Take This Bread/A Mass In Our Time

LP (Item 377676) Kilmarnock, 1973 — Condition: New Copy
Gatefold
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

A groovy little jazz mass – written by Galt MacDermot in collaboration with lyricist William Dumaresq – and done in a post-Hair style that's got plenty of subtle funky touches underneath the vocals! The work follows in the mode of similar albums from the time by David Axelrod, Howard Roberts, and even MacDermot – with a mass-like structure, but lyrics that are clearly contemporary – and music that's got plenty of nice bass at the bottom, and some nice Hair-like rhythms rolling through the mix. Vocalists include Salome Bey, Nel Carter, and the Howard Roberts Chorus – and from what we can tell, Bernard Purdie's helping out on drums! (Cool original pressing! Comes with a golden gatefold cover too!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sound Of Sonny
Riverside/OJC, 1957. New Copy (reissue)
A landmark album from Sonny Rollins – a record that really lives up to its title, as it shows the maturing tenorist really finding his own voice in jazz – a sound that's unlike any other! Rollins' Riverside work sometimes seems to get overlooked sometimes in light of his freer late 50s ... LP, Vinyl record album

Riverside/OJC, 1956. New Copy (reissue)
Bill Evans' first album as a leader – and a well-titled set that went onto transform the sound of the piano in jazz! The session isn't as lyrically free as some of Evans' later classics, but already has an undeniably fresh approach to the keys – one that's modern, yet never academic ... LP, Vinyl record album

Collectors Items
Prestige/OJC, 1953/1956. New Copy (reissue)
A session of "collectors items" that Miles Davis recorded for Prestige in the 50s – both dates that were too short to be issued as albums by themselves, combined here into one full length record! The first batch of material is from 1953 – and features Davis working with Sonny ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fantasy/OJC, Early 50s. New Copy (reissue)
Classic early live material from the Dave Brubeck Quartet – already humming along nicely with some great alto sax from Paul Desmond!

Hawk Relaxes
Prestige/OJC, 1961. New Copy (reissue)
The Hawk Relaxes, but never lets himself go – and a set like this is a great illustration of the gentle genius that made so many later Coleman Hawkins records so great!

Art Pepper + Eleven
Contemporary/OJC, 1959. New Copy (reissue)
A unique large group session from Art Pepper – one of his few this way as a leader, despite constant 50s presence as a sideman in big ensembles! Arrangements are by Marty Paich, who more than makes things swing – and there's a nice rhythm section dancing underneath a larger group ... LP, Vinyl record album

Folklords
Delmark, 2014. New Copy
One of the trippiest albums we've heard from Delmark in recent years – a really creative session from bassist Jason Ajemian, and one that links the label's avant jazz work to some of the deeper sides of Chicago's indie scene! Ajemian is free to work without any sense of genre or convention ... LP, Vinyl record album

City Life
Fantasy, 1975. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic album from this legendary jazz funk combo – a bit smoother than their first, but that's the great thing about it! The record has the band getting even tighter than before – coming up with an amazing jazz-inflected funk groove that still leaves us breathless after all these ... LP, Vinyl record album
