A lost treasure from pianist Horace Tapscott – material recorded live at the legendary Lighthouse club, done with a very hip group of players from the Nimbus Records scene! The tracks are quite long throughout – and often start with Tapscott musing into the groove with solo piano, soon joined by group members who include Reggie Bullen on trumpet, Gary Bias on alto sax, Roberto Miranda and David Bryant on bass, and George Goldsmith on drums. Tapscott's piano has plenty of sharp edges throughout, but these introductory moments also show his more contemplative side as well – making the long tracks a wonderfully rich portrait of his musical talents. Titles include "Acirfa", "Dem Folks", "I Remember Clifford", "Leland's Song", and a shorter take on "Acirfa". (Comes in a slim cardboard sleeve.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Apples + Oranges
Singlespeed, 2013. New Copy
The title's a great one for this project – especially if you understand the older reference of the saying – as the quintet manages to keep all the separate instruments at a level that's very distinct and individual, yet somehow creates a musical space of comparison as well! Cory Wright' ... CD
