CD


4.80 5

A stunning session by Ornette Coleman, and one that always seems to get overlooked in discussions of his albums for Atlantic! His quartet here features the amazing Scott LaFaro on bass, and a young Ed Blackwell on drums – both of whom give the tracks an amazing pulse that brings new energy out of Ornette and Don Cherry's solos – working in a modal groove that's as catchy as it is modern! All tracks are named after initials of titles of books by Sigmund Freud, including "T & T" (Totem & Taboo), "C&D"(Civilization and Discontent), "W.R.U.", and "R.P.D.D.". CD also features the bonus track "Proof Readers"!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1969. New Copy
One of the mellowest pianists in the world – heard here on an album that may well be his best! Louis Van Dyke has a style that's unlike anyone else we can think of – a way of advancing notes on the piano with a subtle sound that's clearly part of the Bill Evans generation, but which ... CD

Round Trip
Sony (Japan), 1970. New Copy
A pivotal record in the career of this brilliant Japanese saxophonist – a set recorded in New York with a trio players from the American scene – done in a style that's even more freewheeling than most of Sadao Watanabe's previous work! Watanabe had always worked with unusual tones and ... CD

Bad Walking Woman
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy
Supremely heavy work from organist Leon Spencer – one of his classic jazz funk sessions for Prestige Records, and a record that shows him opening up his sound a bit more than before! The album has Spencer working in a few different lineups – some with small groups that feature Melvin ... CD

People Moving
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1976. New Copy
Stellar reed work from Azar Lawrence – a player who's best known for his acoustic revival in recent years, but who could play with some excellent electric backings during the 70s! The set's less an electric funk outing than it is a spiritual jazz set, with keyboards and guitar in the mix ... CD

Doctor Is In & Out
Atlantic (Japan), 1976. New Copy
One of Yusef Lateef's funkier albums for Atlantic – and a record that features some great keyboard work from Kenny Barron! The liner notes indicate a current Lateef fascination with rhythm, and it tries to present this fascination in a way that implies a bigger intellectual approach to the ... CD

Instant Death
Atlantic (Japan), 1972. New Copy
Damn great work from the amazing Eddie Harris – a record that's got a perfect blend of jazz and funk, but still holds onto more righteous elements too! Eddie's using his electric sax in a really great way – not as a gimmick at all, but as a way of linking both the soulful and ... CD

Atlantic (Japan), 1974. New Copy
Heavy-jamming fusion from Billy Cobham – done at a time when he was already cutting plenty of heavy-jamming fusion! The album was recorded live in Switzerland and London – all very much in a post Bitches Brew approach to jazz that has all players going pedal to the metal in pursuit of ... CD

Aquamarine
Atlantic (Japan), 1987. New Copy
A sweet set of solo fusion from drummer Danny Gottlieb – formerly with Pat Metheny's group – and feel that's definitely in character with some of Methany's work from the period. Gottlieb is working here in the company of guitarist John Abercrombie and a number of cuts, and Joe Satriani ... CD

Super Mann
Atlantic (Japan), 1978. New Copy
A wonderful 70s set from Herbie Mann – and one that features some heavy help from P&P maestro Patrick Adams! The album's more of an Adams-directed affair than the usual Herbie set – as Adams produced and arranged all the tracks, and really takes Mann in the direction of a hip late ... CD

Funky Thide Of Sings
Atlantic (Japan), 1975. New Copy
Billy Cobham's always got something funky going on in his music – and this 70s classic for Atlantic Records has the drummer at the height of his powers – really mixing together jazz, rock, and funk impulses – all without some of the overindulgence of his more jamming records of ... CD

Waterbed
Atlantic (Japan), 1975. New Copy
A sweet electric set from the great Herbie Mann – one of his best of the time! Like a number of his contemporaries recording jazz for Atlantic, Herbie had moved pretty firmly into a funky soul mode by the mid 70s – adding in lots of electric instrumentation and vocals to keep up with ... CD

Mercury/Solaris, 1976. New Copy
One of the most spiritual, soulful albums ever from the great Charles Earland – a set that's almost his answer to the keyboard styles of Lonnie Liston Smith in the 70s – and done with a very spiritual vibe! We love Earland on Hammond – but here he also plays Fender Rhodes, ... CD
