond hero Reuben Wilson – an album of hard-burning, bad-walking tunes that are a fair bit different than most of his other work! Although Wilson recorded some pretty traditional organ jazz for the Blue Note and Groove Merchant labels, this album has him working with his ... LP, Vinyl record album
Executive Suite 1
Polydor, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A gem of a full-length set from Executive Suite – a Philly quartet who are probably best known for their singles in the 70s, but who really find a great way to open up here in the course of an expanded album! Some of the tracks are nice and long – done in a two-part style that really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Thumb, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
One of the greatest albums of all time – a masterpiece of moody soul, spacey vocals, and jazzy vibes – all produced by the legendary Roy Ayers! Ramp take their name from the anagram Roy Ayers Musical Productions – and in a way, the group's the summation of all the genius that Roy ... LP, Vinyl record album
